Univ. of Oregon Library EUGENE, OREGON Faulty radar delays Cooper's flight 24 hours CAPE CANAVERAL. Fla. (UPD Gordon Cooper's attempt to fly 22 times around the world was postponed for 24 hours today by a faulty tracking radar on which his safety and the success of his mission depended. Walter C. Williams, operations chief of the Mercury space pro gram, announced that a second attempt would be made at 6 a.m. PDT Wednesday. Today's postponement Was an nounced at 7:57 a.m. PDT. 12 min- utes before the Air Force major was to have vaulted into the sky atop an Atlas rocket for a 34 hour trip through space. Cooper, 36, whoso mission is to set a new space flight record for Americans, had been in his cramped Faith 7 cabin 4 hours and 19 minutes when the reluctant decision was made to scrub the flight. Radar Is Essential The radar trouble developed at the Bermuda tracking station on which Mercury controllers depend to determine whether a spacecraft has gone successfully into orbit. The radar will be given a final check at 4 p.m. today. The trouble with the radar coin cided with failure of the diesel engine which moves the 150-foot, 450-ton service tower away from the Atlas booster before blastoff. The engine failure, first in the memory of cape veterans, forced a delay of more than two hours in Cooper's planned liftoff. Then the radar difficulties necessitated a scrub for the day. Williams said the radar defect at first appeared to be minor. Then conditions "deteriorated as the count progressix!." Other than tlie diesel and radar troubles, the preflight check, known as the countdown, had pro ceeded with unusual smoothness. Cooper and the weather, the spacecraft and its booster were all right for the shot. After the postponement, Cooper was eased out of his spacecraft and returned to Hangar E, his preflight home on the cape. He had started the day at 12:50 a.m. PDT. Cooper had been reported "in good spirits" as be awaited his fate aboard the Faith 7. Williams remarked at a news conference after the scrub that the astro naut's 4 hours and 19 minutes in his cabin was "a very good simu lation" of space flight. Cooper's mission is to spend 34 hours in space to check the ef fects of weightlessness on human beings and to perform tests vital to the forthcoming two-man Gem ini Apollo moon flights. President Kennedy was notified of the scrub a minute before it was announced publicly at the cape, according to Press Secre tary Pierre Salinger. Salinger said the President was notified in a telephone call from the cape. WEATHER Mostly fair, possible thunder storms in mountains; highs near 70; lows 32-37.

CENTRAL OREGON'S DAILY NEWSPAPER 60th Year Eight Pages Bend, Deschutes County, Oregon, Tuesday, May 14, 1963 Ten Cents No-135 Sum for band to remain, on 6 to 5 vote By Garald Drapeau Bulletin Staff Writer Bend city budget committeemen gave tentative okays to all pro posed allotments for the budget items reviewed in a two-hour meeting held last night in city hall. The group moved rapidly through most of the items consid ered, but a lengthy argument rag ed over a proposed $3,000 appro priation for support of the mu nicipal band. Only a tie-breaking vote by Chairman Maurice Shel ton saved the appropriation aft er committeemen deadlocked their vote on the issue, five to five. Most of those opposing the ex penditure contended that band members benefit most, playing as a "hobby." It was also pointed out that only one other Oregon city, Ashland, has a budget allot ment for municipal band support. But committeemen favoring its support were convinced enough of the public benefit derived to con sider the proposed sum justified. Money Added In other areas, committeemen added $500 for purposes of adver tising the city of Bend to prospec tive industrialists and tourists. Another $500 goes annually toward publication of a Deschutes County- financed brochure which adver tises the county as .a-unit; , . . Two items reviewed last night have been raised substantially from last year's fund. One, gain ing tentative approval, is a $105,- 830 police department fund, up from last year's allotment by $7, 756.18. Added costs will send the police chief to a three-month FBI school in Washington, D.C., and furnish needed police equipment. Also raised by $2,725 is a $3,825 figure for the planning depart ment. A proposed comprehensive tri-county planning program is re sDonsible for the increase. Other items receiving tentative approval were $42,832 for public recreation, down from last year's S43.583.06: and $26,934.14 for the park department, up slightly from last year's $26,746.22. . New to the 1963-64 budget is a $1,000 allotment for fencing of the Gilchrist footbridge, from which two Bend youngsters have tum bled to their death in Ihe past year. Venezuela ousts U.S. educator CARACAS, Venezuela (UPI) - A U.S. educator has been expelled from Venezuela because a news paper here quoted him as saying that the way to end Communist terrorism in Venezuela would be to kill a score of top Reds, in cluding those who are sheltering behind parliamentary immunity. Philip Taylor, associate profes sor of Latin American studies at Johns Hopkins University, was es corted to the airport Monday by three plainclothes policemen and put aboard a plane bound for New York. Taylor said he was "grossly misquoted" by the Caracas news paper which published what it said was an "interview" with him Monday. The newspaper quoted him as saying that "Violence and subver sion in Venezuela will be wiped out only when the government... commits a score of homicides." "In that way, the heads and di rectors of the wave of terrorism affecting this country will be finished off." the interviewer said Taylor told him. "These gentle men are in the Senate and Cham ber of Deputies. "They are first and foremost among those who must be ell minated. For instance, Dr. (Com munist boss and Congressman) Gustavo Machado and his brother Muardo." "I did not say what the news paper said I did," said Taylor who came here to participate in a week-lone seminar on "the chal lenge of democratic ideas spon .wired bv the U.S. Emhassy.

Board favors final, binding arbitration WASHINGTON (UPI) A presi dential emergency board today re commended final and binding ar bitration as one of the means of averting a nationwide rail strike over the issue of featherbed jobs on the railroads. A long dispute over the rail roads' plans to eliminate fire men's jobs on diesel locomotives has resulted in a threat by the railroads' operating unions to strike, even though the Supreme Court earlier this year upheld management's right to change work rules. President Kennedy received the emergency board's report Monday night and met with the three-man panel today. He said in a state ment that the companies ana me unions should give "the most seri ous consideration" to the board's recommendations. The President said there is "no time to be lost for completing... agreement in this dispute, and added: The future of collective bar gaining may well depend upon the reaching of an agreement by ne gotiation cs provided by the Rail way Labor Act. Kennedy s a i d the federal gov ernment was prepared to give whatever assistance needed "to help the parties reach a just and equitable settlement, but the ulti mata dependence must be upon their (union and company) own efforts." The board's report recommend ed eliminating firemen's jobs as thev become vacant for one rea son or another. And where dis putes crop up over elimination of jobs, the board proposed negotia tions for settlement by local nego tiation or, in event mis fails, by final and binding arbitration. The board proposed that lull- time firemen with 10 or more years seniority be kept on their jobs. Those witn less tnan tu years seniority would be transfer red to other comparable jobs, with a guarantee of no cut In pay. Others on less permanent status would receive severance pay or would have the choice of being placed on a priority list for hiring when a new job opened up. Hope seen for steel accord PITTSBURGH, Pa.

However, failing this or in case an understanding is reached McDonald said the executive board would be reconvened "to determine what action we may take."
