(Alt.) Charier Nem - - Pi «* 8 * T * B Life 24 Ends For in Arkansas By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Three persons drowned in Ar- Kansas Monday, one in a boating accident, as the tempo changed from highway deaths to water deaths on the final day of the 78-hour July Fourth holiday period. Arkansas apparently survived the final 'day of the long weekend without an additional traffic fatality, but a record 21 persons died in the first 46 hours. FAIR DEVICE'S NEW JOB 15 HELPING THE RETARDED UNION GROVE, (AP) A device that amused more than a million children at the New York World's Fair has a new career ahead — helping mentally retarded youngsters. ' the Wisconsin State Welfare Board has accepted a donation of the "fun machine" that was featured in the Johnson Wax pavilion at the fair, for use in the Southern Colony and Training School here. It is a walk-through, mazelike toy in which children manipulate cranks and buttons to activate noisemakers, surprise mechanisms and a variety of gears. It also includes distortion mirrors, a colored prism tunnel and a plastic hose "jungle." A school spokesman said the machine i is expected to "excite interest and bring out latent ability in patients who tend to be apathetic and phlegmatic." The highway deaths fell six short of the all-time holiday record set during the'1957 Thanksgiving period. • The drowning victims Monday were Buddy Stevens, 40, of near Holly Grove, David Combs, 17, of Helena and John Brittain, 16,-of LiitleRock. ; Sevens drowned while wading at Clarendon Beach about two miles south of Clarendon.

(AP) —America'! heaviest MtelUt*— • 21-ton rocket stage like that which one day will proptl At- tronauts to the moon — vaulted into orbit today. It wsi filled with 10 tons of liquid hydrogen in an engineering test to determine if this high-energy fuel has at last been harnessed for space use. The 17-story-tall Saturn 1 rocket, most powerful ever fired by the United States, thundered off its launching pad at 10:53 a.m. (EOT) on the l.t- million pounds of t hrust and trailed a plume of fire more than 500 feet long as it darted into the sky. * * * Eight minutes later, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration announced that the 92-foot second stage had ignited with a 200,000-pound thrust burst and drilled itself into an orbit about 118 miles above the earth. The launching was held up nearly two hours because of the failure of one of two tele- WARNING ORDER In the Chancery Court, Chickasawba District, Mississippi County, Arkansas.

Flight controllers finally decided to launch with only one of the camera* operating. 1 * ••. • ' A tracking station at Bermuda reported receiving dear pic- hires from the camera as the huge stage passed overhead several minutes after liftoff. The controller at Bermuda reported the photos showed that the hydrogen was "very stable" and was "behaving itself very well" with only an occasional ripple on the surface. The report said gases evaporating from the hydrogen were Ming expelled properly to provide a small amount of thrust to help settle the volatile fuel. Officials said several hours would be required to determine how successful the mission was: They termed the early portion highly successful. Success would clear the way foi the launching of an unmanned Apollo moon ship in August and the flight of a three-man Apollo crew on an earth orbit mission in November. Both would be boosted by Saturn 1 rockets. HOME ON THE RANGE KANSAS CITY (AP) — The deer and the antelope may no longer play hereabouts, but the deer still cavort. Two wild deer recently disrupted neighborhoods in Kansas City. One of them bounded around 35 minutes before it was subdued by a tranquilizer dart and transported out of town. Another has proved more elusive. It is believed still making its home in a brushy, wooded suburban sanctuary. "I wouldn't be surprised that ,it stays there indefinitely," said conservation agent Jesse Flassing. ••••••••*•*••••••••••• Sertloe» By FUNERAL HOME Integrity RICHARD R.
