Canada is happy with sea parley CARACAS (CP) Canada is satisfied with the progress of the United Nations third Law of the Sea Conference and sees no reason under pre- sent circumstances to declare unilaterally a 200-mile economic zone, Allan J. MacEeachen, minister of ex- ternal affairs, said Wednesday MacEachen, who also is official head of the Canadian delegation at the conference, said Canada "firmly expects" actual drafting of a global treaty covering use and protection of the oceans will begin at the next Law of the Sea Conference, scheduled to be held in two sessions in 1975 at Geneva and Caracas. The current conference ends today. "I don't believe Canadian policy is fixed on circum- stances in which we would declare unilateral MacEachen said when asked if Canada would take over ownership of the continental shelves if the next conference fails to formulate a treaty acceptable to Ottawa. "It's also clear in my mind that the present circum- stances which prevail are not those which justify unilateral he told a news conference. Canada's aim is to achieve management control of the continental shelves with the right to set catch quotas for foreign fishing ships. It also wants the power to set anti- pollution measures and super- vise exploitation and explora- tion of the seabed within the proposed 200-mile economic zone or to the edge of the con- tinental shelves, whichever is farthest from the coast. FEELS ENCOURAGED "We are encouraged that we are making progress among other delegations in gaining acceptance of the limit to the edge of the continental mar- MacEachen said. While 200 miles would enclose most of Canada's contental shelves, the zone would have to extend about 400 miles east of New- foundland to take in the Flemish Cap, an important fishing bank and the shelf area farthest from the coast. Don Jamieson, regional eco- nomic expansion minister and Fisheries Minister Romeo Le- blanc, were also part of the Canadian delegation. Jamieson said mere accept- ance of the principle of an eco- nomic zone already had led to increased co-operation between Canada and other countries fishing on her con- tinental shelves J. Alan Beesley, Canada's chief negotiator at the confer- ence, said if the 148 countries involved in the conference continue the momentum built up at Caracas a treaty would be concluded next year. Under a schedule adopted by a plenary session Tuesday, the next Law of the Sea Conference will open in Geneva March 17 and adjourn May 3 or May 10. The conference is to conclude in Caracas in 1975 but no dates were set.

CONTACT OWNER AT (604) 736-3373 Monarchy crumbling in Ethiopia By KEVIN DOYLE The Canadian Press The legendary Lion of Judah, Emperor Haile Selassie of Ethiopia, appears to be on the brink of imprison- ment or exile as the country's monarchy crumbles beneath him. His Imperial Highness, carrying such grandiloquent and archaic titles as Elect of God, Conquering Lion of the Tribe of Judah, King of Zion and King of Kings, is the 225th monarch in a dynasty that traces its origins to the Queen of Sheba. He is also one of the world's oldest leaders at 82 and a liv- ing anachronism in the tide of socialism sweeping through black Africa. But in recent months, the absolute power which he wielded over Ethiopia for a half-century has been steadily and ruthlessly stripped away by a Socialist revolt led, ironically, by the army Even his magnificent palace in the heart of Addis Ababa has in the last several days been nationalized. What remains is an aged and in many ways, tragic figure standing alone in his small, private apartments, without friends, with much of his wealth gone and without ex- ternal allies. PLIGHT IGNORED Still, among the millions of peasants in that savage land of harsh plains, windswept plateaus and towering moun- tains, there is little sympathy for the plight of the old warrior. Ethiopia's lower classes have long been sickened by the poverty and starvation of the mass of the people, governed by a mystical monarchy and a kind of fairyland of princes, feudal land-owners, courtiers, aristrocrats and provincial overlords. But until the last couple of years, they lacked effective leadership to do anything about it. From their eerie mountain castles and tortresses. the all-powerful nobility looked on benignly, considering any suggestion ot reform a treasonable act. Meanwhile, Selassie, after returning to Ethiopia from ex- ile in 1941 when Allied troops had driven out Italian in- vaders, had steadily set about making Addis Ababa a kind of African showpiece, with towering modern hotels, halls and a national airline contrasting with the appalling poverty in most of the rest of the country. The city became the head- quarters for the Organization of African Unity (OAU) and the sprightly, five-foot, four- inch emperor became known as the father of Africa, even to Socialist leaders he met daily GLORY DESTROYED But two things happened to destroy the glory with which this phenomenal leader sur- rounded himself. First, there was a huge drought two years ago in which hundreds of thousands died. The news was callously kept from the rest of the world by the regime until it was almost too late for inter- national aid to be of much use Second, upset by these conditions and feeling the pinch of poverty themselves, young army officer acted to improve things with full pop- ular backing They arrested most senior officers loyal to Selassie and demanded whopping pay increases which a worried emperor quickly granted But that was only the begin- ning Since then, the young officers have steadily peeled away the emperor's powers.
