WASHINGTON (AP) -The chairmen of the Democratic party organization at the state level say it is too early to tell who stands the best chance of becoming that party's can- didate for the 1976 U.S. presidential elections, in the wake of Senator Edward Kennedy's withdrawal. An Associated Press survey showed that senators Henry Jackson of Washington and Walter Mondale of Minnesota were the most frequently mentioned contenders, with Senator Lloyd Bentsen of Tex- as a close third. 'Municipalities need help' EDMONTON (CP) Bob Clark, Social Credit house leader, said Monday that the Alberta government should concentrate on helping municipalities with their financial problems. "It seems somewhat questionable that, at the same time the Alberta government is baying airlines, working out an agreement for investment in Quebec and assisting in On- tario government in develop- ing transit systems, municipalities like Edmonton and Calgary should have to look to foreign money markets in order to meet their budgetary Mr. Clark said in an inter- view.

Mother Cecilia Mary, the 85- year-old founder of the societv. said the work of the society was more important than the manner in which its members observe their religious duties.

Ivan Head, foreign affairs adviser to Mr. Trudeau, said the two men reviewed existing Canadian-Japanese ties and agreed that intensified efforts should be made to broaden relations.

Rockefeller's fortune 6no danger to country' WASHINGTON (AP) Nelson Rockefeller returns to- day for more questioning of his ability to become vice- president of the United States, having already satisfied at least one senator that his wealth represents no danger to the country. Indian war 'battle of words' BONNERS FERRY, Idaho (AP) Most of the Idaho State Police have left here to- day as the hostilities declared by the Kootenai Indians became largely a war of words. At one time, an estimated 70 troopers and 34 cruisers were in the Bonners Ferry area with headquarters at the local hospital. "We're phasing them out, but we're going to keep a few up there.' John Bender, the state's law enforcement chief. said Monday. Bender said no arrests have been made in connection with the Kootenai uprising since the troopers moved into Bonners Ferry Thursday night. "Everyone has calmed down and things are pretty well back to Bender said. The tribe, which has never had a treaty with the United States, seeks a 128.000-acre reservation, payments of up to an acre for 1.6 million acres of ancestral land in Idaho and Montana and hunting, fishing. water and mineral rights. Senator Robert Byrd, a Democrat from West Virginia, said in an interview that Rockefeller's perfor- mance before a Senate com- mittee Monday has eased fears that "big business, big oil and big banks will bene- fit." Both Senator Howard Can- non, chairman of the Senate rules committee, and Byrd said they saw little obstacle to confirmation of the former New York governor as vice- president. Committee members Mon- day asked Rockefeller about matters ranging from his per- sonal and family finances to his approval of New York's controversial! abortion reform law. "You were Rockefeller's wife, Happy, told him as she kissed his cheek after the session. Rockefeller repeatedly in- sisted his family's economic power is overrated and that Gas shortage in U.S. seen ATLANTA, Ga. (AP) In- dustry executives have warn- ed that the United States may run short of natural gas this winter. The warnings came Monday during the first of five days of public hearings on a program designed to reduce U.S. de- pendence on energy imports. "The situation in natural gas is much worse than the public has been led to believe." said Z. D. Bonner. president of Guelph Oil Co. "If we have a cold winter, we're going to have some very bad experiences." his own acts are not influenc- ed by his financial holdings. About the only cloud was questioning about his role in a 1972 effort for renegotiating of a controversial navy contract for F14 fighters being manufactured by the Grumman Aircraft Corp. on New York's Long Island. "As governor of the state of New York. I always tried to represent the best interests of my Rockefeller said. But he made clear that, as vice-president he would do nothing to favor New York over other states. DETROIT (CP) Most Ca- nadian action took place behind closed doors Monday as the ninth world energy conference opened five days of talks on a wide range of topics. Energy Minister Donald Macdonald met two United States cabinet members to discuss a 67-per-cent increase announced last week in the price of Canadian natural gas exported to the U.S. Today, the minister hoped to hold talks on international petroleum prices with Sheik Ahmad Zaki Yarnani, the Saudi Arabian minister of petroleum. The U.S. officials Treasury Secretary William Simon and Interior Secretary Rogers Morton said during the meeting they were disappointed at the price increase. But despite their unhap- piness, the Americans said there was no question of economic retaliation, Mr. Macdonald told reporters later. The two U.S. cabinet of- ficials suggested that Cana- dian prices also should be increased. Mr. Macdonald said he told them higher domestic prices are expected, but not neces- sarily to the same level as ex- port prices. The wellhead price of Alberta gas is being increased to 60 cents from 45 cents a 000 cubic feet, a move that could put the price of gas in the large Toronto market to between 80 and 90 cents, he said. At present, gas sells there for about 65 cents. Negotiations between the federal and provincial govern- ments on domestic-price in- Mr. creases are continuing, Macdonald said. Ottawa said Friday that ex- port prices will be increased to a cubic feet from the present average price of 60 cents. The increases are effective Jan. 1 for most ex- ports, and Nov. 1 for gas piped into the U.S. from British Columbia. Additional cost to the U.S. will total about million, Mr. Macdonald said. About 30 per cent of that amount will go to producers in Alberta, the remainder being absorbed by federal and, provincial royalties. Alberta Power data sought EDMONTON (CP) Groups opposing a rate increase for Alberta Power Ltd. tried to obtain more financial data from the privately owned utility Mon- day. The Alberta Union of Rural Electrification Associations made its bid as the public utility board resumed hearings after a four-month recess. The union, which represents Alberta fanners, said one-third of its membership would be subject to 16-per-cent increases in electric bills if the rate increase is approved. The Consumers Association of Canada supported the move to obtain the detailed financial figures, and more arguments were expected to be aired today. has been done to mould a rela- tionship bringing maximum benefit to both countries, he said. "Each (leader) really did look upon this as a new begin- ning no question about it." He told reporters that Mr. Tanaka dealt quickly with the main Canadian sore point in existing high percentage of raw materials exported to Japan. While anxious to expand trade further, Canada wants more secondary manufactur- ing done at home and a higher percentage of finished products leaving the country. More than 98 per cent of all goods sold to Japan in 1973 were in raw or unfinished form. By contrast, more than 70 per cent of all Japanese sales to Canada were finished goods. Mr. Head said the visiting premier took pains to empha- size that Japan understands and accepts the Canadian position and is willing to promote increased secondary manufacturing. This would mean .more Japanese investment in Cana- dian plants. Mr. Trudeau emphasized that Canada has both the space and technology to build clean modern plants and process more raw materials before they leave the country, Mr. Head said. Japanese investment in Canada totalled about million last year, about three per cent of the approximately billion invested abroad by Japanese businessmen. Other matters raised during the two-hour session included long-term supply contracts, the northern Alberta oil sands and the Canada-Japan ministerial council. The oil sands reference was brief, Mr. Head said. Mr. Trudeau said only that Japan would be a natural place to look for capital when the time came for large-scale ex- ploitation.

