TWELVE PAGES SINGLE COPY 10 CENT* U.S. Space Program to Be Accelerated American Pilots Report Heavy Damage to Vinh Supply Depot SAIGON, south Viet Nam (AP) — Thirty-three American Jets hit the Vinh supply depot in North Viet Nam again today and pilots reported heavy damage to the target despite intense antiaircraft fire. The raid on Vinh, 160 miles south of Hanoi, was the heaviest reported as American planes continued to hammer at targets north of the demilitarized zone. Spokesmen said all planes returned safely to their land bases or carrier bases. Vinh had been hit Monday by U.S. Air Force planes. After the 10-minute attack today, pilots reported they inflicted extensive damage on the 40 or 50 buildings still standing in the supply depot area. They said exact damage assessments were difficult to make because of the intense ground fire. Spokesmen said 23 tons of 750- pound bombs were dropped. They said no enemy planes were sighted Navy pilots said they destroyed 50 per cent of the Co Dinh power plant about 9 miles south of Thanh Hoa. Six Air Force bombers claimed they sank two barges and four sampans nefer the North Vietnamese coastal town of Ron, 220 miles south of Hanoi. Another target was the Lan Van radar station near Vinh. Air Force pilots said they damaged numerous buildings, destroyed two antiaircraft positions and also damaged a sec- Cong and wounded two others in the Da Nang and Chu Lai areas late Monday, spokesmen reported. The Marines captured one of the wounded men and detained 28 others as suspects. A Viet Cong force overran a government rehabilitation center for Viet Cong defectors 25 miles southwest of Saigon. U.S. military authorities said the guerrillas killed seven government troops, wounded six others and 10 more were missing. One Viet Cong was killed in the hour-long assault. Authorities said reinforcements sent into the area failed to find the attackers. U.S. military sources announced that the Navy cruiser Canberra carried out six missions last week in support of U.S. Marine and Vietnamese troops. The cruiser pounded suspected Viet Cong positions along the coast with her eight- inch and five-inch guns, the spokesman said. U.S. Navy warplanes ranged over North Viet Nam for an hour and Monday strafing night, bombing bridges, ware- ondary bridge. In the ground war, U.S. Marine patrols killed five Viet Russians Launch Lunar Rocket MOSCOW (AP) — The Soviet Union launched a rocket toward the moon today in what appeared to be its second try in a month to make history's first soft landing on the lunar surface. The Russians first tested their soft-landing system in Luna 5, which crashed on the moon May 12. But they said at the time that the flight had collected valuable data for further attempts. Luna 6 launch appeared to be the next.try at a soft lunar landing, a key step toward putting a man on the moon. The announcement of the launch by Tass, the official Soviet news agency, made no mention of plans to test a landing system.. The original announcement of the Luna 5 launch did not mention such plans either. But later the Russians announced that an easy landing on the moon would be attempted. Previously they had waited until they had results and then said everything went according to plan. A return to the earlier pattern of waiting for results was thought likely with Luna 6. The official announcement called Luna 6 an "automatic station," the term the Russians normally use to describe an unmanned space craft. The launch came a month after Luna 5 rocketed into space on May 9 and less than a day after the American Gemini 4 spacecraft returned safely. Tass said the flight would continue about three and a half days and was proceeding on a trajectory close to the planned route. It said Luna 6, like Luna 5, —- — —*•••» « »v.j*v/ti/ mai/ uc was launched by a multistage | and his wife Plan a legal sepa- rocket. The last stage of the, ration rocket was put. into orbit around the earth and then launched the "automatic space station" on houses, an oil depot and railway cars. A U.S. military spokesman said four Skyraider fighter- bombers from the U.S. 7th Fleet carrier Bon Homme Richard flew within 90 miles of Hanoi, the Communist capital. They encountered heavy groundfire in some areas, but all returned safely. Using 500 - and 1,000 - pound bombs, cannon and rockets, the raiders attacked 14 warehouses 125 miles south of Hanoi. They reported three buildings afire and three smoldering. The pilots also reported damage to a petroleum storage depot 130 miles southwest of the Red capital and said antiaircraft fire was heavy there. A warehouse area 130 miles south of Hanoi was reported 60 per cent destroyed. Targets also included one bridge 90 miles southwest of Hanoi and another 165 miles southwest. A report from Da Nang said Viet Cong forces blew up a concrete bridge today on Highway 1 as the