1Canaveral Base Launches
Magnetic Brain Satellite SLTI-SANVRAY
U.S. Air Force Tests
Versatile Scout Rocket

States yesterday described as a
complete success the test flight of
a Scout rocket designed to serve
as a relatively inexpensive yet ver-
satile vehicle for a variety of
space-exploring missions.
The 72-foot tall rocket soared
3,500 miles high and 5,800 miles
out over the Atlantic on a '79-
minute arching flight that ended
in the ocean or in fiery destruc-
tion in the atmosphere between
South America and Africa, It was
launched from the Wallops Island,
Va. station of the National Aero-
nautics and Space Administration.
Although the test was designed
primarily to test the performance
and structural strength of the
rocket itself, the vehicle carried
special Air Force experimental ra-
diation measuring equipment.

The 36,600-pound Scout was de-
scribed by NASA officials as the
world's first known example of a
four-stage, all-solid fuel rocket to
be launched successfully.
Several hours after the launch-
ing, Vincent L. Johnson of NASA
told reporters the significance of
yesterday's shot is that:
1) It opens the way to using
Scout vericles for certain orbital
or space-probe jobs which would
otherwise necessitate the use of
larger more expensive rockets.
2) Because the Scout is a solid
fuel rocket, it can be launched
from a variety of launching sites
-instead of being restricted to
Cape Canaveral and Vandenberg
Air Force Base as are the larger
rockets employing liquid fuel in
some stages.

Demands Rights for Catholics
