REPUBLIC Y1Y»] The Arizona Republic CITY ** if MAIL saaday, Sept. 22,1968 J££ Mexico takes tough stand Sonic booms test landmarks Republic Photo by Thttma H«afwolo Capt. Leo Dusard III And FIDOs Go Together tine mail to a plane :That?s the best flying there is' By THELMA HEATWOLE LUKE AFB - Capt. Leo Dusard III, 25, who could scarcely wait to make a career out of the Air Force, has made the most of it since he got there. Dusard flew 461 missions during his 18-month tour in Vietnam. When he left there, he reportedly held the record for number of missions in the FIDO Supersabre in the Vietnam war. Dusard said he had numerous close calls but the standout came when his F100 caught fire and he bailed out into the South China Sea. "I was glad I landed in the water," said Dusard, now an FIDO Instructor with the 4517th Combat Training Squadron here, "There are not as many Vietcong in the water as on land." • DUSARD'S wingman orbited over the downed pilot until a rescue "chopper" picked him up from his life raft. "Actually, my concern was over," Dusard said, "when my parachute opened. If any sampans had come toward me in the raft, my wing man would have taken care of the situation." Dusard, unscathed, was back in service when he picked up a new helmet and parachute. In a like - father - like - son story, Dusard comes by his love for flying naturally. His father, Maj. Gen. Leo Dusard Jr., vice commander of air training command at Randolph AFB, San Antonio, was a pilot during World War II in the South Pacific. "I always wanted to go into the Air Force," the younger Dusard said. "In my opinion flying fighters, single seat, one guy in the plane, is about the best kind of flying there is." Dusard has logged 1,100 flying hours, 815 of them in the FIDO. In Vietnam, he was based at Tuy Hea and fie wall his missions over the south. "OUR PRIMARY mission was to provide close air support for the Army," he said. Intervention di;ms hopes COLOMBO, Ceylon (AP) The Soviet intervention in Czechoslovakia has dampened Mrs. Siriraavo Bandaran- aike's hopes of returning to power as prime minister of this island nation. Mrs. Bandaranaike condemned the intervention, but Ceylon's Communist Party, with which she has been allied, was silent. Her political enemies, led by the current prime minister, Dudley Sena- nayake, charged that any Bandaranaike government might "invite" the Russians into Ceylon if she came back to power in company with her Communist friends. She became prime minister in 1960 but lost the job in 1965 on a vote to nationalize the press. Elections have been expected in March 1970, but Senana- yake, profiting from attacks on Mrs. Bandaranaike arid a reviving economy, may cajl for polling as early as new April. This is his prerogative under Ceylon's system. "Sometimes we dropped weapons within 29 meters of friendly Army units. We had to be accurate in dropping the ordnance." Dusard said that during big engagements, the FlOOs flew round - the - clock in air support. "We got a lot of satisfaction in helping our men on the ground," he said. Dusard's flying missions usually lasted IVz hours, depending on the target area, which varied from 3 to 250 miles from the base. He re- c e i v e d the Distinguished Flying Cross and 23 Air Medals. Dusard, a graduate of Texas A&M, where he majored in civil engineering, plans to make a career of the military. His career plans were almost cut short. He is 6 feet 4, the maximum height for an Air Force pilot. APARTMENT INVESTING SEMINAR Attend our 3 night apartment seminar/ at 7:30 P.m. Sept. 24, 25, 26.

The government denied there was a single death. THE CONSENSUS in Mexico City was that, with the use of troops, the government could quell any mass demonstrations during" the Olympics but that student and other opposition groups would take advantage of the presence of hundreds of foreign newsmen and TV crews to demonstrate whenever an opportunity appeared. Few Mexicans now recall just what started this summer's series of student demonstrations. They began over demands for better educational facilities, expecially in the National Polytechnical Institute. As the disorder! expanded, so did the student demands. They called for the firing of Mexico City's pollci ehiftf, disbanding of the very effective brigade of riot police, the release of police prisoners and revocation of laws against political subversion. PRESIDENT DIAZ Ordaz rejected these demands but did make a soft try, permitting the students to stage several anti-government parades without interference by police. But when threats to use more demonstrations to create trouble for the Olympics continued, he moved in the army. And its probable these troops — and as many more as are necessary to maintain order during the games — will remain until all the Olympic participants and spectators have gone home. LONDON (AP)-Westminster Abby and other cathedrals will figure in a technology ministry study of possible effects on centuries-old buildings from sonic booms to come with the dawning of the supersonic jet transport era in the 1970s. The ministry has delegated the job to the Southhamptofl University Institute of Sound and Vibration Research, which plans small, unshattering «- plosions outside the walla to simulate blasts from the blue.
