THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 6, 1931 BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS Air Force Lets Contract \ For Atomic Plane Frame WASHINGTON, Sept. 6. Wj — 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 Wrse statement -was an indication that research khas progre-ssed 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 Consolidated Vultee Corporation gives that company primary responsibility lor what engineers ca'll an alrframe—the shell of a plane without engines or instruments. The Air Force already has a contract with the General Electric Company—announced last February—for development of an atomic engine for aircraft. And the Atomic Energy Commission said In March it had awarded a contract to G,E, for "associated propulsion devices." Speculation Is Little There was little public speculation in official sources about how soon an .atomic-powered plane might be perfected. The be,st guess was that it would be somewhat longer than the two to s three years which oilicials have estimated may be required lo complete a nuclear powered .submarine. Fewer plants for both have Iheir heart in an atomic reactor — a massive device which permits the slow, controlled release of atomic energy in the form of heat and radiation. This heat probably would be converted 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. Heat Is 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 accompanying radiation provide what is believed lo be the biggest obstacle to an atomic-powered airplane. The big problem is to provide adequate shielding from the. deadly radiation for crew members. kead Is the best know shield against radiation, and a plane weighted down with too much lead would sacrifice the speed and altitude advantages' lo be gained through atomic power. Prisoner Flees Pulaski County iI, Is Captured in 8 Hours LITTLE ROCK. Sept. t. (AP) — A federal prisoner escaped from the Pulaski County jail here yesterday afternoon.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation lonp has sought the ftl- year-old Sutlon, whose carefully pmnned bank robberies and Jailbreaks made him notorious. Arthur J. Cornelius, special FBI agent in charge of the Philadelphia office, had only Ihis 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 Sut ton had been slain.
