The incident followed a now familiar pattern. An official of one of (he Soviet satel- lite countries, who had just return- ed from a pilgrimage to the Kremlin, obligingly offered to describe his visit to a French diplomat. He had conferred at some length with the Russian chiefs, the satellite official told the Frenchman, and they had 3 Palestine-Bound B-17's Missing Army Guards Secrets Of Supersonic Speed By .Tames J. Associated Press Aviation Reporter The Air Force plans to send its Bell X-l rocket plane hurtling toward miles an hour In a new series of high speed tests beyond nature's 'sonic This was learned today from per- sons familiar with the lo.np range program for exploring supersonic 'light. That until last of speeds away super-secret information. Security officers forbade any mention of conditions Yeager en- countered In surpassing the speed of from 662 to 762 miles an hour depending upon the variations in temperature at differ- ent altitudes. The fast-flying captain started out once: "As you get past the speed of sound He stop- lopped Five men are known to have smashed through that barrier at altitudes generally about eight to ten miles above the earth.

The Russian lenders had also as- sertotl, however, that one develop- ment would leave them no choice but to order the red army Into action. That was the rearmament ot western Germany by the western powers. Moreover, the Russians had clcnrly intimated, they were inclined to con- sider the establishment of a govern- ment for western Germany as the first step toward German rearma- ment. This conversation was of course reported back to the French for- eign office, n.t It was intended that It should be. Its moaning was per- fectly the facade of the Soviet pence offensive, a grim warning to the French. The episode cccured before the end of the six- power lonclon conference on western Germany. Vet French Ambassador Rene Massltrll. acting on instructions from French Foreign Minister Georges Blclault, agreed to the estab- lishment of n western Gorman gov- ernment at Frankfurt, In that sense, the no doubt carefully re- hearsed warning from Moscow failed. YET IN" ANOTHER sense, this example, of Uio well established Soviet technlciuc of bullying toward one power hris no doubt succeeded. It was pretty nice, I Yeager did say, But he acknowledged he was "nat- urally scared" as he through space crouched in. the cockpit of the tiny plane. Yeager said he has flown the X-l 25 or 30 times, but did not say how many times he topped the speed of sound. Unofficial information is that he has made quite a number of very brief dashes beyond the so-called "barrier."

The idea was trotted out late yesterday by Representative Shafer It drew quick support from several members opposing a peacetime return to selective service and a tentative endorsement from Representative Short (R.-Mo.) who is leading the floor fight against the bill. House leaders said a final vote on the draft may not come until tomorrow, although they still hoped to finish It today. Chairman And- been killed'in a crash, are under- rews (R.-N.

Caccaro Aboard Truman Train En Route to Kansas City, Truman pictured himself today as a champion of the people in their struggle against "special privilege." In platform talks, delivered in a neighborly over-the-back-fence tone, Mr. Truman carried on his appeal warded to the American and votes as his homeward-bound ish governments on the Initiative of French Premier Robert Schuman. The French have proposed n. joint demarche to Moscow by the three powers. The three powers would jiKnln assert (hat the Soviets nre free to Join their zone ot Ger- many r.o the three- western zones. nnd would repeat that the forma- tion of western Clerman government implies no threat whatsoever to the Soviet union. The dual purpose of this demarche would he to placate both the Krrrnlln and French public opinion, which has undoubtedly been deeply disturbed by the agree- ment on western Germany.
