White radioed back that -he was passing 126,200 feet the old record still climbing. One minute later he radioed he was back at 125,000 and descending. As the X15 dove earthward, at about 40,000 feet were un-usually thunderous sonic booms about five. Two were really sharp, sounding'like cannon fire. Some may have come from the X15's chase planes. The X15, when an engine three times more powerful is installed later this year, is expected to go 4,000 m.p.h. to altitudes between 50 and 100 miles. White, 36, and test pilot Joe Walker, 39, of the National Aeronautics and Space Admlnlstra-tlon have been trading off on the development flights. This was only White's fourth time at the controls.

U.S. Orbiis Space Balloon With Message (CONTINUED FROM PAGE ONE) mission but that the balloon itself had been ejected at the chosen height and had been inflated to carry out its mission as a backboard for bouncing radio signals. NASA said the orbit had been confirmed both visually and by telemetry at the jet propulsion lab oratory at Pasadena, Calif. At that stage, T. Keith Glennan, administrator of the space agency, officially named the new satellite Echo I. A few minutes before the NASA announcement Robert Gray, . top project official, had told newsmen "there is no reason to doubt that the orbit attempt was completely successful." Standing as tall as a 10-story building, the big ball would be the largest, but not the heaviest satel lite ever sent aloft. It was aimed at a circular orbit 1,000 miles above the earth. Also dubbed a satelloon, it would shine bright as a star and be clear ly visible in areas over which it passed during hours of darkness. Strong optical aids would be needed to see it in the daytime. The 92-foot Thor-Delta blasted off at 4:40 a.m. Eastern Standard Time. The aluminum-coated plas tic balloon was folded accordion- fashion in a 26-inch magnesium container tucked in the rocket's nose. Attempts early Tuesday and Wednesday to orbit the big balloon were postponed because of technical problems with the booster rocket. The first effort to launch an Echo satellite failed last May 13 because of a malfunction of small helium jets designed to help control the flight of the Thor-Delta. The launching appeared smooth as the three-stage rocket rose into the early morning sky, spurting a red-orange tail of fire. Observers saw what appeared to be second stage ignition about three minutes after lift off. As the hot Thor-Delta penetrated the cold air of the upper atmosphere a bright cloud of vapor blossomed around the rocket. The rays of the sun. still below the horizon, illuminated this trail for several minutes after the rock et vanished from sight. If Echo I orbits, widely scattered ground stations will try to bounce radio signals and voice messages off its mirror-like surface as it whirls across the . sky at 16.000 miles an hour. The main experiment will be an effort to exchange signals and mes sages between Bell Telephone s Holmdel, N. J. laboratories and NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory tracking station at Goldstone, Calif. These two stations warmed up for the try last week by sua cessfully communicating via the moon.

He forgot the elementary rules of decency and politeness." Schultz was the third American ordered out of the Soviet Union in as many days. On Wednesday Col. Edwin M. Kirton, the U. S.

HWANG SEOUL, South Korea 'w Election of Yoon Bo-sun as president of South Korea today set the stage for a bitter factional fight for the premiership, the position of real power under South Korea's new constitution. Yoon, 62- year-old elder states man of the Democratic party and one of Korea's oldtime fighters lor independence from Japan, won overwhelming approval from the newly elected National Assembly. Balloting was quiet in contrast to the squabbling and confusion that marked past assemblies. The joint session gave Yoon 208 of the 260 votes cast, 32 more than the two thirds necessary. His nearest opponent, Kim Chang-sook a Confucian scholar, received only 29. . . . , - - The president now has only a shadow of the power once wielded by Syngman Rhee, who was forced out of power by the spring "student revolution." Rhee now is in exile in Hawaii. Yoon's first big job as president will be to nominate a premier for approval by the House of Representatives, which is controlled by the Democrats. If his choice is not approved, he must find someone else. Yoon is expected to name Kim Do-yun, a former finance minister and leader of the old-line faction in the sharply divided Democratic party. A bitter fight is expected between Kim and former vice president Dr. John M. Chang, who has had his eyes on the premiership since Rhee's overthrow.
