• TO Editorial— Salute to a Great Plane Which Served Nation Well The plane bears the quite ordinary designation of DC-?. But it is perhaps the most extraordinary commercial aircraft that ever took to the skies. Today there are only about 270 j DC-3's in regular operation on 22 scheduled airlines around the country, mostly feeder routes. But once there were thousands flying all over the world, and altogether the Douglas Aircraft eompany built 11,000 of them. Soon there will be none, for Congress has approved financial aid to small airlines to enable them to replace the DC-3 with more modern ships. But when the DC-3 began TimM Herald, Carroll, Iowa Tumday, Sept. 3, 1957 II I Said If You Won't Disarm, W e. Won't Either" A transport workhorse, it did al most every conceivable wartime job. It freighted millions of tons of war supplies, carried paratroops over battle zones, bore the wounded back to base, and so on. Overloaded C-47's somehow struggled into the air. Others, shot up and with motors failing, miraculously got back to ground safely. After the war, however, the advance of aviation into bigger, faster, more powerful planes finally outdistanced the little two- engined ship that carried just 21 serv-1 passengers and sat down on its ice with major airlines in 1933, it was quickly recognized as the sleekest, 'most serviceable and most economical commercial craft of its time. In five years it represented 90 per cent of the nation's commercial fleet, and foreign lines also were using it extensively. In World War II a military version known as the C-47 earned the title, "Jeep of the skies." tail rest at a sharp angle. But as the DC-3 goes into the last chapters of its long, service, Americans are not likely to forget its stalwart, steady performance both in war and in peace. Commercial aviation really came of age with the DC-3. And no one can really measure the lift it gave the Allied cause in World War II. It has earned a firm niche in flying history. Air-to-Air Nuclear Rocket Tops Varied A-Bomb Fare By DOUGLAS LARSEN NEA Staff Correspondent WASHINGTON - (NEA)—The live atomic bomb test show they've been putting on out in Nevada for the past several! months has been extraordinary J They've exploded big A-bombs, medium-sized ones and peewees. They've touched 'em off under the ground, on the ground, on steel towers, from balloons and in air-to-air rockets. Soldiers, Marines, civil defense workers and visiting firemen have squatted in (oxholes and trenches at various distances from the big booms, suffering less damage than they probably experienced at the gambling parlors in nearby Las Vegas. Beginning: The Perspective on The Great Missile Hassle By DOUGLAS LARSEN NEA Staff Correspondent WASHINGTON - (NEA) - Six weeks of probing around America's top-most secret produce cred -j ible evidence that this country has not been effectively outdistanced by the Russians in the race for the Intercontinental Ballistic Missile. In an effort to learn just how we stand in missile warfare a team of reporters has assembled all basic information which can be cleared for publication by Defense Department sources. It is reassuring — if you can be reassured to believe that your side is just as well equipped to wipe out the other fellow as he is to wipe out us. It reveals however, certain conflicts of authority and uncertainty in direction which must constitute the No, 1 problem of the incoming Secretary of Defense. Neil McElroy. The Russian announcement last week that they had already tested an intercontinental ballistic missile is certainly not going to lower this priority. Heavily Guarded On the basis of what has been learned — and one must remember that this is the most heavily- guarded of military projects—this reporter is convinced that: It will take the Russians years to acquire missiles they can really use — not merely test one somewhere in the wilds of Siberia. Our own tests may be just about as impressive. It is likely that our ly for use in air defense. This test firing is designed to collect certain important weapons' effects data on a known warhead at a stated distance. This test will also supply information for integration of future weapons into an effective air defense system." This test's bigger importance, some experts claim, is the fact that it was the first A-bomb detonated by the U.S. which has sole and exclusive use as a de-| tensive weapon against an attacking enemy. Some of the tactical atomic weapons which the Army has tested would seem to be primarily defensive in character. But one of the great fears of Europeans, for example, is that even a Six Air Force officers stood di -j ground atomic war on that conti- recfly under one blast without be-! nent would find cities wrecked ing injured from the blast or fall-: and civilians killed by U.S. tacti- out.

But there is no reason to believe that either those rays or in-! creased radioactive fallout from j explosion of nuclear material is j directly responsible for mental ill -i ness. Q—Can you please let me know what is synovitis of the knees?— ! Mrs. K. A—The synovial membrane 'from which synovitis gets its name) is a delicate tissue lying in and around the movable joints. It can become inflamed for a number of reasons. These include injury, direct infection by germs and more obscure disorders such as fheumatoid arthritis. Its significance, treatment and probability of cure, therefore, depend on many individual factors. Q—Please tell me what kind of doctor should be consulted about removing a tattoo?—Mrs. M. J.

The speed is out of this world: An 1CBM fired from Cocoa, Fla.» would reach the Ascension. Islands about 20 minutes later. Unending See-Saw „ Then will come the counter to the anti-missile missile, and then the defense against that, in the unending see-saw between offense and defense that has prevailed throughout the history of warfare. The ICBM would deliver a hydrogen bomb equivalent to millions of tons of TNT. It would be able to raze cities like Washington, London and Paris — or Moscow and Peiping. A direct hit wouldn't be necessary. It will travel about four miles a second, fast enough to leave New York and arrive over San Francisco about 12 minutes later. Most tinuing high priority must be given to assuring the U. S. an early operational capability in intermediate missiles. The Army points out that even the huge IRBM can be transported by air, along with its servicing equipment. IRBMs could thus be airlifted to the forward bases we have constructed around the periphery of the Soviet Union and launched from there to reach the Soviet heartland.

The very fact that we • j now have atomic capability in our i i air defense is a forceful deterrent, perment and character. The choleric father, for instance, is out of sympathy with a phlegmatic son; the father interested in practical achievements is disappointed in a son interested in ideas and theoretical inquiry, and vice versa. If the father's attitude is proprietary, he interprets the son's difference from him as inferiority; the son feels guilty and inferior because of his being different these notions of obligation and to j become "himself," is frequently so heavily weighed down by a burden of guilt over this "crime" that he falls by the wayside before ever reaching his goal of freedom.

Getting our own rocket capable of destroying Moscow . . . And toward a system of defense against whatever it is that Russia has uncorked behind its propaganda smokescreen, To begin this discussion of tomorrow's galaxy of unmanned aerial weapons, it is first necessary to examine the basic fagts of rocketry.

Nearly Perfect Weapon These attributes make it an al most-perfect weapon for an aggressor to launch a sneak attack like Pearl Harbor — only multiplied by a factor of thousands or millions. Development of the ICBM has top priority throughout the U. S. defense establishment. Secretary McElroy will boss. It had equal priority in the Soviet Union. Detailed information' on U. S. and U.S.S.R. progress toward the ICBM is lacking, as would be expected with such "Top Secret" programs. Until last week U. S.' authorities had been saying that Soviet attainment of an ICBM by 1960 should not be much more difficult for the Reds than their formidable feat of firing a hydrogen bomb by 1953. less than four years after their first atomic bomb. Russian science and technology are first-rate and would seem to be improving. On the U.S. side, the Air Force is responsible for developing and operating the ICBM. It has taken a dual approach to solving the problem, and is developing both the Atlas and Titan missiles. Huge, National Sport The new Secretary of Defense will find that attaining an ICBM "operational capability" will require a national effort equivalent or superior to that expended In j achieving the first atomic bomb- on the order of building another Panama Canal. By "operational capability" the Air Force means full production and ability to use —not merely testing of prototypes. The required effort will be lessened by advances already made toward the Intermediate Range Ballistic Missile U.500 miles range), many of which can be used in the ICBM. The Air Force is developing its IRBM and ICBM simultaneously.
