"Dont quote me too strongly on this," the weatherman cautioned. "but it looks as though the cold air moving in from Canada will soon start the mercury Mudding back down to somewhere around normal-normal, that is. for December.

Toady*! forecast shows skies clearing over the New England  a pd mid-Atlantic states, and a ‘little cooler, but still well above normal.” Mild is the word for the southeastern states, including Texas, the Gulf region and the Carolinas, with a little cloudiness and rain.  Westward, the Great Lakes and Tipper Mississippi states and those in the central and northern plains are going to have it “generally fair and rather warm.” But Montana and the Dakotas mav get an advance touch of the weather to come.  Ifs to be fair and warmer in the southwest: scattered showers in the northern Rockies and the North Pacific area, and temperatures a little above normal for the other Rocky Mountain sections and the far west.

LOS ANGELES, Dec. ll. <JF>— A tiny plane with which the army air forces and Bell Aircraft Corp its maker, expect to delve into the uncharted realm of supersonic speed, has successfully completed its first tests.  The XS-1, with 23-year-old Pilot Chalmers (Slick) Goodlin. New Alexandria. Pa., at thecon-  iSi  V V as CU 1  loose  fropi the belly of a B-29 bomber over Muroc Army Air Base Monday. Second after America’s first rocket-propelled plane dropped away from the big bomber Goodie f, U T e< i? ? n the  P° wc r. and the craft darted away with a momentum which the former navy pilot compared to the thrust from a catapult aboard a carrier.  •£n e D ! ane is desi *ned to fly at .700 miles an hour, but Goodlin made no attempt to step it up that high. He loafed along at a mere 550, using first one cylinder. then two, and finally—for only a few seconds—all four.   pIane  was cut loose at 25,000 feet. Goodlin climbed under his own power to 35.000, meantime diving, banking and climbing. He flew for 19 minutes, not quite seven under power, and made a perfect landing with his fuelless engine idle.  The plane’s power is measured in terms of thrust, rather than horsepower. But R. M. Stanley, Li ic, Okla., Bell’s chief engine- cr .  ar } d  designer on the plane, said by the only available means of comparison, the engine could be said to develop 30,000 horsepower. It burns ethyl alcohol, oxidized by liquid oxygen.  The engine is unbelievably small to generate such a tremendous thrust. Without fuel it weighs only 210 pounds, and its overall length is 56 inches. The plane itself is smaller than the average fighter, measuring 31 feet from tail to tip, with a wing span of only 28 feet.  Army authorities emphasized at a press conference that the plane, of almost conventional design, was not designed as a fighter a bomber or any other cspe-cial type of crafy Its mission is purely and specifically to permit investigation of the supersonic speed ranges.

"If Western Europe is inherently communistic and the occupied countries joined the invaders instead of resisting them, then the Russians would succeed. They would in effect simply move their capitals to Rome or Paris.  "In that case, if Europe reallv wanted communism, there would be no point in further fighting.
