Eghty-eight of the 89 persons aboard the flight were killed when the DC-9 jet crashed into a seawall short of the runway at Logan International Airport while attempting an instrument landing, the board said. Preliminary reports indicate the plane was off course and at an angle to the runway centre line when it hit the seawall. The safety board disclosure of the complaints came in a safety recommendation made to the Federal Aviation Adminis- tration The board said flight records "show that numerous com- plaints about radio and flight instruments were recorded in the flights logs after the aircraft was modified from the Northeast Airlines to the Delta Air Lines DC-9 avionics con- figuration in April. 1973." MERGED LAST YEAR Delta merged with Northeast la., 'ear and took over North- east's airplanes and air routes in the New England area. The safety board said 14 Northeast Airlines DC-9 jets were affected by the modi- fication. The remaining 13 air- craft also have been the target of "recurring radio and flight instrument complaints the board said. The board said its investiga- tion had not progressed far enough to determine whether the instruments played a deci- sive role in the accident. But it said "we are concerned about possible operational implica- tions of these chronic dis- crepancies and the apparent difficulty that Delta Air Lines has experienced in correcting them." It asked the FAA to in- vestigate the Delta modification program and to review the quality control procedures used by the airline during the modi- fication. It also said the FAA should consider the "necessity of im- peding appropriate operational restrictions on the modified DC- 9 aircraft until the underlying reasons for the avionics dis- crepencies have been identified and corrected." Sask. may counter feed grains plan REGINA (CP) Unless the federal government changes its mind on its new feed Grains policy, Saskatchewan will "shortly" announce counter- measures, says Premier Allan Blakeney. He did not specify what coun- ter-measures are being consid- ered, but said several possibil- ities are being studied. Mr. Blakeney told a news con- ference he still hopes Justice Minister Otto Lang, minister responsible for the Canadian wheat board, will change the feed grains policy he announc- ed early this month. Mr. Lang, however, distribut- ed a staement from his Ottawa office re-affirming his commitment to the proposals. The statement hit hard at criticisms made by the Saskat- chewan government and other governments and organizations, but did r.oi name any of the groups: "The insinuations that these critics throw out are always vague and always without a bas- is in fact. "Those who would argue that the wheat board is being injur- ed are really the ones who are causing any injuries by even making the suggestion (that the board will lose Many critics of the new pol- icy have said that allowing the agriculture products board to buy feed grains, as well as the wheat board, will harm the principle of orderly marketing that has assured farmers sta- ble prices. Life-blood of papers' dwindles as strike shortens supplies Ottawa surplus lower this year OTTAWA (CP) The federal government had a budget sur- plus of million during July and the excess helped the gov- ernment show a sur- plus for the first four months of the 19-73-74 budget year. A finance department news release and the statement of fi- nancial operations show that this July's surplus is considera- bly higher than the surplus for the same month in 1972. But for the four-month period, this year's million is consid- erably lower than the lion surplus for the first four months of 1972-73 fiscal year. However, finance department spokesmen said that monthly figures often show considerable variation. So far this fiscal year there have been deficits in April and June and surpluses in May and July. Earlier this month, Finance Minister John Turner predicted the yearly budgetary deficit would be lower than he had ex- pected when he brought down the budget in February. SMOOTH ECONOMY The government was taking steps to "plane down" the booming economy, he said. The budgetary deficit for the year was estimated at about million compared with the million predicted in February. The statement showed de- creases in budgetary ex- penditures of the department of