Communists continued their drive to disrupt road and rail traffic in and- out of Da Nang. Military authorities said the bridge near the Hal Ban pass between Da Nang and Hue would be repaired by tonight. About 400 more Australian troops • arrived aboard the carrier Sydney at Vung Tau, 40 miles southeast of Saigon. They were flown to Bien Hoa air base 15 miles northeast of the capital to join other elements of the Royal Australian Regiment. About 800 Australians are being sent to Viet Nam. They will be stationed with U.S. paratroops of the 173rd Airborne Brigade at Bien Hoa. , Brig. Gen. Nguyen Chanh Thi, commander of the South Vietnamese 1st Corps at Da Nang, where 16,000 U.S. Marines are stationed, said the U.S. command has put the leathernecks at his disposal for use in major operations against the Viet Cong.

By VERN HAUGLAND ABOARD USS WASP (AP)— Relaxing under the blue sky through which they flew astronauts James A. McDivitt and Edward H. White II had the run of this aircraft carrier today- while doctors measured surprisingly light effects of their four- day space journey. The astronauts continued J;o go through periodic medical checks. Dr. Charles A. Berry, astronaut flight surgeon, said they had less apparent physical difficulties than did some Mercury astronauts oh shorter missions. Berry said it will probably be necessary to keep the astronauts on shipboard until Thursday morning Still the ship is comparatively a lot of room to ramble in for the astronauts who were cramped into the tight Gemini spacecraft for 97 hours and 57 minutes. The astronauts turned in Monday night at 11 p.m. They were still abed at 9 this morning. "Both men were real tired last night, Jim more than Ed," Berry said. * * * "Both were bushed. They really wanted to turn in. This is in conflict with the urge that all of the astronauts have after a mission—they all have so much they want to get rid of in talk, and in getting things out before they forget. They could have gone on for a number of hours of talk last night if they felt that' that was indicated." Although figures are hot yet. available — both men had some weight loss — Berry said thei weight loss certainly was less for four days than for a mission of 34 hours. "Gemini 4 showed that the weight loss is not an incremental thing — it doesn't get more for every day in space," Berry said. "There was npt a marked increase over what Gordon Cooper experienced." Physcians have felt all along that the principal cause of weightless in space night is the amount of sweating. Berry said flight cabin temperatures remained comfortably low throughout —even during the parachute descent it was 70 degrees. 'This was a real switch from what we had before," Berry said. "The system functioned «well and put the astronauts in much better shape to do the work of preparing for re-entry than would otherwise have been possible." * * * After the astronauts were floating on the water they decided to keep their suits on rather than take them off and go to the bother of reconnecting the blood pressure equipment. Berry said they took five or six blood pressure readings while on the water. A tape recorder containing this data has been flown to Houston. Berry said the postflight landing environment was much better than ever before. The sea state was excellent, and the immediate availability of a helicopter allayed any concern. For the last three or four days before the flight, physicians went over with the astronauts the problems of postflight weightless effects. Berry said the astronauts knew what had to be done if necessary. "We briefed them about procedures on the water, as to what maneuvers they should do if they felt pain or any slight symptom — how to pump -their legs, elevate their feet," Berry said. The problem is that the astronaut heart—weakened by pumping in a weightless condition in space — is at first not efficiently pumping when it returns to earth gravity. Blood tends to pool in the legs and feet when the astronauts stand up. Some have felt faint. Berry said that at the bridling of the parachute, when the capsule is tilted into its landing attitude, the astronauts, in effect, had their first tilt with gravity. Tne.v were flipped up, and each man's heart was required to pump blood to his head. Berry said that at this point they had no symptoms whatever. * * *' "This was^.very -gratifying to us," Berry said. "It was far, far better than anything we could have expected. "We fully expected there might have been a loss of consciousness, although we thought it might not be that severe a thing. This proved to be true." Again, in standing up to get out of the spacecraft and into the life Vaft, there were no symptoms — no lightheadedness, nausea or confusion resulting from a.loss of blood supply to the brain, Berry added. White's slight nausea in the raft was probably the result of