But there seem to be no bard and fast rules. Neither Spassky nor the So- viet Chess Federation has said what he will do with his money.

"They have the richest un- derwater biological slocks that Ihe world knows he said. "This is certainly an area which should be protected for recreational purposes and for I tourism. "I personally don't think a precious inland sea should he an area traversed by large I tankers and big freighters car- rying loxic chemicals." Mr. Davis said protecting the fisheries, wildlife above the ocean and the flora and fauna generally is sound engineering, economics and ecology. 3 senior officers promoted OTTAWA (CP) The promo- tions of three senior Canadian Armed Forces officers were an- nounced today by the defence department.

Canadian missing in sliip mishap LONDON (CP) A Canadian youth is believed to have been killed in the collision between a French wcathership, the France II. and an American-owned yacht on which he was travel- ling. The Canadian high commis- sion here reported the incident Tuesday and in Ottawa the ex- ternal affairs department defi- nitely identified the Canadian as Ted Young, 24, of Toronto. The department said he is missing and presumed dead after the crash in the Atlantic southwest of the Azores July 1. No olher Canadians were aboard. The owners of the American yacht had advertised here in several places, including the high c o m m i s s i o n, for crew members to take an extended journey which would eventually end in Panama. But 12 hours after leaving Britain the yacht, a converted fishing boat, was sliced in two hy the French vessel. Four of the crew Americans and a rescued by the France II. The body of a woman was later found but six others are still missing. British officials have so far been unable to find a complete list of all those aboard the acht and liigh commission spokes- men here say the matter is teing dealt with by the external affairs department in Ottawa. The accident happened only hours after the French ship had collided wilh a racing vessel manned by Sir Francis Chiches- ter who had been taking part in a translantic yacht race. Sir Francis had dropped out of the race because of illness and the French vessel went to his assistance. He waved the France II away but the two ves- sels drifted too close and col- lided, damaging the Chichesier boat. CHICK-TALK Chicks of the emu can 'com- municate with each other before hatching. Goyer agrees to look into RCMP discipline KEGINA Solicitor- General Jean-Pio'Tc Goycr agreed Monday to take an "in- depth" look at Ihe nCMP's in- ternal disciplinary procedures. Mr. Goycr made Ihc state- ment after a meeting with for- mer RCMP coi-poral .lack Ram- say, who recently wrote an arti- cle for a national magazine in which he said morale in the force was low, the alcoholic rate high and Ihe siu'cide rate seri- ous. The chance meeting here resulted from a conversation be- tween the two on a CKCK radio open-line show. Mr. Goyer agreed to meet with Mi1. Ramsay immediately after the show and the two talked for more than 45 minutes in an office at the radio station. "Mr. Ramsay is most con- cerned about the disciplinary actions in the force and this is of concern to Mr. Goycr said following Ihe meeting. "I am much concerned with the rights of the individual." The former RCMP corporal, who says his only objective in bringing his changes to the pub- lic is to attack the cause of the iroblems, said he wants to eave tilings in the hands of Mr. "If this leads to changes it vill have a Iremendous effect on Mr. Ramsay said. "If I thought I would have jeen able to meet with Mr. PUCKER UP, P.E.T. Prime Minister Trudeau dons o true Valentino expression as he gels a kiss from a little girl named Susie during International Caravan feslivilies in Toronto. Hostile reaction from Tories meeting wins support of opposition party By CY FOX LONDON (CP) The disclo- sure by Wilb'am Whitelaw that he met representatives of the underground Irish Republican Army in his capacity as minis- ter for Ulster affairs has won support from the opposition Labor party but stirred hostile reaction in some Conservative quarters. "Experience in other situa- tions has taught British leaders over the years that peaceful set- tlements often require meetings with men who have blood on then- says an editorial today in The Times, which voices approval Whitelaw's policies m general. Opposition Leader Harold Wil- son expressed "sympathy hand understanding" for the Conserv- ative minister and said White- law was right to meet the lead- ers of the IRA's militant Provi- sional wing in London last Fri- day. But Tory rebel Enoch Powell said the meeting only intensified the feeling that "the British government is not determined before all tilings to maintain the integrity of the Uniled Kingdom and that a way out lie found lo override the will of the majority in Northern Ireland." Britain must prove to the world that its object for the foreseeable future is to main- tain the status of Northern Ire- land as part of the U.S., Powell said. TELEGRAPH DISAPPROVES Another hostile reaction to Whitelaw's Monday statement came from the Conscrvalivc- supporting Daily Telegraph