But it is hard to kill familiar names. Businessmen along the old route and public officials rebelled at the route change but the Indiana State Highway Commission and its counterpart in Michigan held firm. They would not designate the old route as Business U S SI But U.S. 31 is very much alive inside South Bend as Business 31. nd in Clay Twp many businesses retain the U.S. 31 in their names. V Motorists passing north or south through South Bend still have the U S. 31 signs to follow. The signs never were removed by the state. U.S. 31 is a federal route, well known as Dixie Highway, that runs from here to'Dixie m the South. Meanwhile, the segment of highway that links South Bend and Niles has another designation, U.S. 33. It is another federal highway that starts in Coloma in Michigan and runs through Mishawaka, Goshen and Fort Wayne and ends m Pomeroy, Ohio, near Parkersburg, W. Va. Federal highway routes that run north and south have odd numbers and those that run east and west have even numbers. Air system called safe Continued from Page one said Lewis, Helms, PATCO President Robert E. Poll and a spokesman for the Air Line Pilots Association have been invited to testify. The National Transportation Safety Board, an independent agency that investigates air crashes, decided unammously Tuesday to investigate the air traffic control system with a fact-finding report to be completed within eight weeks Board member Patricia Goldman said the move was in response to a public concern about air safety after two-thirds of the normal air traffic controller corps was fired for engaging in the illegal strike that began Aug. 3. There is no question that the public is nervous and frightened because of the reports about recent air incidents, Mrs. Goldman said in an interview Tuesday. Lewis also announced formation of a three-man task force to examine long range management-labor problems within the FAA's controller operations. In other developments Tuesday : Controller jobs sought by 24 in South Bend Twenty-four people have applied so far to test in South Bend for air traffic controller jobs, according to a count by the federal government's Indianapolis Office of Personnel and Management. Figures released Tuesday afternoon by Marlm Tammen, area manager for that office, indicated that those people may also be interested in assuming the jobs of the 29 controllers who struck Michiana Regional Airport on Aug. 3. Although many controllers, statewide, have yet to be officially fired following President Reagans edict, people are lining up for those jobs. Telephone operators at the federal job information center in Indianapolis have been very busy answering questions about how and where to test for air controller training, Tammen said. The 24 scheduling cards" were among 600 the office has received so far. Once all the cards are received, a test will be scheduled for the South Bend area, Tammen said. More names will likely come in with approach of an Aug. 28 (postmark) deadline set by the office, Tammen said. The wntten test is designed to weed out those who are qualified for actual air traffic controller schooling.

APC favors zoning change for mall addition A proposed addition to North Village Mall is closer to reality today as the Area Plan Commission Tuesday night favorably recommended zoning changes for the land. The rezomng changes the site to commercial zoning to allow its use as a shopping mall. The addition will extend the mall building south by 156 feet, adding 19,500 square feet of retail space. Architect Thorqas Panzica said the number of newstores has not been determined yet. However, construction is tentatively scheduled to start m late fall. The commission favorably recommended rezomng of property at 113 E. Chestnut, New Carlisle, from multi-family to general buisness, to allow its use as a parking lot. The lot is expected to provide 33 additional parking spaces for the petitioner, National Bank and Trust Co. The commission approved preliminary plat for Walters County Estates, a proposed subdivision at the southeast corner of Harrison and Basswood. The 6.5-acre plat, currently used for a retention basin, w ill contain seven lots. The commission gave an unfavorable recommendation to the proposed vacation of an east-west alley south of Fairview between Apple and Beech.

Hamilton said he had no other details. The F-14 is the most advanced U.S. camer-based fighter and uses the sophisticated Phoenix missile m its primary mission of defending the fleet from air attack. Its fire-control system permits it to shoot at a number of attacking planes simultaneously. The Nimitz is a nuclear-powered aircraft carrier, the biggest afloat, displacing over 90,000 tons and normally carrying about 100 aircraft of various types. Soviet bloc urges neutron weapon ban GENEVA, Switzerland (AP) The Soviet Union and its Warsaw Pact allies are urging the 40-nation Geneva disarmament conference to draft an international treaty banning production, stockpiling, deployment and use of nuclear neutron weapons. Chief Soviet delegate Victor Iss-raelyan charged Tuesday that President Reagans decision to go ahead with production of neutron warheads has brought nuclear war closer to us. The United States and Canada accused the Soviet Umon of hypo-critcally ignoring its own vast nuclear potential. 18-19. elsewhere and has one ol the most Since then, officials said, the U& modem and powerful, stockpiles of Foreign Broadcast Intercept Ser- arms among Arab countries. vice, which monitors radio news and aiiUimitnaiiiniilfnesniiilSCdQltRinhim other broadcasts, recorded Libyan 10:15 A.M. 1 statements protesting the U.S. exer- i NEED?
