(AP) —The National Aeronautics and Space Administration announced today that Thursday, June 3, is the target date for the four-day space flight of Gemini astronauts James A/ McDivitt and Edward H. White II. Officials had said previously that the flight was scheduled "in the third quarter of 1965," which begins July 1. However, news services have listed the June 3 date for several weeks, based on unofficial sources. The agency had listed the later period to provide time for preparation and to avoid criticism if the target day were missed. NASA said McDivitt and White will circle the earth 62 times in 97 hours, 50 minutes to evaluate the effects of extended space flight on crew performance and physical condition. The agency said it had not yet determined whether White would be the first American astronaut to expose himself to the elements of space from a spacecraft. It reported that the space suit and hatch-opening procedure had not been fully qualified. A decision might not be made until a day or two before launching, the agency said. If the go-ahead is given, White will open the hatch and poke his head into space for a 15-minute look-around. Soviet Alexei Leonov left his Voskhod spacecraft for a 10- minule walk in space March 18 Complete emergence of a U.S. astronaut is not planned until later this year. The eight U.S. astronauts who have flown into space logged total flight time of 65 hours, 44 minutes. The longest single mission was 34 hours, 20 minutes, by Air Force Maj. L. Gordon Cooper Jr. McDivitt and White, also both Air Force majors, are to triple the present flight-time figure. Soviet cosmonaut Valery Bykovsky stayed in space a record of five days. Soviet scientists indicated he had suffered some medical problems and since Nations negotiated the agreement to suspend the five-day battle which has caused a death toll estimated at more than 100. "I have every hope that this 24-hour cease-fire will be permanent," Dr. Luis F. Fernandez Martinez, president of the Dominican Red Cross, told a newsman. But the junta president, Brig. Gen. Antonio Imbert Barrera, whose forces have cut deep into rebel positions in the northern part of the capital, vowed to carry his attack into the main insurgent stronghold in downtown Santo Domingo. He hinted this would happen next week. Rebel spokesmen acknowledged that their northern forces were being encircled with their backs to the Ozama River. Imbert told a newsman: "It is now too late for a permanent cease-fire such as the United Nations and the Organization of paratroopers may regard and the rebels as the foe because only rebels have shot at them so far. — U.S. intelligence still regards Communist activists trained in Cuba and Eastern Europe as a strong Influence In the rebel movement. — Rather than aiding the junta, U.S. forces have actually held down forays by Imbert's! Senate Approves Bounty Repeal Despite Objections by Mack forces by warplanes blocking off junta at San Isidro Air By DICK BARNES LANSING (AP) — The Senate broke away from trivia and technicalities Thursday in a rnorning-to-midnight session as 48 bills ranging from airport liquor to bounty repeal won approval. Despite their own day of hard work, senators narrowly turned down—at least for the presenV- a broadened legislative retirement program. . The actions put the Senate back into position to beat the May 28 deadline for passage of Senate bills. The airport liquor bill authorized issuance of one above-quota liquor license to each publicly- owned airport in counties of 100,000 or over. Proponents said sale of liquor would help cut airport operating deficits. then have limited their manned space trips to one day. McDivitt and White further Teachers Pension Bill Is Approved By AL SANDNER i LANSING (AP) — The House voted to guarantee retired teachers with 30 years service a minimum pension of $1,800 a year and denied visiting probate judges compensation of $100 a day in a 9V 2 -hour session Thursday. The teacher bill will cost the state $1.9 million next year. If the legislature votes the funds necessary to carry out the pro gram each year, it will cost the state $21 million "over the life of those (relatively few) teachers covered, based on acturia tables," said Rep. George F Montgomery, D- Detroit. The probate judges' bill pro vided they receive $25 a daj when serving as visiting judges in another county. The bill, with Rep.

Supreme court and appeals court judges each won a $9,500 salary boost to $35,000 and $32.500 respectively under bills passed with only one "no" vote.

