What's next in space? HOUSTON (AP) New knowledge and technology is changing space from a remote frontier open only to astronauts into a new dimension in the life of everyone, space experts be- lieve. Dr. Christopher Kraft, director of the space centre here, says the change will come about "sooner than we think" because space offers attractive opportunities for profit, for play and for enriching life on earth. He and others predict such possibilities as: families going to hotels in space for relaxation and fun. astro- nauts working in a space fac- tory to produce metals and crystals so pure and strong they outperform any ever made on earth. patients recovering in space hospitals where the absence of gravity gives them a chance at life they wouldn't have on earth. space labora- tories where scientists go to learn more about the earth and about the universe beyond. riding inter- national space shuttles to im- portant meetings and back home again, all in one day. NEAR REALITY Experts believe all these things will be realities in a dawning era of space. Although Mercury, Gemini, Apollo and Skylab space mis- sions produced only indirect benefits, Dr. Kraft says man is preparing to harvest benefits directly from space. Skylab, he says, conducted metal melting and manufac- turing experiments to prove that the strength of metals and alloys could be increased a hundredfold or more by melting and molding them without the weakening effects of earth's gravity; and another Skylab experiment produced semiconductor crystals 10 times larger and "far superior" to any formed on earth. The experiments already have attracted potential in- vestors in space factories or laboratories. "More and more companies are showing an Kraft said. "I think in another few years they're going to be interested in building their own space labs." In another area, the lack of gravity in space may present new hope for heart disease patients. Doctors have sug- gested that, with the stress of gravity removed, ailing hearts would not have to work as hard and could thus heal more easily. "I can imagine that there will be hospitals in space because of the implications of relieving stress on the Kraft said. Space also can provide an uncrowded pathway for extremely fast travel across long distances on earth. The key is the shuttle, an airplane- like craft' designed to be launched like a rocket ship and returned to earth like an airliner, to be used again and again, without the enormous cost of launching payloads into space. Such a shuttle will be making its first test flights late hi this decade. After an initial period of ex- perimentation using govern- ment astronauts, Kraft pre- dicted, companies will develop their own corps of and technicians trained to operate experiments, manufacture modules in space and operate shuttle services. Kraft believes man will take his profit from space before he again pushes out across the unlimited frontier in new exploratory efforts. Mars and other planets, he thinks, will wait many decades before they feel the tread of man. Remove 4 wheels. Check discs for run out, excessive stress and wear. Install new premium quality pads.

Vote about issues, not personalities LONDON (Reuter) Britain is to have a general election campaign and a national coal strike at the same time. Prime Minister Edward Heath has lost his gamble to head off a potentially disastrous strike and called a general election for Thursday, Feb. 28. But his failure to pull the miners back from the brink may have improved his chances of winning the election. Industrial strife at election time would be likely to hurt the Labor party, traditionally linked with the unions, even though the current battle is between the Conservatives and the unions. The miners' refusal to call off their strike has given Heath and his Conservative party new ammunition to fire in the election campaign now getting under way. Heath's theme is that he represents the moderate majority against politically motivated men trying to destroy all governments and create anarchy in Britain. it will probably be easier for Heath to hammer this message borne with the pits at a standstill, fuel stocks getting lower, and industry on a three-day work week. RECORD ATTACKED And it is likely to be harder for Harold Wilson and the Opposition Labor party to divert public attention from onion militancy, and swing the spotlight firmly on to what Wilson says is the Conservative government's "lamentable" record on rising prices and home buying mortgage rates, and "economic mismanage- ment." Dealing with the miners will be a first priority for whichever party wins the election. In 1926, the miners stayed on strike for seven months before agreeing to accept lower wages. A gen- eral strike called in their sup- port collapsed after only nine days, leaving a legacy of bitterness. They did not go on strike again until 1971-72 when they stayed out of the pits for seven weeks until the Conservative government agreed to 20-per- cent pay rises. One official who was at the final Downing Street negotiations session at that time has been quoted as saying: "If the miners had asked for Heath's underpants that night, they would have got it" The miners began an over- time ban last Nov. 12 in support of their wage demands which exceed the government's seven-per-cent anti-inflation ceiling. This has resulted in non-essential industry going on a threeday work week. For the first time in decades, this election is about issues, rather than personalities, even though Heath's personal charac- opponents say he is stubborn, and be dose to the centre of the campaign battle. Here's a perfectly legal way to use the Government's own rules to save on your income tax. The Government has a law that says, in effect: "If you save now for your retirement, you can deposit as much as into a registered retirement savings plan every year, and we'll let you knock it off your income." Once again this year, you can deposit up to of your earned income into a Canada Trust Registered Retirement Savings Plan, and then deduct that amount from your taxable income. If you already participate in a pension plan where you work, the maximum amount deductible using both plans is Registered Retirement Savings Plans can be especially advantageous for families where husbind and wife arc both wage earners.
