Circling Reds Snap '65 Gemini Record MOSCOW (AP) Soviet cos- monauts Andrian Nikfllayev ami Vitaly Sevastyanov set a space record for flight duration today by staying in earth nrbit for more than 13 days, 18 hours and 35 m mules. That was ihe record, sel in 1965, by U.S. astronauls Frank Borman and James A. Lovell in the Gemini 7 flight. Nikolayev and Sevastyanov, riding the Soviet Soyuz 9 space- ship, surpassed Ihe record at a.m. EOT and continued in orbit. There was no indication how much longer Ihey would Stay ii( space. The Soyuz 9 flig'nl is chiefly aimed at testing Ihe effects of extended space flight on human beings. The two cosmonauts carry out an extensive program of physical exercise and medi- cal'checks. All official reports on the So- yuz 9 trip so for have empha- sized lhal Ihe- cosmonauts are well and retain their capacity for work. ftesearch on extended space flighl, never altemplcd before by the Soviet Union, is essential for ils long-range plans lo put large spate stalioas in orbil.

Court Exempts WASHINGTON (AP) The Supreme Court today exempted from military service all young men who have strong moral or ethical objections to military long as their beliefs 'are deeply held and are not based on expediency. Interpreting Ihe draft law sec- tion that provides for conscien- tious objectors, Justice Hugo L. Black wrote: "That section ex- empts from mililary service all (hose whose consciences, spurred by deeply held moral, ethical, or religious beliefs, would give them no rest or peace if they allowed them- selves to become a pail of an in- slrumenl of war." The decision reverses the con- viction and three-year prison term of Alliolt Ashton Welsh II, a Los Angeles computer engi- neer who refused Army induc- tion. Justices, William 0. Douglas, William J. Brcnnan Jr., and Thurgood Marshall joined Black's opinion. Justice John M. Harlan supported the result, forming a five-man majority. Black said Welsh qualified for the exemption even though he did not base his plea 16 be spared from mililary duty on a direct belief in a supreme being. In facl, the justice noted, Welsh struck the word "reli- gious" from the C.O. application and characterized his beliefs as having been formed "by read- ing in the fields of history and sociology." In another ruling (he court held 8 to 0 today that Maryland may nol deny Ihe vole in stale and local elections to persons living on federal installations. The decision, given by Justice Apollo 13 Report Is Expected To Be Critical of Management By HOWARD BENEDICT AP Aerospace Writer WASHINGTON (AP) A spe- cial review board studying the near tragic Apollo 13 lunar mis- sion IMS finished its final report on the cause of the in-space ex- plosion that endangered the lives of Ihrea astronauts and ruined man's third attempt to walk on the.moon. Review board Chairman Ed- gar M. Corlright prepared Ihe findings, expected lo be critical of management shortcomings, for delivery today [p Dr. Thom- as 0. Paine, administrator of the National Aeronautics and Space Adminislration. The main thrust of today's re- port was an evaluation of how the explosion happened, where to place any blame and how to avoid the problem, in future flights. An earlier report by Corlright pinned Ihe oxygen tank explo- sion on the failure of two ther- mal switches he said were sub- jected lo an electrical overload during a test at Cape Kennedy two weeks before [he April 31 launch.

The blast drained their com- mand ship of oxygen and power and forced Ihe astronauts lo use the separate systems of their lu- nar module lo save their lives. The lunar ship, which was to have Iransporled I.ovell and Haisc to the moon, served -ns the astronauts' "lifeboat" for four harrowing days as they swept around the back of the moon and streaked back to a safe landing in Ihe Pacific Ocean. In his earlier report to news- men, Cortrighl listed this prob- able sequence of cvcnls leading to the explosion: a countdown test March 27, Ihe launch crew had difficulty draining liquid oxygen from Ihe tank, possibly because of a loose section in a filler sys- tem. In a procedure never be- fore attempted, technicians turned on a healer in the lank lo convert Ihe liquid to a gas lo vent iL overboard. skirl the heater, (he technicians applied 65 volls lo the circuit.

Thurgood Marshall, applies ev- idenlly In federal enclaves and installations in all states. Maryland had appealed to the courl from a precedent-setting opinion handed down by three federal judges in Baltimore fed- eral court in January 1963 on a suit brought by 12 of the 500 res- idents of Ihe National Institutes of Health (N1H) in Belhesda. The three judges ruled Mary- land (reals people at NIH as stale residents to such an extent it is a violation of the Htb amendment lo the U.S. Constitu- tion for Lhe stale to deny tbem Ihe vole. Affirming, Lhe Supreme Court said through Justice Marshall that NIH residents have a stake equal to that of other Maryland residents in their day-to-day af- fairs and in nearly every ballot issue. He noted that the federal workers are subject to state in- come, gasoline, sales and use taxes, to state unemployment and workmen's compensation laws, to stale courts, lo stale criminal laws and send their children to Maryland public schools. Marshall's opinion was deliv- ered for him by Justice Potter Slewart. Marshall is at home convalescing from pneumonia.

Brazilian Hostage Exchange Set for Diplomat's Release niO DF, JANEIRO (AP) _ A Brazilian airliner was readied lo fly 40 political prisoners lo Algeria today, and the release of kidnaped West German Am- bassador Ehrcnfried von Holle- bcn was expected soon after their arrival in North Africa. The flight lo Algiers awaited the arrival of z number of the prisoners from Juiz de Fora, about 100 miles north ol Rio dc Janeiro. Officials said the air- port Iherc was closed during the hours of darkness, .and those; who had been confined there were expected soon after dawn. The terrorists who kidnapped the 61-year-old diplomat Thurs- day night said he..would be re- leased unharmed as soon as newspapers' and television sla- lions relayed word of the prison- ers' arrival in Algeria. The Algerian government an- nounced today it has agreed to accept Ihe 40. Under a Brazilian law decreed last September afl- er the kidnaping of U.S. Ambas- sador C. Burke Elbrick, Ihe prisoners will lose Ihcir Brazil- ian citizenship as soon as tticy leave the country. Tension at the West German Embassy began to relax as Ihe government moved wilh dis- patch lo meet the kidnapers' de- mands. Jlrs. von Holleben, whose two sons from Germany have waited with her during Ihe days since her husband's abduc- lion, said she was "more cer- tain than ever" that her hus- band would be released safely. .4 The Brazilian government's action was in sharp contrast to lhal of the Guatemalan govern- ment when West German Am- bassador Karl von Spreti was kidnaped in Guatemala last March. That government re- fused to release political prison- ers as ransom, and von Spreti was murdered. However, -the Brazilian government had pie- viously released political prison- ers to ransom Ambassador El- brick and the Japanese consul in Sao Paulo. Von Holleben has sent three handwritten notes to his wife as- suring her that he is all right. The Kidnapers said in one of their notes that the diplomat was being Ircaled. "with dignl- A
