Dan Wilson, featuring news 5 30, 6 00 6 30, 7 00, 7 30 and and Earth Day Crusade Grows By The Associated Press In Yakima, Wash., a U.S. Army officer has come up with an answer to the problem of automobiles abandoned on Yakima streets: blow them up. Lt. Col. James P. Johnson, deputy post commander at the Yakima Firing Range told a community cleanup campaign that the Army would remove auto bodies and haul them to the firing range for target practice by Army tanks. So goes one more small step in the fight to save the environment, a struggle marked by advances and retreats, but a continuing fight that shows no evidence of having spent itself in Earth Day last April 22. In early May, for example, the Louis Harris polling organization found that in the relatively unspoiled state of Washington the environment had become one of the primary concerns of the residents. .And a few days after Earth Day, the Ecological Society of America released a professional study urging establishment of a National Institute of Ecology. The report, supported by the National Science Foundation, said such an institute could be the focus of international ecological activity. "It would provide scientific data to guide the formulation of national and global strategies for effective environmental management and control." As interest appeared to be gathering in the environmental movement, ecologists counted some of their gains and losses. -- Environmental advocates won what they consider a victory with the announcement by the Federal Water Quality Administration of a thermal pollution policy that would forbid dumping virtually any heated water into Lake Michigan. The policy would affect seven planned power plants, industries and municipalities. -- But President Nixon's as- sistant for consumer affairs, Mrs. Virginia Knauer, reported that a federal survey of public water supply samples showed that 30 per cent contained excessive amounts of germs and chemicals. -- The average amount of DDT in fish caught in Connecticut rivers and lakes has decreased since airplane spraying was abandoned in 1965. But the Canadian government has banned the sale and export of perch and pickerel from Lake Erie because of possible mercury contamination. - The National Science Foundation announced an urgent project to investigate potential ecological effects of the proposed trans-Alaskan oil pipeline and of development of Alaska's North Slope because if its oil deposits. But the Sierra Club, a leading conservation group, lost its fight to get a seat on the board of directors of the Atlantic Richfield Co. in its efforts to stop construction of the trans-Alaska pipeline. Looking ahead, the environmental activists have as their most immediate target the development of a civil supersonic transport aircraft. They strongly oppose continued SST development, arguing that it would benefit only a few privileged travelers while potentially harming countless persons by extreme noise at airports, sonic booms and pollution of the atmosphere. The SST issue is coming up now in Congress and the House Appropriations Committee has approved an additional $290 million for continued development. Looking ahead 30 years, an expert panel of the National Research Council-National Academy of Engineering warned that sulphur dioxide pollution of the atmosphere may more than triple in the next three decades unless government and industry take vigorous action. Pollution from sulphur dioxide and other closely related compounds comes mainly from oil- and coal-fired electricity generating plants. These are second only to the internal combustion engine as pollutants, the panel said. Here are some of the other ups and downs in the environment: - New York City's commissioner of water resources, Maurice M Feldman said the majestic but badly polluted Hudson River should regain its ability to support fish life some time in the mid-1970s because of pollution control efforts. "Al* though people have prematurely announced the death of the Hudson River," Feldman said, "the Hudson is not dead." -- A New York Times survey found that public zeal against littering is on the upswing across the country, but not yet enough so to offset the cost of collecting it. In Lincoln, Neb., the annual cost of cleanup work is $1.30 a person; in New York City $1.12. - Dr. Arie Jan Hagen-Smit, chairman of the President's Task "Force on Air Pollution, reported that there are promising signs the nation has risen to the challenge of combating pollution, but he lamented that all the American technology can never return the tons of topsoil lost from the American heartland to the Gulf of Mexico. -- In San Francisco, the Garden State Paper Co. announced it will conduct a market survey to study the economics involved in a newsprint recycling plant, in response to a question by the San Francisco Examiner that old newspapers be saved and turned into a recycling process Gregory Peck Gives New Look To Oscar Awards HOLLYWOOD (AP; - A year ago, Gregory Peck indicated that stodgy old Oscar was going to get a facelift. Now it has happened. In recent times, critics have accused the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences of being establishment-oriented. Oscar's gaze, they claimed, was toward Hollywood's golden but long-gone past. Thesecriticspointed to the recent Academy awards, which seemed to recognize the old- style entertainment movies while ignoring the excitement of the new cinema. The accusations seemed to have some