Viability of proposed mass
transit system questioned

Second pilot refused
to fly against Hanoi

IContinued from Page 1)
the "millage has no chance of pas-
sing."
AATA has decided the fare for
an individual ride in the new sys-
tem, regardless of distance or
number of transfers, will be twen-
ty-five cents. Monthly subscriptions
may also be issued, with lower
fares for senior citizens and under-
privileged persons.
AATA plans to provide several
vehicles to accommodate severely

handicapped riders.
Comtran would divide the city
into a variable number of zones de-
pending on the time of day and the
expected ridership.
For instance, during the r u s h
hours, described by Simsar as 6:30-
9 a.m. and 3-6 p.m. on weekdays,,
the city would be divided into 11
zones utilizing 52 vehicles.
On the weekends the city would,
be composed of only four zones,
utilizing 15 vehicles.
Intra-zone transportation would
be accomplished exclusively by
dial-a-ride minibuses. The r i d e r
would merely telephone a ispateh
dsac-er, and be picked up at his home
and taken to the destination by a
single vehicle.
Traveling from one zone to ano-
ther is somewhat more complex.
The rider again telephones a dis-

patcher and is picked' up by a dial-,
a-ride minibus. The minibus takes'
the rider to a express bus stop.
The rider then transfers to theex-
presssbus. If the rider's destina-
tion is not on the express bus
route, another transfer to a mini-
bus would be necessary.
Simsar claims the major advant-
ages of Comtran over the city's
present mass transit system a r e
convenience and speed. "Comtran
is far more convenient than stan-
dard passenger systems because
we will go to the passengers, rath-
er than have the passengers come
to us," Simsar says.
He adds that once the riders call
the dispatcher they should arrive
at their destinations within 30 min-
utes, "unless a second transfer is
needed which should be less thanI
ten per cent of the time."

WASHINGTON (A)-A second pi-
lot has been charged with refusing
to fly a combat mission against
North Vietnam during the heavy
Christmas bombing campaign, the
Air Force has disclosed.
The officer was identified Fri-
day as Capt. Dwight Evans Jr., 26,
a pilot of an F4 Phantom fighter-;
bomber assigned to the 34th tacti-
cal fighter squadron in Thailand.
The Air Force said Evans balked
at bombing North Vietnam on Dec.
18, the day President Nixon launch-
ed the big air attacks against the;
Hanoi-Haiphong area.
On Jan. 10, the Strategic Air
Command described Capt. Michael
Heck, 30, of Chula Vista, Calif., a
B52 pilot, as "the first and only"
B52 crew member to refuse to
fly combat missions in the Vietnam
war.
Heck, a veteran of 275 combat'
missions, said he refused on Dec.
27 to go on because the "goals do
not justify the mass destruction
and killing."
Both men are accused of failing

to obey a lawful order and face
possible court-martials. Both pilots
are now assigned to administrative
duties at their bases in Thailand
while their cases are investigated.
In acknowledging thecharges
against Evans, the Air Force also
acknowledged two previous cases
of B52 crewmen in the United
States who were discharged as con-
scientious objectors.
But the Air Force stood by its
assertion that no other B52 pilots
in Southeast Asia refused orders
and denied reports that other
bomber crewmen were quietly sent
home after refusing to fly missions
over Hanoi.
The Air Force also said its rec-
ords show that two other pilots had
been discharged after refusing to
fly combat missions during the
Vietnam war.
The Air Force spokesman said
the two other pilots "refused to
fly types of missions rather than
a specific mission" and their of-
fenses were not as serious as those
of Evans and Heck.