Kissinger views Cyprus problem OUR WINTER BOOTS Broken Lines and Sizes Reg, to NOW ONLY 19 MflRWHifi WORLD OF SHOES 317A Sixth SI South Thursday till 9 p.m. k h UNITED NATIONS, N.Y. (AP) U.S. State Secretary Henry Kissinger comes to grips today with the stubborn problem of Cyprus and the strained relations between the United States and Greece. Kissinger scheduled separate meetings with Greek Foreign Minister George Mavros and Turkish Foreign Minister Turan Gunes, who are attending the United Nations General Assembly. There was speculation that Kissinger might visit Cyprus during his trip to the Middle East in October and try to break the deadlock over the future of the Mediterranean island. Kissinger offered a month ago to go to Cyprus and mediate between Greece and Turkey, but the Greek response was chilly. The Greeks blamed the United States because it did 'Single trial could solve Nixon pardon WASHINGTON (AP) A United States federal judge has proposed that a single tnal court resolve all questions arising from the pardon of former president Richard Nixon. U S. District Judge Charles Richey said Monday "U might be desirable to have at least one trial court resolve whatever questions are extant with respect to the validity of the agreement and with respect to the validity of the pardon The comment came as Richey postponed action on attempts to retain some of Nixon's Watergate tapes for IT rel led rrfn nil not prevent the Turkish inva- sion of Cyprus. There were anti American demonstrations in Athens and other Greek cities. Mavros also spoke to the as- sembly on Monday and term- ed Turkey's occupation of northern Cyprus "the rape of a small, nonaligned country by its far stronger neighbor." He said that if the United Nations failed to force the Turks to withdraw from Cyprus, it would founder "in the morass of moral weakness" and this could kill the world organization. Turkish Ambassador Osman Olcay accused Mavros of gross distortion. He said Turkey sent troops to Cyprus to save it from becoming a province of Greece. Turkey's intention, he said, was to allow Cyprus to become "in- dependent, nonaligned. if so desires."
