But be- neath its uninviting surface lies a vast mineral wealth that has led to a bitter dispute with neighboring Morocco, the United States and Spain in the forefront. The Maghreb states of Mo- rocco, Mauritania and Algeria showed little interest in the sun-scorched wasteland until the early 1960s, when Ameri- can prospectors discovered one of the worlds richest phosphate deposits buried near the surface. Morocco, the most vocif- erous claimant to the square-mile colony with a mainly nomadic population of only 70.000, has intensified a diplomatic campaign to estab- lish ownership. Moroccan leaders have said armed conflict may erupt if Spain does not hand over the colony promptly. Until recently Spain was content to sit and watch Mo- rocco. Mauritania and Algeria quarrel among themselves over who should inherit the rich desert. Spain's position seemed fairly secure as long as the Maghreb nations failed to agree. But this year Morocco ap- peared to have gained the up- per hand with Mauritania and Algeria virtually is until summer came. Then Mauritania, a former French colony which pained inde- pendence in 1960, despite Mo- roccan claims to it, restated its claims. The influential Moroccan opposition newspaper L'Opi- nion called the Mauritanian bid ''an imperialist- colonialist conspiracy against Morocco" and ''a new manoeuvre to un- dermine Morocco's territorial integrity by amputating from it, as in I960, another part of its national territory." The outburst was backed by Moroccan leaders and once again Mauritania kept silent. News concerning the colony was declared officially secret in Spain two years ago and when Moroccan Prime Minis- ter Ahmed Osman came to consult Spanish leaders on the future of the colony this month no details of the dis- cussions leaked out. The fact that the talks were held in Madrid, after Spain's ailing Francisco Franco had sent a message to King Has- san from his sickbed, in- dicated that Spain was taking Moroccan warning signals se- riously. Spain has heeded United Nations resolutions calling for a referendum in the colony and offered the inhabitants a large degree of self-determi- nation. Last September Gen. Franco outlined Spain's plans for the future of the territory in a letter sent to the general assembly of the Spanish Sa- hara, the advisory body rep- resenting the tribal and no- madic population. Franco offered a statute un- der which the people would enjoy internal autonomy and be recognized as the owners of the territory's wealth, with Spain retaining responsibility for defence and foreign af- fairs. The Moroccans complain that the largely wandering people would not vote in a referendum, leaving the deci- sive say to residents in the few towns who are mostly of Spanish stock. Morocco, which gained in- dependence from Spain and Franee in 1956, says the Span- ish proposal would set up a "puppet state" under Spanish surveillance. The Saharan phosphate bed is of extreme value because the mineral needs little proc- essing to be converted into high quality fertilizer, much in demand in a hungry world. LACKS OIL RESOURCES Last year Morocco was the largest exporter of phosphates with 17 million tons but the Spaniards shipped 2.3 million tons from the colony and are expected to increase this to 10 million by the end of 1974. Unlike other Arab nations, Morocco lacks vast oil re- sources and political observ- ers say the country is eager to control the price and flow of phosphates to gain influence on the international scene. Spain retains a army in the Sahara, mainly formed by tough foreign le- gionnaires, and observers be- lieved it unlikely that Moroc- can troops would take on such a force, especially in a wide- open terrain unsuited to guer- rilla tactics. But Spain, which is consid- ered a close friend of the Arab nations, is obviously concern- ed about the mounting pressure. The Moroccans im- proved relations with the countries which fought against Israel when King Has- san sent troops to the Golan Heights before the last Middle East war. A sustained Moroccan cam- paign would put Spain in a delicate position with its Arab friends.

Unpaid debts question raised OTTAWA (CP) The issue of U.S. parent companies' re- sponsibility for Canadian sub- sidiaries' unpaid debts was called into question yesterday when the tangled financial af-' fairs of Radio Engineering Products Ltd. came under the scrutiny of the Commons public accounts committee. The government acquired a 99.8 per cent interest in Radio Engineering in July, 1972. At that time, it owed million of unpaid corporation taxes and development grants to the industry and revenue departments. The intent was to build up the business and sell it to recover the money. T. E. Burns, senior assis- tant deputy minister of the in- dustry department, testified yesterday the company con- tinues to suffer operating losses. He refused to predict the chances for the govern- ment of ever recovering its debts. Stanley Schumacher Palliser) wanted to know if consideration had ever been given to making Radio Engineering's parent Nytronics. Inc. of Phoe- nix. Ariz. a party to the development contracts the in- dustry department granted Radio Engineering. It was not considered desir- able to contract with a com- pany outside the country as well as with its Canadian sub- sidiary on a project to be developed in Canada. Mr. Burns replied. In 1965 Radio Engineering got its first grant from the industry department under the defence industry productivity program. A further grant of was given the company in 1966 when it was running short of working capital, although this was repaid. Mr. Burns said. But because of a miistake in the 1966 grant contract, repay- ment of the first grant was not forthcoming when it became due in 1968 because Radio Engineering had mistakenly been offered the alternative of putting the money into further development. Meanwhile, Nytronics ac- quired control in of the Canadian company, and when payment of the was requested in April, 1970, the industry department was told that because its S3.6 million of cash resources had been transferred to Nytronics as a loan, no payment could be made by Radio Engineering. Radio Engineering also owed million in income tax- es from profitable operations in 1968 and 1969. these also were not recoverable because the U.S. parent had transferred Radio Engi- neering's cash assets to the United States. Mr. Burns said that before the government took the com- pany over, the indications were it would go out of business. This would have meant the loss of about 200 manufacturing jobs in New Brunswick and another 100 jobs among engineering staff in Montreal. Mr. Burns said efforts are being made to diversify Radio Engineering's production into commercial lines.
