5D July 13, 1975 SuaUy C**et - - Ct*r*im A*s« Vir Virginia ---- J The new bear law in West Virginia ewes and lambs and one calf V» r\ t rtimo nr»rt t\ttf\nl in M 1 A *«4 .· A ,«. u t TM .,.·-* . ; !**.__ A \jul Thus Far that became effective last year is working pretty well, according to reports from conservation officers in the six principal bear counties. However, efforts to trap sheep-killing bears have been unsuccessful. So far this year, the first full year of the law. there have been three sheep-killing bears killed and several unsuccessful chases, but no bears have been trapped or tranquilized. The three chases that resulted in bears being killed took place in Greenbrier. Monroe and Pendleton Counties. Several bears may have been saved by the provision of the law that pays farmers for proven damages. In the past, some of these bears would have been killed, no doubt. In Randolph County, for example, officers have investigated 12 damage complaints and damages were paid in 10 instances. They involved the killing of several * *^** i **"* ·* ^^^kjpl| 'v^TT; "Farmers seem willing to cooperate with us," said Randolph County conservation officer Bill Armstrong. "As long as they're being paid, they're not really that interested in killing the bear." "I think it (the law) will save some bears." commented Tucker County officer Forrest Blume. There has been only one chase thus far in Tucker, Blume added, and it was unsuccessful. Pocahontas County officer Larry Guthrie said he has recieved two reports of bear damage and that in one instance an attempt was made to trap the bear, but no chases have been held. * * * Barely Eludes Snare Greenbrier County officer George Clarkson said the bear killed there was killed following several days of unsuccessful trapping efforts, and the same was true in Pendleton County, according to officer Steve Raines. The latter bear was credited * % WATERS By Skip Johnsoi with killing 11 sheep, Haines said. The closest the DNR has come to trapping one of the sheep-killing bears was in Monroe County. Monroe officer Gerry Crosier said the bear, which killed three ewes and a lamb on two farms, hit the snare once but the snare wasn't large enough to hold him. Crosier said sheep-killing bears fall into two categories: old pros who kill sporadically at different places, and night-after- night visitors to the same farm. The latter bears present easier targets for trapping, and such was the case in Monroe County. State trapper Clyde Campbell said the DNR trappers have altered the size of the snare loops in attempts to trap sheep-killing bears. "The problem is getting the bear to return to the set," Campbell added. "If there is a lot of food available, he may not return for a week or longer." The decision on whether to attempt to trap a bear, and how long to continue the trapping efforts, is up to the conservation officer. In some cases, this puts a considerable amount of pressure on the officer Evonne Goolagong All Grown Up Now because the sheep owner wants the bear removed, and killing him is usually easier and qukker than trapping. » » » Dart Gun Not Tried The DNR did not attempt to tranquilize and remove any of the bears that were chased and killed, and there appears to be a difference of opinion as to whether there is any point in trying this. Some DNR personnel are of the opinion that a treed bear would, when shot with a dart gun, be injured or killed in falling from the tree. He might also be killed by the dogs, or he might be killed by an overdose of the tranquilizer drug. However, a bear killed in a fall from a tree, killed by dogs or killed by an overdose of tranquilizer isn't any more dead than one shot with a 30.06 rifle. It would seem the tranquilizer gun is worth trying on bears that are chased and treed, after trapping efforts have failed. "It seems a shame to pay a damage claim and lose the bear too," said one C'ificer. Incredibly, only two or three people in the DNR are licensed to use a tranquilizer guc, which iurtner compounds the problem of saving tears thai have been chased and treed. Smofcey, Wife Moving Speaking of bears, the U.S. Forest Service reported that preparations are under way to move the retired Smokey Bear and his mate Goldie to a ranch in New Mexico. · Smokey, the symbol of fire prevention, is still living in the .N'ational Zoo in Washington, D.C., awaiting transfer to his new home. Travel cages have been placed in Smokey's and Goldie's den so they can become accustomed to them before the trip. The director of the National Zoo has assigned a veterinarian to accompany the. bears. Bids are being sought on the construction of the retiring couple's new home, the Forest Service said. "We want to be sure people understand that we in the Forest Service have a special place in our hearts for Smokey," said associate chief Rexford Resler. "As the original live bear in the program, he has won a place in the history of the Forest Service."

NEW YORK (AP) - Evonne Goola- gong, the graceful, honeyskinned teenager who came out of the Australian outback to win Wimbledon at the age of 19, is all grown up now. Miss Goolagong is now Mrs. Cawley, 23, the new bride of British businessman Roger Cawley. It makes a difference. "It's like anyone who gets married," she said, looking relaxed and trim in a beige pants suit, gold earrings and a bright smile. "You want to go off on your own and sort things out for yourself. Roger doesn't want to manage me. He just wants to be a husband. "If I need help, fine. It's nice to know he's there." The Goolagong story is well know among tennis fans. Evonne, the third of eight children of a New South Wales sheepshearer, displayed phenominal talent as a youngster. Vic Edwards, one of Australia's top tennis teachers, took over her career and much more, eventually guiding her to her upset victory over childhood idol Margaret Court in the finals at Wimbldeon in 1971. She has been among the world's top four players ever since but hasn't reached the heights of Billie Jean King or Chris Evert, primarily because she lacks a killer instinct. "I wish I could be as aggressive as Billie Jean, but I can't. I'm just not made that way," she said at a recent luncheon here to promote a $75,000 women's tennis tournament, sponsored by Medi-Quik, beginning Aug. ,17th at nearby Westchester - -Country Club. "Billie Jean is a real professional in every way. She never gives up." Miss Goolagong became Mrs. Cawley just prior to this year's Wimbledon tournament. She spent her honeymoon playing tennis and ended it with a lopsided 6-0,6-1 loss to Ms. King in the finals. "It was just one of those days," she said with a shrug between mouthfuls of strawberries and cream. "I wasn't playing that well but Billie Jean didn't help. I just couldn't get in the groove." Her husband watched the match and offered moral supprt "I usually try and concentrate on the game but it was a new experience with Roger there," she said. "On the changeover after I lost the first set 6-0,1 glanced up in the stands. I don't usually do that. He was sitting there with this great big grin on his face and I just had to laugh. "Then I went out and won one game in the second set," she added with a smile. Mrs. Cawley shrugs off defeat just as she minimizes victory. There are more important things-like the direction her career is taking these days. Although she is reluctant to talk about it, she has been pulling away from Edwards and making more of her own decisions these days. "Mr. Edwards at first didn't approve of the marriage," she said. "It didn't matter if it was Roger or anyone else. I had 14 happy and successful years with Mr. Edwards. No one else could have done what he's done for me, but...I feel I'm married and, well, it's a new situation." She plans to play tennis under her maiden name-"I like Goolagong, it sounds so much better with Evonne,"-but will be Mrs. Cawley off the court. She has no plans to turn in her tennis racket for a dish towel. "Roger's leaving it up to me. I can stop tomorrow. As long as I'm happy it's fine with him. "And we're both very happy."
