Sharp Attack

MOSCOW (IP)-The Soviet Un-

Communist China's "cultural rev-

'tragedy for the Chinese people"
and accused Peking of warring on
all Communist nations in the
world who reject its line.

Ford Motor
To Increase
Cost of Cars
DETROIT (P) - Ford Motor Co.
said yesterday its 1967 cars will
carry higher price tags, with new
safety features accounting for
much of the hike.
The Ford price boost averaged
$25 or about one percent, the
company said.
General Motors, Chrysler and
American Motors were expected
to fall in line soon with similar
The Ford price announcement
was a complicated one. The com-
pany made some items, optional
on last year's cars, standard this
time. To add to the confusion,
some of 1966 standard items were
made optional in 1967.
That made it a bit complicated
for the average buyer to figure out
the exact price of his new car, but
it appeared he would dig deeper
into his pocket this time for a
comparable car.
Ford said the price hikes "are
not sufficient to recover the con-
tinuing labor and material cost
increase it has been experiencing."
There was noimmediate com-
ment from the United Auto Work-
ers Union president Walter P. Reu-
ther who had expressed belief that
the industry should be able to
absorb virtually all the cost of its
added safety items without rais-
ing consumer prices.
The biggest increase in the Ford
line came in its Mercury Park
Lane four-door and two-door
hardtops where the ante was rais-
ed $365.37 per car.
From a consumer standpoint, it
was a $365 increase because his
new car came equipped with an
automatic transmission as stand-
ard equipment and he no longer
had the choice of buying a stick
From the company standpoint,
it was not a price increase because
the car had $365 more worth of
equipment on it.
Despite the over-all increases,
Ford did not concede that the au-
to price line, which the industry
contends it has held since 1957,
had been broken.
The report said: "For the eighth
consecutive year, Ford Motor Co.

The UN General Assembly opened
its 21st session yesterday on a
note of harmony by electing an
Asian diplomat as president. But
its attention was centered almost
immediately on the war in Viet
Nam, thusdpresaging days of
trouble ahead.
Ambassador Abdul Rahmanj
Pazhwak of Afghanistan, a veter-
an in the halls of the United Na-
tions, was elected as president un-
til the next assembly session.
Pazhwak, 47, was unopposed. He
played a leading role in helping
break the big debate over UN
peacekeeping debts that paralyzed
the 19th session.

He declared that "We cannot
help fervently hoping that, before
we conclude our work, clear signs
of peace may appear on the hori-
zon, paving the way to the long-
awaited start of constructive ne-
gotiations for a solution honor-
able for all."
Viet Nam is expected .toodomi-'
nate the 21st session, even though
it is not formally on the agenda.
Pazhwak, in his acceptance
speech, did not refer to Viet Nam ,
by name, but he referred to clouds
caused by war that would hang
over "any gathering of nations
concerned with the peace and se-
curity of the world."

those issues was concern over es-

no comment.

foreign minister, was present as

delegates to be pessimistic for any
progress toward the spread of nu-
clear weapons, .the financing of
UN peace-keeping operations and
a host of other international prob-
lems on the assembly's agenda.
A U.S. spokesman took issue
with what he called the "gloom
and doom talk all over the place."
The United States was encour-
aged by the statement of U Thant
Monday expressing willingness to
serve as secretary-general until
the end of the year if a successor
is not found when his term ex-
pires Nov. 3.
In the U.S. view, this took the
heat off the issue of agreeing on a
successor, at least, temporarily.

PASADENA, Calif. ()---Survey-
or 2 raced through the heavens
yesterday on a path that should
cause it to gently hit the moon
right on target.
The camera-carrying spacecraft,
on a mission to scout a landing
site for astronauts, blasted off
beautifully from Cape Kennedy,
Fla., at 8:32 a.m. EDT-the last
possible second for a launch. It
soared into a near-perfect course.
Scientists at Pasadena's Jet
Propulsion Laboratory, controlling
the flight, expressed hope that its
63-hour flight will be as specta-
cularly successful as that of Sur-
veyor 1.
The first Surveyor, overcoming
long-shot odds against a first
flight success, made history's first
soft landing on the moon and
then radioed earthward 11,237

The odds against Surveyor 2 are
even longer. It is programmed for
a trickier descent, at a 23-degree
slant; instead of vertically. And
the terrain in the target area is
Surveyor 2's landing site is Sin-
us Medii on Central Bay, a plain
in almost the exact center of the
moon as seen from earth-speck-
led with craters and ringed by
what appear to be jagged hills.
There is a chance it could land on
a slope or a boulder and topple.
If it brakes to a safe landing,
Surveyor's camera'eye is set to re-
volve around the landscape and
show experts on earth just how
rough and stable the surface is.
The site is one of nine potential
landing spots being considered for
Apollo astronauts before the end
of this decade. Surveyor 1 touched
down last June 800 miles west and
slightly south in the Sea of Storms.
Others in the seven-shot Surveyor
series will check other areas.
The launch came close to being
postponed. A valve controlling li-
quid oxygen prevented pressuriza-

tion of a tank aboard the Atlas-
Centaur booster.
The launch could only taket
place during a 36-minute period.
But the trouble was fixed and
with only seven-tenths of a minute
to spare, the towering rocket rum-
bled aloft. A minute later, ampli-
fying the suspense, the blockhouse
lost power. But the delay lasted
only a moment and did not affect
the flight.
Within an hour after launch
Surveyor 2 aimed its solar panel
at the sun to absorb energy which
is converted to electrical power.
About six hours after launch a
delicate sensor locked on the bright
star Canopus and was used as a
reference point to guide the flight.

igned to place the craft precisely.
