Ogden and Morton L. Ogden who have been serving ontthe local fire department for six months recently attended a. two day fire school on the theory and maintenance of their new fire apparatus at the John Bean Division factory and fire school, according, to Vern Cole, fire During this training course, the firemen fought, three types •of fires: "a burning building/ a burning oil pit and a burning chemical tank. . They were taught that high-" pressure fog breaks up into tiny fog droplets that smother a fire. This gives a fire truck with a 500 gallon tank the fire killing power' of a unit with a 5,000 gallon tank, in an area with a limited water supply. High-pressure fog also leaves little water damage in the burnt structure compared to.the conventional volume method of firefighting—pouring gallons of water until the fire is extinguished.

UPI Space Writer SPACE CENTER, - Houston (UPI)— Apollo 12's explorers, having set off. vibrations like "a gong in a belfry" by crashing their ,module-Intrepid on the • moon, went sightseeing in lunar orbit .today and snapped pic- - hires of future landing sites. ~ Their ".' threes-day, . quarter-"; . million-mile voyage back home was-scheduled to begin'at 3:49 p.m. EST when a blast'from. Yankee . Clipper's main engine gives', Charles "Pete" Conrad, Richard- F. Gordon and Alan L', Bean the speed necessary, for a South Pacific splashdown Monday. . •.':•'; The triumphant, pilots; were: eager to get back. -Conrad; asked if they had enoughjfuel to speed up the trip so they would return a day early, but ground controllers said no. "Ok, no. problem," said the veteran space commander. "No problem at all." . Less LRL /-• "That's one, less day in the LRL (Lunar Receiving. Laboratory) Ed (Gibson)," Conrad said, the astronauts . must remain in: quarantine in Houston until Dec, 10 to make certain they picked up on alien- germs'during their 1 '.i:. miles .of - hiking . on the dusty lunar! surface. Today's lunar, orbital flight was devoted to scouting potential landing sites for future Apoilo crews. On Yankee Clipper's ' 40th .pass," Conrad 'said, "We've got Dick working ' 'this pass.' ;.- ' .';' "Al and I are sightseeing, this is -really the first chance' . we've had to get a look aj.the moon. That backside doesn't look anything- like what we were on." Bean said the moon looks more spectacularj from orbit than it' does on the surface."You can seel ail these gigantic craters.

Dr. Maurice Ewing, one • of ; the project scientists, said "the duration was most surprising; just as many other things on the moon have been." .-"As. for the meaning of it • (the sustained vibrations), I'd rather not make an interpretation of it right now," he said. Conrad, Bean and Gordon woje up at .12:45 a.m. EST today after only four and one- half hours', sleep.; -. y Spent Time Cleaning / They had. been scheduled to sleep seven hours but they spent a long time housecleaning, particularly cleaning up the lunar dust Conrad and Bean tracked aboafd after. traipsing around the moon's craters. The" extra !day of orbital flight was added to. give the astronauts time to photograph , three potential landing sites of • high interest to scientists. The sites include the Fra Mauro -' formation Apollo 13 astronauts James E. - Lovell and •Fred W„. Haise are scheduled to explore after a launch from " Cape- Kennedy .scheduled for March 12. '.
