Byng players, students, alumni and-the usual-dedicated" fans will see home, games in a modern, large capacity gym come Jan- uary. J. E. Teague, superintendent of the' school, said construction should be completed by January 10. This week the roof goes on the new structure. Construction began Aug. 10 on the 'gym as well as on a seven room Junior High class building adjoining it. The old gym, however, won't be totally removed. Approximate- ly 35 per cent will remain.

Luke's Hospital at Fountain Hill, Pa., despite efforts by doctors to keep him alive. Zizka stopped breathing around 7 a.m. Doctors quickly opened his chest, massaged his heart and he resumed breathing. However, his heart stopped again a little after a.m. and this time it could not be restarted. Zizka was an attache of the Czech United Nations mission here. He also had a shoulder wound inflicted by a Pennsylvania State trooper. Unnoticed The body of Zizka's brown- haired wife, Vera, 40, a bullet through her head, lay unnoticed in their apartment in the Czech mission on upper Madison Avenue for hours as Zizka, leaving behind a note telling of the murder and his suicide intent, began his frenzied 75-mile flight He drove black Cadillac, owned by the mission and bearing diplomatic license plates. Roaring away from the mission 'building, Zizka's car was involved !in two minor traffic accidents near his home. He got out of them by claiming diplomatic immunity.

PASADENA, Calif. (AP) The United States' third straight at- tempt to scout the moon by tele- vision has be- cause of damage to the Ranger 5 lunar rocket by. radiation from re- cent high altitude nuclear blasts. The 755-pound camera-toting spacecraft, launched Thursday from Cape Canaveral, Fla., ran out of electrical power eight hours and 44 minutes later. Scientists said this meant it would be unable to corrects its course and would miss the moon by 300 miles. It also meant Ranger 5 would not be able to operate its tele- vision camera nor to land a quake-measuring device on the moon's surface. Pasadena's Jet Propulsion Lab- oratory, which-built Ranger 5 and is tracking it through space, said the spacecraft apparently failed to draw electrical power from its wing-like solar, panels to operate, its instruments. Its only source of power then was a small reserve battery with a life of eight to nine hours. That battery went dead just as scien- tists were trying to command the spacecraft to fire a small rocket that would re-aim it at the moon. Cause of the-failure of-the solar power system.was not announced, but .there was unofficial specula- tion by some space experts that the craft's, delicate solar cells could have been damaged by radi- ation from recent high altitude nuclear blasts over the Pacific.' "It's too .early to say what went a laboratory spokesman said. "We may never be sure. All we know at the moment is that the spacecraft failed to 'get power from its solar panels." Radiation of' the kind emitted in. nuclear explosions sometimes is -trapped in the dangerous belt of radiation surrounding, the earth.

(AP) A massive hurri- cane remained almost sta- tionary 290 miles south of here in the Atlantic today, a menace to shipping and a threat to the mainland. Hurricane Ella, the sea- son's fifth -tropical storm, was expected to remain" in her position until about 5 p. m. tonigh't, when the Weather Bureau forecast it would begin a slow north- eastward movement. The storm, has held her position since Thursday. The weather Bureau said three of its planes were dispatched to fly through the hurricane to- collect research data at various levels. High Winds Top winds in the hurricane con- tinued at 90 m.p.h. near its eye and. gale force winds, those up to 54 m.p.h., were affecting shipping over an area almost 600 miles in diameter. The center of the storm was 290 miles south of Cape Hatteras, still well off, the coast. Along the North Carolina coast, winds in, gusts between 20 to 30 m.p.h., were reported with Oak Island near Wilmington reporting' gusts 'm.p.h; The wind, swelling seas whfch buffeted-the teaches and overcast .skies, were the''only, coastal- indi- cations, of-the Atlantic storm.

Many recall hurricanes of the past which sat off the coast for days, then turned- suddenly inland. The Navy at Norfolk assigned ships in the harbor to storm anchorages and alerted crews to be ready to move if the storm approached that area.
