IU,AKKSI,j;K AP Science Itcporler : ST. LOUIS Wi — Chickens talk, in a cluck-nnd-squnwk code ol re- inarkab!o meanings, two scicntlsis reporfed today. They can say, "Hawk coming," or In a different sound, "Dog or danger nround." The linby chick says an equivalent of. "Hey, mom, I'm lost," and the hen can say, "Come here," or "Dinner's ready." The study of chicken language even suggests a scientific melhod of chicken stealing—of which more In a moment. The sound signals of chickens were analyzed by Dr. Nicholas Collias, zoologist now nt Cornell University, and Prof, arltn Jooa of the University of Wisconsin, in research at Wisconsin. The chicken "talk" wns recorded by an electronic machine, (he Bpeclrograph. which translates sounds into wavy lines on paper. The lines give an objective record of the frequencies nnd Intensity. Prof. Joos mndc the recordings and Dr. Collias made the Interpretations, described today to the American Association for the Advancement, of Science. Wavy lines show when a chick is chirping in pleasure, or In distress at being alone, hungry, cold or thirsty or hurt.' The frequency or timing of the chirps Is different. The brood hen clucks as she ', .summoning her chicks to ly>r, ,Dr. c^]|i, s . S(1 i d: she about two clucks per second. : When.the hen discovers food, she 'clucks rapidly, about four clucks .a second, -to call her chicks to join the feast. At night, when she roosts, site gives a purring sound, lasting about 154 seconds, lo bring nil chicks under her wing. •_• If a hawk appears, chickens have on alarm scrcnm, loud and raucous, that sends chicks running to shelter.

He made the remark on the Dec. 21 show. "This was not wittingly nn antireligious remark," Kaufman said.

They hope to bo the first family to drive the entire distance of the Pan-American Highway, circling South America in a rugged 23,000- mile trip which they expect will Inkc from 18 months" lo two years to accomplish. ; "We've planned a day-by-day itinerary for IB months," explained pretty blonde Dortia Lament airily •ami serenely. "We are going to live for short povjods with people in the towns and villages along the way.

Our truck is a work vehicle nnd we can use It to help people who need it along the route." Waller Lament sold his Green- wich Village moving company, and the family has acquired a IVi-ton truck with n special steel body which resembles a king-size station wagon. It is equipped with a winch on the front, for use in pulling itself out of trouble and assisting others. "The highway is the highest and wettest road in the world." said Dortia. Among the equipment going on the trip is a Geiger counter, extra water tanks, altimeter, rifles, cameras. "We're taking clothing for climates from arctic to tropic," she said. "We're taking medicine for everything from snakebite to frost bile. We've rend everything we can lay hands on about the countries we're going through.

After friends had pleaded with him tar three hours Sunday morn- Ing, Cox nicked out a gravel pit on a ranch near here as a target and dived from an altitude of 6,800 feet. "I'll meet you at the gravel pit," he told the friends by radio.
