Seaman* said yesterday. "The airplane with this wing will carry out its missions, and we do not need a new wing," he said. At the same time, he agreed that the plane's performance can be improved by following recommendations of a scientific advisory board, and he noted that more and more specialized missions were proposed as the plane was being developed. The plane is built at Marietta, Ga., by Lockheed- Georgia. The board, headed by Dr. Raymono L. Bisplinghoff, dean of engineering at Massachusetts Institute of Technology, formally presented its report to Seamans late Tuesday. It recommended additional modifications to the wing structure in conjunction with other measures to provide an operationally useful vehicle. The board was established by the Defense Department. There had been earlier reports that the board would call for a completely new wing design, but Lockheed- Georgia's president, Robert Fuhrman, noted in a statement that such speculation "has been proved erroneous." "The summary of this report confirms our own prediction that on the basis of test measurements received to date, the C5A Galaxy fligfit performance will meet its contract guarantees," Fuhrman said. "The important thing is that the basic design and structure of the C5 are sound." Fuhrman promised careful further study of the scientific board's recommendations, and said some modifications may be needed. The board was established by the Defense Department after various difficulties cropped up during testing and early operations of the giant transport. All 10 of the huge planes built so far were grounded until inspections were completed. Wings were reinforced with aluminum braces and are now flying under restrictions imposed by the Air Force. Seamans said the Air Force will promptly install recording devices in each C5 that will monitor performance and hopefully report weak points throughout the life of each plane, thereby providing the Air Force with information needed to make changes. The advisers also recommended a second round of fatigue tests of the C5 wing. Static tests of the wing have progressed at this time to the point where 80 per cent of the design's ultimate strength has been demonstrated. Seamans told reporters the wing is designed for a useful life of 30,000 flying hours which works out to eight hours daily for 10 years, but that the stringent tests now under way have a goal of 100,000 hours of operation, providing a high safety mai gin. Pesticide laws too weak., says U.S. spokesman WASHINGTON (UPI) - An Agriculture Department official yesterday acknowledged that some dangerous bug and weed killers that were banned from public sale are still widely sold to unsuspecting consumers. "We do not believe the law as presently written is adequate to protect the public," Ned D. Bayley, director of science and education tor the department, told a Senate subcommittee. Bayley testified after anoth* er witness told the subconv mittee that DDT, a pesticide; and 2,4,5-T, a herbicide, are still widely sold and used despite publicized bans. The witness, Harrison Wellford of Ralph Nader's Center for the Study of Responsive Law, said the law imposes a long and cumbersome process of studies, orders and appeals which he said enables manufacturers to keep selling supposedly banned products for a year or longer. iifiV)l'y i-.HKi tht: !i J -V.f) hfe iill- MENWis THE MENACE fey jfomfe Ketcham Coutt refuses Judd sentence review The Arizona Supreme Court Tuesday refused to Interfere with appellate court decisions against Phoenix trunk murderess Winnie Ruth Judd and in favor of Pima County Sheriff Waldon Burr in grand jury ouster proceedings against him. The high court declined to review a decision by Division 1 of the State Court of Appeals saying that Maricopa County Superior Court cannot compel the State Board of Pardons and Paroles to recommend a reduction sought by Mrs. Judd in her life sentence. This decision held that Su- perior Court powers over the board are limited to seeing that the board respects the constitutional right of those coming before it to due process of law. In the Burr case, Division":!! of the appeals court upheld dismissal of Pima County grand jury accusations of official misconduct on Burr's part between 1958 and 1964. The accusations amounted to a criminal proceeding lor Burr's removal and were subject to dismissal because they were belatedly brought in 1968, the appellate conrt held. The Supreme Court refused to review this holding. 'I found out one thing about a wading pool: It's no good fof diving!'* Canadians to monitor prices in supermarkets OTTAWA (UPI) - The government's prices and incomes commission announced yesterday it has created a system to monitor monthly price charges for goods sold in Canada's largest supermarkets, department and discount store chains. As a new tactic in the government's prolonged battle against inflation, the price check will be used to insure .that trendsetting retailers stay within the guidelines agreed to by businessmen at the commission's national conference on price stability in February; Senate extends military leave bill WASHINGTON (AP) - The Senate passed yesterday a bill extending for two years the authority to grant an extra 30 days leave to members of the armed forces volunteering to serve an additional six months in a hostile area. The present authority expires June 30. The bill was sent to the House for concurrence in an amendment extending the authority two years instead of one. Bill would decorate war correspondents WASHINGTON (AP) U.S. war correspondents killed while covering developments in combat zones would receive a hero award under legislation entered in the House yesterday. Rep. Richard L. Ottinger, D-N.Y., introducing the proposal, said the repeated risks taken by Americans covering the Southeast Asia war are a display of "devotion to duty regardless of personal danger." \\ytchsMusicCity PERMANENT DISCOUNTS On All Top Pops & Classical* FROM THE ORIGINAL MOVIE SOUND TRACK BEATLES "LET IT BE" Contains Two Of Us, I Dig a Pony, Across The Universe, I Me Mine, Dit It, Let It Be, Maggie Mae, I've Got A Feeling, One Aftergog, The Long And Winding Road, For You Blue Get Back. 34001 ON APPLE RECORDS STEREO ALBUM Cat.

Chevy did away with rough-riding trucks more than a decade ago. We must have had the right idea, because now most pickups employ some form of independent front suspension. The closest competition is 1.5 million units behind, however. Double-wall cab and box. Chevy cabs get two tough walls of steel in all vital areas. Roof. Cowl. Sills. Doors. And rear body panels. What it means to you is more security, a quieter ride, and extended truck life. Also, there are smooth one-piece fender liners within the front fenders to turn back rocks. And ward off rust. All Fleetside boxes get the double-wall treatment, too. And unlike some other pickups, Chevy double walls are full depth in both the sides and the tailgate. The inside wall takes all the lumps. The outside wall takes all the compliments. Chevy's a lot of truck- for a lot less than the rest. Chevies live longer. These are the official figuresf showing how Chevies outlive other trucks. Going back as far as 1955, for example, over 56% of the Chevies built in that model year are still on the job.
