however, that the campaign is

Even with the 90 extra minutes
yesterday, Cooper could not take
off on his planned 22-orbit, 34-
hour mission. The launching was
held up more than two hours when
a fuel pump had to be replaced in
a diesel engine which moves the
launch pad service tower away
from the Atlas booster rocket.
Once that was fixed,-the radar
problem cropped up at Bermuda
and the effort was called off for
the day.
"This was a very realistic sim-
ulation," Cooper commented jok-
ingly. "I was just getting to the
real fun part . . . we'll try again

minute wait after the scrub but
before the service tower could be
rolled around the rocket again so
technicians could extricate him.
High Spirits
The postponement did not dam-
pen Cooper's high spirits or his
enthusiasm to make the long
flight. His medical advisers re-
ported him in excellent physical
and mental shape.
Other elements of the launch-

(Third in a Series)
A director at an eastern ob-
servatory was asked recently
by his university's buildings-
and-grounds chief when the
astronomers were going to
move to their new offices so
the observatory could be torn
"Where are you 'going to
move the telescopes?" asked
the director.
"Move the telescopes?" re-
sponded the B-and-G man.
"We didn't think you want-
ed them any more; we
thought you were all doing
space science!"
This is a story Prof. Lawrence
H. Aller tells. He had been a
member of the astronomy de-
partment since 1948 when he
decided to leave for the Univer-
sity of California at Los An-
geles last spring.
The quote "obviously refers
to the University," one mem-
ber of the astronomy depart-
ment points out. "From a Cali-
fornian's point of view, we are
in the East."

A common belief in the "dignity
and equality of all men" is the
closest bond linking the United
States and the emerging nations
of modern Africa, Assistant Sec-
retary of State G. Mennen Wil-
liams said in a lecture last night.
Unfortunately, the fact that we
have not yet assured full and
equal rights to all Americans is a
factor which tends to weaken this
same bond, he continued.
The six-time former governor of
Michigan cited the role of the
United States in furthering the
African independence movement,
mentioning "our traditional op-
position to colonialism." State De-
partment policy in Africa for the
past few years "has supported the
creation of a family of genuinely
independent, economically viable
nations," he said.

The court was the most im-
portant center for music during
the latter part of the Renaissance
in Germany, Prof. Ingo Seidler of
the German department said yes-
terday in a lecture on 'renais-
sance Music at the Court of
Prof. Seidler demonstrated some
of the various types of : acred and
secular music composed at Mun-

ich in the sixteenth century. This
period in music saw "the culmin-
ation of Renaissance trends and
new developments. At this time
the court at Munich under Al-
brecht IV was the most splendid
and culturally active."
The chief composer was a Bel-
gian, Orlandus Lassus, who com-
posed innumerable madrigals and
motets. Lassus was the summation
of the Renaissance period of music.

His music is written in old art
forms but like Bach's work, it is
the most excellent music using
these forms.
Varied Art Forms
Prof. Seidler noted that the art
forms of sixteenth century Ger-
many were very different from
today's. There were no operas,
oratorios, trios, quartets or son-
atas. Instead, composers used
voices and instruments in equal
balance, and composed madrigals
and motets which depended on
independent harmonies.
The instruments also differed.
The recorder was the predominate
wind instrument. A front :.lute,
this instrument was used not only
during t h e Renaissance, b u t
through the baroque period ofI
Chamber Ensembles I
The viol, usually a six string
fretted instrument, was the main
stringed bowed instrument. The
lute, a mandolin-like instrument,
was used mostly for the smaller
chamber types of ensembles.
The instruments of the sixteenth
century occupied a different posi-
tion in composition. They were;

Portugese-held Angola have a long
way to go before they achieve their
goal of independence, Secretary
Williams commented. "Further-
more, there is no evidence that
these revolutionaries are Commun-
ists or are Communist supported."
Concerning the white suprema-
cist Republic of South Africa, he
said that "although we are his-
torically allied with that nation,
we will continue to publicly cen-
sure their policy of apartheid."
Secretary Williams explained the
process by which the United
States government makes its de-
cisions concerning foreign aid to
Africa. "There are three different
steps which contribute to these
decisions," he said.

Robertson StudyDiscovers
Qualified Students ailn
Although competition for admission to top institutions. is in-
creasing and screening processes are more effective, students with
high motivation for college and the necessary degree of intelligence
and preparation are flunking out," Associate Dean of the literary
college James H. Robertson pointed out in a recent article in The
New York Times Magazine.
The article, entitled "Why So Many Flunk Out," sums up
several of the "frequent and recurrent" reasons for academic failure.
A major problem, according to Dean Robertson, is parental pres-
sure pushing students into status institutions or a college not of
their own choosing, or forcing them to attend college when they
would rather do something else. Thus students arrive at school
without sufficient incentive to study and succeed.
