    Background: On Monday (August 24), the smoke-filled air at Chicago's O'Hare International Airport was a bit cleaner than usual. Eastern Air Lines flight number 614 from New Orleans came in and took off with hardly a trace of smoke - it is the first plane of the fleet to be equipped with a smoke-abatement device.

    A spokesman for the airline said that the aircraft has ben fully equipped with "burner cans" which bring about greater combustion of jet fuel and nearly eliminate the smoke, which was hardly visible when the plane took off.

    The anti-pollution device is the beginning of a vast smoke-abatement programme. Other airlines have also begun to convert their engines, since Federal and state authorities have said that all airplanes must be equipped with anti-pollution by 1972.
