C6 THURSDAY. OCTOBER 1O. 1996 CLASSIFIED THE SALINA JOURNAL INCHING ALONG United States has not embraced system of metric measure By RANDOLPH E. SCHMID The Associated I'ress W ASHINGTON — The United States just doesn't measure up to the rest of the world. It stands virtually alone in resisting the metric system: Among the family of nations, its only kin are Liberia and Burma. Wait, don't turn the page! Sure, this is about that odd way that other countries measure stuff, but read on anyway — there's no quiz at the end. Today is National Metric Day — the 10th day of the 10th month — and a good time to see where America stands on the kilo-whatever. Depending on your perspective, it's either making great strides or doing nothing much at all. In trade and business, the changeover is going great: Think of 35 mm film or soft drinks sold in 1- and 2-liter bottles. But in cultural areas, like measuring today's temperature or reading a highway sign, "We've gotten nowhere," said Gerard lannelli of the National Institute of Standards and Technology. It's his job to assess such things. It's not actually true that the United States doesn't use the metric system. Metric has been the nation's official system since 1893. The pound and foot and so forth are defined legally as fractions of the official kilogram and meter. But most Americans prefer to ignore the official system in favor of weights and measures that are relics of when this was a British colony. Somehow, inch and foot and mile i National Metric Day ~ Most Americans have kilometers to go before mastering _ the metric system.

Source: Math Counts Length, How Math Works seem to trip easily off the American tongue, which stumbles over liter, meter and gram. Periodically, educators or bureaucrats or reformers try to nudge the nation along the metric path, normally with little success. The 1975 Metric Conversion Act required federal agencies to use the system whenever possible in business activities, though exemptions have been granted. AP/Amy Kranz Today, economic self-interest seems to be turning the trick. Change often passes unnoticed. Anyone who reads nutrition labels contemplates milligrams — a metric measure — daily. So do people using 35 mm film. Soft drinks are routinely sold in liter-measured containers. Wine and liquor bottles long ago were changed to metric sizes. And cars and other products seeking to compete overseas generally are made to metric specifications. Yet metric has failed to take hold in what lannelli calls "cultural areas, where we have an ingrained culture, tradition, habit." He cites highway speed limits, temperatures given in weather reports and "things you buy loose in the market." Meat and potato salad, for example, still are sold by the pound, and other items by the bushel or the dozen. "Let's say I went to buy a pound of hamburger and I found the store selling it in kilograms," lannelli said. "I'd be a little startled and rather worried." Indeed, that was Americans' reaction a few years ago when some service stations sought to market gasoline in liters — resistance was loud and persistent until gallons returned. Largely because the public didn't want the change and partly because of the $200 million cost, Congress also last year eliminated a requirement that road signs be in metric. Nevertheless, some states still are installing metric signs with overlays showing speeds and distances in miles. They expect that someday, the mile overlays will simply be peeled away. That seems a distant possibility. But with time and new generations, things do change. Teaching of the metric system is on the increase, generally in junior high schools, with little resistance from pupils. "We're really talking about a new language, and do you then give up your old language?" lanneUi said. "A lot of people fear giving up language they know." T NUCLEAR ENERGY Group calls for shutdown of 'nuclear lemons' Critical Mass Energy Project wants 25 nuclear reactors closed By ANICK JESDANUN Tile Associated Press WASHINGTON — Nuclear energy critics urged federal regulators Wednesday to begin shutting down almost one-fourth of the nation's nuclear power reactors because of poor safety and economic performance. The Critical Mass Energy Project, an arm of Ralph Nader's Public Citizen consumer advocacy group, described the 25 reactors on its "nuclear lemons" list as disasters waiting to happen. "With so many aging, deteriorating nuclear facilities threatening public health and safety, the (Nuclear Regulatory Commission) should be closing the most dangerous plants and moving aggressively to improve the remaining reactors," said Joan Claybrook, president of Public Citizen. NRC spokesman William Beecher said all nuclear plants operating are safe. "The NRC would not allow a dangerous plant to remain on line," he said. Public Citizen's rankings for the nation's 110 commercial nuclear reactors were based on safety violations, employees' exposure to radiation, emergency shutdowns, operating costs and other 1993-1995 government and industry data. Topping the list was Salem Unit 1 in southern New Jersey. Maintenance problems have kept that reactor and Salem Unit 2, ranked eighth, out of service since spring 1995. Public Service Electric & Gas Co., which operates the two Salem reactors, acknowledged perfor- Doubled reactors Public Citizen's list of what it considers the 25 worst nuclear power reactors, in declining order of distress: 1.

Leigh Ann Marshall of the Nu-i. clear Energy Institute, the indus-5 try's Washington-based trade! group, said the Nader report failedj to consider safety and operating} improvements made by the indus-« try in the past decade. . ! Even the plants on the NRC'sS watch list operate at about the; same levels as the best nuclear re-; actors of a decade ago, she said. « cS Salina Journal QUICK 11-50 .... Announcements 55-213 ...
