Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 11, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 24 LETHBRIDGE September 11 1973 Computers pick out suspected smugglers Piggyback MONTREAL (CP) Governments must "resist the temptation to yield to short- term political expediency' in shaping energy policy. Presi- dent J A Armstrong of Imperial Oil Ltd said Mon- day A vvorld supplv shortage ot crude oil. he said, can be ex- pected to keep prices moving upward for the balance of this decade Without mentioning the fed- eral government's temporary freeze of petroleum product prices. Mr Armstrong told delegates to the 50th educa- tion congress of Traffic Clubs International "Governments must under- stand the longer-term effects ot their policy directions such as the long-range impact of interference with price as a supply demand regulator He said recognition of eco- nomic realities and realistic government policies are of paramount importance in good energy management BALANCE NEEDED Governments should balance incentive programs to ensure that the private and public sectors receive a fair return from resource development. He said crude oil is an inter- national commodity and prices must respond to the dominance of Persian Gulf countries, which have 63 per cent of the reserves in the non- Communist world Otherwise, the incentive to develop additional conven- tional reserves, new sources or synthetics will be severely reduced As an example, Mr. Arm- strong mentioned that present mineable coal reserves in the world are estimated at more than eight trillion short tons, thermally equivalent to 30 tril- lion barrels of oil The technology exists to convert the coal into natural gas or synthetic oil But to make these processes economically feasible, the Canadian government's white paper on energy estimates that crude oil prices will have to climb from the present level of less than to the range. Two other points were made bv Mr Armstrong to the dele- gates. who came from Canada, the United States and Mexico Governments must balance the aspirations of en- vironmentalists with realities of supply requirements. En- vironmental standards must be based on facts rather than debatable, sometimes emotional, doomsday forecasts. There should also be a North American education program for better utilization of known energy reserves. A DC-8 jet, for example, in cutting down its speed by 14 miles an hour on a flight between Chicago and Los Angeles, will burn 180 pounds less fuel In capacity cutbacks by three U.S. airlines last year about 120 million gallons of fuel were saved.

The outbreak with, so far. 800 certain or suspected cases and at least 23 dead, has revealed neglect, decay and misery in southern Italy The infection scare has also increased north-south ten- sions. A Milan contractor who wanted to go hunting to Croatia, as he had often, was shocked when Yugoslav fron- tier guards turned him back because he had no anti- cholera vaccination cer- tificate made me feel as it I d come from some pesthole on the Indian the Milanese reported "Such humiliation is another gift from Naples What are we go- ing to get next from the south for all the money it has cost plague''" The contractor's complaint is being echoed in newspapers from Rome northward The largest daily of Bologna, for instance, said in an editorial that it wasn't the fault of noithern Italians if Neapolitans did not sweep their streets and wash their hands before eating Other press comments ask what happened to all the money that had been poured into the south. According to various estimates, between and 20 billion in develop- ment and aid funds have been spent in the mezzogiorno, Italy's poor "Midday during the last 25 years. Yet, the epidemic has bared, as President Giovanni Leone said in Naples on Friday, "a mortifying sight of problems and afflictions." Public Health Minister Luici Gui, admitting that the nation's not just the south's and social ser- vices were in dangerous dis- array, urged Italians to heed "the lessons of cholera." The Italian press is indulg- ing in recriminations about "the cholera scandal." One newspaper, for example, denounced "levantine corrup- tion" in the south that had tolerated shellfish hatcheries near spots where sewers dis- gorged raw wastes into the Bay of Naples Some of the country's biggest newspapers are at- tacking the state broadcasting monopoly for the way it had initially reported on the epidemic Radio and television did indeed for several days pre- sent scanty news reports on the cholera, while ottering lengthy reports on the Middle East. Chile and other distant places. The broadcasts also kept assuring the public that the disease was "under com- plete control" and that there was anti-cholera serum for everybody. Newspaper reporters, however, found quite a different story Neo-Fascist newspapers and politicians are among the most vehement critics of the authorities on account of the shortcomings in the south where cruise ships unloaded their passengers. At peak periods in the crush of homecoming tourists, in- quiries poured into the com- puters at the rate of 10 a se- cond from 485 terminal points, some of them or miles away, and were answered with the same split- second precision. Most of the returning travelers were unaware, as they faced a steely-eyed customs man, that he was typ- ing out their name, automobile license or passport number on a smau ivory keyboard carefully hidden from their view, and getting back either a quick "yes" or "no record" response on a hooded cathode tube.
