An Indian tiger, remnant of an endangered species, frolics in a New Delhi zoo. Once plentiful on the Indian subcontinent, the magnificent cats now face extinction, according to some authorities. Less than 35 years ago, Indian s tiger population was placed at more than 50,000. Today, by official estimate, there are fewer than 2,000. The steep decline is said to be due almost entirely to the killing of tigers by men.

Boyle Appeal of Murder Verdict Delayed by Firing
A Boyle of his first degree murder conviction has been postponed until Feb. 17 because of the firing of the prosecutor in the case.
A county court judge post poned the appeal hearing at the request of special prosecutor Richard Sprague and defense attorney A. Charles Benito.
Sprague, who was fired as Philadelphia’s first assistant district attorney on Dec. 5, told the judge in a letter that "a funny thing happens to me on the way to the courthouse.”
Sprague said as a result of his dismissal by the Philadelphia district attorney he has lost two assistants in the case and the murder case files were removed from the district attorney’s office and are “now in storage boxes."
Boyle was convicted last April in the shooting deaths of his union rival, Joseph Ya-blonskii, his wife and daughter

CAMBRIDGE. Elkland (AP) — A man telephoned a teller at a Cambridge bank Wednesday, told him he had kidnaped his wife and demanded IO,(MN) pounds ($23,-000).

WASHINGTON (AP) -Among viewers of television quiz shows these days may be an Internal Revenue Service agent.
The IRS agents’ interest is not in entertainment, but to make sure the government gets its tax share of the prizes.
When it come*s time for the quiz show winner to pay taxc*s, the IRS may check to make sure that the winnings were de*clared. If not, the taxpayer may be invited in to talk about it.
The IRS isn’t interc*sted in just money prizes. It expects taxpayers to declare as income the value of any merchandise prize's, such as an automobile or refrigerator.
The growing number of official state lotteries and the new popularity of television quiz shows has prompted queries to the IRS about how prize winnings should be handled.
MAGAHA. Wis. (AP) -Three years after the paper mill that employs 650 re*sidents of this northern Wisconsin community was to be closed, its employes split a pre-Christmas plum, $500,000 in profit-sharing funds.
The bonuses re*pre*sent about three weeks’ pay for workers at the Niagara of Wisconsin Paper Corp mill and mark a climb upward for the community and the employes.
Kimberly-Clark Corp , which had owned the null since 1898. announced three years ago that it was seeking to sell the operation “to improve the company’s future profitability."
The news hit hard in this community of 2,300 on the Menominee river and in ne*arby Cppe*r Michigan, where most of the firm’s employes live. The mill was the area’s major industry.
Kimberly-Clark said it wanted out because the publica-tion-grade pape*r market was down and it had pollution-con-trol problems with the state. The company said if it couldn ’t sell, it planned to shut down the plant.
Pentair Industries of Minneapolis purchased the property after Local 205 of the Pulp Sulphite and Paper Mill Workers, which represents 550 production workers, agreed to a new three-year contract that excluded pay increases.
One provision of the agreement called for the crea lion of a profit-sharing this year. And just in time for Christmas, 1974, the null workers took home their rewards.
“We’ve se*en a lot of pe*ople rally around a mutual goal
Money won as a prize is treated the same as any other income for tax purposes. *
For example, a person with $15,(MN) gross income and three dependents and who claims the standard deduction on a joint tax return would end up paying a tax of $220 on a $1,(MN> prize.
The tax on the first $15,0(N) on income would amount to $1,820. The $1,000 prize would be treated as additional income, increasing the tax due to $2,040
IRS spokesmen say a person winning a big one-time prize might get some tax break by
averaging out the winnings over a period of several years, a procedure called tax-averaging.
“It Has Ways"
The IRS doesn’t usually check up on small amounts, but it has ways of being informed about the larger prize's, espe*cially those of $H)M) or over.
For one thing, lotterie*s, race tracks and quiz show sponsors
which has resulted in increased production and quality,” said William Beer-matt, executive vice-president and general manager of Niagara of Wisconsin. “Everybody knows if they produce they will share the profits."
Martin Ponzio, president of the union, said the experiment “shows you can still believe in people and that there is still hon<*sty in business,
“I had my doubts when we signed our contract with Pentair. But just about everything they told us then has happened ”
There was also some outside help
The state agreed to delay pollution abatement orders two years and seek a corporate tax break, which was passed by the 1973 legislature. Pentair installed a $16 million pollution abatement facility this year.
The market for the mill’s coated papers, used for magazines and catalogs, also improved, pushing Pentair’s net income from $378,09)) in 1971 to $1.3 million for 1973 The* firm estimates that 85 percent of its profits were e*re*ated by the paper null.
Although the contract which expires next April did not call for any pay incre*use*s, Pentair volunteered two 23-cent-an-hour raise's, one* in Septeml>e*r. 1973, and another last May, Ponzio said
He* said the average production wage is now about $4 50 pe*r hour
The firm also voluntarily began contributing $55 per month pe*r employe to a union pension plan, lie1 said
are required to report to the IRS prizes of $600 or more. These reports then can be checked against the winner’s tax return.
in addition, it is not uncommon for IRS agents to monitor quiz shows and clip newspaper accounts of lottery and other prize winners, although agents are not regularly assigned to such monitoring activities.
Tax returns of professional gamblers also may be subjected to special scrutiny, an IRS .spokesman said.
Tax returns for 1974 wont in the mail immediately after Christmas. The IRS e*stimates about 83 million returns will be* filed for 1974, compared with 81 million last year.
Technically, taxpayers should declare as income all prize or gambling income, even a $10 office football pool or mone*y won in a weekend poker game, regardless of whether it was legally obtained
Education Chief: Home Vital in Child's Learning
SALT LAKE CITY (DIM) -Ifs too late to teach children to be smart when they get to school, U.S. Education Com-missione*r T. IL Bell says.
In an speech at Westminster college, the former Utah school superintendent said the re*search showed the capacity to learn quickly and with ease could be* significantly expanded beyond that inherited at birth
But a child’s basic in-te*llige*nee has been just about formed by the* time he reaches school age. Bell told a 100th anniversary convocation.
“Think of the re-education that teachers and teacher-educators need be*fore they can communicate to parents the nc*ed to start teaching their newborn infants and continue teaching them during those first fe*w years of life,” he* said
He described the research findings as “possibly one of the* most important discoveries of the 2Uth Century in education ”

