Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 8, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta Saturday, February 8, 1975 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 35 Americans seeking Arctic modification Youth convicted in mailbag theft WASHINGTON (CP) Canada has been asked by the United States to modify its official policy toward protec- tion of the Arctic against pollution, in return for concessions by the U.S. on other aspects of maritime law that interest Canada, inform- ed sources said Friday. The American proposals were reported by knowledgeable informants to be under active consideration in Ottawa. The informants said there is likely to be further discussion of the issue during the next two weeks in New York. Representatives from more than 20 countries, including' Canada and the U.S.., are to gather informally Monday at the United Nations to see whether any progress can be made on drafting new inter- national agreements covering sea-going vessels and other is- sues before a worldwide law- of-the-sea conference next month in Geneva. Details of the American proposals are being kept a closely guarded secret, partly because the discussions with Canada are in a preliminary stage and partly because of what one U.S. official said was the "very sensitive nature" of the subject. EXPERTS SHUT OUT U.S. environmental specialists and maritime-law experts, normally kept abreast of U.S. policy on the law of the sea, reported that they have not been advised of details about the latest American initiative. But some environmentalists expressed concern that Canada may consent to modify her stand in return for American concessions which would satisfy most of Ot- tawa's needs in terms of Arc- tic protection. "My greatest fear would be that Canada may sell out the oceans in general, merely to protect the Canadian said one senior law-of-the-sea expert here who has supported the Cana- dian position on pollution in previous international meetings. Like others who agreed to discuss the question, he asked to remain nameless because of his advisory work with the U.S. state department. His view was supported by others outside the U.S: government who are involved in either environmental or legal aspects of sea-law questions. The U.S. proposals are un- .derstood to have been put forward at a meeting in Ot- tawa, Jan. 13. A participant in the discussions said the U.S. had offered some new "ideas" and had found the subsequent discussion "very useful, very but he declined logo into detail. Other well-placed officials, who asked not to be identified, confirmed that the proposals concerned the Arctic, at least in part. Canada adopted a law in 1970 giving the Canadian government jurisdiction over "pollution zones" in the Arc- tic, extending 100 miles from the Canadian coast. The U.S. condemned the Ca- nadian action as unjustified, under international law. The official policies of the two countries have not chang- ed since then. Canada's views about the rights of a coastal country to protect her neighboring waters won wide approval during the 1974 Caracas conference, including support from major U.S. conservation organizations. Against the demands of many countries that a 100- mile-wide "economic" zone of coastal waters and continen- tal shelf be recognized by international law, the U.S. found itself largely isolated in its insistence on the traditional 12-mile limitation to a coastal country's sovereignty. In a closely related problem, Canada has differed with the U.S. and other major maritime powers over rights of passage through coastal waters. The Canadian government insisted that coastal countries must have jurisdiction over such vessels as oil tankers which approach their coasts, including the right to control movements and set certain standards for vessel construc- tion and operation. The U.S. position is that there should be complete freedom of the high seas beyond the 12-mile zone, with standards for construction and operation defined by international bodies and not by individual coastal states. It is within these broad areas that informed observers here believe discussions between th.e U.S. and Canada may be going on now. CALLED BY NORWEGIAN The New York meetings, largely unpublicized, have been called at the initiative of Jens Evensen, a minister with'out portfolio in the Norwegian government who is responsible for sea-law matters. The original Canadian delegation to New York is ex- pected to come from Ottawa, but it is to be joined later by Alan Beesley, formerly Canada's chief negotiator on sea-law questions and currently Canadian am- bassador to Austria. The UN will provide facilities for the meeting, but it is not recognized as a for- mal United Nations gathering. The countries represented will be from the full spectrum of those interested in a reform of maritime and landlocked, those with shipp- ing fleets and those without, industrialized and less- developed countries. The delegates will attempt to find common ground in ad- vance of the formal Geneva" conference, which many observers regard as one of the last hopes for drafting agreed rules on protection and ex- ploitation of the seas. In Ottawa, a spokesman for the external affairs depart- ment said he knew of no such proposal from the United States government. And, in any case, the federal government's policy on Arctic pollution is enshrined in legislation passed by Parliament, legislation which Ottawa would be hesitant to modify, the spokesman said. A former employee of Time Air Ltd. pleaded guilty in provincial court Friday to stealing about in cash and in air coupons from Time Air mailbags.

