But he said he didn't know how they could make any refunds, until "some- body gives us permission." Damages There is in collected reservation and user fees in- volved.

Powell said he made available from his own funds about friend" of the park service director until he learned it through the hearings. Walker, whose resignation as NFS director becomes effective at year's end, returned to the stand briefly when Metzenbaum said "fairness dictates that he )e asked to swear to his earlier .estimony, which had not been ,aken under oath. Walker, upon advice of his attorney, will ex- amine the transcripts of his tes- imony before doing so. Was Working Walker, in a statement re- eased to the press at the hcar- ng, said that an evaluation of he reservation system, made at lis request, concluded working during the season and that it not only served the pub- lic but the National Park Service as well."

Threat Seen to Shrine Circuses INDIANAPOLIS (AP) An official of Murat Shrine Temple here says the new national En- dangered Species Act threatens to put Shrine circuses out of business. The circuses help support 21 free Shrine hospitals. Cecil Byrne said Thursday that, if the law is strictly en- forced it would "wipe out cir- cuses and zoos across the U.S." Byrne said circuses, which de- pend on regular shipments of animals, are in trouble because of the ban on interstate trans- portation. "It lakes about six months to get a permit from the department of interior. You can imagine what that long a delay would do to a circus." An official of the Indianapolis explained that the intent of the law was to weed out unnec- essary use of endangered spe- cies and forestall unnecessary ation of them from the imperial wild.
