(AP) —A solid cloud cover closed over this missile launching base today JUKI a halt was called in the countdown on Virgil I. (Gus) Grissom's space rocket.

It was reported earlier that the rocketeers would have until 1 p.m. before making a decision on whether to wait for another clay. Since the rocket was fully fueled. lh«f postponement would have to bc~at least until Saturday because it takes two clays to clean out the tanks after fueling and another /or a new countdown.

Some members of Ihe Congress have suggested that. only the impacted areas provision may be passed in this session. Congress would nol meet its responsibilities, Kennedy said, if it passed only such legislation. He insisted thai all school assslance should be treated as a unit, A reporter suggested that opposition to giving aid lo nonpublic schools had contributed to the slalemale of UK; educational legislation. Kennedy said he thinks Congress ought to continue lo provide loans to nonpublic schools for specific purposes, lie noted that the Health, Education and Welfare Department had held in a report to Ihe House that such loans would be constitutional. Kennedy said he agrees with 'that position, so long as aid does not go across Ihe board to such schools In a way be said would be clearly unconstitutional." Private, and parochial schools now may obtain loans for specific purposes under Ihe National Defense Education Act. A bill to extend thai measure would provide- also for loans for some types of building construction for those schols.
