It's designed to transmit steadily for 75 hours on a frequency of 960.05 megacycles at 100 milliwatts of power. 2. Two Geiger-Mueller tubes, electronic devices to measure rn- diation in space and report the measurements back to radio re ceivlng stations on the earth. 3. A photoelectric sensor de signed to send a radio signn when triggered by reflected light from the moon when the probe was within 20,000 miles of it. 4. A device to slow the cone's spinning from the 400 revolutions a minute imparted to it at liftoff to a mere six RPMs. The requirement was that the cone should be rotating very slow ly near the moon so that the spinning would not interfere with the ability of the light sensor to detect the lunar glow. NASA said a secondary purpose was the testing of the phptoelec trie cell triggering device for possible use in activating television cameras or scanning instruments In future space experiments.

A letter from the Chamber o Commerce executive committee was on file favoring the ordin ance and expressing the hope i would pass. Aldermen Lund and Austin said they believed it was a good ordin ance, that it should be given trial and could be repealed, if ad visable.

He said would serve in giving good streets in which Austin has fallen behind He said the extension of assess ments for permanent streets ove 10 years, instead of three as present, would be a definite im provement.

Main Austin What Teeners Want for Christmas FLORAL DECORATIONS By EUGENE GILBERT President of the Gilbert Youth Research Co. What do young people really want for Christmas? "A new boyfriend," replied one girl In a survey we have Just completed. "A 1959 Cadillac," was the modest request from one of the lads. But the biggest group of teen- ers in the cross-the-country poll requested clothes or just plain money. Thirty-five per cent suggested clothes and 20 per cent voted for cash. Only ten per cent said they like "just • for • fun" presents — more than 76 per cent preferred gifts that are useful. "If people are g o i n g to spend money on me, they might as well said prac- 13-year-old from Long Island. But most teeners are not particularly mercenary. Less than one- third said they tried to figure out how much their presents had cost the giver. Ring* Wanted And regardless of personal preferences, 84 per cent agreed that clothes are the most useful presents — with a big if. . .if they are attractive. The biggest single complaint about girls was on clothes — loud shirts, bilious ties, ugly sweaters and zany paamas and scarfs won a 72 per cent vote on the 'Wish I'd never gotten it" list. buy something useful," tical Robin Brown, a Girls muttered about the floods of perfume and costume jewelry that appear under the Christmas tree and boys fumed about cuff links — they'd rather pick their own. After clothes and money on the most-useful list were books, Jewel- ry, school equipment, cosmetics and stationery. On the personal preference list, after clothes and cash, came tape recorders, typewriters, luggage and full tuition scholarships to college — each got about seven per cent of the vote. Several"girls requested engage ment rings — presumably with a marriageable man attached. Too Commercial? More than half said they preferred money to buy their own gifts, but a big minority — 40 per cent — said they'd rather have a present for its sentimental value even if it wasn't exactly what they wanted. The teeners did say the most relatives pick gifts suitable .for their ages. Only two per cent complained that they received gifts too old for them and just 18 per cent fussed about receiving babyish presents. Teeners apparently are no problem to themselves — only 23 per cent said they ever exchanged unsuitable gifts with their own crowd. Oddly enough — in view of their definite ideas on gifts and their prefeMnce for cold cash — most of ^fhf teeners complained that Questions Asked Do you make a practice of exchanging unsuitable presents? Do you prefer cash so that yon can buy your own presents? Or would you rather receive a pre>. sent, even if not exactly what you want or need, for its sentimental value? Do you think that relatives usually buy "too young" presents or do you think that relatives usually buy presents that are "too old?" for yon? Do yon prefer useful presents to presents that are just for fun? Do you usually try to figure out the cost of a present? Did yon once believe in Santa Claus? How old were yon when yon stopped believing in Santa Claus? Do you feel that belief in the Santa Claus story had any ill effects on you? Do you expect to tell your children that there is a Santa Claus? Do you think there is too much commercialization of Christmas? What do yon want most for Christmas? What sort of thing do yon frequently get that you dislike? What sort of presents are most useful? Parents Should Not Delay Treatment of Cross - Eyes By EDWIN P. JORDAN, M. D. I have tried to point out again and again that the prevention of disease or injury Is best. But when this is impossible, the prompt diagnosing and treatment This is not considered a dangerous procedure when done by a Christmas is too commercial. Two - thirds said that Christmas has become a game of trying to keep up with the Joneses' expensive gifts. But many felt that there wasn't much to be done about the commercialization of Christmas. • Santa Down-graded "What can one do when it has gotten so out of hand?" despaired 18-year-old Linda Blomquist of Astoria, Oregon. "In our society, Christmas is dictated by the businessmen," agreed 17-year-old Carole Weber of Los Angeles. "I will try to keep Christ in Christmas in my personal contacts," promised 18-year-old Katherine Haynes of Evansville, Ind. Two-thirds of the teeners said they used to believe in Santa Claus, but only half are definitely determined to tell their own child- ren about the jolly fat elf. Almost ent successful from the scientific oint of view,'" Pickering said. But it was very close to success Prom the engineering point of Jew it was not (successful)." The Air Force made three at- empta to send a space probe to vicinity of the moon. The rst, in August, ended in failure 'hen the rocket blew up after nly a few minutes in flight. The econd, in October, was partially iccessful in that the rocket trav- led about a third of the distance ) the moon. The third attempt a month ago fizzled when the third age of the carrier rocket mis- red. Today's firing — right on sched- le at 12:45 a.m. EST — came xactly one year after the low oint in American missile prestige — when the first Navy Vanguard atellite rocket blew up. Since hen this country has fired four arth satellites aloft. Talking with newsmen about the rmy space rocket Juno II, Glenan said the elevation has been ow and the speed 400 meters a econd slow. "We will not be able to tell just ow successful a flight it is until 37 per cent pass on the said they will not Santa Claus legend and 13 per cent haven't decided. But only seven per cent feel their belief in Santa had any ill effects — mostly disappointment when they discovered there was no such person. Most of the grdup — 71 per cent — agreed with 17-year- old Carole Weber from Los Angeles: "Santa Claus is a delightful fantasy meant for the young." Belief in jolly St. Nick doesn't last through grammar school, teen- ers reported. Half said they had been dis-enchanted by the age of eight — 35 per cent couldn't remember when they lost faith. Most of them learned there was no Santa Claus from other young sters or just figured it out for themselves.

