Harold Wilton, In a speech to the Labor Party conference-By Alfred Friendly The Washington Post/Outlook LONDON-The British Prime minister's accolade came in the course.of a boast about recent British research and development. For once, what might be dismissed as politician's hyperbole may in fact be understatement. Carbon fibers do indeed look like the miracle material for the rest of this century. Their potential is clearly enormous tor a multitude of metal-working industries and can well find a place in thousands of metal, Television Review »y CYNTHIA LOWRY Television Rudlo Writer NEW YORK (AP) - "The Ghost ind Mrs. Muir" is' a new tenant en ABC's Thursday night schedule, inhabiting an early time spot suitable for a program that has great appeal for children. The success of any fantasy is pegged "en persuading the viewer to accept the premise--that Samafltha of "Bewitched" is a witch; or, in this case, that a 2d»Vyear-old ghost of a sea captain can materialize and disappear at will, cast spells and control the climate in and around a cottage rented by an attractive widow and her two children. The show, which moved from NBC this season, heaped coincidence on the usual serving of supernatural jokes Thursday night. There arrived upon the icene »'look-alike of the captain's shade, a bearded Irishman who flipped over Mrs; Muir and made her ghost furiously jealous. It was 30 minutes full of the captain's raging at his rival and inflicting various spells to get rid «f him, with cues for the audience from an extravagant laugh track. Pretty Hope Lange handles .herself in spirited style as the widow, and Edward Miilhare is properly lusty and tempestuous at the salty ghost. There are a couple ' of cute children, a starchy housekeeper and a nervous real estate man, but ed up without firing a shot, it seemed that things were going their way. The show is dominated by the wheel-chair-bound character that Raymond Burr has developed into a lovable curmudgeon. Don Mitchell provides a special dimension with his hard-nosed but warm portrayal of the detective's helper and substitute legs. Week in and week out the series maintains a high standard of scripts and acting. If all goes well, there may soon be a second series featuring a character developed by novelist Erie Stanley Gardner, whose Perry Mason was the basis for the nine-year series that made Burr a major television star. A two-hour movie, to serve as a pilot, is in the works for NBC with Doug Selby, a young district attorney, as the central character. they had little to do in the first members expressed support to- episode.

Hatfield of Oregon, and nine GOP House members signed the letter. Democratic signers included 15 senators and 38 House members. The signers said they believe an overwhelming majority of the American people want the war ended as soon as possible. "The voice of this majority must be heard if we are to accelerate the pace toward peace," they said. "One of the most important ways to give voice to this sentiment is to show through peaceful assembly and nonviolent action that a majority of Americans believe that the attainment of peace is our most immediate and important national goal." The letter added that all those who signed have been seeking "legislative vehicles which will reflect the urgent desire of our people to end the war in Vietnam.' Meanwhile, President Nixon's Republican supporters have turned to passive resistance in their effort to avert any major Senate uprising against the administration's Vietnam policy. Their latest tactic: When doves rally on the Senate floor stay away, and if you do talk, try to agree. Republicans did both Wednesday, a day Vietnam policy critics had planned to make a major stand against current U. S policy. The critics spoke out but with few on hand but their adherents, there was no challenge and therefore no real debate. Sens. Harold Hughes,' D-Iowa, and Thomas F.

