BlythevlUe (Ark.) Courier Newi - Friday, August 8,MM- ftgt BACK FROM THE EDGE OF SPACE M2-F2 landing maneuvers begin with free glide after drop from B-52 bomber ct 45,000 feet. After 90-degree left turn, glide continues down to 25,000 feet where power is twitched on for practice rocket flareout. Astronauts of the future may be returning from orbit to landings under their own power at jet airports. A rocket-powered, wingless "lifting body," successfully tested in a drop from a high-flying bomber, may be the forerunner of maneuveroble space re-entry vehicles. The test craft, designated M2-F2 and designed on the S lider principle, produces lift in the atmosphere, un- ke Mercury and Gemini capsules which are powerless and require parachutes to slow descent Re-usable, it also is potentially useful for spacecraft inspection, repair and supply missions; search and rescue operations, and manned interplanetary flights. Another 90-degree left turn, then final landing approach with f lareout at 1,200 feet to cut speed from 350 to 170 ro^.h. at touchdown. M2-F2 bos two sets of jets for attitude control m space and two hydraulic flaps for control in atmosphere. Four hydrogen peroxide rockets deliver 5,000 pounds of thrust if necessary for maneuvering at landing. Body of aluminum skin covered with silicon heat-protective surface also has honeycomb-design heat shield coveted by corklike material to withstand temperature; ap to 4,000 degrees. Cop Should Cite Blonde ^liaail V« an >uren OIcNtofhl Syndicate inc.) lllilllllllllllllllllllHIIIIIIIIillllllBIUIIUllliniHH DEAR ABBY: I am a young unmarried police officer. I direct traffic at a busy intersection every morning in Boston. A very pretty blonde girl passes me every morning at the same time in a tan '62 Chevy. She always smiles and waves, and I smile and wave back. I would like to meet her and get to know her better. How do I go about it! INTERESTED DEAR INTERESTED: Tell her she Is much too pretty to be driving around Boston without police protection. And if that doesn't open the door, you can cite her for resisting an officer. DEAR ABBY: I have a sister who is 24, beautiful and very well built. After she graduated from high school (with bigh honors) she went to modeling school. She has modeled dresses, coats, cosmetics, lingerie, and bathing apparel. She was asked to pose for an artist who specializes in nudes. She did. Then was hired by a sculptor who did several statues of her. Then a photographer hired her for a series of pictures.' My question: Why was the work of the photographer considered pornography, and the artist's and sculptor's considered "art?" She posed in the nude, in practically the same position for all three. HER BROTHER DEAR BROTHER: All photographs of nudes are not regarded as pornography, just as all efforts of artists and sculptors are not considered "art." But an unprincipled jerk with a camera is more likely to try to pass off pornography as art — at considerable profit to himself. Who, in this case decided the photography was Gregorian Chant* Pope Gregory the Great had collections made of the music used in Catholic church services. These are still known as Gregorian chants.

There are some legitimate arguments as to who is qualified to judge between art and garbage. And I dare say that plenty of some has passed for the other. DEAR ABBY: I am a bachelor, now divorced, after having been married for two years. During my marriage a son was born. The boy is now four years old. He and I have always been very close because my ex-wife allowed generous visiting privileges. Now my "ex" has remarried and she has Instructed my son to call her new husband "Daddy ..." (the man's first name). When the boy is with me he calls me "daddy," as he always has. But he seems somewhat confused having two "daddies." I am concerned about what this confusion will do to the boy. Can you advise me as to an angle to convince my ex-wife that this boy is being raised in an environment that is not wholly real? FRUSTRATED DADDY DEAR FRUSTRATED: Your signature is the most honest part of your letter. It is YOU who are frustrated. You don't like the idea of your son calling another man "daddy." But since your "ex" has remarried, another man is playing the role of your son's daddy, and he is entitled to the name. Too bad, but that is one of the realities of divorce where there are children. Troubled? Write to Abby, Box 69700, Los Angeles, Cal. 90069. For a personal reply, enclose a stamped, self • addressed envelope. For Abby's booklet, "How to Have a Lovely Wedding," send $1.00 to Abby, Box 69700, Los Angeles, Cal. 90069.

By ALVIN SCHAY Associated Press Writer Earlier this week, before the break in the hot weather, a .Little Rock man spent three days trying to get the central air conditioner at his home repaired. When help finally arrived, both the repairman and the homeowner were shocked when the side of the unit was removed. They weren't as shocked as what they found, though—three dead mice. The repairman said one of the mice had short-circuited a timing device. He said he had seen ants inside such units, but never mice. A group of Jonesboro residents spent an unusual vacation in Oklahoma. Some >25 members and leaders of the Methodist Youth Foundation at the First Methodist Church spent 10 days at the small community of Talihina, building a church mission on an Indian reservation. There wasn't any concern about the menu, according to a member of the group, T. M. H'earn. "We knew what our dinner was going to be every day. We had peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, and lots of 'red-eye' to wash it down with." Just in case you wondered, red-eye is the name given to one .of the popular drink mixes used by Boy Scouts on camping trips. • • •.

I She related in one of her | communiques a story of an,unusual—but hopefully happy- way of marketing livestock, "Probably one of the strangest sights we have encountered," she wrote, "is that of a Korean farmer riding down the road on his bicycle with a pig on the back. We were told that when they are ready to take their pigs to market, they feed them rice wine until they pass out. They they tie them on the bicycle and off to market they go." A Little Rock housewife asked her three-year-old son if he would like to have a baby sister. • "No." he replied solemnly, "I want a popsicle."
