Aldmm#s ILL IkmS The People "The United States Senate last which the President has deter- week took bit in teeth and passed mined is encouraging hijacking. a tough anti-hijacking bill that, The bill provides for am- hopefully, will bring world-wide position of the death penalty or attention to the need to put a a minimum 20-year prisonsen- stop to air piracy. Although tence for acts of air piracy and hijacking of airplanes started as an internal problem of the United States, it has now grown to alarming world-wide pro- portions, to the point that the lives of millions of air tra- velors are endangered and mil- lions of dollars worth of valua- ble aircraft have been diverted from their flight paths and some destroyed. One of the major reasons international political hijacking continues unabated is the widely known fact that certain nations encourage or condone air piracy by refusing to pu- nish or extradite hijackers who seek sanctuary in their terri- tory, apparently believing that aircraft piracy is a le- gitimate expression of politi- cal or social dissent or an ac- ceptably means of escaping to political asylum. I have long felt that if swift and strict punishment were given and publicized, the in- cidence of hijacking would un- doubtedly decrease. This is es- sentially what the Senate's anti- hijacking bill attempts to do. It gives authority to the Presi- dent to suspend air service to any foreign nation which he de- termines is encouraging air- craft hijacking by acting in a manner inconsistent with the international agreements signed last year in The Hague, and to suspend foreign air carrier ser- vice between the United States and any nation which continues to provide for or accept air service from another country makes threats to hijack or des- troy an aircraft a felony pu- nishable by a $5,000 fine or five years imprisonment, or both. Also provided for are a new airport security police force and authority to screen all air- line passengers, baggage and freight. There is no airtight guaran- tee that this legislation or in- ternational agreements will completely eliminate the sanc- tuary given to air pirates, par- ticularly since less than half the nations of the world com- munity have agreed to The Ha- gue Convention so far. But this forthright action by the United States is a substantial begin- ning toward the goal of world- wide enforcement of laws against this offense. Piracy on the high seas was eliminated on- ly after pirates no longer had the security of a safe refuge from justice. Air piracy can. be defeated in the same manner. Good Definition If someone would ask you why a ship is always referred to as "she other" you might give this explanation. "It costs a lot to keep her in paint and powder, she'll drift off if you don't keep her tied down, she makes her best showing in a high wind and it takes a man to handle her." CONSER VA lION NE~S The Soil Conservation Ser- vice has released a new pub- lication containing useful infor- mation for all farmers, ran- chefs, and sportsmen. Entitled "Signs of Good Hunt- ing and Fishing," the 31 page booklet is available free at SCS offices throughout the nation. Five short paragraphs open the key to its contents: "The wildlife you want to see and harvest is an agricul- tural crop. It is called 'farm game' because it is grown on privately owned farms and ranches that produce other agri- cultural crons such as corn, cot- ton, livesto, k and timber. "Wildlife must have food and a place to live. Food, cover and water for wildlife are by products of soil conservation practices. That is why strip- cropping, hedges, windbreaks, field borders, ponds, and many other conservation practices are signs of good hunting and fishing. "Your hunting and fishing can be better if you recognize and know the effect of the conser- vation practices that are good signs of wildlife land. "Your welcome on farms and ranches will be greater if you remember the signs of good sportsmanship. "Here is a guide to both kinds of signs." Other signs of good hunting and fishing discussed in the booklet include protected wood- land, contour farming, stubble mulching, irrigation reser- voirs, improved marshes, ma- naged grazing, cover crops, and grassed waterways. The booklet offers sportsmen II suggestions concerning signs of good sportsmanship: "Ask permission to hunt and fish. Show appreciation for hunt- privileges. Respect private pro- perty. Leave fences and gates as you found them. Do not da- mage crops. Be careful with firearms. Obey fish and game regulations. Extinguish camp- fires and cigarettes. Pick up your trash. Be friendly, cour- teous, and considerate. Remem- ber that you are a guest."
