Army shot for the moon It expected this weekend. lh« Soviet attempt could be > wney one—to put § iio-to-320* pound probe into orbit around the MBS. JATCEES BAKE SALE FRIDAY moon, taking movies and TV pic- turn. Soviet scientist way baefe in ttiry 1W» : outlined juto such a , eilltef It 'f&HMd boomer- an*," ityt Honald C. Wakeford, director Of ; ;f«ie«3»ll Of the National Research and Development Corp., Atlanta, da. "It U bftllered that this project hai been actively'pursued since its inception and that it is cur- rently approaching the hardware stage," Wakeford says. Space Journal is the ffiagatine of )he Rocket City Astronomical Assn., organized by Scientists at .Redstone Arsenal with Dr. Wernher von Braun as one of the leaders. Reports suggest the Soviet moon probe will be radlo-tele-dlrected from earth, relaying moon pictures back, Wakeford Says. He says the Russians are par- ticularly interested in learning whether the moon has earthquakes, why some moon craters seem to appear and disappear, and the meaning of some white clouds which seem to be found In certain areas of the moon. A Soviet astronomer recently said he had taken photographs of apparent volcanic action on the moon. • The Soviets art pushing ahead in guided missiles, and surely have rockets capable of reaching the moon, Wakeford notes. "They have constructed, and have launched, and have in production, every type of missile that is known from underwater-to- Surface through the'missile spectrum to surface-to-surface." 'Soviet launching kites for intercontinental (5,006-mile) and intermediate range (1,500-mile) vehicles "have been pinpointed and ballistic flights of their major weapons ipparently have been tracked by radar from Turkey." "Launching bases, missile plants,- missile schools, missile test centers and all the attendant facilities needed for experimentation and production are to be found all over the tl.S.S.R. Quantity production is apparent, and we have no reason to doubt the quality of the products," Wakeford adds. The Russians are believed to have seven types of intermediate range missiles, with • probably more, than half being in operation, he says. They also have two intercontinental missiles — the T-3 and T-3A—which are in operation and which can carry, hydrogen warheads. "It is extremely likely that Soviet scientists will 'have man in spade shortly," Wakeford declares. More than 80 per cent of Aus- trlr is mountainous, but more than half of this Is under cultivation. Agriculture employs one-third of the population. Makeshift Bear Trap Killi Man GLEN WILTON, Va. (A — A makeshift bear trap was blamed for the death here ot C. W. Thomas, a fiotetcourt county farmer.
