Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 11, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Canada, Britain criticize treaty GENEVA (AP) Canada Britain criticized Tuesday the joint U.S.-Sovict draft treaty to outlaw germ warfare on grounds it leaves a loophole through which countries still could make retaliatory use of bacteriological weapons. The draft, put before the Ge- neva disarmament conference, bans the manufacture and stockpiling of these weapons. But the main articles do not bar their use.

Whelan of Jersey City was sentenced today to 15 years in federal prison for while in office. Whelan and seven other for- mer Hudson County, offi- cials were convicted July 5, after a seven-week trial that in- cluded testimony about shake- downs, secret bank accounts, death threats, clandestine cash exchanges and feuds over divi- sion of the spoils. They resigned their offices after the convictions. banned under (he 3925 Geneva protocol. The United States has not ra- tified the protocol, which also bam chemical weapons, and the Russians have often accused Washington of avoiding the pro- tocol so it can use chemical agents in Vietnam. British delegate Henry Hain- worth said the Geneva protocol makes allowance for retaliatory use of both bacteriological and chemical weapons. SEES A FLAW He argued that this loophole is left open because use is not explicitly barred by the super- power's join' draft treaty. He said this also hampers verification procedure as tht use of bacteriological weaporj would have to be proven, per- haps by on-site inspection in the afflicted country, before another stale could be accused r' manu- facturing and stockpiling the germs. Ilainworth also proposed that the draft should include a ban on research in this weapons field. George Ignalieff of Canada expressed conccrr over the ab- sence of a ban on use and also said the draft duplicates the loophole in the Geneva protocol permitting retaliation. He further supported the Brit- ish view that the absence of the word use would also make ceri- ficalion less effective.
