Not until only nboiH 20 wild animals remained in the United States and 250 in Canada wns lepil action taken to save Ihe species. In the winter o[ 1J93-94, poachers nearly destroyed our last wild herd, which had retreated to the more inaccessible parls ot the Yellowstone National Park. In May ISM. Congress enacted R law makinp bultalo hunting in the Yellowstone National Park illegal. This was the first real attempt by the United States to save the species. Eisht years later money was appropriated to buy 21 butfalo from private herds to build up the Yellowstone herd. With adequate protection this herd has steadily increased until it numbers more than $00 animals today. Fortunately, the buffalo will biT«3 in captivity, The National Bison Society (organized by a group ot conservationists interested in sav- ins the buffalo) and the New York Zoological Society now be- pin advocating other Federal herds. Because ot the persistent efforts ot these groups and many private ciir/.ens, four nation- si refuges for buffalo weve eventually created. On these areas you can see the great animals livinc as nearly like their ancestors as modern conditions permit.

' HAZLETON; Pa., (UPI)--Who will be the first miner to iise the rescue capsule and emerge from his underground tomb? Most of the people in and around | this small mining comm u n i t y believe it will be Henry (Hank) Throne -- including Mrs. David Fellin, wife ot the other miner trapped with Throne. Feliit: is co-owner of the mine, "Hank will be the first to come out," she said without hesitation. "That is, unless David 'gels a specific order otherwise, perhaps by the doctor. But as they are now, I think Dave would insist upon Hank coming out first." Mrs, Fellin sits on a. chair in a spot made for her about 300 vnrds from the face of llie mine. I She'clutches a six-inch statuette of the Virgin Mary.' In it Is water from the Shrine of Our Lady of Lourdes. She was asked what she thought about Throne coming up : first. · . ' . "Whatever he CFellirO wants-I am satisfied," she said. Fellin's older brother, Joe, a retired miner, said, "Deti.iilely Davey would come out last. I know him, And probably he would lo sLay there and help get the other guy (Boya) out," George Walker, the stationary j engineer who seldom is away from his post in the engine ; room which operates the hopper cars, also said .Throne probably would be sent up first. "Dave has. been the Jeader, the 'take charge' guy down there and ·he'll send Hank up first.'' William Wittig of nearby Nuremberg, said Fellin "would b* the last one" to come up. "I worked around Davey for 30 years--ons enough to know him--and I know he would be the last." Al Kashner of Shamokin said Fellin would think of. Throne first. lalo now on the Fort Niobrara Refuge in northern Nebraska originated from a small group given the refuge by a Nebraskan, j. W. Gilbert, in 1913. Local cit- ijiens raised the money to fence the pasture. The small herd ot about 20 buffalo on the Sullys Hill Refuse in northwestern North Dakota originated from six animals given the refuge In 1918 by the city ot Portland, Ore. Buffalo nre protected on all National Parks where they occur. Beside* the large herd on Yellowstone National Park, about 20 are on the Grand Teton, 9 on the Flatt, 370 on Wind Cave, and 24 r-n the Colorado National Monument. The National Wildlife Refuges and National Parks are can-vine as large herds as their present wafr supplies and grazing ranges permit. Butfalo also are found today in numerous privale and State herds. One .of. the largest herds --numbering about 1,300 animals --in the United Stales is on Ihe Glister Slate Park in South Dakota. EARLY history on the conservation of the, buffalo In Canada nearly parallels that in the United States. The 250 wild buffalo left in CajiadH were placed under -Ihe protection ol the Mounted Police in 1S93. By .1922, with rigid protection, the herd had increased (o T.,500 animals. Need for additional range led lo ihe establishment ot the U-million- aci'c Wood B u f f a l o N a t i o n a l Park near Great Slave Lake in 1322. A herd o[ 14.000 to 1C.OOO new t h e immense area, of F- r * uajiftz boreal forest, muskeg, and grassy plains. Surveys of the b u f f a l o herds in the United Siales and Canada in recent years show a conti- neni.-il population of 20,000 lo 22,000 animals. While Ihis is a small number when compared with me greal herds lhat once ranged Ihe North American Continent, it is large enough to assure the well-being of the Ampr- ican buffalo in the foreseeable future, This concludes ;he series on the buffalo.

A top Item on their agenda, sources here said, was almost | certain to be Khrushchev's surprise attack proposal. The United Stales and Soviet Union had both indicated interest in the plan. But before Rusk, j Home and Gromyko can deter- j mine whether the idea is ripe j for serious negotiation, sources here said, it "must be thoroughly threshed out by NATO members. ! Talks already arc underway \ nnd attempts are being made to draft a united position before the ministers begin conferring at .the Sept. 18 opening of the General Assembly, sources said.
