eaLJateline WESTERN KANSAS By BETH LILLEY It's dust-devil time in Kansas. These fierce-appearing masses of rotating air can be seen springing up in most any open field. Many of these miniature-like tornadoes attain a goodly size and carry considerable force. Bushels of soft earth have been transplanted from one county to another by the whirlwinds. Scott City's 5th Street, east from Main to the east city limits, is undergoing a re-surfacing job. Some six blocks are being coated. One of the outstanding awards made at the Lane County Fair at Dighton went to Jill Hanks of the Jayhawks 4-H Club. Jill received the American Hereford Assn. trophy for her champion steer, "Curley." Jill is the 10- year-old daughter, of Mr. and Mrs. Joe Hanks, Shields. Elmer Bryant, chairman of the fair board presented her with the trophy. Ulysses had a one-bull rodeo recently. Police received reports of a large Brahma bull meandering around town. Police went into emergency action and the bull headed out of town. A hitchhiker heard police sound the "loose bull" alarm and, according to reports, beat bull and police oar out of sight. Police herded the bull — by car — into a corral only to be brought up short, Allen Lightoap arrived on the scene, picked upj» small piece of bailing wire, fashioned it into a noose-type rope and led the bull away to pasture. Come to find out, the wild bull was the animal Everett Stutzman is train ing to ride in parades. Soneone is always coming 'jp with a "contest" to name some thing. Leoti has joined in. The residents are being asked to submit a name for the Leoti's new home for senior citizens. Persons corn-posing the winning title will receive a $25 Savings Bond. W "Tiz rodeo tim« in Lakin. The Kearny County Saddle Club is sponsoring a rodeo at 7:30 p.m. (MST) tonight and Sunday. A parade was staged this afternoon. A dance is slated after tonight's rodeo. The event is in Loucks Park arena. Automation has taken over the farm scene. The latest development in southwest Kansas may well be the "wafered" hay. Brothers Hershell and Kenny Rictor who farms a couple of miles north of Scott City own a machine that presses alfalfa hay into wafer form. Reckon it won't be long until baled hay. is as outdated as loose-stacked hay ' stacks. —Whether buying oi selling, Telegram Want Adsl To Operate Over One Area Syncom Can Be A First CAPE CANAVERAL. Fla. (AP) —The Syncom 2 space communications station, riding high more than 2,000 miles above the earth, drifted slowly today toward its goal as the world's first satellite to operate over one area of the globe. At its present rate of speed, about 6,800 miles an hour, Syncom 2 will reach a point over the equator above northern Brazil next Saturday. Scientists plan to stop it there by sending radio signals to fire nitrogen jets which will adjust the satellite speed and angle. If all goe s "well, the satelite's speed will increase to about 6,880 miles an hour and thus will be synchronous with the speed of the earth rotating below. The earth at the equator travels 1,040 miles an hour, but Syncom 2 would be like a runner on an outside track who has to move faster to keep pace. The above-Brazil point was se lectcd as the best for communications^ experiments planned between' the Syncom ground stations at Lakehursl, N.J., and on the ship Kingsport, anchored at Lagos, Nigeria, on the coast of West Africa. Early communications tests were rated highly successful by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration. The Kingsport beamed the music of "The Star Spangled Banner," voice tapes and Teletype messages to the drum-shaped package. The satellite sent them back "loud and clear." Officials cautioned that true tests lie ahead when Syncom 2 will b e In position for two -way transmission between Africa and the United States via the two stations. They predicted the satellite will be within radio range of both by Monday. Project Director Alton Jones said major goals are to put the satellite in a synchronous orbit, stabilize it and then establish contact for a long period between Lakchurst and the Kingsport. Because a satellite at Syncom 2's altitude would be within radio range of more than one-third of the earth's surface, only three such craft would be needed for continuous worldwide communications coverage. They would seemingly stand still in space at evenly spac c Points about 22,300 miles above the equator. Makes Bicycle For Blind Boy RAMSEY, N.J. (AP)—A man who loves children and bicycles has built a bike that 'will enable a blind 8-year-old boy and his mother to ride side-by-side. "Wanted, two 24-inch "bikes, so my daddy can have them welded together for mommy and me to ride together. I'm 7Ws and blind. Kenneth Jones, 40 High Street, Ramsey." Mrs. Paul Jones, Kenny's mother, said "a woman from Englewood was kind enough to donate two bike s and Mr. (Wellington) Simpson volunteered to build the bike." Simpson, almost blinded in a freak accident 15 months ago, has built bicycles free for 10 children in his neighborhood at Waldrick. "When I was a kid, I didn't have a bike of my own. Every kid should have a bike," he said. Kenny's bicycle consists of two bikes, connected by three metal bars. 66 Convicts Still Loose in Caracas CARACAS, Venezuela (AP) — Sixty-six convicts who participated in a mass prison break remained at large today.
