Multi-Stage Rocket Lifts 601-Pound
Payload into Orbit in Outer Space
MOSCOW (P)-The Soviet Union yesterday successfully launched
a cosmic rocket carrying "an automatic interplanetry station," Tass
The announcement gave no details but said only:
"Under the program of outer space exploration and prepara'tion
for interplanetary flights, a third cosmic rocket has been successfully
launched in the Soviet Union on Oct. 4, 1959. The rocket carries on
board an automatic interplanetary station,

"The launching was effected by means of a multistage rocket.
The last stage of the rocket after it attained the necessary speed put
the automatic interplanetary station into the required orbit.
"The orbit for the automatic interplanetary station will ensure
the passage of the station near the moon and its flight around the

be definitive yet because no one
here knows what Khrushchev and
the Rled Chinese leaders have been
talking about privately,
But the conviction is growing
that Khrushchev may be trying to
use his influence to try to get the
Chinese Reds to take some stepĀ§
toward improving their own rela-

Whatever his ultimate intentions
may be, Khrushchev obviously
needs the cooperation of Chinese
Communist leader Mao Tze-Tung
and Premier Chou En-Lai. This
would be true whether his real

Committee to meet here tomorrow
David J. McDonald, president of
the USW, also summoned the un-
ion's International Executive Board
to meet in an unusual Sunday ses-
sion this afternoon.
Some observers were optimistic
over the developments. But others
saw no concrete moves leading to a
quick end of the strike which is
playing havoc with America's eco-
The 170-man Wage Policy Com-
mittee can either reject or accept

There are widespread but un-
confirmed reports the industry is
willing to give the USW an eight-
cent an hour annual package in a
two-year contract -- provided'the
union permits management more
control over local working condi-
tions, These conditions vary from
company to company.
The reported offer would give
eight cents for pension and welfareI
benefits for one year with no pay
raise as such. In the second year
eight cents would go for wages.
McDonald and R. Conrad Coop-
er, the industry's chief negotiator,
would not say if any offer is on the
contract table. They met for one
hour and 20 minutes yesterday
morning, maintained a news black-
out and went their separate ways.
The negotiators said they were
"on call" for a second meeting
later in the day.
Although McDonald and Cooper
refused comment one industry
source close to the negotiations
said there was no money package
put on the bargaining table.
While there was a glimmer of
optimism, some persons close to
the scene pointed out that the
USW's Executive Board and the
Wage Policy Committee have met
several times during the strike.
However, at these meetings
nothing has happened to shorten
the steel strike.

Michigan Scores in Final Period
To Destroy Spartans' Shutout
Sports Editor
A pair of supposedly-crippled backs and a "pony line" of Michigan
State combined to make the 1959 edition of Michigan Wolverines look
like a replica of the-58-ers as the Spartans stunned Michigan 34-8,
here yesterday.

all-victorious record in three games against Michigan teams, and Dean

Graham -To Speak at 'U' Next Year

Special to The Daily
WHEATON, Ill. - Rev. Billy
Graham, winding up what he calls
a "highly successful" Crusade for
Christ at Wheaton College has
been invited to speak at the Uni-
versity during the 1960-61 year.
Details of the University trip
have not been worked out, Graham
said yesterday.
Graham spoke at a layman's
banquet last night in Wheaton,
where he graduated in 1943.
Criticizes Schools
He criticized Harvard, Yale and
Columbia for wandering from their
original "commitment to the faith
of our fathers." Those three east-
ern schools, like Wheaton, were
founded on Christian principles.
Wheaton, celebrating its 100th an-
niversary this year, is dedicated to
"Christ and his kingdom."
Faculty membersare committed
to the Christian religion and teach-
ers and students generally agree
not to smoke, drink, gamble or at-

tend movies. Classes and athletic
events are begun with devotions.
"Wheaton has maintained its
academic and spiritual ballast bet-
ter than any college in the United
States," Graham declared. He
blamed progressive educators for
"brainwashing" America and turn-
ing once - religious schools away
from their Christian foundations.
Must Hold to Ideals
It is important for Wheaton to
hold to its ideals "in this age of
despair" he said. "Our only hope
today is in a person and that per-
son is Jesus Christ," the Evangelist
declared. "He is the Lord of history
and He is going to come back in
the Flesh and set up His Kingdom.
I believe this is where history is
moving." Graham said that "Christ
offers a challenge to which ad-
venturesome youth will respond."
"If young people don't have a
philosophy, a challenge, a flag to
march under, they will do all kinds
of things." He warned that "Jesus
is not calling you to a picnic or a
playground, but to a battleground

Predict Win
LONDON (A') -- Prime Minister
Harold Macmillan predicted yes-
terday his Conservatives would
win Britain's boiling hot election
But latest public opinion polls
show the outcome nearly a toss-
up between the Conservatives and
"I have become more and more
confident of the result," Macmil-
lan told a news conference.
With only five days left, the
polls showed 39.5 per cent of the
voters behind the Conservatives
and 38 per cent for Hugh Gait-
skell's Labor Party.
A little more than two weeks
ago -- when Macmillan called the
election on the crest of a popular-
ity wave and in the flush of Presi-
dent Dwight D. Eisenhower's visit
here-his Conservatives appeared
a sure thing to win an unprece-
dented third term and run Brit-
ain for another five years.
At that time the polls, usually
accurate in forecasting elections
in Britain, gave the Conservatives
a 7.5 per cent margin as against
the present 1.5 per cent.

The supreme court held such a
violation resulted from Du Pont's
possession of the shares, compris-
ing 23 per cent of the outstanding
GM stock.

La Buy said in his 101-page
printed order the government plan
was "unnecessarily harsh and pu-
His solution to the problem was
a ban on voting rights for Du Pont
on its GM stock, and other bars to
influence by Du Pont interests up-
on GM management affairs.
La Buy's order retained Chicago
District Court jurisdiction for en-
forcement of the order and re-
served the right to review and
amend the court's terms if future
justification should arise.

president, said in a statement that
Du Pont was gratified that the
