SAN FRANCISCO (UPI) - Is
it Bigfoot or some guy in a
motheaten, baggy gorilla suit?
The elusive Bigfoot, legend-
ary ape - man of the Pacific
Northwest, was sighted and
photographed, according to a
group of professional creature
Actually, they say their photo-
graph is of "Son of Bigfoot," a
hairy teen-age monster with sil-
ver-gray fur and a mane rising
like a Roman soldier's plume
from the nape of his neck to the Wash." They won't be more spe-
top of his head. cific because, "It'd be like a Big-
foot convention around there'"
THAT'S what appears in the

The last Bigfoot phot6 was tak-
en in 1967.
The location, say Tom Bis-
cari and Gene Findley is "some-
where northeast of Spokane,
THEY are right about that.
The hunt for Bigfoot is a growing
hobby for weekenders and has
become a full-time occuption for
a handful of adventurers.
Indian stories started it all.
They told of eight-foot monsters
rumbling around isolated areas
of forests and jagged cb.

HIGH POINT of the tours is
Castle Dracula, 800 feet above a
stream running th rotgh the Car-
pathian Motnt-ins 1ol miles
north of Bucharest.
It was built by a 15th century

The Romanian tourist organi-
zation has pushed the tours em-
phasizing Draculean horrors,
despite the fact that they are
casting slurs on a national hero.
ROMANIAN HEROS are judg-
ed primarily on how well they
fought against the Turks. Vlad
was one of the best.
When two Turkish emissaries
came to his court demanding tri-
bute they failed to remove their
turbans saying it was not their
custom. "Let's make that perma-
nent," Vlad is reported to have
said. His soldiers nailed the tur-
bans to the Turks' heads.
Vlad spent two years rampag-
ing through the Danube Valley
defying the empire - building
Turks. Mohammed It, conqueror
of Constantinole set out in
1462 with 250,000 troops to take
revenge. When the Turkish sul-
tan arrived at Tirgoviste, Vlad's
capital, he got a shock.
VLAD had performed his spe-
cialty on thousands of prisoners
and Tirgoviste was ringed with
tall, shrp stakes, each one deco-
rated with an impaled Turk.
The castle was identified as
Vlad's in 1969 b two Dracula
scholars, Profs. Raymond Mc-
Nally and Radu Florescu of Bos-
The tours started last year.
THEY INCLUDE visits to Drac-
ula's birthplace, capital, castle
and grave as well as to Brasov.
There on St. Bartholomew's Day,
according to chronicles of 1460,
Vad ate lunch outdoors sur-
rounded by a forest of stakesson
which he had skewered rebel-
lious German burghers of the
