(AP) The chairman of the Federal Reserve System 'said today a policy approaching wage and price control may be necessary temporarily. Arthur F. Burns told the 17lh annual monetary conference of the American Bankers Associa- tion: "We should not close our minds to tha possibility that an incomes policy, provided it, stopped well short of direct price and wage controls and was used merely as a supple- ment to over-all fiscal and mo- netary measures, might speed us through this transition period of cost push inflation." Cost push inflation Is caused by continuing high cost of labor and materials rather than by excessive consumer and busi- ness demands. Burns said government inter- vention to control excessive wage and price costs would be "completely impractical" over Attorney Uses Yoga to Escape SAN DIEGO, Calif.

"The excess demand that be- deviled our economy during the past four of.five years has been he said. "After a long period of overheating, the first signs of moderation in price behavoir, though halting and slow; have begun" to ap- pear."

The ebullient blonde who once made headlines across the na- tion because bl her antics on and off the strip joints' runways has had the trial hanging over her pretty head for more than a year now. Officers, waiting until early in the morning, watched Candy ar- rived home and followed her into the house. The said they found marijuana seeds and shreds of the plant in her room. She was out of jail in a few moments under bond. Candy, preferring that to her real name of Juahita Dale Phil- lips, to which can be tacked Sahakian and Wilson, served time in Goree Prison on another marijuana charge originating in Dallas. She said she only was holding the weed for a friend. At that point, she was making a week on the strip lease circuit stretching from the West Coast to New Orleans. there, the colonel gestur- ing.

LYNNE LOUISE ABNPIY pre-mcd graduate DAVID MAX BROWNLEE basketball, tennis Abney, Brownlee Anderson Winners Fossils of 'Missing Link' Under Geologic Microscope EAST LAN'SING, Mich. (AP) A geology professor says a fossilized creature has been found which seems to be the missing link In the evolutionary development of animals with backbones. "The animal Jills the gap be- tween vertebrate and inverte- brate animals which had existed since man began to classify ani- said Dr. Harold W. Scott, chairman of the geology department of Michigan State University. He described the fossil as "the most interesting animal that has been found in my life- time." Scott said it appeared that the creature inches long and wilh the Latin name Jochrica i wellsensis, was a direct ances- tor of primitive fish. In turn, fish are believed by scientists to be the ancestors of all verte- brate creatures with backbones, including man. The professor said lochriea wellsensis "is merely the Latin- ized name of a family of people, friends of mine, named 'Lochrie.1" Scott said the first known fos- sils of the'crealure were found last summer in central Montana by William Melton, curator of the geology museum at the Unl- vcrsity of Montana. Melton sent the fossils (o Scott. Both arc analyzing them. The creature resembles a minnow, has a thin skin with netlike markings, a primitive digestive system lo strain out plankton, and a rudimentary stiffening rod which appears lo be (he predecessor of a back- bone. Scott said it appeared to be the first known creature able to propel itself other than by wig- gling or crawling like worms and olher simpler forms of life. It used a tail fin to swim. it was headless but had an oral opening at one end where food was ingested. Scott said the actual speci- mens were about 200 million years but that the same type of creature existed about 425 million years ago. Scientists consider that fish evolved about 400 million years ago.

"C'cst la he said. "That's war." By late afternoon, as the clouds closed over and. rain be- gan falling, the Skyraiders re- turned for another attack. This time they concentrated on the university complex at tlie edge of the city, where some enemy had once been reported. Unknown lo the planes, whose pilots had no radio contact with the Cambodian troops, more Cambodian reinforcements were moving toward the city and were near the university. From the air, .or even close up, it is difficult to tell Cambo- dian troops from North Viet- namese regulars. Both wear green uniforms, both carry Communist-made AK47 rifles. The diving planes caught many of the newly arrived troops in the open. At least 10 bodies were counled in one area. One lay on the wel pavement that he had Iried to cross wilh a plastic bag of green apples still clutched in his hand. WEATHER U.S. DEPARTMENT OF COMMERCE ES5A WEATHER BUREAU ip, Pg.

By ELLIE RUCKER anrt BETTY GRISSOJI CAP Accomplishments Requested by Reader Q. What Is the purpose of (he CAP program? What have they accomplished since the start of Ihe local program? A. Purpose is to train people to help themselves. They've developed a system of workers in neighborhood centers who help the people find ways to raise tlieir standard of living by providing transportation to employment agencies, working with potential school drop-mils, encouraging them to slay in school and counseling with potential suicides. They teach them how lo live on a budget, help them npply'. for available commodity foods im'd old-ago pensions and slrive lo help solve each indi- vidual's particular need. In addition lo Ihe neighborhood aide system, CA11 has set up basic education courses at the Ccnlcrs, provided a family planning clinic and helped initiate the food commodity program. It developed "College Night" where yoiilhs arc encouraged lo cnier college and are told how to do so; helped set up Ihe Jol) Fair and has acted as a clearing house for minority group people who need jobs. Center Director Ben Aguirre Invites any interested individuals lo accompany him on his daily rounds to see their accomplishments. 0.

And utial Is the approximate cost? -We recently saw a Red Sox game and I think we counted up to about 70 and lost (rack. A. Bill Crowlcy, Public Relations Director for the fioston Tied Sox, told Action Line that five dozen baseballs are used per game on the average, at an approximate cost of per ball. All major league clubs get Ihe benefit of a volume discount, which doesn't apply to the same baseballs purchased in retail snorting good stores. Q. I always read (he "Public Records" In Ihe paper. Quite often I sec where cases are dismissed "with prejudice." Can you tell me what this means? A. It means Ihe suit cannot be filed again, that re-filing is prohibited. This ends any further course, of action. You .could say the case was dismissed with prejudice against re-filing.- Sometimes In such cases the two sides have made an .agreement outside court, and this keeps the case from ever being brought Into court again.
