Explain walrus deaths KOTZEBUE, Alaska (AP) City council wants to know what to do with 200 walrus carcasses. The council has asked the Alaska department of fish and game how to dispose of the de- composing carcasses littering shores of Katzebue Sound, adja- cent to the Chukchi Sea in northwest Alaska. The mammals, the largest weighing as much as three tons, began to wash up on beaches a few weeks ago all the way from Shismaref to the south and. Kiv- alina to the north. Some residents speculated the animals floated across the Ber- ing Strait after hunts in Siberia. Others suggested their deaths resulted from disease. But John Bums of Fairbanks, a marine biologist (or the de- partment of fish and game, dis- counted both theories. "They are some of the ani- mals which were lost during the spring hunt, probably at Little Diomede, King Island or St. Lawrence Island." Burns said that of the annual harvest of about walrus by Russian and American hunt- ers, fully half are lost due to the method of hunting. He said some hunters fire at random into the herds. Wounded ani- mals sometimes escape, but do not live long. A combination of late ice In the Bering Strait and westerly winds brought them in to shore in unusual numbers this year, Bums said.

Pricldis road dispute Shades of the great untamed West PRIDDIS (CP) Rancher Cederic Hopper is so incensed at visitors constantly tell- ing him to "go to hell" that he has barricaded the only road which crosses his property to his neighbor's farm house, southwest of Cal- gary. The rancher says he doesn't dislike Wilbert Lancaster, 79, whom he described as "all right, really. I don't mind the guy." "The thing is, I don't want any traffic at all driving on my land and past my house. "Would you like people trot- tin g over your property for 28 years and telling you to go to hell when you ask them their buEiness? "Well, I don't like it. I've closed the road to get some action."

Toll barrier inspired by white man sars Taylor in rift with Stonys EDMONTON (CP) The Stony Indians, who plan to erect toll barriers on the Trans- Canada Highay west of Cal- gary in a dispute with the prov- ince, arc the ones going back on their word, Highways Min- ister Gordon Taylor said Thurs- day. The Indians claim that a deal with the province to trade 340 acres of their reserve for acres of provincial land also in- cluded mineral rights beneath the ground. The province says the crown retained mineral rights on the acres and the Indians kept those under the 340 acres. The province arranged to ac- quire the land in 1960 so the highway through the reserve could be widened. Mr. Taylor said "when nego- tiations were completed the band council wrote the resolu- tions and each member of the council signed it." "I hope they realize they've broken their word. "I can't understand It; we've always said that when these they people sign something, live up to it." The minister said the Indians' plans are politically inspired by white men trying to embarrass the Social Credit government in the midst of an election cam- paign. The Indians announced Wednesday that attempts to ne- gotiate a settlement have fail- ed and since they still own two small portions of land under the highway they will charge a toll of 25 cents a vehicle. The tolls are to go in effect Aug, 20 unless their terms are met. At Morley, near where the highway goes through the re- serve a spokesman band said they were for (he advised Thursday by" RCMP that charges would be laid if the tolls were collected. The spokeman said Attor- ney-General Edgar Gerhart told the RCMP to enforce section of the Criminal Code re- ferring to obstruction of high- ways. But the bard will take the position, the spokesman said, that they cannot be legally pre- vented from exercising right of ownership to land that is theirs.

Mr. Lancaster said he agrees "absolutely" with Mr. Hopper and after being unable to drive from his property for six days, walked a halt mile Thursday to a public road. There, 12 friends picked him up and they went to a municipal council meeting to see what would be done. It is the same council that promised 11 months ago to build a road after Mr. Lancas- ter was locked out briefly for the first time. Councillor Fred Ball told the group that access planned along either of two road al- owances which reach the Lancaster property could not be developed because the land was loo marshy. Another road U> the Lancas- ter farm exists, but its gate was padlocked 15 years ago by Mr. Hopper after he can- celled a land-use agreement, WON'T SELL ROAD He has refused to sell the road, which takes up five acres, unless the municipal district buys the 80 acres which the road separates from the rest of his ranch, Councillor Karl Chrisloffen- sou said that couldn't be done because the cost would be loo high. After several questions and few answers, Mr. Lancaster got Councillor Ball to petition Alberta Attorney-General Edgar Gerhart to grant RCMP authority to escort the Lancasters through the locked gate. He agreed lo do so after the council, as a body, refused.
