Rawson Bennett, chief of naval research, said the misfiring of the Vanguard satellite rocket on Dec. 6 did not point to faulty design or engineering. Bennett said the mishap would not cause any "very significant delay" in this country's effort to get a satellite into an orbit around the globe. He said that the failure traced to "a component in the first stage, which worked so perfectly before." ' He referred to a successful test Oct. 23 in which a prototype of ,the first stage rocket was checked. "* Bennett said in a speech to the Fort Wayne chapter of the American Institute of Electrical Engineers that the failure "simply proved something that all rocket and missile men know—that the state of'the art does not yet guarantee reliable performance every time." "This is why the series of tests' were planned before sending i/p the first satellite," he said. "There will be no very significant delay, j and I am confident that Vanguard will achieve its stated objective." The target date is next .March, although there have been hopes that a small test satellite may be thrown into an orbit earlier.
