Studying their instruments at the comfortable temperature of 71.6 degrees maintained in their gondola, the scientists cruised thru space where the temperature was 88 below zero. Starting at 8:43 a. m.,' from the local airport, they reached at 9:58 a. m. an altitude of 17.9 kilometres (11 miles 204 yards).

Whore Is the University of Peace Is Expected in Soft Coal Area HYDE PARK, N. T. (GE^- Presideht Roosevelt Saturday opened the way for peace in bituminous coal fields by approving an agreement that places mines owned by steel companies under the coal 'code. Mr. Roosevelt expected the agreement to put 100,000 men back to-work Monday. The western Pennsylvania fields have been disrupted for days by a strike of 75,000 workers protesting because the steel controlled mines had not signed the coal code. Approximately 35,000 steel workers were deprived of work because of the strike. "These operators (of 'captive' mines) are already bound by the iron and steel code," a . formal statement issued from the summer white house said. "They agree- to comply with the maximum hours of labor and pay at east the minimum rates prescribed by the coal code already signed by the other coal operators." Mr. Roosevelt signed the document In the presence of Donald Richberg, NRA chief counsel, and Stephen Early, his secretary. The summer white house explained also that in addition to .he agreement "the president has also signed two executive orders, j one completing the schedule of basic minimum rates for the coal code, rounding out the rates pre- iously. approved September 18; he other appointing Administra- or Hugh S.

"It is the most dangerous situation we have ever faced,"- said a Legion executive who has spent three months traveling about the country organizing support for the four-point program. "Almost every .congressman who voted for the Roosevelt' economy bill is "out promising everything under the sun in an effort to win back veterans' votes he fears lost thru the economy vote. "When congress assembles these legislators will introduce every sort of -measure you can .magine. They will press strongly for passage of these laws in order to be on record for the 1934 elections. Nothing could be worse from the standpoint of the jegion. It was just such action as this which brought the crip- jling economy act of last spring. We plan every effort to halt this Insane legislation." "Our four-point program," said National Commander - Louis A. Johnson, "really represents little more than tfie government promised in passing the economy act. The legislation built up during the past 15 years has been destroyed. The Legion program would round out an intelligent veterans' policy."

A^nrinistratbr Hugh Johnson, convalescing from a minor operation, called President William Green of the American Federation of Labor to his hospital room but apparently was unable to obtain the desired assurances. Johnson did not retreat from his position that the government must uphold the letter o! the section of the recovery act which guarantees labor the right to organize and bar gain collectively but he tried, to persuade labor that it might be dis astrous to press its advantage too strongly at this time. A major industrial tie up. it was feared, might wreck the entire NRA program.
