The tranquil summer life of residents on Magnolia Street in West
Chester, Pa. has been interrupted by a flood of dead bats plummeting from
the sky. Residents are baffled by the dozens of flying vermin -dead or near
dead-that have dropped from the air in the past week. "People are just
snoveling them up and throwing them away," resident Cindy Richardson
said Monday. The Chester County Department of Health, concerned about
health hazards posed by the dead bats, have shipped several of them off to
the state department of agriculture to check them for possible rabies. A
department spokesperson speculated a Magnolia Street resident may have
started the decline of the bats by spraying against gypsy moths. The bats, he
said, would eat the poisoned insects and become ill. [

You can save a lot of
gasoline -and a lot of
money -if you use the phone
before you use your car.
By calling ahead, you
can be sure the restaurant
is open ... the store has
what you want ... or the
friend you want to visit is
home - before you waste
time, gas and money on an
unnecessary trip. On the
average, you waste about
a dollar's worth of gas on
every unnecessary trip -
and just two wasted trips
a week can cost you more
than $100 worth of gas
Saving energy is easier
than you think, and with the
rising energy costs we're
facing today, it's never
been more important. So
the next time you pick up
your car keys and head for
the door, ask yourself
whether a phone call could
save you the trip -and
the wasted gas.
For a free booklet with
more easy energy-saving
tips, write "Energy," Box 62,
Oak Ridge, TN 37830.
We can't afford
to waste Itf.
