Nixon said the United States and South Vietnam hare made a peace offer "which U as gener- ous as any ever made in the his- tory of warfare."

Nix- on's visit differed In that re- spect from the two quick jour- neys former President Johnson made to the war tone in 1966 and 1967. Johnson both times flew only Into Cam Raoh Bay, a big. high- ly secure U.S. supply base on the coast some ISO miles from Saigon. Nixon flew into Tan San Nhut airport at the South Vietnamese capital, then went by helicopter to the heart of the city for a ZH-hour conference wih South Vietnamese President Nguyen Van Thieu at Independence Pa- lace. The building was an ene- my mortar target when former Vice President Hubert H.

Abrams. the U.S. Commander in Viet- nam, who returned from Bang- kok with his commander in chief, said currently "the feel- ing is that Saigon is generally secure" although there have been some terrorist attacks. The last rocket assault was about three weeks ago.

And they taw Neil A. Arm- tlrong go cautiously down a lad- and then plant footprint on the der, pause, man's first moon. This was the first of the Apol- lo U movie footage in color and It captured much of the drama of the landing by Armstrong and Edwin E. Aldrin Jr. The color films were shown to newsmen at the Manned Space- craft Center and transmitted si- multaneously by network televi- sion to viewers across the coun- try. Part of the adventure was televised live July JO, but that was in black and white. The first still photographs, also In color, sprinilec with footprints and eerie houettes of the spaceship, ant! showed the American flag perched on the beach-like sur- face. A tecond set of stills, release! Tuesday caught Arm- strong'inside the lunar module, showed the landing site from above and rocks on the'lunar soil. This set also included a pic- ture of earth with Europe, Afri- ca and Asia visible. The 16 millimeter movie film opened as the Eagle approached the landing site, cratered and glowing and visible through Ald- rin's right-hand window. It was at about this point 10 days ago that a worldwide audi- ence, tuned in to the space con- versation, heard this exchange: Mission control: "Eagle, looking great... you're Eagle: '704 feet... SOO feet __got the shadow out there 200 feet... things looking gooc light? on .40 feet picking up some dust... SO feel faint shadow Houston, Tranquillity base here. The Ea- gle has landed."

Most of the' shots, shown at five-minute intervals'on televi- sion monitor at the Jel Propul- sion Laboratory, were dim ani funy, depicting an egg-shapec body with the south polar cap gleaming on the right side. Few features were distinguishable. The frames were made miles apart and as the final few flashed on screen, landmarks well known to istromoncn from telescopic photographs, from earth came into prominence. The ragged cap edge became visible on frame 20, causing aboratory com menf. "Perhaps the most excil ing result Is that some picture show a ragged edge on th southern polar cap, possibly caused by the presence .0 mountains or craters.. This I new information." The cap's dark spot, whlcl the spokesman said had no been noted before and which h could not explain, showed o frame 30. Another feature of f nal shot was that the north po- lar cap, barely visible in, earl pictures, stood out brightly.
