No real gloom in Britain LONDON (CP) Gloom, despondency, despair, depression, fright, dismay and bewilderment are among a vast armory of adjectives being arrayed here to describe the mood of Britain in the days before the October 10 general election. These stark descriptions are blazoned across the front pages and sprinkled through the editorials of national new- spapers. They pour forth in the speeches of opposition politicians, are reeled off with relish by many broadcasters and even find their way into the reports of some inter- national news agencies. But where do you find this doomsday atmosphere, asked one American visitor. she added, "it sounds like you should be able to take a picture of it if its as bad as they say." If the American girl had just passed a newsstand, she would have seen the mass- circulation Daily Mirror with its entire front page devoted to the single stark headline: "Oct. 10: Your life in your hands.'' And if she saw the main edi- torial of the usually- unflappable Times yesterday, she would have read in the opening paragraph: "There has been no election since the war which has been held in such a mood of public uncer- tainty and depression." These newspapers and others, as well as the politicians and broadcasters who echo their sentiments, have, of course no intention of misleading the public or creating a false impression of pre-election Britain. Nevertheless, there is no despondency in the streets, the shops, the pubs or the betting offices. At the moment, the general at- mosphere seems to be one of boredom, but even that is probably a fleeting sensation. Elections in Britain tend to become something like a sporting event and nobody loves sport more than Britons. To find the gloom and uncer- tainty, it seems, you have to talk to such people as stock- brokers, leading businessmen, bankers, economists and the politicians themselves. The "guvnor" of your local pub. the neighborhood green grocer or the high street butcher all would acknowledge they have serious worries about inflation, the dangers of reces- sion and the possibility of a tighter credit squeeze and un- employment. Their concern seems greater than similar worries in. say. North America, simp- ly because the problems of ris- ing prices and business stagnation are more severe here. But they would laugh you out of their shops at the suggestion that they are steeped in gloom and despair or irreversibly headed down the road to Armageddon. There simply are no overt signs of a general public pan- ic. Most Britons have been hearing warnings of im- pending economic disasters all their lives yet find their standard of living has improv- ed nonetheless. All political pronouncements on the economy now seem to be greeted with a good deal of skepticism. For the professional classes and the politicians, however, the concern and the pessimism is real. Britain is faced with a balance-of- payments deficit which this year is expected to reach a record-shattering level. On top of that, inflation is running at more than 17 per cent a year and may even top 20 per cent before the year is out. Business investment in new plant and equipment is actually falling. Wage increases have reached a staggering annual average of 20 per cent for the first time in British history and several major businesses have recent- ly collapsed. But. so far, this has had lit- tle effect on the general quali- ty of life in Britain. Its measured, civilized pace con- tinues as it has for centuries and the country remains one of the most elegant and enriching places to live in the world. i Its problems are unques- tionably mammoth but perhaps the absence of gloom among the general public springs from a kind of certain- ty that British ingenuity has never failed it in the past and is unlikelv to do so now. Oil spills no disaster EDMONTON (CP) Con- trary to popular belief, oil spills are not a disaster for soils, two soil scientists at the University of Alberta say. Dr. W. B. McGill. of the soil science department, said hydrocarbons are commonly found in soil and there are organisms in the ground which are capable of breaking them down. "I don't know where the horrendous ideas people have came from, but there seems to be a feeling as soon as oil touches soil, that's it; it can never be reclaimed.'' he said. Dr. McGill. with Dr. Marvin Nybcrg, also of the department, were speaking about their studies into oil spills at a meeting of the Ed- monton section of the Petroleum Society of the Canadian Institute of Mining and Metallurgy. Dr. McGill said oil does change the oxidization of the soil, adds salts and sulphides, changes some soil organisms and produces a nutrient defi- ciency. But these are problems that can be resolved. "There are very few insolu- ble soil problems and oil spills are just one example of what can said. CLEANUP DOES DAMAGE Dr. Nyborg said there is "probably as much damage to the environment by the cleanup techniques as by the spill itself." Dr. McGill said the major problem at the site of any land-based oil spill was drainage. If the site is drained, oxygen will get at the soil allowing organisms to work. Farm workers plight stressed OTTAWA (CP) Man- power Minister Robert Andras called on the provinces today to bring farm workers under the protection of labdr standards legisla- tion. He said farm workers should enjoy the same minimum wage, hours of work and other protections guaranteed to workers in other industries. In a prepared statement, the minister expressed hope that publicity about the plight of migrant farm workers in southwestern Ontario will convince farm workers across Canada "that they don't have to put up with poor pay, poor working conditions and poor accommodations." Only Newfoundland includes farming occupations under provincial labor standards Saw. Other provinces, including Ontario with an estimated 100.000 farm workers, do not allow the formation of farm unions and deny the workers legal protection on jobs, pay and working conditions Mr. Andras. whose depart- ment issued a report last year