The marchers said they would continue until dawn Saturday, until the name of every G.I. slain in-the long war had been called to the President's house, then dropped in coffins at the foot of the Capitol grounds.

(AP) America's Apollo 12 astronauts rode a Saturn 5 rocket into earth orbit through a thunderstorm today, successfully com- pleting the first step in man's second moon-landing expedition. Starts On Time The world's most powerful rocket thundered away at 11 22 am (EST) to start Charles "Pete" Conrad Jr, Richard F. Gordon Jr and Alan L Bean toward a hoped-for pinpoint landing in the Ocean of Storms to begin the first detailed ex- ploration of the moon. The weather conditions were the worst for any American space launching The storm moved into the area about an hour before the liftoff and for'a while threatened to delay the launch But officials decided the con- ditions were satisfactory and gave the go ahead Conrad agreed with the deci- sion, saying, "Sounds good to me." President and Mrs. Nixon were among the thousands of spectators watching the launch- ing in the ram. They had only brief glimpse of the rocket before it was enveloped in clouds seconds after launch. The roar of the rockets fight- ing for altitude shook the ground as the spacecraft raced out over the Atlantic Ocean. To reach the moon, Apollo 12 first must orbit the earth times in 2% hours while the spacemen make certain their spaceship systems are function- ing Several seconds after the spacecraft cleared the launch pad, mission controllers report- ed a sudden drop out in data and Conrad later said, "I don't know what happened. I'm not sure we didn't get hit by light- jaing." Observers noted two lightning bolts just-after the launching.' 'i The signals returned quickly Even though Apollo 11, man'i first moon landing in July, was successful, space agency offi- cials emphasized that flying to the moon is not easy and that danger lies all along the translu- nar trail.

Agnew, asserting that public opinion is being molded by selective or biased news telecasts, says the- time may have come for the networks to be "made more re- sponsive to the views of the na- tion." In a speech to a Midwest re- gional Republican committee, the vice president declared Thursday night that power over television news is concentrated "in the hands of a tiny and closed fraternity of men." Agriew emphasized he was hot suggesting any kind .of govern- ment censorship. And he said the networks have made impor- tant contributions to national knowledge. He added they often have used their power construc- tively arid creatively to "awak- en the public conscience to criti- cal problems." Raises Doubts But he said an unfair news presentation could raise wide- spread doubts about the veraci- ty of a public official or the wis- dom of a government policy and urged televiewers to "let the networks know that they want their news straight and objec- tive." Agnew was immediately chal- lenged by some network and other TV spokesmen who charged him with an attempt to SPIRO T. AGNEW coerce television industry into morefavorable treatment of .the federal government Dr Frank Stanton, president of CBS-which along with the other major networks carried the speech it an "unpretedented attempt by the Vice President of the United States to intimidate a news me- dium which depends for its ex- TONIGHT IN THE TELEGRAM istence upon government li- censes." Julian Goodman, president of NBC, said it was "an appeal to prejudice" in which Agnew "uses the influence of his high office to criticize the way gov- ernment-licensed news medium covers the activities of'govern- ment itself." Leonard H. Goldenson, presi- dent of ABC, said he felt that "the performance, of ABC news has always been and will contin- ue to be fair and objective'' He expressed confidence in "the ul- timate judgment of the Ameri- can public." A spokesman for the Mutual Radio network "heartily en- dorsed" the speech as a "call for balance, responsi- bility and accuracy in news presentation." Networks and affiliated sta- tions reported many telephone calls m response to Agnew's suggestion of public protest against TV news handling. The count of caller views ranged from 231 in favor of Agnew and two against him at WBAP-TV; the NBC affiliate in Ft. Worth, Tex, to 614 favorable and against; at NBC in New York. Agnew told his Republican audience an example of the kind of TV news handling he had in mind was the networks' com- ment immediately after Presi- dent Nixon's Vietnam speech Nov. 3 The Vice President said it was "obvious" that commentators had their minds made up in ad- vance. In his speech Agnew said, "Every American has a right to disagree with the President. of AGNEW Page I Craig Says He Will Resign As Democratic Party Head FUEL OIL SAVE MORE With LORDEN OIL CO, INC.
