Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 21, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Economics thaw political ice between Scandinavia, east bloc __________________Thurwfay, 31, )V72 THI LITHMIDOI HttMD 87 By TAMES FEHON New York Times Service WARSAW When Poland's current leaders came to power nearly two years ago they said ihat whatever else needed chang- ing at home, Poland's foreign policy would remain unchanged. In fact, it lias changed. Emphasis on technological progress at home brought de- mands for economic assistance from abroad, wliich, in turn, led to a more flexible and prag- matic diplomatic policy. Nor where has this been move ap- parent than in Poland's ties with Scandinavia. The Polish foreign minister, Stefan Olszowski, said in a speech this month that "our re- lations with (he Scandinavian countries, our neighbors across the Baltic, have entered a per- iod of accelerated development." Talks with government offi- cials and diplomats in Warsaw, Helsinki and Copenhagen indi- cate that the developing rela- tionships are motivated largely by economic needs, with the ini- tiative mostly on the Commu- nist side. A PROBLEM But East Germany remains a problem. Two weeks ago, Fin- land announced agreement with East Germany on diplomatic relations. The move annoyed some northern neighbors. "We had hoped to move in harmony on the issue of relations with Easl a Danish offi- cial said. "We felt that we should wait until the West Ger- mans and East Germans had i settled their own treaty.'' i The west's non-recognition of Easl Germany has been a major factor in delaying what is seen on both hides ac a na- tural exciiar.-ga between Scandi- navia and Eastern Europe. In some cases, relations have been maintained in active but occas- ionally unofficial ways. A draft convention initiated by Sweden on Hie subject of oil spillage in the Baltic Sea has been completed but remains un- ralified. The Communist states refuse to initial it on Uie "ex- pert" level and the Scandinav- ians prefer to wait for the "political or recogni- tion of East Germany. Baltic nations also are con- ducting talks on division of the continental shelf and by exten- sion the potential resources of the seabed. This, said a Polish official, "must be concluded in a convention the exchange of maps would not be enough." Thus, again, any agreement must await East German rec- ognition. SPECIAL TIKS The special relationships be- gan, in a sense, with the develop- ment of tourism, especially by Yugoslavia, Rumania and Bul- garia. Visa requirements were eased and the Scandinavians v.ere among the first to respond. A Rumanian said: "They raced {or the warm waters o( the Black Ssa. Every summer, they are the first in and the last out, swimming when it is too cold for anyone else." It is generally easiest for a Scandinavian to travel to an Eastern European counti-y. Trade has effectively linked the two regions. The Hungarians include Sweden among the half- dozen Western nations with which Hungary has sharply in- creased trade in the last year. However, Eastern Europe's trade links with Scandinavia may he affected deeply by erendums scheduled soon in Norway and Denmark on entry into the European Economic Community. The Communist governments would be delighted to see neither nation join. The Poles, meanwhile, have become the most active East- ern bloc slate in developing links with Scandinavia. Reform- minded leaders under Edward Gierek, the Communist party leader, are urging a vast mod- program. GRIM is maintained in Bslfast's predominantly Roman Catholic Nsw Lodge district by a British tracper in tense Northern Ireland. DDT ban 'mistake' EDMONTON (CP) It was a mistake for Canada and the United States to ban the use of DDT, says Dr. Fred Wolfe, a biochemist at the University of Alberta. The ban resulted from "spu- rious evidence" presented lo government decision-makers, he said in an interview. Dr. Wolfe is not convinced that DDT affects reproduction in certain species of birds and says that earlier research suf- fers from "statistical inconsis- tencies." In Japan, quail were fed 90 parts per million of DDT in their food-, he said, and tliere was no difference in the num- ber of eggs laid or in the strength of the eggs. The ban will prove wrong be- cause of harmful effects on ag- riculture and because of the possibility that countries trou- bled by malaria-bearing mos- quitoes might decide to folloM' the U.S.-Canada example, said Dr. Wolfe. "There are so many other factors affecting reproduction that it is wrong to point a finger at DDT." The letlikidge Herald think PART IV PICTURE QUIZ 5 POINTS N'tune the sailing contest.
