A-Mark President Gary Gordon said the coins will be sold to selected dealers and coin collectors over the next three to five years. The first coins will be sold in 60 to 90 days. The transaction was more than seven limes larger than the previous record sale and has been submitted to the Guinness Book of World Records,. Gordon said. During the next few months the 407,283 coins, most of them minted in the 1870s and 1880s, will be individually inspected. More than 350,000 are previously uncirculated, Gordon said.

Her time of 59.7 seconds over the S-shaped, 415- yard course compared to the world record she set last year of 58.5seconds. "I don't really think there is a secret. You just yet out there and run as hard as you can," said I lie mother of one and wife of an oil field worker. Sheila ran hurdles and relays on her high school and junior college track teams and said (rack is her favorite sport. But pancakes are not her favorite food. "My favorite food is probably Mexican food," she said, adding that she eats pancakes "every once in a while" but more often than she did a year ago when she said after the race. "I can take 'em or leave "em." Susan Hillier. 25-year-old wife of an antiquarian bookbinder, won the Olney race in 01 seconds. Both winners received a traditional kiss of peace at the finish line.

The Liberal race was followed by a parade. After the Olney race, the hundreds of spectators crowded into the village church for a traditional service conducted by the vicar, the llcv, Ronald Collins. According to legend, pancake racing began 500 years ago when a British housewife was fixing pancakes on Shrove Tuesday to use up animal fat before Lent. When she heard church bells calling townspeople to services, in her haste she ran to (he church with skillet and pancake in hand. It became a tradition in Olney and the Liberal women proposed an international competition in 1950. over license tag hassle MANITOU SPRINGS, Colo.

The Fiesta tradilion began more than three centuries ngo. One of the questions on the questionnaire elicited citizen views on whether two Fiestas one for tourisls nnd another of traditional religious significance -- should he held on separate dates.

Two witnesses at Tuesday's hearing noted that Kansas is a leading producer of small aircraft but air service to many of its cities is poor. "It is an apparent fact that Kansas literally gives wings to the world," said Forresl Robinson, the gnvprnnr'e liaison to the Ozark Regional Commission. "However, there is a bit of irony here, for our state does not yet have in the fullest dimension wings for herself. It is my conviction that certification of Air Midwest for which we petition will provide the missing link. C. Patrick Roberts, administration assistant to Rep. Keith Sebelius, R.-Kan., who repre- senled the congressional delegation, described it as a "paradox of enormous irony."

She said the dam would he built on gravel, and there is serious concern about whether the water might seep through. Gov. Richard Lamm, who has endorsed the project, .-said the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation had approved the much-studied proposal. He said the State Department of Natural Resources also recommended the project after consultations wilh at least a half dozen other state agencies. Project planning for [he Narrows Dam began in 194C. Lamm said the main reason the dam was needed was ''to prevent the loss of Colorado water." In 1970 alone, he said. 800,01(0 feet of water were lost from the South Platte.
