Jets To Be Hauled Out Of Mothballs OTTAWA (CP) - Defence Minister Donald MacdonaJd, in office six days, has pledged to put Canada's resting CF-5 jet planes to work and to re-exani' ine a $220 million deslroyer program. Torpedo Boat Used By JFK Believed Foimd SAN DIEGO, Calif. (AP) -Eugene A. Valencia, a Second World War air ace, says he has a "good lead" to the possible location of the late president John F. Kennedy's PT-109 torpedo boat and plans to salvage it. Kennedy's PT-109 was rammed and sunk by a Japanese destroyer in the Solomons in 1942 and Kennedy was credited with helping to keep sin-viv-tog crew members alive. Valencia said Australian and New Guinea divers had pin pointed the location of the boat believed to be the PT-109. He said navy records showed �where the PT-109 was sliced in two by tte Japanese destroyer, but he acknowledged that navy records also show other U.S. torpedo boats were sunk in the same area. Pearl gets invited to a lot of weddings Porpliyty Pearl Ihat Is. A light, bobbly wino tiiat's tielped toast a host of brides lately. Why? Because Porphyiy Pearl's clear pearly colour, zesty bubbles, and not-loo-sweet, not-too-dry taste... all add up to a delicious and eye-appealing treat And maybe it's because, served at the right temperature (50" F.) Porphyry Pearl is amazingly lilfe champagne. Imported from the vineyards of Australia, this is fine light wine yoo can serve with pride and confidence. For an occasion such as toasting the bride. Or simply a private toast at home. Because Porphyry Pearl is pure wine... made 100% from grapes. Porphyry Pearl creates its own bubbles-all by itself. Porphyry Pearl... In a champagne glass 1 In an interview yesterday with The Canadian Press, Mr. Macdonald said some 70 of the jets will be hauled out of storage-where they were placed immediately after coming off the Canadair production line- and given operational roles. nwse now in mothballs repr*. sent the bulk of a 115-plane, $215 million order placed by the government a few years ago. Only two squadrons of the ground support aircraft have been formed, one at Cold Lake, Alta., Que other at Bagotville, Que. It is understood that one of the options under consideration for putting the balance to work involves forming a squadron for assignment to NATO's Dorthern flank in Norway. Others could be used to help protect Canadian sovereignty in the Arctic. Mr. Macdonald said the future of the destroyer program was "one of the prtocipal problems on my desk as I came into the department." DECISIONS NEEDED Concerning its future, he said, "We are going to have to make some early decisions." Under the program, four destroyers, each equipped to carry two helicopters, are being built at St. Lawrence River shipyards. Recently it was disclosed that the program is a year or more behind schedule and may re-qinre more than the origLrjally estimated $220 milliioa before it is finished. The destroyers are designed primarily for anti-siAmarine warfare. Despdte the uncertainty surroundiiig the program, Mr. Macdonald said be could foresee no dtange from this primary role for Canada's maritime farces. He could see no inconsistency between maintaining this role, aimed at protecting the approaches to Canada's Atlantic and Pacific coasts, and the government's increasing emphasis on protecting Canadian sovereignty in the North. Mr. Macdonald said Canada will continue its nuclear role in North American air defence, despite its decision to get out of the nuclear role in Kurope, tlirough the Bomarc missUe and the Voodoo interceptor. Mr. Macdonald said there still Friday, October 2, 1970 - THE lETHBRIDGE HERALD - 17 is a significant bomber threat to North America from the Sovirt Union. SejL-ved cold, it speaks a warm welcome.
