Sets Back
America's astronauts suffered a
Jolting setback in the man-in-
space race with Russia yesterday
when a giant Atlas missile ex-
ploded 65 seconds after blastoff
during a crucial heat re-entry test
of the project Mercury capsule.
The seven astronauts, watching
from an underground bunker near
the launching pad, saw the 80-
foot Atlas take off in a driving
rainstorm and head down the At-
lantic missile range in what
seemed like a successful liftoff.
Lose Contact
Little more than a minute later,
radio contact with the huge rocket
was lost. Almost simultaneously,
residents a few miles south of
the Cape heard a great roar in
the skies as the missile disinte-
grated. The explosion, which oc-
curred at an altitude of about 25
miles, was obscured from the
ground by low-hanging clouds.
Navy search ships immediately
began scouring the fog-cloaked
waters over an area 4 to 12 miles
south of the launching pad in the
hope of recovering remnants of
the multi - million - dollar Atlas
booster and possibly the capsule.

CHICAGO (,)-Vice-President Richard M. Nixon threw into his
presidential campaign yesterday a declaration against tax boosts,
hedged by a firm pronouncement that national security "must and
will come first."
Nixon tossed in a strictly unqualified statement on religion as an
issue in a campaign in which he is prepared to play the underdog
role to the hilt.
"I shall never talk about it," he said, "and I shall start right

turned the surplus over to the

Moise Tshombe, Premier of Ka-

almost certainly will try to win a
larger share of the rich mining

This would put the central gov-

he said, "that national security

]De mocratic
To Confer
HYANNIS PORT. Mass. 4 -'
Sen. Lyndon B. Johnson beset by
bad weather, arrived on Cape Cod
by plane last night for a cam-
paign strategy conference with
Sen. John F. Kennedy, the demo-
cratic presidential nominee.
A chartered plane bringing the
Texas candidate for Vice-Presi-
dent set down at Otis Air Force
Base near Falmouth, Mass., after
a profusion of reports about
where it would land.
The plane originally was
scheduled to land at Hyannis,
then was re-routed to Otis, then
to Boston and finally back to Otis.
Kennedy had intended to drive
out to Hyannis Airport to meet
Johnson, but dropped that plan
as the hours of indecision went by
as to where Johnson would land.
The meeting between Kennedy
and Johnson was their first since
they were nominated at Los An-
geles two weeks ago.
Johnson flew to Cape Cod with
a party of about 40, including his
wife, Lady Bird, staff members
and newsmen.
The Senate Majority Leader
stopped off at Kansas City en
route from Texas to visit former
President Harry S. Truman.
Prior to his arrival, Johnson
was given accolades by both Ken-
nedy and Frank D. Reeves, a
Negro, who is Democratic Na-
tional Committeeman from
Washington, D. C.
To a news conference question
whether Johnson would hurt the
Democratic ticket in Negro areas
of the North, Reeves said:
"Johnson won't hurt the ticket;
he will strengthen the ticket."
He said that it was under John-
son's leadership that Congress

The cause of the mishap, which
may delay the Mercury program
for weeks, was unknown hours
after the launching.
Air Force Col. Paul Wignall, it
top project officer, told newsmen:
"Something catastrophic - per-
haps an explosion or structural.
disintegration - occurred which
terminated the test."
It was learned later there had
been an explosion.
The shot, using the first pro-
duction-line Mercury capsule, was
designed to subject the man-in-
space vehicle to severe heating
conditions, more intense than
' would occur in an actual return,
from orbiting the earth.
If the test had been successful,
and the one-ton capsule had been
recovered unscathed after passing
through the heat barrier, it would
have moved the astronaut's D-
Day considerably ahead.
Space Trip
Agency disclosed plans to launch
three-man project Apollo space
crews by 1966 into Earth-orbit
journeys lasting from two weeks
to two months.
Even more ambitiously, a lighter
weight version of the same Apollo
spacecraft somewhat later may be
sent on a week-long assignment
around the moon and back.
But there's no plan for a man-N
on-the-moon project before 1970.
The National Aeroanutics and
Space Administration also plans to
land a truck-mounted robot lab-
oratory gently on the face of the
moon, and move it by remote con-
trol about a 50-mile radius lunar
circle, taking the moon samples.a

