THE U.S. ROCKETED its Mariner 9 spacecraft into orbit
around Mars yesterday, beginning an unprecedented study of the
Red Planet that could write a new chapter in the annals of
space exploration.
The first spacecraft to orbit another planet in the solar system,
Mariner 9 apparently arrived at Mars ahead of two Russian space
probes, Mars 2 and 3, which Western scientists speculate will attempt
unmanned landings.
The spacecraft ended its 5%V -month, quarter-billion-mile journey
at 7:17 p.m. EST when a 15-minute burn of the Mariner 9 retro-
rocket slowed an 11,000 mile-per-hour plunge so Martian gravity
could swing it into orbit.
Packed with scientific instruments - two television cameras, an
infrared radiometerand an ultraviolet andhinfrared spectrometer-
Mariner 9 could give man- the closest look he's ever had at another
planet.
The spacecraft was designed for a basic 90-day mission but could
send back data from its twice-daily orbit around Mars for up to a
Iyear.
ARAB FOREIGN MINISTERS gathered in Cairo yesterday to
chart a common Egyptian-led strategy for the planned U.N. de-
hate on their quarrel with Israel.
Sources said Egypt was pushing hard to get the Arab states to
concert their policies in advance to present the united anti-Israeli
front that has so often eluded Arab leaders in the past. .
Their discussions began as the French Foreign Ministry an-
nounced in Paris that France will buy back 50 Mirage warplanes pur-
chased by Israel before 1967 but withheld under the French Middle{
East arms embargo.
CUBAN PRIME MINISTER FIDEL CASTRO visited the Ata-
cama Desert yesterday, one of the driest places in the world, dur-
ing a state visit to Chile at the invitation of his old friend Presi-
dent Salvador Allende.
The rich nitrate fields in the Atacama, where less than two
inches of rain fall each year, made Chile one of the richest coun-
tries in the world during the early part of this century.
But when chemicals were discovered to take the place of nitrate
in fertilizers and explosives, the country was plunged into a depres-
sion. Scores of sand-swept ghost towns along Castro's route at-
tested to the once-thriving region.
AUBRAN "BUDDY" MARTIN was sentenced to death yester-
day for the slayings of United Mine Workers rebel Joseph "Jock"
Yablonski and his wife and daughter.
The verdict was returned in a hushed Washington County court-
room by the same jury of seven women and five men that less
than 24 hours earlier had convicted Martin on three counts of
first degree murder in the killings.
. *
THE INDEPENDENT UNITED MINE WORKERS and the
Bituminous Coal Operators Association agreed yesterday on "a c
set of agreed sections and articles" that some called a tentative
pact to end a 44-day coal strike.,
The terms were not immediately divulged, but the agreement
was rushed to labor and management groups in New York's Biltmore
Hotel for ratification. The strike idled 100,000 miners in 20 states.c
The union had sought a wage boost of $13 from a base of $37 a day.t

NIX ON DENOUNCED:a
SVets attack U.S.
withdrawal proposal

By STERLING GREEN
Associated Press Writer
As Phase 2 of President Nixon's new economic policy be-
gins today, administration officials claim it has been suc-
cessful in halting runaway inflation and the rising cost of
living.
Despite expectations that Phase 2 will continue to work,
administration officials concede that the risks of failure are
great. In addition, other aspects of the President's plan are
stalled.
The 90-day wage, price and rent ceiling that President
Nixon clamped on the economy Aug 15 had its leaks, viola-
tions and disappointments.
But is gave the United States
its iirst respite in five years from":
relentless, inflation that ate into
paychecks, eroded pensions and
scuttled family budgets.
Tefreeze period, endind,.edng at:>".
12:01 a.m. today, slowed the rise
in living costs to a rate of 2.4 per
cent a year in September- far
from perfect, but less than half.
the rate of any recent year. And it
pushed the wholesale price index
into its biggest drop in five years. >.:....><}:<
Now there are two dangers: :;;.:"- :t:{><>.
First, that compliance will sag if
many people take the new 2.5 per

a sign that the anti-inflation fg t i ,bi g rl xd e o d

that the AFL-CIO, angry over
wage guidelines that deny the Secretary Connally
retroactive payment of frozen
wage increases, will decide at Miami Beach this week whether to
boycott the program.
So the freeze ends, at its death the only segment of the Presi-
dent's new economic program that was on target.
"Prosperity without war requires action on three fronts," Nixon
told the nation as he announced the freeze by television on that
Sunday night in mid-August.
"We must create more and better jobs; we must stop the rise
in the cost of living; we must protect the dollar from the attacks of
international money speculators.'
What of his hopes for more jobs and stronger dollars? The 90-
day record shows that:

"A powerful theatrical per-
formance depicting d a n c e
characters and images which
have grown out of the Afro-
American experience."

0 The economy did not respond with the hoped-for zest to the
promise of price stabilization. September statistics ranged from
gloomy to dismal. October brought moderately better news, with re-
tail sales up and unemployment edging down to 5.8 per cent. But that
was not good enough to halt the steady sinking of the stock market.
" Congress was still arguing over Nixon's business-stimulating
tax-relief plans. It seemed ready to vote at least $1.3 billion more tax
relief for low-income families than he asked for but delayed the pro-
posed job development investment credit.
O Therefore many corporations postpone? their job-creating
capital outlays waiting for the credit to go on the law books. It
amounts to a 7 per cent federal subsidy on their purchases of new
machinery and equipment.
0 The Nixon foreign economic game plan seemed to be at a
stalemate. His actions had unhitched the dollar from gold and left
all the Western currencies "floating" without fixed par values; and
he had slapped a 10 per cent U.S. tariff surcharge on all dutiable
imports.
Then he invited other countries to raise the value of their cur-
rencies an average of perhaps 12 per cent, to make U.S. goods cheaper
