tH* MMOSPORT Wtttl T. tBKAS, lUNDAY. NOVEMBER U. PtgtltA Photos may show Loch Ness Monster County child welfare cases increase LONDON (AP) - A leading British naturalist said Saturday he is convinced by an American research team's B otographs that the iled Loch Ness monster is a living prehistoric reptile — or rather a family of them. "The most important thing shown is the flipper of the animal, which I find very convincing," said Sir Peter Scott, an organizer of a symposium at which closely guarded photographs taken by a team led by American Robert Rlnes will be shown to the world on Dec. 10. "There is no known whale or dolphin which has a flipper this shape," Scott told a British Press Association reporter at his home in Gloucestershire. "But there are flippers of the same general shape in the fossil records of prehistoric reptiles." Rines, a patent lawyer and dean of Franklin Pierce Law Center in Concord, N.H., was quoted in a copyright story in the Boston Globe as saying that his Boston-based research group had taken pictures proving the existence of the monster. Rines did not say what kind of animal he thought the monster was. He said he has invited scientists to the symposium next month in Edinburgh, Scotland, to try to get clues to its identity.

The photos were taken with a high- speed camera developed by Harold Eclgerton, a Massachusetts Institute of Technology electrical engineering professor, the newspaper said. Scott, son of antarctic explorer Robert Falcon Scott and an eminent naturalist In his own right, said, "I am quite certain there is a population of very large unknown animals in the Loch." a deep gash between mountains that runs almost the whole breadth of Scotland. He said he is "violently against" any attempt to capture any of the creatures, which he said are "possibly 40 feet long." "There may only be a very small number hanging on by the skin of their teeth against extinction." said Scott, a founder of the Loch Ness investigation bureau which collaborated with Kines. "You can't catch one without the grave risk of killing it." Scott said he believes there are 20 to 50 creatures in the Loch and that one photograph depicts two of them Scott said he is one of a handful of persons who have seen the dozen photographs taken by Kines. The most recent were taken AO feet below the Loch's surface with th« help of a strobe-Rash light, he said Ladbrokes. a bookmaking firm that long ha* taken bets on "Ne&sie," reported that the posted odds against proof of its NEED Hat»?
