Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 28, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta Jfl, THF ItTHBRIDCt Cold-weather grasses promise in north .Nl'JW YOKK fAH (Jrass thai will grow in icy weather lias offered one promise tiint the rich Alaskan north coast oilfields may finally come into production. Proof of (he promise i.s thai Standard Oil of Mew Jersey is planning to renew drilling in the field. Exploration wells have beon held up during the long to permit opening the field. The major roadblock to the pipeline needed to bring out the oil has been fears of conservationists that construction work would destroy the tundra, the thin coat of Arctic grass which insulates Inc permanently-frozen ground from the brief summer conferva tionisl argument, mid the ground will melt into a Uiin j mud. Also, the absence of the i tundra will leave nothing for the Arctic caribou to live on. Now Esso and Atlantic Richfield, the chief acreage holders in the area, have announced that experimental plantings oi new cold-weather grasses have been successful.

A band of men and three women engaged in a shootout with railway policemen in suburban Buenos Aires this week. One railway agent was killed and another critically wounded. The rail agents foiled Hie robbery attempt, however, t and the guerrillas fled under a hail of bullets. Witnesses said the women handled their automatic weap- i ons with cool precision. They were described as in their 20s. The attack occurred at the Francisco Beiro station when j a special train stopped to col- j ticket receipts. It had previously stopped at 17 sta- j tions along the commuter line j and was carrying pesos worth March 30, three gunmen, identified as members of a Trotsky-ite Communist band, look nearly from a I rain at Rosario: Sept. 25, a group of 10 guemJlas. includ- I ing women, seized S50.000 from another (rain.

The! elimination process i.s expected 1 to be completed by spring. j A ban on the use of the more potent herbicide known as Or-! ange, which was found to cause; birth defects in unborn was issued last April. Orange! was used primarily destroy1 crops and pasture land to deny the Communists food supplies. The two herbicides still being used, similar lo chemicals used i in the U.S. as weed killers, are to be employed under restricted conditions during the eliroina- i tion period, the White House i said. Officials here had no estimate of how much herbicide was used in the Vietnam war. planting some with fertilizer, .some without. The plantings showed the grass will live through the winter and grow again in (he spring in time to provide the needed insulation. Atlantic Richfield has been doing the exploratory drilling on jointly-owned acreage during the last few years. Now Esso has asked for permission to put down a new test well about 30 miles from the existing discov- eries. If will be the first solo Esso operation on i he north roast iji three years. This is interpreted as mean- ing two things: Esso surveys have shown a promising new formation for exploration and the company thinks the pipelin0, permission will soon be forth- coming. Meanwhile, however, other companies with leases in the area have reduced or halted their drilling. The Arctic winter is setting in in full forw, mak- ing drilling difficult or impossi- ble. In addition, the other compa- nies do no( seem to have Esso's confidence that the pipeline per- mit will be issued. The various legal stumbling blocks in its path include delay in granting the permit, land claims by the Eskimos which brought an injunction against granting a right-of-way, and a new U.S. federal order which forbids the oil companies to get the gravel they need to insulate the drill sites and keep them from sinking into the tundra. The pipeline is more than ever necessary now that Esso has announced it is dropping the possibility of bringing out the oil; in tankers. Heavy ice, the lack 1 of good harbors and Canadian objections to tanker passage, j through the Arctic were con- jointly an insurmountable obsta- cle. Esso said the sea route was economically feasible but the pipeline is more feasible.
