Rossman in his Book Quot psychology of the he continued. Things or ideas ale fitted together interwoven and combined to produce results which Are More than the details from which they Are John Dreyer of Montgomery is an inventor who has in his career fitted More than one idea together. This year he has been chosen a distinguished scientist of the year by the technical and scientific societies Council of Cincinnati. A research was always my Field a Dreyer said As he sat Down on the sofa in the living room of his renovated farmhouse. A i knew 1 wanted to be mechanical and not literary a he said. The clock ticked quietly As Dreyer reviewed his career. A a graduating Mit in 1929, Dreyer came to Cincinnati and went to work for Formica developing and improving plastics. He devoted weekends and any spare time to Independent research. As Early As 1931, he was working on a method of transmitting Light signals by using crystals. He did t invent television but he did develop a Crystal material that was selective about the Light it let in. The Light was polarized when it passed through the Lens in 1945, when his Polarizer was one year away f r o m co m m e re i a 1 use Dreyer quit his Good Job at Formica and went to work full time in his a nth men on research. He said his wife Trudie did no to even blink at the decision to go on i own. A you never know what you Are Worth until you work for yourself a he said. Going from basement inventor to businessman does no to happen overnight said Dreyer finding the right people with the right talents is important. Many people devoted time to pol coat. A you can to do it from by yourself a a Dreyer said a Vourse. Re Earth led him to us night school where the help and encouragement of or. Turnau and or. Hoke Greene got him through the periods of disappointment a when the experiments just did no to go right. Dreyer formed a partnership with a promoter and moved to Springfield for a year to Market the Polarizer. In 1946 the partnership amicably dissolved Dreyer it moved Back to Cincinnati and incorporated to form pol coat inf. Polarizing lenses made by pol coat made excellent rear View mirrors but were first wildly successful in the paper glasses that a moviegoers wore to see cd films in the 50s, a Phene Call came one Day from a Hollywood producer and soon after that the Little Plant in Blue a a was making As Many of Tite id glasses As they staff swelled to about do and a total of 5 plants a Ere opened in the area to Vandle the demand for the a lasses. Over 28 million were made in All. The business too staed up for a few years and then two weeks after some new machines were delivered it crashed. A one of the hardest things 1 Ever had to said to Reyer a was to Tell each one of those 100 people that we keep them other uses were found for the Polarizer. Rear projection screens were developed for audio visual equipment and pol coat continued to develop and grow. The company was sold three years ago to 3m and Dreyer retired As chairman of the Board and director of research he now works in a machine filled Laboratory Complete with intercom in the backyard. He built it out of a Chicken House. Still Active in research Dreyer said he is proud of his most recent achievement the completed equation for transmitting sound Waves through a plate that contains liquid crystals. The project took six months to develop and another six months to put in mathematical form on paper. A natures answers Are neat and simple a Dreyer explained. The problem is getting to the human understanding of them. While switching on the machinery in the backyard lab to demonstrate the patterns that ultrasonic sound would make ill the liquid crystals. Dreyer explained that he Hopes to refine the process enough so that images of objects placed in the water can be formed via the sound on a View plate. He said be would like eventually to make a machine that will make sound pictures like an a Ray for hospitals. What do a it take to be an inventor Dreyer thinks it takes determination patience to see through the 1000 experiments that go wrong for every one that goes right a belief in yourself that you can Ted the answer and the encouragement of family colleague a and friends. John Dreyer shows his Laboratory equipment that makes ultrasonic sound patterns on plates containing liquid crystals. Dreyer is working to develop a sound picture device that does the work of the a Ray Machi now used in hospitals. He says that sound pictures would be much safer than the a Ray.

By Bob guard a Sycamore township Board of trustees has adopted a new fire code which according to trustee Jim Bechtold will give the township a local control like we never had a the a Rode developed by sycamores newly hired fire prevention officer Fred Benz will enable Benz to inspect area Homes or businesses and to cite or ticket offenders. The code. Was unanimously adopted at the trustees meeting feb. 2. Eleven other townships in Hamilton county Are in the process. Of adopting the same code. Trustee Frank Rosea however objected that the new code could Force some area businesses out of operation. He pointed out that rape s Oil 4457 Sycamore 1 Heger Oil were be Hurt by the tons on and Oil rd., and sure to codes Strong Regula bulk gasoline a storage.

Jan. 31. Blue Ash police said Sledge Hammer apparently used burglars to Bash a Hole in the Back Wall of the King Kwik Between 1 and 6 . Three Days before on Jan. 28, Deer Park Kigh school was broken into and $800 was taken from a Wall Safe in the main office. The Wall beside the Safe was broken through with a Sledge Hammer Between 7 and 11 . The Safe was entered from the Side.

Hosea said that both rape s Oil and Heger Gil have above ground tanks that undoubtedly exceed the limit but that since both companies Are located in the More Rural areas of the township they should be exempted from the regulation. �?ootherwise1 we re going to be putting these out of business commented. Bechtold advised Hosea that this particular regulation has been a part of the Ohio state code for years. Benz has already cited the two Oil companies for violation of the state regulation on bulk storage and they have until june 1, 1978 to comply. Benz a code Marks a turning Point for residents and businesses throughout Sycamore some who have up to now lived virtually without a fire code. Although Sycamore is governed by the Ohio state fire code the formerly Rural complexion of the township for Many years made it inapplicable or unenforceable in Many areas. With the Advent of increased urbanization throughout Many townships like Sycamore the problems of fire prevention in these communities have taken on More of a character of immediacy. Three out of five projects that Sycamore township applied for under the Federal Community development cd program have been Given tentative approval by cd officials. The High Point storm sewers project improvements for Sycamore Park and demolition for renewal of certain property in High Point Are still being considered for funds under the program. The original request of $40,000 for Sycamore Park has been Cut to a maximum possible Grant of $25,000. Bechtold announced that construction will begin this Spring on the High Point sewers. Contracts have been signed with an area construction company and residents can expect work to begin around March i.
