Mdf. STmom Comes Down In Dakota Flax Field— Balloonist Lands Safely; Next Step May be 4 or 5 Men in Sy^LL CHEVALIER FA«|p ,m D. (*>-Now that the Air|&lsjl%as sent a balloonist 19 miles into the atmosphere the next step may be a four or five man gondola to that height. Col. John Stapp, boss of the one-man project, said Tuesday he would make the suggestion to the service. Stapp spoke after Maj. David G. Simons brought his huge plastic bag to earth in a flax field on the border between North and South Dakota. Over 19 Miles Up Simons' long ride took him to altitudes over 100.000 feet—19 miles — in the sky. Stapp—of rocket sled fame — said the flight proved it is safe for man to fly to outer space. Upon landing, Simons cut loose the gondola and the balloon billowed up, again to an altitude of about 1,500 feet. It landed three miles to the west, where souvenir hunters later tore it to pieces. Radar trackers estimated the 1 -2 i , balloon carried Simons to a record-breaking 102,000 foot level. If confirmed by later calibration of instruments in the balloon, this would be 6,000 feet higher than Capt. Joseph Kittinger rose in June while testing equipment Simons used. Information gained, he said, will push forward future manned missile flights. Flown to the Air Force's makeshift *headquarters at the airport here, Simons grabbed a pair of m f\ Timet Herald, Carroll, lows | \J Wednesday, Aug. 21, 1957 electric shavers, his tooth brush and a bar of soap and restored a little of the comfort he had missed since entering his tiny gondola Sunday night. He was then flown to' Minneapolis for a long sleep. Calls Wife Munching a hamburger, Simons, a native of Lancaster, Pa., called 'his wife at their home at Hollo- man Air Force Base, Alamogordo, N.M., where he is chief "of space biology. Suspended in a tiny aluminum capsule beneath the block-long balloon as it was launched from a huge, open pit iron mine at Crosby, Minn., Monday morning, Simons floated lazily upward. He hovered over central Minnesota during the day before moving over South and North Dakota. Ground and helicopter tracking crews watched JSimons drift-over! thunderheads, then ordered him to' stay up two hours longer than planned to find clear skies to descend. He dropped through a bank of clouds and, loosing ballast from the gondola, settled gently to. the edge of a smalljake hear Ellendale, N.D., about 120 miles southwest of Fargo.

W-The long arm of the law has finally curled around Jo-Jo, a 6-foot boa constrictor who has been run out of two towns in less than a week. The 6-year-old reptile was sentenced Tuesday to a lifetime stretch at the nearby Watchung Nature Museum. Jo-Jo first came ttf^public notice last week, when the board of health in Clifton ordered his owner, Abraham Kievit, to remove the animal from his home and get it out of town. Kievit, who had raised Jo-Jo from infancy, reluctantly turned him over to 17-year-old Ronald Piper of South Orange. Piper, who hopes to make rep­ tiles'his life's work, enjoyed caring for his pet and feeding him live -rats. He literally became attached to the animal, wrapping him around his neck at times to show his affectidn. But the happy idyll ended when police told Piper that Jo-Jo had to go-go. The youth pleaded that it would be nine years before the snake would be strong enough to crush a man, but the law was adamant. WINS TOP HONORS (Times Herald New.

Jerry Jay Fielding, son of Mr. and Mrs. LaVern Fielding of Scranton, has been promoted to first lieutenant at Luke Air Force Base near Phoenix, Arizona. A recent honor graduate as a Jet pilot, Lt.

He was active In the DcMolay chapter at Carroll. MINNEAPOLIS W> — eommunistj oppression may force the Lutheran | Church to change its structures to survive in countries behind the Iron Curtain, an East German bishop said Wednesday. This change, he said, could be from the semi-state church form common in Germany to "new forms of free and active congregations ready to witness and if need be to battle." In an address prepared for the Lutheran World Federation's third assembly, Bishop Friedrich Wilhelm Krummacher of PomeraniaJ insisted "we are never fighting j for a lost cause even if. our pres- j ent forms should have to be dis- j continued." j But, he explained: j "We who live in countries ruled \ by communism and are aware of» the radical changes in our social 1 conditions, have the duty as well as the freedom soberly to examine the question whether or not the' traditional parochial system of the' folk-church should be superseded by new forms." His talk was one of the frankest outlines of Christianity's dilemma behind the Iron Curtain yet presented at the assembly. "Pain, suffering and persecution are some of the means by which the Lord units His church," the bishop said. "The church will experience anew that seasons of tribulation, oppression and even bloody persecution may be especially blessed and profitable." He referred to "heavily decimated Evangelical congregations east of the Oder River" and a "fellowship of suffering and pain" in East Germany. A persecuted church, he said, at all costs must avoid "three forums of hopelessness." He listed these as defeatism, compromise "for the 1 sake of a foul peace," and purely negative political resistance. He suggested that hope in the eventual triumph of Christianity can be the salvation of churches which are under powerful Communist pressure. With this he coupled love and sharing. "In many cases," he said, "in a filthy prison cell, or behind them barbed wire of a concentration camp, for instance, when a man shares his last crust of dry bread with a hungry fellow prisoner instead of eating it himself— a simple act of love is much more .effective than many fine words." HUGE BED , The Great Bed of Ware, mentioned in Shakespeare's writings, was built in the village of Ware, England, and was said to have held 24 persons comfortably. 2 Girls Are Found Dead In Old Icebox MIDLAND, Tex. lift—Two young girls were found dead in an abandoned icebox here Tuesday night, hours after they disappeared while playing. The victims were Marie Griss- more, 4, and Rose Mary Edwards, 3. The bodies were found huddled j side-by-side in the old icebox, a type which locks from the outside. Mrs. Josie Edwards told police she and the neighbors started a search for the girls after she discovered they were missing arid later called in police. Before a squad car arrived, a neighbor opened the icebox outside the I Edwards' home and found them. doctor, like himself, he saw some "very * awesome and splendid sights." Awesome, he said, was the view of lightning flashing through thunderheads thousands of feet below him. The most "splendid sight I ever saw in my life," Simmons said, "was the sunrise breaking over the horizon in a fantastic array of color." The sun rose at 4:45 a.m. where he flew, but didn't cast a ray on the earth below fiim until 6:30 a.m. Simons, who flew higher than any man ever attempted in a bal- loon ahd' stayed there longer, said "the most exciting part of the Whole trip, without a doubt, was landing." He was over 90,000 feet for 26, hours. . v He described the takeoff "like going up in an elevator," and said heMvas too busy with his maze of instruments to get lonely. The sky during" the daytime, he said, was purple-black. At night, the stars shone steadily, with not a twinkle. Simons lived on sandwiches, candy, fruit juice and water during the lc-ng flight.
