Friday, Moy 18, 1973 Electronic Device May Help Track 'Bigfoot' CARRICK LE AVITT SAN FftANCWOO (UPI) - Bigfott, the legendary ape-man who reportedly has been spotted from time to time in the Pacific Northwest for more than a century, should watch out tor ifm flying airplanes this sumHtter.

Biscardi base camp, where a specialist in ESP and an expert tracker will be waiting, ready to move into action. The infrared machine really works, they say, much better than a somewhat similar device used by the military to ferret out enemies in jungles at night. Biscardi and Findley say their machine reads out the exact temperature of any animal it monitors and also indicates the general shape. Bigfoot walks upright, it is said, like a man. Biscardi has given \ip his sales job with a clothing manufacturer to devote himself to the hunt for Bigfoot. "It shouldn't take more than a couple of months," he said. "We've got everything going for us. Every angle covered." They have made a study and When the expedition begins on July 15 their task force of at 41 LOUIE'S LIQUORS S.

Already they have narrowed the search to three mountains, two in Washington and one in Northern California. "We can't be more specific," said Biscardi, "because 25,000 people will come if we publish the area. It'll be like a Bigfoot convention." The Bigfoot mystique began with Indian legends telling of hairy monsters roaming the North American Continent. ; A series of bizarre sightings from white men trickled in later, turning into a flood at times. A series of sightings was reported by miners camped around Mount St. Lawrence near Kelso, Wash,, in July, 1918. in 1924, another group of miners said they were attacked by giant ape-like creatures thundering down from Mount St. Helen, also in Washington. In 1M0, an American Indian family near Eraser River in British Columbia said a giant hairy ape stalked out of the woods and turned over massive barrel of salt fish in a shed. He left behind footprints 16 inches long and eight inches wide. More recently, road builder Jerry Crew told of sighting a huge creature in the Bluff Legal Question Q. After my first husband and t were divorced, I received title to our house and owned it when I married. My new husband helped with the mortgage payments, insurance and upkeep. Later, we sold the house and used the proceeds to build a new home which we own as joint tenants. Should we get a divorce, do I have any greater interest in the house man he does or does the law presume that I made a gift of half of the property to him? A. What the law presumes is that when two or more people take title to real estate as join* tenants they do so with the idea that each has an equal interest in the property regardless of who contributed what to the purchase price. Thus, when the property is sold, the joint tenant who contributed little or nothing ordinarily is entitled to an equal share of the proceeds, although that person could vol unteer to take less. — Illinois State Bar Assn Gub to Meet Knox County Home Workshop dub members will meet at H L.

Creek area of Northern California in 1958. Some say that was a hoax. But workers quit their jobs after huge tracks were found five days later around machinery at a nearby lumber camp. Ron Olson of Medford, Ore., who has a steel trap set for Bigfoot in the Siskiyou Mountain range, says there have been mote than 850 sightings of the creature since 1068. "Listen, we've been ridiculed already," said Biscardi. "But they ridiculed the Wright brothers, too."
