A spokesman said NORAD monitored the launch as well. Tracking indicates the satel- lite orbits once every min- utes at a distance varying from about 250 miles to 1.500 miles above the earth.

Paine, head of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, said until more is known about the satel- lite and its capabilities "we can- not make an intelligent estimate of its value." He said placing the satellite in orbit, was "a dramatic demon- stration of the Chinese leaders many put science and technology very high on their list of national priorities." Congressional space experts expressed surprise at the launching although they said they had been aware that China was developing a space capabil- ity. "I didn't think they had come that fast." said Chairman George P. Miller. D-Calif.. of the House Science and Astron- autics Committee.

Arms Issue Places Nixon On Hot Seat Astronauts Tell Congressmen of Troubled Flight WASHINGTON (AP) The White House has branded the conflict in Cambodia "clearly a foreign invasion." but says President Nixon needs more time to decide whether the Unit- ed States will pour arms into the Southeast Asian country'. "The obvious fact is that Communist forces is clearly a foreign invasion, and in no sense could this be a pre- tense of a civil war." presiden- tial press Secretary Ronald L. Ziegler said Friday" But Ziegler declined to say- when the administration will re- spond to Cambodia's urgent ap- peals for U.S. arms aid. Nixon has the whole situation under consideration. Ziegler said, adding: "He is watching it and is concerned with it." The arms requests have put Nixon sn a difficult political po- sition, especially after he an- nounced last Monday the phased withdrawal of an addi- tional U.S. troops in Vi- etnam within the next year. The White House announced Thursday the United States has approved a plan by the South Vietnamese to send several thousand Soviet-built rifles to Cambodia. At the same time, Ziegler said, that action does not consti- tute a reply to Cambodia's re- peated requests for U.S. assist- ance in putting down the Com- munist forces, a problem Nixon KS pondering this weekend. The President twice this week postponed meetings of the Na- tional Security Council, appar- ently to wait for the situation in Cambodia to jell. Meantime, many members of Congress are expected io make Solon Hopes To Block Cambodian Loophole BEVERLY HILLS Sen. Charles E. Goodell. R- N.Y.. says he plans to make a legislative effort to block Pres- ident Nixon from sending American military personnel in- to Cambodia for any reason. Goodell told a news confer- ence prior to an address before the Los Angeles World Affairs Council Friday that he will introduce an amendment "to appropriate legislation on the Senate floor, barring any American military intervention in Cambodia." The Senator said Nixon har indicated he docs not want further involvement in Cambo- dia but he has left the door open if ihe Communists take a "wrong action" in Cambodia. He said Nixon's warning that the Communists mast restrain themselves contains "grave implications" as to the possibi- lities of U.S. intervention. Goodell proposes to include "necessarily writing off Cambo- dia in the sense that our staying out would mean the disruption of Cambodia. Cambo- dia may well survive on its own." The New York lawmaker said he had not consulted Republi- can Senate leadership, but is confident he will receive strong backing from a number of his colleagues, including Sen. Wil- liam Fulbright, D-Ark. Goodell proposes to include any air action over Cambodia- such as bombing, or tactical air his restrictions on U.S. actions. it clear they oppose any U.S. in- volvement in the Cambodian conflict. In a television interview on NBC Friday. Senate Majority Leader Mike of Mon- tana he feels the United States "absolutely" bhouid stay oat of Cambodia.

But he aiso said iha; ;n cases involving nonnuciear ajjro-ss-.nn "we shall fumi.sh and a.xsistar.i e -vhen re- quested and as appropriate." Pentagon: Orbiting Expected WASHINGTON (AP) The Pentagon said today tr-c launch- ing of an earth-orbiting satellite by Communist China comes as no surprise. It noted that Secretary of De- fense Melvin R. Laird toid Con- gress in February that the Chinese "will attempt to test launch their first 1CBM or space booster in the near future." "This launch (by the the department said in a statement, "obviously re- flects the significant progress which is being made in that country." WASHINGTON (AP) Al- though their spacecraft failed them on their mission :o explore the moon, two of the Apolio 13 astronauts were received like heroes on Capitol Hill by con- gressmen happy just to have them ixsck. And NASA officials indicated at a hearing before the Senate space committee that something as small as a bit of insulation or aluminum have sparked the explosion that crippled the Apollo 13 service module en- route to the moon. "We are essentially people who test James A. Lovel! Jr.. told the Senate hear- ing. "In this business can't expect successes ail the time." I.ovei! and John L. Swigert jr. spent o; two hours retell- ing the story of the trouble- piagucd flight and their recov- ery-, then lunched in a House dining room ar.I spent an hour room and spent an hour gressrr.en and their staff mem- bers. The third astronaut, Fred Haise Jr., remained behind in Houston nursing a urinary track infection. Marilyn Loveil, Jim's wife, said "he is pretty sick, with degree temperature and taking a lot of medication." Dr. Rocco A. Petrone. the Apollo program director, told newsmen after the hearing that some material reacting in one of the super-cold oxygen tanks might have provided "the ener- gy source" that caused the ex- plosion. "We greatly suspect an ener- gy source inside the tank." he s-aid. "Wire insulation can be an energy source. Aluminum wire can be an energy source. "The energy increase (that burst the tank) was probably caused by oxidation in the tank." There are two oxygen tanks aboard the service moduie. made of a nickel-steel alloy called Inconel. Each is 25 inches in diameter and holds 326 pounds of oxygen in a semili- o.uid. semigas state. Pressures in ihe tank normally between S70 and 930 pounds per square At the rsme of the explosion, pressure in the number two tank rose to l.OOS psi. There also was an ampere something was de- manding current. Dr. Thomas 0. Paine, the space agency administrator, said the oxygen tank was a sim- ple component and that correc- tive action should not prove dif- ficult. "If this turns out to be the case." he said, "we should be able to proceed with Apollo 14 and subsequent flights" on schedule. Apollo 1-s is being readied for an October launch. It has not been decided wheth- er Apollo 14 will be targeted like Apollo 13 for Fra an- cient and scientifically interest- ing highland whether it will try for Littrow Rirn as scheduled. "This hilly region remains a very high priority objective." Paine said. "We cannot say which of the remaining Apolio missions will be sent there." I
