I Charter Flights Probe Ordered WASHINGTON (AP) A sweeping investigation of the U.S. tor charter industry and the way it is supervised by the Federal Aviation Administration was ordered Friday by Trans- portation Secretary John Volpe even as the FAA grounded more planes in the wake of the Wich- ita State University football team disaster.

C. W. GUchrist of Ottawa, managing director of the asso- ciation, told a news conference: "As of now the CGRA has gone out of business and has become the Road and Transpor- tation Association of Canada." Wesley D. Black, British Col- umbia minister of highways, was elected president of the new association, replacing George E. Gomme, Ontario minister of highways and presi- dent of the CGRA.

Gary Martin Dispensing Optician 307 SI. 5. 327-7132 to come to light a week after the crash Oct. 2 of leased hra-engined plane in Colorado killed 13 Wichita football play- ers and 17 other persons accom- panying them to a game. Here were the highlights: bypassing the FAA, ordered Admiral Willard J. Smith, -assistant secretary of transportation for safety and consumer affairs, "to conduct this in-depth investigation and spare no effort, time or re- sources in determining the true condition of every chartered op- eration in the United WARNED AIRLINE FAA, reversing its pre- vious statements, said it had in- deed warned Golden Eagle Aviation Inc., whose crew flew the fatal flight, against operat- ing large aircraft. But the offi- cial in Oklahoma CSty whom the FAA said issued the warning contradicted his Washington col- leagues and said he hadn't been in touch with Golden Eagle for nearly a year. FAA grounded two more Martin 404s which origi- nally were in a lot of 14 aircraft along with the plane that crashed. Thursday, it had grounded all planes known to be owned by Jack Richards Aviaiton Co. Inc., which had purchased the lot in 1968 and subsequently sold some of them. In the Wichita disaster, the university leased the plane from Richards and obtained the crew from Golden Eagle. The FAA called this a facade to avoid regulations governing passenger carriers and it revoked Golden Eagle's flight certifications for operating a plane too large for its authorization.

GPs Undecided On Que. Strike MONTREAL (CP) Quebec's general practioners have not yet decided whether to join the strike now being car- ried out by medical specialists but the GPs accused the govern- ment Friday of "unilateral" ac- tion in trying to fix medical tar- iffs in its proposed medical care insurance plan. Dr. Gerad president of the Federation of General Prac- tioners, said the GPs might have to resort to some form of 'contestation" to back their tar- iff demands. Dr. Hamel said the GPs are relying more on persuasion and the government's "good sense" than on contestation. The specialists have been on strike since Thursday after last-minute negotiations with the government broke down Wednesday night. Quebec hospitals have been handling only emergency cases since the specialists began strike action to show opposition :o clauses in the medical care plan coaeerning restriction of payments for opted-out doctors, control of professional qualifica- tions and fee rates. Dr. Hamel said if negotiations 3o not produce positive results the GPs might opt out en masse >ut "our public declaration is not accompanied by a threat of strike." He said the fee question is the only issue that remains to be settled for his federation.. The GPs say that the proposed fee rate is only 66 per cent of that in Ontario. The effects of the strike are beginning to hit major hospitals and Montreal's largest, Notre Dame, has already been forced to turn away a number of non- emergency cases. One resident doctor in Mont- real said all leaves and vaca- tions have been cancelled and the work load for each working doctor has tripled. la certain designated hospi- tals, skeleton staffs of special- ists are handling only -emer- gency cases. Only 36 of the province's 250 hospitals have been designated as emergency sites. The specialists said at the be- ginning of the strike that the crucial effects will only begin to be felt by Monday night. A special session of the na- tional assembly has been called for Monday in Quebec City to discuss possible modifications to the scheme which expected to be implemented Nov. 1. The GPs have reached agree- ment with the government over proposed modifications on opt- ing-out and assurance that pro- fessional standards will be con- trolled by the Quebec College of Physicians and Surgeons. The specialists federation has said it is ready to resume negotiations if the government sees fit to "reconsi- der its intransigent possition." WEIGHT WATCHERS.

REGISTRATION MEETING MEN WOMEN TEENAGERS For Further Information Call 328-5832 Divorce Deluge Coming ROME (AP) Legal divorce in Italy is past Its last major tart ot a five-year campaign by Its and within a few months the estimated 2 million Kalians whose marriages ha- ven't worked will have a way out. Friday the Senate .passed a bill to legalize divorce. The vote wag 164 to 150, six "yes" vote more than were required. The Senate acted on a roll-call vote in the face of strong opposi- tion by the Roman Catholic Church and by the Christian Democrats, the most powerful party in Italy's four-party coali- tion government. The move put both houses of the legislature on record as favoring legalized di- vorce for the first time in It- aly's 100-year history as a na- tion. Only some minor amend- ments must now be approved by the Chamber ot Deputies before the measure becomes law. Under the bill divorce may be granted if: spouse is under a priion sentence of 15 or more years. spouse is under sentence for incest or for having prosti- tuted UK other spouse or a fam- ily member, or for attempting to murder a member of the family. spouse Is acquitted of a crime because of insanity and is declared unfit for family life. spouse has obtained a di- vorce-abroad as a foreign citi- zen or married again abroad somehow. marriage Is not con- summated. Italy's current law forbids dis- solution of a marriage except through civil, which is rare, or religious, which is easier to obtain.
