Ada Evening News, The (Newspaper) - August 15, 1962, Ada, Oklahoma Soviet Astronauts Land After Record- ing Space Trips MOSCOW Soviet Un- ion's space twins came down to- day with bullseye landings.in Ka- zakhstan after zipping around the world in weightless orbit for a to- tal of almost three million miles. The leader was aloft for nearly four full days and his flanker for nearly three. Jubilant Russians hailed their record-breaking feats as a great stride toward manned shots at the moon and other planets and to- ward rocket transport within tiie 20th century for. travelers on the shrinking earth. "Cosmos! Cosmos! shouted young Russians1 in Mos- cow's Red Square. Waves of en- thusiasm swept the nation. Maj. Andrian Nikolayev and LL Col. Pavel Popovich, who were shot aloft in separate satellites 'a day apart last weekend, landed six -minutes apart in the virgin lands area south of Karaganda, Kazakhstan, miles southeast of Moscow, the Soviet news agen- cy Tass reported. "Both cosmonauts feel a government .bulletin announced. Radio Moscow said a special team doctors, friends and journalists welcomed them. Baths and shaves appeared to be their first needs: "The scientific and technical tasks of the unprecedented flight were solved completely." a broad- cast announcement said.' It added that the space men demonstrated both extreme courage- and "the high moral qualities of Soviet man." Both brilliantly fulfilled- their task, said the-Soviet news agency Novosti; and "for the next few days win remain under observa- tion of doctors' to study the influ- ences of prolonged space-flight on the human-organism." Tass said Nikolayev landed his Vostok III at a.m. Moscow time and Popovich landed in Vos- tok IV at a.m., "in direct proximity with the planned points of landing." The area is that from which past space shots have been launched. It is an area that was notorious in the 1930s as the land to which Communist officials banished hun- dreds of thousands of peasants who refused to surrender their farms, to the collectives. Secrecy still veiled the exact mode.'of landing.-The astronauts could have come down within the capsules or by separate para- U.S. space craft, braked by rockets for descent, have al] made water landings. The flights lasted just 95 min- utes short of four days for Niko- layev, who blasted .off' at a.m. Saturday, and just 61 min- utes short of three days for Popovich, .who went up at a.m. Sunday. The Communist party Central Committee, the Supreme ..SoViet Presidium and the Soviet govern- ment in a joint message said .Ni- kolayev had .circled the earth more than times, covering a distance of more .than 1.6 million miles. The message said Popo- vich made more than 48 orbits for a distance of nearly 1.24 mil- lion miles. They far outdistanced the time and distance of any preceding space flight. Soviet astronaut Gherman Tifov. set the previous record with bis- ,25-hour, 17-orbit flight on Augr 6, 1961. .longest traveling spacemen, Lt. Col. John H: Glenn Jr. and LL Cmdr. Mal- colm Scott Carpenter, each made three: orbits- this year! The' world's first spaceman, Soviet astronaut Yuri Gagarin, made one orbit lasting 108 minutes on April 12, 1961.' A hero's welcome and world acclaim awaited Nikolayev, 32, and Popovich, 31, whom Soviet newspapers have dubbed heavenly twins." Red Square was being readied for a. mammoth welcome.for the two new heroes, Sunday, which is- Soviet air force day. Stratford School Hires 4 Additional Teachers, Page Six SOUU1 Ol.

Harry Hulett Jr., Oklahoma City, engineer, indicated he would have assessment maps and final plans ready for this council meeting. If he does, the council will probably take offi- cial action which will set the district in motion into the pro- test period. It will be the fifth district formed under the resolution method of paving and will be the largest ever offered al- though some of the streets will undoubtedly bite the dust in the protest period. All of the streets in the district were in- cluded at the request of some property owner.____________ As now outlined, the district includes: Gardenia, Francis east to end of street; Francis, Corona to Arlington Blvd.; Highland, Sixth to Arlington; Center, Ninth to Tenth; Fifteenth, Ash to Town- send and Mississippi to Hope; Stonewall, Fifteenth' to Six- teenth; Mayfair Way, Arlington to Woodland Drive; Seven- teenth, Country Club Road to Morrison Drive; First, Johnston to Cherry; Second, Johnston to Cherry; Fourth, Hickory to Ash; Sixth, Broadway to Constant; Seventh, Cherry to Townsend.

