Palm Beach Post, Tuesday, Nov. 1J, 1968-25 Soviet Places Second In Peter Sellers Loves Hollywood dov and G. C. Chernyi, professor of aerospace engineering at the University of Moscow, stated that major goals of the Soyuz 2-3 flight included the testing of changes which had been made in the Soyuz spacecraft and its parachute system as a result of the death of Vladimir Komarov in April, 1967. No new technical breakthroughs, then, occurred on the latest Soviet manned flight. In fact, it was similar to the latest American flight, Apollo 7, in which astronauts went into space for the first time in two years. Astronauts Wally ""Schirra, Donn Eisele and Walt Cunningham tested changes in the Apollo spacecraft made as a result of the 1967 fire which killed three of their comrades, and qualified the craft for a trip to the Moon. The two flights put both the Americans and the Russians back in the race, but did not give the lead to either of them. The next step for us will be taken during the Christmas holidays when astronauts Frank Borman, Jim Lovell and Bill Anders attempt to go into orbit around the Moon. If this Apollo 8 mission is successful it will put the U.S. far ahead of the Russians. To snatch the lead away, the Soviets may try putting cosmonauts into lunar orbit in early December or at the same time as Apollo 8. If they cannot do this, they might try upstaging us by landing dogs or other animals on the Moon, which they have said they will do oefore sending cosmonauts. Ex-astronaut John Glenn, the first American to orbit Earth, thinks the Soviets might also use a robot spacecraft to get a sample of the Moon and bring it back to Earth. In March, the U.S. plans to make the first manned test in space of the Lunar Module, designed to take two astronauts from an orbiting Apollo spaceship to the lunar surface and back. Next spring, the Lunar Apollo 10 mission, manned by astronauts Tom Stafford. John Young and Eugene Ceman, will conduct a complete rehearsal of the lunar mission in an Earth orbit extending out to 4,500 miles. In the summer or fall, the first Americans may land on the Moon. Crews have not yet been named for . these missions. LEGAL NOTICES No. 5869 NOTICE OF HEARING OF OBJECTIONS TO PROPOSED IMPROVEMENT CONSISTING OF PAVING.

Zond 5 and 6 are thought to be prototypes of multi-man Soyuz spacecraft in which the Soviets have carried out their latest manned flights. In October, cosmonaut Georgi Beregovoi, 47, twice brought Soyuz-3 into close proximity of Soyuz 2, which was unmanned. The Soviets did not disclose how close the vehicles came. They made no claim that the two spacecraft had docked or linked up, although this would be a natural objective of such a maneuver. In fact, an article in the Soviet newspaper Pravda noted earlier that one purpose of the mission was "to perfect docking techniques." Writing on the Soyuz 2-3 mission, the authoritative aerospace magazine Aviation Week and Space Technology concludes: "The Soviet Union's resumption of manned flight activities after an 18-month hiatus failed to achieve its major goal of docking two spacecraft manually." U.S. astronauts docked spacecraft on four Gemini missions in 1966. The Soviets twice linked up unmanned spacecraft by using completely automatic techniques a feat far more difficult than doing it with men in control. Nevertheless, most experts believe the Soviets need to perfect docking of manned spacecraft before they can land cosmonauts on the Moon and return them to Earth.

A real-estate lady told me she has instructions from Peter to find a house for him in Bel Air or Beverly Hills. The success of his Hollywood-made "Alice B. Toklas" could have something to do with it. On the reverse side. I hear that Burt Lancaster and his former partner Jim Hill are planning to get together again with a film company headquartered in London.

She was saying at the Hotel Trinidad in Palm Springs (where most of Los Angeles is baking out colds), that she has already been on the road in "Hello Dolly," and in Hollywood in "Gaily, Gaily" and "Peyton Place." I understand that the TV soap opera, a habit among many nighttime viewers, will be retired at the end of this current season. Life can't be all bad, can it?

He was a great dancer, a sweet man and a courageous soldier. I shall miss him. Patti Page and Peggy Lee have a "Patti and Peggy" special up for grabs at the networks. George Schaefer called to say he is conducting a mad search for a "fresh and beautiful face" to play the lead in his "Letters from a Portuguese Nun." "The girl must be young, beautiful, spiritual-looking but with smoldering passionate qualities." I wish him luck. We may have lost Lee J. Cobb to Shakespeare. Except for some indistinct shouting, I thought his King Lear at the Vivian Beaumont Theatre in New York's Lincoln Center, was among the very best I have seen. I have always considered Lear the idiot-boy of tragic drama. No man in his right senses divides his kingdom between two daughters on the strength of their protestations of love. And what a bad father he was to disinherit his youngest daughter Cordelia because she told the old tyrant that when she married she would give half of her love and obedience to her husband. Mr. Cobb managed to make me sorry for Lear, something Paul Scofield was unable to do when he played the addled king a few seasons ago. Portuguese Have High Birth Rate LISBON (AP) - The annual number of births in Catholic Portugal has been steadily declining in this decade, but the birth rate remains one of the highest in Europe. In 1961, there were 217,916 live births in continental Portugal. In 1965, the figure was 210,290. During last year live births dropped to 202,061. That was roughly the figure 20 years ago, when Portugal had 1.2 million fewer inhabitants than the nearly 10 million it has today. But the birth rate, at 21.4 per thousand, trails in Europe only those of Albania 34 per thousand and Ireland 21.6 per thousand. Specialists attribute the drop in births to continuing heavy emigration abroad and the rising cost of living. School Sets REDLANDS, Calif.

But these flights also demonstrate that the Russians are running second in the lunar race. On Oct. 30, Dr. Leonid I. Se-dov, former chairman of the Soviet Government's Commission for the Promotion of Interplanetary Flight, told newsmen in Houston: "In the nearest future, our space pro-' gram does not include landing a man on the moon." But since Sept. 15, the Soviets have sent two unmanned spacecraft around the Moon and accomplished their first manned rendezvous mission in Earth orbit. Asked to elaborate on his idovsaid his country had "prior space experiments" to complete before they could go to the Moon. These experiments involve re-entry into the Earth's atmosphere and "maneuvering and controlling spacecraft." Zond 6, launched Nov. 10, and its predecessor, Zond 5, launched in September, were primarily concerned with the former need, while the Soviet four-day manned flight in October had the maneuvering and control of spacecraft as a major aim. Zond 6 followed much the same flight path as Zond 5, the first spacecraft to circle the moon and return to Earth. The latter feat was hailed as a big step toward landing men on the Moon, and Britain's top space expert, Sir Bernard Lovell, claimed that it put the Russians ahead of the U.S. in the Moon sweepstakes. But as far as a manned lu nar trip is concerned, Zond's only real accomplishment was to demonstrate that the Soviet spacecraft could survive reentry into the Earth's atmosphere at the tremendous speeds that are part of a return trip and could land safely at a predetermined spot. The U.S. already accomplished this in November, 1967, as part of the unmanned Apollo 4 mission. Swinging around the Moon and coming back to Earth on a so-called free-return flight path is a relatively simple feat compared to, say, making a soft landing on the Moon. Five U.S. Surveyor spacecraft have made such landings us- LEGAL NOTICES No. 3023 NOTICE OF ABANDONMENT OF FOURTH STREET IN HOOVER PARK SUBDIVISION. PLAT BOOK 16, PAGE 20.
