The transport department of- ficial said today that the sala- Jury suggests warning signs in ski areas TRAIL, B.C. (CP) A coro- ner'i Jury Wednesday suggest- ed use of warning signs to indi- cate ski areas where snowslide hazards exist. The suggestion followed an Inquest into the death of Sven Kjemperud, 23, of Spokane, Wash., buried in a snowslide at Granite Mountain near Ross- land, B.C., while skiing Dec. 23. The Jury recommended that a study be made to determine if it is feasible to post signs at ski lodges and the top of ski lifts warning that a snowslide could occur in hazardous areas. It also said permanent warn- ing signs should be erected and maintained at points of en- try into hazardous slide areas. The jury found Mr. Kjem- perdu's death was accidental end due to suffocation. ries of the 91 pilots who guide ocean vessels between Quebec City and Les Escoumins, 110 miles downstream, will rise about this year. Salaries will vary between and annually. This makes the pilots in this section among the highest paid in the world. The pay increase was one of a number of matters settled late last week after pilots walked off the job to protest what they said were "dangerous" cargo over- loads. The agreement has been signed by transport department, pilot and employer representa- tives but must still be ratified by the cabinet. But Dr. Camu said cabinet ratification is cer- tain, Capt. Michel Dussault, the transport department's director of pilotage, said the average cost of pilotage fees for an ocean vessel with a draught of 25 feet is for a trip into and out of the St. Lawrence- Great Lakes system, using a single pilot. Dr. Camu said two other pilot demands have been agreed to by the department and the em- ployers. Ships will carry two pilots as a rule In UK winter navigation season. They are required to carry one under current regula- tions. The two pilots will be paid the same fees. Previously, the sec- ond pilot was paid less if a ship carried two pilots. Bhutto delays decision LARKANA, Pakistan (AP) President Zulfikar Ali Bhutto said today he will have one more meeting with Sheik bur Rahman Friday before al- lowing the Bengali leader to re- turn to Bangladesh. Bhutto told reporters he will fly to Rawalpindi to meet with the sheik, who has been in cus- tody since last March, but the Pakistani president refused to divulge when Mujibur would be freed. Earlier UN sources had re- ported indications that the sheik, proclaimed president ol Bangladesh, would leave today for New Delhi on the first leg of bis return home. Bhutto, who became president Dec. 20 after President Yahya Khan lost the war with India, has promised to release Mujib unconditionally. Eight perish in hotel fire TOPPENISH, Wash.

Maided and boukd by JoMph E Satmo Sow Ltd., Waterloo, Ont Supersonic airliner use still blocked by Canada By DAVE McINTOSH OTTAWA (CP) Canada has slowed lo a snail's pace, if It has not killod outright, Anglo- French plans for use of the Con- corde supersonic commercial airliner on routes to North America. Officials said Wednesday that despite pleas here by the Con- corde people a month ago, Can- ada has not budged from Its position that there will be no su- personic flying over this coun- try. Supersonic flying creates a sonic boom corridor on the ground under Hie plane and Ca- ladian officials fear damage to the environment and built-up ireas, not to mention scaring .he daylights out of the popula- tion in the sonic wave corridor. Officials said the transport de- >artment has no objection to the Honcorde flying over Canada slower than the speed of sound. But subsonic flight would wreck the whole purpose of the Anglo-French aircraft venture make Concorde ravel little if any faster than by ordinary jet. On a flight from London to Montreal, the distance over Canada is some miles. Frights from Europe and Asia to North America by the short northern routes cover vast stretches of Canada. HAVE TO HIT ARCTIC Moreover, any Concorde lights from Europe to Asia over North America would havo to cross the Canadian and officials here are just as concerned about the potential sonic danger to wildlife as to the populated areas farther south. The Concorde makers have discussed the possibility of sparsely Inhabited regions over which sonic-boom flyways could, be mapped. Australia has agreed tenta- tively to such a Canada will neve nothing to do with it. Air Canada has delivery posi- tions for four Concordes. Devel- oping the aircraft hat coat Brit- ain end France some billion with testing still In progress. But Air Canada has signed no contracts to buy any Concordes. The first operators of the Con- corde likely will be Air France, British Overseas Airways Corp., Pan-American and Japan Air Lines. But Pan-Am end JAL are likely lo take hard second looks at Concorde plans if Canad continues to deny its air apace to supersonic commertia travel, officials said. There is no indication that Ca nadian policy will change. When plans still were goln ahead for a U.S. superaoni transport some U.S. offlda said many supencric route would be over Canada. They gol a protest rocke from the transport department in Ottawi, that still is reverber- ating.

Without mentioning columnist Jack Anderson's disclosure of Nixon administration strategy papers on the India-Pakistan war, Chairman Edward Hebert of the House of Representatives armed services committee an- nounced Wednesday a major in- quiry by his group into proper classification and protection of national security secrets. Anderson reported that Ken- neth B. Keating, U.S. ambassa- dor to India, had, in a secret ca- blegram, challenged Nixon ad- ministration made to justify U.S. policy toward India and Pakistan. Other disclosures in the Wash- ington Post today eaid Keating cabled Washington as early as last April that Pakistan was on the verge of breaking up and that separatist came for East limited potential and massive problems, is probably emerging as an independent country."
