I RON WOOD DAILY GLOBE SECTION TWO IRONWOOD, MICHIGAN, WEDNESDAY, JUNE 16,1965. Norden, Inventor Of Bombsight, Dies Tuesday By ELTON C. FAY WASHINGTON (AP) — You've probably seen it in old war movies — the thing the bombardier toted out to the B17 in a little black satchel. It was a legend in World War II, and even in Korea. It was the Norden bombsight. Its inventor, Carl L. Norden, died Tuesday at 85 at his home in Zurich, Switzerland. His little black box — crude, perhaps by present-day standards —was far and away the best thing of its kind in World War II. Its secrets were among the most carefully guarded of the war. Before Norden came up with his design cruder sighting instruments — essentially cross- hair devices with hasty mathematical computations by the bombardier — were used for high-altitude bombing. Misses were plentiful. When the United States entered World War II, it had the vehicles for high-level strategic attack — the B17 which was followed midway through the war by the B24. But accurate devices for bomb sighting were lacking. ' Norden began work for the U.S. government in the early months of the war, concentrating on an improved sight. What • he developed was a compact package, small enough to be carried in a black bag — for purposes of secrecy — but with a sighting acuracy beyond anything then possessed by this country or probably any other. It was a stabilized, automatic bombsight, with gyroscopes controlling the pitch and roll of the instrument. As the bomber headed in toward the target, the bombardier took aim. He cranked into the bomb sight, by various cranks and buttons, data on wind, drift, speed of the aircraft and altitude, with corrections as the HOUSES COLLAPSE—A cluster of houses and apartment buildings on a bluff in the Pacific Palisades area of Los Angeles is breaking up in accelerated fashion because of land slippage.

One of those leaders, John Bush, became the first grand knight of this group of Catholic gentlemen to forward Columbian- ism on the Gogebic Range. He was the first of 34 Knights of Columbus who have led the way during the last 56 years, according to the present Grand Knight John Kostac.

Elimination of Tariffs Favored WASHINGTON (AP) — The House Ways and Means Committee Tuesday approved legislation to carry out the U.S.- Canadian agreement to eliminate tariffs on new automobiles and parts. The committee left intact the core of the legislation, allowing the president to proclaim an end to the tariffs effective immediately or retroactive to Jan. 17, when Canada dropped its duties on imports of the same goods from the United States. Two changes were made in subsidiary portions of the bill. As proposed by the administration, the legislation would have authorized carrying out similar agreements with other countries if they were negotiated. The committee wrote in a provision that any such agreements must be submitted to Congress, which could block implementation by a concurrent resolution adopted by botn houses. If Congress did not so act with 60 days, the agreement would go into effect. The other change had to do with provisions in the .legislation for special assistance to firms or workers who could show they underwent special hardship because of the agreement. The bill originally provided for a presidential determination of need. The committee added a provision for the Tariff Commission to make the investigation on which the president wouia base fas deien.miiiuua. The agreement has been advocated on the ground the U.S. Canadian auto market is essentially one, with most Canadian manufacturing being done by U.S. - owned branches. Eliminating the tariff frontier, advocates said, would permit more efficient operation. Former Resident / Is Making Study Of Blood Flow Dr. Paul C. Johnson, formerly of Ironwood, Is studying the blood flow in body organs at Indiana University, Indianapolis, under a research grant from the American Heart Association. With the aid of a specially developed microscope for" measuring the diameter of tiny blood vessels as blood flows through them, Dr. Johnson, who is the son of Mr. and Mrs. George Johnson, 322 Douglas Blvd., is engaged in some crucial experiments that may help unravel the nature of a body flow-control mechanism called "autoregula- tion." Auto regulation means that there is an effort on the part of the vital organs, such as the brain, kidney, liver and intestines, or the local blood vessels which would tend to disrupt normal blood flow. For example, autoregulation is thought to have a major role in preventing blood from rushing away from the brain when a person stands up. It is not known how autoregu lation is accomplished. A better understanding of this phenomen says Dr. Johnson could lead to significant advances in know ledge of disorders like essentia hypertension. Several theories exist to ex plain autoregulation, but D r Johnson says the mechanism really cannot be nailed down without direct study of how tiny arteries change in size as blood flows through them under vary ing conditions. For this reason he and his as soclate, Dr. William Greatbatch an engineer, have developed th so-called "flying spot" micro scope which makes it possibK to investigate—for the first time according to Dr. Johnson—blooc vessel dimensions under liv i n g conditions.

Doan's Mvt sights were produced for the Army and Navy air forces in World War II. They continued to be important equipment for bomber aircraft into the Korean war. Then technology caught up with the old standby. The radar-computer system arrived. It could see through clouds or darkness. With its electronic brain, it could compute in split seconds. But it could not be toted in a small black bag by the bombardier walking to his waiting plane. Radar-computer sighting equipment in present-day bombers weighs hundreds or thousands of pounds. For several years, Norden bombsights have been on the surplus sales market. Anyone who wants the equipment built Into them, or anyone who just has a sentimental yen for a Norden bombsight can buy one. Pilot, Son Die In Plane Crash ANN ARBOR (AP) — Com mercial pilot R.W.
