  • Description

    THREE DISTINGUISHED AMERICANS ARE IN PARIS FOR THE CURRENT AIR SHOW. THEY ARE VICE-PRESIDENT HUBERT HUMPHREY AND ASTRONAUTS JAMES MCDIVITT AND EDWARD WHITE. THEY LANDED AT LE BOURGET AIRPORT IN PRESIDENT JOHNSON'S JET AIRCRAFT TODAY (FRIDAY).

    VICE-PRESIDENT HUMPHREY WILL ALSO HAVE TALKS WITH PRESIDENT DE GAULLE, TO WHO HE HAS BROUGHT PRESIDENT JOHNSON'S PERSONAL GREETINGS. HE DENIED THAT THE PRESENCE OF THE ASTRONAUTS WAS A COUNTER-ATTRACTION TO THE HUGE NEW SOVIET TRANSPORT, THE ANTONOV 22, AND SOVIET COSMONAUT YURI GAGARIN, WHO IS ALREADY AT THE SHOW.

    THE ASTRONAUTS ARE THE UNITED STATES' NEWEST. ONLY FORTNIGHT BEFORE THEIR ARRIVAL IN PARIS, JIM MCDIVITT AND SPACE-WALKER ED WHITE, BOTH NEWLY PROMOTED TO LIEUTENANT COLONEL, WERE HURTLING THROUGH SPACE AT THE START OF THEIR 97-HOUR JOURNEY.

    (PRESIDENT JOHNSON SAID HE WAS SENDING THEM TO PARIS TO SHARE THE "EXCITEMENT AND THRILLS" OF THEIR FLIGHT. AIR SHOW OFFICIALS SAID THEY WERE "DELIGHTED" TO HAVE THEM PRESENT).
