Crowds poured out of chur- tesand into department stores id shopping centers through- tt the state, with proprietors iticing shoppers with bands, imes, candy, and puppet ows to turn the end of the tritan tradition into a gala casion. “If you’re going to church tu go in the morning. If you int to shop you go in the after noon,” said Evelyn Hinkley of Gloucester, who attended ser vices before showing up at a sub urban mall. “It shouldn’t be a crime for Massachusetts citizens to go shopping on Sundays,” state Rep. Timothy Bassett, D-Lynn, who spearheaded the move to repeal the antiquated law, said as he cut the red ribbon. Bassett predicted the extra day of shopping will generate up to 15,000 new jobs, $44 million in new tax revenues and $1.3 billion in sales. Under the new law, liquor stores are still not allowed to open, and no beer or wine may be sold at markets. a t m CAMPUS Walk, Cycle, or Shuttle.

OPEN Monday through Friday 10:45 AM-1:45 PM QUALITY FIRST Feds ignore report of dioxin in lakes United Press International WASHINGTON — EPA offi cials urged in a 1981 draft re port that fishing in the Great Lakes be banned because of dioxin contamination, but the federal government did little to discourage fishing, agency offi cials say. Regional Environmental Pro tection Agency officials in Chi cago recommended in the re port in the spring of 1981 that Great Lakes fishing be stopped because the potential cancer risks were too high, sources said. But scientists at the agency’s headquarters — along with for mer assistant administrator John Todhunter — eliminated the reference, agreeing the deci sion should be left to the Food and Drug Administration, the sources said. Agency officials sharply criti cized the resulting FDA stan dard that oncludes there is neg ligible health risk to persons who eat a weekly meal of fish con taminated with dioxin at levels of 25 parts per trillion or less, and minimal risk to those who eat fish once a week at levels under 50 parts per trillion. EPA scientists projected in 1981 that those people face a cancer risk ranging from 1 in 100 to 1 in 1,000 from ingestion of the chemical, minute amounts of which have caused cancer in laboratory animals. One official familiar with the assessment termed the pro jected risks “incredibly high,” although acknowledging it was not quite as high as the health threat faced by people exposed to dioxin in parts of Missouri. The 1981 EPA assessment, a copy of which was obtained by UPI, was prepared by Donald Barnes and Paul Brown, co- chairmen of EPA’s Chlorinated Dioxins Working Group. It noted the FDA “has infor mally pointed to 100 parts per trillion as a level of concern” — a level that would pose a cancer risk of 1 in 100. Sanford Miller, director of the FDA’s Bureau of Foods, ack nowledged the FDA eventually decided dioxin levels of 50 parts per trillion or higher were too dangerous for human consump tion — levels still higher than those recommended by EPA sci entists. Miller stressed the federal government has no authority to ban fishing in state waters but said the FDA has banned fish sale in interstate commerce of fish taken from contaminated areas. He said the FDA has urged governors of Michigan and other states bordering the Great Lakes to ban fishing in areas where dioxin levels of 50 parts per trillion or higher are de tected. Dioxin contamination of the Great Lakes drew attention in 1980, when the Canadian gov ernment notified the United States high levels of the toxic chemical were found in herring gull eggs in Lake Huron and Lake Ontario. gj jj • |f I: i u , THE MILLER BREWING COMPANY PRESENTS...
