PIXiW by Wohl Cosmonauts pass space medical test United Press International MOSCOW —A Soviet space medical expert said yesterday the Soyuz 9 cosmonauts have successfully warded off the ill effects of a long spa- ceflight and proved the worth of pioneering medical countermeasures. The report by the news agency Tass, quoting an anonymous leader of the medical testing team for the flight, said Col. Andrian Niko- layev and Vitaly Sevastianov "fully adapted themselves to the state of weightlessness during the first three days of the flight." The Tass report was the most optimistic so far on the record-breaking Soyuz mission. It was the first time scientists claimed success in their attempt to overcome the ill effects of weightlessness. "It is safe to say now that both cosmonauts cope extremely well with the great number of operations and their flight program," Tass said. The heart of the program according to other reports by Soviet scientists, was regular exercise to prevent irregularities of blood pressure and weakening of muscles caused by the physical ease of existing in weightlessness. Nikolayev and Sevastianov work out daily in special stress suits that put extra strain on their muscles and help stimulate stress gravity would normally provide them. Tass said that in the 16th day of their flight the crew performed medical checks on one another and pronounced each other in perfect shape. They also enjoyed breathtaking views of some of the earth's most scenic geography and largest cities, recording some of it with sophisticated camera equipment. Nikolayev and Sevastianov blasted off from Baikonur Cosmodrome in their two room Soyuz 9 on June 1, on a mission to test man's ability to five and work efficiently under long periods of weightlessness. They broke the old space endurance record set by America's Gemini 7 in 1965 — 13 days 8 hours 35 minutes — at 4:35 p.m. Monday. Space sources in Moscow said the flight will last at least a week beyond that mark. A Tass progress report said Soyuz had logged 253 orbits of the Earth by early afternoon yesterday. Using the Soviet figure of about 24,900 miles per orbit, this meant they had covered about 6.3 million miles. Prisoner sues over sentence TUCSON (AP) - Joseph Lee Schmidall, an inmate at the Arizona State Prison in Florence, filed a $100,000 lawsuit yesterday, claiming he was not properly charged and was illegally sentenced. | Schmidgall, now serving a two to three-year term for tire theft, said in the lawsuit that a warrant for his arrest last year was not properly endorsed. i In the complaint, he asks damages of $20,000 each from Pima County Attorney Rose Silver, Deputy County Attor ney Horton Weiss, his own defense attorney, Ben Laza row, and others not named. 5 MILLION TOURISTS LONDON (AP) -r- Five million foreigners visited Britain ui 18(59 and spent $852 million, i Tiavd A.y=<>eiatio;i REPUBLIC CITY opposition called 'standpatismj 'heanl-in-ihe-sandism 9 Republic Washington Bnrean WASfflNGTON - Liberals who are against developing the super-sonic transport are standpatters with their heads in the sand. Sen. Barry M. Goldwater, R-Ariz., charged yesterday. As a matter of fact, the 1964 presidential contender said, he sees liberals these days doing a lot of strange things — as, for instance, tak- ing isolationist stands on Vietnam and Cambodia. Goldwater assured his colleagues during a floor speech that he still believes there are lessons of history to be cherished and maintained. Change for the sake of change is something he is still against, he said. But, he told the liberals, this is a changing world and the nation must spend energy and money to keep abreast. "Cutting through all the arguments, ranging from noise pollution to cost," Goldwater said, "the fact remains that the world is going to have an SST. As a matter of fact, it already has two which are flying in Europe and which are successful enough to be predictably operational within the foreseeable future." Goldwater said that the lib- eral community objecting to American development of the SST is practicing "laissez faire with a vengeance." "This," he said, "is not only 'standpatism' but it's 'head-in-the-sandism.' " For the United States to wait for a convenient time to work on the SST would be equal to Ford Motor Company's announcing delay of 19?1 models because of financial problems, Goldwater said. The Arizonan said Russia, France and Great Britain will welcome any delay in U.S. development of the SST caused by "a mistaken idea of national priorities." America might not produce the best SST, Goldwater said, "but on the basis of our record we stand the best chance." Goldwater scorned people who say present-day jets are fast enough. "The people using this (argument) are similar to those cynical Americans who in the early days of this century used to shout, 'Get a horse!' at every motorist they encountered," he said. He said time-conscious travelers will welcome faster planes. "We can expect the principal world airlines, in- The Arizona Republic 41 Thtfrs., Jtme 18,1970 O eluding those in the United- States, to buy SSTs wherever they can get them in the near future." Goldwater said that private industry cannot scrape together the $1.5 billion need to develop the plane and build the two prototypes. "No private comp'any has the kind of financial reserves that such a commitment would require,",, he said. OPEN DAILY 10-10, SUN. 10-6 THURSDAY. FRIDAY, SATURDAY A DlvUlon of $.$.
