It will operate a Generator to charge the batteries. A Small electric motor will retract the Windmill when not in use. A Small lightweight gasoline engine will charge batteries while the car is being driven or when the wind is not blowing. The car should be Able to go about 50 Miles without a recharge at speeds of 30 to 50 Miles per hour. Curtis and his co designers said.

Geological fault located under nuclear Power Plant Louisa a. Apr a geologist has told an atomic Energy commission panel that there is Little Chance that a geological fault under the North Anna nuclear Power station would move but added he was a concerned because a fault remains a zone of or. John Funkhouser who first identified the North Anna fault in 1970. Expressed grave doubts a written statement received by the atomic Energy commission safety and licensing Board hearing thursday. Only three of the 25 speakers testifying at thursday s hearing in Louisa favored the North Anna station being constructed by Virginia electric amp Power co. The hearing is being held in an Effort to determine if the North Anna site is still acceptable to the now that a geologic fault has been found under the site. Funkhouser said when he first visited the reactor site feb 23, 1970. Quot my responses were a series of us poses. I could not believe that Repco was knowingly siting a nuclear reactor astride a the geologist a professor at Petersburg s John Tyler Community College said the site had been a poorly planned researched and supervised. Quot there have been times i have wondered if conclusions had not been furnished to Repco s geologic consultants with the expectation confused a worried a a upset a a i j a in Contact a phone us a j 882-8121 they would find corroborating data Quot he said Many of the opponents not Only were against the siting of the $1 billion North Anna station atop a geological fault but also nuclear Energy in general. But John b Farmakides Board chairman said the panel s function was Quot to Settle disputes on whether this Plant is being built and operated in conformity with atomic Energy commission regulations Quot not to debate the Good or evil of nuclear Power. Those favouring the Power station All were Louisa county officials. Louisa county administrator Dean Agee told the Board that the Power Plant had the backing of the county Board of supervisors. And Robert Whitlock county planning commission chairman said the Plant s construction Quot has been and will continue to be of great economic Benefit to Louisa county. Quot i have full Confidence that the atomic Energy commission will demand adequate safeguards both during construction and operation and will protect the Public safety a Whitlock said but others were not so confident of the a eco a guardian role Quot what we wonder How employees justify their salaries to their said Deborah Wyatt a Louisa school teacher. A the dec farce much As this hearing at considerable taxpayers expense is a farce when the decisions Are predetermined. For you know what is right and it Means nothing to drugs or alcohol or had other difficulties making him unsuitable for military service. Pentagon officials had defended the system As necessary for the 88 per cent of servicemen discharged routinely. They were said to need the codes to prove in effect that they received a Good recommendation from their former military service. It is the other 12 per cent who concerned congressional critics like rep. Edward Koch. Any. He said this week that employers frequently misused the code by obtaining corresponding numbers for each reason for unsuitable discharge. Koch and a number of congressional investigators have found misuse of the code although it is Pentagon policy to keep it out of private hands. In recent months parts of the code and reasons for unsuitable discharges have been published in various newspapers. Although a Serviceman might have received an honorable discharge the code on his papers indicates the reason for the discharge including different kinds of aberration Al behaviour. That adds up to an Quot invasion of privacy for a Veteran with a prejudicial discharge number even though Only the sex Serviceman is supposed to be told the reasons for his discharge Koch says. Under a new system to go into effect by the end of june the code will be abolished and replaced with a written description of the reason for discharge available Only on the specific request of the Veteran. Without a numerical code no one but the Veteran will be Able to Tell a potential employer or anyone else the reason for discharge. The hundreds of thousands of sex servicemen discharged in the Post Vietnam Era with prejudicial code numbers would be permitted to ask for new discharge papers void of any indication Why they left military service.

And it could radically change the Way pcs stations get National programs. The Agency is using a Canadian satellite to relay to shows from Canada to selected pub stations hooked up to a Mobile ground terminal. The stations 18 in All Are in the Northeast and Midwest. None of the programs Are rebroadcast. The Experiment which began at Weta in Washington d.c., feb. 19 and will end May 3 at Din in Des Moines Iowa Only Aims at checking the Quality of the satellite signal at the various locations. The test was ordered in january As part of a study on the use of a satellite As a possible alternative method of linking pm so 244 stations. The stations like their commercial network counterparts now get most of their National programs Over costly land lines. The Canadian satellite transmission system in operation since Early 1973, is be ing used because the first . Domestic satellite won t go into operation until this summer pcs officials say. The ground terminal a 25-foot Dis shaped Antenna mounted on a Van is being shifted from station to station for the test. Today its scheduled to be at wed in Hartford Conn. But if the satellite system is adopted. Pcs officials say they a probably try to get a ground terminal installed at each Public to station or at the Headquarters of state Public to networks. How s the Quality of the satellite signal so far Quot very Good bearing in mind the satellite is beamed toward Canada and not the ., says John Ball a pcs engineering executive who is overseeing the satellite study. If pcs adopted the system How Long would i be before Public to stations get their shows by satellite Quot it s conceivable that we could be on a satellite in three or four years depending on How fast the pcs Board wanted to go and whether it was economically attractive or not Quot Ball said 4 �?~2 i hi>lt.4-nsh�r� j it ,0 Roanoke Burion. ?.
