The counter-weapon is a guided Air residential district, missile which is designed to explode In the middle of an attacking enemy formation. Army ordnance experts .ire keeping: mum on the weapon—which they say explodes with a highly destructive effect. Here's the way the Army hos Jt figured out. A guided.missile would explode with tremendous force in the center of a bomb formation, thus forcing the enemy to fly his planes alone, or at least in widely- dispersed formations. Then they'd be open to attack by fighter planes The chief of army ordnance— Major General Everett Hughes— doesn't disclose what kmd of explosive will be used in; the guided missile.

Another outspoken loan oppon- (enu—Republican Representative- Howard Buffet of Nebraska—has told hi? colleagues that many of them will commit political suicide if they vote for the Joan. Says Bul'fett: "The voters are really aroused over this issue," Some unexpected opposition to the loan has come from a group of House liberals. They apparently toavo turned sour because of recent developments in Palestine and elsewhere. But House leaders say Die defections aren't, serious enough to affect thc Hnal outcome. Both Democrats and Republicans say tin; o;in will be approvcd^—a! though the margin may be narrow. Test Vole On O1>A Coming The test vote on OPA probably won't come until tomorrow.
