To Drop Charter Flight Rfeg TRIUMPH • PORSCHE • DATSUIM • BMW WASHINGTON (AP) — New government rules will allow Americans to take low- cost charter flights to any part of the world without having to join a group or buy ground accommodations such as hotels. The new charters, similar to those already popular in Europe, require a traveler to buy a round-trip ticket in advance. But the "affinity group" requirement is being eliminated and travelers won't have to stay for minimum periods, except in nine European countries where visitors will be required to stay at least seven days. Tickets on charter flights traditionally have cost about half the cost of a coach seat on a scheduled 'flight. The new rules issued Thursday by the Civil Aeronautics Board cover both domestic and'overseas flights and will go into effect on Oct. 7. The new rules face possible legal challenges from scheduled airlines that generally have opposed more liberal charter rules. On the other hand, a charter organization has already said it will seek a court order to strike down remaining charter restrictions. Because the new charters, known as Advance Booking Charters, do not require passengers to belong to any organized group, the CAB ruling might lessen the lure that some travelers found in "affinity groups." The CAB had required everyone on the plane to share an interest other than traveling. This encouraged the growth of social and occupational organizations that also traveled. In fact, some of these groups had no purpose other than to qualify as"affinity groups" under CAB rules: Under the new rules, there is no minimum fare and charter operators will be allowed to set the fare on their own. Countries where the European rules will apply are Belgium, West Germany, Finland, France, Ireland, Italy, Netherlands, Switzerland and the United Kingdom. To qualify for the charters, passengers will be required to buy their tickets at least 30 days in advance for domestic flights and at least 45 days in advance for European flights. Tickets will be purchased from independent charter brokers who will organize the flights. The flights must be round trips with predetermined fixed dates for departure and return, and all passengers must travel together on both legs of the charter. All charters must contain at least 40 people. The charter operator has the right to Page 14 Garden City Telegram Tuesday, September 7,1976 impose a penalty on purchasers who cancel at a time when the operator no longer is permitted to sell unsold or canceled seats. And the operator can cancel the flight if it does not meet conditions specified in the contract. The CAB said it adopted the different rules for European destinations because those countries already have similar charters in use and the board did not want, to create too much disparity between U.S. charters and those operated in Europe. Firestone Howe Will Defy Demo | THE END Leaders, Stay in Race SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Calling it "the most crucial decision of my life," Utah Rep. Allan T. Howe says he'll defy state Democratic leaders and stay in the race for reelection despite two convictions for soliciting sex. Howe's wife Marlene, her hand on his shoulder, expressed support for her husband's decision and belief in his innocence at a news conference. "If there are people out there who think he's guilty, then I think they should start looking to their own houses, and remember 'judge not that ye be not judged,'" she said. Howe, who faces the prospect of campaigning with no party support or financing, called on voters to "be forgiving."' "I have said repeatedly that I know the people of Utah are fair," the first-term congressman told reporters. He said he believed the campaign will be conducted on issues. Polls published in Utah have shown Howe behind either of two Republican opponents The New Garden City Monument Company IS UNDER NEW MANAGEMENT 301 East Fulton 276-2681 Garden City, Kansas SEE BILL GRUBE FOR YOUR MEMORIAL NEEDS.

Democratic Gov. Calvin L. Hampton said, "I think he made a mistake. He can't be elected." Utah Sen. Frank E. Moss, also a Democrat, said he was disappointed and would support a write-in candidate chosen by the party. 'By law, Democrats cannot remove Howe's name from the November ballot without his consent. Sources in the House say Howe Has been refused campaign money from the House Democratic Campaign Committee. Howe spent about $85,000 in his 1974 campaign and said he has raised about $25,000 so far this year. Howe, arrested June 12 and charged with offering two police decoy prostitutes $20 for sex, pleaded innocent and was convicted in City Court and again on his appeal in District Court. He said he has not decided whether to appeal his case further. IS HERE Wide-Side 1976 TRUCK CLOSEOUT WE'D BUY A BIGGER AD AND LIST THE PRICES-BUT WITH OUR BIG DISCOUNTS, WE CAN'T AFFORD IT!
