Cannes festival
awards 'Missing,'

CANNES, France (UPI) - The A-
merican movie Missing was named a
co-winner of the Golden Palm award
today and its star, Jack Lemmon, was
named best actor at the 35th Cannes In-
ternational Film Festival.
Missing, based on the true story of the
abduction of an American in Chile, and
directed by the Greek-born filmmaker
Constantin Costa-Gavras, shared the
festival's top prize with the Turkish
film Yol.
The Grand Prix of the festival went to
Italy's Michelangelo Antonioni for "his
spirit of seaching and the constant
timelessness of his work."
Missing traced the kidnapping of
Charles Horman in Chile during the
overthrow of the leftist regime of
President Salvadore Allende, and the
efforts of Mrs. Horman (Sissy Spacek)
and her father-in-law (Lemmon), to
locate Horman, who was later found
Yol was produced by Yilmaz Guney,
who was convicted of murder in Turkey
and escaped from a Turkish prison.
It protrays the life of Turkey's Kur-
dish minority. Its screening during the
two-week festival touched off a noisy,
chanting demnonstration by Turkish
youths who congregated in Cannes.
The festival's best actress award
went to Jadwiga Jankowska-Cieslak of

the long term results of this will be."
Already, though, he contends that in
the U.S. the milk of many mothers is so
contaminated that it would be illegal to
sell in supermarkets.
"97 percent of Michigan residents
have PBB in their fat tissue, he con-
tinued, referring to the chemical that
inadventently found its way into
Michigan's food over a decade ago. "No
one knows its effects," he added,
because "it takes decades between ex-
posure to the chemical and the onset of
According to Regenstein, the
chemicals don't even do what they're
supposed to. "Massive use of chemical
pesticides in the long term is counter-
productive," he said. "Insects develop
immunity, and pesticides drive off the
natural enemies of insect control." He
added that "there has been a tenfold in-
crease in the use of pesticides in the last
thirty years, but crop losses to insects
have doubled.
"We can grow more food more
cheaply without poisoning the en-
vironment," he continued. "The United
States government has published
studies showing how consumers and
farmers can use integrated pest
management techniques (which may
call for some, but much less, spraying)
to reduce pesticide use 80 percent in ten
years with no reduction in current crop
However, the Reagan administraton

has not been very cooperative, said
Regenstein. "Industry has not had the
incentive to comply with the law," .he
said, citing a two year "hiatus in enfor-
cement and prosecutions" by the En-
vironmental Protection Agency (EPA).
"Throughout EPA and other
regulatory agencies," he said, "the
Reagan administration is taking the
same people who fought against in-
dustrial regulations and putting them
in charge of them. The proverbial fox is
in charge of the chicken.
Regenstein believes that most in this
country disapprove of this turnaround.
"Any poll shows," he said, that "clear
air and clean water" are near the top of
Americans' priorities. "People have
always wanted increased environmen-
tal protection regardless of cost." In
fact, he said, "a recent Harris poll
shows that 80 percent of the population
want the Clear Air Act (now up for
renewal) strengthened or kept the
"American people have to speak up,"
said Regenstein. "The system does
work," he continued, pointing out that
increased involvement in environmen-
tal groups spurred by reaction to ad-
ministration policies has begun to pay
off. "The administration is beginning to
back off on certain things. The more
pressure, the more that can be done.
"We can turn the situation around
and prevent 'America the Beautiful'
from becoming 'America the
Poisoned.' "
