Athens News Courier (Newspaper) - March 31, 1974, Athens, Alabama It Ray make Energy crunch look puny Washington if you dislike waiting in line for gasoline for your car you re going to hate waiting in line for the car itself. An exaggeration perhaps. But some . Officials Are saying that the fuel shortages Are Only the beginning of what eventually May be a much larger and More serious minerals crisis. The . Industrial Complex Chews up tremendous quantities of minerals in producing the automobiles buildings appliances and other goods which have Given this country the highest Standard of living and Energy consumption in the world. In just metals alone this includes 1,200 pounds a year of Iron and steel for every Man woman and child in the United states 50 pounds of aluminium 25 of Copper 15 of Zinc 15 of Lead and 35 of other metals according to the . Department of the Interior. The country a huge consumption of metals in Many ways parallels the consumption of huge amounts of Energy. The parallel includes a significant dependence on foreign suppliers. As a result of the Arab Oil embargo which transformed the . Energy problem into a crisis some officials Are examining the country a future vulnerability to a similar minerals crisis. A right now we Are feeling the Adverse effects of Over Reliance on foreign sources of Oil a a Interior Secretary Rogers . Morton said recently. A unless we learn from this experience and learn fast we could be confronted in the future with severe shortages of Iron steel and according to the Interior department the United states now imports All or virtually All of a number of metals including Platinum Mica chromium and strontium and More than 70 per cent of others including Cobalt 1111 i an a urn a us num manganese fluorine titanium Asbestos tin Bismuth and Nickel. Just As has been the Case with Energy sources . Dependence on foreign sources of metals is increasing each year. A by the end of this Century we May be forced to get half or More of our Mineral requirements from foreign sources a says Elburt f. Osborn director of the Interior depart Nentz a Bureau of mines. A furthermore we will be competing for those foreign Mineral products with other Mineral hungry nations All Over the world. This situation could Lead to a global crisis that would make our current Energy crisis look like the Good old Days by ironically while some officials Are concerned about increased dependence on foreign suppliers of certain metals the .

National Security Council president Nixon recommended last year that Many raw material stockpiles be reduced to a one year Reserve. The recommendation was based on the belief that the . Economy is so versatile that after one year of War sufficient substitute materials would be available to prevent shortages. Or. Nixon also hoped that Selling the materials would hold Down inflation. Congress authorized a reduction in some of the reserves including Copper aluminium Silicon Carbide Zinc and molybdenum. The aluminium stockpile should be completely depleted by october. Morton thinks the policy favouring liquidation of stockpiles should be reexamined particularly for minerals which Are not available in this country at prices comparable to foreign prices. These metals include Bauxite the Basic raw material for aluminium production manganese an essential Mineral in steel production and chromite an indispensable Metal used for plating and for hardening steel. In 1973, the United states imported almost 13 million tons of Bauxite compared to Domestic a production of less than 2 million tons. Almost All manganese and chromite is imported. The United states is less dependent on foreign suppliers for two of the country a most important minerals Iron Ore about one third imported and Copper less than one tenth imported. But the size of those industries makes any dependence an important economic Factor. The production of steel vital to Auto building and construction is a $27-billion-a-year Industry which employs 870,000 persons. Production of Copper used most heavily in electrical applications is a $7-billion-a-year Industry which employs 145,000. As . Dependence on foreign suppliers increases so does the concern that metals producing countries will band together in various cartels to Jack up prices by threatening to withhold supplies. Some officials fear that the example set by the organization of Petroleum exporting countries open a consisting of major Oil producers May be followed by others. As a result of Opecz a efforts the Price of persian Gulf Petroleum today is More than five times the 1970 Price. Useful basis mrs. Gertrude Milligan 77 negotiating funeral services for mrs.
