Ltd said Tuesday. The company said it has tons of freight backed up at Tuktoyaktuk, N W.T., because of the ice and has asked for the assistance of a United States Coast Guard icebreaker. There is no Canadian icebreaker available An estimated Eskimos and a handful of civil servants and businessmen are dependant on the sea lift for such things as fuel oil, gasoline, food, construction materials, and personal essentials The communities Paulatuk, Holman Island Coppermine, Bathurst Inlet, Bay Chimo, Cambridge Bay, Gjoa Haven and Spence Bay fear that the freeze-up, six to eight weeks off, could make deliveries by sea impossible.

Drilling display in Alberta OTTAWA (CP) A new petroleum drilling technique developed in the Soviet Union will be demonstrated in Alberta later this year, a spokesman for the federal energy department said Tuesday Five Soviet experts are travelling to Canada under an agreement signed between the two governments in 1971 to ex- change industrial technology and promote trade. Ralph Toombs. the depart- ment's senior adviser on oil and gas, said there have been several exchange trips since the agreement was signed. The Soviets will arrive in late fall with their drilling equipment and probably will stay for three or four months, Mr Toombs said. So far, all drilling has been scheduled for Alberta The department official said that under the Soviet technique, gas is pumped into a hole under "extremely high pressure" to break rock formations and sink an oil or gas well.
