(Jalesburg R^lsfer-Maii GAB Moscow Soviet Union's fifst Mars probe since 1971 hurtled toward the Red Manet today, its apparent mission to put life-seeking electronic gear on the Martian surface. A \ -Mars -4 blasted off on the si* month, 29Jknillion*miie trip 4 Saturday at 10:31 p.m., the news agency Tass said Sunday. "It will continue scientific exploration of Mars and space near it that was started by the automatic interplanetary stations Mars-2 and Mars-3 in 1971," Tass said. A capsule ejected by Mars-2 apparently clashed on the surface, Western space experts said, but Mars-3 successfully soft-landed an instrument pack age that transmitted video and other signals for 20 seconds before going dead. Additional Probes said nothing about Western speculation that one or more additional Mars probes might chase Mars-4. The launches of Mars-2 arid 3 were within nine days of each other. The size of Mams 4 was not reported. Mars-2 and 3 each Tass weighed about five tons without their booster rocket. Since the Mars-2 and 3 missions, the Soviet Union has landed on Venus an instrument package that sent data for 50 minutes before intense heat and surface pressure silenced it. Western space sources said the apparent aim of Mars -4 was to land\ research instruments and a television camera to send back first details from the arid surface. • • ». They said Soviet scientists who are developing "robot biologists! 1 hoped to land the equipment near the south polar cap where the thin, largely carbon dioxide atmosphere may contain some moisture and living organisms. , Western space experts had forecast a Mars shot because of the presence of the so-called ''launch window," a month-long stretch every 26 months when the relative positions of the earth and Mars make a launch moist feasible. The U.S. Mars program does not plan to use this particular launch window but is preparing two Viking spacecraft for Mars flights in 1975-1976. How Does Your Garden Grow?

Some of:the sources said the bombing, begun in March of 1969 but not officially acknowledged until last week, could crystalize ; a n, e w- .conflict betweenCongress and the President. Documented Proof Official documents show that both Nixon and State, Department legal adviser John R Stevenson said in speeches in 1970 that the first bombing occurred during the controversial invasion on April 30 of that year. • The White House announced last week that former Defense Secretary Melvin R. Laird authorized the secret strikes 14 1 months before the invasion and that Nixon approved them. , Nixon, during his speech on nationwide television announcing the invasion, said: "For the past five years ... North Vietnam has occupied military sanctuaries all along the Cambodian., frontier with South Vietnam. For five years, neither the Unified States nor South Vietnam has moved against those''enemy sanctuaries because we did not wish to ate the • territory of a neutral nation."- ; But between March, 1969, and April 30, 1970 according to the White House statement last Week, there were 3,360 B52 raids dropping 104,000 tons of bombs on six Communist bases in Cambodia. Reports on the raids were doctored to indicate the bombing Was limited to South Vietnam, while highly classified reports on the Cambodia bombing were sent to only £ few high officials in Washing ton. Stevenson, in a speech in New York one month after the invasion, said, "Except for scattered instances of returning fire across . the border, we refrained until April; from taking (retaliatory) action in Cambodia." Senate; Minority Leader Mike Mansfield, D-Mont., said Saturday; c]ii||ces of congressional extension of the Aug. 15 deadline for ending 'the Cambodia bombing are.

Officials said they did not know what the hijackers want. The hijackers—officials said they thought there were four--said they would blow up the craft and its passengers if police tried to seize or enter it. Tlie hijackers again ignored appeals Sunday for the release of the women and children aboard the plane. "We are awaiting instructions firm our headquarters," one said. He did not indicate the whereabouts of the headquarters or what the method of relaying instructions would be. The .hijackers demanded and •H' received food and fuel for the jetliner but an airline executive denied reports they sought a ransom of $5 million. Doctors Consulted The hijackers identified themselves as members of a heretofore unknown Palestinian organization called "Sons of the Occupied Territory." They did not identify themselves by nationality and police said they still do not know where the hijackers arc from.
