Force turns fighters into tankers and back again in a mater of minutes. A plane like the F-94F Thunderstreak, that carries a bomb on one mission, can be a tanker the next. Designed for faster-than- sound aircraft, the system makes refueling possible at high speeds and at altitudes of up to 30,000 feet. In six to 15 minutes (depending on the amount of gas) the operation is completed and the receiving plane continues on its mission. The low-cost system, said to be able to increase range of fighters "up to 70 per cent" depending on the type of mission, san also be used with slower jets. It was developed for the U.S.A.F. by Repubh Aviation Corporation. Thirsty RF-MF Thunderflash (bottom) approaches Us sister ship, an F-84F Thunderstreak, which is acting as aerial tanker.

Her husband said Washington business kept him from attending. The Advocate's photographer was told when he arrived at the party that the elder Beck was "not feeling well" and had to leave early. But the photographer was invited to take a picture of "Mr. and Mrs. Dave Beck Jr., along with the Skakels, their, daughter, Kirk, and Mrs. Robert Kennedy.

TOMLINSON NEW YORK laV-A pudgy little man in a camel's-hair coat was about to leave his hotel room in Munich, Germany. Suddenly there was a knock. * The man opened the door and was handed a cable. He read a one-word message: "Cinerama." It was a code word and meant: "Come home. Your life is in danger." Fantastic Career Thus, on last Jan, 19, the curtain fell on the fantastic cloak-and- dagger career of Boris Milhailo- vitch Morros. For 12 years the Russian-born Hollywood producer acted as a master counterspy for the United States. The perilous role took him to obscure hotels, dimly lit cafes and dark street corners from Paris to Moscow. Monday Morros, 62, told his tale at a news conference in the office of Acting U.S. Atty. Thomas B. Gilchrist Jr. Morros' testimony before a federal grand jury earlier this year brought an espionage indictment against Mr. and Mrs. Jack Soble and Jacob Albam, and against Mr. and Mrs. George Zlatovski. Albam and Mrs. Soble were sentenced to 5Vi years in prison. Soble will be sentenced Sept. 18. Hoodwinked Soviets The balding producer and music director told in a thick Russian accent how he hoodwinked the Soviets into thinking he was a spy for them. Yet, the whole time, he was sending* reports to the FBI. "I was never a spy in my life," he said at the outset, "and during the war I acquired a kind of bravery, and I guess I behaved properly in the 12 years of my activity. "That is the only reason I am alive. I don't think I could do it again." Morris said neither his wife nor his friends had "any inkling of my activity, which took me to Europe 68 times, including Moscow and East Berlin." He said posing as a spy for the Russians wasn't easy. "I hated everything they stood for and when I had to express myself to high Russian officials and to American spies employed by them in' terms of supporting their vicious ideology, I really had to do a more realistic acting job than any of the players whom I had ever directed in Hollywood. "My life and my mission depended on that." Naturalized Citizen Morros, born to a family of musicians in St. Petersburg (now Leningrad), came to the United States in 1922 and became a naturalized citizen. He said he went back to Russia in 1935 to visit his mother. In 1945 the Russians asked him to become an agent for them. "I went straight to the FBI and reported what had happened," he said. "I was told to agree to the Russian proposals and make my contacts." Morros said the Russians asked him to get information on strategic materials and products. He handed them documents cleared by the FBI. He said an FBI agent was never more than a stone's throw away from him on his trips to Europe. One day he went to the Soviet Embassy in Paris to see a Russian film. He sat between a Soviet official and an FBI agent whom he had passed off as a "comrade in arms."' Spent Own Money Morros said he didn't ask for money from the Russians and didn't receive any. He said he spent two million dollars, of his own money on his espionage work and is ,now broke. Finally, Morros was put on the Russians' "very suspect" list. He said the Soviet Embassy in Wash 12 Times Herald, Carroll, Iowa Tuesday, Au«. 13, 1957 ington received charges "from their paid spies here—Americans —that I was not loyal to the Russian objectives." "In fact," he said, "one such message came from the Soviets in Washington while I was in Moscow meeting with the top men in the Russian secret police, and \ had to talk fast to get out of that one." , Morros went to Munich last January. He had an appointment to meet his Russian contact in Vienna Jan. 20. But before he left Munich he received the FBI message to come home. The 12-year masquerade was over. Morros said he knows from "personal information and experience that Soviet espionage has made considerable infiltration in this country," Important People "Many of the agents working for Russia are important people, financially independent and often held In high esteem," he said. "Many of the Soviet's most active workers in this country don't come from the rank and file nor the underprivileged.. They are people who have the kind of contacts which will be useful to the Soviets, and they are being paid to do their jobs of treason in the United States." ' He said the present regime in Moscow, "has been hatching a vast imperialistic plot for a Slav- dominated world." Morros was not allowed to. tell his story in full. Gilchrist restrained him now and then from telling "too" much." • No star in the Southern Hemisphere corresponds to Polaris (the Pole Star) in the Northern Hemisphere. * LOOKING FOR TROUBLE? ...
