Sullivan said today he thinks fed- eral aid under the urban renewal program may be the "only logical way" to reconstruct traffic patterns for the Park Street area. Sullivan said he took this stand after viewing several sketches of proposed street realignment for the area to accommodate a new cen- tral library and an Arts and Science Center to be built there. Drawn Foe Committee The sketches were drawn by David Hamilton, a local civil en- gineer, for the aldennanic traffic committee.

Moon-Landing Site Found to Be Ancient By WALTER SULLIVAN York Tlmx tiriici NEW YORK-An analysis-of ipecimcns brought back from the moon by the Apollo II astro- nauts has shown its at least In the vicinity of Tran- quilily base to be extraor- dinarily ancient. The findings indicate that, contrary (o earlier beliefs, the Sea of Tranqtrility has not been flooded or strewn with vokanic material of recent origin. In fact, as one lunar.scientist put it last night, it is beginning .0 look as though none of those who have proposed models for the origin of the moon's sur- face features will prove coo pletely correct neither those, lor example, who believe vol- canic activity has been reshap- ing the moon throughout its his- lory nor those who say all unar craters were formed by meteorite impacts. Preliminary results of the sample analyses are lo be an- nounced today, but the gist ol the findings has become known. A fuller presentation is planned in a series of articles (o appear in the Journal Science when quarantine of the lunar samples ends in mid-September. i It has been found that the Sea of Tranquility where five weeks ago astronauts Neil A Armstrong and Edwin Aldrin Jr., first jlanled human foot- prints, appears lo have as- sumed its present form J 5 bil- lion years ago. Like the other lunar it is a .comparatively smooth dark area in contrast to bright rugged "highlands" in other areas of the moon. Based on Cratm Many nave believed the lunar seas were young compared to age of the moon itseU. This was because the number of craters per 100 square milts of lunar surface Is considerably less in the seas than In the highlands. If these craters were formed >y meteorite bombardment that was as intense, per century, on ihe seas as on the highlands, impact scars on the seas would mean (hey arc younger. It now appears that much of Ole cataclysmic activity that shaped the surface of the moon zi It Is seen today was crowded into the earliest part of the moon's history. Thus, while the seas may be younger than the highlands, they are not much younger. It may also be that mooff and debris thrown up by distant meteorite impacts on the lunar surface. In one test, using a so-calledi The lunar surface material mass spectrometer, the also saturated with ele- a! was analyzed for its derived from long-term of the greater prevalence of bombardment by extremelyiples in terms of the extent to craters in the highlands is In part a result of volcanic erup- tions there. The analysis of lunar samples has been carried out under stringent quarantine restrictions at the lunar receiving labora- tory, operated by the National Aeronautics and Space Adminis- tration at the Manned Space- craft Center near Houston, Texas. It has involved both dust and rock samples. The dust, like sand on a beach, presumably represents a sampling o! particles from a variety of rocks, as well as cosmic dust that rained on the where water erosion and other processes continually the landscape: "nobel" or chemically noh-reactive gaises neon, argon, fcryplon and xenon.

It is largely through meas- urement of the extent of this slow decay process that scien- lists are able to determine how long it has been since a rock was last heated by .volcanic ac- Uvily or other processes.
