Before 1961 is over the Soviets may give the United States nd- tional cause to frel a sense of angry frustration.

Ship Called Back About 9:30 a.m., Western correspondents were tipped off to be listening to their radios at 10 a.m. The announcement came at j times. Then the radio broke into | music, with songs glorifying Soviet space achievements. The pilot's report that he was well blared over loudspeakers in the Soviet capital, which was blanketed with a heavy April 10 a.m., saying the astronaut still snow f a u_ was in orbit. At two Intervals the Muscov j tes clustered around the radio broadcast messages, reportedly from him over South America and Africa. Then came the announcement that the spaceship had been called back to earth. Some in the Western colony expressed wonderment that the Soviet Union, with Its tight control over communications, would take such a chance—announcing the flight before a successful completion. As these skeptics saw it, the event would have turned Into perhaps the most publicized disaster in history if anything had gone wrong between 10 a.m. and the announced tini minutes later. Was Worker Correct? That led them back to speculation whether the London Daily Worker knew what it was talking radios to listen to news of the historic achievement. Moscow radio and all other Soviet propaganda organs went into a demonstration of patriotism for the Soviet Union and the Communist system. And in Washington, President Kennedy issued a statement congratulating the Soviet Union on "an oustanding technical achievement." James E. Webb, chief of the U.S. space agency, called it a splendid achievement and expressed hope the Russians will share their findings with the world. The United States is planning to shoot a man 300 miles through space in May—but will not try to place him into orbit. The U.S. orbit try may come later this year.

Soviet officials were not commenting tonight on the various loose ends connected with the story. There still was no disclosure on where the rocket was fired or where Gagarin landed. A scientific writer for the Soviet news agency Tass said the ship was slowed by reverse blasts and then settled to earth by parachute. The astronaut's picture was flashed on Moscow television In an address Tuesday night Kerner urged the Illinois Retail Merchants Association to buck his proposal to revise the article and thus broaden the sales U;x base.j 'ISvo weeks ago Kerner asked tht> General Assembly to rewrite the article to place broad taxing powers in the hands of state lawmakers. Opponents to his proposal claim it would lead to a state income tax. "Running Illinois on this 1870 creation (the revenue article)," Kerner told the retailers, "is akin to your doing business according to the merchandising methods ol 90 years ago." Kerner called Illinois the "second richest state in the union." But, he said, many residents in above-average economic circumstances "frequently are outride the area of the sates tax." 1,000 Attend Career Night Program at Alton High The teaching field, office work, nursing and airline hostesses were the most popular sections of the eighth annual Careers Night at Alton High School, Tuesday. Upwards of 1,000 people attended the sessions which started with an assembly in the auditorium and then broke into units where experts in 54 fields spoke to students and parents. The combined teaching field attracted 110 students, the airline hostess drew 60 students, and the secretary and stenography session attracted some SO young people, and nursing drew near 60. At the assembly, Fllw Young have teen freely predicting it in recent months, especially after last month's twin launchings of .satellites. The flights of the two March satellites, as described by the Russians, were similar to Gagarin's spaceship in orbit time and weight. Within the past few days Moscow has been flooded with rumors of a man in space. Gagarin, rocketed from a position as an obscure army officer to a national hero in a matter of hours, was heading for Moscow aboard a jet plane. Soviet scientists watched Ua- garin during his flight by television and he was in constant radio communication with a control station, t hi- Soviets said- a student, lauded the students forj Messa g es from h im that he wu» their interest in looking ahead to a career.