regional economic expansion (DREE) programs the first four months of the current year compared with a year ago. All other departments showed in- creases. The DREE budget ex- penditures dropped to mil- lion compared with mil- lion. The department showing the greatest increase in ex- penditures was manpower and immigration. Budget ex- penditures rose to billion April to July this year com- pared with million for the same period last year. By CHISHOLM MACDONALD Canadian Press Staff Writer Many Canadian newspapers, their life-blood newsprint dwindling, are re-evaluating the size of their editions and won- dering how they will manage if the strikes situation becomes more serious. Some already have trimmed their news content and features and one, Montreal Gazette, has dispensed with its scheduled holiday edition Monday. Nearly all are carefully conserving pa- per scraps that in ordinary times might be considered waste. Adding to daily curtailments, The Canadian and Weekend magazines, national weekend supplements to daily news- papers, both have announced they will not publish Saturday because of the newsprint short- ase- Most newspapers are caught in a squeeze caused by strikes at several newsprint mills, com- pounded by the national rail strike which has slowed deliv- ery of existing supplies to the newspapers and of raw mate- rials to paper mills not on strike. In Pine Falls, Man., for ex- amp'e, the Abitibi Paper plant, which provides Winnipeg news- papers with some of their sup- plies, closed Thursday when it ran out of coal. The plant de- pends on railways for coal and sulphite. EAST GETS BY Although one the newsprint plants on strike is in New Brunswick, a Cross-Canada Sur- vey by The Canadian Press in- dicates that newspapers in the Atlantic provinces are not com- plaining much about shortages. In Newfoundland, Corner Brook Western Star says no shortage is expected. "We're right next door to the world's largest integrated pulp and paper mill operation Bow- ater) and we've just got to roll the newsprint across the a spokesman said. An executive of The Chro- nicle-Herald and The Mail Star in Halifax was more concerned. He said bath newspapers .have been "more prudent than usual" with their newsprint in recent weeks, and if problems of transportation and supply persist the size of the editions may have to be trimmed. Publishers in Prince Edward Island and New Brunswick ex- pressed little alarm. TAKE UP SLACK One Canadian International Paper (CIP) newsprint plant in New Brunswick and two in Que- bec have been on strike since late July. However, Bowater- Mersey Paper of Liverpool, N.S., and MacMillan-Rothesay Ltd., of Saint John, N.B., fill some of the need in New Bruns- wick. But in Quebec, where two Price Co. Ltd. plants are also on strike, the newspaper situ- ation is considered more serious. Peter Kohl, general manager of Montreal Gazette, which re- ceives half of its newsprint sup- ply from CIP, said: "We have managed to fill half the gap with newsprint from other suppliers but are still run- ning about 25 per cent short of normal supply." He said the newspaper has re- duced its number of pages by cutting its promotional ac- tivities, dropping the Labor Day issue and rationing the number of papers to vendors. Soccer results Princess Anne invited to U.S. LONDON (AP) Princess Anne and her fiance, Capt. Mark Phillips, have been in- vited to take part in equestrian competition in October in the United States. "At the moment we are not able to say whether she is going to a spokesman at Buckingham Pal- ace said Thursday. The prin- cess and Phillips, to be married in London Nov. 34, have been invited to compete in a com- petition sponsored by the Amer- ican Horse Association in Ham- ilton, Mass., Oct. 18-21. Ticket sale authorized in Alberta EDMONTON (CP) The provincial government has au- thorized the sale of Olympic lot- tery tickets in Alberta, the proceeds of which are to help finance the 1976 Summer Olym- pics in Montreal. In return, the Olympic Cor- poration is to assist Alberta in establishing a lottery to help finance the 1978 Comonwealth Games to be held in Edmonton. Horst Schmid, Alberta minis- ter of youth, culture and recrea- tion, said the province will also receive five per cent of the money from Alberta ticket sales with the money to go to amateur sports.

