ALL 'EDIT H the Arizona Republic ». Astronaut bends rule for family HOUSTON (UPI) - Astronaut Alan L. Bean, spending his last weekend with his family before his flight to the moon, took his wife and daughter to Astroworld amusement park yesterday. The outing technically violated his 21-day preflight quarantine, which began Oct. 24. Beginning then, he was supposed to have had minimum contact with those outside his family to cut down on the danger of getting sick i mm e d i a t e 1 y before the launch. "It looks like Al overstepped his bounds," a spokesman at the Manned Spacecraft Center said. "But he probably won't get in any trouble for it." Cosmonaut makes horseshoe at Williamsburg WILLIAMSBURG, Va. (AP) — Cosmonaut Georgi Berego- voy took a whack at blacksmithing yesterday as he and fellow Soviet spaceman, Konstantine Feoktistov, spent a leisurely day touring colonial WillJamsburg. While poking through the- many craft shops in the restored 18th century colonial capital, the Russians came upon master blacksmith John Allgood at work. Beregovoy asked if he could fry his hand before the forge, took a hammer and pounded out a horseshoe under Allgood's tutoring. Later, in a good-humored luncheon toast at the Christiana Campbell Tavern, he praised his effort as "the most historic event of the day." The two spacemen, accompanied by U.S. astronaut William Anders and Beregovoy's wife and son, took a carriage ride around the restored area. Mr. Beregovoy received a gift of a silver sunburst brooch at the jewelry shop, and both cosmonauts were given initialed pewter tankards at the pewteror's craft shop. Victor Beregovoy the astronaut's son, also received a gift and was given a look at an American football by children playing along historic Duke of Gloucester Street. At lunch, Anders proposed a toast to "more successful space flights by both the U.S. and Russia." Beregovoy returned the gesture with a toast to "the City of Williamsburg, which brings joy to the people and knowledge of history." The cosmonauts toured the College of William and Mary during the afternoon. At night the Russians, who took in a spy film. "The Chairman" Saturday night and "Williamsburg: The Story of a Patriot" at the start of their tour yesterday, went to the movies again. They saw a special showing of "True Grit," which had been flown in from Hollywood upon their request to see an American Western.
