With 24 successful tests and two failures, when launch booster sys- tems malfunctioned, the Dominic test series which opened on April 25 apparently is about 85 per cent completed. This will bring it within the two or three months that President Kennedy mentioned in announc- ing last March his decision to re- sume atmospheric testing. The Defense Department said Saturday it now knows what caused the trouble in the attempt- ed launching of a megaton-size device to an altitude of several hundred miles on June 19 from Johnston Island. It cleared the Thor missle booster of responsibility. An anal- ysis, said the department, showed this: Packages containing instru- ments which were fastened to the outside of the rocket upset the smooth flow of air as the rocket started aloft. This air turbulence produced a vacuum effect which sucked the hot breath of the rock- et engine into the interior of the missile. This superheated a por- tion of the Thor's skin and caused it to collapse. The wreckage, including pieces of the nuclear warhead, which did not detonate, fell back onto Johns- ton Island and into the nearby sea. Only injuries were to two workmen who were scratched by fragments of the falling wreck- age, the Defense Department has announced.

"Live together in this magnifi- Garage Apartment Also Burns; Grass Fires Start String By ERNEST THOMPSON A late Saturday night fire demolished the White-Way Laundry and Dry Cleaners, 300 East Twelfth, as fire- men battled five blazes within four hours in Ada. The laundry fire was reported at p.m. It was the biggest and most expensive loss. Firemen brought the flames under control at about p.m. The fire department had all available personnel at the laundry when a second blaze was reported five min- .utes later at 1031 East The fire on East Ninth destroyed a garage apartment. Earlier; the firemen hadimade runs, at and. A fire at 315 North Mississippi "turned out to be a minor one. Then, two grass fires were doused, one on West Sixteenth and the other at. the Municipal Airport. Two Ada youths reported the laundry fire. They said they were passing in a car when they noticed flames licking the back portion of the laundry building which occupies the corner of Twelfth and Constant. When.the fire trucks arrived, the.flames were well underway. In fact, they enveloped the interior of the north side of the building where the boilers are lo- cated. An explosion of unknown origin frightened scores of bystanders about It apparently occurred in the boiler room of the building. Bill Taylor, owner of the laundry, said, the fire evi- dently started in that portion, but Fire Chief Dudley Young noted it was too early to tell the specific place of origin. The over-extended fire department 'staff managed to keep the fire from spreading to nearby buildings, but the laundry itself appeared'to be a complete loss. The garage apartment blaze on Ninth lighted up the sky at the same time smoke was boiling from the laundry building. The apartment belongs to Mrs. Eugene 0. West, 1031 East Ninth. The occupants of the house were Mr. -and Mrs. Rus- sell Smith who moved here just three days ago from Oklahoma City, according to neighbors. Firemen were concerned right after the blaze was discovered about a "live" electric wire dangling in front of the apartment. However, ncbody was injured in the congestion. The fire department sent seven units and 25 firemen to the laundry at p.m. However, the-garage apart- ment blaze was reported about five minutes later, taking one truck and about seven, from'the laundry. The firemen were forced 'the bystanders' who crowded: the" the blaze. At first, they were concerned about a big water-tank in the back of the building. The fire department, wasn't advised of. the contents of the tank, but later found out it was water. The usual deluge of spectators jammed the streets surrounding the laundry building, but apparently didn't hamper the work of the firemen. However, a minor traf- fic jam did congest Ninth Street .where .they were at- tempting to put out the garage apartment.flames.. The laundry was known for many years as The Ada Steam Laundry. In fact, the building was owned by the Ada Steam Laundry Corporation. The fire was the fourth major blaze in Ada's business district within the past six years. Earlier blazes struck the 100 block of East Main (south side of the several business places in the 100 block of West Main (south side) and The Ada Evening News building.
