THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 6, 19S1 BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS Air Force Lets Contract ^^ \ For Atomic Plane Frame WASHINGTON, Sept. «. OTJ — The Air Force announced yesterday it has contracted for the frame of an airplane to 'carry the first air- bcrne atomic engine. Implicit in the terse statement was an indication that research phas progressed to the point where a plane can be built with a range probably limited only by human endurance and speeds that can only be guessed at. Only about two weeks ago the Navy made a similar momentous announcement. It said it had let a contract for the hull of the first nuclear powered submarine- The Air Force contract with the Consolidate Vultee Corporation gives that company primary responsibility for what engineers call an airframe—trie shell of a plane without engines or instruments. The Air Force already has a contract with the General Electric Company — announced last Febru- ary—lor development of an atomic engine for aircraft. And the Atomic Energy Commission said in March it had awarded a contract to Q.E. for "associated propulsion devices." Speculation Is Little There was little public speculation in official sources about how won an .atomic-powered plane might be perfected. The best guess was that it would be somewhat longer than the two to v three years which oflicials have estimated may be required to complete a nuclear powered , submarine. '• ••' Power 'plants lor both have their heart in an atomic reactor — massive device which permits the slow, controlled release of atomic energy In the form of heat and radiation. ThU heat probably would be con- rerted into propulsive power for a plane by gas or mercury vapor turbines. Some turbine engines also use the super-heated gas as a jet after it has passed through the turbine, to give the engine additional forward thrust. Heal H Tremendous The heat produced by a small quantity of uranium-235 is tremendous. Scientists have estimated that a pound of uranium-235 would provide the same energy as 6.000.000 gallons of gasoline. But this great heat and its ac- ccmpanying radiation provide what is believed to be the biggest obstacle to an atomic-powered airplane. The big problem is to provide adequate shielding from the. deadly radiation for crew members. Lead Is the best know shield against radiation, and a plane weighted down with too much lead would sacrifice the speed and altitude advantages to be gained through atomic power. "SHOCKER" - Haisej W.

Sept. 8. (/P)— The Philadelphia Inquirer repprted today that William Stttton, known as, "Slick Willie," died of wounds inflicted in a holdup. Philadelphia underworld, the newspaper said, buzzes with the report of Button's death. The Federal Bureau of Investigation long has sought the 51- year-old Sutton. whose carefully planned bank robberies and Jailbreaks made him notorious. Arthur J. Cornelius, special FBI sgent in charge of the Philadelphia office, had only this comment on the Inquirer story: "Button still is one of the FBI's most hunted men." Police officials said they had received no reports that Sutton had been slain. The Inquirer quoted underworld reports as saying Button was shot In a holdup, that confederates got him back to an old hideout in the nearby Chester area where he died three days_later, and that his body then was'crudely buried in a hole. No dates were given. the public platform tonight, at > time when the Japanese Peace Treaty Conference ii in full swing in San Francisco. Although the general gave no Indication of hLs subject matter for tonight, there was sepculatlon that the speech would contain references to the Japanese and the fir Pa- cltic. Before President Truman stripped him of hus commands in the Far East on charges of falling to follow orders, the 71-year-old general headed not only the Allied [orces In Korea, but the occupation of Japan as well. He was not Invited to the conference in San Francisco. But in opening the conference Tuesday night, the President referred to the "outstanding leadership of General Douglas MacArthur and his succes sor General Matthew Rldgway." In his latest major address Jn Boston six weeks ago. MacArthur lashed out vigorously at both the foreign nnd domestic policies of the administration. The result of the war In Korea, he said, has been indecisive, and as for American foreign policy, "the sorry truth Is that we have no policy." He was equally critical of government spending and financial aid to foreign nations. ng the month of August, 1S51 the ollowing account* of Executors »nd Administrators have been filed (or ettlement and confirmation In the Probate Court for the Chickasaw- b* District of Mis«i»stppi County, Arkansas and that such accounts with their respective filing dates are IB follows: No. 1990 B.
