Threats force him off board


By TED LOUD The Register

i A member of the county Board of Social Services says he will resign from his post, citing threats to '.himself and his family in the wake of the firing of ; former board Director Louis Armour. • Dr. Sydney M. Kramer, a seven-year member of the board who served as its secretary-treasurer, said yesterday he has received telephone calls containing threats against himself and his family following the vote to remove Armour-as head of the human services agency.' In a 5-4 decision, the ™«^^^^™i^"^"^^ board voted July 2 to Immediately fire Armour . as director, a title he had .held for nine years. Kramer voted with the : majority. Kramer's resignation will become official at the board's next meeting, July 16. At that time, a Dr. Sydney M. motion to rescind the Kramer vote to fire Armour will Member, Board of Social also be offered, Kramer ' Services said. Members of the board were verbally notified of Kramer's decision yesterday. Kramer, a Little Silver resident with an optometry practice in Red Bank, stressed that his decision was a personal one. He said he hoped that by resigning, and by publicly announcing his resignation before it takes effect, he could ease the recent tensions that have arisen after the board began the process of removing Armour over charges of official misconduct and financial mismanagement. "I tried to do what I felt was in the best interests of all the citizens of Monmouth County,1' Kramer said. "I hope that the good I've done outweighs the bad." Kramer said he is reluctant to give too much publicity to the alleged threats, and said his primary concern was with protecting his family. Armour yesterday expressed "regret" at the reported threats against Kramer, arid said he did not know who was behind them.

NEW YORK — A homeless man who claimed to be following God's orders ran amok with a short sword yesterday aboard a Staten Island ferry boat, killing a man and a woman and wounding nine other passengers. The boat was carrying commuters across New York Harbor from Manhattan to Staten Island and taking visitors past the Statue of Liberty. . The rampage of indiscriminate slashing ended when a 65-year-old former policeman who happened to be aboard fired his gun toward the suspect and made him give up the sword, police said at a news conference. Among the wounded were a prominent Kansas banker and his professor wife and a visitor from Austria. Deputy Police Commissioner Richard Condon identified the suspect as Juan Goniales, 43, who told police he was homeless and was a "boat person" front Cuba Set SLASHER.

Councilman Richard Rehm said the council had bonded < 117,000 for the renovations, and the bid by Hall Construction was well within the borough's limits. "The money spent on the building is not to do anything fancy," Rehm said. "It is strictly to »nake the building sound."

The renovations include new roofing, new clapboard and other structural repairs needed to keep the building from deteriorat-

Weekend leaves many with warm feelings By DANIEL J. WAKIN Associated Press NEWARK — Americans heading home after four days of exuberant devotions to the refurbished Statue of Liberty say they are taking with them a feeling of national unity, a place in history and a sense of the value of freedom. From the entry of the first tall ship into New York Harbor to the final strains of "This Land Is Your Land" during Sunday night's closing ceremonies, the nation watched the statue's celebration and contemplated the themes Liberty Weekend evoked: immigration, opportunity, patriotism. ','lt renewed the whole spirit of what the Statue of Liberty stands for," said Mamie Poms, 45, of Chicago. "It reinforced the great heroes of liberty." Some criticized what they called the commercialism of the events, but most out-of-towners said they enjoyed the spectacle and found New York- metropolitan

area residents friendly. "It's been tremendous on an entertainment level," said 28year-old Sandy Nixon of San Antonio, Texas. "It also makes you feel proud of your country." "It's good to be a part of it," said Bob Mickus, a 21-year-old from Boulder, Colo., waiting for a flight home Sunday night at a crowded Newark International Airport. "I was impressed by all the different types of people in this country. Although it's one country, it seems like more," said Mickus, a first-generation American of Lithuanian extraction. "It was kind of good to see everybody patriotic," added Ken Lambrecht, his 21-year-old friend from the University of Colorado whose parents emigrated from West Germany. Also boarding a flight was Joe Mobley, a tomato fanner from Tampa, HI a., who came with his wife and 14-year-old daughter. He said they waited in line for three hours to climb the Statue of Liberty Sunday. "It's really important to see it,"

Now comes cleanup time By M M MeHUflH Associated Press NEWARK — With Liberty Weekend now history, the planners of one of New Jersey's biggest parties ever yesterday turned their attention to cleaning up the trash and paying the bills. With literally dozens of agencies involved, officials could offer no total estimate of what the Statue of Liberty's lavish 100th birthday party cost New Jersey. But whatever the price of the four-day festivities, all seemed to agree they were worth it. "It was probably the greatest display of history in the making we've ever seen," said state he said. "Now they say it's going to last for many years. I think that's really Important."

