Aerospace Writer CAPE KENNEDY. Fla. (AP) — The United States man - iti- spacc program has received a boost with the successful flight of a Titan 2 rocket and a setback with the postponement of the first two-stage launching of the Saturn 1. U.S. officials believe the Saturn 1 is the world's most powerful booster. Meanwhile, the unmanned satellite program moved ahead with a space agency announcement today that it will attempt next Tuesday to orbit on improved Tiros 8 weather observatory capable of delivering "instant pictures" of cloud cover to more than 50 stations around the globe. The Titan 2 rumbled 5,800 miles Thursday on a military test flight and proved its basic soundness for its assignment as the booster for the two-man De- mini spacecraft. The first unmanned Gemini flight is scheduled in March, with the initial two-man orbital mission set for late next year. The National Aeronautics and Space Administration a n- nounced Thursday that the first two-stage Saturn 1 launching, which had been slated for Tuesday, had been postponed until at least late January because cracks were discovered in fittings which hold segments of pneumatic lines together in the first stages The flight already had been delayed four months because of problems associated with developing the second stage, which burns high-energy liquid hydrogen fuel. The latest delay probably will scramble the already crowded 1961 Saturn 1 schedule, which lists six launchings, including the first efforts to orbit mockup models of the Apollo man-to-the- moon ship. U.S. experts believe Saturn 1, with its 1.5-million-pound booster thrust and hydrogen upper stage, will give this nation the most powerful rocket in the world.

Devoted To Children Mrs. Oswald Eager To Cut Russian Ties By .TAMES MAXGAN Associated Press Staff Writer DALLAS (AP) — She is a somewhat bewildered young woman, remorseful over the tragic slaying of President Kennedy, but gallant In her resolve to create a future for her children in America, and bear whatever burden is her lot. That picture of Mrs. Marina Oswald emerges from interviews with persons in close contact with her since she was widowed Nov. 24. Her husband, Lee Harvey Oswald, was slain before he could be brought to trial as the accused assassin of the President. Marina, 22, a native of Russia who has been in the United States less than two years, was immediately sealed off by the Secret Service. The blonde widow appeared stunned by the collapse of her quiet life in the Dallas suburb of Irving. Now, almost thrc /eeks later, she still has noi given way to any overt emotional reaction, her advisers say. She seldom talks about her husband, but appears to feel his apparent guilt also is here. Her children are her life. She is described as completely devoted to the two girls—June, 2, and Rachel, 7 weeks. The family is living at an undisclosed location in the suburban Dallas area under a protective Secret Service guard. This week she was sent to Parkland Hospital — the hospital where both the President arid her husband died—to get a postnatal six-week checkup. She was pronounced in excellent health. She is free to go anywhere, but always is accompanied by two agents. She has paid two brief visits to her husband's grave in a Fort Worth cemetery, bringing flowers each time. She prefers to remain Indoors. She spends a lot of time sewing, altering some of the clothing donated to her and the children. She is said to be extremely eager to cast off her Russian ties, and wants to learn to read, write and speak good English. The outpouring of money and sympathy from the United States and the rest of the world has overwhelmed her. So far, she has received more than 1,000 letters, along with donations that have passed the §12,000 mark. WILL PRESIDE judge Joe B.

Mature Parents Neatness Is Not Order By Mrs. Muriel Lawrence Dear Mrs. Lawrence: You recently wrote that parents .should recognize the difference 1 vc-iween neatness and order in ' dealing with children's untidiness. Please write more about this. I was brought up to believe that neatness and order are the same thing and the idea that they are not is quite new to me . . . ANSWER: Let me put It this way. Order In us can discriminate between the Importance of things and the Importance of human feelings. Neatness can't It Is inflexibly set on the Importance of things. A neat person will experience discomfort at the litter of Sunday papers on her living room floor. She cannot ask herself, "Is my desire for a tidy living room as important as my husband's interest in the sports news and my son's delight in the comic section?" She cannot answer, "No, it isn't." She is just as disinterested in her own feelings. Though she may be suffering from a bad cold, untidiness in the bathroom will haunt her until she goes and cleans It. Things are disconnected from what people feel about them. They must be given priority regardless of what they mean to human beings. An orderly person likes things in their place, too. She likes bathroom towels hung on their racks and coats hung in their closets just as much as the neat person does. But if she feels slek with an approaching cold, she can give top priority to her sick feeling — and forget her untidy bathroom. If her child leaves n coat on the sofa instead of hanging it in the closet, order — the sense of discrimination — in her doesnt have to rush at the child with complaints of untidiness. It can wait to loam why the coat has been left on the sofa. Neatness is what psychologists call "compulsive" — a rigid tidiness we must maintain regardless of changing human circumstances. Order, on the other hand, always involves the willingness to move with changing human circumstances. It's what enables us to see the difference between cleaning a bathroom when we feel well and when we feel sick; to understand how a coat can be hung in the closet on Tuesday and left on the sofa on Wednesday. Order is a beautiful human quality because it is responsive, not to what existed yesterday but what exists today. Hospital Notes Jefferson Memorial Admitted: Peggy Smith of Wayne City.

MILKS MADRID (AP) — The Argentine government has asked Spain to extradite Juan D. Peron to face a 7&-year-old charge of seducing the janitor's teenage daughter who solaced his last two years as Argentina's dictator. Tho 68-year-old former strongman, who recently moved into a luxurious Madrid residence with the former secretary he married after his overthrow in September 1955, was not available for comment But a member of his staff said: "This Is an old matter which has been brought up from time to rime. It Is absurd." Argentine Ambassador Gen. Julio A. Lagos delivered the extradition petition to the Spanish Foreign Ministry Thursday. A ministry source said the petition would be referred first to the Justice Ministry and then to a Spanish judge for recommendations, then Generalissimo Franco's Cabinet will make the final decision. Spanish Foreign Olfce sources said there was no necessity to detain Peron in the meantime. In July 1956, the military government which took over alter Peron's overthrow charged Peron with statutory rape based on his relationship with Nelida (Nelly) Rivas. She had become his mistress in 1953, when she was 14, a few months alter the death of his politically powerful wife Evira. Peron has been living in Spain since 1960.
