plans to prepare for production of
an Intercontinental Ballistic Mis-
sile were disclosed yesterday by
the company that will build the
An Air Force announcement
said only that it would build a
40-million-dollar plant in Califor-
nia to produce a missile system.
'Manufacture and Testing'
But Joseph T. McNarny, presi-
dent of the Convair Division of
General Dynamics Corp., said the
plant will be used for "research,
development, manufacture a n d
testing of the Atlas Intercontinen-
tal Ballistic Missile."
This was the first flat disclo-
sure that the Air Force is getting
ready to build the Atlas, which
reportedly is designed to travel
5,000 xniles at speeds up to 10,000
miles an hour.
The new plant will be con-
structed jointly by the Air Force
and Convair at Sorrento, Calif.,
north of San Diego.
The Air Force said the site was
chosen "because of its proximity
to the Air Force test site at Syca-
more Canyon," and because it was
remote enough from other San
Diego defense activities to meet
tactical and strategic require-
Construction of the plant will
start this month. The /first units
will be ready next spring and the
plant will be fully completed by
the fall of 1957.
McNarny, a retired general, said
6,600 persons will be employed at
the plant by 1958.
The plant will occupy a 280-acre
site and will have a million square
feet of floor space.
The new plant will be Convair's
second devoted exclusively to
missiles. Convair's Pomona, Calif.,
division produces the Terrier sur-
face-to-air Missile for the Navy
and Marine Corps.

NEW YORK (M) - The govern-

Madison Square Garden office
memorandum of 1949 in which Joe

demanded $100,000 "under-the-
table" to make a defense.
Louis never defended his title

Oup its unsuccessful negotiations
Delegates to the subcommittee
of the UN Disarmament commis-
sion -- representing the United
States, Britain, France, Russia and
Canada - began drafting their re-
port to the UN yesterday.
There were frank admissions
that the days of the parley were
numbered but none would admit
the seven-week meeting had been
a complete failure.
In talks with Eden and Stassen
the Soviet leaders have given the
impression that they seriously
want to cut down the burden of
their great land forces which the
West calculates exceed four million
men, informants said.
They added the Soviet program
of industrial and agricultural de-
velopment 4urgently needs man-
power now in uniform. Addition-
ally they have the feeling that the
Russians have come to realize that
new warfare techniques in the nu-
clear age have rendered the need
for great land armies obsolete.
Also the Russians know the great
propaganda value in an arms cut,
these sources said. If the Russians
do reduce armaments they will be
copying what the Western Powers
did immediately after World War
The UN Disarmament subcom-
mittee instructed its secretariat to
compile a complete record of the
discussion Wednesday at its 48th
session in three years. Among the
documents are American, Russian

Late 'V eep'
WASHINGTON ( P)-The nation's
capital said farewell to "the Veep"
in a moving funeral ceremony yes-
terday that left political partisan-
ship wilted and forgotten.
President Dwight D. Eisenhower,
Vice-President Richard M. Nixon
and other top figures from both
parties joined in the solemn tribute
to Alben W. Barkley-the late sen-'
ator, former vice-president and by
common agreement one of the
most genial men ever to walk the
American political stage.
A few hours after the ceremony
in Foundry Methodist church, the
body of the 79-year-old Democratic
senator was taken by special train
for burial at Paducah, Ky., where
another service will be held today.

In accordance with a city ordi-

a light and a license, Ann Arbor

tickets to bicycle owners who have
not complied with the regulation.
