The regulations provide that ah employer included on the WMC Ittt of, essential activities may not employ more workers, than he employed-on Oct. 1, 1944, unless he has WMC approval and that those not on the essential lUt may not hire more than 90 per cent of the number of employes they had on that" date. ; HaskeU said ceilings on employment applied only to male workers in Iowa-except at Clinton, where because of a shortage of women workers, the ceilings applied to" both men and women EXPERTS STUDY ENERGY SOURCE See Possibilities.of , Converting Sun Power' Iowa City--Depletion of the ordinary power sources of coal anc oil at a terrific rate .places in creasing importance upon s o m e means of conversion for direct us of sun power, according to Prof George Glockler, head of the Uni varsity of Iowa's department o chemistry. - Â· "Direct solar energy, equal tc 21 billion tons of coal is showered by the sun on to the globe every hour and presents an awe-inspir Ing challenge to-scientists," Prof Gtockler said. : ..

Conversion of the power into photoelectricity, by means of a photoelectric or photonic 'cell is another possible- method, according to Prof. Glockler. Â· . . "The 3rd method is a distinct chemical process. It is expected that future chemists may learn the secret of the most important chemical reaction -- photosyntl^e- sis, as plants carry it out by means of. chlorophyll.. Perhaps some day. we can produce fuels by a \dlrect synthesis, using some reaction akin to the transformations going on in plant cells," declared Prof. Glockler. ,,.' Â·' ' -. . . He stated the possibility t h a t regions like the Sahara and the American deserts may become invaluable andvgreat areas can be imagined as the sites of large lenses, huge reflectors, immense mirrors, and complex electrical apparatus to convert solar heat mtb_6ther'useful forms of energy.
