Despite the BNA Act, the Ca- nadian wildlife service has gradually increased its activity and its expertise relative to other wildlife species. But until now, a wildlife serv- ice biologist said in an inter- view, federal legislation dealing with migratory birds has been the wildlife service's only legiti- mate reason for being. PIIOVIDE BASE The proposed act would pro- vide a legislative base from which the wildlife service can extend its programs to include other species, as well as feder- al-provincial arrangements on land use and the acquisition of 'and for wildlife conservation areas.

But the biggest problem of all may be time John Tene', wildlife service director, said in an interview that the wildlife legislation could be Hint which will link Canada to the provisions ot tlie rare and endangered wildlife convention due fm signing at the U.N. meeting. The conference is in June, meaning that the government will have to table Uie legislation and get it through both the House and the Senate before then. At present the bill is still being drafted into legal lan- guage by the justice depart- ment. Only countries having na- tional" laws relating to rare and endangered species will be al- lowed to sign the convention, which relies on national laws to prohibit the importation or ex- portation of rare or endangered animals, their skins, or any part of them. USE RED BOOK For the purposes of tlie cor vention, and the wildlife act, a rare and endangered animal is any animal listed in the Rec Book published by the Interna- tional Union for the Conserva- tion of Nature. Officials in the wildlife serv- ice generally agree that at least 60 Canadian species are endan- gered. K the wildlife act is to be used as enabling legislation for the Stockholm convention, it will have to be matched by provin- cial legislation, Dr. Tener says. Ontario alreaay has an aidan- t-red wildlife act. But other, existing legislation could be used to control the trade in rare and endangered animals. Endangered animals could be added to a list of goods pro- hilwif-i _om entering Canada, SJM the Game Export Act could amended to include not only but live animals. The provinces could then pass their own legislation concerning the transport of endangered ani- mals. The trade department could also prohibit the export from Canada of endangered animals of their skins.

MOSCOW (AP) President Anwar Sadat of Egypt begins talks with Soviet officials in the Kremlin today on the new U.S. proposal for an interim Middle East settlement. Sadat also is believed to be seeking more military hardware from the Russians lo counter the possibility that the Unilcd States may resume arms ship- ments to Israel. The Egyptian president ar- rived in Moscow Monday for in- tensive discussion with the Kremlin leadership hut delayed the talks until today. Egypt's official Middle East news agency said Sadat post- poned his first session with Communist party chief Leonid Brezhnev, President Nikolai Podgorny and Premier Alexei Kosygin lo discuss the U.S. plan with his foreign minister Mah- moud Riad.

Tlie six-point proposal put forward by Rogers last week is aimed at spurring an agreement lo reopen the Suez canal, but Rogers emphasized that he considers it a step toward an overall settlement between Israel and the has strong 'reservations about an interim agreement, fearing such a temporary solution might turn into a permanent situation that would leave the basic Arab-Israeli conflict uivesolved.

Canadian and Japanese scientists also have expressed doubt about the wisdom of setting off a five-megaton hydrogen bomb underground at Amchitka as the AEC wants to do. An earthquake and a release of radioactivity into the ocean have been cited as possible results of the proposed explosion. Tlie test now is awaiting ap proval by President Nixon. blc military sources in Tel Aviv reported that two MiO-23s, the Soviet Union's most-advanced warplanes, made their opera- tional dehut in the Middle East theatre Sunday with a brief flight near the southwest Israeli coast.

The MiG-23 is reported lo have speed and altitude superi- ority over any operational war- plane in the Western arsenal. Its maximum speed is esti- mated by Western military ex- perts as 3.2 times the speed of miles an its top altitude between and feet. Inserted liy f he Dlmnifc Committee WiTH TRUE SAVINGS AT.
