stacks of a West Side factory daily Gagging fumes and odors come from a neighboring turer while further north a grain elevator lays dust on parked cars by night All have been reported to an alderman local newspaper City hall or directly to the Air Pollution Control department Yet the smoke fumes and grain dust The housewife whose dow sills bear a daily load of soot and the fellow who es his car one day and finds it needs it again the next morning are losing their patience It's all they claim certain that their alderman the air pollution department and cal newspaper could stop the smoke and dust if they wanted to get tough A punitive policy of tickets fines and court suits was the only course to follow for a time after the 1959 air pollution nance was passed And it is still used But to get at the big trial polluters who contribute the most to cluttering up our atmosphere the approach has to be toward solving the simply punishing the offenders Since 1963 a special branch of the Air Foliation Control department has been ling the mammoth problem of devising effective pollution control devices for these com- panies Fifty firms are in various stages of work under this industrial evaluation program The big stick they wield is to fine sue or in extreme cases obtain court orders to close down a operation If S But the policy of this gram headed by Peter cio assistant director of neering services is to walk toward the goal of ting effective air pollution con- trol devices on every smoke stack of every manufacturing firm in the city It's a long road one that can take from a year up to the 14 years estimated to put the lid on the worst of the plants Four years ago the gram began with a survey of every plant in ther city with air pollution engineers sonally checking the tion methods and habits of each A detailed outline of these is now on file at the engineering services offices 221 N LaSalle available for quick reference whenever a complaint comes in and when the staff initiates the gram with each company Industry has been divided into types of product both to win cooperation of the al companies and to avoid ing unfair burdens on a single company within one field V T For example explained shall Monarch engineer of evaluation roasting and printing nies were taken on as a whole j in the early years of the gram Work with this field is pretty much completed

this day the sounding of the ram's horn the Shofar Whoever has once heard during the New Year service the shrill notes of this oldest of wind instruments will never forget continued Dr Lehrfield and the meaning of the ceremony to worshippers who listen to these notes in emn awe is as stirring as the sounds themselves Since days immemorial ed the rabbi of the ram's horn on the New Year has been interpreted in rael as the clarion call to re- and spiritual renewal Awake ye Be not of those who miss realities in their hunt after shaws er your deeds purify your heart There is an Eye that seeth all things there is an Ear that heareth all things There is a heavenly Judge with whom there is no ness nor forgetfulness nor re- spect of persons On the High Festivals the Jew thinks not only of self pointed out Rabbi field but of peace and blessedness for all mankind In the most ancient and emn part of the services both of the New Year and of the Day of Atonement he prays to God to hasten the
