PAUL (AP) - Fifteen persons remained in Ancker Hospital today with injuries suffered when an overloaded passenger elevator dropped to the bottom of the shaft. Six suffered ankle, heel or foot fractures. Attendants reported all the patients were improved and some would be released later today. Nineteen employes of American Radio and Television Co. were injured Thursday after cables snapped, dropping the cage between one and two stories. Also taken to the hospital was Al Grimes, 51, who suffered shock after pulling several of the injured from the smashed elevator. Grimes and four others were released after treatment. Albert A.

The Air Force dubbed its satel lite Operation Score, after the first letters of the words signal communications, orbit, relay ex periment. These summed up it! purposes except for the basic one This was to see if the Atlai would fly as faithfully as it did two weeks ago, when it travelec a prescribed 6,325-mile course over the Atlantic. Of Thursday night's test, the Pentagon said: "Most successful." But it did much more, as the Pentagon'pointed out in a statement: "The entire vehicle achieved an orbit. As such, it is the largest satellite that has been put into orbit hy the United States. More importantly, this marks the first time that a high accuracy missile guidance system has been used to steer such a vehicle into its orbital trajectory." Thus, in a matter of minutes, the United States proved once more that it has a dependable ICBM and also took the wind out of Soviet Premier Nikita Khrsh- chev's taunts about "lemon-size" U.S. satellites. Novel Twist There was a novel twist to the launching which sent the Atlas soaring at 17,000 miles an hour. In its nose cone was a unique communications system—and there was speculation that its tape recordings included the voice of Eisenhower. Newsmen expressed this speculation to Pentagon officials, who would neither confirm nor deny it. The communications system is part of the 150-pound payload in the rocket's nose cone. It record, messages sent to it and, on ( command signal later, sends th messages back to earth. The Atlas weighed 100 tons 01 the ground. The comffined thrus of its three rocket engines at sei level was 359,000 pounds.

(AP Wirephoto) NOTES FROM STEVENSON. NIXON Loser Is 'Winner' as Hays \ Is Feted by Well-Wishers WASHINGTON (AP) - Even a loser has his moments of triumph. Such a moment came Thursday night for Rep. Brooks Hays (D- Ark). Hays, an avowed moderate on the segregation issue, was unseated last month by Dr. Dale Alford, Little Rock segregationist who ran as a late entry write- in candidate. In tribute to Hays, about 700 friends and well wishers assembled at a dinner and heard him praised by many national figures. Not Hopeless Responding, Hays said the cause of moderation is not hopeless. He called for "an appreciation of what the rule of law means in sustaining our liberties and our property." Laudatory messages were read from many national figures unable to attend.' Included were telegrams from Adlai Stevenson, one of the sponsors of the event; Vice President Richard M. Nixon; Gov. Price Daniel of Texas; and various members of Congress. Enhanced by Defeat Nixon said Hays' "outstanding reputation was enhanced rather than tarnished by defeat."

A NEW WINNER EVERY DAY AT STERLING SHOPPING CENTER NEW YORK (AP)—The wonder of it is that they can still smile— these 27 women who underwent the tortures of the damned as the human guinea pigs in Nazi experiments. The women, flown in Thursday from Warsaw, chattered happily when the big plane dropped down from above the clouds to give them their first view of America. But physically, it was a painful exit from the plane at Idlewild Airport. It was the halt leading, the lame, and here is why: At one time their legs had been cut open, their bones broken or Russians Snap and Americans Snap - Pictures SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - It looked like camera day with the visiting Russians Thursday. And it was a two-way picture taking. Some of the 67 Russian scientists visiting the Bay area toured University of California laboratories. Most carried cameras, and used them freely. The Russians came on the Soviet laboratory ship Vityaz, which has been doing oceanographic research for the International Geophysical Year. More than 1,000 Americans visited the Vityaz, on which Capt. Igor Sergeev held open house. Many of them snapped pictures. 5 DAY FORECAST Minnesota: Temperatures will average 12-15 degrees below the normal highs of 18 north to the middle 20s south; normal lows, zero north to about 10 south; cold until warming trend about Sunday and Monday and colder again near the end of the period; precipitation about .10-.15 inch occurring as light snow about Tuesday.

