The timetables of most judges were filled, the minis- ter told a news conference, and the city's request that the justice be from outside the Calgary region complicated the task. The city asked several months ago for an inquiry af- ter t h f t s were discovered from the transit system and a police investigation indicated there could have been similar misuse in other departments. last summer, but not by tl route the company wanted. The sliip could not brca through the ice north of Banl Island and had to go throng Prince of Wales Strait, Caira dian territorial water. And there is evidence the Co nadian Arctic is cooling and til iee getting thicker. FHODDED KESEAnCH Officials say the Manhatta project might have failed in on way but that in another it was success. It acted as a prod t Canada to resume arctic del ence research, dropped year earlier mainly to conserv imds. In all eases, it will not be enough simply to pick up thi where it was dropped Hany of the results1 which hai >een put to paper were sent k he defence department incincr ator. Robert F.

In an interview, ho also posed the question of whether the ice shelf attached to northern Elles- Ward Hunt ice shelf ba considered Canadian territory. Where did ice extending from the land leave off and sea ice begin? Dr. Hattersley-Smith says Canadian arctic summers began worming up a bit after 1925. But in 1962 they started getting colder again. CORE THE KEY He says this may be only a cycle and not the onset of a new ice age. He suggests that a deep core of ice be taken from the ice cap near the Otto Glacier on Ellesmere. In this core could be read the last years of arc- tic weather. In May, Harold Serson, an- other arctic DKB expert, ac- companied by Michael Sprin- kle of Quebec City, a MeGill Jniyersity summer student, travelled 650 miles in 18 days by snowmobile along the north and vest coasts of Axel Heiberg Is- and, which lies immediately zsst of Ellesmere. He found Nansen Sound1 be- ween Ellesmere and Axel Hei- erg plugged with no ign of the sea ice moving. This is one indication it is get- ng colder in the Arctic, Mr. erson said in an interview. New icebreakers' may have to a designed for the Canadian Vrctic, he added. Mr. Serson also found two oating islands.
