Canadian supplier cancels gas contract WASHINGTON (CP) A natural gas contract, calling for the sale of 400 million cubic feet a day fay an Alberta firm to companies in the western United States, has been cancelled by the Cana- dian supplier, it was learned Friday There was no immediate reason given for the cancellation. In a request for an order "terminating proceedings." filed before the Federal Power Commission, the U.S. companies said they had been informed by Pan-Aiberta Gas Ltd "the Canadian supplier, that gas sales contract has been cancelled.' The U S firms had been seeking FPC permission to import transport and sell the gas over a six-year period and had been prepared to spend more than million on facilities to handle the gas from Kingsgate. B.C., through Idaho, Washington, Colorado, California and Arizona. The applications had been proposed to import gas "for transportation and sale" to two mam jurisdictions, El Paso Natural Gas Co. of Tex- as and Northwest Pipeline Corp. of Salt Lake City, Utah. Southern California Gas Co was involved on a smaller scale. A total of million in facilities would have been built by the three companies to receive and transport the gas. Interstate Transmission Associates, a partnership of Pacific Interstate Transmis- sion Co. and Northwest Energy Co had planned to import the gas and build million in facilities to tran- sport it to two points in ore- gon.

At Friday's opening session, Ford heard blunt advice that he come up with new policies and a fresh economic team. Easing some of the sting of criticism from Democrats, labor, young people, women, the poor, and consumer representatives were oc- casional expressions of thanks that the president had taken the trouble to hold the summit and participate personally. By and large, Ford sat through presentations by representatives of special interest groups who tended to view America's grave economic problems in terms of the plight of their own con- stituencies. Representative Sam Devine (Rep. Ohio) said at one point: "Everyone wants to exercise economy in every program ex- cept his own." Carol Foreman, executive director of the Consumer Federation of America, told the president she went to a pre-summit conference on natural resources thinking the objective was to find ways to lower prices, but discovering, as she saw it, that fellow conferees wanted to increase prices for natural gas, oil or whatever interest they happened to represent. Ford, who displayed mara- thon endurance as more than half the crowd straggled away during Friday's day-long ses- sion, said: "This is a welcome breath of fresh air to have this frankness and candor." Federal Reserve Board Chairman Arthur Burns said the easy money policies he U.K. Tories move into heard recommended would fuel inflation and lead to even higher interest rates. At the same time, Burns said "there will be no credit crunch in our country." Ford seemed receptive to appeals that some way be found to ease inflation's heavy pressures on the poor. FAMILY COURT 'FAVORS RICH' TORONTO (CP) Justice Minister Otto Lang said Friday that Canada's family court system often appears to discriminate in favor of the rich. Speaking at the annual dinner of the provincial judges' association, Mr. Lang called for unification of all family courts into one court responsible for all family separation, child custody, sup- port orders and alimony. He said the present system often requires four or five courts to handle one matrimonial dispute. Mr. Lang added that the well-to-do also have more options and can obtain a quicker settlement than the poor. He supported a recommendation from the Federal Law Reform Commission for unification of the family court system, but added that such a change would re- quire close co-operation between the federal and provincial governments. Mr. Lang said family law is "an area too long neglected by governments." Terrorists seek Dominican release SANTO DOMINGO (AP) Dominican terrorists holding a United States woman diplomat and others hostage in the Venezuelan Consulate here said today they will take "drastic measures" unless they get a doctor to treat a wounded person. They also demanded food, water, and removal of troops from around the building. The terrorists, who previously threatened to kill one hostage every two hours and blow up the building by noon unless they get million and freedom for all Dominican political prison- ers, did not say who the wounded person is or specify what "Drastic measures" they would take. "We have a person who is seriously wounded and we need a surgeon who can treat the person inside the con- spokesmen for the guerrillas told The Associated Press here by phone. "The hostages are well, calm and acting normally." The guerrilla spokesmen said that in addition to Bar- bara Hutchison, U.S. Informa- tion Service (USIS) chief here, they are holding nine other persons hostage, including the Venezuelan con- sul and the vice-consul. high gear 'Brown paper'seeks LONDON (Reuter) The Conservative parry, apparent- ly lagging behind in the race for power in the Oct. 10 general election, has suddenly moved its campaign into a higher gear. It promised Friday to reduce the mortgage rate for the house-buyers by 1.5 per cent. The pledge was described as a bribe by Labor Prime Minis- ter Harold Wilson, but it was enough to guarantee new- spaper headlines and televi- sion time Friday and today. It also coincided with a speech Friday night by Con- servative Leader Edward Heath, who. in the first four days of the campaign, had taken on the appearance of an already defeated man. Looking bright and con- fident, he said at a meeting in western England that Labor's much-vaunted social government's agreement with the trade un- ions for voluntary wage has failed. "What we need is a national contract for em- ployers and to broaden it to other interested Heath said. Wilson, meanwhile, was given a sharp reminder of the troubles in Northern Ireland at a meeting in North London. building preservation OTTAWA fCP) Heritage Canada has called for urgent enactment of legislation by federal and provincial govern- ments to save heritage struc- tures from demolition. In a "brown paper" presented at the organization's first annual meeting Saturday, Heritage Canada asked for joint fed- eral-provincial action the establishment of a Canadian register of heritage property. The brief leaves the defini- tion of heritage property to provincial and federal representatives on a com- mittee overseeing the register. Buildings and other heritage property in the register would be protected by provincial legislation making it illegal to demolish such a building or change its facade without au- thority, the 28-page brief states. The foundation also calls on the two levels of government to compensate owners of property listed in the register because of restrictions placed on its disposal. Heritage Canada has members, most of whom are affiliated through 160 local heritage groups across the countrv. When it was es- tablished in 1973, the founda- tion was granted a one-time endowment of million by the federal government. The brief estimates that the cost of evaluating and listing properties in the national register would be million over five years. Included in this list are the home of railway builder Sir William Van Home in Montreal, the old city hall in Kitchener, Ont.. and the Run- die Lodge in Calgary. Mackasey seeks fair deal for posties OTTAWA Post- master-General Bryce Mack- asey Friday asked post office administrators t9 treat their employees fairly and with dig- nity and said he wanted to end low morale in the department within two years. Speaking at the opening of the new federal postal museum, Mr. Mackasey said in a departure from a prepared text that people come first in the post office. "As long as 1 am here peo- ple will be more important than machinery and automation." he said. The new million automa- tion program in the post office has provoked widespread dis- content in the department and led to recent postal strikes The employees were repre- sented by union leaders who should be up on the platform at the museum opening, he said On the stage were former postmasters-general Andre Ouellet and Senator Jean-Pierre Cote and deputy minister John Mackay Representatives of the Canadian Union of Postal Workers and the Letter Carriers" Union were invited to the opening, a department spokesman said, but none attended Beth Johnson Says 1! calories were money and therefore budgeted, how would you spend them7 Suppose that instead ot dollars 'or food, you have a shea! of calorie slips. in vanous denominations to- talling 2400 a day tax free In this situation you would 90 into a store and buy the food you want tiuy not
