(AP) --Military planners and man-in- I space officials were encouraged today by results of a successful S.SOli-mile test flighi by a Titan 2 | missile-. The 103-foot rocket covered the course in flawless fashion Wednesday in U flight t h a i had special 1 significance for Project Gemini, ' the United S;alcs' next manned- 1 space-flight program. Astronaut i Virgil 1. Gris-om. who may one : day be a Gemini pilot, was among those who monitored the test. 1 Although Titan 2 was declared operational two months ago as · this nation's most powerful inrrr- i continental range rocket, the mis- 1 silc has enc'ounlei'ed numerous troubles, especially in the second- stage propulsion system. Wednesday's success was the 12th in 21 test flights. Manned Spacecraft Cemer offi- | cials, primarily Flight Operations i Director Chris Kraft, have ex] pressed concern that problems in f both stages of tlie rocket could ; affect Gemini seriously. Kraft told newsmen last week th-at the first-stage engine creates vibrations the length of the rocket. ; which could prevent l.he two Gcm: ini astronauts from reading their instrument panels. He reported | the second stage on some shots ! was developing only SO per cent of desired thrust, nol enough to ' boost the approximately 7.000- 1 pound capsule into proper orbit. ! Officials said the Titan 2 regis- ! tered its lowest vibration level yet j Wednesday and developed full sec- I ond-siapc thrust. Ti hurled a war- I head to a target in the South · Atlantic Ocean.

Wash. (AP)-Two young giris stumbled imo a J ycllowjacket nesL Tuesday. One of tncni, CctnclicG CyJ*roll, 6, remained in a hospital, today with more than 200 stings over her entire body. Doctors said · Candice was in lairly good condition. Her companion. Jo Anne Hodgin, 7. was | released. She had between 50 and | j 100 stings, mostly on the arms | and legs, ually by increased pressurization on ihe fuel tanks. But Kraft said the space agency is not completely sold on this approach to Ihe problem and that he would like to see a permanent rather than a temporary fi.\. The Air Force, which is satisfied the vibration docs not affect Tilan 2 as a military weapon, was re- i luctant to spend more money to I redesign the fii-st-slaKC (nrho- j pump, believed to be t h e soui-cc · ot the oscillation. But recently, un' dcr N'ASA pressure, a contract I was awarded to revise the turbo- i pump. · Grissom, who made a suborbilal I rocket ride two years ago. monl- ; torcd a malfunction detection sys- ; 1em (MDS) vliich was test-flown for the first time on the Tilan 2. The detection system reaches elec'.ronh' lingers to 29 key points throughout Ihe rocket and on a manned mission would display its recordings on the astronauts' in- sirumcm panel. If it detected (rouble, the pilots could trigger their ejection escape seats. The readings were displayed on a duplicate instrument psnel in the mission control center at Cape Canaveral. Preliminary evaluation indicated the system had worked well.
