Dandelions have become so rare in England that London's Kew Gardens is staging an exfiibition of the weed. Botanists said the widespread Gas Sealed In Michigan Bubble Town WILLIAMSBURG, Mich. UPI) — Amoco Production Co. workers Wednesday successfully sealed the runaway gas well which was the suspected culprit of gas eruptions in this village or more than a week. However, William MuUen- dore, a spokesman for the Michigan Departmant of Natural Resources, said no letup in the already present gas-and- mud spewing geysers was expected for at least three days. "The gas already in the ground will still come out of the ground," MuUendore said. "It's not like turning off a faucet." Mullendore said the only thing that can be assured was "no more gas would be leaking from that hole." Grand Traverse County sheriff's deputies reported another gas leakage two miles east of Traverse City, the closest the highly dangerous gas had come to the area's largest city. •"Sgt. Tom Schmuckal said the — Pity the,use of selective weed-killers has all but eliminated the dandelion from the gardens of English homes, and the flowers no longer flourish in the nation's meadows and pastures as they once did. "It won't be long before we have children asking what a dandelion is," said a spokesman at Kew Gardens. "The day seems gone when the countryside was ablaze with yellow with the approach of spring." Children visiting the exhibition can be forgiven if they think dandelions are something to eat or drink. Signs inform visitors the dandelion's young leaves were used for salads in the lean postwar years in Germany, and that in England there was much to be said for a well- matured bottle of dandelion wine.

"I can't see what they can do about it," said the Kew Gardens spokesman. "It's all very well for poets to wax lyrical about 'gold buttons sewn upon the lawn' but try telluig that to today's fastidious gardener. Most people just don't want to know." A spokesman for the campaign said the group nevertheless hopes to induce in Britons the same sentiments that drove poet J. R. LoweV to write: ."Dear common flower, that grow'st beside the way Fringing the dusty road with harmless gold First pledge of blithesome May Which children pluck, and full of pride, uphold."

It said the convention is designed to eliminate child labor which is still widespread in many parts of the world. The convention will be a major item at the ILO's next annual conference June 3 to 27. In 1970, the ILO said, there were more than 40 million children under 15 employed throughout the world. by ghost-hunter Frederick Holiday in a book titled "The Dragon and the Disc" which was published today. Holiday says the monster, affectionately known as "Nessie," was actually a manifestation of a spirit or ghosts. The theory is a.turnabout for Holiday, who wrote a book five years ago supporting the theory of a live, flesh and blood monster in the depths of Loch Ness, a long and narrow lake near Inverness, Scotland. He said he changed his mind because all the expeditions to catch the creature in recent years have failed. "She'U never be caught...she doesn't exist," he said. Holiday said the Loch Ness monster must be Included with other phenonlena such as flying saucers for which there is no rational explanation. blankets for opening an account are about. The bad news is that a free market might also cost you, the consumer, more. Under the present system of controls the home buyer derives a certain advantage from our perpetual inflation. He comes out ahead if he borrows money to buy a house with 1960 dollars, but pays it back with 1973 dollars. The Hunt proposals would do away with that advantage with variable interest rates which could rise during the term of the mortgage. THE COMMISSION would stop the banking and finance system from being used as a vehicle underwriting socially useful objectives like low and middle- income housing. Henceforth our subsidies would be out in the open where we could see and debate them instead of being handled as they presently are by a method as incomprehensibly involved as it is ineffectual. Untouched by the commission are some very old objections to the way the Federal Reserve Bank is set up such as its immunity from Congressional oversight, its antique regional banks that don't do anything a computer can't do better, except waste money, and the domination of its decision-making process by bankers. Nor does the report tell how the system automatically enriches a small number of pe<c^le and institutions by being allowed, in effect, to lend untold quantities of money for which little or no interest is paid. Under the Hunt recommendations, the big guys will still get the lush government securities and the rest of us will be stuck with those chintzy, bum-deal savings btmds. They may do something about the Capitol wall, however, and if Martha Mitchell's found murdered, John'Il be sorry he didn't listen to her.
