(AP)A five-stage rocket designed to probe atmospheric conditions which will be met by military ballistic missiles was fired here Wednesday, but'failed to get desired speed and altitude. The Army said the height reached by the 7,125-pound Strong- arm III was sufficient to produce data of value. Scientists handling the.launch- ing said they could not immediately say whether all five stages 6f the rocket fired, or give the exact altitude it reached. Th6 56^5-foot rocket was launched for the U. S. Army Ordnance Corps Ballistic Research Laboratories of Aberdeen Proving Grounds, Md., by'the National Aeronautic! and Space Administration. Its job was to measure upper atmosphere electron densities at altitudes at which the interconti- nenlal ballistic weapons and the Army's Nike-Zeus will operate. The rocket was designed to go up ],IOO miles, or slightly higher than that reached by Ihe first Strongarm sent aloft from here last Nov. 10. Strongarm II failed last Nov. 18, because of a malfunction In the firing circuit for th« third stage. Delia Praised For Respect Of Individualists The Rev. Rilcy Munday told Ihe East Greenville Kiwanis Wednesday that Ihe main reason he loved the Delta, and in particularly Greenville and Cleveland, was the fact that "individuality is preserved and the human spirit is respected" here. Rev. Munday, pastor of the Interstate Baptist Church nea Shaw, has been for the past thre years associated with Misceram ic Tile of Cleveland as personne manager and is now a public re I lions director for the Frankli Life Insurance Co. "Where but in the Delta coul you have a Hodding Carter, wit whom I can, and often do, dis agree, but love because he is no afraid to say what he believes lis heart?" Munday said. He cit ed Don Monroe, in charge of pub ic relations at Greenville Mills and C. L. "Slim" Landrum, man ager of the Greenville Cirambe of Commerce, as other example of individualism. Super - Sonic Skeet He did not restrict his observa ions about individualism to th Jelta. Purvis, Miss, the humor st said, was the snuff-dipping cen- er of the world ("double-dippin, iriginated there") and he told of a native son who was a maste of the "super-sonic skcet -- i its the spittoon before it leaves the mouth." His hero was talking with ar ild timer one day and said he wa; worried lest Soviet Premie Khrushchev get trigger happy and send "one of those hydrogen »mbs here and blow Purvis of he map." "Why should he aim it Purvis," the old timer want man, hav the coun W.C. Bufkin, Schoolman For 40 Years, Retires In Sharkey Co. ed to know. "Why en't you heard--this i y seat," was the reply. "Praise God for such individual sm," Munday said. He said he felt sorry for people who did not love their fellow man. ,"I never met a man i Greenville or Cleveland I didn 1 instantly like," he said. "I re cently talked to a group of funer al directors -- they are undertak ers with a college degree -- and I told them I loved them, too They have never let me down Munday was introduced by Bil Trotler. Also Membership Losses Methodist Jurisdiction Plan Comes Under Fire At Conclave LAKE JUNALUSKA, N.C.(UP1) --Methodist bishops from the Southeast called Wednesday for "return to the spirit and practice of early Methodism" to offset losses in church membership in recent years. In their Episcopal address to church's quadrennial Southeastern Jurisdictional Conference, the bishops also defended t h e church's controversial Jurisdictional system which has been criticized as being pro-segregation. The address, prepared jointly by the bishops of the jurisdiction, was delivered by Bishop Paul N. Garher of Richmond, Va. Discussing the problems facing the church, the bishops noted that 129,260 inactive members w e r e removed from church rolls by quarterly conference during the ffitmmmmm PURE GROUND first three years of the present quadrennium. They said th»t during the 1953-59 conference year "we actually wiped out from membership standpoint 100 congregations." They said that if pastors creased their care for · their church members there would be "no occasion for the wholesale dropping of 50 or 100 members at a single quarterly .conference as has happened so often in the past few years." A brief discussion of race relations was devoted largely to the question of the jurisdictionai- organization established when the nation's various Methodist groups united in 1939. Five jurisdictions were established on geographical lines with a iixth «t up for Negroes. In recent years there, have been demands for integration of the Negro jurisdiction with the other five. Tte bishops said that Negro members of the commission which set up the plan of union "declared that Ihe policy of separate congregations and annual conferences had been practiced in the Methodist Episcopal Church (the Northern group) for many years and that a separate Jurisdictional conference for Negroes was only a logical development thereof and did not imply any racial segregation which did not already exist in the Methodist Episcopal Church. "Many Negro Methodists favored a separate Jurisdictional conference because it gave opportunity for initiative and leadership not possible in a Jurisdictional ROLLINK FORK -- D i s t r i c t Superintendent o!
