Mayor's Aides Plan Valley Air Survey Valley Times TODAY City Hall Burean Members of the Valley Administrative Center Coordinating Committee have been invited to participate in a helicopter tour of the San Fernando Valley Wednesday to view possible site locations for future administrative centers. Plans for the aerial tour were announced by William E. McCann and Rex Layton, administrative assistant and liaison officer to Mayor Norris Poulson, respectively. The takeoff will be 10 a.m., next Wednesday from the Van Nuys Airport after a perliminary meeting of the committee members at the Skytrails Restaurant. Committee members In addition to McCann and Lay-ton, who are co-chairmen, include Dave Anderson, Woodland Hills, Thomas W. Clark, North Hollywood, Charles W. Crawshaw, North Hollywood, Sam Greenberg, now being developed in the West Valley and Van Nuys, with the later destined to serve as municipal headquarters for the 212-square-mile district after construction of the $5 million police headquarters building and other city, county, state and federal structures. Because of the indicated sustained v population growth of the Valley, expected to reach the 1 million ' mark during 1964, Layton said advance planning was believed necessary to cope with this predicted expansion. No definite ideas have been formulated where other be required m future years, but some observers believe they might be considered for the northern, northeast and eastern section which will not be close to the West Val-j ley and Van Nuys municipal Nuys, Ferdinand Mendenhall, Van Nuys; Ben OBrien Pacoima; Earl M.

Experts Study X-15 'Hot Nose' Flight Aeronautical experts today studied performance data on the rocketship X-15 gained from tests of the plane with a new hot nose cone. The test flight with the cone was made at Edwards Air Force Base near Lancaster Friday by Neil Armstrong, 30, youngest of the X-15s half-dozen pilots. The prototype of the plane that may be the first to take an American to the fringe of space attained a speed of 1,254 miles an hour and an' altitude of 50,000 feet before its fuel was exhausted. Armstrong set the ship down on the Rodgers Dry Lake bed on a special skid after ejecting a lower tail section. Instruments in the cockpit connected to the nose cone report any direction deviation instantly so the pilot can make corrections swiftly. The corrections will be needed when the X-15 makes its probe to 100 miles above the earth at 4,000 miles an hour.

Los Angeles . Superior Court Judge Edwin L. Jefferson imposed the sentence on Jimmie Shields of 14808 Archwood St., after de nying a request the youth be turned over to juvenile authorities because it would not be good to confine him with hardened criminals. Last June 22 Shields killed furniture dealer Sheik Dastagir, 40, outside his home at 13944 Valerio St., Van Nuys. The manslaughter verdict was returned against Shields last Nov. 10 by a jury of 10 women and two men in Judge Jeffersons court.

But he claimed he changed his mind at the last moment and the gun went off only after Dastagir surprised him and they fought over a revolver.

