Satellite Twins Give US Big Boost In Space Travel By HOWARD BENEDICT Associated Press Staff Writer Three new United States satellites circled the globe today seeking data for navigation and spy- in-the-sky space systems. The trio soared aloft Wednesday in one of this nation's most productive days in the space age. Two of the satellites rode skyward in the nose of a Thor-Able- Star rocket fired from Cape Can- averal Wednesday night. One is the 190-pound Transit 4B, partial ly powered by a nuclear generator. The other is a 240-pound "Dumbell" package which is intended to stretch out more than 100 feet in two weeks in a satellite stabilization experiment. The satellite twins gave the U.S. a big boost toward a space navigation network to guide ships, planes, submarines and missiles. Pays $25 Ransom For Abducted Pet LA PUENTE, Calif. (AP) Peaches, a 10-month-old toy poodle, is back with its tearfully happy, 8-year-old master Tony Hewitt. But there's no hero to thank: Tony's mother had to pay $25 ransom to a teen-ager. The Pasadena Independent today reported this story of Peaches' abduction and return: Tony was walking to the candy store with Peaches and a chum when a car pulled up Sunday afternoon. Two teen-agers jumped out, grabbed the dog, told Tony, "We're taking him for a ride"— and left the child in tears. Mr. and Mrs. Chuck Hewitt, Tony's parents, summoned police. But no clues turned up. Hewitt, a cement contractor, says the dog is worth $350. Youths have been stealing dogs from neighbors, Hewitt says, and selling them. On Monday, Mrs. Hewitt went to the scene of the crime, a nearby bowling alley parking lot. She asked several teen-agers about the dog. They shook their heads. Then she offered $25 reward, and one youth said: "I may be able to help—but I don't want to get mixed up with the law." Mrs. Hewitt promised not to identify him to police, and the boy, about 16 or 17, left. That night Mrs. Hewitt heard from an anonymous, but apparently youthful, phone caller, who said: "You can get the dog back if you'll meet me in three minutes at a church parking lot." Mrs. Hewitt rushed to the lot. Minutes later, the boy appeared with Peaches and demanded $25 ransom, saying it has to go to the boys who stole the dog. Mrs. Hewitt gave him the money. The boy returned the dog and fled. Today Hewitt is offering $50 reward for arrest of the dognapers, but adds: "I don't want anything done to the boy who returned the dog."

Explosion At School PRINCETON - A boiler supplying heat to the Princeton School Building blew up yesterday causing a switch from gas to oil heat. The explosion took place about 0:30 a.m., according to Marvin McCollough, shop teacher, who is in charge today during the absence of Charles McAnarney, principal. McCullough attributed the explosion to a gas accumulation somewhere in the system. "It blew the doors off," he said, adding that Stan Shephard, custodian was in the room at the time of the explosion but was not injured. The boiler must be sealed for gas, he explained, but need not be sealed for oil which will be burned until repairs are completed. AMUULANCl iEH. OM I H 2-1 JJ|i 0 1 I AU A. Earlier, the 35th rocket in the Discoverer series flung a satellite into orbit from Vandenberg Air Force Base, Calif., in another try at developing, means of recovering capsules from space. Within a few days, the Discoverer is scheduled to eject a capsule which Hawaii-based planes will attmpt to snare as it parachutes to earth. Eight such capsules have been retrieved in previous tests. Perfecting the technique is essential for recovering data from the Midas missile de tector and Samos reconnaissance satellites. The successes raised the total of successful U.S. satellites to 59. The Soviet Union has orbited 13. In other missile-space developments Wednesday: A Pershing artillery missile scored its 22nd success in 26 test firings on a short-range hop of less than 220 miles from Cape Canaveral. The Nike-Zeus missile killer system registered a double triumph at White Sands, N.M. In one test, Zeus radar tracked a special missile test target. In the other, the launch technique and ground electronics equipment were given a trial. The Air Force announced plans to send into orbit next month a 10-pound satellite named Oscar (for orbiting satellite carrying amateur radio) to beam signals to more than 200,000 amateur radio operators in this country. Intended to be kicked loose from a Discoverer, Oscar will enable the hams to practice the art of tracking and observing a moving space object. In the only failure, an Argo D8 rocket broke apart shortly after it lifted off from Point Arguello, Calif. The shot was intended to probe briefly the Van Allen radiation belt with a parcel of instruments. Jamb SINCE !»»• OT TA WA.K.A NSAS DONOVAN - John, past 76, passed away yesterday.

