Redlands Daily Facts Wed., Mar. 25, 195! - II Redlands Sportsmen Match Skill On Trap Shooting Range PULL — On Redlands Fish and Game club's range south of Sunset drive, 20 to 30 members shoot clay pigeons one Sunday a month. Here L. J. Mayse (center) is about ready to holler "pull." When he does, Kenneth Rich will yank pole, triggering spring trap in sunken house. As target flies, Mayse will shatter it in mid-air, if he can. To his right is H. H. ("Barley") Ford who will shoot next MISSED — Karp Stockton, still watching to see how that one "got away," ejects shell (falling by his left' elbow) from his Winchester pump. For safety, competitors point gun toward sky or ground when they aren't shooting. Post marks place from which a man must fire. SAFETY — These 12 gauge pumps and automatics are, according to rule, left open so inspector can see they aren't loaded. In background, Jack McKeJlar sights his over-and-undcr shotgun to get relaxed for competition. He will shoot against four others, and each man will shoot five shells. They rotate positions on the firing line after each of the five has fired at one target TRAP BOYS — Ricky Cutler (left) and Donald Mayse unpack 1240 targets and stack them in the trap house for loading. Both are good shots themselves and use 20 gauge shotguns. Birds cost 4 cents each. Raised, white center breaks readily when hit and whole Blue Rock disintegrates. Boys are safe in masonry block house, with metal i-oof, which is sunk into ground. ' LOADING — Ricky loads target on spring trap. It will fly about 90 feet if unhit, when poler releases it Trap automatically changes flight pattern of clay pigeon each time it goes off. Birds fly out of ground 16 yards from man who will shoot THE BIRD — Magnus ("Slim") Mead, chairman of trap shooting committee, presents turkey to the winner, Waldo Burroughs, a crack shot. Slim manages the shoots. Competitors purchase whatever prize they wish — bacon, coffee, a turkey —and winner keeps it If two men in the group of five break all five targets in a series, then they move back from the trap and shoot until-one misses. Delving Into Space Should Guarantee Peace On Earth By DOC QUIGG United Press International NEW YORK (UPI) — The very delving of man into space should make it possible to guarantee peace on earth among earthlings but now our military must begin thinking o{ the likelihood of find ing vehicles and beings in space hostile to the earth's existence. In the next 200 years we may be able through such things as biophysics and drugs, to change th- nature, structure, and reac tion of human beings so that they can cope with the weirdness of space travel — but will the man so stretched still be homo sapiens? In our efforts to investigate other-earthly life, some of our early probes to other planets or space may bring back very un pleasant organisms to which we haven't developed an immunity. Or, we might start an epidemic] on another planet by taking some of our more nasty bacteria there And by the way, if we find some life out there—be it fungus, dinosaur, or cat — what do you use as bait to get it out of there? Not Schoolboy Daydreaming All this is not schoolboy daydreaming. These are ideas batted around Tuesday night by eight| space experts sitting in panel ses- sion on the grand ballroom stage of the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel. It was a session of "Future Developments In Space" attended by 1,300 persons at the national con vention of the Institute of Radio Engineers. They even threw in a space joke or two. Seems a scientist went to another planet looking for micro-organisms and while peer ing for them he was stepped on by an elephant. Also; Don't go to Jupiter because, in addition to cold weather, its gravity is so strong that "once you've landed on it, you've had it." That. is you'd just collapse. The panelists were Dr. Lloyd V. Berkner, chairman of the Space Science Board, National Academy of Sciences; George H. Stoner, general manager, Dyna Soar Weapons System Division, Boeing Aircraft Co.; Dr. Oswald G. Villard Jr., Stanford University; Dr. Homer E. Newell, National Aeronautics and Space Agency; George S. Shaw, vice president, engineering. Radiation, Inc.; Lt.j Gen. James M. Gavin (Ret.) of Arthur D. Little. Inc.: Dr. T. C. Hclvey. Biophysics Department.! University of Kansas; and Dr. Otto H. Schmitt, University of Minnesota. They were encouraged to let their imaginations rove and to ask each other questions. One sci enlist said he reckoned that about 200,000 years from now man would be able to travel at the] speed of light and live long enough to cross the universe. Another scientist took a pencil, figured a bit, and said that even with the few particles per cubicj centimeter floating around in space, any good-sized vehicle slamming along at the speed of light would be butting into resist-] ance equivilent to one kiloton atom bomb per second. Shaw emphasized that there will probably be whole families, literally hundreds, of satellites whizzing around us — making the earth like a ball wrapped round with yarn. They will so magnify our communications capability that we should have "multilingual telecasts from all portions of the globe." The saturated communications promised, over the years, to bring a new climate of understanding among peoples, he said Gavin said that militarily we are now well out of the missile age and into the space age and may reach the point "where it is possible to guarantee peace on a planet." through satellite capability. Dr. Berkner agreed tha milt- t a r y reconnaissance satellites Texans Too Big, Only 19 Get In Phone Booth EL PASO, Tex. (UPD —There are times when even Texans have to admit it's a handicap to be too big. College men at Texas Western squeezed and squeezed but could put only 19 men into a telphone booth. That was far short of the rcr ord set by Modesto (Calif.) Junior College where 32 students sar dined themselves into a booth. It was four short of the 23 sophomores who squeezed themselves into a booth at St. Mary's College, Moraga, Calif. But it tied the mark set by Hat' field College of England. might very well calm the nerves] of a jittery world." Since the military's duty is to try to foresee, military men will have to consider the likelihood of space beings which are "inimical to the earth's existence," Gavin said. But he said we have an opportunity to bring in a satellite system "that will create lasting peace" on earh — "let's have the vision to do it."
