Control The Upper Kanawha Valley Firemens Mutual Aid Assn. up in arms about a recent county court order placing all teer fire departments .under control of the Civil Defense, A spokesman for .the group charged the court with a "blatant attempt to saddle the volunteer fire departments with a notorious do-nothing organization by blackmail methods."

SHAFFER Praises FBI WASHINGTON-W-John H Shaffer, Federal Aviation ad* ministrator, gave special praise Saturday to the FBI for its cool, expert handling of hijacking incidents. "FBI agents on the scene have had to make some extremely difficult decisions in which the dangers of taking positive action with regard to the safety of hostages bad to be balanced against the dangers of nonaction," Shaffer said. "I believe they have met this challenge in a mature and responsible way in avoiding the use of excessive force in all cases, and preserving lives of a significant number of innocent people in Uwprocess." Shaffer, in a summary of recent developments, said all 16 attempts to hijack aircraft for ransom thus far this year have failed. The persons involved have .been arrested, killed or are under the control of a foreign government, he said. Shaffer said that "trying to hijack an aircraft for profit is the world's greatest exercise in futility." . .. ' "Given this perfeqt failure rate for hijacking--extortions this year, it is amazing that anyone could still delude himself about his ultimate fate when undertaking such a venture," Shaffer said. ; "The typical hijacker--extortionist is neither a stable nor rational personality, but one would think that even the most disturbed individual would have gotten the message by now." A Federal AViation Administration summary of hijacking extortions showed 19 attempts since last fall. Of $7,712,100 paid out in rait som money, all'but $503,000 has been recovered, the. FAA said. The sura, outstanding includes $200,000 paid to an individual who gave bis. name as P. Cooper, who disappeared after parachuting from an airliner last fall. It also includes $303,000 paid to but not recovered from a man who surrendered in Honduras.
