GM safety officials have frequently at- tempted to convince the Na- tional Highway Traffic Safety Association that the standards should be eased. The association, an arm of the transportation de p a r t m e n t thinks the auto industry is drag [ing its feet. The industry can meet the Au gust 1973, deadline if it really vants to, said an association spokesman. When a company says i cannot, we bdieve they are really saying they cannot mee :he dates within the funds they lave chosen to allocate to this irogram." The association, which issued the controversial passive re straint standard on March 4, i .0 make some modifications in he order soon. "We are not insisting on ai bags but rather on what we cal a passive restraint system, am if auto firms can accomplish the same end with extra padding :hat would be all sak one official. Washington and the auto in dustry agree that regardless o how the standard is phrased, air bags are the big item in the new drive for highway safety.

The auto firms and the fee eral government disagree ove- What the proposed passive re- straint systems would cost th car buyer and also about its ef ficicncy. As the association original' envisaged it, the passive r straint system would have to b capable of protecting car occi pants from injuries in crashe up to 30 miles an hour. Th: would be for 1974 cars, with th speed figure increased to m.p.h. by the time the thir generation of the restrain sy tern was developed. The safety association sa: the first passive system won' cost the car owner about more than he now pays for se and shoulder harnesses, b auto men indicated they fe that figure was low and th to would be more a curate. The air bag system diseusse to date would protect only t front seat occupants. By 1376, would be extended to rear se occupants as well. Critics of the ah- bags say 111 noise the bags make when the inflate is a threat to the ea drums of car passengers. The also say the force of the infl tion could tear the dashboard the rear seat asunder. INHRN1IION1I SAI1S MtNAGElftlNl Moved Alberta buffalo die of broken heart? ST. JOHN'S, Nfld. (CP) Did the buffalo placed on Bru- nette Island on the south coast of Newfoundland commit sui- cide? Did they yearn so much :or their homeland in Western 3anada that they died of bro- ken hearts? What happened? No one seems to know for lure. Twenty-four of the animals were brought to Newfound- and in 1964 from Elk Island National Park in Alberta and released on Brunette Island in Fortune Bay. Today, only four of them are known to exist. One buffalo was drowned during unloading operations. Two died later when they fell or jumped over a cliff into the sea. Others have simply dis- appeared without anyone knowing what happened to them. Wildlife officials say there is no confirmation of poach- ing. To add to the mystery, an examination of the carcasses of two animals found under a cliff showed no disease or other apparent cause of death. There is still hope, however, that the species can survive in Newfoundland. In addition to the four re- maining buffalo on Brunette Island, there now are six na- tive animals roaming the is- land, the provincial wildlife department says. The young animals, offspring of the origi- nal herd, are reported doing well. Frank Manuel, Newfound- land's chief wildlife biologist, says "the fact that the Bru- nette-born calves can survive is encouraging." This is the main thing the department set out to do when it imported the buf- falo seven years ago. The idea was to prove the possibility of supplementing Newfound- Travelling show tours province EDMONTON (CP) Ciladel- on-Wheels, the "travelling >ranch" of Edmonton's profes- sional Citadel Theatre, has just concluded its third season, "the most successful says Olive Finland, general manager. The six-actor company visits schools throughout the province ;o perform plays, Mrs. Finland said. And judging by the re- sponse from principals, teach- ers and parents, this type of participatory theatre is a stimu- lus to students. During the eight-month sea- son, the touring company vis- ited 94 communities and gave 364 performances in 180 schools Tue total audience was students. During the season, the Cita del-on-Wheels became Citadel on-Wings, flying air miles to perform in six Eskimo com munities in the Northwest Terri lories, she said. The trip, jointlj sponsored by the secretary o s t a t e 's department and the Northwest Territories govern ment, was the second northern trip for the company.

The Brunette-born bison may form the nucleus of a :ierd for the province. Meantime, a caribou herd started on Brunette Island hi 1962 increased annually until it reached an ehtimated 150 animals in 19C9. This is a density of more than 20 ani- mals a square mile on the seven-square-mile island and considered much higher than the supporting ability of the range. The solution to the problem was seen in an open season for hunters with a con- trolled harvest of 70 caribou. There was no open season in 1970, but this year 60 hunt- ers will be issued licences to try their luck on the island. The harvest will again be con- trolled.
