Sputnik Is Heard Again Remains in vSame Orbit WASHINGTON UP Scientists at the Naval Research Laboratory said Wednesday their latest cal culations indicate the Russian Sputnik is still whirling around the earth on its original orbit and apparently at its original speed and altitude Observers in several countries have reached conclusions that the Sovietspawned baby moon was running out of steam and falling closer to the earth but labora tory spokesman said Our figures just dont support this He said radio signals from Sput nik were received strong andi clear when it passed over Wash1 ington at am He added there now seems to be more of a steady signal instead of the ori ginal beep beep beep Same Schedule The spokesman said calcula tions made about 9 am indicate Sputnik is still taking 961 minutes to circle the earth almost exactly j the schedule it has followed from the start The laboratory figures the satel lite has been on eliptic course ap parently from the time it wasi launched That means it is not quite a perfect circle and the sa tellites orbit may periodically draw it closer to earth The spokesman said the laboratory estimates it has an average height of about 400 miles Because scientific data on the satellites path still is somewhat incomplete he said it may thaTlhe points where Sputnik nor mally drops closer to the earth may vary slightly with each orbit That he explained would account for some of the reports that the satellite is dropping down from its original orbit 6Hour There was a sixhour period dur ing which the laboratory heard nothing from the sphere but early Wednesday it again began picking up the beep of its dio transmissions Some foreign observers had re ported the satellite apparently dropping toward the denser low er atmosphere where its life would be short The Soviet Union will send larger satellites into outer space with live animals to study the possibilities of interplanetary travel Pravda said Wednesday Pravda confirmed that the sat ellite has been transmitting re ports on temperatures and outer space conditions by coded radio messages which presum ably only Soviet observers can de cipher Some Soviet scientists previously have denied that any code was being used The Weather Mason City Clearing and con siderably colder Wednesday night with frost and freezing temperatures low 2832 Partly cloudy and continued cool
