United Press International

High winds Saturday forced military officials to again postpone a test of an unarmed U.S. cruise missile over Canada's Arctic, Canadian and U.S. officials said.

The launch at Cold Lake in Alberta province had been delayed by adverse weather Friday. The 1,500-mile test flight was tentatively rescheduled for Monday morning when weather conditions are expected to improve.
