Obituaries It's a Duck Gazette Photo by Ouono Crock 1 Saturday's snow was just right for snowmen and other snow sculpture. The Gazette had at least 35 calls about snowmen and sculpture of all shapes and sizes. Some of the snowmen were as tall, the callers said, as 10, 1 2 or 15 feet. Some wore colored clothes; one looked like a teddy bear; some were group projects. This large snow duck, constructed by Alan, 14, left; John, 1 1, on duck! and Ed Longer, 16, started life as a'snowman. One of the large snowballs fell off and when it land- ed it squashed into a shape that reminded them of a duck. The brothers decided a duck was what they would build. It's located in the backyard of their home at 2014 Ninth street SW. They are the sons of Mr. and Mrs. Arnold Longer. As many of the youngsters could also testify; the snow was just right for snowballs.

Metal Pollution Almost All from Cars, Tests Find __.Wcst Germany .Te'sis conducted last, year's The- Assi exclusively all the local r service, elated ly all metal particles polluting urban air come from according to a government-; sponsored study. The four car-less Sundays, ordered during the'Arab oil; boycott gave researchers their first chance to learn how. much of a city's' pollution actually comes from cars. Their finding: Lead and iron. concentrations in the air dropped to almost zero compared .with normal Sun- days. The level of carbon monoxide, however, dropped only 50 percent. "The study demonstrates convincingly that the automo- bile is practically the only source 'for certain said Dr. J. .Mueller of Frankfurt Insti- tute for Metereology and Geophysics. But he added that the stud- ies could not show how cars compare to industries' as polluters since the tests were 'conducted on Sundays. Mueller's, conclusion was simple: "In order.to get clean- er air in we have to reduce the motprcar sources."
