(Sun staff by Angle Bracey) Cities compete in clean up drive - AUSTIN (AP) — They're pickling up fertilizer sacks in 'Whitewright. They're finding old -love letters in the litter piles of Muenster. They're shaping up the ship channel in Houston. Texans in 191 cities are cleaning up their hometowns in an ef- '. fort to get some of the $700,000 in ".landscaping the state is offering as an incentive. The prizes, offered this year for the first time, have made a big difference in a program that began in 1969. , "We've seen a 1,000 percent increase in entries," said Mary Ellen Shoop, executive director of Keep Texas Beautiful, which is coordinating the effort. The contest is divided into eight categories. For example, 55 cities with population up to 2,500 are competing for 820,000 worth of highway department landscaping. On the other end, four cities with more than 300,000 people are competing for $285,000 in landscaping. "This is money that had been spent on picking up litter on the highways. Instead of using it to pick up litter, they decided to try to put it into prevention," Ms. Shoop said. The winners will be announced in June. The judges will look at cities' litter education programs, clean-up projects, litter law enforcement and other criteria. Muenster insurance agent Gary Fisher is the head of Operation Clean Sweep in his Cooke County town of 1,410 near the Oklahoma border. They take their litter seriously in Muenster, which has a particular problem with liquor bottles. "We're a wet town in a dry county," Fisher said. The "March Against Trash" in March netted 8,000 pounds of picked-up Utter, including "everything from fish heads, billfolds, $20 bills," he said. "We found mostly the trash that blows out of the back of pick-up trucks. We found a love letter written by a local girl and she's not married to the guy she wrote it to. It was written in 1955. It came out of a pick-up on the way to the dump," Fisher said. The city of Whitewright, near Sherman in Grayson County-, is competing in the same category as Muenster. Martha Dollarhide is in charge of the Whitewright effort. "We have a committee of five people and we wrote everybody in town a letter and asked them if they would check the things they felt they could do to help," she said.
