SPACE (Continued from Page One) Propulsion Laboratory, said the target was near the lunar equator in the Ocean of Storms, north northwest of the crater Flamsleed. The coordinates are 3.25 south longitude and 43.83 degrees west latitude. This is considered a possible landing area for American astronauts expected to rocket toward the moon within three years. Parks said first priority for the Surveyor camera would be pictures of two of the foot pads to determine any damage or whether they sank into any. lunar dust. These and about 10 oilier photos of the surrounding landscape would be transmitted with a 200- line resolution system, Parks said. Then a high-gain antenna was to be raised to permit transmission of clear photos with 600-line resolution. Home television has 525 lines. Parks said the spacecraft was equipped to send hundreds of pictures — with its camera geared to reach to infinity — during the 12 days it was expected to be in daylight. Once a lunar night - equivalent to 14 earth days — falls, the spacecraft could survive only a few hours in the 300-degree-below zero temperature. It would no longer be able to draw power from the sun and does not have enough on-board battery power to provide thermal protection against the extreme temperature. However, this would be no problem during lunar daylight - during which temperatures rise to 350 degrees above zero because the craft's solar cells are geared to. convert th sun's r«yi to energy. , from a cemetery in preparation for Memorial Day. Murder Suspect Returns To Marion, Ind, Glenn Stewart, 30, said goodby to a tearful wife Sunday and was taken to Marion, Ind., to face charges in a murder which police say may have been the result of a love triangle. Stewart, who was captured last Tuesday after a day-long manhunt in the swamp bottoms near here, is charged in the dismemberment slaying of Larry Lee Schmidt, 30, a fellow factory worker at Marion, May 8. Mrs. Schmidt, also charged with murder in the slaying, told told officers at Sparta, Tenn., where she has relatives, that she was held captive two days in her home early this month after her husband was murdered. She said she was then brought with her two children to near Arkadelphia, that she and the children escaped while her abductor slept, and made their way to Sparta. She was charged with first degree murder after returning to Marion to aid police in invesfi gation of the slaying. Stewart, who denies killing anyone, was captured by two Arkansas state troopers as he walked out of a section of woods near here last Tuesday. He offered no resistance through armd with a loaded rifle and pistol. Stewart said he was on his way to give himself up, The manhunt began Tuesday morning after Stewart was home near here, sighted leaving his father's Stewart was taken from the Officers said Regina L.

Education Laboratory Coming WASHINGTON (AP) — The South tional Central Region Educa- Laboratory, a coopera tive project affecting six states, will be established in Little Rock under a $180,705 contract from the U. S. Office of Education. The contract, announced Sunday, was among six in the nation totaling $1.1 million for newly formed groups to establish such laboratories. They will be comprised of as- socations of colleges, state departments of education, schools and other educational interests. The Little Rock laboratory will serve Arkansas, Mississippi, Northern Louisiana, Eastern Oklahoma, Southeastern Kansas and Southeastern Missouri. The laboratory will work to foster innovation and improvement of education at all levels, the federal office said.

The office said that groups receiving laboratory development funds will make reports on progress by Sept. 1. A short time later, a decision will be made whether further federal financial support will be given for the laboratories, it added. Siamese Twins Die CHARLOTTE, N.C.

Harrigan and Detective Sgt. Richard Griener. Dead God Dirty Joke LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP). The president of Southern Bap tist Theological Seminary says the "God is Dead" movement is a fad that evolved from "a little game for an 'in' group ;of the ologians." In a tongue-in-cheek article in the seminary's news magazine The Tie, Dr. Duke K. McCall suggested a "Devil is Alive" movement to counter the death of God theory. "Perhaps the attempted humor of this article is in bad taste," Dr. McCall wrote, "but, then, this whole 'death of God' movement is a dirty joke."
