3jg Golesburg Reoisfrer-Moil, Golesburg, Friday, Moy 11, 1973 Scientist: Extracting Energy From Hot Rock Could Solve Energy Crisis By MICHAEL O. WESTER tf the fgderal gmtmm is tfffltag to pAy for it, a new method <rf extracting energy from hot rocks four miles Energy World underground could help solve tfie energy crisis by the year 2060, according to a New Mexico scientist. t). W. Brown, with the Los Alamos Scientific Laboratory (LASL) ol the University of California in north-central New Mexico, said that In order for the potential to be reached, $60 million per year in federal funding is needed to develop both natural and hot rock geothermal energy sources. "If we can develop a system to remove heat from hot rock without having to depend upon Mother Nature, we could increase the total energy output over natural hot weather sys terns by a factor of 10," Brown said. "If pursued, the National Petroleum Council's projected output of 19,000 megawatts by 1905 based on naturally-occur ring hot water systems alone could easily be raised io 132,000 megawatts," he said. "And in 15 years between 1985 and 2000 that production could be more than doubled. "I'm saying geothermal can work," Brown said, "ftttt, it'; going to take money-money other than private investments now being put in geothermal energy." The LASL process, a relative* ly new method, involves energy extraction from hot rock, From preliminary studies, rock teffl* peratures in excess of 320 degrees (F) at depths less than 20,000 feet appear to be suitable for best development. Brown said experiments at the Los Alamos laboratory so far have yielded considerable background geological and geophysical data. "The proposed procedure is to provide a two-hole, fracture- connected closed-convective- loop manmade geothermal system," he said. "Through it pressurized liquid water is circulated down the cold hole, through the fracture system and up the hot hole, being heated by the hot rock exposed by the fracture system" The pressurized liquid water, efficiently carries optimum heat energy to the surface, Brown said. The.process is experimental but promising. An additional feature Is that subsequent thermal stress cracking may occur, propagating additional fractures that could enhance the life of the heat reservoir. |"In the NPC report to the secretary of the interior on the U.S. energy outlook, it is noted that naturally occurring geothermal steam and< hot-water reservoirs in California and Nevada, while potentially con­ tributing up to only two per cent of the total US. electrical generating capacity by the year 1985, could supply about one- third Of the projected electrical power requirements for those two states," Brown said. "It's easy to see that I'm sold on the process. The problem now facing us Jn selling the rest of the nation, so that we can get the federal backing we need." f 1 '<#. Damlb /bmlly * M_S9___i__.'<Nt»MH< Is Celiac Disease Lifelong Problem? Dr. Lamb By LAWRENCE LAMB, M.D. Dear Dr. Lamb — I read your article about celiac disease Well, my little boy has it and he is on a gluten-free diet. He has had it for 11 months. He is 24 months old now. Is there a sure cure for it or Will he have to be on this type of diet for the rest ol his fife? Will my little boy suffer bleeding around his brain with this type of disease? You mentioned in an article that the patient should not have milk or milk products or sugar. Now my doctor told me he could have them. If he is not supposed to have them, just what is left that he can have? At his age he needs milk to grow doesn't he? Should I ask my doctor for vitamins for him or just give him the ones on the market today? Trying to find the right food is a problem. Some of the products sold do not tell what the ingredients are. Trying to feed another child without this disease is a problem. The foods she wants, the little one wants also. What is a mother to do? Dear Reader — There are various degrees of severity of celiac disease and differences in children and adults. In uncomplicated cases the main problem is the allergic-type reaction of the digestive tract to the gluten protein found in all cereals except corn and rice. By eliminating all cereal products except corn and rice from the diet, and any foods that are made with cereal products containing gluten, the problem can be controlled. Food labeling is a problem. Hopefully that will improve with the changes being announced in food labeling. Flour, which contains gluten, is found in a variety of foods, including commercial ice cream, cold