It was the first time the two powers had launched space vehicles so close to one another in time. The Russians said their newest Sputnik, Cosmos III, carried scientific instruments to continue the Soviet pro- gram of outer space exploration and a multichannel radio telemetric system to relay information back to 6 The announcement by the Soviet'news agency, Tass, gave no indication thai x there was a man aboard Presumably the satellite was unmanned. "The radio telemctric informa lion received .from the satellite shows that the instruments are functioning Tass said Cosmos in was the third Soviet 'Brain Injury' Ruins Test Of Mooncraft CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. (AP) mooncraft with an injured brain tumbled through space to- day toward an almost useless col- lision with the moon after scien- tists abandoned futile efforts to awaken it from its coma. The 730-pound silver and gold craft, Ranger 4, will zip by the leading edge of the moon early Thursday and crash at about a.m. on its hidden backside, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration says. The deeply disappointed direc- tor of NASA's jet propulsion labo- ratory. William H. Pickering, said: "It's kind of fun, though, to hit the backside. It's not everyone can do that." In Pasadena, Calif., a spokes- man for the Jet Propulsion Labo- ratory, which made the space- craft, said there's a longshot chance it may not impact. Calculations indicate it will skim by the moon's leading- edge at a height of 900 miles, then'hook- in for a landing on.the backside. Should it not impact, trackers will pick it up when it emerges, from behind the moon. In this event, it would go into an eliptical orbit around both the earth and moon. The laboratory gave these fig- ures: estimated range at p.m. EST, miles, speed miles an hour; at p.m. miles, m.p.h. The craft's speed is gradually slowed by the earth's gravity until it completes nine-tenths of its jour- ney, then moon gravity takes over and it speeds up until impact. Impact is expected to occur 63.9 hours after liftoff, at 13.66 de- grees south latitude on the moon, 228.97 degrees east longitude. Ranger 4 was lifted aloft by a (Continued on Two) Deadline Nears For Absentee Votes In Primary The deadline is nigh for absen- tee voters in the upcoming pri- mary and there seems to be some misunderstanding of one phase of that election. Friday is the deadline for secur- ing and returning absentee bal- lots. The county election board office at the courthouse closes at 5 p. m. Absentee ballot applications may be secured in person or by mail, but the ballots must be re- turned by mail. They are avail- able until 5 p. m. Friday at the county election board. The misunderstanding has to do with the health department bond election. The bond question will be on the Tuesday ballot, but not all taxpayers may vote on it. Since ad valorem taxpayers are the only ones affected by the bond is- sue, they are the only -voters eligible to decide it. Any eligible voter who pays real estate, personal or intangible taxes may vote on the question. I satellite to be launched since March 16 after a long period of Soviet inactivity in space. Cosmos I was launched on March -16 and Cosmos II on April 6. Announced aims of the new Soviet program of space research j include investigation of radiation' belts and meteorites around the earth and the dangers they may hold for space travelers. Tass said first estimates showed Cosmos III was close to its planned, course and orbiting the globe every 93.8 minutes. It said the orbit's inclination to the plane of the equator was 48 degrees 59 minutes, its farthest distance from the earth 448 miles and its closest 142 .miles. Today's session or the 'Supreme Soviet, the Soviet Union's parlia- ment, recessed early so the dele- gates could hear the announce- ment of the new sputnik. News of the American moon shot was withheld in Moscow until after the dramatic break in Soviet radio programs to announce the launching of the Russian satellite. Forty minutes later Tass told of the American shot in a 50-word dispatch from New York. Two Teen-Agers Faces Charges For Burglary Two teen-agers were charged here Monday with second degree burglary and another is awaiting arraignment. They are accused breaking and entering Pickett School, six miles west of Ada, last Thursday night. Charged were Larry Henderson 18, and Paul Wadlow, 18. Another boy.' 19-years-old, is still' being held in county jail. Officers said the latter youth has a previous charge pending and could be filec on as a second and subsequenl offender. 10 Pages 5 CENTS WEEKDAY, 10 CENTS SUNDAY State Election Aide Charges Abuse Of Absentee Vote Laws One-Third Of Normal Mclntosh County Vote's Already Cast OKLAHOMA CITY abssntee ballot laws enacted as a result of the 1956 Wagoner.

The building, Albert said, represents "a bet by Uncle Sam that Atoka's future will be bigger than its past." The congressman pre- sented Atoka postmaster Kenneth Fahrny with flag that had been flown over the Capitol and over the headquarters of the postal department in Washington. Emcee for the ceremony was Harvey Bertis Jr.; the Atoka High School band made the music. The new square foot building was built by Commander Construction Co., Oklahoma City, and leased to the government. Included in the program was presentation of a certificate of appreciation to retiring postal employe D. H.- Rounsaville.
