By HOWARD BENEDICT SPACE CENTER, Houston (AP) The Apollo 10 astronauts ended their moon odyssey and streaked for planet earth today, sharing their thoughts and views with mankind as they headed home. Air Force Col. Thomas P. Stafford and Navy Cmdrs. John W. Young and Eugene A. Cernan fired Apollo 10's engine at a. m. EDT to dart out of moon orbit and start the quarter million-mile homeward journey. Heading for Campsite For a Scout on a long march, there Is always the prospect of a camp to set up and a meal to get ready when he gets where he's going.

They had circled the moon for during which they cleared the way for two Ameri- can astronauts to land on the moon in July.

Another ordinance com- ing up for final approval would alter the traditional summer meeting schedule .of the aldermen to provide for two additional iriefitings annually. Ten Measures The measures are among 10 which are listed tin the rela- tively light agenda the Tues- day alderraanic meeting. Aldermen-at- Large Eerlrand J. Bouchard and John V. Ches- son are the co-endorsers of the work ordinance. Aside from the 40-hour work week, the measure also calls for offices to remain open throughout the lunch period by providing a staggered lunch pe- riod for staff members; installa- tion of a time clock by all city departments for hourly rated employes with the City Hall time clock to be installed and maintained by Finance Officer John H. Buck. New Policy The new policy would apply to all departments except when specifically exempted by the al- dermen. Exemptions would be con- sidered upon written requests to the aldermen. The new work policy would become effective 30 days after passage. Some already have a 40-hour workweek and time clocks. The work weeks varies mostly among City Hall personnel. For some office workers there, daily hours are from 9 to 5 with an hour and a half for lunch for a total work week of hours. Employes in the city clerk and city treasurer offices are on this they must also work until' 8'-'p.m. Thurs- days, on an alternate basis. School office workers have a long work day, beginning before 'to coincide with the opening of schools in the morning. Orheir City Hall workers have only an hour for lunch instead of an hour and a half. Most City Hall offices remain open throughout lunch but sev- eral close down. completely. The rules committee has rec- ommended passage for the ordi- nance to. alter the summer meeting schedule of the alder- men, provided it is amended. Under long-standing rules of procedure, the aldermen meet twice a month except for June, July, August and September when they meet only once. The ordinance sponsored by Alderman-at-Large Francis La- Flamme would have had the al- dermen meet once in June and July and twice in August and September. Aldermanic Meetings Rules committee members are recommending instead that the aldermen meet twice in June and September and retain their once-a-month schedule for July and August. The aim of the summer sched- ule changes is to cut down on the business backlog which oc- curs when the aldermen meet 'only once a month for four con- 'seculive summer months. The so-called "vacation" schedule has been in effect for decades. Coming up for a first reading under new business is a resolu- tion to convey water rights the city has over land on Broad Street owned by Alexander E. Maynard and Gerald Q.

Old Business Under-, old business the alder- men will consider measures to: land on Seventh Street North (Extended) and'.at Textile Field for recreational purposes. The land is already being used for recreational pur- poses by the Park Recreation Department but was never for- mally put under the depart- ment's jurisdiction.

The nomination has been recommended for con- firmation by the appointments committee.- Under communications, t h e.} aldermen will read letters from U.S. Sens. Thomas J. Mclnlyre W-HOUR WEEK Page cording of "Going Back to Hous- ton." "The burn was absolutely Stafford reported. "And we've got an absolutely beautiful view of the moon." The astronauts beamed the view to earthlings, pointing their color television camera out the window to capture the desolate desert satellite reced- ing in the distance. They panned the camera across the surface and showed a clear view of the horizon with thousands of jagged craters in the foreground. "Fantastic incredible the astronauts uttered over and over again as they watched the moon grow smaller; Viewers on earth could agree. "That thing is getting rounder and rounder .and smaller and smaller all the Cernan said. Within an hour, the full disk ol the moon was visible, but the astronauts used their zoom Jens to zero in on particular features. Several times they showed features in the Sea of Tranquili- ty where two American astro- nauts hope to land in July. Staf- ford and Young had cleared the way for that landing Thursday when they (lew a fragile lunar landing vehicle to within 9.4 miles of the surface to certify the touchdown site. Stafford showed two adjacent dry plain areas, noting one was "chocolate brown in color and the other tannish brown." Not- ing the stark darkness of sgace, the Apollo 10 commander said: "The moon is set against the blackest black you ever saw. It's a jet black."

I hope that what we're doing here and what's going to go on in the fu- ture is going to be something that's going to be a betterment to all mankind."

