Apollo 17's lunar craft Challenger touched down in a rugged box canyon for the start, of a three-day search for knowledge. Astronauts Eugene A. Cer- nan, a Navy pilot on his third space flight, and Harrison H. Schmitt, the first American scientist in space, guided Chal- lenger over lunar mountains and down to the crater-pocked floor of the canyon called Taurus-Littrow. Exclaimed Cernan on touchdown: "Challenger has landed... We is Cernan and Schmitt will spend To hours on the moon, make three excursions in an electric car and collect about 200 pounds of rocks. Apollo 17's third crewman. Honald E. Evans, remained aboard the command ship, America. Preparations for the landing went smoothly, with America and Challenger undocking and separating as planned. Evans threw switches in mi- dock the moon landing craft and Challenger sprang free. Cernan and Schmitt began final preparations fora dive to a lunar touchdown at p.m. EST and Evans started tin- three days of solo moon orbit- aboard America. Tlie astronauts awoke to music, piped to them from Mis- son Control, at a.m. EST after spending the nigh! orbit- ing 15 miles above the moon's barren surface. Cernan and Schmitt donned space suits and started trans- ferring equipment and supplies into Challenger. Evans will remain in lunar orbit aboard the command ship.

As the llth and 12lh lunar explorers, they will walk and drive more than '20 miles over the valley floor searching among rock and soil for secrets needed to complete the moon history already partially re- corded through live earlier American landings. America and Challenger, still locked nose-to-nose, swept he- hind the moon and out of touch with Mission Control at As in past moon flights. Mis- sion Control waited through the silence for word of a suc- cessful firing, this time for 22 minutes. Then the spacecraft shot from behind the moon; and, from a quarter million miles away, Cernaifs voice crackled into t he control center: "Thumbs up, America has arrived on station for the chal- lenge ahead."

(AP Wirephoto) Air Search Fails To Find _______________ Car of Murdered Coed Slaying Victim's 1' 1_ i f, and ARIZONA SENTINEI SUN 23rd Issue, 68th Year 10 Cents 16 Pages Yuma, Arizona, Mon. Dec. SENTINEL 230th Issue, 100th Year The light green 1969 Cougar owned by a young woman found slain near Yuma last week is one of the major clues being sought in the case, ac- cording to Sheriffs Sgt Jim Moore of the Winterhaven sub-station. The body later identified as that of Susan Elizabeth Schuler, 20, of Los Angeles, was found Monday 200 yards south of Interstate 8 on Ogilby Road, which is 17 miles west of Yuma. An autopsy showed she had been killed by a single .22-caliher bullet through the heart. There, were no other signs of violence or indications that she had been sexually as- saulted. "We're still looking for her car. but our chances for find- ing anyone in it have diminish- ed said Moore. "I went out Friday to search the entire area from the air to make sure the car hadn't been dumped here, and it hadn't." Miss Schuler's body was clad in a green sweater and a large orange beach towel wrapped around her body. A green skirt matching the one she was wearing at the time of her dis- appearance from Las Angeles, SUSAN SCHULER Slaying Victim a pair of shoes and personal papers belonging to her have been found in a trash basket at the Live Oak rest stop near Yucaipa. Two detective sergeants of the Los Angeles Sheriffs Of- fice, which is heading the in- vestigation, have said that they were still puzzled as to a motive for what appeared to have been a kidnap-tnurder. While auto theft was consid- ered as a possible motive, it. was noted that Miss Schuler was still wearing some valu- able rings when her body was found. Miss Schuler was apparently last seen alive Sunday, Dec. 3rd, when she left her parents' home in the fashionable Los Angeles suburb of Ladera Heights to return to her dor- mitory at the University of Southern California. She was majoring in education at USC and was reportedly a good stu- dent with an excellent reputa- tion. When her body was found early Monday afternoon by a passing motorist, it was esti- mated later that she had been dead for 12 to 14 hours. As to whether she may have spent some time in this area, Moore commented, "I don't think so. I think she was dead when she got here." Moore added that the Los Angeles investigators, aided by two Imperial County investi- gators from El Centre, have been trying to locate persons who might have seen her or particularly the car, but so far with no success. Arrested Here After Fatal Stabbing in Downtown Bar Nixon Seeks Extension Of Wage-Price Controls ByLORENLISTIAK The Yuma Daily Sun Curtis Preston Barley, 29, of Winterhaven was stabbed to death in the Turf Club, 285 Main Street, shortly after a.m. yesterday. City Po- lice said. Less than an hour later no- lice arrested his Stan- ley Barley, 32, 1207 1st Ave- nue, a half block away. He was charged with murder this morning by police. When arrested Stanley Bar- ley was wearing a blue jacket that had bloodstains on the right sleeve, police said. They added he was carrying a small pocket knife with a foreign substance visible near the hinge. Del. John Gross said the case is still under investigation and added he didn't know how the stabbing occurred. "We haven't even determined the motive he stated. Gross did say Curtis was stabbed three times in the chest by a knife. Curtis was dead on arrival at the Yuma Regional Medical Center. This is the second time in years that Stanley Barley has been arrested for murder. He was arrested on July 19, 1970 and charged in the shooting death of Chester Antone of Winterhaven. Antone was shot in the head twice with a .22 caliber rifle on July 7, 1970. His body was found on the sidewalk of the building next door to the Turf Club. Stanley Barley and another man, Stuart Barley, were later acquitted of the murder charges. Levi Pace, owner of the Turf Club, told The Sun this morn- ing, "I heard that Curtis was trying to keep him (Stanley) out of trouble." Pace explained Stanley was reportedly thrown out of the Hofbrau, 110 W. 3rd Street, for making a disturbance. So Stanley came to the Turf Club and tried to get Curtis to go to the Hofbrau with him. "Curtis said something about having to fight me Pace said, "and the two men began to leave through the back doors." Pace added Curtis had removed his shirt. "As they were walking out. Curtis was stabbed. It all hap- pened very fast." he continued. Pace estimated that it happen- ed in less than 30 seconds. "There was no argument and no loud he said. "It could have happened any place. I don't think it could have been stopped because it happened so Pace added. Pace said that his bartender. Robert McDonald, called the police. "In fact he called twice. Once when the scuffle began and the second time when Curtis was on the he added.

