Space
Mercury-Redstone 1, an attempt to launch an unmanned Mercury spacecraft aboard a Redstone rocket, lasted just 2 seconds, with the rocket rising just 4 inches, when the engine shut down. The spacecraft's escape tower then launched and landed 400 yards away, and the drogue parachutes deployed as they would have with a splashdown. The problem was caused by plugs at the base of the Redstone pulling out in the wrong order. The spacecraft was reused aboard a different Redstone booster for Mercury-Redstone 1A on December 19, 1960.

Newsy Lalonde, 83
. Canadian lacrosse and hockey player. Édouard Cyrille Lalonde, a native of Cornwall, Ontario, played goal and then forward with eight professional lacrosse clubs (1905-1924), mainly in Montreal and Vancouver, scoring 363 goals in 205 games, playing on three Minto Cup championship teams (1911, 1918, 1920). He was named by a panel of journalists in 1950 as the best Canadian lacrosse player of the first half of the 20th century, and was a charter member of the Canadian Lacrosse Hall of Fame in 1965. Mr. Lalonde is best known today for his hockey achievements as a centre with the Montreal Canadiens (1909-11, 1912-22); Renfrew Creamery Kings (1909-10); Vancouver Millionaires (1911-12); Saskatoon Crescents/Sheiks (1922-26); and New York Americans (1926), with combined totals of 363 goals and 68 assists in 297 regular season games and 16 goals and 4 assists in 13 playoff games. He coached the Canadiens (1915-21, 1932-35); Americans (1926-27); and Ottawa Senators (1929-31), compiling a regular season record of 144-167-28, leading the Canadiens to their first Stanley Cup in 1916 and the National Hockey League championship in 1919. Mr. Lalonde was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 1950.

C. V. Raman, 82. Indian physicist. Sir Chandrasekhara Venkata Raman, with his student K.S. Krishnan, discovered in 1928 that when light traverses a transparent material, some of the deflected light change wavelength and amplitude. He was awarded the 1930 Nobel Prize in Physics "for his work on the scattering of light and for the discovery of the effect named after him." Sir C.V. died four days after suffering a heart attack.

War
In Operation Ivory Coast, 50 U.S. Green Berets helicoptered into and around the Sontay prisoner of war camp, 23 miles from Hanoi, in an attempt to rescue 50-100 of their comrades, only to find that the captives had been evacuated. After a battle in which one U.S. soldier was wounded and an estimated 25 guards were killed, all the Green Berets returned to their 10 craft and then back to their base in Thailand. While returning to their base, the commandos rescued a pilot who had been shot down while flying cover for their mission. In diversionary tactics, F-105s flying escort for their rescue helicopters broke away and attacked antiaircraft and troop sites near the camp. Bombing of North Vietnam intensified.

U.S. war casualties for the week numbered 65 dead--the highest total in 11 weeks--and 335 wounded, many of them injured by booby traps and mines. South Vietnamese casualties were 267 dead and 626 wounded, while North Vietnamese and Viet Cong dead numbered 1,073. U.S. Command in Saigon said that air strikes during the last week possibly set the Communist supply timetable by months.

Montreal 11 @ Hamilton 4 (Montreal won 2-game total points series 43-26)

The Alouettes intercepted 5 Hamilton passes and were successful in protecting and extending the lead that they carried into the game. Montreal quarterback Sonny Wade, who also doubled as the team’s punter, punted 70 yards for a single on the last play of the 1st quarter to give the Alouettes a 1-0 lead. The Tiger-Cats responded with a 53-yard gain on a pass from Wally Gabler to Gord Christian from the Hamilton 45-yard line to the Montreal 12. The Montreal defense held, and Tommy-Joe Coffey kicked a 13-yard field goal to give the Tiger-Cats a 3-1 lead. Hamilton increased its lead to 4-1--reducing Montreal’s lead in the series to 33-26--a few minutes later on a 70-yard punt single by Joe Zuger, who backed up Mr. Gabler at quarterback. The Alouettes scored the game’s only touchdown late in the 2nd quarter when Bobby Lee Thompson made his second interception of the game and then Hamilton defensive back John Williams was called for pass interference against Garry Lefebvre at the Tiger-Cats’ 2-yard line. Moses Denson rushed in from 3 yards for the touchdown and George Springate converted to give the Alouettes an 8-4 halftime lead. The Alouettes added a single in the 3rd quarter and scored a safety touch in the 4th quarter when Mike Widger sacked Mr. Zuger in the Hamilton end zone. Mr. Wade completed 12 of 26 passes for 163 yards and gave up an interception to defensive tackle John Barrow--playing the last game of a 14-year Hall of Fame career--who returned the ball 10 yards. Mr. Gabler completed just 12 of 29 passes for 199 yards; Larry Fairholm was the other Montreal player to make an interception off Mr. Gabler. Mr. Zuger completed 1 of 4 passes for 9 yards and gave up interceptions to Al Phaneuf and Mark Kosmos. Moses Denson led all rushers with 60 yards on 13 carries, while Bruce Van Ness added 31 on 10 carries. Mr. Gabler led the Tiger-Cats with 42 yards rushing. Mr. Lefebvre led all receivers with 73 yards on 4 receptions, and teammate Peter Dalla Riva caught 2 passes for 40. Dave Fleming led the Tiger-Cats with 62 yards on 4 receptions, while Garney Henley, who had caught just 3 passes during the regular season while being a full-time defensive back, caught 4 passes for 49 yards. Mr. Wade punted 13 times for a 47-yard average, while Mr. Zuger punted 10 times for a 44-yard average. Mr. Lefebvre and Mr. Williams had a running battle throughout the game which culminated in a fight early in the 4th quarter and the ejection of both players. 24,270 fans were in attendance at Civic Stadium in the last game played there under that name; in 1971 it was renamed Ivor Wynne Stadium.

Scandal
In New York District Court, Judge Kimba Wood sentenced Michael Milken, a former employee of Drexel Burnham Lambert, Incorporated to 10 years in prison for securities fraud. Mr. Milken had helped to facilitate the corporate takeover boom of the 1980s through the promotion of high-risk, high-yield securities known as "junk bonds." He had pleaded guilty in April 1990 to six felony counts of fraud and agreed to pay fines and restitution totalling $600 million. Judge Wood said a prison term was necessary to deter others in the financial industry from engaging in similar practices.
