CAB Ruling AlloVs Watertown Bypass By BOB STROM WATERTOWN - The Civil Aeronautics Board (CAB) has given permission to Allegheny Airlines and Air North Inc. — its commuter — to suspend service between Water-town and Massena-Ogdensburg. The CAB ruling became effective Saturday, and was received Monday by Watertown International Airport Commission Chairman Karl R. Burns. . CAB gave its approval to a request by Allegheny and Air North that flights between Massena-Ogdensburg and Syracuse be allowed to bypass Watertown. The CAB order mandates that Air North provide three round trips between Massena and Syracuse and Ogdens-burg and Syracuse daily, and two round trips from Rutland, Vt., to Albany each day except Saturday. The service change "will free seats on the affected flights for Massena-Ogdensburg-Syracuse passengers by removing the relatively larger Watertown-Syracuse leg. and will enable Air North to schedule two new turnaround round trips between Watertown and Syracuse to better meet the peak summer demand in that (Watertown) market," CAB said. Traffic figures for the period October, 1973, to February showed the Watertown-Massena-Ogdensburg flight averaged less than one passenger a day in each of the markets. Based on these figures, CAB made the decision that "There is no need for service" in this market. Retention of the requirement that Air North continue to provide service from Watertown to the two northern com munities "will only deprive Air North of the scheduling flexibility it needs to offer Massena and Ogdensburg the pattern of expedited commuter service these points need," CAB said. CAB also described the average number of passengers per flight on the north run between the three communities as "miniscule," and said the service is "virtually unused." Dropping the requirement for the flights between Watertown and Massena-Ogdesnburg "should enable Air North to improve its financial condition and allow the carrier to provide a viable commuter service which is commensurate with the traffic-generating potential of both Massena and Ogdensburg," CAB ruled. The CAB order came as no surprise, since E.A. . Deeds, head of Air North, disclosed several weeks ago that his airline and Allegheny would seek permission for the change. Deeds explained the change in service would allow Air North to operate what will effectively be a "shuttle service" between Watertown and Syracuse this summer, to provide more passenger seats to help meet the community's summer travel demands. In addition, Air North will have its Massena-Ogdensburg flight stop in Watertown to pick up additional passengers, if there is a need for the extra seats on the north commuter flight. Air North has purchased a fourth 19-passenge" "T*» h Otter" which will be used to provide the extrr r " service.

"The Adirondacks are too precious to be lost," the commissioner declared, "and the state will appeal the court ruling permitting development of the Tondelay housing project at Tupper Lake. "I will fight to the ground for sound development," Biggane said. With respect to American resources, he said, "Our cornucopia is not inexhaustible." Speaking of Watergate, the commissioner said, "There are some men who reached for power at any cost, who threw aside moral principles.

Bence, 856 LeRay St., was listed in good condition Monday at the House of the Good Samari tan, where he is being treated for an apparent heart attack. The Watertown postmaster, who is also a part-time employe of The Post-Standard, was hospitalized early Thursday for tests for a possible heart attack, and was admitted to the hospital's coronary care unit. He has been transferred to regular floor care, posal in the suggested agreement calling for the appointment of a watermaster who would make recommendations to the court about future controversies that might arise under the settlement. .. "Such a procedure would materially change the function of the court in these interstate contests," the court said. It suggested that the parties have "other and more appropriate means" of settling their dispute, such as an interstate compact. Vermont took the dispute to the Supreme Court in 1971, saying the heap of decaying wood chips and organic material was creating a "gross public nuisance." The sludge is accumulated discharge from International's pulp mill at Ticonderoga. Vermont sued New York and the company, demanding removal of the giant lump of sludge, which some conservationists said was killing Lake Champlain. Both New York and the com-. pany, and later the federal government, opposed the demand for its removal, saying removal would be uneconomical and might do more harm Building Projects In recent negotiations, Cut ter said, Vermont placed emphasis on obtaining safeguards against environmental harm in the future. "The proposed decree thus intentionally makes no provision for any present dredging," he told the court. The proposed settlement called for appointment of a master to whom the parties would refer matters after first having recourse to federal and New York regulatory agencies. He could then hold hearings and make recommendations. Vermont agreed to drop claims against the company for operations of its old mill, which closed in 1971. The proposed settlement included pollution-control standards for operation of the company's new mill, which opened the same year.
