Judge Declines To Impose Fines Air Controllers Ordered Back To Work Pg. 4 See. 2 The Pittsburgh Press, Sunday, April 12, 1 970 1 request. Even before Hart Issued his return to work order, the. FAA said the "sick-out" was steadily declining. However, it said more than 1,000 controllers remained off the job. Spruce-Up For Lenin MOSCOW (UPI) Millions of Soviet citizens took up rakes and paintbrushes yesterday in a gigantic spring spruce-up in honor of the 100th birthday of Lenin. Nobel Prize Winner To Speak At Chatham Dr. George Wald, professor of biology at Harvard University, will discuss "Art and the Eye" at 8 p. m. tomorrow in the Chatham College Chapel. Wald was a co-winner of the 1967 Nobel Prize in physiology and medicine with two other doctors. WASHINGTON (UPI) - A federal judge ordered air traffic controllers Involved In the 'sick-out" to return to work without delay but declined a government request to Impose fines on them. The order by Judge George S. Hart yesterday Inched the 18-day-old dispute between the controllers and Federal Avia-tlon Administration (FAA) closer to a settlement. Attorney F. Lee Bailey, executive director of the Professional Air Traffic Controllers Organization (PATCO), said he expects to see "some controllers begin checking in at FAA facilities" as a result of the order. Under terms of the order, those checking In will have to undergo medical examinations before being allowed to work. The judge also ordered controllers claiming illness to furnish doctors' certificates, and ordered PATCO to send tele grams to locals around the nation advising men to return to work. The government asked Hart to fine rank-and-file controllers involved in the "sick-out" $10 a day and to fine PATCO officials $100 a day. But he did not approve the For home delivery of The Press, phone 263-1121. I ' ' ' J Harold T. Sherlock, 31, of 11-2 Midway Dr., West Mifflin, and Peter J. Biagiarelli, 24, who listed his address as 206 W. Ninth Ave., Homestead, are also charged with Jailing Harris, who was found shot to death last Wednesday. His body wat found along the Monongahela River near the Homestead High Level Bridge. All three suspects have been charged with murder, armed robbery and conspiracy to commit an unlawful act. McClellan Winging McNamaraOn Fill (Continued from Pa jt ) and Navy failed. C o n g r en canceled the Navy version two years ago because of overweight and other problems. Seven Navy FlllBs had already been built. Two crashed, the other five are used by the Navy for tests. Air Force officers blame many of the problems with their version of the Fill to the attempt to build a common Navy Air F o r c plane. From an original planned buy of 2,411 Fills of all models, the schedule has been reduced to 554 through cancellation of the Navy model, cancellation by Britain of its order for 50 Fills and reduced orders by the Air Force because of problems and costs. Model Order Sliced Also, a McNamara plan to buy some 200 FlllB's, t strategic bomber version, was cut to 90 by his successor, Clark M. Clifford,' and then to the 77 already in production by Defense Secretary Melvin R. Laird last year. Laird said those 77 would be completed to salvage what we can of the work in process. Australia, which ordered 24 Fills, has refused to accept them until assured the planes are safe. The planes built for the Australians have been finished and ready for delivery for months; now there are reports Australia might want a later model Fill with improvements. If such a deal were appro v e d, the United States would fcave to pick up the cost of the 24 already built for Australia. An attempt to use the Fill in combat on bombing runs from Thailand over North Vietnam in 1968 was abortive. Three of the planes sent to Thailand crashed. Against this background, the McClellan subcommittee has heard additional evidence that the Defense Department under the Johnson administration sought to block attempts by the subcommittee staff and the General Accounting Office to get information about the program. Nixon Gfvnj fecit Only since the Nixon administration took office has the Information been freely forthcoming on request, McCleiian says. Investigators said that Paul C. Warnke, former Defense Department general counsel, personally intervened on oc- Vegas Fire Hits Stardust : LAS VEGAS (LTD - Fire accompanied by clouds of thick black smoke damaged ttiie crowded Stardust Hotel , yesterday, killing a fireman , and injuring 11 persons. ' The sprawling multimillion-. dollar hotel, which is built :; like the spokes of a wheel around the lobby-casino, was " filled to capacity when the blaze broke out in a utility ; .room behind the executive offices. ,f!; Hundreds of guests scur-f jied to safety.

At least 20 others were treated and released. The blaze was controlled in about an hour. Damage was expected to run into the thousands of dollars. casions to prevent Fill project officers from talking to the subcommittee staff. Other testimony damaging to the management of the Fill program under McNamara disclosed that aeronautical engineers of the National Aeronautics and Space Administra-tion (NASA) concluded by mid-1963, based on wind tunnel tests of an Fill scale model, that the plane needed major changes in its basic design. However, the Air Force and General Dynamics spurned the recommendations, a NASA engineer testified. McClellan concluded that the short dash range of the Fill and other defects might have been avoided if NASA's advice had been heeded. Testifying in behalf of General Dynamics, Sen. John G. Tower, R-Tex., reminded the subcommittee that despite the 15 Fills lost in crashes the plane has a better safety record than other fighter air craft developed since the Ko rean war. Folic Faulted He blamed the program's troubles on McNamara's concept of commonality rather than on the company. McClellan agreed that McNamara apparently handed General Dynamics a "mission impossible" from the start. McClellan, a key Member of the Senate Appropriations Committee, says bo has refrained from trying to block funds for the Fill since the 1963 hearings in order to give the Pentagon every opportunity to develop a good plane. He now predicts that following the subcommittee bearings Congress will "take the most economical way out." Little of the program remains, however, for Congress to cancel.
