It says "appropriate action must be taken in advance to al- leviate the ensuing disturb- ances" in the native popula- tion's way of life. But the report by federal and provincial experts on various environmental effects of tlie power project also hopes the Snowmobiles WEST YELLOWSTONE, Mont. (AP) -A group of snow- mobile drivers from Marquette, Mich., ended a trip to Yellowstone National park today when they crossed the park border from West Yellow- stone.

In urging integrated studies and planning before construc- tion starts, the study says the James Bay project provides "an opportunity to integrate ecolog- ical research with a major engi- neering program in order to de- velop data and experience that will be needed in future re- source developments in these latitudes." To this end the study notes a number of other ecological im- plications of the project and makes a series of recommenda- tions aimed at controlling envi- ronmental hazards. EFFECT ON WILDLIFE Noting that "many biological processes in Quebec's silk-Arc- tic operate at a considerably slower pace than they do in the more southerly latitudes of Can- it says there are bound to be effects on fish, fowl and other animals such as beaver, caribou and moose as well as the vegetation because of changes in river flows and the chemical contents of the water due to diversions for the power project. The project was announced by Quebec Premier Robert Bouras- sa's Liberal government in April, 1971, on the first anniver- sary of his 1970 election victory. Cost was estimated then at billion although Mr. Bourassa revised this estimate Wednes- day to between and bil- lion depending on interest rates for financing and inflation. The project is divided into two development proposals, the first harnessing the Nottaway, Broadback and Rupert rivers and the second the La Grande River basin, all of which flow to James Bay. Together the rivers drain about one-quarter of Quebec's total area.

Soldiers accused of butchery By HAROLD MORRISON LONDON (CP) Tlie British oldier stands accused by Cath- lics of butchery; the cry gainst him echoes through :atholic ghettoes. "We got one and we will get 2 says an Irish Repub- can Army spokesman. Sunday, Jan. 30: What really happened on that tragic after- noon? Who fired first in the break-up of the Londonderry emonstration, the march that battered British policy in Northern Ireland? Bloody Sunday: The conflict- ing, contradictory testimony de- ies an answer. For two years British troops were under great strain as they attempted to separate Catholics and Protestants. From simple separation, the Toops were turned into a Brit- ish force against the outlawed 1KA. Soldiers died in ambush; some walking the streets while off-duty; others baited by re- velry with "friends" who killed them. Bloody Sunday, which brought death to 13 Catholic civilians may have been an event that military the seginning of a new policy of tougher response. PARATROOPS SILENT Catholics have given their side. Military commanders and British defence leaders have re- plied. But the paratroops, the men ordered over the barriers remain silent. They await the verdict of a wartime gunner who rose to be Widgery, now chief justice of England. The British government main- tains that the army had re- ceived intelligence reports that the IRA would use the demon- stration to attack the troops. The troops were ready. Of all the verions of what fol- lowed, these points appear un- disputed. After challenging the barri- cades, the bulk of the demon- stration turned back. But a hard-core of the marchers re- mained, pitching bottles, stones, bricks, iron bars and even can- nisters of gas at the troops. The army responded with gas and rubber bullets. Water tanks were brought up to spray the ri- oters with dye. Whether tte dye was intended merely as a deter- rent or more significantly as a means of later identification is open to question. In any case, commanders or- dered the troops to round up the rioters. The troops leaped the barricades and the rioters fell back. MADE 70 ARRESTS It was clear the troops were sent in to make arrests. Maj.- Gen. Robert Ford, land forces commander, said: "We had wped to arrest between 300 and 300 but due to a delay of about 0 minutes, we only got about ro.' Now the controversy begins. The army maintains its troops came under fire from a block of subsidized apartments notorious as an IRA nest. Troops returned the fire. March leaders and IRA spokesman deny that any shots were fired at the soldiers. In fact none of them was hit. Two were injured from an acid bomb U.S. jobless rate declines WASHINGTON (AP) The United States unemployment rate edged down to 5.9 per cent from six last month, the govern- ment reported today. Although the actual number of jobless increased to it usually increases much more in January and the labor department figure it as a decline of on a seasonal- ly-adjusted basis. The total U.S. employment rose to on a seasonal basis, although the un- adjusted figures showed a drop of more than one million. apparently thrown from the flats. March leaders claim also that If the troops had fired at snipers n the flats, the bodies would lave shown signs of a heavy fall. There was no such evi- dence. A doctor sent in by Wil- liam Cardinal Conway, Primate of All Ireland, said some of the dead had been shot in the back. Seven priests who say they were on the scene also maintain that those killed had been shot in the streets; some in the proc- ess of running, others while lying M the ground. Among the 16 Catholics wounded, one said he was hiding near the flats and was shot as he emerged to help a woman. ENGAGED GUNMEN In the House of Commons, Lord Balueil, junior defence minister, insisted that the troops engaged only identifiable gunmen and nail-bombers. "They fired in self-defence or in defence of he said. "I reject entirely that they fired indiscriminately and into a peaceful and innocent crowd. I reject utterly the slurs made on the parachute regiment." But Balniel's statements, and those made by other govern- ment ministers, seemed to be drowned out. Lost, too, was the recollection that a paratrooper had given his life shielding a Catholic mother from a bomb. Amid the explanations, come the theories of what happened. The demonstration was ille- gal. The troops were ordered to make arrests. They had under intense provocation for many months. Was this the oc- casion when they saw flit "enemy" clearer than ever be- fore? But did they really have to shoot? What if they had arrested some and allowed the rest of the rioters to fall back? These questions remain unan- swered. QUALITY DENTURE CLINIC EDDY DIETRICH Certified Dental Mechanic Capitol Furniture Bldfl.
