Stafford, Slayton American Crew for Joint Space Flight Iowa in Brief ESTHERVILLE DAILY NEWS, WED., JAN. 31, 1973 Page 3 - SPACE CENTER, Houston (AP) — The American crew of the first joint Soviet-American space flight will be commanded by veteran Thomas p. Stafford and will include Donald K. Slayton, chief of the astronaut corps. It will be the fourth space flight for Stafford, an Air Force brigadier general, and the first for Slayton, the 48-year-old chief of the space agency's flight crew operations. The third American crewman will be Vance D. Brand, 41, a civilian astronaut who has never flown in space. The space agency also announced Tuesday that the American crew and their Soviet counterparts, as yet unnamed, will have their first joint crew training session this summer in the United States. Stafford and his crew will go to the Soviet Union in the fall for more training. The joint U.S.-Soviet space flight is scheduled as a 10-day mission with launch set for July 15, 1975. The mission will begin with the launch of a So yuz spacecraft, with two men aboard, from the Soviet Union. The American Apollo spacecraft, with three men aboard, will be launched later from the United States. The Apollo spacecraft will rendezvous in earth orbit and dock with the Soyuz, using a new compatible docking system now under development. Astronauts and cosmonauts will then exchange visits aboard the two spacecraft. The selection of Stafford has Liddy, McCord Found Guilty WASHINGTON (AP) - Two top officials of President Nixon's re-election campaign were in jail today after being convicted of burglarizing and wiretapping Democratic party headquarters. A jury of eight women and two men took only 90 minutes before reporting guilty verdicts Tuesday night against G, Gordon Liddy and James W. McCord Jr. Liddy was legal counsel for the Committee for the Re-election of the President and later for its financial arm. McCord, a 20-year CIA veteran, was security chief for the Nixon campaign at the time of his arrest. Both men were ordered jailed without bond pending sentencing. been an open secret for some weeks. The 42-year-old pilot, who flew on Gemini 7 and 9 and commanded Apollo 10, has devoted much time during the last year on the study of Russian and in coordinating efforts to prepare for the joint spa­ ceflight. Stafford last year visited Star City, the Soviet space center near Moscow, and operated simulated Soyuz spacecraft. For Slayton, the selection climaxed a decade-long struggle to get into space. He was a member of the original seven- man U.S. space team, but was grounded in 1962 only a few months before his first flight because of an irregular heartbeat. He was named boss of the astronaut corps, but continued to work toward medical clearance to fly. Finally, the irregularity went away and doctors last March okayed him for space flight. Brand, 41, is an ex-Marine pilot who served as back-up command module pilot on Apollo 15. Mississippi Senator Shot By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS WASHINGTON (AP) - Sen. John C. Stennis, a power in the Senate's Southern bloc and an ardent supporter of a strong U.S. military, was in "very serious" condition today after being shot twice during a holdup in front of his home Tuesday night. A spokesman at Walter Reed Army Medical Center said at 6 a.m., EST, today that chances were "guarded" that the 71- year-old Mississippi Democrat would recover. Stennis, the chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee, was "conscious and resting comfortably" after 6V2 hours of surgery, the spokesman said. Police said the shooting oc- cured during "an ordinary street robbery." The FBI has joined the: search for two suspects. Violations SAIGON (AP) - The total number of cease-fire violations reported by the Saigon government continued to decline today despite more heavy fighting in some sections of South Vietnam. One Killed STORM LAKE, Iowa (AP) David Lee Ortner, 23, Auburn, was killed Tuesday in a car- truck crash six miles south of Lakeview on U.S. 71. Ortner's car struck the rear of a semi­ trailer truck driven by James Ulrich, Ida Grove. Fuel Boost DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) An additional 250,000 gallons of fuel oil was added to Gov. Robert Ray's emergency reserve Tuesday. The fuel from Standard Oil Co. improved the state's critically low supply of fuel oil reserves. The addition brought to nearly two million gallons the fuel oil received by the emergency reserve in response to Ray's plea to major suppliers for aid during the fuel crises. Among cities receiving fuel from the reserve are Marshalltown, Ames, Des Moines, Charles City, Dubuque, Oskaioosa and Ottumwa. Discrimination CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (AP)The Cedar Rapids school board says it will take to court the same issues found in an earlier petition filed by the Cedar Rapids Human Rights Commission. The commission's petition, which claimed the board discriminated against two women by forcing them to resign after five months pregnancy, was dismissed earlier this month in Linn County District Court. The petition for declaratory judgment asked the court to find the board's contract with the women— including the former maternity leave policy—to be legal. The board's petition asks the court to declare that the school board is not guilty of sex discrimination as claimed by the former teachers. Court Check DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) The American Friends Service Organization of Des Moines says it will monitor courts in Iowa to determine if minority groups are receiving equal treatment by. judges who set bail for defendants. Walter Chidester, project director, said Tuesday volunteers will sit in courtrooms and file data on individual cases. 'Operation Homecoming' Wait Starts Fatality OTTUMWA, Iowa (AP) - Da-V vid Miller, 20, of near Oska­ ioosa was killed Wednesday! when the car he was in ran off Iowa 23 about a mile and a half west of here. Officers said they believed Miller was the driver of the car. William Shipman, 24, also from near Oskaioosa, was seriously injured in the accident, in which both men were thrown from the car. > * CLARK AIR BASE, Philippines (AP) — They wait impatiently under the torrid sun— psychiatrists and surgeons, intelligence specialists and social workers, tailors and technicians. There have been so many new arrivals that every bed on this U.S. Air Force base in the Southwest Pacific—the largest outside the United States— has been filled. The overflow has moved into the garish hotels of Angeles City outside the gates. Also waiting are a score of jet aircraft with crews on full alert, a task force of Army, ; Navy, Air Force and Marine of' fleers manning a command post, and a nearly empty hospital. iAs they wait, their thoughts are on another group waiting 1,000 miles away—the nearly 600 American military and civilian prisoners held in the prisons of Hanoi and the jungle hideouts of the Viet Cong somewhere in South Vietnam. "By God, when will they be coming?" asked a corpsman who will help in the medical rehabilitation of the returning POWs. That same question is being asked by the officers in the "Operation Homecoming" command post. The answer is up to Hanoi. The peace agreement provides for the return of the POWs at 15-day intervals. Since Monday the task force assembled at Clark had been on partial alert. Now it is on full alert. "Hanoi could decide any hour to release them," commented an official close to the command center. "But we are picking probably Friday as the most likely time. I can't tell you why, but everything points to that day." Of concern here is the medical condition of the POWs. The fourth and fifth floors of Clark's hospital have been set aside for the POWs, and provisions have been made to use the first and third floors if necessary, virtually turning the whole installation over to the POWs. The Operation Homecoming staff at Clark has been ordered to move the POWs through to the United States as rapidly as possible after their arrival. "Those in good physical shape should be on their way within two days," one official said. "The sickest should be out of here in 10 days." Escort "buddies" are slated to play a major role in the ini­ tial rehabilitation of the men. Each buddy was given a two- week course in the United States. They will debrief each of the POWs privately and see to their every need. Assigned one to a POW, the escorts will fly to the United States with the men. "You can expect these men to still feel prisoners for two or three weeks," one officer said. "That is how it was in Korea. They just have to clear the system first." Crops Clinic Set Tuesday At Terril A Crops Clinic, sponsored by the Farmers Coop of Terril, and Milford and the Dickinson County Extension Service, will be held at the Legion Hall in Terril on Tuesday, Feb. 6. Dean Barnes, Iowa State University area crops production specialists, will discuss soybean production in regard to pop­ ulation, disease and variety.
