Iola Register (Newspaper) - October 15, 1957, Iola, Kansas THE REGISTER The WeaiHer Showers VOLUME LX. No. 300. Th The carefully worked out plan covered more than a 12-houp day. It started with a motorcade from Government House, a brief stop at nearby Hull's city hall, a scenic ride and a ceremony-^letonat-ing the first dynamite blast - to start construction of the 31-mil-lion-doUar "Queensway" section of the Trans-Canada Highway. The long day jwiU end with "a government recei>tion at a local hotel, to .which 1,000 were invited, and a formal dinner at Prime M i n i s t e r pri(>d of ,grpwin^.,cpmpe-Wi()n for' hew'^ihdultry.' Mid-America, Inc., now is ready to Ko. Organization details have been, completed. A state charter .labels it as a non-profit corpora tion whose principal purpose is "to promote the establishment and location of industries in southeast Kansa's." � The corporate structure of Mid-America is_ not a complicated one. A steering committee selected at the Persons committee was authorized to take the necessary steps toward organization. That has been done. Fifteen trustees, representing various cities in southeast Kansas, were selected and then officers were elected from amon;} the trustees. otBe \ BmSJt&'smkedlnV.S: Some of the Queen's more fervent rooters describe him in oth,-Bf'terms, riot all of 'thern piririt-' able. ... , - - Muggeridge's' piece appears .in the current Saturday Eyening Post, an American publication. Advance word of it-the title: "Does England Need a Queen?"- trickled over to London aiid the fat is in the fire. SfSinch royalist circles-are as|dng? "Does. England need a Muggeridge?'* Beneath the comic.opera over-' tones, Muggeridge poses some serious questkms - basically the 'fe'^^slnt^^ii^^^'6^ ^'fc^^^ of our rpyal visitors: What is a king or quaen sup- posed to.be, anyhow, in,this 20th century? In Elizabeth's case, a symbol b? a rialttbri and a commonwealth above politics? A sort of rallying point for the loyalties of duchesses and ditch^iggers alike, to say nothing of Australian loin-cloth WGorers and respectr able citizens of Kitchener, Ont. Muggeridge indicates . he'd say yies to all of this. His point is that Elizabeth II isn't properly coached for. her job. He argues (as did young Lord Altrincham; who got punched in the snoot for saying it) that the Queen is surrounded And the result,- -aoBra ridf�, Is that th� ()uMn gets criU- cized by her own class as. "(jowdy, fruixipi.sh and banajj' - in. other words! "bibdly iJresscd and sorvi'f*! thing of a dope-instead of appearing , as "a useful, unifying element in a soeiety full of actual and potential discord." Well, this is one for our former British kinfolk to settle and not for us. ' We read of Elizabeth's fabulous jewel^-the diamond arid pearl circlet handed down from Queen Victoria, the Australian pendant [ppal set among 180 diamonds, and all the others. We remember her British and call them "smashing" -on her previous visit here. The (C�B(law4 �a Page 3, N�.

Scientists In Session With Ike WASHINGTON I^PI - President Eisenhower today met with the 13 members of his .science advisory committee for a 4,'i-minute discussion of earth .satellites and missiles-Russian and .American. Neither the White House nor the scientists would disclose what was said. Dr. Isador Rabi, chairman of the committee, told reporters, "anything you want you will have to get from the President's office." And White House press secretary James C. Ilagcrty told them they would get nothing. Hagerty earlier had told newsmen the conference was called before Riussia's Sputnik bcRan its 18,000-mile-an-liouv orbit unnuid a startled and fascinated world 11 days ago. Dr. Rabi, professor of physics at Cohunhia University, said he and his crffleagues had "a privileged meeting" with the President, but that it would not be appropriate for. them to discuss what was said. He also declined to he drawh out on whether the U. S. ballistic mi.sRile and earth satellite programs should be speeded up. Reports from both sides of the country said Sputnik had been sighted early today. Ambassador G. L. Mehta of India said he saw it from the terrace of the Indian Emba.ssy in Washington at dawn today. Rooftop observers in San Francisco said they saw Sputnik or one of its celestial traveling companions nl daybreak there. They said it was plainly visible to the nuked eye. known force" that apparently is acting on the moonlet, causing variations in its orbit. . Ur. J.. Allen Ilynek, as.sociate director of the Smithsonian Astro-physical Observatory, said in Cambridge, Mass., thai findings concerning the force confirmed reports from the Naval Research Laboratory in Washington, Hynek said the inforniation was "very puzzling," and ' added the findings might account for variations in Sputnik's timetable. He said the satellite's orbital plane apparently is turning faster as a result of the force, thus preventing electronic computers from accurately determining the orbit on the basis of normal gravity. But, he went on, gravity still accounts for 99 per cent of the total force acting on Sputnik. Rep. Scrivner Here Thursday Congressman Errett P. Scrivner, who represents this district in the national Congress, will spend Thursday in lola, meeting friends and discussing the last session of Congress. He will attend a luncheon in the Hotel Kelley which is being aiiranged by Walter S. Fees, county GOP chairman, and will be in the courthouse from 2 to 3 p. m.
