RANGER'S MOONEYES—These are the six RCA television cameras aboard the Ranger spacecraft fired toward the moon. They were designed for different functions, including broadcasting to earth a last picture just before impact which incorporated a square of the moon's surface measuring 128 feet on a side. ! Dc Gaulle told a crowded [news conference this was one •of the reasons why he recognized the Chinese Communist this week. "No peace or war is imaginable in Asia without China being involved," he declared. "It is inconceivable to be able to conclude a treaty of neutrality concerning the states of Southeast Asia—to which France bears a special and cordial attention—without China being a party to it. Neutrality, in fact, seems to be the only situation compatible with a peaceful life and progress for these peoples." On the Common Market. Dc Gaulle said the agreement on a joint farm policy reached by the six member nations just before Christmas was essential if: the trading group is to push' ahead. j "It is now up to them to put; into effect what tlicy have de-i cided."

Calif. (UPI) U. S. scientists announced today that the Ranger-6 spacecraft I will score a historic impact on the moon "right on target." early Sunday to pave the way for man's landing on the lunar surface. They said the Ranger, designed to take the first close-up television pictures of the moon, would hit in an area on the face of the moon called the Sea of Tranquility at 1:24 a.m. PST Sunday. H. M. Schurmeier, Ranger Project manager, said the planned impact point would be 7'j degrees north latitude, 19 degrees cast latitude. j "I am very happy to report! that so far we are a complete success and we can say that we are going to hit our target," Schurmeier said. The success of the lunar- probing space eye was made possible by a critical mid-flight maneuver that put the craft on a collision course with the moon. The maneuver was executed today on signal from JPL's Goldstone Tracking station in California's Mojave Desert 150 miles east of the Pasadena laboratory. At that time laboratory director Dr. William Pickering confidential predicted a successful landing. The adjustment was ordered by a radio signal at 12:30 a.m. PST to a prc-instructed computer in the craft, and 27 minutes later the computer activated a motor rocket on the vehicle for about one minute to make the adjustment. The entire operation took slightly more than one hour to complete.

"It looks real good," a spokesman said. I Without this maneuver, scientists estimated, the Ranger would have missed the moon by about 600 miles. If all goes as planned, Ranger-6 will make a crash dive on the moon early Sunday, snapping up to 3.000 closeup photo! graphs of earth's nearest neighbor before splattering to bits on the lunar surface at about 4:49 a.m. EST that day. The pictures, which could represent America's first moon- shot success in 15 attempts, will help determine the landing spot for this nation's first manned lunar landing expedition later this decade.

The remains of the three men—Lt. Col. Gerald K. Hannaford, 41, Austin, Tex., Capt. Donald Millard. 33. Okiah. Calif., and Capt. John Lorraine. 34. Jacksonville, Fla. — were brought first to West Berlin in a U.S. Army ambulance. Then, after proper respects and honors, and a brief tribute from U.S. Ambassador to Bonn George C. McGhee to "these brave men." the bodies were placed aboard a plane and flown to this base which is headquarters for the U. S. Air Force in Europe. The widows of the slain airmen, each accompanied by an Air Force officer in a military sedan, watched silently as the plane bearing the bodies of the husbands they last saw alive three days ago taxied to a stop. A silver - helmeted Air Force honor guard, 18 airmen pallbearers, and about 200 officers led by U.S. Air Force European Vice Commander Lt. Gen. Richard M. Montgomery, snapped to attention. A band played the Star Spangled Banner. Then the plane's big doors opened. The pallbearers marched aboard. Drummers beat a sorrowful tattoo until the last of the metal coffins w a s loaded aboard three .waiting ambulances.

