BourgesMoun oury foundered Sept 30 But Gail lard said he would accept amend ments to give greater weight to the votes of French residents That might appease the French in Algeria However it appeared

architectural designers The firm displayed construction methods and design to school administrators yester day Stewart explained designs showing greater outside wall area with less corridor and inside walls It is the functional school of today he said Economical but not cheap The difference between economi cal and cheap he said is that an economical building will be eco nomical in both initial construction and subsequent maintenance His reaction to Tucson schools after a brief look was that classroom needs had been sacri ficed for extras He said that his firm has built 250 schools in 26 states and 34 in Canada In all places we have been able to build from 20 to 30 per cent below the average cost he said Robert D Morrow superintend ent of schools was not convinced that the firms

said he spent a chatty half hour with the crew as a moving floor ferried them about the ships interior He said the crew of four men and two women spoke broken English and High German which he understands to an extent By a strange coincidence he re lated one of the crewmen looked exactly like a hotel acquaintance with whom he has been watching television programs Obligingly Schmidt catnapped at the county jail between guided tours to the site where skeptical officers joined him in a search for clues to corroborate his story Police officers shuttling back and forth to the scene have found footprints this spot is often used by duck and what ap peared to be an oil spot On one of the trips they found a partly filled can of green motor oil about 65 feet from the oil spot and

Officialsdisclosed that Eisenhower has had Defense Department experts preparing for him detailed data on American missile performance compared with that of Russias new space conquering rockets While the chief executive appar ently has not completed the final draft of his radiotelevision ad dress it was understood he would include as much of this informa tion as possible in an effort to re assure the American people The President decided with dra matic suddenness last night to speak to the nation from the White House on the same day that the Russians celebrate the 40th anniversary of the Bolshevik Revo lution That is the occasion on which the Soviets are expected to an nounce any achievements their two space satellites It also new technological as a followup to is the time that they put on a massive display of their military might Eisenhower originally had planned to deliver his speech to be entitled Science and Security at Oklahoma City Nov 13 The White Housesaid the address would be of major importance The White House did not say why the President changed the timing of his speech But he ap parently wanted to be ready to quickly counter any announcement of new Soviet scientific and mili tary gains with reassurances to the American people of U S strength It also was there was no indication that it was prob the President would dis close some striking new U S tech nological achievement or plans and not nuclear energy to launch its second earth satellite work on atomic energy opens great possibilities in building atom jet engines which would facilitate flights to other planets Stanyukovich gave no details of theresearch into the photonic rockets except to say Soviet sci entists were working on such dockets which would develop supercosmic speeds approximat ing the speed of light Scientificsuccesses will even tually enable realization of this bold dream he added In London British rocket expert Kenneth Gatland said photonic rockets would draw energy from light and aieoretically at least would be capable of continuoui acceleration approximating the speed of light WHILE POLITICAL develop ments temporarily overshadowed the scientific aspects of Sputnik
