ACCUSED HELL'S ANGELS Loren Scott, Donald "Skeels" Picard Heath names Barber of Exchequer Mercury in Merrimack but not at dangerous level By FRANZ SCHOtZ Sun Washington Bureau WASHINGTON-From samples "taken just above the U.S. Geological Survey has found traces of mercury in the Merrimack River, but not in large enough quantities to pose health problems. In a telegram to Gov. Francis Sargent, Secie- tary of the Interior Walter Hickel last week said the Federal Water Quality Administration "suspected" mercury pollution in certain Bay State waterways. The FWQA, U.S. Geological Survey and the Food and Drug Administration FDA are all currently taking samplings of Massachusetts waterways for possible mercury pollution. The FWQA reportedly has found a dye com- pany pouring a potentially dangerous amount of mercury pollution into the Taunton River. As a result, the State Department of Natural Re- sources has asked the company to shut down until it can correct the situation. AS FOR mercury pollution in the Merrimack, an official of the U.S. Geological Survey said a sample was taken just above Lowell and the results showed 1.2 parts of mercury pollution to one billion gallons of water. This represents one pound of mercury in every 120 million gal- lons of water. He noted that this is well within the limits considered safe by the FDA. The FDA recog- nizes .5 parts or more per million gallons as hazardous. The official would not specify the exact lo- Expect Jordan to accept U.S. peace proposal By United Press Internationa! Jordan is expected to announce within 24 hours its acceptance of the U.S. plan for indirect Middle East peace talks, diplomatic sources said in Beirut today. The Jordanian cabinet met for four hours late Friday to consider the proposal calling for a three-month Arab-Israeli cease-fire' followed by negotiations through U.N. mediator Gunnar V. Jarring. Fighting flared during the night on the Is- raeli-Jordan frontier, where Tel Aviv said its troops killed two Arab guerrilla inillrators. The guerrilla command in Egypt has assailed the U. S. plan and vowed to ignore it and keep fighting. Jordan and Egypt were the only two front- line Arab nations to receive the plan. Cairo ac- cepted it but President Gamal Abdel Nasser as- serted Friday he has "absolutely no hope" for a political settlement. cation where the sample was taken, except that it was just above Lowell. The location was chosen, he said, because the sampler thought that if mercury pollution did exist it would show up in this location. The U.S. Geological Survey official indicated that more samples would be taken on the Merri- mack as well as other streams in the river's basin as the U.S. Geological Survey together with the FWQA s conducting a nationwide search for mercury contamination.