"We have renewed our military operations and they cannot be stopped," he declared. "We want to avoid bloodshed if possible, and we are giving eve.ry chance to those in the rebel area to surrender or to come out. But we have to take the rebel stronghold very soon, and bring peace back to the country." U.S. military authorities announced that a Marine was killed by rebel fire Wednesday night after he and another Marine accidentally drove their truck into insurgent territory. The body of the dead Marine, identified as Pvt. Joseph C. Crile of Amity, Pa., was returned to U.S. authorities. The other man, Pfc. Leslie Mykle of Utica, N.Y., was released by the rebels. Mykle was wounded. The Marine's death brought to 20 the number of Americans killed since U.S. forces landed in the Dominican Republic more than three weeks ago.

President Johnson has said Communists infiltrated the rebel movement and asserted that the American nations will not allow another country in the hemisphere to fall to the Reds. But he has been at pains to declare that the United States did not intervene in order to promote one faction over the other. Johnson's special mission to Santo Domingo headed by presidential adviser McGeorge Bundy was reported still searching hard for Dominican leaders who would be acceptable to both sides in forming a moderate civilian regime. Such a regime would be designed to hold office until a government could be chosen in free elections. Authoritative sources in SPORTING PROTEST—Sportsmen at Grants Pass, Ore., stage a march to publicize their views on pending federal legislation to curb sale and possession of firearms.

Rafael Fernandez Dominguez, one of the moderates in the rebel leadership, had been viewed by the U.S. emissaries as a prospective candidate for a coalition. But Fernandez was killed Wednesday during a rebel attack on the National Palace held by Imbert's forces close to the U.S.- controlled neutral zone. Informants said the By CARL LEUBSDORF WASHINGTON (AP) — Sen. Gordon Allott attacked today the administration-backed bill to curb gun traffic. He said Lee Harvey Oswald could just as easily have purchased his rifle from a sporting-goods store as from a mail-order house. "That gun from a sporting- goods store would have been just as deadly as the mail-order weapon he used," said Allott, a Colorado Republican, in testimony prepared for the Senate Juvenile Delinquency subcommittee. Two days ago, Atty. Gen. Nicholas Katzenbach, testifying in favor of the bill, told the sub committee: "As long as I live, I can neve forget that it was a mail-orde rifle — sent to a post-office box that had been rented under an assumed name, by a mar with an established record of defec tion and mental instability — that killed President Kennedy.' Allott and another Republica senator from the West — Arizona's Paul Fannin — argued that the administration bill would Lightning Raids Stop Uprising by Rebel Officers One Plotter Killed, 50 Others Arrested SAIGON, South Viet Nam AP) — A lightning series of aids Thursday night and today blocked an attempt to over- hrow Premier Phan Huy Quat's ;overnment and the South Vietnamese military high com* mand. Quat said one rebel offictr was killed resisting arrest. Reliable sources said at least 50 other plotters, including a colonel and several majors were arrested. They were being held at the heavily guarded police headquarters in Saigon. Several of the key plotters were reported still at large. Quat said the coup attempt was the work of dissident military men who tried in November and again in February to take power. "This is a Vietnamese affair." said a U.S. spokesman, adding that the embassy was aware that several plots against the government and the military command were boiling up. The spokesman said Ambas- flred on the American rebels troops who fired back. Whether U.S. or junta troops fired the round that killed Fernandez was not known.

