Terry Lee, the Dragon Lady, Hot-Shot Charlie and the other characters of Terry and the Pirates will retire Feb. 25 after 39 years. Arthur Laro, president and editor of the Chicago Tribune- New York News Syndicate, which distributes the comi". strip, said the decision to cancel the series was made when the artist, George Wunder, announced his retirement.

But more than 100 papers still carry "Terry," he said. Wunder, who took over the strip from Milt Caniff in 1947, said the Vietnam war had a lot to do with the end of the comic feature, although Terry was never assigned to Vietnam. He said the fighter pilot's image had changed. MAY UNITE EDMONTON (CP) - The Society of Industrial Accountants of Canada and the Certified General Accountants are exploring the desirability of amalgamating. In a joint news release, the two groups said a committee has been assigned the work of developing all facets of the study. SIAC has a membership of about 7,000 while the- CGA has a membership of about 4,000 in Canada. Tough laws needed STOCKHOLM (AP) - Two years of terrorism by exiles in Sweden have convinced a government commission that tough laws are needed. But many Swedes fear harsh measures will endanger political freedom for all foreigners. The commission is proposing to parliament laws that would permit police to crack down on foreigners suspected of terrorism by bugging their telephones and searching the suspects and their homes. The laws would be effective for one year. The main targets would be Croatian Ustashi terrorists,, who in the last two years have broken into a Yugoslav consulate in Sweden and herd staff members captive, assassinated a Yugoslav ambassador to Sweden and hijacked an airplane to Spain to spirit away two men held in the ambassador's murder. The two defendants in the murder and the three hijackers still are being held in Spain pending an extradition decision. The Ustashi terrorists are heirs of a Fascist organization that ruled Croatia for the Nazis during the Second World War. They want to pull Croatia out of the Yugoslav union and make it independent. Opposition to the proposed anti-terrorist laws in Sweden has included a demonstration in Stockholm by 1,800 persons. Some officials fear that the measures might be used against all political refugees in Sweden. Artificial caviar produced MOSCOW (AP) - The Russians reported today they have developed a technique to mass-produce an artificial caviar. This is credited to research at a Moscow organization dedicated to creation of substitute foodstuffs. Real caviar is scarce, due largely to pollution of spawning grounds where sturgeon females produce the eggs. Special ships here sell fresh caviar for $45.75 a pound - if you have hard currency to pay for it. In the West the product brings around $80 a pound. The news agency Tass says more than 100 foreign firms already are bidding for the substitute. How it's produced is a state secret. But Tass said a combination of albumins and poly-sakharides-organic proteins and carbohydrates-go into it. Trying to invade CP Air Territory West MPs irked at Air Canada By VICTOR MACKIE Herald Ottawa Bureau OTTAWA - A determined drive behind the scenes by the government-owned Air Canada to invade the Pacific, and other regions assigned by government policy to the privately owned Canadian Pacific Air, has aroused the ire and the opposition of several western members of parliament. The straggle going on quietly but strenuously between the two Canadian air carriers for new routes, has intensified in recent weeks, it was learned today from informed government sources. The decision still has to be made by the cabinet as to which Canadian carrier .will get the right to fly into China. CP Air claims it is entitled to the China route but Air Canada is making a determined drive to get the right to launch the Canadian commercial air service between Canada and China. The Canadian government has obtained the right for a Canadian air carrier to fly to Milan, Italy. This, is in return for allowing Alitalia the right to serve Toronto in addition to its flights to Montreal. CP Air expects to get the right to fly to Milan as "southern Europe" was assigned to it under federal government policy. However Air Canada wants to get the right to fly into Milan in northern Italy. CP Air is fighting against any government move to open up Milan to Air Canada on the grounds that this would be' a serious invasion of the spheres it was assigned under government policy, and would drastically reduce the revenues of both airlines. MP's from British Columbia, and some other western members, are inclined to side with CP Air in its struggle against encroachment on its spheres of operation by the government owned airline. Senator Arthur Laing, former cabinet minister, who was elevated to the senate when the last parliament was dissolved, is an outspoken advocate of CP Air. The privately owned airline has its headquarters in Vancouver. "We have two flag carriers in Canada," he said today. "Historically they have each been assigned a sphere for operations or a sphere of influence around the world, which must not be tampered with in any way."

