S.-British satellite and an American- Japanese probe have given rise to hopes the United States and Russia will eventually combine their great resources for an all-out assault on space. An American Thor-Delta rocket Thursday blasted a packet of British experiments into orbit as the world's first international satellite. Its purpose is to study the ionosphere and cosmic radiation. Earlier, at Wallops Island, Va., a U. S. Nike-Cajun sounding rocket boosted a small bundle of Japanese instruments on a brief 75- mile-high trip to take readings in the upper atmosphere. British Prime Minister Harold Macmillaa, speaking in New York Thursday night, named the satellite "Ariel" said: "This joint enterprise reflects great credit on the British and American scientists and technici- U.S. Plans Next Shot For Venus PASADENA Calif. En- couraged by success of the crip- pled spacecraft Ranger 4 in hit- ting the moon, U.S. space scien- tists today disclosed plans to launch a similar rocket called Mariner toward Venus this sum- mer. Mariner will be boosted into space by the same Atlas-Agena B combination that aimed Ranger 4 so accurately it landed on the mon even though electronic fail ures prevented mid-flight correc- tions. Four Months Banger 4's journey, ended on the far side of the moon Thursday, took 64 hours. Mariner will take four months to reach Venus, 26 million miles away. Current plans call for Mariner to pass within miles of Venus but scientists -at the. jet propulsion laboratory, builder of both Ranger and Mariner, believe it could hit that planet if plans were changed. Instrument Load Although the Mariner space ve hide weighs 230 pounds less than Kanger 4's 780, it too will be loaded with scientific instruments. These will measure Venusian tern- (Continued on Two) Nine Area FFA Members Win Highest Degree Nine area Future Farmers ol America members were awarded the Junior Master Farmer de- gree Thursday afternoon during the 36th annual state FFA con- vention on the Oklahoma State University campus in Stillwater.

It provides a fine start to the United States program of international cooperation in space." The launchings occurred during a day of crowded 'space activity. Other developments: 1. The U.S. Ranger 4 spacecraft crash-landed on the dark side of the moon after a 64-hour, mile journey that started Monday at Cape Canaveral. Although Ran ger 4 failed to carry qut'a number of scientific experiments because of a faulty electronic device, of- ficials said it .demonstrated the United States had the guidance capability to send a vehicle to the moon. 2. Space scientists disclosed plans to send a similar rocket to- ward Venus this summer, called Mariner and will It's be boosted by the same Agena E combination that aimed Ranger. 3. The Russians announced the launching-of their fourth. scien- satellite in six weeks. The Soviets said the vehicle, Cosmos 4, carried radiation-measuring and other scientific grear. There was some speculation'the recent wave of Russian satellites have been sent up to gather data on America's series of nuclear tests in the Pacific. 4. Two secret satellites wi launched by the Air Force at Point Arguello, Calif. One cm- ployed a Blue Scout booster, the other an Atlas-Agena B, which has been used primarily for Mi- das and Samos spy satellites. Sources at Cape Canaveral, where Blue Scouts also are launched, in- dicated the Blue Scout failed to place its payload in orbit. The De- fense Department recently de- cided to withhold all information on military space launchings. 5. It was learned that, at a ses- sion today of the International As- sociation of Geodesy in Washing- ton, some further details were to be made public on the proposed Anna satellite, which would in- volve use of a flashing light for visually observing earth satel- lites. U.S. and British scientists were jubilant at their successful satel- lite firing and celebrated with a party Thursday night. Robert Gray of the U.'S.

Do- brynin scheduled a-new meeting on Berlin today in spite of-the angry dispute between Moscow and Washington over U.S. resump- tion of nuclear atmospheric tests. As the two prepared to: meet, there was speculation that the sec- ond test in series might be touched1 off today or first was fired on Wednesday over the Pacific' test- ing area.

Few details are but sources said one part of the. plan was to use transport planes' to rain concussion bombs on the Communist-infested South Vietna- mese jungle. The aim would be to burst the eardrums of Communist guerril: las, crippling: 'them" for''.further combat and demoralizing .those, who were not injured. Some prob- ably would be killed by fragments; but that would not be the main purpose. A concussion bomb relies for its effect on the blast of its detona- tion rather than the fragmenta- tion of its case. The planes would be loaded with hundreds of-the.charges on special racks, the sources said.

A barrage of telephone calls, telegrams and state- ments hit the Pentagon aft- er the Army's National Guard Bureau Wednesday sent out the plan to. all 50 states, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico. One of the many objectors, Iowa's Gov. Norman Erbe; inter- preted tlie action as an order and said1 lie would-not comply. Caught in the middle was Maj; Uen. Donald.W. McGowan, chief of. the Guard who was carrying out Pentagon orders to reduce the guard by about McGowan said the plan -was a proposal, not an order, and he stressed that law requires approv- al by a governor before a unit Steel Leaders Issue Appeals NEW YORK industry appeals to the.pub- lic not to pre-judge the case have followed a federal grand jury's indictment of the United States Steel Corp., Bethlehem. Steel Co. and two other steel companies on charges of violating the antitrust laws by conspiring to; fix prices and rig bids. The appeals'were made by the president of U. S. ateei and the president of one of the smaller companies.' The indictment made charges against five: company executives and a, trade association. The stock market reacted quick-. y to the indictment Thursday.
