The meeting was one. of. several j anounced throughout the country '] aimed at protesting United States 'J selling Communist Yugoslavia air- l| planes and training 'pilots to fly I them.

Newberry said he had received a report from E. E- Shelhamer's Advanced Gfits group announcing that $17,700 ot its goal had been reached this morning- The advanced gifts committee has been wprking since Aug. 15,. ; .Ncwberry said. The committee's goal is $25,000. Individual solicitations started Monday afternoon following a Fund Kickoff luncheon in C o r o- nado Inn. No reports on the individual solicitation will be available until Monday, according to Newberry. "We are off to a good start," Newberry said today, "but we have a long way to go yet. It is going to take the considered interest of the individual contributors in Pampa and Lefors to put ,.the. drjve,.,pyer the top." Newberry said that fund officials are hoping that contributors will heed the appeal this year to have individual employes give one day's pay and company officials to contribute one per cent of their annual salary"Cities all over the nation have found," Newberry said, "that contributions on that basis are what is needed to make their drives a success. We feel sure that Pampa and Lefors will respond in that manner." Newberry said contributors contacted by the advanced gifts committee have been asked this year to contribute ten per cent U.S. Finds Space 'Spy' Successful CAPE CANAVERAL (UPI) — America's newest "spy" satellite is proving the success of a system designed to prevent a space- age Pearl Harbor. The moonlet is a sharp • eyed space machine called Midas IV. It was hurled into orbit from Vandenberg Air Force Base, Calif., last Saturday. Tuesday night, Midas IV was given its first lest when it passed through the skies above Cape Canaveral as the Air Force launched a 98-foot-tall Titan missile on an ocean-spanning voyage. The satellite's mechanical eye was wide open. Ultra-cool detection devices aboard the multi-ton satellite picked up infra-red radiations from the Titan's exhaust in a few minutes after t h e rocket was launched. Midas "memori/ed" the information on tape recorders and continued its orbital flight around earth. When it passed again over Troops re r\S 1x6 Ch the California base, scientists tapped its Air Force "memory" allenge Berlin Trave by radio signals. Midas IV faithfully told them that a large rocket was launchec at a certain time during its flight The test proved that, a sensitive station in space can detect the firing of sizeable rockets. quite early in their flights. What this means in turn is that, when the day comes that a full flock of Midas-type satellites are in the skies, America could about double the warning time it would have in event of an attack by intercontinental ballistic' ,missiles. .•'. , At present, the maximum warning available would be about 15 minutes, primarily from a' siring of radar stations. Since an ICBM takes a little more than a half-hour to make its full flight, a satellite detecting it early in flight could provide almost instantaneous warning. day on whether U. S. exports are aiding the Soviet war machine. The two cabinet officials faced cent questioning at a closed hearing by a special five-member House I I committee created to investigate '-'• American trade policies toward the Communist bloc, above their 1960 donations.
