Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 11, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Thursday, uciooer 11, me o Wot so lucky "Lucky Eagle" Adam Nordwall, 43, supporting his American Indian outfit as chief of the Chippewa tribe, is escorted by Italian policeman (left) and his wife Babbie on his arrival in Rome today from the United States. Nordwall, leader in the American Indian movement, claimed he is reciprocating what Christopher Colum- bus did half a millenium ago "by his discovery and possession-taking of Italy.

A negotiating team led by Ian Gray, a CP Air vice- president, opened talks on a commercial air agreement yesterday (Tuesday) with representatives of the Civil Aviation Administration of China, the Chinese airline. The agreement, expected to be reached in about a week, will be one of the last steps in the lengthy and complicated process of opening up a China service. Another important link will fall into place if a separate CP Air team succeeds in persuading Japanese Air negotiators in Tokyo this week to approve refuelling rights for CP air- craft on the China run. The service would connect Vancouver and Shanghai, with an onward loop to Peking if Chinese officials are agreeable. It would be the first transpacific service to China since the Korean War. Peking and Ottawa approv- 3d the service in principle when they signed a government-togovernment air agreement earlier this year. The commercial agreement low under negotiation will settle subsidiary details that nvolve the airlines, sucii as .icketing and farere The commercial agreement must be ratified by the civil aviation authorities in each country. CP-Air will then run proving flights, familiarizing its pilots with Chinese procedures, before setting a date for its inaugural passenger flight. Negotiations with the Japa- nese authorities in Tokyo are holding out for subsntive con- cessions for Japan Air Lines on its service to Canada in return for the refuelling rights CP Air seeks for its China run and have even hinted that they might bar CP aircraft from overflying Japanese airspace en route to China if the airline should decide to forgo the re- fuelling stop and fly the mile leg from Anchorage to Shanghai non-stop. Japanese intransigence is based on a reluctance to see any other foreign airline fly- ing into China from the Pacific before Japan can secure an air agreement of its own with China. Negotiations with the Chinese are in hand, but have been deadlocked on the Chinese insistence that Japan sever its air links with Taiwan. Since Japanese air- lines now fly more than 40 scheduled flights a week to the island, one of their most lucrative runs in Asia, they are reluctant to concede. Whether CP Air can make the China service profitable is open to doubt in aviation circles. If the airline were forced to do without a Tokyo refuelling stop it would suffer such a severe payload as much as 50 per cent that its margin of profitability might disappear. On the other hand the air- line has the prospect of operating an exclusive service across the Pacific for as long as the Japanese remain stymied over Taiwan. Even- tually the Americans will enter the market too, but this appears to be at least some years off as there is no prospect of a commercial air link between China and the U.S. as long as Washington continues to retain its links with Taiwan, which President Nixon has pledged to do. With the growing passenger and freight traffic between North America and China, now mostly channeled through Hong Kong, and its onward links from Vancouver to South America, CP Air is unlikely to find itself flying almost empty aircraft, as Ethiopian Airlines has sometimes been obliged to do in operating its eight- month-old service connecting Addis Ababa and Shanghai. Ethiopian is one of three foreign airlines now flying into China from the West, the other being Air France and Pakistan International Airways. Grmi Island It even sounds refreshing.
