Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 15, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Wednesday, November 15, 1972 TOT LFIXMTOGl HEKA19 Early ecological warning system for man revealed By NELSON BRYANT New York Times Service NEW YORK It Is no sec- ret that the unused sensitivity of many of the world's wild creatures to the degradation 'of their habitat provides an eco- logical early warning system for man. Rachel Carson's shat- tering "Silent for ex- ample, revealed that certain persistent pesticides had inter- ferred with the reproductive po- tential of some birds, and the same was later proved true of Maine's landlocked Sebago sal- mon and the Coho salmon of Lake Michigan. Now, the Nov. 4 issue of Science News reports that "monitoring of fish responses, provide a near instant gauge of 'changes in industrial or other effluents." INFORMATION ASSET A rapid assessment of such pollution is valuable, according to science news, because it says: "the lack of a feed-back of information on water quality can result in a hazardous situ- ation not being detected until aquatic life is already damag- ed. Or it can result in overpro- tection and money wasted for effluent treatment." The research Science News reports on was conducted at the Virginia Polytechnic Instit- ute and state university's en- vironmental studies center. The lowly BluegiU, a freshwater pan fish whose co-operative nature delights youngsters and unjad- ed older anglers. According to one of the re- searchers, John F. Cairns, uni- versity professor of Zoology at V.P.I., this biological monitor- ing system might be likened to a "sophisticated canary in a mine." Canaries have been used to determine if the air in a mine is fit to breathe. PROBLEMS One of the problems faced by those who would conduct chem- cal, as opposed to biological monitoring of the various efflu- ents in a stream is that in many these pollutants could might not by themsleves be harmful to aquatic life, they could be harmful when acting together. By observing the behavioral and reproductive responses of fish and other aquatic crea- tures, including microorgan- isms, in a waterway, and the discharge from a factory, scien- tists would be able to deter- mine immediately when pollu- tion had reached the danger point. The biological pollution de- tection system Cairns and his colleagues are develop i n g should have a strong appeal to industry, for zero pollution is not necessarily its goal. Differ- ent waters at different times of year vary in their capacity to assimulate effluents and still re- main a decent home for their aquatic residents. Thus, while zero pollution would be the ideal, to achieve it might be virtually impossible or prohibitively expensive.

It was the first time the com munity comprising France, Germany, Italy, Belgium, The Netherlands and Luxembourg, with three additional members, Britain, Denmark and Norway, on Jan. 1 gone on record with a date for these sensitive negotiations. Many hundreds of millions of dollars worth of trade advan- tages are at stake. The United States had initial- ly wanted the negotiations com- pleted before Feb. which is when Britain and the other two candidates expect, to take major steps to align themselves to the somewhat protectionist Common Agricultural Policy of the community. As the world's biggest food importer, Britain represented a major market for United States, Canadian and Austral- ian farmers, especially produc- ers of feed grains and tobacco. The question is to what ex- lent will that market shrink as the result of Britain's mem- bership in the E.E.C. and con- sequent acceptance of its farm rules and common external tariff. Trade with Denmark and Ire- land will also be affected, but only to minor degrees. According to the GATT agree- ment the international trade charter countries that suffer commercial losses because the formation of customs unions or free trade areas, are entitled to compensation. For instance, American gram sales to Britain on Feb. 1 will be subject to a protectionist form of variable import levy which will raise the price of the imported grain to the level in- the E.E.C. Therefore if the price advan- tages the American, Canadian or Australian importers could offer are to be dissipated, the British may then be tempted to buy more of their grains from France or Germany, or grow more themselves. Compensation under GATT rules is generally in the form of reduced trade barriers in other sectors to permit access of an equivalent amount of goods from the country that de- clares itself aggrieved. But and this presents one of the most difficult points in the negotiations the commu- nity does not concede that its variable levies represent a bar rier to trade in GATT terms. The process of determining compensation, then, is highly controversial, subject to fincV ings by the opposing' parties of what the probably loss would be and subject finally to media- tion by GATT officials. Lansky ordered to stand trial MIAMI, Fla. (AP) A fed- eral judge Monday ordered Meyer Lansky, a reputed under- world financial wizard, to stand trial here Jan. 19. 1973, on 1 charges of criminal contempt of court. Judge James L. King of U.S. district court set the date. Lan- sky did not appear in Miami in response to a subpoena deliv- ered to him in Israel in June, 1971, and subsequently was in- dicted by a grand jury. Lansky was wanted for ques- tioning in an income-tax investi- gation but he had gone into self- imposed exile in Israel. He returned to the United Slates last Tuesday after Israel ordered him to leave and he could not find a country that would accept him. FBI agents arrested him when his plane ar- rived in Miami. Lansky also has been indicted on inco'me tax charges, but court sources said he would be tried on those charges later. Lansky entered hospital the day after his arrival for treat- ment of a heart ailment. Court officials said he had been excused from appearing in Lns Vegas, Nov., Wednesday whore he was to have been ar- raigned on federal charges of skimming off profits from gam- bling casinos.
