Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 7, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 16 WE IETHBRIDGE HERALD Mondoy, Decombor T, 1970 New laws of the sea are sought by Canada UNITED NA1TONS (CP) Canada called Friday for laws of the sea covering such areas as territorial limits, exploita- tion, pollution and conservation to end a situation under which states must take unilateral ac- tion to protect their interess. It said Canada took unilateral action to declare a 12-mile terri- SALINAS, Calif. (AP) Farm labor leader Cesar Chavez, who used a boycott to unionize table grape growers, has been jailed by a judge who says Chavez will stay behind bars until he calls off a United States-wide lettuce boycott. Uiavcz, soft spoken Mexican- American leader of the United Farm Workers Organizing Com- mittee, was defiant as he was led to jail Friday. "Boycott Antle! Boycott Chavez called to about supporters at the Monterey County courthouse as bailiffs led to jail. Superior Court Judge Gordon Campbell told Chavez during a hearing he would "not stand for the continued dis- obedience of this court's or- ders." Campbell had issued an in- junction prohibiting the boycott against Bud Antle Inc., large- scale lettuce grower owned in part by Dow Chemical Co. The judge sentenced Chavez to two consecutive five-day jail terms for violating two anti-boy- cott orders and added that Chavez would stay in jail until Hie boycott is ended "in Califor- nia and elsewhere." Campbell also fined the UFWOC for violating the judge's preliminary order against the boycott. The boycott of all lettuce har- vested by non-UFWOC labor was launched after Campbell had issued a court order against picketing last Sept. 16. Chavez had called a strike Aug. 23 against Salinas Valley growers, who produce 70 per cent of head lettuce in the U.S. after most of them signed farm labor contracts with the Teams- ters union. About 75 growers in eluding Antle, still hold to their Teamster contracts. Chavez called his strike shortly after the table grape growers of Central Valley signed UFWOC contracts follow- ing five years of trying to com- bat his non-violent strike and nationwide boycott. Since then, he has signed con- tracts with five of Salinas Val- ley's biggest lettuce growers, covering more than 15 per cent of the country's lettuce crop and nearly half the celery and strawberries grown in the west- em United States. Grain stabilization plan sets aside million OTTAWA (CP) The govern- ment hopes to make payments to farmers under the grain sta- bilization plan in the current crop year, Otto Lang, minister responsible for the Canadian wheat board, told the Commons here. The budget Thursday night showed that ?100 million would be available for this purpose, Mr. Lang said in a Commons reply to John Burton Regina The plan, announced last month in the Commons, is de- Jud Webb dies at 102 SUDBUR.Y, Ont. eral services were held Satur- day for Judson (Jud) Webb, known as Uncle Jed, who died at his home Thursday at the age of 102. Born July 6, 1868 at Cree- more, Ont., he retired in 1937 after 20 years with the Inter- national Nickle Co. of Canada Ltd. He also worked as a photog- rapher and in a smelter at Trail, B.C., in 1911. Mr. Webb was 99 when he underwent major hip surgery which his doctor said at, the time reflected "Uncle Jed's great spirit and vitality." signed to ensure western grain farmers an income not lower than their average for the last five years. Gas hikes check sure says Basforcl VANCOUVER. (CP) Gaso- line price increases announced recently in western Canada will be reviewed by the federal orices and incomes commis- sion, Consumer Affairs Mini- ster Ron Bssford said here. Mr. Basford told reporters the commission, in the normal course of its. operation, would check the increases against its price guidelines and price trends in the country generally. Major fuel suppliers have an- nounced increases in the whole- sale price of their gasoline, stove and furnace oil, and dies- el-fuel products. Mr. Basford was in Van- couver for a speaking engage- ment. LARGEST TURTLES Of the 13 kinds of turtles in Canada, the marine species are the largest. torial coastal limit only after at tempts at international agree- ment failed. It implied criticism of coun tries which criticize Canad when they have taken unilatera action themselves, for instance dumping nerve gas into the se or exploding nuclear devises. J. A. Beesley, head ot th legal division of the departmen of external affairs, said tha "we cannot proceed on the basi of the premise that while a unilateral action is equal, som is more equal than others." Beesley's speech, in th seabed debate in the Genera Assembly's main political com mittee. also called for an inter national regime to conserve th depleting h i g h -s e a s fishery warning of international conflic if something is not done. NO ONE NAMED While criticism here this wee has not mentioned any country by name, it is apparent tha the U.S and had Canada' declaration of a 12-mile ten- torial limit and a 100-mile Arc tic pollution zone in mind. The basic criticism is tha coastal states should await ii ternational agreement oh sue tilings as territorial limits. Beesley agreed that the worl has reached a crucial stat where international agreemen is needed. But, meanwhile some unilateral action was no necessarily bad. He said unilateral action i some instances could preven the world from being "bound b straight jackets fashioned in the distant past to contain pressures which no longer can be ig nored." Beesley noted that the three- mile territorial limit followed unilateral action by states. H warned that doctrinaire insist ence on the multilateral ap proach can lead to a situatio where there is no internationa law because of lack of agree- ment. The world must soon reac agreement on many aspects o the law of the sea, he said, MUST ACT SOON "Effective and early interna tional action is demanded t prevent the threatened degrada tier, of the marine enyironmen and the threatened destruction of the living resources that con stitute the real wealth of th sea." He warned that technology Is reaching the point where the re- sources of the deep seabed soon will be accessible to man. Tlier must be international law de- vised to deal with this exploita tion before it occurs. Beesley dealt extensively witl Canada's call for an interna tional regime for the protection and exploitation of the high-seas outside the ju risdiction of coastal states. He appeared to be talking to the Soviet Union, Japan and some Europeans who fish off the coast of North America Western Canadian fishermen re- cently have expressed anger over the fishing of the Soviet fleets. 'Canada believes that both the coastal fishing states ant the distant-water fishing states of the world mutst realize that a rational system of fisheries con- servation, management and ex- ploitation is required in the common interests of all con- he said.
