(CP) A marine biologist said Sun- day bunker oil as deep as two feet covers the beach in one area near the grounded Pana- manian freighter Vanlene. big Coyott slieep killer EDMONTON (CP) The coyote of American television cartoon fame may be dumb, but his Alberta relative is far from stupid according to fig- ures released during the week- end by the University of Alber- ta. A recently-completed survey of sheep producers in the province showed that one of every sheep Ls killed by pred- etors and 85 per cent of the losses were attributed to coy- otes. The survey showed dogs re- sponsible for M per cent with the remaining loss percentage divided among bears, wolves, foxes and mountain lions. The producers said sheep raised in open pastures regis- tered the highest losses and eagles were named the gnilfy predators in the deaths of two sheep and 11 lambs during 1971. The value of the losses to predators during 1971 was esti- mated at by the pro- ducers, the report said. Dr. William Austin of Simon Fraser University said some crabs, snails an dother sea ani- mals have died, while others have survived, but "the longer- term effects, we just don't know.'' The Vaulenc went aground last Tuesday in a heavy fog near the mouth of Vancouver Is- land's Barclay Sound. Since an estimated gal- lons of heavy bunker oil have spilled from tlie gashed ship. Dr. Austin is one of 40 scien- tists and students at a marine research centre near the wreck site. The centre was located in the area because of abundant marine life and waters that were, until last week, uncon- laminated. Dr. Austin -said lie estimates which had a deepsea vessel, three tow-boats and three barges at the scene, were suspended Sunday on request from the transport department while anti-pollution measures are taken.

Tlio two leaders held what both sides described as fruitful talks in ail excellent atmo- sphere at Heath's country place near London. Friction over Pompidovi's sudden announce- ment last week of a referendum in France over enlargement of the European Common Market was reported lo have been eas- ed. The main disagreement, aides disclosed, was over the site and role of the political secretariat planned for the Eu- ropean Economic Community when it is enlarged from the original six members to 10, in- cluding Britain. It was decided the question will be pursued at the meeting of all 10 countries lo be held in October.

Guards armed with clubs and wearing hebncts stormed barri- cades which the resLsljng con- victs had constructed in their cellhlock and in a wild melee forced all the prisoners into their cubicles. The violence left five convicts aral two guards injured.

Tax hike for schools defeated 1VA1NWRIGHT (CP) A plebescile on increasing local ta.xes by eight mills was defeat- ed Saturday leaving the Wain- Wright School Division Board with the choice of appealing di- rectly to the provincial educa- tion department for more mon- ey or making substantial re- ductions in services. The vote, one of the first in Alberta under provincial Jegi: lation, saw 757 ballots in favor, 802 against with 21 rejected.
