Harry Galfand, ivho took over the job Jan. 1 when Rosen moved on to head !he city's Trade and Convention Bureau. Galfand says he things of Philadelphia as "a good family city. "I'm not so sure it's bad to lave that kind of reputation being known for a great art museum and education center —rather than being thought of as a city of swingers," he says. . g HOW DO YOU PRACTICE for moon landingst One answer may be this Lunar Landing Training Vehicle, built as a wingless, free-flying simulator of the module that may ferry spacemen from an orbiting space; capsule to the lunar surface.
