Glenn Learns How to Shoot Native Arms By ALVtN B. Wm JR. CAPE CANAVERAL (UP!) Strange days on the doorsteps to apace... John Glenn, America's first orbiting astronaut, has learned how to use a native' blowgun. Me added this somewhat obscure talent to his versatile repertoire during a recent survival course in Panama. With nowhere to go in space for another IS months or so, Glenn and hss IS fellow Mercury* Gemini astronatus have spent the past few weeks learning how to get along in earth's jungles and deserts — just in case they should accidentally land there. constrictor, then survival train* tag can be fun. An instructor's favorite trick during dull periods of the astronauts' sojourns into the wilds is to stuff the snake into a candidate's overnight pack. ine boi constrrc-tor is relatively harmless, even if the victimized astronaut thinks otherwise when first coming face to fang with the fearsome-looking beast in the sleepy hours of the morning. Closer to civilization, astronauts prove to be just as human as the rest of us. Spaceman Virgil I. (Gus) Grissom's contribution to this little If happiness is a 12-foot boa homily has been the collection of speeding tickets. Ita tMrrrfnutivi astronaut was nabbed recently for allegedly doing 78 miles per hour in his sports ear on a Florida road. Grissom came similarly at variance with the state's speed laws last November — at a cost of $20. For the record, Grissom tooled along at 5,280 miles per hour on his sub*orbital flight through speed-lawless space on July 21, ML $ DAYS $ WOMEN'S AND CHILDREN'S SHOES $ 1.95 $2.95 — $3.95 — $4.95 ODDS AND ENDS — $1.00 HANDBAGS Geniue Leather Values to $10 tm QO $195 While They Last * | and * | ONE LOT MEN'S and BOYS' SHOES— $ 3,95* and . .95 Suitable for Dress — School — Work TED GROTHE SHOES 140 EAST MAIN STREET Lt. Col. John A. (Shorty) Powers was silenced as the "voice of the astronauts," NASA officials said, in an over-al' realignment of personnel at the close of Project Mercury. The real reason, according to informed sources, was that Pow ers stepped on numerous NASA toes — from administrator James E. Webb on down — when he went on a lecture-for-pay tour for a publications firm that was negotiating to "buy" the personal stories of the astronauts. The selection of former Wash ington newsman Paul Haney to replace Powers appeared to please most "space beat" reporters who preferred a man with news-handling experience in a news-handling job. Not Taken Far ' HOPKINSVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Glen Hayes was upset when a burglar stole a shotgun, jewelry and electric shaver from his home in Christian County.
