Six Logansport, Indiana, Fharos-Tribaw U. S. Missile Argument Becomes a Bit Muddled By LYLE C. WILSON United Press Staff Correspondent WASHINGTON (UP)— There is an Alice in Wonderland quality about the missile discussion, at least to the extent that it becomes curiouser and curiouser. Dr. Werhner Von Braun, for example, revealed under congressional questioning that orders to proceed with a major missile project had not been followed up with an allotment of money with which to get going. The proceed order came about a fortnight ago and was widely publicized. What purpose the order and the attending publicity might have had is not evident, .un- lesc it was intended to quiet the Report on Progress of Seaway MILWAUKEE (UP) — The administrator of the St. Lawrence Seaway Corp. has predicted that the American side of the project will be completed "on schedule" by July 1. Lewis G. Castle, Dululh, Minn. said that, in addition, the 14-foot depth, of the channel will be increased to 27 feet by the spring of 1959. . . , , ,, - • -, In a talk before the World Af- TS- anx.ety abou the missile f * l R Mond ni ht Castle said _ sWps have using the Canadian locks, but after July l will switch to the American side Then, he said, work on "a new nest of locks" west of Cornwall Ont., will be started. Toll rates, Castle said, will be "acceptable to users" but high enough to pay construction costs "With all these favorable fac tors and trends so plainly eviden today, no crystal balls are re quired to recognize that the St Lawrence Seaway will prove to be a great stimulus to our national economy," Castle said.

Interesting, too, was a sequence of statements made by William M. Holaday, the Pentagon missile chief. A bit more than a week ago Holaday told a New York audience that the United States could put. satellites into orbit, like a Sputnik, "whenever we want to." A New Interpretation Came last Friday and Holaday appeared before the Senate Preparedness subcommittee. Under questioning Holaday put his own interpretation on "whenever we •want to." The United States couldn't put a satellite in orbit tomorrow, for example. The missile chief said it would take time to assemble the component parts of the launching missile. It developed that the only substance behind Holaday's brave statement in New York was that there do exist at Cape Canaveral, Fla., rockets capable of putting a satellite into orbit. Holaday's testimony seemed a bit optimistic to tho questioning senators. Like the order to proceed given to Dr. Von Braun, Holaday's New York speech was part sugar pill and there is some congressional clamor now to replace him in the Expressway on the Indianapolis Deaths in News Says Farms Will Shrink In Number WASHINGTON (UP)—A panel of farm college experts said today the nation's farms will shrink in „ — _ .... _.. number and grow in size' in the I Ohio. The chain now has 21 stores By UNITED PRESS MIAMI BEACH, Fla. — Jacob Kline, 73, president of a chain of Midwest department stores, died at a hospital here Sunday after a long illness. He founded Kline Brothers Co., in 1913 in Lorain, Overrule Bid By Smith, Peak For New Trial INDIANAPOLIS (UP) — Special Judge Walter Pritchard today overruled motions for a new trial of former Indiana highway chairman Virgil (Red) arr.ith and Milan attorney Robert Peak. Both were convicted about six weeks ago on charges of conspiracy to embezzle public funds in connection with the sale of two back lots along the Madison Ave. missile job. Whatever may have south-side. been the motive behind the foregoing incidents, very few if any persons would believe or suggest that there was anything other than the utmost sincerity in President Eisenhower's best-publicized pronouncement o-n the missile-satellite issue. Apprehension Not Raised He made it on Oct. 9, five days ^fter the Soviet Union launched Sputnik the first. To a news conference question, the President re- s p o n d e d that the successful launching of a Communist satellite did not raise his apprehensions "one iota" about national security. That became the administration party line, precisely followed by White House spokesmen thereafter until Oct. 16, when Vice President Richard M. Nixon warned in a San Francisco speech against a bn-sh-off of the importance to the United States of the Sputniks. "A grim and timely reminder" of the great magnitude of the Soviet Union's scientific and industrial capacity, Nixon called the Sputniks. Since wars are won or lost now largely on the muasure of scientific and industrial capacity, Nixon's warning seemed to possess a grave bearing on national security. Last week Lt. Gen. James M. Gavin, chief of Army research, gave the senators a professional soldier's judgment. He said the launching of Sputnik I was "perhaps the most significant military thing in our time." The voters will suck no sugar off of that one. They may, even, be tiring of sweets. Pritchard said he found "no reversible error as a basis for a new trial" in his study of a 42- page "motion by defense attorneys Frank Symmes and Arthur Payne. The defense cited numberous trial "errors" in its brief. The defendants, sentenced to 2-14 year prison terms but free on appeal bond, now have 90 days to lodge an appeal with the Indiana Supreme Court. years ahead. Professors from agricultural colleges in all major farmi:. 0 regions agreed on this outlook in &• discussion before an agriculture subcommittee of the Congressional Economic Committee. The shift in farm numbers and size is not likely to reduce sur- pius production, said Earl 0. Heady of Iowa State College. But the remaining farmers will operate j more efficiently and profitably, he predicted. George Montgomery of Kansas State College said the trend toward bigger farms also threatens the government's effort to control wheat production through planting allotments. With Great Plains wheat farms growing steadily larger, Montgomery said, there are indications that more farmers will choose to plant above their federal -acreage allotment and "assume the risk of a lower price." in Ohio, Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Iowa and Wisconsin. NEW YORK — Dr. Earl T. Engle, 61, a leading authority on human fertility, died Tuesday in his office oE an internal hemorrhage. Engle was professor of anatomy at Columbia University's College of Physicians and Surgeons. Wednesday Evening, December 18, 1957, Set Shortage Of Earl Kieser At $300,000 INDIANAPOLIS (UP)—The Indiana State Board of Accounts late Tuesday issued its third and last report which showed that shortages charged to former Perry County Treasurer Earl Kieser amounted to more than $300,000. Kieser now is serving a 2-14 year term in Indiana State Prison for embezzlement. . Included in the latest audit was $35,715 which Kieser's office listed as delinquent state property taxes but which actually had been paid, and sale of $200 worth of intangibles tax stamps which Kieser failed to report to the State Revenue Division. Kieser was treasurer from 1949 to 1957 when auditors uncovered falsified bank records. The board's original audit showed a shortage of $235,S76, and a .second report added $15,649. That added up to a grand total of $307,440, the biggest shortage by far ever uncovered by the accounts board.
