Self Plans Moved For Ranger J 'Picture' Try PASASDENA, Calif. (AP) -Space scientists sifted through coded, tapes today in a search for the reason why spacecraft Ranger 6 plunged into the moon with its cameras blind to the wonders of the lunar landscape. The agonizing end to a 66-hour flight came at 1:24 a.m. (PST) Sunday when Ranger 6 reached its historic rendezvous —and six television cameras aboard wouldn’t function. Laboratory directors went ahead with plans for Ranger 7’s flight — an identical photo mission—pointing out that the Ranger series is designed to gather information needed for manned U.S. landings planned later this decade. The fruitless journey of Ranger 6 was the sixth straight failure in the Ranger program. The cost to date: $168 million-figures at $28 million a shot. Ranger < was the first of Hie costly spacecraft to complete the difficult moon-approach maneuver faultlessly—which made the blind crash even more frustrating for its designers. The camera system was considered one of the simplest mechanisms on the 804-pound spacecraft. It was turned on by a command flashed from the ground. There was also an automatic timer aboard to do the job. Ranger radioed back word that the order had been received at 1:09 a.m. (PST), as it was nearing the end of a 5,000 m.p.h.-plus plunge toward the moon’s Sea of Tranquility. Newsmen and engineers gathered in a big room at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory listened to the tone of Ranger’s radio signal as it was being amplified through loudspeakers. "Then — when the five-minute warm-up period was over—the emotionless voice of a project engineer announced the first sign that all was not well: “There is no indication of full video power.” Then, for a tense 600 seconds, the hushed crowd listened to See RANGER FAILURE, Pare 2 Brooded Over Death Of Wife By Pete Groh Daily Reporter Staff Writer A New Philadelphia family came to a full circle Sunday—in death. A father, apparently despondent over the sudden and unexpected death of his wife last Oct. 11, murdered his son and then took his own life in a bedroom of their home at 160 11 th St. NE. Dead are: Alvin T. (Al) Herbert, 49, and Richard A., 16, a New Philadelphia High junior. One of the bodies is about to be wheeled from the Herbert home after police completed their investigation. A brother-in-law and distant relative discovered the victims In the bedroom after entering through the garage, the front door having been locked. The victims, both killed by blasts from a 16-gauge “family” shotgun, were found at approximately 7:30 Sunday night by Earl C. (Rudy) Raymond of 1054 Grant St. NW, a brother-in-law, and Emerson Sullivan of Port Washington, an uncle by marriage. Tuscarawas County Coroner Philip T. Doughten is expected to rule murder-suicide in the case and set the time of death at sometime late Saturday night or early Sunday morning.

Store in Miracle Lane Plaza, died Sunday morning in Union Hospital of injuries sustained Saturday when he apparently fell down the basement steps of his home. Tuscarawas County Coroner Dr. Phillip Doughten has not made a ruling in the death, but said this morning “it appeared to be accidental.” He said the man died of a skull fracture and brain injury. Lorenz was found on the basement floor by his wife, the former Judith Ann Newton of Dennison. The couple, according to sheriff deputies, had been visiting with the Robert Bevan family in New Philadelphia, and had returned home at approximately 7 a.m. that morning. Deputy Earl (Lefty) Doriche said there was no banister on the stairs and that Lorenz probably had gone down the basement to fire the furnace.

The statement reads as follows: '“In view of recent announcements concerning the possible reopening of the Midvale Mine, the United Mine Workers of America deems it advisable to present its position in this matter. “Several meetings have been held between Robert A.

Garabrandt, 20, of Uhrichsville, who led police and sheriff deputies on an exciting chase Jan. 25 has been remanded to Lima State Hospital for mental examination. Garabrandt, identified as the Twin City “Masked Bandit,” brought in handcuffs into Common Pleas Court today, appeared indifferent as he pleaded guilty to the theft of an Army Springfield rifle and 3 counts of armed robbery on information filed by County Prosecutor Harlan Spies. When asked by Judge Raymond Rice, “Do you have an attorney?” Garabrandt replied: “What’s an attorney? Him?” pointing to Spies. After Rice explained that the defendant had a right to counsel, Garabrandt said, “I don’t want any. I just want to get this all over with.” Clad in a light, dirty jacket and jeans, Garabrandt stared listlessly around the courtroom as the judge read the various charges brought against him. To each charge, when questioned by Rice, he laconically said, “guilty.” The information filed by Spies and read by Judge Rice included charges of stealing the rifle from Tex’s Alamo Arms Shop, and stealing $382 on Sept. 22, 1963 from Gene Maurer, $46 on Dec. 2 from Forrest Martin and $40 from George Heston on Jan. 20. The theft charge involves a I to 15 year prison term and each armed robbery charge, IO to 25 years. Spies entered an oral motion in court i equesting that the defendant, according to an option allowed by law, be sent to the state hospital. A hearing will take place after a written report, containing suggestions by those making the mental examinations of the youth, is received by the court. Are Teenagers Growing    Up Too Fast?

