Satellite Fascinates Scientists WASHINGTON UP). — Russia's epoch making earth satellite sped 'round 'and 'round a fascinated world Saturday sending what may be messages in secret code back to its creators in the Soviet Union. As it circled the globe every 96.2 minutes, 500 miles out in space, the Western World's scientist knew it was' there because they "coud pick up its radio signals. But they experienced great difficulty in spotting it visually. Although there were some scattered reports that it had been seen, these were disputed, and there was some feeling that it might never be spotted except by Russians. . .7 Times A Day Over US The satellite's course around'the globe from north to south brings it over ths United States seven times every '24 hours as the earth tpins beneath it. Two American scientists said the Soviet launched sphere was sending back coded messages that they were unable to decipher. A Cambridge,.Mass astronomer said it was obvious the Russians had chosen to launch the satellite at such an angle to the sun, as to prevent visual observations in' the free world. There were a number of reports of sightings from different parts of the United States but officials at the Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory in Cambridge said the baby moon 's not yet visible to observers in this country. Bright, He Says A Japanese scientist said he saw tne satellite by telescope, as it passed over Niigata, 160 miles j'orth northwest of Tokyo. He said it was "barely visible" though much brigater than he had expected Cambridge scientists said the satellite can be seen only in. the north and south polar regions, at present because of its relation to the earth and sun. They said it might become visible in other parts of the world if it changes direction in two or three weeks. How long ,it will continue to whirl tnrou?n the heavens in its north-south orbit was a subject of the greatest speculation. Estimates ranged from a few days to & million years. 2 Weeks Current A Soviet scientist attending a meeting in Washington said the batteries operating the ' satellite's automatic radio transmitter would last over two weeks. This scientist, Prof. A. A. Bla- igonravbv, said f he life span of the satellite is "uncertain, "but he said it should be visible in this country. "In view of the chosen orbit," be said, "the satellite every 24 Jiours will pass seven times over the. territory of the United States. "The possibility of visual observance is insured from the fact that it should be (of the brilliance) of a star between the fourth and rhe ninth magnitude." The White House described the United Fund Head Pleased With 1st Report Meeting Dale McNutt, chairman of the Cass County United Fund ^drive, said yesterday he was encouraged with the $15,764 in pledges reported at Friday's meeting at the Fifth street campaign -headquarters. Most firms are giving more than last year, and employes' donations have increased, McNutt said. He said with the increase of the goal this year, it is necessary for people to increase their donations and also more contributions if the $107,350 goal is reached, Cass county's quota this year is about 11 per cent higher than the quota for 1956. Concerning the budgets, Bob Hammonbree, UF .president, said all 12 budgets were carefully examined before they were approved, 'and said the .public can, be assur- red that no money will be spent that isn't absolutely necessary to carry on the services of those agencies. Hammontree said the budget committee was made up of businessmen who are familar with costs and operations and interested in keeping the budgets to a minimum. Fire Prevention Week — Oct. 6 to 12— will be marked in Logansport with surprise fire drills in the city schools, and open house at the local fire stations.

Tr/dUpwenf/y Played On Church; Loot, A Projector This'has the ear marks of a filthy trick. It could still be legitimate, but as of ^ late last night, there was no explanation except that it was a racket. A man called the Rev. M. L. Robinson, pastor of-the Baptist Temple, and introduced himself as "Dr. Roberts," who said he was to give a class for nurses at Memorial hospital and his'- movie projector had broken down. A nurse suggested, he said, that the Baptist Temple had one which might be borrowed for the evening. Rev. Robinson, in good faith, said he would be glad to help out. Someone was at the church. He would call and have the projector ready. The "doctor" said he would send a taxi. 'The taxi was sent, the projector obtained and delivered, the driver told police later, to a man at the door of the hospital. The man paid the bill and tipped the driver a quarter. That was at 5:30. Later in the evening, Rev. Robinson inquired through the hospital if the projector had been of service, only to find there. had been no meeting,- there is no Dr. Roberts known there, and no projector had been ' brought into tha building that they knew ,of. . . Rev.-Robinson then called police. Form ffomelnf ered But Nothing Missing A burglar entered the Lawrence Heathcoate residence on- route 5 city, sometime between 1:30-p.m. Friday and 9 a.m. Saturday, according to his report to the Cass county sheriff's department."

By JACK HAND MILWAUKEE (AP)—Tony Kubek, a 20-year-old Milwaukee boy, ruined his home town's first World Series game Saturday with two home runs in a sobering 12-3 New .York Yankee victory over the Braves. The rangy crewcut, who played five, positions for the Yanks in his rookie year but hit only three homers in 127 games, drove in four runs with his two blasts into th» right-field bleachers. Mickey Mantle also deepened the gloom with his ninth series homer, a 400-foot drive into the bullpen after Kubek singled in the fourth inning. Six Milwaukee pitchers, starting with Bob Buhl, eased the Yanks' was hit by a pitched ball, loading the bases. .'

