Monday, December 19, 1977 HOPF. t.\Hti.i STAR Page Five Ducks Unlimited: 40 of successful conservation years Richard Boone of "Paladin" fame narrated a story, "The Ancient Exodus," at a meeting of the Hope Rotary Club Thursday, December 15 in the Sheraton Inn. Ricky Butler of the Southwest Arkansas Ducks Unlimited Chapter showed the film about the mysterious migration of birds with emphasis on waterfowl. The program was arranged by Yancey Reynolds, and Bill Wray introduced the speaker. Ducks Unlimited was founded 40 years ago and today has over 200,000 members. It can truly be considered an international conservation organization, continental in scope, and has turned 40 years of concern and know-how into 40 years of successful resource management. Recognizing the need to Involve youth in waterfowl conservation, DU has designed a special program for those 15 years of age of younger. It's called the Greenwing Program and has already enrolled over 12,000 Greenwings nationwide. DU looks to the great land reserves of Canada for sustaining this renewable resource, for it alone can provide the additional millions of acres of habitat essential to stabilize North America's waterfowl. Thus, Ducks Unlimited stands ready to carry this waterfowl legacy into the future.

Oklahomans rally behind Anita OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — An Oklahoma City minister says he has been "astonished" by the favorable response to a plan to let the country know Oklahomans stand behind Anita Bryant. Robert L. Wise, pastor of Our Lord's Community Church, and Larry Jones, a Southern Baptist evangelist, placed advertisements in metropolitan newspapers here Sunday asking for signatures and $1 donations for a message backing Miss Bryant's stand against homosexual rights. "What she has stood for has not been fairly represented," Wise said Sunday. "We feel her right to speak has been very much violated." The catalyst for the advertisements, Wise said, was a decision by the National Broadcasting Co. to not invite Miss Bryant to participate in the Orange Bowl parade Jan. 2, prior to the football game between Oklahoma and Arkansas. NBC spokesmen said the network wished to avoid possible demonstrations. "She has paid a tremendous price for her stand," Wise said. "We are asking sponsors of the Orange Bowl parade if they concur in NBC's action." Miss Bryant is a former Miss Oklahoma and an inductee of the Oklahoma Hall of Fame. She led a recent campaign in Dade County, Fla., to overturn an ordinance prohibiting discrimination against homosexuals. Along with her husband, Bob Greene, Miss Bryant has toured the country amid Increasing controversy in a campaign opposing homosexual rights. Wise said he has seen television news film showing Miss Bryant being struck in the face with a cream pie, and has heard her made the subject of jokes on national television programs. "We just felt like it was our duty, that our opinion was that of the majority," Wise said of the signature collection effort. The advertisements note that Miss Bryant has been selected the most admired woman in the world by readers of Good Housekeeping magazine. "Anita exemplifies the faith and convictions of many of us," the ad purchased by Wise and Jones reads. "Let's tell the world and the media that we stand with her and believe in her right to have convictions and the right to differ without media harassment." Wise said he has already heard from "an awful lot of people" about the ad, and said he was "astonished by the response throughout the state." But he refused to estimate how many signatures and donations had already been received. The $1 donation la to cover the cost of a "mail-a-gram," publicity and to "bring Anita to Oklahoma to let the nation know where we stand," according to the advertisement. CHOLAME, Calif. This tiny community of five residents has a $15,000 memorial to actor James Dean, killed nearby in an auto accident 22 years ago. The memorial, erected around a tree a mile down the highway from where Dean died Sept. 30, 1955, was built by a wealthy Japanese businessman, Seita Ohnishi, who said he was an admirer of Dean. Dean was 24 and had made three films - "East of Eden," "Rebel without a Cause" and "Giant" - when he was killed while going to an auto race. DETROIT (AP) - It was a baggage mixup to end all baggage mixups — $9 million in registered securities and cash was missing. The FBI mobilized agents in three cities Sunday to find the loot, missing during a flight from New York to Chicago. The mystery began when the cash was loaded on a Northwest Airlines flight at Kennedy Airport in New York. A courier from Purolator Security Inc., handling the shipment, was on the flight, but the box containing the securities was left unguarded in the cargo hold. After a one-hour routine stopover in Detroit, the plane arrived at Chicago's O'Hare International Airport at 5:13 a.m. But when Purolator officials tried to pick up their package, it wasn't there. The airplane, meanwhile, continued on its flight to Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport. NICOSIA. C\pr;is AP i Chanting 'Heath to the kidnappers." 50,tW Greek C\ priots jammed Freedom Square in downtown Nicosia today to demonstrate support for President Spyros Kyprianou following the release of his son by right-wing extremists. The president repeated he has "forgiven" the kidnappers of his 19-year-old son Achillens. "For those who have repented, there is still a place among us. For those who have not there will be punishment," he said. Schools, shops and offices were closed for three hours during the rally. It was the largest demostration seen in Nicosia since the late Archbishop Makarios, Kyprianou's predecessor, returned to Cyprus after five months in exile following the 1974 coup. Achilleas Kyprianou, who was freed at dawn Sunday, stood with his father, mother and 17-year-old brother Marcos on the speakers' platform. The brothers wore uniforms of the National Guard, the Greek Cypriot army in which Achilleas is a second lieutenant. Released after the president promised not to punish the kidnappers, young Kyprianou re- ported that he was kept blindfolded in n chilly underground hole th*t was 6 feet long and 6 feet wide but only 19 inches high. The youth was kidnapped last Wednesday from outside a commando training camp in the Troodos mountains southwest of Nicosia. The kidnappers, who were believed to be members of the EOKA-B underground, demanded amnesty for all political offenders. "At the beginning, I was almost sure they would execute me," young Kyprianou told a news conference, "and I nsked them, as a reserve officer of commando forces, to be executed ..: with open eyes and my hands untied." He said they did not reply. Kvprinnou said he was treated better than he expected, but "conditions of my captivity were rather bad." "The first two days we faced a big food problem. We had bread and water ... once or twice a day, Rut I shared the food and living conditions of !tsy kidnappers, and their be- hflvtor toward me was very good." Forced to lie prone because of the low roof of his cell, the young man said he could not attempt to escape because he was blindfolded, bound and guarded contantly by "two men who definitely were not beginners." "I have forgiven the kidnappers," President Kyprianou told reporters. "They are free to leave or stay in Cyprus. It is up to them to decide." Local press reports said 10 men were believed involved in the plot and the government knew the names of five of them. The president said he had information the kidnapping was engineered by Vases Pav- lides. a 38-year-old EOKA-B terrorist wanted In connection with the 1974 coup that ousted the late President Makarlos and touched off the Turkish invasion of Cyprus. EOKA-B Is an underground group of right-wing guerrillas dedicated to "enosis," the union of Cyprus with Greece, It wns quiet for two years after the coup was crushed but has recently become active again.
