Gamblers plane searchers hold out little hope HAWTHORNE, Nev. (UPI)Search crews held out little hope today for survivors among 35 persons on a missing DCS airliner, even though faint radio signals were picked up in an area where the craft disappeared. New snow has fallen m the Sierra Nevada every day since the twin-en^e plane vanished in predawn darkness Tuesday on a "gamblers special" return flight from Hawthorne to Southern California. Officials feared the plane would not be found until the snow melts months from now, but the search will continue "as long as there's any chance," said Lt Col. James Helm of the Nevada Civil Air Patrol. However, he added, "the longer the search goes, the more hopeless the chance of fmding survivors." The wealc radio signals were reported Friday by the pilot of a light plane flying west of Inyolcem, Calif., and by Navy- men at the nearby Naval Ordnance Test Station, China Lalie, Calif. . A spokesman at Hamilton Air Force Base., where the search j is being coordinated, said Air i Force and CAP ]rianes which jilew to investigate the radio I signals failed to pick them up. He said no link between the missing craft and the signals i bad been established. %m\fi ^whn ^n moy levy oil poHiftfon fines SANTA BARBARA. Calif.

WASHINGTON. (UPI) — For the first time in history hungry Americans are beinf given firea food stamps. Agriculture Secretary Clifford M. Hardin announced Friday stamps will be distributed on an experimental basis in two South Carolina counties to families living on less than $30 a month. Families receivmg the free stamps will be able to redeem them at nearby grocers for food they cannot now afford. Impoverished families have .been required until now to pay 150 cents per person per month —but not more than a total of S3 — for stamps that a family of four could redeem for $58 worth of food.
