Phone 2-2-5-2 Dr. Muller Says U.S. Must Step Up Space Program BLOOMINGTON (UP> — Dr. Hermann J. Muller, Indiana Uni- versityls Nobel prize winning geneticist, said Tuesday night "if we don't get busy" we may discover when we visit other planets that the inhabitants speak Russian. Muller was the key speaker i at an I.U. public forum on space travel. • "Space flight is upon us," he said, "But I don't think h will relieve the threat of world overpopulation." Muller predicted life on other worlds will be different from that on Earth, but that animals will have comparable organs such as eyes, ears and stomachs. ""The really fantastic thing would be to find people there," he said, "or people speaking English. However, if we don't get busy, we might find them speaking Russian." John B. Irwin, T.U. astronomer, expressed doubt that space travel will ever be achieved. He hacked up that contention with examples ox the many difficulties which have to be overcome and the e'normous distances of space. Surviving besides his wife are two sons, Melvin C., Iron River, Wise.; and Ora L., St. Louis, Mo.; a daughter, Mrs. Edna Wilkinson, Indianapolis; four grandchildren and six great grandchildren.
