Many wore rags or were half naked, with little to eat and all their personal or- tiaments gone to pay for food. Many lay on the ground look- ing vacantly at visitors and waiting for the march to begin. But the march never did begin. Government officials, who have denied reports (hat most of the northern regions along the Chinese border are suffering r.cule shortages, made it clear that the protest, would be discouraged.

They also claimed that in the district of Baitadi adjoining Bajhang, all nine members of a family commit- ted suicide because of hunger. In the western district of Ach- ham, 13 people died of eating poisonous weeds, they claimed According to the there may be many more such _ deaths which have yet to be confirmed.

But two problems 10 exploit the find at the lowest cost and how to transport it to market. A French admiral, R. Corn- uault, says in a recent book that the most economical way of transporting ttie oil to large Pa- cific customers in Canada, the United States and Japan is by sea. Admiral Cornuault says In Les Forceurs du Passage du Nord-Ouest that sea transport brings so many advantages that numerous attempts will be made by submarine tankers in the next few years to transport Arctic oil. His book traces the various attempts to pass through the Passage, from Mar- tin Frobisher to the voyage of the Manhattan. It includes the trip of the RCMP ship St. Koch, the first ship to go through the passage in both directions. The problem of transporting 011 from Alaska is a tricky ono.

Admiral Cornuault suggests that ships could be moored to an iceberg, and giant hoses could transfer oil from the shore to the tankers, The Americans tried a rein- forced hull on the Manhattan. The huil was constructed so that the ship's entire weight would help break ice. Canadians proposed a differ- ent formula, named the Alex- bow after its inventor, Scott Al- exander. His method was to shape the hull so that ice is lifted from both sides hy tho bow and thrown aside. Admiral Cornuault concluded that the Manhattan did not re- spond like thc super ice-breaker it was supposed to be, and did not achieve results superior to those obtained by ordinary ice- breakers.
