Moon Base Plans Get Problem By ROBERT MUSEL LONDON (UPI) - One of the things science has to de: rmlne before it really achieves the conquest of space is how long can a man keep his mind off girls. ( Admittedly this is one of the .'onger range problems for the days, when space ships take off for the moon and beyond but it is already cropping up in the discussions of the planners working ahead of actuality Monday at the first session of the tenth International Astro- nautical Association Congress, Dr. T. C. Helvey, an American biophysicist, conceded that space sex was something he hoped to find out about in research designer^ to perfect a "moon base." Polio Victim Volunteers Helvey is on the staff of Radiation Cor. of Orlando, Fla., which revealed that it was developing a moon base a year ago and promptly got 110 .letters from volunteers (including a heartbreaker from a young polio victim who said he might be able to walk like other boys in the lighter gravity). "We now have complete, detailed blueprints for the moon base," Helvey said, "and we are convinced that the smallest and best crew for the first attempt fc> land on the moon—say any time after 1962—would be two men and one woman, all scien lists. "We are going ahead with our project to test such a base in a simulated moon environment somewhere in the states so that the first travelers will have a reasonable idea of what to expect, and how to survive when they get there. "The two men and one woman we pick will have to agree to remain in the base, cut off from the world, for six months. We will receive telemetered information from inside the base so we will know how our volunteers are getting on." Since Helvey had already described this test base as only 18 feet in diameter and D feet high, the next question was: "Isn't there an emotional hazard, so to speak, in a woman and two men so closely associated for so long a time?" Helvey, a former college professor, smiled: "At the moment scientists feel that for at least the first two months in space or space travel there will be so much to learn and so much to do that sex will not really be a problem. "Believe me, they'll be too dog- tired in the moon base to worry about it. After six months . . . well, that is one of the things we have to learn."

ABBY VAN BUREN LIM'S HIDEAWAY—This is a'view of the living charters of Chinese student Cheng Guan Urn in the attic of an Ann Arbor, Mich., church. He lived a hermit's life for almost four years because he "lost face" over poor grades in the University of Michigan engineering school. Congress In Review United Press International LABOR: A "readjustment" of Republican conferees' stand on labor reform legislation revived hopes that a compromise might be reached in a joint conference committee. Democratic conferees from the Senate huddled to study the proposal, details of which were not disclosed immediately. It appeared likely that if this new move produced progress, Senate Republicans would withdraw their resolutions asking the Senate to accept outright the provisions of a strong House measure! The conferees reached a stalemate last week in efforts to compromise between the House bill and a more moderate one passed by the Senate. TAXATION: A joint conference Theorize Salk Theft For Sale On Black Market DEAR ABBY: Last year I had a serious operation. Last week my doctor told me I needed another operation. When I told my hus-l band, he hit the ceiling. He's been mad ever since. He says there is always something wrong with me. Lord knows I don't like the idea of getting cut up every year. But what can I do? My husband says it is a lot of expense for nothing. Should I just forget the operation? My husband keeps telling me I should have married a doctor. UNDECIDED DEAR UNDECIDED: Does your husband think that if you married a doctor you could be sick for nothing? (And if you married a minister, could you be good for nothing?) If your husband doubts the doctor's diagnosis, he should get the opinion of another doctor. Leave the medical decisions to the qualified medical experts.

They wrote on my walls and wiped their hands on my curtains. They tore up my new magazines and lost my silverware outside. Should they have been corrected, and who should have done it? WEARY DEAR WEARY: Their parents should have corrected them. But in the absence of "correction" from the parents, the hostess should have stepped in, and asked the children to step out BACK TO EARTH—Chinese student Cheng Guan Lim, committee approved a measure! 28 ' P e f rs timely as he is MONTREAL (UPI) - Medical authorities and police officials theorized today four masked bandits stole 75,000 Salk polio vaccine shots for bootlegging on a black market. A high incidence of polio in the city and other parts of Quebec lent credence to the theory that a black market was operating, police said. Authorities have reported 536 cases, including 29 fatal, since the outbreak of the epidemic seven weeks ago. However, the outbreak is considered decreasing. Police said they had received reports the vaccine may be bootlegged for as much as $25 a vial, which would raise the value of the stolen vaccine to $250,000. that would limit the amount of income taxes states could collect from out-of-state firms. The bill would allow such taxation only if the firm maintained a sales office, branch or warehouse in the state. It also would exempt sales made through a contractor, even if the contractor maintained an office in the state. matter of FACT taken from an Ann Arbor, Mich., jail cell for questioning on why he hid in the attic of a church for three years and ten months. He claimed poor grades prompted him to withdraw from the world.

