Abilene Reporter-News, The (Newspaper) - April 30, 1962, Abilene, Texas "WITHOUT OR WITH OFFENSE TO FRIENDS OR FOES WE SKETCH YOUR WORLD EXACTLY AS IT 81ST YEAR, NO. 317 ABILENE, TEXAS, MONDAY MORNING, APRIL 30, SIXTEEN PAGES IN PAGE ONE WASHINGTON Few of us ordinary folk will argue that in this space atomic era the new brain of the new generation is an awesome thing. Over there are bunches of youthful scientists hammering on the nucleus of the atom in an rifort to learn the mysteries of the makeup of matter. Yonder sre other young geniuses bent on assaulting the massiveness of the universe. And here are the rest of us trying to make a living with time only to. cast an ofjcasional bewildered glance at the scientific goings-on. There has been assembled in Washington the last few days an amazing display of the new braiipower this country possess- es, the gathering of the Ameri- can Physical Society, and it seemed a good idea to go look at and listen to the young fellows. This much we could determine with ease. The American Physi- cal Society is only incidentally interested in biceps. It is a pro- fessional organization of the na- tion's physicists and some thous- and of them were present. Be- tween them they hold more than three thousand academic de- grees, near as we could calcu- late. The meeting looked about'like, say, a gathering of a junior bar association. There were some frosty temples, but for the most part the physicists seemed to range in age from late 20's to mid-30's and almost to a man were the clean-cut, business-suit types. Women were not much in evi- dence at the speakings. There were a few female physicists, but convention going wives didn't seem to take to the tech- nical gatherings. They had gone shopping, or had taken the kids to the Four Nobel Prize winners were on the program. We dodg- ed such things as "Excited Pnonon Gamma Emission in the Rare Earth" but we, did happen in on Nobelman Eugene VVjyier of Princeton as he told ot measurement. That seemed a safe enough subject lo pursue, measurement. But we quickly discovered Dr. Vvigner fliun't nave in mind leet and inches. We couldn't understand the good doctor at first so we asked a young scientist to help. He did by pointing out that Wigner was using German. That was a.re- liel to know. But then Dr. Wig- ner switched to English and it was really 110 better. To savvy Wigner, the young- ster explained, we had to know tne concepts of empiricism, ra- tionalism, logical positivism and quantum mecnanics. We didn't. So we couldn't. The youngster explained. Dr. Wigner was talking of the quan- tum mechanical interpretation or signilicance of the process of measurement. At that moment we did catch these Wigner words as he point- ed to a diagram: "This is some- what difficult to comprehend." With that we could agree. We didn't exactly understand some ol the physicists' humor. At one point Nobel Prizeman Morgenau made a small joke and there was laughter. We didn't catch it at first be- cause it was in German. Some- one translated. Morgenau was giving the dichim of the new physicist as opposed to the Ein- stein physicist. His quip went something like this: "God thinks in pure states. But man must think nf von Neumann mixtures in Hilbert space." Little of the physicists' talk of accelerators to bust up the atom, of formulae, .of advanced concepts soaked in. But it was comforting to know these brains arc ours for tucked away in them, we understand, are many of the "secrets" which make up and which lead to the country's security. NEWS INDEX UCTKM A UK 11 it RESCUER COMFORTS VICTIM Jack Manzella, right, of Houston, attempts to eomfort boating mishap victim, Raymond Henry, 32. Henry was in a boat which capsized in the Gulf of Mexico near Houston Sunday. Three children drown- ed and three persons are still missing, including Henry's son, Danny Ray, 12. Manzella saw Henry clinging to a gasoline can about 3 hours after the mishap and pulled him to safety. (AP Wirephoto) 3 Die, 3 Missing In Boat Mishap HOUSTON (AP) Three small children drowned and three other persons are missing after a big wave from a passing ship cap- sized a 16-foot outboard motor- boat in Galveston Bay Sunday. Eight persons were in the motor- boat. Galveston County Deputy Sher- iff Truman Stone quoted one of the survivors, Raymond H. Henry, -35, of Houstor as saying the wave came upon the small craft so suddenly they "didn't even have time to look around." Stone identified the aead as Guy Wesley Smith, years old; Charles Smith Jr., 5; and Betty Smith, 4. Missing are the parents of the drowned children, Charles Smith, 35, and Mrs. Betty Jo Smith 26, both of Houston, and Danny Ray Henry, 12, son of Raymond Henry. Rescued in addition to Henry was 9-year-old daughter of the Smith's, Margaret Elizabeth. Stona quoted Henry as saying they had borrowed the boat from a friend and put it in the water near the Texas City dike, a ?-mile long breakwater about 45 miles southeast of here that protects the Texas City" Ship Channel, at '9 a.m. for a boating trip in Galves- ton Bay. Henry said the motorhoat was about miles from shore and off the dike when the wave struck it about 1.1 a.m. The accident went unreported until p.m. when two passing fishermen found Henry clinging to the boat's gas tank. They brought him to shore and notified the Coast Guard. Henry was taken to a Galveston hospital in a state of shock. A short time later three other Rshermen came upon Margaret Elizabeth Smith floating in a life- jacket. The Coast Guard sent boats and a plane to the accident scene. Rescue boats, searching in a sys- tematic pattern, recovered the bodies of the three children about 10 miles north of the accident Stalin Photo Up in China TOKYO (AP> A portrait of Stalin has gone up in Peiping's main square in preparation for May Day, Red China's New China news agency said Monday. But there was no mention of a portrait of Premier Khrushchev, who denounced Stalin and since has feuded with Red China for pursuing the Stalinist doctrine of inevitable war with capitalism. The agency said Stalin's image was put up, along with those of Marx, Engels and Lenin, in the Tienanman Square now being dec- orated for the coming internation- al Labor Day. A huge portrait of Communist China leader Mao Tzc-Tung and giant red lanterns on the main gate to the square, attract huge crowds of spectators, the agency said. "The glow of red lanterns and myriads of lights on buildings, and the arrival of a large number of foreign guests are giving a festive air to the Chinese capita! as May Day draws said the dispatch broadcast by Radio Peiping.

