Satellite link planned between Arctic By JEFF CARRUTHERS Herald Ottawa Bureau OTTAWA Telesat Bell Canada and Canadian National Telecom- munications have come up with a communications offer three oil companies cannot refuse. The offer is to provide oilmen at rigs on Richards Island in the Mackenzie Delta with a satellite com- munications link direct to their head offices in Calgary. And it won't cost a dime. It's the first of a number of planned satellite commu- nications to show just bow versatile Canada's .high-flying com- munications satellite really is. And it's a tough test to begin with the Arctic winter during March and April is at its howling worst So if it works Telesat Canada will probably have some pret- ty interested potential customers on its more some customers for Telesat's own the common carriers Sarting in three major oil companies will have use of a special transportable earth a link to the Anik satellite. The set-up will in effect put extension telephones at Rich- ards Island that are connected instantaneously with the main switchboard of the oil com- panies in Calgary The oil Gulf Imperial Oil won't have to pay anything for the extra because its a test to see if in fact the system will work. Bell Canada will provide ac- cess to the Anik satellite via its telephone channel And Canadian National Telecommuni- cations will provide ac- cess to its Calgary Telex centre via the with the Richards Island Telex effectively being a Calgary customer. To call an oil man will merely have to pick up his telephone and dial a local ex- tension of the person in the Calgary head office he wants to speak to For Calgary head the call procedure will be just as simple. Long dis- tance charges will only begin if the Arctic calls go to com- munities outside of Calgary. The calls will be routed to the transportable earth relayed to the Anik satellite and then to the Allan Park mam earth station near Toronto From calls will go to to Alberta and Calgary. And since the Anik satellite is it'll take only a split second. And it will' always get through. IMPORTANT FIRST At the oil men in the Arctic must rely on troposphenc scatter radio systems which don't usually work well and often don't work at all. Telesat the govern- ment established owner and operator of the Anik regards the Mackenzie Delta experiment as an important which could lead to im- portant expansions in uses of the Anik satellites to connect temporary communities and sites of activities such as oil exploration with more permanent headquarters in the North or in southern Canada Telesat Canada is hoping eventually to convince oil and as companies to use Anik to Final 3 Days Sample provide communications links for any Mackenzie Valley pipeline. Such a multi-million dollar undertaking could in turn be the trigger for the long-awaited issuance of Telesat shares to the public. At only the govern- ment and the participating common carriers own stock in Telesat. The portable earth station for the oil experiment was designed by Hughes Aircraft of the same com- pany that built the Anik satellites. which has designed its own mobile earth plans to have some ex- periments of its own next summer. An Imperial Oil company spokesman in Calgary said Monday that the oil com- panies are interested in testing a mobile earth station on oil rigs off the east coast. He said the which are all exploring for oil on Richards Island in the Mackenzie will probably be interested in purchasing commercial satellite service there if the experiment early next year works have to negotiate the rates for that after the demonstration. The Hughes earth station is scheduled to be on display at a petroleum show in Calgary in May. New engine developed VANCOUVER A 70- year-old Vancouver Theordore says he has invented a revolutionary internal combustion engine weighing just 25 pounds and producing up to 150 horsepower. Mr Lapierre describes the engine as orbital the piston continually rotates. He says his which he says he has been working on for 50 will run on gasoline or diesel fuel or a mixture of the two. He says the engine will get 40 to 45 miles a gallon. By PETER BUCKLEY WASHINGTON President Nixon is making another attempt to throw off the web of scandal ensnaring his administration but the attempt seems certain to en- counter fresh trouble. Public cynicism is at an un- nerving fed almost daily by disclosures about the fail- the claimed inability- of the White House to produce evidence demand- ed by the courts and Congress. Responding to the voters' the list of politicians and public organizations who have advocated Nixon's resignation or impeachment has grown to cover most of the political spectrum in the United States. Nixon's new campaign is clearly a response to sugges- tions from his most faithful notably Senator Barry Goldwater of that the time has come to abandon the stubbornly-held claims of executive privilege shielding the records of Nix- on's most private conver- sations and communications. UNWINDING BEGINS He began the process in ten- tative fashion two weeks ago by agreeing to release some tape recordings demanded by ousted Watergate prosecutor Archibald Cox. Now he is speeding it up by volunteering other tapes and scheduling a round of no-holds-barred meetings with Republican members of Congress and even weighing the possibility of an encounter with the special Senate com- mittee investigating Watergate. Presidential adviser Ron never one to get ahead of public told we have been somewhat late in addressing these but we're going to meet them head The problem is not likely to be made any easier by the an- nouncement Monday that the White House can't dictation-machine belt 'con-' taming the president's own report about a crUcial meeting last April at which Watergate was discussed. Public-opinion surveys show that a majority of Americans thought the president was ly- ing when he claimed earlier that two other conversations had not been captured by the White House recording system Apart from this chasm in presidential the president's new campaign must also deal with the fact that the Watergate scandal and other allegations have already begun their slow course through the Congress and the courts. LENGTHY PROCESS Legal opinion both inside and outside the government foresees the process taking years to with each fresh tidbit from the president's newly opened files providing leads for prosecutors and politicians to follow up. Some of these factors may have helped to shape the thinking of two veteran politicians who recently spoke up about Watergate. Senator George Aiken of respected dean of the Senate's urg- ed Congress either to impeach 'the president get off his He wants the House to vote quickly on impeachment so the matter can be resolved without further damage to American public life. From where he is recuperating from a back ail- Representative Wilbur Mills said he thinks Nixon will be forced to resign. Since he maintains intimate links by phone with his House col- Mills's assessment is being regarded as one of the most ominous to reach the public ear. Nixon had seemed inclined to weather the storm of trusting that his foreign policies and domestic initiatives would restore the depleted confidence of the electorate. Now the measured assess- ments of such men as Gold- water. Aiken and Mills seem to have had their effect. But whether Nixon's promised new frankness has come in time to save his presidency is anything but certain.

PIMM 327-S2t7 and Quality for 38 SALT LAKE Utah Mars is from the geologically dead which many scientists have until now believed it to a space agency researcher says. Dr. Raymond Wilson of Uni- versity of Utah said photo- graphs taken during the two 1969 Mariner Mars probes led many scientists to dismiss the possibility of any life forms on Mars. But Wilson said closer photographs taken by later Mars probes indicate the planet's geological are quite this Mars ap- pears to be more like the earth than the said principal investigator of a space agency program aimed at unlocking the planet's secrets and planning for an unmanned Mars landing in 1976. Although he said the high-resolution pictures sent back in the 1971 probe are of good they lack the de- tail capable of showing the existence of any life forms. Mariner pictures don't answer the question of life on Mars They show that life is possible but not probable. On Mars we apparently are getting a look at the early stage of geological Wilson said the photographs had revealed some surprises including what appeared to be large volcanic one three times the height of Mount Everest and dried-up riverbeds. They also showed a giant canyon about miles long and four miles deep four times the size of Grand Canyon in Arizona.
