Boston Globe Thursday, April 16, 1970 Lake Winnipesaukee' Most Scenic Resort Scientist predicts a new ice age by 21st century WW" "J J i f MAYOR WHITE Colleges rap ;dty plan to curb growth J By Gerard M. O'Neill V, Globe Staff Mayor Kevin White's , plan to curb expansion of . tax-emempt Boston educa-.., tional institutions was op- , posed yesterday by sever-f , al major city colleges at a . . zoning commission hear-v ing. The White administra-. tion is seeking changes in . the city's zoning code which would put all university expansion on a " conditional basis, with final approval resting with the Zoning Board of Appeals. White's proposal was 3 . endorsed by the Back Bay Assn. and the Greater Boston Real Estate Board and opposed by Boston - University, Boston College, Northeastern University, f Emerson College and Fish-? er Junior College. The zoning commision, which has a majority appointed by White, can change the code unilater- ally and does not need ' CityCouncil concurrence. It took the matter under advisement and its decision becomes final 16 days after it's made. . , School spokesmen I termed the code amendment discriminatory, "a back door solution to city fiscal problems," anti- - student, and complained - they only had one day to ; prepare for the hearing. Gene T e i z e i r a, vice president for administra- - tive affairs at Emerson, - said, "We don't like the smell of this at all. Emer- son has been under the , type of restrictions being , proposed for all of the , city and it amounts to harassment. "Boston colleges are - being confronted by nar-' - row-minded special in-J 'terest groups, like the ' Back Bay Association ... v there's a lot of selfish peo-r pie in this room," Teixeira 'added. ' Following the hearing, Mayor White countered " "the late notice charge," by announcing his staff had been informed only yesterday that Boston College is planning to buy the Hotel Somerset. "Now this is a classic example of uncontrolled institutional expansion," White said. The hotel could become home for 600-800 students and the city could lose $187,000 in taxes. : A White aide said B.C. confirmed it is negotiating with the hotel, but the college would not say whether it was close to signing a contract or if the building would be a dormitory or an investment. In a prepared statement, delivered by Barney Frank, chief assistant to White, the city said, "Our purpose is not to destroy or harass or even prohibit the growth of educational institutions. It is, simply, to control that growth." The zoning change to govern college land use is part of a two-pronged White package that would also attempt to raise $12 million from private tax-exempt institutions as payment to - the city for the cost of municipal services rendered from police to sewerage. James B. Ayres, Globe Staff Air pollution may obliterate the sun and cause a new ice age in the first third of the next century if population continues to grow and the earth's resources are consumed at the present rate, a pollution expert predicted yesterday. James P. Lodge Jr. also warned that if the current rate of increase in electric power generation continues, the demands for cooling water will boil dry the entire flow of the rivers and streams of continental United States. Looking into his "smoggy crystal ball," Lodge also warned that by the next century "the consumption of oxygen in combustion processes, world-wide, will surpass all of the processes which return oxygen to the atmosphere." Lodge, a scientist at the national center for Atmospheric Research in Boulder, Colo., said the nation's states, with the exception of Alaska and Hawaii, "are already consuming more oxygen than their own green plants replace and that we are importing the balance from the neighboring oceans.'' Lodge, speaking at the Institute of Environmental Sciences, at the Sheraton Boston, said three factors could prevent these disasters: population control, a less wasteful standard of living, and a major technological breakthrough in the way man consumes the earth's resources. "What is obvious at the moment is that we cannot continue indefinitely to grow in population, in living standard, and in technology of the present sort without one or another catastrophe overtaking us,", he said. Lodge doubted that man will wake up to the ecological disaster which threatens his existence. "Based on the past performance of mankind, a tragedy may be necessary fully to mobilize public opinion to correct the situation. It may be that a few million deaths will be necessary to bring about the change in our culture that will ultimately lead to human survival," he said. Comparing man and his dependence on earth to a colony of bacteria in a dish, he said the size of the bacteria colony is limited by the ability of the substance in the dish to absorb the b a c t e r i a's wastes. Lodge says man differs from bacteria in at least three important respects: Man is capable of controlling his population, unlike the bacteria, man can devise other ways to export or transform his place, man can also adjust his life style to "generate as little waste as the primitive aborigines or as much as an affluent American. Lodge said man "cannot turn back the clock and return to the horse and buggy which caused its own variety of pollution." "Those who try to preach salvation by the end of scientific and tech- n o 1 o g i c a 1 advance are being no more realistic than those who preach that mankind can continue to breathe indefinitely and trust to the Lord for salvation," he said. Scientists and engineers at the conference have been meeting for three days to explore the application of space age life support technology to the earth's environmental problems.

Former Atty. Gen Edward J. . McCormack of Massachusetts and former Atty. Gen. William May-nard of New Hampshire differed yesterday in Suffolk Superior Court as to persons who were in the Suffolk County Grand Jury room during testimony that led to indictment of George L. Brady. McCormack and May-nard were called as witnesses before Judge Edward F. Hennessey who is presiding at the trial of Brady, former chairman of the Massachusetts Parking Authority. Brady is charged with conspiracy to steal about $400,000 of the authority's funds in connection with the Boston Common garage project. Judge Hennessey has been hearing a series of motions filed by attorney Robert "Tuse, counsel for Brady, 'eking dismissal of the l actments. One motion alleged that state police Lt. Edward Scho-field, chief investigator into alleged irregularities in the Common garage project, was improperly present in the grand jury room during testimony of witnesses. Maynard n his testimony told Judge Hennessey he saw Schofield in the room. McCormack denied Schofield was in the room during the 1962 proceedings. Earlier yesterday, Judge Hennessey denied a motion in which Brady alleged that U.S. Sen. Edward W. Brooke, at the time Brooke was attorney general, offered to drop indictments against Brady if Brady's wife, Mrs. Lucy Brady, would have a guardian appointed for Brady. -9 SKENDERIAH APOTHECARY PRESCRIPTION SPECIALISTS Free dependable prescription delivery.
