Navy may split Seafarer
between U.P. and Wisc.
MENOMINEE (UP1) - The Navy is considering a plan to
divide its much-maligned Seafarer Project in two - with one
station in Michigan's Upper Peninsula and the other in North-
ern Wisconsin, a Pentagon official said yesterday.
Lt. Cmdr. John Iloshko of the Defense Department's Tele-
communica'ions Command said the Navy started exploring the
idea at the suggestion of two Seafarer foes, Reps. Philip Ruppe
(M-Mich.), and M. Robert Carr (D-Mich.).
However, a Ruppe aide called Hoshko's statement "an, ab-
solute lie" and a spokesman for Carr would confirm only that
his hssss had suggested the site in Wisconsin.
loshko acknowledged that the dual sites would hinder the
range and effe:tiveness of the underground communications grid
and that, together, they would be smaller than the 4,200 square
acres originally hoped for.
One site would be at the K.I. Sawyer Air Force Base near
Marquette, Mich., and the other at the Clam Lake, Wis., site
where Seafarer, then dubbed "Project Sangtuine," had earlier been
tested, Hoshko said.
He emphasized that the plan wis only in the early stages
of consideration and that such concerns as its environthental
impact have not yet been gauged.

TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) - De-
troit's 1977 cars are using fiber
glass reinforced plastics (FRP)
in over 150 different appli-
cations, reports a fiber glass in-
dustry executive.
"The uses range from fmsint-
end to rear-end panels and in-
clude instrument consoles,
brake pistons, bobbins, valves,
ducts and brackets," said Bert
F. Elliott, vice president of
Owens - Corning Fiberglas
Equipmnent and Transportation
Reinforcements Division.
"One reason for the in-
creased use is because a single
FRP component may replace a
metal structure composed of
many units. Often a manufac-
turer can cut out several as-
sembly steps when designing
with fiber glass plastics," he

THE TOUCH OF ROYALTY was supposed.to cure disease back in the 16th Century, but these
20th Century Britons in Windsor seemed content just to get a good look at Prince Charles
Monday, as Queen Elizabeth's Silver Jubilee celebration reached its climax.
Queen' Elizabeth marks 25
years on throne with parade

LONDON (P) - With an erup-
tion of patriotic fervor and
medieval pageantry unmatched
in a quarter century, Britain
laid its troubles aside yester-
day to celebrate the silver jub-
ilee of the reign of Queen
Elizabeth II.
Neither intermittent rains,
gusting winds, the loss of em-
pire nor the erosion of the Brit-
ish pound seemed to matter to
the jubilant throngs lining pro-
cession routes from Bucking-
ham Palace to the ancient
Guildhall, waving Union Jacks
and chanting: "We love' the
queen. We want the queen!"
IN HER JUBILEE address at
a festive luncheon at the Guild-
hall, the 51-year-old monarch
recalled how as a princess of
21 she had pledged her life
"to the service of our people,
and I asked for God's help to
make good that vow"
"Although that vow was made

in my salad days, when I was
green in judgment, I do not re-
gret nor retract one word of
it," she said.
Millions of Britons and for-
eign visitors lined every step of
the Queen's way in London. Mil-
lions more celebrated the holi-
day in open-air parties in vil-
lage and town squares through-
out the British Isles, and hun-
dreds of millions watched
the proceedings on television
around the world.
NOT SINCE Elizabeth's cor-
noration 24 years ago had so
many Britons turned out for a
national celebration, and their
fervor testified to the immense
popularity of the woman who
has ruled through some of 'the
bleakest years of Britain's his-
When her reign began, unem-.
ployment was at 203,000 and
the pound was one of the proud-
est currencies in the West. To-

day there are 1.31 million job-
less, the pound is worth four
times less than 25 years ago
and Britain is staggering under
a $17 billion foreign debt.
The celebration marked her
accession to the throne on Feb.
6, 1952, when her father, King
George VI, died. Her formal
coronation came 16 months lat-
er. The jubilee was scheduled
for June in hopes of good wea-
TIlE BRITISH had prepared
for months for, the event, cover-
ing their island elation with
banners, flags, posters and slo-
gans. Thousands of people be-
gan lining! the streets Monday
night to be assured of a glimpse
of the proceedings.
The big day began when the
queen, dressed in a simple dress
of rosebud pink and a double
strand of pearls and accompa-
nied by Prince Philip in the uni-
form of an admiral of the fleet,
mounted the gilded state coach
for the procession to St. Paul's
Cathedral; the 267-year-old ar-
chitectural landmark designed
by Christopher Wren.
Immediately behind the royal
carriage was Prince Charles,
heir to the throne, riding horse-
back in the uniform of the
Welsh Guards. Then came open
carriages carrying the preg-
nant Princess Anne and her
husband Capt. Mark Phillips,
the queen mother, the royal
princess and slizabeth's sister,
Princess Margaret, followed by
. 3,000 troops in dress uniform
and 10 bands.
