The rocket, a Titan 3-E Centaur, carried a West German built Helios spacecraft into a solar or- bit that is to bring it 28 million miles from the sun, .closer than any previous Titan 3-E Centaur rockets are scheduled to be used next Aug. 11 and 21 for launching the two Viking craft, each containing both an orbiter and a lander, on nearly year long voyages to Mars. The Centaur stage of the assembly had malfunction- ed last January, aborting the first test and delaying the Helios launching several months. Of last week's success, Walter Jakobowsky, the Viking program manager at the headquarters of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, said, "we were holding our breath. That launch vehicle has to work for us. We were very pleased with the over all performance." The Viking program holds a key place in American planetary ex- ploration plans. Because of the potential scientific im- portance of finding traces of martian life, even when chances for this are rated as slim, the scientific ad- visers of the American space program have recommended delaying any decision on future probes of Mars until the results of Viking are in. Dr. Richard Goody of Harvard University, chairman of the Space Science Board of the National Academy of Sciences, said in a telephone interview that "most people are not very sanguine" about the chances for detecting evidence of martian life, but if such life was found, the whole future of mar- tian exploration would be affected. "You really can't make any decision until you see what Viking he added. Unless forestalled by Soviet spacecraft, the Vik- ing landers could be the first working scientific stations on the surface of Mars, a planet that never comes closer than 35 million miles from earth. A four craft scientific assault on Mars by the Soviet union this year, when the United States was not attempting a Mars ex- ploration, was virtually a failure, as were all previous Soviet probes that had been made at almost every favorable opportuni- ty since 1960. This week, the Viking program reaches another milestone, as managers of the effort gather in Denver to review the readiness of the first Viking lander for shipment from the Martin Marietta Corporation to Cape Canaveral, Fla. The first lander is scheduled to be delivered in January, and the second m February. The two orbiter sections, being built at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, Calif., are scheduled for delivery in February. One of the two Titan 3-E Centaur rockets for Viking was delivered in Florida in November, and the second is to arrive at the end of February. The Viking program is by far the most expensive ef- fort to date in unmanned exploration of the planet. Its cost is nearly 10 times as much as that of the Mariner craft that flew by Mars in 1965 and 1969, the Mariner that orbited Mars in 1971-72, the Mariner that flew by Venus and Mercury this year, or the Pioneers that flew close to Jupiter in November, 1973, and earlier this month. Syphilis study participants receive MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) Black men who went without treatment for syphilis as part of a government ex- periment would receive 500 each under a tentative out- of-court settlement filed Mon- day- Plaintiffs in the class action damage suit originally asked for million each. More than 600 black men from Macon County partici- pated in the United States Public Health Service's Tuskegee study which began in 1932 and ended in 1972 when it was brought to light. About 100 of the 600 men are still alive. Forty of the surviv- ing men filed suit in 1973, seeking a total of billion for the survivors and for the estates of the deceased men The tentative settlement could total in the millions of dollars. It would provide: for each syphilic participant who is still alive. for each non- syphilic participant who is still alive. for the estate of each deceased syphilic par- ticipant. for the estate of each deceased nonsyphilic participant. MOST NOT INFECTED About 400 of the 600 partici- pants in the Tuskegee study had syphilis in non-infectious stages. The others, did not have syphilis and served as a control group. U.S. District Court Judge Frank Johnson set a final hearing in the case for Feb. 17. The purpose of the Tuskegee experiment was to test effects of syphilis on the human body. The suit said that some of the men were never told they had syphlis and that treatment was denied even after penicillin became available. Twenty-six or more men died as a result of untreated syphilis during the 40-year ex- periment.
