THE TAMPA TRIBUNE, Monday, August 18, 1958 Moon Rocket Explodes 77 Seconds After Firing (Continued from Page 1) be much better as the moon probe program progresses. "It was a major accomplishment just to get the missile off today in the specified time," Schriever said. Split second timing is required for a moon launching. Because of the complex celestial mechanics involved such as the moon's rotation around the earth the launching team was resrticted to only a 15-minute span within which to fire the rocket. It blazed straight up just four minutes after the planned zero hour of 7:14 A.M. (EST). A huge stream of yellow flame roared from the exhausts as it climbed steadily for about 40 seconds. Then, just after it veered toward the northeast, a cloud of white smoke appeared. Most of the 150 newsmen observing the shoot from about a mile away believed it to be the first stage burnout and ignition of the second stage. Even as it plummeted back to earth, the missile continued to relay telemetry signals. " The satellite, which weighed 83 pounds, carried special equipment to radio back pictures of the moon especially the unknown dark side which never faces the earth. It also would relay data on the impact of tiny meteorites and the magnetic fields of the earth and moon. f For more than two hours before It was fired, the missile stood exposed, its protective launching stand rolled off to one side, as the orderly preliminary check or countdown proceeded. It glistened In the warm morning sunlight, the Thor body white with encrusted frost and the slender upper part a graceful silver spear. " Plumes of white vapor from the liquid oxygen within drifted gently out of a vent halfway up the rocket's side. Frost accumulated on the icy exterior of the oxygen tank.

The time for launching had been fixed, many days in advance, at 7:14 A.M. (EST). At that particular time on this day, this spot on the earth was in the best position for a launched missile to get close to the moon. Johnson called the launching with only a four minute delay a "major accomplishments." He added the delay was due not to any malfunctioning of the rocket but to radiation interference from an unidentified source which threatened to distort the all-essential radio signals to and from the missile. If the missile had behaved as planned, the Thor first stage eight feet in diameter and weighing more than 100,000 pounds would have exhausted its fuel and dropped away two minutes and 37 seconds after launching. FTC Accused Of Ignoring False Toothpaste Ads WASHINGTON, Aug. 17. VP) A House committee said today the Federal Trade Commission has fallen down on the job of halting false advertising of toothpaste. The committee said the federal policing agency also has completely ignored the serious problem of deceptive advertising o f tranquilizer drugs. The government operations committee gave its views in twin reports based on hearings by a subcommittee headed by Hep. John A. Blat-nik (D. Minn.). The congressman said the FTC should ask toothpaste makers to submit scientific proof of their advertised claims, as the agency is now requiring of cigarette makers. They called on the FTC to initiate promptly conferences with industry aimed at drawing up fair advertising codes for toothpastes and tranquilizers.

(jp) There was a Cuban sandwich party here yesterday. But it was different. The 240 sandwiches were flown here on a commercial airliner from Tampa. Dale Conklin and Jack Sammon, former Tampa residents who now work for an ice cream firm here, thought up the idea. They drummed up interest among other employes and ordered the sandwiches flown from Tampa. When the fare arrived, everyone gathered around four banana boxes at the plant and had his fill. Some even plan to put their sandwiches in freezers for the future. The sandwiches, made of Cuban bread, contain such things as fresh pork, smoked ham, salami and cheese. "I used to think it was terrible when we'd drive 35 miles to get a sandwich," Mrs. Conklin said. "You know what this means? These boys are homesick.
