Space Fair 'launch' delayed by power lack A lack of power in the main booster system was blamed yesterday for a delay of several hours in the launching of the San Bernardino Space Fair from its pad atop a parking lot on Fifth street between E and F streets. Officials of llio fair, brought to tliis area by the San Bernardino Chamber of Commerce retail associates, sheepishly admitted the show failed to get off the ground at high noon as scheduled. Seems the Power facilities on the parking lot were inadequate. The final countdown was pushed back several hours until electricians installed a supplementary booster system. The fair , which features exhibits of space ships, rocket engines, missiles and space hardware and even a "space puppet" show, blasted successfully into orbit late in the afternoon before throngs of visiting youngsters and adults. They came to view such exhibits as a full-size model of the Titan II engine which boosted the Molly Brown into orbit and Oops, sports reversed in eapfions Redlands Higli School students must have come to the conclusion yesterday that the Facts can't tell the difference between the various sports seasons, despite its support of Terrier atliletics. Captions of two pictures por traying tlie new male cheerleaders for next year indentified the basketball cheerleadrs as the football spirit raisers and vice versa. The football cheerleaders will be Rex McBride, Fred Nichols and Bill Slinkaixl. Leading basketball yells will be Richard Collier, Mike Mcintosh and Cliris Capen. Actually, the error in print was made by a former high school basketball player whose elation over his most brilliant fast break was suddenly shattered by the realization that he had made the goal in the opposing team's basket. Ever since that traumatic experience he has had a recurring subconscious mental block on the subject of sports. State massage parlor bill put on shelf Slate legislation the City of Redlands was counting on to place controls on local massage parlors has been shelved by an Assembly committee. The bill, introduced by Assemblyman John P. Quimby of Rialto, would have established a State Board of Massage Therapy to license and regulate practitioners. Redlands city councilmen recently postponed adoption of city massage parlor ordinance, pointing out that the proposed state law would preclude the local ordniance. The city massage parlor law would have established a registration procedure and would have prohibited a masseur or masseuse from working on person of the opposite sex. Tuesday the Assembly's Government Efficiency and Economy Committee referred Quimby's bill to a between-session interim study. Quimby said the main purpose of the measure was to prevent prostitutes from using massage parlors as a front for their operations. He reportedly introduced the bill as a result of a series of convictions in the San Bernardino Valley involving prostitution rings using massage parlors for a front. For your Enterfainmenf ADULT a tracking station which visitors can operate while a "space ship" orbits overhead. Free tickets to the space fair, which will be open from noon to 10 p.m. today and tomorrow and from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. Saturday, have been distributed to some 112,000 youngsters in San Bernardino County schools. On display are items developed in aerospace reseach by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration which can which can be converted to industry and consumer use. Participating exhibitors include a number of space industry firms such as Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Space Technology Laboratories and North American Aviation. One of the featured exhibits is a full-size mockup of the Apollo spacecraft, which its designers hope will take three .American astronauts to the moon and back. Unlike its realistic counterpart however, the mockup's porthole fails to reveal a birdseye view of any moon craters. Instead, it frames the top of a nearby church at Fifth and F streets. As for the astronauts, you can get a good idea of what one looks like by strolling some three blocks to a nearby five and dime store on E street where a life-size, space-suited manne- kin adorns one of the store's windows. Colton voters decline to sell electric system Colton voters spurned a pro posal to sell the city's electric system to Southern California Edison Co. in a special election held this week. The proposal failed lo carry a necessary two-thirds majority by 193 votes. Returns showed 1,830 voters favoring the sale and 1,204 opposed. A similar proposal by the city of Riverside to sell its municipal light and power system to Calectric, which later merged with the Edison Co., was rejected by Riverside voters several years ago. The Colton City Council called the special election after the Edison Co, informed that Colton was considering possible sale of its municipal electric system, offered to submit a bid of $4.2 million for the city's system. Mayor J. Jlac Coltrin, who favored the proposal, said prior to the election that the system would have to be enlarged and expanded into areas •within the city now served by Edison if Colton is lo provide adequate electric service at competitive rates. "A minimum expenditure of $1,130,000 in capital funds would be needed during the next five years for this expansion which would necessitate a tax increase of 15 cents," he said. New freeway ordered to bypass Needles A federal highway official has announced that Interstate Highway 40 (U. S. 66) is now expected to be located far to the north of Needles, although much construction has been completed on the Needles route. A letter written by federal highway administrator Rex M. Whitton to J. C. Womack, state highway engineer for California, told of plans to take the new highway through Searchlight, Nev. California and Arizona Highway officials said over S25 million has been spent or committed on the Needles route that had been approved earlier. Work is about half completed on a giant overpass across the Santa Fe tracks in the center of Needles which had been planned as part of Interstate 40. Arthur Black, Arizona state highway commissioner, reportedly said the cost of maintaining the freeway through Needles, where a highway route is required by California law, would fall on the two states if the route revision is finally adopted. Whitton's letter said the new route would cost less with no loss in directness of travel. Every Friday & Safurday Nighfs — 9 p.m. fo 7 ;30 o.m. DANNY BOWEN and His RYTHMEERS Empire Bowl Lounge 840 W.
