The Nodaks took the lead early

fast and vigorous action similar to
the game the preceding night. The
Sioux played a hard checking game
which the Wolverines were unable
to crack.
Ten minutes after the first goal

again. This time the goal was
made by Ed T;iomlinson.,

Air} Force
Investigators Find
'Space Talk' Banned
WASHINGTON ')- House in-
vestigators have uncovered a pre-
Sputnik Air Force order clamping
down on talk about space flight
projects, especially anything that
might be considered an effort to
"fly to the moon."
The directive said news stories
aboq space projects caused "un-
favorable reaction" at the Penta-
gon and. in Congress, which con-
trols the purse string.
Visionary to Crackpot .
Apparently the fear was that
Congress might consider such ideas
visionary if not crackpot.
The order was issued July 29,
a 'little over two months before
Russia launched its first Sputnik
Oct. 3.
A spokesman for the Govern-
ment Information subcommittee
headed by Rep. J. E. Moss (D--
Calif) said today he knew of no
cancellation of the order.
Committee to Retort
The committee, which has chal-
lenged what it calls excessive gov-'
eminent secrecy, is expected to
contend in a forthcoming report
that no-talk orders on new de-
velopments actually retard needed
congressional and public support
for such projects.
