NASA Disbands All 3-Man Astronaut Teams SPACE CENTER, Houston for a fresh tstart in the .wake of the Apollo 1 fire, the U.S. Space Agency has disbanded all three-man teams of astronauts assigned as Apollo crews. v Tht action raises a possibility that names might appear on the next crew lists. No such re-assignment expected until of at crews s least next month, after the Space Agency decides what spacecraft and program changes are needed as a result of the Jan. 27 tragedy.

The wealth of the state should edu- cate all "children despite where ihey may attend school." A proponent of a single countywide school district, Don- aldson s'aid it is highly inequi- table for people in the Continen- tal School District to pay 72 cents per in valuation and property owners in his district to pay ?8.70 per He also cited the rate in Vail, in Ajo, in Sa- huarita, ?8.15 in District 1 and .65 in Flowing Wells as exam- ples'of this inequity. Donaldson pointed bonded indebtedness to pay for school facilities ranges from zero to 100 per cent. The educator chided the State, Legislature for not providing more funds for education this year. Summers predicted the school property tax rate would contin- ue to go up "unless Something is done soon." He noted that 60 per cent of the physical proper- ties in his district have been built in the last 14 years and the s'chool student population has doubled in the past 12 years. He reported 84 per cent of the teachers are not drawing their maximum salaries. Hansen, also a proponent of a county district, said the rate in District 1 would drop from to if there were only one district in Pima County. Paulsen told the audience it was its duty to find the funds for education. Edgar Butterbaugh, an ac- countant and member of the Amphitheater School Board, moderated the forum.

"We don't have any crews assigned officially .to any missions at the present Slayton said. "There's hot much point in worrying about assignments until we know what we're going to Slayton said no idea what the composition of the new crews would be or when they would be announced. Immediately after the fire the space agency suspended schedules calling for two, and possibly three, manned Apollo flights this year. Crews were assigned to all these but no mention was made at the time they were suspended of dropping the crew assignments. Backing up the Apollo 1 prime crew Grissom, White and a team consisting of veteran Walter Schirra and rookies Donn Eisele and Walter Cunningham. Many observers felt this team would step in .to fly the first Apollo mission. The Apollo 2 crew, scheduled to make the first manned test in space of the bug-shaped lunar landing craft, consisted of James McDivitt, David Scott and Russell' Schweickart. Of this team, only Schweickart had never been into space. Apollo 3 crewmen were veterans Frank Bovman and Mike Collins, and rookie Bill Anders who would be making his first spaceflight. They, were to fly the first manned test in earth orbit of the powerful Saturn 5 moon rocket. Slayton said he thought the Apollo 2 and Apollo 3 crews, along with their backup teams, would "probably" remain the same when new assignments are made. he said, "I couldn't guarantee you anything. I guess all I can say in the crew area is that this is all unresolved at the present time."

APPARENT SUICIDE Artist Van Ryder Found Shot To Death The well-known western artist Jack Van Ryder was found shot to death today at his ranch home near Amado. Ex Officio Coroner Gilbert C, Soto said the shooting apparent- ly happened about 10 or 11 p.m. yesterday. He said it apparently was suicide. Born in nearby Continental in 1899, he spent most of his life in southern Arizona as a cowboy and rancher. It was Charles Russell, fhe famed artist of rug- ged outdoor scenes, who started him on his way to success. Van Ryder won acclaim for his murals of the West for the American Museum of Natural History and one of his paintings won the Corcoran Prize. In 1936 he had a one-man show of 33 oil paintings in New York Gains- borough Galleries.. Van Ryder interrupted his ca- reer for military service with the American Expeditionary Force to France during World War.I. Upon his return he set- tled near the Huachuca -Moun- tains. Near the onset of World War II he went with the 2nd Amer- ican Volunteer Group to serve with Gen, Claire Chenault in China for four years. He eventually retired as a lieutenant-colonel. He was act- ive since 1940 with the Civil Air Patrol. Among other activities, he was a free-lance columnist lor several Arizona newspapers. In later years he preferred to work in oils rather than with pen, pencil and charcoal, which he employed so well in his ear- lier years. He provided the orig- inal illustrations for the Jack Weadock book, "Dust of the De- sert." He had showings in re- cent years at Tubac. ,Residents of the area said Van Ryder hurt some ribs a few months ago. His home was ap- proximately a mile southeast of Amado. Friends said he re- ceived a visit during the holiday season from his wife who lives in New Jersey. Medicare Does Not Pay All Costs .vMany persons enrolled h. Medicare are under the wrong impression that the 'program provides full coverage of medi- cal expenses, Douglas Carter said today. Carter, district manager ol the Social Security Adminis- tration, explained .that benefi- ciaries are responsible for the first of a medical bill and for 20 per cent of the remain- der. Social Security, he said, pays 80 per cent of.the bill after a deductioi. of the The district manager also ex- plained that in order to get Medicare coverage at the start of their 65th birthday persons must enroll within a three- month period prior to the birth- day. When enrollment is delayed until the month >t the 65th birthday, coverage does not be- gin until the following month. A two to three-month delay in cov- erage results if the enrollment is later, Carter addeds IF YOU LET RALPH'S MOVING STORAGE vy do it for You... _, WUlf LMSS 127 W. 5th St. Strv'mg Tucson 41 Years Phone 622-6461 Sears Save 3 Days Only smoother ,nd lirar Choice Smooth Dripless Latex Flat Paint No Dripping, No Splatter, No Mess on smoothly, makes painting almost effortless.
