The contracts, almost 53D.OOO less than the 5300,000 available for the work, are part of an 5865.000 capital improvement bond issue voted last April. The contracts went to Buddy Warren Co.. Inc., for 5148.873.25 for water system work; to John G. Holland Construction Co. for J10S.78S.75 for sewer system work, and to Couch Construction Co. for $13,170 for a sewer lift Frank Booth, executive director, said the commission decided against the proposal because it "has determined that while the danger of damage or destruction exists, the need for development in the coastal area overrides the risk." The commission said the hurricane and high water warning will go on all orders approving bonds for districts in unprotected coastal areas. State law requires the commission to review proposed bond issues for new construction issues by most water control and improvement districts. j The warning will be transmitted to district directors, the state attorney general's office and county clerks where the projects are located. When recorded by county clerks, the commission said, the warning will become part of land abstracts in the districts. The commission said it would place in its records and inform water district directors of observations based on U.S. Weather Bureau and Army Corps of Engineers studies hurricanes.

Eight Space Flights Have Had Trouble CAPE KENNEDY, Fla. (AP) — Eight of America's 12 manned space flights have run into major problems. But the courage, skill and training of astronauts have prevented any disasters. When Gemini 8 began to spin violently Wednesday, command pilot Neil A. Armstrong, a civilian, made a last-ditch decision to use his only remaining system of maneuvering jets to bring it under control. If he had exhausted the fuel in the system, his lUe and the life of pilot David R- Scott, an Air Force major, could have been jeopardized as they returned to earth.

They pulled the Gemini 8 out of a spir that reached at least six revolutions a minute and brought it to a landing almost exactly in the middle of the planned landing one. Problems in space do not automatically mean a reverse for the space program. During Cooper's first space mission — the Faith 7 flight of May 15-16, 1963 — drinking wafer leaked into the cabin and ground stations feared that the automatic re-entry system might have been short circuited. They directed Cooper to fly the capsule manually back to earth and he became the first spaceman to do so. Astronauts James A.

The application blanks are being made available as the Socia" Security Administration seeks to contact 3.1 million senior citizens before a March 31 deadline imposed by the Medicare law. President Johnson has pro claimed March as "National Medicare Enrollment Month.' He urged all federal agencies and all citizens to cooperate in enrolling senior citizens in the program. Initially, some two and one half million application blanks were distributed throughout the 50 states. Additional forms are available as needed. Through direct mailings and other means, the Social Security Administration has had contact with 16 of the 13.1 million litizens who will be 65 or over on July 1.

By CYNTHIA LOWRY AP TV-Radio Writer NEW YORK (AP) — The big space doubleheader Wednesday started off in what has become, to veteran viewers of rocket launchings, completely uneventful fashion. The countdown moved along briskly. The old space hands like ABC's Jules Bergman, CBS' "alter Cronkite and NBC's Huntley-Brinkley-McGee team slipped easily into the sometimes colorful, often confusing jargon of the astronauts When the sleek Titan rockel vith its human payload lifted off gracefully in a cloud of coral-colored smoke, the prelimi naries had been so precise and businesslike that this viewer for the first time, watched with interest but without apprehen sion. During most of the afternoon the networks returned to thei usual strings of soap operas game shows and comedy reruns until it was time for Gemini an(? Agena to dock. Then all net works returned to their specia overage, trotting out all theii and gadgets to demon ate — for the 20th time, i -,ed — the way the two rafts would join. It was still a extbook operation. Then, in the middle of the ear- y news shows on CBS and NBC. word came of the "violent ma- euvers" of the docked capsules nd astronaut Armstrong's re- jort that Gemini continued tr "ol! uncontrollably. CBS' Walter Cronkite never inished the news show and con- inued right on covering Gemini. NBC, for some reason, started to broadcast its regular pro gram, "The Virginian," but not :or long. ABC started "Batman." then reported on Gemini went back to "Batman" and finally dropped it. Fictitiou? adventures were dropped for real, high drama. Information was scanty al through the evening. The televi sion reporters speculated cau tiously and soothingly — there was not much else they could do — but their own apprehension was obvious. The good news finally cam around 10:30 EST — it seemed to have been an eternity — tha a rescue plane had "the space craft in sight" and that it had splashed down. Then at ll:3t the suspense was definitely ove — although the mystery of th malfunction was unsolved. The three networks, as usua chairman of the Baytown group and a member of the Harris County Board of Trustees for Mental Health and Mental Retardation whose task it is to establish centers in Harris County, said his board had voted Fri- da'y to secure the services of a Community Planner. His job would be to advise peo-l pie in the various catchment ireas on how to go about es- ablishing centers. He would also be responsible for coordinat- •15 the coverage of the various areas. He would be available to lie Baytown community and assisted in helping solve the Baytown problem. An important issue to be decided is whether it is wiser to be a part of the Harris County program only, or whether it is wiser to go independently and include other communities in the area. In either case, the Rev. Bomhoff was confident that Baytown would have the cooperation of Harris County authorities. Kagan implied that an aggressive program of action that would serve to provide maximum services for the Bayshore area would invite the respect of those in authority' in Austin. He said authorities all along the line ere eager to see something get arted. He pointed out that the ner the services offered, the Card, for international Air Mail First Day Covers of any of them may be ordered at face value.

On March 28, the Houston and Kalveston Philatelic Societies are to have a joint meeting, at the Seawall Cafe meeting room. Some from Baytown are going and it should be an interesting meeting. The Texas Philatelic Association is to hold its annual convention and exhibition at the Tropicana in San Antonio June 17-19, with the Houston club's annual exhibition to be held the previous weekend. Two door prizes are to be given at the next meeting of th Baytown Stamp Club, to be held at 7 p.m. Thursday, March 24 at Sterling Library. One prize will be for adults and one for children.

The Democratic majority — whose findings were disputed almost all the way down the line by the Republican committee members — recommended that: 1. A standby tax program should be designed and enact<i immediately with a provision lat it should come into effect 'henever Congress passes, and he President signs, a joint reso- ution bringing it into opera- ion.' ' By the joint resolution tech- \ lique it would be possible to ^ vrite new tax rates into law in a »ingle day, lawmakers said, in- tead of the two or more months normally needed. 2.

While both will have materia exhibited from all over the world SIPEX is purely non - commercial, and is sponsored by a non profit organization. This is no to say that INTERPEX will be an untouchable.
