Gemini 8 flight surgeon Dr. Fred Kelley said after the 4%hour exam: "Both the command p i l o t (Armstrong) and the pilot are considered physically ready for flying from a medical standpoint--very much ready." Scott is one of the healthiest and strongest of the astronauts --which is a major reason he was selected for the space walk endurance test.

"Miss Gittings served the university with complete dedication and competence for 35 The Weather And You . the world of humans ·id the animal world have been ising tunnels to avoid the weather and unpleasant outside en- fironment ever since they have fiten .on earth iT: their present form. S o m e a ji i m a 1 s, I think, h a v e more fun in (hen- tunnels wan we do. .-·i There were tunnels in ancient Rome that permitted people to pass from building to building without going out into bad feather. In modern tunes, tunnels and subway installations connect buildings and en- tire cities so that, people don't have to battle the weather when going from one place to another. Out in the countryside some of the little animals move about and feed themselves under heavy snow by burrowing out tunnels in the snow over relatively large areas of ground. Then they scamper in warmth from one plant to another to gnaw, without sticking t h e i r noses out in the cold and storms that b l o w overhead. When the snow melts, their tunnel city goes with it, but the weather is warm again. --Medicos Familins UMf TWftfNfVtaim Until fwtdtw Mn film years," said UA President Richard A. Harvill. "Her influence on women students and upon university development was well known and widely recognized." Born in Wilber, Neb., Miss Gittings received a bachelor of arts degree from the University of Nebraska in 1906. She began her teaching career at Lead, S.D., High School in 1906 and was an instructor at the University of Nebraska torn 1906-09. She then was act- ng director until 1916 when she jecame director of the: women's jhysical education program at he University of Montana. During World War I, Miss jittings was physiotherapist with the Army Medical Corps and she later went to Turkey Near East Relief Organization. She took a master's degree in 1925 from the University of Arizona where she developed a modern program in physical education for women. In 1954, a year before her retirement, Miss Gittings was honored by the American Associ- as a relief worker with the U.S. ation for Health, Physical Education and Recreation for "outstanding contribution to the pro- ession over the years." -AF» Wlrtohot* .
