For Your Convenience Youths Ordered 0- To Clean Up A Rubbish "Mess LEE Because they couldn't find a dump open in Great Barrington, two youths threw a load of refuse down a Stockbridge hillside on Thanksgiving Day. I( Saturday, Richard J. Robbins, 19, of Poughkeepsie, N.Y., and Arlo Guthrie, 18, of Howard Beach, N.Y., each paid a fine of $25 in Lee District Court after pleading guilty of illegally disposing of rubbish. Special Jus- tice James E.

Hannon ordered the youths to remove all the rubbish. They did so Saturday afternoon, following a heavy. rain. Police Chief William J. Oban- hein of Stockbridge said later the youths found dragging the junk up the hillside much bar-der than throwing it down.

He said he hoped their case would be an example to others who are careless about disposal of rubbish. The junk included a divan, plus nearly enough bottles, garbage, papers and boxes tO their Volkswagen bus. "The stuff would take up at least half of a goodsized pickup truck," Chief Obanhein said. The rubbish was thrown into the Nelson Foote Sr. property on Prospect StreetAa residential section of Stockbridge consisting largely of estates on the bill across from Indian Hilil School.

Chief Obanhein told the court he spent "a very disagreeable two hours" looking through the rubbish before finding a clue to who had thrown it there. He fi- nally found a scrap of paper bearing the name of a Great Barrington man. Subsequent investigation indicated Robbins and Guthrie had been visiting the Great Barrington man and had agreed to cart away the rubbish for him. They told the 11: court that, when they found the Barrington dump closed, they drove around and then disposed of the junk by tossing it over the Stockbridge hillside. of of na visiting man and away the told the found the )sed, they disposed ig it over .1 de.
