WEDNESDAY, JULY 21, 1965. IRONWOOD DAILY GLOBE, IRONWOOD, MICHIGAN NINE Industry Has Faith in Atomic Energy's Economic Potential (Editor's Note: This Is another in a series of dispatches telling the story of atomic energy on its 2th birthday. The report was written from San Jose, Calif., one stop on a 10,000 inlle tour.) QUIET CONTRAST—Smoothly sailing off Honolulu, the 140-ton brigantlne Thetis is approached from the stern by the 26,000-ton liner Lurllne. The Thetis, featured in the movie "Hawaii," made a striking contrast with the modern liner, which was bound for San Francisco.

Romney Invited the commission to make a tour of the proposed sites. He also said the land would be made available to the AEC If it decides to onild the accelerator in the state. The Michigan group included Glenn T. Seaborg, chairman of (he AEC; commissioner Gerald Tate; Paul W. McDaniel, di- j rector of research for the AEC; j and John Kenney. and aide to McDaniel. About 100 applications were presented to the AEC by the June 15 deadline, including the two from Michigan.

Johnson feels that Goldberg is not only experienced in working with men of other nations for years (in various tasks he undertook) but is socially conscious. Johnson, then vice president, and Goldberg, then labor secretary, were chairman and vice chairman of the committee on Equal Employment Opportunity which President John F Kenne dy created in 1961. Johnson recalls with pleasure Goldberg's part in that.

SAN JOSE, Calif— (NEA) — American industrialists are notoriously prudent. Even the most daring" wouldn't invest millions of his stockholder's dollars in blue-sky projects if tl^ere wasn't a good chance of making a profit. That's why General Electric's vast atomic laboratories and equipment plants in the foothills of the Sierra Neva-las are brick- and-mortar testimony to private industry's faith in the vast economic potential of atomic energy. GE's investment of $37 million in an industry litt ; e more than 10 years old is a strong indication that this company—and other industrial adventurers, too— sees a fortune in the atom. Everybody has a stake in that fortune: The consumer, because he'll pay a lot less for his electricity. The ousinessman, because he'll be able to build his factories anywhere in the country—geography is of no concern to nuclear energy. The country, because the tremendous and practically inexhaustible energy in the atom has guaranteed sufficient low-cost powr for centuries. The world community benefits, too, because underdeveloped nations without natural sources of] energy will be able to import nuclear power to run their industries and bring light, heat and hope to theit people.

And eight realtors. These reactors, rudimentary in design and used essentially for producing plutcnium, formed the basis of what today is a thriving civilian industry with fantastic potential.

But the question is often asked: Why bother with atomic when power from conventional sources—coal oil, water, gas—is so abundant? The answer is sobering. Natural fuels are not as abundant as many would like to think. It has been estimated that we will use as much energy from fuel over the next 21 years as we used from the American Revolution to the present day. Taking this into account, we would experience some effects of depletion of natural fuel resourc e only two or three generations hence. the traffic rived home from Finland where \ con ^] •• she flew by a Pan Amerlc an 1 Airlines jet a month ago t o visit with relatives.
