THURSDAY. MARCH 10, 1966 T U C S O N D A I L Y C I T I Z E N PA6f I Kitt Peak Rocket Was Off Target An Aerobee rocket has failed to point at a star in the Constellation Perseus, giving Kitt Peak a failure on its lith flight into space from the White Sands Missile Range. Russell Nidey, systems manager of the Kitt Peak space division, said today that the rocket's scientific payload was recovered in excellent condition and would have worked if the rocket had pointed properly when launched Tuesday. The pointing is done by the attitude control system which uses a pair of gyroscopes to control jets of helium gas. The target of the experiment was the very hot star Zeta, which is thought to produce a stellar wind of enormous power, perhaps throwing out material at 1,200 miles per hour. The attitude control system was able to capture control on two axes but not on the third, around which the spacecrafi tumbled. As it spun hi space, the telescope briefly "saw" Zeta but for much too short a time to get scientific data, Nidey said This is the second failure o: the attitude control system, but Nidey said, "It is a good sys tern and we still have confidence in its use." After the spacecraft soared to a height of 119 miles, a parachute brought it back to earth in a soft landing. Nidey said he will remain at White Sands until he finds the Aerobee booster section, which was separated and made a hard landing at another spot. This is necessary to determine the cause of the failure, he said. NOBODY HELPED 'VICTIM' Don't Collapse In Cartersville CARTERSVILLE, Ga. - « An experiment to learn how bfilpful the average person would be in an emergency disappointed three teen-agers, one of whom was a "victim" sprawled on a downtown sidewalk. As Becky Champion lay prone, 27 persons saw her, 57 automo- iles cruised past without stop- wig and only seven persons itopped to offer help. Miss Champion conducted the ligh school science project with he aid of two classmates who lid nearby and kept statistics. A couple saw her fall, and she heard one of them remark, 'There's a girl over there." But they didn't come to her aid. Later, when asked why they didn't offer help, the woman, who had a bag of groceries, --Air Force Photo Aerospace Speaker Paul Burke, star of the television show "Twelve O'clock High," will speak at a Pioneer International Hotel luncheon launching Aerospace in Arizona Days on March 18.

Classy Gem Bandits Make Had OAKLAND, Calif. - UPI Three well-dressed bandits, all wearing gloves and sunglasses, took an estimated half million dollars in gems from a jewelry store yesterday and escaped unnoticed into the crowd of down town shoppers. "They obviously knew what they were after and where it was kept," police said. "They're probably out of the country by now." There were no customers in the Davidson and Licht jewelry store when the men entered and ordered all the employes to file downstairs to a basement office. Lois Dezant, a watchmaker, was struck in the face with a pistol after she hit one of the bandits with a ring sizer. She was not injured seriously. The robbers took about $250 from the basement safe, ordered the firms dozen employes to lie on the floor, and forced owner Arthur Licht to go back upstairs and open a vault there. Licht said the men stuffed hundreds of gems, mostly unset diamonds, into valises they carried. He said they also took bracelets, watches, necklaces and other pieces of jewelry. Store employes told police the gunmen were "beautifully dressed," and were very polite and efficient in executing the robbery. rocery Course Slated At School Adult Evening School classes n grocery training begin next week at 700 E. 7th St. One class meets Mondays and Wednesdays and the other Tues- lays and Thursdays from 7 to :30 p.m. for a total of 35 hours if instruction.
