Copper fibers dumped into
orbit in A. F. experiment
of tiny copper fibers were begin
ning to disperse in a polar orbit
around the earth Monday as part
of a controversial Air Force com
munications experiment.
The Air Force announced Sun
day that a canister containing the
400 million needles called dipole
were dumped from a satellite
launched Thursday from Point Ar
guello, Calif.
Radar sightings show the fibers,
each about one-third the diameter
of a human hair, are beginning
to spread. They are expected to
fan out into a narrow ring about
the earth taking several months
to complete the circle 40.000 miles
in circumference and about 2,000
miles high.
The belt will be used to bounce
radio signals back to earth over
great distances. The Air Force
said the dipole belt is practically
invulnerable to physical damage
and is especially useful in long
distance microwave communica
tions. Some scientists have opposed
the experiment saying it would
clutter space with trash and im-
Sex bills go
to Governor
SALEM (UPD-The first two of
six sex offender bills were sent
to the governor's desk Monday.
The measures cleared the leg
islature when the House concurred
in Senate amendments to bills
providing enhanced penalties for
sex offenders and stiffening laws
against "peeping toms."
A third bill, involving jurisdic
tion over sex offense cases where
the parties include children under
i6, went to a conference commit
tee to iron out House-Senate dif
Two more bills on juvenile
jurisdiction and civil commitment
of sexually dangerous persons
have cleared the House and are
in Senate committees.
The sixth, providing for central
reporting of all sex offenses, is
being redrafted in the House Judi
ciary Committee.
The House passed a $32.7 mil
lion budget for the state's mental
health division including Oregon
State hospital, Dammasch, Fair-
view Home, Mid-Columbia, East
ern Oregon State Hospital, and
Mental health clinics.
Rep. Stafford Hansell, R - Her-

Astronomers also fear the fibers
might reflect back to earth a con
fusing jumble of radio signals that
ordinarly might pass into space.
Dubbed the west Ford Project,
the experiment is being conducted
for the Air Force by the Lincoln
Laboratory of the Massachusetts
Institute of Technology.
Information on the experiment
is being distributed internationally
to help world optical and radio
astronomers in making independ
ent observations. The Air Force
said it hoped some observations
could be made of the needles by a
worldwide camera network oper
ated by the Smithsonian Astro
physical Observatory.
The Air Force previously tried
a similar experiment using 75
pounds of the needles but was un
successful when they apparently
failed to spread into orbit. Fifty
pounds were used in the new ex
periment. The dipole fibers are expected
to disappear within five years as
radiation pressure from sunlight
forces them down into altitudes of
greater atmospheric density where
they will burn up.

Railroads study merger plan
ment has been reached by the
managements of the Union Pa
cific Railroad and the Chicago
Rock Island & Pacific Railroad
on terms for a merger of the two
roads, it was announced Monday.
The terms of the agreement al
so prov ide that if the merger pro
posal is consummated the South
ern Pacific will acquire Rock Is
land lines south and southwest of
Kansas City "at a price to be
determined on final conclusion of
engineering studies now under
way," the joint announcement by
the three roads said.
The three-way proposal, the an
nouncement said, will be present
ed "shortly" for approval by the
boards of directors, and later by
stockholders, of the Union Pacific
and the Rock Island. If the plan
clears these hurdles, the three
lines will then seek authority
from the Interstate Commerce
Commission to put the arrange
ment into effect.
A merger of the Union Pacific
and the Rock Island would give
the Union Pacific its direct track
age into Chicago from Omaha and
Kansas City. In turn, it would
provide the Rock Island with fi
nancial resources to make needed
equipment and property improve
ments. Officials of the three railroads
declined to speculate as to when
the commission might approve
the merger. They said the Union
Pacific and Rock Island would
call special meetings of their
stockholders "at an early date."
The proposed merger calls for
the Union Pacific to exchange .718
of an authorized but unissued com
mon share of its stock for each
common share of Rock Island
stock. The announcement did not
disclose how much the Southern
Pacific would pay for the Rock Is
land properties.
Union Pacific now has 22,429,235
common shares outstanding and
Rock Island has 2,916.711 shares
outstanding. The announcement
said the three railroads contem
