"The recovery of the Faith 7 and its hero passenger Astronaut Gordon Cooper begins a round of triumphs for the sixth American space conqueror. After his 22 orbits that took him some 600,000 miles in 34 hours, Major Cooper's splashdown practically atop the recovery Carrier Kearsage, is the finest job of marksmanship in the history of manned space flight. After a jubilant welcome, and successful physical check-up aboard the carrier, comes the reunion with this wife and daughters in Honolulu, where the Coopers first met. The celebration at Hickam Air Foprce Base is practically a home-coming for them. An even more timely homecoming, is the parade in Florida from Patrick Air Force Base to Cocoa Beach, which brings the astronaut back where his historic flight commenced. In his first press conference, Major Cooper describes his space-ride orbit by orbit, including the few breath-taking moments when he manually guided his capsule for the critical, scorching re-entry into the atmosphere"--Hearst synopsis sheet

"Pope Paul VI's mission of peace to the United Nations brings fourteen crowded hours in New York. From his arrival at Kennedy Airport his motorcade goes through three boroughs of the city to his first stop at St. Patrick's Cathedral.

"The eight-day, 120-orbit flight of the Gemini V has an idyllic ending in the Atlantic waters south of Bermuda. Helicopters from the 'Lake Champlain' rendezvous with astronauts Gordon Cooper and Charles Conrad and carry them back from their bobbing capsule to a rousing welcome aboard the carrier. The two fliers have broken five world space flight records, but as they emerge from the copter they are as carefree and exuberant as schoolboys starting on vacation; astronaut Conrad even dances a little jig. One of the first orders of business--or pleasure--is receiving a telephone call from President Johnson, who promises them another trip. This, however, will be terrestrial, to share their experience with people of other lands. The recovered capsule is examined; their credentials are approved, and they round off their homecoming with some music from a jazz combo and the cutting of a ceremonial cake"--Hearst synopsis sheet

"News of the day cameras travel with Belgian troops flying American planes on their desperate rescue mission to Stanleyville. They reach the tragic spot just minutes after the Congolese rebels, or Simas, staged the massacre that cost the lives of American missionaries, Paul Carlson and Phyllis Rine. To the airport stream the survivors--some wounded, some still in a state of horror from the atrocities they had witnessed, some hysterically happy just to be alive. After the airlift to the safety of Leopoldville, the dead are the first to be taken off the plane. American flags are draped over the bodies of the two slain missionaries. Still trapped in the jungles are hundreds, perhaps a thousand people still in mortal danger from the savagery of the Simas"--Hearst synopsis sheet

"One of the most impressive and solemn ceremonies of the century is the funeral of Sir Winston Churchill. From Westminster Hall to St. Paul's Cathedral the coffin is borne on a gun carriage by sailors of the Royal Navy. At the Cathedral, Queen Elizabeth awaits the procession, the first reigning British monarch ever to attend the funeral of a commoner. Six other sovereigns, five heads of state and sixteen prime ministers also attend the rites. As the cortege makes its way through the streets of London, muffled drums roll and a gun is fired every minute for ninety minutes. Within the cathedral, the choir sings the Battle Hymn of the Republic in deference to Sir Winston's American mother and his lifelong work for unity between the United States and Britain. After the rites the body is borne once more by Grenadier Guards to the launch that bore it across the Thames. Cranes are dipped as the boat passes; four squads of jet fighters roar their final salute from the air"--Hearst synopsis sheet
