Rain And Snow Hit Southwest By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Rain, with snow at higher elevations, moved across the Southwest from California to Texas today but most of the na lion enjoyed fair skies. Heavy rain or snow hit some southern sections of Arizona and New Mexico. Travel advisories were issued for the mountains of Texas west of the Pccos River. Warm rain falling over snow- packed areas threatened heavy runoffs in water courses and low sections of some mountain areas of the Southwest. Other exceptions to the generally pleasant weather picture were snow flurries from the northern Plains to the northern Great Lakes, and snow scattered across the central and southern Appalachians. Temperatures before da%yn ranged from --1 at Laramie, Wyo to 67 at Long Beach, Calif.

CAP) -- A 5 13,000-pound wounded bird has J nested in a muddy soybean POINT REYES. Calif. (AP) -- Prodded by high beef prices, cattle rustling -- that classic scourge of the Old West -- is experiencing a modern day resurgence, authorities say. Here in rural Marin County north of San Francisco, where Joaquin Murietta and "Three- fingered Jack" plundered Spanish ranches 'some 150 years ago, rustlers reportedly stole up to 60 beef and dairy cattle in the last six months of 1972. Nine thefts have been reported so far this year. "Some of the thefts are ap parently part of a commercial operation and others are just to put meat on the table," said Marin Sheriff's Lt. William Johansen. "In either case meat prices seem to be the basic root of it," Johansen said. Rancher Boyd Steward put up a $1,000 reward after rustlers slaughtered two 1,600 pound Black Angus in. his pas ture. "They butchered them right there and took them away in halves." Ste\yard said. Besides ending up in the rus tier's own freezer, some stolen cattle apparently go lo whole sale dealers who in turn sell to bulk meat retailers for market many controls." Thus far there have been no rrests in Marin County but ast August a man was sen- enccd to a l-lo 15-year term or cattle rustling in Alameda ounty, about 50 miles soulh- ast of here. In that county's first rustling rial in 12 years, Robert L. jweeden, 30, of San Leandro, vas convicted of stealing a 200- pound feeder calf from an area ·ancher. Marin cattle owners say their ranches are particularly vulnerable because many are close to heavily traveled roads. "You couldn't get within a lundred yards of the cattle jack on the hills," said Steward, adding that cattle more used to human contact "are so 5entle you could walk right up :o them and hit them with a .1 a miner." Another problem, said Johan field outside Memphis. The . Mississippi , National Guard CH34 Chuclaw cargo helicopter , was flying at 2,050 feet Sunday 'when a warning light indicated problems. It had dropped to about five feet above the ground and was circling the soybean field when the engine failed. It now sits with its landing gear mired in a foot of mud, waiting for the Mississippi Guard to pull it free and ferry it back to Tupelo.

Johansen believes a uniform jranding system might help curtail rustling. "We had three suspects caught with a stolen, butcherec animal." he said. "But we wouldn't prove anything, be cause we couldn't identify it." Stuck In Chimney DUBLIN, Calif. (AP) -- Vhen a 220-pound man tried to slip'down the chimney of a plz- ia. parlor Santa Claus style, it ook three fireman to pry him oose and haul him lo the roof.
