(AP) Atomic Energy Commission scientists said Tuesday extraordinary precautions will be taken to prevent radioactive leakage in the storing of atomic wastes. The scientists gave the assurances to a delegation from Kansas where the commission proposed to establish a National Nuclear Waste Repository in abandoned salt mines. Roger Dahlman, an ecologist at Oak Ridge National Labora-j tory, outlined in detail steps the commission plans to take to prevent any damage to the en-' vironment in the area of the salt mines at Lyons, Kan. ! Dahlman said sophisticated monitoring devices will be set: up both above and under ground to detect any possible I radioactivity that might devel-! op from the storing of the I wastes. Said Miniscule He described the possibilities' as miniscule. He said that Inin-f dreds of cargoes of radioactive j materials have been shipped across tiie country in past several years without a single major nuclear incident. The AFC has made no definite decision to set up the waste repository at Lyons, buti mines there are under consider- 1 ation as the site. "We will have an extensive monitoring program to detect any possible radiation escape," Dahlman said. Tiie scientist said the monitoring program would be developed in cooperation with officials of the Kansas Public Health Department.

(AP) - The Eisenhower Center here, which has kept growing since a foundation formed by Kansans first conceived a tribute to Dwight David Eisenhower a quarter century ago, takes note of a significant milestone Oct. 14. The greatly expanded Eisenhower Museum, one of the four structures which make up the Eisenhower Center on 13.4 acres of land on the south side of this Kansas plains town rich in western lore, will be rededicated. Dignitaries, including Mrs. Mamie Eisenhower, widow of the late president, and other members of the family will attend the ceremonies, which also mark the 81st. anniversary of Eisenhower's birth. Grandson Invited President Nixon, whose daughter, Julie, is married to Eisenhower's grandson, David, has been invited to attend, and sponsors of the festivities are encouraged he will come. Gen. Lauris Norstad, who succeeded Eisenhower in command of the North Atlantic Treatv Organization force in Europe in the late 1940s, will speak. The affair will again focus attention on the Eisenhower Center, comprised of the plain white frame home in which Eisenhower grew up, the Place of Meditation where the famed soldier-statesman was buried in April 1969. the Eisenhower Libran' and the museum. The museum, built in 1952-54 during Ike's first term as president, has been nearly doubled in size, providing what its curator believes is room to house the most complete presidential museum in the nation. It will be five years before it is com- Big Addition pletely developed. The museum formerlv encompassed 20,000 square feet of floor space. Another 15 ,000 square feet have been added on the north side, running the length of the original museum. The addition was begun in May 1970 and was completed in I mid-August. Curator William K. Tones and his staff have worked feverishly in recent weeks to prepare the new museum for Thursday's reopening to the public, and for the rededication ceremonies a week later. The museum has been closed more than a year. They have completed two of the four galleries planned for the museum, and the public can begin viewing these two ffaHeries Thursday. Admission is 50 cents. Attendance, which reached a peak of one million visitors in 19(59, may be spurred beyond that by the addition. Tomorrow Noon at HICKORY GABLES §22 West 4th Beef and Noodles Special 97* Hutchinson Theater Guild Presents j "Catch Me If You Can" Thursday, Friday, Saturday October 7,8 & 9 Curtain Time: 8:15 p.m. Tickets: $1.75 Reservations: Days 2-6669, Evenings 2-7779 THE LITTLE THEATER Avenue B and Pluin One completed gallery depicts the life of Eisenhower from his boyhood days in Abilene, through his military career, through the presidency to his death and burial here. The other features works of art presented to the 34th President of the United States and duplicates of gifts he gave the world leaders. Work Remains Other galleries to be completed later will stress his military career and his eight years as president, 1953-61. The area which will in a month or so house the presidential gallery will be used Oct. 14 for a luncheon with former U.S. Sen. Harry Darby of Kansas City, Kan., as host. The Eisenhower Center lies just south of the business district of Abilene, the famed cattle town of a century ago where Texas longhoms were driven overland to the railroad. Enlargement of the museum — to provide for display of nearly twice as much Eisenhower memorabilia — does not finish plans for the center. In the works in addition of a nearly Si million visitor's reception center. And on the horizon are plans for the center to acquire the two acres-plus now occupied by Abilene's Lincoln elementary school so the center will have a completely rectangular piece of land. The grade school cuts off one corner of a four-square block area occupied by the center. To Close Street Eventual plans call for closing Fourth Street, which now runs through the center, and turning it into a mall. John E. Wickman, director of the Eisenhower Library across the street from the museum and the man in over-all charge of the entire center for the General Services Administration, said a principal advantage the addition to the museum affords is a better traffic pattern for visitors. Immediately following Eisenhower's death on April 29, 1969, at age 79, and his subsequent burial here, the museum handled 9.000 visitors a dav. The pedestrian traffic jam was monumental, however, in the entry way of the museum as visitor 1 ; crisscrossed going from one of the two galleries to the other. Addition of tire 15,000 square feet enables the museum not only to add two more galleries, but also to establish a flow of traffic in one counterclockwise direction through the museum. This will enable the museum to handle 25,000 visitors daily, Wickman said. "Teaching Museum" Curator Jones stressed the educational aspects of the museum, calling it a "teaching museum." "I believe we not only have an obligation to show the people these objects, but I think we also have an obligation to show them the importance of what he (Eisenhower) did as a military man and as president," Jones said. Before, he said, "there was really no story to what the museum was trying to tell." Wickman said, "The addition and new museum give us the best chance we have ever had to educate the visiting public. The whole thing was planned for the protection of the exhibits and convenience of the public. It will have a tremendous impact on Abilene. "This is the first really quality biograplucal museum between St. Louis and Denver." Plenty cf Material Besides the physical plant the museum now boasts, it is unique in that it has so many items of Ike paraphernalia with which to work. The museum's collection to tals 20.000 items — all of it from the Eisenhower family or "official" sources and none solicited from the public — but heretofore only about 6,000 items at a time could be ciis played. Jones is grateful for the collection program before Ike's death which produced such a volume of objects. "I think the general's attitude was that these things belonged to the people, and he made certain it all came out here," Jones said. The new museum, with offices, storage space and a large restoration and repair room, is a dream for a curator, Jones said. "This is the first chance anyone has ever had to bring these objects under the best possible physical control, because unless you can control humidity and temperature over a long period of time, you're going to get deterioration," he said. No Direct Light The new museum has lights placed so there is no direct ultra violet light attack on the objects, and constant humidity and temperature control per- vents wood and metal from being damaged. About the oulv thing that's not changed at the museum is the entry way. which has the "Flaming Sword of Avenging Justice" shield of Ike's World War II European headquarters imbedded in the floor and has murals around the walls depicting his career. A unique feature of the new portion of the building is a large window area where objects can be displayed for the public to view when the museum is closed. Present plans are to place World War IT vehicles, including Ike's Cadillac staff car, in this area. • TODAY • The Hutch Downtowner 1st. & Main has Pork Chops OTTC and Dressing ft NOW! 2nd BIG WEEK!
