M-M04 major breakthrough in electronics. Their aim is to make tiny crystals do the work of complicated rocket and space vehicle guidance systems. This would up reliability 10 to a hundred times. It would make possible outdistancing the Reds in guiding rockets through space. The way U.S. space scientists figure it, the Soviets arc well ahead in one major field — power. They arc using rockets with power almost twice that in U .S. rockets. This lets them send up huge loads. They therefore have room for larger and more complicated systems for guiding their space shots. They can use larger, more cumbersome, but more reliable parts, thus have fewer failures. Pentagon and NASA scientists figure the U.S. is ahead of the Reds on guidance — pound for pound — and on space information-gathering instruments. In the long run, they believe, these superior instruments will give the U.S. the information needed to catch up ind get ahead of the Russians. But not for some time. The U.S. has a lot of catching up to do. Here are the catch-up plans: NASA aims at putting a man into space for five minutes next summer — and a bull's-eye shot at the moon next fall. The Reds, of course, have already hit the moon. They're expected to have a man in space before next summer. By 1961. the U.S. expects to have an operational multi-engine rocket with a total push of a million and half pounds — over four times that of the Atlas and more than twice what the Russians arc believed to be now using. U. S. scientists are sure the Soviets will beat that rocket and the next rocket, too — a multi-engine affair with a six million pound thrust — expected to be completed here by the mid-l'JGO's. This engine will be powerful enough for manned flight to the moon and back. But the U.S. may not meet these future schedules. Congress cut NASA back 30 million dollars on its space programs. That will delay the Vega rocket —capable of putting two and a half tons in orbit around the earth or half a ton around the moon. It will slow the six million pound thrust cluster-engine, the Centaur space vehicle, which could land a third of a ton of instruments on the moon without destroying them. The Soviet moon shot destroyed whatever instruments were aboard. It will delay Project Rover— the program for developing an atomic power system for space travel. This shortage of funds means, too — that if I he paddle wheel space probe and the moon satellite misfire and are lost — there won't he others right away. There's little money in reserve. This shortage of funds is causing even greater worry for t he long run. The heavy funds voted in I he I960 budget are going to immediate weapons and equipment, and research on soon-to-come weapons and equipment. The scientists mourn lhat basic research — research on the fundamental principles of nature — is being neglected. They say this basic research costs little ,— that 50 million to 100 million dollars a year — diverted from day-to-day spending, is the only way to guarantee the breakthroughs needed to insure getting ahead of the Reds. They say the Reds are spending the money for that basic research. Six Westside Women Attend Evening School (Times llrrnld News Srr\lrr> WESTSIDE - Mrs. Russell Pontius.
