(AP) — The Army unveiled its huge moon rocket—Juno II—-Tuesday when the service tower was rolled back as part of the preparations for a launching expected within a week. The powerful rocket, very simi lar in appearance to the upiter C that fired three Explorer satel lites Into orbit, will be used for the Army's first attempt to probe far into outer space. When the tower was rolled away the base of the Army's highly touted Jupiter intermediate range ballistic missile was seen. The toj of the rocket was covered, how ever. First Stage Booster For the moon shoot, the Jupiter will be used as a first-stage boost er rocket in place of the smaller Redstone missile which gave tb big lift to the Jupiter-C satellite vehicle. The Army moon missile if e* pected to be a four-stage rocket using clusters of small, solid fuel Sergeant rockets in the upper stages. Its job will be to push a 30-pound satellite payload perhaps farther Into space than any previous man-made object. Can It "Jnoo n" Its name will be Juno II. The first Juno was a Jupiter test vehicle fired more than a year ago in one of the early nose cone re-e n t r y experiments with the 1,500-mile ballistic missile. The rocket will be aimed toward the vicinity of the moon, but Dr. Wernher TOO Braun, Army missile research chief, said recently the chancel of hitting the moon or orbiting around it arc slim. Unlike the three Air Fore* lunar probes, Juno H will not have the necessary guidance in the upper stages to pick out so fine a target. If an goes well, however, the Army moon rocket might go beyond the moon and far out into •pace. One of iU chief experiments will be to investigate the intense radiation field that rings the earth. Task Force of 25 to Chart Dems' Course WASHINGTON (AP) — The Democratic Advisory Council will meet here next Sunday to draw up a policy statement on "The Democratic task in the next two years." ^e 24-member group includes former President Harry Truman and Adlai Stevenson, among others.

Dulles was there Sunday, Monday and Tuesday as head of the U.S delegation to the inauguration of President Adolfo Lopez Mateos.

Hill consulted with Mexican officials last week and, it was said, these steps followed: Alternative Offered 1. Outgoing President Adolfo Ruiz Cortines offered known Communists and agitators an alternative — get out of town during Dulles' visit or go to jail. 2. Police rounded up and jailed potential trouble makers still around. 3. Student leaders at the university were asked to keep their! classmates in line. They apparently did, for no stone throwing was reported.

That it started in the base of a stairwell in the northeast corner of the brick Our Lady of Angela School was generally agreed upon. The why and the how were theories. ' One police arson expert theorized a cigarette flipped carelessly into a pile of trash, a wastebasket or papers may have sparked the blaze. A schoolboy sneaking a smoke was one possibility, he said.

"We always suspect arson where there is a loss of life and we cannot establish the cause of the fire," Fire Commissioner Robert J. Quinn said.

Miles represents county road and bridge employes. The board agreed'to an-informal committee meeting, but did not go along with barring the public. Such a meeting was set for 7:30 p.m. Thursday at the Courthouse. Miles declared, "Newspapers and radio can't give, the whole picture accurately because of space and time limitations and other factors involved."

Some of them will carry mice and monkeys. The Defense Department's Advanced Research Projects Agency announced today that the "Project Discoverer" program will try to put up a 1,300-pound device in its first launching attempt "late this year or early next year." At least a dozen satellite launch- ngs will be atempted, as fast as one a month, Roy Johnson, ARPA director, told newsmen. Johnson also said that an attempt will be made next year to recover a capsule from a satellite, bringing it back through the atmosphere. May Use Primate Johnson said mice will be used and, "We may, in one, use a primate." He said that the program, for the present, does not include sending up a man. • The satellites launched from Vandenberg will be aimed in a southerly direction over the Pacific Ocean. Their orbit would be around the world over the North and South Poles. The first attempts will be aimed to put the big satellites up to relative low altitudes of perhaps a few hundred miles. ARPA estimates they might make two or three passes around the world or perhaps stay up for a week. The first Discoverer vehicle will be a two-stage rocket. The booster will be a Thor IRBM produced by Douglas Aircraft Co. The second stage, the announcement said, is a new vehicle produced by the Lockheed Aircraft -orp. and powered by a Bell- Hustler engine. This latter engine is a liquid fuel rocket.

Then she turned to the right and there was another little girl, just like the first, to talk to. (How about that!) Ginger moved around a bit and first thin*g she knew there were five little girls, all like herself, looking at her from just about every direction. Next to the actual arrival of Santa Claus, that's about di much excitement as you'd expect in a girl's life. With it would be possible to send satellites weighing "thousands and thousands of pounds."
