Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 20, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 8 THE nrrHBRIOOi: MEfiAlB Thuuday, August 20, 1970 Senate lief uses To Stop Missile Expansion Plans LUNAR ECLIPSES Lunar eclipses occur when (he orbits of the earth and moon line up approximately in the same plane, and the moon swings inlo the 'JOu.OOO-mile shadow Ihrown by Ihe earth. STRONG FAN E g y p t i a n pharoahs were cooled by long-handled semi-cir- cular hand fans. Assyrians built huge ceiling fans which they claimed could develop "enough wind to wreck a ship."

UNDERGROUND HIGHWAY Switzerland recently started an underground highway below the St. GoUharcl Pass. The 10.2-mile road will provide year-round access lo Italy from northern Europe. EXPERTS SENT The United Nations Industrial Development Organization has sent three experts lo the moun- tain kingdom, Swaziland, to seek potential areas for new in- dustries. WASHINGTON (CP) Ttie Senate refused Wednesday, for the third time in a week, to stop expansion of the Safeguard anti-missile system. The amendment was defeat- ed 53 to 45. Tte rejection came on a de- feat, of a compromise amend- ment to the 519.2 billion military procurement authorization bill. The amendment, offered by Senator Edward W. Brook iRep.-Mass.) would have elimi- nated Safeguard sites planned for Whiteman Air Force Base, Mo., and Warren Air Force Base, Wyo. Defeat of the amendment cleared the last major legisla- tive roadblock to the deploy- ment of the controversial sys- tem to the two new sites. Safeguard lias been billed throughout the debate both as a vital defence of America's war- deterring missile force and as a key bargaining chip in arms control talks with Russia. The vote came after Defence Secretary Melvin R. Laird an- nounced'the Pentagon could nei- ther support nor accept the compromise amendment offered by Brooke. Brooke's amendment would have allowed the Pentagon to use the million saved to strengthen anti-missile defences at the two sites authorized last Air Force Base, Mont., and Grand Forks Air Force Base, N.D. The actual funds lo expand Safeguard must still be consi- dered in aii appropriations bill, with approval considered likely. Seawater Solves Air Pollution BERKELEY. Calif. (Reu- ters) _ Common seawater is capable of solving one of the world's most troublesome air pollution problems, a Univer- sity of California scientist re- pcfts. Prof. Leroy Bromley, a chemical engineer, said in a re- port that he had conducted ex- periments which proved that ordinary seawater could be used to remove smog-produc- ing sulphur dioxide from smoke emitted by power plants. Sulphur dioxide, mainly pro- duced by the burning of coal, is generally regarded as the most serious of several air pol- lutants e n d a n g e ring human health. Bromley said use of seawater as an anfidole would be so sim- ple and inexpensive that the United States could save mil- lions of dollars a year in its drive against dirty air. He said that the least sophis- ticated seawater cleaning de- Report Says No Need To Build Plane WASHINGTON (Beuters) A congressional report said today there is no need to build a U.S. supersonic passenger jet to rival the Concorde because (he Anglo-French plane will be a commercial flop. The report said the Concorde, now undergoing supersonic flight tests, is unlikely to pose a major threat to the U.S. aircraft industry and there is no con- vincing evdence that a com- mercially viable version of the plane will be developed. Only British and French air- lines likely -nil] buy many Con- cordes because the aircraft will be uneconomical to operate, it said. The report was issued by a subcommittee on economy in government Senator William Proxmire (Dem. a persistent critic if America's supersonic transport project. But one subcommittee mem- ber, Clarence Brown (Rep. Ohio) issued a personal rebuttal of the findings. "If the joint economic com- mittee had been advising Queen Isabella of Spain we would still be in Barcelona waiting to prove the world round before daring the he said. The report said development costs of the projected U.S. su- personic jet would exceed billion. The problems created by the SST in sonic booms and airport noise would far out- weigh its benefits to the travel- ling public through increased speed, it said. The report came as a close Senate vote is shaping up on the Nixon administration's request for million in the current financial year to continue work on two prototypes. vice he tested removed SO per cent of sulphur dioxide from smokestack gases, while a more elaborate system re- moved 99 per cent. His method, he said, involved cooling the r a w gas, running them through a chamber to be "scrubbed" clean by seawater, and then reheating them for relatively innocuous release. Bromley, an authority on converting seawater to fresh water, hit upon Us discovery by chance in the course of ex- periments with brine. He said it should prove eco- nomically attractive to coal- burning power plants located near sea coasts. He conceded that further study was required into the ef- fects of the operation on sea- water, but said any changes were unlikely to pose a threat to marine life.
