Airports resume normal operation By The CANADIAN PRESS Airport operations across Canada were normal today after negotiations between representatives of airport firemen and the government resumed Friday. Tom O'Connor of Toronto, federal mediator in the dispute involving airport firefighters that hampered air travel for more than two weeks, met both sides separately and together in Ottawa Friday. He did not comment on the talks beyond saying they were preliminary and were to re- sume today. Firemen returned to work at 8 a.m. Friday and spent most of the day checking equipment left idle during their walkout. The airport at Vancouver, where firefighters walked out April 9 to spark the national work stoppage, reported normal operations Friday, as did Winnipeg airport. Spokesmen for airports at Halifax, Montreal, Toronto and across the Prairies said operations were normal early today. Transatlantic service was restored from Toronto and Montreal, another spokesman for the airline said Friday. Smaller aircraft such as DC- 9s and 737s bore most of the workload on domestic flights. A CP Air spokesman said in- ternational service was normal Friday and transcontinental service was about 80 per cent normal. In Edmonton, firefighters checked equipment handled by supervisory personnel during their 11-day walkout. Mr. O'Connor, 48, was ap- pointed Thursday to mediate the dispute between the fire- men, members of the Public Service Alliance of Canada, and the treasury board after the men rejected a government contract offer in a national vote. Vote figures were not re- leased but spokesmen for the firefighters said the ballot was close. They had said a return to work did not depend on acceptance of the contract offer but on appointment of a mediator.

Canada independence annoys Washington EDMONTON (CP) NDP leader Grant Notley said Friday the Alberta government is ignoring warnings by environmental experts that sulphur dioxide emissions from a number ol oil sands plants could produce a killer fog similar to the 1952 London fog in England. Mr. Notiey said, outside the legislature, a committee in the environment department has issued three reports "which document the severe danger to life (posed by) sulphur pollution trapped by Waiting EDMONTON (CP) The Alberta government will wait for a report on the province's future energy requirements before making a decision on approving new natural gas export permits, Premier Peter Lougheed said Friday. The report is expected in July. frequent air inversions" in the Fort McMurray region in northeatern Alberta. He said the government has not paid enough attention to the reports which indicate a buildup of sulphur dioxide could create a condition that would equal the 1952 fog that killed persons. The NDP leader called on the government to slow down the pace of oil sands development. One extraction plant already is operating, another is being built and a third was recently approved. Mr. Notley earlier raised the question in the legislature with Environment Minister Bill Yurko. "No one at this time can predict what the effect may be when we have a multiplicity of plants running and discharging sulphur Mr. Yurko said. "But we do know we have to study the problem in some he said. "There may be a problem in WASHINGTON (CP) A senior U.S. state department official accused Canada Friday night of sometimes separating itself artificially from the American position at international conferences. His Canadian counterpart rejected the charge as unfair.

The report says that acquir- ing the nuclear material is the only remaining obstacle facing those who want such a weapon because there is "widespread and increasing dissemination of precise and accurate instructions on how to make an atomic bomb in your basement." Made public by Senator Abraham Ribicoff the report concludes that "the potential harm to the public from the explosion of an illicitly made nuclear weapon is greater than that from any plausible nuclear power plant accident."

