Reception at a ground station in Andover, Maine, where the program originated, and at the Goonhilly Downs station in England was steady and clear, but the reception at Pleumeurbodou, France, was not as steady. Newsmen watching the transmission at a closed-circuit viewing in New York were told by a Bell Telephone Laboratories executive that the satellite, "from every indication we have, is working perfectly." Telstar II was turned on for 18 minutes starting at 8:05 p.m., EST, as it moved southeast of Andover on a northeasterly course.

Wayne O'Harra, materials engineer for the Arizona Highway Department, told the House public works subcommittee, "To say I am perturbed is an understatement." O'Harra, of 7306 N. Central, Phoenix, was a featured witness as hearings resumed on the 32.2- mile stretch of Interstate 8 (U.S. 80) running between Sentinel and Mohawk. Also heard were: —Charles McDonald, 3130 W.

Green, Gila Bend, employed by the Arizona Highway Department from February 1961 to July 1962, now working for Pan American World Airways. The subcommittee under Rep. John Blatnik, D-Minn., learned: 1. Interstate 8, notwithstanding what Rep. Jim Wright, D-Tex., termed "most slipshod and haphazard" supervision, is in good shape now. 2. The State of Arizona paid $26,278 extra to correct faulty materials on one stretch of the job because its employes failed to notify the Ashton Co., Inc., its gravel contained too much clay. O'Harra said a state court decision made the state liable if it failed to warn contractors. 3. When laboratory tests revealed the faulty materials, O'Harra hurried to Sentinel and ordered corrections to prevent a bumpy road. 4.

Vote Goes Against By5to3 By HOWARD CARROLL MARICOPA County voters last night defeated by a 5 to 3 margin a $9,750,000 bond issue to expand junior college facilities in the county. More than 17,000 persons voted in the countrywide election. An estimated 140,000 to 160,000 persons were eligible to vote. The bond was beaten 10,496 to 6,532. There was 227 void ballots. Junior college officials blamed the decisive defeat on a general taxpayers' revolt. The vote against the bond issue was so widespread that it suffered badly In areas where it was expected to roll up heavy favorable margins. IN MESA, for example, where a favorable vote was anticipated, the proposal lost by a 3 to 1 mar. The vote was 2,471 to 829. Funior College officials had hoped for a 3-to-l vote in their favor because Mesa was one of the areas selected for one of three new unior colleges. In the Phoenix Union High Schools - College District, where more than 7,400 votes were cast, the proposal lost by better than 3 to 2. The vote was 4,535 to 2,864. The proposal carried only two of the line polling places, West and Central high schools. Scottsdale, where voters rejected a $3.2 million school bond Issue In February, defeated the junior college proposal by better than 2 to 1. The vote was 1,559 to 691. Strongest support for the junior college expansion plan came from some of the more sparsely populated areas of the county. Agua Fria supported it, 74 to 12. Gilbert gave the proposal a i-to-1 margin with 67 voters sup- jorting it and 23 rejecting it. The bond proposal suffered another jolt when it was defeated in hree of four polling places in the ~lendale area. Support there for t was supposed to be strong. Persons voting in the Cortez, iunnyslope and Washington high chool polling places defeated the proposal by decisive margins. Persons voting at Glendale High supported the proposal. All of the county's 29 public high schools were used as polling places. Money from the bond issue would have been used to purchase J hoenix College, build two new unior colleges and purchase three college sites. It also would have irovided for improvements and idditions to phoenix College. A hird college was planned with capital outlay funds from the tate. Tentative sites for the new col* eges were listed in the Mesa, Northeast Phoenix-Scottsdale and Northwest Phoenix - Scottsdale ireas. Junior college officials ex- wessed disappointment over the iefeat. The county junior college »ard had been meeting weekly or the past five months in Dreparation for the bond issue. "I am disappointed because we worked so hard and we felt we tad a mandate from the people o go ahead with the junior col- ege construction program," said )r. Robert F. Easley of Glendale, a member of the county junior college board. Easley, in referring to a man- ate, alluded to the proposal to reate a junior college tax district 9 the general election last (Coatinwed wa Psge 3, qpj. i>