KENILWORTH, N. J (UPI)
— For 37 years, Arthur Saha has dreamed of different worlds and envisioned better future's.
He is one? of a small group of science fiction buffs which call themselves “first fandoms.”
They are an informal group of 230 who qualify for membership because* the*y have be*cn reading, collecting and thinking about the possibilities for mankind beyond the planed c*arth since 1938.
“I think it is my way of seeing the world and all its potentials,” says Saha, whose suburban home in Kenilworth houses around 10,0(8) science fiction publications, many of them collectors’ Items.
Saha, president of the New York Science Fiction Club “Lunacon”, is an expert on science fiction. His collection is known throughout the country and he frequents gatherings of other science fiction fans all over the world.
As a youth growing up in northern Minnesota, Saha says, he was one of only a small group of teenagers who shared their fantasie*s and interests by corresponding and developed lasting friendships.
“People thought we were out of our leads and worlds. But many of the things we believed in — television, rockets, je*t planes — have come true," says Saha. “We have visions and dreams about what tomorrow will bring and that’s what keeps us going."
Today, science fiction fans meet for regional conventions and a yearly world convention, which will be held ne*xt year in Melbourne, Australia.
“We have our own lingo, language and certain acronyms and allusions that only fans can understand," he
Science fiction, Saha says, examines all futures and even has room for optimism
“My greatest joy is reading those upbeat storie*s that mankind is unbeatable,” says Saha. “I also really like those stories which discuss the sociological impacts of the future on emotions and feelings."
And science fiction has transcended the generation gap.
“I am equally at ease talking about science fiction with a 13-year-old boy and a 75-year-old man,” says the 51-year-old research chemist, whose interest in science fiction led him to study science.
Currently, science fiction is experiencing a renaissance, Saha says. It’s become popular especially with the young who are interested in exploring alternative ways of looking at the world.
“It’s something we started to love as children when it gave us a be*autiful, glowy way of looking at tomorrow," says Saha. “It was great especially when things were bad during the Depression.’’
Saha says science fiction has accurately predicted the development or invention of many things people today take for granted. But, first and foremost, it is fiction
“It is not intended and we don’t believe it to be true. It is an examination of what may happen,” he says "The world of imaginative literature encompasses everything. ”

In Communist countries, Meyer said, total censorship remained.
The IPI, an association of publishers and editors from non-Communist countries around the world, issue's an annual report on the state of press freedom.
“Watergate, with all the critical currents surrounding it, and the reactions to President Ford’s pardon decision have once again given the American press the opportunity to demonstrate its role of watchdog.
“looking back on the attitude of the media as a whole when faced with a vindictive and unscrupulous administration, and also allowing for certain exaggeration in the scurry of fighting, we have to state once more that the American press as a whole, and broadcasting to a large degree, show<*d the world a democracy conscious of its values and ready to defend them.
“In this affair the contribution of the American press in this worldwide fight for press freedom was an example to record in the* annals of prog-
