IWe Logansport, Indiana. Pharos-Tribune Sun to Provide Energy For New Water Pumps IN TORNADO'S WAKE By DOC QUIGG United Press -Staff Correspondent EN'GLEWOOD, N. J. <UP) — Calvin D. MacCracken, a 37-year- old, crew-cut corporation president, is out to kill off one of mankind's ancient servants—the wind mill—which he says already, has one foot in the grave. The wind, MacCracken maintains, is all right for breathing but has served out its usefulness span for pumping water. He aims to harness the sun for that. His firm, Jet Heet Inc., a creative development engineering outfit which has developed some 150 items in the last 10 years, has pioneered in the fields of heat transfer and solar energy. Their latest creation is a sun heat-operated pump that bypasses mechanical moving parts, except for two check valves. Heat Replaces Wind "It does just what the windmill was intended tp do except it works hy the sun's heat instead of the wind," MacCracken said. "T h e wind 'is not constant enough. In places where you need water, the arid lands and desert climates, you've got plenty of sun — that's obvious. "We're building a thermopump —to be field tested this summer in the Southwest — that should deliver around 2,400 gallons of wa- tertained their nephews at a personal shower, honoring a nephew, Bill Myers, who is leaving at an early date for California, where he wil be married on June 19,' to Miss Patricia McCardy. The serving table was macie beautiful with the decorations carried out in a color scheme of yellow and green. The lace cover was underlaid with a green cloth, and the centerpiece was an arrangement .of daisies, offset with yellow tapers in crystal holders. Edwin Newcomb presided at the table. Guests attending besides the honored guest were Carl Newcomb, Roger Smith, Francis • Blacketor, James G. Newcomb, Carl Eugene and Edwin Newcomb, Kline Black-, etor, Jr"., Larry Evans and Paul Myers. Those sending gifts, but unable to attend were Byron Ginn and Raymond Blacketor. Mr. and Mrs. Carl Kreamer <ff Kewanna were business visitors in Rochester Saturday.

Roughly, the device will pump somewhat like a coffee percolator, in which expanding steam bubbles push a column of water up a pipe. It will have three or four sunheat- catching panels — black-painted, tubed aluminum which will heat to about 180 degrees in the sun. Gulps Of Water Water will circulate'through the tubes, in a closed gravity system, to the pump where it will boil freon, a Dupont liquid that boils at about 150 degrees.

Memorial services were conducted Sunday when a color guard, made up of members of the American Legion Post and Veterans of Foreign Wars will honor the community's war dead. Nine cemeteries wiil be visited, and veterans graves will be decorated by the color guard, withj short service at each cemetery.

Election of officers was the main feature of the meeting, with the following persons being elected for office: Mrs. Kenneth Baldwin, president; Mrs. Joseph Zeiger, vice 'president; Mrs. Harold Snyder, treasurer; Mrs. Cale Walker Jr., secretary. It was decided to hold a picnic, Sunday, June D, which will be a aiternatingly flattering and swell ing as the vapor expands and condenses under the influence of the sun heat and the recurring gulps of cool well water. McCracken plans to progress from the pump into household air conditioning by solar energy. His firm is working on a sun-run air conditioner. He-already is selling solar heal collectors to heat swimming pools. "H sound amazing," he said, "but the fact is that one of the first uses of solar energy on a big scale will ba heating of swimming pools." A famed member of MacCracken's staff here is Dr. Maris Tolk&s, the solar energy expert who developed the MOT sun • heated house.

LAFAYETTE (UP) — Heavy rains and floods have interfered ieriously with corn and soybean planting in Indiana. But' experts said today there's still plenty of me. In contrast to the old days be- tore short-season hybrid corn furnished the farmer a crutch to save his crop after rainy springs, Hoosier farmers now may wait until mid or • late June for planting. K.E. Beeson, Purdue University extension agronomist, said farmers will find seed supplies, of short- season varieties of reasonably satisfactory yielding ability available to meet this year's emergency. By mid-June the time will have passed when farmers can take a chance on full-season hybrids they ordinarily plant, Beeson said. But except for the northern one-fourth of Indiana, short-season hybrids may be planted on good soils until the last of June with reasonable expectation of maturity and fair yields. Certified Indiana 400 series were suggested for general use in mid- June with the still-earlier 200 series or even slightly earlier of the month. Beeson said a survey of seed growers indicated a "rather generous" supply of Indiana 252 and earlier "hybrids. He urged the use of hybrids which have been tested under Indiana conditions as abnormally eariy hybrids ui some cases produce very short stalks and are so close to ground that harvesting is difficult. Soybeans may be planted safely even later than corn, Beeson said. Delayed planting reduces the number of days to maturity for the soybean. The very early Mandarin can be planted in the northern part of the state until early July, and Hawkeye and Harosoy were suggested for elsewhere. On riverbottom lands of the south, where- White River and Wabash River floods are now occurring, Clark and Wabash varieties can be planted until July 4. There are very few crops as safe as soybeans under emergency conditions, Beeson said.
