Hong Kong has not returned refugees since IfM>2, when 62.000 were sent back across the border by rail and trucks in a single month.  The government of this British colony is apparently again trying to stem the influx of refugees into the already badly overcrowded city of four and a-half million.

Chamber Warns About Holiday "Gyp Schemes"  The business consumers bureau of the Chamber of Commerce has issued a warning on so-called “gyp artists” that | seem to flourish during the holiday shopping season.  John Stock, chairman of the bureau, said there are several schemes that crop up each year.  He mentioned the following:  Unordered merchandise, often sent in the name of an unknown charity or as an outright commercial venture.  Telephone or house-to-house appeals from an unknown charitable organization for funds, clothing, food or fuel.  Attempts to collect for a C O D package for a neighbor the deliverer claims is not at home.  So-called bargain offers in  magazines for cosmetics falsely sold under an established brand name or advertised as a brand name with a different label.  Stock also advised that delivery time for gifts ordered from magazines generally is at least j four weeks. “Keeping this in mind will prevent disappoint-1 ments,” he commented.  “Christmas purchases,” he' noted, “should be made in the same manner as ordinary purchases: Buy from established and reliable firms, examine the purchases, understand the warranty and exchange provisions and beware of bargains that seem too good to be true.”  12:30 arn.!the loot were 185 cartons of trolled substance and was fined--  cigarets and some meat and $100 and given a five-day jail    20 YEARS AGO  — (beer.    sentence with credit given for ident of the United Steelworkers no additional postage by mark-  The DX service station was time served.    Union predicted that the Cloning out the “service temporarily  broken into, but first reports in- He was charged with posses- and AFL would merge within a suspended” endorsement on the dicated nothing was stolen. jsion of LSD or acid Sept. 28. year.    envelopes.
