MONDAY, NOVEMBER 24, 1347 BLYTHEVTI.LR (ARK.) COURIER NKW3 Atomic Airplane Engine Foreseen Air Force Officrs Confident Power Unit, Can Be Developed IIV WIM.IAM K, Mc.MKNAMIN (I'tilled 1' Slaff Correspondent) WASHINGTON Nov. 24 (DPI — Air Force officers said today they are confident that research ultl- )! |jkYly will result in the developc- i^il of an atomic engine for nir- cr.itl. Less than a year after atomic bombs were dropped on Japan, the Air Force set up n project in conjunction with I he atomic development, authorities to explore this possibility. Research timing the last year has convinced the Air Force experts I hat such a nuclear-powered aircraft Is not beyond altainment. They say drat many problems remain to be solved that will require possibly years of hard work. A nuclear engine would open new -fields of performance and n.ugc for aircraft never before thought possible. It would free American air- power of the limits of present-day fuels. University of Chicago .scientists suggested one approach to the problem recently when they said that by-products from "atomic furnaces"! might provide a fuel more free from deadly radiation than the alom pile itself. Such nuclear fuel might do crery- thiiiR coal, oil or electricity docs at a fraction ol the cost. And it would do^nuay with the walls ol concrete" ff £f-nA several feet (hick which nKist now surround an atomic pile to protect it,s operators from death from radiation. The fission products from the "atomic furnace." according to the scientists, contain some substances that let off strong radiations and others tllat are less dangerous, by separating the mild-radiation materials Jroiii the other, it might be possible to get a harmless, hlcli- cnci'By Jnel. they believe. The Air Force annonncd last year that it. has let a contract lo Fairchild Engine and Airplane Corp. of New York to work on atomic power lor airplanes. The Navy disclosed last week that it is at work on a program to provide protection against atomic radiation. A light-weight shield against atomic rays might solve the problem of using atomic energy for propulsion power in a plane, ship or any other transportation. The armed forces special weapons project has established a base at Sandia, near Albuquerque, N. Mex.. : to work on atomic weapons. The special weapons project is headed by Lt. CSen. Leslie R. Groves, war-, time commander of the atom bonibi project. | This group is assigned responsl- , bility Jor developing atomic weapons I of all types and working out nieas- ! llrc.s to protect people against ra- ' dlatlon dangers.

Nov. 2^ (UP> — Elizabeth nnd Prince Philip will leave their honevrnoon retreat on Broadlands Estate, after one week and go lo Scotland. It was reported Saturday. They originally were expected to stvnd two weeks here and two weeks at IMrkhall, near the Royal Castle at, Balmoral. Scotland. But they now plan to .spend three weeks at Birkhall. The little town of Romscy bu?./.- ed wilh approving talk abom the speedy jeepridc Elizahclh and Philip took across the G,000-acre estate and u]) a busy highway. Neither th e |>oliceme.n guarding the gates of the estate nor the townspeople expected to see their future queen and her new husband in such an unroyal vehicle. A.s a matter of fact, few of the townspeople did see Ihem. but the news spread fast and it delighted them. While Elizabeth and Philip svcre strolling about, they came upon the jeep. It was one Hint Philip's un- j cle.

She was at first reluctant, possibly because of his reputation as a fast driver, but was soon persuaded. They roared around the i estate and up lo the Bales. The police guard gasped, saluted . belatedly and .swung the gates ' open. E J hilip drove for half-a-im!e down the busy highway and came ,back. The entire ride lasted about an hour.
