Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - February 14, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Wednesday, February 14, 1973 - THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD - 21 Befouled by oil, tar and plastics Atlantic Ocean polluted report shows By KICHARD D. LYONS New York Times Service WASHINGTON-Federal scientists have reported Monday that vast areas of the Atlantic Ocean from Cape Cod to the Caribbean, are befouled by floating oil, tar and plastics. Scientists aboard three ships of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration that surveyed part of the area last summer cialculs/ted that at least 665,000 square miles of water are covered by the chemicals, sometimes in heavy concentrations of fist-size debris. "We were very much surprised at the extent of the contamination," said Kenneth Sherman of Narragansett, R.I., who coordinated the survey. The National Marine Fisheries Service official said the sources of the debris had not been positively identified but that they appeared to be, at least in part, chemical factories and oil tankers. At some surface areas, the ships' crt'vvs reported, the petroleum pollution was so heavy that the oil clumps had been extruded "like spaghetti" through the mesh of the collection nets being towed by the vessels. Although the presence � of floating oil had been previously reported from other areas, Sher- man said a newly discovered site had been found near the Gulf Stream about 175 miles east of St. Augustine, Fla. The largest area of pollution was found off the eastern coast of the Bahamas chain, running north and south about 300 miles and about 50 miles wide. This location is the Antilles current which itself is part of the Sargasso Sea, a vast section of the central north Atlantic stretching half way between the old and new worlds. The oil and tar slicks in this area are believed by Dr. James N. Butler, a professor of chemistry at Harvard University, to have come from crude oil sludge, as opposed to refined petroleum products. Rutler said that he had analyzed 200 petroleum samples collected in the � survey last summer. Ulster split deepens BELFAST (Reuter) - A call for an independent Northern Ireland by right-wing Protestant leader William Craig has deepened major splits in Ulster's once - dominant Unionist party. Unionist leader Brian Faulkner said Monday night-after hearing that Craig had urged Protestants and Catholics to join together in creating an independent Northern Ireland - that he no longer regards his former colleague as a member of the party. But Craig's supporters may contest any move to oust their leader from the Unionist party, through which the Protestant majority governed Northern Ireland for 50 years. Craig, leader of the militant Vanguard movement, urged the creation of a dominion of Ulster. Faulkner, Ulster's last prime minister before the British government imposed direct rule a year ago, said any kind of independence for Northern Ireland is contrary to Unionist party policy that the North should remain an integral part of the United Kingdom. COMMON BONDS NOTED Craig said both Catholics and Protestants in the North have more in common with each other than they did with the republic to the south. And, he said, since it appears the British government does not intend, to restore a strong Northern Ireland parliament, many Protestants would prefer an independent dominion of Ul-I ster.
