Has been organized to be fully owned by the Ioc holders of the Bank. In doing or. Aiken said the directors Are maintaining the Jank s policy of rewarding Stock holders. It will be remembered hat in recent years in addition to paying regular Cash dividends he Bank has paid attractive Stock dividends to its stockholders. For he added in 1951, a Stock dividend of 200 Conr was paid in 1953, 10 per cent in 1954, 25 per cent in 1957, 10 per cent. Reds said pushing ultimate weapon Washington nov. 9 w soviet science today was reported pointed toward a ave Apon More terrible than the ultimate intercontinental ballistic Man Ned hypersonic bomber that could Glide at fantastic speeds through space and bomb and spy on any place on Earth. The United states was also de scribed As interested in such a weapon but far behind Russia in this building he said is designed to carry out the same officials explained that the Bank has outgrown its present Central quarters at 113 w. Evans St. And the new Plant is part of the Long Range plans for new quarters. Although the Bank s Home office will move to the new location it will not affect services in the present location. Guaranty also has a drive in Branch located at 268 w. Evans St. The new Structure to be built on the site of the former Home of the late . Sen. Cottoned Smith will have ample parking and drive in facilities officials said. It will have two drive in windows on lanes coming off Cheves St. One of these windows will be in. The Bank proper with the second one on an Island. The building itself will be of steel and bar Joist and concert construction. It will be fireproof throughout. The two Story Structure will have Brick exterior on the first floor Vith Limestone on the second. The Wilding lobby will be of Glass and will be located adjacent to the staircase. On the first floor will be space for 11 tellers the discount clerk and officers quarters including private offices for the chairman and president. The instalment loan division will have private missiles work that could Lead to this and other developments. This information came from no government sources who arc nevertheless in a position to know much about missiles Progress. They asked not to be identified. At least some of what they told newsmen is expected to be presented before a congressional investigating committee soon. The informants said 1. The u. S. Government has circulated word that by 1959 the soviets can be assumed to have Long Range missiles Able to attack All u. S. Strategic air bases. All Forward u. S.

It is not known whether the reds have solved icbms problems of accuracy and re entry into the Earth s atmosphere. President Eisenhower noted thursday night the United states has successfully brought the nose Cone of a missile Back to Earth without its being consumed by frictional heat As it reentered the atmosphere. But the informants said much work on re entry remains to be done. The russians wore described As interested after world War ii in getting All they could from Ger Man scientists on v2 rockets an antiaircraft missile system and a Saenger hypersonic bomber pro posed by a scientist of that name. Having gone far on rockets and developed a Good antiaircraft sys tem it was predicted the rods will concentrate next on a hyper sonic bomber.

The coast guard reported seve ral sightings of debris in various parts of the search area East of Hawaii but said it was unlikely the objects were from the four engine Clipper Romance of the skies. However surface vessels were checking each report. Honolulu not. 9 a two four engine planes participating in the search for a missing pan american Airliner with 44 aboard radioed the coast guard tonight they were in trouble and return ing to Hawaii. One reported it was feathering one engine and requested escort. The other reported it had a serious Oil leak in one engine. Rain squalls were reported in the search area. Joining the massive search to Morrow will be the Carrier philippine sea which leaves Long Beach tonight with its far ranging radar equipped Antisubmarine planes and helicopters. The Navy said the Carrier s aircraft would reach the search area late Sun Day. Two destroyers the John h. Craig and the Greleck will head toward the area from san Diego. They were to rendezvous with the Carrier. Throughout the Day More than 29 planes and 14 vessels criss crossed a Checkerboard search area. Aside from the spotting of objects in the water Many of them unrelated nothing turned up to shed any ight on the big plane s abrupt and mysterious disappearance.

