Conrad, Kerwin and Weitz all suffered some effects from the deconditioning of their bodies after living in weightlessness 28 days, but the astronauts said they are in good health now. The Skylab 1 mission ended last Friday. Living . and working in space, said Kerwin, the first space-flying physician, was exhilarating. "It was a continuing and pleasant surprise to me to find out how easy it was," he said, "and how good you felt. You get a positive glow of health. It's easy to move, it's easy to work." He said, however, that prolonged living in space causes a physical adaptation which must be reversed when the astronauts return to earth. "Our^ postnight conditions demonstrated : th e r e ' are changes and there is a,price to be paid in that it takes time to return to normal," said Kerwin. He added, however, that within two 'days of their return to earth, "we were all able to carry out a normal day's work." Kerwin said he suffered some nausea and vomiting, Weitz said he had some dizz- ness, and Conrad said he had a brief spell of vertigo after returning to earth. "It took a while to lose the heavy feeling in the arms and legs," said Conrad. "For a while I almost had to shuffle m'y feet." Exercise, said the Skylab 1 commander, may be the answer to allowing man to stay in space for long periods. He said he and his crew- mates worked out daily on a bicycle device. "I think the bicycle ergo- meter exerciser contributed significantly to our well- being," said Conrad; "If it weren't for the bicycle, I think that they would have carried us out of the spacecraft." Asked if their experience gave any indications if man would be able to withstand a mission of two years or more to Mars, Kerwin said: "I am confident that we're going to be able to work it out." ' . ' Conrad said he and his crewmates left behind in orbit a smoothly operating Skylab space station which is ready for the 56-day mission of the Skylab 2 astronauts. "They've got a good home up there and they can go for 56 days with no strain," he said. The Skylab 2 crew is set for launching July 28. NOTICE!

M. • M. •.)'<• Associated Press MIAMI, FMOfflcials of 4 luxury liner with 1,000 sick people aboard said Friday the mysterious intestinal ailment that swept the ship was tapering off, Passengers were even enjoying free drinks as the Caribbean cruise ship headed for Miami, they said. The Norwegian Caribbean Lines ship Skyward was forced to cut short a Caribbean cruise Thursday when the ailment marked by diarrhea, fever, stomach cramps and dizziness broke out. The passengers were given medicine and that appeared to do the trick. Officials said they believed the outbreak was caused by a virus, not from contaminated food or water. "The bug is on the wane," said Al Wolfe, vice president of the Miami-based shipping line. The Skyward was expected to dock in Miami at about 3 a.m. today. "Most of the passengers are out of their quarters now and moving 'about freely," Wolfe added. He said passengers were filling the ship's bar, which was serving complimentary drinks. He said there would be no quarantine for the passengers and crew who would disem* bark at 9 a.m. But Wolfe said a medical team would be standing by in Miami and would go aboard to carry out routine examinations'. Earlier, Dr. William Barker of the National Center for Disease Control in Atlanta said the disease was not serious. "It is incapacitating but the people are doing all right," he said. The Skyward left Miami June 23 for stops scheduled in Haiti, San Juan, P.R., St. Thomas, V.I., and Nassau in the Bahamas. The outbreak of queasy stomachs began Tuesday while the ship was en route from Haiti to Puerto Rico. Al Wftlfe, vice president of the Miami-based cruise line, said thel&i&toot ship was ft- turning id Miami' from St. Thomas at 20 knbts, its top speed.
