Alton Evening Telegraph Monday, January 11,1971 Neighbors in the Milky Way Bright cores of f\vo massive, bill previously mule- •Icctwl galaxies shine dimly through veil of obscuring interstellar dust in this new photograph made at Ml. Palomar, Calif, observatory. They're called "Mallei I" and "Malfei 2" for Paolo Mallei, Italian astronomer who reported them two years ago as strange "objects." Astromers believe the entire galaxies, if seen clearly, would extend across the picture and probably overlap each other. (AP Wire- photo) Launch set for Jan. 31 Astronauts begin three week O of medical isolation CAPE KENNEDY, Fla. (AP) — The Apollo 14 astronauts today began a 21- day period of preflight medical isolation to minimize exposure to disease or illness such as the measles contact which forced a late substitution in the Apollo 13 crew last year. Astronauts Alan B. Shepard Jr., Stuart A. Roosa and Edgar D. Mitchell and their backup crew generally will be restricted to three areas of the Kennedy Space Center. These arc the crew living quarters, the training building and tile launch pad. They also will make one or two trips to nearby Patrick Air Force Base for practice flying in jet airplanes. Movements from one point to another will be watched carefully so the astronauts do not contact unauthorized personnel. The Apollo 14 launching is scheduled Jan. Ill with Shepard and Mitchell to attempt a landing in the moon's Fra Mauro Highlands to Page's job with HEW held up SPRINGFIELD, 111. (AP) Sen. Adlaj E. Stevenson III, D-I11., said Sunday that the appointment of Ray Page as regional administrator in the Department of Health, Education and Welfare (HEW) is being held up by the Nixon administration. Speaking at a news con- f e r e n c e following a Democratic victory dinner, Stevenson said he had been told thai investigators from the FBI and HIM are court u c t i n g a "more than routine" probe of Page's credentials. Page, a Republican, was defeated Nov. 3 in his bid for a third term as Illinois state superintendent of public instruction. He had been criticized for some financial practices of bis office. Page's appointment would not require Senate con- Appointment would jB§4e by EUiott Richard- search for ancient lunar soil. Last April all three Apollo 13 astronauts were exposed to German measles a few days before launch. .James A. Lovell Jr. and Fred W. liaise Jr. wore.found to bo inmune, but Thomas K. Mattingly was not. and he was replaced hours before the launch by backup command module pilot. John L. Swigert. The isolation that went into effect today was the result. During (he 21 days, only 112 persons will be authorized to work directly with the astronauts, compared with about HUO on earlier Apollo flights. Mosl of the 112 will have only minimal association with the crew, some none at all unless necessary. These prime contacts all have provided detailed medical histories, submitted to extensive physical exams and have been immuni/ed against 10 common diseases, as have the astronauts. S c h o o 1 officials and physicians in the Cape Kennedy area have been given a list, of the 112 persons and their families to help detect any potential disease carrier. The wives of the astronauts will be allowed to visit, if not ill, but their children will be prohibited from direct access because of the prevalence of childhood diseases in schools. The children will be able to talk with their fathers through a glass partition as the spacemen sit in a newly built isolation booth. This booth, equipped with an intercom system, also will be used for discussions with lunar scientists and others apart from the 112 primary contracts. More than $100,000 has been spent to place new air filtration units in the living quarters and in the training building, where tho astronauts rehearse in spacecraft simulators. The filters' are the type used in operating rooms and other critical areas in hospitals. Apollo Mission Director Chester M. Lee said: "We are going to have a medical officer on duty 24 hours, not only for the crew, but also for any of the primary contacts who feel .they may have been exposed to anything that might transmit to the crew," Findley hacks USDA regulations Telegraph's MrdHI Service WASHINGTON — Rep. Paul Findlpy (IM1I.) urged support for new I'SDA rennirrmonts regulating; wh;il non- production hind cnn qu.'ilify for government subsidies. The nexv rryuhitions ;ire part of the "sot-aside" program, which pn\s farmers for planting land in non- cultivable crops such as grass, alfalfa, and hay. The, purpose is to retire a port ion of the nation's agricultural p r od u c1 i v i I y , and thus maintain crop prices, while ALTON providing a conserving base for the soil. The new re.L'ulalions specify lhal in order to qualify for government payments, land must have produced a harvested crop in one of the last three years. An exception is included for farms facing economic hardship from weather conditions or crop disease. Such farms may count land planted with I he intention of harvesting, whether or not the crop was harvested. Findley said the program of ^J government payments has gotten a bad name because some fanners have collected payments on, land consisting of gravel pits, creek bottoms, swamps or steep rocky hillsides that have never produced a crop. "Most farmers understand fully the need to retire a portion of our nation's agricultural productivity as justification for government payments and resent the action of the exceptionally few farmers in idling totally unproductive land,'' the Congressman said. Findley said those who had abused the land retirement programs of the' past were placing Agriculture Secretary Clifford Hardin under heavy pressure to rescind the new regulations. • TOM-BOY YOUR HEADQUARTERS FOR Flavor-pins MEATS CHECK 07JR AD FOR BIG Telegraph Want Ads get results! Lee said the isolation won't inhibit the ability of the astronauts to move around. "For example, if they want to move from their crew quarters to the handball court on the third floor for exercise, the hallways through which they walk will be cleared," he said. "A bell or a horn will sound, and the halls will be emptied." During such moves, the astronauts will wear oxygen masks that will prevent them from inhaling surrounding air. To travel the block between the quarters and (raining building or I lie 30 miles to Patrick Air Force Base, the spacemen will drive their own cars, which are provided with special parking areas, roped off and manned by security guards. Dr. Charles Berry, the astronauts' chief physician, said lie is especially concerned about one of the crew members catching a cold that doesn't show up until after 1 a u n c h i n g . In weightless space, the germs spread rapidly and the symptoms are far more serious than on earth, he said. Berry said that while the system has holes in it, it's the best that, can be done to in i n i m i 'i, c exposure, considering the astronauts have to work with so many people in the final days before launch.
