The allowances were cut af- ter the families in the area re- cutback comes into.effect ceived meat from a federal- government supervised hunt in Wood Buffalo National Park. Liner sails into new Hie PORT EVERGLADES, Fla. (AP) Rusting and slowed by age, the retired ocean liner Queen Elizabeth pulled away from the docks Wednesday to sail into a new life as a floating university. The once-proud liner eased into the channel with the help of tugs to start- a 15.000-mile hop- scotch voyage for Hong Kong. Some 90 Chinese and English sailors were reported aboard the Queen for her scheduled voyage to ports in the West In- dies; Cape Town, Sfcuth Africa, and Singapore. The vessel was re- tired from active service by the Cunard line and settled in Flor- ida as a tourist attraction two years ago. She flopped in that role and drove the men who bought her from Cunard into bankruptcy. Chinese shipping magnate Y. Tung then bought her at auc- tion for million and re- named her Seawise. "The whole point is that wej meet our responsibilities by pro- viding the basic needs of the people." he told a news confer- ence. Mr. Sneaker also announced the establishment of a province- wide network of welfare appeal boards and the continuation of a a month grant to the women's shelter in Edmon- ton. Asked about the buffalo meat issue, Mr. Speaker said the number of families affected has been grossly inflated by some sources. Only 30 families in the area receive social assistance, he said. Another 25 heads of tarn ilies are fullv employed. Of the 26 families who were not affected by the reduction, he said 12 are on permanent assistance because the head of e family is deemed uncmplov- ble. He said he presumed the oth- r 14 families could count the uffalo meat as part of an a1-- income 'hich is permitted before the Mr. Speaker denied sugges- tions that the department's pol- icy will encourage recipients to slay on welfare. Stan Daniels, president of the Metis Association of Alberta, has charged that it was only the first four iamilte who went to the social development office for their allowance that were cut "because of the reaction ot the people and because the gov- enunent realized they were go- ing to get coverage (in the "They've backed down be- cause of this pressure and pub- lic opinion. They have in fact changed the poBcy." Oil fire bill hits million NEW ORLEANS, La. CAP) The Shell Oil Co. said Wednes- day that an ll-week-old fire at its platform 10 miles off the Louisiana coast has cost the company nearly million. A company spokesman said the cost of killing the wells set ablaze by the Dec. 1 explosion about daily with no prospects of bringing the fire under control until mid-March. The loss to the platform alone estimated at million. The platform, long since melted to the level of the Gulf of Mexico, had connections with 22 oil and gas wells. Ten caught fire and the others apparently were shut off by automatic safety valves. Mobile rigs have drilled relief wells to kill off five wells. By the time the other five are brought under control Shell ex- pects to spend another mil- lion. Sanctions imposed on S.

Greyhound stock sold Ail-ports placed on the alert LONDON (AP) Interpol has placed eight airports in Eu- rope and the Middle East on the alert for three armed men who might try to hijack aircraft or kidnap diplomats. A cable from the international police organization's Montreal office said the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, the Arab guerrilla group that hi- jacked four airliners in Septem- ber, was behind the operation. The Interpol cable said the potential hijackers were a man named von Essen, a West Ger- man using an Austrian pass- port, and two men holding Jor- danian passports. The message was sent to the airports in Beirut, Madrid, Paris, Home, Milan, Lisbon, Amsterdam and London. The West German civil avia- tion authority issued a similar alert Sunday in Bonn, but a spokesman in Beirut for the Popular Front said the scare was "f a b r i c a t e d by Israeli agents."
