They are the first foreign officers to be trained in the F4C.

D-M Graduates RAF Class Of F4C Phantom Jet Trainees By GIL MATTHEWS Citizen Staff Writer The first class of foreign offi- c£rs to receive training in the FM'C Phantom today was graduated by the Tactical Air Command's 4453rd Combat Crew Training Wing at Davis-Monthan AFB. iThe eight Royal Air'Force officers -- four pilots and four navigators -- will return to Great Britain to form the nucleus of ah F4M Phantom outfit there. ;Great Britain has ordered several of the F4M from the McDonnell Aircraft Co. -- and \Yill integrate the all-purpose fighter-bomber into its air force. '.The "M" model is nearly identical in appearance to the F4C. However, it has undergone several modifications, including installation of the more powerful Rolls-Royce jet engines. !F4C's are powered by General Electric J-79 engines. : In all, D-M will train 32 RAF officers in the Phantom by the end of this year. The group -including those officers graduated today --comprises 16 pilots afcd an equal number of navigators. Tone of the plots, Squadron Leader Derek Bryant, today described the Phantom as a "remarkable" aircraft. '"We've now got things that are faster, but nothing capable of such a wide number of roles," he said. tBryant formerly flew 'the RAF Lightning fighter. The Lightning is capable of flying in excess of 1,400 m.p,h., as is the Ijhantom. ^Comparing the two aircraft, Sryant said, "The overall capa- bjlity of the Phantom is remarkable. It's not specifically better in any one area (than the Lightning), but taking its overall ability, it's remarkable." ; Bryant said one of the biggest differences between the U.S. Air Force and RAF is the amount of "personal attention" given pilots by the latter. "You're turning them (pilots) out for actual war environment. We're a much smaller sir force . . .and can afford to give a person a little more personal attention." Of any differences between RAF and U.S. fighter pilots, Bryant said fighter pilots the world over are fundamentally the same. "It's an attitude I think. Prob- ably a fighter pilot has a natural degree of overconfidence. Therefore, he has to live up to his overconfidence. Otherwise he'll be dead." The RAF class which graduated today was assigned to the 4456th Squadron of the 4453rd. The wing also is 'training a group of Iranian officers in the F4C. Johnson Won't Enter Massachusetts Race BOSTON (UPI) -- President Johnson has decided not to enter the April 30 Massachusetts primary. If no stand-in is named today, the President will default the state's 72 convention delegates to his principal challe- n g e r , S e n . Eugene J. McCarthy, D-Minn. State Democratic Chairman Lester S. Hyman said today he was awaiting word from Washington as to who would be named as a stand-in candidate. There were three names being mentioned, and leading the list, according to authoritative Washington sources, was House Speaker John W. McCormack. Postmaster General Lawrence F. O'Brien, a Springfield, Mass., native and close friend of the President, was another likely choice as was state Senate President Maurice A. Donahue of Holyoke. The deadline for entering the primary was 5 p.m. today. In the absence of the President's name or a stand-in, McCarthy, who is running on a peace platform opposed to the Johnson administration's Viet nam policy, would win by default the support of the state's delegates lo the Democratic national convention, at least on the first ballot. Delegates are required by rule to vote on the first ballot Board OKs Fund Drives Asking Total Of $45,800 .' Three campaigns, aimed at raising a total of $45,800, have received approval from the Tucson Fund Raising Review Board. Organizations receiving approval were the Tucson Boys Chorus, the local chapter of the American Red Cross and the City of Hope. ; The American Red Cross is attempting to raise $20,800 this month as Tucson's share for Uie national "support our servicemen" fund program. ; The Boys Chorus will conduct a $15,000 campaign from March J5 through April 30 for the support of its work. ; A door-to-door campaign is to be held by the City of Hope on May 5 and May 12 to raise $10,- 000 for the support of its medical center program. Status Of Fund Drives Status of fund drives underway: Approved by the Tucson Fund Raising Review Board -- St. Mary's Hospital; assistance League of Tucson; Catalina Junior Woman's Club; National Recreation and Park Association; Planned Parenthood Center; Soroptimist Club of Tucson; Pascua Yaqui Association; Easter Seal Society; and Sunshine Kiwanis Cub.

