"These people are concerned with the environment. They breathe the same air I do." The Alberta-born scientist said there now is more reason and less emotion in Ihe approach to environmenlal problems and the importance of research is being recognized. Dr. Holmes heads ERA In-slrumenls Lid., a Calgary-based consulting firm which applies detection techniques developed for mililary purposes to the peace-lime problems of environmental research. He said the modern environmental scientist is making increased use of such sophisticated tools as aircraft, computers and false color infra-red photography. Infra-red photography first was used during the Second World War as a reconnaissance technique, operating on the principle all objecls emit kinds and levels of light radiation.' "The film and instrumentation has been greatly refined since then hut this technique is slill a relatively new tool for He said the technique now helps to gather information on plant populations, land use, soil texture and a number of other ecological data. It discloses areas where vegetation is being affected or "under slress" from factors such as air pollutanls or insect infestation. The film will show you where the trouble is but it doesn't reveal the you still have to go out there and make an eyeball assessment to determine Dr. Holmes said. The firm also uses the line scanner, an experimental device which records ground emissions on magnetic tape which can be interpreted to indicate the cause and location of slress. Commissioned to do a five-year study on the environmental effects of sulphur emissions from natural gas processing plants, the company hopes techniques will help Identify and correct potential environmental problems before permanent ecological damage occurs. The program Is on behalf of Ihe Whilecourt, Alia., environmental study group, an organization supported by eight companies. "There is a serious lack of data on Ihe environment said Dr. Holmes, who spent more Ihan 10 years as a sclen-lisl with Ihe federal government. "We can begin to develop some guidelines hut at the end of the five-year study we should have a mass of information on which to base realistic legislation." Dr. Holmes says preliminary studies in the Whilecourt forest area in northern Alberta, where sour gas processing plants have oneraled for up lo 10 years, indicate no permanent damage as a result of sulphur emissions. However, he said, there is an area in the Cypress Hills of southern Alberta where a train of six wagons came up from Billings, Mont., in 1946 and the tracks still are visible.

He Increased the exchange's fees for listings and othej services, bought in management consultants to examine staffing and procedures and set about weeding out companies which had not lived up to Exchange requirements. exi VANCOUVEFv (CP) -Thomas A. Dohm was out as president of the Vancouver Stock Exchange Wednesday as a result of an impasse between lu'm and the exchange board o governors over his acceptance of a directorship with the Bank of British Columbia. The governors felt there was a conflict of interest between his duties as the professiona head of the Vancouver Ex change and those as a bank di rector. The Bank's shares are traded on the VSE. There was a difference In statements over the method of his departure. The governors said Mr Dohm had resigned as a resul of the impasse. Mr. Dohm said the governors demanded he resign his bank directorship an( when he refused they demand ed his resignation. Mr. Dohm was adamant tha there was no conflict of interest and said in an interview Wednesday night that the gov ernors had "over-reacted." His departure from the presi dency, reported to pay a year, leaves the VSE without a top man for the second time in just more than a year. His predecessor, John A. Van jUVcn, resigned in October 1971, after a clash with the governors over policy. Jlr. Dohm resigned as a jus-ice of the B.C. Supreme Court o accept the VSE presidency and took over last Feb. 1. He had undertakne a considerable re-organization of the 'SE and ils operating rules arid was considered by the bus-ness and financial community o have brought the exchange new prestige and direction. Temporarily, the exchange will be headed by George R. Vright, chairman of the board f governors and manager here or Richardson Securities of Canada. Mr. Wright, in a statement ssucd on behalf of Ihe governors said: "Mr. Dohm has terminated his employment with :ie Vancouver Slock Ex-hange; he has given us his esignation. "Mr. Dohm is an honorable man. He feels he is right. As as as "Lhis industry is he B.C. in the remote possibility of something there being a conflict of interest I would abstain from voting on that matter." Mr. Dohm said that the bank and the Exchange had been considering joint operation of what he termed "some mechanical things." He would not elaborate.

Environment Minister Jack Davis announced Wednesday that regulations would be introduced under the Clean Air Act so that, after Jan. 1, 1974 no gasoline manufactured or imported for use in Canada coiid contain more than 2.5 grams of lead per gallon. Dr. A. B. Morrison, assistant deputy minister, federal health protection branch said lead levels in the atmosphere in several American cities have been shown to have increased in recent years and about 98 per cent of the lead in air comes from leaded gas. "Anytliing that will reduce these levels is he said. Officials of Pollution Probe and of the Consumers' Association of Canada said they were glad to see the federal government had taken action. LEVELS VARY Present lead levels in gaso-ines vary, from about one gram n low-lead gasolines now coming on the market to about four grams per gallon in premium gasolines, said Dr. S. 0. Winth-rop, director general of the environment department's air pol-ution control directorate. In Toronto, officials of laws id content Oil Ltd., the only company selling no-lead gas in Canada, said they wanted time to study the proposals before making comment. Officials of Imperial Oil In Toronto and of Petrofina Canada Ltd. and Texaco Canada Ltd., both In Montreal, also declined comment immediately. Murray Long, Pollution Probe's communications co-or-dinator, said reduction to 2.5 grams "is a pretty small step but at least it's a step." Pollution Probe uses a propane-powered vehicle for its work, he said. "It's definitely less both because there is no lead and because exhaust emissions are minimal. PRESENT LEVELJ3 SAFE Dr. Morrison said there is no danger of lead poisoning from present levels in air In Canadian cities, but the removal of a potential hazard was welcome. Although lead poisoning from air has not been reported, lead poisoning from lead in paints and glazed pottery was a health iazard until these were recognized and prohibited, he said. Lead remains in the atmosphere for a considerable length of time and also settles into the soil. Dr. Morrison said lead is found in higher quantities in soil in cities and along highways. From Hie soil, the lead will be aken up in plants, including food plants such as carrots, he said.
