lndep«nd«nKJfMi.Tel«gr«ni PARADE OF Engaging the tip-and-pour button on a miniature furnace, a U.S. Steel research technician casts an experimental 500-pound ingot. Goal: steel with tensile properties beyond 250,000 psi for tomorrow's missiles. Steel missiles point the way to space travel The time when man will be able to travel through outer space at four times the speed of sound comes closer with each successive missile launching. Aided by knowledge gained in the development of steels for missiles and supersonic planes, United States Steel scientists are working on "dream steels" to withstand attacks of heat, cold, vibration, chemicals and other enemies that will be encountered by "dream rockets" to come. The newest achievement is the experimental production of the world's widest thin-gauge sheets for outer skins. Through use of a sandwich rolling technique de- veloped and refined by U.S. Steel people, stainless and constructional alloy steel sheets up to ten feet wide have been produced on existing facilities. This material will be available years sooner than if new mills were needed. To the missile and aircraft industries in southern California, U.S. Steel's Consolidated Western Steel Division offers services ranging from design, development and planning to fabrication, assembly and pre-operational testing. Our new engineering building at Eastern Avenue and Slauson will make the aid of our scientific staff even more accessible to our friends and customers. · · - i ic rH uri Watch THE UNITED STATES STEEL HOUR on television, alternate Wednesdays, 9 P.
