By GORDON ROBINSON HAMILTON, Bermuda (AP) — The arthrobacter may become the main weapon in the battle to keep Bermuda's famed pink-and-white beaches free of globs of tar which wash ashore from Atlantic shipping lanes. For several years now, the pollution has become an increasing nuisance to residents and tourists alike, as tankers persist in flushing out their bilges at sea despite growing worldwide concern over ocean pollution. In the main, this mid-Atlantic British colony's waters are still clear and sparkling, but lumps of tar are soiling bathers' bodies and clothing. The government has two says that the bug is inexpensive team has concluded that $00,000 on conviction in to cultivate.

Use of the arthrobacter may prove to be profitable to tanker owners, and that could be the no limit on fines which may be imposed if a case is dealt with in Supreme Court.

But now, the arthrobacter has been discovered by microbiologists at Tel Aviv University and Bermuda is interested in finding out more about the tiny oil-eating bug. Discovery of the arthrobacter has intrigued a team of scientists at the Bermuda Biological Station who are probing the islands' pollution problem. One of them, Byron Morris, 30 per cent of the world's tankers flush their bilges at sea, but they produce 70 per cent of the pollution problem. It is also estimated that between 100,000 and 200,000 tons of tar are today floating on the surface of the North Atlantic, increasing at an annual rate of 250,000 tons. Closure of the Suez Canal, which drastically changed tanker routes, is believed to be the chief reason for this. The Biological Station research 27. Cravat 29. Satellite CROSSWORD PUZZLE ACROSS 1.

Steam emanating wallpaper in one of the rooms of from the portable unit softens an old house we have just the glue, but here, too, the bought Can you tell us an easy difficulty of the job is determined by the number of layers way to do it? A. — No. There is no easy way if it's ordinary wallpaper. But if you are lucky and there is only a single layer of paper, it won't be as difficult as if there are two or more layers. Some paper will yield to hot water and a sponge, soaking small sections at a time. A wallpaper remover is more effective. In either case, scraping with a putty knife is necessary. The scraping must be done while the area being worked on is still wet The more layers of paper there are, the more soaking and scraping will be required. If the paper has a plastic coating, you may have to slice the paper at various places so that the water or remover can get underneath to soften the old glue.

It must also be pointed out that the steam that comes out of the machine will fill the room or even the house with water vapor, so it is important that there be as much ventilation as possible while the project is in progress. Note that at the beginning of this reply it was said there is no easy way "if it's ordinary wallpaper" that must be removed. The one time removing wallpaper can be relatively easy (not always, but most of the time) is when the paper is the heavy type made with fabric or other material with a special backing, the kind often used in kitchens. This type usually can be peeled off much as you might take off adhesive tape. Two extra tips: (1) if the wall is wall board rather than plaster, go easy on the amount of water used and be extra carefulhandling the putty knife; (21 consider the possibility of putting the new paper over the old if the latter is soundly attached and in good condition. 30.

Long-haired ox QUESTION; What is a philatelist? * * * ANSWER: A philaielist is a student of postage stamps. Collecting stamps has been a popular hobby for many years. People of all ages, rich and poor, engage in this interesting hobby. Great .Britain issued the first postage stamps in 1840. The first issue of United States postage stamps appeared in 1847. By 1860, almost every country used stamps in payment of postage. Stamp collecting started shortly after the first stamps were issued. It became a recognized hobby in the !850s. The first printed catalogue was issued in 1861; the first album in 1862. Stamp collecting enhances a knowledge of history. Collectors concentrate on the stamps of various countries or air mail or commemorative stamps. Issues showing bridges, ships, railroads and animals are of interest. Some people collect stamps of a certain color. The value of stamps depends on demand, rarity and condition. King George V of England and Franklin D. Roosevelt were ardent collectors. Queen Elizabeth II of England owns the most valuable private collection. 8-2 (Craig Seastrom of Muskegon, Mich., wins a prize for this question.

ROSTAD, Section 32, Maine Township, Lewis Tysdal, Auctioneer (Dairy & Farm) ** * * Q. — Is it true that what is sometimes called cherry wood is really red gum? A. — It may be true in some cases, but reputable dealers do not misrepresent. Actually cherry wood is a lustrous reddish brown. Red gum has the same color tone but is rather dingy in appearance. Where purchasers go wrong is in failing to note the word "finish" in advertisements, regardlessof the type of wood that really is used. For example, a "mahogany finish" wood is not mahogany. A "maple finish" wood is not maple. Q. — I bought a house with a swimming pool which has a cover on it. After I take off the cover, what steps (other than a chlorine treatment, which I know about) should be taken to prepare the pool for use? A. — After taking off the cover, clean up any debris. Turn on the skimmer, which you should have or get, but also dip out any bigger pieces by hand. Vacuum walls as necessary. With a vinyl-liner pool, this will be needed heavily only at the water line. Concrete pools should be drained, all surfaces thoroughly scoured and washed and repainted as necessary. You might consider a new gadget that combines skimming the pool, drawing in the water and passing it through a filter, then distributing it, fed full of chemicals, through the mixing stream to the pool again.
