Policies on wiretap discussed WASHINGTON (API-In a shift of strategy, FBI officials say they're going for quality instead of quantity in their use of wiretaps to catch mobsters. Asst. FBI Director William Cleveland, in charge of the special investigations division, and Inspector A. A. Staffeld say the new approach partially explains the sizeable decrease in court-ordered federal wiretaps and bugs in 1973. A recent government report showed that last year's federal eavesdropping fell 37 per cent below the 1972 level, while taps and bugs employed by state and local authorities increased 13 per cent. Cleveland and Staffeld discussed wiretap policy in a joint interview. "The decrease is because of an increase of selectivity in connection with organized crime cases," Cleveland said. He and Staffeld said state and local officials may have increased the use of wiretaps because of numerous investigations of police corruption, often stemming from illegal gambling and narcotics operations.

By IRVING DESFOR APNewsfeatures If competition is what you need to keep shooting, here are several projects that provide motivation to keep the camera clicking: The 1974 Keep America Beautiful Photo Awards contest requires a series of photographs — from three to six — showing some community improvement or beautification project in its before, during and after phases. Entries can be entered in black-and-white or color categories. As examples of the types of projects which turned up in the 1973 winners' circle, pictures selected showed: transformation of a garbage dump into an attractive park; removal of debris from a stretch of river to make it a breeding place for fish; sprucing up a shaggy fairgrounds area and installing attractive litter barrels to keep it Utter free; and transforming a shabby vacant lot into a neighborly park. There are numerous projects of similar nature in communities throughout the nation which offer contest-worthy material for photo fans. You learn about them by being part of civic groups which discuss these matters and do something about them — neighborhood PTAs, church and social clubs, Boy Scouts and 4-H groups, etc. When a project is decided on, you must be on hand before the work starts to show why it was an eyesore, and then how it was transformed. For entry forms and more information, write: Keep America Beautiful, Inc., 99 Park Ave., New York, N.Y. 10016. Another community-minded photo contest which stresses people helping people can be a year-round effort by amateur photo fans. The current contest deadline was Feb. 1 but the project is an annual one and so worthy it should be recorded for its own value, contest or no contest. The heart of the project is to seek out and dramatize the individuals who serve their communities by helping other people. Among the activities which foster such service are: care for the aged, handicapped or retarded; correction, rehabilitation and helath care services; children's day care centers; tutoring, cultural enrichment and youth development programs; safety and disaster training; and programs for the blind, deaf and mute. When taking pictures of this nature, it's imperative to get names and addresses of persons shown and full information about the project. It may be necessary in the future to get a signature or model release from anyone recognizable to permit use of the picture for illustration, exhibiting, advertising or publication. Without a signed release, a photograph will be eliminated as a winner in this type of photo contest because of the sensitive nature of the subject matter.

For the youth of the country, there are three major contests in which photo skill in still and movie filming can be tested. First, there's the annual Scholastic-Kodak photography awards open to all students in grades 7 through 12 in public, private or parochial schools. Entries in two classifications, junior and senior, are usually judged first in regional exhibitions before the competition for national awards. Top honors are scholarship grants of $1,000 and $500. Photo-minded students must seek out the proper school official or a school camera club in order to get involved. Getting started is hard; keeping interested is easier. For information and rules, write: Scholastic Photography Awards, 50 W. 44St., New York, N.Y. 10036. Secondly, there's the annual 4-H photography project supervised by the cooperative extension service in participating counties and states. About 100,000 members are enrolled in this project which enables youngsters in the 9 to 19 age range to develop photographic skills to picture their schools, communities and 4-H activities. Photos are selected from 4-H county fair exhibits for inclusion in the state fair exhibit, collecting their blue ribbon awards along the way. This year, photographs will be chosen from the state fairs to make a national 4-H exhibit for the first time. It will make its debut at the 1974 4-H Congress in Chicago. All state winners receive all-expense-paid trips to the 4-H Congress and each of six national winners are awarded $1,000 college scholarships. Thirdly, the annual Kodak Teen-age Movie Awards contest is an opportunity for boys and girls — no more than 19 years of age — to participate in the newest youth photo fling... movie making. Any subject by any one — or a group — may be entered provided the entire production is the work of those submitting the films. The 8mm films are judged by age groups: Pre-teen (up through 11); Junior (12 through 15); and Senior (16 through 19). All 16 mm f Urns are judged in a separate fourth category. Top prize in each category is now $500 with other cash prizes for second, third and special mentions. In addition, a grand prize winner is selected who receives an all-expense-paid scholarship for a summer cinema program at the University of Southern California.

(AP) — When Gene Sarazen made his hole-in-one in the 1973 British Open the five iron shot was shown on television.

He also said a bigger thrill came in the 1935 Masters when he registered a double eagle.
