Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 24, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD WMnuaiy, April 24, Petroleum resources plentiful OTTAWA (CP) Petroleum resources in the northwest Atlantic and the Arctic seas may be great enough to be "equated with Kuwait or the Far the Commons environment com- mittee was told Tuesday. Art Collin, director of the department's marine sciences branch, said in reply to Bill Rompkey Falls- White Bay Labrador) that his department is "very in- adequately prepared" to man- age the area at present. Mr. Rompkey had asked if the environment department has the ability to manage ex- panded offshore limits, which the government will seek at the Law of the Sea Conference in Venezuela in June. The northwest Atlantic is one of the most complicated areas to map and the North Sea is the most inhospitable in the world, Mr. Collin said, but the resources are the most impressive and the most exploitable in the world.

He was 74 and had been in hospital since March 23. The nature of Jonas's illness, described officially only as grave, was never disclosed. A medical bulletin by the presidential office late Tuesday had said Jonas's condition was constantly deteriorating. It was widely believed in Vienna that Jonas, a life-long Socialist and head of state for nine years succumbed after a long battle with cancer. He was first reported ill last August. Chancellor Bruno Kreisky said Jonas knew of his "serious illness" since the summer, and that "he wished expressly to fulfil his tasks until the last possible moment." Kreisky termed Jonas "a great Austrian, who set an ex- ample of fulfilment of duties and firmness of conviction." Under a special law enacted April 8. the presidential func- tions were transferred to the three presidents of parliament, with Jonas continuing as titular head of state. A long-time mayor of the city of Vienna. Jonas was elected president in 1965 and re-elected in 1971. In the 1971 election he de- feated Kurt Waldheim, who later became secretary- general of the United Nations. He was born Oct. 4. 1899, in Vienna, and worked as a type- setter, proofreader and clerk. Eventually he entered govern- ment and political work, serving on a Vienna neighbor- hood council, as city counsellor for food supplies and agriculture, as city, housing chief and finally, as mayor from 1951-65. The Austrian president has no political performing mainly ceremonial duties. All- presidents since the Second World War have been members of the Socialist" party. National elections will be held to choose a new- president. Sources said the. ruling Socialist party is likely to nominate Foreign Minister Rudolf Kirchschlaeger, who" is not a party member. Dr. Kirchschlaeger, 59, is a- staunch Roman Catholic and" is expected to have broad: appeal in this predominantly Catholic country.
