did most of the killing The heaviest fighting was two miles east of Bu Prang where 243 enemy were reported killed Informants said South casualties in the long battle Monday were only 11 wounded because each time the government troops met stiff re- sistance they pulled back and called on American aircraft and artillery The government claim of 243 North Vietnamese killed was somewhat suspect A

SPACE CENTER Houston AP Circling the moon in perfect orbit Apollo explorers inspected their landing craft today and declared it shipshape for a daring bullseye landing on the craggy surface early Wednesday Charles Conrad Jr and Alan L Bean slipped through a connecting tunnel into the fragile lander they call Intrepid leaving Richard F Gordon Jr alone in the command ship Yankee Clipper After an check Bean We've checked out all the things we're supposed to and all shipshape We're ready to go Conrad and Bean hope to set Intrepid down precisely in a circle in the Ocean of Storms on the western side of the moon's visible face at CST tonight Their goal is first detailed scientific exploration of the lunar face Conrad and Bean inspected the landing craft six hours after Apollo 12 swept into lunar orbit which prompted outbursts ot awe and enthusiasm from all three as gazed at the wild and wondrous landscape below Bean shouted Monday night Boy It s beautiful down there Look at that crater Through color television the astronauts shared their magnificent view with a quarter- away The telecast followed the course ot Apollo 12 as it moved across a narrow band moving from east to west Large and small rugged mountains and flat plains were visible as the camera panned across the desolate landscape Even in earth orbit at night or in the daytime the sky was never as black as it is Conrad reported This is the blackest biack I ever saw For Conrad and the view from 70 miles N 3 SETTING UP A LUNAR SCIENTIFIC INFORMATION CENTER Drawing bused on a NASA drawing shows how Apollo 12 astronauts

de- to moon's surface so the camera his climb down the der As the spaceship neared moon Monday he astronauts abandoned an attempt to televise the approach be- cause he sun angle blinded their streaked windows But the second uled telecast after the ship went into lunar orbit was extremely successful This white or gray-white moon it contrasts very starkly with the black sky just like everyone's said

Except for six minutes to erect an American flag and eight minutes to position a color camera the Apollo 12 moon explorers plan to devote all their time to science on their first moon walk Wednesday Astronaut Charles Conrad Jr plans to be outside three hours and 14 minutes during the initial stroll while Alan L Bean is ex- to be outside two hours 23 minutes Wednesday's excursion will begin with Conrad backing out of the hatch of the Intrepid at CST A second stroll begins at p.m Wednesday when Conrad and Bean visit the now dead Surveyor 3 spacecraft First color television should begin at Wednesday after Conrad standing on a der opens a compartment in which the camera is mounted Bean will turn the television on to show Conrad's descent to the moon's surface While Bean films Conrad with a 70 millimeter movie camera the Apollo 12 commander will spend six minutes getting used to low gravity jumping up and down and testing his ance Using a scoop with an sion handle Conrad will pick up a sample of rock and soil put it in a bag and send the bundle in a container up a conveyor bell to Bean Conrad then will snap still photos as Bean starts down ladder at After Bean familiarizes self with the gravity Conrad will spring open an an- tenna which looks like an umbrella Officials hope the antenna to be ed for the second moon walk will improve communications with earth Bean will mount the TV era on a tripod 20 feet from lander Then he and Conrad push a staff inlo the ground and attach a nylon American flag to it As Conrad continues to align the antenna Bean is to erect an attached to a

Intrepid from the command ship Yankee Clipper at p.m tonight For more than hours they will keep the world In suspense as they execute ers on the dangerous and difficult descent Their goal is a pinpoint landing near an un- named crater an area described by Conrad be- fore the night as gently rolling pocked with small craters but relatively smooth The astronauts have dubbed the landing target

CENTER ton AP Apollo flying the riskiest space flight ever face a gruelling workday thai safety rules would for- bid to an airline pilot or bus driver An airline pilot on a tine flight must rest after eight hours and let someone else take over Charles Conrad Jr and Alan L Bean must fly for nine hours and still be alert enough to land on the moon and walk its surface in bulky suits no one to take over A bus driver crossing the must knock off er 10 hours The federal government says that's his safety limit Richard F Gordon Jr must fly for 19 hours most of it alone and still stay enough to perform complex navigation lems while orbiting moon Conrad Gordon and Bean woke up at p.m CST today During the next 20 hours Conrad and Bean will land on the moon get out of the spacecraft and walk the lunar surface for 314 hours Gordon will spend much of the alone orbiting the moon la spacecraft that was to be operated by three men During 20 hours each decision and each move must be right is much more unforgiving than the hazards faced by the airline pilot or the In- bus driver Space officials said astronauts spent months building up heir for their mission Joseph D Garino an ex- perl on
