TOO MUCH HEAT TORRINGTON, Wyo. (AP) — The Torrington fire department recently doused a fire in — a camper trailer parked on a Torrington street, confining damage to a burned spot on the roof. The fire chief said a glass bottle of butane gas had been overfilled and left in the camper. When the sun got around to the 1 West, the sun's rays overheated ! the bottle and caused a pop-off ,; valve to open. The butane gas I seeped to a vent of a wall heater \ and was ignited. OLD BOATS litter the beach at Hafnarfjordur. Iceland, where firctar Oddsson photographed this scene. UP A TREE as to what to wear, Terri "Danny" Howard went daydreaming at the International Bazaar in Freeport on Grand Bahama Island. "Danny," an American teen-ager who lives on the island, must have found some enchantment at the bazaar, where the shops are built in the mode of the country they represent, for her costume "magically" changed to suit the surroundings. At top left, "Danny" is seen in a Norwegian dress and then a sari, top right. Tired of all that cover, she wandered into the French quarter where she blossomed out in a provocative bikini outfit which she quickly switched for a mini-torero getup in the Spanish section. Still undecided, "Danny" ended up in an Indian midi-shift, sitting on the steps in the Calcutta ar«*a. Timely Quotes The federal government should not become the employer of the last resort.