Berry's wife and Mrs. Fab- wegian passenger-cargo ship and Greek freighter collided in dense fog at the mouth of Chesa- peake Bay Sunday. Two persons died and three were injured in the collision. All the casualties were aboard the Norwegian vessel, the Taran- tel, which was slashed open from water line to deck when struck amidships by the bow of the Greek ship, Hellenic Splendor. Late Sunday, tugs fought to save the Tarantel from sinking but their effort temporarily was halted when the stricken vessel ran lightly aground four miles east of Cape Henry. A Coast Guard spokesman said the passenger-cargo ship went aground when one of the towing her toward the Newport News shipyard experienced en- gine failure. Other salvage ves- sels immediately began efforts to pull the Tarantel free and resume the tow. The two killed aboard the Tar- antel were identified by the Coast Guard as Richard Berry, about M, of Westfield, N.

A single survivor rescued by the Swedish ship Nag- asaki reached Hong Kong Sunday and told story. Chu Buii-lau. the survivor, said he was from a peoples commune near Swatow and fled wit'i 22 others because of hardship and hunger. A British navy destroyer and 10 helicopters went to the area where the junk had capsited but returned without swing signs of other wrvivort. riani's husband, an Italian diplo mat reportedly en route to Ma- laya for a new assignment, were slightly injured and hospitalized here but released. A 26th person from the Taran- tel, August Hjordy, 23, a Dane and second officer aboard the ship, was flown ashore earlier by helicopter to the U.S. Public Health Service Hospital for treat- ment. Hjordy suffered a broken nose and a cut forehead. There were no injuries on the Hellenic Splendor, whose bow was bashed in by the collision. The Hellenic Splendor was out- bound from Chesapeake Bay, en route from Baltimore to Philadel phia, and the Tarantel was in- for Newport News from New York when they came to- gether in a grinding crash at a.m. in fog that shrouded the mouth of the bay. Agnes Knapp, of Flushing, N.Y., a passenger on the Tarantel, said she had been up for an hour be- fore the collision "and all I could see was fog." Just before the collision, she said, she went then I heard a crash." For the next hour or so. Mrs. Knapp said, they worked pretty fast, get ting posses- sions together and readying for evacuation. Tons of baggage were aboard the 82-foot Coast Gjard cutter when it came into the Little Creek Coast Guard station with its hu- man cargo from the Tarantel. The Coast Guard said the No. 4 hold of the Tarantc! was flooded and there was some seepage into the No. 5 hold as, with Ihe aid 'if tugs and salvage vessels, she fought to reach the safety of the shipyard.

Kennedy showed Macmillan the White House grounds before lunch, then accompanied the prime minister to his limousine upon departure. Macmillan left Washington Na tional Airport at p.m. aboard a Canadian government Viscounf airliner on the two-hour flight to (Ottawa.

The communique pledged Amer ica and Britain to continue to work toward progress toward dis armament, including the endinj of nuclear tests whict: the United Slates resumed this week.
