After six months of deliberation, Baltimore's preservation commission gave conceptual approval Tuesday to an $18.5 million plan by the Mount Vernon Place Conservancy to replace trees and make other improvements to the city-owned parkland at the base of the Washington Monument, with the understanding that the group still must obtain final approval of its plan and provide proof of funding before any work can begin. In granting conceptual approval for the parkland, which is in a historic district, the commissioners voted to approve the group's plans to remove most of the trees on the public squares north and south of the Washington Monument.

Emu Speculation Will Never FlyFortunately, the eagerness of emu investors to get the emu onto the slaughterhouse floor flies in the face of reality ("Emu farming begins to take off," The Sun, Dec. 12).As the American Veterinary Medical Association and other analysts have pointed out, the emu business is a pyramid structure consisting almost entirely of speculation in breeding stock.When this pyramid collapses, thousands of investors will lose their fortunes and thousands of emus will be killed to cut losses, since virtually no progress has been made toward actually developing a consumer market for emu, ostrich or any other flesh derived from the ratites, or flightless fowl.
