KGLO 1300 WOI Amei HTAD Qulncy WSUI City pm Sunday pm Tuesday pm Thursday Li 15 pm Saturday Control of Outer Space THIS LITTLE VISIT with you is to be about the control of outer space If I had dealt with this subject a scant five years ago it would have been neces sary to do a lot of explaining and backgrounding But such wont be necessary how I approach the assignment with a knowledge that more than a few among my hearers will know a great deal more about the ter than I do Im thinking of course of those youngsters with a bent for science some of them no further along in their educa tional process than junior high school My first concern about outer space came about three years ago when I spent an hour in the presence of a scholar charged with one important phase of this international geophysical year Even then there was a plan to send an artificial moon into orbit in March of this year My fel low editors and I were fascinated by the prospect IN HIS TALK he explained that the world around in cluding those of Russia were working on the farflung program as a team There was just one common aim that of drawing the curtains further apart and throw ing additional light on the nature of our world and our universe Our scientists made the same mistake our statesmen did at San Francisco in 1945 They believed the Communists Nearly a huni dred vetoes in UN have been a re flection of the Kremlins insincer ity or dishonesty if you want the precise word at San Francisco Sputnik No 1 was a reflection of Russias deceit in this interna tional geophysical year effort But the point I am getting to is that it was the Russian launch ing of an earth satellite last Octo ber that threw the importance of outer space control into a bold relief on the curtain of the fu ture Theres a real uneasiness about whats going to happen on the moon if the Russians should happen to get there first ONCE PPINION was divided among scientists as to whether space travel for man is possible Today however theres pretty close to unanimous agreement that trips to the moon are with in the foreseeable future The only real question is whether it will be 10 years 25 years or 50 years from now Down through the centuries na tions have laid claim to territory on a basis of discovery If this pattern known to Columbus Ma gellan Vasco da Gama and the Cabots were to prevail in outer space it could lead to a Russian owned moon Thats a bit on the terrifying side when we consider Demonstrations Over Hungarian Executions Flare AP YOU DIDNT HAVE TO TAKE SO Pamela Evarts Minneapolis shares her
