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.

LOS ANGELES (AP) — In the unrelenting use of the oceans as dumping grounds for his wastes, man is beginning to create “ dead seas\ where only worm-like organisms can live. These spots are found in the mouths of harbors, in open waters adjacent to large coastal cities and in the estuaries where river waters mingle with the sea. They are throwing nature’s biological cycles off kilter and threaten the ocean’s future as a natural resource in a world facing food and mineral shortages. For centuries the oceans have been regarded as virtually limitless garbage and sewage disposal facilities. Until lately, the organic wastes—sewage, garbage, dredging spoils and industrial materials—never exceeded the marine environment’s ability to assimilate them. But now the oceans are be coming overburdened. Wherever organic residue build up, fish are disappearing and marine plants Yellowstone Plan WASHINGTON (AP) — Demo cratic Rep. John Melcher says he is urging Interior Secretary Rogers C. B. Morton to do something about what the Mon tanan claims are lagging plans for observance of the 100th an niversary of Yellowstone National Park. “ Extensive maintenance and improvements are necessary within the park and along the corridors entering it if Yellowstone is to be the international showplace envisioned for the Centennial year,\ Melcher said. Melcher said in a letter to Morton that plans are lagging for the celebration which he fears may turn out to be a “ fiasco at which we demonstrate to the world the magnitude of the mess into which one of the wonders of the world and its surrounding area can be brought.” President Nixon has not ap pointed eight public members of Will Use Influence To Help the Poor WASHINGTON (AP) - Arthur Ashe says he will use his contacts in the tennis world to help raise $500,000 for a student project to bring medical care to the poor in Mississippi’s Quitman County. Students from Howard Uni versity, a predominantly Negro school here, have been trying for years toTaise the money to build and staff a hospital in the county, one of the nation’s poorest. “ As a middle class blapk in volved with a sport connection with the socially elite I know a lot of people with lots of money,” Ashe, a top U.S. tennis player, told a news conference Thursday. the National Parks Centennial Commission which was created nine months ago to plan the cel ebration of the establishment of Yellowstone, the first national park, in March 1872, Melcher said. The commission is supposed to arrange an international con ference on national parks, with Yellowstone the focal point of the celebration, Melcher said. Especially in need of work, he added, is the Beartooth highway which runs from Red Lodge to Cooke City and the park’s north east entrance. Forest Service tourist facilities are needed along the highway, he said. Tour in New Guinea Anthropologist Plans NEW YORK (A P ) - Dr. Margaret Mead, 69, says she will return in July to New Guinea, where her studies of primitive culture brought her fame in the 1930s.

Certain things I will not do,” says the 20-year-old daughter of Queen Elizabeth II. The princess, known for her trendy clothes, disclosed her aversion to the short shorts in a program to be televised Sunday dying until only organisms that tolerate an oxygen-starved en vironment remain. Says Dr. Carl Hubbs, 76-year-old professor emeritus of marine biology at Scripps Institution of Oceanography at La Jolla, Calif.: “ There isn’t anywhere in the world we can dump something in the oceans and be safe, because the oceans are one. Anything we dump eventually is going to ac cumulate.” The dead and dying spots are early signs of the accumulation, particularly of raw sewage or sewage treatment plant effluent and sludge hauled by barges or pumped from underwater pipes. Marine biologists don’t know precisely how many dead spots there are on their locations. But one of the best known and intensely studied dead seas is just outside New York harbor and in the western end of Long Island Sound. Sewage’, sludge, garbage, dredging spoils, and industrials wastes have been dumped there and farther out to sea for more than 46 years. In 1968, the Sandy Hook (N.J.) Marine Laboratory o f th e ' Department o f the Interior began a study of New York dumping for the U.S. Corps of Engineers.The biologists found that sewage had created a 14-square mile dead area. Fish nearby had a mysterious disease that rotted their fins. The pollution was thought to be a possible cause. Even pollution-tolerant worms were affected. , Death of the area was caused by depletion of oxygen—consumed by Snow Course Red Rock River Snow Depth . 4-1-71 H Water Content 4-1-71 Water Content Percentage 4-1-71 As to Long Term April 1st Average Camp Creek 1 49” 17.0” 188 Kilgore 47” 18.2” 204 Lakeview Canyon 61” 20.6” 179 Lakeview Ridge 50” 16.2” 162 White Pine Ridge 28” 6.6” 127 Beaverhead River Carier Creek >. 28” 7.3” 126 Dad Creek Lake Divide [- Elk Horn Springs 60” 20.8” 160 56” 19.9” 221 . 42” 12.6” 128, Lemhi Pass )■ 41” 12.3’T 145 Notch ;’ 66” 24.0” 176 Trail Creek ’ 40” 12.0” 143 Big Hole River : ; Abundance Lake 72” 27.6” . 139 Bloody Dick i 51” 16.2” 146 Darkhorse Lake 98” 40.9” 151 Fool Hen 65” 24.4\ 137 Gibbons Pass 83” 31.5\ 137 Goldstone 65” 21.9” 148 Saddle Mtn. 94” 34.4” 133 PROCLAMATION I:’ .
