Space bird is orbited by Saturn CAPE KENNEDY, Fla. (AP) The Saturn 1 rocket concluded its flight program with a tenth straight success today and hurled into orbit Pegasus 3, a giant luminescent Space bird whose "feathers" may one day; be plucked by Space-walking astronauts. ;A year or so from now, if, the venture appears feasible a Gemini astronaut wearing a rocket pack may leave his spacecraft and rip off detachable metal plates carried by Pegasus 3 to bring them back to Earth for study. The satellite joined two earlier Pegasus payloads already in Space recording the impact of meteorites to learn how much of a threat they pose to lengthy manned Space flight. If an astronaut could return one or more of the pa-peVthin aluminum sheets to Earth, experts . would be able to learn more than radio signals tell. Gulping fuel at the rate of 5,900 pounds a second, the mighty Saturn 1 thundered away from its launching pad right on schedule and spewed a tail of flame more than 300 feet long as it darted across the dark sky. . wmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm&g A-6 Honolulu Star-Bulletin Friday, July 30, 1965 if How they escaped over Berlin Wall Greek premier The first stage power plant, a cluster of eight engines, generated a thrust of 1.5 million pounds and the , second stage fired with a 90,000 pound burst to drill the satellite into orbit about 330 miles high in the same orbital plane used by Gemini spacecraft. The Saturn 1 will be succeeded next year by the more powerful Saturn 1-B. Once in orbit, the 23,100-pound satellite extended two wing-like projections to a span of 96 feet and began coursing through Space like a i great bird, presenting a broad target for the streaking Space particles. The National Aeronautics and Space Administration reported that both the rocket and the spacecraft performed flawlessly. This Saturn 1 flight program started October 27, 1961. - A11 10 flights were successful and the rockets provided America's missilemen wlthaluable data on how to handle large and complex boosters. BERLIN CAP) A hammer, a cord, and a bicycle wheel axle were ' among the simple tools of one of the most daring escapes over the Berlin Wall. Heinz Holzapf el, 33, an economist from Leipzig, his wife, Jutta, 32, and their 9-year-old son Guenter, made their escape to West Berlin Wednesday night and early yesterday sliding down in a homemade cable harness from the roof of a heavily guarded East -German government building. The five-story "House of Ministries," where East German Premier Willie Stoph has offices, is about 25 feet from the wall dividing East and West Berlin. - "I planned to escape for a year and a half," Hol-zapfel said. "I was 80 per cent certain that the plan would succeed, because everything had been well prepared and besides I had helpers in West Berlin. "Often I had occasion to visit the ministries building on business . . . but in the building itself I had no help." Hoffa to appeal ruling CINCINNATI, Ohio (AP) Teamsters Union President James R. Hoffa was just one step away today from fulfilling his vow to take his attempted jury - tampering ; conviction to the U.S. Supreme Court. The 6th U. S. Circuit Court of Appeals yesterday unanimously upheld the conviction specifically rejecting the 52-year-old labor leader's contentions that he was indicted by an improperly impaneled grand jury and convicted on "tainted" and in sufficient evidence. Hoffa and three other men were convicted . March 4, 1964, in the .U.S. District Court at Chattanooga, Tennessee. Hoffa was sentenced to eight years in prison and fined $10,000. The three others received four-year prison terms. The appeals court also sustained the convictions of the other defendants. The West Berlin Government's press office said Holzapf el gave this account: He took his family to the building Wednesday at 5 p.m. They hid in an attic room until about 10 p.m. "We went out of the room onto the roof. It was pouring rain. We wanted to be across by 11 p.m., but it took much more time." , Holzapf el had a nylon-type cord tied to a hammer. The hammer handle was painted with phosporous so those waiting in West Berlin could see it when he threw It. The hammer head was padded to mute , any noise. " When the hammer came over, the watchers in West Berlin fastened a heavy cable to it. Holzapf el and his wife pulled it to the roof. The other end was attached to an abandoned truck trailer in a field. Holzapfel had made a pulley out of a bicycle wheel axle, with a shoulder and waist harness slung underneath. , The child was placed into the harness first, grabbing an attachment to the axle, he rolled down over the wall and the barbed wire atop it. . "Then my wife went next. She was hurt as she landed, but thank God, not seriously. She was only bruised." ' . West Berlin patrols that came on the scene took the mother and son to a hospital. Holzapfel himself came over at 1:30 a.m. v At dawn the Communists for the first time noticed the cable and surrounded the building. Holzapfel said he was a member of the East German Communist Party and wras assigned by the party to explain its policies to his fellow workers. He decided to escape, he said, because he was tired of handing out propaganda he knew was not true. - The family wants to settle in southern Germany;. Three of Holzapfel's brothers preceded him. to the. West, but before the wall was built, he said.

