SOMETHING UNKNOWN But when all discount has been made for human error, lack of experience and Ihe German air force, there is still an x-factor which has so far defied analysis. The germans took Ihe origi- nal Star-fighter, which had been designed as a high-speed "fair weather" lighter, and turned it into "a maid of all only an intercep- tor but an all weather long- range nuclear bomb carrier as well as reconnaissance plane. In the process it became a much heavier, more sophisti- cated and more delicate air- craft.

Grant L. Hansen, assistant secretary of the air force, said at the rollout that the fixed-wing fighter would out-climb, out-manoeuvre and out-accelerate any fighter threat in existance or on the horizon.

It is equipped with long-range all-weather attack instrument picks up and amplifies the sound waves of blood flowing through a surface artery. The doctors say that he-cause the opthalmic artery is a branch of the internal carotid artery which serves the hrain, the sound is a reflection of the condition of the internal carotid. This is a common site of vascular disease leading to stroke. Most strokes occur when the internal carotid becomes clogged, the doctors said. If the clogging s discovered hefore a stroke occurs, they said, treat inent to prevent the stroke can he persons clrowied in floods NEW DELHI (Renter) More than 500 persons have drowned in floods in just ona district of the northeast Indiai state of Assam during the las few days, the Press Trust o India news agency reported today.
