Both would deny unions ac- cess to the state courts if they fail to set up chartered locals in Alaska, if such locals are re- quested by resident Alaskan members in secret elections conducted by the State Depart- ment of Labor. The only difference in the measures is the first bill applied to unions with 100 or more resi- dent AJaskans, while the new bill raised the number to 110. Another Murder In Anchorage ANCHORAGE (AP) Philip Mason, 36, was shot and killed Saturday night in a downtown Anchorage restaurant while two police officers were having cif- fee less than 20 feet away. His wife, Helen, was ar- raigned Sunday on a charge of first degree murder and bail was set at the de- fending champion, out first for the final heat of 30 miles on fast disintegrating track. Warmj weather and heavy use finally started taking its toll of the well prepared race course. Lombard, who used only nine dogs yesterday was overtaken and passed by Bryar near the 12-mile point. Bryar was using 13 huskies. The Massachusetts veterinarian however kept at Bryar's heels and repassed him about the 26 mile point but could do no better than third for the last heat. A new entry, and an Alaskan hope for recapturing the MAC title in the near future, Alfred Attla of Hughes, placed second yesterday, and finished a sur- prise third over-all. His total time was 313.82 minutes.

This was the common ob- servation of members of the 47th Infantry Division of the Minnesota National Guard who arrived at Ft. Greely last week for winter exercises. The exercises geared to train the men in surviving ex- tremery cold weather will con- tinue through this week. But there's an ironic twist to the whole thing. In sharp contrast to the springlike weather in the Fair- banks area, it is sub zero in most parts of Minnesota. The snow is fast disappear- ing in Alaska and blizzards are continuing in Minnesota with as much as 14 inches of fresh snow in the central part of the state.

Once or twice each year, a jlone bird would fly in the thou- sand miles from the coast and that would be an exciting oc- casion. All but two of the men were Russians. One was a Czecho- slovakian. The other was John Jacobs of the Geophysical Institute of the University of Alaska. For the past 14 months he has been at Vostok Station in the antarctic near the south geomagnetic pole. That station has the record low temperature for anywhere in the world 12S degrees be- low zero. John will leave Fairbanks Tuesday to continue his grad- uate studies at Dartmouth. He was here previously for more than a year and has re- turned briefly to take care of some business. Alaskans are more familiar with the effects of isolation than most other Americans. Men in Fairbanks often relate experiences encountered at such places as the Distant Early Warning line or remote con- struction and exploration camps. March 22.

He is a radio physicist and has been the U. S. exchange scientist for 1964 with the Soviet expedition at Vostok. He has been conducting experiments in solar-terrestrial relations, or the relationship of sun and earth, of "I just plug he says. He plugs along speaking English, Russian and German.

Supplies to the remote Wilkes- land site on the antarctic pla- teau are all flown in, and flights are made during the summer months only. The site is absolutely isolated most of the year.

Scientists expected to decide within hours just when to fire a small steering rocket to aim the spacecraft closer to its exact target, the possibly voloanic crater Alphonsus. Alphonsus, about 16 miles in diameter, is only 400 mihs south of the spot almost dead- center on the moon where Ran- ger 9 would impact without a change in course. The craft is capable of alter- ing its path up to miles on either side of the moon. Two interested spectators at Sunday's p.m. launch at Cape Kennedy, Fla., were Virgil I. Grissom and John W. Young, set to take a three-orbit spin Tuesday in the first of a series of Gemini spacecraft, forerun- ners of the three-man Apollo ship scheduled to rocket to the moon within five years. So accurate was guidance during the launching that, for the first time during the Ranger series, scientists said the space- craft would hit the face of the moon without mid-course cor- rection. Ranger 4 impacted on the back side of the moon with- out a change in its original tra- jectory. All other Rangers would have missed the moon by up to thousands of miles if their flight paths had not been al- tered. Plans call for Ranger 9 to crash into the moon at a.m. (EST) Wednesday taking thou- sands of pictures in the final 20 minutes. two-man Gemini flight is having good weather, in several loca- ful. Weathermen said the general trend of conditions was improv- ing but they would not commit themselves to a forecast. Astronauts Virgil I. Grissom and John signed to W. Young are as- take complete com- mand of their "Molly Brown" spacecraft and to change its orbit twice in other words, steer it in space. No one has ever done that before. This is an essential step in developing the ability to hook up with another craft in space. The technique must be perfected before men can ever land on and return from the moon toward which Ranger 9 is soar- ing now for another close-up inspection. It will be the second space flight for Grissom, 38, an Air Force major who made a sub- orbital trip in 1961, and the first for Young, 34, a Navy lieutenant commander. Both are experi- enced test pilots. Grissom and Young faced a busy day today reviewing the essential steps of their flight and how they would perform Marchers Follow King I SELMA, Ala.
