Radio communications would be knocked out for at least a day at distances up to 2,500 miles, and would be disrupted for several days after the period of total blackout, —Generate spectacular auroral 'displays which, if the explosion was on a clear night, would be visible in a region of millions of square miles not only around the explosion site but in the corresponding region of the Southern Hemisphere. —Act as an artificial solar flare to pump up and make more dangerous to spacecraft the Val Allen zones of radiation around the earth. • —Create a burst of light like an exploding star momentarily as bright as 10,000 suns. Vaporized materials of the bomb would expand into an incandescent fireball perhaps 40 miles across which would glow for several seconds after the fantastic initial flash. weapons effects. Assuming astronauts had no more shielding than that provided say, by a Mercury space cabin, penetating rays from a nuclear burst would be . "a ( murderous proposition," Lapp said- These rays \yould to through a Merttcy spacecraft "like butter," he said. In the atmosphere neutrons are quickly absorbed and other radiations are "attenuated-" In space they would flash at or near the speed of light for hundreds of miles-without losing their deadliness. Lapp figured that the "lethal range" of neutrons alone from a 50-megaton explosion, would be 330 miles. A 50-megaton bomb would weigh about 12V£ tons. Are the Russians capable of rocketing such a weight, to altitudes of 100 miles above places of their choosing? Easily, Lapp believes. Scientists who participated in a recent American Rocket Society meeting in New York predicted that Russians soon will be able to 'Neutral'Sudan Minister Openly Critical Of Reds WASHINGTON (NEA> — The president-prime minister of Sudan, recent U.S. visitor, is one of those seemingly rare charac Icrs — a neutralist who publicly condemns some 'Soviet actions. tn fact, Ferik Ibrahim Abboud bears little resemblance to the typical leaders of the new African nations. For one thing, this jolly, stocky little man with thinning gray hair is not young. He will ; be (it this! month. Gen. 'Abboud is a military dictator who seized power almost three yeaars agrt in a predawn bloodless coup. He has made his country stricly nsutral and is in the process of transferring much of his administration into civilian hands. The largest country in Africa, Sudan has an area of 967,500 square miles, about a third that of the U.S. The country lies due south of Egypt and has a population of 10 million. ; Sudan maintains that it is ded Seated to the rule of law internationally. Gen. Abboud's positions on international issues have been taken according to judgments made without fear of partiality to East or West. Gen.

With such rocket power, they could put a 50-megaton bomb into a satellite orbit around the earth. They already have proved, in the Gagarin and.Titov flights, that they know how to make a satellite come down where and when they wish. to 50 million, tons megatons of TNT.-. This would be the biggest explosion ever produced by man. It would : not equal in energy many of nature's performances such as giant hurricane?, giant volcanic eruptions, .-or 'giant earthquakes. But it would unleash more than three times as much violence as the most powerful nuclear weapon known to have been tested to date. And "it would set loose more «han 2,500 times the energy re- ceased by the atomic bomb that destroyed Hiroshima in .World War II. The scientists' conclusions as to the 50-megaton bomb's space effects were based on an assumption the explosion would be set off at an altitude of 100 miles. At that height, in the absence of an impeding atmosphere, it would lose most of its fantastic energy . quickly not as air blast but in the form of heat, light, ultraviolet, ''soft" X-ray, gamma, and neutron radiation. This one bomb may well produce a third as much radioactive debris as all the nuclear devices exuded by all the nuclear powers so far. '' ! Exploded oh the ground such a, weapon would blast out a crater' a mile and a half wide and 400 feet deep. Depending on winds, it could • contaminate a region of 20,000 square miles with killing amounts of radioactivity. As an air burst U could inflict skin burns and start fires as far away as 50 miles. i In space the effects would be; of a different kind. The calculations concerning the 50-megaton I space shot's effect on radio and • radar were made by Dr. Alvin' G. McNish of the National Bu- j reau of Standards. McNish is an authority on the effects of high altitude nuclear explosions. ' Electrons and other charged particles emitted hy the explosion would become trapped in the lines of force of the earth's magnetic field. Like particles spewed into space by solar flities, they would create disturbances in the field and "enhance the Van Allen belt-" In addition to messing up radio and radar, they would trigger northern light displays. These displays would occur in the zone of the explosion in the Northern Hemisphere and at the ".conjugate points" on the magnetic lines of force in the Southern Hemisphere. Such bombs fired in space at the right places could, by jamming radar warning systems, provide » "smokescreen" for nuclear attacks. McNish said. The lethal neutron and retinal bum range of a 50-megaton explosion in space was calculated by Dr. Ralph E.

(UPI) — One good thing about training a •• hog to do tricks, says trainer Tab Evans, is that when he retires he has a ready market value. Evans, whose hog Pork Chop won national attention through his tricks, was retired recently after he became old and was shipped off to the packing house. Going Up LAWRENCE, Kan. (UPI) - The most expensive single volume purchased by the University of Kansas Library back in 1905 was "An Essay on the Early History of the Swedish scholar Periplus. Its price-was $31.25', and some academic eyeBrows went up. The volume sells for $200 in today's bopk market, a librarian said.

Abboud favors the admission of Red China to the United Nations. Sudan has supported the U,N. steadfastly. It sent troops to the Congo crisis. It rejected strong pressures from'the United Arab Republic and the U.S.S.R. to ,-peiv mil the movement of supplies through Sudan to Lumumba supporters in the Eastern Congo. A member of the Arab League, Sudan also furnished troops to the League in the recent dispute between Kuwait and Iraq. Gen Abboud's government has concentrated on trying to speed economic and social development at home. Ninety per cent of Sudan's economic growth since World War II from an agricultural towards an industrial economy has been financed with i t s own resources. Abboud has accepted only small amounts of U.S. and U.S.S.R. aid. Sudan's prime minister was born Oct. 26, 1900, in Suakin, a small, sunbaked town, on the Red Sea.

C, Mure! Williams sought a permit 10 drill a gas well on the small tract in the Joaquin Field of Shelby County. The commission's spacing rules for the field were one well per 6>10 acres, bul ' Williams said his permit w a s ! needed to prevent confiscation of | property, and asked nn exception' to the Rule 37 spacing order. The commission denied the permit on grounds Wiliams had not proven the well wiis needed to prevent wnsle. Bul the trial court in Travis County reversed the commission and ordered the permit approved. The Civil Appeals Court agreed that a permit was warranted. court to reverse itself or to persuade the President to declare the Internal Security Act to be unenforceable. The Communists called this a massive campaign to save the Bill of Rights, Their hope was that millions of Americans could be; rallied to a propaganda campaign j in the defense of the Bill of Rights I whereas not many would rise to . defend the Communist party, against nn act of Congress held j by the Supreme Court to be constitutional. This effort to confuse the issue was a monumental flop. A Communist front called the Citizens Committee for Constitutional Liberties led this propaganda maneuver, seeking to enlist the financial and moral support of non-Communists. The committee printed and Circulated 50,000 postcards urging the President to direct the 'attorney general to agree, to a rehearing of the case or to declare the act unenforceable.
