-> + 2Brita1in, Iceland OK pact

OSLO, Norway (AP) - Britain
and Iceland signed a tempor-
ary agreement yesterday end-
ing the seven-month "cod war"
disput over fishing rights off
Iceland.
The agreement sharply cuts
fishing by British trawlers with-
in the 200-mile limit claimed by
Iceland.
AFTER TWO days of hectic
talks here, foreign secretaries
Anthony Crosland of Britain
and Einar Augustsson of Ice-
land signed the agreement in
the Norwegian government
guest house.
They had been aiming at a
six-month pact calling off the
war while a more permanent
agreement is worked out. Cros-
land declined to say during a
break in the talks if the agree-
ment would give British trawl-
ers some guarantee of contin-
ued fishing off Iceland after the
six months ends.
The island republic imposed,
the limit last year to protect
the cod and other fish stocks
that are vital to its economy.
Britain refused to recognize the
limit, touching off the dispute.
BRITISH industry officials
say loss of the fishing territory
would cost 9,000 jobs.
The main points of the pact
as reported by Icelandic sourc-
es were:

-The number of British
trawlers allowed to fish in the
200-mile fishing right zone
claimed by Iceland will be lim-
ited to an average of 24 trawl-
ers a day, compared to more
than 40 a day now.
-Fishing will only be con-
ducted by specifically named
trawlers.
-Britsin will ensure that spe-
cial areas where Iceland wish-
es to consere the cod stocks
will be respected by British
trawlers.
-Britain will ensure that
British trawlers will not fish
closer than 20 to 30 miles from
the Icelandic coast.
F)ozens of collisions and one
shooting incident between Ice-
landic and British ships have
occurred since the cod war be-
gan last October.

47 PER CENT BLACK:
Prison minority ratio high

WASHINGTON (M) - Forty-
seven per cent of those serving
time in state prisons during
1974 were black, although blacks
made up only 11 per cent of the
U.S. population, according to a
government survey.
More than 60 per cent of the
inmates were high school drop-
outs but about two-thirds had
full-time j ob s shortly before
their arrest, the report said.
Those who were working had a
median annual income of $4,639.
THE REPORT, issued by the
Law Enforcement Assistance
Administration, said the over-
whelming majority of inmates
were men between 18 and 34
years old, and most were serv-
ing sentences for murder, rob-
bery, or burglary.

The statistics were compiled
by the Census Bureau, which
conducted a nationwide survey
of inmates of state prisons and
other state corrections institu-
tions in January 1974.
Women accounted for only 3
per cent of the total prison pop-
ulation, the report said.
"THREE - FOURTHS of all
prisoners were 18 to 34 years of
age, where as only 40 per cent
of males 18 and over in the gen-
eral- civilian population were in
this age category," the research-
ers reported.
The report said 43 per cent
of the inmates admitted they
had been drinking alcoholic bev-
erages and 26 per cent said they
were under the influence of
drugs at the time of their
crimes.

"Three criminal offenses -
homicide, burglary and robbery
-accounted for. some three-
fifths of the convictions that led
to imprisonment of sentenced
inmates" in state institutions,
the report said.
ABOUT 96 per cent of the in-
mates had legal counsel. More
than 70 per cent of them were
indigents who were represented
by court - appointed attorneys,
public defenders or legal aid
lawyers, the report continued.
