Seem that people call the law enforcment agencies after each of these rattles with some strange comments. For instances: "I just had an earthquake at my house, did x anyone else have one?"or ."We just felt an earthquake, can you tell me if there will be another one?" or the odd caller who felt they had to blame somebody, said, "There was an earthquake, what are you going to do about it?"... Just a sample of what the officers at the complaint desks get after a quake and the poor guys have to answer with a straight face even though they might be shaking with laughter.

Of course, the Dillinders do not plan to cook the big mushies because they are most likely poison, but they will have to cut them down soon or they will take .over the entire backyard.'Who knows, next they might invade the whole neighborhood and before you know it take over the entire town.

Since September 1972 Hodgson has been banking the genes of exotic and endangered species in the belief that scientists someday will learn to generate living cells and ultimately animals from frozen genes. the 37-year-old Hodgson said Monday that the bank has collected genetic samples from scarce species like leopards and ih« C^l^mia Condor, plus about 600 species of birds, reptiles and animals found only on the Galapagos Islands. ' H e said the Soviet Academy of Sciences has agreed to preserve for him a sample of a woolly m a m m o t h , an extinct ancestor of elephants, the next time one is found frozen in the Siberian tundra. "IMAGINEa brand new m a m m o t h ! " Hodgson said.' He said most specimens are gathered through donations and expeditions and from animals which die in captivity. They are super frozen in liquid . nitrogen and ground up. The resulting crystals containing genetic coding are then stored in tiny plastic vials, still super frozen. With an unpaid staff of 15 part-time veterinarians, six medical doctors, a few nurses and two dozen occasional volunteers, Hodgson maintains three banks to protect against loss of all samples if a power failure allowed thawing in one location. The banks are located at the University of California Medical Center here, the University of California genetics department in San Diego and the genetics department at the University of Washington, in Seattle. The Animal Bank legally owns 40 per cent of each specimen, the National Institute of Health in Bethesda, Md. 40 per cent and the donor 20 per cent, he said. SCIENTISTS may request part of a sample for research. If it is approved they may be giver, a few crystals of the genetic material, Hodgson said. "Conservationists ... wring their hands when an animal is endangered and it gets down to the wire for the species," he said. "But it would be nice if people got interested early." , "Knoiring hinc light Van H'ilson is uiih a liiick, maybe tee ought to look into this Seal's place."
