It was launched unmanned earlier this month and apparently encountered trouble before its crew was launched. Sltylab, much bigger than the Salyut, also will be launched unmanned.

(UPI) — Edmund E. Kemper III, who killed his grandparents nine years ago and reportedly has admitted nine recent slayings, was extradited to California Wednesday. Three policemen were driving Kemper from Pueblo, Colo., to Santa Cruz in his getaway car . Kemper, 24, a 6-foot-9, 240- pounder who was convicted of lulling his grandparents in a fit of rage nine years ago, waived extradition proceedings. Santa Cruz County District Attorney Peter Chang requested extradition on charges Kemper killed his mother, Mrs. Clarenell Strandberg, 52, and her friend, Sara Taylor Hallett, 59, at Mrs. Strandberg's apartment in Aptos last weekend. The nude bodies of the two women were found, police said, after Kemper confessed he beat them to death with a hammer. His mother's head and one hand had been cut off. Detectives who questioned Kemper in Pueblo said he "definitely" had ties to the killings of six college coeds who disappeared while hitchhiking in the Santa Cruz area during the past year. Portions of five of the girls' bodies have been found. Three of the slain coeds were decapitated and one girl's body was dismembered and tossed in the Pacific, washing up in pieces along a beach. Police said that Kemper confessed to eight killings in a telephone call Tuesday. He was arrested while making the call in a phone booth at Pueblo. Berkeley, Calif., police also said Kemper has claimed responsibility for the death of Aiko Koo, 15, who disappeared Sept. 14 on her way to a ballet class. Kemper appeared before District Court Judge Jack F. Feaby Wednesday wearing a gray shirt and baggy blue jeans. He turned down the offer of a court-appointed lawyer and voluntarily signed six sets of papers allowing his extradition to California. Eighteen persons have been killed in the Santa Cruz area since the start of the year. Herbert W. Mullin, 25, Felton, Calif., has been charged with 10 of the slayings. Railway unions warned thejr Would halt all services in Tokyo starting on Friday unless Prime Minister Kakuel Tanaka agreed to meet union officials for talks to resolve the so-called spring labor struggle." So far, Tanaka has refused to do so. Private railway company workers also planned to go on strike startUig Friday. Both public and private railway workers are seeking pay increases averaging |81 monthly. Employers have offered about one-half that amount. In addition, public service workers are seeking the right to strike, denied them by the late Gen. Douglas MacArthur during the early part of the postwar Allied occupation of Japan. Say Action Outdated They said MacArthur's action, taken in 1947 on the eve of a scheduled mass strike, is outdated and that they, like any Other workers in private companies, should enjoy the right to strike. So far, the government has refused to grant this right. The Supreme Court ruled Wednesday, in a separate but related case, that public service employes are liable for prose* cution if they strike. Railway officials said the Tuesday riothig caused millions of dollars damage at 38 different stations in and around Tokyo. Union officials said the rioting was Inspired by right* wingers, but police said they found no such evidence. More than 130 persons were arrested. Police said all of them were ordinary commuters who re* sorted to violence because they were stranded for hours. •1 ALOTOF home improvements, new cars, appliances, boats begin with our Installment Loan Department.
