MCIS CrtMfbwt (M.) BalY News, Taesfay; Space Ticins (Conttatned from Pace One) phone call — from President Johnson, who told the proud pair "You talk to your families, and we'll see if we can't get together down at the ranch (in Texas) about Friday or Saturday." "Saving Something" The President said "I've been saving a little something for you." On board the Wasp they made up for the fact that Gemini-4 had neither shaving nor shower facilities. They sliced away four - day growths of beards and got under a hot shower. Their attire now became light blue flying suits and canvas sneakers. Their first real meal since Thursday came Monday night. It was steak and- mushrooms, peas arid carrots, baked potatoes, hot rolls and lemon pie. There was "laughter and frivolity" -- a stark contrast to the almost .tasteless "space dinners" and the tinny voices of ground controllers who kept them company along their 1.7- million mile course through space. But Gemini-4, despite its tiny size, was home for those dramatic hours, and White did not forget it. Dinner ended with his suggestion that the party visit the bell-shaped capsule, now resting in a ship's, dolly >ini barely any evidence of 4he 3 000-degree scorching it took in the 17,500-mile per hqur plunge earthward. Look Over Capsule The astronauts sniffed, punched, poked and squeezed at the craft. Then White, on impulse, reached out on his— the co-pilot's — righthand side of the cockpit and patted the capsule's top approvingly. Casimir (Chick) Stucka, operations engineer for the McDonnell Aircraft Co. that built the craft, said Gemini-4 Was in such good shape that it may be used again hi space, or in training. ' ' The astronauts and the capsule are scheduled to part company soon — the men h&pping an airplane to fly back to Houston, the machine destined for a hangar at Cape Kennedy for 2 weeks of engineering studies. \ After that, it was their first night's sleep in four days with a mattress and the comforting pull of gravity instead of a contour couch and weightlessness at then- backs. The. life of a spaceman, however, does not end with his return to earth. For White and McDivitt, the day today — and Wednesday and the next day- was scheduled to , start at dawn. They are "supposed to brief technicians, doctors, - ;, ••• .• . enlists jjmd just about anyone else whflBjwill listen, to their ,ex-> ploits :,rr- even themselves,' in what' officials call sessions of ,"self-debriefing," with a microphone and a tape recorder. Not Perfect Flight The flight of Gemini-4 will never go down as perfect, or even near-perfect. It was not expected to. It missed some objectives, such as McDivitt's fruitless chase to maneuver to within 20. feet of the Titan-2 second stage which had put them in orbit last Thursday. Debris • began to pile up inside the cabin, oxygen began pouring in-faster than expected, the flight plan was virtually rewritten hi flight, and the electronic computer conked out. This forced McDivitt and White to re-enter in the old-fashioned "hanJs off" ballistic method rather than flying it in as did Grissom and Young. But White was- sent on a fantastic, 20-muiute "space walk" outside the cabin across 6,000 miles that included the entire North American continent—an event so thrilling that White himself remembered it four days later as "boy!.. .really something!" In addition, the astronauts conducted scientific experiments so thoroughly that experts said it could take "two or three months" to have . them completely studied \and analyzed. What it "will {riiean^ ,said Manned Spacecraft Cenfer Director Robert. R. Gilrutti 'in Promotional Group Bids for Members . The membership drive for the fiscal year beginning July 1 was the main order of business at the regular Tuesday meeting of the steering committee of the Greensburg Promotional Association. •' . Robert Rust, 'chairman, pointed out the total budget has been reduced, making each member firm's dues smaller than in previous years. Rust stated that this year, for the first time, a fund was being set aside for future improvements, primarily for the Christmas lighting and decoration project. The indebtedness on the present Christmas lighting equipment has been retired, permitting further additions and improvements, he said. The membership contacts will be made by members of the Greensburg Promotional Association steering committee, following a letter to the merchants announcing the drive. Now You Know There are 23 buildings in New York City over 600 feet - tall; Chicago has the next most skyscrapers over 600 feet—three, according to the World Almanac. Houston, is data that "will really help us in designing equipment for getting to the moon."
