moon But 16 Yanks have tickets By JOHN BARBOUR WASHINGTON AP Sixteen American astronauts have ticket for that first trip to the moon But the flight is sadly oversold There are only three seats avail able Only two of these will land on the moon One astronaut will have to stay with the main spaceship parked in orbit around the moon It will be a tricky effort from the moment the 300foot Saturn rocket blasts off from earth to that second of glory when a man made space cab comes td rest on the lunar surface We are 90109 President Kenne dy said on to an unknown celestial body The trip by step the first cautious pries al ready taken Three Ameri cans have or bited the earth for a total of 18 hours Some time early next year likely at least one astro naut maybe more will go into earth orbit for a full day After that the space program will take itsfirst major Gemini spacecraft The Gemini about twice as big as the Mercury spaceships will carry two men into orbit around the earth after early test flights It will be able in orbit for up to two weeks with enough oxygen and electrical power Or for shorter periodsastronauts can train themselves to maneuver in space and to find and dock with another orbiting spacecraft This training will lay ground work for the Apollo spaceship flights to the moon Apollo spacecraft next will make flights around the earth then a flight once around the moon and back to earth Finally a special Apollo crew will ride atop a monster rocket with enough speed to go into or bit for several trips around the moon From a garage in Apollos midsection perhaps there will be released a small twoman space bug with two crewmen aboard Those two men will try to touch down on the moon One at a time they will foot the lunar surface Back in their space cab in communication with the earth and their mothership they will hold thenown countdown and fire the rockets that will put them on an orbital intercept course with the mothership The space cab will dock with the Apollo mothership and the two lunar pioneers will rejoin the third member Then at a precise moment during their whirling course around the moon the three astronauts will fire off rockets to tear them loose from their lunar jrbit and send them hurtling to ward the earth Both one on the moon and the one in lunar be exactly timed The relative Positions of earth moon and spacecraft are fed into computers in the spacecraft and the men will check the compo nents of rocketships by elec trical means These inspace countdowns are themost critical points in the trip That in brief outline is the scheme The aim is to do it in thisdecade The hope is to do it by 1967 REPEATS WARNINGSoviet Foreign Minister Andrei Gro myko warned the western pow ers that Russia definitely will sign a German

SOS signals for truant members to hustla to reach final ad journment Saturday through a maze of parliamentary tangles The drive to end the 1962 session Friday night collapsed when the House had to quit because it fell 14 short of the 218 members needed to provide a quorum This was the first time such a thing had happened in that body since 1945 Both Senate and House had been in recess most of Friday afternoon and evening while their leaders tried desperately in cloak room huddles to clear away the last roadblocks Veteran attaches at the Capitol called it the most bizarre windup attempt in memory However after the House had been forced to quit until today leaders of both branches held an other session and out a plan whichthey said should bring adjournment late this afternoon The first requirement is that the House muster a quorum or ma jority as soon as it meets Dem ocratic Leader Carl Albert D Okla said this had been assured A number of members from East ern states had promised to come back If this is accomplished the louse then plans to complete ac ion on the last bill it would have o put billion public works appropriations bill The House was voting on this Friday night when it was forced apostolatemass communica Unusual ending to frustrating day to give up Before passing it however leadersplan tohave the House amend it to restore some public works projects for Oregon and other states which were knocked out earlier in the SenateHouse conference on the Jegislatjon Senate then will haveto act on only two public vorks money measure and a nllion public works authorization ill agreed on Friday This authorization measure aining projects for all parts of ic country had beenthe stum bling block to adjournment But the dispute over it ended Friday with Senate agreement to elimin ate about eight major projects the House adamantly opposed The House then promptly passed the compromise version It had passed the Senate Thurs day night But Rep Clarence Cannon DMo chairman of the House Appropriations Committee blocked it from going to confer ence because of a number of items the Senate added The supplemental had been con sidered the key to adjournment because the Senate had added to it the Oregon projects eliminated from the public works appropria tions bill But if they are restored to the appropriations bill by the House Saturday pressure to pass the supplemental will ease Cannon forced the house to quit Friday night when he demanded a roll call vote on an attempt to keep in the public works money bill a Florida project he opposed This was a item to complete preconstruction plan ning of the Florida crossstate barge canal Cannon lost 120 to 84 inhis attempt to block the ject but the vote disclosed the lack of a quorum WASHINGTON AP Mr Speaker how am I recorded That question was asked dozens of times Friday night in the well of the House of Representatives It was a delaying tactic an ef fort to stave off the end of a quorum call The idea was to wait a little longer and maybe enough members would show up to allow the House to continue its business and reach a final adjournment Rep H R Gross de manded regular order and asked how many times members had to ask how they were record ed The roll call has not yet been completed ruled Speaker John W McCormack amid much laughter But delay as they might it ing tactic repeated often didnt do any good In the end McCormack had toannounce that only 204 members weVe present short of the quorum or majority of 218 needed to transact business There was only one thing left to do Adjourn until noon Sat urday That motion was made and Mc Cormack banged his gavel and declared it was carried Cries of protest rang out on the Republican side of the aisle and demands to be heard But McCormack already was marching down from the rostrum and the great mace of the House was being carried out of the chamber The House was no long er in session It was a highly unusual ending to a long lacklustre frustrating day as SenateHouse conferees struggled to straighten out details on the last big bills of the ses sion The last lime such an oddity occurred in the House with legis lation pending was on March 16 1945 That also came on an ap propriation bill The House was prompty adjourned and the bill finally was passed the next day Another unusual aspect of day nights quorum vote was confusion over just what was be ing voted upon Twice Ihe roll call was interrupted by parlia mentary inquiries on the point Roll calls arenever interrupted for any reason according to House veterans except for some thing as momentous as an emerg ency message from the President
