of the postponement he shrugged then went back to sleep The news came to Grissom jusi hours before he was to begin his medical checkups and don his 20pound space suit The postponement on the advice of a special team of U S Weather Bureau experts came as some thing of a surprise pre dictions up to pm had been optimistic Even so the nations newest weather satellite the Tiros III fired a week ago had

ive Negro and white youths ere arrested Tuesday night WASHINGTON of Agriculture Orville L Free man says William T the man who is buying a Cadillac with farm subsidy pay far from a typical farmer He called Smiths actions a partisan propaganda stunt de signed to make political hay If all farmers had the econom ic advantages of Smith Free man said we would not need to be concerned with a farm program SMITH A Big Flats N Y businessmanfarmer stirred up a hornets nest 10 days ago by showing up in town proclaiming he had made a down payment on the Cadillac with money the government paid him for not planting 104 acres with corn He said hed finish paying for it with another subsidy payment Freeman who occasionally writes to letterstotheeditor col umns expressed his view in such a communication to The New York Times The newspa per published the letter as a news item and The Associated Press obtained a copy from jfollowing a gang assault on ffve Freemans office here ipedestrians and two policemen The secretary said only aiwith soda bottles knives haling small minority of American farmers can be as fortunate as Smith He said the farm pro gram is primarily for farmers whose net income last year av eraged less than Smith operates a roadside res taurant and dairy bar near his 1200acre farm Freemans letter outlined the purposes of the feed grain pro gram and noted that Smith had advocated elimination of all gov ernment programs even though he said some people will be hurt WHAT HE really meant Freeman said was that he would not be hurt while millions of fulltime farmers who have no auxiliary business to fall back on would be left to the mercy of a market that would offer them a return much lower than the shockingly meager one cited Freeman gave this descriptio of what he called a typical farm operation in 1960 The typica cornbelt hogdairy farm wit 109 acres of cropland and a cap ital value of had a gross farm income of includ ing government payments Op crating expenses were The net income of figures out to a return of 31 cents an hour for the labor of the farm er and members of his family Quite obviously in this typica situation the government pay ments did not go for a Cadillac or any other luxury SOME may wonder why the feed grain program does not ex elude wealthy farmers who clearly need no assistance Freeman said All government programs for the benefit of the general public provide services for the few who do not need such services as well as for the great majority who do need them Our public schools for exam ple provide free education at taxpayers expense for children whose parents could well afford to educate them Our Social Se curity program provides pen sions for those whose salaries have averaged a year as well as for those who averaged or less We have discovered no better way in Social Security in our postal system nor in any other of our government programs including the program to help firmers In announcing the postponement the National Aeronautics and Space Administration said the cloud cover was attributable to an easterly wave which has been moving across the Caribbean for the past three or four days The weather hitch developed as technicians and scientists were preparing to resume the countdown which would have led to a scheduled 6 am lift off Tuesday morning The presence of the high clouds would have hampered full photographic coverage of the operation which scientists insist upon from blastoff to burnout of the booster THUNDER STORMS THE DELAY caused a slight mounting of tension here in what had been an otherwise calm acceptance of the fact that another man was sched uled to take a 300mile ride like a bullet NASA officials said they had noted a sort of ho hum atti ude toward the flight and ob served that Grissom could lave less than a perfect light John A Shorty Powers pub ic information officer for the astronauts told reporters the aunch time was pushed up two tours to avoid the summer phenomenon of thunderstorm buildups early in the morning in Florida THIS GIVES the sun a chance to come out and burn off the cloud cover he said With all our electronic mar vels all we seem to be able to do at this is watch the weather And the forecast that we have now I must say is as of this time Powers said he visited the crew quarters at Hangar S on the Cape and found Grissom and his backup astronaut John Glenn Jr quite relaxed He said that both had done a little running to keep in and in fact Grissom picked up his fishing pole on the way Grissom an avid fisherman walked out to the beaches of Tape Canaveral and promptly aught a fourpound bass which he had for breakfast North Iowa Partly cloudy wi showers and thunderstorm Tuesday evening through We nesday forenoon Locally coo
