Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 13, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Friday. September 13, 1974 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Women's uniform New RCMP women recruits will wear blue trou- sers with a yellow stripe, brown jacket with beige shirt, blue tie and blue cap as the working uniform, the RCMP announced in Ottawa Thursday. Of the 292 women who applied as the first women members of the force, 32 have been selected from across Canada to serve beginning Sept. 16. They will train in Regina for 22 weeks, then begin recruit field train- ing which lasts six months in different parts of the country. Alberta energy corridor plan recommended EDMONTON (CP) A multi-million dollar energy corridor system keyed to the development of the Athabasca oil sands and involving a major distribution terminal 70 miles northeast of Edmonton has been proposed to the Alberta government. The proposal was contained in a government- commissioned report which suggests the distribution centre, to be called the Skaro Terminal, be located about midway between Andrew and Smoky Lake The corridor system, which could contain pipelines for crude from the oil sands, natural gas and other petrochemical products, highways, railroads, communications systems and power lines, would spread from north of Fort McMurray to Skaro. south to Fort Saskatchewan and Edmonton initially. Provision would be made for expansion east from Skaro to Myrnam and then branching off with the northern section going toward the Cold Lake oil sands area with the southern section stretching to Hardisty. The Alberta oil sands corridor study suggests the transportation corridor from Fort McMurray would connect the oil sand resources to a central hub that would then distribute products throughout the province, including perhaps facilities for exporting. It recommended setting up a crown corporation to administer all facets of the operation and an immediate start should be made on purchasing land for the Skaro Terminal, about five miles south of the North Saskatchewan River, five to 10 miles northwest of Andrew. The study also suggested construction of a new town near Skaro for employees, adding that both Smoky Lake and Andrew could be developed instead to provide accommodation. Another recommendation was that the provincial government assist in the financing and development of new oil refinery and petrochemical industries at sites along the corridor and emphasized that environmental damage along any such corridor must be held to a minimum. It's a lot of eggs despite what they say OTTAWA (CP) The way the eggmen tell it. 30 million eggs are not all that many when compared with annual production of about 5.7 billion.

New labor formula OTTAWA (CP) Labor Minister John Munro called Thursday for formation of a tripartite body to discuss national labor problems. He intends as soon as possi- ble to invite business, labor and government officials to form a continuing body to study labor relations, Mr. Munro said in a speech prepared for delivery to the Canadian Daily Newspaper Publishers Association. The minister was in Montreal seeking settlement of a Great Lakes shipping strike and his speech was delivered by Tom Eberlee, deputy labor minister. In notes for the speech, Mr. Munro said public confidence in the system for settling labor disputes is falling and there is "growing pressure on governments to play a stronger and perhaps more dominating role in industrial relations." "But what is desirable, sur- ely, is greater understanding of the fact that the onus for improved industrial relations falls jointly on labor, manage- ment and government." Mr. Munro said he soon will invite labor and business "to jointly participate with myself and my department in a thorough examination and debate of our legislation and programs, as well as of the system they are designed to serve." Although a record number of man-days was lost because of strikes and lockouts in the first half of this year, it was wrong to assume the current system of industrial relations is "on the rocks." Governments in democratic societies cannot legislate in- dustrial harmony and "turn- ing Parliament into a labor court would further emasculate the collective bargaining Mr. Munro said. "Outlawing strikes won't put an end to strikes. And widescale compulsory ar- bitration would also bring only increased disharmony and increased disruption." The press has some respon- sibility for improved in- dustrial relations, Mr. Munro said. This involved the media building "on their already good record of achievement by acknowledging that the system really isn't all bad." The labor minister said the public "is regularly, virtually daily, deluged with reports on strikes, lockouts, picket lines and other indications of indus- trial disharmony." "Certainly the public has a right to be informed on these happenings, but surely it needs to see the other side of the coin too." Despite the record for man- days lost in the first six months of this year, Mr. Munro said work stoppages occurred "in only 25 of 181 major contracts settled." "fn other words, 86.2 per cent of settlements during this period were reached without involving any work stoppage at all. As I said, a very different picture from what the headlines seem to be in- dicating He said the "somewhat lop- sided view" that can result could be balanced "through a little more exposure of the ef- fective, constructive side of industrial relations." Part of the problem, Mr. Munro said, might be that only one of every five Cana- dian daily newspapers has staff specializing in industrial relations. He said he has no intention of telling reporters "what to write and how to write it." COMBINATION New Canada Savings Bonds are a great combination of security, income and flexibility.

Laid end-to-end, for in- stance, that many eggs would stretch from Regina to Van- couver, a distance of more than 1.000 miles. Or they would make an omelet big enough to smother the core of Ottawa, including the Parliament buildings, an area of about five square miles. That's based on an aver- age two-egg omelet made in parliamentary cafeterias. Un- folded, they're about 36 square inches in sizeJ Thirty million eggs is enough to make 3.750.000 an- gel food cakes Each cake re- quires about eight eggs. Then too, that many eggs is enough to feed the 10.000 pub- lic servants in the federal ag- riculture department two-egg breakfasts for the next four years Or. put another way, it's enough to keep the 30-mem- bcr Trudeau cabinet eating two eggs a day for the next 370 years. It would take the average chicken years to pro- duce 30 million eggs, based on yearly production of about 225 1. When a cash bonus becomes due, simply present your bond to any Bank or authorized Trust or Loan Company and Caisse Populaire and you will get your bonus immediately. 2. For tax purposes, the Government of Canada proposes to permit taxpayers to treat cash bonus payments either as interest income or capital gains. As a result, if holders include such interest under the proposed deduction for interest income, the bonus payments will become exempt from tax. Alternatively the holder may find it to his advantage to include the bonus under the favourable tax treatment accorded to capital gains. 3. The cash bonus payments are in addition to all the other outstanding features of your Canada Savings Bonds. Bondholders who are taking advantage of compound interest privileges may continue to do so and will continue to be paid compound interest in the amounts specified at the time of issue of each series.
