I've lasted blood and I want more, but I am not a man liv; ing a life of quiet desperation," says 34-year-old millionaire Peter Traynor.

The company's stock has shot from $1 to $20 a share. Traynor says, "I amass money because it measures the success of what I am doing, the way time measures a runner's speed. I am compelled to know how good I am." Traynor is good--the ultimate salesman, say some of his associates. In high school in Boston he turned an afternoon lawn mowing job into an $18,000-a-year part-time landscape business by his junior year. He came to California 10 years ago and started selling insurance. His first year total was $3 million, second year $8.5 million and third year $12 million.

Hoping to attract the thrill show fans, he has filmed "Steel Arena." about a daredevil stunt driver. Traynor, who is married and has four children, rises each working day at 6:30 a.m., slips into a sweat suit, drives his $20.000 Mercedes from Beverly Hills to UCLA and jogs seven miles. Where does the money game end? "By the time y o u reach the goal you set out to reach, there's another one ahead of you," Traynor says. "So the game goes on."

"They're such a joy to have around. YOU; get attached to them," Dr. Sampsell said Sun day. His role as a vet includes becoming a substitute parent for newborn animals whose moth- e r s - h a v e died or for those picked on by other animals, he laid. When this happens, he takes the young creatures to his house, a. short distance from the zoo. It is not unusual to see a jaguar pacing v the living room, bearcats swinging from almosl anything by their tails or steal- Ing bananas off the kitchen counter or a baby kangaroo swinging from a clothespin bag on a doorknob. And he said his wife long ago learned not to begin an eve King's conversation with "How did things go at the office to d a y ?

"They be cpme. too dependent on you, to people-oriented and won't b able to relate to ether an rrials." '"You not only have to wea them from the bottle, but yo have to wean them from th lother image, no matter what lat image might be," he dded. "For, as soon as you ke them, you're stamped with le mother image, as far as ley are concerned. They are ompletely dependent on you." Sampsell said his children-Jina, 12; Cheryl, 8; and Terri, --gave more attention to the nimals than a lof a d u l t s ould.

But he says that for now, it is South Vietnam--not the North-that deserves increased U.S, aid.

Thieu repeated South Viet- men jurors, who have been sequestered since the trial began, deliberated seven hours Sunday and five hours Saturday. Federal marshals assigned to jury security said the jury had not indicated any deadlock. They pointed out that the jury has hundreds of documents to study. Kerner, 64, and his longtime associate. Theodore J. Isaacs, are charged with bribery, conspiracy, fraud and income tax evasion. Kerner also is charged with perjury. Kerner, governor of Illinois from 1961 to 1967, is the first judge of a U.S. Court of Appeals to be tried while serving on the bench. The government maintained in the seven-week trial, which began Jan. 3, that Kerner and Isaacs were offered racing stock at bargain prices in 1962 in exchange for giving certain ;roups favorable racing meet- ng dates. The government said that Corner and Isaacs each invested $15,000 and eventually letted $144,000 each from sale of the racing stock.

The previous synods were leld at two-year intervals, in 1967, 1969 and 1971. But during the 1971 synod many bishops complained that they had not had enough time for thorough study and research beforehand of the two momentous subjects then under discussion: priesthood and justice. The synod acts as a kind of senate, discussing and voting on recommendations to submil to the pontiff.