He said there are also Indications that the same people were arranging accidents which would lead to false claims on their employer through workmens compensation and through claims against the third partys insurance. Arrest of Williams and Zucker came near the scene of a planned accident where a CHP officer working as an undercover agent was to be hit by a car driven by Zucker, Fuson said. Williams, alleged to have worked as a go-between in setting up the scheme, was to get 25 per cent of money received as a result of the accident, the inspector said. The undercover agent was to receive 30 per cent of the insurance settlement. The rest of the money was to be split up with Zucker and Cooksey, it was alleged. were not Very fortunately, as a matter of fact, since Titus did not carry any weapons with him on the climb. Because a newspaper reporter was with Titus company, he was a national hero by the time he returned to the United States. President McKinley held a half-hour Interview with him and granted him an appointment to West Point. It was in 1902, while he was still a plebe at the military .academy, that Roosevelt formally awarded him the medal. This was the first and only time a cadet or, in fact, any Army man ever has received the medal there. Titus retired to the Valley in 1930. He never saw battle action after the Boxer Re hellion. He was stationed in this country as a training officer during World War I. He and his wife, Grace, moved into their home at 4832 Ben Ave. right away. Weve been right here ever since, he says, except for chasing around the country some after we got the trailer bug. The couple, now mar ried for 55 years, actually made two transcontinental tours in a trailer. They have two sons, Calvin P. Jr., of the home address, and Donald W., of Danville, Calif., and six grandchildren. And as for his own opin ion of his exploit 60 years ago, Titus has this to say. It was terribly foolhardy. am sts't, Xtfwy'v.-; CIVIC AND COMMUNITY OFFICIALS DEDICATE PARKING LOT Harris, Blonsky, kneeling; Pickering, King, Shepard, standing. Dedication Of Parking Lot Eases Reseda Traffic Load At least 90 Reseda motorists will have parking worries eased today. This is following- the official dedication of a 90-stalJ $100,000 parking lot Friday at Baird street and Sherman Way in Reseda., The lot is the third in a trio of lots constructed under a $325,000 bond issue passed under the 1951 California vehicle parking act. Officials at the dedication ceremonies included Walter H. King, director of off-street parking for the City; Ed Harris, member of the City Off-street Parking Commission; Fred Blonsky, president of the Resqda Chamber of Commerce; Le-land Pickering, chairman of the Chamber parking committee: and Tom Shepard, field secretary for Councilman Patrick McGee. King also announced Friday the sale of bonds totaling $260,000 on the four City-owned off-street parking lots in North Hollywood. The bonds, sold to Bylth & Company, a national investment firm, will be retired in approximately 30 years with revenues from the North Hollywood parking meter fund. The construction of the lots HOLIDAY Continued from Page 1 for advice on how to avoid the holiday hangover. For myself, I stick to the following rules and never have a hangover, said the medical specialist who replied. I make sure there is something in my stomach to mop up the drinks before diner. I always at some bread or a spongecake before leaving home, I stick to sherry and avoid gin and cocktails like the plague. I always limit myself to two sherries. I take care to drink good wine and I know how much I can stand. It is usually a bad thing to mix drinks but 1 know I can deal with a small brandy at the end. When I get home I drink half a pint of water, and Ive long ago forgotten what a hangover feels like. If you follow this advice and still have a hangover? Take two A.P.C. tablets, the initials standing for aspirin, phenacetin and caffein, the doctor replied. You can buy them from a chemist (druggist) for almost nothing, certainly less than the shilling you would have to pay for doctors prescription." Now go and enjoy yourself in the property party spirit. On two pre-dinner sherries? was originally financed by members of the North Hollywood Chamber of Com-' merce. These businessmen will now be reimbursed from the bond sale money. Films Draw Blame For 'Spiritual Smog' Irresponsible film producers were blamed Friday for a vicious spiritual smog which now covers the nation. Crew Leaps From Bomber BARRE, Vt. (AP) An eight-man Air Force crew parachuted from a burning B-52 jet bomber just before it crashed and exploded on a farm late last night. First word that the crew bailed out of the stricken plane came several hours after the crash when an air man appeared at a residence at Schroon Lake, N.Y. The Vermont State Police radio said the man identified himselLas a member of the Air Force plane and quoted him as saying he was the fourth or fifth man to para chute out. New York State Police quickly organized a massive search of the Adirondack Mountain area of New York State for other crewmen of the plane. No bodies were found near the wreckage. CRASH Continued from Page 1 old youths in the car were probably Innocent .hitchhikers picked up byl three girls and a boy, all 13 years old. The driver of the car was reported in satisfactory condition, while. the girls suffered possible head and pelvis fractures. The older boys were reported not seriously hurt. Mrs. Atwood suffered a cut leg. Except for the driver, the youths were all released to the custody of their parents. Police said the younger group had committed two burglaries, two purse snatches and had stolen the car. Rev. Raymond K. Riebs, speaking before an overflow crowd of the North Hollywood Community Coordinating Council, .said, only through community action can something be done. Assailing both the films and the method in which they are advertised, he said, Bad movies destroy the spiritual foundation we are trying to build. There is a production code, but the producers seem to be ignoring the standards. Reverend Riebs, president of the North Hollywood Ministerial Association, , was one of four speakers on a panel which drew civic and service club leaders from across the Valley. Other speakers Included Mrs. Philip Reichlein, audio visual and motion picture chairman; Albert Zugsmith, independent motion picture producer and maker of High School Confidential, and Clark Wales, director of public relations for the Association of Motion Picture Producers.
