AMSTERDAM, Dec. 18 - On board of the Apollo 17, which is now starting to fall back to earth with increasing speed everything is fine (the landing takes place tomorrow evening at 20:26). The stomach problems of the astronaut Ronald Evans had to contend with for some time seem to have disappeared. Evans' spacewalk to recover three film cassettes from the service compartment of the Command Module - was not endangered and could be brought to a successful end without any problems.
