IQc DAILY-20C SUNDAY Prtu SPACE CENTER, Houston (Af Three American astro- nauts sped smoothly toward a risky moon adventure Saturday their spacecraft spinning slowly through space and the earth receding slowly behind them Apollo 13 astronauts James L. Lovell Jr., Fred W. Haise Jr. and John L. Swigerl Jr rode quietly but firmly on the path to the moon despite a launch marred by a premature rocket cut off. They watched as a spent rock- et hull was sent fleeting ahead toward the moon. A rocket fir- ing on command from the ground set the booster toward a powerful lunar collision which scientists hope will reveal se- crets about 'the moon's interior. Swigerl, a last minute substi- lute on the crew for another as- tronaut who is suspected of being infected by German mea- sles, was complimented bv ground controllers for his flying They told the civilian space- man he had used 20 pounds less fuel in rocket firings than hart been predicted. So accurately was Apollo 13 on its path to the moon, mission controllers cancelled a course correction rocket firing that had been scheduled for early Sun- day. Another correction is planned Sunday night, however. Haise and Swigert took pictures of the eavth .on given signals from mission con- trol. The pictures will later help meteorologists study the earth's weather patterns. Speed of the spacecraft, which reached miles an hour just after Apollo 13 rocketed out of earth orbit, slowly declined as it started up the "gravity hill'.1 toward the moon. Its speed had fallen to miles per hour by p.m. CST, eight hours after launch. The moon and the earth will play a game of gravity tug nf war with the spacecraft until lu- nar gravity gains control Mon- day afternoon. The craft will Hurts to say goodbye then pick up speed. The astronauts set their spacecraft into a gentle spin early Saturday night. The spin, called the "barbeque evenly distributes the heat from the sun. Ground controllers triggered a small rocket firing on the spent rocket booster. The firing corrected the flight path of the rocket hull, aiming it at a pre- planned impact point on the moon. A second course correc- tion was unneeded, officials de- cided. The rocket will hit the moon with the force of 11 tons of dyna- mite at p.m. Tuesday, just after the astronauts go into lu- nar orbit. The impact will send shock waves through the moon crust which will be recorded by a seismic measuring device left on the moon by Apollo 12 crew- men. Earlier the asl'ron an t s beamed a color television signal earthward as they delicately maneuvered the command mod- ule into a nose to nose link up with the moon landing craft.
