Apr a government scientist today challenged critics who want More emphasis on space weapons development saying the present . Space program is laying a Broad base for both scientific and military operations. Homer e. Newell director of space science for the National aeronautics and space administration said a those who argue that we should dispense with the frills of science and space exploration and concentrate on the necessities of military development forget that we can to really say what the military necessities in space will be and it would be Foolhardy to pretend that we in a speech prepared for an artificial satellite conference at Virginia polytechnic Institute Here Newell said a we do not wish to develop a Maginot line in space Only to have it flanked by forces of greater flexibility. We need to develop in a Broad Way our space capability so that we will have the ability to move in any direction required by future events to meet any threats along whatever lines might Newell a defense of the space program came at a time when Many defense officials and some congressmen Are taking a closer look at military needs in space. Major military space efforts Are aimed at development of reconnaissance satellites by the air Force communications satellites by the army and navigation satellites by the Navy. The air Force is training astronauts for nasal a two Man project gemini Orbital and rendezvous flights. Later air Korce astronauts will Fly gemini capsules modified for military mis predicting fall hoopers new sport by Cynthia Lowry a television radio w Riter Hollywood apr the favorite indoor and poolside sport of this show business town now As always in late summer is predicting next seasons hit television shows. The Community is full of self proclaimed experts on the subject and the most fascinating aspect of the game is that almost anybody can be right. After two weeks of visiting television sets talking with producers directors stars executives and of course press agents i have been assured that every new series encountered undoubtedly will be a hit. For what preseason talk is Worth there a a lot about the incoming Abc Bill Dana comedy series. By coincidence it will occupy the sunday night spot vacated by a Ensign of Toole a which received the same kind of talk last year at this time but survived for Only one season. Cd so a my favorite Martian also is a sunday evening entry and the subject for particularly enthusiastic predictions. This is unusual in that it will attempt to marry fantasy and satire in a comedy. It concerns the adventures of a visitor from another planet who arrives equipped with built in antennae and assorted Powers including ability to become invisible at will. The theory is that the kiddies will enjoy the magic and the adults appreciate the satire and everybody will be Happy. Abc and Many of the Crystal Ball gazers Are expecting interesting response to a a burkes a Law a an action series done in a Debonair and sophisticated manner. It stars a millionaire Man about town who is also a police detective. A number of shows have been beset by production troubles.

Slons and the Dyna soar manned space glider. Advocates of a Strong military program think the United states should be working on spacecraft to spy on enemy satellites and destroy them if they Are carrying nuclear bombs. Some say this nation should develop orbiting nuclear bombs of its own. Them up at any step. Some Are killed by communist Border guards. What drives people to Gamble their lives in order to leave their Homes it might sound strange to american ears but in a sure the chief reason is the longing for Freedom to think and do what one wants. The simple freedoms that americans take for granted Are Worth a life to Many East germans. It is simply that after a while you can to breathe any More. You Are too restricted. Your ideas count for nothing of they do not agree with those of the communists. Your individual wishes Are ignored. A persons individuality and Freedom count for nothing. This is what people learn to hate. This is Why they leave. What did i personally dislike most i think it was the Way children were treated. Probably More parents leave East Germany for the Sake of their children than for any other reason. I clearly remember aug. 13, 1961. For years my husband and i Felt we should stay in East Germany. One has a responsibility to ones Home and people and problems Are not solved by running away. But we had finally decided to flee and our two children had already gone to the West. We planned to follow after a Short vacation in a health resort. There we heard the news of aug. 13. Our hearts Sank. Our escape route was blocked. It took nearly two years to find a Way out.
