Relations Grow Warmer Between Windsor, Family LONDON (CP) Relations between the Royal Family and the Duke of Windsor, which have long suffered from the ab- dication crisis of 1936, appar- ently are continuing to improve. The latest development in this direction takes the form of a DUKE OF WINDSOR pleased CHARLES visits ex-king aturday night visit paid to the uke in Paris by Prince terles. Charles has returned to Lon- on after the meeting but ths vent may have a lasting effect the sense of promoting greater warmth between the ormer king Edward VHI and us relatives here. Reports in the British capital escribed the visit at the duke's 'rench home as informal and mannounced. The Duchess of Windsor, was present. The. prince was accompanied y Christopher Eoames, British imbassador in Paris, and the liplomat's Nicholas. Prince Charles chatted with lis great-uncle for.more than an twur. Last year's investitute ceremony at Caernarvon, Vales, was later reported to mve been among the topics oi conversation. After the meeting, a member of the duke's staff said the for- mer monarch, 76, was "greatly pleased." The visit came after the prince had been out shooting :he spokesman for the duke's lousehold said. By ELLEN WALPOLE Andy sends a complete 20- volume get of the World Book Encyclopedia to Sherman Mc- laughlin, age 8, of Sandston, Virginia, for his question: How do birds find worms? A robin has his breakfast early, very early in the morn- ing. The early bird is more likely to catch a worm because worms go down to bed when the sun comes up. Some people say that a robin can hear the soft rustle of a moving worm. Some say he puts his beak close to the ground to smell for worms. Some say his bright eyes stare down to spot a pink worm in the grass. For a long time the real experts were, not sure how a clever robin finds a worm. Many people wonder about this question and now at last we seem to have the answer. For one thing, we are sure that robin cannot smell out a worm in the ground. His nos- trils are two small holes in hss beak. But the sniffer inside his nose is not very good and he cannot smell much of anything. When he hunts far his early breakfast, he hops a few jerky bops, then stops and cocks his little head to one side. He seems to be listening with bis ear fairly dose to theground But where is his ear? Actually a bird's ears are jusl where you would expect them to be one on each side of his head. But he has no outer ears, His ears are inside his head The openings are covered with skin and feathers. The rea work is done by inner- ears an( a robin can hear very well. Maybe his hidden ears are sharp enough to hear all sorts of soft rustlings in the grass But actually he does not cock his head to listen for worm crawling on or under the ground Notice those bright little eye of his. Your eyes are side bj ride, facing front. Both of them see the same view. A robin': eyes are placed on opposit sides of his feathery head. He has two different views, one on each side. Each eye sees a round view and the tw round windows meet and cros over in front of his beak. I this small cross-over section both eyes see the same view and this is where he sees the best. But he has to keep turn ing his head to focus on thi narrow section of the view. Tliis js why he cocks his head. So when worm hunting, h hops a few steps, stops an cocks his head. He is focusin his eyes on a certain sma piece of the ground peerin for a worm. If he sees IK worm, he hops a few mor jerky hops and stops for an other good look. After man tries he may spot a juicy worn crawling home to hide in hi burrow all day. Or he may se just the end of a worm, peepin out from a burrow. Then a tu of war begins. The robin grab the end of the worm in his bea and pulls. But the worm pul too and he can pull quite hard though usually the robin wins Sometimes the worm gets pul ed in two pieces and the robi gets only The other half ft down in the burrow. And all things, sometimes this lalf a worm manages to re- row himself and become a ill-sized worm again. A robin.is always famishec jecause he keeps so very busy e would like to eat 60 worm day, if he could catch tha .any. He never does. So hrough the rest of the day h nacks on berries and fruit ery early- next morning h oes hunting again in the dew} grass. This the; most likel me and the. most likely plac D find worms.

Gas Pipeline Okayed After Export Boost OTTAWA (CP) The na tional energy board .did not ap prove the construction of a pipe line to carry natural gas to the United States before cabine had approved expanded gas ex ports, Energy Minister .1. J Greene told the Commons. Mr. Greene was questionec closely by New Demo era Leader T. C. Douglas. Mr. Greene said that th board had.approved construe tion of pipeline to carry. Cana dian gas to Canadian consumer early in the summer. But the board's decision o the pipeline to carry gas to th U.S. was made simultaneous! with its decision to recomme'n the export of 6.3 trillion cubi feet of what it deemed to b surplus gas. Both recommendations ha been sent to cabinet at the sam time, the minister said. 1971 PLYMOUTH BARRACUDA Hormone Meat Banned WASHINGTON (AP) Swe- den has informed the United States it will no longer permit he importation of meat from animals fattened with hor- wnes. the ban, imposed last month, adds to a confusing worldwide ratchwork of laws and proce- dures aimed at regulating the use of such hormones as dieth- ystilbestrol. Virtually all beef in United States is fattened with his hormone, which also is called DES. The impact of Swe- den's decision is not clear, since officials say other nations which lave imposed similar bans have reached some sort of accommo- dation with existing U.S. prac- ices. The U.S. Food and Drug Ad ministration says a requirement that farmers withdraw hor- mone-laced food from cattle 48 hours before marketing protects Americans from eating DES, which is banned from the U.S. ocd supply because it caused cancer in mice. Government tests, however, lave turned up DEE residues in >eef supplies to each of'the last ive years. Canada does not restrict