There have been reports that some service station operators and entrepreneurs have stored hundreds of gallons of antifreeze and in- tend to put it on the market at high prices when a shortage occurs. Owen Elliot, vice-president of Dow. said that while supply will be tight this fall, there will be no critical shortage and predicted only a five-per- cent shortfall.

What's happened? Albertans. province wide, are asking that question. Arguements rage over back fences and across the floor of the Legislature. A shotgun scattering of reasons are brought to blame. Hen pheasant seasons! Foxes! Weather conditions! Farming practices! Disease! Pesticides! Habitat loses! Overhunting! Everyone you ask has a different opinion of the problem. But what is the real reason? Does anybody really know? What can be done about it? is being done about it9 These and many similar questions are about to be reviewed in a series of ar- ticles to appear weekly in Saturday editions of The Lethbridge Herald. Compiled by Dennis McDonald, director of the Alberta Fish and Wildlife division's pheasant habitat improvement program the articles will discuss all aspects of the pheasant situation. Topics will include a historical review of in Alberta: factors limiting their provincial distribution; past and current trends in pheasant numbers: pheasant life history; factors affecting breeding and nesting success; seasonal survival and mortali- ty due to predators; land use activities; climatic conditions and hunting; the role of phea- sant hatcheries; pheasant research in Alberta; pheasant management techniques; Canadians rating high in champion chess meet MONTREAL (CP) Con- sensus at the llth Canadian Open Chess Championship is that four Canadians should place in the top 10 as the con- test swings into its eighth round today.

Berry now has 6'.2 points while Harper has 5'-2 points. methods for improving the carrying capacity of land for pheasants and programs of assistance available for this purpose. The series is intended to dis- pell many of the myths concerning factors which influence pheasant pop- ulations. However, it recognizes that even wildlife managers cannot agree upon some aspects of pheasant management programs in Alberta and elsewhere in North America. Hen pheasant seasons, stocking hatchery reared birds, paid hunting, predator control ana otner topics are open to debate, professionally as well as otherwise. Hopefully, readers will join this debate by expressing their views to this newspaper and to the program director. Pheasant Habitat Develop- ment program office, 22 Ad- minist ration Building, Lethbridge. Several articles in the series will be devoted to addressing points of view raised in these letters.

UNITED NATIONS (CP) The Security Council, which faces a crisis almost daily these days as its tries to keep the ceasefire in Cyprus from falling apart, may find its job somewhat tougher this month. The council presidency ro- tates each month among the 15 member-countries on the council and it so happens that the job this month goes to the Soviet Union, which has its own ideas about how the Cyprus dilemma should be handled. As might be ex- pected, those ideas differ from what the West has in mind. The chair has been taken by Soviet Ambassador Jacob Malik a veteran of cold war diplomacy, who is regarded by his fellow-diplomats as a tough, uncompromising op- ponent. He has spent many years in the UN and has long experience in diplomatic in- fighting both in and outside of UN councils. It was Malik who led the So- viet delegation in their famous walk out of the UN in January, 1950, when the Security Council refused a Soviet demand to unseat the representative of nationalist China and recognize the Com- munist government in Peking. The walk-out came to be recognized as a diplomatic blunder because it enabled the council five months later, with the Soviet delegation ab- sent and free of the threat of a Soviet veto, to vote to send a UN force into war-torn Korea. The Soviets returned to the UN within weeks after the Korean vote, Malik already has given some indication of his stewardship while in the chair. Wednesday night, on the eve of taking over the presidency, he vetoed a coun- cil resolution that would have enabled the UN peace force to take on expanded duties in Cyprus. His veto came after he tried unsuccessfully to block a vote on the ground he had no instructions from home. The resolution was adopted next day. with the wording al- tered slightly to meet Soviet objections. This time, Malik abstained in the vote. As chairman, Malik has no real power over the council but the chairman is able to postpone or delay meetings until he feels he has a suf- ficient number of supporters either to approve or oppose a resolution in which his country has an interest. His rulings on points or order can influence council developments. At the same time, Malik will have to be careful not to offend or overrule too many delegates. When the chair- manship rotates again at the end of the month, Malik again will be just one of 15 members sitting around the council table, at the mercy of whoever holds the chair.
