(NEWS Staff space crews Eisenhower Urges No Rush Efforts For Flight CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. (AP) technicians, racing a new deadline, worked today to assume astronaut John H. Glenn Jr. a foolproof oxygen supply when he vaults into orbit. As they replaced two key parts in the oxygen system, an appar- ently unruffled Glenn paced his own preparations for his rocket ride about the earth now planned, hopefully, for Saturday. New Equipment The National Aeronautics and Space Administration said late Monday the fourth postponement of this first orbital flight by an American was caused by trouble in the all-important oxygen sys- tem in the spacecraft. The technicians, working on the capsule atop a mighty silver Atlas rocket, were installing a new hose and a new device which reg- ulates the oxygen flow into the astronaut's helmet. Checks Needed NASA officials declined to say how long it would take to repair the oxygen system. After that job is done, the technicians must make painstaking checks to be certain the trouble has been licked. NASA spokesmen refused to speculate how much more of a delay would be required if the shot cannot meet its Saturday target date. Diet Changed Glenn, 40, a Marine lieutenant colonel, altered his prcflight rou- tine in one temporarily abandoned a low-waste diet to he shifted on Sunday in an- ticipation of a takeoff Wednesday morning. His day Monday was a full one. Wearing his silver-coated pres- sure suit. Glenn "flew" a simu- lated 12 miles to the hospital at Patrick Air Force Base, There, he underwent the first half of a detailed prcflight physical. Doc- tors gave him brain wave tests, checked his eyes, ears, nose and throat and examined his heart. Physical On Thursday, Glenn take the other half of an exhaustive physical which NASA officials said is part of the routine planned for this Right. The space agency hopes Glenn will be able to make three trips around the earth, at an altitude between 100 and 150 miles. Each circuit would last about 90 min- utes. This will depend on the time his rocket blasts off from this space- port. The determining factor is the amount of Jaylight available for the efforts to recover the cap- sule after it returns from space and lands in the Atlantic.

Eisenhower urged today that top military and civilian leaders be encouraged to speak out against the dangers of international communism. Eisenhower offered this advice in a statement sent to a special Senate investigating committee, and made pub- lic as it opened hearings on charges the Pentagon "muz- zles" anti-Communist speeches by military leaders.

The pictures were expected to prove that the young pilot was on a spy mission. The Italian Defense Ministry in a communique Monday said a "final judgment on the nature of the episode" could not be given yet. But it said there were "indi- cations of a true and proper case of aerial espionage" which needed only to be "further substanti- ated." One high Italian government of- ficial went farther. "We can say now that the mis- sion of the Bulgarian aircraft was he said. "We expect to state flatly in the next few days that the plane was flying a spy mission."
