3» GREELEY (Cota) TRIBUNE jjurs.. May 26.1977 documents not By VIVIAN BROWN AP Neu features Putting precious documents-perhaps even old love letters, in a filing cabinet or little tin box or other ineial container may be like pulling them in oven--' they'll be well done in a jieffy in the event of a fire. Some unfortunate people have had that experience. In fact, a million, or so of such containers are sold each year !o people who use them for for that purpose, points out Richard F. Brush, whose firm makes fireproof safes. "Many people think that metal containers are automatically fireproof, but' the box will only centralize the contents." A tight pack, however, has less chance of burning because less oxygen can, he notes.' There is a lot of confusion about what really Is fireproof, Brush explains. Some years ago, a material was touted as fireproof because it was the same type that was used by as- tronauts, "but the difference was that the astronaut used it with other materials." Used alone, the material conducted heat to burn and char. In 1930 his father, John D. Brush, started the Rochester, N. V. firm, touted as the largest maker of U.S. (Underwriters Laboratories) rated fireproof safes and a wide variety of protective containers, that Have been sold mainly to businesses and institutions. Now that the "entire home security field has exploded," there has been a demand for home safes with some people acquiring large safes for home use and requests for less expensive units. This was one reason the company was prompted to design some smaller boxes such as a home record mini-safe, that can fit into a cabinet, and a small fire safety box, called the Survivor," which is approximately 13 by 8 by- 8 inches and may be the smallest fire safe available. "The little box of 35 pounds has an inner core of vermiculite, foaming agenl, water, concrete and another material and was designed to have the same degre* of fir* protection as much larger safes," adds Brush, who is president of the company. "There is really no such thing as a fireproof container if a fire gets hot enough and is of long exposure. A bos must meet the standard one-hour fire endurance test-heat that begins at zero and goes to 1700 degrees in SO minutes. The average house fire you might have very high winds, say on a farm." he explained. Such safes can protect valuables in natural disasters, but "to be fire resistive, no safe can be 100 per cent waterproof," Brush points out. So they aren't floodproof. But flood risk can be reduced by installation of a safe above the high water level. '^ft!fft© Wii^S^^S*:' l^|;!tf'P@^''.

TAYLOR ATLANTA (UPD-After the harshest winter in years, many Americans dream of basking in the warm spring and summer sun, but a leading skin specialist says- they should do so with caution. Even in the early morning and late afternoon, the sun's rays can play a role in causing skin cancer and other serious skin problems, according to Dr. Isaac Willis, chief of dermatology at the VA Hospital in Atlanta and associate professor of medicine at the' Emory University School of Medicine. It generally has been believed that the long wavelength ultraviolet light emitted by the sun in the early morning and late afternoon, was relatively harmless. But Willis said recent studies with humans and experimental animals have shown that.long ultraviolet light -- UVL for short --can produce an effect termed "photo-augmentation." This effect, according to Willis, makes the skin-more suscepti- Carr community news By MRS. W, D. CHADW1CK May 17 -- The Ladles Aid Society met Wednesday afternoon at the home of Mrs. Randall Yates.

The short rays are more' 'prevalent when the s.uh is directly overhead, between the hours of 10 ajn. and 2 p.m. Willis ' said that for many years, doctors have bejieved that people can avoid sunburn | and other ill effects of short UVL by protecting their skin in' the mid-portion of the day. · However, in recent experU rrients with hairless mice, Willis has' shown' that exposure to radiation containing mostly long ultraviolet waves can produce the "photo-augmentation" leading to skin cancer, pre-cancerous changes · and premature aging of the skin. Also, according, to Willis, the long light, has been _shown to I cause pre^ancerous changes in°l the skin of human subjects. " "We believe the. long UVL will also produce.human skin cancer but we're not planning to . demonstrate this in humans," Willis said. The research effort has shown that even modest doses of long UVL in the morning and late afternoon will make a person "at least three times as sensitive to short UVL radiation as he would have been without it," Willis said..
