(AP Wirephoto) By G. DAVID WALLACE Associated Press Writer WASHINGTON (AP) Federal officials report a steady decline in the rate illegal residues of organic arsenic are found in poultry samples, but the number of Cops find arsenal CHICAGO (AP) - A cache of 117 weapons, including shotguns, handguns and home-made explosives, were uncovered by police Wednesday when they searched two garages for stolen motorcycles. Police also uncovered three motorcycles, a car, cameras, tape recorders and flashlight batteries after going to the garages on a tip from an informant. Johnny Davis, former head of the Southwest Chicago chapter of the Outlaws motorcycle gang, was charged with possession of a stolen motorcycle. Police said the cycle had been missing since July. Police said they found 22 rifles, 32 .45-caliber automatic p i s t o 1 s , 50 .38-caliber revolvers and 13 assorted handguns. Many of the items were in their original cartons, police reported. violations rermins hipher than for any other farm feed additive. Officials stressed that residues of organic arsenic present no apparent human health hazard since the substance is far less toxic than inorganic arsenic — the poison made famous in fiction and history. Agriculture Department figures provided in response to an Associated Press query showed 27.5 per cent of the poultry samples taken in 1968 contained excess amounts of organic arsenic. The figure dropped to 17 per cent of the 309 samples taken in 1969. The Agriculture Department did not have complete figures for 1970, but officials of the Food and Drug Administration said monthly residues were found in from 5 and 8 per cent of the poultry sampled last year. Organic arsenic—like hor- mones, antibiotics and other additives—is put in animnl feed to make the beasts grow faster. The government limits residues of the additives in the human food supply by specifying the drugs be withdrawn from the feed for a certain number of days before slaughter. The five-day withdrawal period for arsenic is the longest required. But compliance with the withdrawal period depends largely on individual farmers and some specialists have argued that adherence is spotty. Agriculture Department inspectors found illegal residues of antibiotics in a slightly over 1 per cent of the red meat animals sampled in 1968 and 1909. Hormone residues were detected in less than 1 per cent of the beef cattle tested. The FDA seizes, whore possible, the mrat of animals found with excessive rrsiduos. Often, however, thr trsls ;ire completed only after the meat has already gone to market, officials said. Dr. C. D. van Houweling, director of FDA's bureau of veterinary medicine, said the agency began using a new approach three months a,cio. Now the government Issues citations against farmers. The citations could eventually lead to injunctions against violators. Van Houweling said the poultry violations would probably dwindle to practically nothing if the legal tolerance for arsenic were raised to a level allowed in hogs. Federal regulations permit two parts of arsenic per million parts of flesh in the liver of hogs but only one part per million for chickens. Illegal residues were foutid ill 3 per cent of the 1968 hog samples and about 1.5 per cent of the 202 hog samples in 1969.
