As the lunar landing of Apollo 11 transcends another of man’s dreams, most of the area’s denizens of the workaday world will see it pass while on the job.

City, state and federal employees will be off in respect to President Nixon’s request for a national day of participation, but most workers in non-governmental jobs will witness the spectacle while putting in an eight-hour day.

For persons who had appointments to do official business with state offices on Monday, the appointments have been cancelled until Tuesday. Governor Raymond P. Shafer was one of the first governors to announce that state offices would be closed in response to the President’s request.

Banks will be open for business Monday, reported Greater Williamsport Chamber of Commerce officials and so will almost all industrial plants.

Other closures for the day include the Lycoming County Board of Assistance, James V. Brown Library, Newberry branch, office of Congressman Herman T. Schneebli and the Williamsport Post Office.

Summer school in Williamsport and Loyalsock Township have been suspended, as well as Head Start classes in the county.

Millions of television viewers late tonight or early Monday morning, will see Neil Armstrong become the first man to set foot on the moon.

The flight of Apollo 11 has attracted America’s soaring spirit into its wake and has produced a common interest for one and all. The mission that will bring two Americana to the surface of the moon early Monday has Williamsport residents glowing with enthusiasm.
