stalks San Antonio aftvr
Police Ihrow more manpower to
day into the search for a myste
rious marksman who shot and se
riously wounded his seventh vic
tim Friday night. They said it
may be the work of a madman.
Iti.dy Casas, 16, crumpled to the
sidewalk with a bullet in his side.
It was fired from a passing car.
He was able to tell police before
an ambulance arrived that he
heard a shot as a darkened sedan
raced past him, then felt a pain
in his right side.
Casas, son of Mr. and Mrs. Ar
thur J. Casas, is the mysterious
gunman's second victim who is in
serious condition. The other five
cscaiie dwith minor wounds.
The shootings have been going
on for three weeks.
Most have been on city streets
with a .22 caliber pistol or rifle.
But in one instance, a deputy
sheriff narrowly escaped death
when a shotgun blast shattered a
picture window while he sat in
his living room.
Police said the gunman may be
a good marksman who deliberate
ly avoids killing his targets.

THE GIRLS WERE ROBBED
Congressmen Modestly Admit
They Won The Spelling Tilt
By FRANK ELEAZER
UPI Staff Writer
WASHINGTON it'Pli Three
congressmen met three school
girls in a spelling match and
modestly admitted afterwards that
the school girls had tost.
This is to file a minority report.
The girls were robbed.
The eighth-graders flew in from
California to take on the lawmak
ers after clobbering directors of
the Santa Rosa Chamber of Com
merce. The directors reportedly
had made the mistake of com
plaining that kids these days are
not learning to spell like they
This proved to be true, and
thank goodness for that. Those
businessmen apparently couldn't
spell fire sale.
To ease their embarrassment,
they sic'ed their victors on Con
gress. They figured no doubt that

lative sacrifice to the girl spelling
champs. The girls got their start
by winning a three-county bee
conducted by the Santa Rosa
Press Democrat in Miller's con
grejsional district. Miller couldn't
very well say no. Anyway, yes is
one word every congressman
learns to spell right away.
Found Some Exports
Miller looked around for support
and came up with a couple of ob
vious experts, Reps. Jeffery Co
lleton ID-Calif. I, a former Ful
bright scholar at Oxford, and Ken
Hechler (D-W.Va.), a Ph.D., and
former college professor who
helped write speeches for Adlai
The girls arrived for the con
test unshaken and early. Miller
was there, too, but his two ex
perts were nowhere to be seen.
They hurried in minutes late, and
the word was they had been stud
ying. From the outcome, it would be
hard to say what.
The photdgraphers got things
moving by asking the girls where
they were from, and to spell it.
Mary McFarling, 14, said her
honie is Ukiah. Carolyn Storts, 14.
said she comes from Gualala.
Valerie Turner, 13. gave her town
The congressmen saw right
then, I gness, that these girls
would be hard to beat.
The rules were read, and the

all decisions would be by majority
The photogs said please run
through some warmups while they
shot the pictures. Somebody of
fered the word Butler, as in Paul,
which Miller promptly spelled
"botch," in an obvious effort to
get the teenagers confused.
Then they got down to the con
test. Mary "handled slavery, bachelor,
grotesque, and chandelier without
even trying. Valerie ran through

and embroidery. Carolyn got

Cohelan handled bicycle and

without getting close.
Hechler eased through availa

her eyes to the sky, tried C for a

Miller collapsed under tonsillec

tercentenary. Mary drew fictitious
which she spelled like that.
She was the only one in the
room who seemed shocked when
the judges said she was wrong.
The official list, it was noted,
spelled it ficticious.
So Hechler was proclaimed win

fallen. And George Coffey, the
UPI West Coast reporter, raced
off to file the results to I'kioh,
