Red Chia
Hold VisasX
WASHINGTON (P) - Eighteen
American students who defied a
State Department travel ban to
visit Red China have refused to
hand over thei~r passports to
American Embassy officials.
Authorities who disclosed this
yesterday said embassy officials re-
quested the passports in order to
stamp them valid for return only
to the. United States.
Sixteen of theestudents were
contacted at the Moscow airport,
these informants said, but all re-
fused to hand over their passports,
even after an /explanation was
given them.-
Two others were located in Ran-
goon, Burma, by American Em-
bassy officials. These students also
spurned the request to hand over
the passports.
State Department offlpials said
that even though the students
have refused to hand over their
passports, the documents are auto-
matically valid only for return to
the United States.
Foreign governments will be
notified of this; if necessary, they
said, in order to make certain all
return home promptly.
Once they reach'American terri-
tory, the passports will be picked
up in line with previsious decisions.
'U Physicist
A 1erica's rather tardy space
missile was contrasted unfavor-
ably with Russia's by Prof. Rich-
ard Sands of the Physics depart-
ment last night.
Appearing on WCBN's "The
Third Programme" at 8 p.m.,
Prof. Sands declared that the
Russians have made some notable
advances toward the solution of
the main problem in getting rock-
ets into the air - that is, the
question of propulsion.
He explained that it requires
thousands of times more energy
to send up a 180-pound object,
such as the Soviet 'sputnik', than
it would to raise the United
States' 20-30 pound artificial
. The advantages, he continued,
are also greater. The 'sputnik' can
carry much more optical equip-
ment than the smaller American
model, thereby providing the So-
viets with more of the- informa-
tion they seek.
Radio Signals
Aain .Heard
From 'Moon'
WASHINGTON ()-Radio sig-
nals from the Russian earth satel-
lite began coming in again late
last night after being silenced for
about six hours.
The United States Naval Re-
search Laboratory said the signals
which faded at 4 p.m., EDT, began
coming in strong 'at 10 p.m. and
were still being heard after mid-
The laboratory said the signals
were the same kind of beeps that
had fascinated scientists and ra-
dio listeners since the baby moon

began whizzing around the earth
in outer space last Friday.

The recommendation will be

Young said he thought that, in
order to nake the SBX a success,
it would be necessary to pay all
the personnel of the bookstore. He
said that the work of the SBX
was primarily clerical and not,
suitable for an unpaid extracur-
ricular activity.

only done one-half of one per