Patrol Investigation Slated In Traffic Arrest Incident 4 Part Series Starts Tuesday Ona of the most important local stories to be written this year was movingly authored by Reporter City Editor, James Davis, and backed up by months of resoarch.    / EVERY PARENT SHOULD CONSIDER THIS A “MUST READ" SERIES! A State Patrol investigation will be launched into an arrest made Sunday which resulted in a mother and child sitting in a car along the highway for nearly 2*2 hours until bond wras posted for her husband. Slated to appear in Southern County Court on Thursday is William Green. 26, of RD I, Newcomerstown, (Tunnel Hill) who is charged with having no muffler on his car. He was arrested by Patrolman C. W. Hawkeye on Route 36, south of Uhrichsville, at approximately 2 p.m. and was issued a citation and told to appear in court. According to Hawkeye, Green reportedly said: “You’ll have to come after me.” Bartolas Files New Appeal In Tavern Closing Byron Bartolas, operator of Barney’s Tavern in New Philadelphia. has filed notice of appeal to the 5th District Court against both the Nov. 18 judgment and Jan. 2 order of Common Pleas Judge J. H. Lam-neck. The appeal permits Bartolas to keep open his tavern in the face of a 100-day suspension ordered last Aug. 27 by the Ohio Liquor Control Commission. The Commission’s suspension was based on finding that Bartolas had sold beer to a 16-year-old girl last April 18. The bartender carried his case to Common Pleas Court, but on Nov. 18, Lamneck upheld the commissioner’s order. The judge further overruled a motion for a new trial in the matter on Jan. 2. Hawkeye then took Green to Uhrichsville police station to post a bond of $50, the maximum for the charge. The usual bond in such a case is $15. Green produced an outdated American Automobile Club card. After being told it was not valid, Green then said he would write a personal check for the bond. Checks, according to the patrol, are not acceptable by county courts. Hawkeye then took Green to the County Jail in New Philadelphia. Green called a relative, who drove to New Philadelphia and posted the appearance bond. All of that time, Green’s wife and 6-year-old son were in the parked car. Green said that he mentioned his “abandoned” family and that Patrolman Hawkeye replied: “They are not my responsibility” Green reportedly lodged a complaint at the patrol office and The Daily Reporter received several calls from acquaintances of Green concerning the case. The case will either be investigated by Sgt. W. R. Davis, who is in charge of the New Philadelphia Post, or an official from the district headquarters in Cambridge. swer after ringing the telephone on several occasions. The elder Herbert had planned to attend a monthly card club Sunday night. John W. Stevenson of 127 16th St., New Philadelphia, had stopped for Herbert at approximately 6:30 p.m., but left when no one answered the door. Several other players, who also became concerned when the man failed to show up, stopped by the residence while New Philadelphia police and authorities were investigating the tragedy. One of the men, John Bose of Dundee, said Herbert and his late wife used to attend the husband and wife games, but Herbert kept playing after her death. “Al never said much,” one of them noted. “He was real quiet.” According to neighbors the father and son had always gotten along except for the occasions generally attributed to a “teenager growing up.” It was learned this morning that the elder Herbert had made appointment with a doctor this week to examine a “lump” he had on his leg. Herbert allegedly told a friend that he feared “he had cancer.” Atty. Dick Stephenson, who has been handling the will proceedings for Herbert’s late wife, said he just talked with the man Saturday morning in Aberth’s Bakery. “He was talking about Friday’s basketball game,” Stephenson commented.

He added, however, he felt he would not file a charge, at least for the time being. According to Fire Chief Clarence Shilling, the girl was talking to a friend on a 4-party line when David Ball, 14, son of Mr, and Mrs. Byron Ball of 124 Hemlock St. spotted the blaze and tried to call firemen. The youth told Shilling that the 2 girls told him “Go spit on it” when he asked them to clear the line so he could report the fire.