seasickness, he said. At Houston, Tex., officials of the Manned Spacecraft Center said no decisions had been made on when the astronauts will leave the Wasp and return to Houston for a news conference. * * *.. Berry said the Gemini physicians were "tremendously optimistic" as to the implications for longer space missions of the future, from observations to date as to symptoms of ill effects on heart or blood vessel systems. The symptoms have not been as marked as on the three-or four-hour Mercury missions such as the one made in 1963 by Air Force Maj. L. Gordon Cooper, he said. Berry flew to the Wasp Monday from Houston after the end of the 1,609,684-mile space mission. Dr. Howard Minners, one of the first physicians to examine the astronauts, had said Monday both were sound and "active, talkative and cheerful." Other Americans across the land, who stayed glued to their televisions during the dramatic landing sequence which ended with splashdown at 12:13 p.m. (EST) Monday, were equally cheerful — including the President of the United States. 'I just wanted to say to you and Maj. White 'well done'," President Johnson said to McDivitt by telephone shortly after the two had been plucked from the Atlantic and landed safely on the deck of the Wasp at 1:09 p.m. to a thunderous ovation from the ship's mighty crew. + * * "We're all in this country very proud of you." the President continued, "and I think the entire world is grateful for what you've done and particularly for your safe return "You've both written your name in history and in our hearts." Then the President invited White and McDivitt to his Texas ranch this weekend where he said he had been "saving a little something for you" — presumably some sort of award. The mayor of New York also invited them there for a traditional ticker-tape parade. Judging from the reaction of space officials at the Houston Mission Control, the pair plainly deserved both an award and a parade. They were jubilant over the success of the mission, which included White's 20-minute adventure outside the capsule, and said they see no barrier to moving ahead in the Gemini program to a seven-day f'ight in August. See ASTRONAUTS—Page 1O. Timothy Nicholson Convicted In Slaying of Twin Brother PASADENA, Calif. (AP) — Years of conflict that resulted in death for wealthy Todd Nicholson have ended in a prison term for his twin brother, Timothy. Timothy Nicholson, 22, was convicted Monday of manslaughter in the fatal shooting of his brother Todd at the climax of a bitter quarrel last Dec. 7. Timothy faces one to 10 years in prison. He is not eligible for probation, but could be paroled 1 after about 18 months. A jury of ' seven men and five women reached the verdict after deliberating two days. Other possible verdicts were frst-or second - degree murder and acquittal. The emotion-charged trial — spread over five and one-half weeks — produced testimony of violent rages, protestations of self-defense and charges of falsehood. Timothy sat dry-eyed, his head bowed, through the reading of the verdict. Witnesses for the defense testified Todd possessed an explosive, almost psychotic, temper, often aimed at Timothy. They also said Todd had taken out a $1-million insurance policy on Timothy's life, then presented himself as Timothy for the j physical examination. The I twins' mother, Robeita Nichol- son, confirmed this on the witness stand. The twins, heirs to Cudahy meat - packing and Pullman sleeping - car fortunes, had pooled their efforts in profitable real estate investments, mostly through the Sun Development Co. of Phoenix, Ariz. The prosecution claimed Timothy once threatened to kill Todd, then tried to hire a house painter to "get rid of" Todd. Failing in this, the prosecutor said, Timothy decided to kill Todd himself. "What caused the defendant to develop this great hatred toward his twin brother, I can't explain, but it was there," said Deputy Dist. Atty. Joseph Carr in his summation to the jury. The defense described Timothy as the milder of the twins, indicating he regularly left home, beginning at age 19, when Todd, in a violent rage, kicked him out. "When Todd gets mad," Timothy testified, "the only thing to do is to just leave Todd alone." Superior Court Judge H. Burton Noble set July 9 for sentencing. The jury did not specify in its verdict whether the manslaughter was voluntary or involuntary. In either case the penalty is the same. Color Movies Clearly Show White's Movements in Space HOUSTON, Tex. (AP) — Astronaut Edward White emerged casually from the Gemini 4 spacecraft in darkness, and, floating along with it at 17,500 miles an hour, moved into the blazing glare of the unfiltered sunlight. The sun's rays first struck dramatically on an American flag sewn to his left sleeve. This was shown vividly today in color movies made by an automatic camera attached to the