CAPE KENNEDY (UPD U.S. scientists today sidelined the unique rocket test of a "flying thermometer" and turned their attention to Wednesday's planned maiden flight of a Gemini space capsule. The 7,000-pound Gemini, unmanned but highly instrumented, was poised atop a two-stage Titan-2 booster for a flight to pave the way for space voyages by U.S. astronauts late this year or in early 1965. The federal space agency wants to send the capsule into a low orbit around earth to test launching techniques. The craft is an early model c£ Gemini spaceships that two-man astronauts will ride. On a launching pad several miles away, an Atlas missile with a 200-pound payload called "Fire-l" in its nose remained securely locked. An attempt to shoot the probe 5,000 miles across the Atlantic Ocean Monday was called off because of foul weather in the planned target area.

The chairman, Assemblyman Jerome Waldie, D-Antioch, reiterated that the senator did not suffer from a brain tumor no^ malignancy. .—VPUr —• Weather Rcdiands Weather Today Highest 75, Lowest 38 One Year Ago Highest 72, Lowest 45 Tomorrow's Sunrise and Sunset 5:28 a.m. — 6:15 p.m. No smog, allowable burning.

The test is designed to measure the sort of atmospheric heat that U.S. moonships would face on returns from lunar landing trips. The launching of Fire-l, which one expert called a giant "thermometer," was rescheduled for Friday. Scientists also were demanding nearly ideal weather—this time in the Cape Kennedy launching area—for the Gemini shot Camera coverage will play a vital role in determining the success of the attempt On hand to witness the firing will be the nation's entire team of 29 astronauts, officials said. The first mea to ride the Gemini craft into space will come from this group, and the pilots are expected to be announced within the next few days or weeks.

Kennedy forced the steel industry to rescind $6 a ton price increases I that bad been announced only [days earlier. Involved were pricing policies in the $3.6 billion carbon sheet steel industry.

Federal District Judge Lewis R. Morgan turned down Curfis on its claims that it had turned up new evid»ice and on a new contention that Butts was a public official. Morgan ruled that the pur ported new endence would not have changed the outcome of the case and said Butts could not possibly have been legally classed as a pubhc official whUe ser\'ing as athletic director at the University of Georgia, is president of Jones & Laugh- Im Steel; National Steel; Great Lakes Steel; Jones & Laughlin; Armco Steel; Republic Steel, and TOeeUng Steel. Three other companies were named as co-conspkators but were not indicted. They are Youngstown Sheet and Tube Co. PitUburgh Steel Co. and Granite City Steel Co.

Millions to go to polls in Wisconsin MILWAUKEE, Wis. (UPI) — A near-record one miUion voters were expected to \ote to day in the nation's second pres idential primary of the year with civil rights the central is sue. The key contest.ants were Wisconsin Gov. John Reynolds and Alabama Gov. George Wallace, a Southern segregationist whose entry into the Democrat ic race transformed a lackluster primary into what now is considered a significant referendum on civil rights. Today's turnout was expected to approach the 1960 primary record, when the late President John F. Kennedy started on the road to the White House with a victory over Sen. Hubert Humphrey, D-Minn. The weather forecast was for cloudy skies with occasional snow or flurries in the northwest and temperatures in the upper 30s and low 40s. Differ on Percentage Reynolds and V/allace differ in their opinions on what percentage of the vote the Alabama governor needs to claim a victory for the Southern voice against the civil rights bill. Reynolds freely predicts Wal lace could get 100,000 votes. He breaks the figure into 35,000 votes from the "fanatical right wing" with the rest coming from persons opposed to the bill and those personally op posed to him. Wallace has said he would claim a triumph with as few as 25,000 votes.

They said that when his nervous passengers remarked on his speed, Johnson took off his hat and covered the speedometer so they could not read it Both accounts stemmed from a drive the President took while he was spending the Easter weekend at his LBJ ranch.

It was accompanied by eight military pallbearers, two color guards and 20 honor guards from the five armed services. The body of the general, who died Sunday in Walter Reed Army Medical Center at the age of 84, is clad in a plain plain fropical worsted uniform, devoid of the many medals—including the Medal of Honor— which he won during a 61-year career as a soldier. Only the five stars of a general of the Army were pinned on his jacket The steel-gray Gl-issue casket in which MacArthur lies was open at the top with an American flag draped across the low* er portion. Many persons who came to the chapel in the rain Monday were fumed away by police. They included retired CoL Anthony Story, the pilot who flew MacArthur home from Korea in 1951 after President Traman relieved him of his command there. Wednesday morning, MacArthur's casket will be conveyed by horse-drawn caisson in a 50- minute procession to Pemisyl- vania Station on the first leg of a trip to Washington for fiirther honors.

Reuther throws party for 300 in Congress WASHINGTON (UPI) — La bor leader Walter P.

Reuther, acting as host on behalf of Uie AFL-CIO Indus trial union department, planned a civil rights theme for the reception and dmner at the Statler-Hilton Hotel. But AFL-CIO sources said there was sure to be plenty of lobbying on oUier labor-backed issues by 300 or more union of ficials who also were invited. The heavy turnout of congressmen was regarded as an election-year recognition of or ganized labor's political punch at the polls in November. Beuther's party, however, has a bipartisan flavor. The Demo craUc-leaning union group decided to honor a Republican House meml)er this year. Rep. William M. McCulloch, R-Ohio, ranking GOP member of the House Judiciary Committee, was scheduled to receive an award for his leadership in steering the civil rights bill through the House. Chafrman Emanuel Celler of the Judiciary Committee, a New York Democrat was to receive a similar award. The two mam scheduled speakers were Senate Democratic Whip Hubert H. Humphrey, Minn., floor manager of the civil rights measure, and his Republican counterpart, Sen. Thomas H. Kuchel of Cali-j fomia. Both were expected to discuss prospects for approving the legislation without substantial changes. Quote of Day DETROIT — New York Gov. Nelson A. Rockefeller commenting on Alabama Gov.

Kennedy's sister and brother-in-law Monday night but one member reportedly refused to drop his opposition to couple because Lawtoa'is an ac tor and his wife a Democrat Francis R. Masters, chairman of the board, would not make ipublic any details of the situa-| tion. . However, socialite Charles Amory, whose 16-room apartment the Lawiordf wish to buy, resorted to the City Commissioa on Human Rights to find out if the apartment board had the legal right to blackball the Law- fords because any of the tenants objected to having an actor and a Democrat in the building. Stanley E. Lowell, chairman ;of the commission, told Amory that the board apparentiy does have the right because the law says only that no one can deny thejliving quarters to a person because of "religion, cobr or national origin." The 15-story apartment building at 117 East 72nd Street is occupied by a number of prominent famUies, both Christian and Jewish. The price of apartments there runs well over $100,000.
