The live television transmissions of the takeoff, relayed to Europe by the Early Bird satellite, were a huge success. Swedish TV experts described it as "a tele-technical triumph.'

In Saigon, the National Legislative Council apparently resolved a political crisis simmering for two weeks. The 20-member council upheld a right of Premier Phan Huy Quat, challenged by Phan Khac Suu, chief of state, to fire two Cabinet ministers. A spokesman said Suu was now supporting Quat. U.S. Ambassador Maxwell D. Taylor, who postponed a projected trip to Washington last weekend to keep watch on the crisis, may now head to the United States in the next few days.

Vietnamese troops were caught in two more Communist ambushes, one followup action by the Reds to an earlier ambush near Lao Thien, about 150 miles northeast of Saigon. * * * Casualties in the first ambush spokesman said. Government losses were listed as 18 killed and 52 wounded, but the figure was expected to go higher when a fuller report is received. Twenty Viet Cong bodies were found, and trails of blood indicated the enemy casualties were much higher. U.S. Marines beat off an attack by an estimated 50 guerrillas in a 15-minute skirmish near Le My, a Communist-infested string of hamlets about six miles northeast of the Da Nang air base. Two Marines were wounded and three .guerrillas were known killed. The battle was described as the hottest the 2nd Marine Battalion has taken part in since it arrived in Viet Nam April 10. * * * One of the wounded Marines was hit in the leg and evacuated to a hospital. His condition was described as good. The other suffered a slight arm wound.

At U.N. headquarters in New York, Soviet Delegate Nikolai T. Fedorenko asked the Security Council to get the Inter-American Force out of the Dominican Republic and to investigate rebel charges that the junta has executed hundreds of rebel sympathizers. U.S. Delegate Charles W. Yost replied that the council was not the place to discuss charges of violation of human rights. He said the Inter-American Force was helping the Dominicans and did not violate the U.N. Charter, Lake, about 3 miles long and iy 2 miles wide, near the Houston homes of both astronauts. White said the jet-gun maneuvering unit he used made it much easier to move about outside the capsule. When he wasn't using it, he said, he had difficulty getting around. White also said he had walked on the equipment section of the Gemini 4 during his excursion. "It looked like I was right on top of it," he said, "It.'s kinda hard to get traction." Then Grissom passed on some news from home. He reported that the Hawks, a Pee - Wee League baseball team for which McDivitt's 8-year-old son Mike sensational 20-minute glide outside the capsule on the third orbit Thursday. However, by the 10th orbit, about 11 hours later, their blood pressure, temperatures and heart beat were back to normal; McDivitt had one complaint early today. A balky latch on White's hatch door kept them from jettisoning the now-surplus equipment needed only for White's space walk. "We are crowded and we have most of that junk down in the foot well," he reported this morning. .; The antics of White, 34, highlighted the first-day voyage as Oemini 4 streaked around and around the earth. rart of today's plan called for White and his command pilot.

After expending about 40 per cent of his fuel, McDivitt abandoned the effort. The chase contributed to a one-orbit delay in White's space excursion. Hodge said that throughout the night, the Gemini 4 was allowed to drift on its orbital path without any expenditure of fuel. Hodge said two orbit-changing maneuvers would be dropped from the flight and there would be some curtailment of scientific experiments that require spacecraft maneuvering. He said McDivitt and White half of what he was expected to consume. : "They didn't eat more because they were elated and excited," the report said. Space officials indicated then was a chance President Johnson might try to call the astronauts sometime today: '*' White stayed alone in space for 20 minutes, double the time spent by a last March, Soviet cosmonaut and had to be coaxed back into the capsule by McDivitt, who followed peremptory commands barked into space from mission control in Houston.
