Visit to sin city costly venture By DENNIS NEELD TEHRAN, Iran (AP) Deep in the bowels of Tehran lies walled city known as The Cas tie. Unmarked on any map, i remains hidden from all but the most resourceful eler. foreign I The existence of Teliran's sin city is concealed from the for eign visitor by an almost uni versal conspiracy of silence Ask ils whereabouts and the re sponse is a shrug, a blank stare Tourists will find that getting Into The Castle is about as sim- ple as getting into Shangri-la. Within its 20-foot walls live some 6.000 pimps, prostitutes and various assorted thugs ant brothel-keepers. Police guard the single entrance and a close watch is kept on all who come and go. Two released on parole TORONTO (CP) The Star says that two of the six men sentenced to prison for the 1969 kidnapping of a Toronto woman have been released on parole after serving about 20 months of their 10-year sentences. The newspaper says that Peter Burns, M, and Ralph Cameron, 23, were released on parole last month. The two had pleaded guilty to the kidnapping in September, 1969, of Man- Nelles. Mrs. Nelles was released un- harmed by the kidnappers after payment of S200.000 in ransom. Four other Toronto men still are in custody, including former Metropolitan Toronto police offi- cer Richard Yenuart, 26, serv- ing 12 years. The others are Gary Adams, 31, serving 15 years, John Rogan, 30, and Mi- chael Whitside, 25, each serv- ing 12 years. or a comment about the weather.

He warned the approaches to The Castle are ill-lit and for- eigners are unwelcome. A group of Americans who recently made the expedition were turned back by an angry crowd who objected to Ihe presence of a woman in the party. SOME ONLY NINE Beyond the gate are a dozen dingy streets of two-storey ter- race houses criss-crossed by al- 1 e y w a y o. There are girls aplenty, but little gaiety. Women solicit from their doorways, only their big, dark eyes uncovered by their long black robes. In The Castle, almost every lorne is a house and there are about 1.500 girls to pick from. They range upwards from nine years old. many girls can continue as prostitutes beyond the age of said Mrs. Setareh Farman- 'armiau. She has made a de- .ailed study of The Castle and does social work among its in- hcbilanls.

Military push for place in U.S. space plans By CHARLES FOLEY London Observer Service LOS ANGELES VVilh the Apollo moon sliols ending next year, an unmistakably mili- tary tilt is now being given to the Niilion.il Aeronautics and Space (NASA) next long range venture: the mulli billion dollar space shut- tle program, for which the first contracts are now being awarded '.c West Coast aero- space giants. For security reasons, Con- gress has never publicly dis- cussed U.S. strategic aims in space, but everyone involved in tins area of effort knows (hat they are considerable and cost- ly. Concern is now being ex- pressed in the scientific com- munity here over the extent to which a peaceful program is being made over to meet the Pentagon's highly classi- fied requirements. The shultle, a 2001 vision due lo be realized within seven years, consists basically of two rocket planes hitched together. They lift off vertically piggy- back style, then the mother ship roughly the size of a seater jumbo jet re- leases the smaller craft, which goes into orbit 115 miles above the c-arth. Both planes can re- turn, landing horizontally at a conventional airport. In practice, the shuttle of- fers the first re usable space- ship that can carry scientists, VIPs and the first space warriors out to new 50-man space stations around the globe when these are built. NASA is in partnership with the U.S. Air Force, whose own, frankly military space plans have been repeatedly blocked by budget cutbacks. First the USAF a winged, reusable spacecraft, was can- celled; then its man- ned o.'hiting laboratory. The Pentagon is thus driven to :n- corporatc into NASA's civilian shultle the main potentialities of its own pet projects. Stra- tegic considerations are tread- ing on the heels of scientific payload. WASA, drawing federal funds for space exploration, admits that one recent design change to give the orbiting craft a delta shaped fuselage is for "operational flexibility." This USAF require m e n t will in- crease costs by million. NASA spokesmen at their re- search station near San Fran- cisco told me they could not begin to predict the many ways in which it could be used. "The Orbiler will be the workhorse of space, to be used: for any- thing from building a major orbiting station to preparing n manned mission to Mars." It is also known that the del- ta switch will enable the orbit- er, powered by its own rocket engines, to be used better in surveillance missions. It could detect alien rocket launchings from land bases or submar- ines, record troop movements, pinpoint missile sites and mili- tary installations, In event of hostilities or in the hope of anticipating them it could inspect hos- tile satellites, take them in tow, and neutralize such wea- pons as the FOB, the Soviet Fractional Orbital Bomba r d- mcnf satellite, which was test- fired this month. Once armed it could even engage in Uio first space combat. When Congress approved preliminary plans, the shuttle was presented as a cost cut- ting space program replacing the single shot lunar vehicles. Both booster and orbiter could be re used a hundred times or more. Tho orbiter is to have a large compartment of cubic feet, with a dozen pas- sengers plus crew in an air- sleeve and car- go. Overall, claims NASA, the shuttle will halve the cost of space travel. This sanguine view Is not borne out of an independent study made by the Rand "think- which believes the de- velopment is "just not easy to justify" on grounds of cost-ef- fectiveness. It was ordered and must be paid for by the USAF. For a distracted America un- aware of the military implica- tions, a curse in space for dec- adc-5 is being set; for NASA, it is a question of ils own sur- vival. After Apollo and Skylab, a three man space orbiting laboratory which completes its mission in 1373, the shuttle is all that remains of its ambi- tious plans. To cut corners, NASA now proposes another radical change. In the first stage of the program, a modified Sat- urn IV or Titan III rocket might send the smaller craft into orbit..