merit. Each year after the nominations have been a n n o u n c e d , the Academy screens the nominated films in its theater. A glance over the audience at those screenings gives an indication of the membership. Many of those present have long retired from film making. Gregory Peck has been no Former Resident Completes School Karl Ports, son of Col. and Mrs. Kenneth Ports, formerly of Frederick County, has been graduated from the New Mexico Military Institute, Roswell, N.M., with honors. His father is chief of the air pollution control branch of the Army Environmental Hygiene Agency, a tenant activity at Edgewood Arsenal, Karl was selected to the Commandant's List of Distinquished Students for maintaining a high degree of proficiencv in military conduct and discipline. mere figurehead as president of the Academy. He was aware of the accusations of the geriatric nature of the Academy electorate, as well as the claims that pressures can be applied to swing votes. Peck was also aware that there would be hurt feelings and widespread indignation if the Academy made any abrupt changes in its membership. "The Board of Governors instituted a two-year study of the member roster," said a spokesman. "The Board realized that the passage of time had made some branch affiliations inappropriate. A committee went through the list, branch by branch and member by member." The review brought changes in status for 497 members. Forty-nine were changed from one branch to another- for example, a writer who had become a director. One hundred and nine were switched from branches to being members-at-targe. They were mostly members who had been inactive in films; they can now vote for the awards but not for the nominations in their own crafts. Three hundred and thirty-nine members were made associates, which means they cannot vote for awards. The Academy has also tightened up the rules on qualifications for new members; more experience in films will be required. Last week Peck announced another change: the members of the public relations branch were being switched to associate membership, thus depriving them of voting for the awards. The Academy president reasoned that the publicists do their major work after films are completed and thus have no hand in the creative process. "An eight-man committee headed by Daniel Taradash of the writers' branch was appointed to review complaints about the changes," said an Academy spokesman. "So far only 13 out of the 567 changes have been reversed." The new setup reduces the Academy electorate from 3,172 to 2,802. Peck believes mat the reduced total will be more responsive to what is current in the film world. But the real challenge lies ahead. Not only must the Academy revise its present membership; it must also attract the young film makers who are bringing excitement to the movie business today. So far they show little inclination to join the Academy or anything else that smacks of the establishment. ADULT DANCE Saturday * to 1 Prapw orau only ADMISSION »1.« CARL ZINN'S CLUB $$5 SIM Rt.

By CYNTHIA LOWRY AP Television-Radio Writer NEW YORK (AP) - "The Shining Mountains'" Wednesday evening was one of NBC's excellent but too infrequent "Project 20" documentary programs. This one combined in one short hour a quick history of the get-rich-quick mining days in the Rocky Mountains with a photographic paean celebrating their natural beauty and grandeur. The Rockies, explained narrator Milburn Stone, are 80 million years old, extend from Alaska to Mexico, and are really 35 different ranges side by side. That is a lot of territory, and the producer handled it by concentrating on those days in the late 19th century when men swarmed into the mountains, first in 1859 for gold and later for silver and then other metals. This portion was the usual stuff of TV documentaries- film showing the ghost towns and ghost mines as they are today and then the old photographs and posters made during the boom times. As usual with "Project 20" programs, the research showed. The narrator explained that in the early days gold dust was the currency of each community and was valued at 25 cents a pinch-- with the seller doing the pinching. Some greedy ones let their fingernails grow long and pressed a dried pea into the end of a finger to make a dent- all for a bigger pinch. The gold fever subsided to be replaced in 1878 with a silver rush and sections of the shining mountains-- the Rockies' Indian name-- went through the same boom town-to-ghost-town cycle again. The big picture was replaced occasionally by the small one when it Involved an interesting story. The program toW of Henry Taber, who took $10 million out of one mine and sportedla platinum toothpick and two watches in his vest pockets. He lavished everying on his wife, Baby Doe, but died penniless. Baby Doe lived out her widowhood in a shack near one of his flooded mines and ultimately froze to death. The great mountains are now being invaded again, this time by a rush of winter sports enthusiasts. But they make only trails on snow for their skis and snowmobiles without destroying the beauty or gouging out the substance. Films of the mountains in winter were highlights of the hour. Slow motion film of skiers on the trails and slopes were like a ballet. There was one awesome but beautiful sequence showing an avalanche. It was an educational hour which would have been interesting to younger viewers if it had been broadcast at an earlier hour. U I D A M A S C U S , MD.
