Environment Minister Jack Davis, In replying to a question at a. news conference, said today he cannot see much objection to one or two flights for test purposes but the Cana- dian government has readied no policy as yet on regular su- personic use of Canadian terri- tory. The matter, he said, is still under investigation from an en- viron mental viewpoint.

By CY FOX LONDON (CP) The most oignant Canadian event in Lon-on for many years serv] Tuesday as hundreds of persons of all ages and races gathered [or a memorial service to the late Newfoundland-born broadcaster, Margot Davies. Former premier Joseph Smallwood, Canadian high commissioner .1. H. Warren and Charles Curran, director-general of the BBC, were in the congregation at St. Martin-in-the-Fields Church in Trafalgar Ssuare for the service. Miss D a v i e s, who began broadcasting to Newfoundland from London more than 30 years ago, was called the province's "unofficial representative in London" by Mr. Curran. Rev. Austen Williams, vicar of the historic church, said "we thank God for all that made her a child of London." DIED MAY 20 The service for Miss Dames, who died May 20, proved to be a major reunion of Newfoundlanders currently living in or visiting Britain. Mr. Smallwood stood on the church steps after the held tc mony, shaking hands and chatting with numerous veterans of the Newfoundland broadcc Many settled here after the Second World War and had known Miss Davies as broadcaster or hostess to military personnel from the island before 1945. BBC personalities helped fill the church. Later, they recalled their associations with Miss Da-vies, best known for her weekly interview program, Calling Newfoundland. Some of the ex-servicemen wore caribou badges, emblematic of their memberslup in Newfoundland uniEs and reminiscent of the Caribou Club where Newfoundlanders gathered during the war, only a short distance from this serene church. Reading the lesson, Mr. Smallwood movingly said: "Behold, how great a matter a litlle fire kindles." There were references to the charity fcr which Miss Davies was responsible, and Mr. Cur ran said she had often been having given away al her salary to needy Londoners. Newfoundland is a place, said the BBC chief, the only community where "I found a positive pleasure in the use of the term colony." Mr. Curran ciled the ancient link between Newfoundland, Britain's oldest colony, and this country. "Margot Davies was an embodiment of that he said. change helps HCMP L L 0 Y D MIN STER Sask.
