Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 22, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 10 THI IE1HMIDGI HEIAID Thunday, Octobtr M, Scientists May Shatter Old Belief On Essential Origins Of New Life By KEN KELLY Canadian Press Science Writ HALIFAX (CP) Scientist may be on the road to shatte ing the long-cherished belie that light and life are essentia to the origins of new life. FLQ ESCORTER Leon Mayrand, former Canadian ambassador to Cuba, would head a limited number of Ca- nadian officials and repre- sentatives accompanying the James Cross kidnappers to Cuba if the kidnappers ac- cept the latest government offer of transport for them in exchange for the British dip- lomat. Fraser Named China Envoy OTTAWA (CP) John M. Fraser, China desk officer in the external affairs department, has been named C a n a d a's charge d'affaires in Peking, it was announced Wednesday. Mr., Fraser, 35, will have charge of the Canadian em- bassy from its opening until the first Canadian ambassador ar- rives in the Chinese capital. Canada and mainland China announced establishment of dip- lomatic relations last week. MORE The two governments agreed to exchange ambassadors within six months. Mr. Fraser, son of the late Blair Fraser, Canadian journal- ist, took part in the Stockholm talks which led to the agree- ment on mutual diplomatic rec- ognition between Ottawa and Peking. A six-man survey team, headed by Mr. Fraser and made up of officials of the ex- ternal affairs and trade depart- ments, leaves here1 Saturday for Peking to work out "practical arrangements" for opening the Canadian mission. "There Is a process In the set that can produce apparently or- ganic particles, strictly chemi- cally and without living organ- isms being reports Dr. R. J. Conover of the Marine Ecology Laboratory at the Bed- ford Institute of Oceanography.. "It's not supposed to happen but apparently it says Dr. L. M. Dickie, director of the laboratory. The evidence was collected during the 11-month voyage of the oceanographic vessel Hud- son which ended here last Fri- day. It is being studied by Dr. Gordon Riley, director of the Dalhousie University oceano- graphic institute, and his asso- ciates. Proof that primary production of organic matter can occur chemically and in darkness would be almost as significant as the test-tube synthesis of life reported in the United States earlier this year. Until now it has been thought that light and green plants were essential to produce new life by the process known as photosyn- thesis. Scientists at Bedford, the Hudson's home base, have ques- tioned this because one of the commonest methods of measur- ing the rate of photosynthesis at times produces results difficult to explain. The problem is that photosyn- thesis seems to occur at times Confiscation Of Racoon Irks Pet Shop Operator GRANDE PRAIEIE (CP) What do you do when the gov eminent confiscates your rac coon after charges against yo about possession of the anima lave been dropped in court? You get hopping mad, that' vhat you do. Pete Zieman, operator of ocal pet shop, imported the rac coon from Florida after check ing all the necessary health reg ulations. It was sold to Duan Hillaby for The racoon went for an un scheduled walk one night am someone complained. Mr. HiU aby, told by fish and wildlife jfficers .it was illegal to keep he racoon, returned it to Mr Pieman. Sir. Zieman, also tolc possession was illegal because ie was not a zoo or fur farm op- erator, said the law was silly ecause his raccoon was bon and raised in captivity and tol< ie officer to "go ahead and harge me." T took this to court to es- tablish that a person who wants raccoon should be able to ave one provided he doesn't go ut into the wild and get it." The raccoon was confiscated y the crown and Mr. Zieman charged under the Fish and 'ildlife Act but the court dis- nissed the charge when the rown could not prove its charge. But the issue of whether the iccoon involved is a wild ani- lal was not resolved so the crown still has the animal. Mr. Zieman said he is allow- d, strangely enough, to import and sell kinkajous or coati mun- is, close relatives of the rac- oon. And, he said, he has written J.

MORRISON F.C. COLBORNE Deputy Minister Minister In darkness, something that by all the accepted explanations of origins of life should not happen, A possible explanation being considered is that there are or- ganisms capable of producing organic matter in either light or darkness. Another Is that a process called dark fixation takes place by bacterial action in the ab- sence of light. Whatever the explanation, the Hudson found that In warmer waters photosynthesis is slower than in cold waters but "dark fixation" is greatly increased. Dr. Dickie said the Implica- tions of the whole study are that the total productivity of the IMS probably is much greater than baa been believed. Up in about five years ago, It had been estimated that the sea was half as productive as the land. Since 70 per cent of the earth's surface b MM, tact meant about equal of organic material from land and sea. "Now It is beginning to took as though the sea is more pro- ductive than the land in Wai."
