(NEA)—American sportsmen will have an entirely new game bird Jto add to their bags if an experiment being carried on in Nevada is successful. The bird is the Himalayan snow partridge. Nineteen mature birds have been released in the Ruby Mountains of Elko County. Only a few Americans have seen the species and those viewed it in its native habitat, the Himalayan region of Tibet and India. Its size—mature birds range between six and eight pounds as contrasted to the chukar's pound and one-half—reputation as table fare and hunter-challenging habits will make it a most desirable game bird if it takes hold. Not much is known about the life history of the Himalayan snow. It probably will occupy only the highest and most remote areas and apparently feeds somewhat like the chukar, taking grass shoots, seeds and some insects. It is supposed to be a spring breeder. The Indo-Chinese border conflict was only one of the obstacles in the way of transplanting the new species from Hunza. They were taken over treacherous high mountain passes of the Hindu Kush to Gilgit, Pakistan. From there they were flown, by stages, to Nevada. They made the last lap of their journey in U. S. Air Force helicopters. Six of the 36 which originally left Hunza died en route.

Sam Etcheverry, the old pro who was signed two weeks ago, couldn't do the job and was released by the Forty Niners earlier Tuesday along with halfback Bob Gaiters, a former Giant.
