O R S HOME EDITION MASON CITY IOWA SATURDAY SEPTEMBER 27 W2 Paper ot Two Ono No 303 PictUrCS the Of mice v mice were separated by a transparent wall Top mouse at left restored Tests Show Man Can Endure Rocket Flight WASHINGTON UP A rocket shippilot weightless as he hurtles through space probably can oper ate normally as Jong as he is strapped to his seat the Air Force concluded Saturday To prove its point the Air Force released movies or two white mice and two monkeys in a rocket which zoomed 38 miles above Hollo man Air Force Base N M One mouse had nothing to cling to The other could get a grip on a small shelf As the rocket arched downward and its acceleration equalled the pull of gravity the mice became weightless The mouse with a firm grip on the shelf was not per turbed He could control his body and did not float free But in the adjoining compart ment the mouse with no toehold trashed about frantically as he floated crazily from side to side of a smoothsided plastic drum FronV this and similar experi ments including some involving pilots the Air Force said this was new evidence that man can with stand the unusual forces of rocket flight and function within the range of normalcy The mice not only came throug the weightless period without i effect but withstood acceleratio which increased their weight b 15 times for Jess than one second and by three to four times for A seconds They were crushed to th Ooor but were unharmed The two monkeys also made th stratosphere trip without harm They were strapped tightly in tin seats and anesthetized so their struggles would not tear loose in strumenls which recorded thei blood pressure pulse and breath ing and radioed the information ti earth But Admits Soviets May Force Him Qyt The United States government stood squarelj behind Ambassador George F Kennan Saturday in the face of an unparalleled b 1 as from Moscow But officials here concededthe Kremlin might force his removal as envoy to the capi tal of Commuriism The sharp criticism was based on a Sept 19 Berlin comment to reporters ia which Kennan said among other things that contacts between Americans and Russian people in Moscow had been re duced to the zero point Secretary of State Acheson told a new conference Friday he con sidered the resulting propaganda attack wholly unjustifiedand im proper The ituation was regarded by veteran state department experts on Russia as being without pre cedent so far as they could recall Considering the fact that the So viet press reflects only views ap provedby theSoviet government theyestimated the violence of the attack as sufficient to indicate a demand for Kennans removal should the criticism be continued Should he heousted it was un clear whether the US would force the withdrawal of Soviet Ambassa dor Georgi NZarubin who pre sented his credentials to President Truman Thursday but that was clearly a possibility The situationis ironical for the reason that when Kennan went to Moscow last May after years of helping shape US policy toward Soviet Communism he wentwith the avowed hope of restoring more normal displomatic relationsand reestablishing some basis of Cour tesy and confidence in dealing be tween the two governments The tendency of authorities here now is to speculate that this did not suit Russian purposes at a time when the Kremlin has a greatcam paign of hate against1 the United States running inside Russia SPARKMAN TO RETURN DES AtOINES WKAlabama Sen John J Sparkman thr Democratic vice presidential nomineewill re turn to IowaOct 10 to deliver a
