Claimed For Plane
MOFFETT FIELD, Calif. IIP!—A
report that the Navy's ultra-secret,
highly-refrigerated Douglas Sky-
rocket has flown at 1,300 miles an
hour, twice the speed of sound,
aroused comment among engineers
here for a meeting.
Walter Bonney, Washington, said
that the announcement of the 1.300
mile-per-hour flight came at Ed-
wards Air Force Base during an
air show last Saturday and was
made by the Air Force.
But he said the Skyrocket is a
Navy ship and the Air Force had
no connection with it. Only the
Navy in Washington, or Douglas
Aircraft, the makers, can release
Officials here disclaimed any
knowledge of the flight and Doug-
las said that 1,300 miles per hour
is the absolute top figure in the de-
sign of the rocket.

NO SUBWAY THIS—This picture was taken in San Antonio,
Tex., and it looks as if the city is getting a new subway. On the
contrary, instead of being a subterranean tube, the "subway" is
the high-flying upper deck of the Air Force's XC-99. That's the
cargo-carricr version of the B-36 bomber. The huge ship, 182 feet
long, with a 230-foot wingspan, routinely carries a payload of
more than 100,000 pounds.
Will Be Closed
WASHINGTON HP) — President
Truman has signed legislation to let
federal Inspectors close dangerous
coal mines, thus giving UMW Presi-
dent John L. Lewis victory in a
fight he has waged for years.
The law is an outgrowth of the
West Frankfort, 111., coal mine ex-
plosion last December which kill-
ed 119 men.
Under the new legislation, in-
spectors of the Federal Bureau of
Mines may close any mine if they
find "immediate danger" of fire,
explosion, flood or accident. Pre-
viously, federal officials could act
only in an advisory capacity.