There Vas no hint of trouble. Veteran Pilot Gordon h. Brown of los Altos calif., did not make he customary position report at . For awhile today sightings of objects raised some Hopes. There future in space expert has answers by the associated press editor s note the u. S. In the words of presi Dent Eisenhower is behind Russia in development of Satel Lites and in some missiles in special the associated press has obtained this exclusive signed Story with or. Braun director of the development operations division at the army s Redstone Arsenal in Huntsville Ala. Or. Von Braun was asked a series of questions re rating to the military aspects of the sputnik program and the future of space in general. Here Are his answers q. How do you account for the apparent ability to out strip the United states in reaching nto space a. The main reason is that the United states had no ballistic mis Sile program Worth mentioning be Ween 1945 and 1951. These six years during which the russians obviously Laid the groundwork for heir Large rocket program Are irretrievably lost. The United states went into a serious ballistic Here two cylindrical objects which were regarded As possible arts of life this was discounted later they were de cried As probably the jettisoned Uel tanks of a Jet plane.

No sign of life and no Oil Slick. Tie coast guard pressed ahead with its plans for a nigh Long search. Most surface vessels remained in the area. So did four planes carrying flares. Einstein s relativity theory tear trip in space would t age you he says Lousanne Switzerland nov. 9 w prof. Aug piste Piccard famed strato sphere and deep sea explorer believes space travellers of the future will go on trips lasting several thousand years and return to Earth without aging. The 73-year-old Swiss told a lecture audience Here last night that round trips to Distant solar systems will eventually become possible in space ships driven by the Force of Light. He said they would travel near the Speed of Light Miles second. Such machines will enable Nan to reach a solar system say Light years away and return o Picard said. The journey would Lake 2.000 Lars As measured on Earth lie this is no longer science fic Tion but strict reality established by Einstein s theory of relativity and now provable in the Labora or Miles at speeds Al Hlll Nolc travellers would show to 14.000 .

Everything in the up arc snip will Honvo Boon suspended mid preserved in time. Piccard said immense technical problems remain to be solved. He said Hie fuel problem is the main difficulty in future space travel even within our own solar system. I in card estimated with the fuels now used n rocket weighing ions would be needed for a round trip to the Moon. To accumulate sufficient Force with conventional rocket fuels in love our solar to said n rocket measuring three cubic be needed. Such proportions Are obviously absurd in Piccard said and new forms of Energy will be indispensable in the though the direct utilization of nuclear Energy is unlikely in space travel the conversion of i Clear Energy into Light rays seems theoretically possible p i c c n r d sold.

