(AP) ice particles which spread several great Saturn booster was launched successfully for the sec- ond time today and was deliber- ately blown up after the trial to dump 95 tons of cloud-forming water into the upper atmosphere. With a tremendous roar and spurt of flame, the world's mighti- est known rocket rode 1.3 million pounds of thrust to an altitude of 65 miles. There a signal from the ground detonated dynamite charg- es which ripped the vehicle apart spilling the water into the near- vacuum of space in a bonus exper- iment.

Loser in an abortive attempt Tuesday to get a literacy test measure off the ground, Demo- cratic Leader Mike Mansfield of supporters for Montana rallied another try. But his effort seemed likely to result only in the blast-off of a Southern filibuster. It could drone on for 10 days or more before Mansfield and Senate Republican Leader Everett M. Dirksen of Il- linois reach for a seldom-reliable valve to shut off debate. The cut-off could come only if two-thirds of senators voting ap- prove a debate limitation. This device has never worked when a civil rights bill was up. Led by Sen. Richard B. Rus- sell, D-Ga., the Senate's top tac- tician. Southern opponents forced a postponement Tuesday by the simple expedient of demanding that a quorum be present.

Nuclear weapons have many detonators. To fire, all the deton- ators must function simultaneous- ly. If only one detonator goes, the weapon will not explode. Sources said it is considered virtually impossible for all the detonators to be tripped at once In storage an atomic weapon is inert. It is isolated from -the bat- tery needed to provide the electric power .to trigger the explosion.' To prevent firing through error or sabotage; nuclear weapons are fitted with various control de- ices.- Some switches are placed in hard-to-get-at places, so that a person literally must tear a bomb apart to get at them. Another safety measure in- volves locked and sealed controls mounted in series, but in differ- ent locations. Thus, one important switch could be activated only, by two separate and independent ac- tions sometimes requiring a key, sometimes the breaking of a seal.
