6 ' DES MOINES REGISTER • Mon., Auf. U, 1975 £* Canadian warns Ford of oil cuts By CARROLL KILPATRICK & 1^1 wiihiniton »oit LIB BY DAM, MONT. President Ford heard the Canadian Minister of Energy, Mines and Resources affirm here Sun* day Canada's intention to phase out oil and gas shipments to the United States. The minister declared that Canada will follow a policy of "enlightened self' interest." The President promptly replied that Canada's decision is another reason why energy independence is "an absolute necessity for the well-being of our nation." Canada's decision means an ultimate loss of one million barrels of oil a day for the United States. It will make the United States more dependent on oil exporting nations if it does riot develop energy sources at home, the President said. Donald S. MacDonald, the Canadian minister, and the President spoke here and then threw a switch starting the first generator at Libby Dam, the backwaters of which stretch some 50 miles to the Canadian border and 40 more miles into Canada. Under leaden skies in this northwest corner of Montana, the two leaders jointly activated a switch to close a spillway and direct the water through turbines that produce electricity. MacDonald emphasized that Canada will not support a continental energy deal, urged by some American officials. Instead, he said that Canada will study each proposal on its mer-« its and determine If a co-oper- ^ j j- j.» ative approach would be benefi- Dam dedication cial.

(AP) - Having uffered through eight operations, amputee Tammy Hit* lard just beams when she looks down at her little plastic feet and giggles, "I'm going 'to paint toes on them." "It was all worth it. I love my feet,"'said the 9-year-old Pennsylvania girl -. who has pent most of her life in nospi- als because of bone malforma* ions at birth. No Other Way She was four days o|d when laced in her first of 13 casts. When she was 4 years old phy- icians decided corrective treatments were futile; there was no ilternative but to amputate both feet at the ankles, tammy was born without a upporting back bone in her ower leg and her feet started urling up. Doctors tried every, hing — pinning, breaking the rant bones, releasing the muscles — but nothing worked. "This is my fifth pair of plas* ic feet," Tammy said proudly, napping open the leather harness that (its above the knee and taking off the skin-colored eg brace with the flexnae oam-filled foot to show how it works. "When I get fully grown I won't have to keep getting new ones — only when they wear out," the youngster said. Last t Months President Gerald Ford dedicates the new Lib by Dam Sunday to start a long day withschcd- sense," the blunt-spoken Canadian, regarded by some as a future prime minister, said. There will only be "chaos," President Ford said, unless the United States "gets cracking" on developing its own energy sources and stops relying on overseas supplies. < The President said he agreed with MacDonald thai "each nation must ultimately cope with its own energy needs." However, Mr. Ford said that Canada, the United States and 14 other 'oil-consuming nations co-operate in the International Energy Agency, which demonstrates that nations "can work together to solve" the energy problem. "If 16 nations can do it," the President said to MacDonald, u'ed stops in Libby, Mont., Chicago, HI., Milwa ukec, Wis., and then back to Washington, D.C.

