PHURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 27, 1962 THE NEWS-PALLADIUM, BENTON HARBOR, MICH. PAGE THIRTEEN TELSTAR PREDICTION: Birmingham, Mich., artist Art Radebaugh launched this version of a Tel- star satellite from his drawing board in 1949 and ' the caption under the drawing when published said: "Peering into the future, Artist Radebaugh sees television solving a problem through this disc whirling its control surfaces 16 miles above the earth. Here such transmitting stations would have a maximum range. There's no fuel problem- atomic power does it." (AP Photo) [FUTURE IN SPACE His Paintings Are Really Way Out By A. F. MAHAN DETROIT (AP) -- A mythical Telstar was put into (space in 1949--that's right, 1949. Its launching pad was I in the Detroit suburb of Beverly Hills. Even a year before that, its I creator had designed a "Moon I Rocket" which looks- surprisingly I like many of the contraptions be- I Ing fired off Cape Canaveral--al| most 15 years later. That 1949 Telstar orbited only I on drawing paper.

But in retirement he retains marks of Radebaugh the artist-a Van Dyke beard and a monicle. And he has an on-wheels studio built into an English Ford that | Radebaugh re-designed to look like something from out of this world. Among other things that have come from Radebaugh's brushes [ before they began to be talked about generally were: A helicopter bus, overhead railway lines, skyscrapers on stilts. ART RADEBAUGH couldn't build ft bird house. But I seem to have a flare for knowing how things work or are going to work. Maybe I picked that up over the years as engineers picked flaws in my automobile conceptions or at the Pentagon, where I worked for the chief or ordnance during the war, helping dream up weapons of the future."
