BULLDOG 4 The Arizona Republic Phoenix, Wed., Nov. 5,1969 {Soviet space station seen within 5 years New York Times Service - Dr. Mstislav V. Keldysh, ^resident of the Academy of Sciences, Said yesterday the Soviet Union hopes to have a permanent space station orbiting file earth in the next five years but {hat this does not rule out Soviet exploration of the moon and the other pla- fiets. f- r : In a 2%-hour news conference devoted to last month's mission of Soyuz 6, So- juz 7 and Soyuz 8, the leading Soviet scientific official said that while the United States has "concentrated all its efforts" on moon exploration, the Soviet Union had been moving on "a wider front." ' He said in the coming year the Soviet Union "shall continue research of the planets, the near earth space, and work <;in orbital stations." ;' Asked specifically if the Soviet Union has plans to send a man to the moon, he smiled and said, "I can only say that such operations are not planned for the coming months." But he added, to enlarge upon his answer: "Shall we study the universe with the help of automatic (unmanned) spacecraft? We shall. Shall we fly to the moon and other planets of the solar sys- tem in the future? I think we shall because such travel is one. of the further aims of mankind in conquering outer space." The news conference was held in an ornate auditorium at skyscraper Moscow University and was televised live nationwide. Besides Keldysh, all seven cosmonauts from the group flight took part. Each of them gave a short report on some aspect of the mission — most of which already had been made public — and later answered questions. The cosmonauts were Lt. Col. Georgi S. Shonin and Valery N. Kubasov of Soyuz 6, Lt. Col. Anatoly V. Filipchenko, Vladimir A. Shatalov and Alexei S. V. Gorbatko .of Soyuz 7, and Col. Vladimir A. Shatalov and Alekxsei S. Yeliseyev of Soyuz 8. Shatalov was group commander. Keldysh, who has become over the years the virtual Soviet spokesman on space matters largely through his being chairman of the postflight news conferences, took no note of reports from Stockholm two weeks ago which quoted him as saying the Soviet Union had dropped plans to send someone to the moon to concentrate on space stations. He stressed that Russian efforts would be concentrated on creating the first permanent orbital space station from which space research could be conducted or flights originated. Asked when such a station would be built, he said: "Well, within a few years. It will certainly be within 10 years, and I think less than five years; anyway literally in the nearest future." Keldysh indicated that the chief problem is not the technical ability of building such a station but the health of the cosmonauts who would be asked to live aboard the orbiting laboratory. "The main problem which is not yet solved," he said, is whether man can live in a state of weightlessness for the six months to a year he might be re- guired to stay in a space station. "Neither Soviet nor American biologists or doctors can give a single answer ..." to this question, he said. "This is not known, but I think that in any case this will not stop the building of orbital stations, because, if it shall be proven that the consequences of a long stay in orbit in weightlessness are fatal, the conditions of artificial gravity will have to be created," he said.

