B urns notes injustices ""wmJjV. I!' By AKIO KONOSHIMA WASHINGTON (LTD Hawaii's Gov. John A. Burns yesterday said his state had 'suffered old injustices for too long" and called for modification of U.S. coastal shipping regulations. Burns, addressing a conference on shipping to noncontiguous areas of America, said Hawaii, Alaska. Puerto Rico, Guam and the other non-contiguous areas need and deserve a special regulatory and promotional program. He said that Hawaii was more fully dependent on ocean transportation for economic survival than any other. He also laid blame to high shipping for Hawaii's having the highest cost of living of the 50 states outside of Alaska. He said Hawaii's objectives as far as domestic water transportation was concerned were: Adequate and continuous service. Competitive service, Efficient, low-cost service for all goods Irrespective of method of shipment and handling. Service to Neighbor Islands at the same rates and basis as to Oahu. Any proposed increase ' or decrease in rates to be given careful economic view and justification before being approved and instituted. REGARDING the Neighbor Islands, he emphasized the need to stimulate balanced growth among the four ocean-separated counties and added this "balanced growth cannot be maintained if water carriers are permitted to concentrate only on high profit segments of the Hawaii trade." He said beyond these matters of rates and service "there remains the most basic problem of all: the need for more ships, more efficient ships and ships whose construction and operating costs will permit lower rates to non-contiguous U.S. users and consumers so fully dependent on U.S. flag shipping." He said present programs do not permit ships benefiting from ship construction subsidies to enter Mainland-Hawaii trade except incidentally where they serve Hawaii only on their to and from foreign ports. He said this discourages Hawaii from developing its tremendous potential as a Pacific trade and transhipment center. TO POINT OUT how the non-contiguous areas suffered under present regulations, he noted that liquefied natural gas which Hawaii needs so badly and which is so abundant in Alaska is shipped to Japan, while Hawaii can only look to foreign sources of liquefied natural gas to be moved to the State on foreign flag vessels. As another example, he said that Hawaii was not dependent on foreign oil imported on foreign flag tankers for its energy, but that this oil was sold in Hawaii at high domestic finished fuel prices under an inequitable and outmoded import program. He said Sen. Daniel K. Ino-uye's proposed Hawaii Water Carriers Act calling for construction subsidies for vessels in the Mainland-Hawaii trade and permitting the use of U.S. flag, U.S. owned but foreign built vessels under certain restrictive conditions is "an expression of desperation." HE SAID HE WAS fully aware of the concern expressed by others at the conference maintaining the integrity of the Jones Act, under which America hopes to maintain complete control over shipping needs within the United States. He said, "I submit that to put us on an equal footing with our fellow citizens on the Mainland, in terms of water-borne commerce, is not only a matter of simple justice to us but a decided opportunity for opening up new horizons for the entire American merchant marine industry." Miiilc notes Jones Act WASHINGTON (UPI) The problems caused by the Jones Act "too often have been swept under the rug by policy-makers and others," Rep. Patsy T. Mink told a maritime conference yesterday. She said the bill that she and others have sponsored would exempt trade between Hawaii and Alaska from the Jones Act. But she added, "I am not wedded to any particular solution to our transportation problems." She said she wanted "to remove an obstacle that had demonstrably impeded my stale'i growth and development. "WE MUST find some way to at least allow our two non-contiguous states (Alas- UII students to vole on Vict issue "Are you for immediate withdrawal of all U.S. troops from Vietnam?" Thirteen thousand University of Hawaii undergraduates will be asked to check "yes" or "no" as their answer to this question later this month. The Vie'aam question will be included in the Associated Students' general election mail-out ballot April 23 and 23. The Hawaii vote will come 10 days after a similar referendum scheduled Monday and Tuesday on campuses throughout the country. The nationwide project is being conducted by two groups whose views on the war are at opposite poles-each of which expects the referendum to show that a majority of students back its position. They are the Young Amer leans for Freedom, which opposes withdrawal of U.S. forces, and the Student Mobilization Committee, which supports immediate withdrawal. ka and Hawaii) to explore channels of commerce between themselves. "I certainly support the Jones Act in its protection of U.S. jobs and business, just as I have faithfully supported each and every bill to benefit our Merchant Marine since I came to Congress. "Only where the Act serves not to protect American jobs but to deny employment to American workers would I consider a change, but that is exactly what is happening in Hawaii and Alaska today." SHE SAID Hawaii needs Alaska's lumber, fertilizer, liquefied natural gas and fish, while Alaska needed Hawaii's cement, non-perishable farm products and finished goods. State House President Ta-dao Beppu said Hawaii realized the problems involved in making the non-contiguous areas an exception to the Jones Act. But, Beppu said, if the suggested aid in the form of construction subsidy, creation of a revolving fund or operating subsidies to the shipping industry was forthcoming, "we in Hawaii would like to see some guarantee that these governmental aids are reflected in the reduction of shipping costs from Alaska and the Mainland to Hawaii." 3 A DIVISION OF SERVCO PACIFIC, INC. 2850 PUKOLOA ST.
