  • Description

    IN SECAUCUS, NEW JERSEY, TODAY, THE SPOT LIGHT FOCUSED ON PIGS, ANIMALS FOR WHICH THE AREA HAS LONG BEEN FAMOUS.

    BUT, AFTER MID-NIGHT PIGS WILL BE SWINUS NON GRATA. ACTING ON A REQUEST BY THE STATE HEALTH DEPARTMENT. THE COURTS HAVE ORDERED ALL SECAUCUS PARTS CLOSED BY TOMORROW. FARMERS, WHO STAY, PAGE CONTEMPT OF COURT CHARGES. THEY ARE TIGHT-LIPPED ABOUT THE SITUATION, SO WE INTERVIEWED EX-PIG MAN, HENRY KREWSJESKI (CQ), ONE-TIME PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE ON HIS OWN TICKET AND NOW RUNNING FOR SENATOR.

    TWENTY PIGGERIES STILL REMAIN IN SECAUCUS TONIGHT. WILL THEY BE OPEN TOMORROW WE COULDN'T FIND OUT FOR SURE...NO ONE IS SQUEALING.

    (FILM OUT)
    ******* AND *******
    'EVER DRIVE ACROSS THE MEADOWS OF NORTHERN NEW JERSEY ON A WARM SPRING EVENING WITH THE WINDOWS OF YOUR CAR WIDE OPEN AND YOUR NOSTRILS EAGERLY SHIPPING THE BREEZE! FRIEND: TAKE MY ADVICE. CLOSE YOUR WINDOWS. THE PIGS ARE STILL AROUND.

    IN THE SHADOW OF THE SKY-SCRAPERS ON MANHATTAN'S FIFTH AVENUE STANDS SECAUCUS, NEW JERSEY.

    AS LONG AS ANYONE CAN REMEMBER, THERE HAVE BEEN PIGS IN SECAUCUS...PIGS WITH NO RESPECT FOR WARM SPRING EVENINGS AND THE COMMUTERS, WHO DRIVE PAST THEM ON NEARBY HIGHWAYS AND ON THE NEW JERSEY TURNPIKE.

    THE SPEED LIMIT ON THE TURNPIKE IS 60 MILES AN HOUR. RARE IS THE DAY WHEN A DRIVER DOESN'T GRIMLY KEEP HIS FOOT ON THE ACCELERATOR...INTENT ON ESCAPING FROM WHAT THE PIGS OF SECAUCUS ARE BROADCASTING ACROSS THE MEADOWS...

    THIS WEEK-END, ACCORDING TO MUNICIPAL LAW, THE PIGS WERE TO HAVE BEEN EVACUATED, BUT OUT CAMERAMAN BROUGHT BACK EVIDENCE THAT THEY'RE STILL AROUND...STILL VERY MUCH AROUND...

    IN 1959, SPRING WILL AGAIN COME TO THE MEADOWS OF NORTHERN NEW JERSEY.

    THE SNOW WILL MELT AND THE GREENERY WILL SPROUT ON THE MARSHES. THE BIRDS WILL SING.

    BUT AGAIN, CAR WINDOWS WILL BE ANGRILY SHUT. AND MOTORISTS WILL AGAIN STEP ON THE GAS...IF THE PIGS ARE STILL THERE...IN SECAUCUS, NEW JERSEY.
