Mount Pleasant News (Newspaper) - July 11, 1970, Mount Pleasant, Iowa
F 1 the my pleasant news partly Cloudy vol. 92, no. 162 it. Pleasant Iowa saturday evening july 11, 1970 Price 10 cents these Days by John Chamberlain laying the bases for the next Boom in the Nineteen thirties when everyone was succumbing to despair the complaint was that no new a ladder industries were available to enable the capitalist system to climb out of depression. The automobile Industry serve As it had served in the twenties for the country was still chock a Brock with usable used cars. But the surface gloom which dominated the headlines did no to reckon with a thousand and one new experimental items from cellophane to electronics a or. And a or research and development a was becoming a big Laboratory business in itself. The impulses that shattered the misbegotten notion of the a mature i.e., the externally Static Economy and led to the Long postwar Boom Are still running Strong despite our present troubles. In recent weeks this column has talked with vibrant individuals who think they have various a a ladders on which to climb. There is the proposition to raise huge quantities of fish under controlled conditions in tanks the being to do for the fish Market what the scientific Chicken raisers did for the poultry Market of the forties and fifties. The fish gives Promise of leaping a Barrier almost before it is started for the ecologists seeking a fast Breeding fish that will substitute for dangerous pesticides in killing Mosquito larvae want to get an a a in on the new business if it succeeds. Then there is the proposition to make huge grinding machines to reduce All sorts of waste to usable soil a proposition that would turn garbage sewage and even non returnable bottles into valuable raw materials three weeks after i wrote a column about this the town of Milford in Connecticut announced that it was purchasing a grinding machine to handle its garbage and old tin cams the resultant soil will be used to build a huge Hill in a Public Park. The payoff in Winter sports would seem to be obvious. Still another possible a ladder Industry is Bell telephones proposed picture Telephone service recently inaugurated on a trial basis in Pittsburgh. This image Filush voice communication is costly now. A like laying the first Atlantic Cable a As the Bell people say but in time the Cost will come Down. The ecologists reacting to the Oil leaks in the Santa Barbara Channel have succeeded in blocking the development of the offshore Oil busness. But this will pass. The real eight company developers of something called a a photo mosaic technique a has signed a contract with the Union Oil company to keep watch on 63,000 feet of pipeline half of which is in 190 feet of water in the Santa Barbara Channel. The presumption is that the photography will catch any potential leaks before they can become Large enough to pollute the beaches. Eventually the underwater photography will be linked up with a fibreglass undersea a tent City that is specifically designed to trap Oil seepage. The real eight people Are also at work in the North sea where they have surveyed the legs of a Shell Oil offshore drilling platform in 110 feet of water. The potential of undersea photography May very Well result in new techniques of Bottom scraping and painting that will do away with the necessity of putting huge warships and tankers into dry Dock in order to make their hulls seaworthy. Divers using the undersea photographic equipment recently fade a successful Survey of a Shell Tanker in Belfast North Ireland. To sustain itself the Tanker because of its huge size and weight had to remain in seventeen feet of water in the dry Dock. The photographic Survey was conducted under conditions of practically Zero visibility in near freezing water with Only four and one half feet Between the ships Hull and the base of the dry Dock. The owners of the big supertanker think they will be Able to repaint the Bottoms of their ships by using an underwater a wet proof technique that is now being developed. Inasmuch As there Are Only a few dry docks in the world capable of holding jumbo size tankers in a dry state this will save vast sums an the Tanker maintenance Bill. So we move on into the new world in which a or. And guarantees productivity without pollution. The faint hearts who Are Selling us Short will be flummoxed again just As they were at the end of the Nineteen thirties. Distributed by King features Syndicate.
