Brig. Gen. Thomas Stafford, the Apollo commander for the joint flight, “wished them every success,” Reilly said. “The flight program of thc Soyuz 14 spaceship envisages joint experiments with the orbital scientific station Salyut 3,” the Tass report said. The launch was the Kremlin’s first manned space shot since two cosmonauts made an eight-day flight last December. Rival to Skylab There was no immediate official word how long the cosmonauts would remain aloft. Boris Petrov, chairman of thc Intercosmos Council, said Wednesday the Soviets did not plan a “prolonged flight.” The Salyut program is similar to America’s successful Skylab program, climaxed last winter when three Apollo astronauts docked with a space station for ..“Forty years ago I operated said the course was plagued by in one of those joints that get organizational problems and people to hand over their equipment breakdowns, money,” said Adolph Silvers of Dr. James Bax. head of the Chicago. “I don't know how health and welfare department, they revived that racket.”    said all programs placing stress Silvers, who gives his age as on youthful participants have “past 70,” was in Cedar Rapids been suspended He iaid he per-visiting his mother-in-law when sonally did not believe the proJ track in 1959 In that year, 22 4 accepting y< their vehicle lost pressure.

"This is the first time I have ever seen Dr. Kissinger sitting still.” By Tom Fruehling After little more than a week of operation, the Cedar Rapids-based I* a r k Reserva- t i o n System is “popular beyond all expectations,” accord i n g to vice-president James Rossie. In fact, the orginal staff of 21 has been expanded to HO, Rossie said, and there is still a problem in the handling of the telephone and mail reservations. Lots oi Publicity “Thc number of busy signals JMT hour has been cts high as 7,500.” Rossie commented The service has two telephone numbers with a total of five available lines. “We thought when we started that we would have to advertise, but needless to say that has not been necessary,” he continued. Some of the publicity resulted from an incorrect phone number issued by the National P a r k Service before the operation was established This, Rossie said, also caused a major headache Changed Number The number appearing in the press release was actually the number for the Dearborn Brass Co in Cedar Rapids. / Rossie said the firm received so many calls of inquiry about park reservations that Northwestern Bell had to change its number, at a considerable expense. In addition to changing company stationery and other materials, Rossie said, he understands that 3.500 Dearborn Brass customers had to be no titled of the switch. Having received as many as IO.(MMI calls per day, the reservation service is set to expand next year. Rossie said reservations are expected to be taken for state and private parks, in additon to the 21 national parks now handled. Larger Quarters Also, Rossie continued, the company is going to be forced to move into larger quarters that are now available at 105 Tenth street NE. Other changes now in effect include the policy to take no telephone reservation requests more than IO days in advance and limiting confirmation only lo holders of Bank American! or Master Charge credit cards.
