HONG KONG (neuter) A massive government effort to clean up this British colony will be launched later tins year with an effort lo "shame a thoughl- Jcss, careless population into better habits." Urban Coun. II, M. G. Fors- gatc, vice-chairman of Die cam- paign which will start in Nov- ember, is preparing new legisla- tion which, while he will not disclose details now, is believed to include stiff penalties for lit- tering. Forsgato disagrees with peo- ple who claim it will he impossi- ble to change a society's alti- tude to its environment, ilo points to the success of a "Keep Singapore C 1 e a n" campaign launched in 19fi8 and says that, although Hong Kong cannot hope to match this overnight, with careful planning, a .sus- tained and co-ordinated cam- paign would successful. Most Hong Kong residents, however, agree that no amount ol planning can ensure tho suc- cess of the campaign unless tougher ant i-li tiering I a ws a re passed and enforcement of such laws strengthened, As o n c resdient wrote In a recent letter to the South China Morning Post: 'The only reason that the anli-HUcring law works Singapore is not because of the deep feeling of concern by the citizens there but because the well-enforced and non-cor- ruptible law strikes them in the most sensitive and sincere area of Ihc human pocket Girls fined for display of nudism LONDON (Router) Five girls who pranced nude near the official residence of Prime Ministcr I leatli Satunlay were fined tho equivalent of ?58 each when they appeared in court here. The girls, who had Iwcn pub- licizing a rock festival, plead- ed guilty to using insulting havior wilh intent to provoke a broach of the peace. A police inspector said the girls jumped out of a bus at the foot of Downing Street and began pushing leaflet about the festival into the hands of passers-by. Taking the same cue, the1 newspaper Star said: "If we wanl clean .streets, a clean countryside and fresh flowing streams, the polluters must be forced into line if, inevitably, persiuision fails." It added that tough laws are necessary to make people heed elementary standard's of cleanli- ness Jiong Kong has several anti- littering laws at present, fr't some urban experts say they are Ill-defined and the penalties involved are lax. Hector Ross, a senior execu- tive officer of the urban council, .says the main difficulty in en- forcing any anli-liUering law is lack of personnel, 'flic colony now has only four anti-litter squads comprising 32 men. Ross says that when the cam- paign is launched the three-man anti-litter .squads will be raised lo 50. In addition it is also hoped to get area volunteers under a plan now being devel- oped for community develop- ment. "We must start running now in order to catch says Forsgale, because the daily cost of curbing pollution is mounting Readily. INTRODUCE ZIP PARTS (AP) France has begun a massive publicity cam paign to introduce its own five figure code system for mai! ing addresses, Hy JIM J'OMNG Alta. (CI'l Canada's large .stocks of mus- tard gas, a vicious chemical weapon brewed during the Second Wjr, may he destroyed soon, The Defence Research Es- tablishment has started a to be com- pleted by the deter- mine the feasibility of gelling rid of the brown liquid. About 700 tons of mustard gas have been stored in lead- incd concrete vaults here since the war ended 27 years ago. No mustard gas was used by any of the combat- ants in the la.sL war. Dr. Bill Stewart, director of the establishment's research wing, says it could be burned, but the problem is to ensure it's done cleanly and safely. Mustard has no rela- tion to what you put on a hot developed in Ger- many during the First World War. It's absorbed by the skin and causes severe inflamma- tion and blisters. Its colorless an onion smol 1 --destroy lung tissue. A drop in the eye can blind- ness. DROPPED INTO SKA Dr. Stewart says stocks of mustard have disposed of by other countries "in ways which probably would be un- acceptable today." "They dropped Ihcm inlo the North Sea or they :-et lire- to them in pits and let them smoke. We hope to do better." The problem 5s how to get the gas out of the vaults with- out having workers handle it. stocks have been decom- posing over the years, but are potent enough to rjo serious harm. Dr. Stewart says the safest approach might be lo build a disposal plant near the vaults and pump out the gas. The idea of disposing of the gas resulted from Ihc Defence Research Board's success in burning stocks of DDT, the insecticide banned about years agu, A thermal destructor has been built and is burning up gallons of DDT in ker- osene which the department of national defence had on ham! when the ban came into effect. USKS JIICI1 HEAT The destructor is a furnace which destroys the DDT at degrees Fahrenheit, The only harmful byproduct, hy- drochloric acid, is washed out of the smoke and neutralized in lagoons. Tests have shown that the destructor is putting no DDT residue or hydrochloric acid into the atmosphere. The gallons of DDT arc expected to be gone some lime this summer, says Dr. Stewart. Other stocks are ex- pected to be shipped here by the department of the environ- ment. Dr. Stewart says the same plant can't be used for burn- ing mustard gas, mainly be- cause it's located too far from the vaults. "It's probably easier to burn mustard. You can fire it with a match. But, we'd need a plant in a safer location." AGAINST I1UKMNG C. R. Iverson, director-gen- eral of the research establish- ment, says the cost, effort and safety factors are arguments against burning the mustard gas. "We've convinced ourselves that we can do H in a pollu- tion-free he says. "As a taxpayer, T say why so much money? It13 saEe where it is, why destroy it? "As a Canadian citizen, I .iy why keep it? It would be nice to say we've got rid of the last chemical agent.1' Mr. Iver.son says it's costing about 25 cents a gallon to s'.roy the DDT.....about half of the original cost per gallon. The rlecisirm on what Is rlone with the mustard gas won't be mude here, but Mr, Iver.son guesses that his sta- tion will be directed to hum it. A.s director-general of tha establishment he wants it de- stroyed. "There are pressure groups who have this and relate it lo our work. We'd like to wave a magic wand ami have it turn into a non- tixic substance." today's FUNNY ON THE SIDELINES liana Goren, lofl, Miss Israel, and Grace Wright, Miss Jam- aica pay no aMcnllon to largo TV cameras boing- moved into now positions during Miss Universe contest rehearsal, bcinp, hold in Dorado, Puerto Rico.
