The whale was first spotted south of the island, off Manasquan, N.J., more than a week ago. Spotted periodically, it has been nudging northward and is nearly around the island. "When we first picked him up last Thursday, I thought he was a rock en the jetty at Sbinnecock Inlet," said Welker, who had been out with some students in the school's 38-foot . twin-diesel boat. "We kept nosing the boat be tween the whale and the beach, and coaxed him back out to sea," he said. One of the students, Pelei Murphy, Jumper] in the water and swam close enough to touch the whale.

The committee also suggested as a means of contingency planning for a possible severe fuel shortage and reduced allocations .that the University consider schedule changes to allow a later start (and later ending) of the spring semester; to exchange all or part of the spring vacation for a later start of the spring semester and to shorten the spring semester one week to 42 periods.

That would make the Irish aurial mound, scientists claim, the oldest astronomically' oriented monument in the world.

DETROIT (AP) -- The mail must float through is the motto of the Detroit River postman -until the ice floes cometh. During the months when the river is navigable -- usually from mid-April to mid-December --- the Wescott Mail Boat delivers and picks up mail from personnel on passing freighters. For the crewmen who ply the Great Lakes, mail call is most important since they often have no contact with Ibo outside world for weeks at a time.

A report of the survey appeared in "Nature," the prestigious British science journal. During the winter solstice in 1969 O'Kelly observed that four minutes after sunrise the sun's rays shone through-the""roof box," a yard-wide rectangular opening just above the entrance. They penetrated to the rear of the burial chamber and fully illuminated it for 17 minutes 'before the sun. moved out of alignment. Patrick wrote that O'Kelly asked him "to make an accurate survey of the roof box to see if this phenomenon would have occurred when the^ burial chamber was first built." After a complicated series of measurements involving the of (he chamber, Patrick concluded "that the sun has shone down the passage to the chamber ever since the date of .its construction and will probably continue to do so forever." Patrick noted that Ireland mounds, sometimes called "fairy forts," but "to my knowledge none of them has a roof box" like the one in County Meath., "As this structure is unique, and as the whole monument is so grandiose," Patrick wrote, "it- seems likely that its orientation is deliberate." Little is known about the people who built the County Mealh mound, hut archeologists speculate they worshiped the sun and thus gave much attention to the study of its movement through the heavens. Penetration of the sun's rays to the altar stone, where the dead were apparently cremated, may have symbolized ultimate resurrection. A 1967 excavation of the tomb floor revealed the burnt bone fragments of about five persons. But "the tomb has been open to visitors since 1699," Patrick wrote, "and ait unknown amount of the original burial deposit may have been Tools Stolen Chester Naramor, 439 S. Church Ave., told Fayetteville police Saturday afternoon that several tools had been stolen from his car sometime since Friday night. The car was parked at his residence. Texas Rancher Slain; Name Found On Escapee's List , ROTAN, Tex. (AP) -- A West ISriydcr, about 50 miles west of Texas rancher on the "death list" of three Colorado state prison escaped convicts was [ound shot to death in front of Iiis ranch home Saturday. Authorities in four surrounding, counties organized a search [or the convicts who escaped from the state prison at Canon City Thursday. The victim, T.L. Baker, 65, had been a witness in a cafe involving one of the convicts, Dalton Williams, 29. The other convicts were identified as Jerry Aimer, 22, and Richard Magnum, 22. Aimer and Williams were former residents of here. Authorities said Baker and his son, Gary, were overcome by three armed men early Saturday morning. The son was lied up and the key to his automobile taken. They took the elder Baker with them. Fisher County Constable J.L. Decker said that Baker's son freed himself and then got another set of keys and drove into (own to notify authorities. Sheriff's deputies rushed to the Baker home and found his body next to that of his dog, Act 9 Bond issue To Be Decided B? Voters Tuesday mail on the river is unique. The mail boat rides alongside the large vessels as they move up or down the river, A rope is tossed between the ships and mail is placed in a pail fastened to the rope. The service also provides other conveniences. Often ships will order coffee and the mail boat makes the delivery-along with the mail. It also offers laundry and dry-cleaning - pickup and return. Deliveries-may also include supplies from a local marine store, machinery parts, sailors' baggage and even newspapers from 'Detroit and other cities. Occasionally, the mail boat take on or debarks a passenger and even this operation is done without the freighter cut- tin" down its speed. Just as the mail is put aboard, the Wescott brushes alongside the ship, keeps pace with it and then a crew member on the larger vessel lowers a ladder and the passenger gra'os it and. hoists himself aboard..

(AP) - A policeman and fireman searching for possible victims were killed Saturday w h e n ' a wall collapsed on them during a fire which destroyed six buildings. The victims were fireman Nick Parks, 25, the son of a former fire chief, and police officer Gale Emerson, 24. Firemen battled the fast spreading blaze, which broke out at 4 a.m., in an apartment area over a jewelry store, lor more than seven hours before it was contained.

