Kin., WriltHsdiiy, .Inly .1,1974 HlPO Extinct COLUMBUS, Ohio (UPl) - HlPO, grandson of the Pony Express, has gone the way of the dinosaur, dodo bird and nickel cigar. The U.S. Highway Postal Service, which once crisscrossed the nation with mail In 40-foot red, white and blue buses, rolled Into extinction on the gloomy Ohio Interstate system early Monday. The air age and Mr. Zip combined to kill the 33-year old HlPO, just as it had supplanted Its forerunners —the Railway Postal Service and the Pony Express. The last two buses left Cincinnati and Cleveland late Sunday night, had a brief rendezvous In Columbus and then completed the second leg of their final journeys in relative obscurity. They are being replaced by private air taxi services, which already tote the mail on a regional basis in most other sections of the country. The U.S. Postal Service says machines can sort and distribute the mail better than clerks who rode the HIPOs. R.E. Dleckbrader, who drove the first HlPO run in Ohio In 1952, rode into the end of an era from Cincinnati Sunday night.

(UPI) State Treasurer Tom O'Maliey may recommend that the state go to court to cancel a 1973 deal to purchase part of St. George Island, an aide said Monday. Joe Fuller, an assistant to O'Maliey, said the treasurer also may suggest that the state ask damages as a result of the $6.3 million transaction. But Gene Brown, attorney and part-owner of the l,46iB acres the state has agreed to buy. accused O'Maliey of "blowing a lot of smoke" but coming up with no concrete legal grounds why the state should not continue its piecemeal purchase of the land on thp Gulf of Mexico in North- iwest Florida.

Elmo Zumwalt said recently that the United States Navy has "lost control of the seas" and could be defeated In a confrontation with the Soviets. Depending on strategic considerations. Zumwalt said in a broadcast interview, U.S. naval commanders should consider keeping their forces out of areas of confrontation. Zumwalt also revealed that he was offered the job of veterans administrator and declined because "domestic politics" prevent the VA from providing Vietnam-era veterans the benefits they need. Zumwalt shook off repeated questions about strategic arms negotiations in Moscow, saying an explicit order from Secretary of Defense James R. Schleslnger prevents active duty officers from commenting on the SALT negotiations. Zumwalt retires Monday after a four-year stint as chief of naval operations. The admiral was Interviewed on NBC's Meet the Press. He blamed "Inadequate public support for an adequate defense budget" — Including what he said was a 47 per cent reduction In ships since 1%9, to the lowest level since 1939, and a 24 per cent reduction in alr- craft-for the Navy's diminished strength. Zumwalt said "all of us" must bear' the responsibility. "We have during my tenure arrived at that position where the United States Navy, the odds are. Is not able to perform its mission, which is the tougher mission—being able to control and use the seas—and where the odds are the Soviet navy can carry out Its mission more, the easier mission of cutting sea lines of communication," he said. Sen. Stuart Symington. D-Mo., a senior member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, declined to comment directly on Zumwalfs assessment of Navy needs, but said "Adm. Zumwalt Is a great salesman" and all the services are anxious to get all they can." Symington was interviewed on ABC-TV's Issues and Answers." Eyes Given Girl DALLAS (UPI) - Richard McCook and his daughter, Karen. 22. were a team taking pledges during the Democratic Party's fund-raising telethon last weekend. Karen, blind since January because of a retina disease and glaucoma, took the information off the telephone to relay to her father, who wrote It on pledge pads. But then, other workers at nearby telephones took two other calls which made different kind of pledges —eyes for Karen. "I just can't believe people are so good," Karen told viewers of the telethon. The cameras in the hectic, noisy Gold Room of the Fairmont Hotel telethon headquarters, roamed from the rows of telephone workers, to celebrities and to the tally boards keeping the totals of money generated. At about 3 p.m. the cameras focused on "the blind girl" helping the party cause. The camera returned to her periodically, focusing on her calm manner taking calls and relaying the facts to her father. Mrs. Cleon Arnett of Dallas made the first offer. Mrs. Helen Miller, also of Dallas, shortly after made the second. Mrs. Arnett said when she dies she will leave her eyes to Karen If it Is medically possible for a transplant to work. Mrs. Miller, who said she was living on Social Security payments, went a step further. She said she would give one eye to Karen Immediately if a way could be found to pay medical bills for a transplant. "Since she has the spunk to get involved and help straighten out our country. I guess I should have the spunk to help her," Mrs. Miller said. Mrs. Miller was partially disabled In a traffic mishap recently. Both women left their telephone numbers with McCook so he could call them after consulting with eye speclalsts about Karen's chances to regain her eyesight through a transplant.
