PAGE 20 T U C S O N D A ' I L Y C I T I Z E N THURSDAY, MARCH 7, 1968 INDUSTRIAL DUPLEXES' Nuclear-Powered Complexes Seen Gay Gondolier And Girls A gondolier play blindman's bluff with several young ladies, the one he catches to be his bride, in this scene from Gilbert and Sullivan's "Gondoliers," opening at 8:30 p.m. today at Tucson Music Center. The gay spot of the 18th century government and nobility of Venice will have performances also at 8:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday, and at 1:30 p.m. Saturday and 2:30 Sunday. Cost Gap Between Desalted And Fresh Water Narrows WASHINGTON AP) - The chairman of the Atomic Energy Commission envisions an industrial wonderland of "duplexes" -- huge nuclear-powered industrial complexes doing everything from conventional manufacturing to converting wastes into useful products. Among other advantages, national or worldwide networks of such complexes .would be free of any possibility of polluting the air or water, declares Dr. Glenn T. Seaborg. indeed, he said, one of their main functions would be to convert into useful raw materials much of the waste materials that now constitute potential pollutants. He said the plants themselves, being nuclear, would not create combustion products, like conventional power plants -- and any radioactivity released in normal operations would pose "no health hazard." Seaborg said such a revolutionary development holds potential for the future because of the ever-increasing prospects for "abundant low-cost energy" from the atom. But he offered no specific timetable as to when such things might be realized. Seaborg's comments came yesterday in a speech before a national electrical manufacturers' association meeting. He declared the reduced cost of electricity made possible by forthcoming developments in nuclear power "could result in savings of billions of dollars to the consumer -- and those would be net savings, far beyond any research and development cost that the taxpayer has invested in this' technology." Seaborg also envisioned for the indefinite future: -- Nuclear-powered manned bases on the moon -- providing heat or cooling as needed, and all electrical power; and possibly even allowing extraction of water and minerals from the lunar surface. -- "Planet conditioning" -the use of huge nuclear reactors to convert some of the mate- rials on a distant, airless, planet into a relatively comfortable "contained atmosphere." -- Local surface transportation on the moon and planets via battery-operated vehicles charged by nuclear-powered systems. -- Nuclear-powered electric rockets, potentially much faster than reactor-powered rockets employing chemical propellants. W i t h o u t saying directly whether he thought it could be accomplished .-- or would be practical -- Seaborg said there are "energy challenges" in such concepts as air-conditioning much of Africa and the subcontinent of Asia, and the heating future population centers in su- barctic regions.

They will be judged on good quality, creativity and composition. Better Quality at Greater Savings" WASHINGTON (AP) - Max N... Edwards, an assistant secretary of the interior, says the wide gap that once existed between the cost of desalted and fresh water is rapidly closing. In some areas, he said, desalted water is less expensive. ·.. ,· Edwards told a House interior subcommittee that Key West, Fia., is the first American city which has turned to the sea for its principal supply of municipal water. Just last year, he said, a 2.6 million gallon per day plant began producing fresh water in Key West at a cost of about 85 cents for a thousand gallons. Earlier this month, Edwards said, the Office of Saline Water announced the initiation of two new studies, one with the state of New Jersey and one with the city of New York. Edwards also explained the Bolsa Island project in southern California, which will utilize two nuclear·:reactors to produce 1,800 megaw.atts of electric power and 150, million gallons of desalted water a day.. . , Jack- Hunter, director of the Office of Saline Water, said'the $27,358,000 asked to continue'the desalting program for the 1969 fiscal year is a slight increase over the funds for the current fiscal year. D-M Personnel Office Honored The 4453rd Consolidated Personnel Office at' Davis-Monthan AFB has been named the best consolidated personnel office in the Tactical Air Command. The office was judged on efficiency, .accuracy, punctuality and over-all effectiveness. ··»**»·»· N] m *v».-.« SAVE! its EXAKTA BONUS WEEK A, NuART PHOTO! FABULOUS BRAND-NEW MODEL - EXAKTA 5OO i.
