But we were s busy affixing blame I forgot t say 'welcome back' and as ormer member of the jury would like to set the record Parsons said. "The jury commended David Kootook and Judith Hill for cou- rageous acts and dedication, but through an oversight forgot about the man who, though ap- prehensive about making the trip, accepted the risk in an at- tempt to save someone else's life. "Surely it is a rare man of iron who lives through his or- deal." Mr. Parsons said in a sense blame for the accident must "be accepted by all of us in the north, because the code of the north, considered above the law, is a part ot our heritage as bush pilots and northerners." ng gloom as strikes for mor pay by train drivers and gi iVorlrers continue.

BUENOS AIRES (Renter) Peronist presidential candidate Hector Campora emerged the popular favorite in Argentina's first general elections in almost a decade. But it appeared today would fall short of the ma- iority needed for outright vic- :ory. That would mean a run-off poll within 30 days of Sunday's elections, held to restore demo- cratic parliamentary power and end almost seven years of di- rect military rule. Official returns with only about one million votes counted gave Dr. Campora about 42 per cent of the total. Unofficial re- sults with about 80 per cent oi the vote counted gave Dr Campora almost four million votes, or 43.3 per cent, while his closest rival, Hicardo Baldin ol the radical party, polled two million votes, or 22.5 per cent There are seven other candi dates in Ihe race. 1243 lower-house depulies, 1OSCS Observers said thai even if I provincial governors, numerous Weather and road report Campora, hand-picked can- delate of former strongman president Juan Peron, failed to win an over-all majority, he would almost cerlainly get the largest individual vote in any Argentine election since Peron himself won just over 50 per cent for his second term in 1951. Four years later, Peron was ousted by the military and sent into exile, but he has continued to influence on his country's politics ever since. His Juslicialist movement named Dr. Campora, a 63-year- old former dentist, on his in- structions after Peron was barred from running for the presidency by a residence quali- fication dictated by the military junta, led by soldier- pro5ident Alejandro Also being elected are a vice president, 69 national senators, provincial senators and more :han municipal officers. 56 persons face charges BELFAST (AP) Fifty-six people were serious crimes charged with in the first six Diary of Lieut.