RECORD DEARING — Funeral Services for Mrs. Nettie Hanks Dearing will be conducted from the Mortuary Friday afternoon at two o'clock. Dr. Raymond Jennings officiating. Interment Highland Cemetery. McVey-DENGEL MORTUARY Ph. CH 2-2323 (Continued from Pg. 1) Later, when ilness ravaged his body, his associates quoted him as saying he wanted to return to this community, his hometown, to end his days among^ "those friends and neighbors who for so long have given me a love and loyalty unsurpassed in any annals." He was brought to this town of 7,000 persons Oct. 31 from Baylor Hospital in Dallas, 75 miles southeast of here.. A diagnosis of cancer was made shortly after he entered Baylor Oct. 2 for a series of tests to determine what was causing a chronic back ailment. Surviving are two sisters, Mrs. W. A. Thomas of Dallas and Mrs. S. E. Hartley of Bonham, and his brother, Richard Rayburn of Bonham. They are the last of a family that once numbered 11 children. A bachelor, Rayburn's only marriage was dissolved several months after it took place in 1927. He detested Washington's social whirl of which he had to be a part and preferred to spend his leisure evenings in his homey rooms in a Washington apartment hotel. There he would sit for hours with friends, nibbling at a steak and sipping bourbon in moderation while watching television. He was an avid boxing and wrestling fan. He loved good food and good drink and enjoyed sharing it with his intimates. Rayburn considered the fancy victuals served at most Washington social affairs as "stuff for the birds." Friends suspected that Rayburn would have been a good, or doting father. He loved children, especially boys. "God," he once confided to a friend, "what I would give for a tow-headed boy to take fishing." Fishing was his favorite form of relaxation. He would go anywhere the fish were reported biting. To him, landing a scrappy bass was an accomplishment. He was sensitive about two things, his lack of hair and his ill- starred marriage. He often accused photographers of focusing cameras in such a way as to emphasize his complete baldness. He wouldn't discuss his marriage to Miss Metze Jones of Valley View, Tex., a sister of former Rep. Marvin Jones of Texas. They married on Oct. 15, 1927, and several months later the marriage was dissolved. She now is Mrs. Jeff Nelly of Amarillo, Tex. Although a God-fearing man and a respecter of all religions, Rayburn did not publicly embrace any religion until he was 74 years old. At that age he was baptized into the Tioga, Tex., Primitive Baptist Church. In a private hideaway in the Capitol, Rayburn spent many so ciable hours with his intimates. Known as the "Board of Education," the hideout was a gathering place for a select group of friends at the close of almost every daily session of the House. Discussions covered a wide range of subjects—politics, family matters, sports, current events, legislative strategy. Harry S. Truman was enjoying a social drink there late in the afternoon of April 12, 1945, when he received word that President Franklin D. Roosevelt had died. Rayburn enjoyed so-called "shaggy dog" stories but didn't like jokes "that reflect on womanhood." Rayburn's down-to-earth politi- cal philosophy could be summed up this way: "In politics you have to know how the people feel and what they are thinking. If you don't feel what you can't see, you are dead. You have to be fair. You have to have vision. You have to learn to give and take. You must compromise when necessary. You have to work hard and keep in touch with your people. You have to have faith in the people because they are good and fair. Having good, common sense isn't enough; you have to exercise it." It was this philosophy which made Rayburn's name synono- mous with American politics and helped him scribe a lasting page in congressional history. His records were not only those of longevity—he served in the House more than 48 consecutive years and was Us speaker more than twice as long as the previous record-holder, Henry Clay. He left his imprint on far-reaching legislation. The Rural Electrification Administration, the rural highway program, the Securities and Exchange Act, the Federal Communications Act and antitrust laws were among his legislative children.
