Passed by a vote of 51-0 and sent to the House, the $16 billion education bill could revitalize the nation's universities and colleges Apollo Flying In Right On B New York Times Service HOUSTON The Apollo 15 astronauts sped closer to Earth Friday wlbh such precise aim that, for the first time, no mldcourse rocket maneuver Is considered necessary before the splashdown this afternoon. The spacecraft, Endeavour, is scheduled to touch down in the Pacific Ocean 325 miles north of Hawaii at 4:46 p.m. (EDT). The USS Okinawa, a helicopter carrier, is standing by for the recovery. IDEAL WEATHER conditions are forecast for the splashdown. Lt. (jg) Charles Swan, meteorologist aboard the Okinawa, said weather in the recovery area should be about the same as Friday -82-de-gree temperatures, light seas, and winds of 11 to 15 mph. Col. David R. Scott, Lt. Ool. James B. Irwin and Maj. Alfred M. Worden of the Air Force were reported to be rested and In good health as the end of their 12-day mission drew near. Gerald D. Griffin, the flight director, said, at a news conference here Apollo l15's accuracy was "somewhat amazing." In all previous Apollo lunar flights, the spaceship has had to make at least one or two course corrections with its small maneuvering rockets to line up on the 30-mile-wide re-entry "corridor" and come down at the proper angle. If the spaceship's angle of approach is too shallow, the vehicle could skip off the atmosphere, much like a stone across water, and go back Into space. IF THE ANGLE is too steep, the men and the spacecraft could be destroyed by the Jarring ride into the atmosphere. At ' 5:04 p. m.

Of the ancient, crystaline rock they found on the slope of the Apennine Mountains, Scott said that lt was a "small fragment sitting on top of a dark brown and large fragment, almost like a pedestal." "It was sitting there," Scott recalled, "like it was waiting for us." The rock, which some scientists believe may be a fragment of the early lunar crust, is probably the most prized object in the 175-pound cargo of rocks and soil being returned by Apollo 15.

Until Friday afternoon's sales pres Jobless Rolls Increase, But So Does Employment WASHINGTON (AP) Both the nation's total employment and jobless rate rose In July because more high school and college youths flooded into the economy than could find jobs, the government said Friday. Most of the 1.2 million gain in jobs was among teen-agers, and they also suffered the biggest rise in unemployment in the usual Jobless Pay Claims High The Cincinnati Branch, Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland, reports that continued unemployment compensation claims at the Ohio Bureau of Employment Services totaled 13,129 for the week ended July 28. This is the highest level since March 7, 1964, and is an increase of 7536 over the same week a year ago. Tax Polluting Plants, Nixon Urges Congress WASHINGTON (UPI) The Nixon administration Friday estimated environmental cleanup costs at $105 billion over six years and said factories should have to pay for polluting as they pay for electricity and gas. PRESIDENT NIXON in a letter to Congress accompanying the annual report of his Council on Envi-ronmental Quality, cautioned against pollution controls so strict they would risk "bankrupting the very taxpaying enterprises which must pay for the social advances the nation seeks." The council, however, said pollution at Its present level costs more than the programs to curtail lt. For air pollution curbs, "It will cost $4.7 billion annually to relieve the country of costs totaling $18 billion annually," council chairman Russell E. Train told a news conference. Train said the $16 billion estimate includes air pollution damages to health, vegetation, materials and property values. He said water pollution costs Americans additional billions of dollars a year. The council said antipollution enforcement should continue with the added imposition of effluent AP Wiraphofo Working For Nothing-And Happy MARGARET TRAINOR, after 20 years on welfare, got her first part-time job this month happily working for the New York City Department of Highways without salary.

Employment for men rose more than 100,000 to a record high of 46.4 million and the White House described the report as indicating generally good news. . "THE PRESIDENT thinks it's good news," said White House Press Secretary Ronald L. Ziegler, adding "We still have work to do." But Democratic National Chairman Laurence F. O'Brien said, "The Nixon Administration's head-in-the-sand approach to the nation's economy continues to take its deadening toll in the lives of millions of Americans." "There is no indication of any recovery," said Sen. Hubert H. Humphrey, Mr. Nixon's Democratic opponent In 1968 and again a potential contender. While total unemployment dipped 160,000 to 5.3 million, the big rise in the army of summer jobseekers swelled the labor force and, with the Bureau of Labor Statistics' adjustment for seasonal factors, pushed the national jobless rate up from 5.6 to 5.8 of the work force. Zeigler and Director George P. charges on industries involved. Under this system, a factory's discharges would be metered. The more a plant pollutes, the more it would pay. "Such charges would make it cheaper to stop polluting than to continue," Train said. The council called pollution charges "a 24-hour automatic enforcer." The Senate Air and Water Pollution Subcommittee approved a water cleanup bill Thursday that does not include such a plan, although it would require factories to pay for treatment of their wastes by local sewage plants. The subcommittee chairman, Sen. Edmund S. Muskie ID-Maine)- has opposed effluent charges. IN HIS LETTER, Mr. Nixon said "the goal of a cleaner environment will not be achieved by rhetoric or moral dedication alone." "While the costs are high, they are well within the capacity of the American economy to meet," Train said. "They're far lower than the normal wage increases- we deal with each year. They're lower than the costs of occupational health and safety, social security and other things we've built into our economy over the years." continued losses at the Cincinnati and Pittsburgh stations, to conserve the holding company's working capital and improve overall earnings.

"I THINK CERTAINLY that we are seeing some decline in the unemployment rate. But I immediately want to say unemployment is too high and the President wants to see it come down," Shultz said. Uncle Sam Puts Ax To His Payroll WASHINGTON (UPI) The administration took steps Friday to save about $175 million this year in federal white-collar salaries by assigning lower Job classification to new employees. "Wage policy should begin at home," George P. Shultz, director of the Office of Management and Budget, told newsmen during a briefing explaining the new directive. Federal salaries have risen sharply in recent years through congressional "comparability" laws that seek to insure that a federal employee would make comparable wages to what a private sector worker earned for the same kind of a job. Shultz said the level of federal white-collar pay in recent years also has shown "excessive escalation" through promotion to higher grades, known in the government as GS (general schedule) ratings. He ordered all federal agencies to lower the average level of grades by assigning lower GS ratings when positions are filled by new employees. Shultz said the reductions would be done through attrition and that no present employees would be reduced in grade or salary or lose their jobs because of his order.
