Perhaps this rela- measnred? Light sets the speed limit for the universe and so far as know nothing can exceed it. This is one reason why clock- ing it is a tricky task. Through the centuries, researchers have devised more refined methods to measure its velocity. Each one came a hair's breadth clos- er to the truth. In 1971 and 1372. a surprising new system used to measure the speed of light. These latest findings are very-very close to accur- ate. In the 1600s, Galileo tried to measure the speed of light from a flashing lantern on a hilltop. His apparatus was too clumsy and he concluded that light gets from here to there instantaneously. In the 1800s, more refined techniques proved that this is false. But the prob- lem was to find a method to clock its speed with some de- gree of accuracy Until recently, it seemed log- ical to clock a light beam tra- velling a known distance. Re- searchers used various systems of spinning mirrors and slots to separate when its speed was clocked over longer cistances. In most systems, distance was multiplied by letting the beam reflect back from a distant Until the late 1950s, the most accurate estimate was based on the speed of a light beam through "a tunnel ttree males long. The answer was pretty close, but not perfect, and the search j for a more accurate system j went on. Light and radio, as' tionship could provide a more precise method to measure the speed of light. The idea was simple, but making it work was not. The plan was to measure the exact frequencies and wave- lengths of a control light beam and use these factors to compute its velocity. The tan- talizing work was undertaken by the United States Bureau of Standards. Two teams worked on the system to cross-check the findings. The special light used was laser beams single strands of highly concentrated energy. The big problems involved the stabilizing of groups of lasers to emit narrow bands of the same frequency. This was solved by directing the laser beams through methane gas. Helium neon lasers were best for the job and wavelength checks were made with krypton lamps. The results were announced to the world on October 13, 1972. The newly estimated speed of tight is kilometers per second plus or minus 1.1 meters. In every- day terms, this amounts to 186, 282. 3959 statute miles per sec- ond. The result is said to be accurate to within a yard or SO- Goyer advocates tough stand in trade talks TORONTO CCP) A hard-! that questions of availability of j nosed approach to trade nego- j natural resources are at stake.

(Copyright Chronicle Publishing Co. 1973) tiations with the United States in which Canadian gas and oil would be taken into considera- tion was advocated Thursday by Supply and Services Minister Jean-Pierre Goyer. In a speech here delivered to the executive council of the Ca- nadian Manufacturers Assoc1- ation, Mr. Goyer said Canada cannot disregard protectionist measures in Washington and must develop a comprehensive approach to the whole question. "We cannot accept piecemeal bargaining." he said. ''Our negotiations with the U.S. encompass more than im- mediate trade problems. Keep- ing in mind our very special relationship as members of the same continent, we must realize x4ntacid products slammed "Our relationship with the U S is very different from that of Japan and the U.S. or that of Europe and the U.S. "We therefore cannot enter into trade negotiations without taking into account such ques- tions as oil and gas. We must not deal with trade relations in an ad hoc fashion." NEED BROAD STRATEGY He said that only if Canada develops such a broad strategy will it be able to grasp prob- lems as they are and achieve the best results for Canada.