It can also have a serious phycbologioal By BILL DILLINGHAM VIENNA — Austrian children have no Santa Claus. This does not mean, however, that they get no presents at Christmas time, or that they are less happy than children of other nations. Austrian youngsters are told that the Christ child himself brings all gifts. To prove it, Christmas cards usually bear a postmark from the Christ Child Post Office. This particular office takes a very active part in Austria's Christmas, especially important to children. It is only necessary for a person to mark a Christmas card envelope with the words "via Christkindl." The letter then goes off to the tiny hamlet of Christ Child in Upper Austria where it is stamped. Upon delivery, one's son or daughter is told that it came via heaven. The fact that Austrians know no Santa Claus^ but depend upon their gifts from Christ's child, had made this small town the most important postal spot at Christmas in all of Austria. For 11 months out of the year, however, this village post office competent specialist. has almost no work to be done.

But at Christmas it becomes one of Austria's all-important postal centers, with half the village helping to sort the mail. If anyone from a foreign corny try wishes to avail himself of this service, the procedure is quite simple: one merely puts the let ters to be postmarked in another envelope, inclosing an Internationa Postal Coupon for each letter to be forwarded, then addresses the main envelope "Postmaster Christkindl, Austria." The bundle will be opened, Austrian stamps attached and the letters postmarked from this famous spot. ROCKET (Continued from Page 1) try could be rated is Army uecess. "Obviously it was not 100 per e get dded. data a little later," he "I am very certain that a very real deal of useful information ill come out of this exercise." Dr. John 'Froehlich, aide to 'ickering, told the conference roup that radio telemetry signals rom the probe were being re- eived at the Mayaguez, Puerto lico, tracking station in excellent ashion. Mayaguez was assigned to track the probe continuously for six hours. Then a powerful radio stattoh at Goldstone, Calif., was prepared to lock on to the Pioneer lit signals and to track the probe without interruption for the next 12 hours, Combination Rocket Pioneer III was launched aboard a Juno It combination rocket 76 feet tall. The Jupiter missile, topped by 18 scaled down Sergeant rockets and the Small payload — was launched in dazzling fashion. The Jupiter provided the brute strength to lift Pioneer up through the clutching grasp of the earth's gravity and the earth's thick atmosphere. The power of the missile at lift-. off was so tremendous that the earth shuddered. A mile and a half away, observers who .failed to shield their eyes found themselves blinded momentarily. Flame Belches Flame belched from the base of the rocket so violently and in such volume that some watchers thought the rocket was being blasted to bits. "She's blowing up —she's gone," one man yelled. But then the missile rose ponderously, throwing off sheets of the frost that had blanketed its liquid-oxygen chilled walls. The rocket climbed majestically, accelerating swiftly through layers of haze into a moonless but starry sky. It was visible for more than three minutes as it streaked northeastward.

I should say first that nearly every mother with her first-born child fears that the infant's eyes are crossed. During the first few weeks the eyes wander away from each other and do not seem to be looking in the same direction. Gen erally this usually takes care of itself after a few months. True cross-eyedness Is when one eye turns inward. But in some cases the eye may turn outward (walleye) or sometimes upward. Gobbler Hatches Out Guinea Hens CONWAY, S.

A child past the first few months of life who shows a tendency to ^lose one eye, to tilt the head or to rub one of the eyes, should be ex- mined for crossed eyes since a child does not outgrow this condition by himself.
