TKf Mercury, Pottstown, Pa. - Feb 4, Î975 •/.:¿nry Ford Hits Waste In Country NEW YORK (AP) Henry Ford was quoted Sunday as saying "We waste everything in this country. I wonder, theoretically, if it's right that the auto indusln should chew up as much raw materials as it chews up." Time magazine reported the auto magnate said in an interview. "I don't think we've done as much as we should with scrap. A 4ot more should be done with recycling.” The magazine did not quote Ford as making any specific suggestions It said he felt, however, that Congress would pass a new law on the problem of cars vs. conservation but was unsure whether it would be on gas consumption 01 auto size Time said Ford believed revived train travel is “a lad" and that "this country developed in a particular way because of the automobile, and you just can't push a button and change it." He also called pollution control "a disaster" which is costing Ford Motor Co. million this year and will cost SI64 million in 1977 $900 Damage Caused in Crash Damage w as estimated at $900 following a two car accident Saturday morning at High and Berks streets. Pottstown police said the accident occurred at 10:45 a.m. when Richard Lee Brownie. 231 Berks St.. pulled from the parking lot at Jack's Sunoco Station, onto High Street into the path of a car driven by Gordon Baker. Pottstown RD. Patrolman Karl Karlson said Brownie was attempting to make a left turn onto High Street and the Baker auto was heading west on High Street at the time of the crash. There were no injuries. Girl is Injured An area girl was injured Saturday morning when the car in which she was riding slammed into a tree in South Coventry Township. Kimberly Wanat. 12. Spring City RD 1. was taken by her mother, Mrs. Barbara Winters, to Phoenixville Hospital following the 9 a.m. accident.

Smith 3rd. fielG archaeologist of the William Penn Memorial Museum, Harrisburg, will be guest speaker at a meeting of the Schuylkill Valley Chapter of the Society for Pennsylvania Archaeology 7:30 p.m. Wednesday in the science building of The Hill School.

Smith received a master's degree in anthropology from Pennsylvania State University and works with the Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission Some drinking drivers get shot If you think your local constabulary is too tough with drinking drivers, consider some penalties invoked in other countries. In Malaya the drunk and his wife go to jaii , in Turkey the drunk driver is driven 20 miles out of town and forced to walk back under escort; in South Africa he gets a 10-year sentence and-or a $2,800 fine. But the toughest sentence is frobably that levied in San Salvador: drunk drivers are executed by firing squad. — CNS THE & MERCURY A WEEKLY TRIBUTE TO BUSINESS CARPET i RUG CLEANING WAIL TO WALL IN YOUR HOME PICKUP 4 DELIVERY SERVICE jp, m, CLEANING SERVICE 871 So.
