D C. Basolo, who has named his hybrid the Beefalo, said the 29-month old bull named Joe's Pride was bought by Alga Holding Ltd. of Canada. Joe's Pride, which weighed over 2,000 pounds, was delivered Saturday to Calgary, Ontario, by truck. Slayer Terms SACRAMENTO (AP) State prison officials say L Ewing Scott, convicted of murdering his wealthy socialite wife in 1955, has been granted parole from San Qucntin Prison. But the 78-year-old inmate has refused to agree to the conditions of parole and will not be released until he does, said Harold Bryant, a pre-release counselor at San Qucntin. "Unless he signs the conditions of parole, he won't be released," Bryant said Tuesday. 'He refused to sign them because he expressed the feeling that the Adult Authority has no right to impose conditions." Bryant said parole conditions jnake no statement about guilt and contain only prohibitions against illegal conduct, restric tions on travel and similar requirements. The parole is due to start Nov. 1. Scott was convicted Dec. 21, 1957, of murdering his 63-year-old wife Evelyn Thorsby Scott in 1955. Her body was never found. He was sentenced to life imprisonment after the prosecution contended that Scott, then a debonair, self-styled investment broker, killed her to gain control of her $300,000 estate. Scott told the court he left their plush $75,000 Bel Air home on May 16, 1955, to buy toothpaste and that she was gone when he returned. He said he never reported her missing because he thought she would return eventually. GMT tfESTFABIUi Davenport's finest DRUSSEL SPROUTS bell New crop, locals.

He said he quoted the $2.5 million price because he really didn't want to sell the bull. "I couldn't believe it when they called back and accepted," said Basolo in an interview. A Beefalo hybrid's bloodline Won't Accept Of Parole Throughout the trial, Scott maintained that his wife was alive and would come forward , to clear him. Her disappearance was disclosed by her brother Raymond on March 6, 1956, when he petitioned Los Angeles Superior Court to be made guardian of her estate. Her brother claimed Scott had misused his wife's money. On May 1, 1956, Scott was indicted on 13 counts of grand theft and forgery involving his wife's estate and released on $25,000 bail. Scott failed to appear for his arraignment and was declared a fugitive from justice. On Oct. . 16, 1956, he was indicted for his wife's murder. Scott was arrested April 16, 1957, as he tried to cross back into the United States from Canada at a border checkpoint near Detroit. Authorities said Scott had been living a leisurely existence in Canada for nine months under an assumed name and had even proposed marriage to a woman from Santa Monica. ' Scott lost at least nine attempts to have his sentence set aside. "He's' been fighting his case for years," Bryant said. "Of course,' he hasn't made much progress or he wouldn't be where he is today." Philip Guthrie, assistant director of the department of corrections, said Scott has caused no problems as a prisoner.

The advantages of a Beefalo are that it gains weight fast by eating only grass, and produces lean meat with a higher protein content, he said.

"He's been no problem as a prisoner," Guthrie said.

I For $2.5 half-blood Beefalo calf can weigh a marketable 1,000 pounds after 12 months on grass, compared to 22 months on costly grain for a normal beef calf. He said the Beefalo "will eventually revolutionize the industry." The 16 Beefalo bulls "online" to produce sperm are providing about 8,000 ampules a week. The Canadian government contract is for $10 an ampule, Basolo said. "We have 60,000 ampules on Boston Police Remain A lert In School Crisis BOSTON (AP) - Five full busloads of black pupils were quietly unloaded at South Boston High School today and police continued to keep heavy forces in the surrounding white neighborhood. Policemen lined bus routes and massed in front of the school, as they have done on most of the five days that have passed during implementation of a court-ordered busing program. . Police Commissioner Robert' deGrazia had said his forces, estimated at 800 in the South Boston section, would be slightly smaller today. But he promised to keep "a visible police presence." Pro-Ku Klux Klan graffiti began appearing today on buildings in South Boston after a Louisiana Klan leader promised to bring his followers to Boston to organize white opposition to integration. Attendance at South Boston High was low on Tuesday. Only 177 pupils 60 whites and 117 blacks went to class. The school is supposed to have an enrollment of 1,031 whites and 380 blacks.

More than 10 years and $1 million went into the development of the Beefalo, said Basolo. He once owned a Wyoming buffalo ranch, but moved his experiments to the family ranch at Tracy because he needed a warmer climate. Basolo, 52, went into the meat packing business in Burlingame after World War II. He first tasted buffalo in the middle 1950s. This led to the Wyoming .ranch where his herd of 2,600 Tuesday inched up to 73 per cent of normal, with 59.319 pupils attending classes. On Monday, 70 per cent showed up for school. Last week, angry white crowds stoned buses carrying black children to South Boston and there were some incidents of blacks throwing rocks at buses bringing white children into the Roxbury section. The incidents fell off sharply after the weekend and only three minor incidents were reported on Tuesday. Agriculture Sweepstakes Fair Honors Top sweepstakes honors in the agriculture department at the Santa Cruz County Fair went to Mary Webb of Santa Cruz, with Kevin Webb of Santa Cruz and Steve Luzovich of Aromas tying for second. Other agriculture winners from the central and north county were Mark Clifton, Jody Davey, Bill Foote, Melody Foote, Charlotte Kcttnich, Annette Mungai, Jaime Muzzio, Edward Silva, Ramon and Noreen Silva, Sandra Silva and John Szabo. FEDERALLY INSPECTED I USDA PRIME & BEEF EXCLUSIVELY Z & 475-9716 First Quality, Hickory FRESH American bison was the largest one in private hands. Basolo said he used to marvel at the way "old buffalo bulls all weak and battlescarred after the mating season would lie around on a rivcrbank eating grass and gaining 10 pounds a 'day." But buffalo are hard to man-age. They require massive fences and corrals. Basolo saw the solution as a cross-breed. He achieved the hybrid Beefalo, which can reproduce itself, about three years ago. The first Beefalo meat sale was last May in Stockton. During the three days, when prices were 40 per cent lower cut-for cut than normal beef prices, the shoppers became unruly ia their eagerness to buy, he said. Basolo said another sale is planned for this fall, possibly in Sacramento. . The meat placed on sale comes from animals culled from the herd, Basolo said. Larger but limited amounts could come on the market in about three years when breed-' erscull their herds. Some time after that. Beefalo should become generally available, he said, and it should sell 25 to 40 per cent below grainfed beef. This is because grass is cheap compared to feed grains, and there is only about 5 per cent wasted fat instead of 25 to 35 per cent on a beef animal. Also, he said, Beefalo is 18 to 20 per cent protein compared to 10 to 12 per cent for beef. "The taste is in the protein. Beefalo has no marbling. It's more tender and tastes better. . Besides, fat is a killer," Basolo said. Over about the next six months, normal beef cows impregnated with Beefalo sperm will have produced more than 500,000 calves, Basolo said. Soviet experimenters tried to do something similar, but the experimental herd was eaten during World War II, Basolo said. The Canadian govenrn-ment also tried unsuccessfully, he said.
