Pipeline Road Off Limits

"No Hunting" signs have been
posted in the Pipeline Road area
by order of the Governor as a pro-
tection for endangered species of
birds and animals that inhabit that
The land along the Pipeline
Road is an area of relatively un-
disturbed tropical lowland wet
forest which contains some 239

species of birds not found outside
of this area. In addition, numerous
species of mammals and reptiles
inhabiting the forest are threatened
with extinction because of the in-
creased hunting, not only by li-
censed hunters but by illegal night
hunting and hunting with packs of
dogs which has been reported. As
a result of this activity, there has

for Hunting
been an extreme reduction in the
number of breeding animals and
young of each species to the point
where their existence is threatened.
There will be intensive surveil-
lance of the no hunting area by

Paternalism Denies Dignity To Handicapped I Amador Officers' Club

Paternalism is one of the oldest

promoting their own employment.

insidious effects that can result.
A paternalistic attitude denies dig-
nity to its recipient, and without
dignity, a handicapped person
cannot be the master of his own

Driver, and one that hasn't shown
locally yet, Fingers, with Jim
Brown. She can also be recognized
in television commercials for Coca-
Cola, Prudential Life Insurance,
and as the Thom McAnn Shoes girl
on TV and in posters. Largo aver-
ages about one commercial per
week and has 50 to her credit so
far, with as many as four running
at one time. She has done indus-
trial films for companies such as
Revlon and in between acting jobs
accepts some modeling assignments.
The daughter of Curundu Junior
High School music teacher Wallace
Woodruff and his wife Maxine,
Largo has been acting in commu-
nity and school productions since
she was 9. She also studied dancing
from local instructors, which stood
her in good stead in New York.
It was while she was tap dancing
with a troupe which performed
twice at Carnegie Hall that Largo
and four other dancers were
spotted by Sammy Davis, Jr., and
asked to dance with him on tele-
vision. From that point on, she says,
the offers have kept on coming.
Largo is up for parts in two
movies this year and has the lead
in a play set in the post-Civil War
era that will tour nationally and
come back to Broadway. While she
is usually cast as "sweet sixteen,"
Largo says she is gradually be-
ginning to be allowed to "grow up."
Largo went to New York without
knowing anyone and insists that
she's been "lucky all the way." But
she believes that in order to succeed
in acting "You have to love it. You
can't go after it for fame or money
because it's not steady enough. You
just have to hope you're what
they're looking for."
Largo apparently is.

Progress means struggle, sacrifice
and ceaseless effort.
