Petroleum supplies demand won't require restrictions CALGARY (CP) Canadian supplies of petroleum will be in such demand 1973 that no re- strictions will be imposed on its flow in the United States, Syn- crude Canada Ltd. said today. The prediction came in a brief to the Alberla Energy Re- sources Conservation Board which is considering an applica- tion by the company to in- crease its production from the Alhabasca Oil Sands. The firm, a consortium own- ed by Gulf Canada Ltd., Imper- ial Oil Ltd., Atlantic Rich- field Canada Ltd. and Canada- Cities Service Ltd., has been licenced to produce maximum to barrels of crude oil from the sands daily beginning in 197C.

Mr. Justice H. J. MacDonald imposed a seven-year term on the rape charge which in- volved an incident May H in a city apartment. On May 10 Bedard was charged with attempted non- capital murder when Anna Cristello, 11, was beaten with a hammer in her home. The charge later was reduced to wounding.

She suffered extensive fractures and perma- nent brain damage. CLAIMS RECORD. Two junior soldiers claimed a non stop chess record after playing 192 games in 52 hours at a Berkshire army base near Arborfield, England. association president Harold Cardinal, said Monday that criticism by Eric Shirt, who re- signed as public relations direc- tor, was "just sort of a parting blast at the association." Mr. Shirt said the organiza- tion was being poorly managed, that 80 to 90 per cent of the grants received by the associa- tion was paid to staff members and executives have high wages and soft expense ac- counts. A meeting of live southern tribes to establish a rival or- ganization has also been sched- uled, Mr. Shirt said. Mr. Mandamin countered that the association is not a grant-giving organization. "We provide Indian people at [he reserve level until advisory personnel, field-workers and programs to assist in their de- velopment. "I don't think it's surprising a large portion ol the grants we receive go to paying our staff." Grants to Indian bands come from the department of Indian affairs, he said. Regarding Mr. Cardinal's sal- ary of a year, Mr. Man- damin said it was in line with that received by executives of other Indian organizations. Expenses of S35 a day are al- lowed on out-of-town trips only.

Sync-rude said the outlook for I petroleum supplies is. bleak and I even wilhout restriction, Can- ada's contribution to the U.S. market will not have a signifi- cant impact. North America is under pres- sure to develop continental sup- plies which are more depend- able in times of political in- stability than those from South America, the Middle East and offshore areas. The impact of production from the oil sands on the en- vironment was touched only briefly with the company say- ing it was doing the best job possible. The hearing is expected to last at least one day. Syncrude. has estimated it has 2.44 billion barrels of crude oil in the area of the sands it has leased, enough to keep its oper- ation going for more than 50 years. Estimated initial capital re- quire m e n t s for the project range from to 5430 million with construction cists 90 per cent of the total including pipelines. The sands, 250 nv.les north- east of Edmonton, are estimat- ed to contain 630 million bar- rels ot oil of which 370 billion barrels are considered econo- mically recoverable. jNew chapter 'in company collapse TORONTO (CP) Another chapter in the collapse of Atlan- tic Acceptance Corp. in 1965 will be written about Oct. 15 when cheques go out to noteholders.

The question was raised Tues- day at the Canadian Catholic Conference, a meeting of Car- dinals, Archbishops and Bish- ops preparing for the synod in Rome which begins Sept. 29. Would parishioners consent to supporting a man and his fam- ily instead of just a single priest, asked conference presi- dent archbishop J. A. Plourde of Ottawa. This, he said, would have to be studied carefully before the Canadian arm of the church goes to Rome and suggests changing thousands of years of tradition. "Many times we fail to see many of the practical implica- said Rev. Marcel Ger- vais, a professor at St. Peter's Seminary in London, Ont. It would mean "very serious changes" in the priesthood and, he said, tongue-in-cheek, "the introduction of a man, his wife and their family inlo one of our parish rectories may be something not to be wished upon EXPERIENCE However, said Father Ger- vais, ordination of married men could give the church valuable knowledge and expe- rience it now lacks.

We n o w are lim- ited to adolescents, unproven men who are taken and trained in our seminaries. "These men, at the age of 25 or 2C, have not shown them- selves to be leaders." Archbishop Alexander Carter of Sault Ste. Marie, one of six men who will represent Canada at the month-long synod, touch- ed off the exchange by asking the conference what is to be gained by admitting married men to the church. Would it mean an end to celibacy sooner or later or was it "a devious way of gelling free and optional celibacy for the diocesan SUPPORTS CELIBACY Father Gervais replied that the experience of a married man "in the upbringing of a family and the running of a household" would be invalu- able. And, he said, although such a move might hasten change, "celibacy among the diocesan clergy no doubt will decrease and you have to face that re- alistically." Archbishop Maxim Hermam- uk of the Ukrainian Catholic Church in Edmonton said mar- ried priests could be useful. He said parishioners often Japanese to expand economy OTTAWA (CP) Japan may move its basic processing inter- ests to the Phibppines and Indo- nesia in the next few years and develop into a major exporter of so-called "clean" products and anti-pollution technology, says the author of a new Japanese- Canadian trade study. Keith Hay, associate profes- sor of economics at Carleton University here, told a news conference here he sees the Japanese economy continuing to expand at a rate of more than 10 per cent a year, once it has overcome its current difficul- ties. He also said he does not ex- pect the Japanese yen to rise much higher for the present than its six per cent apprecia- tion over its former pegged rate, but by 1975 it might go up another six to nine per cent. Mr. Hay wrote a book on Jap- i anese-Canadian trade prospects for the Private Planning Asso- I ciation of Canada, which was released Monday. He noted that i I he book was finished before I President Nixon's new economic policy was announced Aug. 15, forcing upward revision of most of the world's currencies. But he said his basic prog- nosis remains valid. Japan will probably be able to offset 1 higher prices for its goods abroad with lower costs for its i imported raw materials. Can- ada will still be a main supplier n[ raw materials.
