Scientists Work On Satellite Orbit WASHINGTON, — 'A 5 ) Ameri can scientists, working with com plex mechanical brains, reported varying results last night from their efforts to establish the orbit of the Soviet earth satellite. The Navy reported: “The Naval Research Laboratory minitrack system is now pi-oducing very satisfactory data. “They are being fed to the IBM computer machine at the computing center . . . and the quality of the resulting orbit information will enable us to give scientifically ac curate minute-by-minute predic tions for alerting the optical and radio tracking systems.” Moonwatch scientists at Cam bridge, Mass., first reported they, too, were making good progress with their computations, but later said they had run into difficulties. They gave two possible reasons for failm-e of their $2,742,000 mathematical brain, to hit upon the Red moon’s orbit: 1) The reported sightings of the satellite, from which informa tion was fed to the machine, were not correct, or 2) the information from the sightings was not suffi ciently accurate.” What’s Cooking The following clubs will meet tonight. 7:30 Fish and Game Chib in the Agri cultural Engineering Building to hear a special speaker from the Texas Game & Fish Commission.

Maybe it was the maroon and white leather armbands. Starting last night the gtiard de tails began wearing- the new arm- bands through the ingenuity of a Squadron 8 senior and the financial backing of the Corpus Clmsti Mothers’ Club. Last spring Cadet 1st Lt. Rob ert M. Dickey, now Squadron 8 executive officer, began wondering how to improve the looks of the armbands worn by cadets on guard duty and presto, devised the leath er device. Dickey presented his idea to a tactical officer and by the time school was out, the Commandant’s Office had given the idea the go- ahead. Dickey, Cadet Capt. Jim Rankin, commanding officer of Squadron 8, Dickey’s mother, Mrs. F. F. Dickey, and Rankin’s mother, Mrs. C. Logan Rankin, set to work on the armbands in August and with the support and help of the CC Mothers Club had the bands fin ished by the first of September. The new bands ai-e made of ma roon elk with white leather letters and white cross-stitching. Formal presentation of the arm- bands for both cadet areas was made to Col. Joe E. Davis by the two Corpus Christi seniors Mon day. Math Club to Hear Sims Speak. To nit e S. A.

Leaving the boxoffice, Turner dashed outside to the spot where he had been standing and found a 75-pound piece of limestone, Mexican Study Aid Now Available American students will have an opportunity to receive scholarships to study in Mexico from the Insti tute of International Education ac cording to Kenneth Holland, pres ident of the group.
