THE WELL. CHILD Housewife Has Role In Water Pollution By WAYNE G. BRANDSTADT. Written for Newspaper Entcrprim Ann. Much has been written on the increasing menace of water pollution but very little on what the average housewife can do about it. Since household deter- gents are an Important source of pollution, a great deal of at- tention has been focussed on ways of decreasing their harm- ful effects. About four years ago the alkyl benzene sulfonate in detergents was replaced by linear alkylate sulfonate. This substitution greatly reduced the amount of foaming in sewage. Now several local organiza- tions have launched campaigns urging housewives to replace detergents high in phosphate with others of low-phosphate content. Studies have shown be- yond a doubt that phosphates, an important ingredient of fer- tilizers, stimulate the growth of algae, a low form of plant life, ;o the detriment of fish and other forms of aquatic animal jfe. This is because, as the dead algae decompose the wa- ter loses its dissolved oxygen. Much of the blame for the kill- ing of Lake Erie stems from this source. Lists showing the phosphate content of various brands of de- tergent are available from Northwestern for Better Environment, Nortl western University, Evanston 111. 60201 or from ECO Bulli tin, Rodale Press, Emmaus Pa. 18049.

Approaching Hot Weather Haunts U.S. Utilities Firms NEW YORK the hot weather days approaching many United States utilitie companies are haunted by th memory of last summer's elee trie power shortages and the great blackout of 1965 in South em Ontario' and Quebec an the Northeastern U.S. Can they happen again? A recent survey for the fed eral administration listed po ;ential trouble spots as New York City, Chicago, St. Louis and Minneapolis-St. Paul. Replying to a later Assoc ated Press survey, large power companies said they were no expecting major problems though New York and Minnea polis-St. Paul forecast the pos- sibility. This the federa report said, "the entire eastern seaboard, except for New Eng and and Florida, will face ight power-capacity problem even if normal summef tern leratures prevail, fuel supplies are adequate and all of the sy stem capacity performs as :cheduled." Insufficient generating capac ty was the main reason for concern in the East, the re- port said, where air condition ers abound. New York City's Consoli [ated Edison said it might have to take power conservative measures under conditions ol extremely heavy usage. VARN OF BROWNOUTS In Minneapolis, utility orfi- ials warned of possible 'brownout s" or selective jower reductions, this summer. Ewald, chairman of North- rn States Power Co., said il was a "clear and present dan- er" of hazardous power short- ges. GOREN BY CHARLES H. GOREN K lin: ty TW Trltml Neither vulnerable. East deila.

At one table, he pvt up the king and continued with the ace, declarer ruffing with the seven of hearts. The dummy was entered with the ace of spades to lead a trump. East played tha five, South the ten and West was in with the king. Tha club return was ruffed with the. eight of hearts and declarer led the queen of trumps. East played tha aca and returned a diamond, South was in to drtw the lut trump with the jack and claimed'the balance with good diamonds. He lost two hearts and one club. At the other table, East took a different course after winning the original cluh lead. He reasoned on the basis of South'] original overt call in diamonds, that the latter probably held six moods and five hearts. peated diamond leads might therefore put West in position to overruff the dummy, if ha had a spot la hearts to top North's six. At trick two, East to a diamond, and North wu in with the ten to lead a trump. South's ten wu taken by West's king and the latter returned a second diamond. East won the next heart lead with the king and led a third diamond. West scored the) setting trick by ruffing ia with the oue ot hearts. One problem for some power companies may be the dwin- dling number of U.S. coal mines. Coal is used to produce electricity in many areas. However, the Northeast Power Co-ordinating Council, formed after the 1965 blackout, said coal shortages .will have minimum impact on the opera- tions of its members in New England, New York and On- tario because of stockpiling and alternate fuel supplies. The 1965 blackout occur- red Nov. 9 after transmission lines failed from an Ontario generation station, diverting current to other lines on the northeast interconnection. These succumbed in sequence to the increased load and an es- relays, circuit breakers transmission facilities to Umated people plunged into darkness as suit. Since then, coundl members have installed specially de- signed and co-ordinated protec- and _______ help circumvent the possibility of another blackout in the area The New York power popl made up of seven private utili- ties, and the New 'York Power Authority, has set up a multi- million-dollar trouble-shooting centre in Schenectady, N.Y. Technicians at the centre art in constant tele phone contact with utilities throughout the Northeast and Canada, co-ordi- nating activities regarding mal- functions and their likelihood." New Evidence Produced On Mass Seal Killings LONDON (CP) The Sim day Telegraph says that evidence of the mass slaughte of seals on a scale far exceed ing that which raised a publi outcry in the Gulf of St. Law rence has been produced."

Mr. Diefenbaker termed the idea "totally impractical" a brief news conference Monday at Winnipeg airport. He was on his way from Saskatoon to Ot- tawa. 'I would like you to tell me about any other govemmeO that gave up its rights of gov- ernment ta order to trans- fer them to some other institu- tion." Mr. Diefenbaker added a central government would be ;oo far removed from the peo- ple. Mr. Diefenbaker also criti- cized the federal government or the present postal situation. "The government has been so weak, indeed, so unjust in its attitude that the workers have been driven to do something."
