It also supports the Western disarmament proposals made during the United Nations subcommittee talks in London. • On the Middle East situation, the foreign ministers of Turkey, Greece and Great Britain were among the speakers. The foreign ministers' session agreed that while'the Middle East is outside the NATO orbit, the alliance still should feel "responsible' for it by at least aiding middle east countries economically.

James said he was unable to sleep so he went to the station at 5 a.m. As he drove up he noticed a car with' Howard county license plates and two youths prying on the back door of the station with a pry. bar. When they saw him the youths dropped the pry bar, jumped in their car and drove away with their lights off. James pursued the other car as far as the Cicott street bridge, where the driver finally turned flight and this time it appeared to have been a success.- After emerging from heavy clouds the Alias, a thing of impressive beauty, zoomed into the blue "nigh in the sun-kissed skies. The 90-foot Atlas, trailing a tni! of orange flame, was clearly visible to beach observers long after it broke from its earthly confines, seemingly with reluctance in its slow departure, and departed on its course down the Atlantic tracking range. There was no earth satellite 'in this missile, which still is being tested purely as a military move. But the possibility arose that the Atlas, with a range believed to be his lights on and the filling sta- \ around 5.000 miles, may be con- lion proprietor was able to read; verted for carrying a U.S. moon the-number on the license plate.

A. check with Kokomo police brought toe information lhat the youth who owns the car has a previous police record. James said the youths who ran from the station were between 17 and 19 years of age. One was about 5 feet, 9 inches and the other about 6 feet in-height. They weighed between 145 and 160 pounds. He found that they had slashed the rear 'screen door in order to open it so they could pry on the door. It was the second time burglars had visited the James service station in 48 hours. Three local youths admitted breaking into it at the same hour Sunday morning.

Rain Today in Most of Indiana By UNITED PRESS The weatherman dished up rain for Indiana today and indications letters on Saturday when they first conferred for about two hours.

Holmes cut $5 off the requests for $125 additional for the salaries of the Boone and Harrison should other missiles prove incapable of orbiting a Satellite. J.R. Dempsey, manager of the astronautics division of Convair, makers of the Atlas, said In Washington he believes the missile could put, a hah" ton satellite into orbit in a year after getting a government go-ahead. Dempsey said he expects Con- vair to get a satellite order soon. The Atlas was glearr.in.' white just before it was triggered. It stood on its pad with its blunt nose skyward, waiting for the firing button to be pressed in a thick concrete blockhouse nearby. When the button was pushed,, a huge cloud of gray smoke rose up around the slim, blunt-nosed giant' and it looked for a few seconds as if the "bird" had exploded on its pad. But the missile then thrust out its orange tail of flame from beneath it and rose slowly skyward. Air Force Plans WASHINGTON (UP (-Secretary of Air James H. Douglas said today the Air Force expects to have an operational intercontinental ballistic missile within two years. Douglas said the Air Force will have an operational unit of intermediate range missiles by December, 1958. "I hope it will not be a year after that date" when the -ICBM will be in operation, Douglas told the Senate Preparedness subcommittee. Douglas also said the United States has a rocket engine, supplemented by a second stage booster, strong enough to put a 1,000-pound eartii satellite into orbit. However, he admitted urjder questioning, the only tests so far have not been successful.
