The diplomatic informants made clear Uasser’s refusal to let the test convoy pass through the canal, which he nationalized July 26, could be followed by prompt ref erence of the dispute to the U. N. Security Council. He has already denounced the plan for a users’ association as a “declaration of war.” In the Security Council, despite Russia’s right of veto, the West might hope to build up moral sup port for a charge that Nasser had breached the 1888 Suez Convention pledging freedom of passage to all nations at all times. Such suDDort, the diplomats felfc- would be the basis for what might develop into a long-drawn economic bout. Intense diplomatic maneuvering went on' behind the scenes. The U. N. Security Council in New York received from Egypt a communication asking it to keep a vigilant eye on the Suez situa tion and demanding an end to what Egyptians called pressure from Britain and France. The Egyptians said these measures were a threat to peace. Kyle Field (Continued from Page 1) of Student Activities, reported that 5,781 activity cards had been sold to students. Of this number, 3,672 cards had been sold to cadets and 2,109 to civilians. At the present time the student section of Kyle Field has a seating capacity of 8,948. This leaves a margin of al most 4,000 seats for Aggies dates. What’s Doing . . . at Pratt & Whitney Aircraft mm ' tUvifri s.* . Wmm. wsm ■ - ‘ f imsM v- ip?* Test Lab “Upstairs” Even in aviation’s earliest years, it was axiomatic that “proof must come in the air”. Out of this, the flying test bed was born ... and slowly grew to its present-day stature as an indispen sable engineering tool, implemented by an extensive variety of engineering skills. The problems of observing and recording an engine’s per formance in the air are legion. Most recently, a Boeing B-50 and a North American B-45 were readied as test beds for Pratt & Whitney Aircraft’s J-57 and J-75 turbojets. The experimental power plant, contained in a retractable pod in the bomb bay, can be flown to locations where atmospheric conditions permit most efficient testing. The prototype Is then extended into the air stream for actual flight work with the regular engines idled, and the job of observing and recording in-flight performance begins. From the first shakedown flight to the test engine’s even tual acceptance, invaluable information is gathered. Perhaps the most vital contribution made by P & W A’s flying test-bed program is the great reduction in time between initial devel opment and quantity production of engines. Important, too, 1 is the quality and diversity of engineering talent involved in such a program, for it spells out remarkable opportunity for today’s engineering student v '•Jp'&f) / &J0N' ..V iv - -A: 1 > •: v f . After exhaustive testing in the highly advanced facilities of Willgoqs Laboratory, the mighty P & W A J-75 is run in ground test prior to test bed flight. The four-engined B-45 bomber (above) allowed test flight at high speeds .and altitudes early in the J-75’s development.

Smith Is New Fireman Training Chief Henry D. Smith has been appointed to serve as chief of the firemen training depart ment of the Engineering Ex tension Service, for the Sys tem, effective Sept. 1. Smith re places H. R. Brayton, who current ly is conducting research studies for the Office of Civil Defense and Disaster Relief. For the past six years Smith has been employed with the fire men training department as an in structor. Prior to that he was chief of the Harlingen fire depart ment. Smith has served as acting chief of the department since Oct. 1, 1955. Smith reportedly, intends to con tinue to develop all the present municipal firemen training services of the department, in addition to expanding the program to include training for industrial firefighters. In addition to maintaining an “on-the-job” training program for municipal firemen throughout the state, the five-man instructor staff directs the following services: An annual two-week firemen training school held on the A&M campus, attracting about 1200 firemen from this state and the nation each year; a rescue training school de signed to train instructors from various cities in the organization of rescue teams to aid victims of natural disasters or enemy attack (nine of these schools have been held since their beginning in 1955, and about eight are scheduled to be held on the campus this year); the latest techniques of fire con trol and fire prevention are taught at area fire instructors conferences held annually at Abilene, Austin, Lubbock and Weslaco. The five-man instructor staff in cludes James A. Dobson, L. O. Bynum, A. L. Cartwright, A. J. Fogaley and James A. Bland. Clyde Beatty Circus Sets Tents In Bryan Bolstered by the addition of several members of the now-de funct Ringling Brothers, Barnum and Baily Circus, Clyde Beatty will bring his three-ring circus to the Bryan Fair Grounds for two per formances today. Billed as the “Largest Traveling Tent Show in the United States”, the Beatty organization will pre sent more than 150 performers for the two shows, one at 3 p. m. and one at 8 p. m. School children at A&M Con solidated Schools will be dismissed at 2:15 p. m. in order that they may attend the show, which is sponsored by the Brazos Valley Shrine Club. Featured attraction of the pi’o- duction, will be the famous animal trainer Clyde Beatty. He appears in a cage with 40 lions and tigers dur ing th coui’se of his act. Beatty has starred in the circus for many years, and has acted in more than 30 motion pictures, including “Ring of Fear” and “Africa Screams”. Other performers include the Loyal-Repenski family of riders with the comedian Justina, the Sabre Jet Troupe of aerialists and the Flying Thrillers. Clowns in the organization are headed by Bozo Ward, Chick Yale and Joe Miaco. Additional aerialists are the El Ray Sisters, the Segura family of equilibrists and Jean Attilana. A spectacle billed as “gloriously enchanting and stupendous” and “a gorgeous fiesta” will pi-ecede the performances. Included in it will be dancing girls, singers, orchestras and “grand golden-toned organs”. • • • Wear A WESTERN HAT By Davis to the To The ALL AGGIE RODEO — TWO STYLES — 10.95 - $12.00 ZUBIK'S UNIFORMS 105 N.