police Superintendent Col. Clinton L. Pagano. Pagano said New Jersey taxpayers would pay "virtually nothing" over what they normally pay for the state police, even though 1,600 of the division's 2,200 officers were stationed In Liberty State Park in Jersey City for the weekend. In addition, troopers patrolled the Liberty Weekend closing ceremonies on Sunday at the' Meadowlands Sports Complex. Troopers patrolling state highways were extra busy with holiday traffic. Pagano said he was able to keep overtime costs down by shifting officers from one area of the state to another. "We were prepared for any eventuality," he said. Overall, he said, "the weekend expressed the feeling of liberty, of freedom within," and showed that

people thought it was Important to participate. "When you're there with all the crowds — they're part of us — you dive right in with them," said Mobley, 39. Passenger Robin Golum touched on the theme of opportunity. "It's great that we can do It and have a good time and show that America Is a melting pot, and everybody can do everything they want," said the 28-year-old registered nurse from Cleveland. For others, the weekend's value lay in the lesson of the Immigrant experience. "It's a good opportunity for the kids to realize that almost everyone's roots are somewhere else," said Karen Kunisch, a Girl Scout leader from Allendale who brought scouts to the closing ceremonies in Giants Stadium in East Rutherford. "We felt this was the chance of a lifetime," she said. Gerry Repole, an assistant Scout leader, added: "Along with the commercialization, they also showed brotherhood and sis-

terhood ... it showed people really care." But Edna Siegel of Harding Township said "the original purpose was lost" because of mixture of TV revenues and product endorsements used to finance the $30 million weekend of events. For others, particularly some blacks, the celebration only highlighted the painful legacy of racism. "What does the Statue of Liberty mean to me?" said Warren Dews of Bronx, N.Y. "It means nothing. I don't feel free yet." However, said his wife Barbara, "I feel proud to be an American. There's a lot to thank God for." Marjorie Jenner of Bellevue, Wash., whose son was in a closing ceremonies marching band, described her husband's reaction: "My husband said it's the first time he's been to something that's 'Rah, rah, I'm an American,' Instead of, 'Down with the Republicans or down with the Democrats.' It was a moving experience."

Report says Ciba-Geigy Camden, East Orange to get most of state aid package to move plant to Ala. McINTOSH, Ala. (AP) — City officials yesterday said they were unaware of problems involving one of Ciba-Geigy Corp.'s troubled New Jersey operations, which the company plans to transfer to south Alabama. The Advertiser in Montgomery reported that Ciba-Geigy, a Swiss chemical and pharmaceutical manufacturer, will scale down operations in Toms River and over the next three years move many of the plant's functions to Mclntosh, in southwest Alabama. In addition to four indictments alleging criminal wrongdoing at the New Jersey facility, residents and environmental groups have criticized the plant. • The company has run a pipeline 10 miles from the plant to the Atlantic Ocean, where wastes are discharged 2,600 f,eet off a crowded beach. • Terrel Dougherty, mayor of ticlntosh in WEEhlngton County, said he was unaware of any problems at the Toms River Operation. He said Ciba-Geigy since 1962 has operated a pesticide and herbicide plant in Mclntosh. The plant Is listed as one of

Alabama's nine hazardous waste sites slated for cleanup under the federal Superfund program administered by the Environmental Protection Agency. Hilda Woodyard, secretarytreasurer of Mclntosh's industrial development board, said the committee in June approved a $50 million bond for modernization at the existing Ciba-Geigy plant. She said another $50 million bond likely will pass next year. Woodyard said she also had not heard of problems involving the New Jersey facility. "I'm not aware of anything involving that at all," she said. Four Ciba-Geigy executives were indicted in October 1985 on 35 criminal counts involving the alleged illegal storage of hazardous wastes at the Toms River site and for allegedly comspiring to deceive state agencies, the New Jersey attorney general's office said. Ciba-Geigy spokesmen said tiic company lies cleaned up its New Jersey operations, and the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection agreed that things are improving. "The violations took place over the past 10 years," said Robert Candido, supervisor of

