Wednesday, March 2, 1966 Wedn«.d«y. March 2. 1966 - JOHX THOMPSON placed second in the junior hlgfc biological science competition &t the annual Baytown Science Fair trith his project. "Oceanic Suburbia, 2500 A-D." {Baytown Sun Photo by Charles Micke!) Scott To Become A Space Mechanic ORLANDO. Fla. (AP)—When astronaut David R. Scott leaves the Gemini 8 capsule for a stroli in space in mid-March, he will use a power tool that may qualify him as the first space mechanic. Scott, an Air Force major, will work with the device for only about 10 minutes of his planned 2% hour excursion. But the nuts and bolts experiment will help develop tool kits for future astronauts. Details of the experiment were disclosed today at a conference on space maintenance and extravehicular activity — space walks. Scott and civilian Neil A. Armstrong are to ride Gemini 8 up for a three-day trip on March 15. During the first day. they are to chase and link up with an orbiting Agena satellite. Scott is to take his record space walk on the second day. Shortly after- leaving the cap-i sule more than 100 miles above' the earth, Scott — at the end of! a 25-foot tether - • will work his way along the side of the space-j craft with the help of handrails. He will open a compartment, in which is stored the power tool, with a regular hand •wrench and a metal plate fastened with four bolts. The power tool superficially resembles the but like Scott, will be weightless in space. It is 10^. inches long and 9 inches high and is powered by batteries. A man using a normal wrench in weightless space would spin like a top because of the reverse action created from force exerted in twisting on a bolt. The power tool, designed by the Martin Co. for the Air Force Aeropropulsion Laboratory, has 99.5 per cent less reactive force than a comparable power wrench used on earth. This has been done through an arrangement of bearings, rings and gears, plus a counter-rotating barrel. The result is thai the reaction is transferred back to the bolt being tightened rather than to the astronaut. Before open! ng the compartment. Scott will use a hook-like device to attach his right knee :o a spacecraft hand rail. Then will use the power tool to loosen the four bolts in the metal plate. He will turn the plate over and tighten the bolts, one of which is instrumented to record! the amount of force used. He will repeat the exercise, using the regular wrench. Then he will do it again after releasing his knee from the fastened position. Without the " knee^ anchored. electrically operated devices j Scott should spin slightly while that mechanics use to remove using the regular tool. If so, he lugs when changing an automobile tire. But inside it has the complexity of a James Bond device. It weighs about eight pounds will stop before he becomes disoriented. To record his actions, Scott will mount a movie camera on the side of the spacecraft. Americans Dislike War But Pleased By Prosperity WASHINGTON {AP )_ Lt., criticism from individuals Gen. Lewis B.

(AP) Six paintings of nudes have , been removed from where they hardly would be expected in the first place — the business offices of Stanford University.

His Army career appeared at an end when he was retired after removal of Ms right eye, injured while playing polo.

Louis Lemon Of Crosby Is Congress Candidate Louis Leman of Crosby is the Republican candidate for con- ;ressman from the Eighth District, the seat of the Late Rep. Albert Thomas of Houston. Mrs. Albert Thomas is running or her husband's seat and, if elected, would fill out the congressman's unexpired term, which would have expired in January of 3967. A special election has been called for March 26 to fill the vacancy caused by Thomas' death. State Rep. Bob Eckhardt and Larry McKaskle of Houston are Democratic candidates for Thomas' congressional seat in the May 7 Democratic Primary. This will be for a regular term. The Democratic nominee will run in the November election. A mechanical engineer em - ployed by Southwest Oil Field Products, Inc., in Houston. Leman said he is taking a. leave of absence from his company. He was Republican Precinct 251 chairman and a delegate to the state Republican Convention. "I intend to present current critical issues during my campaign and also offer my solutions to them," the candidate said. { Leman attended Houston schools, graduating from the St. Thomas High School and then the University of Texas. A primary target in his platform is the U.S. action in Viet Nam. His six - point statement on the subject includes suggestions such as the halting of aombing targets in South Viet Nam and the concentration of bombings on Nort Viet Nam supply targets only. It also includes: Recognition of the 1953 Constitution of South Viet Nam; refusal to negotiate on the basis of the 1954 Geneva agreement; and the return of the response bility for the war effort to the South Vietnamese as rapidly as possible with gradual withdrawal of American troops. He said, "If President Johnson fails to seek successful avenues to peace, the Congress should urge an immediate .military conclusion to the war based on closing the Port of Hanoi to the shipping of England, Russia, Greece. France, and other nations. We should avoid the temptation of a war for prosperity. We should place more responsibility for the war effort in the hands of the U.S. Military in South Viet Nam. We can accept no substitute for victory." Cancer Victims To Trade Flesh In Attempt At Life BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) —! Robert F. Allen and the "right man" planned to meet this week for a rare operation which might sav e both from dying of cancer. Allen, 28, a Tucson, Ariz,, businessman, and an unidentified 65-year-old man from Philadelphia, are strangers to each other, but they have in common a rare type of bone cancer, osteogenic sarcoma. Both also have the same blood type, O-positive, the key to the operation to be performed by doctors at Rosweli Park Memo- irial Institute. Doctors gave Allen, father of work, but I am willing to give it a try," he said, "Any chance is better than no chance. I am very optimistic. I can't be anything else/' he said, adding "I am very happy and grateful all the people who have responded to this.'* Pre-School Deaf Being Sought By School District The Special Education Department of the Baytown school sys- three and a former University j tem is ^.- {o locate all jofUHnois football player, two to i school dea{ chi!drcn who may six months to live.
