Apollo Back Today!
SPACE CENTER, Houston (AP)
Apollo 14 astronauts packed away their
moon treasure Monday and tidied up the
spacecraft with a vacuum cleaner as they
prepared for splashdown in the South Pa-
Alan B. Shepard Jr., Edgar D. Mitchell
and Stuart A. Roosa worked much of the
day stowing the 108 pounds of rock gathered
during their lunar adventure and '.rimming
their command ship.
NEWSMEN SUBMITTED questions to
Mission Control for relay to the astronauts
for a televised news conference Monday
The astronauts also tied down an 80-
pound docking mechanism they are return-
ing for engineering analysis. The appara-
tus failed five times shortly after launch
Jan. 31 and experts on the ground are anx-
ious to find out why.
Following instructions from Mission
Control, the spacemen secured the docking
probe in a lower equipment bay of their
"WHEN IT CAME to the point about
all the rope tying, I was glad I'm (lying with
two sailors," said Roosa, an Air Force
major. Shepard is a Navy captain, and
Mitchell a Navy commander.
The astronauts make their scorching re-
entry Tuesday into the earth's atmosphere
and splash down at 3:04 p.m. CST in the
South Pacific. They took star sightings to
tune up their navigation and used the vac-
uum cleaners on board to remove any moon
dust floating in their craft.
Mission Control awakened the crew
from a 10-hour rest period and Mitchell,
the first one up, said he had trouble rousing
THE SPACECRAFT had left the moon
Saturday and started a long climb up a
gravity hill toward the earth, 238,000 mjles
away, its speed slowly dropping to a low of
2,260 miles per hour.
Sunday night, the command ship Kitty
Hawk passed the crest of the hill and fell
into earth's gravitational pull, and the speed
increased. By noon Monday the ship was
clipping along at 3,264 m.p.h. and by the
time it collides with the earth's atmosphere
on Tuesday, Apollo 14 will be streaking at
24,500 m.p.h., fast enough for friction
against the atmosphere to turn the leading
edge of the spacecraft red hot.
Here is the Tuesday timetable leading to
Apollo 14's splashdown in the South Pacific
all times Central Standard:
6:23 a.m. End eight-hour rest period.
11:50 a.m. Final midcourse correction

Walkers To Raise
Funds for Children
Approximately 1,000 Dentonites are
expected to turn out at 8 Saturday morn-
ing for the March of Dimes' Miles for
Children Walk according to Joel H.
Albrecht, city planner and chairman of
The Miles for Children Walk is a 20-
mile walk to raise funds for the March
of Dimes in its fight against birth de-
fects. Funds are raised by "walkers"
who obtain donations by contacting a
number of sponsors who agree to pay
a certain amount of money for each wi ile
completed by the walker.
The Denton Civitan Club, which is
sponsoring the walk, will have check-
points located at approximately 4-mile
Albrecht said he hoped that enough
people would participate in the drive to
raise the $5,000 goal.
Alter the walk, awards will be pre-
sented. Only those participants who
complete the 20-mile walk will be eli-
gible for the following prizes: an auto
tape deck, tape cartridge and 100 gallons
Other awards will be given to the walk-
er who turns in the most money collected
from sponsors and the walker having the
largest number of sponsors. There are
19 Denton businesses contributing prizes.
Jordan Accepts Position
As UT-Dallas President
Dr. Bryce Jordan, who is believed to have
been offered the job of North Texas presi-
dent, has been appointed president of the
University of Texas at Dallas.
UT-Dallas was created in 1969 by the
Texas Legislature from the former South-
west Center for Advanced Studies. It was
created as an all-graduate branch of the
University of Texas.
In addition to graduates, the school will
be able to admit junior and senior students
by 1975, but will not be allowed to accept
freshmen and sophomores.
A bill is pending before the legislature
to make UT-Dallas a four-year college.
It was introduced by State Rep. Jack
Blanton of Carrollton and has been attacked
by State Sen. Don Kennard of Fort Worth
who accused Dallas of going back on its
promise not to expand so soon.
Jordan, now acting president of the Uni-
versity of Texas at Austin, will fill the office

Alternate to Ph.D.
^Doctor of Arts'
Students stepped carefully on their way to classes Mon-
day morning after a trace of snow fell, and a sheet of ice
formed on Denton streets Sunday night. Knitted caps
and mufflers were abundant as students tried to keep
warm in the sub-freezing weather. The temperature
sank to an unofficial low of 14 degrees Monday morning
The Graduate Student Council (GSC)
at its regular monthly meeting Wednesday
began investigation into the feasibility of
offering a Doctor of Arts degree at North
The new degree would serve as an alter-
native to the research-oriented Ph.D. degree
and would require an internship period of
teaching at the college or junior college

The GSC presented a resolution to the
Faculty Senate that would grant teaching
fellows full membership in the senate The
proposal has been studied by the Bylaws
Committee of the senate and will be voted
on at the February meeting.
The GSC also decided to support a de-
partmental pass-fail option for all graduate
courses with a one-to-one ratio of profes-

