the small society by Brickman Precautions Would be Big At Lyons Site OAK RIDGE, Tenn. (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 delegatipn 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 Laboratory, outlined in detail steps the commission plans to take to prevent any damage to the environment 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 radioactivity that might develop from the storing of the wastes. Said Miniscule He described the possibilities as miniscule. He said that hundreds of cargoes of radioactive materials have been shipped across the 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, but mines there are under consideration as the site. "We will have an extensive monitoring program to detect any possible radiation escape," Dahlman said. The 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.

Lauris Norstad, who succeeded Eisenhower in command of the North Atlantic Treaty 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 isenhower grew up, the Place of Meditation where the famec soldier-statesman was buried in April 1969. the Eisenhower Li orary and the museum. The museum, built in 1952-54 during Ike's first term as president, has been nearly doubled in sizs. providing what its cura tor believes is room to . hous< the most complete presidentia museum in the nation. It wil be five years b?fore it is com Big Addition pletely developed. The museum formerly en compassed 20,000 square feet o floor space. Another 15,000 square feet have been added on the north side, running th> length of the original museum. The addition was begun in May 1970 and was completed i mid-August, Curator William K throwing, Indian novelty acts and other western entertainment.

Hutchinson Theater Guild Presents 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 Plum Jones and his staff hav worked feverishly in recen weeks to prepare the new mu seum for Thursday's reopening to the public, and for the rede" dication ceremonies a week la' er. The museum has bae closed more than a year. They have completed two the four galleries planned fo the museum, and the publi can begin viewing these tw galleries Thursday. Admissio is 50 cents. Attendance, which reached peak of one million visitors 1969, may be' spurred beyon that by the.addition. One completed gallery dep-i cts the life'of Eisenhower from us boyhood days in Abilene, trough his military career, irough the presidency to Ms eath and burial here. The oth- T features works of art presented to the 34th President of he United States and dupli- ates of gifts he gave the world eaders. Work Remains Other galleries to be completed later will stress his mili- ary career and his eight years as president, 1953-61. The area which will in a nonth or so house the presiden- ial gallery will be used Oct. 14 or a luncheon with former U.S. Sen. Harry Darby of Kansas ity, Kan., as host. The Eisenhower Center lies ust south of the business dis- rict of Abilene, the famed :attle town of a century ago vhere Texas longhorns were driven overland to the railroad. Enlargement of the museum — to provide for display of learly twice as much Eisen- lower memorabilia — does not inish plans for the center. In the works in addition of a nearly $1 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 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 o the Eisenhower Library across the street from the museum and the man in over-all charge of the entire center for the Gen eral Sendees. Administration said a principal advantage th addition to the museum afford is a better traffic pattern fo visitors. Immediately following Eisen hower's death on April 29, 1969 at age 79, and his subsequen burial here, the museum han died 9,000 visitors a day. Th pedestrian traffic jam wa monumental, however, in th entry way of the museum a visitors crisscrossed going from one of the two galleries to th other. Addition of the 15,000 squar feet enables the museum no only to add two more galleries but also to establish a flow raffic in one counterclockwise Irection through the museum. This will enable the museum to andle 25,000 visitors daily, Vickman said. "Teaching Museum" Curator Jones stressed the ducational aspects of the mu- eum, calling it a "teaching museum." "I believe we not only have i obligation to show the oeople these objects, but I think •e also have an obligation to how them the importance of vhat he (Eisenhower) did as a nilitary man and as presi- ent," Jones said. Before, he said, "there was eally no story to what the mu- eum was trying to tell." Wickman said, "The addition and new museum give us the >est .chance we have ever had educate the visiting public. Tie whole thing was planned or the protection of the exhib- ts and convenience of the pubic. It will have a tremendous impact on Abilene. "Tliis is the first really quali- y biographical museum between St. Louis and Denver." Plenty of Material Besides the physical plant the nuseum now boasts, it is inique in that it has so man> terns of Ike paraphernalia witi which to work. The museum's collection to als 20,000 items — all of i from the Eisenhower family or ''official" sources and 'none so- icited from the public — bu leretofore only about 6,(KX items at a time could be dis played. Jones is grateful for the col lection program before Ike' death which produced such volume of objects. • TODAY • The Hutch Downtowner 1st. & Main has Pork Chops aud Dressing NOW! 2nd BIG WEEK!
