Kea Tawana stands on a roof top next to the ark he is building from scraps of lumber in the lot of a Baptist church in Newark, N.J.
Tawana said he hopes to have the craft completed by spring so that he can sail away, because "things have gotten so

Morelli's replaces Pizza Bob's
By RACHEL GOTTLIEB
Chocolate chip milkshake junkies and Chapatti addicts
who may have panicked at the closing of Pizza Bob's Mid-
town Cafe will still be able to get their sugar and salad fixes
under the restaurant's new ownership.
Alex Altier bought Pizza Bob's at 618 Church St. and this.
month opened Morelli's, an Italian restaurant.
OLD PIZZA Bob favorites such as shakes or chapattis, a
salad sandwich, will remain on Morelli's menu, but they will
be improved, said Altier.
A few new shake flavors will be added such as pineapple-
coconut and the size of chapattis will be increased, Altier said.
Morelli's will also feature Italian food and chili, he said.
Former owner Tim Seaver said he sold the Midtown Cafe
and the Pizza Bob's on State Street near Packard Road to
concentrate on his Mexican restaurant Tijuana Bob's.
Last year, Seaver sold Pizza Bob's on State Street to Bob
Cranson who also bought the trademark name. Cranson said
he paid extra for the "Pizza Bob's" name because he "wan-
ted the reputation,"of the restaurant.
But Altier wants to make some changes with Morelli s
while keeping some of the traditional items on the menu.
Customers can still expect the same late hours and
delivery service that former Pizza Bob's maintained, said
The restaurant will be open until 1 a.m. on Weekdays, and 2
a.m. on weekends.
the sugar substitute that's feeding the
American craving for low-calorie
sweets, is souring some consumers
because it can decompose into poten-
tially harmful chemicals.
But federal scientists who approved
its use in soft drinks last summer
discount that concern and still say it is
"safe, even at extraordinary abuse
The sweetener was approved by the
Food and Drug Administration in 1981
for use in dry food and beverage
products and as a tabletop sugar sub-
stitute. In July 1983, the FDA expanded
the use of aspartame to soft drinks,
which are ' the most lucrative low-
ASPARTAME is an intensely sweet
substance 180 to 200 times sweeter than
sugar, so a little goes a long way.
Unlike saccharin, its predecessor in the
low-calorie sweetener market, aspar-
tame does not have an aftertaste.
Every major soft drink company now
mixes aspartame with saccharin,
which is less expensive, for use in diet
The product, made by G.D. Searle of
Skokie, Ill., was quick to take hold. The
company reports that 50" million
Americans use it in one form or
THE AGRICULTURE DEPAR-
TMENT reports that sugar consum-
ption is dropping. Last year;
Americans consumed 71 pounds -of
sugar per person on average, as against
100 pounds in 1973. But Americans con-
sumed aspartame at levels that are the
equivalent of two pounds per capita in
1983. This quantityis projected to rise
to three pounds in 1984 and five pounds '
Low-calorie soft drinks accounted for
15 to 20 percent of the soft drink market'
in 1983. That share is projected to rise
to 20 to 25 percent this year,, and nearly
all of the increase will be attributable to
the use of aspartame, the Agriculture
The company and the FDA contend
that the issue of decomposition is not
new and provides little reason for con-
The new worries about aspartame
were touched off by an Arizona State
,University researcher's concern that,
aspartame in soft drinks would break +
down into methanol when stored at high
temperatures. Summer temperatures
in Arizona can reach 120 degrees;
aspartame breaks down into methanol
at 86 degrees.
Methanol, which has caused cancer
in lab animals when inhaled in large
quantities; can further decompose into
formaldehyde, a proven I carcinogen
when inhaled. '

aside from several overworked furnace
motors and alarm systems malfun-

heard of too many problems connected
with the cold. But a small fire did result
when a man tried to thaw his frozen
pipes with a blow torch, he added.
INONE OF the few positive aspects
of the cold wave, French said that com-

That's little comfort for someone like

"You can say anything bad about the
cold that you want to," said Hannah,
who comes from Lebanon, where he
said, "there is no cold."
The battle'to keep warm took many
different forms in town, from Pizzeria
Uno, where customers resolutely kept
their coats on inside the restaurant, to
Bivouac, a clothing store on State St.,
where cold weather clothing is a hot-
selling item, especially earmuffs.
"Ever since the first snow, we've
been selling millions of earmuffs," said
Jacobson's reported that they have
been out of earmuffs since Christmas.
And dessert fiends are finding they
must hold back on some of life's cooler
treats. Baskin-Robbins ice cream
parlour on the corner of East and South
University streets said ice cream sales
were down yesterday beyond the nor-
mal winter slump.
The worst of the cold should be over
now, according to the National Weather
Service, as the temperature is expected
to reach the high-teens today, and con-
tinue to warm through the week.
The nuclear-powered'fast attack submarine, the USS Augusta, slides into the
waters of the Thames -River in Groton, Conn. yesterday during launching
ceremonies. The Augusta - named after the capital of Maine- is designed to
hunt enemy surface ships and subs.
