Rampaging Congo Troops Add Deaths LEOPOLDVILLE. the Congo troops .once loyal to Antoine Gizenga were re- ported Saturday to have killed five more Europeans in eastern provinces as the pro-Communist leader returned to Leopoldville under U.N. guard to face possible trial. The latest killings by the lead- erless troops were reported by re- liable sources at Shangugu' in the neighboring trust .territory of Ru- anda-Urundi to have taken' place' Monday at Kindu in Kivu Prov- ince.

Some of the same troops are believed to have been responsible for the reported machine-gun slaying and mutila- tion of 19 Roman Catholic mis- sionaries at Kongolo in northern Katanga Province on Jan. 1.

Hffa 'as Teamsters Union boss, won a reversal Saturday of his conviction of evading more than in federal income taxes. He had been sentenced to five years in prispn and fined released on bond pending outcome of his appeal. The U.S. Court of Appeals re- manded the case to District Court for a new trial but upheld Beck's conviction on charges of filing false lax returns for his union, For that he .got five years m prison and a fine.

The appeals court decision pointed out that Beck's income in- cluded "an amazing series of em- bezzlement." In 1945. the appeals court had decided embezzled funds were not taxable. This was reversed by the U.S. Supreme Court May 15, 19G1 in the case of Eugene C. James, a Chicago union official. The high court ruled that embezzled money is taxable. But Beck was convicted two years Feb. 19, 1959 so the James ruling could not apply in his case.

His brother, Wiiburn Cartwright, now a member of the Corporation Commission, has entered the race for lieutenant governor.

Gen. Fea. Corp.' Astronaut Prepares For Earth-Girdling Flight Into Outer Space CAPE CANAVERAL. Fla. (AP) United States will try to rocket astronaut John H. Glenn Jr.. on an earth-girdling, mile journey through the lifeless blue-black of space next week, perhaps Wednesday. Basically, the purpose of the bullet-like flight atop a pound thrust Atlas missile is this: To add to mankind's meager fund of space knowledge in order lo determine whether earthlings ultimately safely to the moon and beyond. To find out what happens to a man in space. Glenn on his flight will do certain exercises, eat and! spin himself about to see what happens to his sense of balance. Everything that man can do to the success of the flight and Glenn's safety has been done.' Even now an armada of men aboard 24 ships, including three aircraft carriers, is being deployed around the world to keep track of the red-haired, quick- smiling Glenn on'his flight, and to rescue him when necessary. In making the trip the balding, 40-year-old Marine lieutenlant colonel will follow .a flight .path that is planned to take him three times around the world at alti- tudes varying from 100 to -150 miles. Glenn will pass at miles an hour through a fantastic realm in which an unprotected man fac- ing the sun could bake as in a slow oven at 248 degrees fahren- heit, while the flesh on his back- side froze and. became as -brittle and breakable as glass at minus 157. degrees. Glenn's great speed will keep him in orbit over the.4% hours of the projected flight. The prin- ciple is that of centrifugal force, balancing the tug of ...gravity, ..the same principle kids use to keep I a rock swinging at the end of a' string. The balance of centrifugal force and gravity is what makes Glenn weightless. If all goes as planned, Glenn will pass the sunshine of Launch Pad 14 to the blue-black of space in minutes. At lift-off he will experience a force 7te times that of gavity and thus weigh for a moment 7Vj times his normal 165 pounds. Glenn will be able to see the earth through a small window and with' a periscope. The stars will appear as dis- tant.' round orbs minus the' twin- kle they seem to have from earth, a twinkle caused by the diffusion of light through the dusty atmosphere.

As he circles the earth, Glenn's progress will be monitored by 13 tracking stations stretching across the Atlantic, Africa, tiie Indian Ocean, Australia, the Pacific and the United States, Canada and Mexico. Some' 500 technicians man these stations. Aboard the capsule, Glenn will have calories of and mixed vegetables similar to the stuff babies toothpaste tubes. He'll also-have six pounds of water.

Glenn will travel strapped to a contoured couch made of a spe- cial crushable honeycomb materi- al -bonded to a -Fiberglas- shell lined with rubber padding. .-Attached to .bis- body medical sensors to register pulse, respiration, body temperature and heart action. Throughout the flight Glenn will be able to communicate with the tracking stations by radio. Glenn will be almost surrounded by 100 lights, fuses, controls, switches and dis- plays which tell him what is going on and where he is. A 16-mm camera will take con- tinuous pictures of the control consoles and another will register Glenn's reactions. Through his periscope he will have a 360-dcgree view of the horizon and he can adjust the view through the lens to inspect an area of earth as small as 80 miles in diameter or as large as miles in diameter. The flight can be terminated by Glenn or from the ground at any time. If he.makes only one orbit, he will land. 500 miles east of Bermuda. After two orbits he will hatch 'and be raised by a cable into the helicopter overhead.
