Truman appears as spry as usual on his 76th birthday as he cuts a slice of the cakt presented him at a surprise party in his Independence, home, Announcing he was "feeling fine," the ex-Chief Exeeu ~ive took a mile-and-a-half breakfast walk at "120 a minute" SCIENCE WEDS GOLD TO $PACE--A golden wedding ring pro- rides just enough of the precious metal to plate ceramic re- ceiving tubes for electronic space equipment. The gold-plated tubes, held by a model in Los Angeles, permit better electrical contacts. Made by the General Electric Company, they have been used in the Thor-Able-Star missile which served as the launching vehicle for Tiros IB weather-observation satellite. This photograph showing how youngsters at St. Alexius Hospital were introduced to take oxygen, nebulized medication and humidified ir via an. intriguingly designed helmet made nation-wide news when introduced last year. A minature plane complete with instrument panel is placed com- for(ably over the child's bed so that he can fancifully "take off" into space and actually enjoy the medication ~,hich previously caused frust- ration and anxiety. Through the courtesy of the North Dakota Air National Guard, the candidate who has successfully completed the course of oxygen therapy treatments is a,~rded a certificate, automatically making the boy an "tlonorary Pilot" and the girl an "Honorary Flight Nurse." The certificate is signed by the Adjutant General of the N. D-aJk. National Guard. (Photo by Leo LeLonde~ TRUST HI/~l, . CAPTAIN BRYAN./ J~CISX "~MH HIS GAb'~', WILL.
