A Community Theater troupe Boogie Woogied and Shboomed on a ‘'Sentimental Journey” through music of the ’40s and '50s at the All-lowa fair Wednesday evening.
A sparse but plucky audience ignored the lightning in the western sky as the young actors and singers brought back the songs of two and three decades ago.
However, raindrops cut about 15 minutes off the show, even though some of the spectators opened' their umbrellas, deter

had been given no advance notification of the flight but were told about it this morning on their way to breakfast at the Yuri Gargarin Space Center where they are training with the cosmonauts.
Brig. Gen. Thomas Stafford, the Apollo commander for the joint flight, “wished them every success,” Reilly said.
“The flight program of thc Soyuz 14 spaceship envisages joint experiments with the orbital scientific station Salyut 3,” the Tass report said.
The launch was the Kremlin’s first manned space shot since two cosmonauts made an eight-day flight last December.
Rival to Skylab
There was no immediate official word how long the cosmonauts would remain aloft. Boris Petrov, chairman of thc Intercosmos Council, said Wednesday the Soviets did not plan a “prolonged flight.”
The Salyut program is similar to America’s successful Skylab program, climaxed last winter when three Apollo astronauts docked with a space station for

After little more than a week of operation, the Cedar Rapids-based I* a r k Reserva-
t i o n System is “popular beyond all expectations,” accord i n g to vice-president James Rossie.
In fact, the orginal staff of 21 has been expanded to HO, Rossie said, and there is still a problem in the handling of the telephone and mail reservations.
Lots oi Publicity
“Thc number of busy signals JMT hour has been cts high as 7,500.” Rossie commented The service has two telephone
numbers with a total of five available lines.
“We thought when we started that we would have to advertise, but needless to say that has not been necessary,” he continued.
Some of the publicity resulted from an incorrect phone number issued by the National P a r k Service before the operation was established
This, Rossie said, also caused a major headache
The number appearing in the press release was actually the number for the Dearborn Brass Co in Cedar Rapids.
Rossie said the firm received so many calls of inquiry about park reservations that Northwestern Bell had to change its number, at a considerable expense.
In addition to changing company stationery and other materials, Rossie said, he understands that 3.500 Dearborn Brass customers had to be no titled of the switch.
Having received as many as IO.(MMI calls per day, the reservation service is set to expand next year.
Rossie said reservations are expected to be taken for state and private parks, in additon
to the 21 national parks now handled.
Also, Rossie continued, the company is going to be forced to move into larger quarters that are now available at 105 Tenth street NE.
Other changes now in effect include the policy to take no telephone reservation requests more than IO days in advance and limiting confirmation only lo holders of Bank American! or Master Charge credit cards.
Rossie added that with the high volume of business, other