environmental protection in the. attorney general's office in New Jersey. Last year, Ciba-Geigy was ordered to pay a $1.45 million fine, including $200,000 to the New Jersey Department of En-' vironmental Protection, for Illegally storing hazardous wastes at Toms River. New Jersey authorities and environmentalists said they believe Ciba-Geigy may be moving its dye and additive manufacturing operations from Toms River to Alabama partially to avoid New Jersey's tough environmental laws. "What a lot of them -say is that 'We'll go down South and show you,'" said Jim Staples, a spokesman for the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection. "I should think they'd get their backs up down there. It's been the case of cheaper labor and less stringent regulations." Lisa Bunin, an ocean pollution expert with Greenpeace, the international group known for protesting nuclear testing and pollution, said Ciba-Geigy is guilty of environmental neglect. "They're taking a lousy operation and moving It. to Alabama," she said.

Housing group sets up task forces TRENTON (AP) — The Council on Affordable Housing yesterday created seven task forces that will tackle different aspects of the agency's housing program proposal, a spokeswoman for the agency said. " The committees will be composed of members of the council and the public, said spokeswoman Sldna* Mitchell. The nine-member council was created by the state last summer as an alternative to the extensive litigation filed since the court's Mount Laurel II decision in 1983. The agency has been meeting regularly since October. In its Mount Laurel I'decision in 1975 and again in Mount Laurel II, the New Jersey Supreme Court

ruled that communities cannot use zoning to exclude low- and moderate-income housing. In its second ruling, the court said municipalities must provide their "fair share" of such housing. The court ruled again in February that the council was better equipped than the courts to settle housing disputes, and 115 Mount Laurel challenges to zoning laws will be resolved by the agency. The council has until Aug. 4 to develop criteria for establishing affordable housing in the state's 567 municipalities. The program will include affordable housing quotas and procedures for mediating disputes. * A proposed plan was Issued by the council in May, followed by three public hearings.

2 dead, 4 hurt in Route 9 accident


AYREVILLE (AP) — At least two people were killed and four others injured yesterday when a gasoline tanker truck rah over and crushed three cars on Route 9 near the Edison Bridge, forcing the closure of northbound lanes and backing up traffic for more than two miles, police said. "The traffic was stopped northbound and the truck just went up over the cars and finally ended up pinning one against the guardrail," said borough police Chief Donald Sprague. He said the tanker had also sideswiped a flatbed truck. Sprague said police were having a difficult time clearing the scene and northbound traffic was backed up at least two miles. The four-lane highway remained closed to northbound traffic more than 3Vi hours after the 12:28 p.m. accident and motorists were rerouted onto Route 36. "It's a real mess," said police Lt. Richard Vadan.

"Now we've got cars o v erheating, becoming disabled," said Sprague. Vadan said the accident, about 600 feet short of the bridge that spans the Raritan River, caused the tanker to rupture and spill gasoline, but there was no fire. Sprague said the fatalities, who were not immediately identified, were in the first and third cars the tanker hit. He said he did not know in what vehicles the Injured motorists were riding. A Parlin man and his 7year-old son who were critically injured in the crash were taken by helicopter to the trauma unit of University Hospital in Newark. Hospital spokeswoman Travel Barber identified them as Ismael Gonzalez, 36, and his son Ernie. Two other accident victims were taken to Perth Amboy Hospital, where they were in satisfactory condition awaiting X-rays, said hospital spokeswoman Christine Butler. , .

Newark driver charged in crashes


EW YORK (AP) — A runaway truck with an alleged drunken driver smashed three other vehicles on the Upper West Side, flipping a van on its side yesterday afternoon and.fatally pinning a pedestrian against a car stopped at a red light, police said. Four others were Injured In the wild series of crashes, which began around 1 p.m. at West 87th Street and ended three blocks north on West End Avenue, said police spokesman Officer Robert Fitzpatrick. According to Fitzpatrick, the truck driver, identified as Daniel Thacker, 42, of Newark, first sideswiped a parked car on West 87th Street and West End Avenue and continued heading north. The truck then smashed into a small van stopped at a light a block north, flipping the vehicle on its side, and continued driving until it rearended a Mazda stopped at the light at West 80th Street, he said. A pedestrian walking behind

the stopped car was pinned against it, and the truck pushed the small Mazda about 76 feet before coming to a stop, Fitzpatrick said. The pedestrian, a man, was dead at the scene. A man and a woman who were Injured In the Mazda were taken to St. Luke's Hospital in serious condition, he said. Officer Louis LJanes, another spokesman, identified them yesterday evening as Demetrlc Wheeler, 20, and his passenger, Karen Simmons, 26, both of Manhattan. A man and woman in the van suffered minor injuries, and were treated and released at Roosevelt Hospital. LJanes said the d r i v e r w a s Paul Mnstrangello, 42, of Hillside, N.J. Thacker, who was not injured, was taken to the 28th Precinct and charged with driving while intoxicated and leaving the scene of an accident, Fitzpatrick said. Additional charges were pending, he said.

