(AP) Union members are expected to continue voting today on new contract proposals by the Dow Chemical and Ethyl-Dow Chemical Companies. The results of the balloting will be disclosed Wednesday, union officials said Monday when the separate membership meetings begas voting. Botn companies have contracts with eight unions and Ethyl Dow has a contract with a ninth union. Last month, the ,nlne metal trade unions held similar meetings when negotiations began shortly before the expiration of the old contract on 'June 16. In June the union rejected •the contract proposals by a 2-1 margin. Monday and Tuesday's voting will be reported on an individual union basis rather than on a collective Metal Trades Council basis, union officials said Monday. Bored Bonny Rides Back To Sp/ashdown in Pacific HONOLULU (AP) — Astro- monk Bonny, exhausted and bored, has ridden back to earth and splashed into the Pacific, his Biosatellite 3 mission cut short by more than three weeks.

Evans said the monkey performed his assigned tasks successfully until the weekend, pushing the right buttons for food and water and playing programmed games to keep him busy. But in the ninth day of the mission, after 130 orbits, Bonny failed to perform certain chores and went without the normal ration of water. It was decided then to bring Bonny back to earth rather than to risk his more serious deterioration. "The monk's performance just started to drop off," Evans said. Three U.S. manned spacecraft flights lasted longer than Bonny's. Apollo 9 flew 10 days and Apollo 7 flew 10 days and 20 hours within the past year. The Gemini 7 flight of Frank Borman and James A.

Ben Barnes said late Monday night he will keep four weekend speaking dates in Texas despite an outbreak of cholera in Hong Kong that threatened to delay his flight home from the Asian port. Barnes had first canceled the appearances at Dallas, San Antonio, Houston and Cameron when he thought he and his wife would have to wait out a seven- day innoculation period. But later the lieutenant governor said, "I have canceled my cancelation of the speeches." He said he and Mrs. Barnes will leave Hong Kong Thursday. Barnes said the change in plans came when he was informed by U. S. Consulate offi- to Asia "because we were going only to Japan and Hong Kong and neither is considered a cholera area. But maybe it would be a good idea for the U.S. authorities to make cholera shots mandatory for all travelers to and from any part of Asia," he said. "I understand there is nearly always cholera somewhere in Asia—even if Japan and Hong Kong are virtually always dear of it." The lieutenant governor said he and his wife had at first planned to use what they thought would be an enforced vacation to "see a lot of Hong Kong, including the way the Hong Kong government has met the problem of houseing., cials that he would not have (feeding and furnishing jobs for to wait out the innoculation period if he submitted to cholera tests oil arrival in the United $tates and continued to check with U.S. health officials daily for a week.

Johnson has filmed a series for CBS television reviewing his years in public office. The first, covering his role in the space program as senator, vice president and president, will be worked into the network's coverage of the moon landing flight. Richard S. Salant, president of CBS News, said the film for the first broadcast was made July 5 at the LBJ Ranch outside Austin, Tex., with Walter Cronkite as reporter. In future broadcasts Johnson will review his political career and the major issues of his times. Houston Records First Polio Case HOUSTON (AP) — A four- year old boy and his 15-month- old sister are Houston's first polio cases for 1969. Medical officials completed tests Monday that confirmed the two Mexican-Americans have type-I polio. Neither had received any polio vaccine. The children were taken to the Texas Institute for Rehabilitation and Research. "We can expect sporadic cases of almost any disease in a city this large. These two do not suggest we are on the verge of anything serious or dangerous," Dr. Loe said. Carrier CARRIER RQ9M AIR CONDITIONER BOB IS BACK!!!

"Most people feel the war has gone on too long, but we do not feel it is in the American tradition to agree to dishonorable peace," he was tdd. The next monring, Saturday, in West Allis, an industrial suburb of Milwaukee, Proxmire also heard a lot about Vietnam. Many of those who spoke up urged speedy withdrawal. "I fought in World War II," a 45-year old Hales Corners, Wis. engineer told Proxmire." "I had so question but what that was the thing to do. "But I wouldn't serve in Vietnam and, if it comes to that, I don't think my 20-year old son will either. If he made his own decision to resist the draft I'd support him in any way I could." CAPE KENNEDY, PU. (AP) — "We'll have & view of the latiding area from about 8.000 feet, two to three minutes before landing ... we'll be continuously observing it fof its suitability, namely a sniooth touchdown point and absence of large craters." That's how Astronaut Neil A. Armstrong describes the final moments of the daring descent to the moon he and Edwin E. Aldrin Jr. are to make July 20, four days after Apollo 11 Is launched. The planned landing area is a three-by-seven-mile oval in the Sea of Tranquillity. In practice this week, the two moon-bound men are concentrating on the critical and dangerous landing and takeoff in a lunar module (LM) trainer, while fellow astronaut Michael Collins works in the command ship simulator. They also planned today to rehearse the launching from Cape Kennedy. "As we come down lower and lower," Armstrong said in an interview last week, "we'll be able to evaluate the landing site better. If required, we will alter 'Bible School Slated By Richland Church HIGHLAND SPRINGS (BBC) —First Christian Church Bible school will begin at 5 p.m. Sunday with registration and the first class. The school will run through Friday morning, July 18.

"Then, as we come through the 500 foot level or thereabouts, we'll probably take control of the attitude manually and fly it to the precise touchdown point," the Apollo 11 commander said. "As we reach the hover point," he continued, "we'll probably have a minute and a half or so of fuel which will per* mit us to go a relatively good distance, perhaps 1.000 feet if we choose. I wouldn't anticipate that we would do that. I would hope that we would generally get into the right area much earlier by changing the trajectory at a higher altitude. "The fuel penalty for changing the landing point Is much less at higher altitude," he explained. "It becomes quite significant down close to the surface." When Armstrong and Aldrui lift off, they will rendezvous with Collins, who will orbit the moon while his companions explore below.
