White while the lat ter is outside the ship Attempt to cut foreign aid amount WASHINGTON AP A group of House Republicans who call themselves a minori ty of the minority plannec Tuesday to try to cutup to million from President Johnsons foreign aid author zation bill One of the Republicans Rep E Ross Adair of Indiana told a reporter he expected to offer a least one or perhaps two amendments in that range to give House members who op pose foreign aid spending a chance to pare the authoriza pose making lengthy space trips Each time the thin metallic skin of Pegasus 2 is penetrated by one of the streaking cosmic bullets the satellite is to emil an electronic squawk to be recorded in a memory device and radioed to earth on com mand The 18storytall Saturn 1 the worlds most powerful rocket uttered a mighty roar and senl a waterfall of flame cascading over its launching pad as i flashed to life at am after a perfect countdown The massive firststage power plant a cluster of eight engines generated 15 million pounds o thrust It was the first time that Sat rn 1 had been launched in arkness and it provided early ising missile watchers with rilliant performance of noise and fire It illuminated Cape Kenned as if it were midday A great thunderclap rollec across the cape and a 300foo ail of flame fanned out behinc he booster as it raced towarc pace After 2V2 minutes the hydro enpowered second stage ignit ed and pushed the satellite into orbit The National Aeronautics and Space Administration an nounced that Pegasus 2 was in an orbit ranging from about 320 o 460 miles high Personnel at the West Indies racking station on Antigua watched on closedcircuit space television as the satellites tvings unfolded like an accord an high above the Atlantic some 2000 miles southeast of Cape Kennedy They said a camera mounted on the second stage provided clear pictures of the deploy ment Theburnedout second stage remained attached to the satel lite for stabilization Total tion Adair was far from optimist about his chances of succeeding The composition of the Housi las changed since two year ago when he led a successfu Republican attempt to slash foreign aid by more than million Not only do Democrats have s opheavy majority in th House but they can count or considerable support among Re publicans Cloture vote 70 yes 30 no WASHINGTON The Senate clamped a tight time limit Tuesday on further debate on the voting rights bill urged by President Johnson The action was regarded as assuring the measures early passage The vote to put the Senates cloture or debating closing time into effect was 70 for and 30 against This was three more than the required twothirds ma jority The debate restriction limits to one hour each sen ators speaking time on the bill and all amendments from now on Debate on the bill began April 22 Most of the 100 senators will not make use of their allotted time and leaders were hopeful of passing the bill Wednesday if not Tuesday night Sen Sam J Ervin Jr DNC a key spokesman for Southern senators who have denounced the bill as unconstitutional told newsmen he intended to call up 10 or 11 more amendments but would spend only a few minutes on each The way things are he said f dont think I could even get a denunciation of the Cruci fixion into the bill Republican Leader Everett M Dirksen of Illinois a major architect of the administration bill said that except for Ervins amendments he expected only three or four others to be of fered Dirksen said he thought the bill mightbe passed Tuesday night as did Democratic Lead er Mike Mansfield of Montana This was only the second time lie Senate has invoked its de latelimitation rule on a civil measure The first time vas the 7129 vote to shut off debate on last years general ivil rights bill The vote then came on the 75th day of debate and throttled a Southern fili iuster In August 19G2 a twothirds majority also was obtained to cut off a filibuster against the jill establishing the Communi cations Satellite Corp That was he first time in 25 years that the cloture rule had been suc cessfully invoked Tuesdays vote for cloture had jeen indicated by an advance Associated Press poll showing 62 senators committed to vote or it and 26 opposed Of the 12 who didnot commit themselves in the poll nine vot ed for cloture on last years test and two voted against it The other uncommitted senator was weight was 23000 pounds Offi cials said the payload would be visible in areas of the world over which it passed at night time The launching was the second of three planned in the Pegasus series which draws its name from the flying horse of Greek mythology The first Pegasus has been circling the earth since last Feb 16 Although its panels have been peppered by thou sands of tiny metcoroids space agency officials say its findings have generated confidence tha properly designed manned sat ellite surfaces will be able to withstand the impacts Orbiting of Pegasus 2 actually was a secondary goal of the launching The main purpose was to further evaluate the Sat urn 1 forerunner of the mighty Saturn 5 rocket which is being developed to launch American astronauts to the moon GIANT SATURN ROCKET AS IT LOOKED 130 MILES FROM CAPE KENNEDY Photofax Disagree over jet raids Did MIGs or US planes hit Viet Nam outpost Seeks final report on Dennler
