Massapequa, N. Y., Aug. 3) (JP¡ — An abortive uprising among the Simian residents of Frank Buck's zoo on Long Island's Sunrise highway was still smouldering today, but authorities announced the situation was nominally under control. In diplomatic language, that was interpreted to mean that of the 173 monkeys which walked off the reservation In the wake of "Capone," » flhesus monkey, the ringleaders were known and would be dealt with summarily when caught. Forty-five rebels had been cap- :ured and four casualties so far were recorded. One monkey showed improper respect for a charged third rail on the Long Island railroad. Three others were killed by high tension wires. The monkeys spread rapidly, singly and in groups. One was captured early today in Babylon, 14 miles away, by a youth who, for his prowess, gets a season pass to Buck's zoo. Contrary to rumor, no press censorship has been established. Communication lines were open, and « spokesman for the bring-'em-back- alive exponent of jungle etiquette freely discussed the origin of the Simian frnedom movement. "There was no cause," he said, "except a lack of discipline. Certainly no coup d'etate was accomplished." More than a dozen of the rebels deserted the cause last night and returned to (heir quarters. Offers in compromise, consisting of bananas, wen: rejected today by one group of the insurgents who executed a flank movement on the zoo from nrroFs the railroad tracks. In reply, thr zoo administration called for ¡••tern measures in the form of fire Inrtflors -vhcn the rebels mounted a ÍUu-polr. A repiTMintatlvc of the zoo, a golden Gibbon monkey "with a voice like an opevn riiv.i"—or so the zoo said— will br ?ont to the woods tonight to treat with the monkeys still at large in an endeavor to obtain their surrender. From Frank Buck himself, enroute to this country, came disturbing news—he is bringing back 2,000 more monkeys of the same stripe as those who participated In the rebellion.

B. Tuggle, a newcomer to Emporia from Scott City, who Is living in the Kennedy apartments, reports that the migration from the hot, dry dustbowl section of western. Kansas is much greater now than during or immediately following the dust storms. Mr. Tuggle, who has lived around Garden City, Lakin and Scott City for 50 years, believes that relief will be needed more the coming winter in some sections of western Kansas than last year. Many of the persistent residents who were determined last spring to stick it through have lost hope and are ready to leave the country, said Mr. Tuggle. Around Scott City the prospects for a forage crop are gone. With the exception of green irrigated tracts and a narrow belt on the south of the Arkansas river in the sand hills, little growing vegetation is seen. Mr. Tuggle reports that the present summer temperatures have been normal and that the nights are cool, but only a little rain has fallen since early in June. Cattle, which were stricken during the seige of the dust storms last spring, still are dying from the after-effects, Mr. Tuggle said. A Cow Ate Dirt. Recently an autopsy performed on dead cow at Scott City, revealed ;hat the animal had a large clod of :arth in one of her four stomachs. It is assumed that the cow had eaten the dirt, but couldn't digest it, Tug- rle said. The seemingly inexhaustible supply of sheet water common :n southwestern Kansas, has dropped 1 'i feet below the normal level, Mr. Tuggle found. Mr. .higgle is the father of Clem Tuggle, coach of athletics in the Atchlson High school. Clem Tuggle is a graduate of the Teachers College and was a track star while in school. Curran Tuggle, another son of Mr. and Mrs. Tuggle, will begin his third year's work at the Teachers College in September.
