Will. Major Hooplc WILLIAM EWALD SAYS:
Tilings Were Going Badly
Right Off Monday Night
Well, anyway, neitner Margaret
NEW YORK (U PI) I knew
things were going badly right off
Monday night when the Gestapo
grabbed kindly old Dr. Brunner
only five minutes into CBS-TV's
Kindly old Dr. Brunner was a
spy, on our side, oi course the
kindly ones always are and he
had to be replaced by kindly mid
dle-aged Froehch who was mar
ried to kindly Frau Froelich. Like
all kind spies, the Froelichs
weren't very efficient and the
Gestapo got them, too.
That left the whole spy busi
ness in the hands of kindly Mar
garet Lewis who was played by
kindly Joan Fontaine who was in
love with Hans who was played
by Max Schell. He was a kind
newspaperman or maybe I should
change that to a kind of news
paperman because he didn t seem
to have much work -to do.
LAS VEGAS, Nev. (UPI) The
Atomic Energy Commission says
its first test firing of a nuclear
reactor designed as the forerun
ner of a rocket engine to power
space ships was successfully
But other details of the static
test of the Kiwi-A, designed un
der the multi million dollar "Proj
ect Rover," were not released for
The complete test, lasting about
five minutes, was staged Saturday
with the nuclear reactor mounted
on a railroad flatcar. The reactor
did not move during testing.
Newsmen a mile and a half
away heard a faint, dull sound as
the engine started. The reactor
noise was drowned out when two
B57 planes dipped almost to tree
top level to sample radiation.
Five JATO, jet assisted takeoff,
bottles were fired into the hydro
gen stream coming out of the re
actor. They produced a series of
strange shaped white clouds that
spurted from the reactor nozzle
and climbed to about 1.000 feet.
The clouds created a target for
the planes to test for radiation.
Pilots of the B57s said their in
struments detected none.
The test was conducted at the
AEC test site about 80 miles
northwest of here. There was one
false start which scientists ob
served on six closed circuit tele
Close observation was 'impossi
ble because of the intense heat.
The reactor, using Uranium 233
as fuel, operates at temperatures
of 2.000 to 3.500 degrees. The re
actor was mounted on the flatcar
pointed up so the thrust was
After the test, the AEC said
further experiments would be con
ducted for about a month.
nor Hans were much as spies or
lovers or anything else for that
matter and Desilu Playhouse end
ed on a melancholy note with
Brunner and Froelich and Frau
Froelich in the hooscgow, Mar
garet running off to Vienna to do
some more spying and Hans de
ciding to fight it out at home in
his own kindly, inefficient fash
ion. It all happened in Berlin in
1938 and I kind of got the feel
ing that if these were the people
on our side, we were doomed to
lose the war. I know we lost the

know, if we didn't get that in an
