A .successful "soft" landing would Hive the Russians a four month lead over the United States in the moon race The probe, known as the Luna i Lunik i 5. has been streaking toward the moon for two days. The Russians said they would try soft landing tech- probes when space vehicles crashed into the moon. Kscape Clause The Tass news agency announced the vehicle would try a soft landing systrn but it appeared to leave an escape clause in case the landing failed The announcement said only that "elements of the system of soft landing are being tried out for the first time The fir-t US. attempt to land a spacecraft, known as the surveyor, on the lunar service without a shattering impact is now scheduled lor early October The first U S lunar land- er will weigh about hall a ton less than Luna 5 and will carry- no scientific instruments. The Russian probe is to send back ! signals from the landing site "in the area of the Sea Of ! clouds." !