American closes deal with Soviets MOSCOW (AP) Arrnand Hammer, chairman of Oc- cidental Petroleum Corp.'and a veteran trader with the Soviets announced he has closed a deal to build a ammonia pipeline in the Soviet Union. But he said American firms will miss much of the business because of the collapse of the U.S.-Soviet trade agreement. French partners in the proj- ect will provide financing and equipment, worth about million, and Americans will do the engineering and construction, worth about million, Hammer said. The 76-year-old executive also announced plans for a new Soviet-American art ex- change. At the end of five days of talks with Soviet officials on art and business projects, he told reporters he signed a protocol Friday with Soviet Culture Minister Pyotr Dernichev agreeing to ex- change exhibits of 40 mas- terpieces from each country. The exhibitions will tour museums, starting next May, for about six months, Hammer said. The paintings, to be loaned by Leningrad's Hermitage and other museums, will include works by Rembrandt, Veronesi, Rubens and Van Dyke, as well as Soviet painters, Hammer said. "Most of these paintings have never left the walls of the Hermitage since it was founded by Catherine the he said. In return, the U.S. National Gallery and other American museums will send the Soviet Union paintings by Vermeer, George Turner, Albert Bier- stadt and wild west artists Charles Russell and Frederick Remington, Hammer said. Grit suggests old folks accrue property taxes CLARESHOLM Provincial Liberal leader Nick Taylor Friday called on the Alberta government to enact measures enabling senior citizens the option to accrue property taxes. "This way, senior citizens would not have to live poor and die rich due to owner's Mr. Taylor told the Claresholm Rotary Club. The Liberal leader said such legislation would allow senior citizens to keep the cash which would normally go for property taxes. If the proper- ty were sold, back taxes would be paid from the sale or transfer fund, he said.

Research breakthrough promises protein hike OTTAWA (CP) A research breakthrough that holds promise of some day increasing the protein content of food crops has been record- ed by the National Research Council The breakthrough opens the door to better understanding of how some plants take nitrogen from the air and convert it to a form usable in the plant protein-building process. to pro- tein obtained from the air by bacteria living within the cells of legumes such as beans and peas. But the bacteria have never been known to carry out the Mishap injures youth A Lethbridge man is in satisfactory condition in Municipal hospital following a two-car accident Tuesday at 18th Street and 19th Avenue South. Wayne Dennis Ensign, 18, 1009 8th Ave. S., suffered a concussion as a result of the accident. Lethbridge city police say Mr. Ensign was travelling east on 18th Street and entered the intersection at 19th Avenue South when he was in collision with a car southbound on 19th Avenue, driven by Olaf Larson, Scenic Drive. About damage was 1 reported. Mr. Larson has been charged with failing to yield the right of way. There were at least 13 ac- cidents Friday at the intersec- tion of 13th Street and 15th Avenue North, Lethbridge city police say. process, called nitrogen-fix- ing, except within the plant cells. Now, however, Dr. J. J. Child has induced the bacteria, rhizobia, to do this work outside the cells. It is a task scientists haye been working on for about 80 years. Dr. Child, working at the NRC Prairie regional labora- tories in Saskatoon, grew rhi- zobia along with separated cells ot various plants. Even though separated from the plants, the bacteria carried out their nigrogen-fixing. An NRC official said the breakthrough opens a new field of research. When the plant component needed for nitrogen-fixing has been identified, scientists will be able to start searching for ways to make the nitrogen-fix- ing process more efficient. This could increase the pro- teip content in the legumes, which, with the help of rhizobia, take nitrogen from the air.