Jersey City officer shot in face ERSEY CITY (AP) — A 17year veteran of the police force remained in satisfactory condition in a hospital yesterday after receiving a shotgun blast in the face. The man suspected of firing at Officer Ronald Hatfield was immediately shot to death by the officer's partners. Hatfield was at Jersey City Medical Center with pellet and glass wounds to his face and neck, hospital officials said. Hudson County Prosecutor Paul DePascale identified the dead man as Alexander Milaszewski, 59, who lived in an apartment building at 219 Montgomery St., where the officers responded shortly before 10 p.m. to a report of gunshots being fired from a window. Hatfield and another officer saw Milaszewski hanging out a second-floorwindow and holding a shotgun, DePascale said.


He said the officers talked Milaszewski into coming downstairs, but then the suspect opened a door to the apartment building near City Hall and fired a blast through an outer glass door. Hatfield was hit by shotgun pellets and shattered glass, and was knocked back about 5 feet, DePascale said. The other police officers returned fire, killing Milaszewski, he said. DePascale said authorities didn't know why Milaszewski was shooting out the window. Joan Cleary, a supervisor at Jersey City Medical Center, said the police officer had been shot in the left side of the face and was in stable condition. "He's awake and alerl. It didn't hit anything vital," said Cleary. The prosecutor said officials had not yet determined who fired the shot that killed Milaszewski.

TRENTON — A program to reduce the growing backlog of criminal sentencing appeals does not violate a convict's right to due process and equal protection under the law, the New Jersey Supreme Court unanimously ruled yesterday. The program, which began on a four-month trial basis In March 1984, allowed state appeals court judges to rule on some appeals after hearing arguments without benefit of legal briefs submitted by attorneys. The court unanimously upheld the program as constitutional. The program, now permanent, was designed to clear a mushrooming inventory of appeals brought on behalf of criminal defendants who claimed their sentences were excessive. The Supreme Court agreed with

the Appellate Division of Superior Court and affirmed the 20-year sentence Imposed on Gary Blanco, 25, of Newark, who had pleaded guilty to first-degree robbery. "Defendant had a meaningful opportunity to present his case. He was represented by counsel who was given the opportunity at oral argument to raise any issue of excessive sentencing that he desired," said Associate Justice Marie L. Garibaldi, who wrote the court's 7-0 opinion. • "The oral argument was not abbreviated or restricted, except as provided under court rules, and the Appellate Division carefully reviewed the sentencing issue," she said in explaining that his due process rights were met. Bianco and his mother, Nancy, were charged with two counts of conspiracy to commit robbery and two counts of first-degree robbery. The charges stemmed from their Aug. 15, 1982, abduction of a 69-year-old woman from a supermarket parking lot in

Kearny, the court said. Bianco drove the victim several blocks away and released her after robbing her of $330, the court said. He pleaded guilty to firstdegree robbery on June 20,1983, and the remaining charges against him were dropped. He was ordered to serve 20 years in prison with a 10-year period of parole ineligibility. Bianco appealed, challenging the length of his sentence. As part of the Appellate Division's Excessive Sentencing Oral Argument Program, a two-judge panel of the appeals court heard arguments and affirmed his conviction and sentence. The program was created because of a growing concern about a mounting backlog and delays — sometimes up to four years — in the processing of criminal appeals, the Supreme Court said. "The very real fear was that some defendants might fully serve an illegal or excessive sentence

before the sentence was subject to appellate review," the court s a t t b When the speedy appeal pNtf gram was created, 608 excessiv*. sentence cases were pending, the court said. The Supreme Court . Blanoo's contention that the ] gram violated his right to « , _ protection under the law by treating poor defendants differently than others. All but one of the 990 cases handled by the program were cases handled by the public defender's office. "While we see no intent to; create a subclass, we recognize that the practical effect may have been to create one. Nonetheless1, we hold that the classification was rationally related to a legitimate. state interest," the court said. ' The court said the purpose of the program "was to help defendants, the majority of whom are indigent, by alleviating the inordinate delays in appellate r e view." V

