'Hiis obviously covers the pollution zone. The United States was upset when Canada declared its pollution zone. But It has indicated that it is in agreement with tho 15-point declaration. The other point says could impinge on national sovereignty. Canada is not the only country under the gun for unilateral action concerning territorial limits. Uruguay said Wednesday, for instance, that it claims 200 miles out to sea.

But, while Canada's action in establishing that zone seems to have achieved considerable agreement however reluctant in the case of soiiie countries her action in declaring a 12-mile territorial coastal limit has put her under the gun.

Dr. McMullen, bom in Toronto, attended the University of Alberta and the University of Reading, when something on the seabed is being exploited. This could cover, for instance, an oil well- somewhere more than 12 miles off the toast of Canada. The point provides for consultation in respect to exploration and exploitation of resources.

Ja- micson of Britain had Canada, as well as others, in mind when they criticized unilateral action in advance of international agreements. Pell, Ehode Island Demo- cratic who is the U.S. seabed spokesman, said that when states give !n to internal prre- sures to take unilateral ae'km "they undermine efforts ta de- velop through international co- operation agreed and mutually beneficial arrangements." The Briton was more direct. He said unilateral action is a "slap in the face of interna- tional co-operation." These two speakers and oth- ers, including Secretary-Gener- al U Thant, were calling for early progress in working out the problems of the seabed. The worry is that technology has almost reached the point. where coastal states can movo farther and farther out into the sea to develop resources that should be reserved for all hu- manity. Pell warned of jurislic- tional disputes of the future un- less agreement is reached on territorial limits. Jandeson said claims to a ter- ritorial sea of more than three miles from the coast "are not universally recognized." He described unilateral action to this regard as "something giving rise to doubts and instability, and as a slap in the face for international co-opera- tion."
