(/]>)—A Jasper County representative charged yesterday Dial lawlessness lias' spread out of Missouri's big cities and reached dowi to tlie main strceUs of small towns He tisked the Missouri House to Icll Gov. Forrest Smith to enforce laws acalnst gambling. Rep. Richard M. Webster 'R> Carthage said even in Ills Soutii western Missouri lown peace off! ccr. r have found evidence of yamb !in^ syndicates at work. He asked the House to adopt re.solution saying that: 'This House optxxse any tnlera tlon. by the state's law enforce meiit officers, of (iiture violation of exislinK laws restricting ai prohibitin" gamminK and furtli that this House request his ex cellency, the governor^ of Missouri, fo use all the power at his command to enforce the existing laws ol the state." ! He asked Immediate consideration of the resolution and was not a political move against. Smith's democratic administration. "This is an honest and sincere effort after an outbreak of lawlessness In my home community," tie fiald. "There have been constant and consistent rumors since last August, that the state would be wide open" if Smith was elected governor, he said. His resolution went on: 'There are known to be well or- Kanizecl and active gambling .syndicates operating throughout the United States. "... Missouri Is cousideied by these syndicate* to be a fertile field for development and future operation. "... Constant rumors of lax enforcement of the laws of this stale have created a feeling of unrest among the citizens of Missouri. "... These nimor.s have given encouragement to local gamblers causing numerous outbreaks of lawessnoss." The resolution brought on an Immediate partisan fight, over how It should be handled.

II rates just under atomic energy In importance in the view ot military leaders. Gen, Carl SpuaU, former chief of staff of the Air Force, in his final report to the secretary of his dep- irtmenl, revealed how ir.uch attention it. is getting. From the time the Air Force began guided missiles research in 1945, he .said, all agreed that the chief objective must DC to develop a missle (hat could fly faster than sound and carry an atomic warhead 5,000 miles. "Since there Is no existing defense against this type of weapon," he said, "it !s essential that the United State* be the first nation to develop it." Missies which fly in the earth's atmosphere arc vulnerable t o counter-attack, Aircraft cnn strike them down. But rockci-s soar far beyond the earth's atmosphere. The Germans' V-2 was a rocket Its trajectory was similar to thai of a cannon. It could not be intercepted. Even the launching base I of a rocket has a special advantage for the attacker. It, can take off from a mobile unit which might fire a Few rounds then move to new grounds before the enemy could learn where the rocket came from. But enormous scientific problems have to be solved before the very heavy rockets are long range feasible. The advantage of guided missies is that they may be controlled in flight. But the control depends on fins, rudders and stnbilrzors which must move through air if they arc lo be of any use. Rocket control could be exercised only In relatively short distance It flew tlnouph the air, a few moments on the upward and downward paths. One answer might be the spiu-e ship, now being seriously considered by scientists. It would fly under rocket power beyond the pull of the earth's gravity, it would float there and direct radar beams straight the earth, forming a path for the rocket missile. Once in the general area of the target, a pin-point landing is now easily concciveable. Some Air Force bombs are controlled by mechanisms by which the bomb steers lUclf toward a source emitting licnt or light. Rocket fuels present a particularly nasty problem for the men who would use them under wartime conditions. They are described this way in the current Issue of the "Antiaircraft Journal" by Lt. Col. Howard B. HudLburg and Lt. Col. Richard G Thomas: "In many cases the fuels nre highly toxic nr otherwise injurioiiR to personnel, are highly inflam- mable, and. In most cases, self- igniting, arid some have the habit ol not lending readily lo storage ovel extended periods of lime. "You may easily visull/.e the problems that a guided missile service unit would encounter mining a huge, mobile<l-nlr Keunalm and a train of tank trucks transporting red. fuming nitric acid over a difficult road-net under «nemy tire." The weight of a big rocket Is another baffling problem. Willy Ley made some estimates ou this In a recent, article In the "Ordinance Magnv.lne." I.ey Is a German rocket expert who came lo this country In 1935. He said a rocket shooting 630 miies nf farther would weigh 3R tons with a one-ton warhead. 840 tons with a three-ton warhead. nut scientists say that most of Hie problems nre gradually being solved. The Ah Force recently plar.- eri an outer with Consolidated Vul- t«e for ft rocket which can soar to altitudes of 100 miles high or more •Hie Army and Navy also have under development rockcls whicl can go that high. Cm tlss-Wrigh recently revealed Hint It Is rngagci In secret government research on rocket which would have n spec of 3,000 miles per hour. Gen. Mulr a. Fnlrchild, vice chii of staff of the Air Force, rrcentl told a congressional committee tin "within 10 years we will be. repla ing present guns with bombs b guided missile's." Within 15 years, he added, will have guided missiles which ci do at least some of the work bombardment ulrcratt. At NABERS GROCERY & MARKET Uargc Cans 13c.
