Cold grips Europ wan countries By REUTER Italian mountain peasants rought off packs of hungry wolves and a German lake completely frozen for the first tune this century Sunday as a late winter cold snap gripped Europe. Snow still lay in piles on the streets of Rome after Friday night's unexpected fall and thousands of villagers were cut off by drifts. For the first time in many years, the Vesuvius volcano out- side Naples was covered with snow. In West Germany, the Starn- berger Lake southwest of Mu- nich was completely frozen over for the first time since 1881. Most of Spain shivered and snow fell Sunday night in some northern parts of the country. The coldest weather for _ 42 years kept Belgium in its icy grip today with mid-day tem- peratures still below freezing France and upset many horse racing fixtures which were can- celled for the third day run- ning.

Soon they woul devour all the greenery and the young would starve. But th leopard helps to stop this from happening. Every day or so, he catcnes a deer or some other plant eater. This helps to keep down the deer population so that there is enough greenery for the next generation. Long ago, our human ancestors had to cope with the powerful leopard. They had only spears and ar- rows to fight him off. Naturally they feared him and also the other large and mighty cats VOUW OF LIKE Me, W.CHOCK?