Oxygen was administered to the youngsters and they were returned to school within two hours. Oroville dam termed "slipshod boondoggle OROVILLE (UPI)—The Oroville Mercury - Register today published a series of copyrighted photographs to support an editorial charging that the state's Oroville Dam Project "might become a slipshod boondoggle." The dam, a massive earth-CIl structure, is under construction five miles northeast of Oroville. It is a key unit in California's S1.75 billion water plan, which is designed to send north state water into arid area of the south. The photographs were taken inside a diversion tunnel at the damsite and showed that ceiling supports were sitting on apparently shaky piles of rock and timber. In the editorial, publisher Dan L. Becbe said there also was evidence that substandard material had been used in an initial phase of the dam's construction. Furthermore. Becbe said, a slate engineer had written a "begging" letter urging that the concrete poured in the photographed diversion tunnel be kept up to specifications. Beebc said the reports of substandard material in the dam had come from state Sen. Stan Pittman, R-Oroville, who learned of it while touring the dam- site shortly after the Baldwin Hills Dam disaster in Southern California last December. The material was "soil" used in a lower layer of the dam. Pittman told United Press International that an engineering check-sheet at the damsite showed the material to be substandard and that he called the state Department of Water Resources about it. He said he was told the material did not have to meet specifications because it was below the level of the dam's concrete core. However. Pittman indicated he was not satisfied. "In light of the information the Mercury has published and an apparent lack of quality control at the dam, I am requesting a Senate investigation," he said. aboard and is not involved in any sort of conflict. But she isj taking steps to have available] in case of necessity powerful modern defensive weapons. "This situation, which is; completely new for France, enables her to consider and to deal serenely with the subjects that concern her." Civil rights demonstrators in Cleveland sit-in CLEVELAND (UPI) — Police stood watch today as 100 civil rights demonstrators began a sit-in at the Board of Education building to back up demands for integration of classes transported from Negro to white schools. The sit-in came after two days of violence in which six- persons were hospitalized and a score of others, including photographers and newsmen, were injured. As the demonstrators lined the halls of the school board building and 100 more marched outside, members of the opposition Collinwood Improvement Association met with school officials to protest the board's promise to integrate the classes by next September. The dispute, brewing in the background since September, exploded into violence Wednesday, then worsened Thursday as whites in the city's "Little Italy" section attacked Negroes in the area, hurling bottles and rocks at passing cars. Canceled Picket Plans The demonstrators had originally planned to picket today at the three schools to which their children are transported each day to relieve overcrowding at predominantly Negro Hazeldell Elementary School. They canceled plans to picket Thursday when a huge, menacing crowd gathered outside Murray Hill Elementary School. End Future Production The U.S. freeze plan, Foster said, proposed to end produc tion of new and more powerful nuclear delivery vehicles but to keep stockpiles at present levels. "It would halt the race to produce better strategic vehicles to carry bigger warheads," he said. "It would mean an end to the qualitative as well as the quantitative stra tegic arms race. "The immediate objective of the freeze on numbers should be to maintain the quantity of strategic nuclear vehicles held by East and West at constant levels," he said. Three dead in helicopter crash into sea IMPERIAL BEACH (UPI) —A jet - powered Navy helicopter crashed at sea Thursday killing all three Navy airmen aboard. The dead were identified as: Lt. George E. Webber, 28, the pilot, son of Mrs. Robert W. Jones of Palo Alto; Ens. Robert V. Bold Jr., 24, the co-pilot, son of Mr. and Mrs. Robert V. Bold Sr. of Reseda, and Aviation Machinists Mate 3.C. Lanny R. McKinney, 26, son of Mr. and Mrs. Arthur McKinney of Douglas, Ariz. Navy spokesmen said the SH3A "Sea King" helicopter crashed six miles offshore from this beach city while on a training mission. deposed the military junta of Maj. Gen. Duong Van Minh Thursday forced the cancellation of a major Vietnamese drive against the Communist guerrillas, military sources said today. The sources said it was too early to assess how Maj. Gen. Nguyen Khanh's bloodless seiz ure of power will affect the bitter guerrilla war. But some U.S. advisers serving with the Vietnamese army were said to have been disturbed because Thursday's political moves interfered with an important military operation. Khanh, a 36-year-old U.S.- trained officer known as a firm anti-Communist, said he overthrew the junta after only three months of power to keep South Viet Nam from going neutralist. He indicated some of the arrested junta generals had been plotting with French agents here to push this country into a neutralist position.

Earthquake hits Riverside area RIVERSIDE (UPI)—A minor earthquake hit some western sections of Riverside County Thursday night. There was no major damage. The sheriff's office said it received one report of broken windows in the Riverside area. Residents of the outlying areas of Hemet and Banning also reported feeling the shock. Seismologist Dr. Charles Richter of the California Institute of Technology in Pasadena, said a "slight trace" was recorded there at about 7:45 p.m. indicating a minor temblor.

(Reports from Laos today said Communist forces, aided by troops from Communist North Viet Nam, have captured the Central Laos headquarters of the Laotian neutralist and right-wing factions after heavy fighting. (The Communists have fought intermittently with the neutralist and right-wing forces since the three-way coalition was set up in Laos in 1962.) Minh Under Arrest Minh, the deposed junta chairman, and Nguyen Doc Tho his civilian prime minister, were under house arrest. Armed guards surrounded their homes but no charges have been placed against them. Khanh met Thursday with U.S. Ambassador Henry Cabot Lodge, who had been a firm supporter of Minh's regime, and showed him documents he said proved some of the top Vietnamese generals were dealing with French agents. Lodge's only comment on Khanh's seizure of power was that the United States had nothing to do with the coup and hoped there would be no bloodshed. (In Moscow, however, Soviet press reports blamed U.S. military men for the coup.) Soviets study extrasensory perception GREENSBORO, N.C. (UPI)— A research associate in parapsychology said here Thursday the Soviet Union was conducting experiments on the military and educational uses of extrasensory perception. Dr. John A. Freeman of Duke University told a civic club the Russians believe that someday soldiers will be able to communicate "with people in space ships without using radios." a mediator — probably a European but not British, Greek, Turkish or American. The U.S. plan has been discussed with the British for several days. Today it was presented for the first time to Greece and Turkey and to Archbishop Makarios, the Cypriot president, whose consent is necessary before any force may go to the island. Undersecretary of State George Ball met in Washington today with ambassadors from Greece, Turkey and Britain to explain it. Makarios has opposed the idea of a NATO force. At one time, a United Nations peacekeeping force was proposed, but this would mean dealing with the Communists in the Security Council or General Assembly. Gregory blasts handling of racial prisoners By United Press International Charges by civil rights demonstrators that female prisoners were molested by Negro trusties in an Atlanta jail were under investigation today. The charges were made by some of the more than 200 persons arrested during four days of racial demonstrations in the southern city. Negro leaders promised to resume their assault on segregated restaurants today following a one-day lay-off prompted by the court action. Among those testifying in court Thursday was Negro comedian Dick Gregory who said some of the trusties guarding civil rights demonstrators were drunk. "I've been in and out of enough night clubs and I think I know what drunks look like," Gregory said.
