"Little Henry," is being hailed by aviation experts as the poor man's Wide Blue Yonder. Engineers who are familiar with the extreme simplicity of this new flying gadget, built by McDonnell Aircraft Corp., St. Louis, claim it can at last bring aviation to the average man. Air Force spokesmen predict the new McDonnell Jet rotor blade makes possible ft personal alrcrait which could oe made to sell for less than hull the cost of the average new automobile. In addition to having nil the obvious advantages of the ordinary helicopter, an aircraft with a jet rotor can be made extremely light, easy to operate, cheap to run nnd maintain ,aml free of most of the other bugs In private Hying. The. operating principle of the now jet helicopter rotor is the same, as that of an ordinary spinning lawn sprinkler.

(UP) — The United States lias warned Bulgaria and Yugoslavia thai, recognition ol Ihc new Greek rebel government "would be clearly contrary to the principles of the United Nations character," the State Department announced yesterday. Bulgaria and Yugoslavia arc Soviet -satellite countries which border on Greece. The warnings followed a sternly- corded statement Issued by Acting Secretary of State Robert A. Lovett on Dec. 30.

U.S. Science Foundation Bill Again Introduced WASHINGTON, Jnn. 8 (UP) — Rep. J. Percy Priest, D.. Tcnn., has Introduced another version of last year's vetoed bill to establish n national science foundation. The organization would direct scientific research for the government. The bill varied somewhat from the similar one vetoed Inst year by President Tniman. Other legislative introduced nl the first session of the new Congress included: . Rep. James Domengcaux, D., Ln. —To provide thnt the federal government give up Its rights to tidewater lands out to the three-mile ocean limit and lann beneath navigable rivers. The Supreme Court ruled last year that the federal government has paramount rlgh*.s of ownership to land of the California coast between tidewater and the three-mile limit. Lonoke Man Bonders Race "or Governor LITTLE ROCK. Ark,. Jan. 8. (UP) James M. Mulone, former Ixmoke oiinty judge and a 1M6 cnndldnie or tlie Democratic nomination foi 1 overnor, announced today he hail enl out "feeler" letters to Arkan- cltizens prior lo innkini; any \unouuccmcnt on ht.s ,|iosstbly can- rtidacy later llils year.

"I asked the people which mini they would rnlher have In Hit |;ov- ernor'.s chair for the next- two years/' Malone said. He recently completed a tour of various Arkansas towns which he described as a "trial balloon." Malone said he probably would make no dellnitc tinnouncenienl be- lovc Jan. 19, the dale on which Gov. Ben Laney has promised to reveal his future plans. He added", however, that "I'll have a statement to muke shortly after that lime." family man with his own brand ol handling juvenile delinquents. When Mrs. Hubert Manning complained that two boys had scattered broken glass In the neighborhood. Beach rounded up the culprits—aged nine nnd five. The boys confessed expecting the worst In juvenile court. Beach gave them three minutes to get a broom and start sweeping. The boys did an extra good job of sweeping the sidewalk and street. "Next time yon go to court," Bcnci wnrned. Then to Mm.

Most of the Hdvnnlngc of Ihc jet rotor results because It oliiui- nates the need for Ihe liruvy. corn- predicted Hint the craft's speed can sear.s and transmissions bo greatly increased, The whirling rotor .swings in \\\ art only 13 feet, in di.imeter.

At this -speed the r-mLs of Ihe blades arc traveling GuO mph. It is plicated which turn the rotor on conventional nclicoptcrs, With the power actually on the end or the rotor blades themselves, there is no need lor the heavy, complicated gear arrangement Hence there is the amazing saving of weight. "Little Henry," which Is only a makeshift rig to test the rotor, weighs 310 pounds. The lightest commercial helicopter weighs 1035 pounds. The jnt rotor makes a helicopter easier to operate. Without all the complicated gears the pilot can Ittt the rotor easily with a simple steering bar fastened directly to the ro- to" mechani.'in. The jet rotor eliminates torniw— the tendency of the rotor in the conventional helicopter to turn the fiisclngc iti the opposite direction of the valor. This cllnnmUcs the need lor a small, rear vertical rotor with it.s complicated mechanism. The only control surface for the pilot lo operate, besides the overhead r °| tor, is the small rudder.

A spin with the pilot's nnu is enough to start it and it doesn't make any difference how cold the During the first b\si.s mily tiny fuel tanks have been u.seil. Larger tanks will give it "a IOIIK practical range" according to a McDonnell official. And the jet device is bcins uttered so that ordinary yasolinu will run it. i No thought yet has been given to ci(•siijiiinR a fuselage for -'Little Henry" which explains why it. looks like something out of the Wright Broihcrs' shop, McDonnell's contract with the Air Force only calls for .successful development of UK; rotor blade. Giving It a streamlined body, however, is a simple matter. J S. McDonnell, Jr., pioneer aviator and president of the McDonnell Aircraft Corp., Isn't saying yet, exactly what he plans to do In the way of mass-producing cheap jet helicopters for the man-in-theft reel. But it is believed unlikely that he will ignore the trcmendoi market for such a flying device. McDonnell's company now supplies the Navy with most of its jet fighters, the speedy Bfinshce and the phantom. Ho is the only aviation company which has steadily Ejrown since the war. His eagerness I lo accept new ideas i.s considered his greatest, asset. McDonnell calls "Little Henry" his flying motorcycle. It could very cosily mean to aviation what the Ford "flivver" meant to the automobile industry.
