Observing the scene early Friday, power lines were Ivin in the streets like strewn spaghetti. Crews worked throughout the night with portable generators providing light for construction of lines and the Installation of many new poles. Expensive, damaged, transformers were replaced and miles of line repaired and replaced.

Fire sirens were heard sev eral times in Sandwich, but BEATEN WORKER RELATES STORY Signs Statement Friday; Incident Occurred in DeKalb much damage done to the car except for some scratches and small dents. At the home of James Robert Allen on Elm Street, the garage was turned at a 45 degree angle, limbs went through windows and the meter box was torn from the side of the house. The car was narked in the driveway and was not damaged. At the home of Doran Grief, only because tests were being a tree fell on the roof knock made to insure the proper functioning of the warning system. No fires were reported. The following report and resume of the damage in Sandwich was provided by Chroni cle Correspondent Mrs. Lester Hage: Much damage was done to the house of Lyle Hyatt at 507 West First Street when a tree fell on the root knocking down all the plaster in an upstairs bedroom,-Great damage wai done about the north side fuprooted; One 6i the trees feu across the road and onto a car at the Edwin Cabrtelsen home on Lafayette Street The other fen across the Toad on the house owned-by GuaJDberg heartr-g was rou- sirxcs snsaAP .

C, who was bpiUUy beatetw-un Aast Thursday, related the circumstances of his assault to DeKalb Acting Chief of Police Charles Leese and Officer Howard Crisler yesterday ait ernoon. In a signed statement. Smith told the two DeKaJb police officers that on August 7 he. Clarence Tracy and several other men had met at Scotties Tavern in the east end of De- Kalb's business section and gone out to a gravel pit south of Cortland to play poker. He said he won about SI 80. The group, according to the statement, returned to the tav ern where Tracy asked him to step outside and "match coins for $10.'" Smith said that he flipped the coin and that when he bent over to pick It up, Tracy clouted him on the head. I backed Tracy against the wall and pulled out my knife" the statement relates. The knife wasn't open. "I told him if he ever hit me again I'd cut him up" Smith's statement says. Smith told police he let go of Tracy and turned to walk away when he was hit a ter rific blow in the back of the head. He said that's all he can remember. The $180 Smith won In the poker game was not found on him when he wss discovered brutally beat en and bleeding at the Gornv ley gravel pit later that day. Police theorized that Tracy CAPE CANAVERAL, Fta An immensely tall rocket with knobby contrivance on top stood gaunt in an Air Force towel on Cape Canaveral to day. It apparently was ready for a widely anticipated "shoot lor the moon" Sunday. The Air Force and Defense Department still would not confirm that the hi- test, marking man's first uncertain leap to bridge the chasm be tween the planets, was imminent- i The maximum goal of the test Is to orbit an instrument ed satellite of under 100 pounds arpund the moon and obtain a crude television picture of its eternally hidden "dark side" Informed sources have noted that Sunday is the best day for such a test. If the rocketeers can not get It off then, they have the next three days when the moon still la relatively close to earth within 230,000 miles. Only a short period of each day' will provide a celestial alignment favorable for shoot ing and the whole thing could be celled off for another month. All signs of a major mi&sile launching were evident here Activity continued far into Friday night on the Air Force service tower, its bright lights showing through a squall line that enclosed the rape. All living, space in neat by motel as sold out. Whimpers were circulated by "beach telegraph." Ms for the Wml of shoot planned, the rocket standing in an extended thor missile tower was certainly like nothing ever fired here before. Apparently completely as sembled in the hut day or so, It looked to be slmost 100 feet tall and towered above other missiles in position along the cape skyline. The moon rocketeers can only hope to do a portion as well ss an electronic brain did Friday in sending up a Bo marc Interceptor missile against a B17 drone. The Bomarc was fired by pushbutton from Kingston. N.f, more than 1,500 miles from the launching site here. But, checked out for the first time by an all military crew, the Bomarc exceeded its mission of a near-miss which W'ould be enough to blow up the target with a nuclear war head.
