The small airport did not have on hand the proper equipment to check the plane for explosives, but Royal Canadian Mounted Police began an inspection anyway, and declared the plane safe. They said no bomb was found and the threatened time of detonation had passed. The Greek national airline diverted the flight after a bomb threat was telephoned to its offices in Athens, said police inspector Ronald Bourne. He had said earlier that the search was expected to take most of the night, but after 10 p.m., he said the resumption of the flight was approved and passengers began getting % back on. A passenger said the pilot said before they left the plane that the threat was from Black September, a Palestinian terrorist group that has claimed responsibility for many bombings. Jennine Paschalidis of Edgewood, N.J., said the passengers were about to eat a meal when the pilot told them they were being diverted to Goose Bay because of strong winds. Not until they were on the ground did the pilot inform her and the rest of the passengers there was a bomb threat, she said. Bourne said the jet, which carried 391 passengers and a crew of 21, arrived at Goose Bay at 3 p.m. and remained isolated at the end of a runway, away from civilian and military terminals and hangars. The airport, a Canadian Forces base used by several NATO air forces, is able to handle big military planes, but it has only a small civilian terminal, used for Eastern Provincial Airways Boeing 737 jets and small local flights. It is not equipped to handle commercial jets as large at a 747. "We don't have the equipment we need to search the baggage compartments and cargo containers," Bourne said. "These planes (747s) just don't come here." Bourne said the search was slowed by the lack of bomb-detection equipment at the airport. A police dog trained to sniff for explosives was available at Gander International Airport, a major refueling stop for trans-Atlantic flights, but that was about 500 miles away, and he said police were not planning to bring the dog to Goose Bay by small plane unless it proved necessary. Passengers did not use emergency escape chutes but left the aircraft normally, using trucks with stairways mounted on the back. Paschalidis said the passengers had been comfortable enough in the terminal but were a little afraid of getting back on the same plane. "You never know, they might find it, they might not.... I would like it if they'd bring in another plane or something," she said. Athens airport, where the flight originated, was criticized for its security following the June 14 hijacking of a TWA flight to Rome. An American passenger was killed and dozens of others were held hostage until they were released in early July. Opposition protests Volcano starts r . f . trembling again against government Kansas operators announced 76 new locations, including 23 wildcats, and completed 73 tests during the past week.

BOGOTA, Colombia (AP) — Nevado del Ruiz volcano trembled again Sunday and blocks of ice drifted down rivers encircling the Armero Valley, prompting the government to keep a state of "maximum alert" for fear of another disaster. Thousands of people, mostly farmers, spent the night on higher ground, huddled in mountain caves as torrential rains poured down the valley's slopes. The government ordered settlers to evacuate Saturday after the snowcapped volcano rained sulf uric ash at dawn for the first time since a devastating Nov. 13 eruption buried the town of Armero under mud and destroyed 13 villages. That eruption melted part of the volcano's cone of ice and snow, sending a 150>foot-high wall of mud down the Lagunilla River. Mud and debris destroyed Armero, once a prosperous coffee-growing town about 105 miles northwest of the capital of Bogota in the state of Tolima. About 23,000 of Armero's 28,000 residents were killed or missing, and 2,000 people died in Chinchina, 22 miles west of the 17,700-foot-high Andean volcano. On Saturday, police using sirens roused about 15,000 peasants from six river valleys and gave them blankets and food for their trek to higher ground. Red Cross Director Ramiro Lozano Neira said the state of maximum alert is a preventive measure that keeps motorists away from the affected zone to enable speedy evacuation in event of an eruption. Pet of the week ISLAMABAD, Pakistan (AP) — In the first demonstrations since martial law was lifted, the opposition Pakistan People's Party conducted protests across the country Sunday to honor their executed leader and called for the overthrow of President Mohammad Zia ul-Haq. Protests in all of Pakistan's major cities marked the 58th anniversary of the birth of Prune Minister Zulfikar Ali Bhutto, founder of the Pakistan People's Party, the largest opposition unit. Bhutto was ousted by a military coup headed by Zia in 1977 and was executed in 1979 after being found guilty of conspiring to murder a political opponent. "Death to dog Zia!" a crowd of about 3,000 people chanted in demonstrations in Rawalpindi. "Hang Zia'.Long live Bhutto!" Riot police with rifles, tear gas guns, shields and bamboo canes were posted at rally sites around the country, but no trouble was reported. The crowds at protests in Karachi, Rawalpindi, Peshawar, Lahore and other cities dispersed quietly and police did not intervene when protesters chanted anti-government slogans and waved party flags. Roumpf Huynh Journal Photo HOMELESS — This 9- month-old male dachshund is ready for adoption at the Salina Animal Shelter on State Street Road. Shelter hours are 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. and 3 to 5:30 p.m. Monday though