Lunokhod 2 discovered, Tass said, that the moon is shrouded in a strata of dust particles strongly dispersing the visible solar light and the reflected light of the earth. It also determined, Tass said, that the magnetic field on the moon's surface is heterogeneous-that is, it is not uniform in structure or composition. Lunokhod 1 froze solid during a frigid lunar night when its solar heating batteries gave out.

In other congressional action this week: —A Democratic bill to hike the iminimum wage by 60 cents an hour and to extend its coverage to six million low paid workers comes to a vote this week in the House. The measure has strong union backing. —Debate will beigin in the Senate on a major farm bill. The legislation would revise the way subsidies are paid. The mimimum wage bill before the House is similar to one that passed the Senate last year but perished in the House. It would raise the wage that must be paid to workers covered from the presenit $1.60 an hour to $2.20 within a year and would extend coverage to six million jobs now uncovered, including maids and Other ctomest&c workers. The administration, with business backing, will push its own substitute which would not broaden the laws coverage and would raise the wage to $2.10 over a two-year period. AFL- CIO President George Meany (has urged each House member to support the Democratic bill. The farm measure would guarantee that when marketplace prices are poor, farmers who comply with federal planting controls would receive government payments equal to ihe difference between market prices and "target hrices" — amounts Congress figures farmers "ought to" receive for their crops.