The buildup is described by Far Eastern intelligence offi- cials and visible to the visitor in' the few areas still open to travel. Under a stringent secu- rity blanket that now covers virtually alt ol Siberia east o! Novosibirsk, heavy troop move- ments have reinforced all ele- Soviet- Fir'_ East- ern Command. Between Soviet soldiers, in- cluding elements equipped with rockets, have been introduced into Mongolia.

Normal Siberian travel by diplomats, foreign military at- taches and journalists has been generally banned by the Soviet authorities since the U s s u r i Hiver clashes with the Chinese in March. The ban was first imposed on travel to Khabarov- the key Soviet city on the Amur Eiver. It has 'since been extended to Irkutsk and the Lake Baikal region. 35 Residents Attend Hearing On Million City Budget By CLAUDETTE DUROCHER True to form, the public hear- ing on the municipal budget conducted by the Board of Al- dermen at the Crou'ley School auditorium last night drew a sparse attendance. About 35 residents were pres- ent to discuss the record million budget which is.-up by 51.58 million. After the hearing, Alderman- ic President Maurice L. Arel said he still plans to call the aldermen to a final budget ses- sion before the budget is put up for final approval. He said this would mean (hat the final budget approval will be considered at (lie June 10 aldcrmanic session, with no ac- tion to be taken on it at next Tuesday's session. Most of the hearing was dominated by a perennial trio of budget interrogators: .lay Cutler, James Lagios and WqJC-. gang Eschholz. Several newcomers to budget hearings look Hie opportunity lo enlighten themselves on the ba- sic operations of certain de- partments. Sewer KvtcMision Two residents of the Broad- acres area were especially at- tentive to the sewer extension allocations in the Public Work's department budget. But there were no promises, made that any of the funds were ear- marked to relieve the drainage problems of (he Broadacres section. In commenting on his previ- ous complaints about the lack of sufficient cruisers for his de- partment, Police Chief Paul J. Tracy disclosed he was np.w happy with tire transportation situation in his department. The mayor, he explained, has allowed for (lie purchase of one additional cruiser two cars wore instead of being turned in when replacement cars .were bought and a new federally-financed safety van is on its way. As expected, the ?4.000 raise {or Supt. of Schools Edmund M. Keefe was questioned. Dr. Norman W. Crisp, Board of Educaiion chairman, replied Keefe got the raise on merit and in consideration of the scope of his responsibilities and the size of the school system. At S22.000, the city is getting a bargain in bavins Keefe as superintendent, Crisp said, adding, the job was worth at least Jlifl.OOO a year. County Commissioner Ar- mand A. Beaulieu, candidate for mayor, questioned Mayor Dennis J. Sullivan on several points. One was why Sullivan didn't lump all of his expenses for of- fice help in one category to give a clear picture of funds spent to staff the mayor's office. Sullivan said part-time cleri- cal help for the mayor's office had usually been lumped in the part-time and overtime account of other City Hall per- sonnel but that Beaulieu's sug- gestion had merit. He said he did not know off- hand how much money was ex- pended on an annual basis for clerical help in his office and remorkcd he had been so busy trying to clarify budget break- downs in other departments he had overlooked compiling a budget breakdown for his own department. Arel conducted the lengthy session for which 11 of the 15 aldermen were present. Absent were Aldermen Robert, A. Dion, Richard P. Joyce, Charles E. Thoroux and Sherman Horton Jr. who is convalescing from surgery. Briefly discussed was the Park-Recreation Department's request for to build an enclosed swimming pool. Arel noted that the budget does not contain any funds for the proposed swimming pool and its construction would re- quire a-bond issue, subject tfl discussion and approval sepa-, rate from regular budget .ap- proval procedures. City, State Officials Hope To Unsnarl Park Plan Snags City and slate officials will meet Monday afternoon in the mayor's office in an attempt to unsnarl snags which have de- veloped over federal funding for purchase of land to. establish the proposed Nashua River-Ca- nal system. Spcuking of the latest develop- ments in the proposed purchase at the budget hearing last nighl. Aldermanic Presi- dent Maurice L. Arel voiced op- timism that funding problems would be straightened out. He said Roger J. Crowloy, head of the stale Department of Resources and Economic Planning, is working on obtain- ing a waiver from the federal government to allow the city to finance the acquisition as orig- inally-planned. Arel said the Nashua -.New Hampshire Foundation 'trustees also are ready to call a meet- ing to consider alternate financ- ing proposals if Crowley is un- successful in obtaining a waiver. Crow'ley is to meet with city officials Monday to jnform them on progress in obtaining the waiver which would allow city lo nblain a match- ins grant in a lump sum while tho city's share for the purchase is spread out over five-year period. ;
