The telephone company, which had already been granted million in increases this year, told the Canadian trans- port commission it is cutting its requested increases for next year because "a buoyant econ- omy" boosted revenue ex- pectations. A company spokesman said j the cut had nothing to do with public opposition. The lowered 1974 requests, which must have federal gov- ernment approval before being put into effect, would raise most residential phone bills by 10 cents a month instead of original requests for increases ranging from 30 to 45 cents j monthly. Business phone rates i would go up per cent in- stead of the originally asked per cent. I "We're still firmly opposed to the telephone rate increases in ;the revised said Ken Rubin of Action Bell Can- ada.

Jetliner hijacker claims action gesture of good will TEL AVIV (AP) The drunk Libyan who forced an Arab air- liner to land in Israel probably will be charged -with hijacking the plane and endangering the lives of the other 124 persons aboard, a magistrate told him today. Magistrate Eliezer Goldberg ordered the Arab, Mahmoud Toiani, held for 15 days while police investigated the hijack- ing. The judge said the police wanted him held for "hijacking an airliner and endangering the lives of its passengers and crew." "I do not deserve to be kept in jail for doing something I be- lieve the friendship of an Arab for Toumi protested. "I didn't hurt any of the pas- sengers. I planned this action for several years so that nobody be harmed." ISRAEL ONLY ASYLUM After he surrendered his tvvo pistols to Israeli security men Thursday, Toumi told a news conference: "Since I was a boy I was influenced by the per- secution and hard life of the Jews in Libya. I have- no asy- lum except in Israel." "A drunk, mad said Premier Golda Meir. Officials said Toumi is a 37- year-old Libyan merchant who lived in Lebanon and carried a Libyan passport. He said he hi- jacked the Middle East Airlines Boeing 707 jet "to show that not all Arabs want to throw the Jews into the "Some Arabs believe Israel must have a country, but Cairo prevents the Arabs by force from showing this." Israel's chief of staff, Lt.-Gen. David Elazar, said Toumi will be put on trial because "hijack- ers all over the world should be punished." SEIZED AFTER TAKEOFF The Lebanese airliner had 125 passengers and crew members aboard. Toumi took control 45 minutes after the plane took off from Benghazi, Libya, for Bei- rut. "He just came into my cock- pit as we were near Cyprus, holding two guns and saying he wanted to fo to Israel, and "If you don't go, I will kill you and your said Cap- tain Adel Kawas, the Lebanese pilot. He added there had been no check of the passengers at Benghazi for hidden weapons or explosives. The man is reported to have fired one shot but hit no one. Israel at first was reluctant to let the plane fly over Israeli territory and denied the pilot permission to attempt a land- ing. But Kawas said he told tht Tel Aviv control tower he war coming in "whether you like i or not." Israeli Phantom jets escorter the airliner down, a precautior in case it was on a suicide mis- sion to crash into an Israel" city, Defence Minister Mosht Dayan said. After the landing.

Israeli security men boarded the plane, and Touim surrendered after only a slight struggle. Israeli officials held plane and passengers for about seven hours, questioned the pas- sengers and crew and then allowed all but Toumi to fly to Lebanon. Libya's amgassador to Iraq.
