EM* - Bythevge (AA) Courier ITewi - Monday. August'». li» -D LASER A ntw Uit is opening up for one of the most promising developments to come out of research laboratories in recent years— the uftraconcentra- ted beams of light known as lasers. Lasers art being used to create three-dimensional pictures in a new process called holography. It is, in effect, lensless photography that records an invisible image on photographic film and then recreates it when the film Js again subjected to a laser beam. To take o holographic picture, laser light from the long box at right is directed by a series of mirrors at the horse in front of the spherical metal mirror. Part of the light is reflected by the horse, part by Jhe mirror onto the long, circular strip of photographic Mm where the combined image is recorded as a series of g<ny squiggles. The developed negative is called a hologram. When 'the laser is beamed back at the hologram, the image of the original horse is reproduced, three-dimensional and seeming to hang in space, so real-appearing that it can be viewed from all sides. This picture, from an experiment at Westinghouse Research Laboratories at Pittsburgh, Pa, was taken with a standard camera catching jaser light from the hologram reflected by the spherical mirror.

The man went on to say that | sort of thing. public disaffection with Edwards. Most of. them were rooted in the sort of innuendoes that attach to any man in public life — suspicion of his motives; derogation of his character. That '-. former City Council member Tom Little will "definitely" run against Edwards this Fall. Why is the Mayor in trouble? the man was asked. "Mainly because of these bunged • up streets," he ans- Edwards is the kind of man- self-confident, determined —who would not be greatly wrought up over attacks on his person or his name. But it would probably — literally — break his heart if he bunged • up streets, ne ans- any — mean mo ueaii u. uc wered. People, don't realize thought a majority of his con- that all the blockades and detours now mean good drivable streets and adequate storm drainage later. ,- "They just 'take a look at the :• mess they think is all about them, and it makes them mad at Jimmie. Don't ask me why they blame him. Maybe that's just the bad luck of politicians." • The man gave other reasons '.' for what he saw as a sizeable stituents disapproved of his street policy. The establishment of an up to - date street and sewer network has been the single major goal of Edward's tenure as Mayor. He has probably made a few mistakes along the way of implementing this goal and has, too, suffered from the mistakes of nature — as witness the heavy rains of the last two weeks that have delayed or even set back construction. But he believes he has endeared himself to Blytheville history by having had the courage and the foresight to undertake a crash program of this kind — and perhaps he has. One day last week Edwards was using up sorae spare time by making a circuit of areas where construction was going on. The Mayor has what amounts to a mania for making these impromptu inspections. "I just wish my family were taken care of, and I didn't need my furniture store, and I could devote all my time to helping people," iie burst out suddenly. 'Oh, the things I want to do!" There was no reason to question his sincerity. Whatever the people may think, most informed observers seem to feel that Edwards deserves unqualified praise for picking up a thread of civic vision that was lost somewhere back in the 1920's — when most of the pre - Edwards street paving was done. For 40 years, these observers maintain, the city's streets de generated into a condition approaching anarchy. Edwards, thy say, has arrested that de- »••••••«•••••••••** WILSON NEWS ,. ..«••*•••• MM.

For this' construction would shortly produce attractive paved streets and efficient drainage — for which his conqueror would then be credited. ' For all the usual reliability of the source quoted earlier, though, it is difficult to believe that Jimmie Edwards is really in trouble with the voters. It is not unreasonable to suppose Kiat these voters will treat Edwards as handsomely this year as they have twice before. Nor is it unreasonable to place the burden of proof on those who have accusations of any other kind against the Mayor. Perhaps it is the season for such rumors. A story from Osceola has it that Mayor Ben Butler is in trouble, too. The reasoning behind this story is that Butler burned himself with certain Osceola powers by not backing home - town Ann Dunning, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Dewey Dunning, is convalescing at home following surgery at Baptist Hospital in Memphis.
