PAGE SIXTEEN THE PHAROS-TRIBUNE and LOGANSPORT PRESS, LOGANSPORT, INDIANA JiUNDAY, MAY 20,1962 Six Injured, Two Seriously, In Headon Crash Af Deedsville PERU—Six persons were injured, two seriously, in a headon auto collision which occurred: at 10:30 a.m. Saturday on the .Deedsville Road, two miles west of Deedsville. The injured were Mrs. Evelyn Wray, 40. of Deedsville, injuries to both ankles, mouth and several teeth' knocked out: Mrs. Sandra Bowman, 19, 457 E. Main St., lacerations about the face, a neck injury and possible concussion. Also Carl D: demons', 22, Route 1, Macy,: fracturel left leg, an injury to his right arm arid lacerations 'about the face, Robert demons, 27, Route 1, Macy, very severe facial lacerations and the la*ter's son, Robert, 5, lacterations on his back and head. •Officers reporte"! that Mrs. Wray, driving a 1960 model car was accompanied by Mrs. Bow- inan, Mrs. Steininger and several small children. They were'enroute east when their car was hit head- on by tlje 1956 vehicle driven, by Carl demons. The accident occurred at the crest of a hill and according to the officers, demons was attempting to pass another car. Both cars were listed total losses. The injured were brought to Dukes Hospital in the McCain ambulance and a passing motorist, James Estep of Route 4, Rochester. State Trooper John -Rusie and Dave Richardson investigated.

She was treated at Dukes Hospital. Peru police reported that the woman was in the appartment of S. Sgt. Herman Jones, 602 W. Second St., when Walter Feltz' ol Kokomo, entered the apartmen! and attacked her. The woman told police she planned to file charges agaihsi Feltz Monday. An Ohio policeman grabbed a man with an envelope full of lottery tickets and made it 'clear he wasn't taking any chances. A Paris inspiration . . .

The glass roof is in the upper left corner of the picture. Between the rafters in Picture 2 are the reflectors and tubes that absorb the heat. In Picture 4 the four control boxes activate the circulation pumps in Picture 5 to give ,heat storage to the proper zone according to the heat available. The small pipes between the beams^ in Picture 6 comprise the tinder-floor radiator. The larger pipes are experimental air ducts which are no longer used. The six small circles outside the basement represent the perimeter toils which heat the walls of the' basement. The vertical lines at the bottom indicate the coils from which high heat is transferred into' the ground. (Staff Photo.) System then is moved back to the roo'f to be re-heated. The cooling system works in! a similar manner, except in reverse. On a cool day, say in the 30s, the earth- will warm the walls of the basement, Hot air, being lighter than cold air, rises, warming the- upstairs. On a cold day when more heat is needed, fluid circulates from the ground to a coil underneath, the floor. The amount of heat also can be regulated in another way. The storage area in the ground, which measures about 128,000 cubic feet depending on the size of the nouse, is divided into heating /iones, High heat collected on a hot day will 'be stored in one area and low heat collected on a warm day will be stored in another. The thermostat pulls the heat from whatever zone is needed. Hervey estimates the healing and cooling system can be installed in the average now three- bedroom house for about $1,800. Hervey says this cost will be lowered as production increases. It can be used in two-and three- story homes, as we,ll as single- level homes. It also" can be installed in commercial buildings, In fact, the larger the building, the more efficiently the device operates. THE HEATING and cooling systems can be used separately. The cooling plant can be installed in older houses inexpensively, whereas the heating plant would be impractical. Once installed, the only operating expense is electricity for the pump—about $10 a year. Since there are few moving parts, there would be few repairs. "It took 10 years to produce the first model, "Hervey 'said, "bul now only engineering refinements and marketing lie ahead. My nexl job is to interest developers in different areas of the country in (tie project. Money will have to be raised and factories built. Even so I think we can be in large- scale production within three or four years. I hope so." Certainly onyone considering the purchase of a heating or cooling unit hopes so too. A Lbgansport man has invented method of heating'and cooling louses with solar energy that will cost about $10 a year for an average three-bedroom house. This heating and cooling sys- .em belongs to David Hervey, 3709 rlenry. Dr. Hervey and his three children lived all< winter in a louse that was heated only with energy from the sun. The success- 'ul trial of the system- was the 'inal step in 10 years of effort toward production, which ^s expected to begin in three or four years. When production does 'begin, Plervey has been told he will have the "most important invention since the electric motor." ALTHOUGH SOLAR heating louses have been on the market 'or a number of years, Hervey's system work's on a completely dif- 'erent principle. His is the first ,o store heat in the summer for use in the winter and visa versa. This eliminates the' need for an expensive revolving roof to follow ;he sun. The principle of the system, of- ieially known as the solar-teres- ,rial hydronic heating and cooling system, is amazingly simple. It consists fundamentally of collect- ,ng the heat of the sun and storing it in the ground for future use. The heat is absorbed by water n a coil of pipes in the roof. The water then is circulated by a pump to the ground where .the ground absorbs the heat from the POTTED TOMATOES I in Peat Pots Plant Pot and All [.Pabbago, caullflowor, mangoes, pimentoos, pansios, nil varieties of petunias and bedding'plants, PLEASANT HILL GREENHOUSE 1016 Ploasant Hill water. The only operating cost is electricity to activate the pump. It requires the same amount of current as one Christmas tree bulb. ' IT IS NOT surprising that a new concept of solar heating -should come from Hervey. As an industrial engineer he has spent most of his life developing industries in foreign countries. He owns about 15 inventions, most of whiqh are concerned with cost-lowering operations. The heating and cooling system is an outgrowth of Hervey's work in building less expensive housing. He buiH a $14,500 house "for about $3,000 in 1952 in Washington, D. C. Hervey said, "I was driving back to my plant in North Carolina from Washington when I began to think about what, the man who bought the house had said. He told me that I had'perfected the construction of low-cost nous- ing. Now what was needed was an inexpensive way to-heat; and cool them. By the time I reached home I knew how to do it." Research and drafting the plans took several yearrs, When the specifications were complete', Hervey took them to a patent lawyer who went to Washington, D. C. The lawyer spent four and one-hall days searching the patent files. "WHEN I MET him at the enc of that time, he merely looked ai me and said, 'You have a patent- able invention in a completely open field,'" Servey said. After much soul searching Hervey decided to build his prototype DR.O.L.BRAUN Reg.

He received 40 offers from all over the U.S. to 'inancB: the project, .but rejected them in favor of a local group. "I believe this invention must secomo a reality," Hervey said. 'I 'can't allow vested interests,, such as the oil industry or heating companies, to buy up and suppress something that will save noney for, so many people. I knew 'that I could trust my Ericnds here." Although thd friends had more [aith than money, the house and the heating system were finally completed after two years. The: system worked in> spite of many handicaps..It heated a stock pre fabricated three-bedroom house all winter for about $5. '"VERY SIMPLY here is how the! system works. The solar-terrestrial hydronic heating system collects the sun's heat in pipes under a glass roof. An electric pump circulates the water to coils of pipes within the earth. By convection the heat is passed from the, water to- the ground. The cooled fluid Pattern Two-Skirt Style Choose the skirt YOU like best —slim or gently flared.
