The department also faces the possibility that defendants in those cases may file civil lawsuits claiming thousands of dollars in damages as a result of wiretaps improperly authorized by former attorney-general John Mitchell. Federal prosecutors across the United States told of a score of cases that may be lost in the wake of high court although the department still had no complete count Tuesday. The judges ruled Monday that Mitchell failed to follow the law when he allowed his executive assistants to authorize wiretap requests in the attorney-general's name. Arctic dive ends OTTAWA What may be the longest Arctic dive ever made has just been completed by divers in an Arctic expedition headed by Dr. Joe Maclnnis of Toronto. The saturation-dive experiment under the five-foot-thick ice of Resolute lasted 24 Dr. Maclnnis said Tuesday in a telephone interview from Resolute Bay. The Jim English of St. and Robert Wicklund of the spent about 18 hours of the period in an underwater station heated to about 70 degrees. The remaining six hours was spent swimming and performing underwater experiments outside-the station which was just below the surface of the ice at a depth of about 15 feet. The experiment indicates that saturation a technique used by divers to spend as much time as possible under may work in Arctic waters where the temperatures drop to 28 said Dr. Maclnnis. Last he and his crew made what was believed to be the first successful dive under the ice of the North and planted Canadian flags over and under the ice. The saturation-diving principle is based on the fact that divers absorb their breathing gases into their bloodstream and body tissues because of increased Dr. Maclnnis explained. A diver reaches the saturation point when his body will absorb no more gases. From this point a diver can remain underwater and will not require a long decompression period to return the surface. Although the test indicates divers can remain underwater for long periods in the Arctic as they can in warmer there were other factors that make long Arctic dives including weather conditions on the a lack of depth perception known as mental stress and equipment freezing.

The pipeline company has applied under a section of the Energy Board Act seeking a ruling that the pipeline was in the national interest.

But under cross- examination by farmer Peter Lewington of he was unable to list what these sound practices would be. He conceded that he had not visited any sites where pipe- lines had been constructed nor had he taken any soil samples during his study.
