"It's one of the best places to observe a blast that 1 can think o(," said Col. Sydney Bruce, of Durango, Colo. The. first air-to-air atomic rocket ever fired 1 went off more than 15,000 feet—how much more was not disclosed—above the heads of the five Air,Defense Command officers. 'Low-Powered' The rocket was a low-powered weapon compared with most atomic devices, but Lt. Gen. J. H. Atkinson, commander of the defense command, said it could blast a fleet of enemy planes out of the skies. The little band of officers came out from under the explosion with their neatly pressed khaki uniforms fresh enough for a parade- ground review. They were assigned to the lonely station at ground zero to bring out a report on what might happen to people below an aerial battle fought with atomic rockets such as the one tested here Friday. No Protection The officers had no protection whatsoever, not even the dark goggles which newsmen wore at their observation point more than 13 miles from the point of explosion. "We stood there waiting for the launching plane to come in and fire the rocket," Col. Bruce said. "We watched th? F89 coming in and we heard th" . final 10-second count down -by radio. When we saw the rocket released we dropped our eyes to a horizontal level. Felt Heat "The blast didn't even rock us. But the heat from the flash was like when you open the door of a furnace for a moment." The officers remained at ground strong position to take over from Dave Beck as boss of the Vh million member Teamsters Union. A federal court jury cleared Hoffa Friday of charges he conspired and bribed to plant a spy on' the staff of the Senate nounced he would get together with friends in Chicago within the next few days to decide on "my future activities in the union." At present, there is little doubt in the labor movement that Hoffa can take over Beck's spot' if he wants it, or name who he wants as Teamsters president. Hoffa flew to Detroit Friday night. In response to a question there, he said he financed his trial defense entirely from his own funds, and that he had declined offers by several locals to raise a Holds Breath Too Long in Test, Drowns CEDAR RAPIDS MV-While engaging in an underwater breath- holding contest with a companion Friday night 21-year-old Harold Fleming of Cedar Rapids remained submerged so long he drowned. » Fleming's friend.

Dead on Arrival When Fleming tailed to come up soon after Moore, life guards were summoned. They pulled him from the pool, applied artificial respiration without results, and summoned an ambulance.

Arms Position Address Monday Night Designed to Offset Heavy Red Criticism WASHINGTON (ffK-Secretary of State Dulles plans a nationwide radio-television speech Monday night to detail the U.S. position on disarmament — a subject of heavy Russian criticism recently. State Department sources said one purpose of the "comprehensive statement" would be to offset Soviet attacks on U.S. proposals at the London disarmament talks.

Members of the senate committee, headed by Sen. McClellan (D-Ark), were plainly disappointed with the trial outcome. The vice chairman, Sen. Ives (R-NY). said he felt the verdict was "a miscarriage of justice." Committee counsel Robert Kennedy said the committee was going ahead with "our investigation of Hoffa." McClellan said Hoffa's name will figure in the committee's next target—the labor situation in the New York area—and that the union official may be called as a witness.

Fleming's wife, whom he married last April, was watching from outside the fence which surrounds the pool when the tragedy occurred. Efforts Failed story " over that of John Cye Cheasty, the Senate committee investigator Hoffa was accused of paying to get committee secrets. Cheasty testified he did relay committee data to Hoffa, but only the department is concerned about the heavy Russian propaganda assault on U.S. proposals. These attacks, it was believed here, might be part of a plan to blame the United States should the talks break down. Represented at London, besides the United Stales and Russia, are Britain, France and Canada. The talks are recessed for the weekend but will be resumed Monday. Dulles reportedly wants to set the record straight on U.S. proposals and establish the point that if any breakdown in the talks comes, it will be due to Soviet unwillingness to accept a reasonable plan for arms reduction and control. Dulles also was said to feel that people here and abroad have not been given a comprehensive account of the U.S. disarmament efforts. Moscow radio has been broadcasting steady criticisms of U.S. proposals, claiming the United States was not presenting effective proposals at London. AIR POWER FOR KOREA . . . Standing at attention beside their F-86 Sabre Jets are Republic of Korea pilots and crew chiefs during a ceremony at Suwon, Korea, marking the transfer of a jet training unit from the U.S. to the growing ROK Air Force.

Authorities said the vehicle hit a corner of the bridge, then bounced across the highway into the other side of the span before flipping over^ They said one of the car doors was clipped off and found in a creek bed. Miller was thrown from the ve- •hicle. SHENANDOAH (ffl-Shenandoah residents looked to the skies Saturday for relief from a severe water shortage resulting from this week's heat wave. The city's 400,000 gallon water tower was only half full Friday night. Some of the effects of the shortage since it began to lie felt Thursday were leaving high areas temporarily without water, curtailing irrigation at nurseries, shutting off water-using air conditioning units in stores an hour before closing time and general conservation of the civilian use of water. the FBI of the alleged plot. A series of FBI agents bolstered Cheasty's story. Testifying in his own defense, Hoffa said he hired Cheasty only to advise him as an attorney. Hoffa looked straight at the jury when the "not guilty" verdict was announced. "It proves once again," he said afterward, "that if you are honest and tell the truth you have nothing to fear."

With supporters of the bill split over compromise moves. Sen. Russell (D-Ga), leader of the Dixie forces, told newsmen he was "very hopeful" the Senate would adopt an amendment to strike out part 3 of the House-passed measure. That part would authorize the attorney general to obtain federal court injunctions to project civil rights generally. Southern senators have protested it could be used to force racial integration in schools and other public places Denison Man Is Included in List of Names CAMP DODGE Iff) — Names of the 37 newly chosen members of the Iowa State Highway Patrol were announced Saturday by patrol chief David Herrick. Each of the 37 completed successfully the four-week patrol recruit training school which ended Saturday at Camp Dodge.

And it knocked out just about all of the bill's long-tprm aid features which marked a now approach to overseas assistance program this year. Final House passage by a 254154 rollcall vote climaxed a-daylong series of votes which found the bill's supporters on the defensive most of the time. The measure now Is slated for adjustment with a Senate-passed bill closer to the President's request. The Senate authorized a half billion dollars more than the' House and approved some of the long-range authority Eisenhower wanted. Since the usual practice is to compromise somewhere between the extremes of differing House and Senate bills, the conferees are expected to come up with a measure providing more money than the House version. However, during Friday's hectic House session, climaxing a week of debate, aid critics served notice they will oppose any compromise measure which they think gives in too much to the Senate.

"I am pleased with the House action," he said. In its major actions yesterday the House: ~1.
