City Planning Engineer Joseph M. Dearborn, represented Bridgeport at the conference in the absence of the Mayor who was at home with a sore throat. Among the alternatives they said they would consider is the proposal, advanced last winter by T. A. D.

DELAYS BAR DAffNTAKEOFF OF VANGUARD Long Countdown Process Interrupted by Series of 'Holds' T-HOUR NEAR Weather Favorable But It's Anybody's Guess on Launching Moment BULLETIN CAPE CANAVER- AL, Fla., Dec. (INS) The U. S. failed today in the attempt to launch its first earth satellite. The launching carrier was ignited at seconds after 1 1 :45 a.m. but blew up. The rocket did not rise from the ground. By VERN HAUGLAND CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla., Dec. (AP) A launching of America's first test satellite some time to- day appeared possible as crews readied the giant Van- guard rocket. A hoped for dawn launch- ng failed to materialize after i series of "holds" inter- rupted the long and detailed countdown process -which precedes any rocket or mis- sile firing. Final Hours Critical The longest of these "holds" lasted from 3 a.m. to a.m. [when the count was resumed at the latter hour the time remain- ing before a launching assuming that all went well from then was hours and 50 minutes. But it was highly likely that this would be extended by addi- tional delays. The final two hours before a launching are the most critical and frequently develop the most unexpected delays. It was anybody's guess as to when the Vanguard rocket might finally take off into space. The weather looked favorable. (Scattered clouds started clearing after daybreak and the outlook was that wind would be moder- ate. The reasons for the delays were not announced but they could be guesjed at. There were endless numbers of things that could go wrong at the last moment. Count Starts At 1 a.m. the Defense depart- ment announced that a six-hour countdown, or final time checking process, was starting in hopes of a launching at sunrise, at 7 a.m. Shortly thereafter a one-hour "hold" was ordered. Later this delay was extended. One officer reported at ja.m. that the "hold" was still on. (At 4 a.m. an official report said jthe project had been "holding" j since 3 a.m. at "T minus 20 zero" he meant 290 minutes or almost five hours before any actual launching. At 6 a.m. the T minus 290 was still in effect, mean- ing that there would be no launchings until after 11 a.m. There still were no .explana- tions of the long delay, which be- gan to appear increasingly seri- ous. Countdown Dela.v If the launching attempt ends in another "scrub" or cancella- tion as the Wednesday attempt did, it would be necessary hi re- organize the effort and startsall over again with a countdown 'in Uhe neighborhood of 11 hours. (This would involve additional dc- llays and would mean a deferment 'probably until early next week. At a.m. the countdown was It Is ejected Into Its orbit and the radio antennas spring out.