"He was the only person who could possibly benefit from the jury-tampering activities . . , "We-think that the jury could reasonably have concluded from the evidence that the large scale endeavors at jury tampering were not brought about by spontaneous action of the other participants who derived no benefit therefrom and were risking criminal prosecution; and that the endeavurs resulted from the instigation, careful planning and agreement in which Hoffa was an active participant." The1 next step in Hoffa's legal battle would be to seek a rehearing before the appeals court. Hoffa and Larry Campbell of Detroit and Thomas E. Parks and Ewing King of Nashville were convicted of trying to tamper with the jury that tried Hoffa in 1963 in Nashville, Tennessee, on charges of conspiracy to violate the Taft-Hartley Law in the so-called test-fleet case. .-.v.Tr.-.-,v.y..v.v.v . mwmq4wokv: mem "jrii r r jmiL iri'"JBiL.' n"n'" w -!Sr viviyi : By Federal judge Louisiana police officials told: guard demonstrators BOGALUSA, La.

J.

"We are an open society and we cannot deal with the L problem of security on the basis of closing our country," Rusk replied.' He said it is important that national secrets should be, protected, but said this should be done without closing the country to foreigners, v ' " " There would be no particular damage involved in having "a few extra people adding to the tens of millions' wandering around and observing whatever they can," he told the commit-tee. . . ..(.. Rusk did not specifically contradict Hoover but repeated his views that the treaty should not be judged on this issue. The agreement would permit but not require each country to establish consular offices in the other and extend the same diplomatic immunity to consular personnel that is now given embassy diplomats.

U.S. Army Sergeant and a former sergeant today were " sentenced to 25 years in prison each for spy conspiracy charges.

Some 143 deputies of the ruling Center Union Party promised . ousted Premier George Papandreou they would boycott the debate .on whether to approve King Constantine's new government. They voted at a caucus yesterday to bring down the Novas government. ; Under established parliamentary procedure, a vote by the 300-member body will not come before August 9. Rumors spread throughout Athens that; Novas, speaker of the house until he was named premier, might resign prior to today's opening debate. However, he met with his cabinet until midnight, last night and later announced he would run the full course. ; 1 '-. Novas won the support of only, 28 Center Union Party members in the caucus vote yesterday. Political observ- ers said while Novas undoubtedly will get the votes of other parties, he will still . lack a majority in the parliament unless there was a drastic change before the vote. - Papandreou and Novas both belong to the Center Union Party. Although the parliamentary vote is days off, Papandreou ordered his backers to stay nearby and be ready to get to Parliament in a hurry should Novas seek to force the vote ahead of schedule. The two-week old political crisis erupted when the 25-year-old monarch deposed Papandreou to- climax a cabinet change dispute. Political observers said the final . outcome is still in doubt Because of the bitter struggle for power both Papandreou , and Novas ap peared to have ruled them--selves out as leaders of a unified political force. The big question appeared to be whether Papandreou would be willing to jthrow his weight behind a 'compromise candidate. A former deputy premier under Papandreou y- Stephen Sefan-opoulos- is frequently mentioned. ; f - : Political experts said if -Papandreou refused to back -. anybody else, a'general elec- , tion seems the only solution. , i Today's parliamentary program .called only for the election of a speaker to re-: place Novas.
