(AP) - The young engineer's voice crackled across the heavens; 'this is Hrado Dam United States Army Signal Research and Development Laboratory, Corona, Calif " The Sam Findler read the Pres- dent's now famous satellite Christmas message. Picked Up Transmission Tumbling through the dark void of space, the orbiting Atlas satel- ite picked up the transmission ind broadcast it back to another irieking station at Ft. Sam Houston, Tex. Thus, last Saturday, the voice of Findler, 34, became the first other than the President's to be Drondcast from outer space. The engineer from Neptune, N.J.. told Thursday how it was done. Early in November Findler leaded an 11-man team that moved like a band of well equipped gypsies into the rolling 'oothills near Prado Dam, about 50 miles southwest of Los Ange- es. Their job was secretary to set up a satellite tracking station and land ready. j Set Up Finder ! On a hillside a few hundred, rom a busy highway, Findler and lis men set up the .portable gen- rator, radio direction finder, four arge coil antenae and other ma- erial needed to track and talk to the satellite. They managed to brush off questions by. occasional passers>y. The team lived a few miles away in a Coron_ motel. They avoided the townspeople. There were many pinochle games in the motel room. Time dragged. Then last week at Cape Canaveral, Fla., the Atlas blasted off with a fiery swoosh. The waiting [or Findler and company had ended. Predictions Accurate The satellite arrived over Corona within two minutes of the predicted time and was within one half degree of predicted bearing," said Findler. Since then Findler's team of Army and civilian engineers have kept an around the clock watch on the 4-ton satellite. Findler read the President's Christmas message to the satellite Saturday as one of the sta- JAIL DOORS OPEN FOR POPE—Kneeling prisoners, hands clasped prayfully, line the corridors of Rome's Regina Coell prison to hail Pope John XXIII on his historic visit to the institution today.

(AP) - four] men and the 17-year-old wife of of one were shot to death early Christmas morning in this remote Canadian bush country village.. Police said the woman might have been raped. The son of one of the dead men was to be charged with murder today, Inspector Tom Corsie of the Ontario Provincial Police said. One of those killed was Police Constable Calvin Russell Fulford, 28, who was called away front his wife and three small, children to break up a brawl In a one-room log cabin. Possible Rape Corsie said police still were trying to find out what provoked the shooting. The clothing of the dead woman, Mrs. James Gordon, had been torn and she was bniised, indicating she might have been raped, he added. The others killed were Gordon, 26; Albert Young, 47; and George Williams, 47. Young's 27-year-old son Tom was being held. This community of about 500 persons gathered around a hydroelectric dam is 200 miles northeast of Winnipeg. Corsie related these events: Full Moon Shortly after midnight Williams went to Fulford's home to report trouble in Gordon's cabin. Williams and the constable drove back to the cabin, got out and started walking toward it. An almost full moon illuminated them on the snow. When they were about 60 feet away someone opened up with a rifle. Fulford was fatally wounded. Williams dashed on to the cabin. When Fulford failed to come home, his wife called provincial police at Red Lake, 50 miles to! the ngrth. Two officers came and found Fulford's body in the snow, j He had crawled 60 feet back to- j ward his car before dying. j Radioed for Help The two officers radioed for help and the reinfofced policement waited in 10 degree temperature for dawn. Then six officers entered the cabin and found the other four bodies.

Gordon's .30-.30 rifle was missing. Tom Young then started firing at them from a nearby shack, police said. They crawled to within 100 yards of it and fired in two tear gas bombs, Young gave up without further struggle. OwotonM, Mrnft.
