Hire New Officers With Federal Funds GREAT BEND—A three year federal grant received by the Barton County sheriff's office has allowed the office to increase its manpower and expand services. "The grant will be a great help to us," said Sheriff Marion Weese, "and allow us to increase our services in many different ways." Two men were added to the department Oct. 1, bringing the force up to nine men. Hired were Doyle White, a former Great Bend fireman, and Bob Tomlinson, Hoisington. White had been a captain of Lyons Only Site Studied OAK RIDGE, Tenn. (AP)An abandoned salt-mine complex at Lyons, Kan., is the only site currently being considered by the Atomic Energy Commission as a national re* pository for radioactive waste, an AEC spokesman said Wednesday. "Other sites are now being used, but as far as a national respository for high-level, long- term wastes from nuclear power plants goes, Lyons is the only one being considered," the spokesman said. The spokesman added that the AEC initiated last week a "paper -study only" investigation of possible alternate sites in Kansas, but emphasized that the Lyons site has received prime consideration since June of 1970. • • • Wants to Tell AEC To Leave Kansas TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) - U.S. Rep. Joe Skubitz, R-Kan., called on Kansas state officials to join him in telling the Atomic Energy Commission now to take its plans for a national nuclear waste repository and get out of Kansas. "In so doing, I believe you will have the support and appa- roval of the overwhelming majority of the citizens of our state," Skubitz said in a wire he sent Wednesday to Gov. Robert Docking, Lt. Gov. Reynolds Shultz, Atty. Gen. Vern Miller, Senate President Pro Tern Glee S. Smith and House Speaker Calvin Strowig, seeking bipartisn support. Skubitz also made public a telegram which U.S. Rep. John P. Saylor, R-Pa., sent to Dr. James R. Schlesinger, chairman of the Atomic Energy Commission, asking the AEC to be more candid with Congress in the future. the Barton County sheriff's reserve deputies, formerly worked for the South Hutchinson police department and has been a reserve officer on the Hutchinson Police Department reserves. Tomlinson, a retired Air Force serviceman, was a member of the Hoisington police reserves. Two other officers, Jack Atteberry and Bob Yost, were promoted to lieutenants and will be working in traffic and accident invetigation. The federal grant under the Federal Highway Safety Act provides 75 per cent of the salaries of the two new men for two years and will pay 50 per cent for the third year. The $55,837 matching grant, which breaks down to $34,518 from the federal government and $21,319 from the county, also pays 50 per cent toward equipment for the men including guns, uniforms and equipment needed for patrol duty and traffic such as patrol car radios, sirens, lights and emergency equipment. Gives Mileage It also provides five cents per mile up to 40,000 miles per year for patrol or accident investigation travel. The need to increase manpower became severe after July I when the Highway Patrol began concentrating its efforts on state and federal highways, leaving county and township accidents to be worked by local officers. From January to July 1, 1971, the sheriff's office worked 34 accidents, leaving the others to the Highway Patrol. In a 90-day period after the Highway Patrol withdrew, the local office worked 76 accidents, the sheriff said. With the federal help, Weese said he hoped his, office would be able to reduce the number of accidents on county roads. Two-thirds of the accidents in Barton County occur on county and township roads. Two Bound Over on Calf Theft Charge Billy Joe Cross, 22, 322 East V, and "John William Schoenhoff Jr., 20, 700 West 15th, were bound over to district court Wednesday morning on charges of grand larceny. They are accused of shooting a 120-pound heifer calf belonging to Fred Hoth. Sheriff's Deputy Merlin Mortimer had stopped the car the two allegedly were in to write a ticket for failure to dim headlights for oncoming traffic. When he walked to the back of the car to copy the tag number, he allegedly saw blood dripping from the trunk and subsequently found the calf in the trunk. Each posted a $1,000 bond in magistrate court Wednesday.

Would Use Armored Vehicle Cimarron Lad Has Top Crossbreed CIMARRON - An 18-year-old Cimarron youth showed his 1,195-pound crossbreed steer to the grand championship at the Kansas National Junior Livestock Show at Wichita Tuesday. The hali'-Charolais, half-Angus named Brut was selected tops from 303 steers in the show. "I can hardly believe it's true," said Greg R. Schartz, son of Mr. and Mrs. John F. Schartz Sr., Cimarron. The steer had been named grand champion at the Gray County Fair and placed third in his class at the State Fair in Hutchinson., Greg said he had named the| steer Brut because he "smelled good," much like a well advertised cologne for men. This was the second year he has shown in the Kansas National. AGreatShoe ...Free-Flex If you're looking for a new shoe... look at a great one... Freeman Free-Flex!

(AP) Scientists would have a 90 per cent chance of catching and examining a tornado in Kansas or Oklahoma if they stood on alert through one twister season, a University of Notre Dame engineer said Wednesday. Dr. Bruce Morgan is working on a four-month preliminary study started Sept. I by the National Severe Storms Laboratory, a Commerce Department agency at Norman, Okla. To Meet in January Participating scientists will meet at Norman in January and make detailed plans for the Tornado Detection, Tracking and Interception Study. They want to look closely at a twister from outside. Then, perhaps in 1973, Dr. Morgan believes they can plunge into the debris spinning at hundreds of miles per hour. "We have to do this a step at a time," Dr. Morgan said, "but I feel personally that we can approach a tornado closely with ordinary vehicles by knowing its path, then enter it later with an armored vehicle." Must Be Certain Before getting too involved, the study group had to be rea­ sonably certain it could make close contact with a tornado, which moves fast along a narrow strip. Dr. Morgan fed data on lifes­ pans of storms and probabilities of tornado occurrences into a computer. "I 'spawned' 160,000 tornadoes," he said, "and attempted to go after them with intercept techniques I learned from the Army and Navy ROTC units here." He concluded lie could get close to about one in 20 twisters with a 50 m.p.h. vehicle, in open country such as Oklahoma and Kansas. For the actual entry vehicle, which would be carried on a flatbed truck, Dr. Morgan proposes a military personnel carrier sheathed in 5-inch armor plate, completely "buttoned up" and navigated through a periscope. Little is known about what happens at the center of a big twister. The project leaders hope they can learn how to build more tornado-resistant buildings and how to develop a more efficient warning system. Dr. Morgan has been studying tornadoes since long before the current project started. Page 14 The Hutcbiiwon Ncw» Thursday, Oct. 7, 1971 Ferguson Appeals Shoplifting Case Bennie L.
