And a strange greeting it will be for the first men to walk the surface of the moon. There will be no presidential handshakes for the returning heroes. They will be treated like the bearers of a deadly disease. Space officials fear the astronauts may • return from the moon with some exotic lunar j germ that could devastate life; on earth if freed. Officials sayj the chances of such a bug are infinitesimal, but, as one noted, "there's too much at stake" not to play it safe. Armstrong, Aldrin and Collins will be greeted in the water by a frogman wearing a The Flight - ol Apollo 11 Dei Moinet Reqtito' Thuri., July 24, heavy biological isolation garment and breathing through a gas mask-like canister. The frogman will toss similar garments to the astronauts aboard their spacecraft. This quick opening of the hatch is the weakest link in the quarantine that will keep the astronauts isolated at least 18 more days. When the space heroes first come into view O f their President and the world watching on television, they will be Didn't Win, Boar Is Sold For $3,400 By Don Mnhm (The Register's Farm Editor) A lop price of $3,400 was paid Wednesday for a Texas-bred boar at the National Hampshire Meat Hog Conference at the Iowa State Fairgrounds.

With the Presiden, looking on from the carrier', bridge, a helicopter will laud the spacemen on the Hornet's deck. They are then to walk just. a few feet to a silver trailer which they will not leave until they enter the elaborate Lunar Receiving Laboratory at the Manned Spacecraft Center In Houston. The laboratory is isolated from the outside by air filters, thick walls and sealed doors. Mr. Nixon Is expected to talk with the astronauts through an Intercom and to see them through a thick glass window on the side of the trailer.

One Probe Topic: Diagonal Roads COMMISSION- Continued /rom Page One to decide what areas should be investigated, under the broadly worded legislative resolution which directs a study of the commission's "make-up and organization," its "employment policies" and "land-use policies." Senator Roger Shaff (Pep., Camanche) said the committee should study methods used by the commission in condemning and buying land .for highway construction. Several committee members said they don't think much of the design of many new highways in the state. Lamborn criticized the planning of highway bridges and Interstate Highway System interchanges, saying the commission uses a confusing variety of designs. Fischer criticized the commission for using raised concrete channelizing markers at interchanges and intersections, "they jire a concrete salesman's dream, but they require maintenance and are hazards in the winter," he said. Representative Leroy Miller (Rep., Shenandoah) said of the design and complex interchanges on the Des Moines "Boy, a if you think you Freeway: that isn't a place where take your life in your hands!" Three Subcommittees The committee decided on about a dozen topics to be studied and set up three subcommittees to hold hearings. A "land use" subcommittee will study the determination of highway locations, including diagonal highways, public relations in land procurement, and the economic impact on towns of relocating highways. That subcommittee will consist of Senator Hugh Clark (Rep., B e 1 m o n d), chairman, Senator Shaff, Senator Bass Van Gilst (Dem., Oskaloosa), Representative Edgington arid Representative Adrian Brinck (Dem., West Point). An "employment policies" subcommittee will study the use of design consultants, policies in transferrring employ- es and whether the commission should be permitted to hire its own attorneys. Representative William Harbor (Rep., Henderson) was named chairman of that subcommittee. Other members are Senator Charles Mogged (Rep., Fairfield), Senator William Denman (Dem., Des Moines), Rep- Signs of Quake on Moon Stir Scientists 9 Excitement HOUSTON, TEX. (AP) — A geologist connected with the Apollo 11 flight is betting a case of champagne that the moon shuddered with a moonquake Tuesday, the first ever recorded. the resentative Fischer aud Repre sentative Vernon Bennett (Dem., Des Moines). The third subcommittee will tudy "general operations," including highway design, high way safety, enforcement pol icies, use of state vehicles damage to county roads caused by state highway construction and purchasing policies. That subcommittee will be headed by Representative La verne Schroeder (Rep. McClelland). Other members are Senator Eugene Hill (Dem. Newton), Senator Elmer Langi (Rep., Sac City), Representa tive Mezvinsky and Representa live Miller. Lamborn also told the general operations subcommittee that it could study the possible reorganization of the Highway Commission to make it more answerable to the Legislature or the gover nor.

Praise Nation Later in the day, the astronauts spoke a hymn of praise r or the men and the nation that sent them to the moon. In brief, moving farewells in heir last telecast from space, heir historic voyage of explo- ation was described as a sym- ol of "the insatiable curiosity of all mankind." The astronauts expressed heir gratitude to the waiting world simply but with feeling. "We've come to the conclusion," Aldrin said, "that this las been far more than three men on a voyage to the moon, more still than the efforts of a ;overnment-industry team, more ven than the efforts of one nation. ;•.-• "We feel that it stands as a symbol of the insatiable curiosity of all mankind to explore the unknown." Each man talked for about hree minutes. Armstrong in- roduced the other two and then himself—spoke the last words of the telecast: "To all MICHAEL COLLINS the people who are listening and watching tonight, God bless you. Good night from Apollo 11." Others' Words Collins described the com plexity of the machines and equipment which sent them t the moon and back and said the trip itself had been terribly difficult and demanding. "This trip of ours, to th moon may have looked to you simple and easy," he said. *T< like to assure you that that ha: nqt been the case... "All this is possible only through the blood, sweat and tears of a number of people." Aldrin said the flight brough to mind a song of praise from the Eighth Psalm of the Bible: "When I consider the heav ens, the work of Thy fingers the moon and the stars whicl them hast ordained, what man that Thou him." art mindful o ADVERTISEMENT the moon Sunday by the Apollo astronauts transmitted squiggles indicating the moon 'quivered about five minutes |event occurred at 3:20 p.m. Iowa time Tuesday.
