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

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
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
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.”

Little ‘Beeps’
From Satellite
Cause Wonder
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
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.

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
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
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
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.
