Rick- over, director of nuclear propulsion for the Navy, said today it was impossible for the nuclear plant of ill-fated submarine Thresher to explode. Rickover told a naval court of inquiry: "Nuclear reactors in submarines and surface ships are designed to minimize hazards under any conditions." He added: "It is physically impossible for nuclear plants on ships to explode like a bomb." Rickover testified that "in event of a serious accident fuel elements will remain intact and none would be released." ' I v ' · .Submarines' nuclear reactor plants are Designed further to forestall any melting or rupture of the fuel element systems, Rickover said. Rickover, known as the father of the atomic submarine, also testified that at the 8,400- foot d e p t h at which the Thresher is believed to lie 220 miles off the Massachusetts coast, the sea water served to cool the fuel system and "provides further s a f e g u a r d s against melting." The Thresher, first of a new glass of nuclear powered attack submarines sank April 10 with 129 aboard. Rickover said no atomic radiation has been, released by the Thresher.'Samples taken from the ocean bottom at the site of the Thresher's last known position show "absolutely no evidence of radioactivity up to yesterday afternoon and none is expected," he said.

LEVY'S BASEMENT STORE--DOWNTOWN ONLY PARIS--C¥)--Defense Minister Pierre Messmer=reported today that France expects to have its own hydrogen bombs, atomic - powered submarines and Polaris-type missiles by 1970. Writing in the National Defense Review (Revue de Defense Nationale), Messmer outlined the French defense policy for the coming years. He said that French missiles with a range of 1,875 miles will start coming off sroduction lines in the 196870 period and that the hydrogen bomb would be ready about the same time. He noted that the Pierrelatte :omplex in southern France would start producing high- ?rade, enriched uranium early in 1967. Messmer wrote that the nuclear submarine had been sicked as the launching platform for these missiles. The :irst atomic submarine is ex- aected to become operational n 1969, and three others will :ollow. Each will be equipped o carry 16 missiles. Until the missile-carrying submarines are ready, France will depend on Mystere IV jet aircraft as the delivery sys- em for its atomic weapons Messmer said the French bombs available now have France Sees Full Nuclear Power Status By Year 1970 three times the ppwer of the device dropped on Hiroshima. The first of the Mystere IV planes, which fly at twice the speed of sound, will be operational at the end of 1963 and the full order of 50 will be put in service before the end of 1966. The Mystere IV has a range of 1,560 miles and can be increased to 3,000 miles through refueling in flight. France has ordered KC135 tanker planes from the United States for refueling. Messmer-declared that target for French thermonuclear weapons could only be cities --rather than the purely military objectives which the Highway Department To Cut Student Hiring PHOENIX--UP)--The legislature's bite off the State Highway Department budget will be felt by Arizona college and high school students. Highway Director Justin Herman Says he'll have to reduce the summer force by at least 50 per cent. He says the department hired about 100 students last summer for road maintenance, construction and other jobs. United States is concentrating on as targets. He said that because of'the gravity of the eventual decision to use the bombs, only the president of the republic would be empowered to give the go-ahead. At the present time,.Messmer. said, the French atomic force is taking only 13. per cent of the military budget which runs to 18.5 billion francs ($3,7 billion) in 1963. By 1970, French military expenses will run to half of the nation's budget, and about half of the military's share will be devoted to the thermonuclear forces. . While the atomic force is being built, the conventional land, sea and air forces will diminish, Messmer wrote. By 1970, France expects to have 150,000 ground troops, 3,000 armored transport vehicles, 20,000 trucks and cars, and 350 helicopters available for intervention within or outside Europe. By 1967, French internal defense forces will number about 50,000 men with 10 squadrons of aircraft. Messmer said the present French force in Germany--two army divisions and a tac tical air corps--at the disposal of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization will not be increased. 3330 EAST SPEEDWAY GIANT SUN., MON., TUES., WED.

"She and her daughter, rene, actually had to take :o their heels and they finally took refuge in the home of a :omplete stranger," this informant said, "The incident took place on April 20 as the queen and ler daughter were leaving their L o n d o n h o t e l (Claridges)." Queen Frederika and Princess Irene came to'Britain to attend, with other European royalty, the wedding of Princess Alexandra and Angus Ogilvy last Wednesday. They plan to l e a v e for Athens tomorrow. THE INFORMANT said the chase and other developments here may have endangered the projected state visit of King Paul and Queen Frederika to Britain .in July. Scotland Yard, citing security reasons, refused comment. F o r e i g n Secretary Lord Home last weekend expressed his distress and offered apologies for two other incidents d u r i n g Queen Frederika's stay in Britain. He did not mention the April 20 chase. The foreign secretary's letter referred to: --An incident in which a 16-year-old youth held out two posters to the queen as she was leaving her hotel. The posters concerned political prisoners in Greece. --A woman demonstrator, who had been trying to see the queen to urge the releasa of her husband in Greece. She was British-born Mrs. Betty Ambatielos, wife of a former Greek trades union leader imprisoned for life 16 years ago for helping Greek Communist opponents of the Greek monarchy SEVERAL LABORITE members of the House of Commons said they planned to ask Prime Minister Macmillan's Conservative government why Lord Home apologized. They said no apology is needed for political freedoms' in Britain. Referring to the manhandling of the queen, the informant said: "A woman had been standing in the lobby of her majesty's hotel for several hours. When her majesty came down from her room the woman tried to talk to her. "The queen and her daughter did not stop, but left by a side entrance. It was on a side street. A woman grabbed the queen by her shoulders and spun her around." "The queen, with the help of a srecurity guard, got away. Then a group of men who had been demonstrating in front of the hotel came after her. The security officer and the queen's chauffeur tangled with them. "WHILE THE SCUFFLE was going on, the queen and the princess--by now thoroughly frightened -- rushed into a nearby Mews, a cul de sac, but they didn't know this. But after a few steps they saw they were trapped. "The queen then rushed to a doorway and pushed two front door bells, the first ones she saw. The resident of one of these places, an American named Mrs. Stevens, threw open her door. "The woman was in her dressing gown, but she quickly admitted the queen and her daughter. The woman couldn't have been nicer. She let them take refuge there until some time later they slipped put by car and went to the home of a Greek friend." 1501 E. Broadway MA 2-8821 ABBEY RENTS
