Astronauts on Way to Hawaii ABOARD USS ' TICONDEROGA (AP) - Apollo. 16's moon heroes steamed toward Hawaii today after completing man's fifth moon-landing expedition, a journey that commander John W. Young said pushed back "the last real frontier, the frontier of the unknown." Young and fellow crewmen Charles M. Duke Jr. and Thomas K. Matlingly 11, were deposited on the deck of this carrbr Thursday after- a pinpoint splashdown in the.South Pacific. During welcoming ceremonies, Young said the mission was one of discovery that had uncovered basic . knowledge. Pushing back the "frontier of the unknown," he said, is "essential to the survival of humanity on this planet." President Nixon telephoned congratulations, promoting Duke to. the rank of Air Force colonel and Mattingly to commander in the Navy. Young, a Navy captain, was promoted after one of his three earlier space missions. All 'three were in excellent! health after their 11-day journey. The landing was 1,500 miles south of Hawaii, and the astro 1 nauls will stay aboard until the Ticonderoga moves early Saturday to within plane range. of Hawaii. They'll fly into Hickam Ail- Force Base at 2 p.m. EST and transfer to a C141 jet transport for the 8%-hour flight to Ellington Air Force Base' near the Manned Spacecraft Center, in Houston. They are to arrive at Ellington at 11 p.m.. Saturday.
