OCT. M. IMI BLl DU.VAJLI (ARK.) PAGE THRBl Experts Disagree On When to Expect Travel Into Space 20MisscoMen Are Inducted Delinquents Worned; 40 to Be Sent for Exams Thursday SMITH By ALTON L. BLAKESLEE NEW YORK Oft— A modern Co- himbus predicted today that man will go sailing through space in -only 10 to 15 years--but another 'rocket expert says we're nowhere n«ar it. The go-slow on space travel ^dreams was sounded by Wilson W. Rosen, director of the Viking rocket project, Naval Research Laboratory in a prepared speech. He was a speaker for the second iiympostum on space travel held by the Hnyden Planetarium ot the American Museum of Natural History. Rosen declared he has R "down- to-earth attitude about space travel "after six years" work at the ACHESON (Continued from Page 1> White Sands proving grounds In New Mexico. There, rockets have been shot to heights of 136 miles and 250 miles. But, he says, we don't know enough about lots of things to send men in rockets to explore and travel through space with any real degree of safety. Another expert declared that in 10 to 15 years—if we really tried it—we could have a man - made satellite whizzing around the earth at an altitude of 1,075 miles, with 80 to 100 humans aboard it. The authority is Dr. Wernher von Braun, technical director of (he O. S. guided missiles development group at Huntsvllle, Ala. Prom this satellite, he said, we could take off In rockets to the moon or elsewhere in space. He added: Telescopes on the satellite could take pictures of any part of the earth "and pull up any iron curtain" through ability lo see another nation's secrets. Guided missiles one on mere suspicion. ! He also revealed that a New York grand jury had called a number of American U. N. personnel and said he had asked the U. S. gov- ernmeqt to tell him of any of his employes refusing lo answer questions about their activities outside the U. N. Lie added the U, S. government hadn't answered him yet. "Must Co-operate" J Tho secretary-general distributed a circular to the Americans on his staff today, warning them they must co-operate with the Mc- Cavran committee if they are called, and cannot plead U. N. immunity on any questions covering their private activities now or before (hey were employed by the U. N. The space satellite could be a great deterrent to war, he said. He suggested sUtdies starting now to create rockets to carry materials into space and build this space platform. Rosen declared that almost nothing would "do more harm to this country's defense effort, and to the cause of space flight itself than for ihe United States to undertake any one of the fantastic projects for a space ship that has been proposed in the last few years." The space ship project would take too.many scientists and materials and money from other defense projects, he said. We just don't have the basic knowledge to go ahead right now and huild such a ship, he declared. "We must not allow ourselves to be frightened into attempting s;Mce flight prematurely," he said. Twenty men were sent to Little Rock today for induction into the Army by the Mississippi County Draft Board. Miss Rosa Sallba, clerk, said today. Out of an induction call for 26 oien, 17 reported, seven transferred to other boards, two failed to report, two reported from- other boards and one delinquent reported. Forty men are scheduled to report for re-examination Thursday, Miss Saliba said. She also listed persons who were ordered for Immediate Induction as delinquents but have failed to report. They will he turned over to federal authorities if they do not contact the board, she warned. They are Richard Prestone Stone of Uixora and the following Negroes: Ray Jackson and Claude Lewis, Jr.. both of Blytheville. Joe Jones of Clarkdalc and Lcroy Jones Jr., of St. Joseph, Mich.

