Stephens County Sheriff Chase Booth says it doesn't exist. "We've been getting phone calls from excited people the last few days," Booth says. "But you pin them down and find out they didn't exactly see this thing. I'm convinced it does not exist, and never has." Nevertheless, the sheriff said, a few folks have taken rifles in hand and driven through brush country around Caddo looking for the critter. The latest flurry of supposed sightings of the whats-it began last weekend. Charley Gant, a rancher in he area, said he saw it Saturday and Sunday night, and un- dent; C. P.

The president of the Abilene Zoological Society volunteered Tuesday to send an expedition nto the area, but nothing has 3een firmed up. The tale, true or not, gives folks something to talk about these long hot days. Like the Democrats and Repubb'cans, you find two camps of thought, one observer said: "Them that believe and them that don't." You can get arguments from either side on the critter's existence. Britain Plans Reduction In Aden Force LONDON (AP)—Britain is withdrawing some of the 2,000 troops it sent to Aden last May to stamp out tribal uprisings threatening the Federation of South Arabia. The Defense Ministry an- .oaded a pistol at it without luck. "If Charlie Gant says he saw it, you can count on it," a neighbor declared. A n o t her supposed incident with the critter involved a worn- and her young son walking near a pond. The boy, and then the mother, saw the critter. It turned around, growled and began throwing rocks before flee- screamed back through the atmosphere to a landing in the Atlantic Ocean after a 25-minute flight. The Air Force reported search aircraft spotted the vehicle floating in the water 62 miles short of its intended target, trouble with the second stage of the Thor-Delta booster.

Britain began bolstering its Aden garrison May 1 when the South Arabian government asked for help against the tribesmen, charging that they I were being aided by the Yemen as a republican regime and the Uniti ed Arab Republic. The story bnngs to mind an other tale which drew comments from folk's at Haskell, some 70 miles distant. They've got their own varmint—the Haskell rascal. According to some believers at Haskell, the rascal is known to make 60 mile cycles in its meanderings. Haskell folks say that puts it within the territory of the Caddo critter. How do the two apparitions, animals or whatever compare? "If the critter .was an even four foot taller," says Haskell County Sheriff Garrett, "it just could be our varmint walking on his hind legs."
