AMSTERDAM, Dec. 18 - On board Apollo 17, which is now starting to fall back to Earth with increasing speed, everything is fine (the landing will take place tomorrow evening at 20:26). The stomach problems that 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.
