Canada sticking to tough stand on water laws OTTAWA There is no talk yet of gun-boat diplomacy but Canada is sticking to it's tough stand on fish protection and pollution control as prepa- rations continue for the inter- national sea law conference in next May. The old idea of freedom of the high seas is drowning under the threat of disastrous ocean pol- lution and permanent extinction of over-exploited fisheries. So Ottawa wants stronger powers for coastal states to pro- tect their plus inter- national machinery to govern activities on the high seas. Negotiators hope for agree- ment from the conference but they have already raised the prospect of a separate treaty among sympathetic coastal states aimed at preventing pol- lution and conserving fish in wide off-shore zones. Prepar story talks on the San- tiago conference end this month in Geneva External affairs and environment department offi- cials will then gather views of the provinces before taking the Canadian proposal to prelimi- nary talks in New York in De- cember. DISCUSS PROCEDURE The New York meeting will deal only with procedural is- not the substance. While details of the Canadian proposal are still being its gist has emerged in the months of complicated dis- cussions in Geneva. Ottawa wants each coastal like itself to have control over the adjoining seabed to the edge of the conti- nental however far that extends out to sea. In Canada's that means 400 miles in some spots off the Atlantic coast. Sovereignty over the wa- ters would be limited to the present 12 miles offshore. Ottawa wants coastal- state power to manage fisheries and control agreed well as the lion's share of the catch in those waters Other nations could fish in that but only under coastal-state regulations. Ottawa wants an au- thority set under the United manage the seabed beyond national ju- risdictions and even to exploit seabed resources. NEAR CERTAINTY Alan formerly legal adviser to the external affairs department and now ambassa- dor to told a Commons committee last May that estab- lishment of an international au- thority is a virtual it will be fairly tightly regulated so that if states or individuals or com- paniss wish to go out and ex- ploit these they have to do it subject to licensing controls analogous to those which we now administer on our continental But success for the other Ca- nedian goals is far from as- sured Coastal-state control over the entire continental shelf and the fish life above it has been op- posed by countries with smaller shelves and by those seeking continued rights for their long- distance fishing fleets abroad. Major sh countries resist moves might mean tighter controls over construction and operation of their vessels. A group of Latin American countries and an African group have offered a competing plan that would give coastal states powers up to 200 miles off shore. Environment Minister Jack Dsvis says that makes no sense because fish inhabit the whole honoring no arbitrary boundary basic says Mr that coastal states should have jurisdiction out to the edge of their conti- nental and indeed down the slope of their over all living resources of the sea as well as the mineral re- sources FBI burglaries 'nothing new' By JOHN M. CREWDSON New York Times Service WASHINGT Informed Justice department sources have disclosed that what one of them called and un- burglaries by agents of the Federal Bureau of Investi- gation had taken place in this country over a 40-year period that began under the adminis- tration of President Franklin D. Roosevelt and ended in 1966.

The source said that the practice was establish- ed investigative but that its use had never been known to any of the attorneys general who served during the time it was or to anyone else outside the FBI. The which was corroborated by others fa- miliar with the fol- lowed a statement by Pres- ident Nixon at a news confer- ence in San Clemente Wednes- day that such burglaries took place a very large during the administrations of presidents Kennedy and John- son. Nixon made the j which brought rapid denials from two former Democratic attorneys in response to a question about the con- stitutionality of the 1971 bur- glary of the office of a Los An- geles psychiatrist who had treated Daniel the former defense department of- ficial who says he provided the Pentagon paaprs to the press.
