Science proving pollution claims VANCOUVER (CP) Only one thing has been missing LI the prophecies of ecological scientific evidence, says a Simon Fraser University professor. With an grant from the National Research Council, Dai Jones, other scientists and di- vers have been collecting evi- dence, comparing the sewage- polluted waters of Burrard Inlet in Vancouver with the cleaner waters of the cast and west coasts of Vancouver Tsiand. They are also studying Cobb Seamount. a submersed foot mountain 250 miles south- west of Victoria, which rises to within 180 feet of the surface. Prof. Jones said preliminary POLARIZED LENSES POLARIZED LENSES com- pletely eliminate annoying glare from waler high- ways and beac'ies.

'OPTICAL PRESCRIPTION CO. indications are that there has not been widespread deteriora- tion of Bun-aid Inlet, which is the city's harbor. Pollution in Vancouver coastal waters is probably about the same as that of the Thames River 100 years ago, he said, and he hopes Canadians will learn from England's experi- ence. Before emigrating to Candaa, Prof. Jones spent six years working on ecology problems in the North Sea. In one section he studied, around (he Forth estuary, fish- eries declined, the water was only gocd for dumping, and there was danger from (o.vic plankton, eaten by mussels, clams and scallops and In turn by humans. He said he is worried that continued dumping of raw sew- age might result in a similar buildup of toxic plankton around Vancouver. Although pollution from (he land enriches the food supply for marine animals, an imbal- ance occurs because only some species are nourished by the added food source, said Prof. Jones. Eventually even these fish become choked and die of pollution and the influence spreads farther out to sea. To monitor water qualtiy, the SFU team dives down to the sea-bottom with a six-foot-high metal tower to which are bolted bottles that collect the material suspended in the water. The contents are later analysed in a laboratory at SFU. On the Cohb Seamount area they found a few tropical spec- ies in a current of warm water. The fish out there are com- pletely said Prof. Jones.

Canada Postes Post Canada Shooting has turned into idle banter By TEHENCE SMITH New York Times Service ISMAILIA, Israeli occupied Sinai In the dark, moonless nighl, the voices carried easily over the still waters ol the canal. "Are you sleeping, Abra- ham" a voice called in Eng- lish from the Egyptian bank. "No, just dreaming, came the answer from the Is- raeli side. "Where is Illana" the Egyp- lian voice continued. "I didn't see her today. You know how t miss her." "She went south the Israeli soldier replied. "She'll be back, Ali." This exchange and others like it have become part ol the nightly routine in recent months along Israel's most placid cease- fire line: (he Suez Canal. Fight- ing the boredom that alllicts them both, the Israeli and Egyp- tian soldiers manning the posi- tions along the clogged and un- used canal fill the still night with idle conversation. The tenor 01 their talk has changed in recent months, ac- cording to senior officers here, and the change reflects the more relaxed atmosphere that has prevailed along the canal since July, when several thous- and Soviet advisers and missile technicians were with drawn [rom the Egyptian bank. "The rancor has drained out ol the a region- al commander explained. "Be- fore they used to curse one an- other and sometimes the argu- ments Jed to shooting. Now, it's small talk about their girl- friends and their homes. The tension is gone." In some cases, the soldiers have come to know each other well. The Israeli called Abra- ham (that is not his real name, but the name he uses with the Egyptian, who is probably not named Ali, either) told a visitor the other day that he has gradually learned a lot about All's family and life. "He says he has eight broth- ers and sisters, which I be- the soldier said, "and two girlfriends, one in Cairo, one in Alexandria, which I don't believe." Iliana, the Israeli explained, is the name the Egyptian has given to an Israeli woman sol- dier who visits the outpost fre- quently to give the bored sol- diers instruction in leathercraft. She is a trim young woman, he said, and has caught the eye of Egyptian soldiers along the length of the canal. POLITICS The two men sometimes talk politics during the quiet nights, but seldom seriously. Although there has been no fighting along the canal since the American sponsored cease- fire went into effect on Aug. 7, 1970, the Egyptians have been waging a propaganda war across the waterway in recent months. Using huge loudspeakers across from the Israeli strong- points, they have been broad- casting polemical messages in Hebrew designed to weaken Is- rael imorale. Most of the messages dwell on such issues as the conflict between the dark skinned ori- ental Jews and the lighter- skinned Ashkenazi, or European Jews, and on the harsh weather in the Sinai Peninsula. Recently, however, the broad- casts have become more soph- isticated. Tapes Jiave been play- ed that purport to be the voices of some of the 10 Israeli pilots and airmen who have been held, in Egypt since before the cease- fire. The psychological warfare effort seems to be having little or no effect on the Israelis. Most seem to regard the clum- sily worded messages BJ comic rather than persuasive mild form of entertainment In a spot where amusement Is scarce.
