August 26, 1974 Israeli callup is a success TF,I, AVIV, Israel (AP)- Israel enricd a practice call-up of thousands of military reserves two hours ahead of schedule today. Officials pronounced the exercise a success. The 24-hour drill was programmed to end at noon. But officials reported things went so smoothly that some of the reservists were sent home after three hours, and a communique announced the operation was finished at 10 a.m. 'Hie exercise began at noon Sunday with an announcement over the state radio and the broadcast of such mobilization code words as "Samson and Delilah" and "Slaughtered Chicken." The only trouble reported during the exercise was with civilian transport. Radio Israel reported many buses in the cities were mobilized to transport the troops, and long lines formed at bus stops. The declared purpose of the practice alert, which was well publicized in advance, was to test the reserves' readiness for another surprise Arab attack like the one which caught the government and the military command off guard last October. It was not known how many of the reserves, estimated to total more that 300,000, were called up. Radio Israel said there were "tens of thousands." Despite Israeli claims that the operation was entirely peaceful and just for practice, the neighboring Arabs accused Israel of war preparations. The Cairo magazine Rose el Youssef said the operation was a preliminary to occupation of southern Lebanon. In Damascus, Al Baath, the newspaper of Syria's ruling Socialist Baath party, repeated the charge that Israel was preparing to launch a new Middle East war. It said Syria was prepared to cope with any surprise attack.

Alligators come back to South Arkansas FBI joins theft probe NEWTON, Mass. (AP) — The FBI said today it has joined the investigation of the theft of an estimated $500,000 to $1 million in rare, 17th century Dutch paintings and drawings from a lawyer's home. George S. Abrams said Sunday his art works all are over 350 years old but are "relatively unsalable" because they are well known by collectors. Police said thieves entered Abrams' home in this Boston suburb sometime over the weekend. The theft was discovered Sunday when a patrolman spotted a white pillow case on a road near the lawyer's home. The case contained several works of art, later found to be part of Abrams 1 collection. Abrams said the "scholarly collection" was started about 15 years ago. But he said the thieves could have got away with more than they did. CAMDEN, Ark., A distin- citive member of Arkansas's environment, absent for many years, has returned. Countless alligators once slid freely through marshes and swampy bottomlands across south Arkansas, but disappeared from the scene some time ago due to poaching and other human pressures. Through the efforts of International Paper Company and the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission, alligators are being returned to areas of suitable habitat in the state, with the hope that they will multiply and renew Arkansas's alligator population. An endangered species, the alligator has multiplied rapidly under sound management in Louisiana to the point where that state is now making them available to other states where the reptile can be reintrouduced to areas in which they once abounded. In a recent stocking effort in Arkansas, 200 alligators were released on several remote sites chosen as areas in which the new residents once lived and should find suitable. "This effort to return alligators to selected remote areas on company lands in Arkansas has great promise," said Felix Dowdy, manager of International Paper Company's Western Woodlands Region, headquartered at Camden, "but the final results will not be known for some time. The determing factor will be whether the alligators released in each area remain to reproduce and begin rebuilding a population. "This will also depend greatly on whether or not the relatively small number of alligators released is subjected to poaching, which could destine the program for failure The neighbor is really into this ecology thing.

CHICAGO (AP) - Researchers said today that nearly half of all nonsmoking Americans have dangerous levels of carbon monoxide in their blood. And for those who smoke cigarettes, the problem is even more severe, the researchers at the Medical College of Wisconsin found. The study, contained in today's issue of the Journal of the American Medical Association, reports on a 30-month survey during 1969-72 of 29,000 blood donors living in urban,, suburban and rural areas. Automobile exhaust is a major source of environmental carbon monoxide. High levels of the noxious gas are especially harmful to the elderly, infants and heart patients. Federal standards set blood concentrations of 1.5 per cent or more of carbon monoxide as the harmful level. The study was done by Dr. Richard D. Stewart and his associates in the department of environmental medicine at the Milwaukee college. They found that 45 per cent of those tested had concentrations of carbon monoxide ex- ceeding tho fedora! standard. They also found that "tobacco smoking was the single most important factor" responsible for the highest concentrations of carbon monoxide. Smokers had three or more times the amount in their blood as nonsmokers. High levels of the gas reduce the amount of oxygen the blood can carry through the body. It can cause drowsiness, blurred vision and reduced mental alertness. Extremely high levels in confined places can be fatal. Geographical location, occupation and meteorological con- ditions also were found to in. fluence carbon monoxide concentrations in the blood. Three-fourths of those studied in Denver, Los Angeles and Chicago had greater than 1.5 per cent concentrations, in New York and Washington, D.C., 35 per cent were measured at that level. The researchers found that city dwellers consistently had higher blood carbon monoxide concentrations than persons living in suburban and rural areas. Among occupational groups, taxicab drivers generally had higher levels of carbon mono*, ide than others. Coal shutdown ends CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) — The nation's soft-coal miners returned to work today after a five-day memorial shutdown last week which reduced the country's coal stockpiles. For many miners, the shutdown was a glimpse into the future should the union call a strike later this year. Jerry Stevens, president of a UMW local in Indiana County, Pa., said he believes the UMW will strike. "Of course, we'll be off in November for three or four months anyway," he said. "I've been saving for three years for this one." Officially, the memorial period was to honor those who had died in the mines or from industry-related diseases. family center COUPON SAVINGS!