"If not firmly and com- petently met, these kidnappings may lead to a rise of urban terrorist groups of a sort unprecedented in our the study said. "These groups are likely to have available to them the sort of technical knowledge needed to use the now widely disseminated instructions for processing fissionable materials and for building a nuclear weapon. "They are also liable to be able to carry out reasonably sophisticated attacks on in- stallations and transportation." The study called for the creation of a fail-safe system to protect nuclear material. It said 15 highly trained men, no more than three of them working from the inside, would pose a credible threat to the safety of nuclear material whether it be in a storage site, at a nuclear reactor or being transported across the country. The study called for a sub- stantial increase in the budget for safeguarding nuclear material, a new federal organ- ization to carry and protect all shipments of nuclear material, and standby use of air force jet planes to intercept nuclear thieves fleeing by air. The AEC issued a statement saying it is "taking a hard look at the study to determine what additional measures should be taken." Mexico to such multilateral issues as disarmament and maritime law. And despite the accom- panying smiles and assurances that the views expressed were personal and not official, the exchange seemed to carry an undertone of impatience, if not chilliness. Stephen Schwebel, counsellor on international law at the state department, told the meeting there was an understandable desire on Canada's part to demonstrate its independence of the U S. at international conferences. "Canada has so often put to constructive this Schwebel said. But it seemed to the U.S. that Ottawa also had an ''occasional desire to demonstrate distance from the United States which the facts of geography don't support.'' Edward Lee, director- general of the external affairs department's legal affairs bureau, said he had agreed with Schwebel's talk until that point, "but then he blew it." It was unfair to say that Canada wanted to emphasize its differences with the U.S., said Lee. What Canada sought in some circumstances was to arrive at a compromise between U.S. views and the proposals of other countries, and this had occasionally proved to be the right method for "bringing the U.S. along" to a compromise which Washington eventually agreed was satisfactory. Mozambique quiet after takeover LOURENCO MARQUES, Mozambique (AP) This Portuguese East African territory remained calm today, two days after the military takeover in Lisbon.

In the northern seaport of Beira, the morning paper, No- ticias, carries a statement from a member of the new military regime in Lisbon. He is quoted as saying "Mozambique has nothing to worry about. The overseas provinces are not for sale." The statement added that anybody who had interpreted the book recently published by the country's new leader, Gen Antonio de Spinola, as meaning the abandonment of the African territories must be "quite illiterate." The army in Mozambique has issued no statements, but there was no doubt they supported the coup Brigadier Diogo Neto, air force commander in the territory, was named a member of the junta Pope Pius 'energetic9 in aid of refugees Steven pleads SAN FRANCISCO (AP) Steven Weed has urged the Symbionese Liberation Army (SLA) to free newspaper heir- ess Patricia Hearst and not throw away million set aside for her safe release.

VATICAN CITY (AP) A volume of the Vatican's war- time documents, declassified Friday, states that the Holy See was told it was likely that many Jews deported to Poland in early 1942 were destined for death. But it said it had no concrete evidence they were part of a policy of mass extermination. The volume, eighth in the Vatican's acts and documents from The Second World War, shows the papal envoy to Bra- tislava, Czechoslovakia, Msgr. Giuseppe Burzio, cabled the Vatican urgently on March 9, 1942, saying: "The deportation of persons to Poland and to the mercy of the Germans amounts to condemning a large part of them to sure death." But the volume said "Msgr. Burzio did not know anything about the real destination of the deportees like Msgr. Burzio, not even the Jewish agencies had knowledge that the deportations were part of a general operation for mass extermination." And the Vatican, at times accused of not doing its utmost to help Jews flee Nazi Germany, said its actions in aid of all refugees was "energetic." It said Pope Pius XII "showed indefatigable desire not to neglect any possibility to offer his help within the limits of his power and his influence without any distinction to nationality, race or religion." The volume disclosed 600 letters and pieces of correspondence, mostly between papal envoys to European capitals and the Vatican. the future. We will be studying it in considerable intensity." Mr. Yurko said when approval was given for construction of the Syncrude Canada Ltd. plant, regulations concerning sulphur dioxide emmissions were tightened. Haldeman kept cash in safe WASHINGTON (AP) H. R. Haldeman, while serving as White House chief of staff, kept cash in his safe to make gifts to White House employees, a former aide says. The disclosure came in testimony by Lawrence Higby given last December and unsealed Friday by U.S. District Judge Charles Richey. Higby, a former Haldeman aide now with the Office of Management and Budget, said he understood the money was given to Haldeman late in 1968 after President Nixon's election "to be passed on to those members of the staff who needed funds" for moving costs.
