Independent, The (Newspaper) - November 14, 1957, Pasadena, California. Satellite to be launched tomorrow reporter claims by Egbert s. Allen t. Ike Washington. The first is. Satellite is to be launched tomorrow that is it will be launched if All goes Well with preparations being furiously rushed to completion by the scientists and officials directing the Navy s operation Van guard. Ii the Friday target Date is not realized the Vanguard satellite will be shot into outer space As soon thereafter As possible. In any event this greatly accelerated launching will take place before thanksgiving Day. Navy authorities have Laid this Down As a the Vanguard satellite will be 6.4 inches weighing four pounds. It will be orbited around 300 Miles above the Earth by a three stage missile. The army s Jupiter a intermediate Range ballistic mis Sile which defense Secretary Mcelroy ordered to supplement the Vanguard project has reached Heights in excess of 620 Miles covered More than Miles and speeds upwards of . Some Pentagon missile experts Are privately of the opinion the army will orbit a satellite with the Jupiter a ahead of a Vanguard sphere. However there is a big difference Between the two satellites. The Vanguard satellite is designed especially for Earth girdling purposes. The 6.4-Inch sphere will contain two radios one for tracking arid the other for transmit Ting atmospheric data. Instruments in the Jupiter a satellite will be of a More limited Type. Following Are publishable highlights from a Navy research Laboratory memorandum describing what will take place in the impending satellite launching the three stage vehicle takes off vertically under first stage Power. It ascends in a smooth curve Tilting gradually from the Vertille in the direction to the South East of the intended orbit at first stage burnout the vehicle is about 36 Miles above the Earth and is travelling at an Angle of roughly 45 degrees to the Vertille. Then the first stage separates from the other two stages and coasts to an Impact about 230 Miles from the launching Point the second stage ignites immediately upon separa Tion from the first stage and proceeds under its own Power on a progressively inclined trajectory to an Altitude of about 140 Miles. At burnout it has a Vertille velocity sufficient for ascent to about 300 Miles Altitude and a horizon Tal velocity that is about half the required Orbital velocity of feet per second or approximately Miles per r. Or. The nose Cone is jettisoned Midway in second stage powered flight no separation occurs at second stage Burn out. The second third stage combination coasts Forward a distance of about 700 Miles in ascending to the 300-mile third stage projection Altitude. During this coasting period several important functions Are performed. The two stage vehicle is brought to the Correct orientation roughly tangential to the Earth s surface for projection of the third stage. Then the third stage is imparted the rotation necessary for stable flight at this Point the vehicle is so to speak fully committed no further control can be exceeds de. Separation of the payload will occur after third stage burnout. At burning s end the third stage will have a velocity vector of some direction and magnitude. Owing to the accumulation of errors in second stage orientation in Sens ing second stage Zenith and in third stage stability during firing the final velocity vector can hardly be truly Tangen tial to the Circle. However the vehicle is designed to have a final velocity in excess of that required for a circular orbit this excess represents an essential margin for error. The period of the satellite in its orbit will be about 90 weather variable cloudiness but sunny at times today and to Morrow. Little temperature change. High today near 70. Yesterday 64-48.

Field director. The Olu Oral. Poll the possibility of the California democratic party capturing its first . Senate seat in 14 years seems very Good at this year away from the 1958 general election. Neither governor Goodwin Knight nor san Francisco mayor George Christopher has an Edge Over congressman Clair Engle who has been mentioned most prominently As a democratic candidate. Because the senatorial race is still in a highly unsettled state voting appears to be As much influenced by party preference As by personalities and issues at this time. Poll taken immediately following Knight s dramatic withdrawal from the gubernatorial race and his announcement that he would run instead for senator California poll Opin Ion reporters interviewed a Cross Section of voters in All parts of the state. Results indicate that if an election were held today in the senatorial race Between governor Knight and the leading democratic contender at this time congressman Clair Engle of red Bluff voters would pre Fer Engle by a close margin. Here is the vote if i were voting today i would vote for Democrat Engle .45 Republican Knight.42 undecided .13 the question1 if Goodwin Knight Republican were running again is Clair Engle Democrat which one do you think you would vote for if you were voting today if Well if you had to make in your mind today a we Rich one would probably vote activities on the controversial Hirn wide publicity. He has Ehan. Pinned the cause of. Federal development of water re problems Promise to be a prominent Issue in the election next year. While Engle is popular in his own right there is no doubt that much of is strength shown in his report is due to his democratic party affiliation change of political intentions had pop Hested for several weeks before his actual entry i hip race. J after first announcing that he would seek re election As governor he encountered stiff opposition from senator William Knowland who also had his sights set on that office. Surveys published by the California poll in february and in september of this year showed that Knowland had somewhat greater strength among republicans than Knight did. After reportedly heeding the urging of Republican party leaders to withdraw from the gubernatorial race and Avert a Republican schism Knight made known his intention to run for senator instead. This brought Strong protest from san Francisco s mayor George Christopher another Republican contender for the senatorial Nomina Tion who claimed Knight had vowed he would not run for Christopher s Rise at this Early stage Christopher is not As Strong a candidate against Engle Knight is although he has not yet begun campaigning on the scale that the governor has.

His1 main support today comes from Northern California where he is Best known. Whether his stature will grow or diminish on a statewide scale As he debates political issues with his opponents remains to be seen. Political assets governor Knight has proven himself to be a potent vote getter in California. One of his chief political assets in previous elections has been his Strong following among voters whose Basic party affiliation is democratic. This is a prime requisite for any successful California Republican candidate since a majority of registrants Are demo cratic. However to be successful a Republican candidate also has to have nearly unanimous Republican voter backing. While governor Knight could win the Republican nomination for senator if it were held today he does so with Only a Bare majority of the votes. When Republican voters in the poll s Sample of California were asked which of these three men would be your first Choice if you were voting today for they divided this Way Knight Christopher Engle and undecided this question resembles the primary ballot choices that republicans would be faced with if Engle a Democrat Cross files inside today s Independent to fill up the Gas tank and sped away without paying.
