(UPl)-The first manned space station to orbit the wfffld may bear the hammer and sickle of the Soviet Union. Space experts attending the annual meeting of America's most prestigious aerospace society said the Russians already have flight tested all the elements of an embryonic space station and may soon attempt to create one. A major puzzle, they said Monday, is why no such station was put together during the flight of Soyuz 6, 7 and 8 this month. The answer may be that trouble developed during the flight, they said. Fritz C. Runge, advanced space station program manager for the McDonnell-Douglas Astronautics said the three space a total of seven the sections for "modules" of a total station. "They had space station equipment up there," he told a news conference at the sixth annual meeting of the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics. Another possibility, Runge said, Is that the Russians were testing the station components individually before trying to link them technique already demonstrated on earlier two spacecraft Soyuz nights.

"Hopefully, with this type of information, we can eliminate the necessity of waiting for widespread manifestation of a particular form of abuse," he said. He did not specify the areas where the peanut butter-mayon. naise fad had cropped up, or how many deaths had been caused. SAN FRANCISCO (AP) A meeting of seven police agencies from an area terrorized by the Zodiac killer has developed a general strategy aimed at identifying and capturing him. 'But, says Police Capt.
