Three Payloads Fired On Wrong Trajectory Orbiting Titan Fails In Toughest Test V ' WAVE Unit May Move To McCoy By ROULHAC HAMILTON twitlMl Waihlrnton Bureau WASHINGTON The prospect that Sanford Naval Air Station might be converted as a training center for enlisted WAVES diminished Tuesday but at the same time the possibility developed that McCoy Air Force Base at Orlando might get this new mission. Enlisted Navy women now are trained at Bainbridge, Md., a World War II recruit training establishment now in such dilapidated condition that rehabilitating it would be extremely costly. The Navy has been looking for a new WAVE training site. EARLIER THIS month, there were indications that Sanford NAS, slated for inactivation when its heavy reconnaissance support mission is transferred to Turner Air Force Base in Georgia, was being considered as a new location. But Sanford NAS also would need some upgrading of its personnel facilities, although much less than Bainbridge needs, to fit it as a WAVE recruit training center. And the possibility of upgrading personnel facilities went out the window Tuesday when Defense Secretary Robert S. McNamara knocked out of the military construction program Sanford projects costing more than $8 million. The bulk of this sum would have gone into projects which would have no bearing on WAVE traininga $4 million-plus runway project, for instance. But more than $2 million of the amount would have been used for construe tion of an enlisted men's (or women's) barracks and mess hall a bachelor officers quarters, and a new electrical distribution system, all of which would have been useful as part of a WAVE training center.

Wallace McGregor said the horse racing will be the informal type between area horsemen and that the car races will be for stock cars and so on. The latter races are to be held on Sunday afternoons this winter and possibly on Friday or Saturday nights next summer, McGregor added. The track is at the west end of the ranch, near Spring Garden Road. iiiiiiiiitiiiiiitttiiuiiiiiiniuiifiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii!iitttiT!tiiiiiitiiiiiiiiitiiiiiiiiniifiitiiiiiiitiiiitiiiiiiiiiiiitituiiiittiiiiiutiiiiiittit!iitiiiiiiiiiiit 1 In Editorial I Many May Go Hungry Christmas SEVERAL HUNDRED Orange County families face a bleak and hungry Christmas unless the rest of us come to their aid. The Salvation Army has planned, as in years past, to send food checks to these needy and deserving families, but the money for this purpose has not been forthcoming. AS OF RIGHT now, the Salvation Army is exactly $8,237 behind what it had last year for Christmas baskets of food. Unless this money comes in immediately, today and tomorrow, there will be no Christmas of any kind for several thousand little children and their parents. Some of the regular Salvation Army Christmas contributors have fallen behind, perhaps in the belief that the new "Operation Newsboy" program would do the entire job. This new program did provide $3,500, but that is only a fraction of what is needed for the Salvation Army's Christmas project for the unfortunate.

This is not official, but it was the firm conviction Tuesday of State Comptroller Fred 0. (Bud) Dickinson Jr., who has just returned from Anaheim, Calif., with a team of other state officials, from a conference with high officials of Disney Enterprises and Disney himself. DICKINSON made this prediction at a press conference here Tuesday to report on his conferences with Disney officials on his four-day visit to the California city. Dickinson said Disney was most anxious to get started on his Florida project in Orange and THEN, TOO, the number of needy has risen. There was an overall 23 per cent increase in case referrals to the Salvation Army this year. The areas of Apopka and Winter Garden have doubled their requests and in Winter Park the increase was 30 per cent. These are all genuinely needy cases. Each is checked out thoroughly by welfare workers and each is certified to the Salvation Army. No one is on the list who is not at the point of destitution and desperation. To deny these neighbors of ours a decent Christmas dinner would shame the rest of us in Orange County. Wre have always been generous people, people with big hearts and concern for our fel-lowman. , MAY WE SUGGEST that you slip a few bills or a check in an envelope and mail it today to Salvation Army, Box 9G9, Orlando.

The comptroller said that Disney officials are coming to Florida in mid-January for another series of conferences on taxes and other issues. These conferences will be held here in Tallahassee. DICKINSON emphasized that the Disney interests are asking no tax concessions from Florida. "We are not asking any special concessions," he quoted Roy Disney, business manager, as saying. ' 'There will be no special c o n c e ssions," the comptroller said. "We stand to gain far more by working with them, not by giving concessions." DICKINSON said the state would treat the Disney interests as it would any other industry coming into Florida. "I do not think there are many serious problems in the field of taxation that cannot be worked out administratively," he added. "We are going to do more research here so we will be able to come up with a few more answers in our January meeting."

