Forks man on Apollo tracking ship in Pacific Scrutinizing a visitor Blaine McCutchan, H. W. Buckingham watch mystery turtle Whaf's a turtle doing inSequim? SEQUIM — Blaine McCutchan, Route 3, found a turtle wander, ing around his front yard the other day and it led him to wonder where it came from and how it got there. After some research on the part of McCutchan, H. W. Buck, ingham and Park Biologist Bruce Moorehead, it was decided the turtle must be native to the south central part of theUnitedStatcs. The species is probably ter- raphene triunguis, they figured. The color of the turtle is olive green and its back Is covered with indistinct yellow spots.The head and neck arebrightorange. The plastron is hinged, indicating it is a box turtle. The feet had three toes. How the turtle camp to this part of the country and how it got to the McCutchan ranch is a mystery. Perhaps it is some, one's lost pet, and then again maybe she just finished a long trip. n she traveled this far it must have seemed like going to the moon to a turtle.

Low, manager of Apollo spacecraft program, inspects sealed box of rock samples from moon flown from carrier Hornet in Pacific to Houston Space Center. - Associated Press photo. Exotic isolation awaits spacemen SPACK CENTER, Houston G\P)— An exotic, space age isolation ward where a ping pong game may be the big event of tin-- day awaits the first men back from the moon. Without a second of exposure to the outside world, Neil A. Armstrong, Edwin E. Aldrin Jr. and Michael Collins will be transferred from the mobile trailer they are now in to the relative luxury of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration's new lunar receiving laboratory (LRL). The swap is scheduled for the early hours of Sunday. Fifteen people will live in the LRL until a quarantine ends Aug. 12 — the three spacemen, three doctors and nine scientists and technicians. They will jab the spacemen with needles, question them about their epic voyage and make them pedal stationary bicycles until they're exhausted. There will be 1C days of this routine for tlie space voyagers alter they arrive here from their landing in the Pacific. Some scientists fear theastro- luuus may be carriers of deadly "frills from the moon, although there's not a scientist in the .space agency who really thinks the moon lias germs or any other type of life. But they cannot bi- sure and hence the quarantine. "It's really kind of an Insurance program," says Dr. William Kemmerer, director of the preventive medicine branch at thu Manned Spacecraft Center. The astronauts will fly to Houston in the silver trailer they now are in aboard the USS Hornet, the recovery carrier that picked thorn up in the Pacific, 950 miles southwest of Ha- \vali, Thursday. The carrier will !'.t>t to Hawaii Saturday, and the astronauts and trailer will be flown to Texas from there. Each astronaut and eacli of the three doctors staying with them will have a bedroom and an office. There is a joint conference room. A dormitory is provided for the nine other persons clois« tered with the astronauts. The lounge and dining area has a view of an adjoining park, ing lot. Adjacent to the lounge is an exercise area where the astronauts may lift weights, pull on exercisers, or play ping pong. The trailer also has a color television set, a telephone, and a big window and intercom for the astronauts to visit with their families. At one end of the dining area is a kitchen many housewives would envy. It has a microwave oven to heat frozen foods quickly, a gas range, a sink and a huge freezer. Aside from these areas, the four-story lab is a labryinlh of medical and other scientific facilities. The medical equipment in the crew reception area is extensive enough to handle most emergencies. In the event of a medical emergency too serious to be handled in the LRL, Dr. Kern- merer said, "The lives of the astronauts take precedence over the quarantine." If an astronaut, or any of the 12 others quarantined in the laboratory with them, develops an illness, the doctors' first step will be to determine if it came back from the moon or is an ordinary eartli4x>rn sickness. Life in the quarantine is expected to be very businesslike, with tests and debriefing taking up most of the time. But a lighter moment can be expected on Aug. 5. It's Neil Armstrong's birthday. Vancouver Island man hero as Apollo doctor LAKE COWICHAN, B.C. (AP) — Rill Carpentier was the hero of this Vancouver Island village Tluirsd.ty as he huddled aboard a i T .S. aircraft carrier thousands of miles away with the men from the moon. The local boy who made good bv working his way through the University of British Columbia as a steward and deckhand aboard coastal ferries and^tug. Uuts is the toast of tiny Lake C( wichan (population 2,353) and elated residents are swamping his mother with telephone calls lolling how proud they are. Dr. William Carpentier, 33, now a space physician with the U.S. National Aeronautics and Space Administration, is one of a select few locked in a small in nbile quarantine trailer aboard the USS Hornet with the moon- walking Apollo 11 astronauts. His job, which started as soon as the moon men were whisked aboard the carrier after splash- (j,,wn in the Pacific, was to give them their first medicals. He will stay in strict quarantine with them for two weeks in the portable center and back at spare headquarters in Houston, Tex ''Boy, it sure was a big day," gasped Dr. Carpentier's mother, Mrs. Lydia Kuores, af. ter she watched the splashdown and recovery on television in the living room of her home here Thursday. "I've been watching the whole thing right from the beginning but the biggest thrill was when I actually saw Bill on TV. "I just couldn't believe it but there he was. When the astro, nauts got onto the carrier and walked inside the quarantine chamber there was Bill walking right behind them. "I got a real good look at him and then the phone started ringing and it hasn't stopped since. I'm so happy, I really can't tell people how happy and proud I am." The son of a Lake Cowichan mill worker who died in I960, Bill Carpentier studied aviation medicine after graduating and then joined NASA's space raedi- cine branch because, as he said, "this is where the action is." He volunteered for his present assignment. "I always knew he would make it as a doctor but, my goodness, I never dreamed such a wonderful day as this was going to come," his mother said.
