K r i s h n a Menon. who w i l l remain a member of the cabinet in his new job, has been blamed for much of the ineffectiveness oC the Indian army in resisting the advances of the C o m m u n i s t invaders from tlio north. Critics charged that Krishna Menon had not made adequate plans for defense and had not equipped the I n d i a n army with automatic arms since he became defense minister 5!~ years afro. As one observer said, the Indian army was a. fine walking force equipped to fight World War I. But, initially, it was no match for the Red Chinese, who were well- equipped with fast-firing small nrms, heavy mortars and ions- range artillery. Nehru and Krishna Menon have been old friends since the days before Indian independence, and the prime minister in the past always had angrily and heatedly defended him against all critics.

'Winking Star' U.S. Satellite Orbiting Earth Pear-Shaped World Must Be Mapped Over Again i CAPE C A N A V E R A L . Oct. 31 ( U P I ) -- The U n i t e d States t o d a y , rocketed a " w i n k i n g star" satellite \ into orbit to help missilemen and i map makers cope with the problems of a pear-shaped world. The 355-pound satellite, named "Anna," was blasted into space by a two-stage Thor-Able-Star rocket l a u n c h e d at 3:08 a.m. today. After n o r m a l separation of the booster, the second stage ignited on time and sent the .moonlet whirling i n t o orbit. The second stage was re-fired as scheduled minutes later in an effort to make the orbit as nearly circular as possible about 700 miles above earth. The first serious experiments with the Anna satellite are expected to come in a b o u t ^ f o u r days, after scientists have had a chance to j firmly establish just what sort of | orbit it is in. Anna is a ball-shaped assortment, of radio transmitters and light beacons brighter t h a n the beams from most lighthouses. It is a strange sort of satellite in a strange sort of program. The shot was planned as part of a $12 million geodetic program whose goal is to f i n d out literally ! what shape earth is in, From it may come all sorts of practical benefits, i n c l u d i n g aid to missilemen in drawing a better bead on their targets and geographers in the charting of .the most j accurate maps 'ever' 'devised. But j between the launching pad snd the j final results is a somewhat wild j mathematical road.
