Soviet Gets Sta By VERN HAUGLAND AP Aviation Writer WASHINGTON IAD - A sleek Soviet jet liner has star billing at Dulles International Airport as it undergoes a series of tests aimed at clearing the way ..for nonstop Moscow to New Yorkrair service. The Aeroflol 1LD2 touched down" at Dulles Monday night and in the floodlit, televised confusion', four newsmen got a sneak preview of the inside of (he craft from six pretty Soviet stewardesses. They said they found the air stale— apparently due to a non- operating ventilating system — but otherwise the interior of the plane^appeared to measure up to standards of most American passenger jets. InT-'the terminal, Dimitry I. Petroy, inspector general of Soviet.' civil aviation, described the visit as "the first step for the beginning of direct communication' between Moscow and New York." The flight, Petrov said, brings the -Soviet and American capitals: to within 11 hours of each nth*.; Aerpflot and Pan American Airways have applied to the two governments for clearance to begin -the direct air service.

Brierly started a feature, "Streets of New York," in 1939 for the defunct New York World-Telegram. COLLEGE PARK, Md. (AP) —Dr. Paul G.

While at Duke he was chief psychologist for the Veterans Administration Hospital in Durham, N.C. POUND (Continued from Psge One) easy in theory, but with large foreign aid commitments and a lar flow persists. At home, inflation also persists in the absence of taxes and less government spending. If the world loses confidence in the dollar, as well as in the pound, then the entire value relationship of currencies would be disputed. Confidence would evaporate. Chaos would reign. Trade would slow depressingly. In the meantime, some ominous effects already are appearing in the U.S. economy. As a result of an imperfect fiscal policy and because of Britain's problems, America's interest rates are soaring to century- high levels. High rates in the United Slates migSit entice investments to remain in this country; but high rates, maintained for a long period of time, can slow business expansion also. This is a serious dilemma, because parts of the American economy, such as housing, are just now recovering from a severe shortage of investment funds. Last year housing had its own private depression. High returns also might draw money from the stock market. Instead of being invested in shares of industry, this money would be lent at perhaps a greater return than stocks could offer. D. 0. Wiley Sr. D. 0.

Dense smoke hung over the area and debris covered the ground at the scene of the crash. Light snow fell sporadically as ambulances hauled bodies away from the orchard. Floodlights illuminated the area. Arhong the first at the scene was Capt. Paul Dickmann, commander of the Hebron, Ky. life squad. "We were running across the field past a man and when we went on, there was a man carrying a child from the burning wreckage of the plane," Dickmann said. He said they were both badly hurt but, told him to go on and help the others. Dickermann said the man then collapsed in his arms. Dickmann said a man told him he thought it was just a hard landing at first. But he then said "The ceiling collapsed on my wife and then the plane burst into flames." McKay said the plane was making a routine instrument approach. An airport spokesman said there had been no indic- tion from the pilot of any trouble. The cause of the crash was not determined. A part of the tail of the plane was about all that remained of the jet. The plane's pilot, Capt. Charles L. Cochran, 45, was listed as a resident of Spring Hill, Kan. and a veteran Marine Corps pilot. He had been flying commercial lines since 1952. The first officer was listed as Robert Moyers, 33, of Overland Park, Kan. The accident came just two weeks after another TWA plane crashed at the airport when it failed to make its takeoff. One woman died afterward but her death was not connected directly with the plane crash. . The airliner that crashed here two years ago was an American Airlines Boeing 707.

The key strike in Monday's raids over the North was on the Due Noi railroad yard and petroleum products storage area six miles north-northeast of Hanoi. A U.S. spokesman said the yard, hit for the first time in three months, was jammed with 118 railroad cars and three locomotives. U.S. Air Force F105 Thunder- chief pilots, who flew through heavy antiaircraft fire to hammer the yard, reported destroying 40 to 50 railroad cars. A second flight of pilots said the area was engulfed with smoke and dust, preventing further damage assessment. Hanoi claimed 11 American planes were shot down Monday. The two announced by the U.S. Command were an Air Force RF4 Phantom reconnaissance plane whose two crewmen were rescued and an Air Force F105 Tunderchief shot down by a M1G21 northwest of Hanoi. The pilot of the Thunderchief was missing. It was the 29th U.S plane downed by a MIG. American fliers claim 98 MIGs shot down.

Lupe of Circuit Court issued a , temporary restraining order Monday against the Korean Karate Institute. The order banned the institute's instructors and patrons from jumping, marching, pounding, stomping or kicking if such acts disturb persons below its secondl floor quarter. Operators of the Sayat Nova Restaurant and the 49th Ward Democratic Organization had complained that the karate tactics caused plaster to fall and chandeliers to shake. The judge suggested that floor mats might reduce sounds. HIGH-TOPPED "Miss World 1967," Rcita Faria of India, is a world traveler as well as a world beauty.
