"We use rams for their testicles, ewes for their babies," Shirley said. Asked why testicles were removed, he said. "All 1 know is that he (Peterson) takes them out. I don't know w h a t he does with them." 60 SHEEP Shirley said he cared for a flock of about 60 sheep at Pine Island, near Peterson's New Life Clinic in Fort Myers. Shirley said he occasionally took sick sheep lo a Fort Myers veterinarian. Dr. Louis B. Randall, but never had the entire flock examined or inspected.

(AP) -- Re overy crews from Reynolds Mining Co. tried unsuccessfully tVednesay night to remove an ,000-pound loader-tram from he mud and sand in an effort o locate a miner missing since cave-in at a bauxite mine iere Monday night. A spokesman For Reynolds said there was little hope that rescue workers would find James Grooms, 55, of Bryant alive. He and Sidney Hale, 56, of Little Rock were trapped a 500-foot shaft at the Mars Hill aauxite mine. Hale was rescued Tuesday after being given up ' r dead. Ken Parker, a company public relations man, said il is possible that Grooms could be bur ied in the mud near the tram, or the force of the slridng mud coutd have pushed him farther back. Grooms and Hale were working near the tram, a machine used to remove bauxite from the mine, when the sand ant mud caved in on them, Parker lid. He said the recovery crews tried to pull the tram out by attaching a line from it to an other train. He said the crews now would try to use two trams to hoist (he third one out. Tli recovery operation for the Iran is a slow process because the tram is embeded in what Park er called "a thick muck." "It'll be a miracle if hi (Grooms) comes out alive,* said Virgil Tarvin, Groom': brother-in-law. "We've got li always hope for a miracle.' * Another miner called it "hal a miracle" when Hale was res- You and Your Friends Are Cordially Invited To The Grand Opening Of HOLLYWOOD SATURDAY AND SUNDAY, JUNE 8th and 9th FROM 12:00 NOON UNTIL 8:00 P.M.

"I prayed awhile," he said. "I never pan eked." Hale and G r o o m s were caught in what miners call a 'sand run," similar lo a mud slide. The flow that caught the .wo was a '' blowout''--rushing sand, water and rock down the 8-fooi-high tunnel like a flash flood. Hale said he was silling in the driver's seat of a tram when Grooms ran toward him, yelling, "Hold H back! Stop it (the sand run)!" But Hale said he and the machine couldn't begin to hold it aack. Grooms was swallowed up by the, rushing sand. "I knew he was gone," Hale said. Hale said he jumped up quickly and ran to the back of the tunnel away from the shaft. It proved to be the only place he could have gone and survived, Hale said. He said the room or the cave was about 20 feet high as compared lo eighl feet in Ihe Urn nel. When the sandy water reached him, it raised him up to within four feet of the ceiling. Since he wasn't injured, he said he treaded water in the semi-solid mess. Some air was trapped between the sand and the top of the cave. Hale said, however, that he almost "froze to death" before he was rescued from the chilly slush.
