Bids for the flight are trickling in from Maine to California despite official turndowns and forecasts that any space travel is still years away. A Vanguard information officer reported today he's received some 30 offers from Americans to go i space flying since the Soviets launched dog-carrying Sputnik II early this month. . Project n Vanguard is the U. S. government's scientific program for shooting up some baby earth moons. The volunteers are young and old and in varied walks of life. But others seem 100 per cent sincere. And a number obviously figure the first trip could well be just one way. A Massachusetts man placed a million-dollar price tag on his offer to go orbiting. He said he wanted the money to put his sons through college and provide for his wife. No Other Future A 23-year-old Maine convict wrote that although he's due to get out of prison soon, the chances are he can't get ahead in society with a .police record. "So therefore I want to volunteer myself for anything that will benefit the people in the future," he said. An ex-con in Texas said he-had | no family, so: "I have nothing to 1 lose but my life and what greater j way can a man. die, but to give his life for his country?" A letter to "Dear Mr. President" in girlish hand from Akron, Ohio, said: "There are two of us. One weighs 83 Ib. and the other -weighs 73. We will galdy (sic) take any chances, there will be. Would you please send us your decision:" Most of Vanguard's turndowns go something like this: "Your patriotic interest and willingness to be the first space man is appreciated. However, at present there is no requirement for a space passenger. When the time comes, I am sure, there will be full .consideration of all qualified volunteers." Missiles expert Wernher von Braun predicts it will be four to five years before the United States can send a man into orbit and return. America's immediate plans for launching satellites involve sending up scientific'instru- ments, and perhaps a.small living thing, but nothing so heavy as a human.

You'll find that every successful announcer is the product of long years of work. A voice that has authority and ease is not something you can develop overnight. • 'I can name you two hahdfuls of old time announcers who are still working hard — fellow like Ben Grauer, Hugh James, Ed Herlihy, Don Wilson. I could tick off dozens more. They're working and will continue to work because they've labored long and hard to Minor Accident 'n Market Near Fourth A minor accident at 11:25 a.m. yesterday caused damage to one car.

TV Work Is Tougher for Announcers/Says Gallop By WILLIAM EWALD United Press Staff Correspondent NEW YORK (UP)—The eyes have it since the 'advent of TV, but that doesn't mean the ears have had it. So. believes Frank Gallop, an announcer . whose mellow tones have been caressing the nation's tympani for more than 20 years. Gallop, an alumnus of such radio shows as Milton Berle's, "gangbusters" and the New York Philharmonic, . currently works for television's Perry Como. Gallop' owns the mystery voice that booms out during the gag station breaks on the NBC-TV Como Show. Where's Old Timers* "Everybody keeps asking what's ! happened to th'e old time an- nouncer," said Gallop, "well, the answer is nothing has happened to him. He's still with us on- TV. The picture hasn't killed him at all. In-fact, he's making more money than ever." However, Gallop confesses TV has made work harder for the announcer. "You can take the 'Stella Dallas' Show I used to c on radio as an example," he sai "I'd walk into the studio 20 mi utes before airtime, look over m copy, and that was it. "On a television show like th Como hour, we work far harde PARK GROUP ELECTS BL1JHART, Ind.'
