Guided Missile Program Approaches Nuclear Size By DOUGLAS LARSEN :i . •-• NBA Staff Correspondent > • WASHINGTON — (NEA) — TJnelb Sam's guided missile program, which has been made a political'.football on grounds that it is inadequate, is now close to the size of America's whole nuclear energy program. President Eisenhower's latest budget requests 1.5 billion dollars for missiles and 1.9 billion for nuclear energy projects for. the year beginning July 1. It's likely that his next budget Vjill see missiles overtaking atoms is an expense for U. S. taxpayers. It is estimated that more than 65,000 military personnel and civilians on the U. S. payroll work on guided missile developments. This does not include civilians working in plants on the construction of the 1.27 billion dollars worth of mis- Biles which the services will buy. • • » • The Pentagon reveals it will also •pend 224 million dollars on missile research and development during the coming year. Tllat* includes extensive work by hundreds of universities and private firms. The size of the missile program - in the face of criticism that it is too small — prompts Defense Secretary Charles Wilson to say, "I don't think, the people, of the country generally appreciate the work that Is being done and the investment that has been made in missile development." Wilson has just seen the Army's Redstone Arsenal in Huntsville, Ala., where the 200-mile range Redstone missile has been developed and where work is being rushed on development of the Intermediate Range Ballistic missile with a 1,500-mile range. Close to 8,000 military and civilian missile experts work at Bedstone. More people will be sent there son to speed the IEBM project. . ' * * * Before seeing Redstone, Wilson GETMORt- SAVSMORt!

Main Phont 3-4507 Historic Highway Marker Missing-So Is the Highway By NORMAN BELL SAN DIEGO, Calif. W> — The Pacific end marker of the Jefferson Davis Highway turned up missing yesterday. Then, the highway itself couldn't be found. Allen Perry, city superintendent of parks, was. notified by the Daughters of the Confederacy that a bronze plaque was missing from its granite base in the city plaza. It was placed there May 12, 1926, to mark the "first Pacific terminal of the Jefferson Davis Highway." And how about the highway itself? ( "Don't ask me," said Perry. ' The police thought vandals may have taken the plaque but could hardly have carried off a highway. The California State Highway Division searched records here but failed to find anything bearing on Jefferson Davis Highway. At the San .Diego Historical Society, the placing of the plaque was recalled. The society also recalled that there had been some controversy over highway routes and names and that another monument had been placed in the plaza the same year. It is still there and inscriptions I chiseled into the granite say it was "dedicated by our beloved President, Calvin Coolidge, Nov. 17, 1926." as a "milestone of the Old Spanish Trail from St. Augustine, Fla., to San Diego. Calif." There is a plaque on the back, of the monument from which the Jefferson Davis marker is missing which reads: "May 12, 1926, Dixie Overland Highway Association — Savannah, Ga., to San Diego, Calif." The plaza information booth, maintained to help visitors, knew nothing about the Jefferson Davis, Dixie or Spanish Trail highways. It advised taking U. S. Highway 80 to Texas and East. "That'll get you there," the man said. Pet Lion Muffs Last Chance To Stay in City LOS AKGELES Wi—Because of his weakness for pretty secretaries, Kmj—a 5 month old African lion— nas been ordered to leave to\vn. Down at city hall Tuesday, King had his chance but he bit it—or, rather, her—Miss Sylvia Thorne, an Animal Regulation Dept. em- ploye. King's owner, John Shinners, 25, walked in with the 56-pound cub.on a leash to show Animal Commissioner Richard Bbnner that his pet ••will grow lip to be a typical, gentle movie Hon." Jumping on the desk. King gave the commissioner a friendly lick and was doing famous when Miss Thorne walked by. He took a nip of the attractive brunette's calf, and Bonner immediately upheld an earlier ruling that the lion must leave the city within 15 days. Miss 1 Thorne was treated for a minor leg abrasion.
