NEW ZEALAND MAN ROWS ACROSS PACIFIC SANTIAGO (CP) A New Zealander has completed a solitary voyage across the Pacific in a rowing boat from Chile to Samoa in Polynesia, living for 10 months on cereals. Agence France Presse said today Andres Svelundi, 46, set out from Valparaiso Feb.27 aboard his craft meaning in Polynesian dialect Lucky Sailor. With him he took only a radio receiver, a small charcoal stove for cooking and a pair of oars. Svelundi, whose exploits were reported in Chilean newspapers Wednesday, had intended to reach Australia but was forced to give up in Samoa with stomach trouble. A similar attempt to cross the Pacific in May, 1973, ended in failure when Svelundi's rowing boat was almost destroyed by heavy seas. Svelundi, a bachelor, trained for several years before undertaking t'ne journey, regularly rowing non- stop over distances of more than 200 miles. In 1970 he rowed from Australia to aboard a craft similar to the Waka-Moana. DUBLIN (Reuter) The Provisional Irish Republican Army (IRA) today announced a Christmas ceasefire in its guerrilla warfare against British rule in Northern Ireland. The ceasefire will last from midnight on Sunday until mid- night Jan.2 and will apply to all IRA operations in Northern Ireland and in Britain. The statement said the 11- day truce was designed tc give the British government an op- portunity to consider proposals for a permanent ceasefire. The statement warned that if there was no satisfactory reply at the end of the ceasefire period "then the Irish Republican Army will have no option but to resume hostilities." Any breach of these terms will be considered a refusal to accept the 11-day truce, it said. The announcement came hours after a 100-pound bomb in a car exploded outside a large department store in Bonnyville boycott ends BONNEYVILLE (CP) The boycott of classes by about a dozen Indian students at Notre Dame School has ended. The students had walked out of classes last Wednesday protesting the departure of a teacher, a policy regarding school lunch passes and curriculum changes. Airline talks halt MONTREAL Air Canada spokesman said early- today the airline would follow normal flight schedules at Montreal International Air- port despite a strike by maintenance workers. Meanwhile, talks between the Union of Canadian Tran- sport Employees, representing the 275 striking maintenance men, and the Treasury Board, broke off last night. MPpay raise bid goads unions seeking contracts OTTV.VA (CP) Labor spokesmen say Parliament's bid for a hefty pay raise for itself has acted as a goad on unions seeking new wage contracts. Authorities expect the pressure to persist in key wage negotiations coming up next year. The Public Service Alliance of Canada blames the move by MPs for an outburst of wildcat strikes this week among air- port and postal maintenance workers. "We had our members un- der control until the MPs decided to give themselves that said an alliance i WARNER BROTHER!

"That blew the bloody roof off the spokesman said of the original parliamentary bid for a 50 per cent increase and the revised version published Thursday. Stan Little, president of the strong Canadian Union of Public Employees, the country's biggest union, says the parliamentary move is "an absolute disgrace." "It totally discredits any credibility the government had in asking for restraint in wage demands in coping with he said. Claude Edwards, alliance president, said government pay awards for most employees this year have fail- ed to keep pace with the 12 per cent inflation rate. The government pay raise bill introduced last Monday would have added 50 per cent to the taxable salaries and tax free allowances of MPs and senators, retroactive to last July. The revised proposal changes that to about 33 per cent now, but provides for further substantial increases annually to 1978. With a heavy bargaining year ahead in 1975 and impor- tant groups of organized workers seeking new contracts, repercussions of the parliamentary proposal may be lasting. The impact is likely to be the greatest in the federal public service, which has seen some treasury board offers on new contracts this year that fall far short of 50 per cent. Earlier this year the government offered a seven per cent increase over three years to public service secretaries one of the lowest paid groups of employees. Final settlement was about 15 per cent over two years. Prosecutor sums up Watergate episode WASHINGTON (AP) Prosecutor James Neal open- ed his closing argument at the Watergate cover-up trial Thursday by describing the case against the five defen- dants as boiling down to "plain old garden-variety right or wrong." Neal got about halfway through his argument to the jury before Judge John Sirica recessed the trial for the day. was LK icsuxue his summation today. The five defendants listened silently while Neal outlined the case against them, which he called a conspiracy to obstruct justice "on a massive scale by the highest officials of this land." One by one, Neal described the roles the government al- leges each defendant former attorney general John Mitchell; ex-White House aides H. R. Haldeman and John Ehrlichman; former assistant attorney general Robert Mardian; and Kenneth Parkinson, a Washington lawyer who represented the Nixon campaign committee. Neal referred to testimony about meetings at which Jeb Stuart Magruder, former dep- uty director of Richard Nix- on's re-election committee, outlined to Mitchell a cover story he planned to tell Watergate investigators to ex- plair the budget for the political intelligence plan that led to the break-in. London. It was the third bombing in Britain this week. Following anonymous warn- ings telephoned to two London newspapers, police had 20 minutes to clear the Oxford Street area of hundreds of people watching the Christ- mas lights. Only three injuries were reported in the area near the big Selfridges store. Police said the bomb inside a Cortina car parked in a taxi stand was one of the biggest ever used by terrorists in Brit- ain. It shattered windows over a wide area. Troubled Indian sentenced VANCOUVER (CP) A former .Indian chief who asked police to crack down on alcoholism and violence among his people was sentenced Thursday to four years in prison for the shotgun death of two men after a drinking spree. Michael Paul Solonas, 34, of the McLeod Lake Reserve, about 100 miles north of Prince George, was sentenced in Supreme Court here for manslaughter in the death of Gerald Chingee, 17, and was sentenced to two years con- current with that four year term for the death of his brother, Ernest John Solonas, 22. A jury, in Prince George earlier heard the two men were shot in front of the ac- cused's home during a mid- night argument July 13 in which they threatened to burn the house. RCMP said they learned during their investiga- tion the accused and the two victims had been drinking for several hours. Less than two months before, stolonas, commenting on a tragic toll of seven un- natural deaths on the reserve in six months, said there was a curse on the band and the curse was alcohol. "A lot of our people don't know how to handle he said at that time. "I definitely invite the RCMP to check on our reserve, especially on the pay he continued then. "Things would be a lot quieter." The all white jury of seven men and five women deliberated for five hours Dec. 6 before bringing guilty verdicts on charges, which had been reduced from non capital murder. The fact that there were no Indians on the jury has prompted criticism from In- dian people in the area. Wilbur Campbell, chief ad- ministrative officer of the Native Courtworkers and Counselling Association of B.C., said in a letter to At- torney General Alex Mac- donald, released Thursday, that Indians feel judgment by an all white jury does not constitute "judgment by an accepted principle of common law.

(AP) Forty hostages were released from a suburban Minneapolis supermarket today after be- ing held for six hours by arm- ed robbers who had threaten- ed to "blow some of them away." The final 14 hostages were freed and the last of the gunmen gave themselves up to police about six hours after the holdup began. Police said none of the hostages appeared to be in- jured. However, one gunman received a minor gunshot wound and another was cut by glass. One gunman identified as Darrell claimed to be an In- dian and told AP the siege was designed "to pay back the white people for what they did to us in the younger days of America." But another identified as Bill said the men "just came in for some and Brian added: "We're all poor people, you know. We're just asking back what you people stole from us."
