It happened first in 1964 and then again this year, say fed- eral environment scientists, and shows what can happen with an erroneous map. News reports this year on national television, in a national magazine and in new- spapers said the snout of the glacier had retreated along the Tarr Inlet into Canadian territory in the extreme northwestern corner of British Columbia. This raised hopes for a Canadian port, and an outlet for Arctic mineral resources, along the 800-mile-long Alaska Panhandle that cuts the north- eastern part of the province off from the Pacific Ocean. It's all a silly mistake, glaciologists Simon Om- manney and Jerry H Oldsworth of the federal en- vironment department said in an interview Friday. Instead of Canada getting more land, the U.S. was getting more glacier. In fact, the snout of the gla- cier along the fiord is more than one mile over the border into American territory. The glaciologists have surveys as well as satellite, airplane and ground photographs to prove their point. Winston Smith, senior engi- neer in the federal inter- Planning, teamwork and courage have resulted in a positive gain for every employee in the general service bargaining unit of the provincial government. per month or whichever is greater, will be added to their salaries as an interim adjustment. Our mem- bers' steadfast support of their union resulted in these positive negotiations. And you can be sure that future negotiations will result in even more gains. Civil Service Association of Alberta national Boundary Com- mission, agreed that the glacier's snout is well into American territory. His de- partment had been planning an announcement to that effect. SECOND TIME To add irony to insult, this year's folly is a repeat of a similar gaff in 1964. That year a Yukon prospec- tor named Peter Versluce came upon a government map printed in 1962 which showed that the glacier had retreated about IVz miles into Canadian territory. In positioning the glacier, though, the mapmakers based their information on a 1925 map, little knowing that the glacier had pushed forward more than two miles in the intervening years. Mr. Versluce's announce- ment of a Canadian beachhead brought forward a spate of news stories and prompted questions in Parliament. Finally, the geographical branch of the then mines and technical surveys department issued a statement, backed by the facts, to say the glacier was in American territory and had been moving steadily forward there since 1938. But 10 years is a long time and people are quick to forget, said Mr Ommanney, who is doing an inventory of glaciers and has historical records on the Grand Pacific Glacier dat- ing back to 1794 when it was first sighted by British navigator Capt. George Van- couver. CRITICIZES MEDIA He 2as critical of the news media, however, for publishing the reports without checking with his department or the International Boundary Commission. The reports this year follow- ed from a July helicopter ex- pedition from the Yukon capital of Whitehorse to the small 100-acre beachhead at the snout of the glacier. Apparently, members of the expedition were convinced the glacier had not moved forward from its land base on the Canadian side into the fiord because of the small beach at the side of the glacier's base, said Mr. Om- manney. That beach, however, was nothing more than a delta formed from silt deposited by a stream that flows along the side of the glacier and into the fiord. Mr. Ommanney said the gla- cier actually has moved about 400 metres further into Ameri- can territory since 1964. The expedition members built a rock cairn on the site and raised a Canadian flag lashed to two broomsticks. Good guys bad guys in Senate OTTAWA (CP) Progressive Conservative MP Allan McKinnon. of Victoria, has his own list of political saints and sinners in the Senate. The good guys, Mr. McKinnon said in the Com- mons Friday, are those who eschew partisan political ac- tivities in favor of pursuing issues that "enhance" the reputation of the upper House. They include Senators Donald Cameron (Ind. L David Croll (L Carl Goldenberg (L Allister Grossart (PC Grattan O'Leary (PC Ernest Manning (SC Alber- ta i and a handful of others. But they are outnumbered by others whose sole aim appears to centre on doing good works for the Liberal Party of Canada. Mr. McKinnon said His bad guys list includes Senator Keith Davey (On- and Senator Davey "s deputy chairmen in the provinces. Ray Prrrault (British povern- ment leader in the Senate.

A spokes- man said the dog's name "The Monster" wasn't put on the plaque because the dog didn't phone the police.
