EDITION VOL in Associated Preti and Untied Prew International Full MASON CITY IOWA FRIDAY DECEMBER 2S WJ IDc Paper Coaslets at Two 27S 9 P is expensive j necessary billion next year By JOSEPH L MYLER WASHINGTON UPI It costs hundreds of millions of doljars to develop and test a Skybolt missile whether you buy it or not You cant even take a three man moonship through its changing early design phases without spending sizeable frac tions of a billion bucks Consider a comparatively cheap item like the experiment al fivepound atomic power gen erator used in two of the Tran sit navigational satellites Its fuel alone cost a pound So perhaps it shouldnt come as a surprise to learn from the National Science Foundation that the government is spending billion a year on research and development otherwise known as Without R D we would never have had John Glenns Mercury spacecraft the Mariner II Venus probe or all those Atlas Titan1 Minuteman and Polaris missiles which protect US security Still billion is a lot of money when you stop to think that does not involve the of things but merely the cost of nursing them to the point where they may or may not be worth purchasing The science foundations billion estimate was for R D in the fiscal year ending next June 30 This is an increase of billion or 31 per cent over the billion spent for the same purposes in the fiscal year ended last July 1 Before 1919 there never was a federal budget as big in its en tirety as this billion which the government is not spending on research and development alone Chicago to take action Hog odor lingers on CHICAGO rei9n hat ended but Hie lingers on Chicago hac lost its title of hog butcher of the world but the fragrance emanating from the oncebuttling union stockyards still serves as a vivid reminder of days gone by However even this link with the past must go James Fitzpatrick the city air pollution control director said that next year the stock yards from whence illwinds wafted across the Chicago area to the suburb of Evans ton some IS miles away will lose their aroma Fitzpatrick said the main sources of the odor were large manure piles and two render ing plants He said Darling Co owner of one plant has budgeted to eliminate the air pollution problem The General Rendering Co a sub sidiary of Wilson Co has promised to submit an odor control program within 60 days Since Chicago is still a ma jor livestock sales point ma nure piles have been allowed to accumulate until the mater ial could be sold as fertilizer The piles kept getting bigger and Fitzpatrick said adding that you can only sell fertilizer a couple of times a year He predicted that when the worlds biggest barnyard loses its punch residential property values will rise in the area He said that much of the area left unused by de parture of the packing plants could be used for other in dustrial purposes once the odors quit frustrating re development of the property CLOUDY Jb Fiveday Iowa Temperatures will average near normal

total budget merci fully hasnt grown along with R D is indicated by the fact that overall federal spending for this year is estimated at billion This years budget is billion bigger than the entire billion federal budget of the World War I year of 1918 The government during George Washingtons two terms 178991 spent only for all purposes Science and tech nology not to mention inflation have grown since those days It costs a billion dollars nowadays just to develop an atomic air plane engine to the place where you realize you cant use it This years RAD budget wont be the biggest ever ac cording to the science founda tion It saidits findings point to a continuous the na tional investment in military space and atomic energy de velopment programs as well as to greater national support of programs concerned with health and natural resources In the 15 years since fiscal 1948 spending has in creased from 25 per cent of the entire budget to about 13 per cent The Defense Department is the biggest spender among the agencies Its figure for the current year is bil lion compared to billion last year The National Aeronautics and Space Administration which hopes to land men on the moon before 1970 is coming up fast It expects to double its R D funds from billion in the year ended June 30 to billion in the year ending next June 30 The foundation said the Atomic Energy Commission and the Department of Health Edu cation and Welfare also show large gains in R D spending About fourfifths of all th money the science foundation Mid is spent outside the gov Most of it 65 per cent goes
