Protest foreign encroachment U.S. may quit fishing commission New York Ttaei Sendee WASHINGTON The Unit, ed States may withdraw from a 24 year old International Fishing Commission as a sym- bolic protest over the growing encroachment by foreign fish- ermen off the American coast, a commerce department offi- cial has reported. With congressmen from New SAND GRAVEL ASPHALT TOLLESTRUP SAND AND GRAVEL Construction Co. Ltd. PHONI k England charging that the sit- uation has reached "crisis pro- portions" for some American ishermen, several members of Congress are pushing a bill that would temporarily pro- hibit foreign fishermen from working waters up to 200 miles from the American coast, in- stead of the present 12-mile limit. DEPLETE SUPPLIES The problem of foreign com- petition is not a new one for American fishermen, who complain that the foreigners are subsidized by their gov- ernments and that they have 'larger boats and crews that are depleting supplies of fish which Americans have depend- ed on for a livelihood. The International Commis- sion for the North Atlantic Fisheries is a 15-nation body established to regulate fishing problems, but officials say it has not succeeded in protecting American fishing rights. At the annual meeting just ended in Copenhagen, the United States was unsuccessful in get- ting other members to agree to stricter quotas 'which the commerce department wanted. Quitting the commission would have a two-fold purpose, according to Howard W. Pol- lak, the deputy administrator of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Adminis t r ation. It would, he said, serve as a "stunning jolt" to the other countries involved, calling at- tention to the severity of the situation in American eyes. "It would also make it neces- sary to start over with the other countries giving us the diplomatic advantage of initi- ating new he said. We'd be starting from scratch, and things could only get bet- ter, because they couldn't get worse" MACLEODS CENTRE VILLAGE MALL I MONDAY JULY 9th DAY MOTOR OIL KLEENEX PAPER TOWEL 10-30 Regular. 95c. per. quart Papular LIMIT 4 QUARTS PER CUSTOMER 2.roll pack Until 3 Cuttomtr Shampoo Both Oil Men's Nylon Hose 9 Inch Paper Motes Future Acrylic Wax sil.10.13 for 3 3 2741. oz.

Studtis, the Demo- cratic representative from the Cod area of Massachu- setts, bas introduced the bill to extend the exclusive fishing waters of the United States from 12 miles to 200 miles on an emergency basis. The bill was introduced in the Senate by Sen. Warren G. Magnuson, D-Wash. Hie bill faces opposition from the administration, which fears that other countries might interpret such a move as a sign of intended toughness at the world-wide Law of the Sea Conference early in 1974, and from the tuna and shrimp industries, which do most of their fishing off the coasts of other countries, which might retaliate and extend their own waters. Explorers seek lost continent New York Times Service ENCINO, Calif. An ex- pedition of oddly assorted ex- plorers have left New York by plane for the Spanish Gulf of Cadiz where they believe that psychic vibrations out of the void of miUeniums win guide, them to the lost continent of Atlantis. Some 70 scholars, teen- agers, vacationing school teachers and footloose adven- turers have signed up for the search for the legendary "great and wonderful empire" that supposedly vanished be- neath the' sea some years before Plato wrote of it in the Fourth Century, B.C. The organizer and co-di- rector of the expedition, which is made up of ama- teurs from the ages of 17 to 67, is Mrs. Maxine Asher, an attractive 42-year-old special- ist in audiovisual techniques at Pepperdine University and the mother of four children. To assemble what she insists is proof of Atlantis' ancient ex- istence a quest that has oc- cupied her for the last 12 years. Mrs. Asher said: "we lit- erally sold the family my raise to get this expedition going." "I simply know we wfll find it because I am she said at the headquarters here of the Ancient Mediterranean Research Association. "I think we will find Atlantis because we are finally com- bining psychic knowledge with scientific and academic Hats. There are proofs of Atlantis, but no one has recognized them before. We have not dis- covered this lost continent be- cause our civilization was not ready to discover it." She said the reason most -Americans do not believe in the psyche is that "our edu- cators have felt too threatened by it." "I am confident we will find proof of Atlantis off Cadiz be- cause, for me, the vibrations are strongest there, and even- tually we will follow it all along the Atlantic perimeter of Europe, Africa and Amer- ica." Most of the 20 members of the expedition's faculty and staff profess to some degree of metaphysical or extrasensory power, although the gift of psychic insight is not a condi- tion for joining the expedition. Some talk of reincarnation, and of discovering beneath the waters of the Gulf of Cadiz surroundings they had in another life.
