PAGE FOURTEEN THE PHAROS-TRIBUNE and LOGANSPORT PRESS, LOGANSP6RT, INDIANA SUNDAY, DECEMBER 17,19» Stewardesses Ask Strict Requirements WASHNGTON (UPI) - Air-: line stewardesses have asked -the government to .impose stricter safety requirements for cabin-attendants, it was learned Saturday. The request came from the steward and stewardess division of the Air Line Pilots Association and wa? handed to the Civil Aeronautics Board (CAB) recently by the group's safety chairman. Iris Peterson. The stewardesses urged: —A minimum _age of-21 for any cabin attendant-applicant (some airlines now hire girls as young as 18). •- ' —Establishment -of minimum physical standards -which now vary from -airline to airline. —Stiffer training, including re- fresKer Courses and a ."closed book" qui^ on- emergency equip- ment .and .evacuation procedures for a specific aircraft every six months. —All -applicants must be able to read, write, 'speak and understand the English language. —A requirement lhat there be a minimum number of-flight attendants assigned on the basis ol total''seats. —Improved location of cabin at- tendant'seats to assure a full view of the cabin a'nd also the outside of the plane, ' - A CAB spokesman said the recommendations will be studied thoroughly,.' Those' accepted wil be turned over to the Federal Aviation Agency (FAA) for possible inclusion- in the civil, air regulations.

The most controversial (and potentially expensive)- proposal would be the minimum complement requirement. The stewardesses demanded that on piston planes there be at least one flight attendant per 44 seats, one additional attendant for each addition- al'40 seats, and no less than .two attendants in- any cabin section (first class and-or coach) seating 45 or more passengers. The complement for jets would be-even higher: one attendant for every 30 seats, one additional attendant for each additional. 30 seats and no less than two attendants for any cabin area seat- ing.31 or more passengers. Miss Peterson, a United Air Lines stewardess, told UPI _ the recomendation was made "because no flight attendant in an emergency can adequately handle more than 30 or 40 passengers in a short period—not when she also may have such problem passengers as children, cripples or elderly persons." Grams Make Irregular Run CHICAGO (AP)-The grain futures market was driven into an irregular course by indecisive trading last week fcul finished mostly lower. Both gains arid losses were small as trade volume hit what brokers described as a holiday lull. Many times activity virtually ceased in all except the corn pit, where government selling of surplus stocks had a continued influence. Commercial factors were scarce or of little force generally. Commercial business never showed any sign of urgency, although jrocessors were fairly consistent Buyers in small amounts. Export business was expected to remain at a low level until after the first of the year. Near the end of the week, rye jaders saw the makings of a bull market for a while but the report on which they obtained their view urned out to Be erroneous. When word circulated through the exchange that Poland would be -a leavy buyer of the grain on a J.S. credit grant, speculators lost no time in covering short positions and acquiring long ones. But be- ore they became comfortably settled it was disclosed that the grant included no authority for purchases of rye. Otherwise transactions were confined largely to evening up positions in the December contact, on which trading ends next fuesday. The guiding influence in soybeans stemmed primarily from he markets for soybean oil and soybean meal. However, there was .no prolonged trend anywhere. A midweek rumor that the government may shut off or at least curtail its sales of surplus corn mparted a steadying influence in the market," but traders were in doubt about when or for how long :he action would be effective. Wheat dosed the week 1% cents a bushel lower to Vs higher than a week ago, December $2.04%-%; corn Ws higher to 1% lower, December $1.07%-%; oats Vt highej to % lower, December 70-69%; Rye % higher to % lower, December $1.42%; soybeans % lower to % higher, January $2.43%-%. GOLF WIDOW DIES CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP)-Mrs. Mary Allen .Heafner, 42,widow of professional golfer Clayton Heafner, died in a Charlotte hos pital Saturday of a heart attack By LEWIS GULICK WASHINGTON (-AP)-The United. States announced Saturday it will go ahead with its proposed $133 million in loans to help build the Volta Dam and aluminum smelter project in Ghana. The State Department said President Kennedy's decision was being conveyed' by his fact-finder on the project, former steel executive Clarence B. Randall, to left- leaning President Kwame Nkrumah-in Accra.

Newly'. developing countries saw the Volta project as a test case of whether the United States would give aid to a nation which did not march in step with Washington foreign policy. The Kennedy administration's avowed policy is to aid countries for their independence and economic advance, even if they do not always agree on international matters. 4. If the United States pulled out of the Volta project, the Soviets might move in, as they did with the Aswan Dam undertaking in 1956. 5.
