Bug experts work mosquito varieties By DOUG SMALL OTTAWA (CP) Ever won- dered, glancing down at the re- mains of a mosquito you've messily mushed all over your arm, which of 68 varieties it was? Probably not. But agriculture department bug experts, work- ing with about freeze- Prison plans public tours SAN FRANCISCO (AP) "And that was Al Capone's cell, up there at the end, on the sec- ond tier." The tour director was point- ing to a steel cubicle where the late Chicago crime czar spent his years on Alcatraz, home for federal convicts for 29 years. It was closed in 1962. The National Park Service, current overseers of the aban- doned prison, plans to start public tours Nov. 1 after receiv- ing thousands of requests from people curious to see the no- torious island penitentiary in San Francisco Bay. Behind the bars, steel doors and gun walks once strode the elite of American crime. Be- sides Capone, there was Basil (The Owl) Banghart, Terrible Roger Touhy's triggerman; and Creepy Karpis, Canadian gun- man, kidnapper and graduate of Ma Barker's U.S. midwestern gang of the 1930s. Reporters were given a pre- view tour Thursday. From this prison at least 25 prisoners tried to escape. Five were shot to death and at least 12 were recaptured before they made it into the water. In 1962, John Paul Scott, a Kentucky robber, made it all the way to shore, the first ever to have done it. He was recaptured. Plans visit OTTAWA (CP) Defence Minister James Richardson will make his first official visit to Canadian forces stationed in West Germany next week. Mr. Richardson, appointed to the defence portfolio last No- vember, has made only brief visits to Canadians on the NATO force in Europe. He will land in Lahr, head- quarters for the Canadian forces, Sunday night and jour- ney to Bonn Monday to meet West German Defence Minister George Leber. On Tuesday he will visit Ba- tersoellingen to view Canadian facilities and talk to the men. On Wednesday he flies to Brussels where he will attend the spring meeting of NATO de- fence ministers the following day. dried mosquitoes, are preparing a manual that could tell you. Reason for the work, which began about 10 years ago, is to supply ecologists and "mosquito abatement personnel" with a quick, handy way of identifying the 68 known species that play an active part in outdoor sum- mer living. Roy Ellis and Monty Wood, scientists at the department's entomology research institute, joined the project last Decem- ber and say they hope to com- plete the manual sometime next year. The only manual now avail- able was published in 1955 and covers all of North America. Of the 68 species at least 60 are blood feeders which attack people, the scientists say. The ones in the North "have a well- deserved reputation for being the most vicious." "Mosquitoes north of the tree line feed mainly on caribou which have thick fur and travel quickly over the barren tun- says Dr. Wood. "As a re- sult the mosquitoes must be able to fly fast, be aggressive and feed quickly." Northern mosquitoes also breed in greater numbers, mainly because of large water areas. Mosquito populations may be as high as five million an acre. During the summer, the sci- entists collect larvae from pools of water where the insects breed. These are studied under microscopes, measured and identified during the winter. The specimens are freeze- dried to preserve them in as natural a state as possible. The scientists admit that there is one species of Canadian mosquito capable of carrying malaria, but say this only hao- pens in warmer parts of the country when an insect bites someone who already has ma- laria, then lives to bite another. "The chances of all these con- ditions existing at the same time and piece are extremely Dr. Wood says. Miller featured at Edmonton EDMONTON (CP) Roger Miller, will be the featured artist at the Klondike Palace during Klondike Days July 16- 28, the Edmonton Exhibition Association announced today in a news release. Miller will ap- pear July 19 to 27. Honor Truman JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) Harry Truman's birth- day, May 8, has been declared a holiday in the former presi- dent's home state of Missouri. The holiday will replace Presi- dent Jefferson's birthday, April 13. Truman died last Dec. 26. Foreign-made Canadian brands Ontario plans tourist gift items crack-down By JOE DUPUIS TORONTO (CP) Ontario is going to take a crack at getting rid of those foreign-made Cana- dian souvenir gift items tourists buy, replacing them with native crafts that bear a distinctive Ontario-made label. A start will be made this summer with a pilot project in the so-called north snore area of Northern Ontario nicks, and cedar, pine and oiher wood abounds for making toe trinkets tourists seek. As well, most of the of them wjjto live in the economically-de- pressed area are natural artists who have been producing native crafts in their homes for years. When the estimates of the ministry of tourism and in- dustiy come up for review in the legislature this month, a sum of will be sought to start the project. A boutique-styled centre will be established on Highway 17, at either Spragge or Serpent River, to display and sell native craft. The area comprises five town- ships, including the commu- nities of Massey, Algoma Mills, Espanola and Little Current, as well as part of Manitoulin Island. It's a five-year project the government hopes the people themselves will be able to take over in two years without pro- vincial subsidy. It also includes plans, working through the fed- eral manpower program, to train residents to pro- duce saleable crafts. MOST ON WELFARE The idea came from John Lane, Conservative member of the legislature for Algoma-Ma- nitoulin, who wrote to the min- istry April complaining the project was needed to pro- vide light work for residents, a third of whom are on welfare. Three months later, the min- istry submitted a memorandum to cabinet recommending the project as a means of "stimu- lating the native crafts industry in Ontario." The memorandum said the goal is "to eliminate completely the necessity of im- porting tourist gift items sym- bolic of Canada." inK> Ifis surefooted (front-wheel This sly cunning sedan can late the sharpest turns car type steering and It can stop straight in its tracks (special braking-steering And it doesn't eat much (makes a gallon goa long Best of can catch the Fox at your local Porsche Audi dealer.
