Meanwhile, Indiana State Police issued a weekly provisional report showing 32 persons were killed in traffic in the 'first 10 days of June. The report showed there have been increases in each classification of deaths by locations.

WASHINGTON (UPI)-A Soviet scientist warns that the sun may be firing deadly nuclear bullets broadside at any astronauts who try to visit the" moon from 1966 through 1970. This is precisely the period in •which the United States hopes to land three-man Apollo crews on the moon and bring them safely home again. A spokesman said the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) was well aware of the solar menace to space travel mentioned by the Russian scientist, Prof. G. Pokrovskiy of Moscow. NASA, the spokesman said ihopes means of forecasting solar bombardments, and thus avoiding them, may be found before the first Apollo crews are sent into orbit around the moon in 1966 From time to time gigantic eruptions, or flares, occur on the face of the sun. They are asso ciated with sunspots. Some of the larger eruptions, known as cos mic ray flares, spew myriads o high energy particles into space These particles are protons, th< core of hydrogen atoms. Travel ing at many thousands of miles a second, they constitute' one o .the most serious obstacles t manned space flight., Material shields dense enough i protect astronauts from them vill be prohibitively heavy until onsiderably more powerful rock- Is are enveloped than any now n the cards for 1966-70. Writing on "flights to the moon, Jars, and Venus" in a Moscow jublication, Pokrovskiy said manned trips to the moon "should be made during the period of the quiet sun." He said parenthetically thai 'this would appear to exclude the 'ears of high solar activity 1966'0."
