Dr. Arnold H. Lowe, formerly pastor of 'Westminster Presbyterian Church in Minneapolis, will give the first of three -Lenten Bible lectures at Trinity Presbyterian Church at 7:30 p.m. today. The service in -the church at 740 N. 4th Ave. is open to the public. The meeting will be preceded at 6:30 p.m. by a congregational dinner in the church dining room. ·The Rev. Dr. Glenn C. McGee, pastor, said that the Dr. Lowe has been a winter visitor in Tucson for 25 years. His church in Minneapolis was one of the nation's leading Presbyterian congregations. Force flies planes in unbelieve ably close formations about the field. Another event of Aerospace Days is a luncheon March 18 sponsored by the Air Force Association. Featured will be a talk by Paul B u r k e of ABC-TV's "Twelve O'Clock High" about operations of U.S. bombers from bases in England in World War n. The luncheon will be held at Pioneer International Hotel. In addition to the fighters, bombers and cargo planes to be on display at D-M, there will be a model of the new Titan 36 rocket to be 'used as a space Music Educators Choose Hartsell Dr. 0. M.

And a Vulcan bomber will be flown here by a Royal Air Force detachment at Offutt AFB in Nebraska. Similarly displayed will be two Air Force missiles that are launched from the air for different purposes; These are an air-to-ground strategic Hound Dog and-a Quail decoy missile that will be sent here f r o m Norton AFB in California. Teamed with a B52 bomber, the Hound Dog gives the Air Force a 'weapon with which to reach out from an approaching plane and find- a target ahead. The Hound Dog can change its course in flight to give it an added chance of success. The Quail is carried in the bomb bay of the B52 to save its life if necessary. A f t e r being launched, the Quail can simulate its "parent" B52 in the sky, confuse enemy defenses and attract fire that otherwise would be directed at the bomber itself. Another part of the show will be the appearance of drill teams from colleges and universities in nearly all of the 50 states for the sixth annual Sunshine City Drill Competition. The gates of the base will be thrown open to the public between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. on March 19 and between noon and 5 p.m. on March 20.

Plan Bogged By ROBERT K. WALKER PHOENIX--(ff^-Despite a personal plea by Gov. Sam Goddard, a faiii to create a state finance department remained bogged down today in the Senate judiciary committee. The governor appeared briefly before the committe- to "urge that this not be delayed any further." "I feel that time is running out," Goddard told the committee yesterday. He asked that the committee work on a House- passed bill. Goddard left behind one of his aides, Dennis DeConcini, to work with the committee on the bill, but they never got to the measure. Sen. Harold Giss, D-Yuma, said that he had promised a hearing on a bill to revise the state military code, and the committee spent V/ 2 hours discussing the proposal with seven generals. One of them was former U.S. Sen. Barry Goldwaten After the hearing there were not enough committee members left in the building to continue work. Palmer charged that Giss had wasted the afternoon on the hearing with a "diatribe" and that he wanted to "keep us here a month." Giss replied that the hearing had to be held and "you can go home now if you like." The finance department bill became mired in the committee Monday when Giss and Palmer disagreed on what should be done with-the House bill. Under the House measure, a department would be created with divisions of budgeting, control, purchasing and planning. Palmer said this bill should be amended in places and sent back to the House. Giss said this would be impossible and the entire bill would have to be rewritten. Giss said his committee would hold some more meetings this week and hopefully would get to the finance department bill. He had planned to clear several House bills yesterday, Giss said, but they too will have to be taken up at the next meeting. So far, no House measures urned Spacecraft Sought By Experts From Kitt Peak Kitt Peak scientists were hunting through the desert on the White Sands Missile Range today for a spacecraft to see if it pointed a telescope last night at a star in the; "Constellation Perseus. The question is whether film in the spacecraft was exposed to the strange behavior of the very hoi star Zeta. This was the eleventh adventure into space by the Kitt Peak National Observatory here from White Sands. The liftoff from the White Sands launch pad was perfect at 7:23 p.m. But before the flight was over, there was evidence that the Kitt Peak scientists again may have been betrayed by the altitude control system in the rocket. Kitt Peak this time was offering its services with a spacecraft to an outside scientist, Dr. Donald Morton of Princeton University, as it does to visiting astronomers with ground-based telescopes. Shortly before liftoff, John Person, director of the K i t t Peak computer division here, was on the .telephone in the computer room talking to Russel Nidey, manager of space systems, who was in the block house at White Sands. Person had been on the telephone for five hours feeding in- formation from the computer to set the gyroscopes in the rocket. They had to be adjusted precisely with the tilt of the rocket and Zeta's position at launch tune so that gas jets could point the spacecraft at the star. "T-minus 30 seconds," Person repeated over the telephone, handing it to Dr. Joseph Chamberlain, director of the K i t t Peak space division. Chamberlain said: "It's going out the tower" as he heard the roar of the engines, and then "Let's hope we get something Russ." The tension in the computer room mirrored that in the blockhouse as the scientists and engineers waited to find if months of work would bear fruit. "Burn-out at. 51.2 seconds," called Person,' repeating messages from Nidey. "Yaw is off 2 degrees. It will shortly pass apogee.' The rocket was carrying the spacecraft to its height of 119 miles. In the blockhouse, the K i t t Peak space men were hunting through reams of telemetry records to find if the target was found. And then it was over. The parachute presumably had opened and the spacecraft was down 57 miles from the launch pad. Nidey fed numbers to Person, who in turn handed them to the computer to find if the gyroscopes had been satisfied. "There is evidence from the gyroscope signals that the attitude control system did not work perfectly," said Nidey in his controlled voice. He added, however, "They did find the star at above 100 miles. If it locked on, there would have been 90 seconds of time, which might have been enough." Morton was interested in the stellar wind from Zeta that apparently is throwing material out of the star at a fantastic speed. His evidence would be in the far ultraviolet radiation f r o m Carbon 4 and an ion of silicon that he has detected being thrown out of other hot stars in Orion. In contrast with the gentle wind from our sun of "only" 300 miles an hour, the evidence is that these stellar winds blow at 1,200 miles per hour. SENIOR CITIZENS .