No such thing as a healthy tan Doctors say cases of skin cancer growing rapidly By NICHOLAS 8 . K A T S M E L M Associated Press

More than 40 percent of comers to a New Jersey .hospital for a recent free screening were diagnosed as having some form of skin cancer, evidence that the disease is on the rise and there's "no such thing as a healthy tan," physicians said Monday. "The deeper the tan, the more dangerous it is," said Dr. Alissa Fox, a Branchburg dermatologist who helped perform the June 14 screening at the Hunterdon Medical Center. Of the 102 people examined, 44 of them were diagnosed as suffering from some form of skin cancer, said hospital spokeswoman Virginia Champion. Four of the people were found to have melanoma, the most serious form. Melanoma can spread quickly through the body and cause death. Signs Include moles that change colors, grow and/or bleed. The other forms of skin cancer are basal-cell carcinoma, slow-growing transluscent bumps on areas of the body exposed to the sun, and squamous-cell carcinoma, pink or gray crested patches appearing on sites of previous sunburns. Those two forms are much less serious, though squamous-cell can also be terminal. Champion said the screening results can be explained by the large number of fair-skinned county residents of Irish, Scottish and northern European descent. She added that

people in the United States develops melanoma, and that one in 400 die from it. i

« 'It's serious if it's not treated appropriately. It can kill.» »

Reported cases of melanoma, have Jumped 760 percent in the last 60 years, said Lewis.,

the sample could also have been biased because those who sought the testing may have thought they had some form of cancer. But Dr. David Lewis, another dermatologist who helped conduct the study, noted that cases of skin cancer are on the rise nationwide, a trend he attributed to a variety of factors. One is the thinning of the ozone layer, which helps screen dangerous ultraviolet rays from penetrating the Earth's atmosphere. A second is the nation's obsession with tanning. "We spend more time in the sun than other generations," he said. The problem is also endemic to a more affluent society, said Lewis, noting that people with money tend to take more vacations, especially to warm, sunny climates.

The cases of all skin cancers being reported ! are "just the tip of the Iceberg," said Dr. Paul • Wallner, chief of the Department of Radiation .

'Supercomputer' goes on line this week PRINCETON (AP) — A $10 million "supercomputer," capable of speeding through complex matrices in a single bound, makes its premiere this week at a computer center near Princeton University, a spokesman said yesterday. The CYBER 206 computer at the John von Neumann Center here chugs, along at 400 million scientific calculations per second and can simulate electronically everything from oil fields to automobile accidents. - -— "This computer can solve in two hours a problem which would have taken two years" on a regular computer, said Dennis Jennings, president of the Consortium for Scientific Computing, which manages the center. "It's like flying across the United States, compared to walking across," he said.

The center, named after the Princeton mathematician whose research helped form the groundwork for modern computers, will soon be accessible either by telephone or in person to researchers from the 13 universities In the non-profit consortium. By the end of the summer, the supercomputer will also be open to the entire academic community through a high-speed networking system, Jennings said. The flat rate for computer time will be $1,000 an hour, but he stresses that "you can get an awful lot done in an hour of computer time." For example, a researcher could set up a computer model to destroy a car, drill an oil well or test an airplane in a wind tunnel. The unadventurous could add two plus two 24 trillion times.

Nichols, who was stabbed in the abdomen, underwent exploratory surgery, but Swersie said "he's expected to do quite well." Koch said a wounded woman told him the attacker first started smacking her with the side of his sword, then turned it edge forward and slashed her in the head. He was getting ready to strike again when another woman saved her by deliberately falling atop her, the woman told Koch. She did not know the fate of her protector, the mayor said. Koch did not mention the wounded woman's name, but it appeared that he referred to Lynn Waylonis, 32, of Valhalla, N.Y., who was treated at St. Vincent's for a head injury and released.

On Friday, the source said, Texas Air raised its proposal tc $12 a share, or $314 million. Analysts have said People Express would be wise to unload Frontier Airlines, which it bought in November and which contributed $28 million to its parent's $58 million first quarter loss on revenues of $329 million. Other ways People Express could raise cash include selling its eight Boeing 747 jumbo jets, which

could yield about $10 million each. The jets cost up to $80,000 a day to operate. Another option would be selling gate positions at certain airports. Analysts said much People Express' problems were because the company expanded too quickly, moved into cities where an additional carrier was not needed and slashed fares for the summer season when it could have been making badly needed revenues.

