Saturday, June 23, 1962—P.M. Lincoln Evening Journal and Nebraska State Journal Interstate Highways of the Future—They Point to Lincoln i Looking south toward Capitol . . . The view is from the interchange connecting Interstate Routes 80 and 180 north of Lincoln, along the path of Interstate 180.

Green and white signs indicating “Business Ijoop 80“ now show a route for travelers who want to leave Interstate 80, enter Lincoln and return to the Interstate. Robert Meyer, stale traffic engineer, said all the necessary signs—about 50—are in place. From the east, these signs indicate a route leaving Interstate 80 in the vicinity of the Waverly and U.S. 11 interchanges. Business Loop 80 follows U.S. 6 and 77 west on Corn- husker Highway to 33rd. The route then goes south on 33rd to Holdrege, west on Holdrege to the 16th-l7th one­ way pair, south to Q Street, west to the 9th-10th one-way pair, south to 0 Street and west on 0. The routing was requested by the Lincoln Chamber of Commerce and Lincoln motel operators. It is designed to tell motorists they may leave the Interstate, come into Lincoln and proceed without retracing their routes back to the point they left the Inter-1 state. i The signs are in the shape | of the Interstate shield, but are not in the red, white and blue Interstate colors.

The Board said several cases involving cutbacks of service in Nebraska were before it at the present time, but it left the door open for possible discussions at a later date. Board Chairman Alan S.

(iirl Screams; liilrmlt'r (ioes Police were seeking a young man, 20 to 25, who broke into an apartment but fled when its tenant awoke. Janet M. Carrow’ of 300 So. 16th, .\pt. .A-4, told officers she was awakened by a noice in her kitchen. She said she got up and saw a youth standing in the room. Miss Carrow said the youth, clad in blue-grey shirt and slacks, fled out a door when she screamed. The intruder was described as about 6 feet tall and weighing 180 pounds. She said he had long hair combed back Norfolk — The largest mass take-off in the history of the Norfolk Airport occurred in early morning. Al>out 3,400 homing pigeons were released in a 450-mile race back to the Chicago area. The pigeons belong to clubs between Racine, Wis., and Joliet, 111., which are about 100 miles apart. Releasing the birds were Edward Hinteslong of Batavia, 111., one of two truck drivers, his wife and 4 eastern Nebraskans, pigeon fans w'ho drove to Norfolk for the occasion. Hinteslong has 10 of his own pigeons entered in the race. “Pigeon racing is a working mail’s hobby,” remarked Hinteslong. “.Vboiit the only reward in it is seeing your bird win. “The winners get paid off about 20 to 1,” he said. The pigeon owner takes as much pride in his bird as the thoroughbred owner does in his horses. 600-Mile Veterans Most of the pigeons which flew' from Norfolk have flown in at least a 600- mile race before. Young birds are started in shorter races, Hintes­ long explained. The more talented are quickly separated from those which can’t tell up I from down, so to speak. There are always some j birds which never return. I The hawk is their natural i enemy. . And there always lurks the danger of fiower lines. Others simply forget their way home. Some become infatuated with their barnyard counterparts of the opposite sex and quickly chuck racing as a career. When a bird arrives back at its homing station, the owner takes a numbered counter or band off its leg and puts the band in a “pigeon clock.” A handle is turned which marks the pigeon’s time. These times, along with the yardage each bird flew, are turned into a central headquarters. The owners figure the exact yardage between t h e starting jwint and the homing station before the race. The bird which averages the most yards per minute is the winner, Mrs. Hinteslong said the best bird will go about 1,700 yards a minute, which is close to 60 miles an hour. F’rank Vrzak of Howells, who helped release the birds, said possibly 100 birds of the 3,400 would make it back in a day. For most, it will take two days. The winners are given prizes and all pigeons w hich make it back between sunrise and sunset are given “day diplomas.” This means the bird might make good breeding stock. Most good birds are priced between $10 and $100. A few Sonic liooins Due Next Week Omaha l-P — Supersonic flights by B58 H-u s 11 e r bombers are scheduled over Nebraska next week, Offutt ,\ir Force Base announced Saturday. This means the probability of window rattling sonic booms. The schedule calls for flights of B58s from Plainview, Tex., to Hastings between 1:45 and 4:45 p.m. June 26 through June 29, and from Plainview to Omaha from 8:20 to 10 p.m., June 26 through June 30. There will be similar flights from Plainview to Pratt, Kan., 1:45 through 4:45 p.m. June 25 through June 29; and from 8:20 to 10 p.m. June 26 through June 30. The B58 Hustlers making these training flights are from Bunker Hill AFB, Peru, Ind. outstanding ones may bring $ 1 , 000 . Owners will learn the results of the Norfolk race in a bulletin. Keith Moore of Schuyler, Joe Mittelsdorf of Omaha and Bob Hudson of Columbus were also here to help with the release. The pigeons were brought to Norfolk in more than 100 cages aboard two trucks owned by pigeon clubs. One of the trucks was purchased by one of the clubs from the .\rmy Signal Corps, from an era when pigeons did what electronic communications equipment do today. Seaton Backs Stronger Nt i iVirs Presented To Lincoln Group Fred Seaton of Hastings, candidate for governor, said in Lincoln he w ants a stronger University of Nebraska. His views were presented to a group of Lincoln businessmen and university pro- lessors who requested his I views on university support. I If elected governor, he said, I “I would want the Unlvcr- i sity to be in better shape 1 than it is now.” He pledged i leadership to this end. I He added; “I could not be satisfied with anything less I than the best state university ! in the Midwest.” Asked if he wished to comment on the House defeat of the farm bill, he said “It is a credit to Congress that the House showed that much sense. I am glad it was defeated.” Airport Bid Date Is Set The Lincoln Airport .Authority will take bids at City Hall at 2 p.m. on July 12 for site preparation for the proposed $3 million aviation program at Lincoln Municipal Airport. Authority Chairman Leo Beck, Jr., said the bids would be taken on three sections. These are overlay of the ex- i s t i n g east-west taxi way, grading and railroad track­ age relocation.
