Contest rules are as fellows: Anyone in Alberta is eligi- ble and can enter as many pic- tures as he or she wants. Pictures must be taken within Alberta, and their loca- tion and the source of pollution (not who, but what) must be I listed along with the date and! taten.of day the plcture Government, Naturalists Seek Ansivers Only black and white or color prints will be accepted: j slides, motion pictures and! drawings are not eligible.

Chipewyan that some sort of instant response system had to be established to rom- bat oil spills. He visualized a "flying force" of experts co ordinated by me federal 'government and ready to move immediately to any- where it was needed. A problem, however, arises from federal provincial re- sponsibility splits; such a task force could only act w-liere fed- eral Ci'own lands were involved, or when a provincial govern- ment asked for help. j "But eventually I'd tike to see j a total umbrella in all 10 prov- 1 iiices and the north, capable of i handling any kind of pollution that arises." he said.
