Builder Sam S. Viglione of Douglas Aircraft? Astropower Electronics Laboratory said the same principle? could be used in Baking instruments to: 1. Recognize fingerprints, signatures or even human faces and then unlock doors and bank vaults. 2. Pinpoint storm centers as they develop beneath orbiting sa- 'sllitcs. .1 Guide spaceships through a starfield while the pilots sleep. The prototype device, which has been miniaturized from a roomful r" instrument?, fit? in a suitcase. Vidione said further research could reduce the size to a three- pound object nine inches long. Tt is basically a tiny computer. which has been taught to identify' 200.000 three-dimensional shapes. It has 400 photo cells in the retina of its "eye" and 400 logic units in its "brain." The device is sensitive, to visible light rays, which enables it to guide vacuum cleaners around furniture and moon jeeps around obstacles. It could be made sensitive, Viglione says, to other kinds of signals, such as sonar for submarine detection, or the types of electromagnetic radiation given off by superheated missile warheads as they re-enter the atmosphere. The key to its usefulness is the ability to distinguish between an almost unlimited number of signal patterns, and do it faster than a man can think. Its expensive now.

(AP) — If you don't tip the waiter at the Quarterdeck Club he won't tell you to go jump in the lake—but he may throw you in himself. The club is the latest fad—a floating restaurant on a barge anchored in Barnegat Bay. The sail-in eatery is the brainchild of William V. Scott, an ex- commercial fisherman and businessman. He bought, an old railroad barge and spent the winter converting it. "Boats are becoming as common as cars today," Scott explained. "There are lots of drive-ins to serve motorists, so I figured why not a sail-in restaurant? As far as I know, it's the only thing of its kind around." Ecuador Police Disperse Labor Groups on Strike GUAYAQUIL, Ecuador (AP> Troops, police and firemen broke Into Guayaquil's banks Wednesday and dislodged sitdown strikers who had seized the buildings and locked themselves in. Troops and police used battering rams and torches. Firemen went up ladders to throw tear gas at strikers barricaded on upper floors. The strikers afterward tried to asvsemble on Guayaquil's waterfront drive but police dispersed them. The bank workers demand higher wages and better working conditions. August 31 Important Social Security Date Not applying for social security j payments by August 31 can cause ; loss of some payments to a large | group hi this area, according to' Julian Covmgton, social security district manager in Lake Charles. He referred mainly to men who intended to take reduced benefits i before 65. j Covington said that effective August, 1961, men could get| social security payments at 62 by j taking a small reduction. Benefits can be paid retroactively for only one year. Finally, the new retirement test permits a person to get benefits for himself and his de- pendents and still have substantial earnings. The new retirement test, Covington explained, allows earnings of $1,200 a year without affecting benefits. Between $1,200 and $1,700 a deduction of $1 for each $2 in earnings is made. Above $1,700 in earnings the deduction in benefits is dollar for dollar. The deductions are applied to the total benefits due the worker and his family. However, checks are issued for each month the worker does not earn over $100 in wages or do sabstantial work to ment, regardless of earning! fof the year. Persons who could be elrgtbla tmder these provisions are advised to visit the Lake Cnaries social security office by August 31 to get exact information a ft 0 u t their status. The office is at*3H8 Ryan street. .'; Small industrial plants IMtrish from Alexandria to Aswan, Egypt. Among other things, they thfikft refrigerators, transistor radios and automatic washing machines.

Davis said Wednesday ! Louisiana is establishing ' an I image of governmental responsibility that will help industry and individuals alike. 'During the two years I have served as governor," he said, "not one single piece of anti-business. or anti-industry legislation has been passed. We face this year with a conservatively sound, balanced budget." Davis told the National Association of State Contractors Li- j censing agencies, "the year 1962-1 63 will be a year of adjustment ; — a year of putting our financial | house in order. "If only traditional growth in the economy and in state revenues is maintained." he said, "we csn look forward to a substantial increase in dollars available next year to meet legitimate needs for increased services. 'Our financial problems have ' not been fully solved." Davis said, "No person, and no state, ever solves financial problems fully. But we have taken aggressive and courageous steps to solve them and I am fully confident that a year from now, because of the economies we have affected, Louisiana will be a byword in the nation for fiscal stability." Davis said Louisiana is solving other problems "the same way we are solving our financial problems.' 1 "We recognize, for example, that our educational system still can be improved. But it is improving yearly, and we are spending every available dollar to hasten this improvement.
