Ruskin explained her posi-
tion on the Alaska pipeline
situation and its tie with the
Mideast oil situation.
"With the Mideast situa-
tion being as volatile as it
is, we can't wait the five to
seven years or more to de-
velop the Canadian pipeline
plans while becoming more
dependent on the Arabs,"
she said.
"The other reason to sup-
port an all American line
from both a patriotic point
of view and a Jewish point
of view is that we can con-
trol our own resources."
"But right now, the most
expedient way we can dif-
fuse any potential Arab hold
on the U. S. is to approve
the trans-Alaska pipeline."
She notes that the major
opposition comes from the
East and Midwest. United
States, where conservation
groups and ecologists inter-
ested in preserving the land-
scape do not want to see it
spoiled by a 54-feet wide oil
pipeline. The proposed line
would extend from Prudhoe
Bay south to the port of
Valdez.
Slides and a question and
answer period will follow the
talk. The public is invited.
