"That's right, sonny —we're not hijacking this plane to Havana—We want to go to ST. PETE!" Giant Jets Fly 5,000 Troops To West Germany Editorial . . . Skyjacker Poses Potential Peril CKYJACKING is becoming so much a part of the pattern of *^ our times that the wise traveler may be the one who. in packing foi* a flight to Labrador, tosses in a few items of tropical clothing just in case. Unscheduled stops in Havana can almost be counted on to provide a continuing supply of front-page stories and fresh material for gag writers. Not everyone is laughing, however. Particularly not the airlines. Helpless themselves to come up with any sure way of protecting their passengers from the inconvenience, and the very real danger, posed by the airborne seizures, they are now asking the United Nations to take action. The International Air Transport Association, a nongovernment organization representing 103 scheduled airlines, almost all those operating on international routes, wants skyjacking to b* declared an international crime in a class with piracy and genocide. It is also asking world governments to sneed nn rotiHcritVm of a convention drawn up in Tokyo in 1963 which, among other things, would require signatory nations to release immediately seized nlanes, crews and passengers forced to land in their territory. This, of course, has generally been the case even without the 'ormnlity of a treaty. With the exception of an Israeli airliner forced to land in Algeria some time back, skyjacked planes and persons have been on their way again after minimum delay. International action is certainly called for. But declaring skyjacking to be an international crime would not in itself lv r noucrh. This would be merely formalizing what is alreadv fenemHv recognized. Punishment must also be fashioned to fit the cime And bett 01 * than nunishmen* won'd he nveventinn. What might turn the hick in both resneets would be a binding international agreement obligating trnvernmsn^s to take immediate and severe punitive action against skv 'ackers landing in their territories, thus removing any nrosnect of asvliim at the end of the line. But this would be difficult if not impossible to achieve since some eovernments. notably the one most immediately involved. Havana, are not inclined toward international cooperation. Meanwhile, we fly on lurk. So far there have benn no in >nrips 01- worse. But luck can run out at anv time. Un+il some neons of annlyin? international brakes to air-borne lawlessness is found, potential disaster will continue to be an unlisted passenger.

Masterpieces Of Art Defaced NEW YORK (AP) — Rembrandt's "Christ With a Pilgrim's Staff" and nine other paintings have been defaced at the Metix»politan Museum of Art in what a museum official said was a protest against a special exhibit on Harlem. Small "H"s — apparently standing for Harlem—were scratched into the. varnish covering the paintings. The scratches can be removed. The museum's vice president and curator, Theodore Rousseau Jr., said, "It was a horrible gesture, and' obviously aimed at the show, 'Harlem on My Mind'." Museum Director Thomas P. F. Moving, his voice shaking with anger, said, "The intention of this example of poisonous vandalism is the most grave in the history of this institution." The exhibit included photo murals, slides and recordings. Protesters claim it presents a white man's view of Harlem. Pickets, mostly Negroes, marched in front of the museum Thursday night during a preview showing. Today In History By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Today is Saturday, Jan. 18, the 18th day of 1969. There are 347 days left in the year. Today's highlight in history: On this date in 1944, Gen. Dwight D; Eisenhower, commander in chief of Allied Forces in Europe, explained the purpose of his new post in a world wide broadcast: "We are going to hit the enemy. And keep hitting him until the last measure of Nazi resistance is crushed." On this date: In 1782, Daniel Webster, American statesman, o 'rafor, and one time seci'etary of state, was born. in" i912, English explorer C ipt. Robert F. Scott and four companions reached the North Pole, but found Norwegian Roald Amundsen had preceded them by five weeks. In 1919, French President Raymond Poincare formally opened the Versailles Peace Conference. In 1943, Moscow announced the lifting of the German siege of Leningrad, which had lasted since the autumn of 1941. j In 1943, to save manpower j and steel cutting equipment, j commercial bakers in the United States were directed to stop the sale of sliced bread for the duration of the war. In 1944, jazz music invaded the Metropolitan Opera House as the first concert was performed at the citadel of classical music. Benny Goodman, Louis Armstrong and Arti Shaw were among the performers. In 1957, a U.N. economic mission reported that it found Hungary's economic position precarious, widespread unemployment, food shortages and a strmdstill of heavy industry resulting from the 1956 revolt. Ten years ago — The Soviet Union's first deputy prime minister, Anastas Mikoyan, continued his nationwide tour of the United States.

New Chief State Highway Engineer The 300-mile asphalt road from Kabul to Kandahar in Afghanistan has a special lane for camels. SPRINGFIELD, 111. (API — Gov. Richard B. Ogilvie has filed another top job in his new administration by naming Richard H. Golterman of Inverness as chief state highway engineer. Golterman, 45, has been Cook County highway superintendent since 1967. Before that he was a construction supervisor for the slate highway division. In a news conference Thursday, Ogilvie said 1 his own people are looking at the state's critical t revenue problem but that he would make no recommendations on taxes until a state commission appointed by former Gov. Samuel Shapiro submits a report. It is expected late in March. Oglivie announced he will deliver a "state of the state" message but has not set a date for it. He declined to say whether he will retain Franklin H. Rust of Bloomington as state fair manager. Ogilvie said His plans for reorganizing some code departments are being prepared and he.hopes the legislature will approve them at the current six- month session. Some of the changes he has in mind 1 , as outlined during his campaign, are creation of a Department of Transportation, combining a new Department of Natural Resources with the existing Conservation Department and establishing a Department of Corrections separate from the Public Safety Department.
