Eventually to accept reuse of water \VICHITA, Kan. (UPI) Knowledge that water being consumed has already been used by others is something Americans eventually will have to accept That was an opinion ventured here Tuesday by Clarence W. Klassen of the Dlinois Sanitary Water Board. He addressed the National Natural Resources conference sponsored by the American Farm Bureau Fed eration. Klassen said the nation's greatest source of water for the future is not in salt - water oceans, but re-used water resources now available. He said proper use of water will become an issue that can make or break state and federal administrations. In an earlier speech before 145 participants at the meeting, Rep. Wayne Aspinall, D-Colo., chairman of the House Committee on Interior and Insular Affairs, urged the sale of unused federal lands for private development He said such sales would allow not only for needed recreational facilities, but would bring increased tax revenue as the land goes on (ax rolls. Laser may be handy new dental tool LOS ANGELES - WiU a tiny, intense beam of light some day be able to glaze tooth enamel thereby causing it to become resistant to cavity formation? This possibility is indicated by preliminary research with the laser. Drs. Ralph H. Stem and Reidar F. Sognnacs of the UC LA School of Dentistry described their dentai experiments with the powerful U'^r beam today betore the International Associa' tion for Dental Research here Not only did the research suggest the possibility of the laser- glazing approach to prevention of dental cavities but repair of existing cavities with the beam. The laser might be used to drill out the cavity and to fuse pow dered dental enamel or porce lain into the cavity. Thus a tooth colored dental restoration, fused without separation to the walls of the cavity, would be accomplished. The investigators emphasized their study was a preliminary one, concerned only with effect of the laser on dental tissue and standard dental repair material Heat produced by the intense beam is apparently no problem Temperature changes in underlying dental tissue, when surface enamel is exposed to the ' laser, appeared to be signiH- eantly less than those caused by the standard dental drill. One problem is that tooth enamel, being a highly reflective substance, more readily "deflects" the laser beam, reducing its ability to be lased. Development of a low reflecting cementing vehicle which could be placed in the area to be fused might solve this problem. Patrol escapes savage Indians in jungle LIMA, Peru (UP!) — A government patrol trapped by sav age Indians for 10 days in the "green heU" of the Amazon jungle fought its way to safety today under an air cover of fighters and bombers. The newspaper El Comercio said the e.vpedition reached the Yavari River after a three-day forced march through the jungle during which it was attacked repeatedly by the savages. Air Force fighters and bombers strafed a path through the jungle country of the Peruvian-Brazilian frontier after U.S. Air Force helicopters from Panama air-lifted 10 sick and u-ounded members of the parol to safety. _ At a Yavari River clearing the patrol boarded a gunboat for a river trip to Iquitos, 125 miles distant expected to take about a week. The patrol required three days to cover the 10 miles to the river from the jungle site where it was be- siged. The 65-man patrol, including troops and civiUans, left Requena, a tiny Amazon village, more than a month ago to map a road through the jungle. It was encircled by the Indians and forced to dig in after the poisoned arrow-firing savages cut off escape. Electricity for birthday IPSWICH, England (UPI) Walter Home woke up Tuesday —his 100th birthday — and switched on the electric light "That was my finest birthday gift in 100 years," he said. "Hearing that my home was lit by gas, some friends had electricity laid on in time for a switch-on today." Historical reasons dictate "New" for Easter parade By GAY PAULEY UPI Women's Editor NEW YORK (UPI) — The custom of the new outfit for Easter is older than Christianity itselL "Long before Christianity came to the world, people put on fresh, new garments at the Spring Festival, for joy that winter was past," says CbristiBa Hole, a British authority on folklore. "And since, even m this artificial age, few are so dull of heart as to be quite unaffected by that recurrent happiness, it is probable that they viil go on doing so for a long time to come," she continues. Miss Hole discusses dress and other customs of Cairistiamty's holiest day in the book, "Easter and Its Customs" (M. Barrows and Co., New York). The folklore authority says it is customary everywhere to don new clothes for the day, a whole outfit if possible. "But if not then at least a new 'hat or a new pair ofj gloves," she added. "Not so long ago, young men often sent gloves to girls of their choice on Easter Eve. "If these were accepted and worn next day at the mommg service, it was a sign that the courtship was going well and was likely to end in marriage. ". . . poverty cannot be offered as an excuse for it nothing more can be afforded, a new tie or scarf, some ribbon, or even a pahr- of shoelaces is enough." It long has been the custom too to clean house in readiness for Easter, says Miss Hole. She cited an early 16th century book teUing how on the "Godde's Sondaye" it was customary to "do the fyre out of the hall, and the black wmter branches, and all thynges that is foule with fume and smoke. . ." Miss Hole does not discuss the origm of the Easter parade but other authorities say that by the time in the United States. Easter eggs also predate ChrisHanily. They long have been symbols of and resurrection, she says. The ancient Persians, CTreeks and Chinese exchanged them at at spring festivals. Early Christians considered them holy and appropriate gifts for Eastertide. In pre-Reformation days they were blessed and used in the Easter ceremonies at church. Egg rolling is a European custom in Europe as well as in the United States. Miss Hole writes that the custom of the egg roll on the White House mid-1880's it was a popular pas-|!awn is said to have been start­ ed by the wife of President James Hadison. The author s*ys some foOcIore confuses the rabbit and the hare's role in Easter. In Europe, the liare lays Easter eggs in the garden or about the house. In the United SUtes, the rabbit (one member of the hare family) performs the same role. But the hare is the tme Eas-; ter animal, she says, for he once was sacred to the European spring goddess, Eos- tre. In England once, ritual harej hunts took place and the animal still appears on Easter cards m northern Europe and in the little baskets in which German, and Hungarian children collect Easter gifts. In YttgosUvia, the hare makes a nest in the stable and there the younc folk fo oo Easter momhig to find the eggs concealed in the hay. In England, it is in the garden that they, search. 'But the principle everywhere is the same," she writes, as the hare "reappears. . the living emblem of fertility, renewal and the return of spring."
