Cuts Short
Space Walk
Astronauts Still Plan
Morning Ride to 863
Mile Altitude Record
By The Associated Press
ard F. Gordon Jr. tried to walk
around the world yesterday but'
became exhausted along the way.
He did manage, however, to hang
from the Gemini spacecraft for 44
minutes, riding a rocket like a
Hot, sweaty and panting. Gor-
don cut his exotic excursion more
than an hour short when perspi-
ration poured down his face into
his right eye, temporarily blind-
ing it. It was the third straight
U.S. space walk to run into
4rGordon and his command pilot,
Charles Conrad Jr., still have
many feats ahead of them in
their bold three day voyage, sched-
uled to end tomorrow morning.
Today, they plan to trigger the
Agena rocket linked to their nose
for a jolting- ride to a record 863-
mile altitude. And Gordon hopes
to stage a second excursion out-
side-a 140-minute stand in his
seat to take scientific pictures.
"I'm pooped," Gordon told Con-
rad minutes after he slipped into
the strange, eerie world of space,
135 miles above Southern Cali-
fornia. He breathed hard and
quickly as he tried to work.
Word that the two pilots de-
cided to end the walk 71 minutes
early came as they flashed over
the Tananarive tracking station,
off the east coast of Africa,
Several major objectives of the
walk were lost. Gordon did not
have time to experiment with a
special power tool that would have
qualified him as the worldl's fixst
space mechanic.
He also did not get, a chance to
dart to and fro with a jet gun.
He did straddle the Agena rock-
r et linked to Gemini's nose, loop-
ing a loose end of a 100-foot cord
to the spacecraft. This set the
stage for the Agena and Gemini
11 to stretch apart, the cord tied
between them, to see if it might
be a fuel-saving way to fly in
A Gordon seemed to have diffi-
culty from the start. He found,
as three other American space-
walkers did that even though
you're in weightlessness, where
things are light as a feather-
simple tasks are hard to do. A
man in orbit is hampered by a
bulkwy pressure suit and also has
nothing to brace against.

Prime Minister Harold Wilson is shown leaving last night's session of the 22 nation Commonwealth
Conference at Marlborough House in London. Nonwhite leaders at the conference called for a total
United Nations embargo of the Smith regime in Rhodesia to bring African rule to the white-ruled
country. Wilson rejected the demands for strong and immediate action set forth by 17 of the
nations, but offered a three point pledge to work toward African rule.

With little fanfare, a communi-
que disclosed the landing of an-
other armored outfit, the second
in less than a week.
The 2nd Battalion of the old 34th
Armored Regiment, about 750 men
equipped with 50-ton M48 medi-
um tanks, arrived at Vung Tau,
45 miles southeast of Saigon.
Four of North Viet Nam's mis-
sile sites were among targets of
U.S. air squadrons in 170 mis-
sions Monday and pilots said they
damaged all of them. Two mis-

siles were reported hit in attacks
on a site 30 miles northwest of
Dong Hoi. One exploded in the
air and the other zigzagged er-
ratiecglly across the ground.
A spokesman said that, though
the missions were one short of the
record 171 flown Sunday, there
was one more plane flight in-
volved. Though precise figures

were withheld, the action involved'

SAIGON, South Viet Nam OP)--
The four million South Vietnam-

have given their country a bright-

The election gives the political

Under the misdemeanor charge,
Carmichael's bond was lowered
from $10,000 to 01,000.
NEW YORK-Dow Jones and
Co., Inc., announced yesterday
that in conjunction with The As-
sociated Press it is exploring cre-
ation of a new business and fi-
nancial news service that would

The joint study is based on the
premise that Dow Jones would as-
semble and edit a minute-by-min-
ute global economic news report.
The report would be delivered over-
seas, by teleprinter service to bro-

kers, banks, newspapers, business-
men and other subscribers. Dis-
cussions have begun with the hope
of starting such an overseas ser-
vice early next year.
BOGALUSA, Ala.-Negro leaders
called off plans for a protest
march here last night that would
have defied the city's ban on such
nighttime demonstrations.
The cancellation came shortly
after Mayor Jesse Cutrer warned
that his police would not allow an
after-dark march.
O. Z. Young, president of the
Bogalusa Voters League, said the
march was called off to give offi-
cials a chance to act on Negro

If this. initiative slips back in-
to South Viet Nam's political
quicksand, as has so often hap-
pened in the past, the disillusion-
ment of the nation's weary popu
lation could easily be final.
In the eyes of many voters, their.
ballots marked the beginning of
the end for South Viet Nam's mili-
tary rule. Whether the generals
will totally accept this is problem-1
atical. But the schedule calls for
election of a Legislative Assembly
and transfer of the helm to civil-
ians in 1967.
It is questionable that the new
assembly, with constitution-writ-
ing as its sole official duty, will
ask the military men to withdraw
from government. After all, the
nation is at war, is badly rent by
economic troubles, and evidently
needs strong direction.
It is certain, however, that the:
assembly will demand that the
military men become responsive- to
outside direction reflectingr popu-
lar wishes.
The assembly is almost certain
to write a constitution embody-
ing a strong presidential form of
government. That evidently would
be acceptable to the soldiers.
The assembly has six months m
which to write the constitution.
The military regime must approve
it or make revisions. These reds
ions, in theory, can be rejected by
a two-thirds vote of the assembly.
