Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 20, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 20 L.ETHBRSDOE HERALD Thurtdny, 20, 1973 Syncrude decision praised EDMONTON (CP) The decision of Syncrude Canada Ltd. and the provincial government to proceed with development of the Athabasca oil sands is "a tremendous step forward, says Werner Schmidt, Alberta Social Credit leader. He made the statement after Premier Peter Lougheed announced agree- ment over conditions of the extraction plant 225 miles northeast of_Edmon- ton. "I can see tremendous potential in the tar sands, not only from this plant but with plants three, four and five coming on said Mr. Schmidt. He praised an agreement under which the province will receive 50 per cent of Syncrude's profits in the form of royalties. But some questions were not answered in the premier's televised speech, such as the cost of the pipeline from the oil sands, the cost of the area's power plant and who will control the board of the Alberta Energy Company, said Mr. Schmidt.

Harvest technique in- volves beating bushes so berries fall off, then flood- ing fields so berries can be floated out. Newspaper increases its prices WINNIPEG (CP) The Free Press has announced that effective Oct. 1 the single-copy price will increase to 15 cents from 10 and home- delivery rates to 75 cents a week from 60. The Saturday edition, which includes Weekend Magazine, will go to 20 cents from 15 cents. In its announcement, the newspaper cited rising costs and said the new price will be in line with such cities as Toronto, Montreal, Edmonton and Calgary Here's the Who's Who of car gas guzzlers WASHINGTON (AP) -The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) re- leased today its 1974 Who's Who of Gasoline Guzzlers, showing that the season's new cars will get slightly fewer miles per gallon, on the average, than the 1973 models. With some new cars not yet tested, EPA reported an over- all average of 15.1 miles a gal- lon on the 376 vehicles checked, three-tenths of a mile less than the 1973 average. The averages ranged from 24.4 miles a gallon for pound cars to 15.3 at pounds, and on down to a low of 8.3 in the heavyweight pound class. All gallonages are American standard. The most economical car tested was a Honda Civic at 29.1 miles a gallon, followed by Toyota's Corolla-1 coupe and sedan at 27.1 and 24.8. Rock-bottom among the EPA tested cars was the pound Ferrari-365 GTB-4 with a 268-cubic-inch engine a mere 6.4. Only a drop or two better was a Oldsmobile Toronado with automatic transmission, whose 445- cubic-inch engine rolled it CHARTERED ACCOUNTANT REQUIRED A Chartered Accountant is required by a practising professional firm in Lethbridge.

Reply in confidence stating experience and salary expected to BOX76 HERALD only 6.8 miles on one gallon. EPA collects fuel-economy data while verifying anti- pollution performance in a test that simulates urban driving. The agency issued its first gasoline-mileage listing on 1973 vehicles last April, to en- courage fuel economy and thereby reduce pollution and ease the energy shortage. For 1974 cars, EPA propos- ed the voluntary display, on new cars, of gasoline-mileage data by weight class and in- dividual model. Most manufacturers intend to par- ticipate. DRIVER A FACTOR Within any production run, vehicles of identical design and equipment may vary widely in their actual on-the- road fuel economy, depending heavily on the habits of the drivers. But EPA says the test find- ings and averages provide at least a comparison of relative fuel economy characteristics that can be weighed by car- buyers. As usual, sheer weight is the biggest mileage-stealer; as auto weight rises from to pounds, performance drops from the average 24.4 miles a gallon to 15.3, losing about one mile a gallon for every 100 extra pounds. Above pounds, the weight effect works less rap- idly, with performance dropp- ing less than half a mile a gallon for each 100 pounds. The mileage-stickers dis- played by participating manu- facturers this fall were de- signed by EPA and will show, at least, the average fuel economy for each weight class and the weight class of the individual car. As an optional feature, the sticker may also display the specific EPA-tested gasoline mileage for that particular model. Here is a summary of the average fuel economy and top performers in each of the 10 EPA weight classes: pounds, average 24.4 miles a gallon: Honda Civic 29.1; Toyota Cord coupe 27.1 and sedan 24.8. pounds, average 21.5: Datsun B-210 manual transmission 24.9; Toyota Corolla-2 sedan 22.6; Datsun B-210 automatic 22.2. pounds, average 18.9; Subaru SW 22.7; Volkswagen convertible 15 22.6; Toyota Corolla 2 sta- tion wagon 21.1. pounds, average 18.5: Chevrolet Vegas hatchback 24.6; Ford Pinto 22.8; Dodge Colt SW 22.8. pounds, average 15.3: Chevrolet Vega kamm- back 20.0; Ford Pinto wagon 19.6; Toyota station wagon 19.4. pounds, average i3.9; Ford Comet 19.9; Volvo- 145 18.4; "88" Land Rover 17.7. pounds, average 11.3; Ford E-100 18.9; Ford F- 100 16.4; Chevrolet Nova hatchback 15.7. pounds, average 9.2: Buick Century wagon 16.7; Ford Montego wagon 11.4; Chevrolet Impala Sport Sedan 11.0. pounds, average 8.3: Cadillac Eldorado 10.4; Chevrolet Impala estate wagon 10.0; Buick estate wagon and Chevrolet Caprice wagon 9.6.

When Libya's government announced Sept. 1 that it was nationalizing a 51-per-cent share of the "majors" operating here, it gave them a 30-day not reported at the which to accept the measure. The announcement, climax- ing celebrations of the fourth anniversary of the coup which toppled the Libyan monarchy and brought the energetic regime of Col. Muammar Gaddafi to power, came after the expiry of an ultimatum from Libya to the majors. In- volved were the American majors, Texaco, Standard Oil of Oalifomia, Mobil and Exx- on, and the Anglo-Dutch Shell concern. The ultimatum called on them to agree to the same kind of terms which had been accepted in August by big independent oil companies operating Marathon, Amerada Hess and Occidental. The August agreement sig- nalled the collapse of the com- mon front major and inde- pendent companies had once tried to present to Libyan demands, and the Libyan leaders were quick to follow it up. SQUEEZE APPLIED The independents accepted compensation on the basis of net book value, with buy-back prices well above previous market prices. buy-back prices are those at which Libya would sell back to the companies oil from its share.) The majors' basic worry is of setting a precedent which might affect their more im- portant interests in the Per- sian Gulf area, if countries there try to follow "the Libyan example. The independents, on the other hand, are heavily de- pendent on production in Libya, the world's fifth- ranking oil-producing country with a daily average of 2.2 million barrels. With the back of the major- independent alliance effec- tively broken, Libya was in a comfortable position to press a hard line.
