JODRELL BANK, England VP)-
The big dish hangs over the
Chesire woodlands like some gi-
gantic spaceship.
Occasionally, almost impercept-
ibly, it shifts position, tilted by
some unseen power. The birds in
the treetops sing on undisturbed.
Beneath, in a complex of single-
story buildings hidden by the trees,
a small group of scientists are
seeking the answer to the oldest
of all questions: How did every-
thing start, and how will every-
thing end?
This is Jodrell Bank-a few
miles south of Manchester-
brainchild of Sir Bernard Lovell,
a leader among the new astron-
omers-those who listen instead
of look.
Spectacular feats in tracking
Soviet and American spaceshots
have brought world fame to Lovell
and his dish-Jodrell's huge radio
telescope. Yet space-tracking is

the merest fraction of his work,
a minor sideline.
His real task, and he has given
his life to it, is to probe far beyond
the moon and planets, far back
into space and time toward the
very act of creation. He is, quite
literally, in contact with things
that happened long before man
walked the earth.
To understand this, look up one
night at one of the brighter stars.
The light from the brightest star
in the Northern Hemisphere takes
nine years to reach us. So you
are seeing that star not as it is
now but as it was nine years ago.
Lovell's radio telescope and
others working with it are homing
in on radio emissions that seem
to have started in outer space
perhaps six billion years ago. By
some theories that is half way
back to the origin of the universe.
Now, at 52, Lovell believes'that
science is on the verge of a big

leap toward the answer to that
oldest question-how it all began.
Science is divided between two
main theories-that the universe
started with the explosion of a
primeval atom, or that it always
has been much as it is now, with
new galaxies forming from prim-
eval dust as old ones are destroyed.
At this very moment, Lovell
said, it is probably more difficult
than at any time in the past
decade to decide the answer. The
reason is that his and similar
studies have turned up so many
new facts which don't always fit
the theories.
The big dish started work in
1957, with the government and
public restive about its final cost
of $2 million. Then, in October
that year, the Soviets put up their
first Sputnik.

ly, pinpointed the course of the
satellite's silent carrier rocket.
Two years later Lovell told the
world the Soviets had placed their
Luna II rocket accurately on the
moon. The Russians came up with
this information later.
Since 1957, Lovell has acted as
a sort of middleman in the space
race. Both Russians and Ameri-
cans consult him and cooperate
with him, and occasionally rile
him.
With the Russians he has co-
operated in bouncing signals off
the moon and Venus, projects po-
tentially important in internation-
al communications.
American scientists at Cali-
fornia's Mt. Palomar optical tele-
scope-the Big Eye-probe out
space for visual confirmation of
Lovell's radio findings at Jodrell,
the Big Ear.

He was equally critical of the
Soviet attempt to put an un-
manned rocket on Venus. This, he
said, could carry bacteria to the
planet and eliminate the chance
of discovering whether life could
exist independently there.
The Russians said the rocket
would be sterilized-it missed any-
way-but Lovell insists total ster-
ilization is impossible.
He is worried by the amount of
space junk whizzing around the
earth. He believes it may make
radio astronomy impossible by the
end of this century. He wants in-
ternational agreements to keep the
spaceways clear.
Americans sometimes ask why
Lovell so often seems ahead of
their own space experts in tracking

quarters in the Crimea. The Rus-
sians naturally time their shots
to arrive when the target, say the
moon or Mars, is above their hori-
zon and they can keep perfect
radio contact.
Jodrell is near enough the Cri-
mea to home in on the same tar-
gets. But when the Russians can
see the moon, the United States
can't.
The supreme example was this
year's Jodrell triumph in moni-
toring the Russians' first pictures
from the moon. Lovell's assistants
successfully tracked the Lunik's
soft landing and began picking up
signals from it.
They were exactly the same sig-
nals as are used to send wire-
photos to newspapers. Jodrell's

Lovell was criticized by both
the Russians and some Western
scientists for releasing these moon
pictures. But he believes in free-
dom of information.
To the critics he said: "My'
duty is to release the information
obtained by the equipment at our
disposal whenever it is of scien-
tific and public interest. To do
otherwise would be unethical."
Jodrell, he insists, is not a gov-
ernment agency but part of a
great university . searching for
knowledge. Hardly 3 per cent of
its time is given to satellite and
space probe tracking.
Its real work, of which the pub-.
lie seldom hears, ranges from
mapping the furthest known limits

scope capable of probing back to
galaxies from which the light
would take nine billion years to
reach the earth.
If it could be built-and the cost
will run into millions-astron-
omers could begin mapping the
outer stars as they existed nine
billion years ago. This, they say,
could be decisive in choosing be-
tween the two theories of universal
origin.
Whatever the decision, Lovell
believes that somewhere out there
it is highly probable that life of
some kind exists or has existed.
"Man," he says, "must give up
the idea that he is unique, or at
least the idea that the solar sys-
tem is unique."

WASHINGTON (P) - The Ma-

airlines entered its second week-

still far apart.
Assistant Secretary of Labor
James J. Reynolds recessed ne-

the disputants to caucus among
themselves during the evening.
He then asked that the negoti-
ators for the AFL-CIO Interna-

today at 10 a.m. with "some new
approaches to the problem."

WASHINGTON - The United
States yesterday recognized the
military regime in Argentina
which ousted President Arturo Il-
lia on June 28 on charges his gov-
ernment was not moving to solve
the country's problems.
The government of Lt. Gen.
Juan Carlos Ongania apparently
won its fight for U.S. recognition
by pledging a return to democ-
racy in Argentina, although it!
made no mention of an election
date.

WASHINGTON-Two bank reg-
ulatory agencies--the Federal Re-
serve Board and the Federal De-
posit Insurance Corporation -
moved yesterday to cool the hot
interest rate war between com-
mercial banks and savings and
loan institutions.
They reduced from 5/2 to 5 per

such deposits of less than 90 days.

The incident brought a strong
protest from Army headquarters,
at Heidelberg.

day's session, one week after the
start of the strike, as "another
day of futile rather than con-
structive discussions."
Met Separately
He said he had met with the
groups separately and also with
individual subcommittees "to try
and provide the basis for a useful
joint session."
"That has not been possible, so
I sent them both to caucus among
themselves," he said.
Reynolds said the talks are still
snagged on national issues which
must be resolved before the dis-
cussions can move to the 37 or so
local issues.
The national issues must be
solved first because they apply
equally to all the airlines, he said.
He added that, "We are no nearer
a settlement today than we were,
really, a week ago."
Reynolds said he expects to keep
the negotiators at work over the
weekend, if necessary.
New Problem
Joseph W. Ramsey, Machinists
vice-president, told reporters that
a possible new difficulty had aris-
en, outside the formal issues.
Asked whether this was some-
thing on the order of the union's
complaint against Northwest Air-
lines' action restricting privileges
of employes at Tokyo, Ramsey
said this was possible, but the
union was checking out the facts.
Reynolds said of this possible
new difficulty: "I think it will be
ironed out."
William J. Curtin, chief nego-
tiator for the five airlines-East-
ern, National, Northwest, Trans
World and United - commented
during a noon recess.
"We still have an impasse-we
have made no progress."
