Nevada Evening Gazette (Newspaper) - January 21, 1976, Reno, Nevada Follows Cannon speech in Chicago United chairman promises Reno review ;The top executive of United Airlines, in response to urgings from Sen. Howard Cannon, D-Nev., for better air service to Reno, said United's schedule to Northern Nevada will be reviewed. Cannon addressed a luncheon meeting of the top executives of United in Chicago Tuesday and pushed for more flights to the Reno area. Edward E. Carlson, chairman of United Air Lines Inc., said he would look into the matter, but he did not specify how any re-evaluation would be conducted, a spokesman for the airline said toda.v. No concrete measures have been taken since the speech to assess the situation. Cannon's comments on increased air service to Reno were just a part of a speech which included his views on government de- regulation and the possibility of constructing an American supersonic plane, the United spokesman said. Reno businessmen responded en- thusiastically to Cannon's recommendation for greater service. "We are pleased that the senator is in- terested in better air said Ron Smith of the Greater Reno Chamber of Commerce. "We are in whole-hearted agreement with him" Smith felt Cannon's speech could have a great impact on the future of Reno air tran- sportation. "We feel this is a very major step, because of the senator's position in the Smith said. "He is considered Mr Aviation. "The senator is the most important person in the Senate on airline service and hopefully this will be just the first volley." Smith said United has done an adequate job in its service to Reno, but he still hopes for increased service from the air carrier. But the chamber does not plan to discuss the issue of additional service because of an airline meeting Jan. 30 where United is ex- pected to announce new routes to Reno. Cannon's plea for greater service from United was also interpreted as a recom- mendation that other airlines add to their present routes. Western Airlines is indirectly addressed in the speech, Smith said. "And we (the chamber) truly think Western is the culprit Travel agent Vern Durkee Sr. also expressed delight over Cannon's speech. ''I thought it was great that he told it like it Durkee said. "People in this community are pleased he is concerned. page 2, coL 3 RENO EVENING GAZETTE One-hundredth Year No. 255 A Speidel Newspaper Reno, Nevada, Wednesday, January 20 Cents fan They agree with Jones Dear Poll: I feel the same as Mr. Jones on the subject. As far as activities for young people are concerned, Reno is DEAD head beat and Low Ride. The only time when there is something to do js when a few local bands throw a free Park Concert, and this is very rare and mostly in the summer. I propose A Hall, something, like the Old Door where Bands have to Rent the Place and There is Dancing and everybody is Happy! 'The Allman Brothers' EDITOR'S NOTE: Above is the first of the letters to a Gazette-Journal poll asking young men and women to comment about what, if anything, is happening for persons under 21 in Nevada towns. The point was made by Nevada basketball player Edgar Jones in a story published Monday that unlike his hometown, Newark, N.J., there's not much for teen-agers to do in Reno. Teens' views will be published, with emphasis on their ideas on how Nevada hometowns might be made more interesting for their young men and women. Discotheque offers open door policy to Reno aroa toons ByTOMMcGUIRE One night a week, David Yori does something for teen-agers. The Reno discotheque entrepreneur turns his night club over to them for five hours each Monday night. For the past month, Yori's Disco 2000 on Kietzke Lane has been one place for the younger crowd to gather, to meet, mingle and dance. "We had 350 in here last Yori said. But that number, while making the night club crowded inside, still represents less than 1 per cent of the total adolescent population in the Reno- Sparks area. Still, it's a beginning Even though Yori contends he is not making money off the set-up am paying the bills, but that's about he is considering a twice-a-week operation this summer. "I grew up in he said in an interview, implying he knows very well what it's like to be under 21 in a town that has little, if any, activities for teen-agers. The special teen nights at Yori's are closely watched simply because the club was specifically established for the over-21 crowd. Except for this one night. A admission is charged at the door. Soft drinks are served during the 8 p.m.-l a.m. period with the bar stock unavailable to anyone, even to those over 21. "We have a couple of 17-year-olds to work as 'cocktail' Yori said. With the exception of an off-duty Reno policeman, Yori, and some of his regular staff, the club ap- pears to be run by teen-agers. The average teen-ager who does go to Yori's on Monday enters the place and is immediately con- fronted by a young lady in a ticket booth. After paying admission, entry to the confines are to the right, through a curtain of hanging bamboo. Inside, the teen-ager can select from about ISO seats or just mill around when those seats are taken. page 2, col. 6 v t J ;Af V'- They're liberating this house This three-bedroom house in Northwest Reno will be general contractor; Bill Palmer, superintendent on project out of fear he will be lumped together with the partially heated by solar energy. Checking the the job; and Al Goodsell, painting contractor, "solar energy" crackpots. The house is at Wyoming progress of their work are, from left, Paul Neuffer, Neuffer has been reluctant to publicize his solar Avenue and Severn Drive. (Gazettephoto) Solar energy applied to Reno house Nothing radical, but it will cut the bills By LENITA POWERS By using nature instead of fighting her and by relying on basic architectural principles, houses in the Reno area might be built at a low cost and save 60-70 per cent on energy costs, Paul Neuffer said today. In fact, Neuffer presently is building a house that is partially heated by soiar energy. He hopes to complete the three- bedroom structure in three weeks and estimates his future designs could save up to 70 per cent in energy bills for home owners. The head of Neuffer Construction Co. Inc., the 41-year-old man has spent almost his entire life in the building-contracting industry. He doesn't claim to have made a breakthrough. He's even reluctant to discuss his model home located on Wyoming Avenue and Severn Drive in Northwest Reno. The man's light-colored hazel eyes hold a pensive look. In his heart, he knows the design he has developed is based on sound engineering