THE BCST ft SMOKIEST CATTLC "It was a low-budget cattle drive. I woulda been okay but I kept falling off my cow!" Flight Has Provided Wealth Of Encouraging Information By HOWARD BENEDICT AP Aerospace Writer' HOUSTON, Tex. (AP) — The, marathon flight of the Gemini 4 has provided a wealth of encouraging information that one space official said "certainly should shorten the road to the moon." It already is being used to plan ' future Gemini launchings and Apollo missions to the moon and beyond. Among the outstanding things earned are that man can' operate effectively outside an orbit- ng spacecraft; that radar and other aids are needed for rendezvous activity; that man can remain alert after long periods n weightlessness, and that over extended periods humidity does not build up inside a capsule as /as feared. The primary medical data still must be obtained. It will be gathered in extensive examina- ion of astronauts James A. McDivitt and Edward H. White II over the next several weeks. "It is this medical data which will tell us whether we can move on to 7-day and then 14- day missions," said Dr. Charles A. Berry, the medical opera' tions director tor Gemini 4. "This post-flight medical information is going to be ex- remely important," Berry said. 'We're really going .to give them a thorough going, over." Berry said that throughout the flight the astronauts had shown no physical or mental deterioration and they had remained remarkably alert. "This is about what we expected as long as they were in space," Berry said. "What we're concerned about is when they return to earth and their body systems have to readjust to a gravty environment. Body systems adjust very well to the leisure of weightlessness, but our earlier flights have shown some disquieting symptons after reentry.'" Both American and Soviet spacemen have experienced temporary troubles, primarily in their heqrt and blood vessel s'ystems, after long exposure to the space environment. The flight of McDivitt and White has nearly tripled the total weightless time logged by eight previous U.S. astronauts and should provide valuable guidelines for the future. Mission director Chris Kraft said he was pleased that over the long trip the astronauts have shown no irritability in their cramped quarters. They're still in good humor and after an initial adjustment period had no trouble eating, sleeping and wording." Kraft termed the 20-minute space walk by White during the third orbit the major achievement. Using a jet-gun propulsion unit, White maneuvered in the emptiness of space, attached to the Gemini 4 by a 25- foot lifeline. Russian cosmonaut Alexei Leonov, the world's only previous space stroller, had no propulsion unit. Leonov reported some problem with disorlenta- tion, but White did not. Dr. Joseph Shea, director of the Apollo man-to-the-moon pro- Religious Art Exhibit Slated BESSEMER — The Sharon Lutheran Church will sponsor a religious art exhibit in Kast- mar.

"With this knowledge," he said, "we can now plan emergency procedures which involve men leaving the moonship to make repairs or to transfer from one segment of the ship to another if connecting tunnels are blocked." Shea said the Gemini 4 flight "certainly should shorten the road to, the moon," and cited these contributions to Apollo: —Refined operational procedures which enabled the Gemini 4 to keep a launching date set weeks in advance. These procedures, mostly concerned with pre-launch testing and checkout, will be applied to Apollo. —The success of several experiments conducted with Apollo in mind. These included use of a sextant for space navigation and the sighting and photographing of prominent landmarks visible from a great height, which might be used as reference points for astronauts returning from lunar voyages. —Evidence that buildup of humidity in a space cabin is no problem. "We suspected." said Shea, "that moisture generated by the astronauts and cabin systems might coat the walls and equipment. But the relative humidity has remained around 50 per cent. This certainly is encouraging." Moisture could foul up electrical systems or turn to damaging ice crystals during astronaut excursions into space. Shea is durecting his program toward a 1969 manned lunar landing. But he emphasized, as he has in the past, that continued success In Gemini and early success in the Apollo program could accelerate the date to 1968.
