D.C, lAP) -i The Air Force announced Fri-; day it has grounded its trouble- plagued A7D jpf warplanps for 'he second time in less thani three month. 1 ;. | A total of .19.1 regular Air; Forces and Air National Guard i A7Ds were ordered grounded "as a precautionary measure pending completion of •% review of engine problems." Truth Crash The action followed (he crash nf an A7D Thursday at Eglin Air Force Base, Fla. The pilot was killed in this tenth A7 crash since May. ; An Air Force spokesman said ii is not known yet whether the latest, crash was caused by the turbine vane problem that led to the grounding of about inn \7Ds June 2. "We're, going to look at every jiart of the engine in the light! nf the problems we've had," the spokesman said. The Air Force, said that, though grounded, the A7s would: be flown "if operational requirements demand," meaning an emergency. The A7D, which costs about $3.5 million each, was devel-^ oped originally by the Navy as an attack bomber.

(AP) State and city officials agreed Friday that the city's true deficit is a staggering $3.3 billion, some $500 million more than one previous estimate. "I think it is a shocking figure and that is why we are as close to default as we are today," said Felix Rohatyn, finance chairman of the Municipal Assistance Corp. More Layoffs The MAC officials raised,the spectre of additional immediate layoffs of about 4fi,000 city em- ployes to wipe out the deficit over the next three years unless other steps are taken to achieve equivalent savings. The huge deficit was amassed over the past four years and i evidently resulted from fiscal juggling employed by city offi- j WAKONDA: Devil's Rain cials to balance the budgets.

"With these figures, we now have the parameters we need to move ahead with the steps required to get the city back into the financial market," said William Ellinghaus, president of the corporation. "One of the big problems we've had was getting our handsv on the figures — that was very difficult," he said. Stumbling Block One of the stumbling blocks to selling the MAC bonds to banks and financial institutions had been the question of how large the city's hidden budget deficit, was.

At«nc* Prumt-Priiu HONG KONG - Chinese Premier Chou Kn-lai, 77, is reportedly suffering from "cancer in prostrate gland," the South China Morning Post said Friday. Quoting a letter received here by a former Chinese senior medical officer from his colleague in Tientsin who had attended a medical conference in Peking, the Post said early discovery of the cancer made treatment relatively easier for Chou. Chou reportedly did not have to undergo an operation, th« report said. The Post, quoted the letter as saying that specialists from the Cancer Research 'institute of the Chinese Academy of Sciences are treating the prime minister who has been under Intensive care since May 1974. Foreign press reports said Chou has been suffering from a heart condition though Peking has made no official statement on the nature of Chou's ailment. a roadblock did not merit dismissal.
