Mason City Globe-Gazette (Newspaper) - November 30, 1962, Mason City, Iowa North Iowas Newspaper for th VOL 107 MI ii Those who run space programs US Russian setups differ By JOHN G WARNER WASHINGTON UP1 Th details of the organization tha guides Russias space venture is one of the closest secrets i the Soviet Union The men who run the Russia space effort are for the mos part equally obscure There ar a number of prominent scientist involved but exactly where the fit irito the pattern is a matte of conjecture The top man apparently i Konstantin Rudnev a newcpme to the job Rudnev was ap pointed recently to becom deputy premier and chairman o the state committee for the co ordination of scientific researc work Rudnev was chairman o the state committee of the US SR council of ministers for de fense technology before takin the higher post Thus job probabl corresponds roughly to that o James L Webb administrato of the US National Aeronautic and Space Agency Webb a former State Depart ment official is an organize and administrator The chie scientist in the US space ef fort is his deputy administrator Dr Hugh L Dryden Who is Drydens counterpar in Russia The best bet seem to be that rather than a singl man a team of scientists medical and rocket experts de cides who does what in th Soviet space effort not entire ly unlike the US setup After the historic orbital fligh of Yuri Gagarin in 1961 Premie Khrushchev was officially hon ored for his leadership of the space program This would be comparable to President Ken nedy getting a medal for cham pioning NASAs efforts to get al the money it feels it needs One of the key figures in the Russian system is undoubtedly academician Leonid Sedov president of the National As tronautical Federation The be spectacled greying man is a familiar figure at internationa scientific meetings He is a rocketry expert The Russian ballistics expert seems to be academician Anatol Blagonravov Academician Evgeny Fyodo rbV once s polar explorer ap parently deals largely with the polticalaspects of the Soviet space program Some of the lesserknown sci entists however are felt by many to have the biggest voice in what is safe for a Russian to undertake in space One of them is academician Norair Sisakyan a burly Armen ian who probably runs the biological section of the space program Another is V V Parin a dry humored space medicine ex pert S N Vernon a colorless but exacting member of the academy of sciences seems to specialize in cosmic rays There is no indication that the Russians compartmentalize their space effort to the extent that the United States does For instance both NASA and the Air Force have vast space programs going The Air Force concentrates on the military as and warn ing satellites and jointly with NASA managed the X15 pro ject Titles and duties do not al ways coincide in the US space effort The director of NASAs office of manned space flight programs is D Brainerd Holmes a scientist who took a pay cut of around to go to work for the government He runs the Apollo project the plan to land men on the moon Robert R Gilruth who runs the new space center at Hous ton is the man incharge of Project Mercury the current space flight program On the inside Editorials Page 4 Society Mason City News B9 Latest Markets North Iowa News 10 Sports1112 Clear Lake News 15 Comics U The f CITY GLOBEGAZETTE

Glen Powers made his budget requests Hughes interrupted to discuss such thing as absence of geese the limit on ducks and the possibility of per mitting hunters to shoot hen pheasants lowans were permitted to shoot only two ducks this season only one of which could be a mallard Hughes went hunting for two day after his election earlier this month The ducks I got cost me about each Hughes said And where were all the geese I keep tearing about lots of geese on the Missouri River but we sure didnt see very many If we are only going to be allowed two ducks in our limit think it would be better to close the season for a year or two or whatever it takes to get our duck population back to normal The gripe I heard Hughes added is that in Iowa we get only one shot at the ducks when they fly by but in Texas and Mex ico they hunt them all winter Powers said he agreed that the duck season should have been closed He said the Conservation ommission made that recom mendation but other states in the Mississippi Flyway overruled the Iowa vote Hughes asked states pheasant population compared this fall with previous years and Powers said that the I harvest will be up fflis year r but its very hard work get ting them be cause of a hea vy cover and lack of snow To Hughes sug HUGHES g e s t i o n that iunters be allowed to shoot one ien pheasant along with cocks Powers replied that it has been considered But he added that a icayy winterkill could endanger he population of birds if hen iheasants already were depleted iy hunters More power for Powers DES MOINES AP The di cctor of the
