ONCE OVER LIGHTLY Moss May Try Return By WAYNE CORNELL Five years ago Stirling Moss, possibly the greatest racing driver (o ever take the track, went off tne Sihrerstone, England course in a Lotus racing machine and crashed. It took Moss better than a year to recover and when he tried racing again he found that he had to "think" his moves rather than performing them automatically. For this reason he retired from motor racing. Just the other day, during an interview in London, Moss said he ielt the urge to race again. He admitted that he has been practicing but doesn't want to make another try unless he has the potential lo be a winner. "I know that the barrier built by five years of development of drivers, cars, tires and experience could be almost insuperable," Moss commented. Despite his statement the former racing great recently lapped Silverstone setting a unofficial record by better than two seconds. Moss Is close to 40 years old but it must be remembered that five-time world driving champion Juan Manuel Fangio did not win his first title until he was 40-years old. side. Other tips for safe diving: --Constantly check and clean your diving gear with fresh water. --If buying used equipment, have it checked thoroughly by a competent dealer before using. --Be familial' with emergency and escape procedures before a dive in open water. Develop respect for the water. --A swimmer should be able to swim a mile without becoming completely exhausted before he wears SCUBA gear. --Never dive if you feel ill, --Become familiar with the standard decompression table. --Never dive without a depth gauge and watch. --Don'l dive in water colder than 60 degrees without an exposure suit. --Never hold your breath while wearing SCUBA gear. It can cause embolism (bursting lung). --Never dive without a knife. --Be sure lo placearedwarn- ing flag on the surface to let boaters know a diver is underwater. Diving is a relatively inexpensive sport; beginner's gear costs about $200. And, If you keep safety in mind at all times and use a little common sense, it isanunforgettable experience.

Bandini's Ferrari went out of control, overturned and burst info flame burning its occupant severely. Television camera crews on the scene filmed the entire race including the crash. When the program on the Monaco Grand Prix was aired It began with an interview with Bandini before the race very much alive. Then throughout the race the producers built up the excitement toward the crash that everyone knew was about to take place. Then the T.V. screen was filled with scenes of the burned and mangled body of Bandini being taken from the wreckage.
