    IN HIS TRIBUTE, EARL RUSSELL SAID:



    "I SHOULD LIKE VERY MUCH TO EXPRESS MY PROFOUND ADMIRATION TO THE SKILL THAT HAS BEEN SHOWN IN THESE TWO MANNED SATELLITES WHICH, AFTER CIRCLING THE EARTH FOR A NUMBER OF TIMES, WERE LANDED WITHIN SIX MINUTES OF EACH OTHER IN A CHOSEN SPOT. I THINK IT IS ONE OF THE MOST AMAZING FEATS OF SKILL, AND IT DESERVES CONGRATULATION FROM THE WHOLE WORLD."



    "I SHOULD LIKE TO ADD JUST THIS: THAT NOW WHILE THE U.S.S.R. IS DEFINITELY ON TOP - THOUGH WE DON'T KNOW HOW LONG THAT MAY REMAIN - NOW IS THE MOMENT WHEN GENEROSITY IN THE PURSUIT OF PEACE COULD BE SHOWN WITHOUT ANYBODY SUPPOSING THAT IT IS A SIGN OF WEAKNESS, AND I VERY MUCH HOPE THAT THIS OPPORTUNITY WILL BE TAKEN BY THE SOVIET GOVERNMENT IN ORDER THAT WE CAN ALL LIVE IN A HAPPY, AND NOT A DISMAL, FUTURE."
