The 85-foot Atlas was not ex pected to slip back into eycview from the continental United States until this evening. Code Equipment Roy Johnson, head of the Pentagon's Advanced Research Projects Agency, figut-ed it would be 1 p.m. by the time Atlas soared within range of four Army tracking stations across the South. These stations have the code equipment to trigger Atlas' tape recorder. Johnson said it will be decided by then whether to touch off Eisenhower's pre-launching recording a few more times or go to the next step—erase and send up another message for playback. The plan was to send back the same message for further use un til after Christmas. Hagerty said Elsenhower personally wrote it but declined to state whose idea it was to send a presidential statement aloft. 72-Hour Data ARPA scientists indicated they wanted more precise information on Atlas' travels before they try a new recording. They hoped for solid 72-hour orbit data sometime today which will allow accurate predictions of the satellite's future path during its estimated 20-day life. As of latest word the east-bound Atlas was rounding the globe every 101 minutes, 14.4 times a day, at heights from 114 to 928 miles. Communications experts saw in Atlas a pioneering stride toward systems carrying large amounts of information to any point on earth. The present radio wavelengths are already overcrowded.' Land wires and oceanic cables are busy and expensive. New Communication Field The scientists hope to open up a new communication field by beaming signals line-of-slght up to satellites in the comparatively spacious high frequencies. The satellites would then relay the words and pictures to other satellites for rebroddi:ast downward Or travelling satellites would store their information, as does Atlas, and release it over the desired spot on earth. One quick effect of Atlas on the international scene was to strengthen the West's hand in the coming showdown with Russia over the future of Berlin. Top U.S. officials expressed belief that the spectacular show of U.S. power in missiles would well have a sobering effect on Soviet Premier Khrushchev. They looked for a diplomatic, rather than _ military, clash over the onetime German capital. West European scientists saw the launching as a great stride toward man's first voyage into space. Newspapers there said the United States had forged ahead of the Russians. Moscow Radio broadcast the news without comment.
