(CP Wirepholo) From AP-IIEUTEII OSLO (CP) The Norwegian navy stepped up its search in the Sogne fjord today and re- called two frigates from NATO commitments to hunt for an un- identified submerged object, possibly a submarine. A communique from the Nor- wegian defence command said ;wo frigates that had served in Lhe standing naval forces in the Atlantic had been recalled. They will relieve part of the Fleet that had participated in the search since the first obser- vations were reported two weeks ago. One of the vessels engaged in the hunt earlier today reported another "possible contact" in the Sogne fjord. The search will continue, the communique said. There was no official con- firmation that the object was a foreign submarine, but the re- call of the two NATO frigates was seen by some observers as an indication that such an ob- ject is there. Plane still missing in Arctic Hunt takes new twist YELLOWKN1FE, N.W.T. (CP) Search for four persons missing 16 days on the Arclic barrens has been widened, par- tially because of new Iheories put forward by a former north- ern pilot. The pilot, unnamed by search headquarters here, has sug- gested that one of three factors could have pulled Ihe plane car- rying Ihe four on a mercy mis- sion off its course when it dis- appeared Nov. 0. A Canadian forces spokesman said Thursday the former pilot believes the movement of the setting sun could have lured pi- lot Martin Hartwell, 45, west- ward without him realizing it. Another Iheory is lhat if Ihe twin-engined Beechcraft was experiencing problems, such as severe icing, the pilot would Hawrelak levy increased under new court ruling EDMONTON (CP) The Al- berta Supreme Court appellate division yesterday increased the amount former mayor Wil- liam Hawrelak is to pay Ihe city to from the ordered in an earlier com! rul- ing. Mr. Hawrelak was appealing a decision by Mr. Justice W. .1. C. Kirby of the Alberta Supreme Court in January which ruled he had made 197 as a result of land negotia- tions between the city and a company in which the former mayor wns a partner. Part of the negotiations were carried out while Mr. Hawrelak was mayor in 1963 and 1964. ERROR FOUND The amount paid to the city was increased due to an error in the January court ruling in- dicating that Mr. Hawrelak had paid for his shares in Juveniles play new in Bnlle BUTTE, Mont.

Sun-Alta Builders Ltd., when he actually had paid Mr. Justice Kirby had said in his ruling that Mr. Hawrelak violated rules governing per- sons in positions of trusl. The former mayor was pres- ident of Sun-Alta when it be- came involved in a land deal with Chrysler Corp., in 1963. On becoming mayor later thai year, he submilted a letter to council listing his outside inter- ests, including Sun-Alla. But three council members did not become aware of his interests until he made a slatement to council in June, 1964. Mr. Justice Kirby's judgment said the former mayor's 40-per- cent share in Sun-Alta jumped in value from to after a zoning bylaw con- cerning his property. Mr. HawTelak was unable to give unbiased judgment on the re- zoning decision, said Mr. Jus- tice Kirby. have turned west. The ex- planation behind this Is that he would have preferred to go down close lo the shelter of the Ireeline ralher than out on the desolate and unprotected bar- rens. The spokesman also said the former flyer suggests lhat it would not be unnatural for the gyro compass aboard the plane to be off a few degrees. The aircraft was flying two sick people and their nurse from Cambridge Bay, a small settlement on Victoria Island in the high Arctic, to Yellowknife, about 600 miles southwest. WAS IN LABOR Neemee Nulliayok, an Eskimo woman, was in premature la- bor, and 15-year-old David Koo- took was suffering abdominal pain, believed to be appendi- citis.

She came to Canada from England Ihree years ago and had just com- pleled her first year in the Ar- clic. The forces spokesman said Ihe search, one of the largest in northern history, is being ex- panded to include areas 120 miles on each side of the miss- ing plane's planned flight path. There still is confidence that the four could be alive if they survived the landing. The plane carried rations, survival equip- ment and five sleeping bags. All aboard were warmly dressed. New immigrant rules promised LONDON (CP) Sir Bernard Braine, the Tory MP who suc- cessfully led a bankhench revolt against the governments new immigration proposals, says he'll pull out all the stops in his campaign to improve the lot of wlute Commonwealth citizens wishing to migrate to Britain. Braine said in an interview today he plans to submit to the Conservative government pro- posals for new immigralion rules relating to cilizens of ihe o 1 d Australia and New Zealand. He would bring every possible pressure to bear on Prime Min- ister Edward Heath to see that these were accepted, he told The Canadian Press. The backbench revolt earlier Ihis week led lo Ihe defeat of the government's planned new immigration regulalions, a se- vere setback for Heath and his cabinet. Braine said he supporls Brit- ain's entry into Ihe European Common Markel Jan. 1 and Ihe free movemenl of labor lo Brit- ain from member countries which this wil! entail.

Grizzly policy urged EDMONTON (CP) Many grizzly bears are being killed ai "consolation prizes" by frus- trated hunters unable, to shoot other game, says Dr. Arthur Pearson of the Canadian Wild- life Service, Edmonton branch. He suggested in an inter- view that I5ie problem could be cased by establishing a con- tinental grizzly management police for Alaska, Ihe Yukon Territory, Northwest Territo- ries, British Columbia, Alberta, Montana and Wyoming. Under the plan, a hunter would be permitted to kill only one grizzly in one of the seven jurisdictions in a five-to-10 year period, he said. It might be wise to limit the kill to one grizzly in a life-time. As regulations now stand, a hunter can move from one stale, province or territory to another for successive kills. Rumania creates deadlock New York Times Service HELSINKI Rumania cre- ated a deadlock Thursday dur- ing the first working session of preparatory talks for a projecl- ed European security confer- ence by refusing to comply with "major power decisions." The point was a procedural one, dealing with the naming of a deputy chairman, and is ex- pected to be resolved quickly, but it highlighted a feeling evi- dent even before the consulta- tions began that the smaller nations would asert their inde- pendence.

I PHONE I The search was continuing de- spile reports from the area that hopes of finding the mystery submarine were diminishing. The defence command said in a statement that a sonar con- tact in a branch opposite where the flares had been observed, did not involve a submarine. The command gave no ex- planation of the report that the Norwegian frigate Trondheam had made a sonar contact with a submerged object for about 60 minutes and that it had fired a homing device to force it to the surface. Planes and naval vessels now have spread their area of oper- ation over a wider area after most of them had concentrated in the Sogndalsfjord, a narrow branch to the north, where so- nar contact was made Tuesday. Local residents have been up- set by the detonation of depth charges and the unusual sight of so many nayy ships prac- tically at their doorstep. Johan Kleppe, the Norwegian defence minister, told parlia- ment Thursday that military measures were being taken to force a possible submarine lo surface so that it could be iden- tified. Political observers said, how- ever, that it was unlikely that the government would order slu'ps to sink a foreign subma- rine. It was more likely that It would try to reach a face-sav- ing arrangement with the for- eign government concerned, tha observers added. Warplanes strike at North targets SAIGON (AP) United States E-52s blasted supply tar- gets for the third consecutive day in their heaviest raids of the war in North Vietnam, the U.S. command said today. Meanwhile, a navy fighter- bomber, disabled in a landing mishap, became the ninth U.S. aircraft lost in Southeast Asia in the last five days. The command said 14 mis- sions by the Stratofortresses, each with three planes, struck at military supply concentra- tions near the coastal cities of Vinh and Dong Hoi in the 24 hours ending at noon today. On the battlefields, South Vietnamese marines pushing north toward the demilitarized zone from Quang Tri city have met renewed heavy Communist artillery barrages which once again halted their advance.
