Canada controls water supplies OTTAWA (CP) Canada and four other countries hold control over the world's fresh water supply for the future, a world authority on water geography said here. Dr. Thaddee Wilgat, chief of (lie institute of hydrography at the University Marie Curie- Sklodowska in Lublin, Poland, said intelligent policies are cru- cial if the world is to have suf- ficient fresh water by the year 2000. Canada, the Soviet Union. China. Brazil and Zaire 'for- merly Belgian Congo) are the nations which will determine (he world's supply, he said. How they manage water re- sources will lo a large degree determine how future nations will enjoy this basic necessity. Dr. Wilgat mndc Ihe com-; disagree. at the University of Ottawa dur- ing the second of the Vanier Memorial lectures. Canada would be the logical supplier of fresh water for Uniled States, he said. Russia would have to do the same for Europe and parts of Asia. Dr. Wilgat said only three re- gions of the U.S. could guaran- tee adequate supplies of fresh water for the next 25 years. However, he added that Ameri- cans, with an average cubic metres of water per per- son, still are better off than Eu- ropeans, who have only cubic metres each. ARGUMENTS VARY Determining Ihe water sup- plies of the future is a complex problem, he said, and scientists ments in an address in French FUN IN A MUD BATH In a recent photograph token in Waco, Texas, Ellinglon Darden a Florida State Ph.D. works oul in a mud bath with Melanie Srewarl of Dayton Beach, Fla., a former FSU Darden believes in exercising in a val full of squishy mud.

Russia agree on interim rates for American shippers of U.S. grain Export totals climb 1 New York Times I WASHINGTON The UniLed States and the Soviet Union have agreed on a sliding scale of charier rales Moscow will pay American shippers for Ihe transport of grain purchased in the United States. But the complex agreement worked out by Robert J Black- well, assistant secretary of commerce for Maritime fairs, and Nikolai Zuev, presi- dent of Sovfrachl, the Soviet shipping agency, covers only the period Ihrough next Jan. 25.

The rate negotiation became U.S. crops f-1 loo vvel to harvest necessary after world charter] OTTAWA Canadian rates rose significantly follow- ing last October's Soviet-Amer- ican maritime agreement pro- viding that one-third of the grain would be shipped aboard American vessels, one-third on Soviet sliips and one-third on foreign flag freighters. Under the October agree- ment, Moscow was to pay Am- crican shippers, whose opera- Optimisls insist polluted wa- ters can be cleaned and there can be a balance between water resources and needs, while pes- simists contend the technology is not adquale lo overcome the pollution that Is happening and that the quality of water is de- clining.

Ironically, the fields might produce betler-than-average yields If they would dry out enough to bear the weight of heavy farm equipment. "All we need is some sun- shine, three weeks of said Milo Thurston, a soybean farmer in PulasH County, Til. His southern Illinois county has had only nine days of full or partial sunshine In the last six weeks. Other farmers say a hard freeze would do the trick. But anytlung else, they hasten to add, would only make matters worse because the ground gets softer If it freezes at nighl and lhaws during the day. LOSSES MOUNT In Indiana, farm officials esti- mate corn and soybean farmers lose an estimated million for each day those cash crops go unharvesled. In Iowa, most agriculture offi- cials have adopted a wait-and- see attitude. In Minnesota, 18 counties have been declared disaster areas. The farm home adminis- tration has received nearly 000 emergency loan applications from corn and soybean farmers In those counties. Nearly perfect fall harvest T1 rather in Nebraska had led to podictions of record crops of urn, soybeans, grain sorghum and sugar beets. Bat early lasl week, a snowstorm dumped up United Stales, which pays a subsidy to American ship- pers, demanded payment of the world rate plus the 10 per cent. Unable to reach a definition of acceptable world rates, the Soviet and American negotia- tors here agreed that the rate paid by Moscow would be per ton between today and 4 p.m. of Dec. 15: S10.12 between Dec. 16 and 4 p.m. of Dec. 25; and S9.90 between Dec. 20 and 4 p.m. of Jan. 25. The commerce department said that Wednesday's agree- ment would reduce the mari- time administration's subsidies to American shippers by ap- proximately per ton in the first period.
