Birds extermina ted
By AP and UPI
FT. CAMPBELL, Ky. - Piles
of carcasses littered the ground
a n d frost-winged blackbirds
hung grotesquely from the trees
yesterday following a massive
bird kill carried out by the
Army on this sprawling Ken-
tucky-Tennessee border post.
A run by Huey helicopters
spraying the chemical tergitol
over the roost was followed by
a man-made bath of 70,000 gal-
lons of water which formed
icicles over a section of the
birds' resting places.
"THERE WERE a significant
number of birds killed," said
Lt. Col. John Klose, information
officer for the post, although
only a portion of the entire 17.5
million birds was sprayed.
The tergitol solution, coupled
with the chilly bath, stripped
the birds' feathers of their pro-
tective oils, leaving them at
the mercy of the weather as
temperatures dipped into the
U.S. Wildlife Resources offi-
cials wearing yellow rubber
suits began gathering data on
the bird kill.
MEANWHILE, injured birds
fluttered helplessly about the
area. An Army spokesman said
they would eventually die.
The birds, branded a health
hazard by local officials, were
loused with water by snorkle
When Army Secretary Howard
Callaway authorized the kill
this week, he called the birds
health hazards to people and
animals, potential hazards to
aviation and damaging to agri-
culture crops in surrounding
areas. The birds have been
blamed for the spread of his-
toplasmosis, a human lung ail-
The Army partly attributed
the low kill ratio to the fact
that six acres of the roosting
area were not watered down as
heavily as the others. However,
one Army official said films of
the helicopter runs showed that
flocks of birds flew from the
roost at each helicopter pass.
First lady's support
of ERA draws fire
A SCENE FROM The Birds? Not quiet, this is for real. Swarms of blackbirds darken the
sky over Fort Campbell, Ky. recently. The Army just began a program to exterminate the
birds in the area, after winning a long court battle with birdwatchers and other fowl lovers.

WASHINGTON (1P) - Betty
Ford's mail at the White House
is running 3 to 1 against her
outspoken support of passage of
the Equal Rights Amendment
(ERA) to the Constitution to
end sex discrimination.
Press Secretary, Sheila Weid-
enfeld, said yesterday that mail
the White House has counted so
far shows 360 in praise of Ford's
efforts and 1,128 against.
THE FIRST LADY'S staff was
not at all reluctant to announce
the figures and Ford was re-
ported unperturbed by the re-
action. "She expected it," said
Mrs. Ford, visiting with wives
of the U.S. Chamber of Com-
merce directors at Blair House,
explained to a reporter her as-
sessment of the mail count:
"It's those who are against
(ERA) who are doing the writ-
ing . . . those who are for it
sit back and say 'good for her-
"personalized and distinctive"
FORD has been making tele-
phone calls and writing to legis-
lators in several states where
ERA has come up for action re-
cently, including Illinois, Mis-
souri, North Dakota,, Arizona
and Nevada. Thirty-four of the
38 states needed have ratified
She says she plans to continue
her personal effort despite the
setback of votes in states such
as Arizona, Nevada and Utah.
Her efforts for ERA on her
own have inspired letters to the
editors of newspapers around
the country, have sparked some
editorials and has brought mail
to the White House from around
Some of the sentiments from
the letters to Ford follow:
"It is so wonderful to have a
First Lady who is concerned
about people and not just about
clothes or decorating or trees-
these are fine but human dignity
and freedom concern me more."
