What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

(AP) - The Asiatic lion once roamed from southern Europe to Asia. Now, ISO are left in a game preserve in India where human scavengers steal their food. ; Experts estimate 40,000 tigers, lived in the jungles of India 25 years ago. Only ¡2,500 remain, saved when the Indian government banned tiger huntinjg and trade in tiger skins. Once-plentiful in the Amazon Basin of South America, the jaguar has so declined that zoologists must travel hundreds of miles to find one. In short, the big cats of the world—lions, tigers, cheetahs, leopards, jaguars,nnd others— are rushing toward extinction. Unless something is done, and soon, zoologists warn, the cats will join the dodo bird and passenger pigeon as museum relics; That was the grim picture painted here recently when more v than a dozen big cat experts from India, Africa, Europe, Canada and the United States gathered to assess the future of the felidae. ‘‘The large predators have reached the twilight of their ex­ istence,” said Dr. George Schaller, a zoologist with the New York Zoological Society and Rockefeller University who spent three years studying lioni in Africa. “Shot for 'so-called sport, in demand by the fur industry, trapped and poisoned because they kill deer, livestock and other animals in which man has vested interest, the tigers, leopard, cheetah and others have been so ruthlessly exterminated in recent years that their future is not assured.\ it’s not too late to preserve the big cats, the scientists agreed. But it will be a difficult task involving international agreements with emerging nations where economic growth often takes priority over saving endangered species of wildlife. The biggest obstacle is human population growth. In Africa, India, Asia and South America, expanding population is consuming more and more forests and grasslands, robbing the cate of native habitats and prey animals. The Asiatic lion, for example, shares its sanctuary with several thousand humans and must prey on farmers’ cattle. But groups of scavengers members of India’s “untouchables” caste, are alert for lion kills and quickly move in, driving the lions away. They take the hide and meat of the kill, leav­ ing' the remains for vultures. A more immediate threat es­ pecially to the spotted cats, is the demand for coats made of their skins. Although most countries have laws protecting their cats, poach­ ing continues. A poacher can sell a leopard skin for $50, as much money as many Africans make in a year. Several skins sewn into a coat might, fetch $5,000. GM Reports Record Sales DETROIT (AP) - General Motors, first of the auto companies to report early April auto sales, said today they were the highest of any April 1-10 period in GM history. GM reported 168,078 cars were sold in the nine-day period, up 55 per cent over the 108,107 of a year ago and topping the mark of 133,405 set in 1965. Mack W. Worden, vice president in charge of GM’s marketing staff, said the sales were helped along by incentive programs in the Chevrolet, Oldsmobile, Pontiac and Buick divisions. He added, \We continue to see a strong basic demand for nur product ... the outlook continues excellent for a high level of sales this spring.\ Lima Newsletter VFW Election Set Scout Troop 63 of Lima met Tuesday night.
