KAOINE SUNDAY BULLETIN Jan. 7, 1862 Sec. I, Page 4 Space Agency Plans Giant Balloon Shot CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. —(/?)—The space agency will attempt within a few days to inflate a giant space balloon high above the Bahama Islands in a test of techniques for launching an advanced Echo communications sateihte. If successful, the unfolding of the 13-story-tall balloon should provide a spectacular show for observers along the cast coast of Florida, southern Georgia and the Bahamas. The National Aeronautics; and Space Administratior said that if weather conditions permit, residents ir these areas should see the huge plastic ball as "a very bright moving star in thei southern sky." Maybe Thursday The launching of the Thor booster rocket from Cape Canaveral is scheduled this week, possibly Thursday, at an hour when the big bag's aluminum-coated skin will reflect brilliantly the rays of the rising sun. The ball is not intended to orbit, as Echo I did, nor will communications experiments be tried. NASA is launching the vehicle on a ballistic course designed to reach an altitude of about 950 miles before falling back towards earth, possibly to a fiery death in the atmosphere. Officials reported "objective of the flight is to test the ejection and inflation system of the rigidized Echo passive communications satellite in the space environment prior to orbital flight." If the forthcoming shot is a success, an attempt will be made later this year to orbit a similar balloon, to be called Echo II. Retains Form Unlike Echo I, which was of thin, collapsible plastic, the new balloon is made of more rigid material which, when inflated and stretched to its full 135-foot spherical shape, will retain that form! until it falls back into the atmosphere. At .'"iflO pounds, it will be about four times as heavy as the 100 -foot diameter Ixho'i I, which was rocketed into orbit Aug. 12, 1960, to study the feasibility of usinj.; satellites as reflectors for radio signals and voice rnessii^fs between distant points. It proved a tremendous success and still is in orbit, visible as a shiny object in many parts of the world over which it passes. Although its surface has become wrinkled. Echo 1 is still sufficiently rounded to reflect bark to earth many of the messages and signals beamed to it. Thf wrinklinj.; resulted in development (if the new .material, about 40 time's more rijiid. to he tested next week Slightly Thicker E .i ho is skin was OOO.'i- inc h thii k. about the thic k ness of the plastn wrapping on a ( iji,ircfte p.u k.i^c 'Ihc ne'.v h .jlloon is slightly thu k- er— OOOfiO im h On launching the balloon will be folded neatly in a pill- shajjcd canister 44 inches in diamfter and 36 inches high.

Diosdado Macapagal's office called the loan reports speculation and said the mission merely will consult with officials of the International Monetary Fund. i ompanij '1 Localions—Uptown and Downtown M C'IH I HI - Federal Deposit Insurance Cf)i|)nralJon-Fcdcral Reserve .System t'oiidoii.sod Siatcnicnt of CondUion — UvciMiibcr 31, 1961 Cash $ 4,397,737.59 U.S. (MivernmenI Securities l(i,73(),09().47 .State and IMunieipal Bonds 3,79(),2n.L") Loans 10,5()9,639.()() F-ederal Reserve Hank 4(),.50().0() Hank Building 341.794.35 liciiiipinent 1.00 (Mher .Assets 15S,053.35 Total $3(1,028,033.51 IJAKliJriFS Capital Stock $ 600,000.00 Surplus 750.000.00 Undivided Profits 468,538.98 llcserves 655.786.29 Deposits — Demand and Time ... 32,158,182.75 U.S. Government 1,395,525.49 33,553,708.24 Total $36,028,033.51 oi I i(i:ii .s U (i .\S{ III NBHINI K rrcsidcnt II ( .

The Benefits of Bank Credit When you save at a bank you establish a relationship which will be of great value to you when you need to obtain credit. Bank credit is an important asset in all transactions involving the sending, spending or borrowing of money. If you are never known at a bank it may be difficult for you to take advantage of the financial facilities that are available only at your bank. Being known at a bank lends confidence and prestige to all your business dealings.

REIHER RACINE SUNDAY BULLETII* Jan- 7, 1982 Sec 1, Page'lJ U.S. Purchase of U.N. Bonds Is Denounced WASHINGTON — (/P)—A iSouthern Democratic Senator and a Midwestern Republican Congressman opposed Saturday U.S. purchase of bonds :to help the United Nations out of a financial jam. Sen. Harry F. Byrd of Virginia and Rep. H, R. Gross of Iowa—both longtime foes of what they regard as excessive federal spending— issued statements saying they would .oppose administration efforts to have Congress approve iU.S. purchase of $100 million in U.N. bonds. "Ruse for Coercion" ! Byrd said the move to market U.N. bonds is "a ruse for the coercion of nations . . . who oppose certain U .N. special projects to the extent •of not wishing to pay for i them." Gross said he would attempt to block any U.S. participation in the bond transaction by offering a joint resolution of disapproval when •Congress reconvenes next Wednesday. He suid: ! "It is incredible that the 'American taxpayers should be required to pay for the i dereliction of such (U.N.) imembers as the Soviet Un! ion." Deficit Rising The United Nations pro- I poses to issue $200 million in p.'i-ycar bonds bearing 2 per cent interest to wipe out a deficit resulting in large part from U.N. operations in the 'Congo aimed at pacification 'and unification of that central African country. The deficit is expected to reach $170 million by June 30. Efforts to collect special assessments to meet extraordinary expenses have been stymied by refusal of several countries—including the Soviet Union, France, Belgium and Portugal—to pay such assessments. There is no U.N. imachinery to enforce collec- •tion of special assessments. Two years' delinquency in regular assessments can 'bring suspension of a member's voting rights. iVisIf by JFK Not Confirmed ! MADISON — — It's still not known whether President Kennedy would accept ian invitation to speak to a j Democratic Party Jefferson- Jackson Day dinner in Mil- jwaukee this spring, j Patrick J, Lucey, state 'Democratic chairman, and JGov. Gaylord Nelson returned jto Madison from Washington iwithout being able to see the ^president, Kennedy arrived I back in Washington from 'Palm Beach, Fla., Friday night, but the other men had to return to Wisconsin earlier. Nelson said he and Lucey 'conferred with Kenneth O'Donnell, presidential appointments secretary, and that iO'Donncll said he would let .them know whether the pres- 'ident could speak at the dinner. Shark Attacks, Damages Vessel MOSSEL BAY, South Africa — ^I?) — A "jumping jack" shark Saturday attacked and damaged the motor fishing vessel Peggy so badly she had to be towed 16 miles to this South Atlantic port. The shark had given the fishermen lots of trouble, taking most of their catches off the hooks. The Peggy crew tried to beat it off with clubs, but the shark wheeled back and badly holed the boat beneath the engine. Sell Clothes Dummy with Jackie's Features COPENHAGEN. Denmark —A clothes dummy with the features of Jacqueline Kennedy is being marketed in Europe for shopwindow_^ displays, a Danish firm an -i nounced Saturday. ' Francesco Lopez, Spanish- born artist who designed tha dummy, said he was "inspired by Mrs. Kennedy'^ serene beauty, in particulac .her piquant face and her finei j figure wfiich is so easy to put Iclothes on." Lopez designed the facei from two wall-sized portraits of Mrs. Kennedy.
