Most brides feel that their weddings wouldn't be complete without them. But occasionally different music is used. Some brides today feel that the "Here-comes-the-bride" rigorous rhythm is a wearisome cliche', and prefer a Chopin nocturne or prelude or other romantic "mood" music. And sometimes a different recessional is used. But, we warn you, that many of your wedding guests will feel that they've been "cheated" out of a sentimentally beautiful moment if you don't follow tradition! 9 0 OFFERING YOU THE FINEST IN m CATERING FACILITIES Bl LARGE OR SMALL - WE CATER TO THEM ALL m PHONE 328-2366 FOR RESERVATIONS M 10th AVENUE and MAYOR MAGRATH DRIVE brother, the United Nations, involving international sanctions. The U.S. proposal, after important modifications by Belgium and Germany, calls for multilateral air agreements in which termination of air services would be a key aspect to dealing with countries involved in holding planes or passengers for purposes of "international blackmail." The proposal first calls fr-careful consultations by a select number of countries involved in a particular hijack-for-black-mail incident. EFFECT LIMITED Jack Stevenson, alternate U.S. delegate, said that if such a measure were invoked, it would likely involve only the countries affected. Crux of the issue was whether the ICAO, as a technical body, was the proper forum to discuss problems with political ovea'-tones such as hijackings. The U.S. delegation said it was. "Air safety is what we are after and that is not a political issue," Mr. Stevenson said in council debate. "We are calling for suspension of services guaranteed and established under the Chicago Convention." The Chicago document is the charter under which the ICAO has been operating since it became an official organization in 1947. A. E. Hicheri, of the Tunisian delegation, and H. K. El Mel-eigy of Egypt both argued that the ICAO was not the place to be discussing such issues. Mr. Hicheri said "we must not get into Uiis business of sanctions." "They are unrealistic and not legal for this council to dus-cuss." . DEFEAT PROPOSAL After defeating a proposal by Mr. Hicheri to postpone debate indefinitely, the 27-member delegation approved the U.S. proposal by a 14-to-3 margin with 10 countries abstaining. The 14 votes were the minimum needed for ICAO approval. Among countries approving the measmre were Australia, Belgium, Canada, Germany, Italy, The Netherlands and Great Britain. TTwse opposing were Lebanon, Egypt and Tunisia. Major countries abstaining were France and Mexico. The long debate on the contentious U.S. issue obscured a Canadian proposal approved 18-to-0 with three countries abstaining. The Canadian measure, also announced Sept. 18, calls for bilateral air agreements to be in-coi-porated under ICAO aviation conventions. The agreements would contain a clause allowing a coimtry to suspend air service if a partner country failed to honor its international obligations to prosecute hijackers apd saboteurs. Henri Gourdeau, head of the Canadian delegation, said afterwards that he was delighted at the way the Camadian proposal was received. Walter BinagM, ICAO council president, said however he was not so sure about the ultimate fate of the two resolutions. Ferreting out the differences between the two would present problems for the ICAO legal committee now meeting in London.

Mr. Carson said Sunday on the CTV program Question Period there have been "isolated instances" where the commission has turned its back on the Pearson commitment that uni-lingual public servants would not be penalized under the government's campaign to promote bilingualism in tlie service. Ho said, "I think Mr. Pearson, however well intendetl, earnestly hoped thiait this could be achieved but the goals we have set for ourselves . . . particularly since the passage of the Official Languages Art, mean that you can't slavishly adhere to the total commitment."

U.S. Need For Coal Stressed VANCOUVER (CP) - Coal will remain a primary soui'ce of energy in the United States tor the rest of the centiu-y, so ways will have to be found to convert it into cleaner and more convenient forms, the 22nd annual conference on coal was told Thursday. George Fumich, Jr., of Washington, director of coal research for the U.S. department of the interior, said many electric utilities are operating with dangerously low coal reserves and that natural gas shortages are also approaching. British Columbia, he suggested, should keep these facts in mind when planning future electric power generation because this province has huge coal reserves. Mr, Fumich said the American "energy crisis" was caused by unexpected difficulties in getting nuclear power plants on stream as scheduled and the sudden public interest in the environment. With nuclear power apparently on the way, he continued, plans for new coal mines and equipment were postponed or cancelled, and even the continued use of coal in existing utility plants bfr-ime a question with strict i^'-.trols on air pollution. In desperation, "lectric uiiii-ties and other large industrial users of coal looked for substi-tutes, but the shift was so rapid that suppliers of natural gas and residual oil could not meet demands. Mr. Fumich said there are serious doubts that the coal industry can meet short-term needs, but with an adequately supported research program I they should overcome the prob-' lems. 1,800 Delegates At NDP Rally TORONTO (CP) - More than 1,800 delegates today open the three-day convention of the Ontario New Democratic Party with the excitement of a leadership race already taking second place to a pending battle over the question of tiationalizing tlie economy. Family Planning Abortion Solution EDMONTON CP) - Abor-, er has a right to survive, or la tion is a "last-ditch" solution for unwanted children and family planing is the essential preventive solution, a Montreal obstetrician and gynecologist said Thursday. Dr. J. G. Mulcair, addressing the annual convention of the Catliolic Hospital Conference of Altierta, said the doctrine of the Catholic Church "has left us behind the social changes and "we must change our fixed position." He said each individual has a different capacity to love but this capacity often reaches its limit "where there just Is no longer the capacity to love another member (child) in a family." Only married couples, he said, should have the right to withold bringing another child into the world. They alone know their capacity to love. They alone must decide; not I, not you and certainly not the hierarchy of the church." The two-day convention which began Thursday � is dealing strictly with the topics of abortion and sterilization. Dr. Mulcair said sterilization was reserved "for those cases where family planning had failed" or "if we believe the moth. Businessmen Criticized By Mayor CALGARY (CP) - Mayor Rod Sykes Thursday criticized busmessmen for shirking their responsibilities to the community which is endangering exis-tence of the free enterprise system. He told a meeting of western steel industry executives that businessmen are the true "drop-outs" of soceity, not long-haired kids. In too many Instances, he said, the average businesman "seems to feel he can enjoy the feast from the' free enterprise system" without showing others what it can do for them. If that feeling persists, free enterprise will be elimnated by popular demand. over 35 and no longer has the capacity of love without the risk of reducing her capacity for the children she already has." The doctor described abortion as "a destruction of life," adding that Catholic physicians were not escaping the issue by sending their patients to another hospital for an abortion. Father Jean-Guy Le Marier, professor of theology at the University of Ottawa, eaid abortion sterilization were justifiable "but only in very rare cases" such as when a moth-er's life, not health, was in distinct danger. Such a moral judgement should be up to the patient, doctor and hospital administrators, he said. Plane Warning Issued WASHINGTON (AP) - The National Transportation Safety Board said Thursday that engines of 747 jmnbo jets are operating at "near critical turbine-temperature conditions." The board recommended quick steps to avoid "potentially catastrophic results." The boaa-d did not call for groimding of the huge jetlinei-s, but urged the Federal .\viation Administraton "to initiate further expeditious actions in order to preclude recurrence of similar failures" as that experienced '>y an American Airlines 747 on Sept. 18 and an Air France 747 on Aug. 17. An engine explosion and fire damaged the American Alrlmes 747 on takerff from San Francisco International Airport, but the plane with 142 persons aboard landed safely. The Air France 747 experienced similar failure on a flight from Montreal to Paris, but landed safely in Nev York.
