Plane Goes Faster Than Sound Washinpton Air Sec- retary Symington said today the Air force research plane XS-1 several times has flown "much faster than the speed of sound." Symington told a news con- ference that so far as he knows no other plane has achieved super-sonic speed, that Is, faster than sound travels. The first and only pilot to fly the XS-1 beyond the so- called sonic wall Is Captain Charles E. Ycager, 25, a fighter pilot who destroyed 13 German planes while serving with the Air Force. Yeager, a native of Myra, W. Is a test pilot assigned to the air materiel command at Wright Field, Ohio. The speed of sound Is 763 miles an hour under standard condi- tions. Standard conditions are with a temperature of 59 degrees Fahrenheit at sea, level. Sound's speed of travel de- creases as temperature drops. At 67 degrees below zero Its speed Is 602 miles an hour. Thus speed of sound Increases as the temperature- rises. The XS-1 has n. wing span of Captain Charles E. Yeager 28 feet, a length of 31 feet and is 11 feet high.

Arbogast Washington The political gloves came oft today in the wake of President Truman's "worst Con- gress" blast and a Republican law- maker's "poorest President" retort. The long distance verbal slugfest showed every sign of turning the coming campaign into the roughest and toughest in years. The name calling started at Spo- kane where Mr. Truman, openly bidding for votes on his western tour, lashed out anew at the G.O.P.- controlled Congress. He told an audience that the people deserve more of the present "ongress if they fall to vote in 'ovember. G.O.P. Congress members struck back swiftly and pointedly. "There are a lot of com- mented House Republican Leader Halleck of Indiana, "who think Mr. Truman is the poorest President we have had since George Washington was elected." House Speaker Martin of Massa- chusetts added: "There are people who have said -.hat about the Pres- ident." Representative Hope chairman of the House agriculture committee, suggested that "the frigid reception which the President is receiving in the West seems to have driven him to loose and ir- responsible talk." Congressional Democrats were silent. As a minority not in con- trol of Congress, they excluded themselves Irom the criticism. As a matter o.' fact, Mr. Tru- man toned down his words some- what a couple of hours after hii first blast, 'Visiting the huge Grand Coulee dam later in the ciuy, the President said that 011 second thought may- be the Stavens" Cin- gress of Civil war reconstruction days was worse than this one.
