At/TtW EVENING MONDAY. AUGUST 19, Attribute Satellite Behavior to Gremlins - HOWARD BLACKSBURG, Va. (AP)-Are there '•gremlins in space who tamper \Mth' satellites and-then put llieittj back in working order fegata? Thai's the only explanation two Scientists -have /or the mysterious biackdut ahd sudden rejuvenation equipment on four U.S. satellites in the last yler. The; mystery was underlined this Week when, within three days, it was announced lhat two of the satellites—the ANNA geodetic sphere and the Telstar 2 communications package—had come back to life. Scie1ntists.,closely connected with each program, here for a satellite conference, were asked their opin ion of the celestial goings-on. Kestthies Flashing Richard B. Kershher of the Ap plied Physics Laboratory, John Hopkins University, which devel oped ANNA, reported that afte two months of inactivity, ANNA'; four flashing lights inexpllcablj resumed flashing. "We have no explanation for th lights coming back on," Kershne said. "We djn't like to .believe in space gremlins, but we've reachec the point where that's as good at explanation as any, They're work ing beautifully now, and we'n thankful."

Kershner said trouble with the blinking beacons on the "firefly" Satellite began about two months after it was launched last October. "The space gremlins got into the salellite and started worrying the device which causes the lights to flash," he reported. "The power and frequency of the flash es degenerated until they finally stopped altogether." Observers He said the Air Force, which had been photographing the lights against the stars to gather information aboul the shape of the earth, packed up its tracking equipment. "The lights came back on and now the Air Force is scrambling to reactivate the equipment," Kershner said. "It looks like we've got gremlins, too," remarked Doren Milchell of Bell Telephone Laboratories in commenting on last Monday's reactivation of Telstar 2. Bell built the satellite, which was launched May 7 and lost its transmitting voice July 16. "There's no indication what caused the failure, although a collision with a meteorite has not been ruled out," Mitchell said. "The meteorite might have knocked out a piece of equipment, which somehow fixed itself." Week's Business Irregular By JACK LEFLER AP Business News Writer NEW YORK (AP)—The off- igain on-again threat of a para- yzing national railroad strike ominated business developments Ms week. It appeared briefly to have lifted late Friday but later Secretary f Labor W. Willard Wirtz, lead- ng settlement attempts, declared we're by no means' home." The cliffhanger situation that las made businessmen jittery for months took a turn for the better vhen the five operating unions agreed to arbitration of the two <ey issues in the work rules dis- mte. But the agreement proved con- itional, and efforts were renewed o reduce ...the understanding to Concrete terms. Agreement Railroad management, willing to arbitrate for months, said it vould accept Writz' latest pro- x>sal. Issues to be arbitrated are fire- nen's jobs and train-crew make- ip. The arbitration -board would be made up of representatives of the arriers, the unions and two pubic members. It was expected that other is- ;ues in dispute could be ironed iut in negotiations. The deadline for the railroads o put work changes into effect .nd for the unions to strike had >een Aug. 29, The controversy centers on Seven Years Ago Sisters Healthy After Transplant of Kidney WELLSTON, Okla. (AP)—Seven years and two children ago, Edith Helm was given a kidney from her twin sisler. Today's she's a happy, healthy housewife, hoping to have another baby, even though her doctors once doubled she could have children safely. The sister who donated one of her kidneys, Wanda Foster, has three sons — and would like to have a daughter. The sisters make medical history just by living n6rmal lives. Mrs. Helm, the first woman to receive a kidney transplant, was the third human being on which the operation was tried. She goes back every two years or so to Peter Bent Brigham hospital in Boston, where surgeons who pioneered kidney transplants performed the operations which "featherbedding" — the railroads' term for what they consider unnecessary jobs. This mainly concerns the jobs of firemen on diesel locomotives. The' railroads eventually would like to get rid of 40,000 firemen and 65,000 employes altogether. The House Ways and Means Committee approved an across- the-board tax reduction but some cold water was thrown on the outlook by statements of influential senators that the legislation had a poor chance of getting through saved her lite. Mrs. Helm was 20, recently married and living In Sand Springs, near Tulsa, when doctors discovered she had glomerulrne- phritis, an incurable kidney disease. When both kidneys death follows. Mrs. Foster, also recently married, didn't hesitate when the remote chance of a kidney transplant was held out. One of Mrs. Foster's healthy kidneys was transplanted into Mrs. Helm's body May 24, .1956 Later that year, the diseased kid ncys were removed. Since then, botli sisters have been in perfect health. Mrs. Helm, recalling the expe tience for. the Tulsa Tribune, sair doctors questioned whether she would ever be able to have children safely. That question was settled Match 10, 1958, by the. birth of a son, John, in the Boston hospital. Oi Aug. 10, 1960, a daughter, Vicki arrived in a hospital in Gushing. Both were delivered by Caosare- nn section. Mrs. Foster's sons, Mike. 5, Bill, 4, and Jeff, 3, all Irav2 been born since the transplant. Mrs. Helm and her husband live on a 'small dairy farm at Wellston, not far from Oklahoma City. Mrs. Foster and her husband live in Davenport, about 20 the Senate. As approved by the House Ways and Means Committee, the tax reduction would apply to income be- inning Jan. 1, 1964. Two-thirds of the individual reductions and a ittle more than half of the corporate reduction would come on L964 income and the balance on 1965 and subsequent income. Tax Cuts The individual cut would average 20 per cent and the corporate tax would be reduced from 52 percent to 48 per cent by 1965. Chrysler Corp., which racked up an excellent gain in production and sales during the 1963 model year, kicked off 1964 by showing ts new entries in San Francisco. The firm spent $125 million in preparing its new line but the changes weren't startling. Chrys- er appeared to be betting thnt it could keep its sales gain going without radical departures from 1963 styling. Automobile production fell dur- ng the week to an estimated 18,)00 passenger cars, lowest of the year and down from 41,862 last week. General Motors completed its' 1963 model run the previous week and Ford did so during the week. Chrysler, American Motors and Studebaker already were building 1964s. Ford starts its 1964 run Monday and General Motors' 1964 production will begin Sept 3. Steel production) skidded again 'or the fourth straight week.
