How livable is it? Adapting quickly to their un- familiar environment, the Sky- lab astronauts become cheerily absorbed in varied tasks and press for more work. But, when asked, they report many minor irritations about privacy, per- sonal hygiene and housekeep- ing. Although the Skylab astro- nauts report they have general- ly been sleeping soundly in their zippered hammocks, they think future space stations should have soundproof bed- rooms. In a tape-recorded comment June 8, Cmdr. Joseph P. Ker- win of the Navy, Skylab 1 sci- ence pilot and physician, said. "If you ever want people on other than a simultaneous sleep cycle, you must provide them reserves Canada rocket, launching facilities at Cane SL OTTAWA (CP) Telesat Canada has reserved a rocket and a launching pad at Caps Canaveral in 1975, for more than million, in case a backup communications satel- Prison escapees indicted DONALDSONVILLK, Ga. (AP) A county grand jury re- turned murder, kidnapping and robbery indictments Tuesday against three prison escapees and a 16-year-old boy in the slayings of six members of a family last May. The grand jury indicted each of the defendants on six counts of murder. "Indicted were George Dungee 33; Wayne Coleman, 26; Carl Isaacs, 19, and Isaacs' 16-year- old brother, William, Rapa indictments were re- turned against the three older defendants. The four were arrested last May near Welch, W. Va. The four are charged in the slayings of Ned Alday, 62 his sons. Jerry, 35; Chester, 32, and Jimmy 23; his brother, Aubrey, 17, and erry's wife, Mary. The five Alday men were found slain in a mobile home at the family farm near here. The body of Mary Alday was found in a field about six miles away. The slayings occurred several days after Dungee, Coleman and Carl Isaacs escaped from a prison work camp in Maryland. lite must be launched. The corporation, which man- ages the domestic commu- nications satellite system, has arranged for a Thor-Delta launch rocket and pad for Anik HI if there is a breakdown in one of the two existing satel- lites, a Telesat spokesman said today. Anik JH might also be launched to provide more com- munications facilities for new customers, he said. But Telesat expected Anik HI would be kept In reserve. Arrangements had to be made well in advance as the U.S. National Aeronautics and Space Administration had a full schedule of rocket launches planned for the next two years. The Telesat spokesman said that if the rocket and pad are not used for Anik the corpo- ration can recoup the cost by providing them to another group that requires the facil- ities. Hot lunches program set EDMONTON (CP) pro- gram to provide hot lunches for Metis children at school in northern Alberta is to start next month under an order-in- council approved yesterday. The cabinet approved a spe- cial warrant of for the program, designed to provide one-third to one-half of the chil- drens' daily food requirements. A medical team is to test the 245 children involved before the program starts and at re- gular intervals afterwards to check results. with soundproof sleeping ac- commodations, which is the ex- act opposite of what we have right now." On Aug. 11, Capt. Alan L. Bean of the navy, commander of Skylab 2, tape-recorded this comment: "We need a place where everybody can go and close the door and the sound quits, noise quits and he doesn't have any problems af- ter that playing music as loud as you want and nobody hears it." Throughout Skylab 1, from May 25 to June 22, and on Sky- lab 2, since July 23, the astro- nauts on board Lave been rec- ording frank comments about equipment and the living con- ditions of the station for later tranmission to the ground. The comments are recorded on what is known as the "friendly B transcripts of which are made available to the press. COMMENTS NEGATIVE The comments tend be ne- gative because they haw been elicited to help make improve- ments for future space flights, even if they are 10 years or more away. The disadvantages of weight- lessness, Kerwin said, is the "feeling of ennui, of sluggish- ness" that comes when the heart and muscle have little work to do for a long period, as in space. "The body assumes a pecu- liar tie said. "All the joints completely free-float. Your arms float in front of you. The neck extends a little bit and you can't sit in a chair and read the way you do on earth. You hold the book straight out in front of you. When the astronauts relaxed in preparation one of the many medical experiments, he explained, there was a ten- dency to "kind of drift off into a cat nap." The astronauts tended to fight back against this "sense of dreamy Kerwin said, by saying to themselves, "go ride the bike, cany heavy loads, keap the body powered up." If the almost daily television pictures and the astronauts' own testimony in both live transmissions and taped com- ments are reliable evidence, life aboard Skylab is a little neater than in an Antarctic sta- tion and a little less cramped than aboard an atomic sub- marine. ENVIRONMENT HOSTILE Still, as on so many other ex- plorations, the environment is hostile. A misstep or a failed piece of equipment could although on Skylab, the station has room for much more dupli- cation of gear that on previous space flights. Like other explorers, thej Skylab astronauts are away' from homes, wives, children and the pull of gravity that guides every step, every wave of the arm. Comforts taken for wanted now take special ef- fort. Because the Skylab workshop circles the earth every 93 min- utes at an altitude of between 265 and 276 miles above the planet, the men experience about 10 sunrises and sunsets every working day. When they eat or wash their hands, stray drops of fluid are likely to float off and light on walls or cabinet doors, or on the aluminum honeycomb that constitutes the floor of their quarters. Maj. Jack R. Lousma of the marines, the Skylab 2 pilot commented Aug. 27: "I guess the message is that I'd build spacecraft without any exposed wiring and connectors, and places that water can get in behind and short things out. You just can't be careful enough to keep drops from fly- ing all over." The shower stall, an "aero- space has a pull-up cy- lindrical curtain that looks like a giant white caterpillar. It is not used much, since the astro- nauts find they do not become very sweaty in the cool dry air within the workshop, nor very dirty in an atmosphere that is freer of dust than a hospital operating room. Sponge baths are usually enough. Of the shower, Lousma made the most unfavorable comment to date: "I've only taken one shower. I think it's probably more a pain in the neck than it's worth. That kind of soap kind of sticks to you. It's hard to get it all off. The shower doesn't take all the water off you, or all the soap. You just go around smelling like that soap for a couple of days a and it stings a little bit. I don't like that soap at all." Lousma said he took sponge bath each night. Wash- ing his hair was a problem, he said. After wetting his hair, he cleaned it "out with soap and a rag as best I could. It would -foe nice to have some sham- poo."