underside of the spacecraft. The color film, in excellent focus, was run off for newsmen at the Manned Spacecraft Center. The pictures were made June Rebels Appoint Mediating Team By ROBERT BERRELLEZ SANTO DOMINGO, Dominican Republic (AP) — The Dominican rebels have appointed a peace negotiating team, a move believed to indicate they are easing their opposition to proposals for a political settlement. The six-man team is headed by rebel chief Col. Francisco Caamano Deno and includes Hector Aristy, Caamano's presidential minister in the insurgents' constitutionalist government, Foreign Minster Jottin Cury, Atty. Gen. Salvador Blanco and rebel Senate President Anibal Campagna. The name of the sixth member was not immediately known. The three-nation mediating team from the Organization of American States continued to meet with local leaders in an effort to break the stalemate. The OAS group is made up of Ambassadors Ellsworth Bunker of the United States, Ilmar Penna Marinho of Brazil and Ramon de Clairmont Duenas of El Salvador. In their first contact the mediators were told the rebels would accept no solution that did not call for revival of the 1963 constitution and formation of a new government in accordance with it. The OAS team planned to go into the interior of'the country today to sound out business and political leaders. The mediators have been approaching some leaders not readily identified with either the rebel or Junta side. This has roused speculation that they may have in mind a new "third force" formula for a government dominated by members not linked to either faction. In Cordoba, Argentina, U.S. Consul Allison Temple Wanamaker, 46, of Seattle, Wash., was seriously wounded Monday night by gunfire from a passing car while driving home. Attending physicians said he was hit in the cheek and left hand. Police could give no reason for the attack, but anti-U.S. demonstrations have been held in various Argentine cities protesting the U.S. intervention n the Dominican Republic. Cordoba is an industrial- and university city, and leftist feeling is high among many workers and students. Kosygm Talks With N. Viet Nam Premier MOSCOW (AP) — Premier Alexei Kosygin talked today in the Kremlin with a deputy premier of North Viet Nam, Le Tan Ngi. Details of the talks were not available. 3 when White became the first American to venture into space protected only by his suit —and became the first human ever to propel himself in space with a jet-like gun. The color film was strikingly bright. The sun glistened on white's silvery space suit and sparkled on the 25-foot golden lifeline which attached him to the space ship. Beneath him, the earth was a blue-green ball, with White floating just over its curve. In White's right hand appeared to be the space gun with which he pushed himself around the capsule. His left hand was empty. White stood out starkly against the blackness of space. The capsule appeared to be a nondescript gray White maneuvered slowly but with apparent ease. Twisting and turning about the space ship. Sometimes his movements seemed somewhat jerky. At one point he snapped off a salute. The golden lifeline coiled and twisted as White worked his way, propelling himself with a space gun. The free end of a harness strap flapped about him. The American movie far surpassed the films released by the Soviet Union of the first walk in space by Russian Alexei Leonov last March 18. The U. S. films were clearer and showed dramatically White's movements in space. Space officials released one still picture in the series. It showed White, in almost a spreadeagle but apparently relaxed position, floating over the rim of the earth NASA said the picture was taken from a sequence of 16mm film shot automatically by the spacecraft's belly-mounted camera at six frames per second— slow motion for clarity. Les Gaver, audio-visual chief for the National Aeronautics and Space Agency, said the terrain below White appeared to be the Texas coast. The color movie lasts about 12 minutes. Bullets Wound U.S. Official CORDOBA, Argentina (AP)— U.S. Consul Allison Temple Wanamaker, wounded when a passing car riddled his automobile with machine-gun bullets, was reported by his doctors today to be out of danger. Wanamaker, 46, of Seattle, underwent surgery Monday night for a bullet wound in the left hand and facial wounds caused when a bullet hit his jaw on the left side and .passed through the other side. He told newsmen today he had no idea of the reasons behind the attack, which occurred Monday night while he was driving on the outskirts of Cordoba. In Washington, U.S. officials said followers of Cuban Communist dictator Fidel Castro may have been responsible for the shooting. Wanamaker recalled that eight months ago a youth shot at him but missed. And some days ago, a bomb exploded under his parked car. Police sources