Shortly after the McElroy conference, the Air Force disclosed that its intercontinental missile, the Snark, delivered a simulated hydrogen warhead on a target 3,000 miles' from its launching. The announcement said the missile streaked to its target "with unprecedented accuracy" in an Oct. 31 test. "The flight was the world's first known demonstration of a ture in tercontinental missile capability," the Air Force statement said. The Snark, now in production for the Strategic Air Command, is a swept-wing weapon which operates at about the speed of sound. Late yesterday, a device described as a small test vehicle was fired from the big missile center at Cape Canaveral, Fla.

McElroy said that Holaday, in his new capacity as missile director, will retain direction over the scientific satellite programs only during the International Geophysical Year, which runs through the end of 1958. Thereafter, McElroy added, the military application of space vehicles will be turned over to the new space boss. McElroy's reorganization announcement came only a few hours after Dr. James R. Killian was sworn in as President Eisen howers scientific-m i 1 i t a r y coordinator. Killian, on leave from his job as president of Massachusetts Institute of Technology, declined to comment on the scope of his new White House job. McElroy said he thinks that at the present time, the 1RBM "should have our greatest atteri-tion." He said that missile is nearest to perfection. At Pasadena, Calif., last night, scientists unwrapped a Navy-developed satellite which they said will be launched by the Army in the first three months of next year. Dr. William H. Pickering, director of the jet propulsion laboratories of California Institute . of Technology, said: ' "We expect that the first flight will be made some time between the first of the year and the end of March."

(Continued from Page 1) John Berryman, a 44-year-old farmer, and his 16-year-old son, Maxim,' were among the first to go into the wreckage, which had slid down the face of a chalk pit and into a wooded area. "Bodies were scattered everywhere," Berryman said. "Between us we pulled out five women and six men." The soldiers "were marvelous," Berryman said. "Trrey dashed into the flames. Some were singed but they didn't hold back. They pulled out body after body. It was hell." I Priestley, who reached the hill side a nine later, saia ne naa heard the plane flying low. "We stopped the car to listen and then we heard a tremendous crash as the plane hit the earth, and we saw a red glow from the flames," he said. Two women survivors, a Mrs. Case and her daughter Sheila, staggered to a nearby farmhouse. They said passengers had been aware of trouble since the take off. 'We talked among ourselves wondering why we were still flying instead of making some effort to land," Mrs. Case related. "We realized the crew must also have been worried because we never received instructions to un fasten our safety belts. "All of us had our belts fast ened when we crashed. The plane 1 was on fire before it crashed. "There was no panic. We were all too confused. ' Mrs. Case and her daughter groped in darkness to reach a door of the plane. Bits of their clothing were still burning when they reached the farmhouse. There were more "objects" hov ering over Hazleton last night, according to at least 10 persons who took no stock in an Air Force release which pooh-poohed reports of strange lights and unusual objects in the sky. Three West Hazlcton residents claimed to have seen a knobby device which seemed to change 'color, a family of five said they saw a red and green-lighted square object, a nun related how she saw a bright orange object, and a city woman insists her television reception was impaired by a helicopterlike object which emitted a velvety sound. The claims came last night after an Air Force announcement that it could find no substantiation for various reports of mysterious lights and strange objects. This is the story told by a West Hazlcton man: "I stepped outside for a breath of air at about 11:15 p. m. after watching the news on television when I noticed this bright light in the southeast in the general direc tion of Easton. "I'd been reading these stories about people seeing things lately and I thought they were having hallucinations or something. Anyway, I ran and got my German binoculars and tailed to my-'wuV to come outside. "We took turns looking at it through the glasses and I went across the street and got one of the neighbors. We watched it for about 25 minutes. Like A Tinker-toy "It looked like one of these tinker-toys with knobs on the ends and bars connecting between in a triangle or quadrangle shape. It seemed to change color but the top was predominantly red. It moved up and down and back and forth and sometimes just stood still. It was uncanny. We watched 'till it faded out of sight." The neighbor confirmed the de scription and both declared em phatically it was not a star, although it was quite distant when first spotted. Earlier, at about 6:40 p. m., five members of a Hazleton family, three adults and two children, driving over the Stockton Mountain towards this city, reported a square-shaped object with four lights, three red and one green, in that area. Seemed To Glide They stopped the car and watched it. It seemed to be gliding very slowly and appeared to be no more than 75 feet high. It was about 4.0 feet square and made no sound. They watched till it disappeared over the mountain and then continued into the East Diamond avenue section where they stopped to telephone the newspaper office. Thursday night, but I'm sure something was flying around, even though 1 didn't see it." Air Force Report Air Force investigators labeled one of the recently publicized cases a "hoax," and said the others were exaggerations or misunderstandings of natural phenomena. The hoax tag was pinned on a story told by a Kearney, Neb., man, who said he toured a spaceship manned by a German-speaking crew. "Investigation revealed that local officials consider originator wholly unreliable," the Air Force said in a report issued yesterday. It was reported earlier from Nebraska that the man who told the space ship story had agreed to undergo psychiatric examination. Auto Stalled The Air Force said another person in the same area reported hi automobile stalled, lt added, however, that a mechanic said work had recently been done on the car, and that part of an old engine rotor could have caused the engine One of the nuns at St. Joseph Hnsnitfll rnnrtprf cooina a hrioht r - -1 " - . w..w.aa H WI.0U. f .. orance eolnrpH nhiurt nn ThnrsHav ' lauurc night, similar in appearance to' ,,he olh:r cases involved a big something reported by a Tresckow, filowing objcct said to have been man seen touching ground near Level- land, lex., and to have causea automobiles to stall; similar reports -from ti e a rAlamogordo,r N.

I never had any trouble with the set before. "Then I heard the sound of a motor overhead, but it wasn't an ordinary airplane. It was kind of a muted, velvety sound like a heli copter. It would go on for a while and then stop. I kept running from the back door to the front door trying to see it. but couldn't see anything. 'Kept Acting Up' "The television kept acting up for about a half hour and 1 kept running from door to door trying to see what was in the air outside. When the sound would stop I half expected the thing to be landing somewhere near the hospital, bul I didn't see anything. "I didn't .think any more about it until I read something in the paper next day. Then I talked with two of my neighbors and they said they had the same trouble with their television sets, but they didn't look outside. "I didn't see anything, but I know it wasn't a conventional airplane because it didn't have that sharp sound. I'd say it was a helicopter, judging from the sound I heard.
