Larger share of seaway costs to be urged at talks By BOB DOUGLAS OTTAWA CCF) Canadian government negotiators are ex- pected to urge the U.S. govern- ment to assume a larger share of the operating costs cf the St Lawrence seaway at upcoming talks on the waterway. Should the two c o u n t r i agree on a new sharing of costs, there is a possibility of in- creased tolls on the seaway, governmont sources say. No date has been set for the meetings though a transport de- partment spokesman said they will begin "as soon as practica ble." The Canadian negotiators will be armed with the D. W. Can- report on seaway financing which 5ays that the U.S. bene- fits more from Canadian sea- wav 'acilities than Canadian from American installations. 'We arc pay in g more th an our fair share of operating and maintenance said a gov- ernment source. This was par- ticvlarly true on the Well and Canal where nil operating cost.s wore paid by Canada while muc-h of llio traffic was by U.S. CExriers going to U.S. porls. The Carr report, submitted to the government late last year. ssid Canadian expenditures in 1969 were 5112 million compared with S31.3 million for Llie U.S. U.S. DECISION SOUND The report says that a com- parison of costs and benefits of the seaway indicates that "U.S. opposition lo tolls is a normal decision based on economic con- siderations." The U.S. has decided lo main- tain tolls at their present level and to abolish interest charges on Lhe capital debt of U.S. sea- wav facilities. The Carr report suggested the Canadian government should unilaterally raise tolls 27.6 per cent over five years if the U.S. refuses to go along with a toll increase. Transport Minister Don Jamieson ruled out a toll in- crease this year birt left the door open for further negotia- tions next year. The two countries have co-op- erated on tolls since the scawav was opened in 1959. Should Lhe U.S. agree to swal- low a larger slice of the costs, its opposition to a toll increase could diminish. Bus line offers hostess service EDMONTON (CP) When you climb aboard the bus nt four o'clock and Lhe hostess shows you to your seat, you hostess? On a bus? Aw c'mon fellas! It rrught sound like some- body's pulling your leg but it's true. Wednesd ay. Greyhound Bus Lines have started offer- ing' "Canada's first V.I.P. ex- ecutive coacli service" between Edmonton and Lethbridge, via Calgary, complete with attrac- tive hostesses. At for the 320 miles to LeUibrLdge from Edmonton and at for the 190 miles to Calgary Greyhound hopes to at- tract harried businessmen fed up with air travel and who den't want to endure saich things as crying babies and closely-packed seats. The firm started with an or- dinary coach, took out nine of the seats and moved the others around to give more leg room, Then they installed two tables about halfway down the bus between pairs of scats fac- ing each other suitable for working on business papers or for a relaxing card game. From a stainless steel tn-ble at the back, Lhe hostess serves hot and cold beverages, sand- wiches pjnd magazines all in- cluded in the price of a ticket. For comparison, the price ot a regular bus ticket from Ed- monlo-n to Calgary is and to Lclhbriclge The V.I.P. serial leaves Lethbridge at a.m. daily ard arrives in Calgary at 10 a.m. from, after a 15- minute stop, it collects pas- sengers at a couple of major hotels before leaving for Ed- monton. Three other hotels are stopping points in Edmonton before arriving at the bus de- pot at p.m. two hours 10 minuses later, the return trip begins with the same stops.

There were twu hostesses on the inaugural trip with about a dozen passengers Gloria Kucheran and Gail Akins, both of Lethbr id ge and both em- ployed by Smitty's Pancake Houses Ltd., the food caterer for Greyhound. Miss Akins said a third girl soon would join the hostess crew and they would begin a se- ries of rotating shifts. Until then, they will work two days and then have two off. "There's not really all that much we have b? do besides looking after the said Miss Akins, a pretty bru- nette who has been an airline stewardess and nurses' aide. "Other than passing around sandwiches and drinks and making sure everyone's com- fortable, it's really quite sim- ple Walter Tytula, district super- intendent for Greyhound at the Canadian head office in Cal- gary, said a dozen passengers is the break-even point on the executive coach. "We'll probably keep this ex- periment going until the end of the year before we make up our mind about he said. "There were only about a dozen aboard today but. give us time to reach the public then I think we'll see quite an im- provement. We think it's going to work out very well." Farm aid suggested by Turner REGINA (CP) The fed- eral government should consid- er compensa tin g farmers who will be hurt by the new sup- plementary U.S. import tax, Ted Turner, president of the Saskatchewan Wheat Pool, said here. He said the federal govern- ment, has "the right, indeed the obligation, to protect its own industry."
