Alexis Trustees Consider Buying 10 Acres of Land ALEXIS - The Village of Alexis may use part of its $13,104 in federal revenue sharing funds received this year to purchase 10 acres of land south of School District 400's buikU ings here. Members of .the Village Board of Trustees, during a meeting July 2, considered purchasing the property. Part of the land is used each year during July for the Alexis Progress' Show. Sidewalk Work Sidewalk construction, may also be financed with the federal funds. Trustees agreed a walk should be installed from west of LeWard Butcher's home to the new Alexis United Presbyterian Church building. Trustees said the work might be done if the church would furnish forms and labor while the village paid the cost of materials, or that a contractor could be hired to do the entire project. Village officials said they plan to discuss the matter with church representatives. Trustees also considered purchasing water pumps with the federal money. In other business, approval of the annual levy" ordinance was delayed because two trustees Were absent. The measure must be passed when at least three-fourths of the board is present.

UPI Science Editor CAPE KENNEDY (UPI) - A crushed rock supplier in search of new quarry locations in Florida used space pictures to find limestone deposits that ground survey teams failed to see. Science Today The Martin Marietta Corp. said its Aggregates Division was running out of its local sources of supply of rock in west central Florida last year end new, undeveloped deposits had to be found without delay. "Field survey • teams had been active for months without success, and .c o m p e t i t i o n threatened to capture the market," Martini-Marietta said in a technical report on the potential of space photography to locate mineral resources. "It was obvious that traditional methods of locating limestone deposits would not solve the problem. They were too slow." The 3,000-square-mile area was difficult terrain for geolo­ gists to survey. It was lowland with dense vegetation and numerous lakes, sink holes and swamps. The company's Aggregates Division turned to its aerospace division in Denver for help. Scientists obtained photographs of the area taken from the Apollo 9 Earth-orbiting spacecraft and by a high flying aircraft. The pictures were available to the public from the government data center in Sioux Falls, S.D.. Geologists using simple stereoscopes studied 36 photographs fqr subtle clues to the presence of.limestone beds and quickly came ' up with nine promising areas. They noted such things as a ridge that appeared to be the result cif a rock layer that resisted erosion better than surrounding terrain, and they found that drainage patterns in the lowland were valuable tools for finding the rock sought Limestone Found For instance, the Withlacoo- ehee River abruptly changed direction from west-southwest­ erly to northerly. This suggested that a major subsurface rock structure was present to force the course change. Martin reported that limestone was found at or near the surface at each one of the nine chosen sites. I "In fact, several grades of limestone were found in addition to the hard stone that was the immediate need," the company reported. "A commercial use has been found for the softer grades, thus increasing the value of the discoveries. "The immediate problem of lack of limestone was solved in one tenth the time that would have been required using traditional techniques." Not only did the photo studies pinpoint the areas of potential limestone deposits, but Martin said they contributed to greater economy by spotlighting the areas in which searches would have been fruitless. After the limestone beds were verified, Martin Marietta determined who the owners of the property were and secured permission to drill in areas of prime interest. to Quality for FAMOUS MAKE FURNITURE 2 (r OH SAVE ON THESE FAMOUS BRANDS • Berne & Madden • Spring-Air Custom Furniture Quality Bedding Less • Jasper Cabinet Company • Burlington House • Rembrandt and Stiffel Decorator Lamps • La-Z-Boy Chairs • Hammory Tables • Weiman Fine Tables • White of ' Mebane • Famous Name Carpets • American of Chicago We Invite You to Ask About Our Home Interior Decorating Service No Charge of Course 2035 GRAND AVE. - GALESBURG Phone 342-6618 RADKEut 6qlesburg Register-Moi I, Gojjjsbjufg # .'.
