Rosy gin protesters claim JO fi. to have achieved purpose TORONTO 'CP) Two Cana-1 (Slavic for freedom) when Mr. flian members of the Jewish De fence League who dramatically proteslcd against Soviet Pre- mier Kosygin as he addressed a dinner Monday said: "We achieved our purpose." Mrs. Cclia Airst, a Toronto housewife and mother of two. said in an interview in a plush north Toronto home: "1 think Kosygin got a good idea of democracy in action." Mrs. Airst and Albert Apple- baum were taken under police escort from the Ontario Science Centre after interrupting the So- viet leader during his address to the Canadian Manufacturers As- sociation. The pair shouted "Svoboda" Protesters hurl candles at policemen TORONTO (CP) Hundreds of protesters stood quietly hold- ing lit candles before violence erupted Monday night across from the Ontario Science Centre where Soviet Premier Alexei Kosygin was speaking. When 30 policemen on horse- back charged into a crowd of unruly demonstrators some of them hurled lighted candles at the horses and their riders. The candles were being sold for 25 cents each as fast as six girls from the Ukrainian Stu- dents Union could attach tiny windscreens and pass them out from a stock of Helana Kowlski, 21, a Univer- sity of Toronto student, said the candles were sold at cost. 'This is no time for profit." Mrs. Jaroslawn Winynnycka, 66, of Toronto, stared silently into her candle flame. "I was thinking of my hus- the Ukrainain immi- grant said.

U.S. officials said three sky marshals and an off- duty FBr agent were aboard the plane carrying 221 passengers when it was commandeered. A Federal Aviation Adminis- tration official said that al- though the pilot of the American Airlines plane had kept two en- gines running when it landed at Havana's Jose Marti Airport in hopes of an early departure, it had not been released by Cuban authorities. The FAA said it did not know whether the Cuban government intended to allow the plane to leave Havana before Soviet Pre- mier Alexei K. Kosygin's sched- uled arrival in the Cuban capi- tal today from Toronto. The big 747 was hijacked Monday shortly after it left New York's Kennedy International Airport, destined for San Juan, Puerto Rico. American said it learned of the hijack from a prearranged "special signal" aboard the plane, designed to tell ground personnel that a hijack was in progress.

He said "two men took each of us" and escorted the couple from the building. "We were interrogated by po- lice and let go." No charges had been laid. Mr. Applebaum, a pharma- cist, said the pair had no trou- ble gaming entrance to the din- ner. "We simply bought some of the extra tickets that were left I over." Mrs. Airst said that no effort was made to conceal the banner which passed, apparently unno- ticed in Mr. Applebaum's inner coat pocket, through the tight security web. HAD NO TROUBLE "We got through security with ease. We had no plans to do anything she said. "We just went in to hold up the sign." Mr. Applebaum said the JDL is not a militant organization in any way. "The idea was to let him know what we feel. We didn't want to attack him in any he said. Mrs. Airst said when she left the dinner she felt "as if she had just been let go from Rus- sia." She said it was "like an army camp. It was like a thousand eyes were on you. It was an eerie feeling." Investigation demanded into police action TORONTO (CP) A Ukrain- ian Canadian Congress official has demanded a full investiga- tion into what he termed police brutality at a demonstration during Premier Alexei Kosy- gin's visit at the Ontario Sci- ence Centre. "They had no right to use that said Yaroslaw Botiuk, legal adviser and director of the congress. He said police on horses "charged viciously, just viciously, into the crowd." He said one man was running away and two mounted police cornered him and while the man was on the ground both were beating him. "Then one leaned over and grabbed him by the hair and dragged him away." He said a woman was screaming "What are you doing to the and she was struck too.

