Knievel watched on Sunday as the second skycycle tested in the past year plunged to the bottom of the 500foot-deep canyon in southern Idaho. A helicopter later retrieved the craft from the water. The test firing ended when a parachute malfunctioned at about 2.000 feet. The rocket- powered vehicle nosedived into the canyon. "The combined cost of both vehicles which have now gone into the Snake River is almost $500,000," Knievel said. "This makes the Snake River the richest river in the state of Idaho. In fact, there is a rumor that all the trout are turning to gold." The first skycycle landed in tile canyon last November and was not recovered until last month. Sunday's launch came without fanfare or advance warning. A spokesman for the Knievel stunt said a third sky cycle was being completed in Sacramento, Calif. "I feel that under circumstances like this, when you a r e trying to do something that nobody else has attempted, you must have failures to achieve success," said Kneivel. " A n d the third time is the charm. So, there will be no more tests and everything is go for Sept. 8." The Montana daredevil plans to reach 3,000 feet over the 1.500-foot-wide canyon, landing by parachute on the north side. Assigned Air Force S/Sgl. Clayton L. Barnelt has been assigned to duty at Clark Air Force Base in the Philippines as a member of a Pacific Air Force unit. He is a member of the 374th Field Maintenance Squadron and the son of Mr. and Mrs. John Barnett of Springdale. 92 74 37 75 .. cl .. cd ' .. cd .. cl .80 . . c d j Hil-And-Run Victim Identified BERRYVILLE, Ark.