After the ceremonies, Mr. Ford went to Kalispell, Mont., where he had an airport meeting with 19 Republican leaders from the state. Mr. Ford flew here for the ceremonies from Vail, Colo., where he has been vacationing. Sunday night he flew to Chicago for a reception and dinner at the Chicago Yacht Club with Mayor Richard J. Daley. Today, the President will speak in Chicago and Milwaukee before flying to Washington this evening. "I am absolutely confident that Canada and the United States can do better." The United States "has delayed far too long," Mr. Ford emphasized, in developing a national energy policy. "Our vulnerability increases daily. We must act now to achieve the energy self-sufficiency vital to all." Canada announced earlier that it would start cutting back natural gas shipments to the United States in 1976 and would phase out completely by 1980 its shipments of oil across the border. MacDonald said the United •States does not seem to understand "that Canada does not constitute some vast storehouse of energy." Mr. Ford said the $470 mil lion dam, first authorized by Congress in 1950 and later made possible by the Columbia River treaty between the two countries, stands as "a symbol tikes loxjaHevel conferences MILWAUKEE, WIS. - President Ford likes the give and take with local leaders at his traveling White House conferences and hopes more people will seek his views at a session here today, aides report. The day-long White House Conference on Domestic and Economic Affairs will include three Cabinet members and other ranking administration officials. Mr. Ford will arrive at the end of the day for a question-and-answer session with representatives of the 19 local business, labor and social organizations sponsoring the session. The conference is the seventh the White House has set up to bring the administration's viewpoint to the nation's heartland. Mr. Ford has attended all of them, but had time for questions only at the session held last of how a commitment to the week in Peoria, 111, U.S. provides welfare aid to 9% otlndo^refugees WASHINGTON, D.C. (AP) The government announced Sunday that it is providing welfare cash payments and medical care to about 9 per cent of the first 52,000 resettled In- dochinese refugees. That rate, the Department of Health, Education and Welfare said, is lower than the 11 per cent or 25 million U.S. citizens receiving welfare, Medicaid or social services. Reports from 25 states and Washington, D.C., through July 16 show that 4,814 Vietnamese and Cambodians, including 3 in Iowa, were drawing welfare and another 489 were authorized to receive medical assistance, HEW said. Nearly half that number, or 2,262, were in California. The second largest contingent was reported in the state of Washington, which estimated that the 750 it could identify represented about two-thirds of the state's total. Since the July 16 state reports, HEW said an additional 17,000 refugees have moved out of U.S. reception centers for resettlement in communities. John A. Svahn, acting chief of HEW's Social and Rehabilitation Service, said many of the refugees on welfare were released without sponsorship because they had friends and relatives with whqm they could stay. "Now," he said, "some of hose arrangements appear to be in trouble." HEW pays the. full cost of welfare and Medicaid for refugees, unlike jrograms in Mobil opposes oil decontrol; cites shock to economy NEW YORK, N.Y. (AP) The chairman of Mobil Oil Corp. said Sunday he opposes immediate total decontrol of petroleum prices because of the potential shock such action might have on the nation's fragile economic recovery. Mobil thus became the first of the major oil companies to oppose President Ford's decision to let oil price controls expire next Sunday. The company urged instead a phased decontrol over several years. Letter to Congress Mobil Chairman Rawleigh Warner, jr., said in a letter to Congress that immediate decontrol "could cost American oil consumers about $8 billion annually assuming the present $2 import duty on foreign oil is lifted." Warner taid thai beyond the Initial impact there would be a ripple effect, the total cost of which nobody really knows. "It could stimulate higher prices, higher wages and perhaps some loss of jobs," he said. New Oil There are no price controls now on imported oil or on so* prw nil. rtnvvp^tic oruHf from wells that went into production since 1972. President Ford said on Aug. 14 that he would veto an extension of controls on so-called old oil, the nearly two-thirds of domestic production from wells in operation prior to (he imposition of controls in mid-1972. The price of old oil has been held at $5.25 a barrel. Lifting the lid would permit it to rise to the current world market price of about $12 a barrel. Mi 1 . Ford said he would act to soften the economic impact of decontrol by removing the present $2-a-barrel tariff on import oil. The administration said the net effect would be an increase of one or two cents a gallon in the price of gasoline. Severe Impact Seen But other analyses project more severe impact. One House study estimated consumer prices would rise one to two per cent and could put 800,000 additional people out of work. Phased decontrol would be "a sound compromise between conflicting interests in that cushions the impact of higher prices on the consumer over longer period of time. At the same time, it provides the oi producer with gradually in creasing earnings," Warnei said.

"Oh, my God," 88-year-old Madeline Pasqua said when informed of her grandson's arrest.

AJ1 foyr were scheduled to be arraigned today in federal Urges food processors' records be subpoenaed WASHINGTON, D.C. (AP) A Consumer Federation of America official urged on Sunday that the Council on Wage and Price Stabilization subpoena records of food processing firms to find out "why they are raising prices." Carol Foreman, executive director of the federations-said^ "I think they should go out and subpoena records. I think the public deserves to know they're raising prices." A. She said on the ABC-TV "Issues and Answers" program that a consumer-advocate's office should be established in government and that people should let public officeholders know they'll vote against them in 1976 if food inflation is not checked. Stabilized Policy Both she and Tony T. Dechant, national president of the Farmers Union, who appeared on the program with her, called for establishment of a stabilized agricultural policy nationally. "The farmer ends up on the short side all the time," said Dechant. He expressed frustration at the imposition of a temporary embargo on the sale of wheat to Russia. "The government told us to go out and produce wheat," he said, "and we responded. , . with the greatest wheat crop." He said American farmers had 300 million bushels of wheat on hand and produced 2.14 billion more bushels. He said they now fear that if they wind up with a surplus because of the embargo and boycott o; Soviet ships by the national maritime unions "our prices would go back into the base ment." Dechant said a national agri cultural policy should "set for -the_Jarm.er_a_JBaifI. rate „ would enable him to produce an abundant supply" and also pay farmers' storage costs on re serves. He said the nation should have a "meaningful international commodity agreement and Russia should be a part o it." Foreman said such a policy should take care of domestic consumers first, America's usu al trading partners second, "hungry nations" next and fi nally "those who want to flit in and out of the market." 10 Per Cent Rise She predicted food prices this year will rise 10 per cent, one per cent more than that forecast by Secretary of Agricul ture Earl Butz. She said the Council on Wage and Price Stabilization should look into such costs for food as packaging and advertising. She said General Foods spends $180 million a year in advertising. She blamed "The Departmen of Agriculture, the Ford Admin istration and before that the Nixon Administration for in troducing to agriculture a state of total chaos" with the marke "going up and down."
