No Signals From Life in Space GREEN BANK, W.Va. (NEA) — After nearly two decades of round-the-clock listening, the director of the National Radio Astronomy Observatory here reports no communications from inhabitants of outer $pace. Plenty of natural signals from the sun, other planets, even galaxies - but nothing yet from the Martians, nary a word from any living creatures out there. The news may seem like an a mission of failure, since many causal observers of the Green Bank facility believe its primary purpose has been to receive beep-beeps from other life, if indeed other life is sending beep-beeps. Local residents call the observatory's huge 300-foot disc antena "The Big Ear" and muse over the possibility of communicating with someone who has a Plutonian accent. But apparently the Big Ear has not failed. Facility director Dr. David Hogg says the observatory's purpose has never been married to the detection of outer-space life. He says that when the observatory was commissioned in 1957, contemporary thinking then was that other civilizations did not exist, therefore there wasn't much speculation about such communications. "Actually, our purpose has been to receive signals From such things as gas clouds and thereby do our part to advance astronomical knowledge," he said. Dr. Hogg admits that listening to gas clouds is not nearly as exciting as listening for the Uranian morse code. But the work crews have their moments: "We've received some interesting signals from such things as pulsars." Fears Anti-Growth Faction Taking Over 'Iowa: 2000' Who Are These Men? BY HARRISON WEBER DES MOINES— The director of the Iowa Development Commission, Del Van Horn, is fearful of "Iowa 2000" degenerating into a launching pad for anti-growth forces in the state. "Our community sources tell us that local meetings, in which all lowans were urged to participate by the program organizers, were heavily unbalanced in favor of the anti-development supporters and very lightly attended by those individuals whose opinions would have provided a fair hearing of all sides of the question," Van Horn said. Van Horn emphasized that the development commission does not promote industrial growth for the sake of growth only. "We strive for 'quality' industrial growth which generates tax revenues, additional payroll and stabilized employment with new jobs for lowans to keep pace with losses incurred through plant closures or curtailments," he related. Times Herald, Carroll, Ja. C Thursday, April 4, 1974 ^ The "Iowa 2000" project is being guided by the Office of Planning and Programming according to an outline developed by a planning committee appointed by Governor Robert Ray and chaired by University of Iowa President William Boyd. There are four specific areas being reviewed in the "Iowa 2000" project. They are: ecomonic development, energy, natural resources and life enhancement. "It was the purpose of the project leaders to accomplish a fair and comprehensive survey of Iowa citizens to determine their feelings regarding the state's alternatives for the future," Van Horn observed. "AH interested citizens were invited to participate, but," according to Van Horn, "Balance between opposing viewpoints at the local meetings has been reported to be so lacking, we are alarmed that the input to up-coming regional meetings could be so one-sided as to completely distort the true opinions of the majority of lowans." 1 ' We , at the Iowa Development Commission, and everyone else who supports the 'Iowa 2000' project, are urging all citizens on both sides of the opinion fence who are concerned with the future of their state to get out and make themselves heard at, the up-coming regional meetings. This is the only way we can be assured that the final outcome of 'Iowa 2000' will reflect the hopes of all the people for Iowa," Who are the men in this pioneer aviation picture taken in Carroll probably more than 40 years ago? John Fitzpatrick, manager of Eagle Airways at Eagle Grove and a former resident of Carroll, would like to know. James W. Wilson, publisher of The Daily Times Herald, recalls that the man on the left is the late Irving Saul and the man on the right is the late Roland Humphrey. In a letter to the publisher. Fitzpatrick discloses that presently he is engaged in compiling information for a book on Iowa aviation history, scheduled to be published this fall. He says in his letter: "As you perhaps know, Carroll figured prominently in early day aviation, with the manufactor of the Saul Triad, the first small tri-motored plane ever built. Sid Cleveland, native of Goldfield. was test pilot, and sv e received the enclosed photo from his cousin. However. Sid is the only one on the picture that is identified and so we would appreciate very much if you would run this picture in your paper, and hope that some of your readers may be able to supply information concerning the company that built the Triad, as well as the names of the other men in the picture... Through-out the years. I have flown from your fine airport, and back in the 1960's. 1 was substitute pilot for the Caroline, your daily flying service from Carroll to Des Moines. I had the privilege of taking a number of Carroll residents on flying trips in Caroline's 190 Cessna. My uncle. Leo Fitzpatrick. has resided in Carroll for a good many years. Thanking you for your interest. Yours, sincerely: John Fitzpatrick." GISELA'S STUDIO 213 N.
