A FRENCH CONCORD SST landed at the NATO base Tuesday attracting curiosity 98 winners of a publicity campaign with a tour of Iceland.

The controversial aircraft was chartered by a Spanish Wholesale firm to provide Photos By PH3 Vic Caffaro White Fatcan Volume 33 Number 39 Keflavik, Iceland September 30, 1977 NEW ENLISTED QUARTERS were officially accepted from the Icelandic Prime Con- tractor by the Naval Station Monday. Personnel will begin moving into the new apartments on Oct. 3. Carnival Booth response high Initial response to the request for Carnival Booth sponsors has been excellent, according to Maj. John Meyer, Carnival Operations Chairman, who reports that approximately 75 or 80 available booth spaces have been spoken fori A perplexing question has apeared tho.ugh. Free enterprisers of the NATO Base, where are you? So far, no requests have been received for flea market booths, and you just might be missing your chance to market your wares to the largest single crowd that gathers on the NATO Base. If the $60 booth rental fee for Flea Marketeers is holding you back, consider sharing the booth (and overhead expense) with a friend or two. By lowering your overhead and increasing the products available, you increase your sales potential manyfold. All profits from the booth are yours to keep. Cdr. Bruce Maxon, Carnival Chairman, informs us that one of the major challenges remaining to be met for this year's Carnival is that of obtaining volunteer workers to put it all together, run it for nine hours and take it down. "We can promise the volunteers three things," said Maxon, " and they are: hard work, our gratitude, and a deep sense of accomplishment as they look around them on Carnival Day." If you can wield a hammer, and spare a few hours to help build booths on Oct. 27 and 28, Ltjg. Al Jensen, Construction Chairman would like to hear from you at 4689 (work) or 4451 (home). Or, if your volunteer talents are more administrative, please contact Ens. Bill Harris, Sales and Promotion Chairman at 5119 (work) or 5165 (home.) Because he needs volunteers to sell an anticipated 100,000 tickets during the Carnival, and to count receipts the following day. We asked one man in uniform, who we knew was doing a one-year unaccompanied tour in Iceland, why he had volunteered to help with the "Parent-Teacher Organization Carnival, and his reply echoed exactly the spirit in which volunteers are being solicited. "Well, I'm not a "p"," he said, "and obviously not a "I", but helping this "0" is going to give me one day to remember in my tour up here." Won't you help too? PTO Carnival The PT° Carnival Committee ask that all booth sponsors provide a representative to the Concessionnaire.'s meeting to be held on Wednesday. Oct. 5, at 8 p.m. in the high school Multi- purpose room (location of meeting has not yet been confirmed). Among the topics to be discussed at the meeting are: booth location/layout, ticket handling, and booth construction guidance. If your organization has questions, bring them along, and the carnival committee will try to answer them before the evening is ended. New look in enlisted housing Naval Station accepts three apartment buildings A new chapter in enlisted housing availability opened under sunny skies Monday when the Naval Station accepted three newly constructed apartment buildings. Never before in the history of U.S. Forces in Iceland has the out- look for enlisted housing looked so promising. The three new buildings contain a total of 48 apartments, 18 two-bedroom and 30 four-bedroom, and reflect ex- cellent taste in modern architecture, color coding, and landscaping. The complex, which overlooks scenic Keflavik and the Atlantic is complete with a courtyard, parking area and protected play area for children. Utilitiesman Second Class Peter Wallace and Radioman Second Class Andrew Skrobanski will share the honor of being the first families to move into the complex on Oct. 3. The buildings accepted Monday were only three of a total of 11 enlisted apartment buildings being constructed by the Icelandic Prime Contractors at a cost of $17 million. When all 11 buildings are completed they will contain 70 two-bedroom and 114 four-bedroom apartments for a total of 184 apartments. Lieutenant Ronald R. Hudson, Assistant Public Works Officer, stated that in addition to the three buildings that were accepted Monday they expect to accept three more in December, three in March and the final two in May. When asked how will the three new buildings affect the housing list and, secondly, how will the total project affect the housing list, Lt. Hudson responded, "The three (building accepted Monday) will virtually.elimate the .;';";'".¦ .housing waiting, list,: depending upon '.' how many people come in between; now and December. -But the ones (buildings to be accepted) that come in December will-': definitely eliminate any waiting time ;¦: for enlisted personnel.". . Lt. Hudson also said that, "The construction and what's being done in housing is in direct compliance with the 1974 Memorandum of Understanding between the governments of the United States and Iceland which requires all sponsored military families to live on station."
