Doctors al the camp hospital said bolh Miller and his dog, Grelchen, were in remarkably good condition and probably will leave the hospital today. "1 was just about ready lo give jp," Miller said. "I never would liave made it if it hadn't been for Gretchcn." He said the dog defended him from coyples as he fled in a desert cave. Miller said he took a wrong road asl Tuesday nighl while en route from Phoenix lo Fresno. "I stayed by my truck all nighl aflcr we ran out of gas," he said. "The road loiked pretty well traveled so we look off on fool the next day to look for a place to buy gas. "Nobody came along. So we walked six or seven hurs. After a while I saw a sign that said "springs" and followed a path tin til we rechcd Ihe springs, about noon Wednesday." ' They took shelter in a cave at the springs, where there was water. They were found there by Richard Fricmoth and Phil Denning, who were inspecting the Irwin Firing Range. Miller estimated he walked 15 miles to the spring. He had bruises on the stump of his left leg, lost in an auto accident. The dog was bruised and scarred from fighls wilh animals. Temperatures in the area where Miller was found often exceed 120 degrees said Maj. John Waters executive officer of Uiu Irwin Army Hospital. Astronaut Is Picked for July 16 Flight CAPE CANAVERAL..Fla. <AP> —The astronaut selected to make America's second manned space flight began bis final week of preparation today, running through a scries of practice missions in a land-locked spacecraft. Speculation here centered on Air Force Capl. Virgil 1. Grissom as the man most likely to make the trip, with Marine Lt. Col. John II. Glenn Jr., as the backup pilot. Both men are undergoing training in case the No. 1 choice is unable ti> make the suborbital flight. The National Aeronautics and Space Administration has announced only that the flight will be attempted during the week of uly Hi, and declined any comment on the name of the astronaut ' who will follow the trail bla/.cd on May 5 by Navy Cmdr. Alan B. Shcpard Jr., Sources report uly 1)1 is the scheduled launch date. The flight essentially will duplicate that o f Shcpard, whose space capsule hi ed 110 miles high and landed H02 miles down the Atlantic range. Some changes have been made in the capsule, and the pilot will make fewer observations than Shcpard. But main purpose of the mission will be to give another astronaut a brief taste of space flight. The space agency wants to have at least four pilots trained for orbital flights scheduled lo begin late this year or early in 19C>2. Grissom, :if>, is from Mitchell, 1ml. Glenn, XI, who was Shcpard's backup is a native of New Con- backup, is a native of New Concord, Ohio. Three major changes have been made in the spacecraft, partly based on recommendations by Shcpard after his pioneer journey. They arc: 1. A new, larger observation Window to replace two viewports which Shcpard found inadequate. 2. A more advanced manual control system for .steering the spacecraft. It will be in addition to the manual system used by Shepard. H. A new escape hatch with 70 explosive bolts for a more rapid escape from the vehicle in an emergency.

Recalls Day When Allies Hit Palermo By HAL BOYLE NEW YORK (AP>—Death lay wailing around the corner on the road lo Palermo. It was just HI years ago this week that the Americans and British landed in Sicily. II was a bright, brief, biltcr, dusty campaign that in li!) days broke Ihe Axis airpower in Ihe eastern Mediterranean and gave Ihe Allies a stepping stone lo llaly. The Battle of Sicily has long been swallowed up in the larger events of World War H. The public may remember it for only two foulups-~an angry Gen. Pal- Ion slapping a private to startle him out of shcllshock, the shooting down by the U.S. Navy of more than a score of our own paratroop-laden aircraft,. Each man who fought there, of course, has his own memories: The smell of the unburied dead in the bombed ruins, the shimmering heat, the sweet tasle of watermelons plucked warm from the vines, weeping Sicilian women as Ihc long linos of Italian soldiers walked or rode cheerfully into surrender, glad to be out of a war they didn't want to be in, the pinch-faced children's hands held out for bread. Bul. I remember Sicily mosl for a rare combat vignette you see seldom on sprawling battlefields, where individual actions usually arc losl sight of. It happened in a winding mountain gorge on Ihe road to Palermo the Sicilian capital. A German engineer, his hands upraised, his myopic eyes wid| in fear, stumbled from the underbrush lo Hive himself up lo a U.S. armored column. 'There is a !)() mm. gun around Ihe nexl. bend in Ihe road," he warned. What should the American commander, Brig. Gen. Maurice Hose do? Believe his captive or not?

Industry sources 'say Ibis would be enough to cover i Lake Michigan, although they j don't say why anyone should want to. Urelhane foam is made by adding a polyelher and toluene di- isoeyanale and a catalyst to water and agitating Ihe mixture. Among Ihe major chemical suppliers are Du Pont, Allied Chemical, Union Carbide, Dow, Mobay and O|in. Olin officials predict industry output of flexible loam will hil 250 million pounds by I!)(i5 and rigid foam nearly yo million pounds.

(AP>—Twelve- ycar-old Becky Roever — lost on the rocky Oregon Coast—survived a three-day ordeal without food and with only a trickle of water from a spring until a daring helicopter crew flew through fog lo her rescue. Becky, who comes from Bellaire, Tex., is recuperating in a hospital here loday. The helicopter crew aproached icrilously close to Ihe cliffs lo and on a narrow and rocky bea^h where the girl was found Monday? 'If I had a million dollars," said Mrs. William Roever, the irl's mother, "I couldn't begin lo repay all the wonderful people who offered us their help." Said her father: "Neither Becky's mother nor her grandfather nor 1 had ever given up hope. I just couldn't believe she had fallen into the ocean." Becky's grandfather, Peler Long, had flown to the Oregon Coast from Houston, Tex., when he learned she was missing, lie led search parlies throughout the night Sunday. She was spoiled by a fisherman, Unio Raulio of Seaside. "She saw me before I saw her." KtiUlio said. "She called for help and 1 knew who she was. I bad Ihc liltlc lost girl in Hie hack of my mind. I knew no one had given this particular area a thorough search." Raulio said he gave her some food and water, carried her lo the shelter of a large rock, then ran and yelled for help. .His shouts were heard by a nearby search party, and rescuers converged on Ihe beach area. Eight men made their way, half sliding, down the precarious incline lo Ihe beach. Then the helicopter, piloted by 1st LI. Dennis M. Chase, Portland, <lucked through a bole in the fog bank and skimmed over the ocean waters to lake the girl tu safety.
