The compromise measure, which passed both houses of Congress by a voice vote Fri- day, sets Jan. 1, 1975, as the target date for dramatically re- ducing the level of harmful emissions from new car ex- hausts. Auto Industry executives say they can't meet the deadline. A House of nate conference commitlpe in- cluded a compromise provision allowing a one-year extension of the deadline if the industry proves it's trying to find the technology to make pollution- free cars. Six nations cut off by new fishing lines OTTAWA (CP) New fish- eries closing lines to give Can- ada exclusive fishing rights in the Gulf of St. Lawrence, the Bay of Fundy, Queen Charlotte Sound, Dixon Entrance and He- cate Strait were proclaimed in the Commons Friday by Fish- eries Minister Jack Davis. U.S. and French fishermen will continue to enjoy treaty rights in the new fishing zones but the government intends to end traditional rights, particu- larly in the gulf, of the United Kingdom, Spain, Italy, Portu- gal, Norway and Denmark. The minister said proclama- tion of the closing lines, to take effect at the end of February, will give Canada authority to prevent foreign incursions on newly-developed herring grounds in the gulf. Mr. Davis made clear that the extended fishing ing an additional square miles of coastal not to be considered as part of Ca- nadian territory. Still, Canada will assume complete authority over marine conservation within the lines. Also to apply in the zones are regulations to prevent oil pollu- tion proposed in amendments to the Canada Shipping Act. EXPECTS U.S. GROWLS Mr. Davis said at a press con- ference he expected to hear growls from the U.S. about the new lines but he doubted if any Wlien Kiss phones robbers gasp VANCOUVER (CP) Memo parently thought Kiss was country would challenge them at the International Court of Justice. The proclamation fol- lows logically from interna- tional precedents established over the last 15 years, he said. The U.S. state department ex- pressed official "regret" at the Canadian action. Canada enacted the Terri- torial Sea and Fishing Zones Act in 1964 to establish a nine- mile fishing zone beyond the three-mile territorial limit. The act was amended this year to extend the limit to 12 miles and provide for designation of the closing lines. The 12-mile limit had already been claimed by some 50 maritime nations. Washington's possible objec- tion to the new closing lines is that exclusive fishing zones tend eventually to be proclaimed uni- laterally as territorial waters, Mr. Davis observed. Mr. Davis said the ending of foreign fishing rights will have to be a gradual process in rec- ognition of the traditional prac- tice of European fihermen. GAVE NOTICE An indication of Canada's in- tention, however, was given in 1964 and the minister suggested 1974 as a possible target date. In some cases, he added, might have to be extended. Over-all, foreign fishermen take about million of the annual million catch in the waters enclosed by the lines. Enclosing the Gulf of St. Lawrence will be a line from the north tip of Cape Breton 54 miles across the Cabot Strait to to holdup men: Don't bother George Kiss while he's on the phone.
