not come as a surprise Asked if this country had any advance information on the Rus sian launching Hagerty replied all he could say was it did not come as a surprise The launching of the Soviet

Miles Up PROM OUR WIRE SERVICES MOSCOW The Soviet Union has won the race into outer space by launching mankinds first earth satellite and a triumphant Moscow broadcast Saturday hailed the victory as the first stage of projected flights to the moon The pulsating radio beep of the satellite signaled to the world that man had crossed the thresh hold into the age of space travel with an 184pound 228inch globe now orbiting the earth 560 miles up at a speed of 18000 miles an hour The dramatic claim that Russia had beaten the United States in the satellite race came in an an nouncement saying the artificial moon was launched Friday by multiplestage rockets Signals Transmitted The announced weight of the satellite is about nine times that of a projected 22inch earth satel lite which the U S hopes to launch next spring An announcement by the offi cial agency Tass said the moon was circling the globe every hour and 35 minutes It transmits radio signals back to the earth as it hurls along The launching came just three months and four days after the opening of the International Geo physical Year a concert ed program by the worlds scien tists to learn more of the earths secrets The
