    A DAY OF EXCITEMENT IN MEXICO CITY ... FOR ARRIVING THERE ON FRIDAY (OCTOBER 11) WERE THE TWO SOVIET COSMONAUTS, LIEUTENANT-COLONEL YURI GAGARIN -- FIRST MAN TO ORBIT THE EARTH -- AND VALENTINA TERESHKOVA, THE WORLD'S FIRST SPACEWOMAN. THEY FLEW IN TOGETHER FROM CUBA -- SPECIAL GUESTS OF HONOUR FOR THE 56TH ANNUAL CONFERENCE OF THE INTERNATIONAL AERONAUTICS FEDERATION, WHICH STARTS TOMORROW (MONDAY).

    MISS TERESHKOVA, WHOSE NAME HAS BEEN LINKED WITH THAT OF COSMONAUT ANDREI NIKOLAYEV, WAS ASKED ABOUT HER MARRIAGE PLANS. SHE SAID: "DOMINATION OF THE COSMOS IS MUCH MORE IMPORTANT THAN PERSONAL MATTERS." HER SPACE FLIGHT SHOWED THAT WOMEN COULD PLAY THEIR PART AND SHE HERSELF WAS READY FOR ANOTHER TRIP.

    LIEUTENANT-COLONEL GAGARIN SAID RUSSIA FAVOURED PRESIDENT KENNEDY'S PROPOSAL FOR SPACE CO-OPERATION. BUT, HE ADDED, WE ARE AHEAD IN THE SPACE AND INTEND TO KEEP THAT LEAD.
