IKE MESSAGE A START Snags in Worldwide Relay Network May Be Broken WASHINGTON <AP)-fh6 flew space communications system tested with President Eisenhower's Christmas message is 'designed .ultimately to provide a new aid to the military services in worldwide communications. ' David Young, space, technology coodinator for the Pentagon's advanced Research Projects Agency, gave this account today in telling of plans to break current bottlenecks in long-distance communications. ARPA directed the launching of the Atlas which is now orbiting high above the earth with tiriy radios and • a tape recorder aboard. • ' Young told a reporter that satellites would be used as space relay stations to transmit messages on high radio frequencies which can not be used in ordinary transoceanic long range radio transmission. He indicated the system would also add vastly to the message capacity now offered on crowded oceanic cables. the radio system consists o two device* each a llttls larger than an ordinary portable radio Each can receive voice or telegraphic-type radio, store it on tape recorder, then transmit it to a ground receiving station upon proper command. , Different Two devices arc carried in case one should,fail. Each was tuned to a slightly different wavelength Atlas will' pick up only mes sages which are in a proper code thus cutting out unwanted signals Likewise special ground receiv ers are set to catch only such messages '' as are addressed to them in their particular codes. Young said that at present the receiving stations are not placec ideally for a worldwide relay system. It would be ideal—and plans envision this—to have them all located near the equator. Because the four army stations tracking Atlas in the southern United States are well north o the equator while Atlas' path travels to and fro across the equa Air Force Denies Jet Plane With Nuclear Arms Crashed ODESSA, Tex. (AP) - The Air Force wrote off as false today the reported crash in West Texas Friday night of a nuclear-armed jet plane. "It was a false &larm," said Col. James A. Johnson, acting commander of Webb Air Force Base at Big Spring. Two witnesses told the Ector County sheriff's office here they saw an engine fall off a jet plane ns it streaked over the oil fields northwest of Odessa later Friday. They said dense black smoke arose just after the craft passed over the horizon, Another informant, unidentified got word to the sheriff at An drews, 30 miles north, that three jets apparently collided in forma tion. One disappeared and the oth er two sped out of sight, accord ing to this version. ."It is assumed," Col. Johnson said, "that after sunset, high-alti tude (vapor) condensation trails from three aircraft apparently on a training exercise caused the ex citement." AT "AXE" JOHNSON'S It's no secret!

A wool tapestry went for $46,200. A writing table brought almost $100,000. Antique dealers are among the happiest people in England these days. In one auction after another buyers have been rushing in to bid for their stock in trade. The demand in the last 10 weeks has been unprecedented. Buyers and sellers from all over the world lave been flocking to London for .he daily auctions at antique houses. Four pages from one of Bee- ihoven's sketch books went for $10,360. A Flemish prayer book sold for $89,600. The opportunity to cash in on family treasures has sent the great old name of England—many of them impoverished by 20th Cen- ;ury inheritance taxes — combing through their accumulated possessions for salable items. But many of the collections on sale came from America. "The dealers' commission here is is an official at York," explained Sotheby'«, a leading auction house. "That fact alone would help to explain why London has become the center of the international art trade."

In addition, they received $130 a month rent oh the other half of a recently-purchased duplex In which they lived. $780 A Month That gave them a total of $780 a month — before taxes and deductions. Police, who provided the figures, said that out of this modest income the couple was paying $255 a month on the duplex, $55 on a car, and $35 on furniture. They also were making payments on a $2,000 credit union loan used to make part of the down payment on the duplex, and paying premiums on the $87,000 worth of life insurance. An insurance policy for $45,000 came to light Friday when a quarterly payment of $85.85 was due. Police said Mrs. Bullock had told them she knew of only $42,000 worth of life insurance on her husband: a $9,000 policy with his employer, two $5,000 policies, and a $23,000 policy covering the mortgage on the duplex. The Investigation turned up other baffling angles. For example: Mrs. Bullock was' married for about two years to a dentist, Dr. Glennon E. Engleman, 31. They were divorced more than two years ago. Refused to testify Engleman refused to testify at an inquest Friday on the ground that he might incriminate himself. He also refused to take a He .detector test, police said. A lie detector test also was refused, police said, by Thomas Johnson, a high school teacher who testified he met Engleman at the dentist's office at 7:15 p.m Wednesday and they didn't part until 8:55 p.m. after visiting drugstore below the office. It was about 7:30 p.m. Wednesday that Bullock was found dying In front of the museum. Tried to Arouse The druggist at the downstairs store, Oliver C.
