The Gemini 6 astronauts Navy Capli Walter M Schirra Jr and Air Force Maj Thomas P Stafford are expected to take off in pursuit Dec 13 The plan is to fly the two spacecraft in formation perhaps only inches apart for nearly six hours as they whip 185 miles above t h e earth at 17500 an hour Most space agency experts believe they have a 5050 chance or better to accomplish the ren dezvous If we can get them both off the ground the odds on achieving rendezvous are high said Flight Director Christopher Kraft Weve got a good chance of doing it There are three factors involved how well the spacecraft operates how well we do with the checkout of the Gemini 6 spacecraft and launch vehicle and the weather Unquestionably were going to have to have a lot going for us Kraft added Air Force Lt Col Jack Al bert Titan 2 launch director placed the odds at 5050 and said another major factor will be the amount of blast and fire dam age caused on Launch Pad 19 by the Gemini 7 blastoff y S3V uu

nothing but stupid and chickenhearted soldiers The be they of the old days or of today and from inside r outside the country are paper tigers The US air and naval su periority is not so frightening nor are atomic and hydrogen bombs so frightening nor are all US weapons so frightening We are fully capable of defeat ing the US paper tiger the broadcast said Some observers might inter pret this as preparation for Pek ing to come to the support of North Viet Nam But the Chinese Communists say over and over again that the people of Viet Nam themselves can conquer every effort to de feat them SAME
