IRONWOOD DAILY GLOBE, IRONWOOD, MICHIGAN NINE Industry Has Faith in Atomic Energy's Economic Potential QUIET CONTRAST—Smoothly sailing off Honolulu, the 140-ton brlgantine 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. State Bids for Atom Smasher WASHINGTON (AP)—A Mich- Human, Practical Factors in Goldberg's Appointment Noted By JAMES MARLOW Associated Press News Analyst WASHINGTON (AP) — Presl- su- igan delegation headed by Gov.; dent Johnson, in picking George Romney presented ad- preme Court Justice Arthur J. tfitional Information to the Goldberg to be U.S. ambassador Atomic Energy.

Weston I K. Vivian, D-Mich., who is back- i Ing a site near Ann Arbor, and' Paul H. Todd, D-Mlch.. who favors a site at Ft. Ouster. Romney, at the 90-minute meeting, stressed the attributes of Michigan as an educational, recreational and research area and one of great resources. 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 ouild the accelerator in the state. The Michigan group included Glenn T. Seaborg, chairman of the AEC; commissioner Gerald Tate; Paul W. McDaniel, director of research for the AEC; and John Kenney, and aide to McDaniel. About 100 applications were presented to the AEC by the June IB deadline, including the two from Michigan. McDaniel said the AEC has not yet screened the application list but expected this would be clone soon. He said those sites rhat survive the screening will then by given to the National Academy of Sciences. The academy will recommend, probably by the end of the year, where the accelerator should be located. Donald Kigar, president of Detroit Edison Power Co., tow the commissioners that the new rates for power for the Ann Arbor site would be 6.98 nillls per Kilowatt, compared with the previously quoted rate of 7.35 mills. James H. Campbell, president of Consumers Power Co . said the rate available for the Ft. Ouster site would be 6.7 mills per kilowatt. Discussing the Ft. Ouster area, which is expected to be declared surplus by the Army, Romney said his priorities on use of the land would be, in order, for the use of the accelerator, for recreation and for the National Guard. Johnson's action in naming the 56-year-old former lawyer to succeed the late Adlai E. Stevenson, since the atMlity to negotiate and conciliate Is a talent acutely needed in the United Nations. But there were other considerations in Johnson's decision which is another example of how he is not going to follow the usual in selecting men for high office or special assignments. Just recently he selected Negro, Thurgood Marshall, a judge of the U.S. Court of Appeals, to be solicitor general of the United States and third- ranking official in the Justice Department. In naming Goldberg, a Jew, to be the No. 1 Ame-ican ambassador, Johnson was also thinking, of the human side and what it meant in and to this country and in the eyes of the world. He was very conscious of the fact that Goldberg will be dealing with the economic, political and social problems of all the nations, some of them in poverty and just emerging Johnson remembered that while Stevenson came from one of the first families of America, Goldberg whose parents were poor immigrants from Russia, came from one of the latest. The parents settled in Chicago where Goldberg had to work his way through school and as a boy drove through the streets with his father on their fruit- peddler's wagon drawn by a blind horse. After Johnson asked him Tuesday morning to take Stevenson's place, Goldberg uttered a memorable phrase 1 When a Southerner t Johnson can sit In the White House, and a Negro (Marshall) as solicitor ment's cases before the Supreme Court, and a Jew can sit" in the United Nations and 'represent the United States before the world — that's what America is. 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. Johnson considers Goldberg a man without prejudice or bigotry and one who has a logical and judicial mind and is fair to everybody. He feels that Goldberg, who has long been concerned about international •. labor problems, has demonstrated his compassion for the people of the world. And, in Johnson's thinking,the fact that Goldberg Is giving up a lifetime job at $39,600 a year on the court for the ambassador's job at only $30,000 shows his concern and compassion. , Although Goldberg's career Engineers who worked lO, A vas law, and he is not widely Traffic Control Computer tested DETROIT (AP)—A computer hitched to 90 miles of electric wiring may set the style for future control of America's automobile traffic..

(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 mile tour.) By ROBERT COCHNAR Newspaper Enterprise Assn. 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 mere 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 Nevadas are brick- and-mortar testimony tn 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 pow n r for centur-j ies. 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 their people. When the Atomic Energy Commission was created in 1946 to assume responsibility forthen?tion- al nuclear energy program which had been controlled by the military since 1942, it took charge of $2 billion worth of plants and laboratories. And eight realtors. These reactors, rudimentary in design and used essentially for producing plutonium, formed the basis of what today is a thriving civilian industry with fantastic potential. Though the AEC in 1951 produced the world's first useful nuclear electricity (a reactor-gen- rator hookup at the Nation a 1 Reactor Testing Station in Idaho lighted four 200-watt bulbs) it was not until 1954, with the passage of the Atomic Energy Act, that private industry was encouraged to participate ir. the atomic energy program. The trend was spotlighted several months ago when . Commonwealth Edison Co. in Chicago contracted with GE! to build the biggest atomic power station thus far — 700,000-kilwatt unit to cost $76 million. This plant—called Dresden II— will add almost 70 per cent to the 1.1 million watts of generating capacity the nuclear Industry had built in its short life. Significantly, Dresden II power will be generated and delivered to the Chicago area at a cost of 5 to 10 per cent lower than power from Commonwealth Edison's new conventional units now under construction— a major economic breakthrough. As AEC Chairman Glenn Sea- bprg points out, "Nuclear power has now reacted the point where, In some areas, it is considered economically competitive" with -coal-fired power. But the question is often asked: Why bother with atomic energy when power" from conventional sources—coal, oil, water, gas—is so abundant? The answer is sooering. Natural fuels are not a.* abundant as many would like to think. It has been estimated that we use as much energy from But no resource—even uranium —is limitless. Dr. Alvin W e 1 n- berg, director of the AEC's Oak Ridge. National Laboratory, told me that the uranium whichiseco- nomically convertible to atomic fuel will be running out by 1980. Were It not for a startling scien- tific development, the great demand for future power could not be satisfied. \ Nuclar reactors now "on the line," Weinberg says, use only a very small fraction of the latent energy contained in the uranium. Processes have been found, however, to convert the larger fraction into usable reactor fuel. Reactors—called breeders—are now being developed that will ial than they consume This will provide enough nuclear tuej to satisfy all future energy requirements, be no such Though there may gadget as a "perpetual motion machine." the remarkable breeder reactor very nearly fills the bill Research on and development of the breeder reactors are still the prime responsibility of the Atomic Energy Commission, but produce more fissionable mater- private Industry—capitalizing on AEC basic research—has taken on the job of improving tne current type of reactors. At GE's labs in San Jose and nearby Vallecitoa, 3 ouo scientists, engineers, technicians and administrators are searching foi ways to improve and reduce the cost of reactors. The estimated competitive price of Comm on wealth Edison's Dresden II reactor is proof that their intensive work is paying off ERSPAMER Mr. and Mrs. William Raatik-jt em ". traffic control ka have recently returned home from' Detroit where they spent their vacation visiting relatives and friends.