A Montreal Star spokesman said: "We're gradually Increasing pur stockpile but it's slow-mov- ing. We have started to take precautions; news content has been cut down from 33 per cent to 29 to 30 per cent and we now are looking into the commercial end. DON'T HAVE LONG "At the end of September our suppliers have the right to go on strike. If they do, we're good for 20 days after that. If there is an all-out strike, we won't be able to publish." A spokesman for Montreal La Presse said that newspaper is in good shape at the moment but there is concern about what may happen in the next few weeks. In Ontario, where there are far more newspapers than in any province in Canada, the sit- uation is regarded with mixed feelings. A spokesman for Toronto Star, with the largest circula- tion in the country, said simply: "Everything is in order." However, Earle Richards, vice-president of Toronto Globe and Mail, said that newspaper is having difficulties with pi-ice, one of its newsprint suppliers, although there are no plans to reduce the size of the paper. Things should return to normal "if the rails are operating by the weekend and a second sup- plier Abitibi) does not go on he said. ABITIBI NEGOTIATES Negotiations were continuing in Toronto today between the United Paperworkers Inter- national Union (UPIU) and Abi- tibi over a new contract for 000 paper workers at nine Abi- tibi mills, seven in Ontario and one each hi Quebec and Mani- toba. Toronto Sun, which began publication nearly two years ago and which plans a Sunday edition Sept. 16, had to cut down on' its number of pages. A spokesman said that although it has not turned away any ad- vertisers it may drop some of its comic strips and other fea- tures until the newsprint prob- lem is settled. Other Ontario newspapers also expressed some concern. A Hamilton Spectator spokes- man said "various features are dropped daily and the makeup of the paper has been affected." Editor William C. Heine of London Free Press, which uses from 50 to 60 tons of newsprint a day, said his newspaper is "in reasonably good shape fir a while but is worried about Sep- tember supplies." Publisher J. P. O'Cailaghan of Windsor star, which has cut down on the size of its editions and eliminated all of its own promotional advertising, said: "The Star will be in serious difficulty if supplies are cut off and labor disputes are not re- solved in the next few weeks." Spokesmen for Ottawa pa- pers, The Journal, The Citizen and Le Droit, said the shortage is hurting but not considered critical yet. North Bay Nuggett publisher J. F. Granger was more con- cerned. "We are experiencing news- print shortages and we have re- duced the size of our paper and eliminated some he said. "Definitely, we will be in trouble within the next three weeks if the labor disputes are not settled." Kingston Whig-Standard, not- ing a 15-per-cent cut in ship- ments from newsprint sup- pliers, has been forced to re- duce its news content by 10 per cent, said editor R. D. Owen. The newspaper has about three weeks supply of newsprint on hand. Both Winnipeg newspapers, The Tribune and The Free Press, have enough stock on hand to carry them through for a while, although The Free Press said it will have to con- serve its supply if the rail strike continues. FEATURES GO Brandon Sun, with only a 14- day supply, has cut special pages such as entertainment and travel, and reduced such features as comics and horo- scope. Other Manitoba newspapers and those in Saskatchewan, many with supplies coming in by truck, expressed little alarm although most said conservation of present material is a major concern. And all is not lost in Alberta. Edmonton Journal, which has discontinued temporarily its comic pages because of the newsprint shortage, has started to broadcast some cartoons to readers by radio. Peanuts, the Wizard of Id, Tumbleweeds and Andy Capp will live on. But, generally, with trains out and trucks at a premium, most Alberta newspapers said they were leeling the pinch. Vancouver newspapers re- ported no serious problems and a spokesman for one of their suppliers, MacMillan Bloedel Ltd., said: "Although the supply of news- print is very tight, we are able to meet the needs of our B.C. customers from a production standpoint." TAKING NO CHANCES However, a spokesman for Victoria Press Ltd., owned by FP Publications Ltd., and which prints The times and The Colonist in Victoria, was cautious: "We're just taking every step to conserve what we have. Where we used newsprint rather lavishly in the past, we now say we won't use it. It's like gold dust." Aside from The Canadian and Weekend magazines, most magazine publishers had few complaints. Robert Robertson, executive publisher of the business publi- cations division of Maclean- Hunter Ltd. which produces 60 publications, said: "We haven't experienced any shortages that would reduce the size of issues or affect publica- tion deadlines.'' Reader's Digest and Time magazine also expressed little alarm. LENSES For everyone who wears glasses Available in ALL prescriptions.
