In many SEAWAY STILL POLITICALLY MIRED Approval of the U.S. Congress of the St. Law--rence seaway as a joint project with Canada remains a remote.and unlikely prospect, despite the majority vote of a U.S. Senate committee to clear seaway legislation for reference to the Senate as it whole. The long record of Congressional action or lack of it on the joint seaway proposal, and the absence of any major new factor likely to alter it, leave the scheme still deeply mired in a political quicksand of conflicting U.S. interests. Seaway bills on several occasions in the past have cleared the hurdle of committee votes to reach the Senate agenda, but have been blocked, referred back or left to die a natural death without debate prior to adjournment Even in the doubtful event that the measure should finally-gain a favorable vote ia the present Senate, it would still have to face substantial and determined opposition in the House of Representatives. There appears no real hope that either house, much less Congress s a whole, will muster majority support for the joint undertaking. The powerful influences and groups which have long been arrayed against U.S. participation in the seaway scheme, and which object even to an all-Canadian project, were brought out in a local address by a leading U.S. proponent of the plan. Speaking before the Montreal Rotary Club. Dr. N. R. Danielian, executive vice-president of the Great Lakes-St. Lawrence Association, noted the strong adverse influence exerted on Congress by representations of railroad, electric power and coal mining interests, and by sectional interests centred on coastal ports. Mr Danielian cited no reason to believe that th blockade of the seaway by Congress for the past 20 years could now be broken. Indeed, he foresaw that even when Canada undertook to build the seaway alone, opposing U.S. interests would seek to block the joint development by U.S. and Canadian agencies of the integral power phase of the project. Coming from a man anxious to see the seaway go ahead, as either a joint or Canadian undertaking, and who might be expected to seize on any hope for an early start. Mr. Danielian's summation is none too encouraging. At best, it foreshadows that there will be further extended delay in getting even an all-Canadian project under way, THE WHITE HOUSE WASHINGTON A?rii 17, 1J52 tear Hr.
