Proves Astronaut Can Fly Through The Atmosphere EDWARDS AIR FORCE BASE, Calif. (AP)—In the most dangerous' X15 flight yet, a pilot set a world's record for going up—to prove this important point about coming down: That an astronaut doesn't have to ride hack to earth as a prisoner in a falling capsule—but can fly safely through the earth's atmosphere in a winged craft and land where he wishes. Air Force Maj. Bob White manned orbital flights in winged Wednesday set a new world's altitude record for winged flight, 40 miles, and then made a belly- "TOTA1, HELLING [ MEDIUM : IS THE DAILY VV • • 4--^- — NKWSI'APEFl flopping reentry into the atmosphere which cracked the 'windshield of the rocket plane. The plane dropped spread-eagle into the atmosphere the way a diver belly-flops into a swimming pool. The stress and friction heat would have torn a conventional plane apart. The method spreads the heat of re-entry over a large area of the plane. Wednesday's successful flight proved techniques which may be used in re-entries on future Dyna - Soar and Apollo rocket craft, scientists said. White said the windshield broke as the plane hit the thickening atmosphere at 60,000 or 70,000 feet. He said the crack, on the outer glass panel of the XlS's windshield, didn't interfere with his control of the plane. The temperature on the XlS's surface reached BOO degrees—300 under the maximum the X15 was designed to withstand. White reached an altitude of 215,000 feet — more than eight miles higher than the previous X15 record, 169,600 feet. His top speed was 3,477 miles an hour, under the XlS's previous record of 3,645. Students Fracas Brings Arrests INDEPENDENCE (AP)-A fracas on the eve of the annual Coffeyville-Independence ju n i o r college football game last week resulted in jail sentences for five Coffeyville students and threatens to end athletic relations between schools of the two cities. Five students from Coffeyville Junior College have been handed 60 day sentences by Judge Rob Scovel following their guilty to charges of assault and battery and disturbing the peace. Sentenced were Stephen Boehm, 19, Tom Borgan, 17; Richard Peaster, 21, George Sortore, 18, and Vic McLeran, 21. Officers said the Coffeyville students crashed a private party in Independence and started a fight with high school students, including a polio victim who wears leg braces, a girl and other boys. One youth was hospitalized but has been released.
