'With present weaponr,, there no longer is any advantage to winning a war. Everyone loses with ttw victor only losing a little less than the vanquished.

Arthur Conccllo, general manager of the circus, said he was told the boy ducked- under the r;uard rope lo pick up some peanuts he had dropped. Apparently the elephant became excited "like a dog when someone takes a bone away from it," he speculated.

In these tribes, he says,- the highly pri7-erl things of life are ceremonial titles or names. They carry the right lo perform certain dances, to sing certain songs, to erect totem poles and to give feast 1 ;. These titles used to becontrolled by a noble cnsl and were handed down in families. Now, however, the white man's civilization nnd diseases has reduced the tribes to a fraction of their forriier number.?. Some of the old titles'have.been inherited by commoners who used to share in them only as poor relations.

Shucks, folks, there's nothing to thLs Ihlng called rattlesnakes, honest. Because I did a fat total ot nothing yesterday when I came here for the once a year rattler roundup. Period. I sat In a car oil the town's main street. I sipped soda pop. And I stuffed myself on potato chips and hams-on-rye. It was my eyes, I guess, which got the best workout.

The weather was bad, for the nmters, but lots of snakes, while l<r>t particularly liking tylll-cotoicd skies, got a ycnr's lease on the canyons they call home. Snakes like warm weather loaded with sunshine when they leave Ihclr hibernating quarters this linn every year. And, since it wnsn' lhat way yesterday", they stayed a home and rattled their rattlers In the crying smallfi;'. They wcren' bothered by the snakestlck-carrylng hunters.
