The storm has 'been building up fr>r months. But the thunder became intense only recently when two teenage Korean girls were shot by U.S. guards at' the Kunsam Air Base some -100 miles south of here. Both iJio Korean' government and top- level U.S: military autihorditees are carrying out intensive investaga- tims into the incident. The Korean press has used tihe "incident to splash its sharpest criticism of U.S. troops in some--tame. And one top Korean official accused tihe U.S. .troops of harboring "racial contempt" for the Koreans _thi s coming at a time when the Little Rock integration riots were top-head news here. Incidents Become Important A series of so-called "minor" in- cakJenibs ait -the air base haw added fuel to the fire, incidents invoflwanig attacks by Air Force sentry dogs on Korean vilages. Rejporte indicate norae of'the incidents resulted in serious injury and .probably would not be signfficant if taken eilpme. However, tied in wd-th tfi sbootning of tihe wo girls and sev eral previous incidents in other areas," they become, increasingly Important. The basic reason for the press criticism is the steadily growing pressure for a status of forces agreement between tihe U.S. and Konea. • The incaident Wiat kicked off tihe controversy and started the first Sharp oritidsm occurred last May, but the case involving the two girls occurred- Sunday, Sep. 15. The girls, Kkn Yang Yi, 18, and Kong Rum Sun 17, were struck by bullets fired by two Air Force .guards on duty at a bomb dump einea at'the base. MSLtaiy spokesmein sadd the gjris were paint of a tfroup of some seven or eight persons in the area who fled when the -guards attempted to apprahend them for questioning. When the girls failed to halt, the guards' fired into lihe group, one of the bullets striking M i s s Kim in tihe' temple and anoitiher striking MDBS Yang in the amm. Miss Kk.i has been listed in "ait- ical" condition. . . Korean press reports aaoki the girls were cubbing weeds outside file fenced4n area when the guamis yelled at ten causing them to flee. Say Relations Good Both Korean and U.S. authorities say relations between the vnl- itagems amd troops at Kunsan and in every other area aine good-. They point out that the Korean people are now beginning to assert their Independence for lihe first time since the end of hosiiMities. _ The enmity between Japan and Korea is one of the basic reasons for a status of forces agreement, -according to .one highly .informed source. The source said the U.S. has a status of forces agreement with Japan, while Korea, as well as Formosa and "The Pihiappines, are trea'ted as "'country cousins," Official feeling among both Ametnican and Korean officials is that itfae situiatiion as it now stamds is not likely to^get out of hand and develop into a critical sitoaition.

By ALTON L BLAKESLEE i AP Science Report e r PITTSBURGH UB-Science has erfected an astonishing new jail 1 . R puts a single molecule of gas nto solitary confinement. That's quite a'feat considering hat you draw in some 10 sextil- ion molecules of gas with every ueath. Even the most perfect man- •nade vacuums still contain about lalf a mallioni molecules for every ubic inch of gas. Outer space may be abcut as nearly crowded with molecules of gas that go vhizzing about, continuously }umping into one another at high- peed travel. With the new scientific jail, you :an in efifec 1 hold a gas in your hand. The individual" gas molecules ire trapped inside tiny, invisible cages" of .crystal material. It's done through a process known as clatlhratin.?'' — from the Greek meaning lattice—'being developed jy Dr. Ger'iard SprenigJing and )r. Lyon Mandelcorn, chemists he Westinghouse Research Lab- oratories here. ' • Can Study Behavior Clathratiag permits scientists to study the individual behavior of a single mo.'eeule of a gas, inert and isolated from all its companions. The study can produce fundamental knowledge, and even- unusual practical applications on some tomoTow. Isolated sag molecules can behave quite differently than when 1 they are in a big mob7 Oxygen molecules ordinarily are very active, eager to combine chemically with many other materials. In mob action, oxygen molecules produce 'burning and rusting, Dr. Sprengling said. But jailed in clathrate cells, they aan't get together to do this. Each stays chemically .inactive. One future .possibility : is that oxygen might be trapped this way inside ; the fuel for rockets. The rocket.wouldn't have to carry separate . tanks for the fuel and the oxygen witl -which it must combine to produce power.. Can Be Freed The trapped molecules inside each cell can be set free by burn- the crystalline material, or by dissolving it. A clathrate is made by com- billing two chemicals so that one becomes ph/sically trapped inside the crystal structure.of the other. Atoms and molecules of a crystal are grpayed in a, regular pattern, with spaces between, Dr. Sprengling explains. Molecules of the second material become trapped inside the. space's as the crystal is formed The'spaces or cages in the crystal have to be i?.rge enough 60 hold, the gas molecule, out tignt- enough so it can't cape through the "bars." A gas molecule can move about inside its 'cage, but not get out. It doesn't combine- chemically with the crystal material. Clabhirates can capture solid, liquid, or gas molecules. New York—'Radioactive fall-out is not hurting fish. Sports fishermen and people who"'eat fish can relax. So writes Chet Sobsey in a magazine, The Fisherman, after, studying reports and surveys' from entasis and other, officials. Fall-out , is radioactive atoms created by atomic or H-bomb Wasts This "hot" atomic dust can and does float around the world, felling ultkurtely "upon land, plants, humans, streams, lakes 3md oceans. Sobsey points out that long-term effects of fali-out on human life is still being argued. Some experts think the amount to date is safe or inconsequential, others are worried and urge an end to atomic tests. But specificalliy concerning fish, "there can be. Jittie argument" toat fish will survive fall-out from atomic tests,- Sobsey says. Only, infinitestmal amounts of radioactivity have been. measured in lakes or streams'even near the test sites, he writes And, he says, these studies show fish absorb only a tiny amount of radioac- vive fall-out, and that, no adverse effects on the fish have been noted.

