prof to study moon dust

HOUSTON - W h e n astro-
nauts Neil Armstrong and Ed-
win Aldrin step onto the sur-
face of the moon early Monday
morning, most people huddled
arount TV sets on earth won't
be able to do much except mar-
vel at the feat and cheer them
But a few people will be
watching much m o r e closely.
They'll be ready to field ques-
tions from the astronauts them-
selves, and also w ill suggest
what the astronauts do w i t h
their time on the moon.
Among those select few will
be geology professor Edwin N.,
Prof. Goddard is a member of
the Geology Experiments Team
of NASA's Lunar Exploration
Program, a group he joined five
years ago. The team planned
most of the experiments t h e
astronauts will perform and
helped design much of the

equipment they'll use.
Monday morning, Prof. God-
dard and the other team mem-
bers will be sitting with experts
from the U.S. Geological Sur-
vey's astro-geology branch in an
isolated communications room
at Houston's Manned Space-
flight Center.
At the center they'll be ready
to suggest which rocks the as-
tronauts pick up, and what they
should do if time runs short and
they can't finish all their pro-
Suggestions by the geology
team will filter through capsule
communicator Charles Duke,
who will also receive comments
from medical and engineering
teams monitoring the astro-
nauts and their equipment.
Duke relays all messages to the
On the moon, the astronauts
will carry out a two-part series
of experiments. First they'll set

up three scientific instruments.
There will be a solar wind ex-
periment to capture and meas-
ure tiny particles thrown into
space by the sun. The astro-
nauts will also position a "pas-
sive seismometer" to measure
lunar quakes, and a laser reflec-
tor which will allowearthbound
scientists to measure the dis-
tance between the earth a n d
moon to within six inches.
With the equipment in place,
the astronauts can begin t h e
second phase of experiments,
collecting moon samples for an-
alysis on earth. The Geology Ex-
periments Team planned this
part of the moon walk.
In their bulky s u i t s, Arm-
strong and Aldrin won't be able
to bend over, so they'll collect
samples using special tongs and
scoops on long poles.
If they have time, the astro-
nauts will perform a "geological

traverse." They will make ster-
eo photographs of prominent
rock formations, then take sam-
ples of the area.
Back on earth, the Geology
Experiments Team will study
these photos along with others
taken of the samples brought
back. To protect against con-
tamination by possible moon
germs, the samples themselves
will be kept in an isolated vac-
uum for about '50 days.
Prof. Goddard and his col-
leagues will spend that t i m e
making an exclusive report on
the samples, describing where
they came from and how they
fitted into the lunar terrain.
Then, when the quarantine on
the moon rocks is o v e r, the
team's report w il l accompany
the 142 tiny samples to be sent
to various laboratories through-
out the world for testing.

of funds can only be tapped once.
The University has, in the past,

fiscal year, but before passage of
the state appropriation. This year
the funds will be spent during the

voted against the voluntary fund-
ing plan proposed by the admin-
Regents Otis Smith, Robert
Nederlander and Dunn empha-
sized the legislative problems in-
volved in the $1.75 fee assessment,
but said they would support the
voluntary funding plan.
After the SGC proposal was de-

A two-day sit-in has been calledj
for this week by an ad hoc local
group to protest the unavailability
of marijuana in Ann Arbor and to
call for legalization.
The demonstration is scheduled
for both Saturday and Sunday at
noon. The sit-in will be held in
the area in front of Mark's Coffee
House, on East William St. be-
tween Thompson and State.
The sit-in was called for by an
impromptu group. Members say
that demonstrators will sit on the
sidewalk on East William, but will
make no attempt to block the
Members of the group also say
they are unable to estimate how
many persons would join in the
demonstration, but said that they
personally had been distributing
literature calling fqr the sit-in.
"The situation is ridiculous,"
explained one of the originators
of the sit-in. "There is just no potj

kinds of other. drugs and really
messing up their minds."

up by the executive officers.
The president agreed with the
Regents on the question of leg-
islative reaction to the fee assess-
Fleming agreed with SGC that
space could be provided in the
Union or the Student Activities
Bldg. for the bookstore.
"At worst it will fail because it
cannot compete with private book-
stores or because the Legislature
removes the sales tax exemption,"
Fleming said. "At best it will be
successful in offering modest sav-
ings to students."
a"In either event it will recognize
adeep interest which they stu-
dents have, and it will provide a
genuine educational experience for
those who are involved," he said.
Dunn then proposed that SGC
be consulted on the plan and
agreed that the Regents should
order creation of the bookstore if
the needed capital were collected.
Regent Robert Brown spoke
against the Dunn resolution. "If

the University opens a bookstore
and gives us direction and control
as in the administration proposal,
it can't fail," Brown said. "But it's
not going to satisfy desires of stu-
dents to make discounts."
Regents Dunn, Nederlander,
Smith and Gertrude Huebner voted
in favor of the Dunn resolution.
Regents Lindemer, Brown, Paul
Goebel and Richard Cudlip voted
against the proposal.
After the meeting Lindemer ex-
plained that he had decided to
vote against the resolution at the
last minute. He said he was afraid
that if sufficient funds were not
collected, those who had already
contributed would not be. reim-

