The move reflects efforts to curb U.S. aircraft losses In the war, now totaling 758 over North Vietnam in _less than three years of operation. The'chaff, made up of thread- I sized strips of aluminum-coated ' fiberglass, is fired in puffs by American pilots approaching bombing target areas. The puffs reflect enemy radar signals and create blips on radar screens just like planes, confusing anti-aircraft crews. "It's like someone r.olling a bunch of coconuts down a hill toward you with a hand grenade somewhere among them," a Navy officer explained. In the past few days the Navy has ordered more than $1 million in chaff canisters, equaling Us total purchases for the fiscal year ending last June 30. The Pentagon said the Navy will order an additional 3 million more by next summer. The Air Force is more than Quadrupling its use of chaff. Officials said they expect to buy cal 1967's 1.4 million. Both services will get fresh supplies of chaff over the next few months as the United States prepares for intensified bomb- Ing during the good weather months beginning in North Vietnam about March. The use of chaff to foil enemy detection gear goes back to World War II. The tactic has assumed increased importance as the Pentagon seeks to counter North Vietnam's unprecedented air defenses. Blue and silver in color, the chaff now in use resembles the shiny icicles used to decorate some Christmas trees. The aluminum coating is less than 1-l.OOOth of an inch thick, giving the chaff an almost weightless quality which allows it to drift for minutes, prolonging the period of camouflage for U.S. planes. Chaff is produced by running fiberglass threads through melted aluminum. During World War II the strips were solid aluminum which meant they were not only heavier, and therefore less effective but also more costly. "The British like silver for theirs, which is really expensive," one military man said. "In fact we regard it as silly.

"A big sheet of flame hit the cable car." said Jim Kosek, 22, of Clarendon Hills, 111. Kosek, just returned from serving in Vietnam, said the cable car seemed to have "lost its brakes." Several persons were injured in the autos that were hit after the initial impact. Another cable car passenger, Lorena Matson, 29, of San Francisco, said: "As the cable car started down the steep hill toward Bay Street, the driver said, 'oh, oh, it looks like we're gonna lose our cable.' "We thought he was just kidding the tourists and we laughed. Then we just kept going. Some people jumped off, screaming. There was a white car at Bay Street. Then things were falling. There was fire." The cable car continued for another block and stopped at North Point Street, its front windshield and the ancient woodwork on the right side smashed. But the steelwork in front appeared intact. Officer Frank Coombs said he believed the cable car had lost the grip on the sub-pavement cable that pulls the cars up the hills of the city. Police said the cable car grip- man, Arthur Coats, and the conductor-brakeman, Lou Abels, were not injured. The car is moved by an underground cable coursing along a slot between the tracks at nine miles an hour. The gripman operates a steel grip which extends down into the slot and grasps the moving cable. Four devices can be used by the gripman and conductor to slow or stop the cable car. A wheel brake clamps a metal show down on the front wheel truck. Two 20-inch-long wood blocks press down on the two rails by a lever operated from the rear. An emergency brake drives a guillotine-like piece of metal down into the cable slot. Or the cable itself is used by the gripman to keep the car from gaining too much speed. Cause of the cable car failure was under investigation. the Nation's Wcatlief i the West Coast to the San Fraft- fey fMfc ASSOCfAtfcfil PftfeSS cisco Bay area and into Netf ftain whipped by blustery; Mexico.
