SATURDAY, DECEMBER 12. 1970 TELL ME World Today NEW YORK (UPI) -The first knights of the air conquered the skies in frail, powered kites with wings of tautly stretched cloth. Within a decade we may see the aircraft industry turn again to wings of fabric instead of metal. Unbelievable? Not realty, for scientists in England and the United States are experimenting with composite graphite rayon non-wmven fabrics for aircraft parts that are twice as strong as steel and 40 per cent lighter than aluminum. If the experiments succeed, the adoption of these remarkable fabrics as replacements for steel, aluminum and titanium in many areas of the aircraft' could cut the weight of the parts in half and the total weight of a typical jet airliner 15 per cent. . That would, increase range 10 per cent or let a military plane carry 30 per cent more armament. Rate of Climb Increased Rate of climb would be increased at least 10 per cent and liftoff and take off roll distance shortened by 15 per cent. In calculating the value of a designed plane, the aircraft industry estimates that every pound of weight saved is worth $100 to $300 in price to the plane's user. So the industry is obsessed with weight saving. Rayon, the oldest man-made fibre, is manufactured from natural cellulose obtained from wood or cotton. Carbonized or graphite rayon yarns, soaked in epoxy resins, have a modulus of elasticity exceeding 40 million pounds to the square inch. In the United Shates, these yarns have been developed by United Carbide Corp. under the name Thornel. The yarns are cooked at temperatures up to 3,000 degrees and stressed.

Thornel presently cost around $350 a pound. To be used on a large scale in aircraft, it will have to be brought down to $25 to $50 a pound but Union . Carbide appears to believe that can be done if the demand develop sufficiently. You can't just weave this, stuff up and stretch it over an airplane wing-frame the way they did with cloth in the 1920s. The graphite rayon yarn has to be wound around a form, the cured to shape by heat and pressure—more like metal and fiberglass forming methods. And it tends to fracture if bent.over too sharp curves. . But when you get all through, it's still a textile fabric. If the aircraft industry adopts it on a. big scale it will be making a" circle back to its beginnings. DAILY CROSSWORD 41. Meander 42. Saucy DOWN 1. Assembles 2. Moss Hart's autobiography (2 wds.) 3.

MILITARY BLUNDERED OFTEN EARLY IN WAR MARINE GENERAL SAYS OUR TACTICS WERE BAD General Lewis Wall His honesty is admired By HENRY CATHCART Central Press Association Correspondent W ASHINGTON—Marine Gen. Lewis Walt said pubUcly the other day what many Pentagon officials have been admitting privately for nearly two years: "Vietnam was a brand new war and we (the military) didn't recognize it," he asserted. "We were thinking of World War II and Korean type conflicts and didn't understand you just can't go in and wipe out guerrillas." It took a long streak of honesty for this tough-minded officer who commanded Marines in Vietnam for more than two years to stand before newsmen and acknowledge that our long-term performance in Vietnam has cast grave doubts on the judgment of our top military leaders of the past One U.S. intelligence officer goes so far as to say, "It is difficult to conceive the military blunders that marked the early days of this war." Indeed it is. The late French historian Bernard Fall warned in his best-selling book "The Two Vietnams" just how difficult it 'would be for any foreign power to wipe out -intrenched guerrillas in a matter of months or a few years. . He noted that it took the British 11 years to defeat Communist guerrillas in Malaysa and that nation was a peninsula surrounded on three sides by water and protected to a major extent from enemy troop infiltration." . South Vietnam, on the other hand, is nearly totally exposed to infiltration along its borders with Laos and Cambodia. • • • • • HAIPHONG IMPORTANT—Walt, not unlike most military men, insists our failure to shut off the port of Haiphong was an important factor in prolonging of the war. Because of our fear of bringing' the Soviet Union into the war. Communist supplies by millions, of tons have flowed into North Vietnam via the harbor. But Walt well recognizes that cutting off supplies would not guarantee a quick end to the conflict. At no point in the struggle has the Communist guerrilla been anywhere nearly as well equipped as his American counterpart Many top military leaders now realize that this war should have never been sold to the American people as a conflict where large numbers of U.S. troops could liberate the people of South Vietnam from invaders from the north. Defeating determined guerrillas can be accomplished only in a matter of long years, hot months, and can best be accomplished by the soldiers of South Vietnam itself with large scale U.S. aid. In a word it is called Vletnamization, the present U.S. long range policy in Vietnam. Illustrating "how naive I was," Walt told of spending an hour talking with a village official and hearing how the situation in the.village was well under control. He was greatly encouraged, since the village had been a trouble spot for many months. # HOODWINKED—But as the general left the conference a woman slipped a piece of paper in his hand. When Walt had the * message translated, he found the official who had given him the glowing report of U.S. progress was actually the. number one Viet Cong in the settlement Knowledgeable Pentagon officials seem to feel that much has changed in Vietnam in the last two years. We now have realistic goals and the administration hopes to withdraw most of its combat troops in the next two years. " But" the military was tragically slow in learning the lessons of guerrilla warfare. It would seem appropriate to find out why, so it will never happen again. ACROSS 1. Aromatic spice 5. Veered 10.

Hopeful News in Medicine Dr. Coleman Our Goals An Now Realistic WANT ADS PAY TWO YEARS ago, I wrote about a spectacular hormone­ like substance that gave great promise in modem medicine. It is known as prostaglandin. Many scientists believe it will be the wonder substance of the next decade, comparing well with the discovery of cortisone and even the antibiotics. Known as a hormone regulator, prostaglandin plays a role in a wide diversification of medical problems. High blood pressure, asthma, thrombosis of blood vessels, and male sterility are only a few of the conditions affected by the fourteen known prostaglandins found in body tissue. Worldwide research is being carried on after being stimulated by the Swedish scientist who did the pioneer work in this field. Dr. Ulf S. von Euler, Nobel prize winner, estimates that more than 500 laboratories all over the world are studying some aspect of this intriguing substance. It is expected that this vast scientific investigation will uncover many more clinical applications, and give us greater insight into medical conditions that have as yet resisted the inroads of science. • • • A group of surgeons at the Harvard Medical School believe- that they can reduce the frequency of lung complications after surgery by teaching their patients to yawn. By yawning, they reason, the lungs can. be deeply inflated and thus prevent the collapse of small areas of the lung. Dr. Robert H. Bartlett and his. co-workers have shown the beneficial effects of this increased ventilation. • • » At recent meetings of the American College of Surgeons, Dr. Morton Freiman, of the Albert Einstein College of Medicine in. New York City, "presented an interesting report on Vitamin A deficiency. He and his colleagues showed that, in experimental animals, recovery from surgery was less rapid in those who had a marked Vitamin A deficiency. This knowledge may soon be considered as part of preoperative preparation of humans for surgery. • • • SPEAKING OF TOUR HEALTH: Safety glasses for hobbyists and power tool workers are sight savers. Dr.. Lester Coleman has prepared a special booklet for readers of this column, "Alcoholism—A Family Disease.'' It probes this grave problem and offers hopeful advice.
