LovellShedsDe Gaulle Facing Rough Battle

By The Associated Press
PARIS-Charles de Gaulle faces
a tough political test in the presi-
dential runoff if he is to win with
a telling majority.
An analysis of the results of
Sunday's presidential election;
which turned out to be a primary,
indicates de Gaulle will be lucky
to win 52 or 53 per cent of the
votes in the runoff Dec. 19. He
will face leftist Francois Mitter-
rand, the runnerup Sunday.
To make a good showing, de
Gaulle must take a big share of
the 3% million votes that went
to the third man, Jean Lecanuet.
In the first round of balloting,

de Gaulle had to settle for 44.61
per cent of the popular vote, a
letdown from the polling in 19621
which gave him 62.8 per cent.
Mitterrand got 31.72 per cent
and has a good chance of col-
lecting many of the votes scat-
tered among four also rans, who
won't be in the runoff.
The analysis of Sunday's vote
raised the question whether de
Gaulle would risk damaging his
pride by failing in the second
round to win with a sizable ma-

But he delayed until Wednesday

Russia Fails Try for
Soft Moon Landing

MOSCOW (A)-The Soviet Un-
ion admitted yesterday that it
again had failed to put an un-
manned space vehicle on the moon
via a soft landing.
The official Soviet news agency
Tass reported - that the attempt
at man's first such landing mal-
functioned in its final stage.
The Tass announcement said all
other stages of the spaceship had
worked flawlessly.
Time of the crash on the lunar'
surface was given as 12:51:30 a.m.,'
Moscow time. The Jodrell Bank
Observatory in England heard the'

Negro riots were "an explosion-a
formless, quite senseless, all but
hopeless violent protest."
The commission added in a
widely awaited 101-page report:
"So serious is the situation that,
unless it is checked, the August
riots may seem by comparison to
be only a curtain raiser for what
could blow up one day in the
future "
The report, 100 days in the mak-
ing at a cost of $25,000, recom-
mended "expensive and burden-
some" programs to prevent a rep-
etition of the six days' terror that
left 34 persons dead and $40 mil-

Tass implied that the flight had
had made a positive contribution
to its program to achieve a soft
landing on the moon-a feat that
would bring a man-on-the-moon
space project closer to reality.
"As a result of the flight of the
station Luna 8, a further step
was made toward the realization
of soft landing," Tass said in its
brief dispatch.
Before the announcement, Jod-
rell Bank had reported "some evi-
dence of a near success of a soft
The spaceship was launched 31
days ago.
The press here has played up
the importance of the flight.
Pravda, the Communist party or-
gan, said a soft landing would,
have "important practical signi-
ficance in the preparation for
interplanetary flights." Izvestia,
the government paper, called it a
"key step" and said that once
man lands on the moon he can
move on from there to explore
Mars, Jupiter and Venus.
Luna 8 is the fourth Soviet
attempt this year to make a soft
landing on the moon.
The United States, committed to
landing a man on the moon by
1970, has plans for the soft land-
ing of instruments but has not
yet begun launchings.
Two earlier Luna flights this
year crashed on landing. A third
missed the moon.
The Soviet Union started its
attempts at a moon landing al-
most seven years ago. Luna 1
missed the moon Jan. 4, 1959,
and went into orbit. Luna 2, sent
up the following fall, crashed but
became the first manmade object
to reach the moon. Luna 3, shortly
afterward, took fuzzy pictures of
the back side of the moon, never
. seen from the earth.

But McNamara, announcing his
order at a news conference, said
the bases are "surplus to our
needs" and the cutbacks "will be
completed without decreasing mil-
itary effectiveness or limiting our
current and future activities."
Few Closings
He indicated outright closings
will come to only a minority of
the installations affected. Most
of them will be reduced in size
or consolidated.
Some of McNamara's words
were almost a reply of his an-
nouncement in November last year
closing down 95 .bases. Money will
be saved-$410 million a year un-
der the new order-the strain on
military manpower will be eased
and the civilian workers affected
will be offered other government
jobs, McNamara said.
The secretary, anticipating
some loud protests from members
of Congress and communities in-
volved, said, "It is painful to elim-
inate these bases no longer needed
for military reasons, but it must
be done."
$1.5 Billion Saved
The 149 bases added to 703
previous base closings and cut-
downs ordered since March 1961,
McNamara said, will bring total
savings to $1.5 billion a year.
McNamara said 53,000 jobs will
be eliminated, mostly uniformed
positions, but he did not have a
precise breakdown. Involved also
are shifts of 29,000.
The delay in identifying the
bases in this country is the same
procedure as last year to allow
time for notifying members of
Congress whose areas are involv-
ed. McNamara said the bases are
in 39 states, the District of Colum-
bia and 10 foreign countries.
No Political Significance
The 23 foreign bases, which will
account for $93 million of the
annual savings, will not be iden-
tified until after discussions with
the nations involved. But McNa-
mara said no political significance
is attached to any of these clos-
ings and they will not affect
United States troop dispositions.
His department, McNamara said,
will file reports on the closings
on Jan. 10 with the Senate and
House Armed Services Commit-
tees, as required by law for all
bases at which more than 250
persons are employed or stationed.
The requirement is a watered-
down result of efforts by Congress
this year to exercise more control
over Pentagon base-closing ac-
tions. President Johnson had ve-
toed a 120-day delay voted by
McNamara said he is acting
not only under Johnson's general
instruction to economize but also
under a new and more specific
order given to all cabinet officers
in connection with next year's
