The five amendments consi- dered Monday appeared to be defeated by a voice vote but a recorded vote was deferred until a later date. One change, proposed by Max Bailsman would broaden the scope of the screening agency to consider so- cial and political, as well as economic implications of a take- over. HARDLY WORTH PASSING Without weighing those added factors, Mr. Bailsman said, the bill would be a farce hardly worth passing. "We would be right back where we were before except that the government would have legislation to justify what it has always is, permit un- limited foreign, ownership in Canada." Industry Minister Jean-Luc Pepin said the bill must confine itself to essentially economic considerations to achieve the goal of bringing significant ben- efit to Canada.

Lowell Elliott, 61, a farmer, stumbled across a sealed can- vas mail bag with the ransom money in a soybean field Mon- day. The 45-pound bag had burled a couple of Inches in an opeo field about 250 feet from a county road. COUNT A count at FBI headquarters in Indianapolis found of the ransom. Authorities said the was in a sepa- rate package and was still miss- ing. However, police in St. Louis said the hijacker gave to the two stewardesses as a tip and they turned it over to the FBI. Five hours after Elliott's dis- covery, Ronald E. Miller, 22, uncovered in his cornfield a sub-machine-gun the hijacker is believed to have used when he commandeered the American Boeing 727 Friday night shortly after it left St. Louis for Tulsa, Okla. James Martin, FBI agent la charge in Indiana, said the gun and money were on a line that coincided with the plane's course after the hijacker or- dered it from St. Louis to To- ronto. Martin said the search was narrowed to an area five milei long and a mile wide, much of it flat farmland with thickets of trees. An FBI spokesman said passenger not accounted for gave the name Robert Wilson but it "could well be fictitious." Weather and road report Sunrise Wednesday Sunset H L Pre.
