(AP) —Tlio United Slates has hurled the first atomic battery inlo space as part of n spectacular sky-high triple pluy in which one rocket rammed (hree satellites inlo orbit. The successful orbiting of the nuctesyr device in one of the snlcl- litcl^'givcs American scientists n significant lend over the Soviet Union in I he race to harness atomic power for space exploration. A Thor-Able-Slar rocket blasted off from Cape Canaveral Wednesday containing the three satellites stacked in its nose Ifke a three- scoop ice cream cone. Both stages of the 50-ton rocket cliejffd with drill-like precision and flung the entire package into orbit. Almost immediately, spring devices kicked the payloads apart and they continued to circle the globe on separate paths nearly COO miles above the earth. Officials reported early today that the atomic battery was functioning and that clear .signals were benig transmitted by till three packages. 'Jwis was Die first time the triple payloatl technique was at tempted. It raised to 43 the ntim her of U.S. satellites placed in orbit since the first went aloft 41 months ago. Another Thor-Ablc- Star pushed two satellites up a year ago. The 4'/i pound nuclear unit was- attached to the base of the largest satellite. This is Transit <1-A Impound forerunner of Die Navy satellite system designed to provide ships, planes and submarines with accurate, all-weather navigation. The other satellites were: A 55-pound sphere nicknamed GHEB which carried two detectors to measure X-ray radiation from the sun, Injury a 40-i-)bund" drUm-sha'pa' •pared ib measure intense radia lj$i in the Van Allen radiation bolts and lo report on aurora phenomena such as the northcrr lights. The instruments were de vised by Dr. James Van Allen of the University of Iowa whose graduates say the U. S. satellites discovered the great bands of radiation. But the starring role went to the grapefruit-sized atomic unit w^osc hot core contained a small Jhnount of plutoniiim 288, a radioisotope which generated heat up to 1,000 degrees Fahrenheit. Thermoelectric rods converted the heat to electrical energy which sent 2.5 watts of power to two of four radio transmitters and some instruments in Transit 4-A. The United States thus scored a historic beat over the Soviet Union in sending the first nuclear flavor.unit into space. Once perfected, these atomic batteries will provide satellites with unlimited power supply and permit communication with vehicles fired deep into the universe. Speeches and articles by Soviet seicnl'Hs report they are pushing development of nuclear units as being necessary for future space exploration.

It would lave sweeping powers to draw up lisarmamenl plans, negotiate and landle enforcement if any inter- ulional arms-control agreement. s reached. Administration aides contend ho new U.S. agency—first of its dud in Ihe world—would underscore the importance Ihe United Stales attaches-to Ihe disarma- niMit problem. Kennedy sent his proposal lo Congress in the form of n bill to set up a "United Slates disarmament agency for world peace and security." The new, autonomous feder- il bureau would replace tlie 'U.S. Disarmament Adminislrn- ion," which now operates in the Stale Department under John J. McCloy, Kennedy's special adviser on disarmament. The basic idea is lo create a long-term agency lo deal with a long-term cold-war problem: how to check the spiraling arms race. A White House statement said Kennedy's plan would carry out a 191)0 Democratic-• pJalforjn prom isc. The stntemenl said Ihe bill also included elements of a bill for an arms-control research institute Kennedy proposed as senator. The new agency would expand on the disarmament administration thai former President Dwight D. Eisenhower set up lust October. Kennedy wants the new agency to be beaded by a.$22,500-a-ycar, subcabinel-level director, who •would be the presidents disarma ment adviser and would report both to the president and to the secretary of stale. William C. Foster, who has held important, disarmament foreign affairs and defense jobs under Ihc past two administrations and is assisting McCloy now, has beer mentioned lor the top post. McCloy intends to retire. Preliminary plans call for slep- ping up the 110-mnn disarmament staff to some 200 the first year raising its budget from $1)00,000 lo ,$G or 7 million.
