The Apollo 15 crew will start out at speeds of three to four miles on how until mastering the art and will not venture more than four miles from the lun- ar londer, shown ot left. Because of'lack of gravity to hold the car down, it could over- turn on a curve much easier than a car on earth. Apollo 15 flight is scheduled for next July 25. _____ Collapsed Rolls-Royce company is nationalized Mr. Chretien was replying to a Commons question by Ran Harding who asked whether'the federal government is trying to buy back or terminate the tim- ber removal in the park.

The project, expected now to be completed by the middle of 1972, was stalled while other sites were assessed but the i city's development appeal board finally decided the origi- nal site was the most accept- I able. Institute president Fred Jor- j i genson said new parking poll- j i cles on the technical school's grounds would eliminate many j of the traffic and parking diffi- i culties. The residence will hold about 500 students.

He would not say what south- ern land the federal government is after. LONDON (Reuter) The House of Commons agreed Friday to nationalize most of the collapsed Rolls Royce con- cern after a debate lasting more than 12 hours. A bill ixder which the govern- ment would take control of the vital air and marine engine di- visions of the company was given an unnopposed third read- ing. The bill now will go to the House of Lords for a final read- ing Monday and is expected to become law early next week. There were extraordinary scenes in the Commons Thurs- day night as parliamentarians of all parties harangued govern- ment ministers on legal details of the bill. Members also wanted to know whether the company would go ahead with production of the RB-211 engine, ordered by Lock- heed Corp. for its TriStar jet. As the debafe started, the Rust, salt eating stranded ships GREAT BITTER LAKES. Egypt (AP) Rust and salt are eating away the 14 foreign ships stranded here since tlie outbreak of Arab-Israeli hostili- ties in June, 1967. Foreign Car (Leth.) Ltd. APPOINTMENT Abandoned by their original crews, and rejected by their owners, the ships are watched by a group of 60 men delegated by Lloyds, the insurance group whiih now holds title to the ves- sels. The ships are huddled in small groups to withstand wind and sandstorms. An American ship, the Afri- can Glenn, is reported in dan- ger. One Greek sailor looks after the vessel and reports con- stant water leakage into it. Another American ship, the Observer, anchored in Lake Timsah, also is reported in poor shape. SEAMEN FREED American, British and French seamen were freed from this "open air prison" last July. Today there are only nine Ger- mans, 21 Poles, 13 Bulgarians and six Czechoslovaks still on duty aboard the stranded ships. They try to keep up their spir- its. Capt. Georg Fisher of the West German Nordwind said seamen meet on his "church ship" every Sunday, ostensibly for prayers. "But they drink beer in- stead." he said. Fisher is prayer leader.

Aviation Supply Minister Frederick Corfield said the gov- ernment would pay costs on the engine until March 5. This, said Corfield, was to allow Lockheed to consider whether it wished to renegotiate the contract with Royce. An uneasy alliance between government and Opposition members in the early stages of the debate soon deteriorated into a bitter battle as the hours licked by. Senior ministers appeared in total disarray as MPs pressed for details of the fate of Rolls- Royce's supplying companies, who face bankruptcy as a result of Rolls collapse a week ago Thursday. I Hostile members were in some way placated at 4 a.m., when a junior minister prom- ised a board of trade inquiry into the Rolls debacle. FUTURE NOT REVEALED Bu at no time was the House given any indication of the pos- sible future of the RB-211 pro- ject. Ministers could only say that the government was in close contact with the American gov- ernment and Lockheed, and that it hoped the RB-211 contract could be successfully renego- tiated. It was the fixed-price nature of the 1968 engine contract which led Rolls-Royce into sub- stantial losses and eventual re- ceivership. Effects have already been felt in California, where about 6.500 Lockheed workers employed on the TriStar L-1011 jet were being laid off. want to make a change for the better!
