Youngsters learn seal hunt tough By ED WALTERS CAP AUX MEULES, Que. (CP) - Four American teenagers who visited a seal herd on the ice of the Gulf of St. Lawrence in advance of the annual seal hunt which opened March 12 may not have learned much about the hunt itself-except that it can be hazardous. Two of the teen-agers and an American newspaper man fell to their hips through a hidden soft spot on the ice. They were pulled to safety and immediately flown back to their hotel by helicopter, r: The trip to this Magdalen Islands area was organized by a New York group called Friends of Animals, Inc., and officials said it was aimed at creating publicity to aid their campaign to ban the annual hunt in the gulf and on the "front" off Labrador. Brian Davies of Fredericton, who has conducted an international campaign to ban the hunt on grounds of cruelty and danger to the species, ac-companiedthe American group. S'usane Karliner, 15, and Richard Marino, 17, of New York, were accompanied on the trip by Joyce Lambert, an official of the New York group.. ICE WAS UNSAFE Oscar Hartzell, 18, of St. Louis, Ann Cuneio, 17, of Sullivan, Mo., and Sharon Pearson, 27, also of St. Louis, a volunteer worker for the organization, travelled from New York with Miss Lambert's group. Dick Krantz, 30, of the St. Louis Globe-Democrat accompanied them. A Canadian reporter asked Mr. Davies after the American party arrived if he was aware that Stan Dudka, chief federal fisheries officer for the gulf hunt, believed the ice was unsafe for inexperienced persons. Mr. Dudka had said in an earlier interview areas of slob -partly melted ice -w ere covered by snow and difficult to see. Mr. Davies said he did not intend to pay any attention to Mr. Dudka's views. He said two helicopters he had chartered would remain on the ice Smallwood assassination threatened ST. JOHN'S, Nfld. (CP) -RCMP are investigating threats on Premier Joseph Smallwood's life made in two anonymous telephone calls to radio stations CJON and VOCM here Thurs-drv. Ted Bartlett of CJON said an anonymous caller told him he would assassinate Mr. Small-wood within 48 hours. A few minutes later, a similar call was received at VOCM. Mr. Smallwood said he had no plans to cancel any public engagements. while the teen-agers viewed the seal pups. They were returning to the helicopters after petting some pups when Mr. Krantz and two teen-agers went through the ice almost simulaneously. They were helped to safety by Fred Beairsto of Fredericton, president of the International Fund for Animal Welfare, and immediately flown back to land. WORST IN YEARS Mr. Davies was then asked if he still believed it had been safe to take the visitors to the herd. Conditions were "the worst in several years," he reported. The youngsters were captivated by the pups and all said in interviews they should not be killed. When told that some Magdalen Islands and Newfoundland fishermen depend on the sale of seal pelts for up to 25 per cent of their annual income they suggested the gulf be turned into a seal sanctuary with facilities for tourists to visit the herd. "I think tourists would bring more money to the area than killing seals," Miss Karliner said. Miss Lambert said other industries should be created to fill the economic gap. Mr. Hartzell and Miss Cuneio said they could appreciate the federal government's unwillingness to end the hunt immediately, but "I still think it's wrong to kill them," Mr. Hartzell said. Miss Lambert said it would serve no purpose to introduce the teen-agers to local residents who depend on selling seal pelts at $5 each for extra income, since her organization's policy was to oppose the hunt. AIMED AT PUBLIC She said the purpose of the trip was to "reach the public and interest them in coming to see the seals." Mr. Davieis agreed. Mr. Hartzell and Miss Cuneio said they were unaware Norwegian ships also take part in the hunt. "You don't associate any other country with the hunt except Canada," Mr. Hartzell said. Norwegian ships, while barred from the gulf, are al-lowed under international agreement to take 100,000 seals on the Labrador front. The teen-agers said they knew nothing of the area's economy beforehand. Mr. Hartzell, who with his schoolmates circulated a petition in St. Louis demanding that Prime Minister Trudeau end the hunt, said no effort was made to obtain information about eastern Canada and the hunt from the federal govern-ment. "We got all our information from Mr. Davies," he said. Mr. Davies suggested the petition when he visited a high school in St. Louis earlier this year. All the students expressed disbelief of Canadian claims that the hunt is conducted in a humane manner and that there is no danger to the species.
