ROCKET WRITER SAYS:
Standardized Spaee Technology Needed
By THOMAS TURNER
The United States needs space
technology based on standardiza-
tion, according to astronautics
reporter William Kent of the'
United States Rocket Society.
"In 1950," Kent relates, "I called
on Albert Einstein, armed with a:
letter from Henry Ford. Einsteinx
predicted the failure of Vanguard,
due to lack of American know-

Now, acting in his capacity as
stronautics reporter for the
ocket Society, Kent is "trying to
et a good press in Michigan and
he Mid-West," to explain the idea
f a coordinated space program
o the American people.
"I am well qualified for the job,"
ent said, citing his education at
psilanti High School and the
talian Institute of Technology.
he rocket society spokesman,
hose full name is William An-
hony Del Prete y Kent, explained
hat he comes from "an aeronauti-
"My cousin is the one who flew
o glory, so to speak," Kent con-
inued. He was Major Carl P. Del.
rete of Italy, who flew from
ome to Brazil in 1928.
"I, myself, was commissioned by
resident Calvin Coolidge and the
balian government to assist in
hie construction of the plane in
rhich he flew the Atlantic."
Founds Reaction Firm
Kent continued that he founded
d "small reaction firm in the
ast," but got into it too early and
eceived no government contracts.
I've had my^ failures too," he
aid. He now runs a lunch room
n Liberty Street and limits his
oncern with engineering matters
o his work with the Society.
ADVICE ON ROCKETS-William Kent, a local member of the
United States Rocket Society, has outlined a program for use of
mass production methods with interchangeable parts for use in
rockets. This would prevent costly failures such as Vanguard, he

The United States Rocket So-

azine, for which Kent writes.
Displaying a proof of a photo-
graph from the magazine, Kent
said "the flying saucer is a reality
today." According to the caption
under the "Air Force Photo," the
saucer is produced for our Air
Force by Avro of Canada.

Kent explained his coordinated'
space program in detail, citing
executives of major aircraft firms
on the need and theory.
"My main point," he said, "is
that for decades the aircraft in-
dustry has recognized the wisdom
and practicality of installing the
same power plant or propulsion
unit in various types of airframes.
"The identical engine design
will often be found in single-
engine, twin-engine and four-
engine aircraft, and the advantage
thus accruing to the industry is
obvious, for each company bene-
fits by the collective experience
of all the others using the same

Providing the opportunity for
informal discussion of mutual
problems is one of the principal
tools of a United Nations "lobyist,"
Prof. Elton Atwater of the Penn-
sylvania State University political
science department said yester-
Presently serving as associate
director of the Quaker Program
at the UN while on leave from his

lion "special" planning and train-
ing fund until sufficient money for
the development fund is available.
Prof. Atwater said the projected
development fund would be capi-
talized for "at least $300 million"
as compared with the UN's present
technical assistance fund of $30
The Quaker group has also of-
fered support for the UN refugee
program and for extension of the
office of High Commissioner for
Refugees, Prof. Atwater noted.
Considering the general value of
the UN, Prof. Atwater said that it
provides the opportunity for in-
formal contact between represen-j
tatives of different countries,
He explained that "in the past,
international contacts were much
more formal in character."
At the UN, Prof. Atwater noted,
diplomats see each other inform-
ally, and can talk without the
necessity for immediate results. He
said this informality "makes it
easier for agreements to be
He commented that a "good deal
of quiet negotiation" is going on
behind the scenes on arrange-
ments for disarmament talks, but
pointed out that both sides are
still trying' to bargain on the basis
of inflexible "package" deals.
Prof. Atwater will speak on "The
Prospects for Disarmament
Through the United Nations" at
9:30 a.m. today in the First Meth-
a group already in existence which
could do the job.
"We could be on the moon in
five years, perhaps four, if the
country were geared up day and
night. Either conventional rocket
or nuclear engines could get us

could dictate the legal aspects of

To Pa.y Police
Using highway construction
funds to pay State Police patrol
costs could wreck Michigan's five-
year building program, John C.
Mackie, State Highway Commis-
sioner, said here yesterday.
Mackie criticized a bill now in!
the state legislature which pro-
poses to divert $6 million of high-
way construction funds to pay
road patrol costs.
Towns would get fewer im-
provements on state trunk lines
connecting them and 'cities would
lose "a considerable amount of
money," he told 85 city managers

teaching position, Prof. Atwater
pointed out that "lobby," with its
high-pressure, vested interest con-
notation is not an accurate de-
scription of the Quakers' program.
Friends work in areas such as
disarmament, refugee care, eco-
nomic and technical assistance,
and human rights, he noted.
Emphasizing the low-pressure
nature of Quaker Program activi-
ties, the Pennsylvania political
scientist observed that the group
has three major functions,
1) Sharing special knowledge
