By RICHARD P. POWERS WASHINGTON UP) — Jane Hart'who flies airplanes and is the wife of a senator, figures that before lohg Russian women will be orbiting the world in outer space. It worries her that the United States is hanging back. "The Russians are not doing this just for kicks," she says. "They believe women can make a contribution to the space effort." On the other hand, she complains, red tape and government regulations in the United States appear to disqualify all American women from having any part. She Campaigns Too Mrs. Hart, 41, has qualified in several fields: The wife of Michigan's junior Democratic senator, Philip A. Hart, she's an experienced political campaigner, the mother of eight children and a licensed pilot who's flown in races. She's also the daughter of a Detroit millionaire. She was Jane Briggs before her marriage. She's slender and wears her blonde hair short, pixie style. Her efforts of the past couple of years to crack the male-only astronaut field has been for qualified American women in general, although she has made it clear she would like to be a space-women herself. Took Some Tests Mrs. Hart is one of a dozen women in the country who have passed the same tough, physical tests that were given men trying out for astronaut chores. But she feels that females are excluded by pronouncements from James E .Webb, head of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration. She called "ridiculous" a statement by Webb that women would have to have jet training before qualifying as astronauts. The only place that can be had is at The Air Force jet testing school, she says, "and that is for men only." In addition to her efforts in the flying field, in which she has logged some 2,000 hours, she takes an active role in her husband's political campaigns and finds time, too, to run her busy household. This is really not a problem, she says. Her children, ranging from 5 to 15 years of age, "are all in school except the littlest one who is in kindergarten." And she's had help in caring lor the children since the third child was born. Home Weekends Even in the heat of a political campaign, Mrs. Hart has one solid requirement: "That I be home every weekend. We have to fit the politics around that." Sen. Hart will be up lor reelection in 1964 and she is already making plans to give him full aid. They work out separate campaign schedules, svith Mrs. Hart concentrating on talks and coffee hours with the women. Those social-political gatherings discuss important issues, she says. "The ladies do not go just to talk about diapers." Mrs. Hart gave up her twin- Two Chicago area men became official lecturers on Chirstian Science today. The appointment of Paul A. Erickson and Roy J. Linnig was announced by The Christian Science Board of Directors during the Church's annual meeting in Boston. Both men gave up business management positions during the years following World War II in order to devote their full time to the public practice of Christian Science healing. Mr. Erickson is a native of Aurora. He served as a chaplain's assistant at the United States Naval Academy at Annapolis during World War II, and recently became an authorized teacher of Christian Science. Mr. Linnig, who studied piano at the North Shore Conservatory of Music, became a Captain in the Coast Artillery Corps during World War II. He was born in Peru, 111., and now,, resides in Deerfield. In their new positions as lecturers, Mr." Erickson and Mr. Linnig will be called upon to present talks about Christian Science to community audiences throughout the United States and other countries.
