Lag in U.S. Space Flights May Benefit Soviet Union By ALVtN «. WEBB .TO. CAPE CANAVERAL (UPI) the United States stands a better than even chance of having to wait another 16 months or long er before it can send more astronauts into space. This means the Soviet Union, which would hardly be expected to stand idly by amid such a golden opportunity, might have all to itself the entire year of 1964 to build an impressive and perhaps insurmountable lead in the race for man's conquest of space. And it could mean a major shakeup in America's manned space flight programs — particu larly its expensive, time-consuming and thus far fruitless Project Gemini — in the next six to twelve months. Gemini, billed as the "follow on" to the famed Project Mercury, is supposed to send two man teams of U.S. astronauts into orbits around earth for a variety of long duration flights that also would perform some key tests in linking space ships together. But Project Gemini may develop death rattles even as it is painfully born. Congress could well see to that when, next January, it starts comparing expenses with results and takes rote of the following items: Date Was Postponed —The first manned flight in Project Gemini originally was set for late 1963. That already has slipped to October, 1964, and it is an odds-on favorite to skid all the way into 1965. Since the Mercury program was axed, that would mean no U.S. manned space flights next year. — This, in turn, means the Gemini program may be running square into the rear end of the first earth orbit flight of the three-man Apollo space ships now set for late 1965. Congress may question the value of running such a little-and-late project like the Gemini alongside the Apollo pro gram that has the more important goal of landing men on the moon. —Gemini looks suspiciously like • "dead-end" program. The federal space agency, which once proposed using the ballistic capsules as shuttles to and, from manned space stations, is now looking at entirely new proposals, such as space gliders and so called "lifting bodies" for such futuristic' tasks. Cools Toward Gemini —The Air Force, and to a less er extent the Defense Department, has suddenly developed a cooling in its recent passion for a chunk of Project Gemini. —That last point could become the killer for Gemini and the pivotal point for a relignment of the nation's manned space programs. The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) has been interested for some time in divesting itself of at least a part of the Gemini program and the corresponding expense. NASA thought it had a taker early this year when it came to vague sort of agreement to let the Air Force come in as a part- tronaut a fair degree 6t control over where he would land. The Air Force has been proposing it off and on for six years or more but had trouble getting it out of the "paper project" stage. Early this year after the Air Force-NASA agreement on Project Gemini, it appeared that Dyna-Soar was dead for good and certain. Only the official word from Defense Secretary Robert S. McNamara was needed to make it so. That word never came. McNamara, who had been dead-set against the Dyna-Soar, apparently changed his mind sometime during a tour earlier this year to the Boeing Co. at Seattle, Wash., where the Dyna-Soar is being built, and then on to Gemini headquarters at Houston, Tex. McDonnell Aircraft of St. Louis, Mo., holds the Gemini contract. The defense secretary reportedly was impressed by what he saw at Boeing. He was considerably less than impressed at Houston. And the result may be that Dyna-Soar will live and Gemini —its problems, slipping schedules and millions of dollars in money already spent — is headed for the drain. OUT OUR WAY-Ry I. R. Williams TIZZY By Kate Osanii Retail Sales To Indicate U.S.Econoi ner. But eight months have passed and the Air Force-NASA agreement looks like so much more paper work. Now, informed sources say, the Air Force wants to keep it that way. There is a reason. The multitude of problems and slipping schedules engulfing Gemini present the Air Force with an opening to push its own manned space flight program, Project Dyna-Soar or X20, to a successful conclusion within three years. Off And On Situation Dyna-Soar is a winged glider vehicle which would give its as- my By SAM DAWSON NEW YORK (AP) - Retail sales will command the center of the stage the rest of this month and the first half of October. How much consumers buy, and especially what they buy, will give a strong clue to the strength of the current economic upturn. Unexpectedly high personal spending helped moderate the last recession. Revival of purchases of durable goods, particularly big ticket ones, such as household appliances, give the present upturn a new lease on life when it seemed to be faltering a year ago. Sales have withstood .the summer lull. If they show vigor with the coming of fall, merchants and dealers can count on new dollar records the rest of the year. Manufacturers can then plan production,schedules with a more helpful eye on the chances of the longest and strongest since World War II. Auto Sales Good Auto and appliance sales have been unusually strong for several months. At the moment car sales may be turning weak, while the makers are bringing out the new models. How these catch on should be apparent next month. Appliance sales have close ties with home building. Construction of housing units, especially apart ments, has been strong this year, Furnishing them has given a boost to appliance, furniture and similar sales. If this continues through the fall, the industries will be content to take the usual winter sea son of slack construction and skimpier furnishings sales in stride. But there is also a large replacement market for appliances and furnishings. This too has been seeing a modest boom. Consumers have been willing to spend, and to take on monthly payments, for new appliances or for more of them. They apparently have been confident present good times were here to stay for a time. Economists will watch this market closely. When consumers start 'tt isn't that I'm so crazy about all these people. I*m just tired of my wallpaper!"
