Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 10, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta -Thtmrftiy, 10, 1770 THf IETHDRIOGE HERALD 11 West Germany To Spend Millions On Aircraft And Space Industry By PETEIl HEIIAK BONN (AP) The West Ger- man government plans to pump nearly million into the aircraft and space industry over the next rive years to help over- tome the country's virtual stag- nation in the field since the end of the Second World War. The main thrust of the pro- gram, outlined in a report to the Bundestag is sup- port for three aircraft projects being developed with other countries. The projects are a multi-role combat aircraft, which is a fighter plane for the late 1970s being developed with Britain and Italy: the French-German A-3COB airbus, and the VFW- 614, a 40-passenger short-range aircraft with Dutch and British co-operation. The largest part of the finan- cial commitment for the 1970-74 I period, about million, has been earmarked for military projects, mainly the fighter. STILL IN WOUKS This plane, still on the draw- ing board, is expected to put into practical use the German industry's research on short takeof fs and landings. It is to replace in the late the .United Stales-designed F-104G Slat-fighter and the Italian-de- signed Fiat G-91. now basic equipment of the West German air force. Assembly of those two planes under licence has been the sta- ple of the aircraft industry, which employs 50.000. The airbus is to be a short- and medium-range plane carry- ing 250 to 300 passengers. Its prototype is to fly in 1972, and it will go into service in 1974. FOR RENT Building with Sq.

CAN'T DECIDE Lufthansa said it could not de- cide on a plane due to fly in the mid-1970s but that it would give "benevolent consideration" if the plane equals its competitors in technology and economy. The VFS-614, to be built with more than 80 per cent West German participation, is to- be in service by 1973. It is the Eu- ropean project with the largest West German participation since the end of the war and its development is based or. a 1967 market study that predicted de- mand for such a plane for short routes. In space, the report foresees continuation of participation in projects with other West Euro- pean countries. It also pledges support to the development of an experimental communica- tions satellite with for a sun shot with the United States, called the Helios. Both are at an early stage.

(CP) "At the moment it doesn't ap- pear that any fisherman should fear losing his livelihood" as a result of the oil slick off the Prince Edward Island and New Brunswick shores from the sun- ken barge Irving Whale, Dr. John Anderson said in an inter- view here. The director of the fisheries research board biological sta- tion of Canada here said there is "good evidence the thing may be well in hand although it could go awry from any unfa- vorable change in wind." He estimated the value of the fishery in the area at roughly million but said it could not be destroyed because there was not enough oil for such a disas- ter. The area considered is in a 100-mile radius of the slick. Much of the potential damage could be to herring gear such as seins. The matter of any ban on fishing would be a federal one j but he Ihoughl there was not 'enough information yet to war- rant such action. Dr. Anderson said herring fishing is in progress north of Hie area. The lobster season for P.E.I, is not scheduled to end until Oct. 10. The groundfish as cod. haddock and hake feeding on the bottom not likely to be affected unless clean-up operations in- cluded sinking the oil.
