Scientists leave 'engineer-oriented'

space agency

SPACE CENTER, Houston (P)-Sci-
entist-astronaut Dr. F. Curtis Michel
announced yesterday he's quitting the
space agency, thus joining a growing
number of scientists fleeing a program
they believe too "engineer-oriented."
Michel resigned by letter to astro-
naut chief Donald K. Slayton. He said
he did so with reluctance, but ex-
plained he was eager to devote more
time to science and the opportunities
to fly into space are rare.
Three other scientists-astronauts out
of the 17 selected by the National
Aeronautics 'and Space Administration
resigned earlier,
Sources said some of those remain-
ing also are unhappy about the long
wait for aE flight and the lack of em-
phasis on science in the programa

Two scientists in the earth and lunar
resources branch at the Manned
Spacecraft Center announced their
resignations just as examination

started of the first rocks brought back
from the moon.
Dr. Wilmot Hess, the chief scien-
tist at MSC, resigned to take a job
with the U.S. Environmental Science
Services Administration.
Dr. Elbert King, curator of the Lu-
nar Receiving Laboratory, is resign-
ing in September to take a post at
the University of Houston.
King said NASA has "given science
a back seat in the last few years. He
maintained that must change if the
space program is to succeed now that
the first astronauts have landed on
the moon.
"Now that we've accomplished our
national goal," he said, "there has to
be a good scientific reason for us to
keep going back to the moon. NASA
has made no real effort to develop
"The NASA space program would
lose some of the support it has from
the science community without a
sound scientific development" of its

future flights to the moon, King said.
Emphasis in the program, so far, he
said, has been practically all on the
engineering of getting men to the
moon and bringing them back.
One source said the continuing con-
flict with the engineers is the main
reason Hess is leaving the program.
NASA always has had difficulties in
attracting scientists, the source said,
and it probably will be even harder
now that the highly-regarded Hess is
The conflict between, science and
engineering thinking surfaced earlier
this year when a petition from 60
scientists asked the space agency to
hold the number of flights to the moon
to two or less a year.
NASA officials, however, have advo-
cated three or more of the lunar
landing flights a year until the exist-
ing launch vehicles and spacecraft are
Scientists feel that more time 'be-
tween flights would increase the sci-

entific return of the moon landings.
There would be more time to study
data from previous flights and decide
where next to land. There also would
be more time to develop additional
scientific experiments.
Engineers, however, feel that the
engineering teams needed to make the
flights can't be held together unless
the flights are at least every four
They point out that the long delays
between flights would cause engineers
to drift to more active programs.
King said that scientists would ac-
tually prefer about nine months be-
tween the flights.
There are a number of restless sci-
entists in the space program who are
hanging on, hoping NASA will devote
more of the immense engineering cap-
ability it has developed toward science,
King added.
Some, like himself, he said, feel they
can accomplish more in science while
working with NASA as an outsider

However, Gary Rothberger main-
tained that forming a mass based
organization like the RSU could
create a split similar to the one
whiche caused the formation of
Radical Caucus after a dispute
over tactics with SDS last fall.
The letter, going out nationally,
to other radical groups and in-
dividuals, explains why caucus
split with SDS last fall.
An "opposing faction called the
Jesse James Gang, which placed
great emphasis on vanguard ac-
tion to 'spark' the struggle, ulti-
mately made it- impossible for
Radical Caucus to continue to
operate in the SDS framework,"
the letter says.
The letter explains that Cau-
cus emphasizes "a democratically-
based movement which seeks to
organize, educate, and limit itself
to useful disruptive tactics with
large support rather than "cre-
ative destruction by a politically
advanced elite."

street by a man who described
himself as an EMU student. After
talking for awhile he said he would
visit her the next day. Albrecht
Smith reported that Albrecht
said she had told her friend of
Collins, the car he was driving,
and the fact that Collins would
visit Albrecht again. Phillips "was
well aware of the existence of
John Collins," said Smith.
"Collins failed to return and on
the following day, a Monday,
Roxey Ann Phillips disappeared
from Salinas and her body was
found two weeks later in the Car-
mel area," Smith said.
Meanwhile, police and officials
from the Federal Bureau of In-
vestigation are conducting a na-
tion-wide search for Andrew Man-
uel, who police say traveled to'
Salinas with Collins in a rented
camping trailer.
A warrant for Manuel's arrest
has been issued because he failed
to return the trailer to an Ypsi-
lanti firm. The FBI has a warrant
out for his arrest as a fugitive
from the law. Paul Stoddard, spe-
cial agent in charge of the Detroit
FBI office said the FBI is only

concerned with finding Manuel
and does not at this time have any
thing to do with Collins' case.
Police have reason to believe
that Manuel is on his way to Flor-
ida and they are especially check-
ing out leads in states with routes
between Michigan and Florida and
Michigan and California.
Police picked up a man suspect-
ed -to be Manuel, but he was clear-
ed "within a matter of minutes,"
according to Stadtfeld.
Manuel had rented the trailer
using a check and identification
stolen from an EMU student.
Det. Sgt. Ken Christensen and
De.t Tom Nasser of the State Po-
lice Crime Laboratory in Plymouth
have been examining the trailer,
but have reported little evidence
linking it with any of the local
According to Stadtfeld, there is
no information concerning a finger
print of Phillips on the trailer.
Collins faces a preliminary ex-
amination tomorrow in District
Judge Edward Deake's court. His
attorneys will probably ask for a
change in venue for both the ex-
amination and trial charging that
adverse publicity to Collins war-
rants a change in location.

