His parents say lie lias suf- fered, so far, "somewhere be- tween 25 and 40 broken including five fractured verte- brae, two major leg breaks, two broken ribs and a fractured sternum (chest) bone.

By HOB CUUHU-: WASHINGTON (CP) In the I _ wmln tnft A mobile housing units arc ready !ong run, the element, of speed could bo the deciding factor fa- voring (he pj'-'jiosed Alaska ine over other schemes to tap the vast Norih Slope oil fields. JI a v i n g unburdened itself Monday of an avalanche of words analysing tlie merits of the trans-Al aska line a nd a number of alternative plans, the interior department now must make a decision. Actually, Interior Secretary Rogers C. B. Morion has four approve, deny, defer or amentt the application of the seven-compa ny consortium for permits to build tlie line already stalled two years. No other application is before him, although some environ- mental groups and others are promoting Hie idea of a Hnc down Canada's Mackenzie Val- ley, The nine-volume environmen- tal impact statement made no recommendations but made the point thai no alternative to the Alaska line economically more efficient." and that "no single oil delivery system would be free of environmental effects and of potential threats." A Canadian line generally yets higher marks on environ- mental grounds but the report seems to imply there isn' t really much to choose between (he two on economic and some other grounds. SECURITY As for TJ.S. national security considerations, the report says a trans-Canada line would be at least as secure as the Alaska line. But the Alaska line could be j in operation much sibly within three for that reason it vould be pre- ferable. Viewed side-by-side, it lime is deemed to He a crucial factor, the Alaska project certainly has a headstari. Millions of dollars worth o[ construction equipment, guarded by skeleton crews of men, already sits idly in precise rows in the AI aska n Arctic, awaiting the green light on con- struction. More than 160 miles of pipe intended to transport the oil also is (.here, costing the companies untold thousands of doliars in their battle to pre- serve it from weather damage. Work camps have been erected in several places along the proposed pipeline route and in Prudhoe Bay, on the North Slope, several hundred men liv- ing in Canadian-manufactured While the Alaska project has been studied in minuto detail from every possible angle, the Canadian government still is working on its initial study, ex- pected neNt fall. Alaska The economic analysis in- cluded in tlie impact statement noted no formal application has been made for a Canadian route and lluit no detailed engineering or design work has been done. Furthermore, it notes that many of the environmental con- G Possible Pipeline Routes PIPELINE REPORT ISSUED A Mackenzie Valley oil pipeline route through Canada would cause less damage 1o the environment than Ihe proposed Trans-Alaska pipe- line, a long-awailed interior department report, released in Washington, indicated. The reporl added lhat on the grounds of U.S. national security, the Alaska pipeline was clearly favored because ft could deliver Norlh Slope Alaska oil up Jo three years sooner than any of the other alternatives. The interior department emphasized that its statement does not conjoin any decisions. It adds that "no action on the application for the construct- ion permit will be taken for at least 45 cfays, because of the complexity of the analysis." Map shows possible pipeline routes from Alaska to the Oddities in the News led to 1 he court injunction against the Alaska line two years would also arise if application was made for a Canadian line. The emphasis on U.S, energy needs in the near future was further underlined in a recent interior department report that said: 'Vjven if It were to maintain domes tic production (of oil) near its present rate with tjie help of Alaska North Slope oil, foreign petroleum may need to he imported into the U.S. .it a rato of eight mil- lion barrels a day by as compared with 3.4 million bar- rels a in 1970."
