By CY FOX BRUSSELS A' greater use of waste mate- rials to produce new stocks of paper has been urged in Bel- a country which lags behind other member states of the European Common Market in this respect despite sharing similar problems of paper supply. The Belgians recently heard some cautionary words on pa- per supplies from Edmond a specialist on in- dustrial affairs at the Com- mon Market's headquarters here. of the exploitation of reserves in Scandi- navia for the most part has reached its Fassotte said. the the sources we can envisage are Eastern Africa and South America. these the re- serves are enormous but still they must be exploited eco- according to isn't foreseeable in the decade ahead to an extent likely to meet the growth in our de- Eassotte made his remarks at a round-table discussion in Brussels on the oi waste paper. Greater use of waste paper urged He said of the 28 mil- lion tons of paper consumed in 1970 by the nine current members of the Common production deriving from their own forests repre- sented only 18.4 per cent of the total. Another 19.6 per cent was based on the recycling of old paper. But the proportion of Bel- gian consumption drawn from this source was no more than 14 per cent in 1970. The oil crisis and last sum- mer's spectacular distortions of the world grain market by soaring prices have made Eu- ropeans jittery about their supplies of raw materials. In the paper field. Britain has been particularly affected by newsprint shortages. The predictable hope of West Europeans is to see themselves becoming some- what less dependent on over- seas suppliers of raw mate- rials. For this reason and also be- cause of worry about pollu- the maximum use of re- cycled waste paper is called for by some viewed more skeptically by in- dustry and other sources. It is for that recycling of waste paper has definite limitations. Even the economical Japa- nese are unable to recover more than 35 per cent of their used paper for recycling. Yet the pressures for taking fullest advantage of waste pa- per are great. The comparatively small use made of this source in Belgium results from the na- ture of the paper industry here. The Belgian industry is highly specialized and concen- trates on quality papers that require fresh pulp. But rising paper costs are forcing even the Belgians to think again about the benefits of recycling. In officials super- vising city garbage collection have begun local experiments SITTERS SEEK RAlSt PORT Ont. Parents here may soon be paying more for baby sitters.

The results apparently in- dicated that such operations can be profitable for the city authorities who can sell the paper back to industry.

S.PHONE 328-1101 Inserted by Knights of Columbus Prohibition ended 40 years ago By RONALD CLARKE CHICAGO Cheering men stood 12 deep outside bars across the United States 40 years ago waiting to buy a drink. It was the end of prohibi- 13-year era that gave rise to the bootlegger and bathtub gin and made fa- mous the names of Al Bugs Dutch Schultz and other gang leaders who r fought to control the traffic in illegal booze. It was an era that Chicago still tries to forget. Ask a taxi driver to show you the city and he will take you to the site of the since torn where gangsters were murdered by a rival mob in the St. Valentine's Day mas- sacre of and to the Bio- graph still outside which gangster John Dillinger died in a hail of bul- lets fired by FBI agents.

Ratification by individual states was com- pleted on Dec. 5. The move gave rise to a great coupled with giant hangovers.
