1 THE REGISTER-NEWS — MT. VERNON, ILLINOIS MILESTONE ON THE MIAMI—It may not be a particularly handsome building, but this structure overlooking the Miami River is the proud new landmark of small (19,500) but progressive Piqua, Onto. Just as it led larger cities by manufacturing electricity as early as 1884, Piqua will soon become the first city in the United States to operate its own nuclear power station. The atomic reactor enclosed in bulging, 70-foot-high white dome above wfll produce steam. This will be piped across the river to the municipal power plant where it will turn generators to produce 11,400 kilowatts of electricity, about half the city's normal needs. The reactor was built by Atomics International, a division of North American Aviation, for the Atomic Energy Commission.

Newspaper Enterprise Assn. Now is the season when the sun worshipers in our midst get a chance to practice what they preach; namely, that lots of sunshine is good for you. ] But let's examine the facts. Thc| sun has four definite effects on your skin. When the sun's ultraviolet or actinic rays strike your skin, they stimulate D. This is a good effect, especially in babies and growing children. These rays also cause the pigment in the deep layers of the skin to move toward the surface. This produces tanning which may be considered desirable or undesirable according to the prevailing whims of fashion. A third effect of these rays is to cause thickening of the skin WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 7, 1963 and It is this thickening rather than the tanning that protects your skin from burning. Furthermore, it is the thickening rather than years of life that ages your skin, gives it a weatherbeaten look, produces wrinkles and may even induce skin cancer, which is almost never seen on the unexposed area of the skin. It has been said that there can be no gain without a relative loss and here we have a perfect example. No one should completely avoid exposure to sunlight. But, on the other hand, It Is wise to use moderation and not go all out to try to get the deepest tan on the beach. A fourth effect of the sun's rays is due to the infrared component. This causes the well-known sun- bum, and it is foolhardy not to take steps to avoid it. Many of the sunburn preventive creams and lotions now contain DHA (dihydroxyacetone) which is supposed to give you a tan the easy way. The tail It gives you, however, is strictly synthetic. It results from an interaction between the DHA and the acids of the outer skin layers. This type of tan, since it does not thicken the skin, does not protect your skin from burning. The sunscreen chemicals in the protective lotions will not give you complete protection either, but they will absorb some of the harmful rays and thus give you partial protection. So before you buy a cream or lotion don't just listen to the commercial—read the label as well. The best sunscreens contain para- aminobenzoic acid, one of its derivatives or digalloyl trioleate. These lotions should be applied every two hours if you are sitting or lying in the sun. If you go in swimming it must be reapplied when you come out of the water. The best that can be said for the tan you get out of a bottle is that it is harmless. But, on the debit side, it has been ob­ served that on some skins the effect is a yellow or orange discoloration rather than a tan and it may appear streaked or mottled. As far as the physologic need for sunlight is concerned, the average adult can get enough of the beneficial effect by walking bareheaded in the sun for half a mile once a day. This is In no way meant to imply that that should be the upper limit of your exposure but if you want to stretch out on the beach for an hour or two, I think I'll just sit here in the shade and read a good bookt CHOOSY THIEF FORT PIERCE, Fla. (AP)— A used car was stolen during the night from an automobile dealer's lot. The following night, the auto was returned and a newer model was taken. France Can Get U.S. Nuclear Aid PARTS (AP)—President Kennedy has opened tihe way for France to get American nuclear help, but unless it is given without conditions, It will not be accepted, Informed sources said today. They said that Kennedy's July 25 letter to President. Charles do Gaulle contained, at least a hint that French adherence to the partial nuclear test ban would make American nuclear assistance possible. French officials said De Gaulle had replied to Kennedy's letter but they would not comment on its contents.
