Search continues for man
LANGTRY, TEXAS (AP>—Park rang-
ers and search dogs poked through rocks
Monday in hopes of unearthing the body
of a man buried two days before when a
canyon wall came crashing down at the
Amistad National Recreation Area.
The head of the search party called
Edgar Joe Dorroh's chances of survival
"We're convinced he was crushed by
the rocks, and there's a good possibility
he was killed immediately when the rocks
hit him," said Chief Park Ranger Eldon
The isolated area surrounding the land-
slide can be reached only by boat. Mem-
bers of the search party suspended them-
selves over the mass of shifting rocks to
avoid being swept away, the ranger said.
"It's kind of like being out on a tight-
rope while looking for a needle in the
haystack," he said.
Don Goldman, assistant superintend-
ent of the park, said the search efforts
were "quite dangerous."
"That's one of our main concerns now,
that nobody else gets hurt," Goldman
said."We can reach them by radio, but
we don't even want to distract them."
The two dogs were brought in early
Monday from the Midland Police Depart-
ment after concentrated rescue efforts
failed Saturday and Sunday, Kohlman

By MARY LYNN MAYER

ics faculty will speak about "The
Economics of Love and the Dangers
of Romantic Error" at Denton's End
of the Month Club meeting 6 p.m.
Jan. 31 at the Woman's Club Build-
ing at 610 Oakland St.
"It's a lecture 1 worked up to en-
courage freshman to understand that
economics is relative to life," Armey
He added that "the two most impor-
tant choices facing young people at
universities are love relationships and
Armey said he will discuss the rudi-
ments of the choice theory and the
dangers of romance distorting choices.
"It gives a different perspective to
love," he added.
Dr. Hugh Ayer, associate dean of
the College of Arts and Sciences and
End of the Month Club member, said
the club, which meets on i le last day
of every month, was originated by Dr.
Jim Pearson of the history faculty.
"It is sponsored by a group of NT
and TWU faculty people but is not
affiliated with the universties," Ayer
Ayer said the club has no rules,
bylaws or dues. The meetings consist
of conversation among members, din-
ner and a lecture. There is a charge
for the dinner, "it's a very informal
activity," he said.
The club manager chooses speak-
ers for the club in response to sug-
gestions, Ayer said. The club is cur-
rently managed by Dr. Tom Preston,
dean of the College of Arts and Sci-

Bats invade junior high gym
LAKE CITY, Fla. (AP)—Hundreds of
bats have invaded a junior high school
gymnasium, perching on girders and
chattering inside the walls, and up to 40
percent may be rabid, a health official
"We have already determined tiiere are
rabies in die colonies," said Steve Knight,
environmental health director for Colum-
The gym at Lake City Junior High
School was closed Thursday.
"If the dogs can pinpoint the location,
we'll have a better chance of determin-
ing if we can even get the body out of
there," he said.
Dorroh and his companion, Colleen K.
Stephens of San Antonio, entered the park
before noon Saturday by boating up the
Rio Grande. They left the craft to inspect
some abandoned railroad tunnels,
Stephens told investigators that she
noticed rocks beginning to fall after
Dorroh, a mechanical engineer at Kelly
Air Force Base, started climbing toward
"She looked back and saw him being
swept away by the hundreds of tons of
rocks that broke loose." Kohlman said.
Stephens, who was not injured, returned
by boat to warn park personnel, he said.
Kohlman said anything could have set
off the landslide.
"Those rocks have been there for a
100 years and I guess it was time for
them to go," he said. "Now. the whole
area seems like a pile of rocks."
"The slide resulted in a critical angle
slope and anytime you touch one rock,
the others move and slide some more."
the ranger said,
"Only one person can be out searching
at one time and the rocks have to be lifted
by hand and thrown out of the way."
