Space 'in' This Yule- Boys Toys Predictably Take Moon Walk NEW YORK. N.Y. (AP) Toy makers have adroitly recorded the year man walked on' the moon with predictable replicas of numerous devices used by the historic Appollo missions. Although Tranquility Base will be deserted this Christmas, earth children will be reconstructing the Eagle and its moon \ gray parking place. j Fathers and sons will be '. launching ready-to-fly rockets,' searching for satellites with i telescopes, identifying rocks 1 with toy computers and antici-1 pating NASA's next program by assembling model space stations authentically copying tomorrow's Pilgrim Observer. Model rockets are launched electrically and soar to altitudes ranging from 100 to over 2.000 feet. A 1/100 scale replica of the rocket that sent Sputnik I into orbit and also the Vostok version with cosmonaut Yuri Gargarin. on the first globe-orbiting mission. April 12. 1961. is; introduced this year by Model Products Corporation. Then, of course, there are endless entries of futuristic rockets, gliders, space stations and lunar launching pads which no longer seem fantastic be- i cause many toy makers' far out toys of yesterday are every day hardware now at Cape Kennedy or Vanclenberg. Among today's fantasy category entries, for example, is; Orbiting Spaceway, a neat little representation of the entire universe. Deflectors determine orbiting of a fleet of space ships, j Astronaut costumes have added i realistic features such as an ionization nebulizer. Preschoolers can plan their own moon walks with corrugated moonscape. There's a new aero designed space ship with a 26 inch parachute. engineers would rather imagine their Wabash Cannonballs being powered by steam than invisible transistors. Just as sports car racing has ! caught the fancy of the mod generation, their sons and kid brothers race miniature Porsche Carreras, Lola Chevys and Ford GTs on tracks the length of; the living room floor, o r smaller. Strombecker of Canada has banked curves which are copies of the race layouts at Daytona. Monza, Monaco or any of the Can-Am pro circuits in North America. Also available is the first drag race scale model to run self propelled with track or batteries.

The latest entry in model rac- | ing cars is the Baja Bug, named | for the Lower California penin- jsula, south of the border.

(AP) — Christmas may be the season to be jolly but it is also the season to guard against becoming a litterbug. According to Allen H. Seed, Jr., executive vice president of Keep America Beautiful, Inc., the estimated 1970 accumulation of discarded Christmas wrappings and decorations will total more than 400 million pounds. Against this dismal outlook Seed urges the following three simple rules for a litterless holiday season: 1. Make good use of litter baskets at shopping centers and downtown shopping areas while in pursuit of Christmas gifts. 2. Make sure that all discarded gift wrappings are properly stowed in trash cans. 3. And finally, la/ the dismantled Christmas tree carefully to rest — burn it, give it to the rubbish collector or set it up as a feeding station for birds — but don't let it wander like a Christmas ghost through the neighborhood. The rock identification computer introduced by Skilcraft is for beginners and serious rock- hounds. Then there are microscopes, biology and geology labs, star finders and tool sets for juniors and seniors alike. A moon gray display base, complete with craters, depressed footprints, scientific instruments, TC camera, and American flag comes In the case with Monogram's Lunar Landing set. The scale is 11-48 and the great excitement, of course, is constructing Eagle. As well as that "giant step for mankind." Neil Armstrong and Buz Aldrin caused Santa to take quite a step, too. 149 Served at Vets' Dinner (Times Herald News Service) MANNING — About 140 veterans were served at the annual Veterans' Day dinner of Emil Ewoldt Post'No. 22, on Wednesday evening, Nov. 11, at the American Legion Hall.

French and Swiss children, for example, look forward to the pastry they receive on that day. in which a bean, coin or china figure is hidden. Whoever gets the prize, is crowned king of the family. Epiphany means "appearance" and commemorates the visit of the Thre Wise Men to the Infant Jesus. Their arrival was proof to believers that Christ the Saviour was born. During the Middle Ages, Epiphany or Twelfth Night, was commemorated with plays presented in churches. Solemn observances largely disappeared in Elizabethan England, and this became a time for revelry. Shakespeare's "Twelfth Night" reflects this mood. Historians say it was probably presented in a command performance at Whitehall Palace on January 6, 1601. NATURE CARDS This year of ecology has influenced the season's Christmas card designs, say artists in the Norcross design studio. More and more persons will be sending holiday greetings with cards illustrating the natural beauty of our landscape. The outdoor scene is varied, including snowy fields, New England covered bridges, horse drawn sleighs, deer and waterfowl, to name only a few.

Eye-Pleasing Ornaments Easy to Make In the days of our country's innocence, that time almost beyond anyone's recall, store- bought Christmas decorations for the home and the tree were unknown. Cranberries, hundreds of them, were strung together, popcorn was molded into sticky red and green balls, colored paper was cut into assorted shapes held together by a kitchen paste of flour and water, soap was carved and wood was whittled and the over-all effect brought joy to the hearts of its creators. There still are families toda who take pleasure in creatin holiday decorations and the make them to be compatibl with modern day decor. Som of these are lavish, complicate and costly. But many attractiv or smile-provoking decoration can be made either by children' hands or those of grown-up and the cost is nominal. In fact, many of them use the kind of throw-away items tha are in such abundance during the holiday season. Angels and cherubs, Santai and elves emerge out of gif. wrap, and ribbon and yarn become fanciful wreaths for fire place and doorway. Spools and paper tubes achieve glamour as candlesticks, covered in silver or gold foil. And '.he Christmas tree can be adorned with an endless variety of eye pleasing ornaments easily made from ribbon spools and gift scraps and trimmed with sparkling Festive-Tie, lame ribbon and Lustre Cord. To aid those inclined toward making at home instead of buying in stores, Norcross has prepared a Christmas booklet with "Over 25 decorations and gift ideas for Christmas and all year." It can be obtained by sending 50 cents to Gift Wraps, 14 Main Street, Park Ridge, 111. 60068. The Roman emperor, Cali- gula, honored his horse, Incita- tus, by declaring it to be a consul.

Merry Bells Are Ringing for Holiday Ringing across the ages and around the world, bells are part of the traditions of Christmas. Zurich, Switzerland, has long been noted for its beautiful bells, say the editors of the New Book of Knowledge. Every Christmas Eve, th§ Zurich bells ring out loud and clear, calling families to church. This same tradition Is repeated in thousands of other cities, where chimes arid bells ring out at midnight from the steeples and spires of churches. Bells contribute to the sights as well as the sounds of the holl- lay season. They are a popular ecoration and are used as or- aments on trees. Tradition has it that bells in- pired Clement C. Moore to write his famous poem, "A Visit rom St. Nicholas." The inspira- ion came from listening to the merry jingle of bells on his orses' harness, as he drove long on a frosty winter night.
