NEW YORK -- i . N E A ) -Watch out--we may be knee- deep in discarded packages b\ the ear 2000 That's the warning in the new packaging issue of Design Sense published by Lip- pmcott Marguiles, Inc., leading packaging design consultants. According to Design Sense, the packages we throw away will become a worrisome and major waste-disposal problem before the end of the century when our population is expected to reach 312 million. Experts in proxemics ( t h e study of tight-fit togetherness in work and residential situations* tell us people tend to cluster together. They say gieganousness is just about as instinctive for man as his drive for sex and self-preservation and 60 per cent of us will be living in less than 8 per cent of the country's land area by the year 2000 Togetherness may have its advantages, but the time may come when we'll be literally submerged in the packages we throw away Waste-disposal is already a major problem in our cities, and discarded packages form the biggest bulk of the problem. What can we do about it? Packaging e x p e r t s say ue're going to need a new kind of package, an entirely new concept of packaging with built-in "destruct" or self-disposable features. They I say package designers will have to make packages that are highly collapsible, capable i of reduction to a mere pellet oi waste. Better yet. Design Sense recommends packages that become soluble enough to be washed down the drain after treatment with a s p e c i a l chemical contained in the package itself Another solution is packages made of materials we can eat And Tabby the cat will like this one--packages made of protein material, like fish meal, that can be eaten and digested by humans and their pets. 8-21-67 (Newspaper fnterprise Assn Poverty's Spectre Perils Calcutta CALCUTTA, India (AP) -Calcutta, one o f the world's largest cities, appears to be sinking under a creeping tide of poverty, unrest, crime and human degradation. It could drag all of eastern India into chaos. Labor unrest has soared. Unemployment is reaching critical levels, industries are leaving and prospective foreign investors are being frightened off. A Communist-leftist coabtion came to power in West Bengal State last February largely on the strength of years of mounting discontent over problems existing under Congress party rule. Now the Communists have found they cannot cope wkh the enormity of difficulties here. They are victims of some of the problems they themselves created. One Western diplomat observed: "The Communists taught the young people to demonstrate. Now the Communists are in power and they are not answering any of the problems. They may not be able to turn off the agitation they created." Communists engineered the spreading practice of "gherao," which brought much vital industry to a standstill throughput tb3 state.

Labor groups for some months have gheraoed company executives, keeping them confined to their offices for days at a time. One example of this took place near Dhanbad, in the heart of the eastern India coal belt 150 miles northwest of Calcutta. Communist union leaders in-1 stigated a gherao against a fir'l- brick factory. Violence resulted and three persons were killed. Finally the management retal-' iated with a lockout, shut down operations and 800 persons were i thrown out of work. . i The newspaper Statesman re- oorts that hard-line Communists have strengthened their positions in unions throughout this coal and industrial belt. Calcutta is the hub of a four- state area which has one-fourth of India's population. Calcutta itself accounts for 15 per cent of all the country's manufactures, and 30 per cent of bank clearances. It is a city of about 7.5 million people, full of tension,' frustration and despair. A prominent Indian journalist, Chanchal Sarkar, wrote recent-1 ly: "Only a gigantic human ef-' fort to sustain Calcutta and make it grow can prevent the whole of eastern India from being plunged into trouble." Reported cases of crime have Business Review By PHIL THOMAS AP BiMiawM Writer NEW YOHK (AP) -Hairy the cave man didn't know what he was starting that day he stretched his whiskers across a log and chopped them off with a flint ax. Neither did Gen. Scipio Afri- canus, who was a pretty good soldier as well as the first Roman believed to have indulged in a daily shave. Men no longer use tweezers, clam shells or shark's teeth to remove their beards, but every morning millions of American men crawl out of bed and shave. Most of them gripe about this daily chore, but if they had chance to have their beards removed permanently they'd turn it down. The beard is a symbol o* virility to a man, says Gordon Blackwell, a New York electrol- ogist. Blackwell, who removes hair by electrolysis, says only a few men have come to him to have their beards removed. "Most men who go in for beard removal are driven to it because they get terrible skin rashes from shaving," he says. "I've only had one man come to me and have his beard removed solely because he didn't like to shave." Blackwell estimates it would lake several hundred hours to remove a normal beard. The going rate for electrolysis, he says, is about $15 an hour. Most men, however, use a rafety razor or an electric shaver to clean the bristles off their cheeks. The average man has about 30,000 hairs on his face, according to a spokesman for the Gillette Sa'ety Razor Co., a leading producer of safety razors and blades. Each of these hairs prows about one-fiftieth of an inch a day. The average man, if he begins shaving at 15 and lives the normal life soan. will cut some 27% feet of whiskers from his face over the vears, the spokesman savs, and spend about 3,350 hours or 139 davs on the job nv*»r a 5S-year period.

Gillette, which says it sold 51 razors and 14 dozen blades in ' 1903, estimates that since its lormation in 1901 it has produced more than 750 million razors and 120 billion blades. Figures for the entire industry show that Ame/icans laid out $213,640,000 for razor blades and $28,580,000 for razors in 1966, compared with $114,760,000 and $108,280,000 in 1956. The 1966 payout for shaving preparations--creams, soaps, lotions and the like--came to $194,450,000 compared with $108,280,000 a decade earlier. Although demand for electric shavers leveled off after 1957 and remained fairly static until China Plans Hong Kong By-Pass MACAO (AP) 1965, the industry now reports China is studying a plan to make this Portuguese colony the main gateway to the south coast of mainland China.

Today, at least six buildings in an upper-class residential area are complete and empty. New building has stopped and rent is dropping in the upper-and middle--class levels. Lower--class rent is moving upward, however, because of the increased demand in this area. Food prices are reaching new highs arid in many cases food is in short supply.
