Avoid Birds Advises Pilot EDMONTON CP) Birds, like bad weather, should be avoided whenever possible, Canada's business pilots were told by Hart Finlay, of the fed- eral transport department. "We believe it makes no more sense to descend or as- cend through a very dense cur- tain of migrating geese than it does to fly through the most severe turbulence in a thunder- Mr. Finlay told the delegates of the ninth annual Canadian Business Aircraft As- sociation convention. The best way to avoid the problem, he said, is to design airports which will not attract birds.

Gary Marfiis Dispensing Optician 307 St. S. 327-7152 Spray Chemical On Oil Slick By BILL MOFFATT Canadian Press Correspondent SUMMERSIDE, PJE.I. (CP) Two sliips and a spray plane were prepared today to start spreading a dispersant chemical on a large oil slick off the north- western lip of Prince Edward Island. The chemical, which trans- port department officials say will break the bunker C oil down to one part per million parts of water in 24 hours, was to be sprayed by an Avenger aircraft and spread by two Ca- nadian-Coast Guard ships. Developed by a United States oil company, the chemical has the trade name Corexit-866G. A transport department spokesman said tests with the chemical had indicated it is non-toxic to such marine life as lobsters. There was no indication when he use of the chemical would begin on the slick, which has grown steadily since the barge Irving Whale sank 35 miles lorthwest of North Cape, P.E.I., early Monday. The slick, being blown back to sea by favorable west winds, is no immediate threat to shore areas, officials said. The Avenger dropped an ex- lerimental load of chemicals on he slick Friday. Meanwhile; Saint John, N.B., ndustrialist K. C. Irving, whose nterests owned the Irving Vtele, declined comment today a statement Friday by Transport Minister Don Jamie' on that there are strong indica- ions the Irving Oil Co. Ltd. may be legally responsible for cleaning up the oil pollution. Frank Weston, a transport de- partment superintendent from Dartmouth, N.S., said the slick covers an estimated 250 square miles, but it contains large sec- tions of open water. He said the spill was a greater potential danger to the economy of the area than it was in Nova Scotia's Chedabucto Bay where the tanker Arrow sank last February. Mr. Weston said he based this opinion on the fact that the spill was a po- tential threat to such key P.E.I, economic elements as the Mal- peque Bay oyster fishery, the Irish moss industry, the lobster fishiang, and tourist beaches about 60 miles south of the wreck. Gas Probe Resumes CALGARY (CP) Oil Ltd. has resumed explora- ory drilling near its 1966 gas iscovery at Locktai, England.

Both men were appearing be- fore the joint parliamentary committee on the constitution which is holding public hearings in Winnipeg. Professor Donnelly said the federal and provincial govern- ments should decide now that a new constitution should be drawn up. The job of drafting the new document should be given to experts and a one-year deadline set for implementation. SHOULD DECIDE ON BNA The draft constitution could be examined and a decision reached on whether to accept it or retain the British North America Act. Prof. Donnelly said he prefers a new aproach. The BNA Act ivas a "poor excuse for a consti- tution." It was difficult even to amend. Mr. Gonick, professor of polit- cal science at the University of Manitoba, said the constitu- tional conferences are "one big con-game." The constitution being changed by the Trudeau govern- ment as it was talking of pulling out of shared-cost programs.
