TRIDAY, APRIL 8, 19H8 BLYTHEVTLLE (ARK.1 COURIER NEWS Arkansas News Briefs— Anti-Race Track League Can't Use Name; Must Find New One •By The Associated Press FORREEST CITY — A backer of the 61. Francis Valley Turf Association says the name "the Ami-Race Track League" cannot be used by a group opposing the building of a horse racing track in St. Francis County. The Turf association wants to build and operate the track. Robert J. Boileau said yesterday that if the opponent organization doesn't stop using the name he will resort to court action. Boileau explained that he and two other men have a legal right to use the name under a certificate filed March 6 at tne county clerks office here. Three Reform School Escapees Caught HARRISON — Three heavily armed escapees from the Arkansas Boys Industrial School were seized while hiding underneath a bluff near here yesterday. Sheriff Spence Holder identified them as Donald Archina], 16. Perryville; Billie Bowtien, IS, Tucker, and Jimmy Mullins, 14, of near Harrisburgh. Elam Turner, assistant superintendent of the Boys School, at Pine Bluff, said the trio escaped Wednesday night. Highway Commission Awards 10 Contracts LITTLE ROCK — The Arkansas Highway Commission yesterday afternoon awarded contracts for 10 road and bridge construction jobs on low bids totaling 52,860,762. An extra 10 per cent which !s added to all contract prices for engineering service will taring total cost to the state to around 3.1 million collars. Preliminary estimates had set the total at around 3.5 million dollars. Approval of New Airline Service Expected LITTLE ROCK — J. C. Murray, transportation consultant for the Little Rock Chamber of Commerce, thinks Central Airlines of Ft. Worth, Te.x. will be serving eight Arkansas cities within 30 days.

(Courier News Photo) Mid-Ship Section of A-Sub Slides Into Huge Sphere (Editor's note: This Is one of several stories by Elton C. Fay, Associated Press military affairs reporter, on one of the first visits by a newsman to the cross-country chain of laboratories and plants building the atomic-powered submarine.) By ELTON C. FAY SCHENECTADY, N. Y. (tf) Sometime during the next few months the midships section of a submarine containing a complete atomic propulsion system will slide into a fantastic steel sphere. The great steel ball will house the "submarine intermediate reactor" during its lest. There are other things about the project that are just as startling: 1. A metal becomes a free-flowing liquid. 2. A powerful pump has no moving parts. 3. Electronic watchdogs, alert for danger, are poised to shut off the atomic engine in a split-second if things go wrong. Working at two sites near here re the Atomic Energy Commission the Navy, the General Electric Company, the, Chicago Bridge and Iron Company. General Dynamics Corp.. and other contrac- ors and sub-contractors. They are assembling the nuclear engine and the elaborate test and safety system that goes with it. It is the first full-scale, powerful atomic reactor to be built close to two cities and several large vil- ages. This accounts for the steel sphere—250 feet in diameter—a device intended to confine any contaminated gases which might be generated in an accident. One of Two Types The atomic reactor is one of two ,ypes which will serve as patterns for sea-go ing versions to be installed in two submarines. It is called an "intermediate" •eactor because of the intermediate speed of neutrons produced in Is fission process—faster than the j neutrons of a thermal reactor be- MARINE BIRDMEN'S CHAPEL-While thousands of UN troops attended Easter services at makeshift frontline chapels, Marine airmen jammed this chapel near their Korean air Held to «mrKhin the risen Christ PERSONAL do a WHALE of a job!

BLYTHEVILLE COURIER NEWS ing built for the other submarine, slower than the ultra-fast neutrons released in certain laboratory experiments. At least in theory the intermediate reactor here may have some advatages: 1. Higher energy neutrons are not as readily absorbed by conventional metals used in the structure of the reactor or steam generating unit. 2. The liquid metal and unique no-moving-parts pump may save space and weight. Because the neutron energy of the intermediate reactor is reasonably high, more or less conventional metals can be used in the structure. The reactor is being fabricated at the Knolls Atomic Power Laboratory, on the outskirts of this city. When all materials are on hand, (hey will be taken to the West Milton test site, 18 miles to the north. It is there craftsmen are putting together the biggest metal ball ever made. When completed, there will be more than five miles of welding to hold the plates together. The steel arrives in curved plates, is welded into sections ranging up to | 36 by 32 feet and weighing about 50,000 pounds, and hoisted aloft by ! a crane which towers up from the center of the sphere. Will Support Own Weight The 3,850-ton ball will support its own weight, but 26 steel col- \ umns will steady it against the wind. At its base Is a section of a hull like that which will be the submarine Sea Wolf. The hull section has few unusual construction characteristics. From this "five room," heavily shielded to hold back dangerous radiation, will leave the pipeline to transfer the atomic-generated heat to the steam turbine system in the engine room aft. The heat transfer metal is sodium, a silvery substance which melts at a temperature a little below that of boiling water. To flow the heat-charged sodium through the pipe, *the designers have come up with the curious "electromagnetic pump." which uses electrical induction. Advantages of the pump include its flat, compact form which will meet the tight space requirements of a submarine. Because there are ho moving parts, it is easy to seal TV Jargon Explained NEW YORK One of television's newest terms, "UHF-TV," is the description of new channels now being taken over in the ultra high frequency area ranging from 470 to 800 megacycles. There Is room for 70 channels. The older TV zone, "VHF" or very high frequencies has 12 channels, extending intermittently from 54 to 216 megacycles. against leakage. The builders and testers consider the possibility of an accident during test quite remote. The $2.146,000 steel sphere in which the test will be conducted is considered insurance against the remote possibility. Reds Enlist \ 'Voluntary' Labor VIENNA M") — Romania Commu- I nist bosses have set up a system I of "voluntary" labor to make up I for the construction failures and ncelected promises of the Romanian Five-Year-Plan. The aim apparently Is to make the Romanians carry out — and pay for —• themselves the work of building public installations like schools and roads which the Communist planners have failed to achieve. The device is called "Self Imposition" and was rubber-stamped by a government decree in January. 1952. So far, it is restricted mainly to rural areas. for the COURIER NEWS in Osceola, call BILLY BEALL, 567-M SALE OF BULLS April 10, 1953 YAZOO CITY, MISS.
