IM1IA. Oct. 31 fl'PI) Prime Minister Jawaharlal ousted V. K. Krishna Menon defense minister today and took o.ver the post himself. Krishna Menon was named min- ister ot defense production in the shakeup which becomes effective tomorrow. The change, which had anticipated, came as fighting situ-; mered down to two exchanges ot j artillery and small arms fire in the last 24 hours for the quietest day since the border shooting in- tensified 11 day? ago. Krishna Menon. who will remain a member of the cabinet in his new job, has been blamed for much of the ineffectiveness oC the Indian army in resisting the advances of the Communist invaders from tlio north. Critics charged that Krishna Menon had not made adequate plans for defense and had not equipped the Indian army with automatic arms since he became defense minister years afro. As one observer said, the Indian army was a. fine walking force equipped to fight World War I. But, initially, it was no match for the Red Chinese, who were well- equipped with fast-firing small nrms, heavy mortars and ions- range artillery. Nehru and Krishna Menon have been old friends since the days before Indian independence, and the prime minister in the past al- ways had angrily and heatedly defended him against all critics. But the initial setbacks in the BRIDGE LINKS A pair ot beauty queens, Sandra Yukich of Sault St. Marie, Ont. (left) Mary Beth Robinson of Sault Ste.

'Winking Star' U.S. Satellite Orbiting Earth Pear-Shaped World Must Be Mapped Over Again i CAPE CANAVERAL. Oct. 31 (UPI) The United States today, rocketed a "winking star" satellite into orbit to help missilemen and i map makers cope with the prob- lems of a pear-shaped world. The 355-pound satellite, named was blasted into space by a two-stage Thor-Able-Star rocket launched at a.m. today. After normal separation of the booster, the second stage ignited on time and sent the .moonlet whirl- ing into orbit. The second stage was re-fired as scheduled minutes later in an effort to make the orbit as nearly circular as possible about 700 miles above earth. The first serious experiments with the Anna satellite are expect- ed to come in days, after scientists have had a chance to j firmly establish just what sort of orbit it is in. Anna is a ball-shaped assortment, of radio transmitters and light beacons brighter than the beams from most lighthouses. It is a strange sort of satellite in a strange sort of program. The shot was planned as part of a million geodetic program whose goal is to find out literally what shape earth is in, From it may come all sorts of practical benefits, including aid to missilemen in drawing a better bead on their targets and geograph- ers in the charting of .the most j accurate maps 'ever' 'devised. But j between the launching pad snd the j final results is a somewhat wild j mathematical road.

Mapmakers were dis- mayed to find that their charts, calculated meticulously on a sim- ple round earth, didn't quite cover a pear-shaped one.

This, in turn, dis- tressed missilemen who have to know such things to plot exact trajectories for nuclear-tipped mis- siles forming the nation's defenses. Added to these woes is the new- ly acquired knowledge that earth not only resembles a pear, but a rather poorly shaped pear at that. It now seems there are little bulges and valleys on big bulges and val- leys. This really put things in a twaddle. The solution, scientists say. is j to measure things all over again.