denouncing "intolerable and inhumane" conditions among migrant farm workers in On- tario, said he welcomed re- cent published statements that conditions on many farms have not improved. He said migrant workers who are being ill-treated are those who bypassed man- power centres and farm labor pools to make private job arrangements with farmers. Those who applied through federal agencies, including about 6.000 migrant workers from other countries, "are at least protected to the extent that they are assured the min- imum wage or better, inspected living accommoda- tion and reasonable working conditions." "1 have urged and I will con- tinue to urge the provinces to amend their legislation so that farm workers can enjoy the protection and benefits now shared by workers in other in- dustrial sectors." Mr. Andras said. He said Manpower offices expect lo refer some 90.000 workers to temporary jobs during the current harvest. They wiil not be exploited, he said, "but we have no control in cases where employers do not use our services and make their own private arrangements with the workers. He said the establishment of local agricultural manpower boards under the Canada farm labor pool system has helped to improve conditions for farm workers. "The great majority" of farmers are good employers, he said. is a smaH minori- ty who are the cause of the difficulties But, he added, too often crews hurriedly build dikes to contain the oil which permits it to soak into the ground, making it more difficult for the soil to restore itself. By permitting the oil to spread a little after the initial cleanup is completed, there is a better chance for natural organisms to work. Dr. McGill said adding fer- tilizer after a cleanup speeds recovery and the addition of nutrients is the most effective means of restoration after an area is drained. He said he was opposed to the use of detergents in oil spill situations because "I think they're a hazard and don't do any good anyway." Dr. Nyborg said their studies indicated that if the soil is drained of oil and enough nutrients are added that healthy plant growth is possible almost immediately. "Eighty to 90 per cent of the oil decomposed in four or five months when it was treated in some of the spills." Most of the scientific work on oil spills so far has concen- trated on the damage rather than on restoration, Dr. Nyborg said. Welfare cost talks requested VERNON, B.C. (CP) The 600 delegates attending the an- nual convention of the Union of British Columbia Municipalities voted almost unanimously Thursday to seek a meeting with Premier Dave Barrett and Human Resources Minister Norm Levi to discuss welfare costs. The UBCM also voted to ob- ject to having municipalities pay 10 per cent of the million miscalculation in the human resources department budget. Alderman Jack Gilmore of Coquitlam, brother of Educa- tion Minister Eileen Dailly, was one of the three dis- senting delegates. He called criticism of the government for the mis- calculation premature. Municipalities have been in- formed that their assessment for welfare costs has been increased to per capita from 85 cents. Municipalities pay 10 per cent of welfare costs, the provincial govern- ment pays 40 per cent and the federal government pays 50 per cent. Premier Barrett has said the municipalities will have to pay their share of the added expenses caused by what he calls an error in budgeting. Alderman Gilmore said municipalities complaining about high assessments for welfare should remember that under the Social Credit government they were assess- ed 20 per cent of welfare costs or per capita. Municipalities should also remember that welfare recipients are affected by inflation, he added. Municipal Affairs Minister James Lorimer said he ex- pects to discuss the overspending on welfare with Premier Barrett Monday. He wouldn't comment further on the miscalculation, saying that he only knows what he reads in the newspapers and they aren't always correct. Several municipalities have said they will not pay their share. Mayor Ross Postill of Coldstream, Mayor Frank Laird of Penticton, Mayor Stuart Fleming of Vernon and Mayor E. P. W. North of Harrison Hot Springs said their municipalities will not pay. South Africa faces reality By ROD CURRIE The Canadian Press The amazing grace with which white-ruled South Africa has so far accepted the emerging black government in neighboring Mozambique indicates the power of head over heart in matters of economics. In a move that appears far- sighted. Prime Minister John Vorster has shown some warmth towards Frelimo, once branded a bunch of murdering terrorists, as Frelimo prepares to take over the former Portuguese colony on South Africa's northeastern border. Even more. South Africa has rather pointedly hinted to white-dominated Rhodesia that it. too. might be wise to adopt a more amenable stance as black-majority rule spreads relentlessly down the African continent. But the situation is more difficult for does not have the economic leverage South Africa can use in balancing its relationship with Frelirno. which takes over complete power next -June. Kqually remarkable in the new equation thai developed when Portugal agreed to hand wer Mozambique to Use Na- tionalists is ihe altitude of KrcJiiw leaders. AHhough there remains enormous pressure within Frelimo to break completely with Uieir natural while enemies in Smrtb Africa and Rhodesia, in- IJuenfial leaders such as Joa- quim Chisssno take a lar more oonciiiafory line. And wilfa good reason. Mozambique's tounsJ in- dustry relies inescapably on Swjlh AJricans; ils ports han- dle goods Jor Soulh Africa's interior and 1-W.OOO Mozambi- que mm are migrant workers an South African mines. Mow Mozambique likely will extract greater fees for its ports and migrant labor but observers suggest the South African government will find this a fair price for peace and stability on its border. Without friendly relations. Mozambique would no doubt soon become a haven for anti- white terrorists striking into South Africa.
