Log- ging on the Bbickfeet Indian Reservation near Glacier Na- tional Park has alarmed the park service. Glacier Park Superintendent William Briggle has sent a strongly-worded letter to the Bureau of Indian Affairs pro- testing the effect logging has on the water quality, fire threat and esthetics of the park. Since the 1360s timber has been logged from acres of the reserve to supply a mill at the tribe's industrial park in Browning. The mill is owned by U.S. Plywood Champion Papers. The park superintendent said he was particularly concerned about a contract to cut timber between the Hudson Bay Divide and the St. Mary River near Highway 89 along the east boundary of the park. Mr. Briggle listed his con- cerns: soil disturbance as ft re- sult of road building which may effect water supplies, slash burning which, II not carefully controlled, could en- danger park resources, 1 the "depreciation of esthe- tic values" noticeable by tra- vellers on U.S. 09. Reservation Superintendent George Shelhammer and John Russell, head of timber man- agement on the reservation for BIA, both said logging will con- tinue. "In lome places this year there will probably be cutting right up to the park said Mr. Russell. Mr. Shelhammer said "this Is a private resource, managed by the BlacWeet tribe." He turned down a request from the park superintendent for any statement about the environ- mental impact of logging. "Not being a federal or public resource, it doesn't require preparation of an environmen- tal impact Mr. Shelhamer said of the reserve timber.

(CP) A score of persons were given emergency first aid treatment Wednesday night when a chlor- ine gas leak forced the evacua- tion of a hospital, movie theatre and the pulp mill at which the leak originated. Death penalty demanded by adamant policemen ST. JOHN'S, Nfld. (CP) The Canadian Police Associa- tion unanimously passed reso- ution Wednesday calling for capital punishment to be ex- :ended to include all crimes "In which acts of violence result in he death of any person."

World Chess Federation sources said this latest demand j from the 29-year-old Fischer represented a clear threat to the continuation of the match as it directly contravened the Am stcrdam agreement under j which the 2-1-game series is being played. sents municipal and pro- vincial police officers through- out Canada. In its resolution, the organiza- tion said persons who take the life of another "while commit- ting such crimes as child moles- tation, rape, air piracy, political assassination, treason and rob- bery must be charged with capi- tal murder" and should face the death penalty. The police organization says that in cases where persons are found guilty of capital murder and all levels of judicial appeal have been exhausted and no recommendation for mercy is forthcoming from the judicial process, "the federal cabinet shall be prohibited from Inter- fering with that sentence and subsequent punishment." In cases where recommenda- tion for mercy is forthcoming in the judicial process, "the fed- eral cabinet should be permitted to commute the death sentence. However, the alternative to the death sentence should be lim- ited to natural or true life im- prisonment." RESISTANCE URGED The association urged that the federal government and mem- bers of the opposition either strongly resist any move that would extend the present five- year trial period for restricting capital punishment or eliminate capital punishment altogether. During the trial period, capi- tal murder charges are laid only in cases involving the kill- ing of a policeman or prison guard. The resolution reiterated the organization's belief that the vital issue be left in the hands of the people of Canada in the form of a national referendum. "As protectors of the Cana- dian the association said, "we will accept and abide by their decision whatever it may be."
