A spokesman for the 119-coun- try organization said the deci- sion was among the few ever approved by the ICAO or its big NOWHERE ELSE TO GO-Peter Felatookin, 81-year-old Freedomite, shovels gravel from the shoulder of n road for the front of his house located on a small campsite near Mountain Prison in Agassiz, B.C.

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 recession- ol is used. But, we warn you, that many of your wedding guests will feel that they've been "cheat- ed'' out of a sentimentally beautiful moment if you don't follow tradition! brother, the United Nations, In- volving international sanctions The U.S. proposal, after im- portant modifications by Bel- ;ium and Germany, calls for nultilateral air agreements in which termination of air serv- .ces would be a key aspect to ilealing with countries involvec in holding planes or passengers [or purposes of "international >lackmail." The proposal first calls fr careful consultations by a select number of countries involved in 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 he ICAO, as a technical body, was the proper forum to discuss iroblems with political over- ones such as hijackings. The U.S. delegation said it was. "Air safety is what we are after and that is not a political Mr. Stevenson said in council debate. "We are calling or suspension of services guar- anteed and established under the Chicago Convention." The Chicago document is the charter under which the ICAO lias been operating since it be- :ame an official organization in 947. A. E. Hicheri, of the Tunisian lelegation, and H. K. El Mel- ;igy of Egypt both argued that he ICAO was not the place to ?e discussing such issues. Mr. Hicheri said "we must lot get into this business of auctions." "They are unrealistic and not egal for this council to dus- uss." DEFEAT PROPOSAL After defeating a proposal by tr. Hicheri to postpone debate ndefinitely, the 27-member del- gation approved the U.S. pro- osal by a 14-to-3 margin with 0 countries abstaining. The 14 otcs were the minimum needed or ICAO approval. Among countries approving le measure were Australia, elgium, Canada, Germany, taly, The Netherlands and Ireat Britain. Those opposing rere Lebanon, Egypt and Tuni- sia. Major countries abstaining were France and Mexico. The long debate on the eon- entious U.S. issue obscured a 'anadian, proposal approved 18- o-o with three countries ab- taining. The Canadian measure, also mnounced Sept. 18, calls for bi- ateral air agreements to be in- orporated under ICAO aviation onventions. The agreements ould contain a clause allowing country to suspend air service f a partner country failed to onor its international obliga- lons to prosecute hijackers apd aboteurs. Henri Gourdeau, head of the Canadian delegation, said after- wards that he was delighted at le way the Canadian proposal was received. Walter BinagM, ICAO council resident, said however he was ot so sure about the ultimate ate of the two resolutions. Ferreting out the differences etween the two would present roblems for the ICAO legal ommittee now meeting in Lon- OFFERING YOU THE FINEST IN CATERING FACILITIES LARGE OR SMALL WE CATER TO THEM ALL PHONE 323-2366 FOR RESERVATIONS 10th AVENUE ond MAYOR MAGRATH DRIVE CONVERSING WITH NATURE-A flock of Canada appear to be expressing their appreciation in a Toronto park to Bob Linklattr and Bill Davidson for the slices of bread the men gave them during a break from their long flight to the south.

He said the association de- nded to find out whether there s a teacher surplus this year and advertised asking teachers holding certificates and still seeking positions to register. The surplus list has been sent to school superintendents n case they should have any vacancies to fill, Mr. Casanova said. Chuck Rose, president of .Lo- cal 38, said there have been no complaints in Calgary of qual- fied teachers not being able to ind positions. the appointments, emphasized the evolving and increasingly important role of parliamen- tary secretaries in the work of government and Parliament. This has become more so, he said, in the light of reforms in House procedure which have greatly expanded the use of House committees in the legis- lative process. The appointments from Brit- ish Columbia are Bruce How- ard 47, MP for Okanagan Boun- dary who will be parliamentary secretary to Trade and Com- merce Minister Jean Luc Pe- pin, and Ray Perrault, 44, MP for Burnaby-Seymour, who will be parliamentary secretary to Labor Minister Bryce Macka- sey.

