By Wire Services Is supersonic travel dead .before it begins? * The builders of the Concorde Tairliner don't .think so. They Isaid today they will go ahead ^vlth the program -- despite "critical refusals by Pan American World Airways and Trans ·World Airlines to buy it. " Henri Ziegler, director of Ithe French firm building the ·?60 million airliner, said su- ;personic transportation is inheritable. · Pan Am and TWA . announced yesterday they would foot exercise their options to ·buy the Concorde, a 1,400- m.p.h. passenger plane under construction in a joint Aiiglo- faench project. . - Pan American said studies "showed the .aircraft "has sig- 'nificantly less range, less pay;load and higher operating 'costs" than present wide-bod- Sed jets.

The arsenal included nine machine guns, seven submachine guns, two pistols and ammunition. :: Cuba has refused to extra- tlite the nine guerrillas involved in the Nov. 8 hijacking. quire "substantially higher fares." Other critics say speed is the plane's only advantage, ·and that it raises environmental questions. For these economic and political reasons, · the United States dropped its plans to build a supersonic airliner. But British spokesmen said today, "The Concorde offers not merely a step, but a leap ahead in shrinking' world travel . . . It is a vehicle no major airline can afford to be without in the second half of this century." . ; Anthony -Wedgwood Benn, the former British minister of aviation who was chiefly -responsible for the start of the Concorde project, said it was important that the builders "not panic" as a result of the Pan Am and TWA decisions. The cancellations mean a potential loss of $780 million to Concorde builders. Pan Am and TWA are regarded as industry leaders, particularly in overseas routes where the Concorde might be useful, and their decision is expected to affect the thinking, of other airlines. Four other U.S. carriers hold options on the plane. American and Eastern have ^options to buy six planes each; Braniff and Continental 'have options on three planes each. Braniff is the only one of the four that has displayed much enthusiasm for the Concorde. It says the plane would be ideal for its Latin American flights, but Braniff doesn't want to be the first carrier to try out the new aircraft. Japan Airline (JAL) indicated today it may follow suit and drop its options on purchasing three of the planes. Injunction sought against city paving ; An East Side apartment .owner has sued the City of Tucson for not holding a public hearing before authorizing a paving project on two streets bordering the apartment property. '" Regency Square East Associates, 666G E. Golf Links Road, filed the suit in Pima County Superior Court yesterday, alleging the paving project for Mann Avenue and Stella Road would! mean an assessment on property owners. The suit says the owners announced their plans to file a written protest of the project, but were told by a city em- ploye that a written complaint was not necessary because a public hearing would be held and property owners could voice complaints then. Regency representatives contend the city has plans to open bids Monday and never has held a public hearing on the project. They seek a court injunction on the project until a public hearing is held. 'Peril of peace Nixon warns nation not to turn inward WASHINGTON (UPI) President Nixon said today peace in Vietnam would bring a danger that the nation might turn inward and withdraw from the world. Speaking at the 21st National Prayer Breakfast, sponsored by House and Senate groups, the President said "the record is not loo encouraging" when the United States has achieved peace in the past. "The conflict we were engaged in tends to turn itself inward," he said, adding that this could lead to a negative peace and withdrawal from world affairs. "We must recognize that peace is not just the absence of war," he said. "It's the opportunity to do great things both at home and abroad." Nixon sought, in his words, to "put the peace in perspective" for 3,000 persons, including members of his Cabinet, the Supreme Court, Congress and the diplomatic corps, at the breakfast in the "Washington Hilton Hotel. prevent regret and misunderstanding..« Families faced with a loss are not able to give proper consideration to funeral arrangements.

With the temperature near zero, Tom Merrill, 8, and his sister, Stephanie, 10, get-their heads together for a heated conversation about the weather at South Portland, Maine. Demo club votes . ." .. - · · opposition Members of the District 11 Democratic Club last night voted unanimously against most of the $54 million bond issue coming before Tucson voters next Tuesday, but will not oppose the proposal for fire department improvements. Anna Brown, chairwoman of the meeting, said about 40 members voted to support the equal rights amendment to the Constitution and to oppose the bond issue. · The Rev. Richard Cantrell of United Citizens for Responsible Bonds spoke against the bond issue, Mrs. Brown said, but the city declined to send a spokesman for the bonds. The club excepted the fire department proposal from their opposition, saying the proposal was excellent and "could even be expanded," she said. In opposing the issue, the Democrats criticized the street-paving proposal as "en- couraging urban sprawl," the parks expansion for ignoring neglected areas in favor of stii-undeveloped ones, the storm drain system, which they said is incomplete, and the library proposal for transforming the main library into an information center angled toward business rather than public needs. Ban put on gas as torch fuel ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) -- Residents of New York State no longer can light decorative torches with natural gas, the Public Service Commission has ruled. The commission, in issuing its decision, noted that some commercial establishments or civic organizations have used such torches as advertising devices or, in some cases, as "eternal flames" to commemorate veterans. Airman Apprentice Donald E. Ricks, 20, Roxbury, Mass., was the first of the five sailors convicted so far by a Navy court-martial to be. sentenced to additional'confinement.
