State Geologist Criticizes Energy Plan., Says it's Not Likely to Work By Iowa Daily Press Association DES MOINES - State Geologist Sam Tuthill is questioning the viability of President Nixon's "Project Independence." The thrust of Project Independence is to make the United States self-reliant as far as its energy needs; in fact, to become an exporter of energy by 1985. In a briefing session. Dr. Approval for Aniana Route AMES, Iowa (AP)—The route of Iowa 149 connecting Interstate 80 with the Amana Colonies has been approved by the Iowa State Highway Commission. The route has been opposed by affected landowners and has been debated by the commission for more than two months. The Iowa County Board of Supervisors have agreed to take over the old Iowa 149 route about five miles west of the new route. Under the proposed agreement, which has not yet been signed by countv officials but Tuthill told the Iowa Energy Policy Council that Project Independence "is not likely to work and if it does, it will be merely a short-term postponement of an aspect of our energy crisis, not a long-term solution." Project Independence calls for development of alternate energy sources, stimulation which was worked out in conjunction with them, the county would take over the old route along with two other sections of state highway. The commision agreed Tuesday to make some modifications at the intersection of old Iowa 149 with U.S. 6, to repair the other two sections of highway to be taken over by the county and to pay the county $200,000 for upgrading the old Iowa 149 route. Approval of the new route is contingent on the county's signing the agreement. Commissioner David Shaff of Camanche cast the lone dissenting vote on the agreement. of domestic oil and gas exploration, as well as reducing the annual growth rate of energy consumption in the United States by at least one per cent. He criticized the plan because: "—There are so many technical, financial, environmental and logistic 'ifs' woven into it, it is a web of hope spun to obscure the essential nature of the problem Times Herald, Carroll, la. Wednesday, July 10, 1974 Q we face. "—It seems a poor national policy to stimulate the rapid development and consumption of the very fuels our energy-use systems are not tuned to when we have no more than l/30th of the world petroleum and gas reserves. "—The result of Project In- dependence is to reduce public recognition of the need to adjust energy consumption and efficiency of use patterns." Tuthill told the council that Iowa is a rather average state when it comes to the total amount of energy it uses. He noted, however, that Iowa is 8.5 percent more dependent upon natural gas and 4.3 per cent less dependent upon petroleum products than the national average. Iowa produces only about two per cent of the energy it uses and the state's production of coal is declining. Iowa, according to Tuthill, can utilize mass cargo transit to a significantly greater extent, but he says Iowa will remain a population dependent upon personal vehicles for the foreseeable future. Almost 43 per cent of Iowa's 1970 population lived Question, on Social Question — I'm 67 and do not plan to retire and receive social security payments for awhile. I've been told that when I do retire and get monthly benefits that they will be increased by 1 percent per year for each year between 65 and 72 that I didn't get benefits. My question is whether my wife's benefits on my record will also be increased? Answer — No, your wife's benefits will not be increased. This special delayed Answers Security retirement credit applies only to the worker. It doesn't affect the benefits paid to any of your dependents who would get monthly social security checks on your earnings record. Question — My father is hospitalized with a heart condition and the family has decided, after discussing his situation with the family physician, to hire a private duty nurse to look after my father. We are wondering whether Medicare will help pay for her services? Answer — No, there is no provision within the Medicare program for paying for private duty nursing. It does help pay the costs of regular nursing services, including intensive care nursing. Question — I'm a widow, 67, and my social security checks ($100) and supplemental security income payments ($66) are my only income. Someone has asked me to work a few hours a week babysitting. If I take the job, I'll be paid about $10 a week. Will that be taken off my supplemental security income payments? Answer — No. People 65 and over can earn as much as $65 a month and get their supplemental security income payment. If they earn more than $65 their supplemental security income payment is reduced by $1 for every $2 earned over $65. Airport Bond Issue Defeated EAGLE GROVE, Iowa (AP) — Eagle Grove voters narrowly defeated a $175,000 bond issue Tuesday for general airport improvements. The bond issue received about 59 per cent approval with 660 yes votes and 433 no votes. Sixty per cent approval is needed for passage. in places having a population of less than 2,500. Eighty-nine per cent live in places having a population of less than 100,000. There are only tv/o urban centers of more than 100,000. -Therefore, Tuthill rationalized, interurban transit has a very limited number of viable markets. "There will be a great need for massive subsidy of any regular interurban system. Intracity mass transit has possibilities in most of the communities of 25,000 or more, but reasons offered lowans for giving up their private transportation system will have to be compelling," Tuthill told the council. In discussing the energy crisis in general, Tuthill observed that about 40 per cent of the energy used in American society is wasted. "Economically it is not wasteful because we obviate other more taxing expenses by using excessive quantities of fuel. But fuels are in finite supply and over-usage is wasteful of the product," Dr. Tuthill stated. "We must induce the evolution of a depletable resources conservation ethic and at the same time develop coercive tax incentives and disincentives to require conservation," he said.
