Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 13, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta Tliuniloy, Auguit 13, 1770 THE LETHBRIDGt HCRALD 13 JYo Easing Of Apartheid Russo-German Treaty Dates Back To Bismarck Era CAPli TOWN (AP) Fi- nance Minister Nucokias Died- erichs indicated Wednesday that their.; will he no major relaxa- tion of apartheid to case South Africa's manpower shortage. In his annual budget address to Parliament, Diederichs con- ceded that there was a serious shortage of skilled and semi- skilled workers. Some South Africans suggest (his shortage would disappear if the massive pool of available blacks were allowed to do more of the jobs now reserved for But Diederichs said the gov- ernment is tackling the shortage of skilled white labor by encour- aging immigration. Simultane- ously, industry was being urged to relocate near Bantu tribal re- serves. Diederichs described South Africa's economy as "strong and virile solidly based and developing rapidly to meet the challenge of the new decade." Inflation continues to be the country's biggest economic problem, he said. liy C'V TOX Canadian Press Staff Writer The new friendship treaty be- tween West Germany and the Soviet Union reactivates a pat- tern of European diplomacy dating back to the 19th-century era of Otto von Bismarck as chancellor of the then-united Reich. Bismarck insisted on trying to maintain Russo-German ties, steadily undermined in the pe- his death. They were obliterated with the coming of the First World War, were renewed in 1922 under a secret German pact with what by that time was Communist Russia and enjoyed another brief spell of life under the Molotov-Ribbentrop agree- ment of 1S39. German-Russian friendship has always inspired fears in the past that Germany was drifting ominously away from the West. This time, West Germanys' formal acquiescence in the present pattern of European frontiers is combined with a renunciation of the use of force against Soviet influence in East- ern Europe and the possibility of closer economic Lies between the two countries in future. But the Russians themselves say they see no chance of de- taching the federal republic from the West and Chancellor Willy Brandt has personally this interpretation of Bonn's intentions. Implementation of the latest treaty, which has yet to be rati- fied by the Bonn parliament, is considered by the West Ger- mans to depend on a solution to the chronic problem of West Berlin, long plagued by Com- Inuuust pressures on its links I'with the federal republic. Discussions between the So- viet Union and the major West- ern powers about the city's fu- ture now are likely to enter a fresh phase; Bonn has been re- assured by Moscow that agree- ment on it can be reached. Moreover, Brandt has tried to promote a summit meeting of representatives from West Ger- many, the United States, France and Britain. The only Western chief to dampen hopes for such a con- ference has been President Georges Pompidou of France, currently preparing for a long- scheduled visit to Moscow. But Brandt's idea for a West- ern summit may have wide- spread appeal in view of U.S., British and French nervousness about the effects of the Moscow treaty on the slake won in Ger- man affairs by the three West- ern allies as a result of the Sec- ond World War. Meanwhile Brandt on talking with the Russians in what is reported to be blunt fashion. He is obviously proud of the success of the arduous negotiations his government has been conducting with the Vovi- ets. On the home front, however, he still faces determined at- tacks against his now-thriving "ostpolitik" from enemies on the political right and even- some1 observers within his own circle of admin- istrative aides. Thus he remains a man trying to make his policy of peace with the East prevail against powerful antagonists who ale determined to see his incumbency as the federal re- public's first Social Democratic chancellor terminated as quickly as possible.

(CP) It will be at least two or thr'ee years before the last traces of bunker oil have been removed from the rocky shores of Cheda bucto Bay in eastern Noya Sco- tia, where tests have shown the only major damage to be aes- thetic. A federal task force has re- moved most of the oil, spilled into the bay when the Liberian tanker Arrow grounded and later sank three miles off here in February. However, the job of restoring the more rugged sections of coastline has been left to nature. The tanker was carrying a cargo of gallons of oil. About gallons was recovered from the wreck, but most of the remain- der escaped. The task force removed pract- ically all slicks floating in the bay and from the shores of gravel beaches frequented by people. But Dr. P. D. Mc- Taggart-Cowan, the man ap- pointed by Transport Don Jamieson to lead the clean-up, said oil on tlr "boul- der beaches" had to be left. "We had two choices: Leave it or use he said. "Right from the start we put a ban on the use of chemicals be- cause they are toxic to fish and this is a fishing area." Dr. McTaggart-Cowan. execu- tive-director1 'of the Science Council of Canada, said the oil on much of the boulder beaches will be removed during the win- ter, when high seas from North Atlantic storms lash in across the rocks. In the., sheltered areas of the bay, the' rough water won't reach the oil and it will take probably two or three years for it to weather away, but the ex- perts aren't sure. A chemical dispersant was used for a couple of days imme- diately following the grounding when Imperial Oil Ltd., owners of the tankers's cargo, were in j charge of the operation. Its use j stopped when a marine biologist' pointed out that the chemical was more toxic than the oil. The only damage to marine life has been between the low and high water marks, where life was snuffed out under a coating of oil. Dr. McTaggart- Cowan said the plants would renew themselves. Chief victim of the oil was the lowly clam, which lost 25 pel- cent of its population before the Mil was over. Officials said this was not significant since the clam beds were overpoptiiated. "They were killed by suffocia- :ion, not by said Pr. McTaggart-Cowan. "A clam has to breathe at low tide. They'd come up for a breath of air and get a snoot full of oil." The lobster fishery has been normal so far this year and tile herring fishery has been better Jian normal, dispelling the fe.'rs of one fishermen who said 'we'll never get lobsters from that this year." as he gestured to the huge oil slicks, thickened to the viscosity of molasses by the cold water. But the large oil slicks arc gone from all but a small por- tion of the bay, thanks to the "slick-licker." one of several new machines brought in to aid cleaning the bay. The machine scoops up oil on a cloth conve- yor belt, passing through wrin- gers which squeeze the oil into containers. Dr. McTaggart-Cowan said the last of the slicks will be re- moved from inhabitant's basin by the end of the month. Beach cleaning with peat moss will also continue, and a "flying squad" will be left here until September, in case some of the oil on the boulder beaches should flow back into the water or onto clean beaches during warm summer days. And before workers leave the area, they hope to remove the last of the oil from the the cargo tanks of the Arrow, lying in 100 feet of water near the bas.e of triple-peaked Cer- berus Rock, about gallons of oil, hardened to the tank sides by the freezing water, could not be removed during the initial pumping. Pumping will resume Sept. 1, when water temperatures in the bay reach their yearly maxi- mum, the task force director said. In order to pump, steam has to be forced into the tank to make the oil more fluid. This was one of the greatest prob- B.C.

The fisheries brief said the crackdown will come through stricter surveillance of indus- trial plants and provisions in a revised Fisheries Act which will give wide powers to federal fisheries minister. The Fish and Wildlife Branch! of the B.C. Department of Re- creation and Conservation also presented a brief Tuesday which recommended that mills adversely affecting the environ- ment should be closed. Branch Director E. H. Ver- non, who presented the brief, said under questioning that hearings should be held before construction starts on any pulp or other forest products plant. The brief said there are wa- ters in B.C. which support sport fish but which arc not used by anglers because of "unpleasant smell, foam and color of pulp mill wastes from relatively new mills." Mr. Vernon later said the mills were situated at Skook- umchtik on the East Kootenay River and at Castlegar on the Columbia River.
