Or is (ure de ^ ^ ne (, e ,/ can a arena for the first time during the presidential election campaign last November in which President Charles de Gaulle was reeleeted. Political Question Leftist candidate Francois Mitterrand came out squarely in favor of scrapping the 1920 law. He was followed more cautiously by middle-of-the- roader Jean Lecanuel and extreme rightist Jean-Louis Tixier-Vignancour. The Gaullists did not commit themselves one way or the other. But early this year Lucien Neuwirth, a true-blue Gaullist deputy, slid a bill quietly into the national assembly calling for abolition of the 1920 anti-birth control law. He was backed by the Communists, Socialists and Radical Socialists so that, in effect, it became a non-party move. The bill moved almost unnoticed through its initial phases and Premier 'Georges Pompidous is reported to have indicated in June that the government saw no objection to its discussion or.' th« floor of the house. Then the bill ran into heavy opposition from strongly Catholic elements 'In the Gaullist Union for (he New Republic (UNR) parliamentary group. But Neuwirth was not put off. At the end of September he will present a preliminary report to the health committee of the assembly. Medical and religious experts will be heard, and Neuwirth says he hopes to present the bill in its final form to the full assembly at the end of October. He expresses optimism will be passed. Whether or not birth control is given legal sanction, most Frenchmen agree it is here to stay. Prosecutions under the 1920 law have in any event virtually ceased since 1958. • TL+ A*JMv«rfefeJ IJLAAAA*M» B>BJt«» /...*_ . , - AIR POLLUTION \B THREATENING THE HEALTH OF THE WHOLE WORLD// SMOKE UP OE«?

NEW YORK (DPI) -Sing that piece of clattering doggerel to its roaring 1880s tune, give it a rouser of a finish, and sociability, sensation, sex, silli- that's what the sports were belting in the days when the nation was continually shocked at the tales of Coney Island. For most of its 137 years as a resort, Coney Island has been synonymous with sunf, sand, iness— and steaming hot dogs, with lots of mustard and sauerkraut. New York's most famous escape mechanism has fought it out with blue laws, vaudeville, movies, television, the automobile and generations of {amusement parks, with its five culture-minded critics. And, miles of smooth Atlantic beach like the apocryphal corpse at atjhe end of a 20-cent subway the Irish wake, as soon as the sobbing mourners lift their glasses in memory, it sits up and asks for a round, too. Today, the grand father of all ncleT faces its toughest fight—a real estate boom that has surrounded it with high rise apartments and threatens to shove them right into its midst.

The beach is summer days from walk to the surf and the boys still make animal noises at the current Miss Coney Island. Needs Cleanup Since World War II, Coney has paid for the nickname "Sodom by the Sea" thai it earned during its lurid era from 1870 to 1910. Latter day officials with a reform or cultural outlook have tended to give Ihe nod for public improvements, to other beaches. From ils scum lined water's edge to its depressing outskirts, Coney Island needs nothing so much as a cleanup and paintup job. It just may get both. This year, like the U.S. Cavalry to the rescue, Mayor John Lindsay's administration is reversing a 25-year trend to downgrade Coney. The mayor has pledged to "help create a revitalized amusement center even greater than the one that has been world famous for so many years." Park Commissioner Thomas P.P. Hvong, the city's ubiqui- ,tous boy wonder of recreation, j recently visited Coney andj i n 1920. the subway was spent two hours riding on the extended to Coney and it truly the "three race tracks, they would rub elbows with gamblers, crooked politicians, prostitutes, gangsters and commoners and cheer jockey Edward "Snapper" Garrison on to one of. his flashing finishes. Carrie Nation tried unsuccessfully to smash a few Coney bars. Diamond Jim Brady and Lillian Russell pedalled along the beach on a tandem bicycle, while John Phillip Sousa's band played on a hotel veranda. By the turn of the century, " ' turned into a checkerboard of amusement parks. The storied Dreamland Park opened in 1911. and years after it burned to the ground its theme song "Meet me Tonight in Dreamland" lingers on as a shadowy memory. Singing Waiter About thai time a young man by the nam of Israel Baline was a singing waiter Stache's Reslauranl before changed his Berlin and in he name to Irving started writing songs.

He is all for Estopping the march of the 'apartment houses. 1 "I would very much like to map steeplechase as a park," he said, delight. to Coney Islanders' Before rived, Coney Island has always been money making proposition. European settlers ar- the Canarsie Indians searched the sandy marshes for wampum shells. They also used the ocean ifront as a hideout for their women and children, sharing it with a multitude of rabbits—called coneys. In 1829, enterprising individuals threw a bridge across Coney Island Creek—now long filled in—and built a shell road over the salt beach where marsh they to the became the workingman's playground. Coney Island's standard bearer today is Nathan Handwerker, founder of "Nathan's Famous" which is celebrating its 50th year as the world's largest hot dog stand. Nathan's sign-covered establishment, with its open ifront and fast working countermen, dispenses millions of hot dogs a . year. The original stand that sold hot dogs for a nickle is now an $8 million-a-year business. "No one can hope to be elected in this state without being photographed eating a hot dog at Nathan's Famous," Gov. Nelson Rockefeller said. And dozens hopefully follow his erected advice.
