FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER tt, 19M (ARK.) COURIBB NEW! PAGEFTV1 Air Pollution May Be the Secret To World's Apparent^/arming Up Br SAM DAWSOIf NEW YORK (AP) — Air pollution is accused of many things — choking city residents, souring tourists, stunting flower gardens, unravelling stockings. Now there's talk that dirty air may be the secret of the apparent warming up of the world's climate in recent year*. More than 100 laboratories are working on specific phases of the pollution problem. Oil industry scientists, for example, have brougbt out a new gadget for measuring and identifying impurities in the air. They hope to find out how auto exhausts, wastes from burning rubbish, fumes from industrial smokestacks react to other things in the air. Factories are installing more and more equipment to hold down air pollution. Cities debate complex and expensive schemes for clearing out smog pockets. Besides the toll in human com fort, air pollution cost* untold sums in property damage. Greenhouse Effect Now, Dr. John G. Hutton ofj General Electric* engineering laboratory in Schenectady, N. Y.. says all this bad air may be "having a greenhouse effect on our climate." The industrial scientist charges j that man is "contaminating the earth's atmosphere faster than nature can clean it." This pollution pumps up a belt of carbon dioxide encircling the - earth* which acts like a blanket—or a greenhouse. The idea, that the diny air is having a greenhouse effect and warming up the climate will be studied. Dr. Button says, by many scientists during the International Geophysical Year in 1958. Henry M. Margolis. president of Schmieg Industries, a Detroit producer of industrial equipment for removing dust and fumes, says the U.S. Department of Health.

Search for Kidnaped Baby Centers in Sah Jose, Calif. SAN FRANCISCO (*—The grow- ounce. Ing search for kidnaped Robert Marcus centered again today in San Jose, CaW., alter spreading briefly last night across the nation to Atlantic City, N. J. Hopes rose briefly that a week- old boy found abandoned in a church in Atlantic City might be the son of Dr. and Mrs. Sanford Marcus. Robert was snatched from the nursery »t Mt. Zion Hospital here Monday when only 2 days old. Dr. Marcus and his 28-year-old wile Hanna studied an Associated Press Wirephoto of the Atlantic Citj' baby and said: "He is not our son." Footed*!* A final check of footprint* of the two infants will be made by the FBI in Washington today. The FBI had AP Wirephotos and airmailed pictures of Robert's footprints. Meanwhile, 1,000 or more per-! sons—police, firemen, civil defense i workers and college students—i started a house-by-house search of) the Willow Glen district of San; Jose, 50 miles south of here. | A husky blonde woman with aj baby has been seen there repeated-] ly under peculiar circumstances ini the last two days, but never de-i tained for questioning. ne ia 1.01 ou. au...

Police Chief Ray Blacimor* of San Jose said, "We believe we are going to be successful. The fact we have not found the baby the first few hours doesn't make me believe the woman and infant are not here." A hoax ransom note, demanding 56,000, entered the case yesterday and promptly brought the FBI into tht learch. Police branded it the work of a crank—and failed to nab him when they set a trap. The cruel hoax nearly caused Hie collapse of Dr. Marcus, 34. He was taken to the hospital—where he is on the staff—and given.seda- tives, in the same room his wife is being fed intravenously; she has refused an load since her child was stolen.
