Pressure applied for release of captive pilots control orders under the Clean Air Act and required to inform the department by Aug. 30, 1974, as to how they would reduce smoke emission. Both companies have been the subject of investigations and complaints during the last year. OTTAWA (CP) The federal government is stepping up efforts to secure the release of two Canadians still held captive by Ethiopian guerrillas, an external affairs department spokesman said Wednesday. "It is really stepping up the pressure at the present the spokesman said. But nego- tiations were too delicate to be commented on publicly. Grant Wyatt, a 30-year-old pilot with Canwest Aviation Ltd. of Calgary, was released Tuesday after about one week as a prisoner of the Eritrean Liberation Front. He was flying a helicopter in northern Ethiopia when he was captured by the guerrillas. Two other Canadians, Can- west president Don Wederfort, 27, of Calgary, and Cliff James, 27, of Walkerton, Ont., are still being held by the guerrillas. Four Americans, including one nurse captured with Mr. Wyatt, are also in the hands of the guerrillas. Three of the Americans are geologists, two of them with the Tenneco Oil Co. of Houston, Tex., which chartered the two helicopters. The external affairs spokes- man said a Canadian embassy official in Addis Ababa is on his way to Asmara to meet Mr. Wyatt, who was released nearby. He said information gained mainly from American embassy sources suggests Mr. Wyatt and the nurse were seized to provide medical help to the guerrillas. A department spokesman said Mr. Wyatt was released near Asmara Tuesday and forced to walk to the city. Meanwhile travellers are being advised not to visit Ethiopia at this time, the external affairs department said Wednesday. "In addition to unrest in the province of Eritrea, which caused a number of kidnap- pings and attacks on foreigners in the last two months, conditions are deteriorating in other parts of an department spokesman said.

Ottawa responsible for cleanup bills WINNIPEG Canadian Federation of Mayors and Municipalities believes the federal government should assume full costs of cleaning up oil spills along the Canadian coastline. A resolution submitted to the federation's annual meeting Wednesday by the Vancouver Island community of Oak Bay said the federal government is responsible for all navigable water contiguous to Canada and also is responsible for any vessels in those waters. The resolution said the fed- eral government must accept the onus of combating any pol- lution that may result from _ that traffic. It said in the event of an oil spill or pollution by a vessel, the government should accept full costs of correcting the problem. One delegate from Oak Bay said it is far beyond the capac- ity of a small community to pay the enormous costs of cleaning up oil spills. The meeting also was told that the federal government has a fund of million from which it can obtain clean-up money, and that it has the capability of seeking com- pensation from those who caused the pollution. Three other resolutions dealing with pollution were carried by the meeting of 600 delegates, who are in the third day of their four-day convention. One seeks higher levels of financing from Central Mortgage and Housing Corp. for water pollution treatment facilities. The resolution asked that Uie percentage of project financing be increased to 90 per cent from 66, and that the loan forgiveness be increased to 50 per cent from 25. Other resolutions asked the federal government to set noise level standards and to remove excise and sales taxes from pollution control equipment. Many of the resolutions up for discussion dealt with requests for increased financial aid from the federal government. But because it was felt that they may be pre- empted by a study on public finance that is to get under way soon, they were referred to that study group. Premier Ed Schreyer ad- dressed a luncheon Wednesday and suggested that the tn-level task force on public finance is the best hope for municipalities in finding solutions to their financial problems. The premier said the final report, expected in October. 1975. probably will confirm that the provincial- municipal sector is clearly underfinanced in relation to its growing responsibilities.
