MONDAY, NOVEMHEK 20, 19-M Plan Transport For Postwar Use Lockheed To Build Plane For Genera! Domestic Purposes CHICAGO, Nov. 20 (U.P.)—Lock- liwd Aircraft Corporation has announced a postwar nlrplnuc specifically designed lo provide low- cost, short-haul air transport for ccncral •(l-imrctlc use. Robert E. Gross, Lockheed prcsi- tlont, says She new plujie, imnicd W.c Salnru 75, will bring Hying lo •viiam street. Two feeder line operators already have placed orders for the plane, subject to Civil Aeronautic Board approval of their route applications. Tile plane Is a. lilgli-wing, all- metal, laud-based vehicle carrying 14 |)ts.<cngers, a crew of two and cai'fo. II is powered by two 525- horsc-imwer engines. It has a ci'uis- ine speed ol more-than 200 miles nu hour and a lop speed ol 2-IC miles an hour over a maximum lantjc of 1COO miles witli eight passengers and crew. A low landing speed of 73 miles per hour, mnkes it, passible for the plajie to use small airports. Interchangeability of parts and quick- change rower plant units are important economy features. Gross says these characteristics make the Saturn an ideal plane for inmkllne operation through .spare traffic areas, or for short hops between cities. Grots tays he hopes Hibstantir.1 sales in Europe iuul other areas where services over .short distances with high frequency of [light!, prohibit use of more expensive greater-capacity planes. Production of the Saturn 75 will be started as soon as military production, on which Lockheed factories are now fully engaged, permits. ^British Using 'Nazi Submarine Against U-Boats LONDON, NOV. 20. (UP)—The British are operating a Nazi submarine. But no one has been more surprised tlmn the Nazis themselves, that is, the Nazis who were fooled. For three years now, the British- have been operating an up-to-the- minute Nazi sub which had been captured intact by British sea and air forces off Iceland. The British renamed the sub the Graph and trained a special crew to man her. The first time out under the British nag, the sub attacked another German U-boat by ear.—that is, highly sensitive instruments led the skipper to the target. He only needed two brief glimpses of the enemy before opening fire. • • i > And since then, the Graph has played a prominent role in luring Nazi ships and U-boats to their destruction.
