MOSCOW (AP) claimed today the - "Red Star Soviet Union has rocket warheads equivalent to ino-million tons of TNT, plus rockets that can "lift and deliver any warhead to any points on the plobc." The claims were made by the official military newspaper in an article that denounced Westerners who belittle Soviet rocket cap-, abilities. The article was written by Col. Gen. V. F. Tolubko and was published in connection with Soviet Artillery Day Sunday. Premier Khrushchev announced Oct. 17 in opening the 22nd Soviet Communist party congress that the Soviet Union has a 100-megaton nuclear bomb—equivalent to 100-million tons of TNT. passed at Edminslon's, Rom stedt's, Cheney's Farm Market and the A & P. The checks passed at the three grocery stores reportedly were for $20 each, Gilmore said, with the check at Edminston's being for $13.21. He added lhat the man also is wanted for impersonating an army officer. Another man wanted on a charge of passing at least one bogus check is in custody at Atchison, he said. The man, Steven Samuel Owen III, about 19, reportedly opened a checking account at the Kansas State Bank here Nov. 9, using the name Robert Oakson, then wrote five checks for $10 each, Gilmore explained. "The first check cleared." he explained. Those for $10 each at A & P, Wool worth, Scott's and the Pence Food Center did not clear. He is charged in County Court with drawing and passing a $10 insufficient funds check at the Pence Food Center. Don White, county attorney, said today lhat he expected to file the other charges as obtaining money under false pretenses. Agree With These Fast Conclusions? Highways Dangerous TOPEKA (AP) - Roads were open throughout Kansas today but the Highway Patrol warned that snow is making them slick in spots and potentially dangerous. Only the southeasl section of the state has completely clear high ways. Bridges are particularly apt to be, slick. The patrol gave this breakdown by divisions: Northeast: Snow falling, some slush and slick spots. North central: One to two inches on the ground from Minneapolis north and east. Some slick spots, mostly on bridges, which are being treated; some fog in Mankato area. West and northwest: One to three inches of snow, all roads slick. Southeasl: No precipitation, roads normal. South central: Snow falling in the Hutchinson, Great Bend and Wichita areas; fog near Great Bend. Southwesl: Four inches of snow along the western border and down to one inch in the eastern part of the division; light snow falling from Garden City east; all highways open but slick.

Would "Bug" Ocean Floor WASHINGTON (AP) - A proposal to bug the ocean floor with thousands of underwater microphones to warn against submarine intruders is under consideration by the Navy. The underwater alarm system SOO to 1,000 miles offshore, would be forbidingly expensive. A less expensive technique of underwater surveillance also was under discussion this week at a secret Navy meeting on underwater sonar techniques. This system, using the still secret towflex technique, would involve towing the sounding device, called a hy- drophone, from a blimp, helicop- i ler or surface ship. Bv putting distance between the underwater microphone and the towing craft the craft's own noise would be less likely to interfere with the detection device. The three-day conference of the Office of Naval Research at White Oak, Md., was so hush-hush, one participant said, that even the midmeeting cocktail party was classified and the bartenders had to be cleared for security. / The bugging technique would involve planting perhaps as many as 9,000 hydrophones, called bottom-mounted transducers, beyond the Continental Shelf in the Atlantic. The system later could be installed also in the Pacific. Bugging the ocean bottom at depths as great as 15,000 or 17,000 feet would require development of hydrophones capable of withstand- On The Business Side Error The Only Thing One Sees? By DON SHIPMAN As typographical errors have been brought to our attention frequently by readers of this column, we feel these readers and others might enjoy the following: THE TYPOGRAPHIC ERROR The typograhphic error is a slippery thing and sly; You can hunt until you're dizzy, but somehow it gets by. Till the forms are off the press it's strange how still it keeps, It shrinks into a corner and stirs never peeps. or Shipma* The typographic error is loo small for human eyes. Tiii the ink is on the napcr. when it grows to mountain size. The boss, he stares with horror, then tears his hair and groans; The sad sack who okayed the proofs just drops his head and moans. For all the other printing may be as clean as clean can be, But that typoghaphic error is the ONLY thing you can see! In a survey conducted by the Bureau of Advertising, the majority of merchants throughout the country, 79.1 per cent, will kick off their Christmas promotion prior to, or on, Thanksgiving Day. Only 17.3 per cent will wait until December to launch their Minuteman Test Planned CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. (AP) —An accelerated Minuteman test- firing program is on tap following the first successful launching of the missile from an underground silo. The 58-foot rocket, a weapon geared for the split-second demands of pushbutton war, darted from the 90-foot-deep pit Friday and raced 3,000 miles downrange. By HAL BOYLE NEW YORK (AP)-Jumping to conclusions, and how many do you agree with? Most books on how to achieve success are written by people you never heard of before. A woman will believe any man who flatters her beauty, but always doubts a man who praises her choice of hats. If science ever perfects pushbutton weather control, the guy who pushes the button will be the man in America, isn't any kind of most hated There just weather that pleases everybody. Any goal in life is still possible for a teen-ager who studies in a home that'has neither TV set nor telephone. We might never have heard of Abraham Lincoln if he had been born after Alexander Graham Bell. YES, HERALD WANT ADS are bargains.

