"We have a wave off," ground controllers told John W. Young and Charles M. Duke Jr. just 25 minutes before they were to steer the lunar craft Orion, to a landing in the moon's unexplored mountains. The problem posed no danger to the three astronauts. It cropped up when, Thomas K. Mattingly II, alone in the command ship Casper, reported he was unable to fire the craft's engine, because a secondary circuit on a thrust control device did not come up to specifications during a check. ! Only minutes earlier, the ground had advised Young and Duke to "anticipate a wave off." They had separated Orion from Casper two hours earlier and were preparing to fire their engine to start the descent to the surface. They had-checked out all systems, and except for a few minor problems, every thing was-working well. The landing had been set for 8:41 p.m. EST. "We're sailing free," Young reported as the separated spaceships came around the edge of tile. moon. They had separation minutes earlier on Before Landing :he backside out of radio communications. "The only thing bad is that I ol a lap full of orange juice," Young quipped. T h e a s t r o n a u t s awoke 'charging hard," Matlingly said, getting ready for their big day.

(Tribune photo by Mike Peters) In Presidential Panel Report Tax Credits, Tuition Grants Urged for Nonpublic Schools DENVER (AP) - Colorado's legislative reapportionment, already one of the longest battles ever foughl by a General Assembly in the state, apparently will go back to the Colorado Supreme Court at least one more time. Legislative leaders, still reel- Ing from Ihe high court rejection of the plan adopted two months ago, indicated that one way or another the case will come before the courts when a new plan is adopted. Some lawmakers want lo ask the court lo reconsider its finding that the districts set up Ihis year violate the slate constitution because they are not compact in area as possible. They hope for a clarification of several points in the decision, which was handed down less Inside The Tribune (40 Pages) Abby ..-_ Amusements Boyle column 29 _ 30-31 _... 28 ,, 35-38 28 Classified pages -Comics Crossword. 28 Editorial page Heloise .

The lawmakers submitted an nferrogatory to the court last January when they were faced vith a question on Arapahoe county enclaves inside Denver's borders and what legislative districts they should be placed n. The court ruled that the enclaves must be included in dis- :ricfs with the territory surrounding them, regardless of county borders. Make Clear Democrats who brought the successful challenge to the republican-sponsored rcapporlion- nent system made it clear thai :hey will go back into the Supreme Court with a suit if any new legislative redistricting plan is limited to 18 of the !« districts pointed out hy the court as examples of the lack of sufficient compactness. Some lawmakers want to seek a clarification of the court's statement. It said in its decision, "we have concludec that the districts as establishes do not comply with the con stitutional standard of com pactness but in several in stances substantially depar therefrom." Some legislative leaders rea the listing .of the 18 districts as a hint from the tribunal that i those were repaired the plan would be approved. Others fel they were only cited lo give the lawmakers an insight into the kind of districting which the justices considered bad, y granting tax credits to parents for tuition payments .and straight tuition grants to wel- are families using nonpublic schools. ' In a 58-page report presented o President h'ixon, the four- member group set forth these and other recommendations certain to stir controversy if only because of the lorigsland- ng church-state issue. Nixon is on record as favor- ng aid to parochial and other lonpublic schools but has cau- ioned that programs must meet constitutional tests. The report is expected to form the asis for administration consideration of the question. The group, the President's Panel on Nonpublic Education, :old- Nixon if had looked carefully into the constitutional issue and was convinced "that although direct aid to nonpublic schools is prohibited, aid to parents and to children will pass judicial muster." Nixon received the reporl Reds Almost Admit South Invasion HONG KONG (AP) - North Vietnam came close again today to admitting its troops had invaded South Vietnam. Hanoi's Communist party newspaper defended the Soviel Union against President Nixon's criticism that Russian ale lo North Vielnam was helping the offensive. Nhan Dan said il was the "sacred duly of al Vietnamese to fight againsl the U.S. aggressor in Vietnam" and "the right of the Soviet Union to exercise its Internationa duties as a Socialist country to support and, aid all .Vietnamese people who are fighting U.S. aggression in Vietnam" On April 11, Hanoi's officia Vielnam News Agency said: "Wherever (here are U.S. aggressors on Vietnamese territory, all Vietnamese have the right and the duty to fight againsl them lo defend (he independence and freedom o their fatherland." 'rom panel chairman Clarence "!. Walton, president of Catholic University. In a- letter fo Nixon, Walton said : nonpublic schools,-parlicu- arly;.those operated by-the Roman Catholic Church, face a crisis situation with enrollments falling and costs rising. . If nothing is done, he said, he system will fall apart "and public schools will have fo absorb millions of American slu- denfs" with the burden falling most heavily on debt-heavy slates with large populations and major urban centers. Enrollments in nonpublic schools currently exceed 5.2 million pupils. Should they Iw forced fo shu down. Walton said, "then w o u l d be especially serious consequences for poor and low er middle-class families in ra cially changing neighborhood: where Ihe nearby nonpublii school-is an indispcnsible stabl lizing factor."

