moon's stark


SPACE CENTER, Houston tA --Spectacular
color pictures taken by men on the moon
were released yesterday by the space agency
and vividly show why the Apollo 11 astro-
nauts called the lunar terrain "magnificent
desolation" with "a stark beauty all its own."
In photos taken on the surface itself, vivid
gold, white and black colors of the ungainly
moon ship clearly stand out, as do the astro-
nauts, experiments and flag they left behind.
The pictures show an eerie, unreal world
with a coal-black sky and rugged gray ter-
rain that turns almost white like snow where
the sun reflects off it.
In one photo snapped by Armstrong with a
70mm Hasselblad, the American flag, the tele-
vision camera standing on its silver mount,
experiments deployed on the moon, and 'Eagle
landing craft can all be seen reflected off
Aldrin's golden visor.
It is a world of contrasts. with sharp,
dark shadows. Tiny craters and rocks of vari-
ous size are scattered over th'e terrain.
Space agency officials described the pic-
tures as "extremely good" for their purposes

Mansfield, with the backing ofI

.Committee, had refused until now
- to call up the surtax measure un-
til it was coupled with a tax re-
form bill. He contended that the
steam for tax reform would evap-
orate if the two issues were hand-
;.led separately.
When he finally agreed Wed-
nesday night to call up the sur-
tax, it was with the understanding
that the Senate Finance Commit-
Mike Mansfield Ev Dirksen tee will produce a tax reform bill
by Oct. 31. The House now is
working on such a measure.

bill to the House, which voted

In a long-awaited decision, the State Court of Appeals
yesterday ruled the University must bargain collectively with
its non-academic, non-clerical employes.
*Turning aside arguments by University legal counsel that
the Regents cannot be restricted by state legislation, the court
ruled the University must bargain collectively u n d e r the
terms of Public Act 379 of 1965, the state Public Employes Act.
A university governing board "cannot use its constitu-
tional powers to thwart the public policy of the state," the
court ruled, upholding the 1967 decision of Washtenaw Cir-
cuit Court Judge William Ager, Jr.
