(UPI) — The year 1921 -was a .thrilling one for sports .fans but there were no spectacular headlines on the news pages. , The New York Giants beat the New York Yankees in the World Series, Babe Ruth hit 59 home runs to set a new record, Jack Dempsey flattened war hero Georges Carpentier in the third round of their heavyweight title fight, jockey Earel Sande rode Grey Lag to victory in the Kentucky Derby, Walter Hagen won the Professional Golf Association championship and Tommy Milton won the Indianapolis 500-mile auto race at an average speed of 89.62 miles. That was the year when President Harding signed a joint congressional resolution -declaring peace with Germany and Austria. That also was the year when William A. Hightower went to prison for slaying a Roman Catholic priest. 43 Years In Prison Hightower was 43 years old on the day the prison gate closed behind him.

"I'm not going out running the world, just to have a look at it," said Hightower, now 86, with a mental and physical demeanor that belied Ms age. "I don't give a damn what the public .thinks," Hightower snapped. "They didn't care about me so why should I care what they think." Then he softened the remark, adding: "I have no feelings,.no bitterness against anybody. I'm going out." Reflecting on the years he spent as a "guest" of the state, Hightower said, "they've been very good to me in prison." Looking Ahead He said he felt things .had improved immeasurably since his imprisonment and he wants to get a good look at it all. "I'm not thinking back, just looking ahead," Hightower told a n ewsman who had visited him twice in prison. Before leaving Hightower was wished "good luck" by prison Superintendent John Klinger. Prison authorities said two organizations — the Friends of America and Halfway House- sought to assist Hightower in returning to civilian life in Los Angeles. Hightower, dressed in a brown suit and grey sports shirt, appeared healthier and stronger than the average man his age. Born Sept. 28, 1878, in Groves, Tex., Hightower lived there until 1894, when he began his world travels. Eventually he made his way to Colma, Calif., near San Francisco, and a rendezvous with fate. Requested Priest Authorities jsaid. that Hightower walked into Holy Angels Roman Catholic Church in Colma and told the - Rev. -Patrick E. Heslin that a priest was needed to give the last rites to a dying man. Father Heslin went with Hightower and was never seen alive again. Hightower, apparently trying to collect a reward, brought about his own arrest when he told a local newspaperman the priest's grave probably could 1 be found at Salada Beach, now Sharp Park in Pacifica. The body was located and a jury convicted Hightower. Twenty-six times since ,his 1921 conviction, state parole officers rejected Hightower's bid for freedom, finally granting his request last March 29.

CAPE KENNEDY (UPI)— A record breaking spaceflight that will send Gemini astronauts James McDevitt and Edward White whirling around earth 62 times in four days has been scheduled for June 3, the federal space agency announced to- James McDevitt physical effects nauts. day. The mission, most ambitious 'yet attempted by the United iStates, will more than triple the 'total space time accumulated by all six Mercury astronauts and Gemini pioneers Virgil Grissom and John Young. The Gemini-4 capsule will fly longer, 97 hours and 50 minutes, and higher, 185 miles, than any previous U.S. manned spaceship and! one of its pilots may become the first American to partially venture into the void of space. : Main goal of the flight is to prove that the 7,000 pound ship is capable of long duration flights and to see if astronauts are affected by prolonged exposure to the mysteries of weightlessness in space; ; Flight Plan The flight plan calls for the Gemini-4 to use small steering rockets to make nine orbital maneuvers—up, down, forward, backward and sideways. P e r- fection of such techniques is necessary for later attempts to rendezvous with other craft in space. . Prior to today's announcement, the space agency had said! the shot was officially scheduled for some time after July 1. Informed sources, however, have reported for some time that the shot was scheduled for the first week of June. If the June 3 launch date is met, it will mean only a 2%month interval between the first and second manned Gemini missions—a pace that earlier this year only the most optimistic project officials hoped could be attained. The flight will approach, but not match, the space endurance record set by Russia's Valery Bykovsky on a five-day, 81 orbit flight in June 1963, in the Vostok-5 ship. Gemini-4. will set a new mark for two-m a n flights. If the upcoming McDevitt- White mission is successful, the United States will challenge the Soviet duration record with a seven-day shot in August. The flight will be made by L. Gordon Cooper, holder of the U.S. 34-hour record set two years ago in a Mercury capsule, and copilot Charles (Pete) Conrad. Weightless Tests Of the 11 experiments planned for Gemini-4, three are specifically designed to see if four days of weightlessness will have any INSTALLATION If you an a customer of ours, your new quick-recovery, flameless electric water heater can be installed free in your present home, for complete us or ask your plumber or dealer. PUBLIC SERVICE INDIANA on capsule the astro- One of the tests will deter- if zero gravity for four result in a loss of cal- mine .days cium from the pilots' bones. Another experiment will look for. possible deterioration of heart muscles, and a third will assess the astronauts' ability to do physical work in space. There also will be four engineering experiments, two scientific experiments and two defense department tests. The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) said the possibility of having White open one of the capsule's two hatches and' leaning halfway into space is still under consideration. The decision to proceed with the so-called extravehicular experiment depends on the outcome of spacesuit and hatch tests now underway and could be made as late as one day-before launch. No Spacewalk The United -States will not at-, tempt to match the "spacewalk" made by Russia's 'Alekei 'Leor nov last .March until the next Gemini flight at the earliest. Leonov crawled out -of, his Voskhod-2 craft and floated in space for about 20 minutes. McDevitt, the 35-year-old Gemini-4 command pilot, and White, 34, will have enough food along in their capsule for four 2,500- calorie meals a day. The menus, varied for each pilot, contain 49 different items ranging from peanut cubes to shrimp cocktail. The entire mission will be for the first time from NASA's new Gemini nerve center in Houston, Tex. The Cape Kennedy mission control- c e n t eT used for the Grissom-Y p u n g Gemini debut March 23 will now serve as a full-time ''back-up" to Houston. Ctef Up!
