with an Egyptian proposal for a partial pullback of Israeli troops from Suez Canal There was concern at the United Nations in New York that a refusal by Premier Golda Meirs government would deadlock indirect peace negotiations being conducted by mediator Gunnar V Jar ring Diplomatic sources said France and the Soviet Union were pressing hard for accept ance The withdrawal was a condition set Thursday by President Anwar Sadat of Eg ypt to reopening the Suez closed since the 1967 war when Israel occupied the Sinai Desert to the canals banks Mrs Meir did not reject the plan in a taped American tele vision interview Friday but she said she didnt know why Sadat thinks that the opening of the canal is something he is giving to Israel would like the water way reopened with only one little she said If the canal is opened it should be opened also to Israeli ship In his speech announcing Egypts agreement to a one month truce extension Sadat made no specific reference to use of the canal by Israeli ships But since it has con trolled the waterway Egypt never has permitted Israeli craft to use it The position of Egypt after the 1967 war with Israel was that the canal would not be reopened until all Israeli troops were withdrawn from the entire Sinai The 100milelong strip of water linking the Red Sea to the Mediterranean is blocked by ships sunk during the six day war Sources in Jerusalem said Mrs Meir held private meet ings Friday with Defense Min ister Moshe Dayan Foreign Minister Abba Eban and Dep uty Premier Yigal Allon Cabi net ministers were silent about Sadats

BENEDICT AP Aerospace Writer SPACE CENTER Houston AP Apollo 14s explorers completed mans longest moon walk today but a gasping struggle to climb a steep slope halted them short of a prime goal the rim of a crater named Cone Alan B Shepard Jr and Edgar D Mit chell returned to the lunar lander Antares after 4Vz hours on the moon and prepared themselves and the ship to start the re turn voyage to earth The second walk lasted as long as the first one had on Friday Despite their disappointment in not reaching Cone Crater as part of their geological field trip they did gather ancient rocks dig trenches and sink core tubes four feet into the soil More than anything else however they wanted to reach the rim of Cone They had bet many of their fellow astronauts on earth that they could do it But as they climbed higher and higher on the long boulderstrewn slope they became more and more ex hausted They breathed heavily and their heart beats APOLLO 14 ASTRONAUTS HEAD HOME Apollo 14s Alan B

manmade moonquaKe to be recorded by two seismometers when it is sent crashing into the highlands of Fra Mauro It is expected at EST today after astronauts Alan B Shepard Jr and Ed gar D Mitchell use Antares to take them up from the moon to the orbiting command ship Kitty Hawk Crashes of discarded boost ers and spacecraft on earlier flights have been recorded by only one in strument left by the Apollo 12 crew in the Ocean of Storms in November 1969 Scientists expect far more useful data from Antares im pact since they not only will know where it crashed but can compare the seismic waves recorded by the new Apollo 14 seismometer with the Apollo 12 instruments readings The new seismometer is part of a nuclearpowered sci ence station Shepard and Mit chell set up Friday several hundred feet from Antares at Fra Mauro Shortly afterward the sta tion began radioing data to earth from instruments that included the seismometer gauges that measure charged particles in thelunar atmos phere and geophones that record small seismic waves in the lunar material just be neath the surface Antares was targeted to im pact midway between the two seismometers which are 107 miles apart The impact point is at the transition zone be tween the flat mare area of the Ocean of Storms and the rolling hills of the highlands where Shepard and Mitchell landed Seismologists hope seismic waves from the crash will lo See Page 2 Column 8 nearly doubled Mission Control advised them to stop about twothirds of the way up the 400foothigh moon mountain Thats the order of the Shepard lamented Its farther

television record ing his moves Shepard took out two golf balls he had smuggled to the moon and whacked them with a golf club shaped handle from his tool cart Then he took a spearlike part from a solar wind ex periment and hurled it like a javelin In the airless onesixth gravity of the moon the ob jects really traveled It goes miles and miles and Shepard said Mitchell re marked But on mans first attempt to climb a moon mountain they immediately encountered trouble and had to alternately pull and carry their twowheel tool cart up the long grade making their way around rocks as large as 20 feet across They huffed and putted and stopped often for rest At one point about halfway up Shep ard doubted they could make it Aw gee whiz lets give it a Mitchell urged I See Page 2 Column 1 THEIR

play more when he gets back from this Harden said He said he didnt see Shep ards lunar links action but I had an idea he might try it I didnt know he was going to be able to pull it Harden explained that a friend of Shepards who was working on the deal with him approached him before launch and said Shepard was experimenting with the idea I designed this golf club head a No 6 iron to fit on the handle of one of his Harden said And I suppose he took some golf balls I have him from off my driving Inside Today Dear Local 11 ;