Friday, and 10 a.m. to noon Saturday. Two area youths win poster contest Two Salina-area youths were state winners in a Kansas Public Health Association poster contest. Hai Huynh, 6, was the state winner in the preschool-to-6 age group and Julie Roumpf, 14, was the state winner in the 13-to-18 age group. They became eligible for the state competition by winning from among 175 entries in the Salina-Saline County Health Department contest. The theme, "Reasons Not to Use Tobacco," was designed to make people aware of the hazards of smoking and to promote the Great American Smokeout. The winning posters will be displayed Feb. 19 at a legislative dinner in Topeka, when Huynh and Roumpf will be presented with a certificate of achievement from the Kansas Public Health Association. Correction The hometown of Wanda Gillett was reported incorrectly in a story in Sunday's paper. Gillett was raised in Palmer, a town in Washington County. Tikka Khan, secretary-general of the People's Party, said in a speech in Rawalpindi nothing had changed with the lifting of martial law Dec. 30 after 8% years of military rule. "Martial law has just changed into civilian dress," he said. Khan and other speakers also attacked the United States, criticizing the U.S. government for supporting Zia and charging that Washington had backed the coup against Bhutto. "Zia is an American stooge!" said Qazi Sultan Mahmoud, a party leader, as the crowd at Rawalpindi chanted, "American dogs, American dogs!" Zia remains as president after being declared the winner of a five-year term in a December 1984 referendum in which he ran unopposed. He is still commander of the army and holds broad powers over the new civilian government of Prime Minister Mohammad Khan Junejo, whom he appointed. About 5,000 people attended demonstrations in the coastal city of Karachi, and about 4,000 people turned out for a protest in the eastern city of Lahore. Groups ranging from a few dozen to hundreds attended scores of similar events around the country. Large, garishly decorated birthday cakes were displayed to honor Bhutto's birthday. The crowds chanted "Bhutto will live forever!" and waved banners and flags decorated with the late leader's picture and political slogans. Khan said nothing would change in Pakistan until Zia was ousted and the people could choose their leaders in free elections. He said the Pakistan People's Party was the only popular party in the country. Marymount ready for registration Registration for the Marymount College spring semester will take place Jan. 13.

Pickup theft is crime of the week The Salina Police Department has announced the theft of a pickup as the crime of the week for Salina Crimestoppers, a non-profit organization that pays cash rewards for information that helps stop crime. Unknown people between 6:15 p.m. March 26 and 7:20 a.m. March 27 took a red-maroon 1980 Cheverolet pickup with a red topper from the front of 205 Hartland, according to police reports. The pickup had chrome bumpers, silver running boards, a citizen's band radio antenna and a Ducks Unlimited sticker on the back window i of the topper. The truck was bearing Kansas license SA 7261. Those who have information about this or any other crime, or where the stolen property may be located may call Salina Crimestoppers at 825-2000. Tipsters may receive cash rewards of up to $1,000 and are not required to give their names. Late-night bus schedules to coincide The two buses that arrive daily in Salina between midnight and 4 a.m. will be re-scheduled so both arrive at the same time, according to David Hays, bus station manager. Beginning Tuesday, Trailways buses between Kansas City and Denver and between Lincoln, Neb., and Wichita both will arrive at 3:50 a.m., so passengers changing buses will not have to wait for a connection. They are the only routes scheduled for arrival in Salina when the bus station is closed—from 11 p.m. to 7 a.m. Passengers who have not made previous transportation arrangements upon arrival when the station is closed can call a taxi on a pay telephone outside the station, or walk to a nearby motel or truckstop, Hays said. Both Salina taxi services — Al's City Taxi and Yellow Cab — have 24- hour service. But they receive few calls for service at the bus station during early-morning hours, spokesmen for both companies said. People waiting at the station sometimes call the Salina Police Department for help and are referred to a taxi service, said Assistant Police Chief Glen Kochanowski. Police know the regular bus schedules and often patrol the bus station when buses arrive early in the morning, he said. Wichita man to run for Congress WICHITA (AP) — Bob Knight, a two-term Wichita city commissioner, has formally announced his candidacy for the Republican nomination for the Fourth district congressional seat. "I share with most citizens a growing doubt as to whether or not Congress can accomplish even its most basic business, like setting an annual budget," Knight said Saturday. Knight is seeking the post held by Rep. Dan Glickman, a Wichita Democrat. Knight, 44, announced his candidacy during a seven-city tour of the district. He said he and Glickman disagree over the level of government involving in solving problems. "Dan believes government has a solution for any particular problem society has," Knight said. "I don't. I think a lot of solutions don't reside with government." Knight said he does not intend to resign his city post or his job as a bond salesman for First Securities, Inc., but might step down from the commission if the congressional campaign becomes too time- consuming.
