The U. S. Democratic Party finds itself in an amusing quandary as its national convention, scheduled to begin on Aug. 25 in Denver, approaches. The Denver Post reported on Sunday that local caterers are having trouble adhering to environmental and health guidelines laid down by the host committee on the party's behalf. A request for proposals obtained by the Colorado paper indicates that fried foods will be banned, that all meals must be served on reusable or recyclable plates and that no individual plastic containers for drinks will be allowed.
