Six arrested on airline ticket ring By BOB DOUGLAS OTTAWA (CP) An interna- tional groundswell of support is developing behind a proposal aimed at eliminating some un- rier-the-counier practices in tho trans-Atlantic c h a r t e r flight market. The proposal, being advanced In various forms by Britain, Canada and the U.S., would re- place the affinity charter now accepted internationally. European countries are showing interest. The idea was discussed at a Paris meeting of European and North American civil aviation authorities in February. It is ex- pected to be on the agenda at liie next meeting planned for Ottawa in the autumn. Basically, the proposed rule would allow seats on a charter flight to be sold individually. Passengers no longer would liaye to be members of a spe- cific organization for six months prior to departure. It is argued that this proposal would get around dishonest practices that have grown up around club memberships to satisfy the affinity charter rule. RULES HAS CRITICS The affinity rule has been criticized by Transport Minister Don Jamieson and J. Pick- ersgill, transport commission president. It has created head- aches or airlines, charter oper- ators and regulatory authori- ties. Mr. Piekersgill has said the rule is almost unenforceable. It has encouraged bootlegging oE empty seats in charter flights with some charter brokers pocketing kickbacks for selling the seats. Airlines and regulatory au- thorities find it hard to ensure that all members of the charter group have indeed been mem- bers for six months when Uia flight leaves. One traveller in London in January said he had been told to join the Shakespearean De- bating Society on the day the charter flight was to fly to New York. The day before he had joined the Park Preservation Society of New York in an at- Defunct insurance company victim of its own success kers, who then sell the scats and receive a kickback from the charier group. The proposed replacement nile could be easier to cntorce, It has been suggested that in submitting their list of passen- gers, the travel agent could in- clude extra names. This could be up to 15 per cent of the total. This would allow some per- sons to drop out in the three- month waiting period before tho flight departs. But only persons on the list would be allowed to hoard tho aircraft. They would be identi- fied by their passports. The illegal practice of selling seats to unauthorized persons within the waiting period would bo wiped out. fine for misleading advertising EDMONTON (CP) Alverla Giftwares Ltd. was found guil- ty here in the appellate divi- sion of the Alberta Supreme Court on three charges of mis- leading advertising. It was fined The charges related to three advertisements for sidewalk bicycles in a company catal- ogue. Tlie charges were dis- missed by District Court Judge J. S. Cormack last December but appealed by the crown. Mr. Justice J. M. Cairns said EDMONTON (CP) Rocky Mountain Lite Insurance Co., whose collapse was announced tills week, had operated iu a razzmatazz fashion, charging aggressively into a tough market. Monthly sales rallies featured buglers playing and sales agents and their wives responding loudly with shouts of "charge." The hard-sell policy appeared to pay off initially. After only three years of op- eration, the firm had by captured three per cent of tho Alberta Insurance market, a feat others in the business con- sidered remarkable. But some in Ihe business say the company may have been a victim of its own success, com- ing on too fast, too soon. In 1968 Rocky Mountain Life failed to find a means to raise a significant amount of capital to meet operating expenses willed followed Ihe large in- crease in sales. They had to sell some of their insurance to an- other company n year later to raise equity capital. This meant that Rocky Moun- tain was signing away any po- tential profits from those pol- icies. Isnuronce profits como in the long-term, not immedi- ately. WENT DOWNHILL Business went downhill from there, ending last Tuesday when Attorney General Mcrv Leitch told the Alberta legislature that the government was cancelling allowed by the Alberta Isnur- ance Act, the minister said. An associated company, Ho- moco International Associates, received permission to sell stocks on the Toronto Exchange but they failed in attempts to raise the ?1 million which would have been used to buy shares of Rocky Mountain and restore its financial posi- tion, Mr. Lcilch said. It was midnight (or the Cin- derella company. Insurance sources say the formative years are particular' ly difficult for an Insurance company.