said Wanamaker was driving home when the car overtook him. Several shots were fired and the attackers fled while Wanamaker fought to control his car. Cordoba is an industrial, auto- making and university city 500 miles west of Buenos Aires. Leftist feeling runs high among workers and some student groups. ACTRESS DIES—Judy Holliday, above, who won an Oscar for "Born Yesterday" in which she played the junk dealer's squeaky-voiced babe, died in New York after a long illness of cancer. She was 41. (AP Wire- photo) Plane Search Is Extended MIAMI, Fla. (AP) — A search for a 0119 Air Force cargo plane and its 10 men was extended over 100,000 square miles of sea Monday. The plane, carrying nine hours of fuel, left Homestead Air Force Base near Miami Saturday night for Grand Turk Island in the Bahamas. Its last reported position was Cricket Island, about 100 miles from Grand Turk. Foul weather hampered Monday's search by 22 Air Force, Navy and Coast Guard aircraft and two Coast Guard cutters. Air Force officials said the plane carried ample survival equipment, including a 20-man life raft. Plan Is Stepped Up by Successful Gemini 4 Flight Rocket for Gemini 5 Is Erected at Cape By HOWARD BENEDICT AP Aerospace Writer HOUSTON, Tex. (AP) — A space agency official, commenting on the remarkable flight of Gemini 4, said: "You ain't seen nothing yet." He was looking to future U.S. man-in-space flights which will be launched on an accelerated schedule as a result of the success of astronauts James A. Me- Divitt and Edward H. White II. Gemini spacecraft will hook up with other satellites; the pilots will perform intricate maneuvers during trips up to two weeks; and men will walk and work outside their orbiting spacecraft for longer periods than the excursion made by White. Then on to the moon—perhaps only three years from now ~ and man's greatest adventure. Even as McDivitt and White were being hoisted from the Atlantic Ocean Monday after their four-day trip, the Titan 3 rocket for Gemini 5 was being erected at Cape Kennedy. The ,crew will be veteran Astronaut L. Gordon Cooper Jr., whose 34-hour American space- flight record was shattered by Gemini 4, and rookie pilot Charles Conrad Jr. They have a late August date with the stars. * * * Cooper and Conrad are to stay, in space for seven days, but space agency .officials hinted they could be up for a longer time — based on preliminary data from Gemini 4. Dr. Charles A. Berry, director of Gemini medical operations, said that preliminary examination of McDivitt and White indicates that "we've knocked down a lot of straw men with this mission." He said that weightlessness apparently is not as dangerous as was feared, at least not fay four days. Cooper had shown some disquieting symptoms, especially in the heart and blood vessel systems, as did Soviet cosmonaut Valery Bykovsky after his record five-day space trip. Berry said that a rigid exercise .schedule with a stretch cord apparently helped McDivitt and White to overcome any after-effects of weightlessness. Berry also listed the buildup of heat in a spacecraft as another toppled "straw man." He said a steady temperature of around 65 degrees, with no lui- midity, was maintained throughout the flight. The physician said White experienced no dizziness during his space walk — as the Russian Alexei Leonov reported on his March 18 stroll. * * * Gemini project director Charles Mathews called Gemini 4 a milestone, "and now we're looking forward to the real interesting things contemplated in the future.' ,> He said the Gemini 5 spacecraft will be somewhat different | than Gemini 4. For one thing 'it iwill generate electrical power from a fuel cell — a device which converts liquid hydrogen and liquid oxygen into energy. It will replace bulky batteries with a great saving in weight.F The fuel cell will give Gemini 5 a long-life capability. A similar cell is being developed for Apollo man-to-the-moon flights! Cooper and Conrad also will launch their own satellite froin the nose of their spacecraft. It will be an instrumental sphere the size of a beach^ ball. Then they will use a radar system to practice rendezvousing with jt. McDivitt and White had no r# dar to help in their futile a£ tempt to maneuver close to the orbiting second stage of their booster rocket. j The rendezvous exercise will i be a vital rehearsal for the first iU.S. attempt to hook up 'a i manned spacecraft with another 'orbiting satellite. - v | The flight is scheduled in Otf- itober, with astronauts Walter JM. Schirra Jr. and Thomas P. , Stafford in Gemini 8. The target satellite will be the second stage of an Atlas-Agena rocket launched one or more orbnp before Gemini 6, , ; Stafford plans to leave (ft spacecraft after the hookup apt practice working with tools spacecraft nuts and bolt". could be the forerunner of repairmen who ferry See SCHEDULE-Paf«