But you can whip our cream" The two principal motions of the earth in space are its rotation, or twirling motion like a spinning top, and its revolution, or movement in a circular path around the sun. These two motions determine when and how directly the sun's light or energy strikes the earth's surface. The earth's rotation is the cause of night and day. The earth's revolution around the sun causes the seasons—fall, winter, spring and summer—each year.

Bookland ADVISE AND CONSENT, by Allen Drury, (Doubleday) — A journalist who came to Washington in 1943 to cover national politics and the Senate for the United Press is Allen Drury. Within a few years there came the vague outlines of a book in which to express his philosophy about Congress, about America, and about the American people in relation to their times and to each other. Actions of the book spans slightly more than two weeks, during which the Presi- Then dent of the United States nomi- she should have stepped on the nates for Secretary of State and parents of the ill-behaved chil- Predict 450 Die On Highways Over Labor Day CHICAGO (UPI) - America's last fling at summer vacation fun may be the last fling, period for 450 motorists, the National Safety Council said today. The council predicted that 450 persons may be killed in one ofj the biggest traffic jams in thej nation's history during the Labor Day week-end. Virtually every one of the 71 million automobiles in the United States will be on the road at some time between 6 p.m. Friday and midnight Monday, the council said. Together, they'll roll up a predicted seven billion miles of travel as vacationers seek a respite from work and relief from the heat at the seashore, in the mountains or in other recreational pursuits. DEAR ABBY: What do you think of a 52-year-old man who carries a picture of his dancing teacher around in his wallet? He never carries mine. I had some made especially for the purpose and he printed a number underneath it and that's the last I saw of it. He makes a big joke out of everything. Don't you think he is making a fool out of me? Should I take the picture out of his wallet and tear it up? Or should I pretend I don't care? HURT WIFE DEAR HURT: He is making a fool out of himself, not you. Don't tear up the picture (he can get more) and don't pretend you "don't care." Get him in a good mood and then call a spade a spade. (Dig me?) You can catch more flies with sugar than you can with vinegar. ( * * * DEAR ABBY: Certain friends come to visit and bring their dren. Youngsters cannot be blamed for not knowing what they haven't been taught. * * * CONFIDENTIAL TO PONYTAIL: If you are wise you will not try to "make him jealous." That technique went out with the horse and buggy. * * * What's your problem? For a personal reply, write to ABBY in care of this paper. Enclose a stamped, self-addressed envelope. Given Ticket While Admiring City Parks One out-of-towner, at least, isn't peeved about getting a ticket for overtime parking in Sandusky. He paid the one dollar tab and in a letter to the parking violations office explained that. his parking meter ran out of time while he was admiring the city's parks. He commented: "It was a dollar well spent." the Senate renders judgment on, a highly controversial public figure, Robert A. Leffingwell. The book, which is the current selection of the Book-of-the-Month Club carries ramifications that become more and more involved The discourse, eventually raises questions as to the integrity and motives not only of the Presi dent but of the Majority Leader of the Senate, the sorely-tried Robert Munson of Michigan, of Seab Cooley, senior Senator from South Carolina and other powerful figures of the Senate (names carefully disguised to make any identity coincidental) THE STREET OF THE LAUGHING CAMEL; by Ben Lu cien Burman (McGraw-Hill): When Yance Cullum from Black Springs, Tex., found himself in Algeria at the end of the war he decided to remain among the Arabs. Watching the Arab women wash clothes by pounding them with rocks gave him his big inspiration. He would start a laundry. This is Yance's story of SANDUSKY iiaisnm y Roger M.
