Air Force field units by Baird-Atomic, Inc., of » Cambridge. Mass., under a 480,000 contract with the Air Force Systems Command's Research and Technology Division (RTD). The device will be capable of detecting the quantity of submicroscopic metal particles which indicate aircraft engine wear and do it without the controlled, laboratory conditions that now are necessary. ~ With the spectrometric analyzers located at selected U. S. Air Force bases the engines can be tested on the spot, thus eliminating the necessity for sending the samples to a distant laboratory and waiting for the results. The technique of determining : engine "health" by measuring the degree of wear is not new, but its application to gas turbine engines is comparatively recent. During the original Air Force program, more than 8,000 sam- ^ pies of engne oil from three different types of fighter aircraft were analyzed. - Such oil samples are extracted periodically from the engine oil system and examined f o r metallic contamination by spectrometric analysis. In this tech- niaue, the oil specimen is vaporized by heat, and its light output separated by wave Flying Objects Friend, Foe Or Fantasy ous metals in the oil sample. Different metals show up in different colors in the spectrum. The engine oil analyzer is an additional tool to determine possible future malfunction of the engine. Trouble can often .be detected by ground crews during engine run-ups; at other times pilots might detect future trouble by the sound or action of an engine, or by behavior of the gauges. In no case can a determination be made as to the seriousness of the trouble until the engine is disassembled. At present, six laboratories are used to support aircraft in the United States. One Air Force laboratory in Japan, and two Obits In The News NEW YORK (UPI) —Mrs. Gertrude Folks Zimand, 71, for half a century one of the country's leading campaigners against child labor abuses, died Tuesday in a fall from her sixth floor apartment.

Other points, however, were brought up. One of them was the oft-repeated charge by some believers that the truth is being covered up by the military establishments. Of course this was denied. Thank Friends of Curry and Roosevelt Counties, even though I was defeated, I feel I have gained much. I renewed old acquaintances, met many, many people, and gained lots of friends. I worked hard and experienced an enjoyable campaign. I want to thank you for your support and your enthusiastic contributions both Democrats and Republicans. Thank you very much. W. 0.
