Mr. Passmore did, however, express surprise that levels of mercury found in western ducks were as liigh as they were.

Durante, now 70 but still doing two shows a night, was stretched out on a couch in his dressing room at the Desert Inn Hotel on the Las Vegas Strip one night this week.

And it was all the same when Durante shoved a battered felt hat onto his head, walked into the wings and paused as the applause swelled to greet him. The house was full, as it had been every night since he opened. Young at Heart, Durante sang as he clowned with six beautiful dancers. The girls come and go, but dancers have been part of his act for decades. Durante sat at the piano. Fingers still nimble, he pla3red and sang, Hey Look Me Over.

As a result, duck hunting will continue as usual. Tests of ducks taken from Lake St. Clair, the Ottawa and St. Lawrence rivers and in New Brunswick and Nova Scotia showed the average level of contamination was below .5 parts per million. While no safe limits have been established for game birds used as human food, the maximum for fish is .5 parts per million. Blue- and green-wing leal, mallards and black ducks were among the commonly-hunted species tested. The federal service reported Monday that testing of ducks in western Canada indicated similar levels of mercury con-lamination. REMOTE AREAS SAFE R. C. Passmore, executive director of the Ottawa based Canadian Wildlife Federation, attributed Ihe low levels of contamination to the remoteness of duck breeding areas from sources of mercury pollution. .Insect-eating ducklings don't often encounter mercury-contaminated insects, he federal cabinet aligmcnl following Prime Minister Tru-deau's announcement ol changes: Shifts in Portfolio Donald S.

M. Solandt, chairman of the Science Council of Canada, says a new transportation system using short-takeoff-and-landing aircraft will be a co-operative venture with the United States. He made ths comment after the ccuncil delivered to the federal government a study which proposes that government industry and universities work to develop a new aircraft and all the associated ground installations.

Studies of such a system have been going on within the government.
