Metal Polit ‘ion Almost All from Cars, Tests Find FRANKFURT.    West (»er many (AP) — Tests conducted during last year's ban on Sunday driving in Frankfurt show that practically all metal particles polluting urban air come from cars, 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 Ia*ad and iron concentrations in the* air dropped to almost zero compared with normal Sundays. The level of carbon monoxide, however, dropped only 50 percent "The study demonstrates convincingly that the automobile is practically the only source for certain pollutants,’’ said Dr J. Mueller of Frankfurt university's Institute for Metereoiogy and Geophysics. But he added that the studies 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 cleaner air in towns, we have to reduce the motorcar sources," ON THIS DATE in 1973 the founding father of modern Israel.
