C-fS """ .tufy 7, 1»76 The Arizona Republic Sailors* dance draws hundreds oi girls t.'nilod Press International NEW YORK — Girls shnwrrl up by (tip hundred!; Tuesday in response to a Insl-minute appeal for 2,500 dance partners fnr the crews of the ships of Ihe International Naval Review and Operation Sail. But still Ihere were more than two men for every woman. "The sailors didn't mind a bit, really," said Marilyn Shapiro of Ihe South Street Seaport Museum in Manhattan. The museum issued the appeal over local radio stations less than four hours before the afternoon dance to top off a luncheon it gave for the crews. ''There definitely were enough girls to go around," Miss Shapiro said. "The crews were friendly. They shared." She estimated 1,000 girls showed up — several of them wearing bikinis but most in skirts or blue jeans. "The crews loved it," she said. Thirty interpreters were on hand bul the cadets didn't seem to need them. Members of a Haitian crew from one of the smaller ships in operation sail made a big hit. The Haitian men were stripped to the waist and wore hula skirts. So was a museum staff member, who did a belly dance. Mostly, the crews danced to rock music, hut some rumbas and other Latin music were provided. "The street was a sea of dancers," Miss Shapiro said. "They could hardly move." Miss Shapiro said the all-girl 42-member crew of the Winston Churchill — their male officers having given up a plan to keep them aboard ship throughout their New York visil — joined in Ihe fun.

Twenty-six horses were discovered dead and 16 others were found ill at the Orr Springs waterhole on the western slope of the Cedar mountains. "The cause has not been determined," said Dugway Proving Ground spokesman Steve Horran. "Dugway has not conducted open air tests with toxic agents or noxious materials since 1969." A plane on a routine security check spotted the dead horses Sunday night. A veterinarian and Army experts were sent immediately to the scene. They were joined Monday by consultants from the Bureau of Land Management and Utah Department of Agriculture. A herd of 90 to 100 wild horses was found near the spring and fresh water is being hauled to the animals pending an analysis of the spring, which is being contaminated by the carcasses of the dead horses. State and federal experts are attempting to determine the cause of death, said Horran. He said the only Dugway activity recently near t h e springs involved development of water sources for the horses. About 250 horses run wild on the Dugway range and are jointly managed by the Army and BLM. The other herds are healthy, Horran said. Wild baboons live to the age of 20 BROOKFIELD, 111, (AP) — Baboons in the wild attain a maximum age of about 20. Although the females are sexually mature and capable of bearing offspring at about 4 years of age, the males are not adult in appearance or in behavior until twice that age.
