Hijacked plane had protection SAN JUAN (AP) The pas- sengers and most of the crew of the hijacked American Airlines 747 jumbo jet arrived in this Puerto Rican city Wednesday night, and one of them who wit- nessed the hijacking said at no time did he see any action from the three sky marshalls or the off-duly FBI man who were aboard. Marvin W. Schwartz, a freel- ance photographer from New York, said the first he knew that any such protection was aboard was after the landing at Havana. He said a voice called over the loudspeaker for the federal agents to come forward but "no one made a move." Two American jetliners sent to Havana Wednesday afternoon brought 230 passengers and seven crew members to San Juan .They appeared in good health and lively spirts after their two-day detour through Cuba. Schwartz said the hijack took place about 40 minutes after the plane took off from New York Monday night for Puerto Rico. He said the hijacker was about 25 years old. He said he tried to speak to the man to English and Spanish, but got only the clipped reply: "I don't want to say anything." Enriqua Burgos, a San Juan lawyer aboard the flight, said the hijacker was "a Puerto Rican who couldn't find work in New York." Schwartz said he was about four feet from the stewardess who was taken hostage.

They were scheduled to leave for Ottawa Thursday and return to Bonn Oct. 30.

WELCOME OFFER He said armies always aro concerned with increasing their mobility and now are using weapons with far greater ranges in the past. "As you know the space have for training in Germany is small and we welcome this offer from Canada" to use the training areas. Col. Rotzall said any plans his government might develop for training would be similar to those of the British Army which has signed a 10-year agreement with Canada to use the Suffield area. A 22-page report, prepared recently by three Edmonton scientists and commissioned jointly by the federal govern- ment's environment and de- fence departments, says Bri- tish troop exercises next spring in the Suffield area could dam- age the delicate ecology of area.
