Skylab doctor ill after epic flight PARIS (Reuter) France kept the world guessing today about its controversial nuclear test plans, but all the signs pointed to an explosion in the South Pacific within the nsxt 48 hours. Despite Friday's injunction by the International Court of Jus- tice at The Hague, calling on France to abandon the tests, speculation continued that the first mushroom cloud would riss over Mururoa Atoll this weekend. French government spokes- men reiterated their position Friday that the world court in The Hagueis not competent to rule on matters concerning "na- tional Australia and New Zealand both appealed to the world court to demand that France call off its test program.

More than 200 firemen, aided by four helicopters, battled the blaze, which erupted after a week of temperatures rising as high as 105 degrees. Skylab commander Charles (Pete) Conrad experienced some dizziness but improved to near normal within two hours, Hawkins reported. The third crew member, Paul Weitz, had more trouble than Conrad in adapting to eaith gravity but was not as sick as Kerwin.

Space agency officials said the men had accomplished es- sentially all the mission's objec- tives. They returned with plenti- ful data from observations of the sun and earth and from medical studies of the effects of weightlessness. Hawkins said he expected the men to feel substantially better today after a night's sleep. Conrad had reported the crew was m "super shape" as their space capsule made a perfect landing about 830 miles south- west of San Diego. But after the capsule was hoisted to the carrier deck, the men walked heavily and un- steadily from it to a nearby lab. Hawkins said Kerwin was aided by inflated pants that pre- vented the blood from pooling in his legs and raised his blood pressure. Conrad and Weitz were the pants uninflated. IN GOOD SHAPE During a long series of tests, Conrad was the only one who could perform about as well as he had before the mission. He experienced irregular heart- beats, but Hawkins said it was "nothing to be concerned about." But when Weitz was riding a bicycle that measures work out- put, his blood pressure and puLe rale dropped suddenly. He also fell dizzy and nauseated but recovered quickly when the test was halted. Kerwin first ran into trouble when he was put in a device that has the opposite effect of the inflatable pants. It forces blood to pool m the legs to show how the circulatory system re- sponded to stress. Hawkins said that, as the de- vice caused progressively more stress, Kerwin's blood pressure dropped and his heartbeat slowed. That test was stopped, and it was decided not to at- tempt the bicycle test. A series of blood chemistry and urine tests did not show anything out of the ordinary, said Hawkins. He added there was no evi- dence that any of the astronauts would suffer any permanent disability. He also said the med- ical problems did not seem likely to interfere with the next two planned Skylab missions of 56 days each.

New Zealand Prime Minister Norman Kirk announced today the New Zealand frigate Otago will sail towards the French test site next Thursday. The Australian navy ship Sup- ply will accompany the Otago. Premier Gough Whitlam said today. Whitlam said: "Neither ship will seek a confrontation with French armed forces In the test area. The Supply will remain outside the zone declared by the French government." The decision to send the oiler fol'owed a government under- taking to New Zealand to pro- vide refuelling for the Otago on the journey. Peru announced Friday night that another anti-test expedition was preparing to sail, con- sisting of two officials from its fisheries ministry and 11 others.

EDMONTON (CP) Solici- tor General Warren Allmand's statement that amendments to the government's capital pun- ishment bill would be intro- duced to enforce abolition of the death psnalty described Friday as "irresponsible and reckless" in a strong statement by an opposition MP. Doug Roche, Conserva t i v e Member if Parliament for Ed- monton Strathcona, said Mr. Allmand should have introduc- ed the terms in the initial bill. "As one who supported Bill C-2 on second reading in the House of Commons. I feel de- said Mr. Roche. "I voted for the bill to extend by five years the trial period of partial abolition. I did so in order to get the bill into committee. Mr. Roche said the initial terms were that capital punish- ment could be abolished after the five-year period approved in second reeading provided that a minimum mandatory sentence of 25 years would be imposed on conviction of premeditated murder. Mr. Allmand has said he wants to abolish capital punish- ment while allowing parole of murderers after serving 10 years of a sentence. He would allow temporary leave in day parole after seven years. Prime Minister Trudeau said Mr. All- mand has government backing for the new direction of the cap- ital punishment bill. Mr. Roche asked why the so- licitor general has changed his mind. The long debate certainly did not demonstrate that the coun- try wanted abolition with early parole, said Mr. Roche. "The reverse is true The de- bate showed that Canadians are deeply worried about escalating violence and crime, the lax pa- role system and penitentiaries gaining reputations for the number of escapes." iy a forum WASHINGTON (AP) Costa Rica has blocked the extra- dition of an American financier facing trial in connection with a presidential camcaign contribu- tion and a United States senator may ask to testify before the Senate Watergate committee. These were two developments Friday in Watergate related matters. They involved finan- cier Robert Vesco, indicted by a federal grand jury, and Senator George McGovern (Dem. the 1972 Democratic presiden- tial candidate. Meanwhile, a former presi- dential aide said he expressed concern last January to H. R. Haldeman, then White House chief of staff, that former attor- ney-general John Mitchell and John Dean, counsel to the presi- dent had been involved in politi- cal espionage planning sessions. The Senate committee pre- pared for Dean's public and televised testimony Monday morning, following a week of news leaks about what the fired presidential_counsel said about top-level volvement cover-up.
