the plane's rear door yesterday
afternoon. officials said.
The two skyjackers, who had
threatened to blow up the plane
unless it was refueled and
flown to Sweden or another
country, let four deadlines pass
without incident.
At one point, they were of-
fered a light plane to fly them;
out of Finland, but turned down
the offer, airport officials said.
FINLAND HAS AN agree-
ment with the Soviet Union, its
big eastern neighbor, to auto-
matically extradite all air hi-
jackers.
The hostages freed from the
plane early in the day were re-
ported in good condition and
the only injury was a twisted
ankle suffered by one of the
men who escaped. They were
flown' back to the Soviet Union
yesterday evening.
The conditions of the last 20

The plane, with 78 passengers
and crew aboard in addition to
the hijackers, was comman-
deered Sunday night on a 175-
mile domestic hop from Petro-
zavodsk, the capital of Soviet
Karelia, to Leningrad.
The hijackers demanded to
be flown to Stockholm, where
another Soviet hijacker land-
ed in May, and was not shipped
back to Russia.

A POLICEMAN escorts several women hostages released from a Soviet Areoflot jet in Helsinki,
Finland yesterday. The hijackers later boarded a small plane and left for an undisclosed loca-
tion.

Kaalas told Swedish TV the So.
viet pilot apparently bluffed the
hijackers into thinking they
were landing in Stockholm
when he set down in Helsinki.
The Swedes subsequently de-
clared they would not let the hi-
jackers into Sweden, and Fn-

are equally concerned with non-

"Sure, you can have $10 an

"but we also need protection."
According to McCarger,
greater protection for sick and
disabled employes is necessary
because, "a number of people
have developed spine and back
difficulties not universally iden-
tified as work related. These
people need protection like dis-
ability insurance or a sick
