Hard winter on moose population ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) -The hard Alaskan winter this year has not only driven the moose population down from highland feeding areas, but has caused an increased number of them to be killed along the Alaska Railroad tracks.

The big animals are known for their obstinacy about yielding the right of way to trains. INSURANCE  LIABILITY  BONDS  AUTO  FIRE ROSSITER AGENCIES LTD. ESTABLISHED 1911 Lower Floor 517 4th Ave. S. Phone 327-1541 They also have been synthesized. Dr. Jeffrey Bishop, the federal food and drug directorate's chief drugs adviser, said Tuesday studies in its use for therapeutic abortion are being conducted with federal authority by Dr. R. A. H. Kinch, chairman of obstetrics and gynecology at McGill University. Dr. Kinch, a top man in his field, headed the federal government's special advisory committee on safety and efficacy of birth control pills, which reported late last year. The drug produces contractions of the uterus and is being studied by Dr. Kinch, Dr. L. H. | Wolfe and associates for use in therapeutic abortion in the first 16 weeks of pregnancy. This is regarded as the safe period for inducing abortion. In addition, Upjohn Co. has applied to conduct clinical trials of prostaglandins in Canada for therapeutic abortions, for induction of labor when a woman is at or near full term and, possibly, in blood pressure therapy. Industry informants said discussions still are going on between Upjohn and the fed/era! food and drug directorate on the application for clinical trials. These involve authorization for limited use of the drug by qualified medical practitioners who must keep close surveillance over patients to whom it is given and submit detailed reports of their findings over the trial period. Clinical trials are required he-fore new drugs may be put into general use by doctors. The drag is given by intravenous drip to induce labor. To produce abortion, it is administered by vaginal suppository. Oil find report denied CALGARY (CP) - Panarctic Oils Ltd. discounted Tuesday night as premature published reports that announcement of a major oil discovery in the Arctic was imminent. The company said "a statement will be released" as soon as tests have been analyzed "and if found to be significant." Earlier reports said Panarctic would confirm this week whether it had made a discovery on King Christian Island in the Arctic, 1,700 miles north of Edmonton. The reports said cuttings from a relief well showed oil stains and indicated a substantial formation could lie beneath. "The King Christian well is presently bottomed at 2,779 feet and circulating pending testing," said Panarctic president Charles Hetherington. "Although rock cuttings have indicated the presence of flou-rescence and oil staining, earlier drilling operations in other wells in the Arctic islands have revealed the same evidence, but no significant results have yet been obtained." The relief well was started in November, 1970, to contain another drilling attempt which went out of control when it struck natural gas. The original well was contained in January after burning for 90 days, and the second well continued through the gas for-maton to see what lay beneath. Industry sources said earlier if an oil find is confirmed it would likely be a large reservoir because of the huge formation from which the gas well originated. want to make a change for the better?
