Sea law conference ends with warning CARACAS, Venezuela (AP) — The third United Nations Law of the Sea Conference has •ended with a call for negotiations on a treaty for signing next year governing the use and protection of oceans. "The stage of discussion in the form of general statements and set speeches must be recognized as definitely over," said the conference president, Hamilton S. Amerasinghe of Sri Lanka, at the closing session Thursday. "The time has come for active, serious and earnest negotiations." After three weeks of policy statements from the 148 nations represented and another seven weeks of discussions in three working committees, the conference failed to agree on a treaty provision covering any of the 100 agenda items. Many of the 5,000 delegates and observers had already left FAITHFUL Indian companion to the Lone Ranger, Ton to has found a new profession.

Caracas and were looking ahead to the next conference in Geneva starting March 17. Many delegates indicated they hope to hold bilateral or regional meetings before then to try to resolve differences. The most significant achievement of the conferences was an agreement in principle by all of the delegates that the limits of territorial waters should be extended from 3 to 12 miles and that an additional 1P8 miles should be an economic zone open to international navigation but with the adjacent coastal nation controlling the economic resources of the waters and the seabed. Among other problems left unresolved were: —The demands of landlocked nations, such as Bolivia and Paraguay, that they be given access to the sea and share in the benefits of resources in waters off nearby coastal states. —A detailed enumeration of the rights and obligations of coastal states in areas within their jurisidiction, particularly with regard to fishing. —How to deal with resources in and under the seas beyond the 200-mile economic zone. Light hazard WASHINGTON (AP) - The chief judge of the U.S. District Court here is asking news organizations to help warn the public of a certain brand of household trouble light he regards as an "extraordinary hazard." Judge George L. Hart Jr. said on Thursday he was calling the vice presidents of the three major commercial television networks to ask that they film a demonstration today of the light's hazards. The light, manufactured by A.K. Electric Corp. of Brooklyn, N.Y., consists of a long cord attached to a light bulb protected by a metal cage. The soft plastic handle poses a hazard by enabling a user's hand to touch the metal electrical receptacles, potentially causing a fatal shock, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission has said.

COLONU SAIMDfRS R£CiP[ frid HIGHWAY » NORTH Canada asks return of deserter Governor cites inflation causes OTTAWA ZAP) - The Canadian government has received no reply from the U.S. State Department after requesting the return of a U.S. Army deserter captured by American customs agents on Canadian soil. The Canadian Foreign Office delivered its request for the return of Ronald J. Anderson, 31, to the U. S. embassy on Thursday after the U. S. Customs Service admitted that its men went "a few yards" into Canada last Saturday to take Anderson into custody. The customs men arrested the young man in Peace Arch International Park, on the border between the state of Washington and British Columbia after he and his wife, Marion, drove across the border to visit his mother and his 11-year-old son by an earlier marriage in Poulsbo, Wash. The Customs Service said An- derson broke away from its men and they crossed the border inadvertently to recapture him. A spokesman said the agents did not realize they had crossed the border until it was too late. The customs men turned Anderson over to the Army, which is holding him at Ft. Lewis, 'Wash. A spokesman there said the Army was awaiting instructions from the State Department. Anderson deserted from the Army in 1968 after it refused to classify him as a conscientious objector, according to his moth er, Betty Peterson. She said he left the Army "because he didn't approve of the Vietnam war and couldn't stand the quick-kill methods they were trying to teach him to use." Anderson has been living in Mission, B.C., and working as a carpenter. He has been granted landed immigrant status like most of the thousands of American deserters and draft evaders in Canada, and would have been eligible to apply for Canadian citizenship this fall. Canada and the United States have an extradition treaty, but desertion and draft evasion are not extraditable offenses. LITTLE ROCK (AP - Oil prices and grain shipments to the Soviet Union triggered the current inflation in this country, Gov. Dale Bumpers said Thursday. Asked if he expected the state to have the same energy- related problems this year as last, Bumpers said, "I think its Kidnapers are silent GUADALAJARA, Mexico (AP) —Officials maintained today that there has been no word from the kidnapers of President Luis Echeverria's 83- year-old father-in-law since he was seized at a busy Guadalajara street corner two days ago. Troops and police continued the hunt for the old man, Jose Guadalupe Zuno Hernandezm Zuno's doctors said they feared for his life because he must have daily medication. Persistent unofficial reports attributed the kidnaping to the leftist guerrillas of the People's Armed Revolutionary Front, who kidnaped U.S. Consul-General Terrance G. Leonhardy in Guadalajara 18 months ago. But federal and state officials said they had nothing to confirm these reports, and sources close to the Zuno family said it had received no demands or notes from the kidnapers. a possibility, but not nearly the strong probability it was last year. I don't anticipate any of the problems we had last year " he said. "Venezuela is cutting back by a million barrels (of oil) a day, Saudi Arabia is cutting back two million a day. "This simply means one thing — that the world has reduced its appetite for petroleum products because of the prices being charged for it, and I'm sure these people are trying to hold the price up by cutting back on production." The governor said that was unfortunate. "It is not to those country's long-term best interests to create and perpetrate the kind of inflation the world is experiencing right now," he said. Bumpers said it was too early to evaluate the political effects of former President Nixon's resignation and Gerald Ford's gaining the presidency. "I think President Ford is a hard-working man with a good working knowledge of Congress; I think he will have a good relationship with Congress," Bumpers said. "How well he succeeds...will determine what happens later. The country is looking for lead^ ership. President Ford and I disagree on wage-price com trols. The time now is for some strong leadership, and <3Ven though some of those decisions may be wrong, I think the country would forgive the President unless they were too dramatic, as long as they know he is making a strong, noble and honest effort to come to grips with the problems," Bumpers said "How those things develop in the next two years will determine what effect it will have on the political scene in the country," Bumpers said.