Cotronwood Point Youth Wins Cooter Cotton Contest; Steel Girl Is Queen STEVENSON (Continued from Page 1) leer workers indicate there is a wave of desertions from Eisenhower's cause. He said that "I Used lo Like Ike" groups were being formed because of "disillusionment" with the general's campaign tactics. This "disillusionment," h R said, is "based on the compromises, the shifts of position and the abandonment of principles that they felt before were emphatically held by him," Gov. Stevenson, In a radio speech sponsored by volunteers seeking $5 contributions for his campaign, said he was deeply concerned over the high costs ot campaigning. "The financial requirements are entirely too large/' he said over the American Broadcasting Company network last night. It sometimes leads to "temptation to concentrate on large donations," which] "does not always serve the public Interest," he said. lie called the campaign for $5 donations a "particularly healthy" way of meeting the costs because donois would "ask in return only faithful public service." The governor praised BeardsEey Ruml, Democratic finance chairman, who originated the $5 donation program. Ruml also spoke from New York, giving details of the ffind-raising effort. \Vyatt was enthusiastic about Ihe results of President Truman's whistle-stopping attacks on the Republicans as "isolationists" end i Eisenhower was a captive of the ~ GOP Old Guard, a view Stevenson repeatedly has voiced. "I think the results (of the Truman trip) have been extremely favorable for the Democratic tick et—for Gov. Stevenson and for Sen. Sparkman and for the entire ticket." he said. A reporter asked if there wns any similarity between Stevenson's acceptance of Truman's aid nnd Eisenhower's action 1n Joining forces with Sen. Robert A. Taft of Ohio. Ha rold Smith of . Cotton wo od Point won the Cooter Cotton Picking Contest Saturday and Miss Jo White of Steele was crowned contest queen. The contest is sponsored each year by the Cooter High School senior class in cooperation with the Cooler Lions Club. Second place was won by two brothers. Faye and Joe Middleton, who picked 89 pounds apiece. Smith picked 91 pounds for his winning effort. Pug Keller ol Tyler was fourth place winner. EISENHOWER Obituaries (Continued from Pa<e I) lied. Waller asked: "Do you know •ho they are?" Smith replied: "No." Walter said "such a statement s disturbing to the entire coun- ry." "One of the reasons I came here oday was to alleviate that dlstur- Tinee," Smith replied. But Walter and Wood asserted hat Smith should stale flatly whether he "was certain" there fas Communist infiltration In A'ery government security agency. The general, however, said that le could not make such a state- nent. that (he work of (he CIA vas devoted entirely to operations outside of the United States. But IB did say this: "I have found no penetration of Communists in my organization in he United States. No American Communists and none within (he scope or interests of this commit- :ee." "I believe that there are Coin- munisls In my organization outside of the United States because the past we have from time :o time discovered one or two in our ranks." Smith noted that this Is a presidential election year and said that every statement made by an officer of the administration "is <Contlnue<l from Pae« 1) local level. He insisted lhat efficiency In government Is related directly to the fight for world pence, that without such efficiency there could not be the strength needed for world leadership. "What kind of government can you afford to have in Washington?" Eisenhower asked. "I'm convinced that you can afford only the best." The GOP nominee, drawing upon hie experience in Europe, pointed to what he termed the confusion of American agencies overseas. There were times, he said, when one government agency did :ot know what another government agency was doing in Europe. "The relationship between an fectiv'e government in Washington and our hope of promoting peace in the world," he said, "is the most serious thought I want to leave with you." He called for a government "confident of its own moral rectitude' as a prerequisite of that, He sale it must be a government backec by military strength. "If we are strong, honest anc straightforward in our dealings Eisenhower said, "we will have that prestige abroad." He declared that without his pool tion in the eyes of Western Euro lufus M.

WAR The junior class of Cooter won) withdrew and set up first place in the float judging. Other winners in order were the senior class* eighth grade and the sophomore class.

(Continued from Page 1) action along the 155-mile battlefront. To the east, a smaller but stiU bitter fight raged over possession of an outpost position. Chinese took the position in savage hand-to-hand battle last night. U.N. troops stormed back this morning. Details were sketchy and conflicting but indicated the fighting was still going on at mitl-any. Only patrol clashes were reported elsewhere. The Chinese on White Horse braved the withering fire of an Allied artillery barrage in regaining part of the ground they lost earlier to the bayonets and hand grenades of the South Ko re a as. They launched three • company- sized attacks about 3 p.m. and won the three knobs in 30 minutes of fighting. The South Koreans defense line about 300 yards down the north slope from the crest. Fight- going to be seized upon and quoted out of context." He added: "I have no political leanings or affiliations. Any future president, Republican or Democrat, is going to hnve to work with the same security agencies now in existence. Both will have 'the same difficulties that we now encounter today. If either one of them, the Democrat or the Republican, does as well as President Truman in cooperation with the security agencies in ferreting out subversives, the American people can congratulate each other and will have HUle to worry about." Responsibilities Abroad Walter asked Smith whether in making his statement about the Communists in the federal security agencies he had any first - hand knowledge or facts, "M y responsibilities are all aboard," Smith answered. "My knowledge concerns only activities abroad. Remember when I talk I refer only to those activities with which I am familiar." "I must assume," he continued, "from my past experience, that there has been infiltration of security organizations." Waller asked: "Then you assume and presume only that there is an infiltration? You have no facts?" "H I knew where there was a Communist I would do something about it," Smith replied. "Does that allay our disturbance, congressman?" he asked Walter. The latter bluntly said: "No, because ttf: position you hold places you in that situation where any statement you may make makes it appear it is baser" on fact, and fact alone."

Another reason for the requirement of additional land, the Chamber president said, is that the Air Force now foresees a much larger Installation than was originally planned.
