Ban comments due WEST GLACIER (AP) -- Officials of Glacier National Park are accepting written statements for or against a ban on the use of snowmobiles in the park. The U.S. Park Service has conducted hearings on the policy in Kalispell and Great Falls. The policy was adopted on the basis that noisy snowmobiles distur'j other winter-sports fans enjoying the frozen beauty of the huge chunk of wilderness, and frighten animals. One snowmobiler who testified in Great Falls said he found that animals stood peacefully while men rode by on snowmobiles, but that the animals bolted if the operators stopped their machines. ,He said he concluded that animals fear man, not machines. The snowmobile groups generally say they do not intend to drive cross-country, but would stay on established park roads. Glacier officials say they will accept statements on the matter until June 27. TERRY MACKEY AND HIS PONY, BEAUTY Pony aids youth Audrey Reese, Anaconda; his grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. Joe Reese, Evergreen, with whom he had lived the past 11 years, and Mrs. Josephine Marantette, Portland; and numerous aunts, uncles and cousins. He was preceded in death by his parents and an infant son. Funeral services will be at 11 a.m. Wednesday in the Weatherford Funeral Home with Rev. Merrill J. Gray officiating. Burial will follow in Conrad Memorial Cemetery. The family suggests memorials to the Evergreen Volunteer Fire Department. Terry Mackey, son of Theresa and Terry Mackey of Whitefish, is 12 years old and delivers newspapers for The Daily Inter Lake. On days when Terry doesn't feet like carrying the paper pack on his shoulders, he takes his 6-year-old pony, Beauty, along and she totes the pack. "The only problem is that Beauty is so fat, sometimes the papers fall off," he said. Beauty also has a knack for attracting the neighbor's friendly dog who sometimes makes it a threesome on Terry's route. And occasionally when they stop to make a delivery at one of the 57 houses on Terry's route, he said Beauty helps herself to the neighbors' lawns. But nobody really minds, he added. Terry won a skateboard in a Daily Inter Lake contest last week. He took the skateboard with him to school and was "drag racing" with it when he "hit a crack and crashed" with the end result being a broken arm. But this does not seem to have slowed him down too much. HR played baseball in Olney Wednesday night and took the skateboard back to school with home on Thursday. Elsie M.
