The Defense Department said about 1,300 SAMs have been fired at American planes since Ang. 17 with 26 planes knocked down—a two per cent kill rate. The Pentagon added that a total of 4,800 SAMs have been launched against the raiding US. planes and that so far, 102 planes have been lost.

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) Birth control pills may be the best solution to the problem of eliminating rats, researchers at Ohio State University say. A project undertaken in cooperation with the new State Department of Urban Affairs involves feeding a high-powered version of "the pill" to the disease-carrying rats in an effort to curb the rat population.

"! realize there are weightier problems for you to consider, but alter two weeks my curiosity is getting the better of me. I come through the park (Walker Park) quite often going to work. Can you please tell me why there is a barbed wire fence in the middle of the park, running about half way across? It seems to accomplish no purpose, as it's low enough to climb, high enough to get under and doesn't fence to get anything." — M.E.W., Armorel. About the time the Northeast Arkansas District Fair got underway the fence was put up to keep motor scooters, bicycles and automobiles from driving across the park and through * stand of newly - planted trees. Joe McHaney, Fair treasurer, says the fence will be left up until the trees get a little bigger. And while on the subject of Walker Park, some persons might have been wondering why the jet trainer on display there now rests on the ground instead of being elevated as it was originally installed. Ted Johnston, president of the Jaycees, said the plane was lowered for the benefit of Ely. theville's little people. Th craft was purchased for smaller children to play on, he said, and having it on the ground not only makes'it safer for them but also "it will stabilize the wings." (Which means it will be more difficult — the JC's hope — for the bigger kiddies to jump up and down on the wings and tear" them to pieces as. some already have attempted.)

PEACE (Continued from fuge One) troops it reportedly has on the island and threatened to land its own forces .unless they were withdrawn. The threat, backed up by Turkey's superior strategic position and greater military might, triggered troop movements in both countries and the possibility of imminent fighting. Turkey has demanded, besides removal of .any Greek troops in excess, of treaty provisions, the return of arms seized from Turkish Cypiiots after the Nov. 15 fighting and payment of compensation for those killed and for property damaged.
