Russian space probe to land JODRELL BANK, England (A)') - Britain's Jodrell Bank Observatory reported Saturday night indications that the Soviet spaceship Zond 5 has re-entered the earth's atmosphere after circling the moon. British experts have predicted a Soviet attempt to land the capsule, adding success would give the Russians a big step forward in the man-to-the-moon race.

TO MEET GOAL Ing up "heaps o! extremely strong signals" earlier In the day. "If the Russian spacecraft is still In orbit we would have expected to have received further signals by this time," Lovell said at ' p.m. "Therefore we presume It has re-entered the earth's atmosphere— as we expected from our last contact." But Lovell stressed to newsmen: "We have no definite information at this time. We are acting on an assumption." He said the observatory was no longer attempting to track the Soviet moooshot, last reported tumbling toward the earth at 25,000 miles an hour. At that time it was over Antarctica and apparently less than 50,000 miles from the earth's surface. One British science expert said: "It's one thing for the spaceship to re-enter the earth's atmosphere. It's another thing to recover it successfully. News ol this achievement can only be disclosed by the Russians. If the recovery effort failed, we may never hear what really happened."

Texaco Inc. has created a new district with offices in Freeport to handle the planning and drilling of offshore oil wells, The Facts learned Friday. The Offshore District of Texaco has headquarters in the Brazosport Savings Center. It is headed by J. B. Woodward, superintendent for the Offshore District. Initially, the district operates with five employees. Besides Woodward, district officers are Ed Hayman, warehouseman; and George Slaughter, district engineer. Texaco Inc. was the biggest buyer of leases last April when the federal government opened bids on tracts In the outer continental shelf off the Texas coast. Alone, Texaco paid $183,358, 080 for 20 tracts totaling 100,560 acres. Most of the tracts are full three-mile- square blocks. Texaco also teamed with Humble to buy seven more tracts totaling 40,320 acres for $103,599,360. Alone and in partnership, Texaco's offshore-T e x a s involvement approaches half of the total $593,899,046 In accepted bids for all offshore tracts offered.

Stormdrill HI is in the Galveston Area, east of Free- fort; and Penrod 57 is test- Ing in the Brazos area southwest of here. The Offshore District is responsible for the planning and' drilling of these tests, and with later production il the tests find oil and gas in enough quantities.