Their use has been and will be limited principally by the cost of production. The recent explosion of interest about the material here was occasioned by a prediction of the British A t o m i c Energy Authority (BAEA) that "large tonnage quantities could be produced at about $12 per pound at some -unspecified -- date in the future. Tht Fibtr's Abilities The magic of carbon fiber is its ability to withstand great temperatures (vital for parts such as turbine blades movinf at the' incredible speeds callet for by modern industry), its great strength and its light weight. It is used, or to be used, almost entirely as a reinforcer of other substances: Metal, glass, ceramics. It can be to them as steel rods are to reinforced concrete. "Carbon fibers can be dispersed in various matrices to yield materials four times as strong as steel with a quarter the weight," the British Atomjc Energy Authority reported recently. An article in the British magazine Science Journal from which much of the following information is drawn, declares that carbon fiber "can be made stronger and stiffer than any other synthetic material of the same weight except for single crystal "whiskers" which can be produced only on a microscopic scale of size." But carbon fibers are now being made in strands 1000 feet long. The material is jet black, silky and finer than a human hair. It is their length and strength, not the substance itself, that is new. Thomas A. Edison used Cuba Appeals To U.N. After News Office Closed by U.S. By ROBERT H. ESTABROOK The Washington Post UNITED NATIONS, N.Y. United Nations legal officials were studying an appeal from the Cuban news agency Prensa Latina Thursday in the wake of a retaliatory United States move to restrict its activities.' On Oct. l.the State Department disclosed that the Treasury Department had revoked the license of Prensa Latina for coverage of the U.S. from its headquarters at the U.N. and had blocked its office bank account. This followed the Cuban expulsion of the Associated Press resident correspondent from Havana on Sept. 8 and the padlocking of the United Press International and AP offices on Sept. 17. The United Nations gets into the picture because since 1962 Prensa Latina has been using its office at the U.N. as a base for U.S. coverage by its two accredited correspondents--Francisco Portela, and American citizen, and Alfonso Villacorta, a permanent U.S. resident. Portela contended, that the freeze by the Treasury also rendered impossible Prensa Lantina's coverage of the U.N. as an international agency, since all funds were blocked. Accordingly he appealed to the U.N. Office of Public information, which referred the question to the legal division. In announcing the license cancelation, the State Department emphasized that if Prensa Latina would reapply for a license to use funds for coverage of the United Nations, the re- quest'would be promptly considered. The only other such license is held by Wolfgang Meyer ol the General News Agency of East' Germany, which the United States does not recognize. Portela contended that the situations of Presna Latina and of American news agencies in Cuba were unequal. Until Sept. 17 closure, he said, American agencies were permitted to operate freely in Cuba, whereas Prensa Latina had been subject to severe restrictions here. Although the ostensible reason for the Cuban ouster « AP correspondent Fenton Wheeler was governmental unhappiness with his dispatches, reportedly the Castro regime initiated the ·natter in an attempt to force eciprocity. Cuba has not re- ponded to longtime UPI re- uests for a visa for a new cor- espondent. Before 1962, according to 'ortela, Prensa Latina operated reely from a downtown New 'ork office. But when it was nable to get adequate pro- ection against interference by Cuban exiles, he said, it movec ,s base of operations to an of- ice in the United Nations press ection. Since that time, Portela con ended, the Treasury has lamped down severely on the amount of money available to he news service. Whereas i ormerly had 15 employes, hi aid, it now has only two. But Stanley Summerfield :hief counsel of the Treasury' foreign Assist Control Divi ion in Washington, disputec his figure. Treasury record how four persons working fo 'rensa Latina in the Unitec itates in addition to Portela am /illacorta, he said--one woman and three men, all either U.S jlizens or permanent residents Privately American official mphasize that the purpose o he U.S. crackdown is to per uade the Castro government to elax its restrictions on the free low of information. As soon as J.S. agencies are premitted ti perate in Cuba again, they mply, Prensa Latina's troubles vill diminish. GOP Chairman Endores Viet Moratorium, Defends Nixon By DON OBERDORFER The Washington Put WASHINGTON - Republican National Chairman Roger C. B. Morton, Thursday night endorsed the October 15 Vietnam moratorium as "great . . . good thing . . . part of our right lo assemble"' but defended President Nixon's statement that he would not be affected by "I'm for the moratorium," the Maryland congressman said lo loud applause during the traducing a resolution urging U.S. withdrawal from Vietnam if the Saigon government does not agree within 60 days to a series of reform moves--including acceptance of a new caretaker government. Hughes .said the Nixon pro gram now is at an impasse with the administration hardening its "already tough line on the war." All of this drew a statement of qualified praise from Senate GOP Leader Hugh" Scott, who had denounced a withdrawal bill sponsored by a Republican colleague as a "bugout." Unlike the earlier proposal of Sen. Charles E. Goodell of New York calling for a total U. S. pullout by Dec. 1, 1970, the Hughes resolution proposed no firm deadline, only "all responsible haste" and withdrawal il Saigon does not swiftly reform "This is the kind of constructive debate which I had hopec would emerge," Scott said of the Hughes speech. "My suggestion that we hold down our differences to the quiet and reasonable. consideration of alternatives has be'e'n respected."