In the past, he said, those re- lations were not as close as they might have been and they did not improve as quickly as they should have. He said some peo- ple attributed the rift to the dif- ferences between the cultures of the two countries. 'We hold a different view and I must say it is pleasant to meet in Canada people we have al- ready met in the Soviet he said, adding that he would like to see those friendships broaden. At one time, the Soviet Union did not have strong economic lies with many of the European nations either, he said. But tiiose have since improved. SPEECH INTERRUPTED Speaking at a din- ner sponsored by the Canadian Manufacturers Association, he referred to a pact he signed with Prime Minister Trudeau in Moscow last spring as an "im- portant document" to strengthen ties. His speech, the first major 1YDP candidates after first seat GRAND FALLS, Nfld. (CP) John Connors has tackled what may be the toughest job of all in the Oct. 28 Newfoundland election. The 26-year-old schoolteacher from nearby Windsor is leader of the New Democratic Party in Newfoundland which has never elected a member but now has candidates in 17 of the 41 elec- toral districts. Both Premier Joseph Small- wood's Liberal party, in power since 1949, and the Progressive Conservatives under Frank Moores are contesting all seats. Mr. Connors admits the best the NDP can hope for is to gain the balance of power in the 42- seat legislature, which includes two members from one district. "I think it would be optimistic to say we will elect more than six but three or more sounds reasonable and I think we will get the balance of he said in an interview. Despite his comparative youth the youngest political leader in not a new game for Mr. Connors. RAN IN He ran for the NDP in St. John's West in the 1968 federal election. The district, along with five of the other six Newfound- land constituencies, was won by Conservatives. Now he's running in Grand Falls, held in the last house by Education Minister F. W. Howe, who is seeking re-elec- tion. The NDP's campaign chest is in member- ship dues and private contribu- tions. But Mr. Connors promised a "vigorous" campaign, adding: "There is a great need at the moment for a party with a dif- ferent approach." He said changes in govern- ment in six provincial elections across Canada during the last two years indicated the public's unwillingness to allow one party to remain in power too long. He also saw the upsets as an expression of changing political beliefs. may Peking establish consulates OTTAWA (CP) The Peo- ple's Republic of China has "ex- pressed interest" in establishing one or more consulates in Can- ada, an external affairs spokes- man said today. But no location has been spec- ified and negotiations have not yet begun, the spokesman said. Negotiations to define the terms under which permission for a consulate would be granted could begin once a formal Chinese request was made. The spokesman said any agreement on consulates would have "a reciprocal feature." "We would want the right to establish a consulate in Chinese city." The Chinese embassy here had no comment. Tito heads for Canada and U.S. BELGRADE (Router) President Tiio of Yugoslavia, on his second journey abroad this month, left by air today for the United States on a trip which will also take him to Canada and Britain. President Tito starts the offi- cial part of his program in Washington Thursday morning. Ho will arrive in the United Stales early Wednesday and siay initially at the U.S'. presi- dential retreat at Camp David, Md. The party will stay in the U.S. until Nov. 2, but the program for their Canadian visit has not yet been announced. It is ex- pected that Tito will spend a few days in Britain in Novem- ber. Trudeau plans Ontario visits OTTAWA (CP) Prime Min- ister Trudeau will take part in Remembrance Day ceremonies Nov. 11 at London, Ont., his of- fice said today. Mr. Trudeau is expected to visit other cities in southwestern Ontario on the same day and on Nov. 12 though plans are not yet firm. The prime minister plans to make two Quebec visits next month as well. He will be in Halifax this Friday. He was in Winnipeg earlier this month. Informants said Mr. Trudeau is cutting down his foreign travel but not his domestic po- litical visits to various parts of the country. address he gave during his eight-day Canadian tour which ends today, was interrupted briefly by two demonstrators. The two were evicted quickly from the banquet hall in the Ontario Science Centre. Mr. Kosygin said economic opportunities offer a way to strengthen mutual confidence and "the common bonds of friendship" between Canada and the Soviet Union. He also gave some figures in- dicating the strength of the So- viet economy. For example the Soviet Union was producing 120 million tons of steel a year and by 1975 it would be producing 150 million tons. And by 1975 it was expected that Soviet production of iron ore would reach 250 million tons. He recalled that a year ago in Bucharest the countries of East- ern Europe drew up a program for the "socialist integration of economic ties." "This shows how countries can take advantage of the inter- national division of labor to build their economies without crises and unemployment and to develop it continuously." He said Canada and the So- viet Union have not exhausted all their capacity for mutual co-operation. "We haven't really looked into the problems yet." On the political side, Mr. Ko- sygin noted that Canada and the United States have wanted to avoid clashes and wars. "You may rest assured our entire foreign and domestic pol- icy is based on the foundation, to' meet that noble and humane he said. He cited the alliance of the two nations during the Second World War and said that in order to improve relations both countries must have closer po- litical and economic ties. Canada and the Soviet Union had fought the war so that there would he no more war, he said. "I believe we shall go on fighting to achieve that goal with you and other countries of the world." Gerard Filion of Montreal, president of the Manufacturers Association, introduced Mr. Ko- sygin and said the premier had expressed a wish to meet repre- sentative groups of manufactur- ers while in Canada. He said Canadians are happy to see growing evidence of in- creased co-operation between their country and the U.S.S.R. "As practical businessmen, we look forward to development of new trading links with the Soviet Union as Mr. Fi- lion said. POLISH FISHERMAN SEEKS ASYLUM Wojcieck F. Ostrowski, 36, who said he defected from o Polish fishing vessel because he heard he would be hanged for anti- Russian activities if he returned home, sought asylum in the United States Monday. Ostrowski of Gdynia, Poland, walked into Boston Police headquarters with a note written in English, saying he had jumped ship and did not wish to return to Poland.

G. T. Clarke said Monday. The university's general fac- ulties council has approved the introduction tit a spring ses- sion which will be administer- ed similar to the existing sum- mer session. Dr. Clark, summer session and evening credit program director, said the move means courses will be available to students on a 12 month basis. "We have every hope the program will start in the spring of 1972, it still has to be approved by the summer ses- sion and evening credit pro- gram committee, but hope it will go ahead." He said there was a possibil- ity of 30 courses being offered in the first year with an esti- mated enrolment of. between 600 and 700 students. "We don't anticipate enrol- ment will be as high as in the summer session." jobs in Ontario and Quebec last Friday without union executive sanction but apparently re- turned after Mary Lennox, pres- ident of the Traffic Employees Association, issued a back-to- work directive Monday night. Talks between the association and Bell broke off Monday and conciliation board chairman T. C. O'Connor said he would sub- mit his report and recommen- dations to federal Labor Minis- ter Bryce Mackasey at an early date. The company interpreted Miss Lennox's directive as a move to put the operators in a legal position to strike. They may legally do so seven days after the report is received by the labor department. SEEK WAGE PARITY The union is seeking wage parity with British Columbia telephone operators. The top rate at Bell is a week and the rate paid by B.C. Tele- phone will be in Janu- ary. Miss Lennox said Monday the union had rejected a wage in- crease of a week over two years in the highest zones, In- cluding Toronto and Montreal. In Ottawa, Mr. Mackasey, who termed the walkout as "completely illegal" told the Commons the operators should return to work. The walkout does not affect local calls or direct-dialed long- distance connections, but most operator-assisted services have been delayed.
