Mr. Davis is expected lo an- nounce in Newcastle, nexl fliursday a plan by which gov- ernment will buy out the the commercial e s- iels, gear ami all. "It isn't Iheir he said. But Ihc salmon is in danger and Ihe only alternative would be quotas that would harm the fishermen more by leaving them with a capital investment but poor prospects than the proposed purchase. CATCH DOWN The Canadian ealcli had de- clined from C.3 million pounds in 1967 to about four million last year. Meanwhile, the Danish catch lias also been running at about four million pounds or more. But the Danes are taking the salmon off Greenland, the ocean feeding ground discovered in Ihe early 1960s by the U.S. atomic submarine Nautilus. One effect has been a short- age of salmon in the famous Canadian rivers they spawn in Mlramichi, the Rcsli- gouclie and others. "The runs are down to a frac- tion in the Mr. Davis said. This has had n severe ef- fect on the lucrative sports fish-' ing business on the protected rivers. Mr. Davis said the Danes have responded reluctantly lo Canadian pleas to stop taking salmon off Greenland. The Danes concluded an agreement with the U.S. re- cently to stop fishing salmon by 1975. But Mr. Davis said this will be too late. WANTS DANES TO ACT He hoped the proposed action here would shame Ihe Danes into immediate action to protect the most threatened Eish in the North Atlantic. He would press for this next month in Washing- ton at the International Com mission for Northwest Atlantic Fisheries. L W MOVING LTD.

"YOUR UNITED VAN LINES AGENTS" The ocean haven of the Atlan- ic salmon wasn't known until he Nautilus; spotted them fcod- .ng on shrimp under ice off Greenland. Until then they bad icon fished only in or off North American and Northern Euro- nean rivers. The discovery has driven the catch biflii enough lo endanger tho species. The damage was compounded by Ihe fact that a reduced number return to river spawning ground.s. Mr. Davis said It would take al least 10 years, possibly longer, to rebuild the salmon run it Canadians and Dane! stop fishing. After that, com mercial fishing would be al lowed only to trim the run under tightly-controlled condi tions.

Attorney-General D a 11 o n Rales, who earlier Thursday an- nounced he would recommend lo the cabinet that the justice of the peace, Lorne Taylor, be dis- missed, promised legal aid if the 29-year-old mechanic re- quires it.
