Confidence was high that the Saturn which ha? never failed gn assignment, would come through again. The main perils of the flight will be encountered as Armstrong and Aldrin guide the fragi!

A week-long bombardment of Nui Ba Den was climaxed early ' Saturday when three B52 raids —the first ever against the mountain considered sacred to some Vietnamese— unloaded 540 tons of bombs on its slopes. The mountain is about seven miles northeast of Tay Ninh. One U,S. officer later however, described the B52 Stratofor* tress raids as "a waste of time." A company of the U.S. 1st Infantry Division clashed with an enemy force early Saturday afternoon, several hours after the B52 raid, at the eastern base of Ba Den, and lost two killed and 12 wounded. Associated Press correspond. ent Peter Amett reported from Tay Ninh that the Americans pulled back and called in more artillery and tactical air strikes on the eastern slopes, later claiming a body count of 31 enemy. The enemy unit involved was believed to be the 9th Viet Cong Division, whose 1st Battalion, 88th Infantry Regiment, is holed up on Nuj Ba Den's slopes. PRESCRIPTION S £ R V I C E 8?
