Labor troubles tie up moonport construction CAPE KENNEDY (UPI) More than 300 iroa workers failed to report to work today at this space center, baiting major construction on (he nation's largest moonport project and en urgent Air Force job. The iron workers' walkout complicated another labor flareup that erupted Wednesday when about 2,500 of 4,100 construction workers were turned back by picketing guards. The guards' picket lines re mained up today. Some build ing trades workers began to trickle back to work, however, but the new iron workers' dis pute brought steel work on the three biggest projects at the vast center to a standstill. "None of the iron workers showed up," said a spokesman for the American Bridge Divi sion of U.S. Steel. "We can't work without people." The iron workers were erecting steel on a huge S63 million moon rocket assembly building and on two structures at the Major breaici-hrough Five men end month locked in chamber SEATTLE (UPI)-Five men who spent a month locked in a sted chamber were being debriefed here today and scientists labeled their feat a major breakthrough in life support systems for manned space travel. Dr. E. B. Konecci, director of biotechnology and human research for the National Aeronautics and Space Admmistra- tion's office of advanced research, said work would now go on towards a six-month life [support system. The men emerged hale and hearty Wednesday from the sealed chamber at the Boeing Co. where they had spent 30 days proving that man in space huge Air Force Titan 3 project. I The Titan job was on a tight schedule to meet the first launch date for the mighty miU- tary space booster scheduled for 1965. The rocket Avill be used to hurl large manned space laboratories into orbit. can survive on water reclaimed from body wastes and oxygen generated by a system described as a major breakthrough. E. Eugene Mason, project en-| gineer for NASA's manned en^ vironmental systems assessment at the Langley Research Center, Hampton, Va., said the crew members drank water "purer than your tap water." Mason said the water reclamation system was designed to produce only the best water and the system function perfectly 60 per cent of the time, rejecting water less pure than distilled water. Mason and Konecci. were par-, ticularly pleased with the oxygen generation system which used sodium supero.xide, a chemical that absorbs carbon dioxide while generating oxygen. Crew commander Roger Barnicki. 28. Lancaster, Calif., said he felt fine "better than when I went in, because I lost some weight—about 10 pounds." Assembly expansion bill voted 7-2 SACRAMENTO (U P I) -Leg jislation to give California more I latitude in reapportioning Congressional Districts cleared the Assembly Elections and Re- I apportionment Committee Wednesday. The roll call vote was 7-2. Both no votes came from Re- pubh'cans. The bill now goes to the Constitutional Amendments Committee. Under the proposed constitutional amendment by Assemblyman Tom Bane, D-North Hollywood, the Assembly would have twice as many members as the state has members of Congress. The present Congressional total is 38 but that probably will be 140 or more after the 1970 census. The Assembly has 80 members. Tlicn, the legislature when Jt 1 reapportions Congressional dis- jtricts as it must every 10 years would be allowed to take parts of counties for Assembly Districts and two Assembly Districts for Congressional Districts. WASHINGTON fed Kennedy is a comer with drive and humility By Bruce Biossat. WASHINGTON — (NEA) —j One nippy Sunday this month. Sen. Edward M. (Ted) Kennedy ,flew out of Mineapolis at 4:45 [a.m. for Boston. The way the late President's 32-year-old brother spent that day suggests that he may soon be regarded as a phenomenon in his own right. Arriving in Boston, he promptly took a smaller plane back to western Massachusetts. There he marched in a St Patrick's Day parade in Holyoke and johied in related festivities. After that, back to Boston I again by air. "He gets on a plane like most people get on a bus," says a friend. The young senator then went I to a late church service. Nestj he took part in a special meeting on the John F. Kennedy Memorial Library, for which he labors hard. In succession thereafter came a reception for Interior Secretary Stewart Udall, honored guest at a Gov. Endicott Pea- jbody dinner; the dinner itself, with Kennedy a featured speak- |er; a fast run to suburban Ev erett, where he was a master I of ceremonies as the Friendly Knights of St Patrick handed, |out awards to his late brother's old friends and aides — Lawr- ience O'Brien, Kenneth O'Donnell, David Powers and Timothy (Ted) Beardon. On hand: 1,000 people. , Still perking, Ted Kennedy returned to Boston to the home of |Rep. Torbert Macdonald, another old Kennedy friend. With I guests who included many who had worked for Ted in his 1962 campaign, this "semireception" carried on until nearly 2 a.m. This expenditure of energy was not in any way untypical of this handsome, solidly built, restless man. Up for re-election this year, he has never ceased campaigning in Hassachusetts. He bounds around the state Redlands Daily fatts Tlwrs^ April 2, 1964 - 9 three of every four weekends. Republicans, are scouring the I woods looking for somebody to oppose him. Vincent Celeste, buried by John Kennedy in the 1SS8 election, says anybody would be crazy to take on Teddy. As his brother never did, the younger Kennedy moves constantly to keep a firm hand on the Massachusetts Democratic organization. Party leaders there are on the telephone with him in Waslungton several times a week, says one: "•He's hovering over every[ thing, all the time. He's involved in appointments, special elections, anything that comes I up." All this, Ted Keimedy manages as a kind of sidelhie. Wide testimony can be had that he is a very hardworking senator, is learning a great deal, keeps out of the limelight as few imagined would be possible when he came here a year and a half ago. ITiough he has spoken out briefly on a couple of subjects of.special interest to him or his state, he has yet to make his true "maiden speech" in the Senate. Perhaps against their instincts, many members of the \ Establishment like him for his affability, his diligence, his def* erence and humility. Smce 19S4 began, Ted has taken to the road -beyond Massachusetts for the first time to help Democratic senators and others — many up for election 1— in their home bailiwicks. His naturally wmning ways [draw crowds everywhere. Sympathy for the late President Kennedy swells interest in him mightily. Inevitably he is forging a stronger bond with senators who benefit. A weak GOP rival in Massachusetts would allow Ted the chance to stump widely for President Johnson this fall. If he does that it ought to be plain enough from this recital that LBJ won't be the only beneficiary. Just wait a few elections. General dies PARIS (UPI) - French Gen. Louis Eugene Faucher, who helped build the pre-Worid War I Czech army, died in St. Maixent Monday at the age of 69. He had been ill for some time.
