Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 12, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta July 1974 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Continuing political ferment in Portugal and worries that persist in Spain despite official reassurances about the health of Gen. Francisco Franco have thrown the Iberian peninsula into a state of anxiety. The events in Portugal which erupted April 25 with the overthrow of the old authoritarian political establishment had a predictable impact on neighboring Spain. For more than 35 Spain has been under the su- preme authority of now an old man but still capable of outwitting rivals.

Beaver Lumber Pro Hardware The April coup by the army in Portugal encouraged rela- tively elements inside and outside the Franco entourage to inject more vigor into their moves towards change in Spain. But now Portugal supposedly freed of the oppressive legacy of the old dictatorship in Lisbon is enduring the throes of politi- cal confusion. It may be that Franco will be able to cite the current trials of the Portuguese as an example of what happens when a strong anti-leftist hand is removed from the direction of affairs in countries such as Spain or Portugal. Iberia remains apprehensive. Leftists in Portugal fear that events since the April coup will encourage the army to take over direct control of the country's affairs. Even within the army opin- ions about future policies with President Spinola a veteran sus- picious of Communist and So- cialist intentions and of younger officers less averse than he to various forms of social and economic change. Fears are expressed by some army men of an alleged growth of Communist cells in the navy. Inevitably the Communists are busy developing their power within the country. One problem is that the rebellion in April was carried out in a spirit of enthusiasm but also of confusion over ideological aims. So many rebel groups were from rightist politicians sick of dictatorship to all-out revolutionaries that dissensions were bound to dis- rupt the country's hoped for advance to stable democracy.

NICHOLSON CARACAS The United States bowed Thursday to increasing pressure from other countries and declared its readiness to abandon 'tis traditional three-mile territorial limit in favor of an extending to 200 miles. The declaration by John Ste- U.S. chief delegate to the United Nations Conference on the Law of the was considered a major conciliatory gesture to speed creation of a global treaty for use of the seas. The United States came to this biggest international meeting ever willing to abandon its policy of sovereign control of its offshore waters up to three miles. The three-mile limit is a tradition dating back to the days just after the American Revolution when that was the distance a cannonball could be fired. it expressed agree- ment on a worldwide standard of 12 territorial miles in any treaty drafted here. in a position paper issued as the conference began June the U.S. indicated it would support the concept of an beyond the 12 miles in which coastal countries would exert economic control over fishing and mineral resources while not interfering with normal international navigation.

Interpreting the News Iberian peninsula area gripped by anxiety HE LOST ELECTION BUT WON A SHIRT EDSON Arthur Yates lost the election but won a shirt. Mr. the Liberal candidate in Alberta's Rocky Mountain in Monday's federal finished second to Conservative Joe Clark in a four-way race. He failed to get his deposit returned since he didn't get at least half as many votes as the winner. But he did win a shirt for his prediction of the final party standings. Mr. Yates won the shirt for the most accurate election prediction in a contest sponsored by a local clothier. He predicted the Liberals would win 139 the Progressive Conservative the NDP Social Credit and that there would be one Independent candidate elected. The final result was Liberals Conservatives NDP Social Credit 11 and one Independent. made during the last two I have been struck by the very large measure of agreement on the general out- lines of an over-all said a New York lawyer with long experience in maritime law. we are pre- pared to and indeed we would general agreement on a 12-mile outer limit for the territorial sea and a 200-mile outer limit for the economic zone provided it is part of an acceptable comprehensive The idea of a larger zone of economic control by coastal countries came into being in the early 1950s when Chile and Ecuador established 200-mile territorial limits to protect their fishing resources. FAVORED BY MOST An estimated 100 countries now favor the 200-mile-eco- nomic-zone many of them developing countries. However. the Netherlands warned the conference earlier this week that it is a to believe that extension of ocean jurisdiction favors developing states. Stevenson noted the apparent spirit of equanimity among the 148 countries although he took an indirect slap at China and Albania for speeches last week accusing the U.S. and the Soviet Union of responsibility for are not here to engage in mutual recriminations. We must roll up our sleeves and get down to the practical business of drawing up a generally acceptable constitution for the oceans before the disputes over conflicting uses of the same ocean space and unilateral ac- tion by individual states put such agreement out of our Both the U.S. and the Soviet with large naval are concerned that restrictions on passage through straits by countries bordering them might seriously affect military strategies. The 200-mile concession was almost sure to please U.S. fishermen on the East. Coast who have bitterly criticized foreign fishing especially the for depleting fish stocks. But tuna fishermen have op- posed the 200-mile concept be- cause the fish they hunt are highly migratory and are found off the shores of Latin countries like which have sternly enforced 200-mile limits and have even seized U.S. tuna boats.