Missile program Only in 1951, with he decisions to weaponized the army s jul Corporal rocket and to develop the Redstone. Thus our present dilemma is not due to the fact that we Are not working bar enough now but that we did no work hard enough during the firs six to ten years after the War. Q. How Long before it will be possible for the United states to Aunch a rocket to the Moon How Ong before manned space trave k ill be feasible How soon Miglin we build a space platform orbiting around the Earth a. Launch an unmanned rocket Ine Way to the Moon two to three manned flight to an orbit and return four to five years. Construction of a manned space station could be tackled after manned Orbital flight has become a routine. Q. Is it probable that the . Public is in for additional shocks insofar As russian scientific pro Gress is concerned if so what form do you believe these shocks will take a. Yes it is most Likely that we Are in for a with the powerful multistage rockets they must have used to launch sputnik ii the soviets have a definite immediate capability to fire a payload possibly Over 100 pounds on a one Way trip to the Moon. With just a trifle More Speed the top stage of their rocket would permanently leave the Earth s gravitational Field and enter an orbit around the Sun. Another possible Surprise they May have in store for us is a manned ascent into an orbit with ensuing return and recovery As previously explained. It is hard to predict which of the. Many possibilities along these lines the rus sians will come up with next. But there can be no doubt that As the first successful conquerors of outer space the soviets can now reap a whole Bunch of easy fruits. Is it now possible for the United states to launch a satellite with the military hardware now available what is this hardware my what could it do a. Yes. But any further com ment in Titis regard would have to come from the department of defense. Q. What Tan be done by the United Stales to achieve Superior up by a firm budget which per mils its steady prosecution Over a period of several years. Even with no holds barred i think it would still be Wel Over five years before we could catch up with the so Viets again because they Are not Likely to idly sit by in the mean time. Q is Money a Factor in the development of missiles and is Sites at this time do you think More Money is needed Why How much Money a. I believe that by and Large our five key ballistic missile pro Grams Jupiter Thor Polaris Atlas and Titan could not b seeded up appreciably by in creases in funds. All these pro Grams were subjected to some cutbacks some few months ago but if the original budget figures Are reinstated it is my belief that much More Money could not be intelligently spent on their develop ment. This statement does not apply o Many badly neglected fringe areas of our ballistic missile and satellite programs. First and fore most there is a crying need for More Money for Basic and applied search in these areas. In Many Fields we Are virtually scraping the Bottom of the Reser voir of knowledge and the efforts o refill that Reservoir with Ade quate research funds have been limited. Secondly while adequate funds Are. Available for the clearly de ined missile weapons systems systems there is never enough to Advance the a typical example is that we Don t have a Eal powerful rocket engine today imply because none of our pres ent crash missile programs needs t. But in order to rus sians in the race for outer space be absolutely need the development of such an engine requires several years. We Don t need excessive amounts of extra cer mainly Don t have to double our resent missile budget. But some additional funds for Basic and applied research and developments or future growth potential would help tremendously i the Long continued on Page my army whizzes put Jupiter a on crash basis Washington nov. 9 id army mis Flemen put their Jupi Ter a project on a virtual crash basis today to be ready for Send ing up an Earth and when the defense department actually orders this done. It became Clear that the instructions Given the army by Secretary of defense Neil Mcelroy last night was something less than a com Mand to Start launching satellite As soon As the Jupiter a rocket vehicles could be Emp laced at Cape canaveral Fla. The text of Mcelroy s memo Randum to Secretary of the army snicker last night was kept secret. But the wording was under stood to be. Similar to that of Public announcement directing the army to proceed with preparations for launching. Both defense department and army sources said this meant that a second specific command would be required before the army would have the same mandate the Navy. The Navy until last night had been the Only military service assigned the satellite launching Job. The White House has said the schedule of the Navy project Calls for Small test spheres to be sent up in Decem Ber and bigger ones with scion timid instruments starting in March. Gen. Hurried meeting John b. Medaris Unander of the army s ballistic missile Agency or. Wernher von Braun chief civilian scientist of the Agency or. William picker ing physicist connected with the ballistic missile Agency and other officials held a hurried meeting last night at the Redstone Arsenal near Huntsville Ala. They had had no inkling of the defense department directive unil it was issued at the Pentagon and distributed to newsmen. Acting within the scope of tin directive to begin preparations for launching the first expected moves were to Start assembling the components of the three stage Jupiter a vehicles for subsequent shipment to Cape canaveral. The army has been ready 955 to go into the satellite pro permitted by the is Ense department. But the Penta gon adhering to an originally rated policy that the satellite project must be kept Simon pure scientifically without use of Mill Ary devices had confined the e f Ort to the Navy s project Van Uard. The Navy plan is to use a conventional satellite sphere carry no instruments within the Ball. The army s plan is different and More direct. It Calls for i the Jupiter Cas a launcher. Lis is a combination of a red one missile As the primary ret stage Power Plant with two smaller. Mild fuel rocket engine or Hie second and third stage. Ity in ields it i a. The satellite and missile How Long do you estimate Lake before we can achieve Peri oily in these Fields we have to Ratcli up with the present russian Lead. In the ballistic mis Sile Field the United Stales about two years ago embarked into an ill out crash program which will difficult to substantially accelerate beyond its present Pace. In Iho satellite Field we need n Well planned Long Range National spi program which makes maximum use of rocket hardware propulsion systems guidance sys tems from mid our nirl rams emerging ballistic missile pro Grams. This program must be backed ministers report favourable reaction Atlanta nov. Fri thir teen of 80 Atlanta protestant ministers who signed a statement on race relations a week ago report they have not received one word of unfavourable reaction from their congregations.
