Sweepstakes slip-up'
Everyone was a winner in the Little Rock, Ark., Shopper's News
Weekly. sweepstakes-and that's no exaggeration. The paper ran a
lucky number contest recently, and the reader with the number 69161
on his or her paper was entitled to $250 cash. But when the paper hit
the stands, every paper-all 39,000 copies-had, you guessed it, num-
ber 69161. Sure enough, traffic quickly backed up nearly a half-mile
from the newspaper's office, and phone lines were jammed as
thousands of lucky winners tried to claim their prize. The money was
finally awarded to the first caller. A Shopper's News vice-president
blamed the mishap on a stamping machine malfunction.

MOSCOW (AP)-Soviet scientists
say they have gathered evidence poin-
ting to the existence in Siberia of a
dark, shaggy-haired, shrill-voiced wild
man in some ways resembling the
legendary Snow Man of the Himalayas.
The Soviet news agency Tass said
specialists at the Institute of Language,
Literature and History in Soviet Yakuti
have been evaluating testimony *of
Siberians who claim they encountered
the manlike creature called
THE NAME MEANS "fugitive" or
"outcast" in one of the dialects of
Yakutia, a vast expanse of forest,
mountains and frozen tundra in north-
eastern Siberia.
"The famous Himalayan Snow Man,
Yeti, whom many explorers believe
exists, might prove to have a Yakutian
relative," wrote Tass correspondent
Sergi Bulantsev on the institute's fin-
The Himalayan Snow Man is also
known as the Abominable Snow Man.
Large tracks in the snow are ascribed
to such a creature. Some scientists
believe that, if he exists, he may be a
form of unclassified ape.
IN THE AMERICAN northwest,
there also have been reports of a huge
creature known as a Sasquatch, or "Big
Foot", which has been described by
various people who claim to have seen
it as looking like a bear or ape.
The Tass story said "there is a lot of
testimony of witnesses who ran into the
wild man" in Yakutia's Verkhoyansk
region, about 400 miles north of the city
of Yakutsk.
"The old-timers of highland villages
of the Verkhoyansk region warn guests
who come from afar: 'Don't go alone in
the darkness. Be careful in the moun-
tains. Don't go to the river-Chuchunaa
might appear,' " the account said.
ACCORDING TO the witnesses, Tass
said, "Chuchunaa" was described as
tall and thin, standing about 6 feet 6 in-
ches, with long arms hanging below his
"He feeds on raw meat and wears a
reindeer skin," the story said. "He
cannot speak, but only utters shrill
The creature was in the habit of
sneaking up to people's dwellings and
stealing food, Tass said. Upon seeing a
hunter or a reindeer breeder, he would
run away in most instances, but
sometimes would start fighting.
mushroom and berry collectors ran into
him most frequently at dawn or late in
the evening," the account noted.

WASHINGTON (AP) -J The chair-
man of the Senate Energy Committee,
Sen. Henry Jackson, circulated a pro-
posal yesterday calling for natural gas
deregulation by 1985 as part of a new ef-
fort to put President Carter's derailed
energy program back on the congres-
sional track.
Jackson met yesterday with Energy
Secretary James Schlesinger to outline
the new proposal, which according to a
staff analysis would cost consumers
about $9 billion more through 1985 than
Carter's own proposal for continued
price controls.
A JACKSON AIDE, Betsy Moler, said
Schlesinger did not indicate whether
the administration could support the
senator's proposal but that Jackson
was hopeful of winning White House
The measure would immediately
boost the price ceiling for "new" gas,
produced from wells drilled after 1974
from the current $1.47 to $1.84 per'1,000
cubic feet, compared to Carter's pro-
posal for a new $1.75 price ceiling. And
under the proposal, prices could rise by
3 percent a year beyond the national in-
flation rate, until the controls were lif-
THE PROPOSAL also would give the
president the power to reimpose the
controls if price increases to consumers
got out of hand. It would also extend
price controls during the interim period
to now-unregulated intrastate gas,
which is used in states where it is pro-
duced, such as Texas and Louisiana.
And the president would have the
authority to order gas moved from the
intrastate market to cold-weather
states to meet emergencies like last
winter's prolonged cold spell.
Jackson, whom the Carter admini-
stration has called upon to break the
months-long stalemate, was trying to
drum up the nine votes needed to end
the logjam so he could present the
proposal as a formal compromise early
next week.
THERE WAS NO immediate indica-
tion, however, that the Washington
Democrat had-yet mustered the needed

support, although he was believed to be
within a vote or two of that goal.
Sources close to the ongoing Senate
energy negotiations said that if this pro-
posal doesn't pass there's a good chan-
ce nothing will.
Differences among the 17 Senate
negotiators remain so wide "I still think
it's possible we may not get a bill," said
Energy Committee Chief Counsel Mike
Harvey, who drafted the proposed com-
promise at Jackson's behest.
program has been stalled because of an
inability of senators on the House-Sen-

ate energy conference committee to
settle their own differences on. deregu-
lation of natural gas.
The energy bill approved by the
Senate would deregulate newly pro-
duced gas after two years, but critics
claimed the Senate bill would cost con-
sumers $70 billion more in gas bills
through 1985 above the some $20 billion
the administration measure would cost.
The Jackson proposal was described
in an accompanying memorandum as a
"bottom-line position," indicating that
is as far as Jackson is willing to go to
appease forces favoring deregulation.

Other details provided by witnesses
described "Chuchunaa" as barefooted,
shaggy-haired, "with a face as big as
that of a human being, only very dark.
His small forehead protruded above the
eyes, like a peaked cap," Tass said.
It added that "he ran away from
people very quickly, leaping."
TASS QUOTED a senior staff mem-

ber of the Yakutia institute, Semyon
Nikolayev, as saying: "Almost all wit-
nesses speak about Chuchunaa as a
reality, without the fantastic details so
usual for legends."
The scientist offered this hypothesis
as a possible explanation for the
creature's existence:

"AT SOME PERIOD, when on
Yakutia's territory some groups of the
ancient population were ousted by
others, part of the aborgines left for
areas with different access from the.
outside. A suitable place for them, in
this case, would have been the upper
reaches of the Yana and Indigirka
rivers and their tributaries."

Auto accident
An 18-year-old University student was struck by a car and taken to
University Hospital Thurs. night. Police said Ethan Schwartz was
walking down E. University when he was hit by a car driven by 43-
year-old Charles Rawlings. According to police, Rawlings said he hit
Schwartz because he swerved to avoid hitting an oncoming car. But
witnesses at the scene said they saw no other car. Schwartz was taken
by ambulance to University hospital and released yesterday morning.
On the outside...
Oh, well. Today will clearly be unclear because of increasingly
cloudy skies during the day and a chance of light snow in the afternoon.
High today will be 26, with a low of 16. More light snow and more cloudy
skies tonight. Expect snow to pile up to about 2 inches. Sunday will be
as unclear as today, but at least the snow will end, and we'll have a
high of 20 and low of 9.
