Timothy Treadwell, the avowed bear man of the Alaska wilderness, lived poor and little known for most of his 46 years despite a desire for the spotlight of celebrity. He claimed to have led a life of drugs, brawls and booze until, in the late 1980s, he found his way to the grizzlies, most recently in Katmai National Park and Preserve on the Alaska Peninsula about 300 miles southwest of Anchorage. His cause: to save them from hunters and poachers who apparently didn't exist.

In "Languages on the Brink of Extinction" (April 3), you bemoan the fact that half the world's 6,000 languages are dying. A University of Alaska linguist says that only 600 languages are considered safe. I say why even 600? Why not 60 or six? Why not one? Since God created us as one, why don't we act like it? One language would be a start. I don't care which one. LEE J. MAAT Woodland Hills

The North Pacific "Ring of Fire" has a new member: a previously unknown undersea volcano in Alaska's Aleutian Islands. Scientists this summer mapped the cone-shaped volcano, which rises beneath the waters near Amchitka Pass. The volcano rises 1,903 feet above the sea floor and is less than 377 feet from the water's surface, said researchers with the University of Alaska at Fairbanks and the National Marine Fisheries Service.
