Vol. CXXXV 128 Single Copy—to AUSTIN, MINN., SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 29,1958 Member Associated Press U. S. Gets Big Boost From Nixon LONDON (AP)—Vire President Richard Nixon appeared today to have given a reinvigorating shot in the arm to British-American relations by his four-day visit here. With Nixon and his party en route home, the Conservative Daily Telegram today summed up the visit this way: "The vice president of the United States has proved himself a frank and engaging character. He has had much to tell us about his own country. He has had even more—and that of a consistently appreciative nature—to say about Britain. "Mr. Nixon has, in passing by, done a good deal to cement the Anglo-American alliance. In fact, Mr. Nixon has done us good. He has treated us as friends and partners, entitled to understand the difficulties experienced by the United States as well as to realize NIXON (Continued on Page 2) 16 Pages BUSINESS DEAL AT BANK —Eight-year-old Billy Juster, Los Angeles, in need of funds for Christmas shopping, makes his successful application for a loan at the Bank of America.

Eastern and Trans World Airlines third and fourth largest in the nation in passenger miles flown annually, have been grounded by walkouts. The nation's largest line, American, still is flying—under the shadow of a threatened strike that was delayed by a court order. Some 6,700 members of the International Assn. of Machinists struck TWA a week ago Friday, and the line's 200 passenger planes were grounded Monday, Also Monday, 550 members of the Flight Engineers International Assn. and 5,500 IAM me- 22 ichanics struck Eastern, grounding 91 J188 planes. 1 B I The two strikes threw about 35,000 employes out of work. Snarled Travel Wednesday night the twin strike 81 snarled holiday travel and divert- take up the slack created by the walkouts. At American Airlines, the company Friday night offered to sit down "anywhere and anytime" with the Air Line Pilots Assn. to try to settle differences without a strike. A union spokesman said the company offer sounded like "a public relations maneuver." The offer came after U.S. Dist. Court Judge Frederick VanPelt Bryan tongue-lashed both the association and the line as he issued an- extension on a strike-restraining order. The order would have expired at 11:59 p.m. Friday. The extension is good until Monday. Judge Bryan became angry when he learned that neither side had met Wednesday as he had instructed them to do. Instead, the two sides had become involved in a dispute over where the meeting was to take place. The judge said "The attitude of neither party commends itself to the court. Both have failed morally in the matter." In Miami Friday, U.S. Dist. Court Judge Emmett C. Choate ent." The size of the target area wa.s not disclosed. The missile's silvertipped nos« cone — which in event of war would be a nuclear warhead — dropped into the south Atlantic near Ascension Island. The huge rocket sped into the Horida sky like a flaming meteor Friday night and remained visible or nearly four minutes as it curved gracefully into the path hrougli the higher atmosphere to ts target. Absolutely Certain But, despite the very apparent success of the launching at 9:27 p.m., the Defense Department and Air Force waited until today to ae absolutely certain before announcing results of the shot. The Convair Division of the General Dynamics Corp., builder of the Atlas, claimed success of the flight shortly after the launching. : The Defense Department announcement , of the firing said: : "The Department of Defense hns announced that the Atlas ICBM launched last night was successfully test fired for the first time over the full intercontinental range, a distance of approximately 5,500 nautical miles. (6,325 statute miles.) Over Atlantic Rang* "The missile was fired over the Atlantic missile range from Cape Canaveral, Fla., at 9:27 p. m. EST Friday. "The missile was powered for this significant flight by its three engine cluster. "Prior succesful firings, all at less than the full range, but employing all three engines were on Aug. 2, Aug. 28, Sept. 14, and Nov. 17. "Last night's test came, less than a year after the first successful flight of the Atlas, made last Deo. 17, when the test vehicle went slightly more than 500 miles." Ships Watch Electronic recording devices spotted on a number of islands and ships showed the progress of the missile over its range. Near \scention Island, ships and air:raft on patrol watched for the impact of the nose cone. The successful flight matched Russia's claim of possession of an intercontinental bombing missile.
