Each day, members of the entire student body at Waialae Elementary School haul dry rubbish from their homes to school, where it is accumulated and sorted by the sixth grade class "When (he rubbish comes in daily, it's .rinsed and cleaned," Mrs. Okano said. "The cans are stripped of labels and lids, and smashed, stacked and stomped on Newspapers are bundled in tfoot4iigh bunches." With 750 youngsters bringing in tire family garbage every day, preparation for recycling is no small task. Even Mrs. Okano was surprised at how enthusiastic her class of 26 students has been. "I gross they've just gotten used to the rubbish," she said. "There's bden no sanitation or insect problems because we take precautions and make siire it's clean." The children in Iw class and from other classes volunteer their time en Saturdays when the final stamping, smashing and toying tiitist tie completed in time for pickup by a private firm foir recycling. Youngsters visit the recycling operations to see how the garbage they've collected is turned into usable cans and clean paper. "I'm really delighted with the enthusiasm," Mrs. Okano said. "They're learning how recycling works mi What they can do about environmental problems." The pretty young itoadrar, of Japanese ancestry, said she's "hoping that even after the class project is ovor, the you n gs le rs will be m a shi ng cans of their own. "Even the parents are becoming involved/' ishe said. "One mother offered to ma-Ira 'refreshments on Saturdays and one father offered his pickup (ruck for hauling the rubbish." French Flap About Wines Sour Grapes? By DICK WEST WASHINGTON (UPI) French newspapers have practically been making an international incident out of the fact White with beef at Cabernet wine President Nixon's dinner for Russia's Leonid Brezhnev. Nome has gone quite so far as to demand that the French (government break off diplomatic relations with the United States. The Lighter Side It was pointed out that "gastronomic heresies do not constitute a diplomatic error in tashiiinigiton." Bait the French clearly regarded the menu as an "aiffront to their national honor nd were treating the matter as a cause celebre. In Paris, apparently, a Cabernet with beef is a bigger scandal than Watergate. One paper said the combination "would make a gourmet faint in France." Nixon Oders Investigation If it will make the swoon- prone epicures feel any less giddy, I can report that Nixon ftais ordered an investigation to determine whelbher any members of his staff were involved in choosing the wine. One source close to the investigation assured me that none outside the White Hou?e wine cellar knew in advance thait Cabernet Sauvignon was being served. He swore the selection was made by backstairs personnel "whose zeal exceeded their judgment." . The^e is nn basis for rumors that ton White House aides approved the selection and that the President himself may have been aware of it, thlis source averred. Assuming that information is accurate, one bte qu^H^n arises—WW? Whv o c f ending \h a . Fr °nr *h bv pirv 'n? a claret-tvne Cabernet Sauvignon with beef bordelaise when a Burgundy-type Pinot Noir was available? Investigators Will Scurry That question undoubtedly will send investigators scurrying to the records to see whether any Cabernet Sauvi-g- non vintners were am^ the major contributors to Nixon's M72 campaign. It is m.v own feelimr th*t -anti- Nixon elements in the French press seized umn the incident in an attempt to undermine the Soviet-American detente. We all know fiat West European countries fw the'* influence in world affairs will diminish as the United States develops closer ties with China 'and the Soviet Union. Now suoDose that Brezhnev became convinced that Nixon had served him an inaoprowi- ate wine. Ttot surelv would be a major setback in *fcbe effort to improve relations boiween the two countries. At the same tim?, it would enhance the prestige of France making it apoear that French advice on wine selection i.s indispensable to the conduct of American foreign policy. In sum, the wine flap may be a case of sour grapes. Nixon Thanks McGovern Man SEATTLE, Wash. (UPI) Paul Elliott said Tuesday he received a card from the White House, signed "Dick and Pat, David and Julie, and Eddie and Tricia," bearing the presidential seal and a picture of the Nixon family, thanking him "with our deep appreciation for helping malce our victory on Nov. 7, 1972." Elliott, 21, Who was Washington State youth coordinator for Sen. George McGovern, said, "f know we weren't able to carry the state, but I didn't realize we were that ineffective."