U.S. Need For Coal Stressed VANCOUVER (CP) Coal will remain a primary source of energy in the United States for the rest of the century, 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 Wash- ington, director of coal re- search for the U.S. department of the interior, said many elec- tric utilities are operating with dangerously low coal reserves and that natural gas shortages are also approaching. British Columbia, he suggest- ed, should keep these facts in mind when planning future elec- tric power generation because this province has huge coal re- serves. Mr. Fumich said the Ameri- can "energy crisis" was caused by unexpected difficul- ties in getting nuclear power plants on stream as scheduled and the sudden public interest in the environment. With nuclear power apparent- ly on the way; he continued, plans for new coal mines and equipment were postponed or cancelled, and even the con- tinued use of coal in existing utility plants bf'-r'me a ques- tion wiUi strict trols on air pollution.. In desperation, utili- ties and large industrial ass's 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 diubls that the coal in- dustry can meet short-term needs', but with s? adequately supported research program they should overcome the prob- lems. Delegates At NDP Rally TORONTO (CP) More than delegates today open the three-day convention of the On- tario New Democratic Party With thfc excitement of a leader- ship race already taking second place to a pending battle over the question of ritlnnalizinf; the Family Planning Abortion Solution EDMONTON CP) Abor- lion is a "last-ditch" solution [or unwanted children and fam- ily planing is the essential preventive solution, a Montreal obstetrician and gynecologist said Thursday. Dr. J. G. Mulcair, addressing :he annual convention of Ihe Catholic Hospital Conference of Alberta, said the doctrine of the Catholic Church "has left us behind the social changes er has a right to survive, or Is over 35 and no longer has Ihe capacity of love without the risk of reducing her capacity for the children she already has." The doctor described abor- tion as "a destruction of adding that Catholic physicians were not escaping the issue by sending their patients to anoth- er hospital for an abortion. Father Jean-Guy Le Marier, and "we must change our fixed professor of theology at the I University of Baid He said each individual has a different capacity to love but his. capacity often reaches its imit "where there just Is no onger 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 knpw their cap- acity to love. They alone must decide; not not you and cer- tainly not the hierarchy of the church." The two-day convention which began Thursday is dealing strictly with the topics of abor- tion and sterilization. Dr. Mulcair said sterilization was reserved "for those cases where family planning had fail' ed" or "if we believe the moth. Businessmen Criticized By Mayor CALGARY (CP) Mayor lod Sykes Thursday criticized businessmen for shirking their responsibilities to the commu- ilty which is endangering exis- ence of the free enterprise system. He told a meeting of western steel industry executives that jusinessmen are the true 'drop-outs" of soceity, not ong-haired kids. In too many instances, he said, the average businessman 'seems to feel he can enjoy he feast from the" free enter- irise system" without showing ithers what it can do for them. If that feeling persists, free enterprise will be elimnated by wpular demand. abortion sterilization were just- ifiable "but only in very rara cases" such as when a moth- er's life, not health, was in dis- tinct danger. Such a moral judgement should be up to the patient, doctor and hospital administra- tors, he said. Plane Warning Issued WASHINGTON The National Transportation Safety Board said Thursday that en- gines of 747 jumbo jets are op- erating at "near critical tur- bine-temperature conditions." The board recommended quick steps to avoid "potentially cata- strophic results." The board did not call for grounding of the huge jetliners, but urged the Federal Aviation Administraton "b initiate fur- ther expeditious actions in order to preclude recurrence of simi- lar failures" as that experi- enced an American Airlines 747 on Sept. 18 and an Air France 747 on Aug. 17. An engine explosion and fire damaged the American Airlines 747 on takeoff from San Fran- cisco International Airport, but the plane with 142 person aboard landed safely. The Air Franco 747 experienced similar failure on a flight from Mont- real to Paris, but landed safely in Her York.
