Those words, scribbled on the back of a piece of yellow accounting paper, give a clue to the beginning of what offi- cials call one of the nation's biggest bank shortages The man who wrote them respected banker George A. Hewlett is dead by his ow hand. His friend, former plumbe John R. Hendrickson, 40, wa indicted by a federal gran juryfyesterday on charges o conspiracy and defrauding national bank.

An hour after launch, the national aeronautics and space administration reported that second stage signals were lost 70 seconds after launching and added: "There is no record of the ;econd stage having fired and we must presume that the sec- ond stage did not fire. 'Visual observations were that a piece fell off the rocket apparently this was above the liquid oxygen tank on the Atlas' first stage. Stay Behind Russians Observers saw a fiery chunk break loose from the rocket about 20 seconds after launch and spiral.into the Atlantic ocean. The failure was a bitter blow to U. S. hopes of jumping back into the space race with Russia, which in recent weeks las scored spectacularly with its Lunik II and HI rockets. One smacked into the, moon; th'e other whirled into a wide orbit around the moon arid earth and took the first pic- tures of the moon's dark side. There is no backup-vehicle for today's shot, so it probably will be several months, before it can again be attempted. This was the second failure for an Atlas-Able ticketed for a shot at the moon. On Sept. 24, another one of the 10-story high rockets blew up on its pad during a static test of its engines. That rocket Was set for an early October launching. If it had been successful, the Unit- ed States would have beaten Russia to the first pictures of the far side. The Sov- iets accomplished this feat shortly after .the scheduled American launching in Octo- ber.

When bank examiners ques- tioned Hewlett about the ab- sence of funds on deposit cov- ering cashier's checks, he sat- isfied them by explaining that funds were in transit.
