Kenmore Deluxe Electric Range Air travel slump creates crisis By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS A slump in air travel has sent shock waves around the world, but several major world car- riers say they are holding their own and anticipate no large service cuts this year. Britain's two mate state-run as well as a dropoff in passen- gers, expect far smaller profits in the fiscal year ending March 31 But both1 British Overseas Air- ways Cotp., which flies the At- lantic and other long hauls, and British European Airways, which flies to Europe and the Middle East, say they are ex- panding their staffs and number of flights. Canada's two major airlines, Air Canada and Canadian Pa- cific, showed a profit in the lat- est available reports, despite rising costs, and both are conti- nuing to grow, A reflection of the general cri- sis in air travel was indicated, however, in the recent decision of Air Canada to lay off 415 of its work force. The move was made because of what it called slow traffic growth and "continued inflationary pres- sures." Those dropped were mostly part-time station attend- Distributors won't handle FLQ paper MONTREAL (CP) The con- troversial J a n u a r y issue of Scanlan's Monthly on urban guerrilla -warfare will not be sold in Quebec, editor Sidney Zion said here. In a telephone interview from New York, Mr. Zion said he had been informed by Benjamin News Ltd. of Montreal that dis- tributors would not handle the issue. It deals with guerrilla warfare in the U.S. and makes no references to Canada- Copies of the issue, printed in St. Jean, Que. after union printers in the U.S. turned it down, were seized in December and held for two weeks by KCMP. After being cleared by HCMP of any violation of the War Mea- sures Act, Montreal and provin- cial police seized copies on grounds that they might be seditious. Police later released the cop- ies and fined Scanlan's Monthly for failure to register in Quebec. Benjamin News received a telegram Dec. 16 from Antonio Dube, Quebec deputy justice minister, advising the company not to place the issue on new- stands. Distributors in Los Angeles, West Palm Beach, Philadelphia, St. Louis, London, Ont. and To- ronto have also refused to circu- late the issue. Ah- France has not published a quarterly report, but a spokesman for the line said it is expected to break even or possi- bly show a loss for 1970. WITHHOLDING FIGURES Italy's state-owned Alitalia line, which ran up a profit of million in 1969, win not dis- close the figures for 1970 until its board of directors meets next June. No figures are available at this stage for West Germany's Lufthansa Line. The Bonn gov- ernment plans to pump about million into the country's aircraft and space industry over the next five years. In the Soviet .Union, an offi- cial of the civil aviation minis- try indicated that Aeroflot, the national airline, is expanding its budget, services and personnel EXPECTS LOWER PROFITS In Tokyo, a spokesman for Japan Air Lines said a dropoff in business has forced a re-eval- uation of the company's earn- ings outlook. It had expected to make more than million for me fiscal year ending March but earnings now are expected to be lower, the spokesman said. Nowhere does the picture seem as dark as in the United States. The U.S. figures for 1970 are not all in, but as a group the 21 scheduled and 10 non-scheduled airlines are expected to show a loss of more than million. About million of this loss is being suffered by the 12 major U.S. lines. Immigrant fears death if deported TORONTO (CP) Christian George Hanna, sometimes called "the man without a coun- told an immigration board hearing Wednesday that he would be shot if he returned to Egypt. The Egyptian citizen was ar- rested here in December and subsequently found guilty of de- frauding a local tavern of The board is examining a de- portation order for illegal entry and violation of previous depor- tation orders. Douglas Rutherford, arguing for the Crown, told the hearing that Hanna, who jumped off a Liberian tanker at Toronto har- bor Oct. 27, is a "classic story teller." Mr. Rutherford said he doubted that Hanna would be shot if returned to Egypt. Cold weather helps workers clean oil spill EDMONTON (CP) Cold weather is helping workers clean up an undetermined amount of oil which spilled from a broken flow line at Im- perial Oil's field 20 miles south- west of Edmonton, a company spokesman said today. The oil is collecting in a small ravine and staying on the surface because the ground is frozen hard, he said. About barrels of oil have been recovered so far. The spokesman said it was impossible to estimate how much oil had spilled by the time the break was discover- ed Sunday because the oil was lying under a heavy snow cov- er. The well had been shut down last Friday night. All the men and trucks avail- able are working around the clock on the clean-up opera- tion, the Imperial spokesman said. The work is expected to becompletedby Thursday night. NOW Monthly 209 Our good name is your guarantee of factual advertising. Simpsons-Sears handles all regular, local deliveries, free of charge.
