The new U.S. satellite, nick- named OSO-1 was fired into orbit from Cape Canaveral Wednesday by a Thor-Dclta rocket. The name derives from Orbiting Solar Ob- servatory. Scientists hope that OSO-1 and several similar spacecraft will un- ravel many mysteries of the sun, how it influences weather, com- munications and other conditions solar radiation poses for human space travelers. Dr. Hugh Dryden, deputy ad- ministrator of the National Aero- nautics and Space Administra- tion, said OSO-1 is in many re- spects the most advanced satellite ever launched. "With Dryden declared, "scientific exploration of space enters a new phase." The space agency hopes to launch at least one OSO-type satellite a year to chart an en- tire 11-year sunspot cycle. erup- tions of thermonuclear energy im Successful Flight Cleared Problems HOUSTON, Tex. we can count one (orbital) flight as proof, John Glenn proved a lot of the problems we anticipated do not says astronaut Malcolm S.

Carpenter did not ela- borate, on the anticipated problems. Glenn, a Marine Corps lieuten- ant colonel, was the only-astro- naut missing at the conference, which continued today, with per- sonnel of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration. He is in Cape Canaveral, Fla., prepar- ing a detailed report on his Feb. 20 flight around the globe. Robert R. director of the NASA center being built here, said the Glenn flight revealed a few outstanding" Bungs 'to" 'be taken care of before the next flight. He gave malfunctioning de- vices as an example. Air Force Maj, Donald K. Slay- ton said he is looking forward to being the next astronaut to make an orbital flight. "1 don't have much to say about it he said. "I prob- ably will have more to say when I come back." Gilruth said the conference was to get the astronauts and man- agement up to date on projects Gemini and Apollo, which will follow the current Project Mer- cury. Gemini's plans include two-man spacecraft for orbital flights and rendezvous maneuvers with un- manned satellites in space. Apol- lo's ultimate objective is placing a spacecraft on the moon.

Reaction To Agreement Is Favorable WASHINGTON U.iit- ed States and 24 other nations have agreed to chop about 20 per cent from tariffs on a wide range of automobiles to Scotch whisky. And U. S. officials said America came out ahead 4 to 3 in the deal. First reaction to the agree- President Kennedy termed highly advantageous to the United favorable. U. S. automakers generally viewed it as a step in the right direction and a spokesman for the European Common Market said "This is a first step toward world liberalization and we must" rejoice about it." Most of the reciprocal tariff cuts will involve the United States and Western Europe's industrial countries. While the reduction on most items will be 20 per cent, few cases they range up to 25 per cent. On the list of major items af- fected are new automobiles, chemicals, drugs, electrical and industrial machinery, textiles. Scotch whisky, canned fruits, some steel products and glass- ware, t The United States claims it came out ahead 4 to 3 by figur- ing this way: The U.S. tariff re- ductions will involve billion of imports from the other 24 na- tions, while they have agreed to cut levies on: 91.6 billion of-U.S. goods. The figures were based on world.trade in 1960. President Kennedy told Con- gress Wednesday, ..in, announcing, the agreement, that in order to forestall a.threatened collapse in negotiations, he agreed last Sep- tember to. lowering certain U.S. tariffs below the levels the Tariff Commission had found necessary for the protection of American producers. If he hadn't, Kennedy said, the United States would have lost substantial trade in the long run and would have thrown a bar in the way to greater economic co- operation with Western Europe.1 The Wh'ite House said that in addition to gaining greater con- cessions than it granted, the Unit- ed States received a promise from the six-nation Common Mar- ket to resume talks soon on pro- posals to lower barriers against American farm imports.