Cyrus R. Vance, deputy defense secretary, told a news conference in Santo Domingo that President Johnson's orders that impartiality be observed by American troops have been made "crystal clear" to all U.S. military commands in the Dominican Republic. Vance added that future U.S. moves in this country would be dictated "by events and circumstances" which are not now foreseeable." In Washington, Asst. Secretary of Defense Arthur Sylvester said American forces from the outset have been under orders to "maintain an attitude of impartiality between the junta and rebel forces." He said they have complied except when firing in self defense against snipers. key figure in Red guerrilla activities in the Dominican Republic in 1963. The council heard a telegram from Jottin Cury, foreign minister in the rebel regime, charging that Fernandez was the victim of a "cowardly attack" by U.S. soldiers. Stevenson said the United States "deeply regrets" the death of Fernandez. In other developments: —The OAS appointed its secretary general, Jose A. Mora of Uruguay as mediator in the Dominican conflict. Mora, who is in Santo Domingo, was asked to coordinate his activities with Jose Antonio Mayobre, the U.N. emissary. The OAS had previously asked the U.N. to step aside while it tried to restore order. — The Brazilian senate gave final legislative approval to the dispatch of a military contingent to the Dominican Republic. House Approves $227 Million Of Proposed 7965-66 Budget Group Clears Way for Talk WASHINGTON (AP) — The I House Rules Committee has LANSING (AP) — The House gave preliminary approval Thursday to $221 million of the 1965-66 budget without significant debate, and without the by Romney and $50 million boost recommended by the Senate. House and Senate Democrats now are working out their differences. sador Maxwell D. Taylor had been "fully informed" of developments. He went ahead with a planned inspection trip to the northern part of the country. The jet plane flying Taylor to the Da Nang air base from Saigon was hit in the i ose by a bullet fired from the ground, but no one aboard knew it until the plane landed. One source said the plane apparently was hit during a low-level flight over, the Chu Lai area, S3 miles south of Da Nang. Quat charged that the Communist Viet Cong had a role in the attempted .coup but did not give details of this. American sources said they the Viet Cong were in fact involved.

Fannin said in his prepared testimony: "The regulations embodied in S. 1592 (the gun bill) would not prevent the determined criminal from obtaining firearms; instead it would impose severe penalties on millions of honest, law-abiding citizens." The subcommittee also hears today from Franklin L. Orth of Washington, executive director of the National Rifle Association. Katzenbach and Sen. Thomas J. Dodd, D-Conn., the subcommittee chairman and chief sponsor of the bill, have accused the NRA of attempting to discredit the bill with false propaganda. The bill would forbid interstate sales of firearms except between licensed manufacturers, importers and dealers and would sharply curb imports of firearms. Thursday, Sen. Robert F.

Senators Seek To Cut Debate By JOHN CHADWICK WASHINGTON (AP)—A petition to close off Senate debate on the Negro voting-rights bill was filed today by 35 senators— 27 Democrats and 8 Republicans. The move to invoke the Senate's debate-limitation rule, restricting »each senator to one hour's speaking time on the bill and all amendments, will be voted on at 1 p.m. next Tuesday. A two-thirds majority of senators voting, or 67 of the 100 senators if all vote, will be required to put the rule into effect. Sen. Philip A. Hart, D-Mich., floor manager of the bill, presented the petition in the absence of Democratic Leader Mike Mansfield of Montana. Mansfield said earlier he didn't know how the move to shut off the debate that began April 22 will turn out, but Re publican Leader Everett M Dlrksen of Illinois predicted it would succeed. aged three 80-foot North Vietnamese boats plying a river near Vinh about 160 miles South of the Communist capital. They encountered heavy groundfire but returned safely. The coup attempt sent all military installations in the Saigon area into a state of alert Thursday night and shattered the calm which had appeared to prevail in the capital's political .world for the past two months. Quat's military supporters apparently acted before the coup attempt got off the ground. There were no signs of the activity usually accompanying such upheavals, and the city this afternoon appeared generally normal. However, the headquarters of the National Police was sealed off, and tanks and machine-gun emplacements were manned around it. Reliable sources said several dozen officers were under arrest inside the headquarters.: Premier Quat announced only that "several" persons had been arrested. The brother of one of the leaders of the February coup was reported arrested Thursday night. He was identified as Pham Ngoc Thun, a civilian. His brother, Col. Pham Ngoc Thau, was sentenced to death in absentia after the February coup. Other sources said at least 10 officers were arrested, including a lieutenant colonel and four majors. Quat had been expected ;to replace the two military members of his Cabinet this weekend with civilians, completing the demilitarization of the government that began with the dissolution early this month of the armed forces council of military leaders that had dominated the government for 18 months. The council dissolved voluntarily under the prodding of Brig. Gen. Nguyen Cao Ky, the powerful commander of ttM Vietnamese air fore?.
