(AP Wirephoto) Oregon's PORTLAND, Ore (AP) -Oregon's five-year-old Bottle Bill is saving energy and raw materials, creating jobs and keeping rusting beer cans off the countryside, say its supporters. Opponents argue that the 1972 law is a foolish piece of legislation that's thrown people out of work, played havoc with industry, raised the price of beer and soft drinks and robbed the public of free choice. Battle lines probably will form along those arguments as Sen. Mark Hatfield, Soil Surveyed WAUSAU Soil scientists have talked to more than 200 landowners, walked at least 250 miles and dug about 5,000 auger holes to complete soil maps of McMillan Township recently. Scientists used hand augers to dig three-inch diameter holes to a depth of five feet or less. Purpose of the holes was to observe soil characteristics such as texture, color, drainage, depth of topsoil and amounts of gravel and cobbles. This information was used to identify the area of different soils and .to plot their location on aerial photos. The soil maps can be used by farmers to help them design and-build conservation practices which help control soil erosion. Persons interested in forestry and wildlife can use soil maps to help determine what species of trees to plant for wildlife food and cover. Park Study Ready PARK FALLS - The approved Final Environmental Analysis Report for aerial herbicide release of plantations on the Chequamegon National Forest is now available to the public.

Oregon's ban on nonreturnable containers took effect Oct 1, 1972. It requires a refundable deposit on all beer and soft drink bottles and cans sold in the state and outlaws throwaway pull-tabs on cans A similar law was passed in Vermont the same year, and a few states, including Michigan and Maine, recently followed suit. Maine's law takes effect Jan 1. while Michigan's ban begins in the fall of 1978. William Bree, head of solid waste management for the Oregon Department of Environmental Quality, said a national bill might win approval "if one or two more states pass bottle . bills "Each of these laws is different in some respects and that would make it very difficult to distribute (beverages) nationally So just to get some kind of 1978 - ii in i HIEC&85 YourCompa Make Th Desk Calendar that pays off in increased Efficiency.

"I think there's a lot less litter now than there was before. That's very obvious," said Bill Wessinger of the Brewing Co of Oregon "And as near as I can tell, the people of the state love it " Bree cites public opinion polls showing 90 per cent of Oregonians favor the law He said litter surveys along selected portions of Oregon highways showed a 72 per cent reduction in discarded cans and bottles after one year, and an 83 per cent reduction after two years. Bree said the deposits have resulted in youngsters searching roadsides and parks for discarded containers. A spokesman for Reynolds Aluminum Co. said the law "is a fact of life and we have certainly accepted that fact of life." The spokesman said aluminum "is the most recyclable container of all.

"When you recycle an aluminum can." he said, "you're using less than 5 per cent of the energy that was needed to make it that first time " Bree said returnable bottles can be refilled 20 to 25 times each, with significant energy savings He said enough energy is saved in Oregon each year "as a result of the Bottle Bill, to supply all the home heating needs for 12.000 homes " Bree accepts industry and labor arguments that jobs were lost, especially among glass and steel workers, when the bill became law The losses were more than offset, however, as more retail clerks, truck drivers and brewing and bottling workers- were hired to deal with reusable containers, he said "Across the state, there's been a net increase of approximately 300 jobs," Bree said US Office Supplies OUR 40th YEAR Inc.