Marshals Go Home, Spy Stays Abroad LONDON U.S. mar- shals handed their revolvers to an airline pilot today and left for New York without Robert A. Soblen, the fugitive spy they had been as- signed to accompany back to the United States. An appeal to Britain's High Court against a government de- portation order and other legal moves may take a month or two to settle. Soblen, now in the hospi- tal wing of Brixton Prison, will re- main in Britain. Marshals Joseph McShane and Joseph Waiseilewski traveled on a regular commercial flight. They gave the crew their sidearms for safekeeping. McShane was accompanying So- blen aboard an Israeli El Al air- liner July 1 when the 61-year-old psychiatrist cut himself with a steak knife and was removed to a London hospital for treatment. Soblen is trying to keep from being returned to the United States to serve a life sentence for pass- ing wartime secrets to the Soviet Union. He jumped bail and fled to Israel, which expelled him as an illegal immigrant be- cause he arrived on a bogus pass- port. Soblen is said to suffer from leukemia, and his attorneys said Tuesday that he is in excruciating pain. American sources said there was no conclusive proof that So- blen was on the verge of death.

James Summerlin disqual- ified himself. Summerlin told Dist. Judge John Q. Adams he took the ac- tion because of allegatkons and ob- jections which might arise from some persons who might come un- some persons who might come under scrutiny by the jury. Sum- merlin is originally from Inola. Claremore lawyer Ralph Brai- rard was named to work with the jury in Summerlin's place. Adams recessed the jury until Sept. 14 to give Brainard time to acquaint himself with the records in Summerlin's office concerning the Inola school district and the handling of its finances. Millions Would Help Out State Program OKLAHOMA CITY way director Frank Lyons said to- day Oklahoma round gear up and take advantage of an extra million of federal road money be- ing released for the state. Lyons said the interstate road program in Oklahoma could be "greatly accelerated" if more fed- eral funds are provided immedi- ately. He said work on engineering plans and specifications would stepped up quickly after official word comes from Washington. "We would try to get ready right after the first of the year and greatly accelarate the interstate program on 140 east of Oklahoma he said. "It also would have some effect on the crosstown expressway in Oklahoma City as well as all ol the expressways in Tulsa Red Fork, Crosstown and Skelly Drive." The state Highway Commission has asked the Federal Bureau of Roads to move the 135 alignment slightly to the east, running east instead of west of Pauls Valley. Plans on this section cannot be drawn until the route is definite. He said 135 north of Oklahoma City is virtually completed and said a windfall now would not cause any change in plans for completing 140 west of Oklahoma City. tionment petition to the U. S. Supreme Court- Norman Reynolds attorney for the-petition group, filed tition with 'the court charging that OLG has failed to post a bond protecting his clients against loss pending the appeal. The state court last month up- held validity of the petition so it could be put to a vote of the peo- ple. However, it stayed the order on request of Oklahomans for Local Government, who said "they would appeal. OLG was told to post a bond in favor of the "appellee." Reynolds said the bond was made out in the name of Secretary of State William N. Christian "who is not properly a party here- to."

Fur Flies In Senate Over Bill Morse, Pastore Hurl Charges In Angry Exchange WASHINGTON (AP) Two Democratic senators on opposite sides of the pri- vate vs. public, ownership battle over a space commu- nications system tangled in a heated clash today. Sens. John 0. Pastore, D-R.I., and Wayne Morse, D-Ore., shouted, angrily at each other in a dispute touched off by a proposed civil rights amendment to the administration's satel- lite communications bill. "I'll take you on on civil rights any Morse declared, ad- vancing toward Pastore. "Any time, any where, any Pastore shouted right back. Each senator had his right arm outstretched, pointing directly at the other. Pastore is the floor manager for the bill, which would set up a pri- vate, government-regulated corpo- ration to own and portion of'V glob'ar'coinmuhica- satellites as relay stations. Morse is one of the leaders ot the government-ownership advo- cates, who suffered a series ol defesits Tuesday starting with a 63-27 vote to choke off their fili- buster by invoking the Senate's debate-limitation rule. Long Time Coming It was the first time in 35 years that the Senate has invoked this rule which limits each senator to a total of one hour's speaking time. Morse also is one of the authors of an amendment to ban racial discrimination in employment by the proposed satellite corporation and its contractors. Soon after today's Senate ses- sion started, Sen..Paul H. Doug- las, D-m., said he regretted that Pastore: had served notice he would move to table and thus kill the civil rights amendment. Words Fly Pastore popped up to say that Morse, when he was managing a federal aid to education bill last year, had followed precisely the same procedure when a civil rights amendment was offered. After the two senators subsided, Douglas went on. to defend his vote against cloture. Seven amendments to the bill, providing for a private, govern- ment-regulated corporation to own and operate the U.S. portion of a space communications "system, were tabled Tuesday by -votes ranging from 74-15 to 63-27. A Monopoly? The bill's opponents contend the bill would create a private monop- oly dominated by the American Telephone and Telegraph Co. anc would.be a gigantic giveaway ol the taxpayers' investment in the government space program. Most of them favor government owner- ship.

