Gordon Cooper and Charles Conrad huddled in seclusion at America's moon- port today to relive for history the high points of their record eight days in space.

The 120-orbit voyage pushed the United states ahead of Russia in manned space exploration and proved that man can withstand the rigors of space long enough to fly to the moon and back as early as 1969. . More Checks Today's schedule for Cooper and Conrad picked up where it left off Monday— more physical checks and more of the technical "debriefings" scientists needed to gain every bit of information possible out of the ortbital endurance mission. Cooper and Conrad, talking into tape recorders, Monday discussed in detail the flawless countdown Aug. 21, the launch ^nd the climb into a near-perfect orbit. Today's orogram went on from there.

SAN FRANCISCO (OPI) — Married men in the 19-to-26 age bracket without children probably will face draft calls early next year, according to Selective Service Director Lewis B. Hershey. He told a news conference Monday that draft boards also will tighten i-.p on deferments for students, conscientious objectors, medical exemptions and married men who neglect their families. Hershey said the boards will be instructed to "take a good Washed Cat ARCADIA, Calif. (UPI)— When Mrs. J. F. Sargent heard her year-old Persian cat, Scamper, meowing above the roar of her washing machine the other day, she began a frantic search in and under the house. Eight minutes, three rinses and part of a spin dry cycle later, Mrs. Sargent removed a dizzy and limp Scamper from her front-loading wash- look at the fellow who marries some girl and forgets to stay around and provide a home — we're interested in him." President Johnson, on Hershey's advice, ordered draft boards to treat any man married after last Friday the same as single men — and Hershey added that those who rushed into wedlock late Friday to beat the draft "will discover they didn't beat anything." The general said that as soon as the pool of available single 19-to-26-year-clds is exhausted, the Selective Service will begin calling up married men in the same age bracket without children. He said this could be anytime after next January. Hershey warned students that they will have to work at their schooling if they want to be deferred. He said that if students are called up, the first will be those whose grades are not up to par, those who are not carrying a full load of studies, "and the fellows who get kicked out of school one year and go back the next." He said he was ir. favor of drafting what he called the "political pacifists" who seek conscientious objector status. Contrasting them with "religious" pacifists, Hershey said "they shouldn't be prosecuted, they should be i:iJucted." Hershey said he could not foresee an end to the draft, even if the viet Nam war is resolved because "we must stay strong—apparently strong." He added that the U.S. is so rich, he doubts "a time will ever come that we will have enough peoole in the military on a purely voluntary basis." Hospita ADMITTED: Jeffrey Cruser, R.
