Go Fly A Balloon LOUISVILLE, Ky. (API — The the first Polaris submarine arrived here in March, 1901. Others have brought (heir families over from Ihe States. Still one scarcely notices that Ihe Americans are here at all, so well have they become integrated with the local population. The only reminders of the American presence are the nuclear- radio set. The radios have an powered submarines lhat glide in and out of the Firth of Clyde, their black rudders cutting the water like the fins ot huge Locli Ness - type monsters.

(Polaris A-3 now being test ed at Cape Canaveral, will ex tend this range lo 2,500 nautica miles.') Submarines spend two montlv i deterrent palrol, then one month in the depot here. Eacl submarine has two crews, knowr as Blue and Gold, ol about 130 mcn and'officers, each. The cre.vs alternate, one taking leave and •cfrcsher training while Ihc oilier is on palrol. The arrivial of the submarine iquadron was viewed with some nisgivings here because '.heir presence made Holy Loch a prime .arget. But these mis-givings have since been dissipated. "In a population of 9,000 there arc perhaps five people who arc actively opposed to the submarines being based here." says J. iV. Anderson, the town clerk. Helping to melt Ihc opposition liave been the off - duly livilics of the U. S. bluejackets. The engine room gang of Hie Proleus, for example, recently went shopping for pink bnllct slippers. Six pairs went as gifls lo local orphanage, for girls who would have been unable to take dancing lessons without them. And (he 140 men attached to Ihc floating drydock here have 'adopted" homeless Anne Burns jf Grcenock. They chip in $128 i month for a trust fund to buy Anne clothes and pay for her iducalion. The 1.250 officers and enlisted men stationed here appear to ue :iand - picked group. And before leaving the U. S., they and their dependents were given a throu.. orientation on what lo expect aiu how to behave. Wives trying to make up their minds whether to join their husbands at Holy Loch are urged to ask themselves oucli questions as: "How could I help my husband by going with him to Scol- landV" "Could I adapt myself lo a way of life which would require additional time for such things as keeping fires, washing am: drying clothes, having ten with neighbors?" "Could f accept a house without central healing and some ol Jic other conveniences of life?" Typical "do's and Don't' which the submariners and their families arc asked to observe include: "Do not refer to persons from Scotland as 'Scotch.' They are 'Scots.' "Though Ihe kilt may look like a skirt to you, don't say You will find lhat the kilt-clad soldier is usually a he-man and resents (his forcibly.

The New Math Adds Up To Sum Fun W A S III N G T 0 N (UPtl—As many parents have discovered to t h e i r embarrassment, schools aren't' leaching malhemalics the way they used to do.
