rol stations on earth kept

an excited silence as the busy
astronauts performed the final
maneuvers.
Spotting the lights of the 26-
foot Agena in darkness, the Gem-
ini astronauts chased it into the
sunrise, and caught up with it
185 miles above the Western
Pacific.
Flew Formation
Thenplaying cat and mouse
with their target, they flew for-
mation with it before closing in
for the final capture.
Gemini Control reported that
the pilots sounded "pretty ho-
hum" as they edged toward their
target. They described it in de-
tail and said the engine-loaded
with powerful fuel-looked good.
"It's pretty bright up here,"
reported Scott as the sunlight
caught both of the closing space-
craft.
Final Docking
The final docking came over
the South Atlantic when the Gem-
ini pilots were in contact with the
tracking ship Rose Knot Victor.
The Gemini 8 entered its 5th
orbit at 6:07 p.m. EST.
The link-up in space is just one
of two major goals in the flight.
Today, Scott, a 33-year-old Air
Force major, will stroll in space
for a world record 21/2 hours-a
lonely human satellite for one and
two-thirds times around the earth.
Gemini Matches Agena
When the astronauts' lower but
speedier orbit brought them to
about 39 miles of the Agena,
Armstrong drilled the Gemini 8
into a higher orbit to match the
path of the Agena exactly.
Earlier excitement faded to a
businesslikecalmas thedastro-
nauts concentrated on the closing
distance with the fuel-loaded
Agena. Complimenting their awn
spacecraft, they said, "We got a
real winner here."
They caught the Agena 6 hours
34' minutes after they blasted off
in pursuit at 11:41 a.m., trailing
the pale blue fire of their 109-foot
Titan rocket.
Flawless Launch
When he sighted the Agena,
Scott reported, "At least we have
some object in sight-or some-
thing-it looks like the Agena."
Gemini control later confirmed the
sighting.
The two astronauts watched the
flawless launch of their Agena
target ship at 3 seconds after 10

a.m. and followed it into space
101 minutes later.
Almost immediately after launch,
President Johnson said in Wash-
ington that the U.S. will be the
first to the moon-the first time
he has hazarded such a public
prediction.
Men on the Moon
It pointed up the importance
of this flight-a vital technique
that will have to be perfected if
the U.S. is to land men on the
moon before 1970.

Just as the Americans were'
going up, the Soviets were bring-
ing two space dogs, Coal Lump
and Breezy, back to earth after
a record three weeks in space at
altitudes that carried t h e m
through the lethal radiation belts
that circle the earth. It is ob-
viously a step toward putting men
into similar orbits.
The orbiting Americans hurtled
into a nearly perfect orbit, in
egg-shaped track ranging from 99
to 168 miles above the earth.

France Approves English
Entry Into Common Market

the composition of a new cabinet
that Suharto is reported to be
planning.
Sources in Singapore have said
that the anti-Communist armed

had given Sukarno an ultimatum
last week to get rid of his pro-

LONDON WP)-President Charles
de Gaulle yesterday stoked up
Britain's national election cam-
paign with an official notice that
France now deems Britain's mem-
bership in the European Common
Market desirable.
The French leader's carefully
timed move-one week after an-
nouncing plans to quit the military
organs of the North Atlantic Trea-
ty Organization - brought hi
country into line with the other
five Common Market states which
want Britain in.
France's changed position was
conveyed formally, and for the
first time to Britain in the forum
of the seven-nation Western Eu-
ropean Union here. Other members
of the union are France's five
Common Market partners-West
Germany, Italy, Belgium, Holland
and Luxembourg. All echoed

French delegate Jean Debrglie's
statement that British entry now
is desirable.
Nevertheless, the development
got only the wariest of welcomes
from Prime Minister Harold Wil-
son's government. Foreign Secre-
tary Michael Stewart said it has
created "a far healthier situation"
than than in January 1963, when
de Gaulle vetoed Britain's entry.
But Stewart told newsmen this
has been offset by France's plan-
ned withdrawal from the NATO
military network. This, he said.
would break inter-Allied contracts.
With voting in Britain only two
weeks away, de Gaulle's action
provided welcome ammunition for
the leaders of the opposition Con-
servative and Liberal parties, Ed-
ward Heath and Jo Grimond, to
fire at the ruling Laborites.
