MANNED-FLIGHT COMPLEX STRUCK
Lightning Damage Erases Gemini Flight During 1964
By HOWARD BENEDICT
CAPE KENNEDY, Fla. (AP) — A series of lightning bolts which caused considerable damage on the Project Gemini launching pad apparently has erased any possibility of a two-man orbital flight this year.
Officials said the mishap probably means that astronauts
I Virgil I. Grissom and John W. Young will have to wait until early 1965 to make the first tandem flight. They were to take a three-orbit, five-hour space ride in mid-December.
As an electrical storm swept over Cape Kennedy Monday night, several lightning bolts struck the Gemini launching
! complex. They damaged systems in a Titan 2 rocket on the pad and in the ground support equipment.
It was the first recorded incidence of lightning damage to a rocket in the 14-year history of the cape. All rocket gantries here are supposed to be light-i ning-proof.
The Titan 2 was being groomed to boost a fully equipped spacecraft, which was not on the pad, on a 2,000-mile ballistic* flight to test all systems, the re-entry protective heat shield and recovery techniques.
The launching, the final unmanned shot before the Gri.s-
som-Young flight, had been scheduled for Oct. 6 The National Aeronautics and Space Administration said Tuesday, "The effect on the launch date is not knou'n at this time. Hut some equipment replacement, launch complex revalidation and systems retest will be required.”
“The over-all effect of this condition may result in a delay of the first manned flight into next year," the agency said.
A spokesman said the lightning caused no visible damage — that apparently all of it took the form of short-circuits and other electrical-type damage to delicate components.

Joseph T. Vaughan, 19, of 864 E. High Ave., New Philadelphia. was fined $56.20 by Dover Mayor C. LeMoyne Luthy this morning on a reckless operation charge filed by Mrs. E. L. Kaiser, 63, of RD I. Dover.
The youth, who was fadng his third moving traffic violation in 3 months, pleaded “no contest.”
Mrs. Kaiser said in the affidavit that Vaughan had made a U-turn on W. 3rd St. near the Shenango plant Sunday night, crossed a double yellow line and attempted to pass another auto on the rieht.
Vaughan admitted he had mads the U-turn, to “chase a carload of girls,” but questioned the other claims, saying all 4 wheels of the vehicle had not crossed the yellow line, and the attempted pass had not been completed.
Mrs. Kaiser said she had resee YOUTH, Page 2

12 Days Needed To Reach 'Post' Above Pacific
By HOWARD BENEDICT
CAPE KENNEDY, Fla. (AP) — The Syncom 3 communications satellite, intended to relay television pictures of the October Olympic Games in Japan quickly to North America and Europe, rocketed into a preliminary orbit today en route to a planned stationary post high above the Pacific Ocean.
Officials were cheered by the early success of the mission. But the “Olympic Star” satellite must execute a number of complex maneuvers in the next 12 days to shift its orbit and reach its goal as the world’s first truly synchronous —stationary — satellite.
While Syncom 3 is a research vehicle and television is not its main job, successful intercontinental transmission of Olympic-pictures would be the most dramatic performance so far by communications satellites.
U.S., Japanese. Canadian and European interests plan to spend nearly $1 million to demonstrate Olympic television capability with Syncom 3. Practically none of the transmission will be live, primarily because of time differences, and ironically, Canadian and European viewers probably will see more

Quaker Books Film 'Hamlet' With Burton
Harold Snyder, manager of Quaker Theatre in New Philadelphia. announced today that “Hamlet,” starring Richard Burton, will be presented there late next month for 4 performances only.
The matinee and evening presentations on 2 consecutive days is being made possible through a revolutionary new electronic-optical process Thea-trofilm.
The widely-heralded production, which closed at the Lunt-Fontanne Theatre on Broadway just last Saturday after a sensation,!! run, was filmed during an actual performance with a technique that employed the immediacy of television and the big-screen effect of motion pictures.
Snyder said tickets for the 4 performances will be sold in advance and the sale will not exceed the Quaker’s capacity. Popular prices will be in effect.
Regarded as one of the greatest attractions in the history of the New York stage, “Hamlet” will be shown in just I.OOO theatres across the nation. There will not be a road tour of the stage company.
