Walker, making his seventh flight in the stubby research plane that is designed to investigate the fringe of space, broke the old mark set by Air Force Maj. Robert White June 23 in the same plane. But it easy. Walker, senior national space agency pilot on the project, had just been dropped, in the X15, from the wing of a B52 bomber flying at 45,000 feet over Beatty, Nev.

The program, obviously a non- ------rating inspired gesture aimed at upgrading our non-knowledge of the non-committed, was decidedly non-symetrical. It focused on a non-eventful conference when it might have done better to zero in on what promises to be an eventful meeting next week of the U.N. General Assembly.