"As long as we don'1 get into destroying other peo pie, this is 'a good thing, a rea expression.'! Morton said that "I know he (Nixon) is .concerned about it,' but declared that it would be difficult 'for the President to use the planned nationwide demon strations as a basis for malting Vietnam policy. What can he do? Given the responsibility, given the situa-, lion, given the criteria, given :he position we'ri GOP chairman. "I don't think (the moratorium) could do anything to.en- hance his dedication to getting out (of. Vietnam) I've listened to this as. much as probably any one individual in America, at Camp David, at the While House , (and) and this is a consuming proposition think he knows what the feeling of the people is and we want to get.out," Morton said. Morton said one benefit of the demonstrations might be the emergence across the politica spectrum approach toward withdrawing from Vietnam. Morton's endorsement of the Oct. 15 events was one of the strongest uttered by a. major Republican figure. In his Sept 26 press conference, Presiden Nixon said that while he ex pects demonstrations »nd other activity in opposition to the war "under no circumstances will I be affected whatever by it."

Vright-Pattern Air Base laboratories were experimenting 'ith it 10 years ago, but the esult was a thread that was hort and brittle. Five years go Union Carbide made a much superior product, but at :ie staggering cost of $1000 per wund. The big breakthrough--justi- ying Harold Wilson's bow to 3ritish research and development--began in 19G3 when three men at the Royal Aircraft Es- ablishment, trying to make 'whiskers" by'the carload, de- ided to begin with synthetic tcx- ile thread. What they did, in iversimplified terms, was to mm off the side branches of nitrogen and hydrogen in the molecules of organic polymer extile fibers, leaving only molecules of pure carbon lined up directionally along the length if the strand. By 1965, the British Atomic 3nergy Authority at Harwell which had extra capacity in it; iigh temperature furnaces usec o make carbon to moderate nuclear reactors, took over the manufacturing process in 1965, Firms Invited to Participate To obtain production at even n'gher volumes, three private British enterprises were invitee o participate: Rolls Royce, the jreat textile firm of Courtaulds md Morganite Research anc Jevelopment. They in turn shared their licenses and the British know-how with Ameri can partners, respectively Lockheed Aviation, Hercules Corp and the Whittaker Corporation of Los Angeles. Other American firms, work ing on their own in the field include Union Carbide, Amerl can Celanese, Monsanto Chem ical, Great Lakes Carbide an Hitscho. Rolls Royce is already test ing a carbon fiber composition in the fan rotar blades of th RB211 engines to be used in th Lockheed 1011. The basic carbon fiber raw materials produced here ar sheets containing hundreds thousands of carbon filaments with each filament, itself tiny consisting of a hundred or mor fibrils arranged like the ind vidual wires in a multi-cor metal cable. The fibrils them selves are made up of crysta latices of carbon atoms, un formly oriented along the axi of the thread. The sheets are imbedded in a matrix of resin, making a product that can be laminatei and then cut or molded to the shapes desired. Alternately, the filaments can be wound inti MOSCOW -- Agitators are missing from Soviet youth. CINDY'S Bar Lounge 501 Main Street Platteville, Colo.

When, as low, it costs something like 500 one pound of weight into deep space, the value of carbon materials in astronautics is ob- 'ious.
