Fieldhouse for the regional and j semi-state. j [ We've hit the jackpot by picking Madison, Indianapolis Attucks,!

STRAIN SHOWING ON ASTRONAUT By ALVIN B. WEBB JR. . United Press International CAPE CANAVERAL (UPI) — Stormy conditions in an emergency, rccovey area caused still another postponement today of John Glenn's flight to put the United States in the record book for manned earth orbit.

This meant that the 40-year-old asto- naut could take off no ealier than 7:30 a.m. EST Friday, and probably no later than the end of this week under the current day- to-day schedule. Everything Still Go Announcement of the decision came at 1:05 a.m. EST: Glenn, awakened seconds afterward, had breakfast with Project Mercury officials - and went back to bed. His comment was: "•Everything is. stil! go but the weather. When we get the weather we will go." This was-the second time in as many days that Glenn and aU his equipment had been in top condition - for the flight, only to find the weather acting up. Re'schedul-' ing of the launch still was on a day-to-day basis, with the far- flung recovery fleet having three to four remaining days in which to cruise the recovery areas without replenishing their supplies. ~~) Long Stormy Area The bad weather this time was in the area where Glenn would land if his flight was cut - short in the pre-orbit period because of bad direction or speed. Conditions were better—some cloudiness and moderate seas—in the Atlantic areas where he would land : after one, two or three orits. . - Weathermen reported . that the stormy, area was 800 to 900 miles long and about 300 miles wide.
