TOKYO ,P) - North Korea
established an unprecedented
"military sea boundary" yes-
terday and said most foreign
ships and planes would be ban-
ned from entering the area
without permission. South Ko-
rea refused to recognize the
An announcement carried by
the North Korean Central News
Agency said the restrictions ap-
plied to civilian as well as mili-
tary craft "on the seas, in the
sea and in the air."
"THE MILITARY boundary
is up to 50 miles from the
starting line of the territorial
waters in the east sea (Sea of
Japan) and to the boundary
line of the economic sea zone
in the west sea (Yellow Sea),"
said the report on the action
taken by the North Korean
People's Army.
How far the zone extended
into the Yellow Sea separating
China and North Korea was not
certain. Observers estimated it
would be roughly So miles.
North Korea said, the mili-
tary zone was "demanded by

the situation prevailing in our
country" and was designed to
"safeguard the economic sea
zone . . . and defend militar-
ily the national interests."
ed 20-mile economic zone also
went into effect yesterday. This
gives . orth Kore control of
fishing, mining and other eco-
nomic concerns. All the laws
of the Communist state apply
within its territorial waters,
which extend for 12 miles.
All states have territorial
waters and many are adopting
economic zones, but North Ko-
rea is the first to create a
coastal defense zone.
South Korea said it "wilt not
recognize" the military eco-.
nomic zones but North Korea
is the first to create a coastal

defense zone.
South Korea said it "will not
recognize" the military eco-
nomic zones. Culture and In-
formation Minister Kim Seung-
jin urged the Communist re-
gime headed by President Kim
Il-sung to "give up" both the
economic zone and the military
boundary, warning that the two
measures would otherwise "en-
danger" peace on the Korean
THE U. S.-LED United Na-
tions Command declined com-
Japan, one of North Korea's
four neighbors, also reacted
negatively. Sunao Sonoda, chief
cabinet secretary, told report-
ers he believes the military
boundary "runs counter in in-
ternational law and practice."

Gene Littler
It's possible to go into an annual checkup feeling terrific.
And come out knowing something's wrong. It happened to
me. The doctor found what I couldn't even feel ... a little
lump under my arm. If I had put off the appointment for
one reason or another, I probably wouldn't be here today
Because that little lump I couldn't feel was a melanoma, a
highly aggressive form of cancer that spreads very quickly.
It's curable--but only if found in time.
So when I tell you, "Get a checkup," you know it's from
my heart. It can save your life. I know. It saved mine.
Have a regular checkup.-
It can save your life.
