(AP) United' States scored a major advance in space today when the' crippled spacecraft Ranger 4 crash- landed on the far side of the moon. It was this country's first success in seven attempts to land a piece of hardware on the' moon and virtually duplicated the feat of Rus- sia's Lunik II which hit the 12, 1959. A space official called the feat another of the long strides in space made in the. past year. James E. Webb, head of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, told newsmen Ranger was much more com- plex than anything the Soviets have attempted. Dr. William Pickering, director of NASA's jet propulsion labora- tory which built Ranger 4, said that despite the failure of a key electronic system in the space- craft the fact that it hit the moon "gives us confidence we can send instruments to the moon with the accuracy needed." He said another Ranger to take close-up television pictures of the moon's surface will be launched by the end of the year. The crippled Ranger 4 zipped behind the moon at a.m., PST EST) and the scientists tracking it calculated that it impacted on far- side'! two minutes later. Although there was no way of seeing the actual impact, scien- tists said Ranger 4's trajectory before assured predicted area. 1.1-1" t The 780-pound vehicle, launched from Cape Canaveral, Fla., U.S. Checks Results Of First Nuclear Test Shot WASHINGTON today checked preliminary data from the first blast in the new U.S. nuclear test series to see if it yielded significant information on improving the efficiency of American atomic weapons. The new series got under way Wednesday over remote Christ- mas Island in the Pacific with the explosion of a research and development device, rather than a finished atomic weapon. A simi- lar device likely will be used for the second in a few the United States pursues one of the major goals of the new test series: greater weapons efficiency. Reaction in the wake of the opening blast was as expected. In Congress, Democratic and Re- publican leaders said there had been no alternative but to test again in the atmosphere, the So- viet Union loosed a vehement at- tack on the United States and from other nations there was a mixed chorus of denunciation and approval. Some U.S. officials predicted anew that Russia would now fol- low an- other -test series of her own. Informed sources suggested that the leadoff U.S. device in Opera- tion Dominic, the name given to the first U.S. atmospheric tests in almost four years, .probably rocked the Pacific waters with the blast equivalent of to 500.000 tons of TNT.

Thor-Delta rocket thundered skyward today in an effort to launch the world's first interna- tional joint effort of the United States and Great Brit- ain.

The extent to which East-West tensions build up will depend on the violence of the Soviet propa- ganda barrage and related actions that Khrushchev takes in the next few days. For example, there has been speculation in Geneva that the Russians would walk out of the 17-nation disarmament confer- ence. But at the State Department this was considered unlikely. Recent public statements by Khrushchev, as in his interview with American publisher Gardner Cowles, were interpreted to mean commentator charges President Kennedy with lie" when he'said March-he 'didrnot-want -tests; says "new round- in the nuclear arms" race has been started" Russian officials at U.N. say American tests "will upset bal- ance" of nuclear strength that Soviets equalized with series last year. U.S. disarma- ment negotiator Arthur H. Dean tells 17-nation disarmament con- ference quick and permanent ban on nuclear testing remains prime objective of Washington policy and negotiations for test ban must continue. Soviet Deputy Foreign Minister Valerian A. Zorin tells conference the new American tests were "an aggressive act directed against the world which has pushed us closer to the abyss of inevitable announcement, similar in style to those that followed 29 announced underground tests, the Atomic Energy Commission described Wednesday's blast as "in< the intermediate yield range." Other sources said word from Task Force 8 in the test area was that the firing was successful. The device apparently, was 5 to 25. times-more-powerful than the bomb that leveled Hiroshima. to- ward 'the end of World War II. But it was weak, in comparison with some of this country's hy- drogen bombs, rated at an explo- sive equivalent of 20 million tons of TNT. 'The opening test device was dropped from an airplane, prob- ably a B52 or B47 bomber. This indicated the explosion may have occurred below rel- atively low level blast. Later shots, around Johnston Island, will include'some at high altitudes ranging from 30 to sev- eral hundred miles above the Pacific. These probably will be propelled upward by missiles. Sources said the device deto- nated Wednesday was monitored by sensitive 'instruments geared to absorb a variety of -informa- tion. The blast force, the character- istics of the fire ball, the heat generated all will indicate whether the laboratory experi- ments and calculations have put U.S: track of. improving the-efficiency of this....country's warheads..and bombs. A premium has been placed on packing more explosive power into smaller warheads because this would increase the destruc- tive capability of U.S. missiles. Experts considered it unlikely that the explosion produced much data on another important phase of the on "the ef- fects of nuclear blasts on radar and communications elements of antimissile systems. Sources said, they expect the later high altitude tests to furnish scientific, information on this problem. President Kennedy gave the Saturn Stays On Schedule CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla.
