Satellite Detects
Blast Of Missile
The new .Midas IV spy satellite
detected a Titan missile as it
roared away from the cape on a
(.100-mile test flight Tuesday
Bight, an official reported today.
The launching was timed when
Midas IV whirled 2,100 miles
overhead to determine if infrared
sensing devices in the satellite
could pick up the exhaust trail
of the Titan and relay the infor
mation to a ground station.
"The Midas spotted the Titan
about 90 seconds after it lifted
off,'" the official said. "Water va
por and other elements in the at
mosphere probably prevented it
from locking on the exhaust trail
sooner. On the basis of prelimi
nary examination, we consider it
a good test."
Similar successful experiments
were conducted with the Midas
111 satellite launched earlier this
At 90 seconds, the Titan was
about 40 miles high, heading for
its ninth straight success. i
Midas IV was launched from :
Point Arguello, Calif., last Satur
day in another experimental fir-1
ing aimed at developing a system
of missile detection satellites able
to provide the united Mates wun
30-minute warning of an enemy
rocket attack.
The Air Force announced the
Titan met all the test objectives in
one of a final series of flights be
fore the weapon becomes opera
tional late this year.

He said he is confused at what
the Kennedy administration is
getting at with its fiscal policy.
"One day the nation is told the
federal budget is balanced, and
the next that it will produce a
56 7-biliion deficit," he said.
"I believe this nation is in a
time of prosperity if we can't

"postcard evidence" that Peacs

County Gets
$1.3 Million
Douglas County is to receive SI,
3S2.168.18 as its share of receipts
from national forests within its
State Treasurer Howard C. Bel
ton reports receipts of the sum of
$10,224,466.96 as the annual 25 per
cent distributive share to Oregon
counties from Forest Service re
ceipts. The total is approximately
$2.4 million less than 1960s rec
ord high of $12.6 million.
Formula Explained
Under provisions of federal law
25 per cent of the total receipts
from forests go to the states for
disbritution to the counties in
which the forests are located. Each
county's share is in proportion to
the acreage of national forest land
within the county. The law pro
vides that 75 per cent shall go to
the road fund and 25 per cent to
the school funds of the counties.
Regional Forester J. Herbert
Stone reports that Lane County,
which is receiving $2,610,866.20
leads Oregon recipients. Douglas
County is next in line. Lane Coun
ty gets receipts from the Willam
ette, Umpqua and Siuslaw forests.
Douglas County's money comes
from the I'mpqua, Willamette,
Siuslaw and Rogue River forests.
National forests contribute to lo
cal welfare in many ways. Stone
points out. In addition to a coun
ty's direct receipts, the national
forests make permanent improve
ments and payroll payments and
expend other money in manage
ment activities.
O A C Contributes
In addition to the year's total
receipts from national forest land,
$3,441,246.17 was collected from
Oregon and California grant lands
administered by the Forest Serv
ice. Receipts are deposited with
the Department of Interior for dis
tribution by the Bureau of Land
Counties are credited with 75 per
cent of income from O & C lands.
Actually, however, they permit 25
per cent, or more, to go back into j
roads and recreational improve-!
ments on the land. They are paid
approximately 50 per cent.
Eighteen western Oregon coun
ties share in the distribution of
O & C receipts. Douglas County,
largest in area in western Oregon,
receives almost 25 per cent of tho
Tshombe To Free
U. N. Prisoners
(AP) Katanga President Moise
Tshombe ha, formally accepted
ratification of the Katanga-U.N.
cease-fire and agreed to hand
over about 190 Irish and Scandi
navian prisoners this afternoon,
the U.N. Command announced.
U.N. envoy Mahmoud Khiar at
the same time will return to Ka
tangan control the Elisabethville
oost office and radio station taken
by U.N. troops during the week of
fighting last month; also hand
over 210 Katangan prisoners cap
tured in the fighting.
The U.N. Command had feared
that the strong-willed Katanga
president might object to condi
tions attached to the accord by
the U.N. secretariat so that it
would in no way recognize Tshom
be's claim to independence from
the central Congolese government.

West Germany would become a
