FORTY-TWO NORAD TO CHECK SANTA'S COURSE By EDWAHD M. M'MAMJS COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo Dec. ZO--(UPI) The deadly serjl ous business of scanning the northern skies for hostile aircraft will lake on a happy note again this Christmas eve. For (he eighth year in a row, the North American Air Defense Command (NORAD) will keep American and Canadian kids posted on Ihe progress of Sanla Ctaus as he journeys southward from Ihe North Pole wilh his ha" of goodies and eighl reindeer. Sanla has a mysterious way of avoiding being seen by children hut the NORAD headquarters in Colorado Springs says the Did boy shows up with amazing regularity each year on its big display Ecrecn.

NORAD plots his course ami issues hourly dispatches lo United Press International and other Colorado news media, which flash them out across the rest of the comment. The men of NORAD, who soon will more into a huge new combat operations center dug out underneath Cheyenne mountain near Colorado Springs, are not accustomed lo frivolity. And Iheir activities here in keeping a 24-hour defense watch are strictly serious business. But a boy with an Innocent appreciation of the happier side of life got an important message through Ihe i NORAD ivall by telephone one day In December 1955 and that Is what started (he traditional Christmas eve project. The boy was phoning Santa Claus, responding to an advertisement by a Colorado Springs store which installed special telephone lines to lake calls from youngsters.

One of Ihe phone numbers was a single dijjit different from (he i number NORAD center, and one little finger went astray on the dial, ringing (he defense post instead of the slorc. Cot. Harry Shoup, the director ot the center, answered the boy, after a moment of hesitation, asked, "Are you one of Santa's helpers?" First Shoup thought it was a practical joke, but then he re- Renamed to Board Joseph H. Roberts, president of Edgcomb Steel of Mew England, of Milford, has been reflected to a three-year lerm on the board ol directors of Ihe Connecticut a Chamber of Commerce, Inc. MARKET MOVES UNEVENLY LOWER NEW YORK, Dec.

20-(AP) The slock market resumed an irregularly lower trend early this afternoon with volume slackening. Gains and losses ol key slocks ranged from fractions to a point or so. The profit-taking aspect of yearend transactions appeared to be uppermost for the lime being. The list was continuing the same kind of behavior it displayed yesterday. Issues Recoup A number of issues recouped some of the sharp losses taken in yesterday's decline but the general picture was one of losses.

Standard Oil (New Jersey), advancing more a a point lo a new high, reflected renewed investment buying following the company's prediction that cam- called hearing of the phones at the department store and recaptured his Christmas spirit just in time. "I no helper," he said with a ho ho ho. "I AM Santa Claus," A long conversation followed and the boy's principal request was not for a toy for himself but a a i machine his mother. After he hung up, Shoup looked up at the big display screen where aircraft tracks are plotted It shows all of North America and its seaward approaches--and the North Pole is clearly marked. That is when he conceived (he idea (hat NORAD, wilhout detracting from ils vilal job of defense, could lake a few lo quicken the heartbeats of hundreds ol thousands of children by in- struciing to listen for Ihe sound of sleigh bells on Christmas eve.

If all goes well as it has Ihe past, the firs! sighting will come about noon next Tuesday, Dec. 21, from the Thule, Greenland, site of Ihe ballistic missile early warning system. When the sighting is reported to Colorado Springs, a gong will sound in the operations center lo indicate an "unideniified air object" in NORAD territory. At lhe same time an orange track indicating an "unknown" will appear on the theater-size display screen. As the track develops and identification is made, the color will change to green, indicating "friendly." Brig.

Gen. Lewis W. Stocking, lhe current director of the combat operations center, has alerted all 200,000 NORAD personnel in the United Slates and Canada and cautioned them to be sure lo permit safe passage for Santa Ctaus. After all, it's as important to General Stocking as lo anyone else that Santa makes his rounds. The general has four children of his own.

LAST STUDEBAKER PRODUCED IN U. S. SOUTH BEND, Dec. 20-(DPI) The last Studobaker car produced in the United States was scheduled to roll off the assembly lines at lhe South Bend plant today. The milestone car-ended 61 years of domestic automobile production by the company, which started in the highway transportation field making covered wagons.

It came in the same year other automakers were posting records as the best year ever. Studebaker closed the plant to photographers and planned no fanfare for the event, "We're still making and selling cars," a spokesman said, "and we're not really ending production." Automotive production in the highly diversified company now will be carried on at the Hamilton, plant, In the move lo Canada, about Studebaker while collar and hourly rated workers will be thrown out ot work at Ihe South Bend plant, Ihe firm's only U.S. cat-building outlet. However, Studebaker officials have maintained the nameplatc will not die in this country Instead, they said, dealers will receive cars built in Canada. Parts and other necessary items also will be supplied lo dealers.

The firm, which had 12 profitable divisions operating when it was forced to phase out its US auto operations this month, a laken ads in about 300 newspapers in the major marketing areas assuring the public it can "buy a new Sluoebaker with complete confidence." The ad said: "The only real difference is that future production will be concentrated in Hamilton, fi? miles from Buffalo It is geared perfectly for Studebaker's hie.h quality production standards, and future volume."

It had been announced some time ago the Bridgeport Redevelopment agency had offered such a site lo the GSA, but the information given to a Dodd yeslerdav means ths GSA now has decided definitely on that location.

Last week the Senate gave linal congressional approval to a bill which includes $858,000 for site acquisition and planning for the proposed new building which will accommodate a U. S.

It measures 54S feet on State street, from Lafayette street to a point west of Warren street, and 230 feel on Lafayette street.

Redevelopment plans call lor closing off Warren street between Prospect and State streets.