cuts, hot dogs and places you least expect to find cereal. Gluten is present in cream soups, gravy and anything which uses a white sauce or flour for a thickening agent. In some inadequately treated cases the damage to the lining of the small intestine destroys the normal enzymes needed to split the milk sugar (lactose) and make it impossible to utilize milk. The same thing can happen to the enzymes formed by the intestine to split double sugars such as ordinary table sugar. These are complications of the primary problem and are not always present. With severe diarrhea and real problems it is wise to eliminate all of these foods until the problem subsides, then see what can be tolerated. In individuals who respond well to just eliminating gluten from the diet, there is no reason to eliminate milk or sugar. So your doctor is undoubtedly right in the case of your child. He probably doesn't have these complications. He is less hkely to develop them because his problem has been diagnosed and he is under proper treatment. 5 Car Smash-up in "600" Race! Enthusiasm it the greatest ingredient for success. Therefore, you'll have to pardon Rod Godttl, Phil Lowney, Jerry Silberer, Robin Oodill and Kenny Harmison for their spectacular smash-up in the big Weaver-Yemm Chevrolet Sales Classicl Each Wat determined to snatch the lead, yet none of the other four would relinquish a tingle talet advantage. That's what this one big tale of the year means in savings for you at Weaver-Yemm Chevrolet. Over -all Failure Along with the destruction of the lining of the intestinal tract, there may be an over-all failure of absorption, particularly cf fats, from the intestinal tract. This can Cause failure in the absorption of the fat soluble vitamins — A, D, and K. These complications need not occur if the diet is properly managed to begin with, specifically eliminating all sources of gluten. Failure to absorb vitamin K from the intestinal tract leads to a defect in the blood clotting mechanism which can lead to hemorrhages. Let me stress again that this is a complication and is not likely to occur in a patient under proper dietary management. (Newspaper Enterprise Assn.)

Slate Ceremony For EMT Class At Area School * Commencement ceremonies for the first local Emergency Medical Technician-Ambulance Program class will be held Saturday at 2 p.m. in the Doctors' Conference Room at St. Mary's Hospital. The training program was sponsored by Carl Sandburg College in cooperation with the Areawide Trauma Center at St. Mary's. The graduating students completed 81 hours of intensive instruction during 11 .weeks in I such areas as treatment of fractures, shock and cardiac arrest. On Saturday, Sandburg President Eltis Henson will address graduates of this first class. A second class is expected to begin within the next two weeks. Commencement ceremonies are open to the public. Firemen Test Flunks Again Legal Question SAN FRANCISCO (UPI) The written test for San Francisco firemen has flunked again. For the third year in a row, federal judges ruled the exam was not reasonably related to the job and violated the U.S. Civil Rights Act by discriminating against minorities. U#. District Court Judge Wmm T. Sweigert ordered the department to fill 122 openings by using only results o/ oral and physical tests. Q. I would like to make a gift of some money to my children while I am living. How much can I give before I have to start paying the federal gift tax? A. Any gift in excess of $3,000 (the annual gift tax exclusion) must be reported to the federal government on a gift tax return (Form 709). However, a husband and wife can give a joint gift of up to $6,000 (each claiming a $3,000 exclusion) without gift tax. Also, the amount of a gift in excess of the $3,000 annual exclusion may be offset by the donor's lifetime gift tax exclusion of $30,000. Otherwise, the non-exempt amount of the gift is taxed on a graduated scale, so that the more you give the more the tax will be, starting at a rate of 2V4 per cent on the first $5,000 not exempt. —Illinois State Bar Assn. Wettest Roundup In the West HEBER, Utah (UPI) Fishermen and cowboys combined for the wettest roundup in the West. The wranglers tossed ropes from the banks of Deer Creek Reservoir to fishermen in boats who helped tie them to 50 cattle that stampeded down a steep 100-foot embankment into the lake. The 200 cattle, which went over the embankment after traffic noise panicked them, were all herded to safety. WINNERS! and a WINNER WONDERLAND of Used Car Buys! 600 Winning-est deals!
