Valuation Reported at Bunker Hill ' BUNKER HILL AFB - With the addition of several B-58 supersonic bombers at this Strategic Air Command installation, the value of the base more than doubled in the past two years,, according to statistics compiled by the comptroller's office at the base.' " The total value of the base, fully equipped, was listed at $764,363,000. This compares with $365,500,000 for the same date in 1960. The increase amounts to $398,863,000. . The increase on value was caus- • ed by the switch from F-89's and , B-47's to the faster and more ex• pensive F-106's and B-58 Husitlers. The value of aircraft at the installation as of March 31, 1962 was $642,810,000, more than double that of the I960 figure. Land and facilities were valued at $64,055,000. Also under this category is $1,735,000 for land and facilities under contract but not ' completed. These figures for 1960 'were $48,500,000 and $16,800,000. ; Supporting supplies and equipment at the base were listed at . $55,763,000 as of March 31. Approximately $31,802,001) will be spent by the end of the fiscal ", jrear for civilian payroll, purchas- 'es of material, services, bread, food, milk and other necessities. The payroll, before deductions, will be the largest amount. For the first nine months of the fiscal year, the base paid out • $16,099,000 in salaries. The base estimates that another $5,342,000 will be paid in salaries to employ- es and servicemen. In 1960, the gross military and civilian payroll was around $18,300,000, more than $3,000,000 less than now. In 1958, the gross payroll was only $7,600,000 and in 1957, it totalled $9,800,000. The increase, from 1958 fiscal year to 1962 fiscal year, totals $13,831,000.

World Cheers Carpenter's Trip United Press International Banner headlines throughout the free world proclaimed the success of U.S. astronaut M. Scott Carpenter's orbital flight today, and even behind the Iron Curtain there were many who hailed the spaceman's achievement. Americans around the world— servicemen, businessmen or tourists — received congratulations from the people of the countries where they were. ' The story of Carpenter's triple swing around the world was front-page news in such diverse publications as London's Communist Daily Worker and Tokyo's Nihon Keizai, an ultra-conservative financial newspaper. Radio Moscow brushed off Carpenter's feat as a "repetition of Myers Trims Appropriations Additional appropriations are going to be more difficult for local governmental units to obtain in the future, Ralph Myers, of Francesville, field representative of the State Board of Tax Commissioners, reported as he approved less than a third of the extra appropriations that had been passed recently by the county council.

John Glenn's flight," and Radio Peiping ignored it altogether, Propaganda broadcasts from Soviet satellite countries compared the space journey unfavorably with the feats of Russia's "cosmonauts." The Russian radio made no mention of the, suspenseful minutes during which Carpenter was lost to the world, although it did report his safe recover}'. The Soviet press relegated news of Carpenter's.three trips around the earth to brief items which stressed the difficulties o£ the flight. . In Fidel Castro's Cuba, many persons followed the flight by radio and some watched it on television. U.S. telecasts usually cannot be received in Cuba, but unusual weather Thursday made it possible for some Cuban .viewers to pick up Fort- Myers, Fla.' ' Cubans were especially pleased by Carpenter's radioed remarks in Spanish when he passed over Mexico. The Daily News in New York and at least two London newspapers hailed Carpenter 'as "Great Sco'tl!" in their headlines Millions of Americans , went about their business with portable radios glued to their ears, unwilling to get out of touch with the big story. President* Kennedy followed developments as eagerly as any American. hearing in the "The American people will be gratified by the successful orbital flight of Lt. Cmdr. Malcolm Scott Carpenter and his subsequent rescue," said a Kennedy statement issued minutes after the conclusion of the flight. . "The skill and initiative of those who iparticipated .in the rescue of Commander Carpenter, coupled with Commander Carpenter's courage, is heartwarming to all of us." L.
