Ins a Carl Christianson and Roland Descombs Long since tired of cops and robbers space cadets and other kid games hit in something Brand new today. The two Long Island youths Carl 15, and Roland 14, decided to make like Florence Chadwick swimming the English Channel. Long Island sound being the nearest thing to a Channel the Huck finn and Tom Sawyer of 1953 slipped into the sound sans grease and started the swim from Stamford to Shipman Point seven Miles away. Carl who lives in new Hyde Park did the swimming and Roland of Hillside Heights did the rowing in a fashion they had seen in the newsreels. Everything went smoothly and the twosome envisioned themselves As stateside Channel champs with Fame Fortune and All the trimmings. But Luck or rather the tide was against them and the heart broken and exhausted Carl climbed into the Rowboat with his Friend after swimming three hours and approximately four and a half Miles. It took them another three hours to Row to Shipman Point where they beached the boat and appealed to police for assistance. The boys parents were summoned to bring them Home where something else probably awaited them. It was hot in Tophet satan a kingdom the Devil hop Yard and Furnace hollow too. All these places by the Way Are in Connecticut. It was so hot nearly everywhere that it led to All sorts of complications. In Chicago everybody said it was hot enough to Fry an egg. When the thermometer stood it 101 a fellow tried to Fry five eggs on the pavement but they just sort of curdled. Even though it Wasny to actually hot enough to Fry an egg in Chicago it was hot enough for a lawyer there to win Freedom for his client with this simple plea a a it a too hot to be sitting in the county so a judge released a Chap who was stewing Over a burning matrimonial Issue involving separate maintenance. In Waterbury conn., the weather also blessed a Man in a matrimonial Broil. A judge there granted a lawyers plea for postponement of the Case until a the next Rainy it seems the Man has an outdoors construction Job at $20 a Day and would lose his pay if he came to court except on a Rainy Day. The last we heard from Waterbury its still Clear. Speaking of rain the Dallas weather Bureau people held their annual picnic last week. As six meteorologists and three observers began unloading their families at the picnic grounds it began to pour. The weather prophets herded their families under shelter a and then the wind blew the rain in 40-mile gusts. A a done to dramatize this a chief weather Prophet begged a couple of laughing reporters. A after All a predicted possible showers. You had to dress for the weather. In Hagerstown md., a Man undressed for it. He was a naked As the Day he was born a complained a woman neighbor. The Man contended he was in his own House a in the doorway Quot snapped the complainant so that he a slowed Down traffic and brought children in the neighbourhood his punishment a 10-Day suspended jail term. In Worcester mass., a Man overdressed for it when he collapsed from the heat he was found to be wearing five suit Coats a Vest a heavy work shirt trousers and Woolen underwear. The Man gave his occupation a Hermit hit address a no fixed place. Many communities ordered conservation of precious water. In Schenectady n. Y. A woman called police for help. A couple of cops rushed to her House to find two perplexed men knee deep in water in her cellar. A who Are they Quot shouted the Cope. A plumbers Quot screamed the woman. One of the cops waded to the Check valve and turned off the water. In Paterson n. J., a burglar took elaborate pains to break into a tool shop closet. But he did no to take a thing. He found the closet filled with Snow shovels. If that burglars conscience bothers him he might drop Down to Jersey City and Ponder the sign placed on a methodist Church bulletin Board by the pastor a now that you know How hot hell is what Are you going to do about it Quot but the most optimistic note of the heat wave comes from Asbury Park n. There the postmaster puzzled Over a letter from a Little girl requesting a doll a rest and roller skates. It was addressed to Santa Cit a. Losing Lustre As the first target. As a better idea Many favor settling up a space ship or platform above the Earth a satellite whirling around like a Man made Moon. It could keep going in a pre determined orbit its Speed balanced by the pull of Earth a Gravity. Shooting a rocket to the Moon would be a stunt a costly one not Likely to be Light heatedly financed by governments or any Rich Man they said. Unless you could land on the Moon and explore it it would be better to Send a rocket around the Moon taking pictures and gathering other data to be brought Home. The Date of the space age say the experts depend partly upon How much Effort is put into try ing to usher it in. There Are not Only scientific barriers but economic social and political factors the space platform offers Many attractive prospects. Militarily it would be a platform for watching Over potential enemy on Earth and for launching guided missiles at him. For science it could be a revealing new Observatory for Star gazing unhampered by the Earth Blanket of air. It could be a station for research into my Teri res of cosmic and solar radiation and meteors. Serious problems ahead scientists attending the fourth Congress of the International astronautical federation recently in Zurich talked of the very serious problems still ahead to make space travel a reality. Or. Wernher von Braun chief of the u. S. Guided missiles development division at Redstone Arsenal Huntsville Ala., said such a station could be built in to to 15 years if governments set up a coordinated space program now. Freight carrying Roc wets could be sent up to build a Large station carrying a human Crew. It takes tremendous fuel Power to get a rocket going fast enough to escape from Earth a Gravity. But from the space station the Power needed to take jew off for the Moon or elsewhere i a would be far less. A rocket could kick off on a pre figured orbit turn off its Power and fall free in space toward its goal. As yet space is still Only inviting the curious and the daring. 17 dysentery Lases reported a Check of Albuquerque bos petals sunday night revealed 17, cases of dysentery in children during the last week which according to or.
