(UPI) - Surveyor 5 returned additional "excellent quality" pictures of itself and the lunar terrain today while its unique radiation device analyzed the chemical content of the moon's soil. The rugged, three - legged spacecraft soft - landed in the moon's Sea of Tranquility Sun - i day night despite serious trou - : bles in its fuel system. The controlling Jet Propulsion: Laboratory (JPL) here released; two more of the vehicle's photo graphs Monday night, one of which showed its jewel cas - sized radioactive box resting on the surface. Delighted JPL officials said Surveyor 5 had returned several hundred pictures and was ex pected to transmit "well over a thousand or more." Spokesmen said information on the soil analysis experiment was oeing transmuted to eartn in the form of numerical data Any conclusions as to the chem ical makeup of the soil would come after careful examination of at least 24 hours o the data, they added. The gold - plated box five inches deep, six inches long and six inches wide was lowered on a nylon line from Surveyor to the surface, which it bombards with radioactive alpha particles. Scientists said they can deter mine the chemical content by measuring the velocity of the reflection of the particles. "If the experiment succeeds it will mark the first time that man has been able, by direct contact, to analyze the composi tion of any celestial body," said Dr. Robert' L. Roderick of the Hughes Aircraft Co., which built the device with the help of Uni versity of Chicago scientists.

The conditions are ideal Eor reintensuication and it's just a matter of time before Beulah regains its strength, when it does, it will probably come back even stronger," Simpson warned.

The toll on Haiti's remote southwestern fishing coast, where flooding from mountain streams and storm tides is the worst danger, probably won't be known for several days. Spokesmen for the United States embassies, in Haiti and the Dominican Republic said to day no word had been received from the remote southern coast of Haiti or the Barahona Peninsula of the Dominican Republic. Neither government, however, has requested U.S. aid, which is an indication that Beulah did not deal too severe a blow to these areas. Simpson said Beulah's center was expected to pass south of Jamaica later today, but cau tioned that "it is still too early to relax precautions there. At noon EDT, Beulah was centered near latitude 17.2 north' and longitude 7C.8 west was about .80 miles east - wouth of Kingston and near ly 700 miles south - southeast of Miami.

He said differences about the methods of settling certain problems could easily disappear. The spokesman said Ochab, in a final, 50 - mjnute session, had told de Gaulle that his visit "exceeded the results we hoped for" and opened a new stage in Polish - French relations.
