Herring Catch Tonnage Limit To Be Imposed ST. JOHN'S, Nfld. (CP) The federal government plans to limit Canada's East Coast herring catch by freezing the total tonnage of all vessels en- Defends Driver System EDMONTON (CP) High- ways Minister Gordon Taylor says he disagrees with claims that the new driver demerit sys- tem violates the basic rights of an individual. He was replying to a state- ment by Calgary lawyer Wil- liam Wuttunee who said recent- ly that the system violates the basic right of an individual to defend himself because there is no hearing when the driver reaches 15 demerit points. Mr. Wuttunee said after a driver collects 15 points, a hear- ing should be held then a deci- sion made on whether the li- cence should be suspended. Mf. Taylor jaid in an inter- view here that a hearing would "undermine the whole demerit system." "The Alberta law is based on the same treatment to all and if some are to be suspended Tyhen reaching 15 and others are not to be suspended, it would be better to go back to the individual review system and do away with the demerit altogether." He said a demerit point could not be placed on a driver's file "unless that driver is convict- ed by due process of law, and a driver has the right to defend himself in court before he is convicted and points assessed." gaged in the industry, Fisheries Minister Jack Davis said Mon- day. Mr. Davis told the annual meeting of the Fisheries Council of Canada: "We are going to put a freeze on the total tonnage in our East Coast herring fleet. "We are also going to main- tain this freeze until we are sure that we have enough her- ring in sight to look after our fu- ture needs." Mr. Davis said more than tons of herring were taken in 1969, a four-fold in- crease in 10 years. "We don't know how long this great fishing bonanza can go on." NOTICED TOO LATE Effects of overfehing were seldom noticed until it was too late. The first symptom was a drop in the average size and age of fish caught. "Parent stocks may have been cut to the point where enough young herring aren't coming along to ensure their survival." Mr. Davis said the fishery would gradually take on the characteristics of a large-scale military operation as new tech- nology was developed. "The resource itself is bound to be in trouble. Faced with these odds it could be destroyed in the 1970s." Tonnage of herring catchers would be frozen by a "licence limitation scheme. "The freeze will be on ton- nage, not on numbers of ships." ALLOW REPLACEMENTS Fleet replacements could be made but essentially on a ton- far-ton carrying capacity basis. Also, because of Ottawa's con- cern about herring in the Bay of Nova Scotia and can be traded, one way, out of the area but not back into it again." Other countries fishing for hen-ing in the area would be asked to limit Uieir catches. Mr. Davis suggested Canada should become the guardian "if not the sole exploiter of all the fish over its own continental shelf." He said Canada should decide the maximum sustainable yield each year for every fish spec- ies, which could ther be broken down into national quotas. Female Scout Membership Decision Stalled WINNIPEG (CP) A final decision on allowing female membership in the boys scouts of Canada will not be made until a meeting of provincial commissioners and the national council in Charlottetown in Oc- tober. The proposal was discussed at the conclusion of a three-day meeting here of the national council but it was referred to allow more time to study. Following the meeting, the council issued a policy state- ment declaring that "the boy scouts of Canada believe co-ed- ucational experience to be an important factor in growth to adulthood." It encourages rover crews and venturer companies to in- clude co-educational activities in their programs." Suggestions that rover and venturer groups might, as indi- vidual units, elect to admit young women to their member- ship, "will be actively consid- ASSETS TO DOUBLE Ontario Hydro's assets, which reached mete than 000 in 1969, are expected to dou- ble during the 1970s.

Bottled Water Popular NEW YORK (AP) As the United States water supplies be- come contaminated, more and more Americans are pouring their drinking water from bot- tles rather than drawing it from taps. At least 70 companies now are in the business, The Ameri- can Bottle Water Association es- timates, and their sales tin's yeaf are expected to exceed That will mean a incrase in just three years. Pollution isn't providing the only pressure beneath the sales geyser. Water shortages, afflu- ence and more discriminating tastes are contributing. And new uses are being found all the time. Millions of gallons of bottled water have been used to stand- ea-dize the taste of liquors, bev- erages and other products, and dietetic considerations iisve dic- tated its use in othei prepats- tions. Some of the newer uses weren't foreseen just a decade ago. Jet aircraft fuel is some- times mixed with bottled water to keep engines cool during take- offs; and it is a final rinse in the plating of space vehicle skins. Almost every sales forecast calls for continued increases in tiie business for years to come, a fact not lost oh some of the major food and beverage com- panies which have been buying heavily into the industry. In the last year or so Coco Cola Co. has purchased Belmont Springs Water Co, near Boston. A Coca Cola bottler in Los An- geles has purchased Arrowhead and Pufitas Waters, Inc. Also in southern California, Foremost-McKesson has pur- chased Sparkeletts Drinking Water Corp., an operation that conceivably could tie in with its dairy operations. Borden Inc., another dairy products company has pur- chased Crystal Springs Co., larg- est bottled water operation in Miami. And the Nestle Co: has purchased Deer Park Spring Water Co. of Maryland. The industry originally con- sisted of spring water comp- panies, but now many bottlers begin with ordinary tap water, distill or demineralize it, and then reconstitute the product, perhaps with a bit of real spring water in order1 to give life to the taste.

Outdoor Fire Curbs Lifted In South EDMONTON (CP) The department of lands and for- ests said here rain and snow during the weekend has al- lowed it to lift restrictions on outdoor fires in southern Al- berta.

Calgary Plans Trade Mission CALGARY (CP) A trade mission to interest Japanese in- dustrialists in opening plants in Calgary will be sponsored this summer by the city. The mission, headed by Mayor Rod Sykes, will spend about two weeks talking to rep- resentatives from light in- dustry, particularly data pro- cessors and electronics manu- facturers. Mayor Sykes told the city's fi- nance committee Calgary should concentrate on specific industries using a "rifle ap- proach, rather than the shotgun approach of receptions, parties and broad advertising."
