Astronaut Shot May Be Stalled CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. (UPI) The space- man and his rocket were ready Monday but the weather wasn't. So there was a strong possibility :hat America's first attempt to fire a .human being into space might be postponed from 8 a.m. EDT Tuesday until some time :ater in the week. But Florida weather is tricky, forecasts sometimes are reversed in a matter of hours, and officials of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) re- "used for the time being to predict a balk. In brief, the forecast for the originally-planned flight time was 'too cloudy and too windy." NASA still was keeping secret identities of the No. 1 and No. 2 -astronauts. But speculation cen- tred on Navy Cmdr. Alan B. Shepard Jr., 37-year-old test pilot from East Deny, N.H., for the prime spot. The other members of the three- man Mercury team trained for this flight were Air Force Capt. Virgil I. Grissom, 35, of Mitchell, Ind.. and Marine Lt. Col. John H. Glenn Jr., 39, of New Concord, Ohio. The 66-ton Redstone rocket and the ton-and-a-half Mercury space- craft were ready on pad No. 5. The "prime" astronaut and his "backup" were ready in their comfortable isolation quarters on the cape. Nearly 10.000 men scientists, finely trained technicians, crews of the seven-ship recovery were ready. The crucial countdown, the painstaking two day pre-launch checkout of rocket and cabin equipment, was proceeding "with no officials said. Then, with the nation less than 24 hours away from its first brief but critical step toward manned conquest of space, the forecasts turned sour. But even a 15-minute space ride is hazardous, however hard the men of Mercury have tried to an- ticipate and eliminate risks. So NASA had set certain rigid weather specifications, both here and in the recovery area, that nature had to meet before it would jeopardize a life. Glenn Appears In Motel Office CAPE CANAVERAL (UPI) John H- Glenn Jr.. of New Con- cord. Ohio, one of three astro- nauts who were supposed to be in seclusion as candidates for 3 roi1 et ride into space, startler newsmen Monday by showing up in a motel office. Glenn spent about 15 minutes hi the motel's office, then depart- ed by a rear entrance, leaped into a green car and sped toward the Cape. B. G. McNabb. project officer on the Atlas missile, was in the office at time. He said Glenn had come in to "cash a check, give his wife some money and pay his motel bill." COUNTDOWN AT HOME Mr. and Mrs. Glenn stand outside their comfortable home in New Concord. Their astronaut son was 2 years old when the family moved into this home. Tiie astronaut7s mother last night was expecting to make good use of the telephone today. She said she planned to be talking her son and with his wife and cliildren. Glenn's Parents Await Word With Mixed Emotions By REGIME KEVIBERLY The lights probably came on early this morning in a pretty home on Bloomfield road, a short distance north of New Con- cord's main street. In fact, the John Glenns, parents of Lt. Col. John Glenn Jr., one of two candidates for America's first astronaut, weren't sure Monday that they would even go to bed last night! "We may just slay Colonel Glenn's mother said. Neither Glenn, a retired plumbing contractor, nor his wife displayed any outward signs of anxiety as they discussed the possibility of their son's space flight. "Naturally, we view the whole thing with mixed Mrs. Glenn said. "We know that John is eager to be the first and for that reason, we are hoping that he is the one chosen." However, the Glenns know that if their son misses out on Dr. Robert N. Montgomery, president of Muskingum Col- lege, announced Monday that Lt. Col. John Glenn will be awarded an honorary degree at commencement exercises next month. The action was taken by the board at a meeting last week and approved Monday by the faculty. Colonel Glenn will be one of several to receive honorary degrees. A former Muskingum student, he is expected to be given the degree of doctor of science. being picked for the first manned space shot, he is assured of a later flight, perhaps an even more important one than today's. Despite the fact that it was rumored early yesterday after- noon that Navy Cmdr. Alan B. Shepard Jr. had been designat- ed to make the trip, the Glenns were inclined to wait for an official announcement. In a telephone conversation Sunday -with their daughter-in- law, Annie Glenn, at her home in Arlington, Va., they were told that the identity of the first astronaut would be revealed three hours before the launching. "She said she would call us if she had a chance. She was in good spirits and iold us she had talked to John on Friday night." Mrs. Glenn said. Colonel Glenn's father pointed out that space shots are frequently delayed for several days and added, "We may have to wait this thing out all week." Although the Glenns have not seen their son since Thanks- giving, they receive frequent telephone calls from him. "That's his form of his mother explained. And during the past winter, during a Florida vacation, the Glenns were able to talk with their son even more often. Un- fortunately, his rigid training schedule and the tight security surrounding Cape Canaveral kept the three from getting to- gether. However, during a previous trip to Florida, Mr. and Mrs. Glenn visited Cape Canaveral with John and are thoroughly familiar with the scene of the proposed space shot. They have watched several recent telecasts featuring their son and Commander Shepard as well as the third astronaut, Air Force Capt. Virgil I. Grissom. Captain Grissom. it w a s reported during the weekend, has been eliminated from the three-man team. Both Mr. and Mrs. Glenn thought their son looked a little older in the telecasts and both were quick to point out that he appearpd "to be balding more He has always been interested in flying and while attend- ing Muskingum College received his first flying instructions as part of a Navy training program. He made his first solo flight at New Philadelphia. Since then he has gained nationwide publicity, first as a Korean war pilot when he became known as the "Mig Mad Marine" and later when he streaked from California to New York, a distance of miles, in three hours. 23 minutes, eight seconds. In his parents' home is a small replica of the FSU-1 Crusader jet in which John, then Major Glenn, made the his- toric night on July 16. 1956. Glenn and his wife, the former Clara Sproat who was a school teacher in Cambridge before her marriage, are widely known in New Concord. On Sunday they attended services at Westminster United Presbyterian Church, where they are longtime members, and by coincidence, heard their pastor, the Rev. Gerald Wheat, deliver a sermon on "The Place of God in the Space Age." The Rev. Mr. Wheat, incidentally, was not aware when he preparH his text that it would be timed so close to the pro- posed flight.

The succession of top level meetings the fourth and fifth n 10 days indicated Kennedy ,vas concentrating on vital deci- sions about what to do next to preserve freedom in Laos and its neighbors. Monday's security council ses- sion was held as officials dis- closed that the United States was stepping up military aid to South Viet Nam, next door neighbor to Laos. Kennedy and his chief diploma- lie, military and intelligence ad- visers are considering a number of moves in case the Communists jlocfc a ceasefire in Laos. These include possible use of allied troops in Laos or South Viet some United Na- tions action. But U.S. officials remained tight-lipped to avoid tipping this country's hand. After the security council meet- ing, White House Press Secretary Pierre Salinger said only that the top-level policy group and "others who were there" received a brief- ing from the Joint Chiefs of Staff on current developments in south- east Asia. Asked whether the scheduling of another session Tuesday meant that any deadline for U.S. action in Laos had been postponed, Sal- inger said he had nothing more to say. In addition to the regular mem- bers, the security council meeting was attended by U.N. Ambassador Adlai E. Stevenson. The Story Of Laos World attention is focused on Laos, a small kingdom in South- eastern Asia in danger of being run over by the Communists. As a service to readers who would like to know about this nation, the Times Recorder will publish a four-part cartoon se- ries on Laos starting Wednes- day. Watch for this special feature, "The Land of a Million Ele- phants."
