Only a few months after he took Over As chief of the Agency s future planning division von Braun and his aides Are talking about what they would like to design and build for the late 1980s a 100 Man Earth orbiting space station for missions up to 180 Days. This kind of thinking takes considerable courage at a time when new far out space projects Are getting sidelong glances from some members of Congress and will be shoved to the Back Burner if space program critics have their Way. A three Man orbiting space station is probable by 1972 or 1973 because most of the hard Ware for such a vehicle Aheady is on the shelf. But a 12-Man station by the late 1970s still is Only a possibility it could go either Way yes or no depending on world and Domestic conditions a year or two from now and the resulting mood of Congress. Von Braun and his colleagues however Are Penc Iling in the 100-Man station in the future column on the Assumption that the 12-Man spaceship will be funded in time for service late in this decade National aeronautics and space administration chief or. Thomas 0. Paine has the project under study. Documents detailing the technical skills and Job categories for a 100-Man space Crew read like a census taker s tabulation Sheet. First there is the typical spacecraft Crew trained in engineering physics astronomy meteorology Medicine and other sciences. Then the planners have writ ten in a whole new Crew personnel to handle Supply and support functions of such a huge space base. These include mess attend ants storekeepers Cooks welders maintenance engineers a Barber and of course the janitor. One option even has a journalist photographer just in Case some newsman wants to go along. A chaplain would be a Mem Ber of the Crew to hold weekly n o n denominational services. And there would be a psychiatrist in addition to a doctor to Monitor the Crew s mental health. The planning document is based on a projected 180-Day space Mission with each crewman working eight hours a Day six Days a week.

A pref get psychological test period would be required to establish Crew social and work patterns for the selection of Crew quarters and team in simpler language this Means the Agency wants no feuding and fussing among Crew once the station is space borne the 100-Man station study stresses that Matching of Crew personnel on the basis of psychological compatibility is an important Factor in Mission Success a typical workday in a 100 Man spaceship according to the study is reflected in the duties of the Deputy space Craft commander. He would spend two hours at the command Center control console As navigator an hour reviewing the operations log and schedule two hours evaluating the Crew and spacecraft performance an hour inspecting and two hours making flight decisions. The space Agency even in the face of its lowest annual budget m seven years is dead serious about its skylab series of manned Earth orbiting space stations.

The senator is not indulging in Nightmare fantasies in her familiar role of Cassandra for the Over permissiveness generated by the anti Mccarthy reaction has already unleashed different but no less deadly furies in our land. If americans must choose Between destruction and harsh measures to keep their nation from being destroyed there is no doubt what the decision of the overwhelming majority will be. Even so.

Then the weapon was intimidation at worst today the menace is real and lethal Vio Lence arson bombs and death. The Defiance by North Viet Nam of International conventions on the treatment of prisoners of War is Well known. Beginning to surface now is an equally harsh attitude by the communists toward the status of newsmen covering the fighting in Cambodia.

Some Are known to be prisoners of the Viet Cong or of cambodians Loyal to deposed Prince Sihanouk the Fate of others is still undetermined. The noncombatant status of newsmen has been respected More often than not during the years of fighting in South Vietnam. Only 10 have gone on the missing list throughout the Vietnam War. Many have fallen into communist hands and then been released. The attitude of the communists in Cambodia toward the for eign newsmen is not puzzling. It jul ave Bijj j.

Freedom of speech debate and dissent far from being the inno cent victims of the suppression of violence will in fact be protected by it. This nation can survive whatever honest doubts it May Harbor about its future course just As it has weathered crises in the past if the debate Over that course and humanity and the same disregard for International opinion that communists exhibit toward sick and wounded prisoners of War. The captured newsmen do not include Only americans. Also miss ing Are French japanese and Ger Man newsmen.
