DIAL 8-0000 m w. fliin, ALTON Fish Have Big Role in Our World Position, Deserve Status ny OAVNOR NBA food and Markets Kdltor NEW YORK. -- (NF.A) Many people Ihlnk of fish ns something we eat more of during Lent. Royal Toner, president of the National Fisheries Institute, thinks .if II also ns a vital factor In our national economy nnd In our world position today. The Fisheries Institute includes the lending American , fishermen, primary processors, canners, sellers, smokers, froe/ers, distributors and boat owners, a $2 billion industry that employes more thnn 5S(J,000 men nnd women. "Fish and shell fish, being (op sources of protein, play a vital role In International tensions," he explained. "For example. Red China Is protein starved. The Chinese, not being seafaring people, have failed to develop tho sources of protein In her coastal waters. Except off Siberia, Russia has very little senronst nnd lhat Is fro/.en nine months of the year. She Is therefore short of protein food for her millions." There has never been a world wnr when nil the countries involved hnd enough protein for their people, Toner pointed out. "The importance of fish to our national economy and to International ponce Is so towering that, it should be rerogni/ed with full cabinet status." Toner, rnnssive, but soft-spoken, nearly 40 years In the oyster growing business, fears our enemies rniiy discover the remaining fishing areas in the world before we do. While he ate a lunch of oysters on the hnlf shell, followed by the first shad of the season from Georgia waters, he explained that fishing areas are controlled by international treaties. Tho first country to discover a fishing ground is the one that gets the host terms in treaties. "Take a look at some of the world's fishing areas today," he continued. "Rights in the Bering Sen area belong to Canarta, the United Slates and Russia, all based on historical reference to fishing experience. Rights in the Grand Hanks area under present inter- national 'treaties are restricted to the British, French, Spanish and Americans, based on discovery priority. "The fishing areas north of the main Island of Japan were originally owned by Russia, hut In recent decades leased to Japan by Russia. Since World War It, Russia has refused to renew those leased rights. "On the western shore of South America, particularly off Chile, lies one of the richest fishing areas In the world. In the past 10 years frec/.lng plants have been installed there nnd fro/en fish has been exported to the U.S., competing with our fish processed by higher paid labor." He called attention to Alaska. "All its gold and minerals together," he said, "do not compare with the wealth the Alaskan fish- Ing Industry has brought to this country."' The future of fishing rights In oceans of the world is more Im portant than land rights, accord ing to Toner, who added: "as com pared with what remains to be explored in the sea, land areas offer little hope of wealth to be gained by exploration." The last frontier for the explorer is the sea, in his judgment. If we can establish rights to new NEWS WASHER HISTORY!

Add to our national wealth at a time when threat of war puts an increasing strain on our national economy. "Certainly, with billions now being spent for defense, more money should be allocated to the Fish and Wild Life Service of the Department of the Interior. We must begin to stockpile new fishing areas just as we arc stockpiling steel, uranium, and other vital materials," he said. 'Energy Capsule' Runs Electronic Wrist Watch By NBA Service CHICAGO - (NBA) - Within a few years, you'll be able to carry a wrist watch that is Infinitely more accurate than present mod els and never needs winding. It's alf those things—except when the battery runs down. The revolutionary timepiece is an electronic wrist watch, which has a tiny battery and tiny elec trie motor where today's watches have their springs. The battery —which the manufacturer calls an "energy capsule" — is about the size of a peanut. They estimate that one battery will last about a year. A replace ment will cost somewhere unclei 25 cents, and it will probably be a 25-cent job for the jeweler to put the new one in. Although the svatch is not ye on the market, it will be an ex pensive mechanism when it doc? become available. There are nc estimates of price yet, but high costs of material — coupled will existing stocks of conventiona watches which can't, be made ob solete overnight — svill make th price high. Eventually, however, the elec Ironic - watch will probably be cheaper than the ordinary watcl of today. That's because the mech anism is simpler, with complete elimination of the mainspring anc winding apparatus. But "eventu ally" may be 10 years off. The makers have been working in the project since before the war 'hey finally succeeded in con tructing a model that performs, in miniature, the same function a he power plant of a diesel electri ocomotive. Yet it consumes so lit tie power that 10,000,000 of then- could be operated from the powe consumed by one 100-watt iigh bulb. They say that the same tin mechanism could be built into voman's watch, although the lab oratory model is man-sized. The Soil Conservation Service o he U. S. Department of Agricu ure estimates that if the bcs combinations of known practice were put to use on all farms in th United States, farm productio could be increased as much as 7 percent. tor's Engine Remains Deep, Dark Secret to Most Ladies By RICHARD KLEINER NBA Staff Ctrespondent NEW YORK, -(NKAI- » yo" now a woman who understands hat makes an automobile run. ou arc acquainted with a rare haracter indeed. Husbands and ther males will be delighted to earn thai a nationwide survey hows most women haven't the fog- lest idea how come cars move. The extent of the average female's ignorantr? regarding things utomotive is frightful. The survey ook up many of the items under ic hood and asked what each was esigned to do. These are the items, and some f the answers: ...iglne as a whole. One Phila- lelphia lady gave the questioner a jlank look and said, "Don't ask me abi at it-I barely know where t is." Another gal, this one from Dallas, said she thought the cat moved by "centrifugal force." Toal 47 percent of the ladies had ittle knowledge about it. Transmission. One brainy ferrule jaid thi:; was "where you put the key in." Another shrugged hei shoulders and said. "All I do is trive the old crate. ' percent knew notr'ng of its func ion. Distributor. An Atlanta woman said this had somothing to do will he windshie.d wiper. A well-in formed Philadelph'u irl said :he didn't know her car had one. Total —72 percent were in blissful ignorance. Valves. A Massachusetts woman <new there were iome valves on the tires, and a miss from Washington state knew .they "let some- Ihing in somewhere." From Pittsburgh a reply: "All I know is my husband's always grinding them." Total- 68 percent of the ladies were iazy. Crankshaft. This brought an indignant reply from a woman, who snorted, "I don't have to crank my car." And a St. Louis damsel described it as "an old-fashioned device founcT. i the Model T." Total •64 percent of the girls were not guilty of knowlbdge. Carburetor. Ladies in .Dallas and Seattle referred to this as something that "catcher dirt" and "cleans oil" respectivel. . A girl in Nebraska answered brightly, "It has something to do with the motor." Total—more than 50 percent couldn't tell a straight story. Battery. Said a lady from California: "It holds water inside and spark plugs on top." And a housewife in Hartford said, sagely, 'Well, a car has to have a battery —you can't plug it into a wall socket." Total—the g Is were pretty bright on this, since only 27 per- ent couldn't explain It. Spark Pings. This section of the urvey wounded the Champion jcople, who conducted it, because 5 percent of the women knew ittle about their product. One answered it "had something to do vith the horn, lights and radio," and another said it "regulated the low of gas." Radiator. The gals knew where Ms was, but that's about all. One said, "It's that thing up front that eaks." Another thought it was put there to boil water. A. midwestern woman said it "holds ti.e gri'le in position." Total—more than 30 percent were vague about it. Of course, there are exceptions. In Hartford, Conn., the survey turned up an ex-W;;c mechanic who was asked how a car ran. "Gas is mixed with . ir in the carburetor," she said, "and the gas-air mixture goes into the cylinders. When it fires it pushes the piston down and they turn the crankshaft." Show-off.
