So, in their effort to lure the northern Rocky Mountain wolf into view, biologists of the federal agency enlisted the howl of a near relative, the eastern timber wolf of northern Minnesota. For the last two winters, biologists Fred Christensen and Dennis Goyn have criss-crossed Wyoming’s Shoshone national forest in low-flying aircraft for wolf prints in the snow-. They repeatedly spotted tracks, but when the trail led into the high timber it blurred. No wolves were ever found As their next step, they obtained recordings made by another Fish and Wildlife Service biologist, David Mech, who has been studying eastern timber wolves. Both species are gray wolves. Experts believe their howls are similar enough that the scat-*ercd wolves of the Shoshone forest, east of Yellowstone national park, should respond to the recordings. The remnant population of northern Rocky mountain wolves in the area is believed lo number about 20. At one time the species ranged over wide areas of the West, but poisoning, trapping, hunting and land development brought about decline of the wolves, the Fish and Wildlife Service said. The experiment with recordings will continue through next month's thaw. If a pack is spotted it will be photographed and studied in an effort to determine its territory. Authorities have reported that in addition to recorded howls, wolves will respond to human imitations and even fire sirens. Jelly Beans for Tornado Victims AKRON, Ohio (AP) — Candy merchandiser Bill Honadle is giving 3.700 pounds of jelly beans to the children of tornado-stricken Xenia. He said he had more Easter candies than he needed and felt it bater to give them to the youngsters than to sell them at half price. “Any little bit that we could do we felt would be important to them,” he said Friday. He valued the candy at about $2,900. The Cedar Rapids Gazette: Fri., April 12, 1974 No Antis Pact in 1974: Kissinger WASHINGTON (AP) - Secretary of State Kissinger said Friday that there “would not be a permanent agreement this I year” on nuclear strategic arms; limitations with the Soviet Union. In a brief session with reporters, he said it was uncertain whether the U.S. and the Soviet Union could achieve a partial agreement in strategic arms limitation talks. This was the strongest public statement yet by any administration figure casting doubt on the likelihood of a SALT treaty limiting offensive nuclear weapons systems bv the end of 1974. President Nixon last month said he expected to reach a SALT ll agreement with Moscow this year.

FellmePs is in charge of North Viets Topple Base SAIGON (AP) - North Vietnamese troops and tanks Friday overran a ranger base 50 miles north of Saigon that had been under siege almost 14 I months, the Saigon command .said. Government military sources said waves of South Vietnamese bombers retaliated within hours ny leveling the base and attacking the Viet Cong headquarters at Loc Nimh, 25 miles farther north. A government spokesman said Tong Le Chan base was manned | by 259 rangers, and their fate was not known yet. He said 58 wounded men were awaiting evacuation by helicopter when the North Vietnamese attacked Thursday night and the rangers reported in one of their last messages that 40 to 50 more had been wounded during the night. 1    in 3 Repeats Crime: Survey WASHINGTON (AP) — A new justice department survey shows that one of every three federal offenders commits a new crime within two years after his release from prison. The survey, released Thursday. said the rate of repeat offenders among federal convicts is about the same or slightly less than the figures reported IO years ago in the last such study. Despite that, “the fact that it’s stayed the same or perhaps a little better means we are making progress,” said Norman Carlson, director of the Bureau of Prisons. Nowadays, Carlson said, federal prisons are getting a much larger proportion of so-called high-risk inmates likely to persist in committing crimes, with low-risk offenders more often placed on probation rather than 'behind bars. 20 YEARS AGO — Vietnam’s new war cabinet decreed total mobilization of all its male citi-j zens between 21 and 25 to fight the communist-dominated Viet-minh rebels. incentive. “Commutes” Where is everyone going?
