While some scientists are still not satisfied with the Space Agency's measures, Assistant Surgeon .General David J. Scn- cer, head of the Jnleragency Committee on Back Contamina- tion, said. today that he was greatly encouraged by the prog- .ress NASA has made in reme- the deficiencies since the warnings were made. added that he did not there will be a serious danger of back contamination the first Apollo astronauts return from the moon, probably in'late July. Reached by telephone in At- lanta where he is director of the National Communicable Disease Center, Sencer con- firmed that warnings had been made in two letters he sent on 1 April 7 to Dr. Thomas 0.

Sencer's two letters said the Interagency Committee, an ad- visory group composed of scien- tists from the U.S. Public Health Service, the Depart- ments of Agriculture and In- terior, the National Academy of Sciences and NASA was dis- satisfied with both NASA's plan' for transferring the astronauts from their command module to quarantine quarters, and with the Lunar Receiving Labora- tory at Houston, where, the as- tronauts are scheduled to he quarantined tor several weeks. Scientists generally believe there is little probability life actually exists on the moon, but concern that such life may ex- ist, and could pose a threat to living organisms on this planet, had led NASA'to spend millions of dollars to try to assure there would be no contamination, by the returning astronauts. Since his letters were written, Senccr said, NASA has substan- tially improved both personnel training and equipment func- tioning at the lunar, receiving laboratory in Houston. It has also demonstrated, lie said, that the precautions being taken to prevent contamination when the astronauts leave the command module in the sea meet the standards set Ihe inter- agency committee. The present plan is to permit the astronauts returning from the moon to leave their capsule after it lands in the spa. Once they have left the capsule, each one will have a so-called bio- logical isolation garment draped over him so as to mini- mize the risk of contamination. Before they leave the capsule, the.astronauts are scheduled to vacuum clean the interior so as to remove any -particles that might be or might carry lunar life. The material caught up by this vacuum cleaning will be trapped in canisters containing lithium hydroxide. These canis- ters are part of the standard spacecraft environmental con- trol system.
