He has a fool I according to persons who have talked with him at length Since Onoda has not yet made public nis reversal in the reaction of the Japanese is not known. They have made him a national admiring his sense of his obedience and and his resolve to survive. Onoda declined to be interviewed direct- ly because he is completing a 12-part magazine series and a book of his ex- periences for a leading publisher here. He has given the company exclusive rights to his story. The lean 52-year-old former soldier sign- ed a contract for his memoirs shortly after his triumphal return. The publishers have spent the last few months draining Onoda's memory for two ghost writers to spin into the magazine articles and the book Onoda took a break to meet with Arsenio L. governor of the state of West Mindoro in the Philip- which includes Lubang Island. Villaroza is here at the invitation of the Japanese government. The who last saw Onoda when he left the Philippines in March. By JOHN FIALKA Special to The Herald WASHINGTON The job of harnessing the energy in sunlight has been like pushing a cumbersome object up near the top of a difficult hill. Much of the basic scientific work has been some of it completed years ago But getting the notion of a solar power industry over the top and rolling under its own momentum was still a dream until last winter when the Arab oil embargo came along. if you took a journey through the world of solar the broad spectrum of devices and concepts that have long been in the realm of a few scientists and many magazine feature you would see considerable movement. Solar-heated solar power from trees and solar power from solar power from the ocean and from strange wafers of silcon are no longer Buck Rogers dreams. The revolution in fuel prices means that perhaps all of these are about to become practical. The Washington office of Alfred J Eggers Jr. is packed with reports that conclude that solar power may be the cleanest new source of energy. If you could catch. and use one out of every 700 units of solar energy falling on the United asserts the energy crisis would be over forever. assistant director for research applications at the National Science Founda- tion hit upon the idea to use solar power in the simplest to use the sun's heat to fill radiators in buildings and homes. The word went out from the lead agency promoting solar that there was over million in grants available for com- panies who could design solar heating systems for the schools and have them runn- ing before the 1973-74 heating season was over. Some of the giants of the U.S. heating industry including General Electric and Inc. so did Intertechnology in a relative- ly tiny company headed by Dr George C. a chemical engineer. Using a crew of 30 people and working nights and Szego's company put together in 57 days what may be the world's largest single array of solar collector plates on the grounds of a nearby school. Since March the sun has been the sole source of heat for five drafty temporary classroom buildings at Fau- quier County Public High School in Warrenton. The system saves roughly 24 gallons of fuel oil every day and it can store heated water in insulated tanks for up to 12 days when the sun is not shining. Everything that went into Szego's system can be found on the shelves of building supply stores. The basic solar heating the solar has been experimented with since 1909. It is simply a rectangular covered with glass and bottomed with a black-painted metal sheet that has thin water pipes running through it. When the sunlight hits the metal it is turning into heat The glass traps the creating temperatures inside the box that can reach as high as 200 degrees. The water in the pipes carries the heat away to or to insulated tanks for storage when the heat is not needed While there are only about 30 solar-heated buildings in the United States there are indications that soaring fuel bills and examples like Szego's school and three other schools that suddenly received solar heating systems last winter are beginning to give industry dreams of mass production. But solar collector panel systems are really just the tip of an iceberg of ideas and designs that scientists have developed. all the plans for solar power were simply put in one place and quipped one wouldn't need a new energy In solar power has really in recent a generic covering almost any way you can get energy from- something that has been touched or produced by sunlight in recent months.
