Oil drilling May begin
again in Calif. channel

(Continued from Page 1)
tory of GOO, says there were 10,000
oil spills last year in inland and
ocean waters of the United States.
"Their technology has not ad-
vanced significantly since the ex-
plosion," Sanders said. "There is
no system available yet that will
contain oil in seas with waves of
five feet or more. Nothing better
than straw has been developed tor
soak up oil."
"It's still leaking out there. It's
never stopped leaking," added
James Bottoms, vice president of
GOO. "If it would happen again
today, there would still be no way
to clean it up."
THE OIL companies contend
that renewed drilling would not
cause a new leak in the channel.
They say the federal government
stiffened its standards for oil drill-
ing after the 1969 accident, and
many new precautions have been
taken to prevent leaks.
The oil companies note that 900
wells have been drilled off the
California coast in recent years

w;'1-o-tn accident.
Santa Barbara residents are not
con-inced.
A FEW RESIDENTS support re-
newed drilling:
Accountant Ernst Holmes said
he remembers the beach being
dirty long before there was any oil
drilling. He said it's unpopular to
be for drilling in Santa Barbara.
"People are afraid to speak up
for fear they'll be ridiculed,"
Holmes said. "Santa Barbara is
telling the country 'We aren't go-
ing to give you any oil.' That's the
same thing the Arabs are saying."
GOG SEEKS A permanent ban
on drilling in the Santa Barbara
Channel.
"In view of the power of cor-
porations and their ability to ma-
nipulat governmental decisions,
we cannot leave the channel un-
protected," said GOO President
Frank Sarguis. "We need a more
permanent solution, such as a na-
tionol monument, national park,
national preserve or some such
protective status for the channel."

House passes limits on
loans to Soviet traders

(Continued from Page 1)
viets and halting the progress
made by Soviet officials who favor
freer emigration.
"SOVIET JEWS will be worse
off than they are today, ' Obey
contended.
The Soviet Union grants the right
to emigrate but imposes a fee of
900 rubies, just over 1.,000. Halff
of this is for exit papers and half
for what is called renunciaCon of
Soviet citizenship.
There are no hard fig-res on
how much U.S. credit will t~e need-
ed for U.S.-Soviet deals now if, the
works, but American afficials pri-
vately agree with bankers' esti-
mates of a range of $5 billion.
They say the two biggest dea s,
joint U.S.-Soviet development of
iatural gas fields and pipelines in
east and west Siberia, will cost $10
illion to $15 billion with $3 billion
o $4 billion financed by the U.S.
;overnment-subsidized loans.
IN OTHER action, the House
)assed a $5.8 billion appropriations
)ill for the Israeli and other emer-
;ency aid, regular U.S. foreign aid
mnd related programs including the

Pe-ace Corps and international
ba-,ks.
The House passed the bill 219 to
180 and sent it to the Senate.
Efforts to cut off U.S. aid to
S-1di Arabia because of the Arab
oil boycott, and U.S. aid to Chile
because of imprisonment of dissi-
dents, were overwhelmingly re-
jected.
THE AMENDMENT to cut off
All 522.2 million in military aid for
Sa'idi Arabia this year was offered
by Rep. Robert Tiernan (D-R.I.)
who said the United States should
not give in to what he called the
blackmail of the Arab oil boycott.
It was shouted down by voice
vote.
"Saudi Arabia has declared eco-
nomic war on us," Tiernan told
the House, "and we can do the
same."
But opponents including House
Appropriations Chairman George
Mahon (D-Tex.) called Tiernan's
proposal dangerous.
"U less this situation in the Mid-
dle E 'st is handled with great
skill," said Mahon, "it could lead
to World War III."
