Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 18, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Wednesday, September Scottish vote crucial in British election EDINBURGH (Reuter) The Scottish vote will be a crucial factor in the British general election on Oct. 10. Oil discoveries off the Scot- tish coast have revived latent nationalist feelings in this sparsely-populated northern part .of the United Kingdom, eroding the argument that the Scots cannot afford independ- ence. With England's future now heavily dependent on Scottish oil wells, slogans of the resur- gent Scottish National Party iSNP) challenge their coun- trvmen with the thought: ''Rich Scots or poor put more crudely, should the coming oil wealth be spread only among Scotland's 5.5 million people. or shared with their 50 million fellow Britons? The four major parties which will contest Scotland's 71 parliamentary seats have u.icady recognized the new realities beyond England's northern border and made various proposals for decentralizing power to Scot- land. The SNP won seven seats in the Feb. 28 general election, up from one seat in the 1970 election, and hopes to gain another 15 seats this time. With 150 new branches formed in the last six months, the party is campaigning on such slogans as "Don't let London drain our oil The SNP said it would accept, as an interim measure, a recent govern- ment discussion-paper recommendation that a directly-elected Scottish Assembly led bv a' Scottish prime minister be established in Edinburgh. The assembly would have limited powers of legislation and expenditure, but ultimate power and responsibility would remain at Westminster. The SNP, viewing the assembly as a stepping stone to full independence, also wants it to be given major control of Scottish oil. Insurance firms seek solution to inflation woes CALGARY (CP) The Canadian Life Insurance Association is looking for an indexing system to protect in- surance buyers from the effects of inflation but it's go- ing to take some time to find a solution. Rob Dowsett of Toronto, association president, said Tuesday. Mr. Dowsett told a news conference the association is studying the problem but solutions appear to be both ex- pensive and complicated and while some companies are beginning to build riders against inflation into policies now. an industry-wide solution appears to be a long way off.. Mr. Dowsett told the Association of Provincial In- surance Superintendents of the initiatives the insurance industry has taken to protect consumers, including new approaches to registering retirement savings plans for taxation purposes. Not only are insurance buyers being hurt because inflation is eating up their protection, but insurance companies also face dif- ficulties because they are locked into fixed contracts but costs keep rising, he said. The billion which Cana- dian insurance companies in- vest is returning a greater rate of interest, which is replacing some of the drain of inflation, but administrative costs in particular are rising and premiums are remaining the same, he said. Insurance companies are restricted to investing 25 per cent of their capital in stocks, 10 per cent in mortgages and the rest in bonds and he suggested most companies do not wish to see that mix changed. He said it is perhaps in- appropriate for insurance companies to gamble with in- vestments any more than they do since they face com- mittments to meet the guarantees they have made to their policy holders. Irrigation proposal confirmed A social Credit plan to set aside up to million over the next 10 years to provide interest-free loans to Alberta irrigation districts over the next 30 years is only the first of several suggestions from the party on how windfall oil revenues should be used, par- ty leader Werner Schmidt said here today. Speaking at a press conference, Mr. Schmidt said by passing an irrigation dis- tricts rehabilitation trust fund act at the fall sitting, the provincial legislature would use the natural resources revenues to the best advan- tage. Ray Speaker, SC-Little Bow, said under the Socred plan, individuals or groups within irrigation districts and the districts themselves could apply for loans to upgrade, rehabilitate and expand the irrigation land in the province. This would improve water use efficiency and productivity and value of land. The recipients of the loans, not the people of Alberta would be responsible for pay- ing for all capital im- provements, leaving the million fund intact, drawing interest. for 'future generations, he said. The interest for the loans would be paid by the province from money now given in the form of grants to the individual irrigation districts. The press conference con- firmed a report on the Social Credit proposal carried by The Herald Wednesday. U.S. continuing fuel shipments Births, Deaths, In Memoriams I Cards Of Thanks By JOHN W. FINNEY New York Times Service WASHINGTON India is prepared to give assurances that none of the nuclear fuel obtained from the United States will be used for con- ducting atomic explosions, a spokesman for the Atomic Energy Commission has dis- closed. As a result, according to the spokesman, the United States plans to continue the shipment of enriched uranium fuel for the Tarapur atomic power plant that was built in India with American technical and financial assistance. The U.S. had threatened to cut off the supply of atomic fuel unless India gave assurances that the plutonium produced in the atomic power plant that was built in India with American technical and financial assistance. The U.S. had threatened to cut off the supply of atomic fuel unless India gave assurances that the plutonium produced in the atomic power plant would not be used in any type of nuclear explosion. The U.S. had sought the assurances after India last May detonated what it described as a peaceful nuclear explosion with plutonium that it had obtained in a reactor supplied by Canada. Initially, according to of- ficials. India refused to provide specific assurances, giving instead what officials regarded as an ambiguous, un- responsive reply to an American letter. The issue was raised again in discussions in Vienna in the Ginger Beer FOOD VALUES Powder Detergenl King Size. 5 Ib. SOUP MIX EGGS Grade'A'Large Size Sunlight Liquid Detergent, 24 oz.

Sethma, chairman of the Indian Atomic Energy Commission. The two officials are in Vienna to attend a meeting of international atomic energy agencies. As a result of those dis- cussions, an Atomic Energy Commission spokesman said, "we are expecting the necessary assurances shortly" from the Indian government. In the assurances, according to the spokesman, the Indian government would specify that any plutonium produced in the reactor would only be used as fuel in the Tarapur power plant, thus ruling out the diversion of the fissionable material into an explosive device. On the basis of the an- ticipated assurances, the spokesman said, the AEC is proceeding with plans to make a second shipment of uranium fuel for the Tarapur plant next month. The first of four plann- ed shipments for refuelling the power plant was made shortly after the Indian explo- sion last May. Shortly after the explosion. India entered into an agree- ment for atomic cooperation with Argentina. The timing of the agreement shortly after the Indian explosion may have been coincidental, in the opi- nion of American officials. Officials of the arms control and disarmament agency, however, are following im- plementation of the cooperative agreement with some concern since both nations are regarded as likely to acquire atomic weapons. Neither has signed the nuclear nonproliferation treaty, which .prohibits a nation from ac- quiring atomic weapons. Marijuana could help cancer sufferers DENTON. Tex. (AP) A chemical derivative of mari- juana may help terminal cancer patients endure their final days by alleviating much of the pain and anxiety, a North Texas State University researcher says. Dr. Joel Butler, chairman of the university's psychology department, told reporters Tuesday that the finding is the result of a year of study with Dr. William Reglson of Virginia Commonwealth University, a cancer specialist. Butler said the study show- ed marijuana works like an antidepressant and that patients got less morbid after taking the drug. Delta 9-THC. The study also showed that "emotional instability in the patients decreased while be- ing treated with the drug." Butler said the study began with 60 advanced cancer in- patients and was later follow- ed up with a second study of 200 out-patients. The real value of the mari- juana derivative may be in its quality as an anti-depressant to fight the depression and anxiety which afflicts ter- minal cancer patients. Butler said. Butler said the study also found that the drug was help- ful in relieving pain and lighting appetite loss in canrcr patients PRUNE PLUMS9Q B.C.
