Canmore Mines Ltd., said Wednesday the company will experience a sharp increase in employment during tile next tlirce years ns (ho result of a major coal sale to a Quebec company. Announcement of I he sale was marie in Edmonton by Allan Sulatycky, Rocky Moun- tain MP, during the Canadian coal conference.

FIRST TIME It represents the first time Alberta coal has replaced Pemv sylvania antliracite in the East- em Canadian market, he said. "We are after the whole East- ern Canadian market and this is definitely a significant break- through. will be depleting he two existing undcrg round mines and opening a major one." The sale, to Quebec Iron and Titanium Corp. in Sorcl, in- volves shipment of a minimum tons at the start of the contract, increasing to tons in 1977. Mr. Gregory, said no set term is included in the contract which will be handled on a year-to- year basis.

IN YOUR LETKBRIDGE HERALD WEEKEND fAAGAZINE Mayor John Lindsay and city council leaders said pas- sage of a new bill will give the city a "badly-needed law enforcement tool t o outlaw the so-called massage parlors which foster prostitution, lewd displays and similar il- legal acts." The bill demands that al! legitimate parlors in future must gain a licence from the city consumer affairs com- missioners at an annual fee of Once licensed, the parlors may employ only masseuses authorized to practise under the state education law and who have met stringent state requirements. Lindsay described the new legislation as part of a co-or- dinated attack on vice in New York's midtown area where police are swooping on por- nographic peep shows and ho- tels known to function, as brothels. will pay "except that will be making a margin of profit." To process the coal to meet the characteristics of the Peiui- ;ylvania alternative, Canmore Mines will build a two stage processing plant expected to cost million. The manager said the plant involves technology new to the Canadian mining industry. The company hopes to begin build- ing in the next seven months. 'Our employment will rise fairly fast. In one year, it should go to 200 or 225. Then, there will be about another 200 hired in the next two years." The company has laid off 170 workers this year ss the Japa- nese coal market slumped, Mr. fiulatycky said in a tele- phone interview the federal gov- ernment may arrange grants to aid construction of the proces- sing plant. "If this can be done success- fully, we may be able to reach the situation where Eastern Can ada will be taking aH its coal from Western Canada instead of Pennsylvania." The process for making the coal suitable involves washing it thoroughly and firing it wfth temperatures from 650 to de- grees centigrade to burn off volatile impurities. To meet the characteristics, all the coal must come from underground mines and not the company's strip mine in the Canmore area. WIFE THREATENED Calgary Aid.
