Success FROM OUR W1RK SERVICES CAPE CANAVERAL formed sources reported Saturday that Fridays firing of an Air Force intermediate Thor missile exceeded all expectations by soaring nearly 2000 miles out over the Atlantic The sources said the big pencil ocean several hundred miles beyond the intended target 1500 miles away They said the the second successful firing of a Thor in six to see how far the missile could go As usual however the Air Force and Defense Department refused to comment on the suc shaped projectile dropped into theicess of the firing Witnesses who watched the launching from this topsecret test center said the firing apparently went off without a hitch They said the big projectile rose off the launching ramp with a tremendous roar Then it quickly picked up speed as it headed straight up and turned out over the Atlantic in a climbing arc The fiery trail disappeared from sight in about a minute One veteran missile watcher said the launching appeared to be one of the most successful at the big test center It followed a straight steady course without any wobbling he said The Thor an intermediate range missile is the counterpar of the Armys Jupiter which was testfired successfully s e v e r a months ago The Thors first sue cessfui launching took place Sept 20 Second Test Meanwhile apparently as a par of the Defense Departments edic of full speed ahead on the missil

of Boston described it as yellowwhite Terrific Speed Prof Menzell said he was sur prised by the apparently terrific DETROIT The automotive industry is putting its chips on longer and lower cars for 1958 and the consensus is that the trend will continue at least through the next few years The 1958 models have reached an almost uniform lowness from four feet six inches to four feet eight inches high while length varies considerably This added length and reduction in heighth despite criticism from traffic officials and the fringes of the consumer market is not the will of Detroit It is rather a demonstrable fact that the public taste demands such cars Manufacturers who bucked this trend in 1957 found that the public just wouldnt buy Result is that those who had higher cars n 1957 have cut them down for 1958 Pontiac Division of General Motors Corp for instance has sliced as much as fourandone half inches from some of its models In length it is the same story Ford Motor Co reports that the onger of two similar 1957 mod els 207 inches far outsold the smaller which was 201 inches long Length and height do not tell the whole story Flash dash and gadgets play an allimportant part in

UP Presi dent Eisenhower has no particu lar plans for observance of his 67th birthday anniversary Mon day Survey Taken The industry has found para doxically that it is almost dan gerous to make the kind of cars the public says it wants Rather they make the kind of cars the public has shown that it will buy They tell this story out at Fore Motor Co swearing to its ver acity Not too long ago a survey wa taken Two questions were asked What kind of car do you wan to buy And what kind of ca does your neighbor want to buy The answer to the first mos often pictured a car that wa austerity itself small econom ical with a minimum of chrom the necessary acces nd only ories Answer to the second question however was just the opposite The neighbor wanted a long low boat with a lot of horses un der the hood and every gadget made Best Year Ford wisely produced the kind of car the neighbor wanted Result when the car was intro duced some years later Ford enjoyed its best year in history Styling experts are of the opin ion that the 1958 models are just about as low as they can get without sacrificing passenger comfort and road clearance Any further cutting down depends on future engineering developments and illusion Significant changes in trans mission systems would mean getting rid of the hump that runs through the middle of the car floor allowing six passengers to ride in comfort Another pros pect is development of a door which would be partially fitted into the roof of the car Cast Shadow But it was clear that the Soviet satellite now circling the earth had cast its shadow on the leng hy consultations that produced the resolution One of the main points called For a joint study of an inspec tion system designed to ensure that sending of objects through outer space will be exclusively for peaceful and scientific pur poses The United States has suggest ed the study of control of outer space objects be taken up im mediately without waiting for agreement on other phases of ini tial steps toward disarmament This was not mentioned in the resolution and there were indi cations some of the sponsoring nations were approaching this suggestion with caution Studies Continued Informed sources said Britain Canada and France were still studying the U 5 suggestion Those four nations and the Soviet Union make up the Disarmament subcommittee The 23nation resolution will be debated at length in the U Ns 82nation Political Committee which must approve before it can be passed on to the General As sembly In addition to control of outer space objects the resolution asked endorsement of suspen sion of nuclear tests with effec tive international control halting of production of fissionable ma terials for war purposes and re duction of already existing nu clear weapon