LONDON (CP) - With the government's decision recently to halt the experimental hov-ertrain project, Britain's mil future seems committed for years to the basics of Stephenson's 19th century system-steel wheels on steel tracks. However, research on the revolutionary linear motor, which formed the basis of the wheel-less hovertrain project, will continue. British Rail (BR) has been granted a $1 million government grant to develop magnetic sxispension and Hawker Sidde-ley, the giant engine firm, has been given twice this amount for research into low-speed linear motors which the company hopes to sell, in an adapted form, to Toronto's urban transport system. Work began on the hovertrain six years ago, using a transverse flux e ngine to develop speeds of up to 300 miles an hour. At the time it was hoped the hovertrain would be in use by now. , LACK OF CUSTOMERS But while the project has barely reached the prototype stage, an added setback has been the lack of potential customers since BR opposed the new system due to the costly new track the hovertrain would need. BR feels this is only good economics in a country where there is already a dense network of existing tracks. Also, the cost of providing hovertrain track on a major route such as Manchester to London-150 miles-would add up to $360 million. BR's own advanced passenger train (APT) will be able to use the existing tracks with only slight alteration necessary. While the APT's top speed of 180 miles an hour cannot match that of the hovertrain, BR believes its new system will provide an adequate service for the next 15 years at least. Announcing the closure of the hovertrain project recently Aerospace Minister Michael He-seltine said that in view of the APT developments "Britain would not be able to tolerate a dupliction of traVport systems broadly similar." Heseltine added that while the Try Before You Buy UP TO 30-DAY TRIAL ON YOUR DOCTOR'S RECOMMENDATION 20MAICO SMITH-JONES HEARING AID SERVICE RIPLEY OPTICAL 610 3rd Ave. S. Phone 328-5447. APT now is in the final stages of development, the hovertrain project, which has cost the government $12 million so far, "has no hope of competing with similar French, German, Japanese and American systems." In theory the hovertrain is suspended above the track by the magnetic field, the magnets being driven by the linear motor. Calley sentence upheld WASHINTGON (AP) - The United States Army Court of Military Review upheld Friday the c o n v i c t i o n of Lieut. William L. Calley in the 1968 My Lai massacre of South Vietnamese civilians and approved the sentence of 20 years at hard labor. The army announced the court found that Calley "personally participated in, and ordered subordinates to participate in, the mass summary execution of unarmed, unresisting men, women and children in the hamlet of My Lai, Republic of (South) Vietnam, on March 16, 1968." Galley originally was sentenced to prison for life after conviction by a court-martial at Fort Benning, Ga., on charges of premeditated murder of "not less than 22 Vietnamese" and of assault with intent to murder a Vietnamese child. The sentence was reduced to 20 years in August, 1971. The army said Calley may ask the U.S. Court of Military Appeals for a further review of his case. Humane society admits women HAMILTON (CP) - For the first time in its 78 year history, the Royal Canadian Humane Association will allow women to be appointed to the board of governors. "jln keeping with the times there's no reason why we shouldn't have' women on the board," President Stephen Fletcher said today. "I just rk-n't think it ever came up before." The association makes awards for bravery and life saving throughout Canada. He said CP Air has the biggest single payroll in British Columbia and is the largest single industry in that west coast province. When the federal cabinet starts tampering with the spheres of operation for CP Air it is a blow to the west, the senator warned. Western MP's have heard that Yves Pratte, the chairman of Air Canada and Transport Minister Jean Marchand are close friends. As a result they view with suspicion reports emanating from Air Canada that suggest it is expecting to move into areas now reserved by CP Air. Mr. Pratte recently gave an interview in which he said that tlie federal government decision as to which of the two Canadian carriers will serve Milan, the northern Italian centre is a question that is fundamental "to the future of this institution (Air Canada)." MP's from the west have never forgotten that Air Canada with its headquarters now based in Montreal moved its operations from Winnipeg to the Quebec metropolis. The final shift of the overhaul maintenance base from Winnipeg to Montreal was a blow to the Manitoba city that it will take a long time forgetting. "That was a struggle for 3ods between the west and Quebec," said Senator Laing "and Montreal won.'

The policy gives northern Europe, and the Caribbean to Air Canada. CP Air was assigned southern Europe, part of Latin America and the Far East. CP Air was also granted the right to continue to fly into Amsterdam. Air Canada officials feel they got the "short end of the stick" in this division of the world under the governments air policy. lliifiBRGs. AUCTION NOTICE PLACE 4410 Caigary Trail Edmonton, Alta.
