Commission Guidance Regarding Client Commission Practices Under Section 28(e) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934
The Securities and Exchange Commission is publishing for comment this interpretive release with respect to client commission practices under Section 28(e) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (``Exchange Act''). Section 28(e) of the Exchange Act establishes a safe harbor that allows money managers to use client funds to purchase ``brokerage and research services'' for their managed accounts under certain circumstances without breaching their fiduciary duties to clients. In light of the Commission's experience with Section 28(e) and in recognition of changing market conditions, the Commission is proposing to provide further guidance on money managers' use of client assets to pay for research and brokerage services under Section 28(e) of the Exchange Act. This release also reiterates the statutory requirement that money managers must make a good faith determination that commissions paid are reasonable in relation to the value of the products and services provided by broker-dealers and that broker- dealers must be financially responsible for the brokerage and research products that they provide to money managers and must be involved in ``effecting'' the trade.
Strategic Advisory Group Meeting of the U.S. Strategic Command
The Strategic Advisory Group (SAG) will meet in a closed session on December 8 and 9, 2005. The mission of the SAG is to provide timely advice on scientific, intelligence, technical, and policy- related issues to the Commander, U.S. Strategic Command, during the development of the Nation's strategic war plans.

Wet Lease Policy Guidance
It has long been contrary to Federal Aviation Regulations for an air carrier to ``wet lease'' an aircraft from an individual or entity that is not separately authorized to engage in common carriage. By this notice, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) seeks comment on proposed policy guidance identifying those commercial arrangements that would be considered to be unlawful wet lease arrangements under these regulations as well as those that would be permissible. Additionally, we seek comment on our proposed treatment of certain other commercial arrangements between air carriers and aircraft owners thatwhile not amounting to illegal wet leasescould nevertheless result in the air carrier impermissibly ceding operational control of flight to non-certificated entities.

Airworthiness Directives; Gippsland Aeronautics Pty. Ltd. Model GA8 Airplanes
The FAA is adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all Gippsland Aeronautics Pty. Ltd. (Gippsland) Model GA8 airplanes. This AD requires you to repetitively inspect the upper and lower grooves of the forward cargo door slide for cracks, excessive wear, and excessive width. This AD also requires you to replace the forward cargo door slide if any of the above conditions are found during any inspection. This AD results from mandatory continuing airworthiness information (MCAI) issued by the airworthiness authority for Australia. We are issuing this AD to prevent failure of the forward cargo door slide caused by cracks, excessive wear, or excessive width. This failure could result in the cargo door detaching from the airplane in flight, potentially causing damage by hitting the back end of the airplane.
