The announcement on P.rov, ton-4 said 12.5 tons of the ap-1 proximately 17-ton payload was made up of scientific equipment. Radio reports from the craft indicated the equipment was working normally, it added. Proton-4 is said to be circling the earth every 91.75 minutes at altitudes ranging from 307.6 to 158.4 miles. Launchings of previous Proton payioads indicated the Russians then had the world's most .powerful rocket. These payioads ranged from the 12.2 tons for Proton-1 in July 1965 to the 14 tons of Proton-3 a year later. probe was expected to approach the earth around noon today. U.S. officials expressed belief the rocket which threw Proton-4 Jrsto orbit had about the same weight-lifting capacity as the U.S. Saturn IB, which lofted the Apollo 7 manned spacecraft Into orbit in October.

It came amid a series of recent Soviet space shots which Western scientists say could be building up to a Soviet attempt to send men around the moon before America's Apollo 8 attempt at Christmas time.