The program includes a concert by the Junior Choir. A pot-luck lunch will be served. shattered. Poisonous bacilli or gangrene-causing material such as glass, wood, dirt and soiled rags were sealed into their legs. It happened 1942-44, at Ravens- bruck in East Germany. German doctors, selected ,79 healthy young women—members of the Polish resistance—to test the power of sulfa drugs in fighting serious infections developing from unattended battle wounds. As the victims neared death, the sulfa drugs were applied. Again, the wonder of it: of the 79 women, 53 survived. Variety of Diseases What condition are they in now? They have a variety of diseases, such as cardiac ailments, osteo- myelitis, pernicious anemia, tuberculosis, hypertension, asthma. And they have constant leg pains. Since the end of World War II the only support the women had received was from the Polish government. But last summer a group of Americans, the Hiroshima Peace Center Associates, decided to help them. The Polish women will spend six days in New York. Then they go to live in the homes of Americans who volunteered their hospitality. In each place, destinations not disclosed, medical treatment has been arranged for them.

Added Seconds of Thrust Put Atlas Into Orbit WASHIJfflfofl (AP) * Ettra uel for 13 additional seconds of hrust by ita rocket enginM>kicked ,he Alias missile into otblt. The missile which became a sat- llite was a standard Atlas except that it carried a "little more fuel," aid Rear Adm. John E. Clark, eputy director of the Pentagon's Advanced Research Projects Ageriby. The final burnout of the rocket engine occurred about 4H minutes after launching. This included the ixtra 13 seconds of thrust. When an Atlas missile is fired n conventional surface-to-surface ests it flies at approximately 98 per cent of the speed needed for orbit. All three engines, plus the moderate thrust of two small rockets 'or steadying the missile on its nitial course, were fired at once. After delivering the mighty lift needed to get the 100-ton load off from the ground and start it toward 17,100-mile-per-hour speed, the two main boosters dropped away. This left the 85-foot-long main shell of the rocket, with the empty sustalner rocket and instruments inside it, heading into, orbit. Orbital speed is about 18,000 miles per hour, but varies somewhat with height. The expected life of the 4% ton satellite is about 20 days. The prospective brief life is because it was put into comparatively low orbit. Initial estimates were thai the low point of the eliptical orbit would be 118 mile? high and the maximum height 625 miles. Reds Demand • Withdrawal ol Atom Missile pANMUNJOM (AP)-The North Korean Communists today demanded that the U.N. Commanc immediately withdraw the atomic capable Matador guided missil and all other up-to-date weapons brought into South Korea in the past 18 months. The U.N. Command immediately rejected the Red demands made, at a meeting of the Mill tary Armistice Commission. The Communist delegate, Maj Gen. Kang Sang Ho, charged thi transfer of the Matadors and oth er new American weapons to South Korea violated the armlstic agreement to introduce no weapons not in Korea when the fight ing stopped. The U.N. Command repudiatec that clause of the armistice in June 1957, saying that the Com munists had been violating it per sistently and equipment in tb South had to be brought up to date to meet the Red threat.

Patrick Qulnn, president of Dodge Local 3, called the settlement fair to both sides. With the exception of Imperial cars and Dodge trucks, the dispute had shut off Chrysler automobile production. A strike by 7,100 in Chrysler's Dodge Main plant here mushroomed into idleness of 44,000. Workers at Dodge Main, a key Chrysler parts supplier, walked out in a dispute over work loads.

Associate Justice Leroy Matson said in the unanimous decision that Anson was disqualified from benefits under the Employment Security Act. Justice Matson said the question before the high court was whether an employe, a non-member of the union local who resigned from his job in obedience to instructions from the union business representative because of union seniority regulations, is entitled to unemployment benefits. "Because of the seniority provision," Justice Matson said, "the employer has no control over the selection of projectionists sent him." The amusement company had asked the supreme court to review the decision because any benefits paid to Anson were charged to the employer's experience-rating account. 90 Passengers Get Atlas View CHICAGO (AP)—Some 90 passengers on a Miami airliner saw from stand aloft the sight of a lifetime Thursday night—launching of the Atlas satellite. The plane, a Delta Air Lines DC7B, was flying at 19,000 feet over Vero Beach, Fla., when the satellite missile was fired from Cape Canaveral about 40 miles to the east. Pilot Ralph Eames turned his plane broadside to the spectacle as passengers, alerted by First Officer William Ballenger, stared out of the ship's right side windows. The sight was described by James L. Bixby, 37, of Chicago, one of the passengers, who said it "first looked like a huge ground fire." "It seemed to stand motionless for endless seconds just above the " ground before gathering momentum," he said. "Then with tremendous speed it climbed almost vertically much higher than the plane's altitude before beginning a gradual are toward the southeast as it sped into orbit."
