Paul Getty calls It "a blessed relief." Valentine makers call it a dis- aster. Businessmeii call it an in- convenience. And countless Britons call it a holiday from worry. It's Britain's nationwide postal strike which has kept the mail undelivered for the iast 24 "It's a blessed relief from days. The slots on bright red mail- boxes have been sealed shut since Jan. 20, when more than mailmen and postal workers walked off the job de- manding 15-per-cent pay raises. But the strike has aroused sur- prisingly few complaints from the cbfp-in-the-street. begging Getty told in- quirers.

Wardair protects flights OTTAWA (CP) Wardair Canada Ltd. announcere yester- day that it has obtained an in- surance policy to protect ad- vance payments made by cus- tomers on overseas charter flights. The Edmonton based com- pany said in a news release that the insurance policy is effective immediately and covers all charter contracts to be entered into by Wardair. The policy, along with other security arrangements, has been accepted by .the Canadian transport commission. The commission ordered War- dair to provide a performance bond or similar guarantee under which prepayments would be se- cured by a bonding or insurance company. Wardair would not have been permitted to operate overseas charter flights beyond Feb. 15 if it did not meet this require- ment. EXTEND DEADLINE Wardair appealed the decision to Transport Minister Don Ja- mieson and the transport com- mission Tuesday extended the deadline to March 1. The com- pany had askea that the com- mission set aside the order until the appeal was decided. Wardair said Wednesday that it is still challenging the com- mission ruling but it decided to buy the insurance to remove any doubts that it will continue overseas charter flights after Feb. 15. In its original ruling, the com- mission said it was demanding the performance bond from Wardair because of trust-ac- count deficiencies. Under current regulations, non-scheduled charter carriers must desposit all prepayments in trust accounts. Half the amount may be withdrawn by carrier after delivering a charter group to its destination and the other half when the group has been returned. The new requirement for Wardair is expected to be ap- plied to the entire industry later this year. Air carriers were ad- vised" of the proposed new reg- ulation last fall. lowever, complain that busi- ness has fallen by 50 per cent, and mail order firms have been rippled financially by the strike.

Some small businesses are in trouble because they aren't re- ceiving payments through the mail, but big firms don't seem alarmed by the stoppage.
