First 'Skytrain

The Michigan Daily-Sunday, September 25, 1977-
to flv Ilondav

M v my . r V

LONDON (AP) - The' first Skytrain
jetliner takes off for New York tomor-
row, climaxing a private entrepren-
eur's six-year battle to drastically re-
duce transatlantic air fares.
On the flight deck will be Freddie
Laker - the Briton behind what has
been called a "second American
revolution" in the travel industry.
A SELF-MADE aviation tycoon who
once swept floors and made the tea in
an aircraft factory, Laker fought with
the big airlines, aviation authorities
and the British government to launch a
"no-frills," no-reservation service to
New York on his Laker Airways.
The 55-year-old Laker is almost sin-
glehandedly responsible. for slashing
the cost of transatlantic air travel with

his Skytrain service from London's
Gatwick Airport.
The first 345 customers in line Mon-
day morning for the inaugural Skytrain
flight to John F. Kennedy Airport in
New York will pay just $103.25 for a one-
way ticket. Coming back, the fare is
$135, making the round-trip fare
THE ROUNDTRIP for normal econ-
omy flights is $563.50, and the fare for
supersonic Concorde flights to Wash-
ington is $1,515.
Laker says he expects 80 per cent of
Skytrain customers will belong to the
"knapsack and guitar brigade" on
American college campuses, and
passengers are invited to bring their
own sandwiches and beer. "Hot meals

will cost a few dollars extra.
The big international airlines hav
opposed the Skytrain proposals, first
put forth in 1971. Laker claims the legal
battle to implement them cost him $1
WHEN APPROVAL finally came
from the U.S. Civil Aeronautics Board
and the British Civil Aviation Authori-
ty, the "big three" transatlantic
carriers - Pan American, TWA and
British Airways - countered with a
cut-rate fare of their own.
Starting Sept. 15, they began offering
"standby" seats on their scheduled
flights to New York at $110, with stand-
by" seats on their scheduled flights to
New York at $110, with standby seats
back to London at $146. Starting tomo r-

row they will offer "budget" fares,
bookable 21 days in advance, of $160 one
way to New York and $280 for round-
One thing Laker has going for him;is
low overhead. Laker Airways has 1,040
employes headquartered in sparsely
furnished offices at Gatwick Airport,
while British Airways, for instance, has
56,000 workers and the usual prestige
offices in London's West End and down-
town Manhattan.
Laker's DC10s will leave Gatwick
Airport at 5:30 p.m., 12:30 p.m., EIT
daily, and return from New York at 11
each night. Skytrain can carry 4,830
passengers a week, while rival airlines
advertising cheap standby fares will,
among them, offer 2,900 seats a week.
OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - The
Golden State Warriors went from the
basketball ridiculous to the sublire
in just 24 hours during the 1976-t7
season. On March 18 they scored only
eight points in the first quarter of e.
98-85 loss to the Los Angeles Lkr
It was a two-year low.
The next night, however, thk
Warriors pulverized Indiapa, 150-9t
It not only was the largest point tota
.far Golden State since the Warriors
moved to the West Coast in 1962 ,bud
the 59-point margin of victory wad
the largest in five years or since tho
NBA record was set by, the Lo

Betty Ford arrives in Moscow
to narrate Bolshoi 'Nutcracker'

From Wire Service Reports
MOSCOW - Former First Lady Bet-
ty Ford arrived in Moscow yesterday to
tape a joint Soviet-American television
Christmas gift for the children of the
United States.
Ms. Ford will be the hostess for a
special NBC television presentation of
the Bolshoi Ballet performing the
"Nutcracker," a classic story about a
young girl and her love for her favorite
toy, a wooden nutcracker.
SHE ARlRIVED with an entourage of
Secret Service agents and personal
companions, and was greeted by offic-
ials of the state television and radio
ministry, who gave her flowers.

She said she would also use her week-
long visit "to see everything I can while
I am here."
Ms. Ford, 59, was last in Moscow in
the 1940s with her husband, then a con-
gressman. She did not actompany Ford
to his summit meeting with Soviet lead-
er Leonid Brezhnev at Vladivostok in
"I AM A great fan of the Bolshoi and
especially of the 'Nutcracker Suite,'
Ms. Ford said at the airport. She said
her initial impression*of Moscow was
that it was "much lighter and much
brighter" than she remembered.
Ms. Ford is under a two-year contract
with NBC television, but the Bolshoi
performance is part of a special agree-
ment, according to her press agent.
"We were contacted in Colorado
about a month ago by NBC and she

liked the idea of working with the Bol-
shoi very much."
MS. FORD and her husband, former
President Gerald Ford, have "very
favorable control" under their NBC
agreements. The former president is
under a six-year contract.
The press agent would not disclose
how much Mrs. Ford is being paid for
her appearance with the Bolshoi.

N Y. school
testing called
impro per
ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - State Uni-
versity officials have been subpoanaed
to answer allegations that the State
university at Albany conducted "mild"
electric shock and other psychological
tests on hundreds of students, children
and others without proper supervision
or the informed consent of the subjects.
The State Health department sub-
poanaed acting State University Chan-
cellor James Kelly and other university
system officials to appear at hearings
next month.
day ordered the university to halt the
experiments which the department said
were conducted for the last two years
without proper supervision or full, in-
formed consent of the subjects. The ex-
Wriments involved hundreds of state
university students, children, who
ranged from pre-school to sixth grade,
and others, the department said.
9 At least one injury had been reported,
a student whose face was burned by ex-
Oosure to a light source, researchers at
tthe university said.
The experiments range from a test to
see if children would pick up a specific
toy they had been told to avoid, .to a
self-perception" test aimed at finding
dut whether subjects thought electric
siocks hurt more or less when ad-

Betty Ford: 'Excited'
Ms. Ford, who studied dance under
Martha Graham, admitted that the
prospect of offering commentary on
one of the world's greatest ballet troup-
es is somewhat frightening.
"I'm very excited," she said. "I have
never worked with the Bolshoi before
and I'm a little apprehensive."
