Preliminary evidence, accord- Ing to air officers, indicates the Russians may have developed an aerosol type radar "chaff"--as sprayed' from the airplane, opposed to the solid substances used by other countries including the United States. An aerosol chaff that would stay in place a long time, forming an aerial curtain to hide attacking planes or missiles, would have vast military significance; Solid chaff such as used by American planes falls to the ground too soon. "Chaff" is the term for material which, spread in the air, provides an electronic return to ground or airborne radar. It provides a cloud of material in the sky briefly to mask the presence of aircraft. Early in World War II, after development of radar, allied bombers spread clouds of tinfoil to confuse German radar and make penetration to targets easier. .U.S. planes use two types today. Tinfoil is still a standby. But American planes also drop "dipoled" chaff--small strops of copper wire in varying lengths --each length tailored to a particular radar frequency which might be beamed at the craft. But the solid chaff has the major disadvantage of falling to the ground relatively quick. That's what made the Russian Baltic flight intriguing. Allied radar picked up the Soviet plane and operators noted it had released a cloud of chaff in an apparent test. What happened next touched off the alarm. The plane flew away. But the chaff remained, floating gently like a cloud, acting just as if it were a drifting cloud and still providing a solid radar return that could mask relative few planes could pre- movements behind it.

Also, aircraft could carry chaff on its radar, there was nothing to be seen visually--no tinfoil; no copper wires-just the ]ess weigM disadvanta g e than sky. Experts theorized that the only material which could act that way would be an aerosol much as a housewife sprays an aerosol bug killer. Certain metallic-based compounds suspended in liquid might cause a radar echo. But what compound would do that and in what concentrations baffled the experts. Military advantages were obvious. An aerosol chaff cloud would stay in place longer.

One clue In (he high-level character of these movements has been seen in the prolonged presence in Peking of Hoang Van Hoan, member of the North Vietnamese Politburo and one of Hanoi's top specialists in relations with other communists Meanwhile, a variety of other signs from China lately have been interpreted by analysis here as an indication that Premier Chou En-Lai and his pragmatic faction may be exploring the possibility of resuming contacts with the Nixon administration. American and Chinese representatives scheduled tc meet in Warsaw last February, But Peking postponed the meeting at the last minute presumably as a result of pressures exerted by hard-line elements within the Chinese leadership group. 19G9 GREELEY TRIBUNE Page 5 WASHINGTON (AP) - The benefits Thursday--an increase "'resident Nixon has called excessive" and "inflationary."

The Air Force immediately ordered a research program to determine what materials might be used in an aerosol chaff and what kind of dispensers could be built that would work in U.S. planes. So far, there have been no breakthroughs. The experts aren't sure ' it's possible. But they can't explain the Russian flight any way. Creative Mood Calls for Protection QUINCY, Mass: (AP) When artist Edward Monti is in the creative mood, you find him in a face mask, ear muffs and asbestos suit. He produces sculptures out of stone with a welding torch. As far as he knows, his technique is unique. Monti, 42, manages his family's stone cutting company. "I got tired of shaping the gravestones. I wanted to do something different," he said. Using blowtorches which reach 3,800 degrees to cut granite blocks, he said he found that "with the right piece of stone, I can make anything." A heavy shatterproof screen saves him from getting sprayed with granite chips as he works. Heavy protective cups cover his ears. He began when asked to cut some animal troughs and graduated to duplicating ancient stone Japanese lanterns. When he found he could duplicate a sculptor's chisel with his torch, he was on his way. First slep is picking the right piece of stone. "Then you shape your statue with your torch," Monti said. After that, you smooth the stone, and finish off the product by hand." A profitable sidelight has been his- artwork on stones too big to be moved from cuslomers r lawns.
