(AP) i—An Atlas missile carrying a new tartiral-lype nose cone roared i over the Atlantic early today on •a 5,500-mile test flight. ! The new cone, nearly 12 feet tall, was eleaming white atop the 80-foot missile. The Air Force .plans eventually to use it in place of the smaller cones which now top the Atlas. Titan and Thor missiles. The new cone is designed for faster re-entry through the earth's atmosphere and probably will cut in half the time in which an antimissile .device can intercept it.

A great advantage of daily newspapers for advertisers is the ease and convenience with which they can be read by prospects. Newspapers "keep" till chores and work are done, and can be read at leisure. This is particularly important if an advertiser wants to reach the nation's 22,000,000 working women — who are not often free to hear radio and TV messages.

City's Back to Wall on Tests for Wall-washers PHILADELPHIA (AP (-Richard Levin of the city's personnel department, admits he has run up against a blank wall. "It seems," laments Levin, "there are two schools of thought on how a wall should be washed." One school, explains Levin, says you should start at the bottom and work up; the other insists you start, at the top and work down. More than 80 civil service job applicants are hoping to take the wall washers test scheduled Wednesday for five openings. Levin's problem is this. How is the correct way to wash a wall. Levin said he made a sincere effort to learn which method is professionally, generally and socially correct. The top-to-botlom advocates contend their method is the only logical one. They say water running down a wall in the washing process is removed as the cleaner v/orks toward the floor. Levin says that all housewives he knows, plus officials of several maintenance firms, advocate the lop-to-bottom method. Proponents of the bottom-to-top method argue that streaks left on unwashed walls by the top-downers are hard to remove. Washing upward, they explain, is more efficient and less water is used. This system is advocated by personnel departments of several states, school districts and the U.S. government. Right now, Levin does not. care what wall-washing method the applicants use. "As long as the wall comes out clean," he say, "we don't care if the guy starts in the middle and works both ways."
