Winnipeg Free Press (Newspaper) - March 15, 1975, Winnipeg, Manitoba WINNIPEG FREE PRESS, SATURDAY, MARCH 15, 1975 Soviet Train Travellers Evolve Own Life Style By PETER OSNOS NOVOSIBIRSK (Special TPNS) By official estimate, Soviet trams carry about three billion passengers a year, a figure nearly as large as the population of the whole world. Private autos are rare here and those there are do not get used much for long distance travel because of the uncer- tainties of road conditions, the weather and service. There is an extensive network of airline routes, but Russians seem to regard flying with trepidation and, given the choice, they ride the rails in great numbers. With so many, people on the trains, it is only natural that a certain style of life for such trips has evolved a favored wardrobe, eating habits and other pastimes. And there is n o better chance to observe From Medallion Ud. 1O i Medallion O Par- Qt- Brand V 7 THE SKIMMED MILK POWDER THE FRESH MILK TASTE Medallion Brand is FQR A SAMPLE MAILED TO YOUR HOME, Krom Hish gmlily Milk PHONE 233-7220_________ KARDOMAH RESTAURANT 1041 MARION ST.

The dining car on the Trans- Siberian, as on all Russian trains, is basic, what is known here as a "stolovaya" or workers' cafe. Its principle at- tributes are hot soup and a li- quor license. Fruit is sold at exorbitant prices and at sta- tions along the way, local resi- dents cluster at the entry way to buy a kind of well-liked Moscow sausage, apparently in short supply in the coun- tryside. It is easy to make friends on a train. A man in his 30s we will call Boris was returning to Novosibirsk from Moscow, where he had been on a busi- ness trip. In the course of a long conversation, he attribut- ed the popularity of railroads to the relative leisure they offer. "For two days I can do any- thing I he said. "Idon't have to answer to my boss or my wife. It's a little vacation." In a stop at Omsk, he even had a short visit with his of the vast snow-covered west- ern Siberian Plain is awesome. For long stretches, it seems, in its way, a desert, barren to the horizon and passable only by train. For centuries, Siberia defied all but the hardiest settlers, tribesmen and exiles. The enormous wealth of natural re- sources hidden beneath that plain and in the great forests to the north and east were well beyond man's ability to exploit them. It was the train, eventually spanning nearly miles, that changed all that. brother. The chief conductor of the train is an amiable former soccer player who spends his free.time aboard fussing over an elaborate coin collection. In three years of. working the rails, he has become so fond of trains that he is planning on spending half an upcoming va- cation taking a trip to central Asia.

Neil J. Stewart explained that he. dislocations to the conomy caused by oil. ration- ing at the retail level is expect- d to be so severe that to "in- roduce a rationing program for ess than 6 months would be al- most more tragic'- than the oil hortage it would be designed o counteract.. In an interview, Mr. Stewart loted that rationing wouldn't be nvoked until an oil1 allocations irogram at the wholesale level ad been in effect for at least ix months, for two reasons: to the allocations program ime to have enough effect to 'erhaps eliminate the :need for he more drastic step towards and to provide gov- irnment and industry sufficient ime to gear up. for rationing. He also revealed that before rationing. of oil products such as ;asoline, heating oil and fuel ills would be invoked, the fed- eral Energy Supplies Allocation Board (ESAB) has the power to mpose allocations on natural gas and even coal supplies on a egional or national basis. The allocations of these fuels vould be 'designed to encourage or even force certain customers o switch to more available al ernated fuels that are not in short supply, thereby taking some of 'the pressure off the al ocated fuels. As a last resort, the ESAB also has the power to consult ivith the provinces on fuel- switching in the generation of electricity and on steps to be aken by provincial power utili- ies to encourage the reduction n electricity consumption as another way of conserving fuels :hat are in short supply. If all of these measures fail to control the oil shortage, then rationing would have to be im- posed. The ESAB has just completed a draft allocations program for oil products that is being circu- ated among the provinces for comment. A crude oil allocations pro- gram is now in the works. The Board has almost com- pleted as much as it plans to do in preparing for any rationing. It has designed a timetable for phasing into rationing, once al- locations come into effect. And it has even narrowed down the designs of rationing cards to a few, as well as gen- erally how the rationing would be handled nationally. But not much more effort will be devoted to rationing plan- ning until the real need for such allow use of coal in steel-mak- ing would be available in the time of an oil shortage. Also, would the increased amounts of alternate fuels such as domestic coal be available in the short time periods involved in an energy shortage? End gmg: a drastic step is obvious, Mr. Stewart said. Mr. Stewart said that the Ca- nadian industrial capability to switch to alternate fuels during an emergency is more apparent than real. "No one wants to put in fuel interchangeability equipment if it doesn't promise a return on investment, though this ar- gument may disappear if and when companies start suffering for lack of fuel interchan- Mr. Stewart said. But even where 'companies arc willing to pay for the flexi- bility of fuel-switching capabili- ties, there will still be other limitations such as the need for new loading and unloading ter- minals for coal, as an example, along transportation routes. And in the case of steel com- panies which now use natural gas and could switch to coal, Mr. Stewart wonders whether {'.ie extra chemicals needed to .OTTAWA (CP) tf sing the retentionist argument that the cabinet is flouting the .law by commuting death sentences abolitionist Robert Stanbury Thursday night pressed Solici- tor-General Warren Allmand for an end to capital punish- ment. One capital case is before the cabinet and five more are expected this year as a result of murders of police and prison guards, the only capital crimes in Canada. The death penalty hasn't been carried out. since December, 1962. Mr. Stanbury, a former cabi- net minister, said he is con cerned that the abolitionisl cabinet will flout the law and "routinely commute" capital cases. He was concerned that the law would be brought into dis- repute as it appeared the gov- ernment was "flouting the will of Parliament." Under the law the cabinet had to consider each capital case on its merits not allowing sentiment to over- ride facts. He asked Mr. All- mand for assurances this i: being done. Speaking icily, Mr. Stanbury suggested that the government abolish the death penalty al- together rather than evade its responsibility by "phoney abo- lition." The current extension of a trial limitation on capital pun ishment expires December 31 1977. Mr. Stanbury said the majority government should in troduce an abolition bill before then and not fall back again on a free vote. He said the present law may force the cabinet, if it acts upon the law, to "take- a step backwards." He could under stand the reluctance of cabine members to do this. But they must either respect the presen law or pass a new one abolish ing the death penally al together. Mr. Allmand replied that th law isn't being flouted. He added that he saw the curren situation coming and had triet to avoid it in 1973 with a amendment that would have ended the death penalty. The minister, an abolitionist said MPs will have to decid before 1977 what to do and th in th government will either troduce a bill changing current law or a resolution ex tending it. Mr. Allmand told Robert Me Cleave Halifax-Eas Hants) the public is alarme by the rising murder rate. Hi .department was seeking a bei ter system to protect the pub lie and deal with murderers. Marcel Prud'homme Montreal St. Denis) proposec total abolition with a minimum 25 years in jail for those wh kidnap, rape or hijack an then kill, as well as for "firs degree murder."
