electricity a phenomenon in which electricity can pass through electrical conductors without was originally thought to occur only at temperatures close to absolute or minus degrees the point at which the normal motion of molecules In 1973 scientists achieved super conductivity at minus degrees On Paul a physics professor at the University of announced that he and his assistants raised the temperature to minus 387 And at Bell Laboratories in Murray researchers achieved minus Bob director of chemical and physics said This has such great Chu said at a news ad ding that he believed the temperature could be raised even Advances in superconductivity could eventually be used in many including the generation of fu sion energy and the storage and transmission of electrici Chu Because almost 116 power would be lost in transmission through a super conducting power power plants could some day be built long distances from the people they 6ynes Cooling conductors to achieve superconductivity is expensive and technologically Scientists hope that by raising the temperature at which superconductivity they can make superconductivity cheaper and easier to Superconductivity

Services are pending at Zoeller Funeral Home for Ella Erfurt of 1325 died 31 at McKenna Memorial The tourist industry in New Braunfels brought In about million in Purdum noted that tourism still ranks behind manufac turing and payroll as the citys top revenueproducing Tourist promotion in the Dallas Fort Worth area paid off this the chamber executive We recently began marketing those areas just by chance and it paid off for he noting that New Braunfels already annually reaps tourist dollars from visitors from the Houston and coastal Purdum said that oil economy declines in that region would have hurt the local tourist scene had it not been for promotions in other We didnt know then what the economy was going to he mentioning the chambers promo If the state economy hurt it didnt hurt us He said that San Antonio has in re cent years begun acknowledging New Braunfels as an asset to its tourism promotions and he expects New Braunfels to reap some rewards through a major event happening in San Antonio late next The Pope is set to visit San Antonio 13 and Purdum said the town should be able to fill a lot of hotel rooms with visitors to the We expect to get a lot of hotel oc cupancy overflow from Pur dum noting that some hotels in San Antonio have already begun tak ing reservations for rooms during that He said that will be a good opportunity to introduce New Braunfels to people who have never been here A significant milestone for the chamber in 1986 was the December agreement with the city on a five year contract for allocations of the 6 percent hotelmotel room occupancy Previous contracts ran for two but chamber officials urged the fiveyear pact for longrange planning for both administrative and promotion City councils unanimous ap proval of that contract was a signal to the chamber and that signal was confidence and It was very important to us in many Purdum Attendance at Wurstfest rebound ed from lags in recent years as Purdum The annual festival that once drew more than visitors during its 10day run had slipped to Purdum said that the attendance drops were due largely to rules and regulation changes initiated by the festival to draw a more family oriented Relying heavily on visitors from San he also said the economy played a role in at tendance figures Wurstfest also operated for the first year apart from the He said the festival is now a selfsustaining organization which marks a very important step in the progress of the Another on going activity by the chamber is a white water feasibility which will review possibility of creating a white water course for kayakers and canoers that could be used by Olympic training amatuers and Purdum said there is only one such course in the United States located at Fort He said the drawback to the Indiana course is that it is not usable in the winter and that a course here could be used nearly year The feasability study is being performed by the same engineering firm that designed the Fort Bend A key mode for growth planning according to Purdum is the Austin San Antonio corridor economic development task force of which Pur dum is a founding The task force is made up of representatives of a sixcounty area along the cor If we can keep the council it can be a very effective vehicle for us to he Among the goals of the task force is economic growth and planning as development increases along the cor The council also compiles tourism brochures and pertinent data for the communities Overall weve had a very good Purdum adding that he expects the coming year to be even better as the new chamber activities and programs begin to Retiree can collect a hobby RICHARDSON AP Most peo ple cant wait to but when 70 yearold Pete Morrison finally he took up what some would con sider backbreaking Five years ago when I my son said people who retire dont live long I started collecting aluminum cans to stay in said the longtime Richardson resi the daily bending over and occasional foray into area dump sters to retrieve discarded cans hasnt put a physical strain on Mor I was a custodian with the Richardson Independent School District for 21 years before I retired I worked inside and out so this work hasn t bothered Morrison credits his money making cancollecting hobby with keeping in good physical shape and even helping him live Everytime someone asks me why I do it I tell them what my son told I think it has kept me alive and healthy because I havent needed to go to the doctor for Aside from the Mor risons hobby keeps a steady flow of money coming into his albeit he stressed he doesnt collect cans for economic Im Army retired I served during World War II and Im drawing three pensions so I dont do it for the like I I do it for the exer Morrison said a surprising facet of his hobby is that he always finds in teresting valuable possessions and in the trash dump sters he Youd be surprised all the money and things I find in the But my wife always tells me not to bring nothing home from the dump sters and I tell her what do you want me to bury it His onecar garage is filled to the top with industrialtype trash 20gallon garbage bags and card board boxes brimming over with empty beer and soda cans that could produce a jackpot if hed get rid of it all at But the spry veteran prefers to take the cans in on a piecemeal basis because it keeps him He turns the aluminum com modities in at a local recycling center about five garbage bags at a time and when he its almost always through sporadic I dont know how many cans I have in I dont turn them in at any particular time of the I just take them in whenever I get so many I cant get he said pointing at thousands of cans in his His exploits take him almost daily to all parts of Richardson as he combs the alleyways and business dumpsters in search of cans that hell take back to his garage to I made this masher because I figured out that if you mash them it takes about one load to takd dhem in recycling centeb if you dont mash them it takes about three Morrison said pointing to a long wooen instrument nailed to a table nside his After the mashing turns the cans into an aluminum he hauls them off in his station wagon to col lect what he said is only a few Morrison has become such a com mon sight at area businesses and neighborhoods that several residents have become involved in his When I started Id just go along and see a can and pick it but some people bring them to me and some people call and tell me where to find Sale Begins January 2nd Up To 50 OH Selected DolU STOHEWIDE SAVINGS SEGUIN STORE ONLY
