Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 21, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta R IH! LETHBRIDGt HEUID Thundoy, May 71, 1970 Oil Pollution Controls Urged WASHINGTON (AP) Presi- dent Nixon proposed to Con- gress here legislation to strengthen the authority of the United States Coast Guard in protecting against oil spills. He also requested ratification of three international agree- ments to combat oil pollution in international waters and said he would seek a appro- priation to establish an al- ready-autliorized revolving fund to dean up oil spills. The proposals were outlined in a 10-point message to Con- gress in which the president noted, that increased shipping has greatly increased the dan- ger of oil spills and their threat ART DIETRICH DENTURE CLINIC Certified Dental Mechanic Melropolitan Bldg. 328-4095 to the marine environment. Nixon proposed an act allow- ing the coast guard to "control vessel traffic in the inland wa- ters and tlic territorial seas of the United States." It would also empower the coast guard to regulate hand- ling and storage of dangerous cargoes on the waterfront, to set safety requirements for wa- ter-front equipment and facil- ities, and to establish safety zones or other "controlled ac- cess areas" in and near U.S. ports. Nixon also urged U.S. ratifica- tion of two new international conventions developed in Brus- sels last year by a United Na- tions agency. One would empower countries to take preventive action against vessels on the high seas which pose an imminent pollu- tion threat to national coast- lines. The other would impose a strict civil liability on the own- ers of vessels causing coastal WEEKEND SPECIAL!

The president also urged rati- fication of amendments to the 1905 convention for the preven- tion of pollution of the sea by oil, which would set interna- tional controls on discharge of oil on the high seas and prohibit its discharge within 50 miles of the coast. He said the amendments still require ratification by oher na- tions but that he is directing U.S. authorities to apply them to U.S. vessels as soon as Con- gress enacts the implementing legislation. Nixon said he is also instruct- ing the secretary of state seek international standards for construction and operation ol tankers. Montana Fossil 'Missing Link' EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) A geology professor says a fossilized creature has been found which seems to be the missing link in the evolutionary development of animals with backbones. "The animal fills the gap be- tween vertebrate and inverte- brate animals which hart existec since man began to classify ani- said Dr. Harold W. Scott, chairman of the geology department of Michigan State University. Scott said it appeared that the creature, inches long and with1 the Latin name lochriea wellsensis, was a direct ances- tor of primitive fish. In turn, fish are believed by scientists to be the ancestors of all verte- brate creates with backbones, including man. Scott said the first known fos- sils of the creature were found last summer in central Montana by William Melton, curator of -j for Patricia Bobey of Calgary, Alberta.

Engineers Must Help Society JASPER, Alta. (CP) Engi- neers must help society adjust to technological change, says Alberta Health Minister James Henderson. Mr. Henderson, an engineer, told the Western Congress of Engineering he believes his profession must become more active in social matters. He said he is convinced some of the professions "are not making the contributions that are meaningful solutions of ma- jor social problems demanded of them" and there is growing evidence the engineering pro- fession has been operating to a significant extent in a social vacuum. ;'To be sure one cannot blame all the world's ills on engineers and technology but I suggest to you there is nonetheless a very real and direct connection be- tween technological change and many of the major social prob- lems confronting us today." Job Seekers Find Grief In Alaska WASHINGTON (AP) An in- Inx of job seekers, lured by am oil boom, has created an unem- ployment problem in Alaska, iays Republican Senator Ted Stevens of Alaska. Unemployed residents of the ower 48 U.S. states are rushing to Alaska, only to find (here are no jobs, Stevens said in an in- terview. Now Alaska, which tradition- ally has welcomed newcomers, is urging job-seekers to stay away unless they have a job al- ready nailed down. Court injunctions obtained by conservationists have stifled the North Slope oil boom and turned an expected employment in- crease into a decrease, he said. The court orders are holding up construction of a biUion-dol- ar oil pipeline, access road-and pulp mill which in turn has re- sulted in a slowdown in oil dril- 'The state may have to start >rojeets to employ he said "But they will be Alas- SNOW FLOWERS The snow buttercup, found ugh in the Rocky Mountains often blooms under a deep snow bank. Castro Misses Sugar Target MIAMI (AP) Fidel Castro has admitted for the first time that lie may not reach this year the record sugar crop on which he repeatedly has staked the honor of his revolu- tion. Castro made the admission in a speech at a Havana welcome rally last night for the re- turn of 11 Cuban fishermen who were kidnapped by U.S.-based exiles. The broadcast speech was monitored in Miami. The Cuban premier said his enemies have speculated that he is seeking an incident such as the fishermen kidnappings or recent exile guerrilla landings on which to blame sugar diffi- culties. But he told cheering thou- sands in front of the former U.S. embassy: "If the goal is not we will have two things, a moral defeat without a doubt, and we will have to find among ourselves the blame and study with courage the causes." Seated with Castro on a plat- form set up atop two trucks were the fishermen, just flown to Cuba from the Bahamas. They had been put on tiny Wil- liam Island after their capture in Cuban waters more than a week ago. Alpha 66, an anti-Castro or- ganization, released them after Castro spurned a prisoner ex- change and the U.S. govern- m e n t expressed displeasure over the incident. It's Illegal To Call Cop 'A Pig' BUFFALO, N. Y. (AP) The city council voted Tuesday to make it illegal to call a police-' man a pig. The council amended the dis- orderly conduct code to prohibit srinting or uttering the word 'pig" or "pigs" when directed at any government official, po- iceman or school administra- tor. In passing the law, the council ignored a legal opinion from the city corporation counsel calling ;he move unconstitutional. The ordinance was introduced n the wake of disturbances at the State University at Buffalo. CLAREMONT, N. H. (AP) Two young men have been found guilty of grunting like pigs at a policeman and fined 550 each. Bruce McDonnell, 18, of Clare- mont, and Gr'eg Preston, 24, of Dover, were charged with 'making loud noises by grunt- ng like pigs and directing the grunting at a uniformed police officer."
