Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 14, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta Haddock fishing changes praised HALIFAX (CP) Restric- tions placed on haddock fishing in the northwestern Atlantic, as one method to revive the rapid- ly-dwindling species, met with excellent response from the haddock-fishing nations. However, some quarters, par- ticularly in the U.S., fecMhe move may have been too little loo late. Fifteen member nations of the International Commission for Northwest Atlantic Fisheries (ICMAF) Canada, agreed to a two-month ban on fishing in three major haddock areas off the East Coast. The March and April ban in the spawning areas will be en- forced in 1971 and 1972 as will haddock quotas for the 10 re- maining months. These quotas limit the total catch from the George's Bank area to metric tons while Brown's Bank, another prime haddock ground for Canadian vessels, lias a limit of tons. Canadian fisheries officials repoit only "a couple of inci- dents" during the spring ban and say two Canadian vessels were prosecuted as a result.

Only equipment allowed to operate in the restricted zones is scallop dragging gear. "If we have as much success this coming year in enforcing the regulations as we had last year we'll be well off, says Reg Collie, assistant chief fish- pries conservation and protec- tion officer in the Maritime Tonnages quotas in 1970 were pretty well reached by October. In the case of the more than 100 Canadian trawlers, draggers and other types of fishing ves- sels, Mr. Collie says it simply means that each vessel intend- ing to fish for haddock must apply for a no-cost permit. The permit must be validated for each trip, thus giving fish- cries officers an exact tabula- tion of per-trip catches. SPAWNING STOCK DOWN Overfishing and "pressure" on haddock, and the fact that the fish concentrate in more acutely definable areas of the Atlantic than do such species of cod, have seriously depleted the spawning stock hi the last seven years. Canada, Russia and the U.S are the major haddock har vesters in the northwest Allan tic.

Finance Minister Edgar Ben son is counting on a steadily de dining rate of unemploymen over the next several months but official sources hint th there might well be little im provement in the annual figun projected for 1971. The government and econo- mists generally attach great im portance to the seasonally-ad justed rate of unemploymen each month. This is arrived al by mathematical and statistica processes designed to show the effect of uemployment if al the usual seasonal variations are taken out. But they barely disguise the :act, for instance, that workers out of a total labor force of were unem- jloyed at mid-November. That was an increase of people without jobs from mid-October, vhen one in every 20 workers was unemployed. The people out of work asl month compared with in November last year, when the total labor force num- bered only YOUTH RATE SOARS The sharpest increase in the memployed this fall was among 'oung people, either just out of chool or university and many >f them probably newly-married .nd perhaps starting families.

This November, the figure rose to 102 out of every There were actually jobless in this age group a year ago and in November tin's year. Unemployment f i g u r e s for each year go into the history books as the average of 12 months' seasonally-adjusted fig- ures. Because of the cyclical na- ture of employment and unem- p 1 o y m e n t caused by the weather, holidays and other fac- tors, the 12 monthly figures av- erage out to the actual rate of unemployment for the year. For the first 11 months of 1970, the average was 6.02 per cent. A sharp drop in unemploy- ment this unlikely event, in view of past trends be- tween November and December he needed to bring the years average cent. under six per The last lime unemployment reached near six per cent on an annual basis was 1962, when it was 5.9. But it was six per cent in 1959, and seven per cent in both 1958 and 1960. It was 7.1 per cent in 1961. This year started with unem- ployment at 4.5 per cent of the labor force in January, climbed to 6.7 per cent in July and Au- gust and peaked at 6.9 per cent in September. II has declined since then. But 1971 will start, it apparent, with an unusually high figure of six per cent or more. While officials say they are confident the rate will dec- line as the country responds to the government's job creating expenditure program, it will be hard to get the annual average down significantly. School, labor unrest mounts LA JOLLA, Calif. (AP) Two scientists say Iliey have cle veloped a method to isolate i substance from human cells that, injected into a transplanl patient, may "Irick" the body into accepting a donated organ. Dr. Ralph A. Keisfcld and Dr. Michael Pellegrino of Scripps Clinic and Research Foundation said here their work c o u 1 c solve the major problem of i b y the body of a foreign organ. "We have isolated and puri- fied transplantation antigens from human cells in test tubes which could be injected into iccipicnt so that his body ac- cepts someone else's Dr. Reisfeld said in an inter- view. Antigen, he explained, is substance that when introduced into the body stimulates the pro- duction of an antibody. The problem of rejection has been so formidable, he said, that efforts to transplant organs such as the heart have almost slopped after most failed. RECOGNIZES TISSUE "The key he added, "is that the body of the recipi- ent recognizes most tissue transplants as foreign." "Then, the same antibody sys- tem that protects people against infections goes to work and de- stroys the transplant." Under the new process, Reis- feld said, "white blood cells would be drawn from a prospec- tive organ donor by growing them in tissue culture in the laboratory." "The antigens in the donor cells would then be extracted and injected into the recipient." This would desensitize the pa- tient, he said, and "trick" his body into accepting the donated organ. The scientists said they ROME (AP) Unrest on It- aly's school and labor fronts posed mounting problems today :or the centre-left government of Premier Emilio Colombo. In the last two days police orcibly ended sit-ins in many schools after some 500 high schools had been hit by strikes. But hundreds of schools re- mained idle. Today, thousands of pupils narched on the education min- stry in Rome. Reasons for the student boy- cotts ranged from demands for more teachers, classroom space and laboratory equipment to ar-left denunciations of the school system as a tool of a "re- ircssive" and "capitalistic" so- j company on Dec. 22. ciety. I Italian journalists went on strike for 24 hours and shu down most of the country': newspapers and the state-run news agency, Ansa. They planned to strike again Tuesday to demand a contract renewal. Italians got a brief respite from a series of staggered gen- eral strikes. But these were to resume Monday and affect var- ious regions through Wednes- day. Colombo's government sought to hold down agitation on both school and labor scens but met little immediate success. On the horizon were more strikes called by railway work- ers unions for Tuesday, by labor ministry employees for Tuesday through Friday and by employ- ees of the national electricity Todays Showtimes PARAMOUNT Short Subjects "Suppose They Gave a War and Nobody Came" Last Complete Show PARAMOUNT CINEMA Short Subjects "Rider in the Rain" Last Complete Show COLLEGE CINEMA "Taste Blood of Dracula" "Trog" Last Complete Show ARMADA IS COMING DEC. 23rd Cancel service OTTAWA (CP) The author ty of B.C.

The University of Toronto eco- nomics professor said English Canadians are locked into a pecking order which leads to "double domination" of Quebec. "We are deferential to the United States and dominant in he told the annual meeting of the Toilet Goods Manufacturers Association.
