Loffredo said, however, that investigators had not found any evidence of arson and probably would not be able to make a thorough examination of the remains until numerous deep-rooted fires had been extinguished. "Flames pop up every time we turn over a stack of lumber," Loffredo said. "This is going to take a long time."

The $145 million, 163-orbit mission will answer two ques tions: Has the nation recovered from the Apollo 1 tragedy, which killed three astronauts and grounded all manned space flights for 20 months? Can Apollo spaceships safely fly men to the moon? If the mission goes the full 4Vi million miles, Navy Captain Schirra, Air Force Major Eisele and civilian astronaut Cunning- FACTS, FIGURES CAPE KENNEDY, FLA. (AP) Here are the facts and figures about today's Apollo 7 flight: Astronauts: Navy Capt.

Walter M. Schirra, 45; Air Force Maj. Donn F. Eisele, 38; civilian Walter Cunningham, 36. Flight duration: 10 days, 20 hours, 9 minutes.

Purpose: Check all systems to qualify Apollo ship for later flights to the moon. Orbital path: Varying from 105 to 262 miles high, between 31.59 degrees north and 31.59 degrees south latitude. Rocket: Saturn IB, two-stage, 141 feet tall, first-stage thrust 1.6 million pounds. Spacecraft: Before third orbit separation from second stage 113 feet, 3 inches long, maximum diameter 21.7 feet, 69,034 pounds. After separation 33 feet, 4 inches tall: 12 feet, 10 inches diameter, 32,389 pounds.

Estimated cost: $145 "ready to fall any time." He stressed that spectators ing up to fire safety standards jyer since it was completed, two years ago. The fire marshal said stairways in a three-story wing of the dormitory are not enclosed with fire-resistent doors, as is required by state law. There were additional, less crucial, violations of the fire code as well, he said. Legal Action Johnson said efforts to get the building upgraded to minimum fire standards have been unsuccessful, so he has taken the case to Emmett County Attorney Max Pelzer for possible legal action. Pelzer said if one final attempt to get conditions in the building corrected is unsuccessful, he will begin legal action against the owner.

Dean Parks said junior col-Jege officials are not alarmed about the safety of the dormitory, and described the dispute "With the fire marshal as "a ihinor thing."

Parks said 240 students live in the dormitory complex, which has a two-story men's wing and a three-story women's wing, joined by a dining hall. He said the enclosed stairway is required only in the women's wirig "because regulations for three-story buildings are a lot more stringent than for two stories." 1 than a panel truck, Wally's Ship nonetheless has almost three times as much space as the two-man Gemini did and more than four times the room the one-man Mercury had.

We enjoy a reputation of having been investigated by the nations leading newspapers and hotels and welcomed by both to use their facilities. NOW THE QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS. 1.

Question: Will my coins be worth mora if I hold them longer? 1. Answer: If you are an active collector or coin investor there could be times when you could sell for more, but if you don't watch the market your money is better off in savings accounts free from worries about thefts. 2. Question: Should I sell my coins now? I do not need the money. 2.

Answer: It is always asier to sell to a known buyer than try to find a buyer when you need the money. And if you never forsee needing the cash your coins will bring, it is still wiser to have this cash working than laying idle. 3. Question: I've thought of giving my old coins to my children and grandchildren. What's wrong with this? 3.

Answer: Nothing -if you can divide them equitably. This is extremely hard to do as the value of one may go up while down on another. Selling tho coins while you con trol them and dividing the money Into even savings accounts is always safe. And at today's interest this money should double in 13 years. OUR BUSINESS IS BUYING COINS.

Schroder told officers he found a sweater, which had been hanging on a door knob, burning on the floor of a hallway about 6:40 p.m. He said he threw water on it, then kicked it outside.

A wall and the floor were slightly damaged, police said. Schroder told police recent attempts also had been made to set fires in a garage and an apartment. Speech Tonight Eisele, 38, the guidance and navigation expert, and Cunningham, 36, Apollo 7's systems engineer, both said they hope to fly into space again. One of the main mission highlights is scheduled the second day, when Apollo 7 is to attempt a rendezvous from 83 miles away with the orbiting 62-foot-Iong upper stage of its booster rocket. The odds against it happening are at least a million-to-one, but if there should be a fire on the launch pad today the men at the space center are ready for it.

The spacecraft itseif has been fireproofed from top to bottom, but the changes made at the launch site since the Apollo fire 21 months ago go far beyond the spacecraft.
