is whether the air contains nitrogen oxygen and hydrogen present in earths atmos if there is water on the planet The scientists in Jet Propul slon LaboraiorysMission Con trol confessed Tuesday night they were rather disappointed in the firstof the 38 pictures that slowly unfolded line by line across the television screen The principal objection was the low contrast but Dr Robert B Leighton of the California Institute of Technolo gy said the later shots were much finer than Ive ever seen in photographs and much finer I think than ever seen by the eye from earth Never Seen Before He said the pictures showed details never before seen by man such as ragged edges of the south polar cap The poles believed made out of frozen carbon the clearest details in the initial batch The 17 pictures taken this morning and to be transmitted back to earth tonight were expected to show greater detail because Mariner 6 will be much closer to the planet These photos were expected to knock down once and for all the supposed existence of so called canals that for years have been the stuff of science fiction writers and stirred scientific controversy Viewers of the final approach pictures also may see at least one of the two tiny moons that circle Mars Scientists said Phobos might reflect enough light to be discerned on the screen although the pictures probably would have to be specially processed to remove distortion before the moon would show up The primary mission was to determine whether the Martian environment could support earthlike life not to find out whether life actually exists Leighton was asked anyway whether he thought there was life on the Red Planet I would say that thev possibilities are 1 per cent or one tenth of 1 per cent but the important thing Is if we can find out if there is or not Leighton said Democratic Proposal On Tax Surcharge Rejected Madera Child By Aiito PHILLJPSBURG1Pa UPI Tina Marie Kephart 2 was kill ed Monday night when she fell out of the
