Two Logansport, Indiana, Pharos-Tribune Atomic Waste Materials Poses Scientific Problem CHICAGO (UP) — A consultant lo.the Atomic Energy Commission says science faces a growing problem in the disposal of "hot garbage." Dr. Abel Wolman, professor of sahitary engineering at Johns Hopkins University, said some atomic waste materials retain their doad- ly-radioactivity for 25,000 years or more. Wolman, here to address an alumni group, said industry has used lagoons, rivers, lakes and the atmosphere to dispose o£ less harmful wastes. Instruments.

His house is as andsome as ever, but the fields round it are a dirty, midwinter rown with only occasional patch- s of dull, green grass poking per- istently up through the mud.

(UP)—One; of the price level was given prec Nevada, and that English cows veraty lacuuy ana MIS mary have munched the arass and cwen Jane Carr of R°<*ford, 111. were have munched the grass and radioactive milk. "It may be a long way from Nevada to England, or from a power station in Oslo or Moscow to. Chicago," he said, "but all share the same ocean of air and the winds that sweep the globe." Short-lived atomic wastes have been sealed in concrete and steel drums and have been dumped into deep spots of th sea, Wolman said, but even there scientists are dubious. Sea Life Also Touched •"Radioactivity can be picked up in. ocean spray and held in the atmosphere," he said. "It can affect sea life and human foods. And nobody really knows the extent of deep water flow or the rate at which deep water is mixed with surface water." ' Wolman said some consideration has been given to disposing of "hot" wastes in abandoned oil wells of depths ranging from 5,000 to 20,000 feet. "But nobody is'yet certain that these radioactive elements will not affect other natural resources perhaps 10, 50 or 500 miles away, to say nothing of poisoning a continent's underground, water supplies." he said. .Wolman said the AEC is spending millions, of dollars annually on research aimed at reducing the amount and strength of atomic wastes. But he said there will be no permanent solution until scientists work out some constructive use fof "hot" wastes, just as garbage • used for fill and sewage for fertilizer. dinner guests of his mother, Mrs. B.

At the same time, the Company's plant investment will have increased from $112,741,945 in 1946 to more than $449,000,000 by the end of 1958; Capital funds for this purpose must be obtained in the open market. The most recent PSCI mortgage bonds sold have an interest rate of 4%% annually; In view of these facts, it's no wonder that Indiana citizens consider it out* rageous for rural electric co-ops in Indiana to seek to borrow $42,000,000 < of government (taxpayers') money at 2% interest—to build electric gener* ating and transmission facilities that would only duplicate those already in existence.
