THE WIZARDS OF SPACE 07) ly Don Ooklty and John (.ant (aolcsburo ftegMer-Mail, Galesburg, 111. Tuesday, July fc, 1 963,.,.?, When men finally Journey to the moon and return in the Apollo capsule near the end of the decade, after the expenditure of at least $20 billion and the concentrated effort of a large part of the nation's intellectual energy, the question for National Aeronautics and Space Administration will be: What next? There are three main possibilities, aside from Continuing to send unmanned probes around the solar system: • Building a permanent scientific space station in earth orbit. • Build* Ing a permanent moon base and exploring the moon. • Manned flights to other planets. • A space station would bring the earliest practical benefits to earth-bound men, serving, among other things, as a zero-gravity medical laboratory, weather research laboratory and distortion-free astronomical observatory. • Scientists believe a moon base could bo virtually self-supporting, manufacturing oxygen and water from rocks, growing its own food in chemical gardens. The moon would be a much better plat* form for studying the universe than an earth satellite. And as a fueling station on interplanetary flights, it could cut years off NASA's tentative schedule for Mars and Venus. • Interplanetary travel. It is hardly likely that, having reached the moon, men will stop there. Flights to the nearer planets will definitely occur before the end of the century. The old question of life on Mars win be one reason urging men to investigate that planet in person. It is possible that the nation will attempt all three of these projects, for they are interdependent in many ways. NASA has already called for industry proposals on an orbiting laboratory capable of supporting 18 men for a year. Object would be to study the effects of long stays in space before humans were sent on voyages to other planets. A station could also aid the in -orbit assembly of space ships. The third panel shows a gravitational cross section of a portion of the solar system. The sun and each planet lies in its own "gravity well," the depth depending upon its mass. Earthmen axe climbing out of their well. NEXT: Tomorrow the Universe QUOTES FROM THE DAY'S NEWS (Reg. U.S. Pat. Off.) By United Press International MIAMI — A 14-year-old refugee from Cuba who said he had played hooky in Cuba to escape Communist indoctrination in school: "I guess I'll have to start packing the books again." LOS ANGELES - George Wae- gelt, of Elk Grove, Calif., when asked by a House subcommittee on un-American activities whether he would fight for Cuba in the event of a war: "If there is another war, we're through. I don't care which side I'm on. I'm dead and so are you." JACKSON, Miss. - Circuit Judge Leon Hendrick, deploring recent Supreme .Court decisions on Bible reading: "We can't do without the Bible or God. We need all the help we can get to get along in this life." CHICAGO — Executive secretary Roy Wilkins of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, condemning "southern diehards" for allegedly holding up the administration's civil rights bill: "These people have never cared about anything except the right to kick Negroes in the teeth without federal interference."

Records at the fire department showed that only seven fire runs were made during June. Loss of property during the same period was nil. The Almanar By United Press International Today is Tuesday, July 2, the 183rd day of 1963 with 182 to follow. The moon is approaching its full phase. The morning stars are Venus, Jupiter and Saturn. The evening star is Mars. On this day in history: In 1776, the Continental Congress formally passed the Declaration of Independence, which was signed two days later. In 1881, President James Garfield was shot in the back by a disappointed office-seeker. . In 1890, Congress passed the Sherman Antitrust Act, later to be used to break up the business trusts. In 1912, on the 46th ballot, Democrats meeting in Baltimore nominated Woodrow Wilson for President. TWENTY YEARg AGO Friday, July 2, 1943 Edgar L. Harden of Charleston, was employed as principal of Galesburg Senior High School at a special meeting of the Board of Education. He succeeded A. Ed son Smith, who resigned. Susan Hayward was starring in the motion picture, "Hit Parade of 1943," featured at the Orpheum Theater. Other Editorial Opinion (Continued from page 4) Repentant Thief PHOENIX, Ariz. (AP) - The Rev. Charles E. Schmitz, pastor of the American Evangelical Lutheran Church in Phoenix, received a package in the mail containing $516 in cash and this note: "I'm sorry I stole the money. I'll know better next time. I will send another $200 as soon as possible." Schmitz said $1,528 in cash and checks were stolen from the church office several months ago. compounding of fireworks is a delicate art whose secrets are are usually passed from father to son. For example, Toshio Ogatsu of Tokyo, generally considered to be the greatest of all pyrotech- nicians, is of the 13th generation of his family to practice the art. The experts are no more inclined to reveal their fireworks' se^ crets than grandma was apt to blab about her spice cake recipe. Amateurs are further saved from themselves by laws that general ly prohibit private compounding or use of fireworks. Along with undertaking and brain surgery, the fireworks art is safe from do it-yourselfers. Thus on the Fourth we have one of those rarest of delights — a pleasure we need do nothing about except relax and enjoy it. — Herb Daniels, "The Modern Almanac" in Chicago Sunday Tribune.

Many young men and women coming out of our first-rate colleges reveal an unwillingness to be fully committed. They seem reluctant to participate actively in the world in which we are living." Simply because they spread a wider admissions net than the big eastern universities, says Dr. Alden, the colleges and state universities of the Middle West get a "greater variety of excellence" in their student bodies. At Ohio University there might be a hundred high school class valedictorians in a student body of 14,000. But, says Dr. Alden, there will also be "painters', poets, athletes, great salesmen—a really diversified student group." TO MAKE SURE that his university continues to choose from a "broad band" of excellence, Dr. Alden is charging special admission fees at Ohio University to support an admission office large enough to keep in touch with the principals of all the secondary schools in Ohio and with s«hool systems in 60 major cities of the United States. "My admissions officer, Jerry Reese," says Dr. Alden, "knows 600 school guidance officers and principals. He doesn't use mechanical scoring tests." A believer in the Peace Corps, Dr. Alden nbtes that many of the volunteers came from the small er denominational colleges of the midwest. Dr. Alden suspects there may be a correlation be tween the type of student picked by the smaller, lesser known colleges and the quality of dedi cated response required for active work under onerous conditions. He can't prove it, but it would not surprise him if the admissions requirements of the "prestige" universities actually serve to screen out the very qual ity of dedication that makes for a good Peace Corps candidate.

She put a dozen fertile eggs in a thermostatically controlled pan set at 102 degrees F., along with an egg cup of water. Three weeks later the first egg hatched, and six others followed. The chicks are healthy and behave normally. Now Mrs. Swan is trying the same experiment with turkey eggs. School Dynasty PHOENIX, Ariz. (AP)-The John K.