March! stood by Nixon's policy and denounced the mayor for endorsing antiwar demonstrations. One of Lindsay's final campaign acts was a statement describing the Nixon Vietnam speech as a disappointment. He said it broke "no new ground, reported no new progress." "I've been opposed to the war from the beginning," Lindsay said. "It continues to drain our cities of much needed resources." While his rivals accused him of being soft on criminals, Lindsay had his own law and order reminders. In one of the television commercials which were a fixture of his smooth and expensive campaign, the mayor admitted a foulup in snow removal during a February blizzard. "But I put 6,000 more cops on the streets," he went on, "and that was no mistake." Lindsay had the support of big-name liberal Democrats, and he toured a Negro slum project with Mrs. Robert F. Kennedy, widow of the senator. Nationally known Democrats, including the party's national committee in Washington, shunned Procaccino, who narrowly defeated four liberals to win the Democratic nomination. Stokes told Cleveland voters he had made a significant beginning in dealing with city problems, and needed more time to work his solutions. Republican Perk hammered at the law and order theme; Stokes called him "a local Spiro Agnew." In Detroit, torn by deadly racial violence little more than two years ago, Austin claimed he would have been the heavy favorite in. the mayor's race if he were white. Gribbs, who earlier had played down the racial issue, said in a final debate that Austin's campaign staff included a black militant. In Virginia, Holton, 46, was making his second run at the governorship. Between his own campaigns, he served as an early organizer of the Nixon presidential bid. Battle, 49, is a former U.S. ambassador to Australia, and the son of a former governor. The two Virginians displayed little difference on campaign issues, debating instead about one-party rule and the question of which man could do a better job, Meyner, 61, raised the Vietnam issue in New Jersey, but it did not become a major feature of a campaign marked by a cross-fire of bitter personal charges. Cahill, a six-term congressman, and Meyner, who had served two terms as governor, charged each other with dishonesty and conflicts of interest. Incumbent Democratic governors in the two states, both carried by Nixon a year ago, were not eligible for re-election under state laws. Republicans went into the election with 30 of the 50 governorships including those of all the major industrial states. More about Kuinmerlowe verdict slated tomorrow Continued from Page 1 which portrayed the defendant as a monster and a beast." He called the spectators in the courtroom representatives of the "morbid" segment of society. Although he stoutly insisted Kummer- towe is innocent of Kimbro's deeath, Lee failed to contradict any of the evidence or testimony presented by the state and pleaded that the state's demand for the death penalty go unheeded. Prosecutor Dave Rosenthal, who presented the final arguments in'the trial, said: "I feel no remorse in 'asking the death penalty because if there ever was a case where the death penalty should be, it is this case." . Rosenthal said Kimmerlowe "gave no quarter to Harley Kimbro.'' "Why did he murder?" Rosenthal asked: "Because he coveted another man's wife." The contention, by Rosenthal was that Kummerlowe's motive was his desire for Kimbro's wife. Mary Kimbro, 33, and Kummerlowe had worked together at AiResearch at one time and she testified at the preliminary hearing that she had been having intimate relations with Kummerlowe for five months. However, her testimony was that she had rejected Kummerlowe's plea to leave her husband, whom she married last February after being his common law wife for several years. versity as an engineer and an ordained minister." ....... "A monster who has forfeited his right to live," retorted Rosenthal. ' • '. Parts of Kimbro's dissected body were found in the rear of Kummerlow's pickup truck camper when he was arrested last April. Other parts of the body were found in Phoenix canals. A key to Room 104 of the Desert Rose was found in Kum- merlow's pocket. Kummerlowe, crewcut, dressed in a dark blue suit, white tie and black shoes, was calm throughout the proceedings. He waved to friends following the hearing and was allowed to meet in a nearby room with his wife after the trial. Lee, in his plea for Kummerlowe, , Lee said that he will seek a mitigation pqinte'd to the defendant's "42 years as a-'.'-'hearing before Strand sentences Kum- flawless citizen, a graduate of Yale Uhi- ' 'merlowe, if Kummerlowe is found guilty.

The planning and development budget request seeks a state appropriation of $1.9 million next year, compared with $617,000 this year. The increase would include $237,000 to build and '$183,000 to 'equip and staff Phoenix and Tucson airport welcome stations and two 'highway welcome stations at unspecified locations. • • .' ' The increased state funds also would give the department six more development workers, and nine for administration, with bigger travel and entertainment allowances. To the state funds, the department expects to be able to add. $1.3 million from the federal government to step up planning, with six more employes in that division.

There is no assurance, however, that the enabling appropriation bill will be as large, Stennis indicated that several controversial programs, including the $414 million worth of ships, might not be ft- nanced during this fiscal year. The Defense Department succeeded in rescuing, the controversial main battle tank project, which is being conducted jointly with West Germany. The House had cut all such funds from the bill, but the conference report included' $30 million for researched development and $20 million for production.

TUCSON (AP)-A Superior Court jury yesterday found Harry A. Slefkin guilty of obtaining money by cashing a bogus $9,600 check at the Union Bank two years ago. Lars Pedersen, chief deputy county attorney, told the jury shortly before they began deliberating yesterday that Slef- kin duped bank vice president Harry Chambers into what a teller mistook for approval to cash the check. Chambers testified the bank was crowded at the time Slef- kin told him he needed .a $7,000 cashier's check. The official said Slefkin told him he had' $11,000 on deposit, and Chambers intro • duced him to a teller, thinking she would check the balance in his account. Pedersen said the teller took Chambers' introduction as an endorsement and wrote out a deposit slip for a bogus $9,000 check and the $7,000 cashier's check for Slefkin -Advertisement- More Security With FALSETEETH While Earing, Toiktog • _Xrr& (^/atle eru of- 108 W.
