What do you mean by `mixed'? Not I think in the sense of Pinheiro & Bates' book or nlme.

You can see several ways to do this in MASS. Most simply

lm(y ~ x1 + ns(s2, df=?))

for regression splines. For smoothing splines, see the functions gam() in packages mgcv and gam (which differ considerably), or bruto() in mda or package gss or ....
