Kmo Okamoto, 24, lone survi- vor of three Japanese terrorists who attacked the airport crowd -with machine-guns, is reported to have been in Montreal from November, 1971, to March 4. The Osaka native is behevet to have stayed at the Airport Hilton hotel at Dorval at least part ot that time. Dorval police have no record ol Okainoto's slay in the area. "This would indicate he was 'clean' and was not picked up or questioned about Us activities one officer reported. However, RCMP, working In co-operatUu with Interpol and the Law Enforcement Intelli- gent Unit, an international corp of investigators specializing in checking foreign travellers, are looking into Okamoto's activi- ties while in Canada. The RCMP is attempting to establish whether Okamoto had any contact witii the FLQ or other subversive groups in the Montreal area. First indications are that Oka- moto, who travelled on a Japa- nese passport using his right name, did not contact the Japa- nese legation hi Montreal. A spokesman at the legation said further checks would be made to determine the purpose of Okamoto's visit to Montreal. RCMP are attempting to talk with anyone who may have come in contact with Okamoto during his stay in Montreal. Meanwhile, security has been tightened at Montreal Interna- tional Airport and flights to the Middle East have been delayed by hand searches of baggage checked aboard aircraft or car- ried by the passengers. The number of metal detec- tors used has been Increased in an attempt to find weapons con- cealed in luggage or carried by passengers. forth from his crane. But usually he doesn't worry about such minute detail. Right now he is concentrating on helping knock down the old Toronto Star building in down- town Toronto. For 17 years, Don has been smashing his way through build- ings, theatres and stadiums. The 22-storey Star building is Hie tallest one ever knocked down in Canada. Don, 39, is one of Hie glamor boys of the demolilion business. His skills attract large crowds of businessmen and secretaries during lunch hour. And he is something to watch. In the cab of his crane there is a lever for ups and downs, a lever for lefts and rights, a spe- cial hoisting lever, and a fool pedal to brake the ball as the cable snaps taut as well as a pedal to feed gas into the ma chine. Don can work all the levers and light a cigarette between moves. He can hit a wall to make it fall inward or outward. He can swing the ball in graceful S- arcs, destroying as much build- ing on the way back as he does on the way out. was filming a docurr.eritary on demolition several years ago he director wanted to open the show with a wrecking ball dra- in a 11 c a 11 y cracking off the 'girls" and "boys" signs from the tops of tvw school doors. Don performed .masterfully: crunch, crunch. No retakes. On one project Don had to remove a series of pillars in a basement. He rolled his crane to an opening, then "flipped" the ball Inside and "bounced it along the floor, as one would bounce a bowling ball down an alley. The ball skittered into a pillar and knocked it down. Then he dragged the ball back, flipped it inside again and knocked out another pillar. There are dangers to the job though. Under too much stress the boom could snap. Flying ol brick and glass occasion- ally slam into the crane's cab. Then there is always the pos- sibility that the ball, which can weigh as much as three tons, could come hurtling back into the tab and squash the driver. It takes a lot of nerve to da this job. LIKE PLAYING POOL But Don is modest about his skill. "There's a knack to he says. "It's like playing pool' Some guys have tha knack, some guys don't." Don has it.
