Continue Probe of Alleged Bribe MADISON —(/P)— The Dane County district attorney said Saturday he was awaiting developments which would determine the next step in the who- offered-what lobbyist-legislator case. Joseph W. Bloodgood, charged by statute with prosecuting lobbying laws, said he'd confer again with Assemblyman Keith Jardie. Democrat rom Taylor, who stirred up the fuss. Hardie said on the floor Wednesday a lobbyist offered him money so Hardie couid take the Education Committee he heads to dinner. Hardie made the accusation during consideration of a bill on retail installment buying. Hardie did not publicly identify the lobbyist. Tones Down Remarks Later Hardie toned down his remarks, .saying no actua money was handed him in an envelope, but that the lobby ist volunteered to pick up the dinner tab for a dozen eaters Bloodgood said he got in contact with the lobbyist Har die named. The lobbyist—stil unidentified—emphatically de nied he offered any money to mproperly influence legisla tion. ) Conflicting-statements from Hardie and the lobbyist Bloodgood said, made it neces sary to continue the investiga tion. Verified Complaint Hardie said he'd talk with Bloodgood again. He wouldn' say if he would enter a verl fled complaint, a necessary step if court action is to be started to revoke the lobbyists license to lobby. If Hardie does 'not sign a complaint, the district attorney said, another course of ac tion would be to issue a .John Doe warrant and this could lead to calling witnesses and taking testimony. With the Legislature involved in a big rush to dispose of a big backlog of business in order to achieve a recess, observers felt it would be a spell before anything more comes of the case.

The kangaroo family has more than 50 member.s, some called by such names as euro, pademelon, wallaby and wall­ aroo. DOVER, England —iff)— Britain's revolutionary "flying saucer" that skims on a self- made air cushion over land and sea made a successful crossing of the English Channel Saturday. Ship sirens in the harbor wailed a welcome as the disc­ like hovercraft sped to shore, skimming a foot above the waves. The craft sent up a plume of spray in its wake as it came in. Four Passengers The hovercraft which reportedly made the 23-mile crossing from Calais to Dover in 2 hours 13 minutes had four men aboard — Peter Lamb, 39, the pilot, Christopher S. Cockereil, inventor who rode in the strange craft's cabin, and two other men who rode outside as ballast. The four-ton craft is powered with a 450-horsepower engine which drives a single mahogany fan. This provides air pressure which is blown through ducts beneath the fuselage and cushions the craft as it flits above the waves. "Great Trip" The craft roared across the harbor without touching down and skimmed up onto the landing ramp. It hovered 10 inches above the ground and then settled down. "We had a great trip," said Lamb, a Royal Navy lieutenant commander as he emerged from the cabin. "Everything went very decently," .said Cockereil. The drawing of a sea serpent on early maps denoted unexplored areas.
