PAOH TWH1TB BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.)' COURIER NEWB MONDAY, FEBRUARY 28, 1955 " Navy to Launch Missle-Carrying Cruisers Soon By ELTON C. FAT WASHINGTON (AP) — The Navy expects to have the first of two guidcd-missile-firing cruisers ready for antiaircraft duty with the fleet next July, the second late this year. Completion of the project to con-* ~~ " vert the heavy cruisers Boston and Canberra presumably will make the American fleet the first of any world power to possess operationally useful guided missile ships. Britain announced last week it intends to begin building a fleet of such warships but it may be some time before they are ready for use. Too Far In Future In 1946, the U. S. Navy announced that the battleship Kentucky and Hie 27,000-ton baule cruiser Hawaii would be built into guided missile ships. Conversion work was started, (lien halted within a year. One reason, actually the primary cause, was that the Navy discovered the development of practical guided missiles was too far in the future to allow design of ships for their use. It was not until 1952 that the Navy again took up the project actively, sending the Boston and Canberra to the New York Shipbuilding Corp. yards at Camden. N. J.. for extensive remodeling into robot weapon ships. Anti-Aircraft Protection A Navy spokesman said, in answer to a question today, that the Boston is expected to be ready in July and the Canberra probably about December. The two cruisers, at least initial- fir, will be used entirely for antiaircraft protection of Navy task forces, using the Terrier guided missile weapon. The Terrier, in mass production for more than a year, is fire from launching racks.

Main College Leaders Blast Yale Prexy Idea on Enrollments Termed Rubbish by Leading Educators CHICAGO Wr — A panel of top American college educators assailed as, "nonsense" and "rubbish" today the idea expressed by the president of Yale that colleges must keep enrollments down to prevent "dilution" of education. The educators, here for the 10th National Conference on Higher Education, were asked by an Associated Press reporter to discuss college opportunities for young people. They centered their fire on Dr. A. Whitney Griswold, head of Yale, who in a Feb. 18 speech said he did not think Yale should let itself get any more than 10 per cent bigger. President Francis H. Horn of Pratt Institute, Brooklyn, N. Y., said: "This is sheer nonsense unless you admit that Yale or Princeton already has a diluted form of education ... I think they still have a highly selective group.
