SUNDAY, JUNE 10,19B2 THE PHAROS-TRIBUNE and LOGANSPORT PRESS, LOGANSPORT, INDIANA PAGE FIVE To Start Nike Tests In July WASHINGTON AP) ' - The United States may begin tests of the Nike Zeus anti-IOBM weapon next month, hard on< the heels of the current nuclear experiments in the same general area of the Pacific. While Air Force ballistic mis siles launched from California and Zeus weapons fired from Kwaja- lein Island will be used, no nu- cleaV blasts are expected. The trials are concerned with testing the capability of the Zeus to intercept an intercontinental ballistic missile at the same time ignoring accompanying decoys. The atmospheric and high altitude nuclear tests now are at about'the halfway pdint in the series presumed to include about 30 detonations. The first test was on April 25 and the final shot, depending' on weather and other factors, may come during July. While Johnston and Christmas Islands the nuclear test sites, are about 1,500 miles from Kwajalein, the range from Vandenberg Air Force Base to a point above Kaw- jalein—over which ICBMs will be fired—passes close to Johnston. To conduct both series simultaneously also would involve complications in electronics, communication and supply systems. The Army is anxious to get the tests of its Zeusu under way, work ing against actual lOBMs instead of smaller, slower and shorter range rockets or against electronically simulated targets. It is convinced.'the test will demonstrate that produotion of the 'Zeus system should start. Army scientists are also convinced that the Zeus can pick out the phony objects from warheads. Asst. Secretary of the Army Finn J. Larsen, head of Army research and development, says the first real test of Zeus will come when decoys accompany the Air Force ICBMs. "We in the Army expect to show that the Nike Zeus will.perform well against the decoys and other re-entry aids that will accompany some of those missiles," he said.

County Democratic chairman asked two'county officials Saturday to 'withdraw as candidates for reelection because their names figured in reports of an alleged $5,000 bribe. Both refused.' Prosecutor Patrick Brennan said he wouldn't quit'the. race, declaring "I will riot permit injury to the integrity of my office." County Commissioner John F. Sol'mos said he'd leave his future up 'to the voters and would not take his name off the ticket. "I think it.is up to the voting public to 'determine whether I -should stay in or out of office." The refusals were in reply to •identical letters sent both Democratic officials by Ideal Baldoni Sr., chairman of the county Democratic Central Committee. Brennan has any connection strongly with the denied alleged bribe, first disclosed this week in a .brief filed by the Northwest Indiana Crime .Commission with the State Supreme Court.- The brief was part of a commission request for disbarment of Metro Holovachka, former Lake County prosecutor under Federal conviction for income tax Solm'qs told a news conference Wednesday he delivered to Bre"n- Buying Fails To Give Grains Aid During Past Week CHICAGO (AP) — ;A few scattered flurries of buying failed to pull the grain futures market out of its bearish trend last week and prices continued their general downward trend on the Board of Trade.

NuSbaum had confirmed earlier •he paid $5,000 to Solmos to guarantee he wouldn't be convicted .of a reckless homicide charge Lake County stemming from the death of two persons in a collision of his ambulance with a bus in Gary in January, 1956. Baldoni wrote Brennan and Solmos that what connection they had or didn't have with the case wasn't a matter for him to judge. But he said .the circumstances in which they were involved, "whettv er rightly or wrongly," had put about them "a doubt in the minds of many people." "From your long political experience,'" public and he added. "you must be the first to realize this fact. I have always believed that candidates for public office must be above suspicion in public minds. "In fairness to the public and to his political party, one should refrain from or withdraw from candidacy until such a doubt is completely removed." Brennan, who earlier branded Solmos' statement "utterly false and without foundation," replied by letter to Baldoni, saying he intended to stay in the .race because "of my obligation to the people." The prosecutor promised a vig nrnus campaign and said he "will nullify the lie from Solmos." Arrange Party For Inventor ' . ;. i WASHINGTON (AP)-PrcsidHil Kennedy ..and some 1,200 other Democrats arranged a, wing-ding party Saturday night for Matthew H. MeCloskey, inventor. "And what did Matt McCloskey ever invent?" you may ask. He invented 'the $100-a-plat'e Democratic fund-raising dinner, that's what he did. . Some people regard this as the greatest invention since Eli Whitney's machine for separating cottonseed from the fluff. Matt's .device separates the party faithful from their cash in a most felicitous manner. So effective is it that the Republicans, noticing that Matt forgot to take out a patent, have pirated the idea. As a reward for his genius,' McCloskey, 69-year-old retired Philadelphia contractor and long-time Democratic treasurer, is going to the. old sod of his ancestors, ambassador to Ireland. So Kennedy, former President Harry S. Truman and many another bigwig made a date to fora gather at the Mayflower Hotel Saturday night to wish him well. The enthusiasm, ran so high that, although Kenned^ proclaims flation is ended the price of the dinner was raised to $250 a head. Starting off with supreme of lobster and proceeding through filet mignpn with asparagus, tips, the menu ended up with lemon sherbert and cookies. A slide rule expert figured out that the asparagus 'tips, for example, probably cost the diners $5.35 per tip, Singer Rosemary Clnoney and Safety and the B'ederal Petroleum Board are involved in the investi- ation. They are looking for wells deviated—slanted or curved—more :han the permitted three degrees. By late this week-^with the sur. veys still continuing — inclination and directional surveys had .urned up 12 "wells deviated illegal- y- Ally.' Gen. Will Wilson said ona of the deviated wells slanted 50 degrees. He said the.well bot- omed at 3,500 feet below (he sur- r ace 'of the ground, but held 5,100 'eet of pipe. The horizontal dis- :ance from tjie ground opening of this well and its bottom was 3,28fi r eet, Estimates of the value of "hot oil" pumped through slanted wells vary widely. Several weeks ago, some industry sources estimated privately that $10 million was jumped through slant-hole wells irl 1961 alone. Late this week, a Dallas newspaper estimated that theft of oil by illegal drilling deviations may amount to $8 million a month Another published report said 200 to 300 leases were involved and as many as 1,000 wells in the field could be involved. This week, about 80 independent oil-producers in the field formed an organization to give "the other side of the story" of the well deviation controversy. G. U. Yoachum of Kilgore, temporary chairman of the group, said "we are highly incensed ai entertainer Sammy Davis Jr., were on hand to entertain. But Democratic National Chairman John M. Bailey was billed in an act calculated to wow the tomers. He was assigned to present McCloskey a lifetime 'card admitting him to any Democratic fund-raising dinner — if he pays like everybody else. the by. 'police methods' being some state officials used attempts to obtain evidence." 1 But there were also many producers, .Commission Chairman Yv. J. Murray said, who indicated they would not cooperate. More than 30 east Texas wells have had pipeline connections severed, he said, because operators would not let the commission sur vey the well. About 50 Texas Rangers and highway patrolmen are standing duty around the clock to prevent wells from, being "junked" — obstacles put in 'the well hole—before the surveys can be made. Still, Wilson said Tuesday one well scheduled for survey had been "junked" and the survey could not be made. QUAKER MEETINGS SET RICHMOND,' Ind.
