PRICE SIX CENTS CENSURE PRECEDENT Blood on Sheppard's Trousers Scientist Says Pictures Could Be Taken for Television Screen on Earth. WASHINGTON (INS) super-weapons expert foresaw Tuesday an "island in the sky" which could peer through the Iron Curtain and thus give the U. S. a "terrific" military advantage. Dr. Wernher von Braun, world- renowned authority on outer space and the man who developed Ger- many's World war II V-2 rockets, said development of such an "island" is only a matter of "time, money and hard work'." Dr. Von Braun, who came to this country after the war, now heads the guided missile development di- vision of the Redstone arsenal at Huntsville, Ala. The scientist, in a talk before the Women's National Press Club, pictured the creation of a rocket circle tK.e.earth froni pole to pole once'every 45 min- utes the earth itself Pass over every part of 'the wxDrld at least once every 24 hours. Prediction Shared. He said that optical equipment on such a rocket, tuned to televi- sion screens on earth, could see through the Iron Curtain. His prediction in this respect was shared by Andrew J. Haley, president of the American Rocket Society, a guest at the dinner. Haley told a reporter that his only difference with Von Braun is that he (Haley) thinks it feasible to utilize existing objects in outer and er than build an artificial satel- lite, y Haley said in 1 an interview: "With existing equipment, we could see clcai-ly from miles above the earth's surface every signifi- cant aspect of the terrain and the activities of-mankind." Both Von Braun'and Haley said it would be possible to-read the in- struments on tKte rocket with'out having men aboard the "sky island." Von Braun said that once the earth-circling rocket is a fact, 'it would be possible to put animals and eventually, men, on the satel- lite. May Be Race With Russia. He suggested that Russia is rac- ing this country for the first world- circling rocket. He said: "If we don't build an artificial satellite soon, other nations will." He added that Russian magazines have discussed satellite possibili- ties. The most logical approach to ouilding the satellite, he said, would be to put a rocket "piggy back" on a supersonic plane. In this connection, Von Braun said that supersonic planes have attained the speed of miles an figure about 150 miles an hour faster than has been men- tioned by defense officials. Asked how quickly this country could build the revolving "island in the sky" if money were no prob- lem, Von Braun replied: "I would think in 10 or 15 years- it would depend on -the priority giv- en." The scientist, who is now only 42, said the earth satellite would be "a most important jumping-off station" for eventual flights to the moon and other' planets.

"I am now nearing the end of my Churchill said to an unprecedented gathering of both houses of Parliament in ancient Westminster Hall. "I shall never forget the emo- tions of this day."

WASHINGTON (UP) Sen. Ernest S. Brown (R- Nev) told the Senate Tues- day that censure of Sen Jo- seph R. McCarthy would es- tablish a dangerous precedent limiting congressional investiga- tions.' Brown, who was appointed last summer to succeed the late Sen. Pat McCarran was the first speaker under a debate limitation agreement that will bring the prolonged, turbulent McCarthy censure debate to a showdown Wednesday or Thurs- day. It was Brown's first major speech in the Senate. Presenting a detailed, legal argument against censure of Mc- Carthy, Brown made these points: 1. There is no precedent un- der which a senator can be cen- sured for remarks not made on the floor of the Senate. "Has Lesser Right." To establish this precedent would mean that a senator has a lesser right" than a private citizen -to- criticize his own gov- ef hmenh ..'.._. 'j... 2. Censuring McCarthy Tor his conduct as chairman of the Sen- ate Permanent Investigations Subcommittee would mean the Senate is "abrogating its power and authority" under the Con- stitution to obtain information essential for the legislative pro- cess. 3. Referring to McCarthy's al- leged "abuse" of an elections subcommittee in 1951-52, Brown argued there is no precedent whereby one session of Con- gress can censure a senator for acts committed in a prior Con- gress. Brown said that if the censure resolution is approved "the en- tire machinery of the legisla- tive investigation may be stopped." Boost for Compromise. McCarthy's supporters claimed that the Senate's decision to bring the censure issue to a vote this week was a boost for their drive lw obtain a compromise.

After months of wrangling and- maneuvering, the Senate unani- mously agreed Monday night to put a harness on its historic debate, beginning Tuesday, and to start voting at 3 p. m. Wednesday. The final verdict may come Wednesday night or Thursday. McCarthy himself led the quick- showdown effort and he linked it with a statement assuring those he is accused of abusing that he didn't mean to hurt their feelings al- though his basic views remain un- changed. Sen. John C. Stennis a member of the censure committee, said Tuesday that McCarthy's ac- tion will have no significant effect In the LeMars area an inch Sen" snow had fallen by a. m. and
