That's what.dty officials and lojOwntown shoppers wondered yesterday when somebody noticed that. the fountain in City Hall Plaza was covered with iy, white suds. It looked like the head oa glass of beer. The longer the jet streams of water shot into the air and set-' tied back into the fountain, the more the stuff bubbled. City of ficials weren t sure whether it was bubble bath or soap pow der, but generally conceded it was probably the former, Park Superintendent William Penn Mott Jr. said he thought! pranksters had done the job over the weekend. The jet streams are turned off at night and turned on again in the morning. There is a possi bility that the substance poured into the fountain lay dormant Sunday night, and when the jet streams were turned on yester day morning, it foamed into sudsy brilliance. taf-teplt ' wonore'1ritf'V day what to do about the bub bles. Then chemist Harry Gross. man of W0 18th St stepped for ward. Grossman volunteered to "whipip" a batch of something that would get rid of the suds in moments. But before this could ' be done, a park department worker. Gene Biscay drained the foun tain and washed the bubbles (or suds) away with a hose. Move to Annex Moffett Field Hit MOUNTAIN VIEW.
