COLUMBUS, LEDGER, AUG. 25, Fate of 0503 Unknown Solar Satellite Ends in Failure CAPE KENNEDY, Fla. (AP) -A "Sunshine Satellite-" was the sun today but disappeared into a dark cloud of technical difficulties. Space Agency officials announced the 620-pound satellite not achieved the planned 350-mile-high orbit because of apparent trouble with the rocket's third stage.

1012 1st AVENUE They did not know whether the satellite, named 0503 for orbiting solar observatory, had achieved a lower orbit or had plunged into the ocean. But, they said, its mission was an apparent failure. OSO3 carried nine experiments to continue solar investigations begun by two earlier OSO satellites, launched in 1962 and last February by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration. A total of eight launchings is planned in the series to chart a full 11-year solar cycle from the present quiet period to a period of peak activity when numerous solar flares spill torrents of radiation into space.

Mr. Woodall for a number of years served as councilman for the city of Woodland and was once mayor of the community.

He was a steward of the Woodland Methodist Church and for many years active in civic affairs of the local Lions Club. He was born in Talbot County on April 4, 1886, a son of the late Henry Thomas and Ida Pye Woodall. He is survived by his widow, the former Bertha Mae Matthews of Woodland, a son John Henry Woodall a daughter, Mrs. Robert H. Wilson, Swarthmore, five grandchildren.

Mr. Woodall graduated in 1908 from Georgia Institute of nology with a BS degree in mechanical engineering and the following year organized Georgia Wrapper. He later organizWoodland Furniture, firms now doing an annual business of more than $2 million. Mr. Woodall was a cousin to the W.

C. Woodall family of Columbus. He was credited with being the organizer of the Georgia School Boards Association and for several years was a director of the National School Boards Association. He declined to serve as president of the National Association. Mr.

Woodall first served in the Georgia Senate during the stormy 1947-48 session when Herman Talmadge and M. E. Thompson both laid claim to the governor's chair. Woodall Gemini Gemini control said. Minor but irritating problems kept both busy as they approached their fifth daymore than half way -in the eight-day flight.

Gemini control passed the word up to them that they were "go" for another day least to the start of the 77th orbit. The word came just before they entered the 61st orbit 9:28 a.m. EDT over the Baja Peninsula of lower California. Plans already were underway for a splashdown -barring unforeseen 9:51 a.m. EDT the westemergencies ern Atlantic.

Otherwise, space center officials said, was going well on the recordbreaking flight. At 10 a.m. EDT today space pilots were to complete their fourth day in space enter the downhill phase of the flight.

The "We figure we need about 44 (lahoma pounds (of fuel) to finish all of make the experiments, and we have passed about 45 the flight hours controller said, "so be conserva- ago by tive on it, okay?" rey Conrad agreed and asked a favor in return: that experiments be cut out of evening periods of their cosmic flight. "We, for some reason, are having trouble sleeping," Conrad reported in a conversation with fellow Elliot M. See.

"One guy astronauts the one when he's doing anything, is what it amounts to." Despite sleep problems and minor difficulties ranging from computer inconsistencies to a radar problem, mission control reported "all systems, go" for the full eight-day flight. "They seem to be doing quite well," said fellow astronaut Edwin (Buzz) Aldrin. "They're in pretty good shape." Cooper and Conrad copied the list of experiments in a conversation with Gemini control relayed through the Carnarvan, Australia, tracking station. It called for shooting photographs of unspecified ground and space objects as the astronauts whirled through orbits 60 and 63. Other paces included a repeat of visual accuity run in which the space pilots try to sight a giant eye chart laid out in Laredo, Tex.

They were also instructed to "shoot the stars" with special radiometric equipment on board the capsule, and to take a close look at thunderstorms which were in heavy formation over northern Florida. Cooper today owned the world's space endurance record but "we got no reaction from him" about it, said space officials. "We did not advise him from the ground. "We assumed he would realize this." At 10 a.m. EDT today, the at clock ticked off their fourth day in space.

There were four days to go for Gemini 5. "I don't expect we'll have at trouble the rest of the any flight," said an obviously pleased flight director Christopher C. Kraft. Neither Cooper nor Conrad had forgotten, however, that the journey must come to an endSunday morning, if all goes well. Early today, as Gemini 5 swung across South America and the Atlantic Ocean, Cooper practiced a series of maneuvers he must perform before re-entry.
