Ducks Linger On Prairies WINNIPEG (CP) Ducks Unlimited (Canada) reports there have been isolated south- ward migrations but substantial numbers of ducks continue to linger on the Prairies. "Fall populations have been and are at least as outstanding as last the conservation organization reports in a survey completed Oct. 16. "Although most of the blue- winged teal, green wings and widgeon have gone, a surpris- ing number of shovelers are etill here, particularly in Sas- katchewan. Pintails which were present in large numbers on the Prai- ries all fall now are beginning to thin out. Mallards seem to be field feeding on the stubble everywhere and a prolonged freeze, which forces them into the last of the open water, should see some spectacular concentrations. "The .final exodus, if precip- itated by a quick hard freeze, should be dramatic." SOOTH MOVEMENT A considerable southward movement took place in the Ed- monton area and western Al- berta after a cold snap froze the smaller ponds, but the south remains open and ducks and geese remain in good numbers. Before the freeze, the Alberta provincial manager reported the greatest number of ducks, particularly mallards, he had ever seen in the area east of Edmonton. In British Columbia, interior drought forced an abnormally early migration to coastal marshes. Canada Geese which concentrated early in the Cres- ton flat marshes have mostly moved on but duck numbers have increased.

Phone 327-4475 Oil Spills Danger Second To Needs WASHINGTON (AP) The U.S. interior department, in of- fering to lease offshore acres for petroleum develop- ment, has decided the environ- mental dangers Of oil spills are outweighed by the need for oil and gas. The department says relying heavily on tighter regu- lations and tougher enforcement to prevent spills from drilling and production operations on the 1Z7 tracts of submerged land off the coast of Louisiana. Leases on those tracts are to be sold to the highest bonus-bid- ders next Dec. 15 in New Orle- ans, in a sealed-bid auction sus- pended since Feb. 20, 1969, be- cause of a threat of damaging spills. Under the new regulations, no structures may be built on the new tracts without approval of the director of the U.S. ecolog- ical survey who, presumably, would reconcile the oil compa- nies' plans with the interests of commercial fishermen in the area. Despite its precautions, not even the interior department claims petroleum development in those 75 per BUYRITE MEN'S WEAR WEEK- END R--- _B Big Men's Melton Pile Lined CAR COATS With zipper front, slash pocketj, brown only.

The interior department re- ported Oct. 16 to the president's council on environmental qua! ity: "Immediate short-term et feels of oil pollution ma; seriously damage the marine bi ological community in the area where the pollution occurs. The effects of a long-term pollu lion are not clearly understood THROUGH CHAIN "In addition to a visible taint ing of fishery products, hydro- carbons could be passed along through the marine food chain from the lower forms of organ- isms to those, harvested for human consumption. "The effect of such oil inges turn on human health is no fully known." But the d e p a r t m e n t also argued its new regulations and enforcement "appear to be suf h'cienfly effective to render seri o-js oil pollution only minor possibility, not such possibility as should deter needed production of oil and ,na tura gas with a low sulphur con- tent." The report recommended ths "leasing and development (in the Gulf of Mexico) should con tinue if the United States is b avert a major national energy crisis and make progress to- ward retarding air pollution." Considering the air quality ad vantages of natural gas an< low-sulphur oil, the report sait that, "over-all, the environmen- tal impact on the nation is ex- pected to be beneficial." Newspaper Ads Draw Attention TORONTO (CP) Canadians are paying less attention to tele- vision commercials and more to newspaper and magazine adver- tisements, according to an ana- lyst of advertising readership in Canada and the United States. Oscar B. Lubow, president ol Daniel Starch Staff Inc., speak- ing to the Magazine Advertising Bureau of Canada, said noting of TV commercials was down about 100 per cent from the early 1960s. "There is a widely-held belief that TV has captive audience qualities. That day is over. That's an old hang-up." Mr. Lubow said noting of magazine and newspaper adver- tisements was up about 100 per cent. "Good print ads maintain their levels of interest .after dozens and dorais. .of repeti- tions. Bad ads do not improve with age. The same seems to apply to commercials." Beef consumption in Canada is expected to rise by at least 20 pounds per person per year, by 1980. decided to discontinue the com- pilation of figures.
