Return of the native
A well-rested and suntanned troup of Daily staffers returned to their
summer home-away-from-home at 420 Maynard Street yesterday to resume
publication of this grand old newspaper after a two-week vacation. We're
glad to be back, and we're primed to offer you the best in local, national, and
international news every Tuesday through Saturday at the inflation-busting
rate of $3.50 for the summer term. If you're interested in reading the news,
call 764-0558. Those interested in reporting the news should stop at our
offices, take a look around, and chat with our award-winning staff. In either
case, we hope you have a newsworthy summer. '
Eraser restoration
What are a historical conservationalist and six assistants doing with
$250 worth of green rubber erasers? They're erasing the inside of the 123-
year-old First Congregational Church in Lee, Mass. in an effort to save its
unique wall paintings. Tucker has been working at the church for the past
five weeks, trying to remove the accumulated dirt and grime on the 12,000
square feet of the church's sanctuary. As an expert in art restoration who
-studied in Florence, Italy, she was faced with a problem: How to remove the
dirt without also taking off the water-soluble trompe l'oeil on the church's
walls and ceilings. "I worked for over three hours with everything in my test
kit," Tucket said. "Then it occurred to me to try an eraser. It went through
my mind that this was crazy, but it was just perfect." She said the secret is
to develop your own style of erasing, something she encourages among the
workers. "I gave them an esthetic standard-no streaks," she said. "Some
work better with long strokes, some with short."
Rousting roosting pigeons
Russ Barton was hired by the town of Frenchtown, N.J. to get rid of
the pigeons. For $100 per year and all the birdshot shells they need, Barton
and Glinn Hummer are doing the job. "I shoot 'em anywhere and anytime
there's a complaint, but never on a Sunday 'casue of all the people going to
church," Barton said. The two sharpshooters were retained by the Bourough
Council a few weeks back to terminate "the pigeon problem" in the rural
community of 1,500 residents. Mayor Dave Johnson said, "We've got things
pretty much under control, but the pigeons don't seem to get discouraged."1-
On the outside
The folks at the weather bureau say this morning's clouds will give
way to partly sunny skies which, combined with temperatures in the mid-
80s, should make for a beautiful afternoon. Our suggestion: Brown-bag it
today and have lunch with a friend on the Diag.
