Pilot strike possible as conciliation fails Hostages9 ordeal ends, terrorists in Panama SANTO DOMINGO (AP) United States diplomat Barbara Hutchison was in good spirits after seven lef- tist terrorists released her and six other hostages in return for safe conduct out of the Dominican Republic. "Suddenly I became a tremendous bargain; I went from a million to the 47year-old envoy said Wednesday night after the 13-day episode ended. The gunmen originally demanded million ransom and the release of 33 leftist prisoners. They got nothing except a safe getaway. The terrorists, who had held the hostages since Sept. 27 in a second-floor room of the Venezuelan Consulate, were flown aboard a special Dominican jet to Panama, where they proclaimed victory and said they were ex- hausted. As they left the Boeing 727 at Tocumen International Airport near Panama City, the gunmen, led by leftist Radhames Mendez Vargas, were met by Lt.-Col. Manuel Antonio Noriega, chief intelligence officer of the Panamanian National Guard. Miss Hutchison, director of the U.S. Information Service (USIS) in the Dominican Republic, said she and the other hostages were treated well during the siege and even developed "something of a friendship" with their captors. OTTAWA (CP) A strike by air Canada pilots was a possibility Wednesday after release of a conciliation report here, but a company spokesman said that he was hopeful a settlement can be reached within a few days. Conciliation commissioner Stanley Hartt reported to Labor Minister John Munro that he was unable to resolve a contract dispute between the pilots, represented by the Canadian Air Line Pilots' Association, company But a company spokesman in Montreal said later that "we certainly don't see strike action coming up." Union of- ficials, also in Montreal made no comment. The pilots would be legally entitled to strike early Satur- day morning, although in most labor disputes unions do not immediately resort to Province, CSA agree on salaries walkouts when they are per- mitted by law. Mr Munro said that he hoped a strike by the pilots could be avoided and added that he would not comment further until he had been in touch with the parties. Mr. Hartt, submitting proposals that he called a "reasonable middle said he thought a strike would be a useless and unnecessary event. The report says that there seemed to be an unwillingness by the parties to "reveal in a frank manner thfi true posi- tion of each party" during the conciliation hearings. OTTAWA (CP) Finance Minister John Turner gave the Commons an optimistic "in- terim report on the economy" Wednesday, but said inflation is the government's top- priority item. Mr. Turner's first major statement in the Commons since his budget speech last May came after Statistics Canada reported the con- sumer price index had its smallest monthly increase of the year-last tenths of one per cent. Mr. Turner said Canada is expected to have the best eco- nomic performance in the world this year. But he added that high inflation rates may continue as a result of "an un- derstandable effort to catch up" in wage and salary increases. He reaffirmed the govern- ment stand that there can be no trade-off between inflation and unemployment levels. Statistics Canada's state- ment said housing was the main component of the con- sumer price increase, stemm- ing from higher mortgage costs and rent increases. But the increase in the food index was moderated by sea- sonal declines in the prices of. fresh fruit and vegetables. Mr. Turner also defended both the Liberal government and corporation profits The government deserved credit because the economy out-performed that of the United States during the last four or five years. And cor- porations needed continued adequate profits. Past profits had contributed to economic growth when it was difficult to raise money elsewhere. Mr Turner made no pre- diction of future economic growth although a few weeks ago he projected a growth rate of four to Vh. per cent. He cited several statistics favorably comparing Cana- dian performance with other countries. Real growth in 1973 was 7.1 per cent, surpassed only by Japan in statistics that discounted inflation. Mr. Turner said he is still open to suggestions about the federal budget. "There is no room for com- placency over this relatively strong performance of the Ca- nadian economy." The budget for de- feated last May in a con- fidence vote that led to the July 8 election, is expected to be reintroduced with few changes by mid-November.
