JO THE UiHBRIDGE HERALD Wednesday, April 4, i9. 3 Carbon dioxide research Oceans still capable of absorbing gas 1U WALTER SULLIVAN Vn Times Service YORK A nine-month from Uie Arctic to the Antarctic by the research ves- Kiiorr has led (o the dis- covery that carbon dioxide pro- duced by the sniokeslacks of the Northern Hemisphere is be- ing "inhaled" by North Atlan- tic waters and by Uie South Atlantic. It has been feared that cur- rent production of carbon diox- ide by industrial activity ex- ceeds the capacity of the oceans to absorb the gas. This lead to a build-up of car- bon dioxide in the atmosphere and to possible climate change. The new finding does not re- solve that question, but does in- dicate that the oceans are still capable of removing the gas from tJhe most polluted lati- tudes. For this reason Dr. Haro Takahashi of Queens College, N.Y., chief scientist on the fbal leg of the ship's journey, termed the finding "good news." However, he told a news conference on the ship here that the long-term implications would not be clear until after much further study. Tracing the path of carbon dioxide through the world oceans is one of the goals of the international project of which the voyage of the Knorr was a part. Her journey took her from the icy waters of the Greenland Sea to equally frigid waters near Antarctica. The ship is op- erated by the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution in Massachusetts. The project is known as the Geochemical Ocean Sections Study, or Geosecs. Ships from France, Japan and West Ger- many are also to participate, as well as the sister ship of the Knorr, the Melville of the Scripps Institution of Oceano- graphy in California, SURVEY PACIFIC The Melville will survey the Pacific, using the same sampling and measuring de- vices as those aboard the Knorr. They are said to be the most elaborate and highly com- puterized equipment of this sort ever taken to sea. Carbon dioxide, generated by combustion, is a focus of atten- tion because, in the atmo- sphere, it acts like the glass roof of a greenhouse, permit- ting sunlight to pass through and generate heat, but inhibit- ing the escape of that heat. Hence it has been feared that a significant increase in atmo- spheric carbon dioxide could upset the world's climatic bal- ance. Dr. Paul M. Fye, the director at Woods Hole, said no research ship had ever been equipped with such sophisticated devices for chemical analysis, many of them automatic and computer- controlled. An unexpected find was the manner in which the Walvis ridge in the south Atlantic bars the flow of cold, nutrient-rich water from Antarctica into the eastern Atlantic. This ridge links Africa to the mid-Atlan- tic. South of the Walvis ridge the cold water, rich in phosphates, nitrates and silicates, could be followed from station to sta- tion. North of the ridge, it van- ished.

Underground activities Jehovah's Witnesses jailed MOSCOW (AP) A court in Lituania has sentenced four Jehovah's Witnesses to five years in labor camps and five others to lesser terms. The Witnesses were accused of building an underground or- ganization, printing and dis- seminating anti-Soviet literature and urging disobedience of So- viet laws. Sovietskaya Litva, the news- paper of the Lithuanian Com- munist party, said the sect's lit- erature and theological direc- tives came from the headquar- ters of the Witnesses in Brooklyn, N.Y., headed by Nathan Homer Knorr. It called i him a "reactionary anti-Com- l munist." The paper said the Witnesses in the Soviet Union are headed by Wiljius Araijus. described as an elderly man. It reported a court in the Baltic port city of Klaipeda sentenced him and two associates to five years in "strict-regime" labor camps and another person got five years in a less-severe labor camp. Two more Witnesses got two- year sentences, another got years, and two others were put on probation for three years. The paper said Araijus organ- ized secret groups of Witnesses in Lithuania, Latvia and around Leningrad and Kaliningrad. Sovietskaya Litva said the Witnesses have a tightly organ- ized "multi-stage" leadership structure throughout the Soviet Union that is highly efficient in arranging secret meetings for Bible readings, smuggling pam- phlets into file country and re- producing and distributing them- The paper said a Witness in the town of Vaynod, Alexandra Gechaite. "set up a workshop' to reproduce the sect's maga- zine, The Wstchtower, and other Jehovist tracts. The group's leaders urge their followers "to shun civic activities, not to observe Soviet laws, and they incite absurd in- ventions about the 'satanic' character of Soviet the paper continued. It also said the Witnesses! were urged not to participate in Soviet elections because this would make them "accomplices in the criminal satanic affairs of Caesar." Araijus, when re- minded of the "social benefits" of Soviet power, told the Klaip- eda court: "I can give my vote only to Sovietskaya Litva reported. Miners favor strike action LONDON (Reuter) Brit- ain's 276.000 miners have voted against strike action, it was an- nounced today. Sixty-three per cent of the votes cast opposed strike ac- tion, official figures showed. A 55 par-cent majority was reouired for strike action. The result is expecUS to help ease industrial tensions after two months of strikes in protest against the government's anti- inflation policy.
