Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 18, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta THE MBftlDGE HERALD Wednesday, September Morocco seeks Spanish Sahara May be more of curse than blessing Land claim produces political rift Norway finds oil in huge quantity New York Times Service RABATBN, Morocco Morocco's claim to the square miles of sand and rock that form Spanish Sahara has brought her into conflict with Spain, Algeria and Maure- tania, but it has also produced a rare political climate in Rabat unanimity of opinion on an issue around the throne of King Hassan II Morocco, once a French protectorate, became independent in 1956, and ever since has asserted claims to all Spanish possessions in northwest Africa Opposition forces with little sympathy for Hassan or his domestic policies have rallied to him in his current reasser- tion of Morocco's sovereignty which Moroccans consider a national cause. An ordinary Moroccan, when asked what good a little more territory would do for him, answered "That is not the question. The western Sahara is ours it is part of our territorial integrity and sovereignty." However, an important economic stake exists in the Sahara in the form of a large deposit of phosphates, which Spain only recently began to exploit after an investment of about million, including the construction of a 61-mile- long conveyor belt from the production site at Bou Graa to the sea Current production is less than two million tons a year but the goal is 10 million tons, a quantity that at current prices would be worth at least million and would seriously compete with Moroccan phosphates There are believed to be sizable iron ore and potash deposits, and, in an effort to get Spain to the negotiating table, Morocco has promised to take account of Spanish economic and strategic interests. The long-standing Sahara problem has come to the forefront as a result of Spain's announcement Aug. 21 that she would proceed with a referendum on the territory's future, in conformity with United Nations resolutions up- holding self-determination. The Spanish move has created some embarrassment here since Morocco had voted for these resolutions many here acknowledge this was an error and cannot now reject out of hand the principle of self-determination Inevitably, the suggestion has been raised that the Sahara has been a convenient way of diverting attention from other problems here. The king has rejected this suggestion Even opposition forces say the Sahara problem has priority over all others in Morocco STAVANGER, Norway (Reuter) The Norwegians have once again struck oil in huge quantities but in some quarters the country's new riches are seen more as a curse than a blessing. The voice of dissent warns that oil wealth is going to destroy Norway's traditional way of life The new strike labelled the Stratfjord field, about 80 miles west of the picturesque Sogne Fjord, is likely to produce about 265 million tons of oil and about 55 billion cubic yards of natural gas, says In- dustry Minister Ingvlad Ulveseth Even without Stratfjord, oil production is estimated to reach 44 million tons by 1978, five times the country's own requirements For the "blue-eyed Arabs" as the Norwegians have been nicknamed, oil has become a big social and political issue Concern over oil comes from all political parties and includes farmers, fishermen and many young people worried about the danger of a rapid transformation of Norway's deep traditions. When farm workers can earn three times their old wage working for oil, the drift from the land is understan- dable The president of the local fishermen's association, Jos- tem Sirevaag, describes oil as "Norway's biggest gamble." He worries about the possibility of oil pollution of Don't sleep with dogs OTTAWA (CP) Children who sleep with their faces buried in their pet dog's fur run the risk of developing serious eye disease and even blindness, says Dr Frederick Blodi of the University of Iowa He told an international symposium on eye diseases here that 70 per cent of pet dogs in North America harbor a parasite called flatworm and a child can easily swallow some dirt containing the lar- vae the North Sea The Norwegian Nature Protection Federation says an oil blow-out might spew up to tons of crude into the sea, causing irreparable damage to the fishing in- dustry. Experts say the slogan "oil or fish" is an over- simplification. Stephen Moore, assistant professor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, told an oil conference here that "in general, fish populations do not appear to be threatened as a result of oil spills But he admitted there are "large levels of uncertainty" in this area and many biological phenomena require years of study TURKEYS FRESH LAMB SALE I LEG 0' LAMB Serving Suggestion Mature Hens Frozen Canada Grade A 14-16 Ib.