District Attorney Frank logan of Manhattan announced Thursday that a joint federal and local investigation into the "source of illicit revenues of or- ganized criminal elements" had led to the arrest of six persons since last weekend. Seized were hundreds of blank airline tickets, 35 plates with airline imprints, assorted travel agency plates and two "invalua- ble" validating machines, Hogan said. The suspects were described as members of an international multi-million-dollar-a-year rack- et that sold plane tickets to the public at half price and gave tickets to narcotics and stolen-securities couriers in the undenvorld. Hogan estimated that the air- line industry loses million annually through stolen and forged tickets "with the prob- lem complicated by the fact that the tickets may be re- deemed for cash." One suspect was held without bail. Bail for the oiher five ranged from 5500 to A hearing was scheduled for Juno 8. information given to prospec- tive purchasers was mislead- _, "having in mind what was reported in the catalogue." The catalogue said that wherever possible the manu- facturers' retail prices would be quoted, along with the Al- berta Giftware prices. in the three cases, the manu- facturers' retail price quoted was found to be higher than the actual manufacturers' prices. The quoted price had indicated to purchasers they were getting merchandise at more of a reduclion than was actually the case. tempt to get an earlier flight to New York. A Toronto charter broker said last July that he charged 515 a customer for finding a charter flight on short notice. He said that out of the fee came the cus- tomer's membership dues in whatever club he joined for the trip.

Speaking to a meeting of news editors from tha three Prairie provinces, Mr. Sykes said there is distrust on both sides between government and business "but no one seems to he identifying the simple fact that government is using public money to intervene more and more directly in competitive in- vestment. Mayor Sykes told the meeting of representatives from 34 ra- dio and television stations that hundreds of millions of dollars of public money is being lost in these government invest- ments. Favors union of churches LENNOX VILLE, Que. (CP) Rev. Wilbur K. Howard of Ottawa, newly-elected president of the Montreal-Ottawa confer- ence of the United Church of Canada, says he favors union of the Anglican and United churches Mr. Howard, the first black ever to hoad the conference, was elected at the conference's 48th annual meeting which ends today. He succeeds Mrs. Enid Wasspr of Valois, Que., first woman to serve as president. Both Mr. Howard and Rev. A. B. Lovelace of Lennoxville, president-designate, told the meeting Wednesday they dis- agreed with a stated belief by Anglican Bishop C. B. Snell o'f Toronto that merger of tha United and Anglican churches is doomed. Mr. Lovelace said the union would come eventually but should not be imposed from above. It should come from the grass roots of the church organ- izations and there must be no deadline. the firm's operating licence. He said the government itself will take over those policies that are not reinsured or co- insured with other companies and guarantee to the policy- holders "that they will receive all of the benefits they wero entitled to receive by the terms of their contracts." Shareholders in Rocky Moun- tain and associated companies receive no such protection, however. Insurance company sources Raid it was the first time in Ca- nadian history that a govern- ment has had to take over an Insurance firm. In every other instance, they said, another insurance firm had stepped in and purchased the policies of the failing com- pany. In this case, however, there were no takers for all the policies. About two-thirds of the policies were taken over by various other companies, how- ever.

"Who wrote that stuff about me driving like a bloody man- Mr. Gaglardi demanded of reporters. Asked whether the charge was true, the minister replied: "No way. Jumpin' Jupiter." He said there was "plenty of room" for the other car to get off the road when he passed the truck. Mr. Gaglardi also complain- ed that his remark earlier that "I was horn dangerous, I live dangerous and I'm going to dio dangerous" was made as a joke. A Wiretapping hit by judge PHILADELPHIA (AP) federal judge has declared un- constitutional a 1968 law allow- ing wiretapping on grounds that it puts "Ihe privacy of every citizen in jeopardy." Judge Joseph Lord 111 of the U.S. district court made the nil- ing here in connection with a motion by seven defendants in an alleged million gambling case who sought to suppress ev- idence gathered by electronic su; veillance. Judge Lord said the federal wiretapping law is "unconstitu- tional on its face" because it violates the Fourth Amendment of the U.S. constitution, which guarantees citizens privacy against unwarranted searches and intrusions. "The privacy of every citizen is in jeopardy if we become a nation which sanctions the indis- criminate use of secret elec- tronic searches by the govern- the judge said.
