The Weather bureau said the storm had moved into Bristol Bay and wind velocities had dropped to around 35 miles an hour. Its eastward path is across the northern gulf of Alaska. Hardest hit yesterday was TJnmak island, near the tip of the Alaskan peninsula. It was there that the hurricane reach- ed its peak of 175 M.P.H.

Spangler off Hawaii A submarine- launched buzz bomb zoomed over a long line of 35 Navy ships yesterday and apparent- ly escaped a hit from anti- aircraft guns. The missile was assisted by a rocket in its takeoff from, deck of the submarine Car- bonero. Known in Navy par- lance as a loon, the missile was launched 20 miles behind 35 ships strung out over a 21- mile course. It sped 400 500 miles an hour over its control- led course and plunged into the sea 80 miles from where it was launched. A close look at the loon launching showed the navy's missile development has reach- ed a stage where submarines can carry a number of jet weapons in normal underseas ope.-atlons. Loon wings are de- tachable and the missile and its jet engine when broken down probably would occupy the same space area in a subma- rine as three torpedoes. The missile launching ramps are made of a light steel frame- work easily taken down and stowed. The most impressive thing in yesterday's demonstration was the scant launching ramp re- quired to get the bomb into the air with a rocket. After the loon's jet engine warms up the rocket jumps the loon into the air and at- tains a speed sufficient to de- velop jet compressive power. Not only did the loon appar- ently escape ack ack hits but It1 evidentally was not inter- cepted by fighters from the carriers Valley Forge and Box- er. The missile is the same as the German V-l that gave Lon- don so much trouble late ia the war. British gunners and air- men shot down a high per- centage of them in the latter days of the war. The loon's fuel range is re- ported to be between 100 and 200 miles, which would make it a good weapon in the event of war with a country with a sea approach. However, good weather is needed to get them into the air from a submarine. One fell into the sea 500 yards from the submarine Cusk from which it was launched yester- day. A rough sea and a 25- knot wind made its launching difficult.

Arnold, on a murder charge was labeled "improper" by Circuit Judge Gerald E. Boileau of Wausau today. Larson, who has pleaded innocent to first degree murder in the death of Dr. James McLoone, has peti- tioned Judge Boileau to set aside the divorce he granted Mrs. Larson last June. Arguments on the petition are being heard today. Mrs. Larson, in her testimony .it the preliminary hearing October 31, said her husband had told her that he had killed the physician. But Judge Boileau said the testimony was "improper" under Wisconsin statutes because it related a con- versation between the Larsons before their divorce decree became final. The decree will not become final until June, 1950. Boileau said the statutes are clear on the point. But he added that his ruling "may not be binding on any other court." The point of whether the 35-year- old auto salesman and Mrs. Lar- son legally are divorced has be- ;ome an issue in the state's first degree murder case against Lar- son in the killing of Dr. James McLoone. Defense Attorney Philip Arneson filed papers in circuit court yes- terday maintaining that neither Larson nor Mrs. Larson was a le- gal resident of Wisconsin for two years before the divorce was grant- ed in June. Such residence is a condition for divorce' in this state. Larson moved from La Crosse to Minneapolis shortly after Dr. Mc- Loone was found shot to death No- vember 14, 1947. Mrs. Larson testified at her former husband's preliminary learing October 31 that he had told her he killed the doctor. The de- argued then that her testi- presHential election today.

"I make the further Smith said, "that, as result of such recognition. Secretary of State Acheson will eventually be forced to resign as secretary." Smith is a member of the House foreign affairs committee. He is opposed to recognition of the Chi- nese communist regime.

"Everything points to American recognition of communist China be- fore the end of the Smith said in an interview. "First, there is the pressure on our government by other govern- Britain's who want recognition so they can do business -with the communists.