The commission said that in view of the Soviet Union's latest feat in putting twin space-vehicles into orbit it is more necessary than ever to maintain labor peace on the nation's missile and space sites and research center. Julius Kuczma, the commission's executive secretary, urgently requested President Gordon Freeman of the In- ternational Brotherhood of Electrical CIO, and President Neal Haggerty of the AFL-CIO Building and Construction Trades Department to order local union officials at Huntsville to halt picketing activi- ties. Are Idle The picketing against a subcontractor has idled virtual- ly all of the building trades employes at Redstone Arsenal, which, among- other projects, is working on facilities for the first U- S. moon shot.

Mail Robbers Escape; Millions Could Be Gone RANDOLPH, Mass. (AP) -A well-rehearsed gang- armed with submachine guns robbed a U.S. mail truck Tuesday, night ot an estimated to million. If the larger figure proves correct it would top- the Brink's robbery in Boston in 1950. Eight men, using at least four cars, are believed to have taken part in the robbery. The actual loot figure could not be learned immediately as the money was en route from central Cape Cod banks in 15 sealed pouch- es to the Federal Reserve Bank in Boston. State Police Detective Lt. Joseph Simmons made the estimate. Postal inspectors said it would be hours after banks opened before a more accurate figure could be giv- en. Chief Postal Inspector William F. White said it was impossible to disclose, immediately, develop- ments in the' case. He said the investigators were so busy there was no. -time to assemble any statement on progress. Leo Loughlin, special agent in charge of the Boston FBI- office said, likewise, he had no informa- tion to make public. The robbery was a professional job executed with cool efficiency. One holdup man wore a police jbaum of Buffalo, N.Y. They uniform. All wore white gloves. The truck was hijacked on the northbound lane .of Route 3 in Plymouth and later abandoned here, 25 miles north. The-robbers blocked off a lane-several miles back with detour signs at the nearest exit This forestalled some motorists from driving onto the holdup scene. FBI agents said the method used was known to be favored, by two men high on the FBI "most-want- ed" list.They said the technique was similar to-that used in pre- vious holdups by Bobby Wilcoxon of Duke, Okla., and Albert Nuss- robbed two New York banks. Last May, an Abington1 police- man was shot by a motorist who resembled Nussbaum.' The man was never found. There were reports that a red and white-'-car with a girl 'at: the wheel was seen stopped beside'the mail truck on Route 123.. Patrick Schena, one of the two guards on the truck, gave this account: "They first stopped us on Route: 3 near, the bypass. A car went by at 80 miles an hour. We were do-- ing about .45. We saw the car stop in front of us and a man in a po- lice uniform got out and waved the back door and threw some of his arms over his head to stop us. I stopped- the truck. "The next thing I knew there was a man coming on either, side of. the truck, pointing what looked like machine-guns at us. "Theyordered us-to-throw down' ourguns and: we did. They told us to open the cage which led to the back. We opened it. They ordered us to get.in the back .of the truck.' "The man dressed as a police- man and another man joined the two with the guns and they tied us up and made us lie down on the floor. "They took our keys and opened the money bags to another person, who put them into a car. "The car drove off and a man dressed as a policeman started driving the inail truck off with u: in it.: I don't .know- how far we went, one of the men -got out and took some more money bags and put them in another car.

The .witnesses, who watched across barbed wire fences from West Berlin, thought all three were members of the East Ger- man Communists' border guard. One theory was that the man was killed while trying to distract attention of guards as .refugees tried to get through the fence. About 200 yards away, a hole in Jie fence was being, mended by East German guards. Another the- ory was that he was a guard try- ing to escape himself. West Berlin police said the tow- er had at least six bullet holes in the beams. Attention of West Berlin police was directed to the tower when they heard 15 shots at a.m. Merchants Set Parking Meet -Retail merchants meet at noon Thursday, in the Aldridge Hotel in a special "chamber." meeting.
