18—Uklah Daily Journal, Uklah, Calif. Wednesday, July 3, 1974 Oil shale comes into its own Following last winter's severe oil shortage, the Federal Energy Administration has now turned its attention to the oil shale industry. Authorities say that as many as 700 billion barrels' of petroleum may be extracted from shale deposits in the Rocky Mountains where the Pafaho Development Company is currently expanding its production facilities. PANORAMIC Parachute Creek in Colorado has been the site of oil shale mining since 1922 which experts believe to be one of the richest shale deposits in the country. Some industry spokesmen fear, however, that accelerated mining may cause severe environmental problems before scientists can prevent the possibility of surface water contamination and land scarification. VERTICAL kiln is used by Paraho at Anvil Points, Colo., to crush shale into particles and then superheats them to separate oilfrom the pulverized rock.

(UPI) Scientists at the Stanford Research Institute are/developing a computer that can read minds. The machine is still .unreliable and limited in vocabulary, said the leader of the project Thursday, But he added that the implications "are limited only by imagination." Lawrence Pinneo, director of the Neuro-Physiology Program at the Institute, said the computer relies on the discovery that brain wave tracings, show distinctive patterns that correlate with individual words whether spoken or thought. The machine is currently hooked up to a television screen containing a white dot. If the computer recognizes a word "up" in a subject's thoughts, it moves the dot Up. It moves accordingly for the words down, left, right, slow, fast and stop. It doesn't always get thoughts correct. "But sometimes, it will go through spurts where it is 100 per cent correct," Pinneo said. He said one set of words used with success is "tip, hit, had, put, cool." Pinneo concedes that thoughts come in many forms. Images,, non-specific emotions and bursts of insight may be quite incomprehensible to , a computer. The scientist hopes that someday a way will be found to put a computer programmer in direct communication with computers, eliminating much of the tedious card-punching now needed. The project is funded by the Pentagon. Military applications include faster programming and possibly, in the future, remote controlled fighting machines. Pinneo said he has been asked many times if such devices might some day be used by government to control the thoughts of citizens. "Anything is possible," he said. "It is really up to us to be vigilant against misuse." A World War II sub chaser required about 200,000 board feet of wood for such things as bulkheads and foredecks. OAKLAND, Calif. (UPI) - A Navy wife who had her jaw wired closed so she could lose weight and become a "bikini bombshell" to keep her husband's eyes from wandering is mysteriously gaining weight. Doctors at the Oak Knoll Naval Hospital said Tuesday that Mrs. Maria Gray, 32, had her jaw wired on June 11 when she weighed 195 pounds. They -said she dropped to 176 pounds but in the last few days picked up two pounds. The doctors said they could not determine why there was a weight increase because Mrs. Gray was consuming only coffee, bouillon and instant breakfast. They said they were keeping her in the hospital to check on her progress. 462-8e32 M Teleprompler announces its July 4th SPIRIT OF 99 SPECIAL Wll install GbleTVin your home for just 99t.. instead of ourregular $ 9 90 charge!
