Center near Palm Springs AP Laserphoto Officials Hope For Large Kill Over One Million Hunters Stalk Whitetail Deer Today PITTSBURGH AP The nations largest group of li censed hunters fanned through Pennsylvanias woods this morning in pursuit of whitetailed deer belonging to a herd estimated to number Weve got million li censed said Ted Godshall a Game Commis sion spokesman Weve got million resident hunters and from out of state We lead the nation in both those figures In fact were head and shoulders above everybody Godshall added Even a state like Wyoming has only about Although unrestricted hunt ing nearly wiped out the whitetaileds in Pennsylvania by 1800 the states annual twoweek deer hunt is now 49 Miners Killed In Romania BUCHAREST Romania AP A gas explosion in a coal mine in northern Romania killed 49 miners and injured 26 the government announced today The announcement said the explosion occurred on Satur day in the Livezeni coal mine in the Jiu Valley No details of the explosion or of rescue op erations were disclosed Four cabinet members were named to a commission to in vestigate the causes of the ac cident and to adopt technical measures and organizational measures to insure labor se curity and the an nouncement said It said President Nicolae Ceausescu sent condolences to the families of the miners It was the worst mining ac cident reported in Romania since 36 miners were killed and 12 others injured in a gas explosion in Hunedoara coun ty in the western part of the country in 1972 Although official disclo sures of industrial accidents in Romania are rare rumors and unconfirmable unofficial reports of such mishaps are common Western economic experts believe rapid industri alization and relatively un skilled workers result in a high accident rate but they say reliable figures on this have never been available The investigating commis sion includes Labor Minister Emil Bobu Mining Minister Virgil Trofm Interior Minis ter George Homstean Health Minister Eugen Promca and General Prosecutor Nicolae Poporici billed as the most popular in the nation The hunting tradition is just so Godshall said Its handed down from gen eration to generation plus we do have excellent populations of game good geography and access roads so you can get to the The Game Commission hopes this years harvest will at least match the deer reported killed last year Oth erwise the commission says deer would overpopulate the state Usually over half the deer are taken the first day be cause activity in the woods keeps the deer moving Snow also makes the game easier to see but warm weather could keep the kill totals low Counting only government controlled land hunters have about 8 million acres to roam in search of deer Thats just a little less than onethird of the entire Godshall said In some areas hunters are welcome sights to farmers trying to protect crops from wildlife Some agriculture property is available to hunt ers who take time to ask per mission Weve got farmers around here who call me and say Please send me hunters Ill show them where they can find all the deer they said Steve Kleiner a game protector for Greene County An estimated hunters will converge on rural Potter County the leader in deer kills and perhaps the richest in hunting mystique Buck fever affects nearly every segment of Pennsylva nia society Blue collar work ers bargain to have opening day off and in sparsely popu lated northern counties some schools and factories close The fever will also be evi dent among state employees Opening day is not a regu lar holiday for them but boy there wont be too darn many of them in their Godshall said The tradition also lives among white collar workers like Doug Mclndoe whos desk at a Latrobe bank will be empty Its good therapy for he said Only thing is after carrying on with a bunch of guys Ill have to reposition my thoughts and actions for com ing back into the real For many including Mcln doe bagging a deer is second ary to getting out in the woods I just go out and find a nice comfortable spot and if a deer comes by me I shoot him Ive taken four shots in eight he said LOS ANGELES AP Ronald Reagan

will become a Cabinetlevel coun selor to the new president said Sunday that Reagan has made definite and he is in the process of imple menting some of those Asked about that as he re turned to Los Angeles Reagan said Yes thats But Im not ready to say that we are ready to an nounce As he left Palm Springs Reagan said he would spend the first few months of his presidency concentrating on the economy Asked if he believed he could improve the economy soon Reagan replied I dont know how soon It took a long time to get in this mess but we are going to The presidentelect planned to continue

more difficult for Reagan to choose a Cabinet Remember it has been less than 30 days since Ronald Reagan was elected presi dent and I dont believe any president in history has an nounced his Cabinet

sketched a detailed psychological portrait of the man based on consultations with a psychologist Howenstein would not name the psychologist involved and would give no details on how the profile was constructed The thread of similarity be tween the slayings has to do with what appears to be the ritualistic as pect of the Howenstein said This person is motivated to put his victims through a degree of psy chological torture to put them in very uncomfortable physical posi tions and make them plead for their he said All the bodies were found face down he said and he said this indicated the victims
