By JERRY SHEEHAN Newspapers Knterj»rl«c A «t «n. N EW YORK—Talk all you want to about smog control . . . But how do you get rid of an old sofa? Permanently get rid of it, that is. This is the headache which confronts the New York City Sanitation Department — and every similar organization across the country—every day. Sofas, of course, are just one item discarded all the time by 16 million persons in the nation's biggest metropolitan area. For sanitation officials, a thousand old sofas al the end of the collection day present a titanic problem—a problem which shows why complete abolition of smog in the 20th Century can never be more than a wispy dream. Arthura .i. Henline pressed his forehead and peered down at smoldering junk yairls on the .Jersey side of the Hudson River. Ronline is bend of New York's air pollution control, and the clouds of smoke which rose under the belly of the helicopter were his problem. "Well, there are your .sofas," said Renline. ''You can't dump them off hnrges in the Atlantic or you'd have derelict furniture piled up like a breakwater along the beaches. "You couldn't die a hole big enough (o bury them, so you have to burn them. Did you ever smell a sofa after a cigarette got going in the stuff­ ings'.' That gives you a small idea of what vve'rp up against." Someone in H IP helicopter, taking the Reader's Digest- sponsored smog excursion, sug- gester rocketing the sofas into orbit, but Henline didn't laugh. The helicopter rattled nnd shuddered past the dumps and over the great, [timing New Jersey refineries. These produce millions of gallons of gas which, when burned, produce more fumes to pollute New York's atmosphere. The smog which drifts over the New Jersey turnpike, and' It's Morrison Vs.

On past chemical plan's and steamships the helicopter jogged—circling the immense bedroom of Manhattan its boroughs. Again, more dumps and incinerators, open construction fires and a Vesuvius of dust from the Verrazano Bridge construction area. The New York Airways helicopter then danced around the belching smokestacks of the electrical generating plants which keep the city's elevators, adding machines, printing plants and subway trains running.

McKeithen, '15, who had attacked the administration's civ-: 11 rights program during the 10- j man first Democratic primary, j made It clear he would resume an anti-Washington campaign. Such attacks halted with President Kennedy's slaying. McKeithen, state public service commissioner, said the states rights issue "was borne out" by the fourth nnd fifth- place finishes of two strong segregationists — former G o v. I Robert F. Kennon and Shelby j H. Jackson, state superintendent of education. Morrison. 51, appointed to a diplomatic post by Kennedy, attempted to steer the runoff toward local topics. He said tlw. issues were the need for a government cleanup and a postive boost-Louisiana program. A former ambassador to the Qrgaiuzation of A m eric a n States, Morrison for ycare has been regarded as a liberal in- this Deep South state.

Manuscripts Lost In Fire CHICAGO (AP) - A 28-year accumulation of original manuscripts and art work printed in esquire magazine has been ruined in a warehouse fire. "The collection included practically every famous writer in the United States since the first issue in lf>3(>." said Heleaie Richards, Esquire personnel director. "E r n v s t Hemingway. John Des Passes. F. Scott Fitzgerald, Aldous Huxley..." She broke off. "I don't want to talk about it any more — You name him and we had him." The fire Thursday was on the top floor of n three-story factory and warehouse at 1600 Dearborn St. the fire was limited to causing $15,000 damage to the building, but tons of water cascaded onto the Esquiare cache of manuscripts on the second floor. Ray Thompson, in charge of Esquire archives, estimated the loss at $250,000. Also lost were original manuscripts of Coronet magazine dating to 1933. The cause of the blaze was undetermined. People duck the commercials on certain items to get a snack of items that aren't advertised. Last-Minute Shopping Sure Path To Doghouse By AIXEKN S.VODDY, Ncwspnper Enterprise Assn.