the mport of meat from animals given the DES growth-additive Air Canada Observes Anniversary HALIFAX (CP) Air Canada commemorated today the 50th anniversary of transcontinental flight by giving passengers certifi- cates. Of the first cross-Canada flight Oct. 7, 1920, the certi- ficate says, in part: "The journey was made uncharted skies without radio or accurate radio information. It took 10 days and seven aircraft." Jets now carry passen- gers across the country in seven hours. an agriculture depart ment spokesman said. Government requirements stipulate that animals can not be given the hormone within 72 hours of slaughter, "thereby eliminating the effect of the drug." Use of DES is prohibited in dairy cattle, poultry and swine and can not be given to cattle until they reach a weight of 400 pounds, he said. U.S. Natural Gas Shortage Now Stark, Grim Reality HOUSTON, Tex. (AP) Pe- roleum engineers were told ;oday a natural gas shortage in he United States now is a stark, grim reality. H. M. Sampson, vice-presi- dent for corporate development of the Northern Natural Gas Co., said the situation calls for all governmental policies affect- ing energy to be pulled together and conflicts eliminated. "The energy industries must have a uniform, sensible policy on leasing public lands, tax credits, pollution guidelines, and Sampson said. The remarks by the Omaha, Neb., executive drew support from B. R. Dorsey, president of the Gulf Oil Corp. at Pittsburgh, Pa. Dorsey said environment and energy scarcity have dramati- cally pointed up that the U.S. must define its national energy goals more carefully. Sampson and Dorsey partici- pated in a panel on "Supply En- ergy Requirements" at the 45th fall meeting of the ber Society of Petroleum Engi neers. They said gas from Canad: and Alaska, imported liquifiet natural gas, gasification of coal nuclear power, and from shale and .oil sands, plus aggressive exploration p r o- grams onshore and offshore offer solutions to energy re quirements of the future bu that economic incentives t carry out technological ac vances are essential. Sampson said a general in crease of five cents, a cubic feet, and preferable 1 cents, is needed for all wellhea gas prices controlled by th Federal Power Commission. "This would be enough, but not too much to encourage sub- stantial new gas exploration and he said. LEADS PASSING Ottobtr 7, If78 THI HKAIB M Sharp Turns Down Kidnap Demands Sophomore John Reeves of Florida led the collegians of the United States in passing last season by completing 222. He passed for 24 touchdowns. OTTAWA (CP) External Affairs Minister Mitchell Sharp announced in the Commons Tuesday night that he kidnappers' which include the release of 'political prisoners" and their safe conduct to Algeria or Cuba "wholly unreasonable de- mands and their authors could not have expected them to be accepted." The minister added: "I need hardly say that this set of de- mands will not be met." In the balance is the life of James Richard Cross, British :rade commissioner in Montreal ddnapped Monday at gunpoint >y mea who roused him from led after entering his home on the pretext of delivering a birth, day gift. Mr. Cross was 49 Sun- day. A document purporting to be from the terrorist Front de Lib- eration Quebecois which claims responsibility for the kidnapping was left at the door of Montreal radio station CKAC Tuesday night in reply to Mr..Sharp's statement. It reiterated that "we will do away With him (Mr. if the demands are not met. It said the kidnappers "will not let go" of their prisoner and "don't give a damn about Sharp." The statement said Mr. Cross was in good health and had been permitted to write a letter to his wife which was placed in a downtown mail box. Robert Lemieux, a Montreal lawyer who has defended a large number of terrorists on charges involving such activi- ties as placing bombs, told a news conference Tuesday he had "no doubts" the commis- sioner would be "executed il kidnappers' demands are not met." He also said the federal gov- ernment was playing a "danger- ous cat-and-mouse game" with Mr. Cross' life. The external af- fairs minister should have sug- gested ways for the abductors t o establish communications leading to the diplomat's safe release. Mr. Sharp outlined the kid nappers' demands in the Com mons, summarized as: 1. The police investigation must be stopped; 2. Wide press and television publicity to be given to a so called political manifesto of the FLQ; 3. More than 20 prisoners to be released; 4. Facilities for their transpor- tation by plane to Cuba or Al. geria to be 5. Rehiring of Montreal postal drivers laid off last winter on the terms and conditions set out by the union before the break- down of negotiations; 6. A ransom of in gold bullion to be paid; 7. Public disclosure of details about an alleged informer in the FLQ. NCLUDE FAMILIES The terrorists also demanded hat the wives and children of he prisoners be allowed to join hem if they wish. In addition to the prisoners, he kidnappers' demands said Andre Lessard, Pierre Marcil and Rejean T r e m b 1 a y, "at wesent out on bail, must be al- owed to join their patriot com- rades and leave Quebec if they so desire." Refugee Plan Gets Cool Reception JERUSALEM (AP) A for- eign ministry spokesman said here Israel views "negatively" a United Nations proposal to permit thousands of Palestinian refugees to return from Jordan to the Israeli-occupied west bank of the Jordan River. The spokesman said the pro- ..osal was met with a "cool reaction" and considered not practical. Laurence Michelmore, direc- tor of the United Nations Works and Belief Agency for Palestine refugees, said Monday the situa- tion in Jordan could be greatly eased if those who fled to the east bank as a result of the 1967 Arab-Israeli war would be per- mitted to return. Some of the or so Pal- estinians who departed in 1967 were subsequently allowed to return to the west bank. Israel has based its reluctance on wholesale resettling outside a Middle East peace settlement on the argument that it would be opening the door to Arab saboteurs.
