One of the dogs in the ballistic rocket was Daring, the veteran space traveler, who.was up for his fourth round trip. Daring, another dog, Snow flake, and a rabbit named Marfooshka (Little Martha) ,were sent up in a similar sin gle-stage rocket weighing pounds on July 2. Tass, the official Soviet news agency, said instru- ments in both rockets were parachuted to earth after suc- cessfully making recordings of conditions in the outer1 atmosphere. THE RUSSIANS have not disclosed the distance or alti tude of either the July 10 or July 2 flights.

Strike Due for Tuesday at Midnight Industry Chief Sees Little Hope, Attacks Union NEW YORK Stalled steel negotiations got under way again today at White House bidding but with scant prospect of an agreement to avert a strike at midnight Tuesday. The union promised to make "an all-Arnerican try" at negotiating a strike-saving settlement. R. Conrad Cooper, chief industry negotiator, threw cold water on settlement prospects and showed irrita- tion in posing with Union president David J. McDonald for photographers. COOPER SAID there was only one possible way a strike could be the union to again extend its contract. McDonald, however, ruled out any further delay in a showdown. The union earlier had granted a two-week truce but it expires at midnight Tuesday. Cooper said the union al- ready has caused (he industry injury by the fact that many inns have had to close down some facilities in the costly reparation for an orderly ndustry shutdown. "We're not the aggressors in the Cooper said. "We're not causing a strike."

Covering 10 acres and silting -SO feet below thc general level of the yard, the basin merely will be flooded lo "launch" the Long Beach. The flooding process will be started hours before the christening, and thc nuclear warship will be floated from the basin on the evening tide and towed inlo one of Ihe yard's outfilling docks. if if if ACTUALLY, the custom of holding ceremonies at ship launchings dales back to early times. Its origin was perhaps inspired by superstition and It, in effect, repre- sents making sacrifices to ill fortune, saying, "Take this and let our ship alone."

Then speed tapes can be checked, said Donald Mil- ler, assistant superintendent of SP's western division. The three locomotives were pulling a caboose when they sailed off the Brazos railroad bridge six miles south of here. The cab.oose snagged on a coupling and hung above the water.