Phone CH 2-4700 The only admirable trait I know of in heavy gamblers is that, unlike the occasional bettor, they rarely complain publicly about their losses. It seems to be part of their unwritten code to take the blows of chance in silence. A poor man always pays his grocery bill first; a man living ostentatiously beyond his means generally pays his grocer last—if he ever does. The surest way to lose a girl you are courting is to send her fresh flowers every day. The surest way to keep from boring her is to borrow money from her. No woman can ever lose interest in a man who owes her money. It takes more real courage to learn to eat raw oysters than it does to rob a bank. On the surface we like the companionship of those who share our vices, a comradeship often born of necessity. Deep within us, however, we despise them for being as weak as we are. A boss may be telling the truth when he says he doesn't want to be surrounded by "yes men"—but he does want to be partly surrounded by them. There is nothing lonelier or more frightening than to be in power without someone around to assure you that you are wise. Many of us take pride in keeping up with what is going on in Ihe world. But not one man in five over 40 years of age can name three new popular tunes written this year. Most can't even name one. It takes more than honesty for grownup person to keep a completely truthful diary of what he does and thinks. He has to be pretty foolhardy, too. The poorest investor in the world is a man who deliberately seeks happiness by marrying a wealthy woman. I For some reason, a left-handed girl holds a mysterious fascination for a right-handed man. He thinks she may be different from other girls. She isn't. Churchgoers who read astrology books and also carry a rabbit's foot for good luck are merely trying to play both ends against the midle. Optimism never dies. Even in such a cynical age as ours there axe still people who believe the pictures they see in seed catalogues. Deaths ing great pressures. Some of the experts at the meeting said they were not sure thai the plan was feasible. Local Markets Soybeans $2.20 1.83 1.65 .90 1.12 1.07 AARON M. SMITH Aaron M.

About 16 per cent surveyed plan to start their promotion earlier than a year ago. The fact that sales and profits have been down the past year, and customer resistance in some areas has to be met headon is the reason for earlier-than-usual promotion plans. television and radio sales and service.

Kh rush Kin In New York NEW YORK (AP) - Soviet Premier Khrushchev's son-in-law is in this country to do a series of stories on political and economic matters in America. Alexei Azhubai, who also is chief editor of Izvestia, a government-owned newspaper, arrived Friday night from Moscow. He said he would work in New York and Washington. more non-food items are being added to grocery shelves, and to customers' shopping carts. A recent study by the Agricultural Experiment Station at. Purdue University, shows nearly 80 per cent of the shoppers in food stores put at least one non-food item in their baskets while 6 per cent have nothing else. In one midwest area where the survey was made, an average of $4.59 is spent for a "basket of groceries," which includes two non-food and 10 food items. Tobacco products lead the list of non-food items in dollar value; soaps and detergents, health and beauty aids come next, followed by "household care" items and paper products (napkins, tissues, paper plates, etc.). If a man shops alone, one out of every five items he puts into his cart will be nonfood. Women shoppers buy only 17 per cent non-food items. In the stores studied, a man shopping alone spent an average of $3.09; his wife, also alone, bought $4.21 worth of groceries. Together they averaged $8.77 and if they brought the children along, the bill ran to $11.47, Supermarkets that make it attractive for families to shop together will reap the benefits.
