(AP) Toy makers have adroitly recorded the year man walked orr the moon with predictable replicas of numerous devices used by the historic Appollo missions Times Herald, Carroll, Wednesday, Nov. 18, 1970 engineers would rather imagine i their Wabash Cannonballs being powered by steam than invisible transistors. racing set with rocky straights Just as sports car racing has and narrow trail sections on caught the fancy of the mod i a sand colored track, their sons and kid —i powers a new ,0, i Products racer issions. ; generation, their sons and kid Although Tranquility Base will i brot h ers race miniature Porsche " this Christmas, 1 be deserted earth children will be reconstructing the Eagle and its moon gray parking place. Fathers and sons will be launching ready-to-fly rockets, searching for satellites with telescopes, identifying rocks with toy computers and anticipating 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 because many toy makers' far out toys of yesterday are every day hardware now at Cape Kennedy or Vandenberg. 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. Astronaut costumes have added , realistic features such as an j Way season Carreras, Lola Chevys and Ford GTs on tracks the length of the living room floor, or 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.

Most versatile toy for kids who love construction site play is Big Cat Loader, by Kenner Products Co., a new kind of ride-on truck with two motors, one for lifting, one for driving. It operates as a combination crane, fork lift, skip loader and wrecker. Attachments include a fork and shovel and a hook for hoisting and towing. This truck operates on an alkaline a flying finish gate where a 1 dry cell rechargeable battery drag-snag chute ends the race, j that can't leak. There's a new Dune Buggy | This battery innovation also sleek Kenner with aerodynamic spoiler and racing stripe. The GT Racer easily carries a child up to 125 pounds. The 3-on-the-floor T stick and an electric horn will be sure to enthrall even the most sophisticated junior racing buff. This unique racer can't go above safe walking speed because the motor provides braking action. The latest entry in model racing cars is the Baja Bug, named for the Lower California peninsula, south of the border. It handles rough terrain just as the real Baja racers and it does things many models never have done before, such as climbing over objects, shifting gears, throttling down to a slow idle and starting easily with a recoil starter. Gas engine powered models of cars, boats and airplanes of L. M. Cox Manufacturing Com­ pany bring excitement to the young and nostalgia to their fathers and grandfathers who have first hand knowledge of Thomoson Troohv Racers. PT-19 Trainers, Mustangs, Warhawks, Sea Bees and Indy Racers. 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. Don't Litter Yule Glitter NEW YORK CITY, N.Y. (AP) — Christmas may be the season to be jolly but it is also the season to guard against becoming a Jitterbug. 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 hol- 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. There are growing lists of nostalgia provoking presents for the train buffs. Monorail models are available for the non purists 1. Make good use of lifter 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.

Eye-Pleasing j 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 today who take pleasure in creating holiday decorations and they make them to be compatible with modern day decor. Some of these are lavish, complicated and costly. But many attractive .or smile-provoking decorations can be made either by children's hands or those of grown-ups and the cost is nominal. In fact, many of them use the kind of throw-away items that are in such abundance during the holiday season. Angels and cherubs, Santas and elves emerge out of gift wrap, and ribbon and yarn become fanciM wreaths for fireplace 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, lncita- 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, the 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 holiday season. They are a popular decoration and are used as ornaments on trees. Tradition has it that bells inspired Clement C. Moore to write his famous poem, "A Visit from St. Nicholas." The inspiration came from listening to the merry jingle of bells on his horses' harness, as he drove along on a frosty winter night.
