Section 0 Pages 1 to 14 EVENING TELEGRAPH Cknitfied Established Jan. 15, 1836 ALfOtt, ILL,, MONDAY, JULY 8, 1968 Price lOc Member Associated ftttn SST Hans Reported in Good Shape WASHINGTON (AP) - Hie head of the supersonic transport (SST) program says the project is in good shape despite House action in not appropriating funds for the big plane for the upcoming fiscal year. In fact, the funds were left out because SST program planners didn't want the money, Air Force Maj. Gen. J. C. Maxwell said in an interview, Maxwell is director of the SST program for the Federal Aviation Administration. "This decision against seeking money requested earlier was not forced down our throat; we took this position on our own without being told," Maxwell said about the House last week leaving SST funds out of the Transportation Department's $1.35 billion budget. "It may be hard to believe, sort of like a Grimm's fairy tale, that we did not want more money, but that is the situation," Maxwell stated. 'Although no new money is provided for the SST, the program will have available $186 million previously appropriated but not used. Maxwell said this is sufficient to keep the program going while Boeing Co., prime contractor for the SST, submits new designs for the 1,800-mile-an-hour plane. The plane, as originally designed, wouldn't have performed well enough to insure a commercially profitable air craft, Maxwell explained. But Boeing has caught up with the problem and things are going satisfactorily now, be said. Representatives of airlines that made downpaymenta on 122 SSTs with, Boeing win meet with officials of the aircraft firm next Tuesday to review the situation, Maxwell said. Maxwell said another widespread misconception regarding what he called recurrent false reports from abroad that the Franco-British SST, the Concorde, is in trouble. He said these reports, apparently originating from sources opposed to the Concorde, hurt the U.S. project because they give a false sense of leadershi] on the part of the American program.
