Apollo crew
(Continued from Page 1)
Soyuz and Apollo spaceships is
of historic significance as a
symbol of the current progress
of easing of international ten-
sion and improvement of Soviet-
U.S. relations on- the basis of the
principles of peaceful coexist-
ence."
The splashdown ends forever
the use of the Apollo spacecraft
system which first carried man
to the moon. It also concludes
the last American space mission
for at least four years. The next
astronaut to go into. space will
be at the controls of the Space
Shuttle, a reusable ship resem-
bling an airplane that will first
fly in 1979.
STAFFORD, S l a y t o n and
Brand linked their Apollo craft
with a Soviet Soyuz spacecraft
and worked in space for two
days with Russian Cosmonauts
Alexei Leonov and Valeri Ku-
basov.
It was the first meeting in

ands safely-
orbit of mankind's two space-
faring nations and may open an
age of cooperation in space.
Apollo also returns to earth
with new treasures of science.
Using instruments and cameras,
astronauts probed stars in dis-
tant corners of the universe and
photographed earth's features.
AMERICA'S Apollo.era estab-
lished for man a new age of
exploration. In 14 manned fis-
sions, the Apollo spaceship six
times carried men to the moon,
ferried them to a space station
for weeks of scientific work and
formed a bridge of space co-
operation with the Soviets.
Since the 1968 launch of the
first manned Apollo, the space-
ship supported man in space for
v o y a g e s totaling 92 million
miles, almost the distance from
earth to the sun. The Apollo
was the command ship for more
than 20,000 man hours in space.
The final Apollo mission tra-
veled an estimated 3.5 million
statute miles in orbit of the
earth.

Birth control courses favored

(Continued from Page 3)
Several Board members were
also concerned with the "mor-
ality" involved and were wor-
ried about giving the impres-
sion that the school system was
encouraging sexual activity.
While admitting they felt it ap-
propriate to teach birth control
to students, many were careful
to emphasize that this support
did not necessarily mean they
personally advocated its use.
"You want a teacher who is
sensitive to the issue and who
deals with it in a factual way."
HOWEVER, Warner later add-
ed that he felt there must be
some moral overtones in the
presentation of birth control.
"You've got to think about
more ihings than telling the
kids, "OK gang, get the pill, the
sky's the limit," Warner said.
Despite their enthusiasm for
providing birth control infor-
mation in the schools, several
members said that many stu-
dents get the information from
other sources.

"IT'S A CRAZY position to
be in - not to be able to teach
it when the information is so
accessible anyway," said Tanya
Israel.
However, Mary Krell of the
local chapter of Planned Par-
enthood said that the majority
of students would. not be getting
the information unless they got
it in the schools.
She claims that Planned
Parenthood's Teen Clinic has
been providing that sort of edu-
cation for years "but only in
classrooms where they're will-
in$ to take the risk (of per-
mitting the teaching of birth
control." "The most important
people here are the students,"
Krell added.
SHE ALSO said that there
are many groups in town who
could train teachers to teach
birth control, to insure that the
students would be provided with
accurate and complete infor-
mation.
Terry Martin, the Board
member who was least favor-

able towards the measure, said
that if students are anxious to
learn about birth control, they
could be taught on a special
basis, but it should not be a
regular part of the class.
Though the bill suffered a de-
feat Tuesday, another vote is
scheduled for next Tuesday.
Bursley is working on several
amendments which he hopes
will muster more support for
the proposal.
AS THE BILL presently
states, the state would pro-
vide the guidelines for the
birth control instruction, but he
says he will change that clause
to allow the local school boards
to set guidelines and to call on
the state only as an option.
According to Bursley, much
of the opposition is created by
"o 1 d fundamentalist groups
who think it's 'evil'."
It's hangover from the
abortion question," the sena-
tor said. "The legislators look
at that and worry about how
their constituents feel"
GOP blasts
strike bill
LANSING (UPI) - The House
Republican caucus officially
went on record yesterday as op-
posing the Senate-passed version
of veto-destined legislation to
legalize teacher strikes.
"As the bill now stands, par-
ents, s o h o o administrators,
school boards and even many
teachers are dissatisfied with
its provisions," said House GOP
Leader Dennis Cawthorne of
Manistee.
"EVEN SO, legislative Demo-
crats persist in their efforts to
cram this bill down the public
throat."
Majority Democrats in the
House were expected to caucus
later today to assess support for
the bill as passed by the Senate
Tuesday.
Gov. William Milliken has re-
affirmed his intention to veto
the bill unless it is drastically
changed in conference commit-
tee before summer recess next
week - an eventuality consider-
ed highly unlikely.
As passed by the Senate, the
legislation would legalize teach-
er strikes of up to four weeks,
two with pay. The House version
would have permitted strikes of
up to five weeks, three with pay.
