Bob, at left, is really correct, for the fish he has caught, a 'citek chub," Is a member'of the minnow family, even if It does grow & foot long. Minnows, whose scientific family name is Cyprlnlclac, have more than 1000 species of fresh water fishes, the king of which Is the carp, a European fish which has been imported to America, and which can grow up to three fed. in length. But a number of the mlnnow-typc fishes such as we show background, are really small. These are extremely useful ashait in catching larger g.iiuc fish, and because so many are used In tills way, it has become a custom to call almost any little fresh water fish a 'minnow" —which Is the way Ed, at right, looks at it. He would call the little klllillsil (lower right) a minnow, just because it is small, even if It Is not a true minnow. Minnows, true or false, are important llttlefishi for they are a link In the chain which leads to the larger fish useful to man lor lood. The big fish cat a great many of these smaller, ot "forage" fishes. * a a TOR YOU TO 00: Almost any little stream will have minnows, if you look carefully into its water. Make a net «md t.iuh sonic so ' you can look at them In a jar and find nut what kind ol fish they i really are. 6-8, (Bobby Wells of Springfield, Mo., wins today's combined prize of Compton's Illustrated Science Dictionary plus $10 cash, ior this question.

A Hood of donations ha\e been pouring into a special account to prevent the eviction Tuesday night of Miss Baker and her 11 adopted children. The star announced last week that she was hroke and heavily in debt. Her 12th century chateau at Milandes and its furnishings were to be sold at auction Tuesday unless she could satisfy her creditors. Movie star Brigitte Bardot made a radio-television appeal for Miss Baker, It was an unusual gesture for Miss Bardot. who had never met Miss Baker and detests the glare of television lights. The French television of! ice was deluged with calls asking where to semi the checks. Miss Baker says she needs $400.000 tu get the chateau at Milandes into the black for good. She has adopted children of various races to conduct a living demonstration of racial understanding. The children—all but one of them boys—are between 4 and 12 years old. They came from places as distant as Japan. Africa. South America and Finland. Several years ago Miss Baker decided she would try to develop Milandes as a tourist attraction thai would provide her children with a steady income.

The code, developed after the U.S. Surgeon General's report linking cigarette smoking with lung cancer, establishes uniform standards for cigarette advertising. Meyner sid he would have authority to review all advertis- r ing and impose fines of up to: $100.000 for violations.

(API- President Johnson scoffed today at those who call the federal government "a major menace to Individual liberty." At the same time he appealed to college graduates of 1064 not to "feel alien to this world they are preparing to enter." By some definitions, Johnson's message appeared to be aimed, on'the one hand, at those who share the political philosophy of Sen. Barry Goldwater, R-Arlz., and, on the other, at the college- educated segment of "the beat generation." In his address, prepared for commencement exercises at Swarthmore College, Johnson said: "Let us not call forth phantom fears about what the future holds." Continuing, he said, "One of those fears is that the federal government has become a major menace to individual liberty." "This," he asserted, "Is nol so." The chief executive went on to ask a series of rhetorical questions, all of them obviously Intended to be answered In the negative: "Does government subvert our freedom through the social security system? "Does government undermine our freedom by bringing electricity to the Farm—by control- ing floods—or by ending bank failures? "Is freedom lessened by efforts to abate pollution In our streams -or by efforts to strengthen competition in the free market? "Is freedom lessened by ef- banning the sale of harmful drugs — by providing school lunches for our children — by preserving our wilderness areas —or by improving the safety of our airways?" Johnson saved for last civil rights, a subject he has mentioned in every address he has made this year. "Is freedom betrayed when in 1964 we redeem in full the pledge made a century ago by the Emancipation Proclamation?" The President said that "far from crushing the Individual, government at its best liberates him from the enslaving forces of his environment." Alluding again to the civil rights Issue, he said, "This gov r crnment Is fighting to free 20 million Americans whose rights and whose hopes have been damned because they were born with dark skin." He went on to couple the civil rights Issue with his antipovcrty program, saying, "We are determined to wage unconditional war against the poverty thai keeps one-fifth of our people in economic bondage." Catholics in Viet Nam Demonstrate SAIGON. South Viet Nam (AP) — Thousands of Vietnamese Roman Catholics demonstrated for three hours in downtown Saigon Sunday, threatening tenccd to life imprisonment.

Diem, his family and many of his leading officials were Roman Catholics and the church had i a favored position under his i regime. The demonstration brought out an estimated 40,000 persons on the morning after the sentencing of a Catholic army officer whose troops fired on Buddhist demonstrators in Hue last year. Eight persons died in the clash, which set off the Buddhist campaign | against Diem. i Maj. Dang Sy, 37, was gen- of the cathedral," said a demonstrator. "We object to having it renamed after a politician," Some Vietnamese Catholics blame the Kennedy administration for Diem's overthrow. '. A pamphlet distributed at the rally charged that Lodge "exploited the so-called repression of Buddhists last year to ovef- throw the old regime. Now he is fomenting religious discrimination to create a new regime subservient to his own personal aims. Some banners said: Cabot Lodge." •Go honii CABL Endorses Research Center try is not diversified and (.hfe state has not made full use of its natural assets. ;• The report said the institute is expected to become fully self.- supporting after the Initial five years, with contract funds for research undertaken on behalf of government and industry. In this manner, the institute would provide its own means of financing after the state invest, ment of $10 million. The study said selection of the proper site for the institute's location "Is of capital importance to its success." BATON ROUGE (AP) - The I Council for a Better Louisiana ihas endorsed establishment of a science-economics research institute, which has been introduced into the House by administration leaders. The proposal would require a two-thirds majority vote in the (legislature as a constitutional i measure. It would be submitted to the people at the polls next November. CABL's report said, "The im! perative need ior long range, as well as short range solutions to Louisiana's economic problems, requires that government, industry and education marshal I I their efforts together to advance i i the state." Among benefits emphasized in the report are \ —Better uses of natural resources through applications of science and industry. —Industry and government is i (offered a powerful capability ior \ ! the study and solution of sci- i ! ence-economic problems. ! —Aid in attracting new industry. —Upgrading of higher educa- \ tion in the sta'c. , --Development and improve- ! me/Us of products, often creating new manufacturing jobs. —Development of new, science-orientated industry around the institute.