and it can work But he doesn't want to sound like one of the crackpots who have so readily been jumping on the solar energy bandwagon After much persuasion, he discusses the development in home designing he has worked on for more than a year. ''There's been so many cranks coming up with Rube Goldberg schemes, that I'm very sensitive about it." Neuffer explained FINANCING TOUGH "There's been a lot of attempts to make solar energy work Highly sophisticated, complicated engineering that is highly susceptible to breakdowns and little financing available because they're ex- perimental." Neuffer's design utilizes existing technology already used in the construction industry. Basically, instead of expensive solar collector panels, his house design calls for a regular roof with corregated aluminum covered with special black paint on the south side and windows on the south side to collect energy from the sun. The heat is collected in the attic and is conducted by ducts down to the three feet of rock that is beneath the home. The heat from the sun shines through the thermal windows on to special ceramic tiles that further transfer heat to the concrete underneath. HEAT RELEASED When the sun goes down, the ducts close off their channel to the attic Heat is still being released from the tiles and the heat stored in the rocks beneath the house is distributed up into the ducts and throughout the home The beauty of the design is that most homes are built with the area below to contain the rock heating storage system. In the summer when the sun shines most of the time at a higher angle in the sky, eaves protect the ends of the house that face east and west from the heat. When the sun goes down, the roof panel collects the cold night air in the attic, stores it through the ducts in the rock below and then it serves as a summer cooling system. The rock heating system can store heat for up to eight days, Neuffer said, but the model home also has an alternate gas furnace and will contain either a Franklin or other type of wood-burning stove. NOT 100 PER CENT The house design is solar-tempered, not a 100 per cent solar-heated home, Neuffer points out. page 2, col. 1 Lebanon invaded by Palestinians ByFAROUKNASSAR BEIRUT, Lebanon (AP) A large Palestinian force crossed into Lebanon from Syria during the night, overran a Christian village in eastern Lebanon and tightened a siege on Zahlah, the biggest town in the Bekaa valley, a spokesman for the Lebanese army reported today. An air force reconnaissance plane brought back photos showing scores of army and police posts in the Bekaa region ablaze, the spokesman said. The army said to Palestinians made the border crossing, but diplomatic and Palestinian sources in Damascus said the number involved was between and State Department officials said in Washington they thought the larger figure was an exaggeration .The attack coincided with a new Syrian mediation bid supported by King Hussein of Jordan, who arrived in Damascus in his private jet just as a Syrian delegation arrived in Beirut. Syrian state radio said Hussein went into immediate consultations with President Hafez Assad. page 2, col. 7 Index to Gazette 7 sections, 74 pages SECTION ONE Editorials..............4 Family Living 6-7 Topics for Taxpayers 16 SECTION TWO pages SECTION THREE Amusements.......26-67 Classified........30-35 Crossword puzzle 33 Deaths................30 Doctor column........25 Markets.. 28-29 Public notices.....29-30 Sylvia Porter.........29 Vitals.................30 Weather..........30 SECTION FOUR Ann Landers.........41 Bridge.............41 Comics .41 Earl Wilson ........41 Sports..........37-40 Television log .41 SECTION FIVE Grand Central 8 pages SECTION SIX K mart 8 pages SECTION SEVEN Warehouse Market 4 pages Weather Reno, Sierra-Tahoe.

Oil, gas shortages blamed for atomic power drive ByTOMRAUM WASHINGTON (AP) World shortages of oil and natural gas are encouraging more nations to turn to atomic power, increasing chances that nuclear materials will be diverted to atomic weapons, a congressional study concludes The study by the Library of Congress, presented at a hearing Tuesday, said U.S. sharing of nuclear technology with other nations has increased the probability of further proliferation of nuclear arms. As a result, the report said, Congress may wish to re-evaluate some or all of its current 32 agreements to share nuclear technology and materials with foreign countries and international organizations. Most of these agreements were authorized in the 1950s, when the Atoms for Peace program, aimed at reducing Cold War tensions, was designed to encourage diversion of nuclear materials from weapons to civil use. Under the program, the United States enjoyed "more than a decade of influence over foreign development of nuclear the report said. "Unfortunately, the success of the agreements has served to diminish this source of influence as nations abroad have found other supplier nations, or have developed their own nuclear capabilities." The study added, "The outset of 1976 sees six nations that have detonated nuclear weapons or devices and many more that probably could do so quickly if they so chose It is evident that a nation with an industrial capacity can, if it wishes, produce nuclear weapons materials and weapons without having to steal or divert materials from today's nuclear power plants." It said the worldwide energy shortage is complicating the matter further, making nuclear energy more attractive to non- nuclear na'ions "Many nations will turn to nuclear power and many national nuclear power in- dustries will be expanded and diversified, All of these anticipated developments point to increased probability that more nations will be able to make nuclear weapons if they choose to do so, and that subnational (terrorist) groups will have more places from which to try to steal fissionable it said. The report was prepared for a Senate Government Operations subcommittee. The panel is considering measures to reorganize federal controls over peaceful exports of nuclear technology and materials The prime author of the report, Warren Donnelly, told the subcommittee the pal- tern of agreements for sharing nuclear knowledge and materials is beginning to change to include more safeguards. Budget signed President Ford and his budget director, James Lynn, are all smiles after the President signed the 1977 budget today in the Executive Office Building. The budget will be sent to Capitol Hill where it will await an uncertain fate. Details of Ford's billion, deficit-spending budget are on page 42. (AP photo) NEWSPAPERRRCHIVED