(AP) Officials believe a 14- year-old Eskimo hoy who couldn't hold out saved a pilot's life after their plane crashed in the Canadian Northwest and rescuers did not find them for 32 days. The pilot, Martin Hartwell. 45. was rescued from the wil- derness Saturday. But the boy, David Kootook, died on the 23rd day of their ordeal, per- haps from despair or more like- ly from chronic appendicitis. Hartwell was reported in ex- cellent condition today at a Yellowknife hospital with two broken ankles and a fractured knee. He only suffered mild frostbite despite temperatures that sometimes were 20 degrees below zero at the crash site GO miles south of Great Bear Lake. The plane went down Nov. 8 while on a medical flight from the remote arctic settlement of Spence Bay to Yellowknife. Also killed were a pregnant Es- kimo and a 27-year-old nurse escorting the woman and young Kootook. The nurse died in the crash and the other woman a few hours later. Hartwell would not speak with reporters after the rescue. But Cpl. Harvie Copt-land a paramedic who was among the first to reach the pilot said, "1 think maybe during the first couple of weeks the hoy con- tributed a lot to him being here now." Copeland and others whu talked with Hartwell got these details about the pilot's surviv- al: Hartwell was unable to move after the crash because of his injuries. But he supervised the boy. who built a log frame over which canvas engine-covers were draped to make a tent. The boy kept a fire going. They ate food that was on the plane and melted snow for drinking water. Kootook also went fishing on a nearbv frozen lake. After 18 days, the youth ap- peared to lose hope, his spirits dropped and he "appeared to give up." Three airplanes flew nearby during the week with- out seeing the wreckage. The youth died on the 23rd day. Hartwell's firewood ran out and. for the last three days be fore the rescue, he did not have anv hot food.

Interior Secretary Rogers C.B. Morton, in a memoran- dum obtained by The Associat- ed Press, has asked his top sub- ordinates for recommendations aimed at solving problems in- volved in such an order. Morton requested the rcc- ommendationsbyDec. t said he would review them be- fore deciding whether to sub- mit them to the White House. Two years ago, despairing of getting major reorganization through an opposition Con- gress, President Nixon used an executive order to create the Environmental Protection Agency, transferring major programs from the Interior Department, the Department of Health, Education and Wel- fare and other agencies. An executive reorganization does not require positive con- gressional approval, hut takes effect unless Congress votes to block it. Congress has failed to act on a series of Nixon proposals to reorganize the Cabinet includ- ing establishment of the de- partment of natural resources As proposed, the department would incorporate all of the present Interior Department and would absorb the Forest Service from the Ariculture Department, civil construction activities from the Army Corps of Engineers, and civilian atomic-power development from the Atomic Energy Com- mission.
