MONDAY, JULY i, im ALTON EVENING PAGE A-3 WHAT'S REAL? - Just pigs that crashed someone's Fourth of July picnic, or do the pigs symbolize careless picnickers? The photographer forgot to say, but that's just the point of a national anti-litter campaign being sponsored locally by Owens-Illinois. Pigs or People? The Fourth of July, picnics and Utter, people and pigs, seem to go together, or at least that seems to be the idea behind the holiday anti-Utter campaign of Keep America Beautiful, Inc. The national litter prevention organization is stressing the point that Jitter may be all right for pigs but not for people in a current nation - wide campaign. Owens • Illinois is helping the promote the message locally in a special area wide promotion campaign in cooperation with KAB. The company program is part of a national glass container industry drive against littering during the week of July 1. The anti - litter, people- pig campaign includes a one-minute TV public service film featuring pigs wallowing through litter on a city street, highway, beach and picnic area. At no time are people shown in the film spots. Similar campaign ads are also appearing in newspapers and magazines across the country. The TV film opens with pigs crossing a city street as they leave a trail of litter behind. It also shows scenes of pigs relaxing amidst litter on a beach and .romping in a Jittered picnic area. A highway sequence, with pigs simulating heavy traffic on littered pavements, dramatizes the Jitter problem -on the country's highways, according to KAB. .'•:•• Action of the .pigs is ac- compannied by dubbed- in'sounds of human voices.
