Ten Oof si anting Can iers Honorerf by Logansport Newspapers Prepare Jo Mote A staggering set of figures- Is presented George G. Vaughan, manager of the Logansport office of the Indiana Employment Security Division, as he briefed his staff for observance of Employ the Physically Handicapped Week, October 6 to 12. "In this nation," he pointed out, "about 250,000 men and women are added to the ranks of the handicapped each year. That's in addition to the millions of us who are already physically impaired in some way or another." "Traffic accidents alone annually account for some 40,000 disabling injuries," Vaughan said, adding that a combination of illness, industrial, farm, and home accidents, and congenital causes account for the remainder. He estimated that some 15 per cent of the job seekers looking for work here in Logansport each year have some degree of physical disability. Vaughan said that modern methods of refiabiliiatiou and growing emphasis on such service returns more and more physically handicapped persons to the labor market each year. "We can't deem them completely rehabilitated though," he continued, "until they have' jobs in gainful employment." In 1956, a total of 6,1667 non agricultural jobs were filled by handicapped applicants referred toy Division offices. About 50 per cent of the placements were of disabled veterans; The agency's emphasis on selective placement techniques results in referring applicants to jobs where their training and ability can be utilized and to which their physical capacities are suited.

WASHINGTON W—The Supreme Court opens a new term Monday to face sharply:" contested legal issues involving racial segregation olid-.Communist activities. Satellite... (Continued from Paige I ; ) ellites .was to. be shared by all, according to advance plans. Moscow radio reported the satellite was" launched into its orbit yesterday. K was described as 23 inches in diameter and weighing 185 pounds, eight times the weight of planned U. S. satellites. The Russian announcement gave the vehicle's speed as ^18,000 <rn.ip.Ji. but did not specify the launching site. U. S. experts figured the site was north of the Cas-. plan Sea. Dr. Homer Newell of the U. S. Satellite Project said the announced Wieight of the Russian vehicle indicates the Soviets must have the intercontinental ballistic missile which they say they have test fired. Reports Likely Condition Reports that the satellite was transmitting coded information, in addition to its regular tracking signals, came from Dr. John W. Towrisend of the U.^S. Naval Research Laboratory and Dr. Henry L. Riichte, J.- of Dhe OaMfonia Institute of Technology, Dr. Richter said in Pasadena that code signals were intercepted Friday might on special equipment.' "Unless the Russians give us a clue we may not "be able to decipher the messages," toe said. In Washington, Dr.' Towns-end also said the'..satellite's radio tracking signals "are being varied in a way that indicates to us that ^scientifitc—uinlanmabi'Oin is being transmitted." Towmsend and Riehter botili sale this information migiht have to do with temperatures encountered in the .satellite's space flight. Radio, signals from the miam- raiade moim were being picked up in Russia, Britain, Canada and Japan as well as in,this country. (toe pickup by a Radio Corp. of Anaerica station on. Long Island indicated the satellite passed almost directly over New York City around 8:50 a.m. BDT Saturday. British radio monitors.said,the satellite's signals had been growing progressively weaker. after reaching a peak at 7' a.m. Dr. Fred L. Whipple, director of .the ..Smithsonian Laboratory at Cambridge, said the Russian •nioon was launched at .an angle that carried it out of range of the "moonwatch stations" set up to .track satellites visualy. A Cambridge astronomer, who dealined use of his name, said it was 'obvious the Russian's chose the sum plane angle deliberately in order to thwart observation , by ?dentists outside fee Iron Curtain, In Philadelphia, Dr. I. M. Levitt, director of the Franklin, said stitute's Feels Planetarium, said ;he baby - moon could remain in the sky. "a thousand or a mfflion vears and .-there is nothing man can 'do to.bring it down." ' Dr. Levitt said that when the satellite does begin'to fall it will do so gradually over a great period of time until it drops back into ;he earth's : atmosphere and is juirmed up.in the same way as a meteor.
