Jan- The outlook was for Saturday afternoon temperatures to reach only zero In the north lo 12 above in the south. And for Sunday morning, read A slowly warming trend is due Monday, AMERICANS (Continued from Page 1) attempts to hit the moon. A new try by the Army already has been scheduled, possibly for early next month. An official of the Defense Department's advanced Research Projects Agency said it had learn ed of the Russian probe attempt before Moscow Radio's announcement. The timing of the House committee's unanimous resolution and the Soviet announcement, however, appeared to be a coincidence. The Russian rocket is expected to add urgency to the committee's proposal. Senate Democratic leader Lyndon B. Johnson of Texas, for example, when asked for comment on the Russian moon probe, said: "I have felt for some time that we are not going far enough fast enough. As weeks and months go by, we will realize it more and more." Johnson heads a Senate committee similar to the House group that made the recommendation. The reported size of the Russian rocket underscored the challenge faced by the United States. There may be enough room in the rocket for a man to eat, breath somfortably and stretch his legs. Size Helps The size also added to the Russians' chances for success. Leslie Shepherd, chairman of the British Interplanetary Society, explained n London: "By using a bigger final stage ,hey are able to incorporate more control, guidance and navigational equipment. It follows that the more equipment of this kind being used, the greater the possibility of success." Moscow Radio said the rocket leaded toward the moon at seven miles a second, containing scientific, measuring and radio equipment weighing 796.5 pounds. Its radio signal was a high pitched one of varying frequency. One receiver said it sounded like a drugstore cowboy whistling at a pretty girl. RED ROCKET (Continued'from Page 1) The rocket was sent up at "the second cosmic speed" of 11.2 kilometers (about 7 miles) a second the speed needed to break away from the earth's gravitation, the Russians said. A slower firs cosmic speed only gets an objec into orbit around the earth. orBuFdlne-eruTprnVf L3V 2 "Austin ^^ W " n ° tWn ^ t0u Jndicate Homesteads. any living thing was in the rocket Bert Swenson et al to Conrad Dyr- " "" •• — •land, Olt 45 - 36-101-18 — VU of Lyle E.

Albert Lea in Move to Gain Junior College ALBERT LEA, Minn. — An attorney - general's opinion whether Albert Lea suspended or abolished its junior college during World War II is sought by group promoting re-establishment of the school. The group was appointed by Mayor Nilen Shoft to look into the problem of post-high school education. Albert Lea Junior College closed during the war and since then Albert Lea students have enrolled in Austin Junior College. State law prohibits establishment of a junior college within 36 miles of another junior college, so that the established junior colleges would have an adequate area to serve. The "steeririg committee" conducted a survey among eight high schools and found 589 senior high students would attend a junior college but 60 per cent qualified this by wanting part • time work. Cost, based on the Austin Junior College expenses, would be $280 to the school district (three mills in Albert Lea), $120 tuition to the student and $200 state aid. Mason City's junior college cost is $442 per pupils and Austin $600. Pope Goes Outside Walls to See Opera VATICAN CITY (AP) — The opera is coming to Pope John XXIII but he plans to meet it part way.
