There was no indication how long the delay would last,1 but thunderheads were moving to ward the Cape Kennedy area and an extended hold might force postponement of the launch. The Titan 3-C, a triple pronged booster designed to be come the military work horse of the future, originally had been' scheduled for a nationally- televised launch at 10 a.m. EST (11 a.m. EDT). But first there was a hold early today to com plete work delayed by weather Wednesday night, and then came the trouble with the third stage. A spokesman said the trouble was in the pressurization system of the steering mechanism in the rocket's third,-or "upper stage. It was necessary to roll the gantry, which had been removed, back into place alongside the rocket to effect repairs. Missiles Score SAIGON (UPI) Two U.S. Navy supersonic jets shot down two Communist MIGs over North Viet Nam Thursday with .deadly accurate guided mis siles. It was the third dogfight of the, air war against North Viet Nam and produced the first confirmed kills for American aviators. One of the MIG pilots was seen parachuting but the other apparently went down with his plane. The Communist fighter planes exploded in the air and crashed in flames only 40 miles south of Hanoi, the North Vietnamese capital. A U.S. military spokesman said the two F4B Phantom jets intercepted a flight of four MIG-17's at 10:26 a.m. heading toward other Navy planes on a bombing raid against the Yen Phu army barracks 115 miles south of Hanoi. The American airmen fired heat - seeking Sidewinder and radar-directed Sparrow missiles at the interceptors, hitting the second and third planes in the loose trail formation. The first MIG caught fire and disintegrated in the air. The sec ond was hit in a head-on pass and exploded. The Phantom pilots observed one open parachute but no sign of the other Communist aviator. The two other MIGs escaped. The spokesman said the MIGs bore yellow stripe markings outlined in Red. The craft were presumed to be North Vietnamese.

"Your successful mission has raised hopes that the day may be nearer when all 'the world cari enjoy closer cooperation in using space for the peaceful interests of mankind, Johnson said. Referring to White's 20-minute "walk in space" outside the Gemini-4 capsule on June 3, Johnson said the United States felt the time had come "for men of all nations to take together a walk in peact in space." Johnson said the perform ance of White and McDivitt "Clearly indicates that the U.S.A. has closed the gap in manned spact flight" with the soviet Union. But he said this BISHOP J. M. RICHARDSON was not t time for an arms race or a moon race. He called again for interna tional cooperation in space as he first did in 1958 when then President Dwight D.

Talks Will Try To Stop Shooting State In Transition Newsmen See How 'Stars' Can Shoot From Alabama By DICK SANDS Staff Writer (Fourth of a series) Many years ago, a composer wrote a song entitled "Stars Fell on Alabama."

Mann told the Organization of American States (OAS) that the Communist 14th of June party was responsible for the renewed fighting. I Mann read from a pamphlet published by the movement urging Dominicans to take up arms and "con olidate the victory" against "imperialists" and the inter-American force.
