Editorial . . . Torture Shows Validity Of Pueblo's Mission IT WOULD BE wonderful to think that the release of the 82 sur• viving members of the crew of the USS Pueblo in time for Christmas was a gesture of good will toward men on the part of the North Koreans, a sign that the spirit of the season, which Is not an exclusive Christian possession, had permeated even behind the Bamboo Curtain. Unfortunately, the tales the men have recounted of ll months of brutal treatment, verified by their debilitated physical condition, preclude any such assumption. Perhaps it is enough just to be thankful that all of the men but one, who was killed at the time the ship was seized, are alive and in fair health. Their bodies will quickly recover from the ordeal under the loving care of their grateful families, though the invisible mental scars they bear may be another matter. The United States paid a price for their i-elease by signing an apology for the instrusion of the Pueblo into North Korean waters. It has no more validity than the confessions tortured out of accused witches in the Middle Ages, which is about as far as the Asian Communists have progressed on the scale of civilization. The experience of these men at the hands of the North Koreans is sufficient demonstration of why they had to be where they were when they were captured. South No Haven From Flu IF YOU'VE BEEN "THINKING of going south to escape the * flu, or even that chronic winter cold, forget it. A hot climate is no guarantee against runny noses, sore throats, clogged sinuses and all the other naggin aches and pains of what the medical trade terms respiratory infections. In fact, it could be just the opposite, according to a four-year study of student ailments conducted jointly by the Universiy of Wisconsin and the University of the Philippines and reported in the Wisconsin Research Newsletter. Both schools kept track of the causes of all admissions to university infirmaries. Results showed that in the tropical Philippines, almost 50 out of every 1,000 students were hit by respiratory infections on a yearly average, twice the sniffle incidence among students in wintry Wisconsin. Weather was a factor at both schools—illness peaks occurred during the rainy season in the Philippines and the cold winter months in Wisconsin—but only because it kept students cooped up in crowded classrooms and dormitories, hothouse atmospheres facilitating the spread of cold-causing viruses. In short, the danger lies not in the weather outside but the company you keep inside. Which may be some cold comfort to snowbound millions.—DG SATURDAY, DECEMBER 28, 1968 Today In History By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Today is Saturday, Dec. 28, the 363rd day of 1968. There are three days left in the year. Today's highlight in history: On this date in 1836, Spain recognized the independence of Mexico. On this date jn 1846, Iowa became the 29th state. In 1856, the 28th American president, Woodrow Wilson, was biown in Staunton, Va. In 1869, chewing gumwas patented by William Smple of Mount Vernon, Ohio. In 1917, during World War I, the U.S. government took over the nation's railroads. In 1941, early in the Pacific Wf.r President Franklin D. Roosevelt pledged independence io the Philippines. In 1942, Japanese bombers hit I Calcutta, India. Ten years ago: The United S'f.tes was considering an appeal to all nations to widen the scope and authority of the World Court. Five year agos: An official audit showed that the New York World's Fair had lost more than S2J million. BERRY'S WORLD © 1968 by NEA, Inc." w 0 "Better slow down, dear!

President-elect Nixon's choice for transportation secretary, says more emphasis must be put on mass transportation systems to cope with the nation's urban traffic problem. The Massachusetts governor said Thursday in his first new conference since appointed by Nixon thnt "highways alone won't do the job." The emphasis on public transportation came as a bit of a surprise since Volpe has gained a reputation as a man who be- j lieves in highways.

(AP) — The son of columnist Walter Winchell died of a single gunshot wound in the mouth, the coroner's office says. Walter Winchell Jr., 33, died Wednesday night. A .38-caliber pistol was found lying beside his body. The victim's wife. Eva Anne- lies Winchell, 34, told police that her husband wrote a suicide note on Dec. 20. She said he attempted suicide last Christmas and underwent therapy for about four months following the incident. Winchell was working as a dishwasher at the time of his death and the family was receiving welfare benefits. He listed his occupation as a freelance writer. ••- - and "o nrocrams -a-™*, ««, w.i . ]ie in highways. As federal thorn think of themselves as, dritl ° ut ' dm • mother and other relatives.

One major piece of Apollo hardware still remains to be qualified, the lunar module spacecraft that will taxi future astronauts from a three-man Apollo craft in lunar orbit to the' moon's surface. That four-legged lunar lander is to get its first manned space test about Feb. 20 during America's next three-man mission, Apollo 9. If the lunar module performs perfectly in earth orbit on Apollo 9, astronauts conceivably could land on the moon on the following flight, Apollo 10, jn April or May. Present plans for Apollo 10— to be flown by a three-man crew headed by veteran astronaut Air Force Col. Thomas P. Stafford —call for the pilots to fly a moon orbit mission in which the lunar module separates from a three-man Apollo spaceship and approaches within 10 miles of the surface, but does not land. "Our present plans are to not commit Apollo 10 for a landing," said Air Force Lt. Gen. Samuel C. Phillips, Apollo program director. However, "We might want to exercise a more ambitious option," he noted, as was done when the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) decided to send Apollo 8 around the moon. The first lunar landing mission is now expected by Apollo 11, next May or June. Astronauts have not yet been assigned for that flight. The particular lunar module assigned to Apollo 10 does not have fuel tanks with enough capacity and weighs too much for a lunar landing. So if a decision is made to fly the Apollo 10 crew to the moon's surface, another lunar module would have to be assigned to the mission, Phillips pointed' out. Television will continue to be an important factor in the space flights. i Thursday it gave a glimpse of three explorers returning home as the last of six scheduled TV broadcasts from Apollo 8 was made at an altitude of 112,000 miles. It showed the sunlit side of the earth, including North and South America, covered by numerous clouds. Apollo 8 television is completed but as Borman told earthlings: "Stay tuned in." There will be flights and rendezvous and earth orbits, he said. behavior, this is as old as life.
