Astronaut S. David Griggs, who flew on the space shuttle in 1985 and was in training to pilot a mission in November, died Saturday when the vintage plane he was flying slammed into a field, authorities said. Jeff Carr, a NASA spokesman at the Johnson Space Center in Houston, said that Griggs was flying a World War II North American T-6, "a vintage trainer airplane," and that he apparently was performing aerobatics at the time of the accident. "I was told he was out here practicing this morning and was going to go to an air show at Clarksville, Ark.," said Peter Kerwin, an investigator for the Federal Aviation Administration who was on the scene.

Vice President Dan Quayle, chairman of the National Space Council, said today he would have a hard time turning down an invitation to fly on a space shuttle. "I don't think that the space race is over," Quayle said in a lunch interview with reporters. "I think that we will win the eventual control of space because of our advanced and superior technology." Asked if he would like to fly on a space shuttle as did Sen. Jake Garn (R-Utah) and Rep. Bill Nelson (D-Fla.), Quayle said, "I have not asked.

Your editorial (Jan. 27), "What's Ahead in Space," is another example of "cheap-shot" journalism. You state that next month's shuttle mission, with Sen. Jake Garn (R-Utah) along for the ride, "will be more of a public-relations show than a program necessity," referring of course, to the senator's presence. I beg to differ. Garn sits on the Senate Appropriations Committee and he is the chairman on the subcommittee for the Department of Housing and Urban Development and independent agencies, of which the National Aeronautics and Space Administration is included.

Senate, struggling to approve a bailout of the savings-and-loan industry, refused today to dump M. Danny Wall, the administrator who presided over the thrifts crisis and gave huge tax breaks to wealthy investors. The Senate rejected, 61 to 38, an amendment to require President Bush to reappoint Wall, subject to Senate confirmation, as chief of the new Office of Savings Assns. By rejecting the amendment, the Senate essentially "grandfathered," or protected, Wall in his new duties until mid-1991 when his current job expires.
