Defeat of McClellan's amendment settled one of the major issues remaining to be decided by the Senate in its prolonged and heated debate on the measure. The Eisenhower adminis tration has contended an or ganizational picketing amend- ment must be included in any effective labor bill. McCLELLAN shouted that the amendment would strike at some of the worst abuses uncovered by his rackets committee. He said it would end in- timidation, threats and shake- downs aimed at employers and would stop picketing in- tended to force employes to join a union against their will. Sen. John F.

VAULT HISS So Thunderous It Would Blow You Dead LOS ANGELES U5V-A Los Angeles firm 'is devel- oping an put-of-this world it won't be heard on your hi-fi set or anywhere else. This sound can kill you, said'William Thomas, presi- dent of James B. Lansing Sound Inc. He explained the sound !s so loud that: "You can't hear it- because you would be dead before you heard .It's perfectly capable- of destroying human tissue, and a human being subject- ed :to. such high, frequency sound waves actually would be scram- seconds." Thomas described the firrnls high-intensity sound simulator (HISS) as a ma- jor breakthrough in efforts tq.sitriulate tremendous vi: brations encountered on a trip to outer space. Vibra- tions on such, a trip are caused by high speed and shock waves. Lansing Sound recently got .contracts from two missile manufacturers .to. build similar noisemakers to test electronic compon- ents used in missiles.
