"It's possible her abductor drove the car into a reservoir or off a mountain logging road. "It's also possible that Georgia police will stop a Volkswagen tomorrow for a traffic violation, and we'll have the car," said. Although they are miles apart the three disappearances have one element in common. Vicki Hollar occasionally would pick up hitchhikers, and Rita Jolly sometimes hitchhiked. Sue Wickersham was walking home when she disappeared. Vicki Hollar's parents came out to Oregon from Illinois and stayed in Eugene Need Volunteers Northwest Natural Gas Co. has been granted a conditional use permit hy the Lincoln County Board of Commissioners which will enable the company to proceed with plans to construct a liquefied natural Gas (LNG) plant at Newport. This plant will vaporize LNG brought to the site by food'' important for high protein, low cholestorol and as a diet food. Marine Protein Corporation, New York, a public company, has developed a "Controlled Environment Silo System" TM to produce over 500 times as many pounds of "fish in the same surface area as a farmer can raise in a fish pond. A fish farmer raises pounds of fish per pond acre per year. Marine Protein can raise over 1 million pounds of fish per acre per year. It is one of the most important breakthroughs in' fish production since the ancient Chinese began pond farming "some 3,000 years ago. A -few years ago, a handful of scientists in Pennsylvania developed this method which could help curtail the calamitous cost of food for the American housewife. And the invention has become so significant that the world may never fear a fish shortage or pay the kind of prices we arc paying today. In the United States in 1972. fish imports totaled 81,200,000.000. We currently import 75 percent of the fish we eat. Marine Protein's Fish Silos may reduce our dependence upon foreign fish supplies and help strengthen the U.S. dollar. It's another example of America's world leadership in food production technology. The company's unique approach to intensive culture takes into account water quality and oxygen, as well as food and waste removal, all of which are continually monitored and controlled. ToHelp Elderly The Retired Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP) is seeking volunteers to help the elderly in their own localities fill out their income tax returns. Assistance is needed in both Albany and Lebanon. Those wishing to help may (gigs until police told them they call RSVP 928-4111 during the could do no more.

The company nas been approached by representatives of the Oregon State University Marine Science Center to use LNG to provide refrigeration for a cold storage warehouse and food packing plant on Yaquina Bay, which would be a supplemental benefit of the proposed LN'G import program. A survey of the Newport area has earlier disclosed a serious deficiency in cold storage facilities. The quantities of LNG vaporization being considered would make about 500 tons of refrigeration available on a year-round basis. This would supply a refrigeration plant equal in size to any now existing in the state. As a by-product, ice would be made available to commercial fishermen who operate out of Newport and other areas along the coast. Ken Hildebrand, program leader of the Marine Science Center, said that if the refrigeration equipment could be added into the Northwest Natural Gas terminal equipment, the resulting low refrigeration cost might make a processing and cold storage plant at Newport competitive with any similar plant in Oregon. 135,000 Boxes Pears Being Sent To i BOB ulff Html in day or 258-G327 evenings or weekends.

RSVP will be working with the Internal Revenue Service on the program officially known as VITA (Volunteer Income Tax Assistance). It will be an excellent opportunity for concerned individuals to assist taxpayers who have fairly simple filing requirements, according to Peg Hatfield, RSVP director. The key to the program is the training of volunteer assistants to help taxpayers in their own communities to complete their returns fully and accurately, without charge, Mrs. Hatfield said. A training date be set shortly after the first of year for volunteers from Lincoln, Linn and Benton counties. WtttiT, AM rASTEKM hAHLAAW rAKOMTH6TlBT-Kiril- f5CCFSMT WAS FIRST COURTESY CORNER 1515 S.
