No Live Coverage Planned For Evel's leap ny JAX atiAKDun NEW YORK (AP) -- The latest news on live TV coverage of Evel Knievel's rocket-powered leap over Idaho's Snake River Canyon is downright grim today. The networks don't plan any iive coverage. The Idaho Laud Board held an auction Wednesday for rights to televise the great leap from state property on the north side of the canyon, where Knievel intends to land. It received no bids. CBS Sports withdrew a tentative offar of $50.000 it had made on Tuesday, lest Top Rank, Inc., promoter of the leap, carry out its threat to cancel the whole thing if live TV coverage is allowed.

(AP) -"We've never had anything like -this," says Craig Noel, a man not easily swayed to verbal rapture. { SRO business at the O l d - Globe Theater's 25th annual Shakespeare Festival explains the doughty producing director's terse gratification.

SCHOLAR-TEACHER The first seven production were put on by B, Iden Payn drama's venerable schola teacher. "What the Globe has don from a national standpoint says Noel, "is that actors a: playing verse better than b fore, getting away from th Brando naturalism. "For a nucleus of classic a tors, the Globe and the Shak neare Festival at Ashlan re., have contributed much.' As an adjunct to the 420-se Old Globe, the 245-seat Cart Theater next dorir was opene in 1969 for exhibit of more co temporary pieces. This year has been "Your Own Thing the prize-winning musical ada tation of "Twelfth Night." Noel's satisfaction with silv anniversary results is slight tempered. "What I really wanled w, another theater," he says. Th plan, gestating for some year is to erect a 700-seat audit rium of inconspicuous S3-m lion design in a canyon behin Ihe Old Globe, for an extensic of programming. When the Shakespeare Fes val isn't in progress, the Ba boa Park plant reverts eat winter to amateur communi theatrics. "Bulley" and "Go spell" move in this time whi Shakespeare moves out.

Their droppings are found everywhere, they carry away shiny objects like metal spoons, any food left uncovered is eaten up and they create a great din at dusk and dawn. The crows have not begun attacking babies but some of the 110,000 residents of Klang believe that may only be a matter of time if they are not eliminated. "The people will have to put up with the noise of the tapes for a short time but then the greater crow nuisance will 'be solved," said Azmi. The town council is hoping that the crows will be frightened away to islands off Klang in the Straits of Malacca, but what happens if they fly to Kuala Lompur only 20 miles away? "That is the business of the Kuala Lumpur authorities," says Azmi. Officials explained that the idea of the "music and noise" is to frighten away the crows and change breeding habits. The frightened crows will leave he eggs cold whenever they hear the noise and the eggs won't hatch. Finally the crows won't come jack to the area, but will find new areas. The authorities expect some of the other birds in the area to je frightened away, too, but the crow nuisance is so great that they are willing to risk losing some of the other birds. Population Meef Warned Of Food Production Lag BUCHAREST, Romania (AP) -- The world's agricultural production may not keep ahead of its population growth, even with the application of modern technology, the deputy director of the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization warned the World Population Conference Wednesday. Roy Jackson emphasized that in almost 40 per cent of the developing countries, food production has failed to keep up with population growth, and almost two - thirds of the so - c a 11 e d Third World it has not kept up with the increase in domestic demand. Consequently, he continued, much of the world has come to rely increasingly on the North American "bread basket," which now supplies more than half the world's wheat and other food grains and about 80 per cent of its soybeans. But Lester Brown of the Overseas Development Council in Washington, D.C., warned that by being "a supplier of food to the rest of Ihe world," the United States may be put in the position of having to decide who is fed and who starves. North America is not immune lo drought, frost and other vagaries of weather as well as economic and political disruptions, he continued. He expressed doubt lhat if crops are poor, the United States and Canada could export the quantities of food Asia and Africa need. More Universify Scholarships Are Announced Gary D.
