Johnson said the fire was "intensely hot and may have smoldered for some time before igniting." He said the roof of the firm burned and caved in minutes before any units arrived. The first alarm was turned in at 6:24 a.m. Another followed 30 seconds later, the third at 6:26 and the fourth at 6:30 a.m. The fire, fought by 60 men manning 12 units, was controlled within 30 minutes.

(AP) Launching of the Gemini fi astronauts on man's first attempt to catch and join an orbiting satellite was postponed indefinitely today when their Agena spacecraft target was lost in space. Flight Director Christopher C. Kraft Jr. scrubbed the launching of Walter M. Schirra Jr. and Thomas P. Stafford when it was determined that the Agena apparently crashed into 1 he Atlantic shortly after launch at 10 a.m. EST by an Atlas booster. When a tracking station in Australia reported "no joy, no joy" in futile attempts to find the Agena, Kraft called off the mission at 10:54 a.m. At the time, the countdown on the astronauts' Titan 2 rocket was progressing on schedule toward an 11:41 a.m. launching. UNTIL NEXT YEAR The failure meant that Schirra and Stafford probably will have to wait until next year for another try at the rendezvous and docking mission, completion of which is critical to this nation's plans to land men on the moon. However," Dr. Robert Sea-mans, associate administrator of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, said that the failure would not delay the United States' schedule to put a man on the moon by 1970. Robert R. Gilruth, director of the Manned . Spacecraft Center at Houston; said. rescheduling of the next Gemini flight would not be made until it could be determined what went wrong with the Agena.

The United States large-scale entry into the war so far has failed to produce any meaningful peace feeler from North Viet Nam For six months U.S. diplomats have searched for a Red response to President Johnson's offer of unconditional discus-sions.

Twins Are ESP Marvels PHILADELPHIA (APi - An experiment by two Jefferson Medical College eye specialists has resulted in finding two sets of identical twins with what the doctors call "electronic extrasensory perception.' The results of the experiment, conducted by Dr. Thomas D. Duane, professor andchairman of ophthalmology at Jefferson, and Dr. Thomas Behrendt, chief of research in the ophthalmology department, were published in Science, the journal of the American Association for the Advancement of Science. The experiment was to place one twin in each of two rooms, 20 feet apart, hook them both into a brain wave measuring device and see if a signal induced in one twin would appear simultaneously in the other. The doctors said it worked with the first set of twins, 27-year-old resident orthopedics at Jefferson. By inducing one twin to close his eyes through the rhythmic brain waves, ths same thing happened to the otheT twin at the same time. All ordinary means of communication were ruled out. The subjects, did not even know what the experiment was about. The researchers advertised in Philadelphia newspapers for other identical twins. They checked 16 sets and found one other example of the phenomenon. The researchers said that the experiments "do not permit us to draw any conclusions regarding the incidence of this phenomenon." ' . But, Dr. Behrendt said, "1 just don't say that arything is impossible." According to Dr. Duane, "The interesting thing is, we aren't at all experts on ESP - we have done no work in this area. We just have this one very interesting finding, which we wanted,to publish to get on the record."