Final Rites Monday For Weimer Boy Final rites for ,,3-year-old. Patrick Weimer, son of Mr; and Mrs.-Elton E. Weimer, of 1816 Silver street, who suffocated in a bedroom closet Friday afternoon after a bed caught fire, are scheduled for 10 a.m. Monday at the Broadway Methodist church. Rev.. Raymond Echols will officiate. The body will lie in state at the church an hour before the service. Burial will take place at Mt. Hope cemetery. Body is at Kroeger funeral home where frends may call. Dr. M. B. Stewart, county coro-. ner, said there will be an inquest into the death at 9 a.m. Tuesday .n his courthouse office. The. tot apparently ran into the closet to hide when his brother's bed started smouldering. Mrs. Weimer said she put the boy to bed for an afternoon nan before leaving the house. He was found by his father lying on his stomach in the closet "as though he had fallen asleep." Artifical respiration was given to the .victim by his father, ambulance men and firemen, but the boy was pronounced dead on arrival at Memorial hospital where he was brought by Chase-Miller ambulance. Little Patrick was in. the house alone when the fire started. Firemen and hospital authorities believe the child died from suffocation. Firemen also said the boy was not burned, but his hands and face were black from smoke. He was dressed wnen the tragedy occurred. . ' Child hi Bedroom Patrick was left in the bedroom while Mrs. Weimer and two small children drove to the high school to get a 14-year-old daughter, Sharon. Mr. Weimer said he was visiting a neighbor when his wife and- 1 children left the house about 1:45 p.m. He said he returned' and checked the house about 10 minutes after she left and "everything was all- right," but he said he didn't check the bedroom. The door was closed, Weimer, said. . , Fire was noticed by 'Mrs. Weimer. when • she . returned, .home from the stadium where she drove her daughter to band practice. Entering the house she,"saw smoke and screamed to her husband who was- working in-his garage at the rear of the house, Weimer said: . "When we went into the bedroom it was full of .-smoke. There was a small smouldering fire : in the center, of the*bed.-1 checked both beds, looking for the boy, then opened the window to get some air.' -. ' "I went outside to shut off the power, and returned to the room and started .feeling around the floor for Patrick.: Then . I found him in the open-closet." Given Artificial Respiration Weimer brought the boy outside ICootiouecLQQ Page 3B) Monticello Woman Dies In Hospital MONTICELLO —'Mrs. Hanna Oldin, 90, passed away at 1:45 Saturday afternoon at White county Memorial hospital here where she had been a patient since last Monday when she fell at home and suffered a broken hip.

Aaron Hits One Henry Aaron whose two-run homer rekindled hopes in the fifth by making Uie score 7-3, left eight Braves on base The National started this wild scoring splurge. . He hit Buhl's third pitch into the •right-Meld seats in the very first inning. Walks to Mantle and Yogi Berra and a wild pickoff throw by Buhl set up another, run on Gil Mo Dougaid's sacrifice fly that Aaron finally caught on his knees after League homer and runs4>atted-ijii* tumblill g- Harry Simpson, first of champ-failed.with three on in the second and sixth and two on in the first.. Bob Turley wa-s almost as ineffective as Buhl in this heralded duel of bullei-throwing righthand- ers. He walked, foui and allowed •three hits before Casey Stengel brought in Don Larsen in the second. Larsen pitched as though he were still throwing that perfect game of 1956^ He blew down the first seven Braves he faced, run- tliree Yank first basemen, drove home Berra with the third run of that big -fir-st inning on a single off Red Schoend'enst's glove. Adcock Fanned Milwaukee had men on first and secona with none out and loaded the bases with two out in the first but Turley got off the hook by throwing a third strike past Joe Adcock. The Braves didn't let Turley escape for long. A walk to Hazle, Del Rice's dienst's single and Schoen- produced a quick 34 consecutive before Johnny Logan hit a two-strike single to center in the fifth. Aaron then came along, with his homer, but that was all. Fails With Bases Full , The tig ""fellow, whom .his Yankee mates call Gooney Bird, 'wobbled briefly in the sixth when two singles and a walk loaded the bases but Jerry Lumpe threw out Aaron on a close play to snuff out the threat. A. total of 19 walks by the six Milwaukee pitchers and two Yanks set 'a series record The old mark was 16, set by the Yankees and Giants, Oct. 2, 1936; However, the Yank staff walked 11 Dodgers just a year ago Saturday in the jongest nine-inning series game ever played — 3 hours and 26 minutes.

Two more Yank runs came across in the third off Juan Pi- 2arro, the .'20-year-old Puerto Rd-can southpaw who had relieved:, itarter Buhl in the first.
