(AP) The Gemini 9 astronauts rode their tiny spaceship to a near-perfect safe landing in the Atlantic Ocean today, climaxing a sensational, often-troublesome flight highlighted by Eugene A. Cernan's record space walk. Astronauts Thomas P. Stafford and Cernan made the most accurate landing in the U.S. man-in-space program! They parked Gemini 9 less than two miles from the aiming point and only about three miles from the main recovery ship, the aircraft carrier Wasp, and in the view of millions of television watchers. "On the money" splashdown came at 10 a.m. EDT after a flight of 3 days, 21 minutes, during which Gemini 9 circled the globe 45 times and traveled nearly 1.2 million miles. While thousands of sailors, wearing their Sunday best, cheered, the Wasp maneuvered alongside and retrieved the as- tronauts and space craft from the sea 50 minutes after splashdown. Stafford and Cernan acknowledged the cheers with waves and thumbs-up signals. Both appeared relaxed and in excellent physical condition. Command pilot Stafford, whose cool, on-the-spot decisions played a key role in the mission, steered the space ship to a touchdown within sight of the carrier and on-deck television cameras, which relayed the dramatic picture via the Early Bird satellite to millions of U.S. homes. On deck, the spacecraft's hatches were re-opened and the smiling astronauts stood up. waved at the sailors and the TV cameras and shook hands with Navy and space agency officials. They then shook hands with one another and Stafford rubbed his three-day-old beard and laughed. The 17-piece ship's band struck up "Anchors Aweigh" as the astronauts headed for a two-hour examination. A large banner on the deck read: "Welcome Stafford (again) and Cernan." The Wasp also retrieved Stafford and Walter M. Schirra Jr. after the Gemini 6 flight in December. Capt. Gordon E. Hartley, the Wasp's commanding officer, said he put the ship a little short of target just in case Stafford carried out his threat to fly "right down the smokestack." Stafford, making his second flight into space in six months, was aided in the textbook landing by Cernan, who used the spacecraft computer to help calculate the maneuvers as Gemini 9 sped back through the atmosphere. He had an assist from an easterly wind that helped blow the craft back toward the carrier. A helicopter was overhead within seconds and Navy frogmen leaped into the water to attach a flotation collar to the bobbing craft. The divers reported Stafford and Cernan gave the "thumbs up" signal through their spacecraft window as it bobbed in the four- to five-foot waves. They appeared in excellent condition, the divers reported. The astronauts elected to stay in the spacecraft until the Wasp came alongisde. The spacecraft hatch was opened nine minutes after touchdown and Stafford and Cernan stood up. Stafford shook hands with the swimmers. It was a successful and dramatic end to a flight which had its ups and downs, with one problem after another plaguing the mission before and after the launching. During 72 hours and 21 minutes in orbit, Cernan and Stafford circled the globe 45 times and traveled nearly 1.2 million miles. Their fiery return to earth started 160 miles above the Pacific Ocean near the international dateline when the craft's four retro-rockets fired with a jolt at 9:26 a.m. EDT.

WHITE SAIGON, South Viet Nam (AP) - Premier Nguyen Cao Ky's military regime nominated a slate of 10 civilians today to join the 10-man ruling junta but excluded Buddhist extremists opposing the government. The list included some moderate Buddhists, Roman Catholics and representatives of the Cao Dai and Hoa Hao sects. But the absence of any militant Buddhists pointed to the imminent danger of a collapse of the political truce - between the regime and the Penelec Strike Is Over New Contract Ends One-Day Walkout, First for Company JOHNSTOWN, Pa. (AP) - A one-day strike against the Pennsylvania Electric Co., the first in the company's history, is over. Penelec and the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers reached agreement on a new contract Saturday, ending negotiations which had been going on since the old contract expired on May 25. Production and maintenance workers in northern and south central Pennsylvania walked off their jobs Friday midnight, but professional and supervisory personnel maintained service'to the firm's 420,000 customers in the area. Terms of the contract were not revealed. The contract must be approved by the 1,450 union members to become effective. Soon after the agreement was reached, R. L. McClain of Oil City, chief union negotiator, and Penelec officials issued a joint statement, the text of which follows: "It was agreed by the IBEW System Council (U-12) and the Pennsylvania Electric Co. that all pickets will be removed from their positions and that all employes shall return to their next regular shift without prej- Please Turn to Page 6, Col. 3 unified Buddhist Church. Even before the government published the list, the Buddhist Institute said: "This cannot solve anything but only increase the opposition from the people." A spokesman said the Buddhists wouldn't join the government if asked. The ruling generals drafted the list of civilians several hours before a deadline agreed on last week in negotiations between moderate Buddhist elements and the Ky regime to end the political crisis. The list submitted by the junta was revised this afternoon by the 34-man Armed Forces Council, part of the governing military apparatus, then sent back to the junta for approval. The Buddhist Institute, in a communique, repeated demands for the resignation of Ky and the chief of slate. Nguyen Van Thieu. "If the two generals still remain in power with only superficial changes in the junta, it cannot solve anything but only increase the opposition from the people," the communique said. 1 In Domko Shooting Case...

Domico Sr. Domico was killed while on duty in December 1964. (Progress Photo by Jack Zipf) higher court Judge John A. Cherry made it clear that the sentence reflected the recommendation for leniency made by the jury that convicted Lines of voluntary manslaughter last September. "If it had not been for this recommendation of leniency, there would have been no minimum sentence," he said. Twelve years and a $6,000 fine is the maximum for voluntary manslaughter. Lines was fined $1,000 and ordered to pay ail costs of prosecution. Asked by the court if he had anything to say before being sentenced, Lines replied. "Yes, your honor. I am not guilty. The murderer is running the streets. The Domico family knows I didn't kill their father." As he said this, he glanced in the direction of Pat Domico who was sitting in the witness section of the courtroom. It was Pat Domico who identified his father's body found slumped beside the police car on the early morning of Dec. 28.

Sheppard, Ohio physician, did not receive a fair trial in the bludgeon slaying of his first wife, Marilyn. Justice Tom C. Clark, announcing the decision, said the court had concluded "that Sheppard did not receive a fair trial consistent with the due process clause of the 14th Amendment." The court, therefore, Clark said, reversed a 2-1 decision by the U.S. Circuit Court in Cincinnati, which found no evidence that Sheppard had been deprived of federal rights. Clark concluded his opinion by saying the Sheppard case must go hack to the U.S. District court in Ohio' and that court must order Sheppard released from custody "unless the state puts him to its charges again within a reasonable time." Justice Hugo L. Black noted a dissent. Black did not state his views. The vote was 8-1. The former Cleveland osteopath, convicted of second degree murder and sentenced to life imprisonment in the 1954 slaying, claimed in his appeal to the high court that prejudicial news media publicity tainted the trial judge and jury. tion This will include population nounccr. trends, economic development, The program will conclude existing land use, highways, following the diploma presenta-community facilities, municipal tions with the traditional sing-financing and neighborhood jng of the school's Alma analysis.
