The Boston Globe Friday, 'August 26. 16 Titan Explodes, Ruins Launch of 8 Satellites - CAFE KENNEDY (UPI), A 700-ton Titan 3C Rocket, urging toward space with a load of military communications satellites, exploded in a spectacular flash of orange flame this morning high over the Atlantic. ; Eleven tiny ribbons of moke drifted slowly down toward the ocean apparently the remnants of the mighty Air Force rocket. The Air Force said it had no immediate indication of what happened to the triple-barreled Titan, carrying eight military satellites into orbit ; to extend the Pentagon's world-wide radio networks. "The vehicle destroyed it-: self 80 seconds after launch," the Air Force announced. "We are trying to get more in-formation on the cause of the malfunction." All debris apparently fell into the ocean. The 124-foot high rocket, with two 1.2-million-pound thrust rockets fueled with olid propellant, thundered off its launch pad in a tremendous cloud of white smoke and yellow flame. The launch was at 10 a.m. It soared into the cloudless sky on a slight arc, leaving a clear trail of smoke all the way back to the pad. When it was about 10 miles high and still perfectly visible, it disappeared in an orange burst of flame. Its trail of white smoke ended abruptly in a puff of red.

Applying that to Viet Nam, he said, as he has repeatedly said, "we shall count it a mark of success when all the parties to that dispute are around a conference table." In the field of freedom, free speech, and human dignity,! Johnson said "all people want the dignity that goes with constitutional and civil liberty." America will defend the right of disagreement abroad as well as at home, Johnson said, and it has no mandate to interfere wherever government falls short of our specifications. "But we shall have and de serve the resp?ct of the peo ple of other countries only as they know what side we are on, he added. Applying that principle, Johnson said in the Communist countries "we are on the side of those who, year by year, seek to enlarge the spectrum of discussion." In a statement prepared for his arrival at Pocatello, Ida., Johnson said many nations in the world know only the prob lems of poverty, and no nation is altogether free of them Reds9 Luna 11 Woo; Halfway MOSCOW (UPI) A Sovietjhave been shrouded in silence, space rocket neared the half-. and the lack of information way mark today on its mission was not seen as a sign cf !to put a second Russian-made trouble. satellite into orbit around the Luna 11 was expected to moon.

"We are not aware of the cause of this deviation from normal flight path," he said 25 minutes after the spectacular blast, but he said an investigation would probably find it. The mission was an attempt to double the size of the Defense Department's orbiting radio communications system. The rocket was about 15 miles high when it destroyed itself. The failure followed the successful launch Thursday of a Saturn I super rocket, even more powerful than the Titan 3C, which hurled an unmanned Apollo spaceship to a Pacific Ocean splashdown.
