4 f fie Arizona Republic •KtMiuLi CITY Wed., May 8, More About Telstar II Instant Success (Continued from Page 1) toriesi. AT&T paid an estimated $3 million for each launching. O«e plan for Telstar II is to use it to beam television pic- hires of prelaunch and launch activity Tuesday when astronaut Leroy Gordon Cooper Jr. is scheduled to rocket into space on a 34-hour mission. If the satellite is in the proper position above the North Atlantic* live coverage of Hie liftoff would be relayed instantly to millions of European homes. Otherwise, Telstar II would relay a,video tape of the proceedings at the first available opportunity, as was done last October on astronaut Walter M. Schirra's flight. A three-stage Douglas Delta rocket, logging its 17th straight satellite launching success, boosted Telstar II into an almost perfect orbit ranging from about 604 to 6.713 miles above the earth. The National Aeronautics and Space Administration, which launched the 175-pound ball of instruments for AT&T, announced all spacecraft systems were operating satisfactorily. The satellite is another experimental step toward developing a space communications system for relaying television, radio, telephone, news and pictures rapidly to all corners of the globe. AT&T officials believe, if the government gives the word, that a system of 20 Telstar-Iike satellites could be operational within two years. Telslar T shot into orbit last July 10 and became an overnight sensation, serving as a space transfer point for the first trans-Atlantic television and proving in hundreds of tests that communication via satellite is feasible. After four months of operation Telstar I started malfunctioning and lost its voice. Instruments in the sphere analyzed the trouble as radiation damage to transistors in a command decoder. Scientists developed transistors described as 1,000 times more radiation-resistant for Tel- star II. GOP Vows Fight ior Debt Limit WASHINGTON (AP) -Republicans yesterday announced that in tn« nafne of "responsible fiscal policy" they will fight to hold the mtlonal debt ceiling at its present evel of $305 billion. they took this stand in the ace of Treasury estimates that he public debt will pierce the egal ceiling in three weeks unless Congress acts to raise it. A bill to raise the limit temporarily to $307 billion through June 10 and $309 billion through Aug. 31 has been set for House action tomorrow. Democratic leaders, visibly worried by indications of near-solid Republican opposition and possible defections of some Democrats, linted the bill may be put aside while efforts are made to strengthen administration forces. The battle lines were drawn in he report on the legislation pub- ished yesterday by the House Ways and Means Committee. IN ORBIT—This is the Telstar If which went into orbit yesterday. It weighs 175 pounds and is 34 l / 2 inches in diameter. Two rows of microwave antennas around center receive signals from earth and relay them back.

UF Agencies Raise Sights On Budgets Nine voluntary health agencies have requested a total of $367,252 from United Fund to complete their 1964 operating budgets. Among them, they provide services to: —Blind children and adults. —Training and care for retarded children and adults. —Treatment for emotionally disturbed children. —Professional visiting nurse services. —Care for unwed pregnant girls and women. —Information and referral for the alcoholic and his family. The 1964 request is $102,727 greater than for 1963. Most of the agencies providing direct service charge fees of persons able to pay. Including fees, their total 1963 budget i* $801,772, and the 1964 projection is $934,114. Lawrence Mehren, United Fund president, said the budget conferences will be completed this week. After a review by the executive budget committee and the United Fund board, the allocation will form the basis for the goal for the fall campaign. U.S. Calls Bids For Laboratory The U.S. General Services Administration has called for bids on a new forest service hydrology laboratory to be erected on the Arizona State University campus at Tempe. The two-story structure has been designed by Stephens, Walsh, Emmons and Shanks ol Phoenix. Plans are available at the GSA, Building 41, Denver Federal Center, Denver 25, Colo.

Instead of arresting them, as was the pattern Monday, police grabbed the signs and dispersed he children. Meanwhile, more than 1,000 Ne- roes gathered in a park across the street. The crowd suddenly bolted toward the downtown area, taking police by surprise. Traffic jammed and the heart of Birmingham turned into a eemlng, confused mass of specta- ors and demonstrators. The Negroes would form up quickly, march and sing; officers would turn them in another direction. After about half an hour of this, he demonstration appeared to iave broken up and Negroes began drifting back to the church. Another huge crowd formed In the park and police sealed off an eight-block area to prevent a recurrence of the downtown surge. The crowd in the park grew Impatient and the atmosphere became charged with tension. Police hustled up four fire trucks, including two equipped with high- pressure water equipment. MEANWHILE, hundreds more Negroes suddenly reappeared in the downtown area and resumec their previous antics. One group was herded into an alley where they stomped their feet and clapped their hands, chanting: "I wanna go to jail." Back at the park, the crowd taunted police: "Bring on the water ... bring on the dogs," they yelled. Police obliged. ROCKS FJJSW through the air as firemen hosed down the dem onstrators. Six policemen were hurt. Extent of their injuries was not determined immediately although one man received a broken shoulder, officers said. Two Negroes were struck by a water hose which slipped from a fireman's hand. They were not hurt seriously. Dogs were called into action at one point to put down a minor side uprising. AT THE "height of the activities, Gov. Wallace announced in Montgomery that he was sending in the state police at the request of Police Commissioner Eugene Connor As the situation worsened, Negro leaders borrowed police megaphones and urged the crowd to disperse. "Go home. You are not helping our cause," they said. Ten carloads of highway patrolmen rolled up to the park. Bir- mingham police had moved in their riot wagon, which is equipped with tear gas, shotguns and submachine guns. THE CROWD dispersed slowly. The Rev. Andrew Young, a desegregation leader, said the charges on the downtown area were not planned. At the morning news conference (ing had said that there would >e no end to the demonstrations until the Negroes had gained their goals: 1. Better job opportunities. 2. DESEGREGATION of all downtown public facilities. 3. Formation of a biracial com mittee with authority to solve racial problems. 4. Dropping charges against arrested demonstrators. In a speech to the Alabama Legislature, Wallace bluntly warned Negro demonstrators that he would prosecute them for murder if the massive desegregation drive resulted in violence and death.

Kennedy's "wise leadership" was praised by William H. Draper Jr., San Francisco investment banker who directed a special study of U. S. foreign aid programs for President Eisenhower in 1959. Draper's committee set off a national controversy by recommending that the United States help underdeveloped countries which seek aid in dealing with rapid population growth. Roman Catholic bishops sharply protested the Draper report, and President Eisenhower publicly rejected the recommendation. "Fortunately, the present administration understands the population problem," Draper told a dinner meeting sponsored by the Planned Parenthood Fed- eration of America. Draper iS now vice cftaifmaft of the fed* eration'* "ttdfld population emergency campaign," He noted that Kennedy at a news conference two weeks ago "publicly supported increased fesearcft 1ft fertility ... and agreed that this information shouM be made available to the peop%s of the whole world, sd that everyone can make his own Judgment." "This is what we have been advocating," said Draper. "This is a big milestone passed." Draper said the President's public stand should help lower- echelon federal officials to overcome their "skittishness" about the whole subject of birth control. Noting that tiie rhythm method is. approved by the Catholic Church, Draper said that "no one Would object" to a big new program to perfect it "and it could be a boon to the world." Draper also proposed that any funds which Congress cuts from the foreign aid budget this year be applied to an international educational program aimed at helping underdevelopfti countries "understand the problems that accompany rapid papula- tion growth" and to research aimed at finding "simple, effective, acceptable techniques" to control it.
