Ada Evening News, The (Newspaper) - July 23, 1962, Ada, Oklahoma How about using the thing in Andover, Maine to beam commercials into space when the Ttlstar isn't around, so that way they keep on going instead of being beamed back to earth.

In the first formal exchange of live television shows across the Atlantic, European viewers also may see: Part of a major league baseball game in Chicago, South Dakota's Mount Rushmore Me- morial, the .Statue of Liberty in New York harbor, San Francisco's Golden Gate, Niagara Falls and the Seattle World's Fair. Three hours later, if all goes well, American viewers will not have to leave their armchairs to see the art treasures of the Louvre in Paris, Michelangelo's paintings in the Vatican's Sistine Chapel, the Big Ben clock atop the Houses of Parliament, a glimpse of an opera in Rome and laplandcrs herding reindeer 50 miles below the Arctic Circle. The two programs will run at least 15 minutes each -and both will be televised in the United States by the 'three- major net- works, ABC, CBS and NBC. Brit- Venus Probe Fizzles; NASA Rushes Another CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. (AP) nation's space agency pushed ahead today with plans to launch a second spacecraft to the planet Venus while technicians and engineers probed the failure of the first attempt. The United States' initial effort to propel a vehicle to explore Venus failed early Sunday. The Atlas-Agena B booster rocket strayed off course and was de- stroyed nearly 100 miles above the Atlantic Ocean by the range safe- ty officer. The electronic signal that killed the rocket was flashed 290 seconds after launching. Flaming wreckage of the million-rocket and million-Mar- iner 1 payload plummeted into the sea. The spacecraft had been ticketed for a 139-day interplane- tary journey designed to take it miles of the cloud- shrouded Venus next Dec. 8. Even before data could be analyzed to determine exactly what went wrong, crews started preparing the launching pad for another Atlas-Agena B and the Mariner 2 payload. Time was the deciding factor in moving forward before data from the first shot had been completely In economic geography you learn that almost all countries touch the United States. (Copr. Gen, Fea.

The American program starts across the Atlantic at about 3 p.m. when Telstar is mak- ing its 123rd orbit of the earth.

The legal move follows in- ;egration leader Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s charge Jiat a few Southern federal udges are engaged in a con- spiracy, with political lead- ers to maintain segregation. William. Kunsfler, of New York, an attorney for the American Liberties Union, had a peti- ion ready for filing with U.S. Dist. Judge W. A. Bootle at Ma- con, 112 miles north of this south- west Georgia city. Seeks Injunction Kunstler, assigned to help in the Albany integration movement, said he hoped 'Bootle would nulli.

The present 50-day favorable period extends through Sept. 10. A minimum of 24 days is required to prepare for another firing and officials indicated the Mariner 1 failure probably will.add to that time while adjustments are made on the Atlas' first stage to assure the trouble is not repeated. The difficulty was in the Atlas. Preliminary information indicated a flight control problem that ap- parently pitched the rocket nose down instead of straight up, start- ing about 212 seconds after launching. The safety officer al- lowed the rocket to continue flying for an additional 78 seconds be- fore destroying it in the hope that the guidance system would cor- rect the error. Project officials are counting on a successful Venus shot in the next few weeks to provide valu- able information for more sophis- :icated .Mariners planned when the bright planet again is in aosition in' early 1964 and again n late 1965.

He's In A Batting Slump JFK Hopes To Pry Bill From Committee WASHINGTON Ken- nedy administration has revived its hopes of prying out of a Sen- ate-House conference committee a compromise bill to provide fed- eral aid for higher education If this can be and Sen. Hubert H. Humphrey, D- Minn., predicted today it can President Kennedy may improve the sagging batting average of his legislative program. In the weeks before a possible Labor Day adjournment, the ad- ministration apparently will be heavily engaged in a salvage op- eration aimed .at .nullifying.. thej Republican charge that a Demo- cratic president has failed to get any important accomplishment out of a Democratic Congress. In rebuttal, Kennedy obviously is going to be able to point to a new international trade bill on which the Senate Finance Com- mittee begins public hearings to- day. This measure, revised in the House before passage'there, has attracted bipartisan support But the President, needs more than this before he can do much pointing with pride to the record of-the Democratic-Congress which he will be compelled to defend in the November elections. If he imme- diate tax cut, it might be singled out as a.major achievement. But any request for such a tax reduc- tion carries with it a White House acknowledgment that the econ- omy is in the kind of difficulty that might be reflected in sweep- ing Republican gains in Novem- ber. It is not at all certain that Ken- nedy will seek a tax cut. Nor is it a foregone conclusion that.Con-j gress would -go along without the] kind of a battle over the-balanc- ing of spending and revenues that would lend weight to GOP "bud- get busting" charges. With his program of health care for the elderly buried, Kennedy's lieutenants 'feel they, need some kind of school aid legislation to prove the administration can win some advances in controversial domestic fields. They are .fighting in the Senate to resurrect some segments of his tight controls farm program which the House already has tried to consign to the grave. They have hopes'of getting a'House- passed postal rate increase through the. Senate also. But Humphrey, the assistant Democratic leader, said in an in- terview he regards it as -impera- tive that there be some action, in the school field. The House voted to authorize grants and loans to colleges of all kinds. The, Senate approved loans, but no grants, for classrooms, and libraries as well as scholarship payments.

The Federal Aviation Agency said the. big Britannia aircraft which originated in Vancouver, B.C., was en route to Sydney, Australia, and Auckland, New Zealand, via Honolulu when one of the engines apparently failed shortly after takeoff here. The craft left Honolulu Inter- national Airport with 29-passen- gers and 11 crewmen and returned about 43 minutes later1 after the pilot dumped fuel Pacific in preparation for the landing. D. J. Tierney, FAA spokesman, said the plane approached the runway for a normal landing on three engines at p.m. But then skidded into a mass of grad ing equipment nearby, the fuse- lage snapped and .the engines burst into flames. Wreckage was strewn over an area the size of a football .field. The condition of the survivors, who were taken to nearby Hick- ham Air Force Base Hospital, was not. immediately known. The FAA said the pilot notified its control tower he .was cutting one of the engines soon after take- off. He requested and was-granted permission to dump fuel for the emergency landtag, officials said. Tierney said when the aircraft approached the runway it sudden- ly veered to its left. Saskatchewan Doctor Strike May Be Ending SASKATOON, Saskatchewan Saskatchewan medical care dispute was expected to be settled today. Reliable sources said the prov- ince's striking doctors and the Socialist 'provincial government were on the verge of agreement after four days of negotiations. The key was draft legislation. to amend the medical care insurance law. Most Saskatchewan doctors boy- cotted the medical program by closing their offices when the law went into operation July 1. The law set up a compulsory, prepaid 'medical care insurance plan for all persons. The Sas- katchewan College of Physicians and Surgeons said it exerted too much government control over doctors.. The college is the'gov- erning body of Saskatchewan doc- tors. It was understood the new draft legislation 'embodied most of the jrinciples outlined in a settlement proposal made last Wednesday by he college president, Dr. H. D.j Dalgleish.
