PLANE TESTED MOSCOW (AP) The TU- 144, the Soviet entry in the race to develop a supersonic trans- port for commercial use, hit a speed ol miles an hour in a recent test flight, Tass re- ported Monday. That is well over twice the speed of sound. The official Soviet news agency said the plane reached an alti- tude of feet MISSOULA, Monl. (AP) Civilization is closing in, even in the high mountain mead- ows and rushing streams, and the animals are fading away. The grizzly bear and timber wolf are among the ened species in the lofty Rocky Mountain ranges of western Montana and in sur- rounding states of the northern region of the U.S. Forest Service. The Forest Service has made public a list of endan- gered and rare species, say- ing it is lime to begin saving thcss animals, for there is not much time left. Included MI the list of en- dangered those which face immediate danger ol ex- tinction, arc the timber wolf, the whooping crane and the Montana west-lope cutthroat trout. Listed as rare are the grizzly hear, Arctic grcyling, spotted bat and prairie falcon, INCREASE IS UP Howard Foulger is chief of the division of range and wild- life for the northern region, which includes Montana, North Dakota, western South Dakota, northern Idaho and eastern Washington, He says: "Merest in the preserva- tion of wildlife has increased remarkably in the past few years, but people keep crowd- ing in. The animals may soon have no place to ga." The northern region is lightly populated. Montana, the country's fourth largest state in land area, has a popu- lation of only 694.000, oi- about four persons per square mile. The state was long rich in wildlife, and monuments mark spots where Indian tribes once herded buffalo to the edge of high cliffs, then stampeded them to then- deaths. Now the reminders of the Wild West, the "buffalo have been replaced by modern-day killers such as guns and chemicals. "Take the timber wolf, for says Foulger. "Chemical agents used by cattlemen to ward off preda- tors have thinned the species, and we need protection to avoid tlicir extinction." Foulger said the region is too big for maintaining exact counts of species. He said a species is determined to be in danger when sightings arc in- frequent or few are felled by hunk-, c. Finding a proper balance between the needs of man and those of wildlife is a perplex- ing one. Cattlemen regard the tim- ber wolf as the No. 1 threat, to livestock in some northern re- gion areas, and fight him with poison. Conservationists, oh the other hand, see the wolf as a valuable species, a mid. nig- ged animal, an important part set OTTAWA (CP) The Cana- transport commission i Tuesday set guidelines for a broad inquiry to examine causes of railway accidents. The inquiry, to begin Jan. 18, Russian union gift, offer rejected DETROIT (AP) A gilt offer from a Russian workers union has been "courteously rejected" by the United Auto Workers, a UAW spokesman has con- firmed. Jt was learned that UAW President Wood- cock mentioned the offer last week when the union's national General Motors Council met behind closed doors to recommend ratifi- cation of a new contract with the auto-maker. "We had enough trouble in connection with the strike without getting Moscow gold Woodcock told delegates. 1971. will bo a follow-up lo a hearing which Tuesday looked into three rail accidents in Ontario thai killed two men last summer. Those accidents, and a rising incidence of other railway acci- dents, prompted the decision to hold the January inquiry. D. H. Jones, chairman of the CTC tribunal conducting the hearing, said the inquiry is to cover 14 subject areas. They include maintenance and inspection of railway cars, signals and radios; inspection of track, structures and signals; operation of railroad signals, track motor cars and radios; handling of dangerous cargoes; accident procedures; rule in- struction; research and develop- ment by railway companies re- specting safety; supervision of train operation; and railway company rules and employee in- struction. Some of these topics obviously arise from evidence gathered in the hearing on the three acci- dents. A conference is planned for Dec. 14 in order to facilitate exchange of information among 'participants of the January in- quiry, and to bring to light problem areas not listed by the CTC. of the natural environment which deserve; preservation. The grizzly bear, huge, amazingly swift and some- times vicious, is a fabled sym- bol of the rugged mountainous country of the West, but m a n 's intrusions into the griraly's domain have brought tragedy and outcries against the animal. Maulings by angry hears are becoming common in Wy- omitigs Yellowstone National Park during summer months, when millions of tourists pour in. National attention was fo- cused on Montana's Glacier National Park in 1907 when an enraged grizzly killed two young co-ert? in a savage at- tack. Park officials have found a partial solution by flying the grizzlies to remote areas where meetings with humans are unlikely. Cutthroat trout are plagued by their popularity. One of the liveliest Western game fish, the trout are hounded by tour- ists and native fishermen xvho invade remote streams in search of the species. The Forest Service has ti a number of steps to alle'iste extinction of certain game. These include monitoring of streams to assure healthy water for fish, curbing poach- Prepare slate C RAN BROOK (Special) Cranbrook Chamber of Com- merce nominating committee [expects to complete its list of I consenting directors for 1971 I Gee. 2, for presentation at a membership meeting Dec. 9 when nominations from the I floor will also bo accepted.

Controversial scout may still top vard FOSTER, R.I. CAP) A scout official ruled Tuesday night that James Clark, 16, de- nied Eagle Scout, rank because he said he is an atheist, may ;et the award after all. Robert F, Parkinson, scout executive of the Narrangansett Council, met with the scout at his home and later issued a statement saying the issue was the result of "a grave misun- Young Clark read a statement to assembled reporters. "f have confirmed that my ideals are consistent with the Boy Scout oath and he said. "I wish to remain active in the Boy Scout program be- cause 1 believe in its aims and purposes of helping boys to be- come better men." Parkinson said he was satis- fied Clark's beliefs were con- jsistent with the Scout law. Clark still must appear be- fore a regional board of review which makes the final decision on all Eagle Scout awards. Parkinson announced last week the Eagle Scout award was being denied the youth be- cause his applicalion contained "no confirmation of duty to I God."