Broadway Dial 3637 By HENRY SHAPIRO United Press, Staff Correspondent MOSCOW lUP)-Soviet scientists vho carried man into the age of space flight -Saturday set their goal as the moon "in a few years." Radio Moscow in a domestic broadcast- beamed also to the Western world, hniled the launch- nig of the Soviet satellite Friday as a - "t r i u m p h of the Soviet regime," but concentrated on feats yet to come in the conquering of outer space. ..--...' Prof. Kirill Stanyukovicih, a Soviet expert on jet propulsion and member- of the interdepartmental commission 011 interplanetary communications, was quoted as saying :hat the launching of the 22.8-inch, ized by the Moscow announcement that at 10:30 a.m. c.s.t. it was due c<ver Detroit. One minute later, it .was idue over Washington, B.C. The radio* said 'as of 1:46 a.m., Moscow time-4:46 p.in. c.s.t. Fri- day_{jhe satellite, a shining, radio- ]aden metal globe twice the size of- a baske'ball, had circled th« earth 6% times. A steady '-'beep" emitted from its radio equipment, pkked.up by amateur radio v stations, "moon- watcher" listening' posts established for tht 1957 - 58 Inter- ' national Ge;>phy£icai Year, ; and the big commercial radio statiom the world over. ' Western Scientists Guessing The . signal appeared faint in some areas : strong in others. They .sphere into an orbit 560 . miles above Uie earth was but the first step in the campaign to reach the. moon. t "It can be said with confidence were coming to earth on micro- of 20.005 and COMMUNICATIONS BLAMED One and one-half million, persons perished from famine in Bengal, India, during 1943, primarily because of poor communication, according to the Encyclopedia Britannica. that in-a few, years flights to the moon with instruments' will become-as much a reality- as the launching of tihe first artificial satellite," he said. Predict More Rockets IBs remarks were echoed in P-aris by Russian-born space stir entist Alexander Ananov who said that "in the very near future," missiles will be made that can reach the moon. Ananov said it actually was harder to ihurl the satellite into its 18,000 m.p.h. trajectory in space than to fire a rocket to the.moon. 9 And he predicted that 'tihe Russians, with their edge over the United States, would be firing rockets carrying animals to the moon by the tame the United States, makes its first moon-missile tests." Staflyukovieb hailed Friday, Oct. 4, as the day when "man created an artificial body able to rotate around the earth at great height, when man created an artificial earth satellite, "These men were- Soviet scientists, engineers and technicians," he said. "This' is a^great triumph not only of Soviet science but also of the Soviet regime." Circles Globe in 36 Minutes Soviet authorities gave credit to ihe theories drawn up 60 years ago by 19th Century Russian visionary Konstantin Tsiulkovsky and hailed him 'as'- the "father" of. space .flight :' . • The Soviet radio was filled with 'details 'and reports on the satellite steadily circling the globe in one complete-rotation that takes exactly 1 hour, 36.2 minutes, according to Soviet calculations. Its speed could be better visual- 40.00 megacycles. How long, it would stay in its orbit was a problem that had Western scientists guessing. "Some said two to three weeksl Otheri said >t could stay up'years. When it slows down and sinks into the earth's atmosphere, it will burn like a cinder and vanish— having performed its work in giving man his first tantalizing glimpse, through its electronic signals, of space. Western scientists, without ran* cor, -gave due credit to the proficiency of Soviet scientists and technicians. In Washington. American"" officials said thty planned to fire a satellite next spring. They said the Soviet satellite "did not come as any surprise." Jiust how it was fired was anyone's guess. Some Western authorities believed it was. thrown from the earth with a version of the Soviet intercontinental ballistics missile.
