Joy as the best location for a new Clearfield Airport were explained recently to the Clearfield Area Jaycecs. Eldon Bloom, chairman of the joint commission, was the second speaker the Jaycees have heard in recent weeks on the airport site controversy. Previously, they had invited Miss Roberta Sabbato, operator of the Sabbato Aviation Service at the present Clearfield Airport, to present her side of the story. Mr. Bloom explained that the Crissman site was recommended by Bellanle and Clauss, a planning firm hired to evaluate possible sites for a new airport. He told the Jaycees that two other planning firms had also made the same recommendation. Minimum construction and maintenance costs were considered in the overall commission study, Mr. Bloom reported. Secondly, Mr. Bloom continued, the present airport is not adequate for current, let alone future, needs. There is no possibility of expansion of the runway because of the terrain at the airport, the Jaycees were told. In comparison the Crissman site, said Mr. Bloom, has greater possibilities for future growth, Clair Rutter, a professional pilot since 1944, replied to a question that instrument landings at the Crissman site would not be affected by the Penelec Generating Station at Shawville.

"4 State Highway Beautification Action Awaited By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS HARRISBURG (AP) - The House appears ready to act on its highway beautification proposals following the adoption of several amendments to a bill to regulate junkyards. Rep. Edward W. McNally, chairman of the Highways Committee, said the junkyard bill and a companion measure to establish roadside rests will move as a package. The legislature was in recess today. The Senate is due back at 4 p.m. Monday and the House at 4 p.m. Tuesday. In a comparatively light session Thursday, the Senate received from committee proposed constitutional amen d-ments to lower the voting age to 20 and add two years to the terms of legislators. Also reported tc the Senate floor were three stopgap appropriations, totaling $135 million, to operate the state government for a three-month period in the event of a legislative stalemate over Gov. Scranton's budget requests. The Senate has passed the $1.29 billion general appropriation bill, but the Democratic-controlled House has refused to act on it. Instead the House has broken thp general appropriation into more than 200 separate bills, only 15 of which have been passed and sent to the Senate, House amendments to its junkyard bill would bring the measure in compliance with federal regulations and link it with the roadside rests measure McNally said. The bill, as amended, would give the stale highways secretary authority to screen junk- Albert C.

Following Surveyor Sends More Photos Of Lunar Terrain By RALPH D1GHTON AP Science Writer PASADENA. Calif. (AP) - Surveyor 1, triumphant U. S. spacecraft with feet planted firmly on the moon, radioed its second long stream of pictures early today - photos of itself and lunar terrain, containing no surprises. Some of the second series were out of focus, hurriedly taken to speed the camera on a full-circle sweep of the landing site - the Sea of Storms near the moon's equator. Olhers of the series were remarkably detailed, some showing items as small as one-eighth of an inch. Scientists, after studying results of the full-circle sweep, plan later to turn the camera back to snap interesting areas. The 620-pound spacecraft settled gently on its three shock-absorbing legs early Thursday after a spectacularly successful 63-hour voyage over a quarter of a million miles. Scientists said lhe accomplishment put the Surveyor program - an effort involving plans for a total of seven Surveyor shots at a cost of $725 million - ahead by one year. The feat, history's first truly soft landing on the moon, was hailed as a significant advance in the race to land men on the lunar surface by 1970. It also brought from President Johnson, along with praise, a renewed call for preserving the reaches of space for peaceful, scientific activities. Satellite Successful Launch Shatters 17-Day Jinx for Project By HOWARD BENEDICT AP Aerospace Writer CAPE KENNEDY, Fla. (AP) -The Gemini 9 astronauts - shattering a 17-day jinx - rode a mighty Titan 2 rocket into orbit today and sped at 17,500 miles an hour toward a rendezvous with a target satellite. After two heartbreaking scrubs, astronauts Thomas P. Stafford and Eugene A. Cernan finally got going on a vital, three-day flight that could bring the U.S. its second space triumph of a busy week. "For the third time, go!" Stafford quipped as he sat in the spacecraft poised for the launch. Just 31 hours after the Surveyor moonship landed softly on the lunar surface and sent back dramatic pictures of possible manned landing sites, the Titan propelled Gemini 9 aloft on a vital, three-day rendezvous and space walk mission. The big Titan, with the rays of a bright sun glistening on its sides, rose slowly from its launch pad and sped out over the Atlantic Ocean, followed by a big white tail of vapor. "We're right down the middle," flight director Eugene Kranz shouted. "Everything,'* he told Stafford, "is green and go."
