The figure represents an in- crease of over last sum- mer when, Mr. MacEachen said, his department was able Commercial Fishing Banned TORONTO (CP) Ontario has prohibited commercial fishing in a dozen lakes and riv- ers from the Quebec to the Manitoba borders because of mercury contamination. Lands and Forests Minister Rene Brunelle told the legisla- ture sports fishing will be al- lowed to continue but anglers will be warned to eat fish from the contaminated waters only occasionally. Fish taken from half a dozen lakes in the Kenora district should not be eaten at all. Commercial and sports fish- ing already have been pro- hibited in the Detroit and St. Clair rivers, Lake St. Clair and the Wabigoon River and Clay Lake in the Dryden district. The waters where commercial fishing was prohibited today: Huron fronting on Lambton County, for yellow perch. Erie fronting on Essex and Kent counties, yellow pick- erel and white bass. River from Chau- diere Falls to the Quebec bound- ary, all commercial fishing. Lawrence River and Lake St. Francis from Hobt. L. Saunders dam at Cornwall to the Quebec boundary, all com- mercial fishing. the Kenora District, Ball, Indian, Grassy Narrows, Lount, Separation, Umfreville, Tetu, Swan and Eaglenest all commercial fishing. Mr. Brunelle said mercury pollution that has closed some come from Ontario, the. Wabi- goon River system flows west. He said the mercury level from all the mentioned waters is high1 enough to prevent its ex- port sale. He declined' to give the house a figure but the level set for safe export is .5 parts per million. Although Ontario may be the source of pollution for Mani- toba, as Quebec is believed to be a source for the Ottawa River, Mr. Brunelle said he did not think there would be inter- provincial legal action. to place 93 per cent of the post- secondary students applying for .employment assistance. Opposition Leader Robert Stanfield told the manpower minister he wished him the best of luck with his summer student placement programs, but branded the government's ap- proach to the problem as "com- placent." The real problem, he said, is the government's over-all eco- nomic policies which are caus- ing unemployment "in the name of anti-inflation "Students looking for work this summer will be competing with others already looking for work." Lome Nystrom ton-Melville) said the minister's '93-per-cent figure for successful- ly-placed students did not.take into account that many were nol fully employed and some die not receive a wage large enough to finance their return to school. Creditiste Leader Rea: Caouette said the government should give incentives to private enterprise to hire students: If the problem is not treated as urgent, he said, students rail get busy at other things on their own and "drift to solutions that nobody wants." David Orlikow peg North) asked whether the manpower department would in- troduce a program to ensure all students are employed through- out the summer. He said half the students last year were able to work only part of the sum- mer. Mr. MacEachen said he hoped the joint program with the Ca- nadian Chamber of Commerce would solve this problem.

The federal government is appealing the decision. Dr. Robert F. Borkenstein of Indiana University in Blooming- ton, said in an interview yester- day at a seminar on medical as- pects of traffic accidents that he developed the container two years ago. Legislation that would require police officers to give suspects samples of their breath was withheld by the federal depart- ment of justice because a suita- ble container could not be found. Dr. Borkenstein said the con- tainer is a "little tube about as big around as a pencil and half as long" which would probably cost less than He said it is inado of plastic, contains calcium chloride crys- tals and can store breath sam- ples for up to a year.

The officials also lifted a news blackout on cases of sus- pected, arson and offered a reward for information leading to "the positive identification of the person or persons who are alleged to have set several fires within the city within the past two- weeks." RCMP Sgl. J. L. West told a news conference that although more than 60 items of informa- tion have been checked, no pro- gress has h e e r. made in at- tempts to detect the suspected arsonist. He said some of the mate- rials recovered from the recent fires will be sent to the RCMP's crime detection laboratory in Edmonton for analysis. NEWS BLACKOUT Sgt. West said Red Deer news media agreed Frdiay, not to car- ry any news stories on new fires set by the suspected arsonist. The suspect "appeared hungry for publicity" and it was hoped that a news b'l a c k out would make him bolder and easier to catch. But no cases of suspected ar- son were reported during blackout period. A fire at the Nu-Way apart- ments last Wednesday was the most recent case of suspected arson. Police called it the suspected arsonist's "most serious at- tempt." It was extinguished by resi- dents of the building and caused little damage. The first case of suspected ar- son occurred April 21 in a res- taurant under construction. Firemen discovered that boards had been piled against a wooden _wall and ignited. The next case was a fire in the basement of a YMCA build- ing on April 24. At the same time, fire damaged a stairwell at the nearby South School. On April 28, the former 'Cen- tral School, a city landmark for 64 years, was destroyed by fire and arson was suspected. The, building was being used for of- fices by the school board.