SALVADORAN TROOPS thrust on into Honduran territory
yesterday when another cease-fire collapsed.
The Salvadoran troops moved farther into Honduras after taking
the provincial capital of Nueva Ocotepeque. Although the Organization
of American States came up with a four-point peace plan in Wash-
ington yesterday, Salvadoran President Fidel Sanchez Hernandez said
he will not withdraw his troops from Honduras until he has firm
guarantees for the safety of Salvadorans living there.
The OAS plan called for a cease-fire at 10 p.m. Central American
time and for mutual troop withdrawals over the next four days.

THE FIVE-MONTH OLD hospital strike in Charleston, S.C.
was settled yesterday.
Black nonprofessional workers agreed to return to work at Char-
leston County Hospital after an agreement was reached on rehiring of
the striking workers. Forty-two will return to their jobs immediately
and the remaining 23 will be re-emnployed within three months if
possible, and contingent with openings that had been filled by replace-
ments during the strike.
The workers, members of local 1199-B of the hospital and Nursing
Home Workers, AFL-CIO, had sought recognition of their union,
higher wages and revision or grievances procedures.

PRESIDENT NIXON yesterday told Congress that within
five years he wants to make available free birth control advice to
American women of child-bearing age with low incomes.
The president estimated that nearly five million U.S. women "do
not now have adequate access to family planning assistance." He
proposed an expansion and recorganization of federal family planning
services but gave no estimate of the increased spending.
However Secretary of Health, Education and Welfare Robert
Finch said to expand family planning services an initial $30 million
would be needed plus an additional $30 million for at least five years.
Nixon also asked Congress yesterday to create a Commission'on
Population Growth and the American Future to study the entire pop-
ulation problem.
SENATE MAJORITY LEADER Mike Mansfield yesterday told
colleagues that "many weeks" of debate are in store if an attempt
is made to bring the income surtax bill before the Senate.
Although any senator could move to bring the bill, approved
Thursday by a 9-8 vote of the Senate Finance Committee, before the
Senate, Mansfield said it would be "fully debatable" and loaded down
with "Christmas tree" amendments.
Mansfield has been pushing for tax reforms as a prerequisite to
extending the surcharge. He said yesterday the issue of what to do
about the bill will go before the Democratic policy committee Tuesday.
Senate Republican Leader Everett Dirksen said there will be no
move to bring up the bill until after the Tuesday meeting.
SEN. STUART SYMINGTON (D-Mo) yesterday withdrew
his request for a second secret Senate session on the Safeguard
Toward the end of Thursday's 53/4 hour closed session, Syming-
ton had announced he would seek a second secret meeting within 10
days. But yesterday the senator said he could see "no reason for
another closed session on the ABM."
Senate Majority Leader Mike Mansfield (D-Mon) said first votes
on the issue may be either July 29 or 30. The vote would be on an
amendment sponsored by Senators John Cooper (R-Ky) and Robert
Griffin (R-Mich) which would limit the ABM to research, barring
deployment or site acquisition.

SEN. JOHN McCLELLAN (D-Ark.) said yesterday he plans to
ask Congress to crack down on college rioters with a new law
which could authorize imprisoning disruptive students.
McClellan who has held several weeks of hearings on campus
disruptions said he would introduce his measure very soon.
One of the Senator's aides said the measure would make it a
federal crime, punishable by prison sentence or fine, to disrupt opera-
tions of any college receiving federal financial help. Hwever, Mc-
Clellan pointed out his proposal would not cut off federal funds to
rioters or colleges, like other bills before Congress.

THE SOUTH END, Wayne State University's controversial
student newspaper, will resume publication under new guidelines
set by the university's newly created Newspaper Publication
Summer Editor Cheryl McCall and the paper's staff have agreed
to follow the guidelines, John Grant, news editor, said yesterday.
WSU President William R. Keast had suspended the publication
of the South End July 11 only hours before a special edition was to
be run off because, he said, "the paper would do serious damage to
Wayne State University and the future of student journalism here."
Keast apparently objected to the use of obscenity and radical
articles in the paper. The exact date of publicaton of the' diciplined
paper has not been set.