Gasoline riskiest

Contras soldi! aid dollars for profit



B»GUVDAB8T Associated Press WASHINGTON — Although nuclear material and hazardous waste get the publicity, gasoline is the most dangerous cargo in the nation's transportation system, congressional researchers said yesterday. Gasoline accounts for half of all hazardous material carried on the highways, and its accidents result in "more deaths and damages than all other hazardous materials accidents combined," said a study by the Office of Technology Assessment. Other findings of the study: — Congress should consider a national truck driver's license for hazardous cargo, as urged by insurance and trucking groups. Sixty-two percent of hazardous cargo accidents are the result of human error. Shell Oil Co. reduced preventable accidents 58 percent by a combination driver-andequlpment improvement program, the study said. — Although federal aid to the states for truck inspections has been increasing, federal inspections of all kinds have been declining and "are now insufficient to ensure adequate inspection levels," the office said. The total time spent on inspections declined from 237 work-years in 1070 to 111 in 1084, the most recent year for which figures were available. Most gasoline traffic is within one state and not subject to direct federal regulations. The average trip is only 28 miles, in deliveries to set-vice stations, researchers said. There are 1,600 tanker spills reported each year to the Transportation Department, with- an estimated 226 tanker rollovers and 88 resulting fatalities — figures that are almost certainly drastic underestimates, according to the OTA study. These accidents could be lessened in number and severity with a better tank trailer design that has a lower center of gravity, the study said. It noted that complications such as excessive width or too much empty weight has prevented wide consideration of substitute designs proposed so far. The department is studying regulations 'to improve performance of tanks. A key finding of the study is the poor quality of accident data, and this often means that spilled gasoline is overlooked. "State and local regulations are often developed with little or no understanding of the magnitude or nature of the problems to be controlled," the OTA researchers concluded. State and local regulations usually are targeted at radioactive material, which comprises less than 3 percent of all hazardous materials shipments, and at toxic chemical waste, which comprises about 7 percent of all hazardous shipments. The Transporation Department office responsible, the Research and Special Programs Administration, relies on voluntary reporting by interstate carriers on a confusing form, the OTA report said.

GOLDEN OPPORTUNITY — The only thing rising higher than McDonald's golden arches are the profits of franchising companies.

CHICAGO (AP)—For the first time, McDonald's Corp. will distribute booklets telling fast-food fans what's in its restaurant fare, from 100 percent beef burgers to the Big Mac's 126-calorie special sauce, officials said yesterday. The world's largest fast-food restaurant chain has spent more than 11 million researching and developing the illustrated 3 7 page booklet, said Ed Rensi, president of McDonald's USA, based in Oak Brook, 111. "It's our attempt at making nutrition understandable," Rensi said in a telephone interview. "It's a good marketing program. It's a good way to sell our story... We're proud of our food. We're proud to publish this information." Some nutrition advocates criticized the booklet as propaganda that provided information that was more promotional than nutritional. McDonald's will provide 100 booklets to each of the more than 7,600 McDonald's restaurants nationwide for distribution starting Aug. 16. Customers will have to request the booklet.' After the initial 100 booklets are given out, the company's franchises would have to buy additional copies from the corporation, said spokeswoman Terri Capatosto. The first 10 pages of the booklet describe ingredients, explaining, for example, that a

cheeseburger includes ketchup, mustard, pickles, onions, salt and pepper. The rest contains specific "label declarations," describing Ingredients in a beef patty and listing the companies from which McDonald's buys its meat. These listings include the number of calories in each ingredient, such as 6 calories in a pickle slice and 126 calories in a serving of Big Mac sauce. But to find out that there are 670 calories in one Big Mac, the customer would have to add • the calories listed for each ingredient used. "The concept of it is terrific," said Mkhael Jacobson, executive director of the Center for' Science in the Public Interest In Washington D.C. ^^' But, he said, "They really hide the Ingredients behind a fog of euphemisms, exaggerations and self-serving propaganda." He cited, for example, a hamburger bun description: "Enriched wheat flour is the main ingredient in our buns —no surprise but did you know that McDonald's requires its bakers to purchase the flour enriched with OMmtiai vitamins and minerals?" While the booklet tells consumers that McDonald's uses boneless chicken breasts and thighs in its doesn't aay how much saltor cholesterol Is In each servlaJt
