The paths of the Russian satellites involved in the linkups indicate they flights for a mission. All were on courses ranging between 51.7 .degrees north and 51,7 degrees south of the equator—which for Russia's launching purposes :is an ideal course for starting for the moon. . : . " The Soviets have said their man-to-the-moon plan involves first assembling a large space station in earth orbit, using it-SS: a launch pad for lunar journeys. This would involve five Or six launchings and hookups. If most 'of these could be achieved with are preparatory man-to-the-moon CLUB (Continued from Page One) Rock following Purcell's Opinion and confiscated 26 bottles "o liquor. Hughes said there were nc plans to ask Purcell's opinion on the regulations approved by the ABC. The regulations for the club permit were released at a late afternoon news conference aloni with a list of 18 private clubs which had already submitted applications for the permit. Hughes said the • regulations provide for the dispensing of a mixed drink and not the sail but the fifth of the nine pro visions says the serving o drinks "having an alcoholic con tent in excess of 3.2 per cen by. weight" calls for an "appro priate charge therefor." - * * * Hughes said one of -the "compelling" reasons for the aqtion was the fact that the "board's recent action in enforcing existing laws and regulations against private clubs has caused a number of cases of severe hardship and unemployment." • He denied that Gov. Winthrop Rockefeller was aware of the unmanned launchings, the price board > s action and a ] so de nied tag would be considerably ' cheaper and the risk Of life reduced. Once the-base is assembled, a cosmonaut crew Would rocket up to it, check it out, refuel, and head for the moon. It could also be a stopover on the way home. The multilaunch technique is necessary because the Soviets do not have a rocket with the strength of America's Saturn 5 super rocket. , The United Stales plans to use the brute force of the Saturn 5 —at least- twice as powerful as anything yet flown by the-Russians—to send three men to the moon with a single launch. Present U.S. plans call for the first .astronauts .to hopefully be on the moon late next year; The general feeling In • the West IB that the Soviets can't do it be- fore'1970.; However, there * are indications the Russians may attempt a circiimlunar flight late this year or,early next—sending a manned craft once around the moon's backside and returning it to earth. The linkups, also are steps td- ward a : long-stated Soviet'goal of building a large space station in orbit. Its main goal would be military surveillance. Budget cuts have delayed th« launching' of the' first U.S. manned space station from an original 1968 launching Until'at least 1970. It will be a three-man workshop for scientific pur- fhe Defense -Department, meanwhile, is planning a separate military space called the Manned Orbiting Laboratory (MOL). Problems in defining program objectives and developing the hardware have put off the first two-man launch until 1971 — nearly four year behind the original schedule. The cost also has escalated from the originally estimated $1.5 billion to nearly $2,5 billion. The space agency and Defense Department are consider- that pressure from prominent club members and the Arkansas Private. Club Managers As- socation had forced the approval of the regulations. "I believe it important to keep in mind that although thi: is a departure from past practice, the attorneys appear to be almost.. unanimous in their agreement that the board has this authority," Hughes said. "With this in mind, the board feels.that".it must, in the public interest,'take this action."

Such' -opposition" pretty we! scuttled the original Monda holiday bill before the commit tee last year. When the first ses sion .of Congress;,ended, . onl; Memorial Day remained in bill that would have also movec Washington's Birthday, Inde pendence Day, Veterans Day and Thanksgiving to Monday. It was; then that Rep. Rober McClory, R-I11., chief sponsor o the bill, .discovered Christopher Columbus. For years Americans of. Ital ian descent have cherished the idea; of a national holiday : com memorating .Columbus. And fo years Rep. Peter W. Rodino, D N.J., a senior judiciary Commit tee member, has introducec bills establishing such a holiday Many^tates observe.Oct. 12 as Columbus Day but the bills for a national holiday never go anywhere. They served mainly to stir counter campaigns by Americans of . Scandinavian stock for a,Lelf Ericson Day In honor of the man they are con vinced discovered America. Rather than try to legislate history and reluctant to impose two 'a&it holidays on the nation Chairman Emanuel Celler, D- N.Y., ;kept the Coluinbus Day bills well bottled up. : Then one day McGlory lookee at Redlnb, Rodino -looked ai McClory. And a : new bill was born. . .:-,•••-.•' With -Rondlno delivering the Democrats who have large Italian blocs in their .districts am McClory lining up the Republicans, Celler was outmaneuvered and the bill was approved last month. • It would flit Washington's Birthday on the third Monday In February, Memorial Day on the last Monday in May, Columbus Day on the second Monday in October and Veterans Day on the fourth Monday in October. It would apply only to federal em- ployes unless states enacted similar legislation. But chances are that without strenuous lobbying by its backers, the bill may not get much iurther. And if It Should get to the floor, Lelf Erleson'g friends are sure to be waiting.

Official let Cream HONOLULU (AP - President Johnson's zest for lee cream led two aides on a merry chase during his Honolulu motorcade. As Johnson drove through the Waikiki Beach area Monday, IW spied a dairy bar and dispatched a Secret Service agent and the presidential valet t» fetch cones for him and Gov. John A. Burns. The familiar bubbletop limousine flown here from Washington,' came to. a'stop and the aide set out. But Johnson's bodyguard apparently decided it wasn't a good idea to keep the President stalled in the middle of the street while beach crowds converged on him. His car moved on. Some 20 blocks later, the ice: cream bearers caught up with Johnson—their wares dripping freely at that point.
