By BOB HARING LITTLE ROCK I API-Four so- called Freedom Hitlers each were fined $1)00 and sentenced lo six months in jail loday by a municipal judge who rejected their contentions their arrests violated their constitutional rights. Municipal Judge Quinn Glover leclured the "riders for their bus- riding nssaull on Little Rock and castigated (host- who would "aggravate our people and our situation here." Then, he told Ihe "riders"—two Negroes and two white persons- he would suspend his judgment if they would quit their bus-riding integration assault, on Ihe South anil go home. The four accepted Glover's offer and said they would go home. Glover instructed police lo see that, they follow through. They had spent Iwo nights and one day in jail awaiting trial ralher than post bond of .$500 each. Glover assailed the crowd of 1100 which gathered at a bus station for the arrival of Ihe riders Monlay night. Within minutes, the 'riders" were arrested by police when I hey refused lo leave. Ihe wailing room. The judge said the actions of the "Fredom Riders" amounted to "waving a red flag in the face of our people." He said Arkansans are debating how lo accept changes lhal: are occurring anil asked Ihe "Riders" lo "give oui people, time to adjust lo new cir- eumslances." The "Riders" were permitted to go lo the homes of friends here. They were instructed to notify police when they are ready lo leave so officers can witness the departure. The Rev. B. Elton Cox, :!0, of St.. Louis, Negro field secretary for Hie Congress of Racial Equality, wa.s the only ."ritler'' to testify.

(AIM —The United Stales loday fired - inlo a record 1,1150-mile-high orbit — Ihe first missile alarm salellile lo pass over Russia. The orbil altitude was a surprises _ and a plcasanl one. Tho best the Air Force had hoped for was about r.oo miles. Previous high for a U.S. salellile was about :«)() miles, High altitude benefits the effectiveness of Midas' detection system, the Air Force said, because il permits a larger scanning area. Midas III is circling Ihe globf once every a hours find 40 mill iiles, The orbil is npproximalcl) circular, just what wa.s ordered, The orbit wa.s achieved by restarting the satellite's engine over Africa for a brief burst that increased altitude and made the orbit more circular. The salellile. after a series of disappointing delays, roared aloft al 11:12 a.m. from this Navy space base and inlo a polar orbil thai wjll carry il repeatedly over Soviel territory. The first pass over Russia will be the third, about 7 hours and 20 minutes after launch. Midas III is pioneering a satellite series aimed al. giving nearly instant warning of hostile misslo firings. In its nose is an infrared eye' which can sense heal, from, I lie exhaust of n missile blasting off hundreds of miles below. The second slage was boosted by Ihe same Alias rocket thai, fi/.- /led on Ihe launch pad last Monday after days of postponements caused by unexplained technical troubles. Midas and its sister salellil.o, Ihe camera-carrying Santos, an* designed as space-age replacements for the U2 spy plane' shot down over Russia more than a year ago. A Midas network would almost double Ihe 15-miiuile warning time possible with ground-based radar. Midas can track a rocket until Ihe engine burns out—about five minutes. Then radar of (ho Ballistic Missile Early Warning Syslem can lake over and computers can give a quick fix on thu missile's target. Plans called for Midas to cet its first look al Soviet leilrilory within three hours; to crossi within 12 hours above Hussia'iS big missile bases in Ihe Ural Mouiv tains. ' The Air Force hoped Midas n9 a lest could try to detect planned launchings from nearby Vandenberg Air Force Base and from Cape Canaveral, Fla. Early Midas shots arc pioneering a proposed network of military salelliles able to flash an alarm lo Ibis country seconds after Ihe launching of a missile anywhere in Ihe world. Since one Midas can scan only part of the earth, I! to 12 will be needed. Neither of Ihe two previous Midas shols was fully successful. The first, Feb. 26, ItlliO, failed .to orbil. The second, on the following May 24. orbited but its radio failed. Engineers never learned whether its detection system workd.
