This li the first by a doughty pioneer. But space beckons many riions Russian, American ami other space astronauts, to till a fertile new Held which now lies open. The world will read with Interest Maj. Yuri Gagarin's eyewitness account of what he felt, what he may have seen of the earth rolling beneath him, or perhaps stars In diamond brilliance In the blackness of space. Upon his experience depends. partly, the question how soon other men go up, and how far. Is space perhaps too hazardous— are there dangers which had not been foreseen?

But this was the first testing whether a living body could withstand the unknowns of crushing, Increased weight of rocket takeoff, and the weightlessness of floating in space. And whether life truly could be supported against the hazards of radiation and streaking meteors. To these cnjestions, Lfllka answered "yes." Some space experts think the Soviet Union had started a good two years earlier In preparing the way for man Into space, and other exploits. All give her unquestionably the advantage of tremendously powerful booster rockets to lift heavy, and roomy, satellites, t Some say the Soviet Union was quicker to realize the potential and then comment, space—of rockets the Germans in for war—and developed by World War II. Others credit the Soviets' rapid advances also to faster develop^ ment of excellent guidance sys. terns, and to concentration upon a few main goals. The first three Sputniks circled near the earth—testing the problems of near-earth space. Then, abruptly, the Soviets shot for the moon, hitting it, photographing Its backside, sending a rocket into orbit around the sun. Then, starting last year, came the launching of huge five-ton and seven-ton spacecraft around the earth. These carried dogs and other life, preparatory to man. A hitch developed, apparently, last December when a mistake caused the spacecraft to go amiss and burn up in the atmosphere. Soviet Radio Telh Story Of Spaceman LONDON (AP) - Moscow television presented a picture of the Soviet Union's first space today, describing him as a with "a good, honest smile." The portrait of Maj. Yuri Gagarin was shown came this broadcast repeated by Moscow radio: 'For those who did not see this picture we should like to give a description of this splendid man. "On the screen appears the mage of a man aged about 25-28 with a kind, Russian face, eyes set well apart, fine bushy brows and high forehead. "He wears a flying helmet, a [1ght overall suit. He smiles a good, honest smile. And is there any need to add that this man who has been the first to dare to ly to space, to reach for the stars, to look down on our earth, s a man of a very great and very real character. This is evident in his smile, in the intelligent, fine eyes.' Gagarin was 27 Just a month ago. He is married to Valentine Ga- garina, 26, who also has a scientific background. She was graduated from medical school at Oren- burg. They have two daughters, Yel- 'tia, 2, and Galya, just a month old. The cosmonaut has an ideal Soviet background: his father, loiner, his mother a housewife. Gagarin was born March 9, 1934, in the Gzhatsk district ol the Smolensk area.

His district embraces the University of Illinois Urbana campus. The commission was set up two years ago to study how state higher education may expand without needless competition between the six schools for state money. In 1959, $139 millions was appropriated to the six universities. Peters' plan would set up a 15- < man commission to develop a statewide scheme for developing the universities and to recommend budgets for each university. The plan also calls for a council on higher education. Its members could include the presidents of the University of Illinois, Southern, Northern, Western and Eastern Illinois, and Illinois Normal universities. Individual universities could add courses or research without com- i mission approval but otherwise | could not expand without first receiving commission recommendations. Miss Dawn Clark, legal aide to Gov. Otto Kerner, testified that Kerner's bill makes mandatory the commission development of a statewide master plan and its submission to the legislature. She said only the bills by Kerner and the higher education commission had mandatory requirements that the coordinating commission approve any expansion by REVOLUTIONARY!

U. S. Rocket Waits First Astronaut CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. (AP) —The Redstone rocket which the United States had hoped would boost the first man into space stands on a launching pad here. The Soviet Union beat its firing date by at least two weeks. "So close, yet so Jar," commented a technician who is help? ing groom the Redstone to send one of America's astronauts on, a short suborbital flight, hopefully late this month or early in May. "If we hadn't had those troubles last fall and on the chimp and Little Joe shots this year, we might have made it," the technician said. "But you have to give the Russian scientists credit. They've accomplished a remarkable breakthrough." Project Mercury officials had hoped to achieve a manned Redstone flight last December or January. A series of launch mishaps necessitated additional launchings to qualify the system. On Nov. 8, a space capsule failed to separate from a Little Joe rocket fired from Wallops Island, Va., in a test of the escape system. Two weeks later, a Redstone fizzled because of a faulty connection which caused the escape tower to fire, leaving the rocket and capsule on the pad. This test had to be repeated before Ham, the space chimpanzee, was sent up on a short trip Jan. 31. An engine thrust regulator stuck on the chimp shot, creating excessive thrust which lofted the chimp, Ham. higher and farther than intended. Another Redstone was fired to prove out corrections made in the regulator, again delaying the manned trip. Another setback occurred March 18 when a repeat of the Little Joe escape test fizzled. Another try is set for aboul April 20 and must succeed before the Redstone now on the pad hurls aloft an astronaut.

Rogers' answer that he had not read the city ordinance on duties of the mayor's office jdrew the reply that "that seems a very poor excuse since you are running for mayor..." This got a reprimand from Butler, who told specators to confine themselves to the questions and if they have any judgments to make, to make them at the polls."
