WASHINGTON, 7P)--Progress in developing rockets which may pierce the secrets of the skies was described Monday by the Smithsonian institution. In a new report on the work of Dr. Robert H. Goddard of Clark university in developing these rockets, the institution, which at one time tinanced his research, declared that "rocket ships" which would carry human beings are impossible at present but that the carrying of scientific instruments Is practical. TOO Miles an Hour. Dr. Goddard's rockets, which weigh between 58 and 85 pounds, have attained speeds of 700 miles an hour, or 200 miles greater than the highest airplane speed which engineers expect to achieve, and h.ave risen- about 7,500 feet in short experimental flights in the desert near Roswell, N. Mex. The motor of the machine, the Smithsonian report declared, is a combustion chamber in which liquid oxygen and gasoline mix with explosive force. The resulting power is exerted downward through nozzles to the tail. Gyroscope Developed. To control these jets and keep the rocket on a straight path, Dr. Goddard developed a small gyroscope, a rapidly spinning top which resists efforts to turn it. This controls the fins on the tail which direct the driving flames. "Inasmuch as the rockets started slowly, the first few hundred feet of the flight reminded one of a fish swimming in a vertical direction," Dr. Goddard said in describing the action of his machines. "The continually increasing speed of the rockets, with the accompanying steady roar, make the flights very impressive," he added. 61 DEAD IN IOWA 193 6 AUTO TOLL Ottumwa Man Most Recent Victim When Struck by Hit-Run Car.
