The astronaut's godparents, Mr. and Mrs. Harry Schmidt of faecatur, Mich., spent the four days with the McDivitts. Mrs. Schmidt is Mrs. McDivltt's twin sister. Also with them was Fred Asselin, a representative of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration assigned to help with contacts with newsmen. The McDivitts started each day by attending mass. Then they followed television, radio and newspaper accounts of the flight, and visited friends and relatives. McDivitt visited a local driving range for some golf Friday and the activity was covered nearly as fully as some tournaments. The senior McDivitt, an electrical engineer, has been intensely interested in the mis- 'sion's technical details, and is as anxious to "debrief" his son as NASA officials. "I'd like to talk to him a long time," he said. "I'd like to know a lot about these things." He also has said if he were younger, he would want to be up in space exploring, too. Within moments after reports that the astronauts were safely down, a delivery boy appeared with a dozen roses from William Atkinson, president of Jackson College, which the astronaut once attended. A billboard congratulating the spacemen went up in Jackson, and restaurant manager John Bardallis had a banner saluting them in his window all the time. 1 Circuit Court Opens June 14 ONTONAGON— Circuit Court for Ontonagon County will convene June 14 at the court house in Ontonagon with Circuit Judge Robert R.
