As far as world body's books show Chiang's fiefdom 110 longer exists CHOU EN-LAI forced Taiwan our of UN Uy TOM TIEDE UNITED NATIONS It has been aji ugly diplomatic year (or the Republic of (Na- tionalist) China. Last October the government was suddenly, that is to say rudely, bounced from a quarter-century of UN membership. Short while later, two Taiwan newspaper corres- pondents were likewise banish- ed from the rolls of the wovld body. One by one the UN cut away other Nationalist affilia- tions position in the World Health Organisation, its seal on the International Atomic En- ergy group. Then, most recent- ly, the word was leaked, splashed, th.it the UN has de- cided lo drop all Taiwan "ref- erence, note or information" from its records and publica- tions. And now, good golly, as if the wound isn't deep enough, sourc- es say the UN may be getting set to apply an official coup lace faster when heat is ap- >lied, and slow down when heat s drained away. This is Hie reason why the freezing of foods stops thedr decay. mows By keeping the lobsters warm all year round, the various chemical reactions thr.t are part of metabolism proceed more swiftly and the animal grows faster. Wa rm-blooded anim als are wt nf Ceded this way because .hey have heat-conserving me- chanisms that keep Iheir inter- nal temperature stable despite extremes in air or water temp- eratures. The researchers said they were able lo achieve a further reduction in Ihe growing time by screening more thnn. lobster larvae to find 13 that, for some unknown reason, grew at least 50 per cent faster than normal. These 13 were then bred, us- ing techniques developed at hatchery, and raised in tha warm water tanks. "The results of these setec- I 1 he resca rchcrs said, 'suggest it may be possible to produce lobsters of marketable size (one pound! in about 18 months." Sullivan said the hatchery Is expecting federal sea grant money to enlarge tanks and per- mit more precise control over water temperature lo determine the optimum for growth. In the meantime, he said, Dr. Robert Shleser of the Institute for Tilarine Resources at the University of California at Da- vis ia working on the economic aspects of lobster farming to determine whether it can be feasible on a large scale.
