(Photo by Wheeler, Loma Linda) Lockheed Propulsion Company today announced receipt of a contract in excess of sL\ million dollars for development and production of solid propellant rocket motors for the Project Apollo launch system. The award was made by the Space and Information Systems Division of North American Aviation, principal contractor to the National .Aeronautics and Space Administration for the Apollo spacecraft The contract confirmed terms of work actually begun in February, 1962. when North American selected Lockheed for the assignment. The job of the launch escape system is to fire in any emergency occurring during the launch phase of a lunar exploratory flight, pulling the spacecraft and its three astronauts to a safe position from which parachutes can lower the vehicle to earth. Lockheed is developing the primary launch escape motor, a solid-fuel rocket approximately 15 feet long and two feet in diameter which develops almost instantly the thrust ol an intermediate range ballistic missile. A second Lockheed-built unit, called a pitch control' motor, is mounted horizontally near the nose of the escape system, and fires briefly to direct the trajectory of the spacecraft as it is drawn rapidly away from the Saturn launch vehicle. The Redlands firm has repeatedly ground-tested both motors, with an unblemished record of successful fffings, and has recently test-fired them togtther in a tie-down firing of the complete launch escape system. . - J -,c, 1.' • t 2:30 Pop your roast in the oven.

Continual governmental harassment Knott to give Calico to San Bernardino county SAN BER.VARDINO (UPI)-AI- leged "continual harassment by the /ederal government" has made Walter Knott decide to donate his Calico Ghost Town near Barstow to San Bernardino County. Knott, who also owns Knott's Berry Farm in Buena Park, said Wednesday that he and his family had invested $700,000 in restoring the town after they bought it in 1951. He said the gift would be made over a three-year period, during which time the family would continue to operate the concessions at Calico, one of the West's largest silver mining centers in the 1800s. Knott said the federal government had refused to sell him adjacent land for less than $1,000 an acre, while the county could buy it for $2.50 an acre. County supervisors planned to hold a public hearing "sometime this Summer" at which formal presentation will be made.
