(AP) — Ttw Air Force has created Itself * bundle of problems along with Its new guided missile, one of the "fnn- t«tic" new weapons mentioned ear- Uer by President Truman as being to tht American arsenal. Some of these problems are as complex as keeping an enemy from taking over guidance of the missiles. Game are as prosatc as forming per- •onnel organizations. la announcing yesterday (hat a flying, guided bomb called the "Matador" and designated as the "B-61 pilotless bomber," was In production, the Air Force hart nothing to say about the methods used for steering the clipped-wing mls- «lle to its targets aunlnst enemy troops or fortifications. However, official photographs showed antenna customarily u.sed for reception or transmission of radio or radar impulses which (1) show the control station the missiles' location in flight, and (21 actuate the guiding mechanism of the missile.

'. , National Chairman Helped Contact RFC WASHINGTON, Sept. U. W(— A diary-keeping witness told senators today that William M. Boyle, Jr., helped arrange an RFC loan for a St. Louis printing firm early in 1949 after three previous loan applications by the company had been turned tfown. John E. Toole, an official cf the American Uthofold Corporation, offered this sworn testimony today before a Senate subcommittee investigating charges that Boyle, Democratic national chairman, Influenced Reconstruction Finance Corporation loans. Boyle has denied that h« arrang- td loans for the St. 1 Louis printing firm although he said he did some "legal work" for it before he became Democratic national chairman. • Toole gave hfs testimony after the subcommittee released denials by Harley Hise and Walter U Dunham, former RTO directors, that they ever had been Influenced by Boyle to make any loans. Both directors said in closed-door testimony yesterday that the RFC did, however, get well-paying jobs on the boards of directors of some RTO borrowers for persons recommended by Boyle. rltory. Developers of the guided missile are known to have given great attention to methods which would foil an enemy attempt either to Jam the radio frequencies over which the guidance signals are sent, or to seize actual control of the missile by use. of greater power at the same frequencies. If this could be done, the enemy might either divert the missile from Its intended target or actually turn It around and head it bac£ to strike at the original launchers.

An Air Force spokesman told reporters the B-61 is a true guided missile. It is not, he emphasized, a concerted conventional plane made into a "drone" aircraft. — its pilot merely replaced by remote control. The B-61, he said, has no provision for a human occupant. The Air Force and the Navy have several hundred "drone" planes — converted fighters and light bombers — used experimentally and In training. Glossary Listed A glossary used by the Defense Department makes this distinction between a drone plane and a guided missile: "Drone — a remotely controlled aircraft." "Guided missile — an unmanned vehicle moving above the earth's surface, whose trajectory or /light path Is capable of being altered by a mechanism within the vehicle." There also is a substantial difference in speed. Virtually all the drones now in use ore planes of World, War n vintage, slow b y present day Jet standards. Guided missiles, whether the Jet- powered type of the B-61 or rocket-driven missiles, operate at speeds ranging above that of sound (761 mites an hour at sea level) up to more than 1,000 miles an hour. 1 case of the big, high-altitude experimental rockets, speeds higher than 3,500 miles an hour are reached.
