[«>>—Just 10 steps and T6 hours separated 21- year-old Hurbie Franklin Pairris Jr. from the electric chair. Then word] was flashed to H. C. McLeod, warden of the Oklahoma State Penitentiary, that the postmldnight execution was off. Gov. Raymond Gary, after a series of hurried telephone conversations, had granted Fairris a 60-day stay of execution so the State Pardon and Parole Board could study new evidence disclosed yesterday. The Ith-hour reprieve was granted after 24-year-old Raymond Carrol Price, one of Fairris' companions the night Oklahoma City Detective Benme Cravatt wa« shot to death, told two Catholic chaplains at the penitentiary he — and not Fairris—had shot the detective. gtrrlnj U»e StnUinc* Price in serving a life term for his connection In the shooting during a holdup of an Oklahoma City supermarket July 16, 19M.

CHICAGO if'— The United States plans to fire at least 10 instrument- filled satellites into space in 1937 and 1958. hoping that half of them will circle the globe. This was disclosed Wednesday night by Dr. Joseph Kaplan, chairman of the Erroup entrusted with the American satellite program. He outlined some new details about the satellites in a speech to the American Rocket, society. Kaplan heads the U. S.

At the State Capitol in Oklahoma j City it was disclosed that despite Price's surprising confession, he probably could not be tried again because it would be double jeopardy. The Pardon and Parole Board will meet Nov. 28-29 to consider the new evidence. Police Bitter Oklahoma City police were bitter when they learned of Price's confession to the two priests and the warden. Hoy Bergman, chief of police, charged the confession Irom Price was untrue and "contrived solely to save Pairris from the electric chair." Prom Texas, Pairris' parents—one In Jail and the other In prison—expressed joy at the last-minute reprieve for their son. In a Paris. Tex., jail on a burglary charge, Hurble Franklin Fairris Sr. declared: "Tell me there's not a good Lord."

"As permanent as the House of Parliament," says one supporter. "A flop," reports a detractor. Somewhere between these extremes lies the true definition of a revolutionary xperimcnt in the lives of an island population wholly unaccustomed, until two months ago, to soap suds and soup sales harangues from the box with the big glass eye. Before commercial television sent out its first program Sept. 22, Britain's ever-growing TV audience had only one channel — that of the government-sponsored British Broadcasting Corp. The Big Switch Tnen. already approved by Prime Minister Eden's Conservative government, commercial TV came in and with it the big switch which is more complicated than it sounds. The majority oi sets in operation were built to receive the single BBC channel. The electric shops were so busy fixing up sets with gadgets that would bring in the new pro grams that "Have you become con verted yet?" became a common place questoin among the citizenry. Commercial television hired pro ducers. technicians and stars awa. from the BBC. imported films c surefire American prorgams. deve oped a number of new ideas an threw down a vigorous challenge t the older service. Such American shows as I Lov Lucy and Dragnet became favor ites on the new network. To vary macaroni and cheese cas-1 serole, add a generous amount of chopped rhlves to the cheese. uce.
