    Background: SCIENTISTS' REPORTS OF DWINDLING WHALE RESOURCES IN THE ANTARCTIC LOOM OVER A FOUR-NATION WHALING CONFERENCE THAT OPENED HERE YESTERDAY (WEDNESDAY). THE FOUR NATIONS ARE NORWAY, THE USSR, AND JAPAN, ALL OF WHICH ARE ENGAGED IN ANTARCTIC WHALING. AND BRITAIN, WHICH RESERVES THE RIGHT TO RESUME WHALING IN THE ANTARCTIC.

    THE CONFERENCE, WHICH IS SCHEDULED TO LAST UNTIL 7 SEPTEMBER, IS BEING HELD IN THE HOTEL NEW OTANI, TOKYO. ACCORDING TO PRESS REPORTS, THE FOUR NATIONS ARE LIKELY TO ARGUE BITTERLY ABOUT HOW AN OVERALL CATCH LIMIT OF 3,500 BLUE WHALE UNITS SHOULD BE SHARED WHEN THE NEXT SEASON STARTS IN DECEMBER. JAPANESE NEWSPAPER REPORTS SAY THE KEY TO SUCCESS OF THE CONFERENCE WILL BE WHETHER OR NOT THE USSR WILL MAKE SUFFICIENT CONCESSIONS. IF THE CONFERENCE FAILS TO AGREE, THE REPORTS SAY, ANTARCTIC WHALING WILL REVERT TO THE "OLYMPIC FORMULA", UNDER WHICH EACH NATION WILL BE FREE TO CATCH AS MANY WHALES AS IT LIKES WITHIN THE OVERALL FRAMEWORK.

    (AN INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE HELD IN LONDON IN JUNE LOWERED THE OVERALL CATCH LIMIT TO 3,500 BLUE WHALE UNITS FROM 4,500 UNITS LAST SEASON, IN VIEW OF APPARENT DEPLETION OF RESOURCES).