A few days ago, Hyman declared that unless "I receive orders to the contrary, I will enter the name of President Johnson on the primary ballot." However it was learned Hyman received word from Washington Monday night not to enter the President. Massachusetts law permits a state political chairman to enter the name of anyone he considers a candiate for his party's presidential nomination. But Hyman was not acting independently. He vowed to stay by his telephone until Washington told him what to do. Meanwhile, McCarthy took the opportunity to issue a direct challenge to President Johnson to enter the primary. "I would welcome a decision to enter and the opportunity for direct debate," McCarthy said. "I can think of no more appropriate state in which to ask the voters whether they want to return to the principles and policies of John F. Kennedy," McCarthy said in a statement issued from his Washington office. Shot At Twice, Says Motorist A Tucson man told police he was shot at twice while driving on South 6th Avenue today. Authorities say they examined the auto of Thomas Charles Blankenship, 25, of 5851 S. 6th Ave., but could find no evidence the vehicle had been hit by a bullet. Blankenship said he was near his residence shortly after midnight when a white and blue station wagon with one occupant passed his car. He said the auto moved slowly after passing him and he overtook the wagon. He said the driver of the station wagon then fired two shots at his car. Blankenship could give police no cident. reason for the in- Hospital Study Given Steinle Firm The County Board of Supervisors yesterday authorized Chairman Thomas Jay to sign a $16,000 contract with a New York firm for an in-depth study of the County Hospital. John G. Steinle Associates of Garden City. N.Y., is the contractor. Steinle is a Tucson resident. The action confirmed a report by the Tucson Daily Citizen last week that Steinle would get the job although another consultant bid lower by $300. Harold M. Siegel Associates, a loc.al firm, has indicated it may challenge the supervisors' action in court. Jay said Steinle was selected because it was felt that firm could "do the best job for the county." Steinle also is expected to get a contract for an overall study of Tucson hospital facilities and future health care needs here. In brief, the Steinle contract with Pima County will determine the future of the County Hospital in relation to other area hospitals. Matt Ad Suit Hits Gulf American MIAMI, Fla. (AP) -- A suit seeking to prohibit the Gulf American Corp. from advertising through the mails has been filed in U.S. District Court in Miami. The action was filed yesterday on behalf of a Rhode Island man who charged he had not received title to two parcels of land bought nine years ago from the large land sales firm. The complainant, Robert Barrows of Pawtucket, said in the suit that he paid $2,280 for the lots in Gulf American's Cape Coral subdivision near Ft. Mvers. Barrows also alleged the firm failed to develop the property as promised. (Gulf American has pending with the State of Arizona a request to hegin land sales in a planned community north of Nogales.) $2,700 Fire Loss Damages were estimated at $2,700 today after fire damaged a one-story brick home at 8227 E. Cooper Place, owned by Robert J. Conroy. Firemen said the blaze was discovered at 3:30 p.m. Monday by Conroy's 15- year-old son, Michael. The fire started in a bedroom, apparently caused by a cigarette.

HARVILL UNDECIDED UA Faculty Group For Voluntary ROTC Student recommendations for a voluntary ROTC program at the University of Arizona has won the support of the Faculty Senate Committee. The recommendations, which also suggest that a voluntary Navy ROTC program be instituted at the university, will go to the Board of Regents next month for consideration. If approved by the board, the voluntary program is expected to go into effect at the start of the 1969-70 school year. University President Richard A. Harvill said this morning that he still does not know whether he will come out in favor of the proposals. The president said he will make up his mind after studying a "tremendous amount" of background material he has on hand. Harvill, however, commended the Faculty Senate Committee for its work saying: "The committee went about this in a very thorough going way." Faculty Senate Committee members went into a study of the proposals following recommendations by student groups. The proposed voluntary ROTC program also has received approval from the Arizona State University students and the Faculty Senate there. The proposals, in the event the voluntary program is adopted, call for one of three options should a student not choose to enroll. These are: the student must complete four units of regularly scheduled laboratory science or mathematics; the student must complete four units of a foreign language (beyond the required 16-unit level); or the student must complete a sequence of two regularly scheduled two- unit courses.

Rillito. This will be part of an expansion resulting from company acquisition of 80 per cent of the voting stock of Anderson Electronics of Hollidaysbsurg, Pa,, according to Thermo-Kinetic's president, Robert D. Gibson. Gibson said the acquisition will mean moving about 70 men, and their payroll of about $250,000, from the Anderson Electronics operation to Tucson. He estimated 50 new employ- es hired locally would be paid a total of about $150,000 annually. This would bring the expansion to about $400,000 in payroll initially, he noted. Acquisition of other companies also is planned by Thermo-Kinetic, the president said. Purchase of the Pennsylvania company is a "vertical integration" move -- the kind where "you build a component that goes into another and that goes into another" -- Gibson said. He declared other acquisitions his firm is contemplating would be on "horizontal integration" lines. This idea is to move into "non-allied" fields that might not be electronic, so Thermo-Kinetic could "broaden our base in other fields," Gibson said.

"We're planning to expand our facility in various quartz crystal devices," Gibson said, "and we plan to gel into crystal filters and oscillators, and this is going to mean expansion." His electronics firm "will build larger quarters somewhere in Tucson. We don't have any land selected yet." Sales of Thermo-Kinetic last year totaled abut $300,000, Gibson said. He estimated acquisition of Anderson Electronics will send the Tucson company's sales past the million-dollar mark this year. "It's a real asset to our company to get this company," he asserted. The acquisition is a two-step operation, Gibson said. The first move, purchase of 80 per cent of the stock, is subject to approval nf Thermo-Kinetic's 1,200 stockholders in 30 states and "I'm sure they will approve." Gibson said the second step will consist of tenders to purchase the remaining outstanding stock. WHIM ttH UH it tmtllit MtK, tmws,ITJU-BC tmuiMsj ui · ··Ju.-rphjgirin NO WORE TYPING OR .