DASH Continues To Interview
Reporter Sticks to Story por Volunteer Students To Tutor
North Texas Daily reporter John I'enn,
who reported that a "23-year-old flower
child" was handcuffed when arrested last
Tuesday, said he is sticking to his story.
"I never saw the policeman place hand-
cuffs on James Hartzell, but I did see Hart-
zell scratch his face and both hands were
together. I saw what appeared to be a chain
between his wrists," Penn said Monday.
Arresting officer Donald Marshall has
denied that he placed handcuffs on Hart-
Penn said he spoke to Marshall briefly
while he was loading the (lowers Hartzell
had been selling into the police car. The of-
ficer told him at that time there was a city
ordinance against selling merchandise on
the street without a permit.
Marshall also claimed that he talked to
Penn at the police station.
"Alter the desk officer refused to let me
see the offense report," Penn said, "I did
ask another uniformed officer a question.
It could have been Marshall, but he was not
wearing a badge or name tag and did not
Efforts to question Hartzell about the in-
cident have thus far been unsuccessful.
Interviews will continue this week for students interested in par-
ticipating in the Denton After School Help (DASH) program,
Jack Singleton, co-director of DASH said Monday
"The program is going great guns. We have a record high of
about 220 North Texas and TWU students signed up for the pro-
gram But we still need more. The schools have requested more
tutors this year. We need about 50 more. We especially need
males, blacks, and Mexican-Americans."
The program is different than it has been in the past. Students
are now allowed to tutor during school hours. Singleton thinks
that this change will help the program greatly.
"Students are now able to tutor during school hours at 8 a.m.
or 10 a.m., and I, 2, and 3 p.m. These new hours are in addition to
the regular hour after school 3:15 to 4:15 p.m.
"The new' hours will enable our tutors to help students who ride
buses to school. They have to leave immediately after school and
have not been able to participate in the program until now," Sin-
Singleton said the word 'tutor,' is misleading.
"Students think that by the word 'tutor.' we mean someone who
is really a teacher," he said "The essence of this program is to
create a relationship with the elementary student a friendship
That's what is important. Students shouldn't shy away because
the> don't feel they are qualified."
Interested students ma) contact Singleton at either 382-3262
"The students don't even have to come see me The interview
can be handled over the phone and their assignment may be given
to them at that time," Singleton said
Carr Tells SEC He 'Done No Wrong'
DALLAS (AP) A rush of defendants
(led the Securities and Exchange Commis-
sion suit alleging fraud and stock manipu-
lation Monday. They did so without admit-
ting any wrong-doing, but consenting to the
injunction sought by the government.
Shortly thereafter, former Texas Atty.
Gen. Waggoner Carr, the largest political
figure named in the civil suit, stated he had
done no wrong. He repeatedly said that he
hardl) knew most of the other original de-
fendants if he knew them at all.
1 hese were the highlights of the first day
of hearings into the SEC suit which has
rocked lexas from the statehouse to rural
villages. The hearing brought out a court-
room and corridor-jamming crowd Secur-

LEGAL STATEMENTS surrounding
the SEC petition brought in the names of

Speaker Cius Mutscher.
The political leaders were not named in
the suit, but the depositions said they ob-
tained unsecured bank loans from Sharps-
town State Bank in Houston to buy stocks
which rose very sharply. They then sold
at good profits. The SEC petition said
the aim was to influence a banking bill in

they would not engage in stock manipu-

Remaining as defendants were seven in-
dividuals. In addition, three defendant
companies were not represented by lawyers
Monday and their status was in doubt for
THESE DISCHARGED Monday were
among the largest names in the SEC pe-
They included Frank W. Sharp of Hou-
ston, pointed to in depositions as the brain
behind the bank loans and stock deals, and
whose Sharpstown State Bank closed after
depositors withdrew SI5 million in cash
within a few days.
Also freed from the suit were National
Bankers Life Insurance Co. (NBL), whose
stock was the prime commodity in the
deal according to SEC allegations, and six
other smaller companies which had ties
Other individuals accepting the consent
decree were J. Quincy Adams, Donald S
Akins and Sam Stock. Firms released from

tor, Tom Max Thomas, Audv Byrarn, Dal-

Judge Hughes set Aug. 30 as the date
for a hearing for a permanent injunction
Monday's session was on a plea for temp-
CARR. A wavy-haired former lexas
attorney general, was dead serious in court,
and did just what he said earlier he would
do: Fight any allegations that he had done
He is a regent of Texas Tech at I ubboek
and is on the Committee of 100 aiming at
improving ethics of public officials.
The SI C petition lists him as connected
with two minor companies named as de-
fendants and a one-time member of a group
which controlled City Bank and Trust Co
ol Dallas, once a defendant and now dis-
charged. Carr said he got out of City Bank
& I rust when Sharp took over.
During the afternoon session, SI C law-
yer Robert Watson had his moments with
former state attorney general, and got much
the same replies as during the morning
when Carr's own lawyer questioned him.
ONE THE CROSS- examination by
Watson, Carr was carried through minute
details ol the SEC allegations.
Carr's answers included such statements
as, "I don't recall that," "I don't remem-
ber," "Not to my knowledge," "No,"
"I know nothing about it." "I was not in
that end of the operations," "I don't recall
the date," and "I do not know."
Carr again denied, as he did in direct
examination, that he had anything to do
with writing the banking legislation Sharp
wanted because Sharp was angry with Fed-
eral Deposit Insurance Corp policies
FDIC insures bank accounts.
Carr agreed that the legislation was
drawn up by the ( arr and Osorio law firm
but said he did not see it until it was finish-
ed, Earlier, he said he couldn't know what
all of the 10 members of the firm were doing
at all times.
THE FORMER attorney general and
Texas House speaker said he did ask Os-
orio if anyone opposed such banking legis-
lation. Ile said Osorio replied that there
was no opposition.
C arr said later he discovered that both
the lexas Banking Commission and the
State Banking Association opposed the
proposed legislation which would have
permitted private insurance companies to
insure some accounts under certain circum-
stances. The morning session also provided
mostly negative answers from Carr.
In answer to questions, Carr testified on
knowing Sharp "I've only seen him three
times in my entire life."
Carr said he never gave false informa-
tion to the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp
when asked if he had any transactions with
the Jesuit fathers of Houston, Inc.. which
legal documents indicate. Carr said abso-
DID HE EVER give misleading or false
information to the State Banking Com-
mission: "Absolutely not."
