(AP Photofax) American Pilots to Strike Over Wage Dispute CHICAGO (AP)-The Air Line Pilots Assn. says 1,500 pilots 6f American Airlines will strike at 11:59 p.m. (local time) Friday in & dispute over wages and working conditions. The announcement last night came in the midst of emergency meetings in Chicago between the union and company. ALPA said the negotiations would continue. In New York, the company said it would continue to accept reser vations despite the strike threat. C. A. Sayen, president of ALPA snid weeklong negotiations had failed to result in satisfactory progress, and that "Our only remaining reluctant alternative is to proceed with our original plans." American Airlines pilots had scheduled a strike at midnight Nov. 25 but were restrained by a temporary injunction issued by a federal judge in New York. The same judge declined to issue a permanent injunction while the Chicago negotiations were in progress. ALPA contends the present pay scale is below American's competitors. Present wages range from $400 to $1,602 a month on piston engine planes. The pilots also seek improvements in scheduling and working conditions such as the amount of time a pilot is away from home in relation The last 27. to flight time, contract expired AUSTIN (Minn.

Coroner Walter McCarron said the most important finding was a report of sneak smoking in the school just before the fire in which 89 children and 3 nuns perished. Sgt. Drew Brown of the police arson squad told the coroner's blue ribbon jury Tuesday that: "We have definitely found there had been smoking in the school" near the stairwell where the fire started, "We have found definitely that combustible materials were stored in the stairwell." Brown testified the aron squad found two boys who said they had seen the sneak smokers between 2:20 and 2:30 p.m. The fire alarm was wounded at 2:42. Brown said the boys could not identify the smokers by name and that pupils and teachers would be questioned again. McCarron said the smoking incident "promises to open an en- ,o the boss.

REMODELING SALE Entire Showroom Stock Being Sold at Drastically Reduced Prices! America's growing space age might—the nose cone of the first ballistic missile launched at this 'West Coast base. Neither the Air Force nor the Navy will make any attempt to recover the cone, hurled 1,500 miles across the Pacific missile range Tuesday. Yet it deserves a place in some museum of scientific endeavor. Under Combat Conditions • For the cone of the medium range Thor missile, capable of carrying a nuclear ' warhead, marks America's first firing of a aallistics missile under combat conditions. It shows the Thor is moving from the development stage to the -operational. Another Thor was fired Tuesday night from Cape Canaveral, Fla., giving the United States its first double-barreled rocket shoot from both coasts. The weapon appeared to perform perfectly. It was fired as part of the close-out phase of the Air Force IRBM research and development program. Here at Vandenberg, a regular Air Force crew pushed some buttons and the 50-ton weapon soared some 300 miles up to the fringes of space. The blastoff came only 11 minutes after the 11-man crew raised the Thor upright and began filling it with liquid fuel. 9,000 M.P.H. ; Two-and-one-half minutes after the first sign of fire in its tail, the. missile was racing targetward iat a speed of 9,000 miles an hour. [Seconds later the fuel tank section of the missile fell away and was burned up by friction as it re .! Thom P st>n . entered the earth's atmosphere. The nose cone sped on, reaching its maximum speed of 10,000 miles an hour before plunging back through the atmosphere to its impact area 1,500 miles away. Maj. Gen. David Wade, commander of the 1st Missile Division, said the shot was a great success, j despite a 3-hour, 28-minute delay in the final half-hour of the countdown caused by minor technical adjustments. Several additional minutes were lost waiting for three trains to rumble across the base, which lies on the state's main north-south rail route. THOR ON PAD — A Thor IRBM missile gets a final checkout on its launching pad prior to its firing. Firing of the missile signalled the opening of the west coast's new missile training and testing facility. (USAF Photo via AP Photofax).
