Moe Karto said a formal state ment announcing this action is be ing prepared by the embassy. He said Sukarno is tired and needs a and will go to a neighbouring Friendly the ambassador said he did not know where that would be. The statement will say that Sar Tono is prepared to assume the Post of acting president Moe Karto added. I think this is an indication the government has Confidence the situation is in Moe Karto declared. Otherwise president Sukarno would not leave the coun space flight Agency draws clamor from us scientists proposals Call for such unit by John a. Barbour a science reporter new York dec. 12 w there appeared to Bei growing scientific clamor today for a Federal space flight 1 Agency that can take aim at the Moon and have enough Money to get there. J two reports made Public this latest to i for such an Agency. Both proposals run counter however to the indicated direct Ion the defense department will Ake in a space program. The latest report revealed by a imminent scientist who declined identification suggests creation of the National space flight slab it would have a 10 year budget of some 10 billion dollars and be run by civilians under the exec Ive Branch of government. Eight Days ago the american locket society s space flight committee released a similar re port. It called for an astronaut ical research and development responsible enly to the president and Congress. This Agency it was estimated would need 100 million dollars a and More than 200 million dollars a year later to act in a management capacity hand ing out government research con tracts. The society said the Agency should be run by rocket experts with government representatives sitting in on an advisory basis. The disclosure of the latest re port was followed shortly by an announcement that the defense department was asking the air Force to delay its projected directorate of astronautics in favor of a unified Central Agency. The american rocket society s earlier report was sent to presi Dent Eisenhower oct. 17. It had been drafted two Days before sputnik i was launched. The defense department asked the air Force today to delay set Ting up its announced directorate of astronautics apparently in favor o defense department Plains for an Over All Advance research project Agency. The scientific report disclosed today was. Drawn up by 27 top level scientists of the rocket and satellite research an Independent group including such men As or. Wernher von Braun former German missile expert now director of development operation for the army ballistic missile Agency Huntsville Ala. Or. Joseph Kaplan. University of California physicist sen ing As chairman of the . Committee for the inter National geophysical year or. William h. Pickering director of California Institute of technology s Jel propulsion Laboratory. All of these men Are members As Well of the rocket society s space flight division and von Braun is a member of the rocket society committee which prepared the earlier report. So Are other members of the group malting the latest report. Both groups apparently would men like to dissociate space travel and space flight development from the military. This is something neither the air Force nor the defense i department apparently plans t do. But both reports Are equally Strong in saying that the essential grim toll across nation necessity to yet the United states into an Active program to conquer space.
