Earth-watch may save us By HAROLD MORRISON STOCKHOLM (CP) A tight security screen Is being wrapped around Stockholm as world delegates gather for what has been billed as the beginning of a global attack on pollution which threatens man's survival. But while more than po- lice, aided by hundreds of plain- clothes officers, keep their eyes on possible outbreaks of violimt demonstrations, the delegates themselves have their eyes glued on a document that seems to be a pale reflection of the survival crisis itself. Dan Bouvler (SC Lac La 3iche McMurray) earlier de- ected the Opposition. Mr. Gruenwald has been ourted by Alberta's first Pro- ressive Conservative govern lent. He has voiced his inten ion to vote according to hi 3ersonal convictions. Outside the House, Mr, Gruenwald said that while here have been "frustrations" sitting on the Socred bench, he has DO immediate, plans to eave the party. Dr. Bouvier said "a voice rrom an opposition party can- not be effective in obtaining 'rom the government special considerations for special needs, which is what my con- stituency needs." The Lethbridgs Insurance agent and former separate school trustee could be a valu- able asset to the Conservatives in the moves they are certain to make in coming years to get a toehold in southern Alberta, currently without a Tory MLA south of Calgary.

In detail the ritual of a secret criminal soclely, equivalent of the Sicilian Mafia. Detective Carr discovered it during a search of the home of Francesco Caccamo of Toronto June 1. (cp Wirephoto) This is the draft declaration on the human environment, Iho key document to be placed be- fore the spokesmen of more than 100 countries opening their United Nations environmental conference Monday. Maurice Strong of Canada, Hie conference's secretary-gen- eral, describes the proposed declaration as a far-reaching global action plan offering the first comprehensive 1 n t e r n a- tional attack os environmental problems. But a close reading of the draft suggests tha Immediacy of the crisis is covered in rather hazy generalities that may not lead to rigid or crushing changes in current pollution. MAY GO HALFWAY Some of the more serious op- position groups ready to protest and demonstrate against the of- ficial delegates say that the Utv is prepared to accept halfway measures rather than risk colli- sion course with some unco-op- erative countries. For example, the draft decla- ralion says man must be sparei the serious effects of testing of weapons of mass desfructioi but doesn't declare what shoulc be done about it. With both China and France still actively testing nuclear weapons in the atmosphere there may be reason for the U1S body to soft-pedal this activity which has aroused worldwide protest. However, Strong maintain there Is a basic and importan principle in the draft declara- tion: the principle that countries accept responsibility for the ef- fects of their environmental ac- tions on other countries. He maintains also that of the 120 recommendations which Iho delegates will be asked to ap- prove during their meeting, moves to strengthen global co- operation ara important If man is to overcome the environmen- tal emergency facing him in the next quarter-century. One proposal, called Earth- watch, is seen as a link-up ol 00 stations to watch and test he atmosphere around tha ;lobo and thereby provide an Jert if sudden change threatens countries or regions. A proposed permanent "UN environmental >ody also would study the possi- >ility of setting up an Interna- jonal disaster warning system which might predict and mea- sure the threat of tides and floods as well as atmospheric contamination. The draft documents steer clear of recommending any spe- cific action to curtail population growth. Strong maintains thig action Is deliberate since a world population conference is to be convened in two years to deal with that issue. On some other specific Issues, Strong said in a statement that governments already are at an advanced stage of negotiation of several conventions I o deal with such international prob- lems as dumping of toxic wastes into the oceans. The con- servation of cultural and natu- ral sites forming part of man's global heritage and the preser- vation of wetlands and islands for science. "Even these would justify the hopes and expecta- tions of those who decided at tha 19G8 General Assembly to convene the Strong said. Yet he feels ths conference will produce more, Including a new sense of direction by coun- tries realizing that economic and social interdependence is essential if man is to survive. STIR ATTENTION Meanwhile, non-official oppo- sition groups are drumming up attention arguing that the gov- ernmental delegates are not prepared to do enough. They range from the more serious Dai Dong to the more volatile and unpredictable such as Pow- Wow which Is housed In tents on Stockholm's fringes. HAD RULES A docu- ment which has been de- scribed as a complete, set of rules and regulations of a se- cret criminal society with roots In southern Italy, was discovered by Toronto police in the Toronto home of Francesco Caccamo, above 31 last Aug. 1. An RCMP pert said In court In Toronto Thursday that the document describes the rituals, regula- tions and procedures of the Honored Society, southern Italy's equivalent of the El cilian Mafia.
