(tlPi)— Bouncing radio beams afra DaseieBS nimnni nainpemi the «*fth for a boy desperately pleading for help over citizens band radio since Tuesday. Search coordinator Richard Dametuw said there are no plans to curtail todays search for the boy, believed to be trapped (alongside his father in an overturned truck. Though the boy in three days has never been able to identify himself beyond saying his first name Is Larry, Damerow and other authorities agreed the search must continue on the assumption no hoax is involved State Police reported 200 volunteers on motorcycles, horses and ifour<wne«l drive vehicles ctxnbed mountains and plains and the Civil Air Patrol said six planes were in the air. The number of citizens band buffs on the airways attempting to track the child was limitless. Damerow said there Would be a meeting with as many people in authority as possible to try to filter the many stories we have" and coordinate efforts more effectively. The main focus of the search is in the area of the Sandia and Manzano Mountains in central New Mexico. However, according to state police Sgt. A. B. Whitehouse, "we're searching Alamogordo, Las Cruces and all over the state because we aren't really sure he's in the Sandias or Mannncfl. "It's my understanding.that a skip of a radio signal is possible several hundred mites. We're realty iti no better shape then we were when we heard toe boy's predicament Tuesday evening," he said. "The bouncing of radio transmitting waves oil the rolling hills, canyons and mountain tops in this area is making the search impossible." The state police man said officers aire "having a heck of a time checking down all these rumors coming from California to Ontario, Canada, concerning the boy and his father." He said all rumors had been "proved false to date." Dollar Is Gaining Value On European Exchanges Genial Greeting Trudeau, the 20-month-old son - of Military Government of Nigeria, as his. mother Margaret Trudeau, right, looks on, at a garden party held yesterday at Government House; Ottawa. UNIFAX Justin Canadian Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau, gets a handshake from H. E. General Yakugu Gowan, left, head of the Federal Is Taking Day Off HOUSTON (UPI) - While ground controllers consider feeding Skylab spiders Arabella and Anita a drop of astronaut blood to keep them healthy, the space station crew takes today off to relax, clean house and shower. Alan L. Bean, Owen K. Garriott and Jack R. Lousma were given a "shopping list" of scientific and housekeeping chores to do if they wish, but Mission Control recommended they take it easy for the day. The crewmen each had 90 minutes set aside for a shower and could do some sun observation through their powerful telescopes if they wished. Feeds Spiders The astronauts gave a fly-size bite of rare filet rnignon 'toj KNOX COUNTY REPUBLICAN CREAM SOCIAL their space pets Thursday to keep them alive for the rest of the record two-month flight in the 'hope tho spiders; will continue spinning webs in weightlessness. Arabella has already learned to weave a web without the help of gravity, and backup spider Anita was to be given a chance later in the flight. Flight Director Donald R. Puddy said if the skylab mascots are finicky eaters and don't like steak, the crew might be called on to use a little leftover blood from a biomedical experiment to provide a meal. Household spiders like Arabella and Anita usually eat only live insects, like flys, and rare filet was the only food item aboard Skylab close to the little creatures tastes. "In the continuing saga of Arabella^... we're considering using a little MHO (experiment) blood," Puddy said. "We're continuing on with the AT Park Drive Dairy LOSEY and WHITESBORO Monday experiment with vigor." Arabella's gravity-defying feats each day have interested mission science-pilot Garriott, and Thursday he commended the high school girl who thought of the experiment, Judith Miles, 17, of Lexington, Mass. "She is to be congratulated for a very outstanding concept, a very interesting idea and one that might very well have some application in studies of how animals and even men think and behave when placed in a brand new environment," he said. Puddy said there were no medical reasons for mission control giving the three space voyagers the day off after they had volunteered to work a full schedule ior the 14th day in a row. "We just think we're coming up very fast on that efficiency curve," he said. "It was more or less a ground-elected decision."
