Informants said Monday Mrs. Gandhi herself has taken a per- sonal interesMn her capacity as head of all intelligence the controversy over Guru Maharaj Ji, known to his devotees as "lord of the "prince of peace" and "the perfect master." A government official said In- dian diplomatic missions in countries where the guru's Di- vine Light Mission operates, in- cluding the United States and Britain, have been asked to in- vestigate financial aspects of the movement. The government, he added, ivants to determine whether the mission is violating Indian law, particularly regarding restric- tions on Indian nationals having bank accounts and capital as- sets abroad. The controversy began when the guru returned to India last Tuesday in a jumbo jetliner filled with 350 American dis- a suitcase contain- ing in money, watches and jewels. Customs impounded the suit- case. The watches and jewelry, a U.S. devotee said, were gifts for the guru, his mother and broth- ers and for about ma- hatmas, the priests of the Di- vine Light Mission. "This was supposed to be like a birthday he said, add- ing that the devotees had come here mainly to celebrate the birth anniversary of the guru's late father, who founded the Di- vine Light Mission in India in 1860. The guru exported the move- ment to the West in the spring of 1971, going first to Britain and the United States. By JOHN BEST OTTAWA (CP) A carefully nurtured Canadian to draw Cuba away from its position as the world's No. 1 haven for ae- rial hijackers may have been helped by the weekend drama of the hijacked DC-9, informed sources said Xonday. Officials here were watching to see how Cuba deals with the three men who seized the South- ern Airways jet Friday night out of Birmingham, Ala., and orced it to hopscotch across America before finally anding at Havana Sunday. The 27 exhausted passengers and four crew members were returned to the United States. The hijackers were arrested by 2uban police. One Ottawa official said he hoped the incident would, im- press on Cuban authorities "the necessity of dealing with these situations in a better manner than in the past." He said Canada still hasn't received a response from Cuba to its request for the extradition of Patrick Dolan Critton, 25, of New York, wanted for the hi- jacking of an Air Canada jet- liner last Dec. 26. The request is more than eight months old. Canada hasn't sent to Havana a fol- lowup, but Canadian diplomats have raised the matter orally with Cuban representatives here and in Havana. NO RESULT YET "They (the Cubans) say they're thinking about it, bul there's been no tangible result.'' Nor has Canada received i reply to an invitation extended to Cuba last spring to send a delegation here to discuss a new extradition treaty between the two countries, explicitly covering the crime of hijacking The present treaty, written in 1904, does not cover hijacking Canadian authorities are seek ing Critton's extradition or charges of kidnapping, extortion and armed as extraditable offences under the treaty. Cuba would be setting a prec- edent if it agreed to Canada's application. It hasn't extradited the hijackers of any of the nu- merous planes that have landed at Havana airport in the last decade. Signing of the extradition treaty also would be a break- hrough. Canadian authorities lave expressed hope that it might serve as a model for reaties between Cuba and other countries. BOATS INCLUDED It might even be a start to- wards Cuban acceptance of multilateral conventions aimed at stamping out aerial hijack- ing, Ottawa officials have said. The draft also provides for the extradition of hijackers of boats. This is an important point with HVana, because a large number of Cuban boats have been taken by fleeing Cubans to American shores. Officials here conceded that the Canadian initiative stands to be obviated if the Cubans, because of recent experiences, decide to "jump ahead" to membership in international anti-hijacking conventions. They found it "intriguing" that the hijacked DC-9 had to return to Havana a second time after the hijackers failed to reach agreement with Cuban authorities on terms of entry the first time. This shows that Cuba is in- creasingly unhappy about its role as a domicile for suspected criminals, the officials sug- gested. PIRATES' TORONTO (CP) Mel Last- man, a Metro controller, said in a speech here that rents on older buildings should be frozen. He said landlords who let their buildings deteriorate to raise prices are "nothing more than high-rise pirates." 5MACLEODS: 8 PRE-CHRISTMAS Centre Village Mall Phone 328-5025 College Mall Phone 328-2809 bettyshop COATS Our buyer has recently returned frgigantic purchase of Ladies' Winte om eastrn Canada with a specialr Coats and Winter Wear.