However, the preliminary ex-
amination may be postponed any-
way if Collins replaces his at-
torneys and retains two from
Marine City, Mich. who reportedly
conferred with him Monday.
At the examination, the prose-
cuting attorney presents evidence
to show that a crime has been'
committed and that there are rea-
sonable grounds for believing the!
defendant committed the crime.
County Prosecuting . Attorney
William Delhey is expected to op-
pose both motions for change.
Although Delhey rarely appears
for a lower court examination, he
is expected to present the case
against Collins tomorrow.
Delhey is expected to present
only the "barest" evidence against
Collins at the pre-trial examina-
tion, holding back his main evi-
dence for the Circuit Court trial.
The Supreme Court has given
explicit decisions about publicity
proven detrimental to the defend-
and before the trial, and the seven
unsolved slayings in the Ann Ar-
bor-Ypsilanti area and the arrest'
of Collins have received worldwide

Laos, yesterday after being released from a North Vietnamese
prisoner camp.
Navy pilot Lt. Robert Franchot Frishman acting as spokesman for
the freed men said their treatment in the camps had been adequate.
Frishman, Capt. Wesley Lewis Rumbel, an Air Force pilot, and
Douglas Hegdahl, a seaman apprentice, were accompanied by a fur4
man pacifist mission. The pacifists took over custody of thethree n
Hanoi Monday.
Frishman had been a prisoner for nearly 22 months after his
plane was shot down Oct. 24, 1967, near Hanoi. Rumbel was in cap-
tivity for 16 months following his capture in April, 1968, and Hegdahl,
who fell into the sea from a U.S. cruiser April 5, 1967, was a prisoner
for 28 months.

government in eight months yesterday ending a 31-day crisis but
leaving Italy's deep political troubles largely unsolved.
The all-Christian Democrat minority government, to -be sworn
in today, is a stopgap body to govern with the support in Parliament
of two Socialists parties. The government is committed tacitly to
resign as early as fall or by spring at the latest.
The new solution in effect puts off a decision on the issues that
created the crisis-cooperation with the Communists and the relative
weight to be given to forces within the "center left."
The crisis occurred when Rumor failed to form a coalition govern-
ment with his own Christian Democrats and the split halves of the
Socialists-one moderate, the other leftist. The Socialists fell apart
July 4 when the moderates accused the leftists of cooperating with
the Communists.

SEN. EDWARD M. KENNEDY'S recent automobile accident
has forced him to cancel a long-scheduled mid-August European
A spokesman for the Massachusetts Democrat yesterday said
Kennedy had cabled the World Conference on Youth to cancel his
Aug. 19 address in Brussels.
Kennedy had cited legal matters surrounding the death of Mary
Jo Kopechne that might require his presence as the reason for can-
celing his trip, the spokesman said. Legal proceedings stemming from
the July 18 accident would presumably include, an inquest, requested
by Dist. Atty. Edmund Dinis, to determine the legal cause of Miss
Kopechne's death. The inquest would be held in Edgartown, Mass,
Although the Brussels address was his only scheduled public
appearance Kennedy had planned to tour several European cities
with his wife.
DISTRICT COURT JUDGE James A. Boyle has made a deci-
sion on the request for an inquest into Sen. Edward Kennedy's auto
accident, but it won't be made public for another day or two, authori-
ties said yesterday.
The sources said Boyle was mailing his response to Dist. Atty.
Edmund Dinis who began seeking the inquest last week. Dinis has
not yet said why he wants the case reopened.
ARMY DOCTOR HOWARD B. LEVY ivho was sentenced to {
three years in prison for refusing to train medics bound for Viet-
nam, was ordered freed on $1,000 bail Monday by Supreme Court
Justice William O. Douglas.
Levy would have completed serving his sentence at the Federal
Penitentiary at Lewisburg, Pa. Aug. 14. Douglas acted to make sure
the case remains alive for consideration by the Court when it re-
turns in October from a summer recess.
Levy had been denied bail by Federal courts in Pennsylvania and
then by Justice William J. Brennan Jr. who has jurisdiction over the
courts in the state. Douglas subsequently overrode his colleague.

MULTIPLE NUCLEAR WARHEADS are carried on subma-
rine-borne Polaris missiles, a defense department spokesman dis-
closed yesterday.
The disclosure was made in closed-door testimony by the depart-
ment's director of research and engineering to a House subcommittee
which has been considering a mutual moratorium with the Soviet
Union on testing of multiple warhead missiles.
The testimony was made public following the House session.

GEN. LEWIS B. HERSHEY, director 'of the Selective Service
System, has been criticized by two former members of the Sele-
tive Service Appeals Board.
One of the recently resigned officials declared that Hershey is
"unable to distinguish between himself and the Selective Servie Sys-
tem" and that he "feels an increasing ownership of the system."
Hershey, who has offered no comment on this latest criticism, re-
sponded to calls for his resignation last May by saying "you hear a lot
of talk" about his retirement, "but you don't hear it from me."
