MONDAY, APRIL 9, 1956 BLTTHEVTLLB (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE FIVE Air Delivery Speeding 'Dew/me' Radar System By ELTON AP Military C. FAY Reporter Man Suffers Stroke Enroute to Report Accident, Lays Exposed Two Nights AT AN ARCTIC RADAR SITE (AP) — Ninety tons of airplane and cargo ease down to Js efx ;f^ te ? h j 0 J^ cn ° f ^ r ' the ice runway of a lake, 1,000 miles from civilization. Another load of freight is delivered in the race to build the Distant Early Warning Line, called the "Dewline." By military and commercial aircraft, by ship, by tractor-drawn sled trains, close to 200,000 tons of material has been toied in the last year to build the warning line along the 3,000 miles at the top of die American continent. When Dewline is ready, perhaps as much as two years from now, it may provide a plane-proof electronic sentry system standing watch for air invaders. The eastern end of Dewline will be on Baffin Island, i across from Greenland. The western end is at Cape Lis- burne, Alaska, about 200 miles southwest of Point Barrow, The cape is only about 200 miles from an eastern lip of Siberia, only 100 miles Civm the internaitonal boundary \vhich extends out into the Arctic Ocean from Bering Strait- Newsmen who traveled the 3,000 mile stretch of Dewline asked if it would be possible for an aggressor to jam the system with electronic equipment. "Jamming" a Problem Maj. Gen. James E. Briggs, a deputy chief of staff of the U. S. Air Force which is building the line, says "there is no electronic emanation put out in space which can't be jammed." He says everything possible is being done to prevent jamming. There were those who wondered it Dewline, equipped now to detect manned planes, such as jet bombers, could cope with ballistic missiles fired over the polar area. Briggs' reply was that "when ballistic missiles become an immediate threat, we'll have to design to meet them." . The C124 Globemasters are probably the most impressive cargo carriers of the whole fantastic transportation system. Globemas- ters of the 18th Air Force, assigned the job of hauling heavy equipment, have accumulated thousands of flying hours shuttling between the United States and Dewline. Cold Helps The arctic cold is both a hindrance and help. It imposes almost intolerable pressures on crews who must maintain and operate aircraft. But it also congeals lake surfaces to ice more than five feet thick and blankets barrens with snow which can be compacted into airstrips. Burma Road and the Great Wall of China were comparatively easy to build. The materials were at hand. The builders of Dewline must bring a vast variety of equipment from points thousands- several days, of miles distant. "Something' made her decide to What the Western Electric Co. its STANDING UP TO LIFE—Seventeen-year-old Sheila Price had to make a decision. Due to abnormally formed hip sockets from birth, an operation to immobilize her hip sockets was necessary. For the rest of her li/e she would remain either in a sitting or standing position but not both. Sheila chose to stand. Scores of friends in Berne, Ind., are waiting to learn if the operation is a success. They raised her $500 medical expenses in a whirlwind two-week campaign, selling candy and washing cars. Above, in St. Vincent's Hospital, she holds a gift from her high school chums. Distraught Mother Is Held In Death of 4-Year-Old Girl LOS ANGELES I?) — A suitcase lying amid shrubs, geraniums and weeds on a vacant lot was the resting: place for the body of 4- year-old Susan Shaw. Detectives were led to the spot yesterday by the child's distraught mother, Mrs. Jean Elizabeth Shaw, 35, formerly of Clinton, Iowa, who previously had told in Aportment House Fire Kills Nine coherently about how her I poisoned her gassed can't talk about it, it's too hor- Mi's. Shaw is held in the psychopathic ward of General Hospital on a technical booking of suspicion of murder. Her sorrowing, divorced husband. Prentice W. Shaw. 42, Clinton attorney who flew here Saturday, probably will learn from nn autopsy today what killed his daughter. Coroner's attendants said the little girl had been dead and its subcontractors need for this Dewline job is enormous in quantity and variety — huge bulldozers, tons of steel and cement, prefabricated buildings, wire and cable by the hundreds oi" miles, food to feed thousands of hungry workmen. The transportation item will figure heavily in whatever Dewline finally costs—perhaps ti billion dollars or more. The greater percentage of the winter shipment now moves by contract commercial aircraft. $1 Billion or More In the commercial airlift have been 81 U.S. and Canadian planes. Day and night, they come winging in from the south, leave their loads, head back home for more. Aircraft wrecks add to the transportation cost. The commercial carriers have lost 18 planes and two lives. Mai. Gen. Chester McCavty, commander of the 18th Air Force, reports that of the 106 aircraft his outfit has used in the airlift three have been in accidents. One was minor; another crash landed but many of its parts were salvageable; the third was a total loss. No lives were lost. I tell us." said Det. Sgt. Harry Hansen. He said he took her to the vacant lot only a short distance from the apartment where she had been living with Susan and another daughter, Pamela. 11. It was Pamela who last Wednesday told officials that something was wrong, that her mother had said her sister was dead. A search began. Shaw was hastily came here. notified and Doctor Travels For Education LOS ANGELES in — Tired of commuting? So is Dr. Caleb Davidian, 48, a dentist from Placerl ville, Calif. He drives 860 miles roundtrip j each week from his home to the University of Southern California where he is taking a postgraduate course in orthodontics. He leaves sphool Friday night, spends a day and a half with his family and then hits the road again. So far he has worn out one car. He estimates that when the 1G- month course ends in June he will h.,ve traveled the equivalent of three times around the world. CHICAGO UPt—A fire in a crowded four-story apartment building on Chicago's South Side early yesterday killed nine persons and injured eight others. Two of the dead were killed when they leaped from upper floors to escape the flames. Two children were killed in the fire, but several others were saved when their mothers dropped them to spectators.

Petcrsen estimated damage at $60,000. Sgt. Drew Bvo\vn, head of the po- j lice arson squad, ruled out incen-' diarism.