By JESSICA;FRAZ!ER Tribune Sfarf Writer "The only power you can count on is the organized, intle- lendcnt movements of the American people," said Linda Jenncss in a discussion Wednesday · afternoon with Greeley Mayor Richard Perchlik. The discussion on socialism was heard by some 200 to 300 persons in the University Center Ballroom where moderator Ford Cleere toltl students, "This is your event. Use your minds '.o find out some important questions." Candidate for President M r s . Jenncss, Socialist Worker's Party candidate for the presidency, said, "We conceive changes brought about from movements and fighls brought about by Americans themselves." She said the established pplilieal parlies are unresponsive to changes Americans wart made. Even George McGovcrn, she said, tells people to stop their own movements and join the Democratic Parly. In comparison, she said of the S o c i a l i s t Worker's Parly (SWP), "We don't tell women they have lo be socialist to fighl for women's liberation. We say 'Right on and 'we're with you.' Our program is based on mass movements." Perchlik, chairman of Ihe UNC political science dcparl- menl, conceded thai the eslab ished parties have often failed o-respond to the desires of Iho American people. 'fl'm disenchanted with Ihc Democratic Party at this mo- m*nl, bul sec no heller parly ''lable. In 1084 I worked very for Lyndon Johnson and betrayed," Perchlik said of Johnson's escalation'.if the Viet- War. {' Suggeslt Reforms Bul Perchlik said election reforms and more citizen involvement on the grass rools level would correct much of the un- ·csponsivcncss. "I'm willing lo give Ihc Temocralic Party one mure chance," he sold. "I don'l t h i n k he KflciiilUl I'arly holds any idler hope . . . Any party when I becomes the dominrinl parly ·wcomcs r/omewhal corrupl; il would be Ihe same w i t h socialism." Perchlik said he agrees wilh some of Ihe social goals held by Mrs. Jenness but (Iocs not have the same anti-capitalist views. "It's an escape mechanism to say the country is controlled by a small group of corporate interests." lie said the basic problem is apathy on the p a r t of citizens and that the "capitalist system has nothing lo do wilh the Republican and Democratic parties not selecting good camii dates." The 31-year-oltI Mrs. Jenncss disagreed, noting lhat the U,S Treasury has reported lhat 2.2 per cent of Americans control over 87 per tent of (ho wealth in America and over half the wealth of the world. "Monopoly capitalism is the greatest concentration of wealth the history of Die world," said Mrs. Jenness, noling thai people wilh Hie money "say what Ihe money is fo bo used for. Thai il will be used for Ihc war in Vietnam instead of climiriaiiif; poverty, for space programs instead of child care. Capitalism and democracy are mutually exclusive." While Perchlik said he favors election reform, Mrs. Jenncss said, "Mayor Perchlik is saying that if enough good people get inside the Democratic Parly we can somehow Like it over nrxl make il more responsive. I think that's an impossibility . . . Candidates must eilher be millionaires themselves like a Rockefeller or a Kennedy or have a campaign platform acceptable lo the millionaires and capitalists so they will fund the campaign."