Nasser Raps
Iran's Stand
CAIRO, Egypt (1) - President
Gamal Abdel Nasser has demanded
that the Arab states stand up and
be counted on their attitude to-
ward Iran in the light of that
Moslem nation's continued recog-
nition of Israel.
Last week Shah Mohammed
Reza Pahlevi said Iran's recogni-
tion of Israel still stands. En-
raged, Nasser responded with a
personal campaign against the
Shah. He is pressing other Arab
states to follow suit, but so far
none has done so.
The Arab nations still consider
themselves at war with Israel.
Iran, a Moslem but not an Arab
nation, does not. It recognized
Israel 10 years ago but has not
had a representative in Tel Aviv
since 1957. Iranian officials said
the Shah's statement represented
no change whatsoever in their
country's policy toward Israel.
They said they were mystified at
Nasser's anger.
The National Assembly of Nas-
ser's United Aran Republic has
adopted a resolution urging other
Arab states to follow Cairo's lead
in breaking diplomatic, economic
and cultural relations with Iran.
Moslem preachers in Cairo mos-
ques denounced the Shah as a
traitor to Islam at sabbath prayers
yesterday. Worshippers were asked
to raise their hands to heaven and
chant slogans against the Shah.
The UAR has also asked other
member nations of the Arab

of Iran for UN posts, particularly

Looks Ahead1
CHICAGO ({)-His own politi-
cal future is uncertain, Gov. Nel-
son A. Rockefeller said yesterday,
but he would not rule out the
possibility he might run for re-
election as Governor of New York.
Neither would he foreclose the
possibility he might accept a cabi-
net post if Vice-President Richard
M. Nixon is elected President in
Asked about the cabinet job,:
Rockefeller said only that he did
not believe a presidential candi-
date should run "encumbered by
political deals."
Rockefeller said his most im-
mediate concern is carrying New
York state for the Republican
Party in the November elections.
The Governor, looking tired,
commented at a convention-review
news conference before heading
back to New York.
He postponed his departure

When asked about his own poli-
tical plans, Rockefeller said "I
don't like to cross bridges before
I come to them." His present term
expires in December 1962.
The Governor looked back on
his role in the GOP National Con-
vention, which ended last night
after nominating Nixon and UN
Ambassador Henry Cabot Lodge
as its presidential and vice-pregi-
dential candidates.
Rockefeller had a strong voice
in shaping the party platform. He
provided suspense by withholding
an endorsement of Nixon until the
day before the balloting.

'Chang Party .'-ae 1
Takes 17
House Seats
Leads Democrats
To Solid Victory
SEOUL, South Korea (M)-John
M. Chang's Democratic Party, long
the underdog foe of ousted former
President Syngman Rhee, won
'South Korea's post -revolutionary
election in returns yesterday.
Fighting, ballot box burning and
kidnaping marred the counting in
Thursday's voting as incomplete
but conclusive returns gave the
moderately inclined Democrats a '
solid victory which they claimed
would turn into a landslide.
The returns from 166 districts
showed the Democrats had won at
least 120 seats In the new House
of Representatives - topping the
117 needed for a majority in the
133-seat chamber.
Chang, leader of the Democrats
and a former vice-president, easily
won his own seat from a Seoul
district. The Democrats took .15
and possibly 16 contests in the
New Makeup
The election determines the
makeup of a national assembly
that is to choose a new president
and Premier. At stake were 233
seats of the dominant lower house
and the 58 seats of the upper
house, which was brought into be-
ing during Rhee's rule.
Just as the Communist-threat-
ened nation was rejoicing at the
unprecedented calm and freedom
in which about 92 million people
voted Thursday, at least five at-
tacks were staged by students and
others angry either at the conduct
of the voting or early results.
Ballot boxes were burned, sores
of ballots torn up, more than 40
policemen injured and homes of
two candidates attacked. The in-
cidents erupted in the Pusan-
Masan area, 300 miles south of
Seoul, at Kimchon near Taegu,
and at Yungyang, 140 miles south-
east of Seoul.
Dispatches said backers of los-
ing candidates at Kimchon de-
stroyed ballots, beat police and
stoned the home of the apparent
winner. It was long after midnight
when they dispersed.
Ballots Burned
A number of ballot boxes were
reported burned by scores of un-
identified youths who broke into
the Yungyang counting station.
Counting was suspended tempo-
rarily at Milyang, 30 miles north
of Pusan, when 20 youths entered
the counting station and burned
four ballot boxes to protest al-
leged fraud by a Democrat leading
in the race.
Angry mobs seized and burned
ballot boxes and attacked a candi
date's home in two fiareups in t*
Pusan-Masan area, 300 miles south
of Seoul.
Police quelled one of the dis-
turbances at Pusan and located a
missing candidate, who earlier had
been feared kidnaped. Tension

continued at Sam Chon Po, 30
miles west of Masan, where 40
police were injured in rioting and
ballot burning which erupted when
a candidate labeled by crowds as
pro-Thhee took an early lead.
The expected Democratic. vic-
tory foreshadowed adjustment of
the financial and military ar-
rangements long existing between
the United States and the Rhee
regime in holding the line against
They Democrats' key campaign
promise was a gradual cut of up
