Authors' trial postponed LISBON (Reuter) The final court session in the trial of the three Portuguese feminist writers, nicknamed "The Three was postponed today until May 7, court officials, said. The three, Maria Barreno, 34, Maria Da Costa, 35, and Maria Horta, 35, face charges of offending public morality by jointly writing New Portuguese Letters Novas Cartas Portugueses, an anthology of letters, poems and essays. The authors, supported by writers and academics, have stated their work is not pornographic as the authorities claim. "It is erotic but it is meant to they said. Court sources said today's session, at which the verdict was expected to be given, was postponed to give the judge more time to study the case. At the last hearing April 4 the prosecutor surprised the court by asking for an acquittal. MIAMI (APIi Frank Bor- man, who six years ago piloted man's first flight around the moon, now is attempting to pull one of the country's largest airlines out of a financial tailspin. In less than four years the former astronaut has risen to the post of senior vice- president for operations, sharing the No. 2 spot in Eastern Airlines' corporate structure. Speaking of Eastern's million operating deficit for 1973, the commander of Apollo B's Christmas, 1968, flight, says: "It's no secret that 1973 was a very bad year financially. Various circumstances and the energy crisis have made for a year demanding 18 months." As the man charged with overseeing daily operations of the airline, Borman begins his day at 7 a.m. and puts in 11 hours, six days a week. "I guess I'm one of those people who thrives on he said. While not as publicly visible as some space alumni, Borman. 46, is perhaps the highest paid, earning more than annually. STICKS TO JOB "I don't get involved in public he said. "My job pretty much excludes any outside contacts." But Borman, a link between Eastern Chairman Floyd Hall and the airlines' vice- presidents for engineering, maintenance, sales and service, is visible to Eastern employees. When an Eastern Lockheed 1011 crashed in the Everglades last year, killing more than 100 persons, Borman was among the rescuers who trudged through the swamp marshes to reach survivors. But "I'm no father Borman said when a visitor tried to compare him to Capt. Eddie Rickenbacker, another famous United States aviator who built Eastern into a FRANK BORMAN major company. Borman, a retired air force colonel, said his nine years in the space program provided good training for his new ca- reer. His eyes narrow and he smoothes his close-cropped silver hair impatiently at the suggestion that some might consider the country's astronauts mere rocket jockeys. "Our experience was broad- gauged, especially from the managerial standpoint." he said.

The application proposed rate increases of nine per cent for telegrams, night letters, money transfers and press messages sent in Canada as well as six per cent for rental of communications equipment such as Telex. There would be a 20 per cent increase in broadband tolls and occasional and monthly broadcast services would cost 10 per cent more. CP-CN Telecommunications says the new increases, along with the application last November for an 11 per cent increase for telegrams which is still pending before the commission, would yield million revenue a year, helping offset higher labor costs which reach million annually. TORONTO (CP) A Toronto Humane Society official said today that the rising cost of pet foods is forcing some pet owners to abandon their animals. "A few years ago, it was pretty uncommon for people to throw out their animals, said James Bunting, a driver at the humane society. "Now we're getting 25 to 50 calls a day about abandoned pets." A spokesman for Nabisco Foods Division of Nabisco Ltd. said his company's dog 1 biscuits have gone up two to three cents a pound in the last three months. "We're facing sharply higher costs for all our basic ingredients wheat, soybean meal, meat meal and milk the spokesman said. Alan Cliffe, president of Hartz Mountain Pet Supplies Ltd. in St. Thomas. Ont., said the biggest problem is the cost of grain, which has tripled in the last year. His company's bird seeds now cost 10 cents a pound more than they used to. Besides ingredients, pet food makers are also facing large increases in packaging materials, especially cans.
