TWO UTILITY vehicles stand amid the rubble in Atlanta, Georgia yesterday after an early
morning tornado swept through the city. The storm killed three and injured many more.

LONDON (/P) - Five Euro-
pean nations are scrambling for
parts of the Atlantic and arctic
seabeds where they think they
smell oil and gas worth billions
of dollars.
Britain is at the center of
four separate disputes involving
partner states in the North At-
lantic Treaty Organization (NA
TO) and the Common Market.
They are France, Ireland, Den-
mark and Norway.
COMPLEX ISSUES of inter- I
national law are involved. NoI
one now can say with total pre-
cision where a country's sea-
bed rights begin or end.
The Law of the Sea Confer-
ence, sponsored by the United
Nations, now is under way in
Geneva seeking to formulate
universally acceptable guide-
lines,but these may be a long
time in coming.j
A rundown of the major
troubles:
BRITAIN AND France are
quarreling over who owns what
seabed rights in the Western
approaches to the English Chan-
nel. This means where to draw
the underwater median line be-
tween the two coasts. Even a
500-yard deviation could affect
ownership of a lush oilfield.
Britain argues the Scilly
Isles -- where Prime minister
Harold Wilson has a vacation
home - should be taken as its
starting point rather than the
shores of Cornwall. France dif-
fers, knowing this would mean
giving un 20,000 sauare miles of
Mer D'Iroise - The Angry Sea
-with all its promise.
Successive interventions by
Wilson and President Valery
Giscard D' Estaing of France
have failed to resolve the prob-
lem.
BRITAIN IS at odds with
Ireland over rights in the Irish

and Celtic Seas. Here again the
British are arguing that the '
Scilly Isles should be their
base point. The Irish argue that
islands outside British terri-
torial waters, thinly people and
small in size, should not countI
as mainland territory. Asthey
see it, the median line should
be straight down the middle,
at all points, between the re-
spective shores.
Britain is facing a combined!
Irish - Danish challenge against
its claim to 52,000 square miles
of ocean bed around the tiny
granite outcrop of Rockall in
the Atlantic, about 300 miles off
the Scottish coast. Some ex-
perts believe there are richer
fuel deposits in this region than
in the bonanza fields of the
North Sea now under develop-
ment.
In Dublin and Copenhagen
lawyers and geologists alike
have accused Britain of grab-
bing a chunk of the seabed larg-
er than the whole of England
without justification. The main-1
tain a deep water canyon sepa-
rates the area from the British
continental shelf. Britain main-
tains the potential fields are "a
natural prolongation" of the
Scottish landmass.
Britain's challenge to Norway
is over the Spitzbergen - or
Svalbard - Archipelago. Un-
der a 1920 treaty signed by 40
nations, including the Soviet Un-
ion and the United States, Spitz-
bergen confirmed Norway as its

rightful owner. But it also gave
the signatories equal rights to
share in the development of its
mineral resources. Now that oil
and gas are suspected in the
surrounding seabeds the situa-
tion has become more com-
plex.
Another major factor is stra-
tegic. The Spitzbergen Passage,
north of the Barents Sea, is the
gateway into the Atlantic used
by Russia's nuclear submarine
fleet. Moscow almost certainly
would resist any Western effort
to establish any kind of foot-
hold on the island that would
threaten its approaches to, and
departures from, Murmansk
and Archangelsk.
