If one does, he will be a Russian, Western experts say this is a jjossibility if the Soviet Union succeeds in linking two orbiting space ships in 19fi5. Such a link-up also may involve a plan for a spacesuiied soemonaut to climb briefly outside his vessel — orbiting at close to 17.000 miles an hour— to check on the docking operation. ' A cosmic rendezvous is considered a crucial step for eventual interplanetary flights to the moon and beyond. It is a first step towards building orbiting space platforms from which interplanetary ships would take off. ' Developed Maneuverability It is a problem Soviet scientists are known to be busy with. Already they have developed a "maneuverable" satellite "Polyot-One" which can change orbits and make lateral movements. But to date they have not perfected the link-up which the United States hopes to achieve in the next few years under the Gemini project. The Soviets have reported no dry-runs at link-up with their "Polyot" satellites. They made no significant maneuvers with their most recent, three-man Voskhod ship. Exactly what they are up to next remains, as usual, a closely guarded secret. " The Russians capped their major space activity this year with their Oct. ,12 Voskhod flight. 50 Scientific Probes It followed more than 50 scientific probes, some launched in clusters from a single rock-' et. and an apparently unsuccessful attempt to reconnoitre Venus with an interplanetary rocket in early April. Keliahle sources say the Russians are now deep in analyzing the masses of data telemetered back from the 24-hour, 17-mih- ute flight and studying the personal reports of cosmonaut-sci entist Konstantin Feoktistov, cosmonaut-doctor Dr. Boris Ye- gorov and the cosmonaut commander Vladimir Komarov. In all probability, the nature of the next Soviet space spectacular will depend a good deal on this data and the gaps it turns up in the scientists' space knowledge. ; One thing, however, emerges more and more clearly:-Although \ikita S. Khrushchev once declared the Kremlin would not race America to the moon by 1970, the Russians are walking the road to interplane- jtary travel — slowly, surely, methodically. No Timetable. They arc not tying themselves to any definite timetable, as is the United States.whose three- man Apollo project calls for a lunar excursion by 2970. But .so far they have been making annual advances and the Voskhod flight remains a vastly impressive feat, according to Western experts. America hopes to come near to matching it only in 1967 with its Manned Orbiting Laboratory (MOD planned under the two- man Gemini project. . From the Voskhod flight emerged these special achievements: —The Russians have perfected a •"feather-bed" soft-landing technique-,-: using a' parachute and two independent retro-rocket packages. At a news conference, Komarov said the system was not intended, however, for a soft moon-landing. But it appears to be an advance over American techniques which to date still require the less complicated water landing. Developed Space Engine —The Russians have developed a light-weight space engine for propelling a ship in outer space. The United States has also been working on these lines. Feoktistov said in the post-flight news conference the engine had been tested on the Voskhod flight and was used to change the craffs attitude. —The Voskhod ship was boosted into orbit by a giant booster. Mstislav Keldysh, space expert and president of the Academy of Sciences, said OFF TO THE FAR EAST —Bob Hope and actress Jill St. John sit their "steed" In Los Angeles, a Military Air Transport Service jet, before taking off with a troupe of entertainers for GI bases in the Far East. The 25,000-mile tour includes Korea, the Philippines, Guam, Thailand, South Viet Nam. it was the biggest ever to put a payload jnlo orbit. He disclosed no figures but he implied it was more powerful than America's Saturn-on^!whose 1.2 million pounds of thrust have orbited a payload of 36,700 pounds. Experts guessed the Russian rocket had a thrust of up to l.G million pounds. —The three Soviet cosmonauts found it feasible to navigate by the stars using conventional nautical sextants. Concern with navigation in outer space shows the Russians are keeping an eye on finding their way to the moon and back, Western experts, say. SAVES PUPPY STAMFORD, England (UPI) —Mrs. Helena Beall, 62, saved the life of a 14-wce'k-old puppy, Bonzo, by giving it mouth-to- mouth resuscitation after it eol- lapsed in a neighbor's gas-filled kitchen.

'<• TIPTON — KEMPTON SHARPSVILLE Television In Review By RICK DU BROW ' United Press International HOLLYWOOD (UPI) A while ago I committed a tactical error when a studio secretary c.alled up to invite me to a dinner to honor a network and I instinctively replied; "What for?" It was an un- Ihoughtful reply, I admit, although the young lady confessed she couldn't answer my question specifically because no one had asked it of her before. She should have called up Sunday. It was a good weekend for television. The number of new " programs, sports events and choice reruns—at least one from video's so-called golden age—that distinguished the Saturday and Sunday viewing was considerable. One hestitates to refer favorably, nowadays to the "golden age" since it is currently out, rather than in, to admire it with clear-headed gusto; the fraudulent intellectuals bend almost with relief to the sweet blandishments and pres sures of those currently • in charge of downgrading the "past. What really got my weekend off winging was an unexpected revelation Saturday during ABC- TVs broadcast of the Bluebonnet Bowl football game between' Tulsa and Mississippi. During, the second-half, a Tulsa man almost blocked a Mississippi kick, and . an announcer told us the near-hero for Tulsa was a journalism major. Think of it! A journalist who can block and tackle! Just in time'. Greater need hath no profession for a good blocker and tackier -than the currently -harassed brotherhood of bespectacled, pencil-pushing journalists. Result of this video revelation: I drifted on a cloud through NBC - TV's Saturday night movie, "What Christmas," hardly noticing how dreadfully cornball it was, and got,in a few happy peeks at good old Donald O'Connor as he hosted ABC-TV's "Hollywood Palace." . Sunday afternoon, I caught the latest "NBC Children's The- Farmers Loqn and Trust Company OPEN Wed. Dec. 23 & Wed. Dec. 30 CLOSED Sat. Dec. 26 & Sat.

Sunday night, of course, was the rerun of Jfred Astaire's first television special (in 1958). If you missed it, shame on you.
