"Ah, she got me again," hrugged Orin Benson, sucking he trickle of blood from the bright red scratch on the arm holding the rope. "She likes to play rough." Chinook is an eastern timber wolf -- extinct in most of Ihe 48 contiguous stales; a source of bitter controversy in the few areas with remnant populations. Dancing nervously on long, slender hind legs, she snapped and pawed playfully at Benson's head and shoulders. Her long tongue lolled, but she took in every movement out of slanted yellow eyes. Benson hns raised several litters of wolves at his rural Eagle. Wis., sporting dog kennels since becoming fascinated with Ihe beast's manners and morals several years ago. "I sludy them and they study me," he said. "There's really no way to lame them. They get wild even when you let them oul for a little bit."

Officials of several of the nation's major cities cite several reasons for the dramatic rise in reported rape cases: a general crime increase, better statistical reporting methods, less reluctance to talk about sexual crimes. ATTITUDES CHANGING Prodded by feminists', police i several areas: nd prosecution unils" with 24-hour hotlines for victims. The bill proposes that these units make special efforts, fo hire women officers, as well as counselors, i attorneys and medical personnel to help rape victims. Illinois State Rep. Peter P. Peters, a Republican from Chicago, heads a bipartisan Rape Study Committee established by the General Assembly to look inlo possible changes in the rape law. i NO CONCLUSIONS ' Thus far, the group has reached no conclusions, but Peters said it has concentrated on jiuiv irimiJiiiHi i^vi m-ia mini vuu per cent of its original range. The U.S. Interior Department classifies the wolf as "a species whose prospects of survival mxl reproduction are in immediate copardy." But this status provides no actual protection. The Interior Department recently ordered Minnesota to scrap its predator control pro;ram, which allowed limited tilling of wolves. That leaves Alaska as the only state paying wolf bounties. The wolf has had complete protection in Michigan since 1960 and in Wisconsin since 19S7. WOLF IS VITAL Scientists claim the wolf is vital to the survival of the deer -- even though t h e normal adult wolf kills 20 deer per year -- by culling out the weaker deer to improve breeding strains and preventing . deer nerds from ovcrbiwsing. "Deer would not be deer il wolves weren't around," said Dr. William Roftlnson of the University of Northern Michigan in Marquelte. "The. deer is a swift, graceful animal, anr it's gotten that way through selective pressures brought by predators, and the wolf is the main predator." "They say waives are nccdcc to thin out the deer," scoffed Arvid Haurunncn, head of the anti - wolf Virginia ( M i n n . ) Sportsmen's Club. "Hunlers can do it just as well. The deer herd is down, and it's all be cause of the wolves. How abou prelecting the deer?"

"It's a tremendously tlicra- !eulic project for persons confined," Karncy said. "You have lo be gentle with pigeons to be successful and I feel this has a pacifying, calming effect on the men. There's a lot of therapeutic value to racing pigeons. There's the competitive angle and then there's the hours of care and training needed to produce top-notch racers.

But he doesn't want to · move a bedroom set oul of a room when he comes prepared to start work. "It doesn't even occur lo the occupants to remove drawers which would make bureaus lighter to move.

The man of family should do some preparation work before I arrive." Some people are pennywise but they don't think to ask questions when they are getting an estimate. For example when he paints a ceiling, h says, he must cover everything in a room, especially paintings mirrors and frames. As long as he must cover everything which takes time, he coult paint the entire room for just a little bit more. But he is seldom asked for two estimates. He doesn't like to pick oul colors for people. He'll take a .watch to a store and have the .taint made up, bul even then vomen may insist the purple or jreen or whatever is not the :ame shade. Even while is not I definable color, he says. He always asks which white. There ire many different ones, even n Ihe off-while color range. Off-white is very popular ·ighl now, he says. And people ire painting rooms that go to[ether in the same color. They've caught on to that decorating trick. And white hath- ·ooms are back because people vould rather put color into the iccessbries that can be changed at whim. He also advises co»sidering he cost of painting when you decide to install louvred doors. It ·aises the price of a job considerably. In one house, doors were strung across windows and walls of a living room, he says, and they were shocked at he §300 painting estimate. And if you are planning to ·sell your house within a year or jetqro you will redecorate again it is best to pick white or light colors that people can decorate around or repaint easily. It isn't a good idea cither, in his opinion, to use far-out wall- coverings in a house that might oe sold soon. In addition lo the fact lhal not everyone may like he paper, it may put your house in an unflattering light so that you might have two strikes against it when you are trying to sell it. You should also remember to remove all priceless antiques and sentimental objects in room that is to be painted or wall covered. And you should meet painter at the door in an ac ceptable costume, he advises.

Most of the developmenls which should be affecting prices have been around for some tima and should be well discounted. While the world food balance is tight, the price levels of many commodities do not seem to reflect any acute shortages. There are indications that major · countries such as the United States, West Germany and Japan are easing up on their policies of monetary restraint. On one hand, Ihis is encouraging to the markets in that it might ease some of the p r o b l e m s resulting from national policies of tight money. On the other hand, it does not directly remove the concerns over the European banking system, the low level of foreign exchange activity, and the problems associated with the re-cycling of Arab petrodollars These concerns conlinue to work against commodities. world trade In PRESIDENT FORD'S speech at the U n i t e d Naitons seem ed to put new emphasis on the A r a b countries role in the world economic scene and could set the stage for a tougher line on the oi problem. This is an area tha' has to be watched closely ir the weeks ahead. There were also rumblings that at a late: lime with a new Congress and a different economic situation the President might not onhv approve but initiate moves fo mandatory wage and price con trols. The fear of such a movi tends to be bullish on com modities in the short run. Assistant Secretary of Agri culture Clayton Yeutler saic that Ihe U.S. will probably ge by without export controls. A reasons for this belief he cile lack of major crop delerioratio since the Sept. 1 estimates hopes for a larger harvest nex year, the fact that Japan ha purchased her feed g r a i n need through June, and record whea and rice crops.

Anolher problem which was erious lasl summer and has eappeared in recent months is hat of daily price limits elative to normal price fluclu- tions. On a percentage basis, normal move at high prices s much greater than at lower irices. With trading limits not hanging accordingly, some markets have tended to trade imit up or down a high peren- .age of the lime. THIS TENDENCY has made many seemingly spread oppor- unities not work well in recent months as prices h a d many limit moves and did not allow spreads to make their traditional responses to chang es in direction. There is soAie discussion at present that the Chicago Mercantile Exchange will expand the daily limits on the live cattle contract. After a pick up in farmer selling of wheat late last week, activity died down. The market was hopeful that President Ford's U.N. speech would contain some specifics on food aid, but it did not. The market continues to churn in a broad and erratic trading range waiting for some stimulus lo make a move. As time passes, seasonal tendencies will t u r n from bearish to bullish. However, this is an unusual year in which seasonal tendencies have not also "worked." We expect the indecision in wheat to continue in the near future. A trading posture is recommended. Frost threals lo corn have provided little damage so far. As each day passes, the threat of major damage eases substantially. The market continues to focus on the degree of problems on the domestic demand side. The caltle placement statistic for August was nol helpful to corn prices. We expect the trading range in corn to continue. ®Du Pont Keg. TM CAMPUS HOSE Our Reg. 979 mmmf^fi. Sale Ends Sat. f ^9 Fashion colors with a new frosty sheen.
