By a 47-45 vote, the Assembly Bykovky was in his fifth day ______i _ in snafp. Miss in her Cosmonauts Are Down and Safe, Russ Announce MOSCOW (AP) The Soviet Union's man-woman space duet returned safely to earth with a record 82 orbits and she with 49, landing in virgin lands area the Soviet news agency Tass said. Lt. Col. Vatery Bykovsky and his blonde, dimple-chinned partner, Vslentina Tereshkova, ended flights in their separate space ve- hicles, Tass said. approved a Republican-sponsored bill which Democratic Gov. John W. Reynolds already has said he will veto. Three minor amendments were adopted by the Assembly and the measure was returned to the Sen- ate for action on them. Reynolds and Democratic law- makers object to the measure be- cause it holds Milwaukee Coun- ty's Assembly representation to 24 seats. Democrats contend the slate's largest county is entitled to 26 seats on the basis of popula- tion. The governor already has ini- tiated a State Supreme Court ac- tion to force reapportionment of Senate and Assembly districts. He has said it is obvious that Repub- licans will not give Milwaukee County 26 seats. Huher Promises Bailie Assembly action on the bill was swift and took only an hour. Dem- ocratic Floorleader Robert Huber of West Allis said the bill's pas- sage is "only round one." He accused Republicans of "sending a bill to a veto and at the same time establishing a rec- ord of having done something in an attempt to buffalo the courts into settling for something less than what the constitution pro- vides." The final vote was largely along party lines. The single Democrat voting for the measure was Vin- cent Malhews of Waukesha. Un- der the bill, Waukesha would gain two Assembly seats for a total of four. One of the two seats made available by enlarging districts in the northeast section of the slate. in space, Miss Tereshkova in her third. Tass said Valentina landed about 380 miles northeast of Kara- ganda, a coal mming center in the central Asian republic of Kaz- akhstan; and Bykovsky about 330 miles northwest. Both in Good Shape "The cosmonauts are feeling Tass reported. "The flight has ended successfully." Loudspeakers carried the news to joyous Moscovues. Television and radio stations also flashed the word. Bykovsky landed at p.m. and Valentina came down about three hours earlier at a.m., Moscow time, Tass said. Bykovsky went L.to space at 3 p.m. last Friday, while Valentina was launched at p.m. Sun- day.

Northern counties would be somewhat realigned to make available additional representa- tion for Waukesha. Three Republicans voted against the bill.' They were Paul Dailey of Elcho, Merrill Stal- baum of Waterford and Fred Reger of Merrill. After passing the GOP bill, the Assembly voted 52-34 to kill a Democratic sponsored measure thai would have given Milwaukee Counly 26 assembly seats. Changes in Outdoor Plan In other action the assembly passed legislation to implement the million outdoor resource program in 1963-fi5 and make sweeping changes in the admin- istration of the 10-year plan. The measure, which outlines spending of about S10 million in the next two years, would abolish the priority list of projects and the Slate Recreation Committee. Opponents of the measure, led by Norman Anderson, D-Madi- son. contended that to turn the entire program over to the Con- servation Commission would lead to a diversion of funds from land acquisition to adminis t r a t i v e costs. The program is financed by a penny-a-pack cigarette lax and was a major accomplishment of the administration of Gov. Gay- lord Nelson, a Democrat. Governor on Committee The Recreation Committee has guided the program since its start in 1961. The committee comprises Hie governor, the heads of the Stale Departmcnl of Public Wel- fare and the Highway and representatives of the Slate Soil and Conservation Service find the Department of Resource De- velopment.