The power-packed Titan was supposed to send its four payloads into a circular, almost-stationary orbit 20,930 miles above the equator, but instead left three of them in a long cigar-shaped orbit. The fate of the fourth was unknown. The Air Force said tracking data indicated that the Titan's vital third stage failed to fire a third time to perform the critical final maneuver about six hours after launch. THE third stage also failed on the Titan 3C's second test last October. It reached orbit satisfactorily, but flipped out of control and shattered when a second orbital firing was attempted. The failure was blamed on a valve problem which was corrected for Tuesday's shot. The three satellites kicked free of the third stage were two test communications spacecraft and a home-built amateur radio satellite. The Air Force said they were circling earth in an orbit ranging from 29,900 miles above earth to only 121 miles high. THE failure was a blow to Air Force plans to use the powerful rocket to orbit eight military communications satellites at a time this spring. Tuesday's mission was following the same flight plan to be used for the eight-in-one shots. The flight was the toughest yet for the triple-barreled rocket, which is scheduled to start lofting Manned Orbiting Laboratories in 1968. There are eight or nine more test flights planned before the first manned mission.

If the plans are approved by the State Education Department, the eight-room, $178,000 schools will be built at Edgewater and on locations west of Holly Hill and southwest of DeLand. iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiHiiiiiiiiiHiiiiiiiiniiiiiHiiiiiiimiiiiiiiiiiiiiniiit SHOPPING DAYS v TILL CHRISTMAS iiiHiniiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiniiiniiiniiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii Cracker Jim Sez: Hit shore looks to me like today is gonna be another one of them cool uns.

There is no calm, no peace. But ravaged plains, And burning towns and ruined swains, 1 And broken limbs and dying groans, And widow's tears and orphan's 1 moans. But is it so different than it has 1 always been? Even that year, when a Prince of Peace was born into a kingdom of combat, there was torment and suffering I over the land. One man would enslave another. There was greed and sadism. Few nations understood the other. IT HAS ALWAYS been thus. At Jerusalem, at Gettysburg, at Flanders, at Bataan. At the la Drang Valley in Viet Nam. And almost apologetically men celebrate each time the birth of one who above all others loathed man's destruction of himself. Do not men die fast enough, he must have wondered, Without destroying each other? Is any man insensible to the brevity of life? And can he, who knows, think it too long? His answer, of course, will be reflected by a star in the East ! here this Christmas, but it will ! be fogged by the smoke of I battle. And that is the irony; i that each man here will have no I other light to guide him but dim 1 1 lessons mislearned in history. He will pray, the soldier, for peace. uitniiiiiitiiititiit iiiitittt itiittiiiiiiiittfiiiiitttiiiiitiiitifiiitiiiiitiiiittiiiiitiutiitiittittf ttiiiiiittiit!riitiiititittsiiiiuiiiitiMiti(iiitfttiitiiitiiA Johnson, Ixhard Agree German NATO Role Backed, Cfjiasa Eribunt Dispatch to Tht Sentinel WASHINGTON Talks between President Johnson and Chancellor Ludwig Erhard ended Tuesday with United States support for increased participation by West Germany in a North Atlantic Treaty Organization nuclear force. The two-day Johnson-Erhard discussions centered on West Germany's proposal for giving it a direct role in NATO nuclear policy and defenses, such as joining other nations in ownership and operation of a Polaris missile submarine fleet. "THE PRESIDENT and the Chancellor gave close attention to the nuclear problems confronting the (NATO) alliance," a joint statement summarizing the talks said. "They agreed that the Federal Republic of Germany and other interested partners in the alliance should have an appropriate part in nuclear defense." !?;'?! I Christmas But he will approach the altar with his weapon. He, that figure of any man in khaki, wrapped in heavy gear, no brightness anywhere about it except the light of its eyes. Its face lined. Its shoulders weight- ed. Its step slow and disci- plined. Its heart heavy. Its body weary. YES, ALWAYS thus. At Val- ley Forge, at Normandy, at Pork Chop Hill. And at Plei Me, 1 Viet Nam. Devout man shrinks from accepting the responsibility of war. But he accepts the respon- sibility of improving it. , I Battles, in this age are trans- acted by machines ever more I perfect. We move faster, hit 1 harder. We advance destruction artificially. But we die as before I and grieve as men have always grieved. 1 Lay him low, lay him low, In the clover or the snow, What care he, he cannot know, i And those who live, perhaps, I suffer the supreme agony. They I here this Christmas are apart from their people. And, al- though one can protect himself from flak in a foxhole, loneli- ness penetrates all armor. Sep- aration wounds all. I CHRISTMAS, 1965, 12,000 miles from home, will be I neither silent nor holy, man is a 1 slave to his rifle. But still he believes, he hopes. He bows his head this 1 Christmas and asks that his cause be just. f For whether on the scaffold high, Or in the battle's van, The fittest place where man can die, Is where he dies for man. I Spokesmen for Johnson and Erhard, commenting on the statement after the two leaders finished their final meeting in the White House, declined to explain what was meant by "an appropriate part." Bill D. Moyers, White House press secretary, and Karl-Guenther Von Hase, West German press spokesman, said the questions of how large and active a role West Germany might have in a NATO nuclear defense arrangement and what type of force was under consideration could not be answered pending discussions among the NATO member nations.
