Phone fj SATISFACTION GUARANTEED! 6961 'Old Soi May Be Needed Some Day As Power Source CHICAGO,'Jan. 22 —(IP)— Man one day may have to depend on the sun as his only source of power, according to a government engineering consultant. Palmer Putnam, who does consultant work for the Atomic Energy Commission, said ordinary fuels may be uneconomical!;,' n> coverable in 75 years and atomic fuels will run out in 175 more- That would leave man with only the sun for power. Putnam, writing in Science Digest, said this nation must develop. ways of using solar energy within Uie next 100 to 250 years, if it is to maintain its spresent standard of living. Research on putting the sun to work has been going on for some time. In India, Putnam noted, a solar cooker to provide cooking : facilities for, average-sized families already has been out on the market. .In this country, he wrote, a small engine running on.sunlight and capable of supplying enough heat and light — and power for pumping and irrigation— to take care of a small farm is commercially feasible at a mass production cost of about Sl.OOO. -Solar furnaces for homes are also a reality, Putnam added, but are prohibitively expensive. Prisoners-- (Continued from Tage One) incident. :None. of the expatriates made, any demonstration although the Koreans shouted farewells to the crack troops as they later disappeared behind a hill. "We waited outside -and at exactly midnight opened the outer gates, and left," an Indian major told newsmen at 12:15 a. m. (9:15 a. m. cst) at Panmunjom about a .rnile from, the pro-Red camp. • "I saw no Americans. Some of the men were outside, their, huts but they were hardly visible because it was too dark," the major said. In the meantime, 14,000 anti- Communist Chinese were, aboard landing ships bound for" Formosa and, 7,000 former North Koreans were in two ROK resettlement centers .in South Korea. UN. commander Gen. John E. Hull's announcement t h a t the POW S in Allied hands had attained civilian status closed the books on th e United Nations' three year battle for a new and unprecedented principle of warfare—the right of voluntary repatriation by POWs. Their return to civilian status had been .promised before they were .turned out of their neutral zone prison camp by Indian guards three days ago.. Angry at-their release, the Communist headquarters at Kaesong had demanded in a note to Lt. Gen. K. S. Thimayya, commander of the Indian guards, that the Allied POWs be held captive in. the neutral zone until the peace conference could be organized. .. ... ... .. .,But Thimayya ssaid the Indian command will open the wooden and barbed - wire, gates of the "north" camp Friday night and abandon the soldiers without a country. . South Korean President Syng- man Rhee ordered ROK national and military police k> "prevent" any of the 21 Americans, 325 South Korean and one British prisoners from entering his country from the neutral zone when they become civilians. Rhee did not reveal what .steps have been taken to prevent the men from seeking sanctuary in South Korea if Communist guards at the northern end of the neutral zone deny them entry.-into North Korea. , . U. S. Secretary of .the Army Robert Stevens said Wednesday as he .watched the. anti-Communist prisoners return to Allied custody that any -of- the Americans wanting to come back would be "welcomed."

Iri a conference last year of Chest, school and city officials, Stark, who heads both the Chest and the school board, attended as a Chest representative and asked the School Board for more money! "This is the greatest thrill of my life," Stark told the crowd after receiving the award. "The credit should really go 'to"the splendid people with whom I have been associated. So many of them have done so much more than I." Knox Beavers served as toastmaster at the banquet, welcomed the guests and introduced former winners of the annual awards. The principal speaker, Arthur F. Lorton Jr., was introduced by Bob Stockton, who was in charge of arrangements for the banquet. Stockton, now an assistant vice president of the National Bank of Commerce in Houston, is best known for his work with the Federal Bureau of Investigation during the past 11 years. His subject was "Building America," and his main emphasis was on the contribution an individual can make in his own home, church and community. , ^ "We are not much inclined to think that we are saving our country merely by rearing our children in the proper way, but it has more effect than we know on our whole community and our nation," he declared. "This great nation of ours was founded on home and church and community," he added. The nation can be no stronger than its foundation." Comparing the "something for nothing" attitude with the appeal of the confidence man. Lorton drew on his own experiences to illustrate his talk with a number of amusing anecdotes about confidence men and the way they operate. "The confidence man's scheme usually appeals only to those who already have a little larceny in their hearts," he said. The Rev. P. Walter Hcnckell gave the invocation at the banquet. Henckeil, Roy Elms and Hugh Stewart served with Gillette on the committee which picked the "young man of the year." The turkey belongs to the pheasant family.
