(AP) — The triumphant Gemini 9 astronauts, eager to talk, tackle today the tedious job of recalling (or experts the disappointments and successes of a historic three days in space. Officials want to know every detail, and space twins Thomas P. Stafford and Eugene A. Cernan plan to take 11 days to cover them. All points to the fact Gemini 9 — troubled as it was — added to the log of experience needed for man's journey to the moon. "It was a disappointment in spots," Cernan told friends.

A — The people approved voting machines in a statewide referendum and I think their wishes should be respected. Q — Do you favor school con- aolidation, home rule for cities, constitutional reform? A — School consolidation is to be placed before the people In the form of an initiated act ind I will abide by the decision nude at the polls. I do look favorably on home rule for cities and constitutional reform although I believe we can work rich reform without a drastic change in our present constitutional structure. Q — Would you describe your- aelf as liberal, moderate or conservative? A — I one* classified myself as a Southern moderate in a book which I wrote and, since 1 still try to follow the Biblical admonition to "practice moderation in all things," I suppose that classification would come as close to being accurate as any. However, since such labels mean one thing to one person and another to the next, I feel they are misleading. 'But we did get some real good nformation, a great deal of ex- lerience." The 32-year-Old father of one returned from space the world's champion space walker, and with a direct one-grade promotion by the President to Navy commander. Cernan and Stafford splashed with amazing accuracy back to earth at 10 a.m. Monday, riding their scorched spaceship to within 3>A miles of the recovery aircraft carrier Wasp in the Atlantic. They got a jubilant welcome aboard the carrier, then flew to Cape Kennedy in separate planes shortly before 7 p.m. After four days of debnefings here the pilots will have a happy re union with their families ir Houston, Tex. The public will hear dramatic details of Gemini 9's orbita chases and Cernan's breathtak ing space walk at a news con ference scheduled by the astronauts in Houston June 17. During 72 hours, 21 minutes in space, Stafford and Cernan rolled up a stream of victorie that included: —Cernan's 2 hour and minute cosmic stroll, the long est ever, although 30 minute shorter than originally planned His face plate fogged and froze and he had to ditch a plan to us a super, rocket-propelled bac pack to shoot through the heav ens. —Three rendezvous chase after a target satellite, all o which figured strongly in futur man-in-space programs, incluc ing the one that will someda return men from the moon. —Their landing demonstrate that two astronauts could stee a spacecraft to a, pinpoint land ing. In fact, Gemini 9 came s close that many aboard the cr rier heard the spacecraft's soni boom as it broke the sound bar rier. A major setback, though, wa the fact Gemini 9 did not get chance to link to its chase ta get, shot into space two daj ahead of the two astronauts, shroud failed to eject and e; pose a docking cone, making look, in Stafford's words, lik "an angry alligator."

GAVSHON BRUSSELS (AP) — Foreign ministers of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization open their annual spring meeting today to discuss, measures made necessary by France's withdrawal from the alliance's military command. The ministers also were to discuss a Danish plan to seek a Suropean security settlement with the Soviet Union. This was expected to produce still another fundamental disagreement with France.

Prodded by the United States and Britain, the 14 reportedly recognized the importance ol keeping the political group close to shape for efficiency and security. But Canada and other smaller powers felt its retention in Paris for the time being might facilitate negotiations with De Gaulle on France's future participation in the alliance. 3.

The Danish proposal for new talks with the Soviet Union will come under study when the ministers get down to analyzing .rends in Soviet policy and in East-West relations generally. Danish Foreign Secretary Per Haekkerup feels that NATO as a group should approach the Soviet bloc's Warsaw alliance for talks on a European security system and a political settlement for divided Germany. * * * Secretary of State Dean Rusk, British Foreign Secretary Michael Stewart and West German Foreign Minister Gerhard Schroeder reportedly approve the proposal in principle but feel there must be careful preparation for any negotiations with the Communists. They also insist that only NATO as a whole, and not any one of its members, is qualified to speak for the West.

The 1,200 marines and paratroops pitched their tents six miles south of Hue tonight after moving out of Da Nang earlier in the day. Tri Quang's underground radio said Monday that Ky planned to send his soldiers into the city as he had done last month to seize Da Nang from Buddhist rebels. * v * In the war against the Communists, an attack by a company of North Vietnamese regulars on a U.S. artillery camp in the central highlands backfired badly. U.S. Air Force planes and troops of the U.S. 101st Airborne Division struck back at the 100 or so attackers and killed at least 77, an American spokesman said. Just northwest of Saigon, elements of the U.S. 25th Infantry Division pounced on a Viet Cong supply area, killed perhaps two dozen Communist guards and captured 155 weapons buried In tiie swamp in plastic wrappers. The two actions broke a lull ol about a week in the ground fighting in South Viet Nam. Cloudy weather limited the air war against North Viet Nam to 55 multiplane missions Monday, but American pilots flew 524 combat sorties in the south and U.S. B52s hit a suspected Viet Cong concentration northwest el Saigon. Amid the stir over the troop movement to Hue, a general strike disrupted business in Hue, 400 miles northeast of Saigon, while members of the ;ecting some in the central market place with barbed wire to prevent them from being hit by vehicles. * * * Some residents later pushed a few altars back into the streets. A brief flurry occurred near the Da Nang market when troops used tear gas to • scatter 10 monks and a group of followers attempting to start a demonstration. In Saigon, police quickly throttled a potential demonstration. They arrested some 40 youths who tried to join a funeral procession for a Buddhist nun who burned herself to death last Saturday—one of nine fiery suicides in the last 10 days to protest U.S. support of the military regime. Militant Buddhists vowed to continue their fight against the Ky government despite the junta's efforts to placate Buddhist criticism by adding 10 civilians to its membership. None of the 10 civilians named to join the 10 generals on the junta represented the Buddhist Institute, although some moderate • Bud dhists were Included. The remainder of the slate was made of veteran politicians, two Roman Catholics and members of the Cao Dal and Hoa. Hao religious sects. Seven thousand Buddhist roared their disapproval at an antigovernment rally on the muddy grounds of the Buddhist Institute on the outskirts of Saigon.
