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.

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.