CIO Saturday that it should fully disclose all contributions it has made or will make to the governor's race. Coon is opposed by David II. Pryor of Little Rock, the Democratic nominee for governor. Coon said one of the candidates in the governor's race had been labled "labor's lan." He asked the labor leaders, who had met to make political endorsements, if this was true. "We don't know for certain," he said. "We can only know with full disclosure. "The greatest threat to our governmental system." Conn said, "is large contributions by strong -special interest jrrouns. This applies to corporations and unions alike. The- best way :o clean up the sy?iem is to require full disclosure of all contributions." Coon said for the AFL-CIO to do anything less would be "an injustice to the people of Arkansas." Larry Monk, an aide to Coon, said the labor leaders did not receive this section of Coon's speech "with grat cheering mohs." Monk rated that Coon said, in effect, that he was not seek- in the endorsement of the AFL-CIO, but that he was seeking the support of individual AFL-CIO members. "He said, in effect, he would appreciate very much Ihe support of the individuals" Monk added. "He wanted the imlivid- help. the iniviuni contributions, but not if their vote was gotten bv coercion or if someone said they could deliver a certain vote." Selling Puts Market Into Another Slide NEW YORK (AP) -- Steady selling put the stock m a r k e t through another painful slide this past week, sweeping the popular averages to new depths [or the bear market that began almost 20 months ago. The Dow Jones average of 30 industrial stocks tumbled 44.74 points to 686.80, its first close below 700 since July. 9, 1970, and its lowest point since July 8 of that year. Ttie widely watched average stopped just short of matching its worst week of the year the. 45.76-point decline it had recorded the week before. The Dow now shows a loss of more than 90 points since President Ford took office Aug. 9. Most Wai Streeters are qiuck ;o observe, however, that there isn't any. evidence of a direct connection there. Rather, they say. investors are preoccupied by inflation and its unpleasant by-products, such as record high interest rates and a clouded outlook for the economy in general. The market opened on Monday with a broad and steady decline, but then tried to make a stand scraping together its first gain in nearly two weeks on Tuesday with a mild technical rally. BACK DOWNHILL But prices were back on downhill path Wednesday and stayed there through the rest of the week, finishing oft with a sharp drop Friday. General Motors; the nation's biggest industrial corporation and its second most widely held stock, recorded a 2-point drop over the week to 38%. It was the lowest price for the stock since early 1958. present plant, which now employs about 600 people. There is no tax increase or any citizen liability involved in the issue.

Officers said four spent shells were found next to Baker's body. They speculated the abductors took the rancher and then returned to the home and shot him before fleeing. A spokesman for the Stonewell County Sheriff's office said that he had heard that Williams had escaped from prison and was "coming to get" him and others at Rotan. Sheriffs officers, however, could not confirm at that time he reports of Williams' escape. Baker had been a witness in a burglary case involving Wiliams last year. Earlier Wil- Jams and another man had jeen charged with burglarizing the Baker home and taking a couple of guns. Baker, reportedly later identified the guns as those used by Williams in another burgary. Williams and another partner were arrested later in Fort Smith, Colo. Colorado .prison authorities said Williams was charged with assault and was serving an indefinite term. Magnum was serving three to five years for car theft and Aimer was in prison for life on a murder con- sels a year.

Deputy Sheriff David Gunn of Phillips County said Green, 22, driver for the ABG Transit Co. of Helena, was shot as he stopped his bus to pick up a lassenger. Gunn said the shooting possi- ily evolved from a private feud and that it apparently was not part of a robbery attempt. Green was giving change to a female passenger when the assailant shot him through the window on the driver's side of the bus. The bullet from a small-ca- libre revolver went through [rreen's left shoulder into his heart, Gunn said. Green was dead on arrival at a hospital.

Wilson declined to identify others on the list, but he said it "involves a lot of people here in Colorado as well as Texas." Wilson said all the people on William's list, both in Texas and in Colorado, "are being watched pretty closely." The trio escaped Thurday night but not missed until hours later when dummies were discovered in their bunks. Deputy Warden John Griffin said no one knows how they got past the guard tower and spotlights. He said they anpar- ently stole a car within sight of the guard towers. In New Mexico, state police said thre men robbed a service station attendant, his . wife nnd a salesman early Friday in Wagon Mound, 66 miles south of the Colorado border on Interstate 25. Late Friday night in southeast New Mexico, police said they shoved a gun in the ribs of Owen Johnson, 25, a Roswell teacher.

Once this was done, he was cast adrift to row to the next ship or to be picked up by the "Florence B." After several changes in ownership, the J. \V.

The National Weather Service said little change in the sta'g- nant air conditions is expected Sunday and Monday, but the MWS said temporary improvement would occur in the afternoons due to widely scattered showers and surface heating. The stagnant conditions will cause smoke dust and gasses to accumulate near the ground, the NWS said. The state Department of Pollution Control and Ecology said that the air quality monitoring had indicated no significant increase in air contaminant levels since Friday, but that the levels remained sli'ghtly above normal.
