Jeff echoed in only slightly lower tones. "HOW ARE asked another. "How are Jeff echoed. Then one of the stage yellers yelled something that didn't get back to Jeff's cars, something about drinking something. the echo echoed loudly. That was straightened out and the skit continued.

The pups are the first off- spring from a pair of Austra- lian Shepherd dogs flown from California to Abilene by Trea- nor. He hopes to place the pups on ranches where their instinct to herd can be put to beneficial use. In recent dogs have come to be used in Cali- fornia. But as far as is known they haven't been tried in Tex- as, i A native of Australia, the breed is an excellent herder. The breed is also known as the Australian keeps a herd under control by nipping al the heels of lagging live- stock. The dog is blue mottled or red-speckled. His coat is short, straight, somewhat harsh with dense undercoat. Height ranges from. 19 to 22 inches, weight from 32 to 35 pounds. The breed is supposed to have resulted from crossing the old blue merle type collie with the Australian Kelpie or sheep- dog. Some contend that the Aus- tralian Wild Dog (dingo) and the Dalmatian have a part in him. Two British Climbers Die On Red Peak MOSCOW (AP) Two British climbers on a Joint British-Soviet expedition fell to their death July 24 on Mt. Garmo in So- viet central Asia. The announcement was made Monday by Col. Sir John Hunt, who organized the first expedi- tion to top Mt. Everest in 1953 and the present expedition to the wild and beautiful Pamir Moun- tains. The expedition started with 18 men. The remaining six Britons will continue the assault on their major goal, the Peak of Communism, formerly called Mt. Stalin. Those killed were Wilfred Noyce, 43, and Robin Smith, 23, a philosophy graduate from Edin- burgh, Scotland. Noyce was a member of Hunt's Everest expe- dition when the mountain was topped in 1953 by Sir Edmund Hillary and Sherpa guide Tensing Norgay. Soviet officials said the bodies will be brought out by helicop- ter Tuesday. Hunt and three com- panions are expected to return to England with the bodies. The So- viet news agency Novosti said al first that Noyce and Smith were buried in a glacier on the moun- tainside because it was impossible to carry them down the steep slope. But Soviet officials in Dushambe, capital of the Tadzhik Republic, said the bodies woulc be lifted by helicopter to an air- strip. The two fell from the icy slope as they were returning from a base camp set up at the foot level. The party had been out 10 days and had conquered one of the three lofty peaks. The expedition started with 18 men. The remaining six Britons will continue the assault on Mt Garmo, once called Mt. Stalin. News of the accident was ra dioed to the British Embassy in Moscow from Hunt's base camp at Avodara Ravine, about 30 miles from the scene of the acci dent. Embassy officials said they had withheld the news until mem bers of the Noyce and Smith fam iiies could be notified. Mt. Garmo is in the Tadzhifc Republic near the point where its borders join those of Red China and Afghanistan. The British ex pedition arrived in the Soviel Union June 30. It was the second fatal acciden to befall British mountain climb ers this month.

IN ARIZONA Woman Loses in Attempt To Moke Abortion Legal By DON CARSON PrfOENIX; Ariz. 'AP) Mrs. Hubert Finkbine Monday lost her bid for guaranteed immunity from prosecution if she has an abortion rather than risk birth of a mal- formed child. There were hints the mother of lour children might undergo such operation without legal sanc- tion. Instead, he dismissed the case, saying there was no legal contro- versy; hence he had no authority to make such a decision and the matter was not properly before the court.
