gcographicU S array air corps stratosphere haloon occupied the flight base today many hours after the unexpected mishap but no announcement or information was forthcoming as to what had been learned Indications were that any infor mation made public would have to come from sources other than the base here Newspapermen were not permitted to enter the balloon in flation area and Capt Albert W Stevens flight commander said all official reports must come from Washington cither through the army air corps or the geographic society Hold Oiil Some Hope Whether there would be any fur ther attempt

for the disheart ening collapse which occurred an hour before the scheduled takeoff at 3 a m central standard but none bore an official stamp They ranged from one that mere size was responsible to another that recent excessive humidity resulted in the rubberized cotton fabric sticking together and developing a weak spot Crowd of 50000 A crowd estimated at 50000 lined the stratosphere bowl early today when Explorer II collapsed into a heap of fabric instead of soaring aloft on its expected conquest of the skies When the gigantic balloon its helium gas escaping through a rip in the top slowly
