I A MILES 0 50 100 BRITT By FRANK WRIGHT Minneapolis Tribune Staff Correspondent WASHINGTON, D.C. President Nixon's Safeguard antiballistic missile (ABM) defense system, the center of the biggest debate of the nuclear age, survived its long-awaited Senate showdown by just one vote Wednesday. In a long afternoon of cloakroom maneuvering and sometimes harsh words, the President's plan to begin deployment of Safeguard's radars, computers and antiballistic missiles on sites in North Dakota and Montana barely managed to stay alive as opponents' efforts to block it failed twice by the slimmest of margins, first 50 to 50 and " later 51 to 49. Both moves would have restricted further expenditures to research and development and prevented actual con- ; struction. The 50-to-50 vote came on I an amendment by Sen. Mar-jgaret Chase Smith, R-Maine, to a $20-billion military procurement bill that allocates $759 million to Safeguard for ! fiscal 1970. i nc lie j mucu uie aiiicuu- ment because it needed 51 votes, or a majority of those present, to pass. Vice-President Spiro T. Ag-new, presiding officer of the Senate, voted against the amendment to break the tie, but his vote was superfluous. The 51-to-49 vote came on a similar amendment offered by Sens. Philip Hart, D-Mich., and John Sherman Cooper, R-Ky. THE VOTES climaxed a controversy that has occupied the country since Mr. Nixon first unveiled in March his proposal to begin building the first phase of an ABM system intended to defend the United States' B52 bomber bases and Minuteman intercontinental missile in stallations against enemy at tack. the deployment near Grand Forks, N.D., and Great Falls. Mont., would be the first in what would eventual ly become a nationwide net work costing a minimum of $6 billion to $8 billion. Not since the House extended the draft by one vote in 1941 has a major military proposal been so seriously Moon Dust Has Organic Materia Surtax Foes Lose Bid to Eliminate Levy WASHINGTON, D.C. Aroused taxpayers may de stroy the U.S. income tax system unless special privileges are erased from the revenue code, the House was told Wednesday as it opened a historic tax reform debate. A vote is expected today on a mammoth bill combining a $6.8-billion shutdown of tax preferences with a promise of $9.2-billion tax relief, largely for low and middle income recipients. Opponents of the income tax surcharge lost their bid to knock out of the measure a provision extend ing the levy at 5 percent for the first six months ot 19 u. A 265-145 vote on a procedural question blocked any opportunity for general amendments to the bill. Rea Charles A. Vanik, D- Ohio, unsuccessfully pleaded for a chance to otter an amendment deleting the surtax provision, which the Nixon administration has urgently advocated as an anti-inflation weapon. The vote, nevertheless, demonstrated again the unpopularity of the surtax among Democrats.

John Stennis, D-Miss., ABM By WALTER SULLIVAN New York Times Service PASADENA, Calif. Evidence of organic material has been found in two separate samples of moon dust. In one case the proportion was 126 parts per million. In the other it was 30 parts per million, according to informants within the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA). THE DISCOVERY has sent a wave of excitement through the team of scientists study ing specimens brought back from the Sea of Tranquillity by the Apollo 11 astronauts. (OTHER Apollo News-Page Two.) It implies that the synthe sis ot organic compounds similar to that which takes place in living organisms has occurred on the moon. It also means that on the moon it may be possible to unravel the early stages of chemical evolution that, in more favorable circumstances, lead to the spontaneous appearance of life.

Where some meteorites of this class contain from 3 to 5 percent hydrocarbon, this one showed only about 30 parts per million comparable to the moon sample with the lower hydrocarbon content. Under what circumstances these hydrocarbons have been synthesized beyond the earth is a long - standing mystery. According to informants close to the analysis of the moon samples, there is a fear that at least some of the observed organic material might be contamination, despite stringent efforts to Moon i Continued on Page Six in Steiner's cabin when the tornado hit. According to R e y n o 1 d s, there was a "quick, heavy wind then it was all over." Steiner landed 100 feet away, the railing from his front stoop in his hand. Reynolds crawled out from beneath some wreckage, but he remembers little about the tornado's aftermath. Both men suffered scrapes and bruises, but apparently were in good condition.

"Oh my God, it's a mess up here! There's 11 or 12 dead that we know of by now, at least one square mile where there's not a tree standing, totally devastated, completely demolished." Thomas Wensen, reporter for the Crosby - Ironton Courier, had just returned Wednesday night from the shores of Roosevelt Lake, where a tornado hit about 5 p.m. Wednesday, and he poured out the story of what he'd seen: "ON THE west side of Roosevelt Lake we know for sure there's two dead, a couple from Iowa staying at Simmons Log Cabin Resort. Floyd Simmons himself sold the place last year and moved into a house about a block away. His house was picked up and carried clear across the lake. "She (the tornado) just plowed right across the lake and the heavy damage was on the east side. I went up the Hwy. 6 route and as we got up there near where Outing had been we started to see wind damage trees down here and there. "Then we got to the eastern shore. Just incredible, terrible! "There's nothing left. It was a heavily wooded area there, very pretty. All gone. There's a little village, it's actually in Crooked Lake Township, Cass County, but they had a post office there and called it Outing or New Outing. She came in there like a holy terror. "I TALKED to two fellows on an ambulance crew from Crosby. They were up there 15 minutes after it hit, they guessed. It's about 25 miles from Crosby.