The Whitelaw meeting wilh the IRA men "was a disaster." the London newspaper con- tended. "It precipitated a breach of the (Ulster) truce because it convinced the IRA that there were limits to the conces- sions which (Whitelaw) was prepared to says a Tele- graph editorial. "Far worse, the fact that the meeting is known to have taken place and the fact that Mr. Whi- telaw was apparently prepared even to 'consider' IRA proposals will do his reputation in Ulster grave and possibly irreparable damage. "By taking part in this meet- ing, Mr. Whitelaw committed a senous misjudgment and wha will seem to most Unionists a breach of faith." Unionist MP Stanley Me Master denounced the minis ter's action as "totally wrong' in view of the more than 4W murders which have lormed part of the violence in Ulster during the last three years. Unless the government is pre pared to bring justice to Ulster outraged members if the popu lation "will certainly take mat ters into their own McMaster said. Divorce law point to supreme court VANCOUVER (CP) Law- yer David Nultal announced here that a British Columbia court of appeal ruling that could deprive thousands of di- vorced women of their mainten- ance will be taken to the Sup- reme Court of Canada for a final decision. Mr. Justice A. B. Robertson of the appeal court last month held that two previous B.C. Supreme Court decisions on maintenance payments for Mrs. Josephine Teresa Zachs were invalid under Canada's Divorce Act passed in 1968. The original maintneance or- der for Mrs. Zachs and her eight-year-old child was made after a divorce decree nisi the first slage before the final I decree had been granted. The judge then referred the decision on the amount Lo Ihe supreme court registrar in the normal way, after deciding that Louis Zachs was liable for whatever amount was set. A second order by another supreme court judge later rais- ed the amount. Mr. Justice Robertson held, in effect, that under the 196! act, the judge granting the de- cree nisi must determine the amount to be paid and must deal with this before the decree is granted. Mr. Justice Robertson said al the time that he hoped Ihe im- portant question of law raised in the Zachs case would come before the Supreme Court of Canada. 'Vi Gets to crawling bogs before they get tc yon. Kill; ants where they live. How to stop crawling insects from crawling in on you this summer. Not all the bugs thai bug you in Ihe summertime are airborne. Roaches don't fly. Nor do ants, spiders, water-bugs, fleas, crickets, earwigs or silverlish. And trying to stop them with a spray insecticide that's meant for killing flying insects is tough. Because those bug killers don't have the staying power that Crawl-Tox has. The big difference in Crawl-Tox is an ingredient called Diazinon. It keeps working effectively week after week. Spray base- boards, drain pipes and steps and you'll stop mostground attacks before they even get started. Unless you have a special ant problem, of course.. If you do, the best defence is to attack with Tat Ant Traps. Just place Tat Ant Traps wherever you see ants indoors or out. Ants will take bait from the traps back to the colony and in 3 lo 5 days, the entire colony will be destroyed. Crawl-Tox and Tat Ant Traps. Between them they can stop anything that crawls. Goycr in the first place I never would have written the article." He said a member of the force could never talk lo a member of Parliament for fear of being charged and sentenced to a maximum of one year im- prisonment. Mr. Ramsay, who quit the force nfter 14 years, is a private investigator in Regina. During the radio conversa- tion, Mr. Coyer said he has con- cerns about the RCMP and from lime to time policy Is re- viewed. He said the government Is looking at the recruiting policy and an expanded role for tha force at the federal level. Prestous to pedal 10-speeds across Europe lo Singapore PRINCE GEORGE, B.C. (CP) With luck, and a lot of pedalling, Bruce Preston and his wife Joyce will be in China next April. The Prestons leave London in mid-August and plan to pedal through 15 countries to Hong Kor.g on 10-speed bicycles. Mr. Preston, a 33-year-old lawyer in this central British Columbia city, said here he and his wife have been planning the trip for six months. He said they caught the bicycling bug three years ago in Europe and have been cycling ever since. The first hop is to Toronto by train at the end of July. From there they will stop off in Ot- tawa to try for entry papers into China from the Chinese em- bassy before flying lo London. The pedalling begins in ear- nest when they land in France. From there it's on to Switzer- land, Ilaly, Greece, tlirough the Middle East to India, a plane to Bangkok and then down the Malay Peninsula to Singapore. From there they fly to Hong Kong and hope to enter China before catching a plane home. Mr. Preston said their biggest problem, aside from limited tourist facilities in some coun- tries, will be the clothing for his wife. "Some of the mid-east coun- tries aren't used to women doing this sort of he said. "They have some ideas on a woman's role and I don't know what Joyce may have to wear to get across."
