discovered that if he placed a razor blade in it - — aligned north and south — the blade sharpens He has placed sunflower plants in hu pyramids and they grow like weeds He bought some standard tomato plants from a store (' put them in a pyramid until after the frost season then lanted them They are the Ithiest tomato plants in his arden already bearing ilooms he says “THERE’S definitely some riwer in pyramids although cant really explain what it is" he said “I’ve even detected some healing power in it” he added Pettit explained that he cut his thumb nearly to the bone on a power saw Ignor- ing his wife’s advice to see a doctor he put his hand under a small cardboard pyramid ' for IS minutes a night for three nights It healed he said leaving 1 only a trace of a scar “Whenever I have a sinus

ranging from six inches to six feet and constructed of various materials He said 200 or 300 persons have visited him many of them asking to sit in the large pyramids “They say the air seems fresher and cooler and they feel cut off from the neighborhood" Pettit told the audience He said he has slept in one of his pyramids and he seems to get more rest with less sleep “There are many mysteries about the Great Pyramid (in Egypt) that are not explained” he said “But there seems to be some kind of force in a pyramid that produces these effects I and about 50000 others are trying to find out what is behind the force”- IN ONE experiment Pettit left a piece of steak in a pyramid for several weeks Although -the meat dehydrated and became hard it did not decompose Stiff Photo “I hope to put it in water one day and see if it will come back as a nice tender steak” he - said in - an interview before the lecture Later he told the audience that one experiment with the meat ended in disaster when the family dog ate it “He ate the first piece of mummified meat in a long time” he quipped t - In other experiments Pettit has placed onions and garlic in the large pyramids and closed the door “When I went in later there was absolutely no smell When we brought the garlic out it smelled up the room in a matter of minutes” Pettit also purifies water by setting containers in a pyramid He used it for his plants — and claims they do better with it — and for his wife’s iron apparently with no adverse effects PETTIT TOLD the audience that the power in tin pyramid seems to rest a third of the way up from the base and- directly below the apex Natural-Contour-Cups Regular $450 Charge Equipment Sales Some By GLENDA HOLDER and JIM VEON Staff Writers Despite the fuel shortage and reports of difficulty in obtaining fuel farmers apparently are going ahead with planned equipment purchases However farmers who switch from gasoline to diesel-burning equipment face a special problem At least two major distributors of diesel fuel are limiting their sales to regular customers A shortage of gasoline and other farm 'fuels couldn't have come at a worse time according to farmer Gary Harms of Whitewater Harms who recently had been refused a shipment of gasoline by his usual supplier said a critical shortage of fuels could keep farmers from completing their normal production and harvesting cycle Harms said his normal supplier of farm fuels was Frank Epp owner of the Deep Rock outlet at Elbing Kan Epp said Harms' order was not the only one he had refused “Ther earepeople around here crying for gasoline” he explained EPF DESCRIBED his position as being “between a rock and a hard spot” The suppliers he explained have limited his shipments to a quota based on his last year’s sales Sales at the outlet last year totaled about 800000 gallons ” - i$k Vm SIX EXOTING WEEKS (April 1621 April 23-28 April 30-May 5 May 7-12 May 14-19 and May 21-26) 1st PRIZE yamahaW Street Machine

gallons a month for this year Last year in June I sold 87000 gallons” Epp said Epp said June is always his biggest month for gasoline sales He agreed with Harms that June was the month in which farmers were in their fields the most But the fuel shortage apparently has not deterred area farmers from purchasing additional farm equipment particularly diesel-burning machinery local farm equipment dealers said Wednesday FRANK HOLT marketing manager of Foley Tractor Co said there has been no change in the demand for equipment “We’ve discussed the shortage with them but most of them are going ahead and buying the machinery telling us they can get the fuel at a price" When asked if sales personnel were informing buyers that there night be dificulty in obtaining fuel for new equipment Nor an Sauder of Sauder-Lygrisse said “Absolutely not We have heard of no indication one way or the other that there is a fuel shortage The only thing we know about it is what we read in your

will sell the agent 100 per cent of what he sold last year but we will not accept new customers “There is just not enough to go around — we are running out” he continued “We feel a moral obligation to take care of the customers we have had in the past and if we accept new customers that would mean we could not take care of our regular customers” The policy of Phillips Petroleum Co is much the same
