   Abilene Reporter-News, The (Newspaper) - December 14, 1962, Abilene, Texas                               "WITHOUT OR WITH OFFENSE TO FRIENDS OR FOES W E SKETCH YOUR WORLD EXACTLY AS IT if 82ND YEAR, NO. 181 ABILENE, TEXAS, FRIDAY MORNING, DECEMBER JST PAGE ONE The Flashlight Is the Abilene High School yearbook. Wednesday was the day the Flashlight took club pictures for this year's edition. The announcements of time and place must have trickled across town. The AHS Roman Forum I Club was all lined up to be photographed. Someone took a second look lit two of the posing club "mem- bers." "Get the command was yelled. "We like to have you over NOT in our pictures." So the two Roman Forum I somewhat sur- prised at being recognized, col- lected their Cooper High School jackets and quietly stole away. They were the only invaders recognized. Humor has it, however, that when the AHS Flashlight pic- tures are developed, there, big as life, will stand some grinning CHS students. Rumor has it, further, that when Cooper High club pictures are printed, there, big as life, will stand some grinning AHS students. Rumor has it, finally, that some school officials, who'll have to have some pictures re- shot, ain't happy. They don't see the humor the kids do. Santa Claus is wearing.blue and white this season in North Runnels County, the Winters Enterprise reports. He is decked out in orange and white at Ro- tan and his traditional red and white, good Christmas hues, fit right in with the color scheme at Albany. The old fellow has put cleats on his boots, shaved his beard so his helmet will fit and he is suddenly thicker across the shoulders than he is through his middle. That's the way he. is in Win- ters, in Rotan and in and in Abilene Friday and Sat- urday nights for, here at the mid-point of December when St. Nick should be busy about his gift business, he still has his mind very much on football. Albany's red and white Lions and Rotan's orange and white Yellowhammer's tangle tonight at Abilene's Public Schools Sta- dium out next the fair grounds. In that engagement our best po- sition is the chicksn one, strict neutrality. Saturday the blue Blizzards of Winters will blow into town lo meet Jacksboro. In that one it is safe to be bold. Jacksboro is a long way off. Santa will look real good in blue. fifie fi96T OT IN TWO SECTIONS Associated Prest (ff) DISTRIBUTES GIFTS First Lady Jacqueline Ken- nedy is shown here passing out gifts at Junior Village, a District of Columbia institution for homeless young- sters.

SV11TO 3103 Relay jnot Termed 'Complete Success' Communications Satellite Orbits CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. (A -Lifted aloft beautifully by sleek Thor-Delta rocket, a sate ite called Relay slid into orb Thursday night and soaked olar energy in preparation- for eries of communications exper ients linking three continents. A little more than three hour fter liftoff, as Relay completec s first trip around the earth, pokesman for the National Aero autics and Space Administratior said it was in orbit and, "The or Judge Rules Communists Can't Claim Amendment WASHINGTON S. Dist. Judge Alexander Holtzoff ruled Thursday that the Communist party could not claim the Fifth Amendment protection against self-incrimination to prevent reg- :stration as an agent of the Soviet Union. He denied a defense motion for a directed verdict of innocent aft er both the government and the Communist parly ended their cases abruptly. After a Friday recess, because the judge has other commitments that day, the trial is expected to go to the jury Monday. The Communist party is charged, in a 12-count indictment handed down a year ago, with failure to register under the 1950 Subversive Activities Control Act as a "Communist-action organize tion. substantially controlled, dominated and directed by the So- viet Union." Eleven counts of the indictment deal with the failure to register and the 12th with failure to pro- vide information about its officers, members and finances. After announcing it planned lo call two witnesses, the govern- ment called only one, reporter Lissner of the New York Times. Lissner testified that he had covered a conference held by top Communist Gus Hall on FOR GOOOFELLOWS The town of Ranger has a bad collective case of swell-head. To put it another way, as the Ranger Times did, everybody and his dog has, has had, or has been exposed to, the mumps. Ranger City Health Officer Dr. W. P. Watkins confirms the rumor, in so far as humans are concerned. Mumps started about the time the school term did, he says, and in November and thus far in December have reached epi- demic proportions. There have been at least 100 cases in the town, some 15 of them raging at the moment, Dr. Watkins estimated. One first grade class had 17, more than half its membership, out with the jawsome disease at the same time. The health officer's report doesn't extend to the canine population but the Times re- ports that Timmy, a toy Man- chester owned by Felton Huff of Ranger, got a bit puny the other day. On examination it was found that the glands in Timmy's neck were swollen. The diagnosis: Timmy has the mumps, too.

At a news conference an hour fter launch, Robert Grey of ASA said, "The thing should be bout where we intended it to be." Grey said the launch was only ne second late, as the Thor-Delta balked up its 14th straight suc- essful mission.

Relay, a first cousin to the hiPh- successful Telstar satellite, was unched at a time when it would ivc maximum exposure to sunlight during its first four or- bils. This was necessary to allow the solar cells studding its eight-sided shape to convert solar energy into electrical energy to charge fully its storage batteries.
