Protestant r Our Chaplains regard their work as a separate vocation like the observed the Right Rev chancellor of theRoman Cath olic Military Ordinariate Their interest plus the fact that about half of the new young Catholic chaplains served in World War II or Korea ina nonreligious capacity are factors in raising the status of the chaplain among men in the ranks he added Some of the endorsing

the armed forces according to Msgr Marbach THIS NEED h in line with a general shortage of Catholic clergy and nuns who are wanted to fill posts in parishes and schools The Ordinariate counts a total of 831 commissioned chaplains now in service about half of them in foreign countries It also lists 233 Veterans Admini stration chaplains 750 civilian auxiliary chaplains who serve the military local areas and 497 chaplains with reserve status Msgr Marbach said Also facing a shortage is the National Jewish Welfare Board of New York which is down 20 from its quota of 100 Jewish chaplains According to Rabbi Lev the shortage results in part because the seminaries which supply all of the new chaplains from their ordination classes are graduating fewer students Each new graduate unless he has served a stint in the armed forces is required to become a chaplain for two years or not be admitted to a rabbinical con ference Force helicopter a Barnslable County and bloodhounds Police got on the

by the United States high over the Pacific last summer dis rupted radio communication in a area and par tially blinded animals 300 miles away The tests conducted over Johnston Island also appar ently loaded the earths mag netic field in the middle lati tudes with artificial radiation intense enough to kill an un shielded space traveler This was disclosed in the tailed official report on prob ably the most spectacular bomb tests ever conducted by any country The explosions one at more than 40 miles altitude and the other at about 20 miles proved that High nuclear shots can black out radio communications and disrupt radar early warning systems over great distances Such bomb tests can be eas ily delected by their blinding light for perhaps miles and for to miles by their auroral and radio ef fects At greater distances how ever they might go undetected and even at to miles it might be impossible to be sure exactly what happened and who did it Such high shots produce neg ligible beat and blast effects on the ground but generate fantastically huge fireballs and brighter than the sun flashes of light which can blind at immense distances faster than a man can blink his eyes
