Generally, the industry apparently wns gambling against an imminent walkout, delaying shutdowns until the last moment. Even If the WSH's recommendations are -sweet enough to per.sunde Murray to delay the strike, they may he too bitter for the Industry to accept, thus forcing a strike later on.

Tho mice are still living and propagating freely. The live monkeys survived the actual flights but four of them were killed when nurarhutct currying them back to earth fniled. The fifth monkey Inmlcd nil rlijht but dlnd of heat prostration In the New Mrvl^o desert. Sclciu-c! Fiction OuMonc The account, which outdoes a lot of science fiction, was told a mcet- ItiK of (he Aero Mciiical Association by Dr. .). P. Henry nt tile Air Force's Aero Meclicnl Lnlxirntory :\t Wrisht- Patlerson Base. Dayton. Ohio. The tests were designed to determine the physical and psychological effects of iKiiiK randc "weightless" under certain conditions of extreme nltlludi! Ilieht— a possible hazard flint would fnce man in the regions of free space. Dr. Henry said this "gravity free" condition can be produced for several minutes us n rocket falls freely, with downward acceleration exactly equaling Ihe earth's prr^vitv. . The monkeys and mice apparently Rot through it all right, lie said. " In possible space ships of the future, however, the welchtless condition would be of lengthy duration. In an Interview. Dr. Hcnrv told I how the flights were V-2 rockets, reaching altitudes up to 80 miles, nml the smaller H-.TO- bce rockets, with altitudes up to 40 miles, were used in tests nt Hol- loninn Air Force Base, While Sands, New Mexico. Monkeys Slept All the monkeys iictunlly "slept" through their 2,000-mlie-nn-haiir rirte. because they were anesthetized with morphine. However, as they rode in the nose of a rocket, they were equipped with imtrimients for measuring pulse, breathing, heart action and blnort pressure—and the Information was radioed hack lo earth all dur- (UR flight. The mice were not given nny morphine. And their chamber was equipped with a device in which they were free to run and jump - nnd all the time their antics were bolus automatically photographed. During the "weightless" staee of three minutes, the mice literally float-d In their rocket-nose "cabin" —hut after the descending nose reached a point where gravity again look over, the mice hepped around normally, just as though nothing hnd happened.
