Unhealthy bird droppings
from roofs of Law School
By JUDITH RUSKIN
It was like a scene from a bad science
fiction movie: men in yellow helmets and
gas masks climbing in and out of windows
onto the roof of the Law School.
But instead of fighting strange beings
from another p 1 a n e t, these men were
cleaning the law school of pigeon drop-
According to William Pierce, associate
dean of the law school the strange task
was initiated because "perhaps one or
more members of the Law School com-
munity has encountered health difficul-
ties because of the presence of pigeons
and their aftermath" on the Law School
The workmen, a crew from the plant
department's roofing division, were clean-
ing the roof and spraying the area with
a disinfectant, Roman cleanser, which is
a form of laundry detergent not harm-
ful to human beings.
The masks were used to preoe it t h e
men from inhaling contaminsted d ust
arising from the droppings.
All faculty and staff were advised to
keep their windows shut and their a i r
conditioners off to prevent the dust from
entering the building. One Law School
employe complained, saying thal0 wth his
window closed he could not get out onto
the roof to take walks.
't'he symptoms of the alleged pigeon
disease were described by ietce as
"similtr to a prolonged cold or a mild
case of the flu. In all probability, symp-
toms will be recognized because they tend
to last for a two or three week period'
Once the roof has been cleaned, it 'ill
be sprayed with Avitrol, a chem cat used
to keep pigeons from returnin to the
same roost. The chemical affects the nerv-
ous system of the birds, makiuy I tI e m
frighten other birds away.
