MAIL Sunday, Jan. 9, 1972 . CITY 14-C The Arizona Republic fSplash goes cargo New system speeds unloading United Press SAft FRANCISCO - When the sailors aboard the huge, odd-looking freighter tossed a Jmultimillion dollar cargo into San Francisco Bay. they weren't taking part in a mutiny, just a revolution in ship-(tag.,. The cry of this revolution is !"LASH," acronym for Lighter JAboard Ship. !;The "lighter" is. a 61-foot Jcpvered barge resembling a gigantic tin can. It contains ue vessel's cargo. "When a dockside spot can't fe found, an increasing pro-Bern at today's crowded ports, he lighter is lifted from the ship by an onboard crane and dropped into the water. The barge is then pushed or towed toy tug to the dock. The procedure is just the reverse for fading. Pacific Far East Line has Joshed its future to this new eoncept with two LASH ships forking the Pacific and four gore on the way. "Next month the w o r 1 d 's first major terminal designed specifically for LASH ship- Sng will open on a 48-acre te here with a price tag of fl.5 million. PFEL has taken long-term lease on the en-Jtre facility which will serve Ss home base for its LASH eet. "Eventually we will replace all our conventional ships Jtith LASH vessel s," said George J. Gmelch, the line's Sice president for operation. ! Hobbies Industry expects to rack up $1 billion this year By RON S. HEINZEL Los Angeles Times Service HOLLYWOOD -The first model aviation world championship in Doylestown, Pa., - last year drew thousands of pectators to watch hundreds of hobbyists compete. Interest was so high in Europe that a Eoup of model airplane buffs altered a DC8 to attend. -It's an indication of the growing popularity of hob-lies. Even more leisure time end affluence are expected to flropel the hobby industry into g $1 billion business this year, according to Harold Carstens, Resident of the Hobby Industry Association of America. Total sales volume rose ffom $792 million in 1968 to $006 .million in 1970 the latent year for which figures are available. . . iThe hobby business draws its customers from all levels of society from the elderly ahd affluent to youngsters yjith limited spending money. They like just about anything tfeat runs, flies or sits on a shelf. . (Carstens says the recession hd little effect on the growth of hobby sales generally, but . some regions suffered, including southern California. iDon Beck, proprietor of Reginald Denny's Hobby Shop here, admits that sales last year were less than hoped far, but says business was still brisk. Reginald Denny's includes among its customers s$me of Hollywood's better-known names. a ;One customer is Dan Block-.. er, the banana-fingered giant who plays Hoss Cartwright in the "B o n a n z a" television series. I You mght expect Blocker to; favor models related to violent activities such as tanks oi aircraft carriers. Not so. I"He buys material to carve delicate tiki dolls," Beck ".Another steady customer is i : f Jet leasing inan named , . - ' . JRobert E. Dell'Artino has been appointed vice president-aircraft for Greyhound Leasing and Financial Corp., a subsidiary of The Greyhound Corp. W. Carroll Bumpers, president of GLF, said Dell'Artino wQl be responsible for ar-rcpging lease financing for commercial jet aircraft, a mfcjor item for the company which ranks as the world's largest general equipment lessor , Dell'Artino was vice president and western regional manager prior to his new appointment He will have headquarters at the company's n&r executive offices in Pbpe&Jx. ; International 'Its SS Thomas' E. Cuffe and the SS Golden Bear are the pioneering LASH ships in the Pacific. The 820 foot ships, capable of 23 knots, can carry 49 lighters and 334 conventional nonfloatable containers. ..; "The LASH method reduces a 70-day voyage to about 42 days because of the time s a v e d in unloading," said Gmelch. He sees a future for the technique in harbors around the world. "We signed the first contract to build a LASH ship anywhere in the world. Now some- other lines have them too. Three are working on the North Atlantic run to the Mediterranean and two from the gulf to northern Europe," he said. "Even in Europe the idea is catching on. Several lines there are ordering LASH ships. Someday all LASH barges will be interchangable from line to line." Gmlech, 51, seems surprised that the method wasn't developed a long time ago. "In r a i 1 r o a d i n g you wouldn't have the engine stay with the cars," he said. "The power plant would keep moving." ... Captain Sven M. Rogenes the Cuffe's skipper, said his ship "can get in and out of port in six or eight hours" as compared with the days it takes conventional ships. grow in popularity Chris Robinson, star of the former TV series "12 O'Clock High," based on Air Force activities in World War II Naturally, he's a model airplane buff. . "Wrong," Beck says, "he's interested in building ships." Beck and his brother John bought the store 13 years ago. Before that the brothers built custom models for motion picture studios. ." ' The shop, which claims to be the largest in the West, has annual sales" in excess of $75,000," Beck says. Inventory' ranges from 29-cent models, to $500 radio-controlled, gas-powered jnodel race cars. The U.S. space program gave a big boost to the model business until recently, the owners of Denny's found. Every time a space shot was in the news sales of rocket and space capsule models jumped. That is, until the last moon landing, Beck says. "We had one customer who talked about nothing but the space program. The walls of his home were covered with pictures abo'ut the space shots and he bought every rocket and capsule model put on the market. But after the last landing he took everything down and put up sport pictures." The Hobby Industry Association has been striving to delineate between hobbies and toys in order to avoid consumerism and regulatory problems. A radio-controlled, gasoline-powered model race car capable of doing more than 30 mph, for example, could be considered hazardous for youngsters but reasonably safe when controlled by an adult. Price alone should remove the model race cars from the toy category. A fully equipped radio-controlled racer, which is used in competition on outdoor tracks, costs upwards of $500 about the same as radio-controlled model airplanes. Practically every type of hobby is enjoying increased popularity, including slot-car racing, which went into a serious slump a few years ago.

"Crafts is the fastest growing category in the hobby field today," he says. Sales of crafts materials hit $210 million in 1970 compared with $150 million in 1968. .
