PLENTY OF AMMO — Showing .50 caliber machine gun ammunition which has neighborhood kids agog, is Steve Albright, 7, who lives near Tyrone, Okla., just across the Kansas border. Steve's dad, Wayne, Albright, and friend found about 40 rounds of live ammunition while going to check gas well. Speculation as to its source ranged from a guess that it fell from military aircraft to possibility soldier home on leave ditched it. Albright has been pulling the slugs, dumping the powder, detonating the primers and then reassembling the cartridges and handing them out to kids.

His Society Would Keep Those Wild Broncs Wild obviously, these animals fare much better than any on the still open range. By HAROLD 0. TAYLOR The Pittsburg Headlight & Sun written for The Associated Press BONNER SPRINGS, Kan. (AP) —Horseflesh on the open range, hat's fine. In corrals, well okay f necessary and humane. But in in cans, never! These are the sentiments of a comparatively unknown Kansan who in about two years has inoculated some 300 persons in 40 states, England, Canada and Aus- ralia with his idea. As a result, here has come into being the In- ernational Mustang Club with members over the wide territory. Obviously, the objective is preservation of wild mustangs and mrros. The Kansan is Ed Phillips of Bonner Springs, who is founder and president of the organization. The club, growing steadily, was created after Phillips found his mailbox stuffed with inquries after he wrote an article on Spanish mustangs for a national magazine in 1959. Doing an admitted about-face from the days he forked 'em to break 'em, the former bronco buster wants wild horses kept wild. "They ain't hurting nobody," Phillips explains in an appeal to halt the slaughter of the wiry animals that helped tame the West. For years they have been trapped slaughtered and made into dog and cat food. Unfortunately for the club's sta- tistical purposes, there has been no wild horse census since 1957, says Phillips, and the data compiled at that time was inconclusive with the estimate placed between 17,000 and 30,000. He says there are wild mustangs in at least 13 states, many descendants of animals that carried pony express riders among other nation- building roles. Most of these animals are not legally owned. Only a few are branded. Most of the horses are on federally-owned lands and Indian reservations. The Department of Interior has control over the animals and the bureau in turn permits the Bureau of Land Management to issue permits to run wild horses and burros. These permits are supposed to be issued only where there is deemed a surplus or if they are causing damage. Still, without adequate policing, Phillips believes trappers are taking horses without the farmality of obtaining permits. And, he say it is too easy for a surplus to be declared. A 1959 federal law prohibits running wild horses with mechanical vehicles but this applies only to federal lands. States have not acted. Between 1940 and 1950, about 100,000 are believed to have been taken in Nevada alone. The objective of the club is to have better laws protecting the mustangs, and to have many caught and placed in national parks along with buffalo and other animals of the Old West. The club is reaching proportions where a national convention is possible, Phillips believes. Phillips has a small ranch near Bonner Springs although he is employed in Kansas City, Kan. Obviously, there are some mustangs on the acres. But just as BAKERSFTELD, Calif. (AP)-C. '-,. Ewing, chief claims attorney •or the Santa Fe Railroad, said ruesday 37 claims resulting from a March 1, 1960, truck-train crash have been settled for "less than a million dollars." Ewing said the agreement was reached by Santa Fe attorneys and attorneys representing the 3glesby B r o th er s Petroleum Transportation Co.
