Bill is Bill .Walton, the S-foot- 1 UCLA All-American who has signed a five-year contract with ;he Portland Trail Blazers of the National Basketball Association.

If he doesn't jump fast enough, the researcher shocks him by remote control and he rolls and howls in pain. Lady is being electric shocked too. But she is too terrified to leap. So she suffers the shock in frozen silence. Why is the researcher electric shocking Spot and Lady? Because that's what he was educated and trained to do. Students at institutions all across the country are receiving the same kind of science education and training. In medical schools. Universities. Colleges. Hospitals. Primate centers. Even in veterinary schools. Students can earn their PhD's and other academic titles by electric shocking animals and tormenting and injuring them in other ways. Congress votes millions of dollars annually, to help pay for this education in cruelty, but then is unable or afraid to tell the public how the money is really used. Only an aroused citizenry can stop this secrecy in government and this abuse of animals that has been masquerading, as education for more than 50 years. We need your help to inform the public of what is being done to animals in our institutions of higher learning. Please use the coupon below for more information. ·UNITED ACTION FOR ANIMALS. INC.
