Partial seal-killing ban lauded MONTREAL (CP) Alex MacLaurin, president of the Ca- nadian Federation of Humane Societies, said here he is happy with the Canadian government's partial ban on the killing of baby seals in the Gulf of St. Lawrence. The partial ban was an- nounced Tuesday by Fisheries Minister Jack Davis. It forbids teal hunting from aircraft and shins. Land-based hunters still will be able to take seals. "The minister made his deci- sion following the report of a committee set up by our Cana- dian Federation and at the min- ister's Mr. MacLaurin 1 six-year moratorium on hunt- said. "It has taken a long time I Mr. Davis denied that the de- but it is a striking victory for us cision to stop the St. Lawrence and should finally eliminate the bunt except for landsmen re- bad image given Canada abroad by the slaughter in the Gulf." suited from a worldwide cam- paign mounted against it which Mr. Davis said the govern-1 was based largely on allega- merit's decision "fits in 100 per! tlons of cruelty to baby seals, cent" with recommendations ofj The decision was based en- a special advisory committee on the Atlantic seal hunt, head- ed by Dr. Keith Ronald of the University of Guelph. Other recommendations in the report include a "phaseout" of the Canadian and Norwegian seal hunt off Newfoundland by 1974, followed by a minimum tirely on the need for conserva- tion of the seal herd, the minis- ter said.

The bones and thousands of teeth are all that remain of countless Bengalis killed be- tween last March 25 and Dec. It by the Pakistan army and possibly their sympathizers in East Pakistan (now Bangla- Bengali police, guides and, reporters told me this was just one of several such sites scattered over several square miles in Shialbari, part of the Dacca suburb o[ Mirpur where people were taken and killed almost daily. No one knows or probably ever will know how many persons died here although some estimates say it was more than Evidence of the killing is dotted in Hie fields. Around every dusty footpath lies a human three skulls, or four. Other bones lie nearby, long since picked clean of flesh by dogs, jackals, vultures or in- sects. Pieces of clothing can also be pair of trou- sers, a bloodstained shirt, oc- casionally a colored sari. There are clumps of human hair and ropes around the bones. They appear to have been used to tie up the vic- tims. Scattered here and there are wells once 60 feet deep and now filled to the brim with earth and skeletons. Burnt clothing and bones poked through the earth at the top of one. A local guide said some Bengalis were slain by the gradual amputation of their limbs.

WILL PAY EXPENSES Seal hunters affected will be compensated only for expenses they might have incurred in j purchasing equipment for this year's bunt. Mr. MacLaurin said the feder- ation welcomed the govern- ment's plans to phase out the annual hunt of adult harp seals and hooded off the coast of Newfoundland and Lab- rador. Mr. Davis said Wednesday the 1972 quota had been set at seals for landsmen and each for Canada and Norway. Mr. MacLaurin. however, put the figure for Canada and Nor- way at "On the be said, "most of the seals are taken by Norwegian sealers. But is such a small number it's doubtful if the Norwegians will come here even if they were guaranteed all the That small a number shouldn't Inter- est them." However, the federation was not entirely happy with the per- mission for landsmen to con- tinue operating, he said. landsmen are the semi- pros among sealets as distinct from the competent profession- als operating from the ships. Most of what cruelty the hunt has witnessed in the Gulf has come from them. "We feel the government should find alternative employ- ment for the landsmen, if in fact sealing is that important to their annual income." Mr. MacLaurin said the min- ister promised that if the lands- men failed to conduct them- selves properly, this would be their last year of scaling.

Biochemist D. B. Campbell, a metabolic research coordina- tor from London, England, sak fenfluramine cuts appetite but does not create the drug de- pendencyof amphetamines the most widely used reducing agents. Mr. Campbell speaking to the Inter national Fenfluramine Symposium here, said the drug causes a tranqirilizing effect in- stead of the stimulation or "high" of amphetamines. Dr. W. N. Dannenburg, of Richmond, Virginia, said UK risk of using amphetamines may outweigh their merit. He pointed out that the stim- ulating effect of amphetamine; doesn't bum up excess weight. Fenfluramine, on the other rand, not only reduces appetite but increases the body's ability to bum fats, ID use up sugar and decrease fat storage in tis- sue, be said. Dr. R. G.

"There are jobs in the mines, there are jobs on farms out west where some farmers com- plain they can't get help. And in Ontario, they have to import migrant workers from the West Indies to work on fruit farms because they can't find workers here. "There is work available in Canada but sometimes you have to move to get it, and accept something above the minimum wage and not buy a house in the first year." The prime minister said an unwillingness to work for lower I salaries or to relocate meant I that some of the jobs went un- filled. Mr. Trudeau also said there was "much too much monopolis- tic power exercised by profes- sional organizations at all lev- els." OTTAWA LACKS CONTROL The problem for the federal government was that in most cases the associations were more subject to provincial regu- lations than federal laws. He said it is the desire of some organizations to keep their numbers limited to salaries could be kept high. forts to took into the matters of organizations is "meeting all lands of Mr. Tru- deau said.

Terry Mitchell, a Minneapo- lis toy manufacturer, has left his business in the hands of his brother for the last two years while he devotes his time to pursuit of the mons- ters. The Sasqatch, also known as the Yeti, is a legendary man-like creature said to prowl mountainous regions of B.C. and Washington State. The Ogopogo is a sea-serpent said to haunt Lake Okanagan ir> the B.C. interior in much the same manner as Scot- land's fabled Loch Ness mons- ter. Mr. Mitchell's latest move has been to try to organize an international convention o f monster hunters to be held in April. He plans to send out 200 invitations to scientists and other interested parties around the world. He said Thursday he made his first contact with the Sas- quatch last summer in the Chuckanut Hills outside Bel- lingham, Wash., and Is con- vinced of Ogopogo's existence by pictures he has studied.
