Brills! i I GY Coorclinator Describes Reefs Satellite The Russian satellite launched last Friday weights 185 lbs. and travels in a circular orbit 560 miles from the earth, Adm. Archibald Day, coordinator of operations for the International Geophysical year, said yesterday. Speaking to students and faculty he said it is eight or nine times heavier than the biggest the Uni ted States has planned to launch, he said. “At first the Russians refused to' come out and say how big it was,” . Day said. “But later on , Korean Vets Given Three Reminders Dr. George T. McMahan, man ager of the Veterans Administra tion Center in Waco, today issued three reminders to veterans at tending school under the Korean G.T. Bill. First, student-veterans are re minded that their first check will not reach them for at least two months. Secondly, all student-veterans must remember to have a certifi cation of class attendance signed by himself and a representative of his school and sent to the VA promptly at the end of each month. The last reminder is that GI r students need not report any out side earnings to the VA as there is no limit to the amount of money a student attending school under 4 the GI Bill can earn. they were as cooperative as Rus sian reticence allowed them to he.” Day was speaking on the topic, “Reflections on Lhe Rocket Satel lite Conference in Washington.” The conference was held last week in connection with the IC Y. Dele gates from 25 foreign countries, including three from the USSR, at tended. The Russians had launched their satellite without previous announ- cement to anyone. Even their del egates to the conference had not expected launching to occur before their return to the Soviet Union. The satellite was launched on the last day of the conference and was announced at a cocktail party held at the Russian Embassy. “When I first heard the announ cement, I was furious that they would play such a trick on us,” Day said. “1 thought they should have had more trust and confidence in the ICY members. “But after I thought about it, I was not so angry. After all that is typical of scientists. They do not like to announce an experiment until it is successful.” More Ba 11 al i o n s Sent Out of Town Demand for The Battalion by out-of-town subscribers has in creased this year over a similar pei'iod in 1956.

Considere Little ‘Beeps’ From Satellite Cause Wonder By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Those, ghostly little beeps which have been coming out of the heavens since Friday offer man more food for thought than anything since he unlocked the secrets of tho atom. It is impossible even to list at one sitting all the facets of the advent of the man made satellite. Soldiers, historians, scientists, diplomats, philosophers and just plain men will be coming up with new angles on the subject for a long, long time. There is a sense of human ac complishment in the break through natural barriers which have in trigued the imagination since the creation. There is a sense of foreboding, lest man again prove incapable of keeping accomplishment sepa rate from destruction. In the world of practical politics, reassessments wiH be called for in many fields. What effect will new capability for aerial inspection of the whole earth have on disarmament and the prospect of war ? Russia expects to hare soon a satellite which can re-enter the earth’s atmosphere without burn ing up. Fi’om that it will be only a step to an atomic weapon which can seek out its own target by radar or other means. Russia has just announced, with out detail, explosion of a “new type” hydrogen bomb. On the heels of her claim to an intercontinental ballistics missile, she is putting on heavy pressure for disarmament on her own terms as the nations prepare for a new discussion of the tonic in the United Nations. Russian c j'Moon 9 A&S Council Dampens Talks Chooses Kidd As President UNITED NATIONS, N.Y., (TP)—The United States said yesterday it is considering what effect the Soviet space satel lite will have on world disarmament “and undoubtedly we will have proposals to make at some future time.” It was apparent that the Soviet Union’s artificial moon was casting its shadow over disarmament talks at the United Nations—the current arena for attempts to reach East West agreement. The United States and other friendly powers are pre paring a resolution for presentation to lhe 82-nation U.N. General Assembly based on Western arms proposals. These include recommendations for setting up an inspection sys- ttem to insure that sending of objects through outer space “will be exclusively for peaceful and scientific pur poses.” A U. S. delegation spokesman, asked to comment on a Moscow suggestion that the new Soviet artificial moon would mean a change in U.S. foreign policy, said “That sounds like a bit of moon shine to me.” He added that he saw no signs of a revision in the U.S. stand on disarmament—“We think we have a good position and we are sorry the Russians don’t go along with us.” The spokesman added that the United States certainly would con sider the problem posed by sending objects through the outer space, but had nothing to offer now in the way of specific proposals. The Western disarmament reso lution has been delayed in pre sentation to the General Assem bly, but U.S. sources said this has no connection with the Sov iet satellite. Sir Archibald Day Won th or Today Cold front in north Texas is moving southward and will bring cloudy skies and mild temperatures to this area today. Cloudy and cool is the forecast for tomorrow. At 8 this morning the tempera ture was 68 degrees and the rela tive humidity, 90 per cent. Yesterday’s high temperature reading—83 degrees—was taken at 1:45 p.m. The mercury had dipped to 61 degrees by 7:15 this morning. VA Manager Urges Care In Mailing Dr. George T. McMahan, Veter ans Administration manager for this area, today asked all veterans and their dependents to be careful regarding correspondence to the VA. Dr. McMahan said about one out of every ten letters received by the VA is classified as a mystery let ter—that is, identification is not sufficient to identify the sender. He urged veterans and their families always to list their “C” or claims number when writing VA about benefits, and their insurance number when writing about GI in- suranoe. Bell Club Meets The Bell County Hometown Club will hold a special meeting tonight at 7:30 in Room 3-C of the Mem orial Student Center to elect offi cers. Mach ineGuns Ordered By Southern City UNION, S.C.— UP) —The Union County legislative delegation said last night it has ordered 10 sub machine guns for enforcing county and state laws, including those re quiring school segregation. The delegation said the decision to order the guns was made at a unit meeting and Union County Sheriff J. Harold Lamb apparently was not notified. Lamb said earlier today he was under the impression automatic shotguns — called riot guns by some law officers — had been ordered to modernize his ar senal. The delegation said an order for shotguns was cancelled and sub machine guns ordered for the sher iff and his nine deputies. Also ordered were 1,000 rounds of am munition. The delegation head, State Sen. John D. Long, said yesterday in announcing the order for the guns that they would be used to “repel any idvasion by federal troops or anyone else violating our laws.” The delegation holds the purse strings on money to operate the sheriff’s office and buy supplies for it. *4 9 Freshmen Sing Tonite In Coliseum The Four Freshmen, one of America’s best known vocal groups, will be on the stage of G.
