H GRBEI.EY (Coin.) TRIBUNE Mon., Mny 1, 19721 As Boyle Sees It By HAL BOYLE By ROBERT E. FORD Associated Prtjs Wrlltr For HAL BOYLE DALLAS, Tex. (AP) - Today is a special sort of day. It's like getting off work early for (he game. Or sneaking out an office worker is free nt seems midafternoon is Inn. Then he realizes Iliat lie has an extra hour during which he must mow the lawn, trim the shrubs nnri do other chores his wife tins Itmught up for him. He ahead of quilting time when the can't beg off because lioss has liis head turned Hie other way. Look nround you at (lie short shadows and the warmth of the air sense that you've been released for a min- 1 ivacalion. .What it is is Ihe firsl working : 'day after Daylight Saving Time resumes. Not everyone will be happy about tire clock changes. The freshest, most provocative complaint comes from a '·man who says Daylight Saving may be the ruination of the nation's morals, or slightly so. He is Bill Rau of San Antonio. For a proper understanding of his position, you should he infrmed that the gentleman operates a drive-In motion pic hire lot. His argument Is that the sun darkens drive-in movie screens so lale in the evening that the only customers he can lure into his place are adults who plan to make a night of it anyway. Children should be in bed by the time the screen grows dark enough to show motion pictures. Therefore, said Ran, all he can show profitably are the X and R-rated films. In the winter, Rau told a leg islative bearing, he largely shows family type pictures. The first couple of days ihat dark lo see." Ho cnn try to avoid the chores by claiming that he is worn out because lie lost an hour's sleep when Ihe time changerl. Bui that plea can't stand up more than n couple of days For he can look forward to regaining Ihat hour of sleep the ast Sunday in October when Standard Time returns. Jusl lough it put fo five months The self-discipline, of wife-dis- 'it's too cipline, be good for his character or something. A movement is afoot to keep Daylight Saving throughout the year, permitting people to walk crime-prone areas during day light hours and permitting chil dren to return home school when there is from more light. It gets pretty dark far (her north by midaffernoon in the winter. Ten years from now, some may want to set time ahead again. Repeat that for a few decade: and all the rest of us may ge even with those who keep wha we call in envy, "bankers hours." Think of banks announcing they will be open from "mid night to 3 in the morning.' Hal Doyle is ill. Comprehensive Exams Urgec Before Wagon Wheel Blast BfG PINEY, Wyo. (AP) Southwestern Wyoming residents were assured Saturday by backers of Project Wagon Whee! and outside specialists that there is little potential danger from the proposed underground nuclear stimulation project slated to go off in Ihe fall of 1973. But several of the specialists urged comprehensive testing before going ahead with commercial development of nalural gas reserves through nuclear explosions. And the El Paso Natural Gas Co. said it will be at least 1977 before subsequent blasts are set off. The occasion was a five-hour public meeting called by the W yo m i n g Wildlife Federation and the Green River Valley Cattlemen's Association on the project proposed by El Paso under the supervision ol the Atomic Energy Commission. Wagon Wheel would involve five sequential 100-kiIolon nuclear blasts in conlrast to the smaller one-blast stimulalion experiments--Project Rulison in Colorado and Project Gas Buggy in New Mexico. El Paso Nuclear Group _. rector Philip Randolph told the some 800 persons attending the informational meeting that "no guinea pigs live here." He said the project is a lest only in the sense that the explosive devices will be spaced at varying depths to determine the best posilion for fracturing the rock formations which trap natural gas. Randolph said studies by El Paso indicate the project will be safer than previous experiments, resulting in less residual tritium radiation and less structural damage than Project Hulison. He emphasized that results from the two previous experimental blasts show that the explosions are both safe and ef- . fective. Peler Henaull, nuclear scien- . list for (he Argonne National Laboratories in Arco, Idaho, disputed the need for Wagon . Wheel on the basis of chronic energy shortages. He said Americans should learn lo get along wilhoul some of (he "electric gadgels" which . are part of daily life a.d ener- .gy companies should slop "' "doing such a great job of sell Ing us (heir products." some underground balance dis turbances necessarily would re suit from the nuclear blasl fracturing the rock. But he said he finds it hope ful (hat non-government scien tisls are coming forward f question AEG studies and ex plain projects to (he public when (hey have "nothing t lain and everything to lose." The veto power of Wyoming's jovernor over such nuclea tesls, explained Dr. Kelt! Schaiger of Colorado Stale Uni versity, extends only to slop ping subsequent blasts if speci: ic damages or harm can b demonstrated from the inilia experiment. He recommended that th stale obtain authority to mon tor radiation emissions from the project and maintain con trols al the site. Most critical of the experts a the hearing was Dr. Rober Pendleton, radiation ecologis at the University of Utah. He said the drilling rigs ne essary for future developmei of gas reserves in the are would scar the land and (ha commercial recovery of nalura gas in the area was doubtful. Pendlefon also warned tha overconfidence could sometim result in an accident during nuclear experiment allhough h said there is litlle present dan ger. "We should ask questions, he said, "because of the qualit of our living and we should try! to keep il if we can." Pendleton also said the nuclear fuel used ir: Wagon Wheel might he put lo better use in nuclear breeder reactors to produce electrical energy. Dr. Donald Allred, terrestrial ecologist at Brigham Young University, said he is not opposed to the project if adequate checks follow to determine adverse effects on animals and plants. "Alarmists are giving a bad name to us professionals," Allred said, but he acknowledged thai environmenlalisls have legitimately alerted people (o potential hazards. The stale's interest in the blasl, according to Dr. Willard Reilin, University of Wyoming radiological coo/'linator, is ils affects on human and economic aspccls. He said the stale will v/atch Ihe firsl fesl wilh an open mind and follow up on the results.
