i Now It's 'Whal To Do WitkSurplm Sulfur? By PREStON MeGRAW COLLEGE STATION, Tex. ^ (UPI)-Malnly because of the $** Clean Air Act, American Industry is producing a mm* tain of sulfur every year that it does not need and scientists are trying to find practical uses for it. Two engineers at Texas A&M University are working on a $250,000 project to determine whether sulfur can be economically used in paving, especially in sandy areas where other materials to mix with asphalt are hard to find. Bob Gallaway of the Texas Transportation institute and. Dr. Don Saylak, an associate professor of civil engineering, estimate that up to eight million tons of urtneeded sulfur plies up every year. Wwkhrkfc, the'annual demand Is 40 million tons. A sulfur surplus was not always the case; Astrecently as 10 years ago, sulfur stocks boomed because of a shortage. of sulfur for rubber making, fertilizers, - pesticides, fungi. >cille's and chemicals. Now, under the Glean Air • Act, sulfur has to be removed. #mi industrial emissibni, pei ! troleum and natural gas, usually by tf chemical process called "scrubbing." The sulfur, surplus is-likely to grow with more stHngent antipollution ^measures.' ^ "Enough work already has been dotie, primarily - by Shell of Canada, to,make us believe that sulfur is both technically and economieally feasible as a paving material," Callaway said. "We use it as a:binder; If you Were to ask an make pavement of beach sand, he could not do it. "A combination of asphalt and beaeh sand makes an inferior product. Sulfur makes the mixture suffer and it produces a highly suitable material Judged on work to .date,; it looks quite durable. "We are working on various combinations of materials and we hope to get into the implementation phase of the plan in 1974." In making pavement with asphalt and sand-either desert type "blow" sand or beach sand is suitable-sulfur gm into the mixture as a hot liquid and forms a crystal matrix. Saylak said the U.S. Bureau of Mines is looking into the possible leaching of sulfur from a paving mixture. Coon Hunters Fret * By VIC WATIA ^ASHKUM, 111. (UPI) - When Jtlrry Moore started leading me in the direction of his four coon hunting dogs, each of them broke into chorus, stirring the blood with fond memories of iWany crisp nights on the trail. i Illinois Outdoors J*"If that ain't the most beautiful sound," I said, relaxing for {fie first time in hours. '^The day had been a night- iftare. My old Ford had finally given out while pulling my 17- foot bass boat to a tournament at Lake Carlyle, and I had found myself stranded at a Standard Oil station on the outskirts of Ashkum. The only thing I remembered about Ashkum was that the town had to be evacuated a couple of years ago when a train containing toxic materials derailed and threatened residents with dangerous fumes. But in just a couple of hours, I discovered what type of folks live in Ashkum—some of the most friendly I ever met. Jerry was one of them. We hit it off instantly because we're two of a kind—both'living and breathing for those hours we can spend hunting and fishing As he approached each of the coon dogs—three 1 blue ticks artd a black ,and tan killer dog— they belly-crawled tarid begged for his attention.. r . . f • 4 Jerry talked ,about his dogs 1 and his trapline, his words coming; in the same, easy pa<fe as life in the country. : , • "They got a. WIT in the legis laturc that'll 1 end all this,'' 'lie said, referring to a bill to end the taking of fur-bearing animals. "What'll I do with my traps then? My dogs? It don't make sense to me." : He explained that hunters a At the corner of Frank and Hawkinson Streets it Knox County's Finest Retirement Center Many people have retired at APPLEGATE EAST. BECAUSE 1.

' "Don*l know if we can do; any good though," He said. "Somebody, who doesn 't understand all Ms -thinks these animalslare suffering. What if they 're not c6ntrblIed ?fThey 'll hit the farmers hurt; You can 't' let* them go. They 'll do real damage to crops.'.' 1 Jerry, understands the farmers' point of View because he was born and; raised on a farm near here. What he doesn't understand ,is why his freedom to hunt and trap is threatened. I know, how many hours a man. can spend on a trapline. I know the hours he can be out in the cold stumbling about in the dark whi^e his dogs try to tree a coon. I know that to do both; with success, it takes man who is close to nature. We finished hooking my boat up. to Jerry's pickup. He was going to .drive: me home, shopk hartds twith Art Anderson, another. Ashkum resident who had gone out .df his ,way to help me. . \ , Somewhere )n this, town was Leo Ader ahdhis wife, Naomi. Iieo was working at the service station when I needed help. He had put me in contact with Jerry. If anyone deserved a Standard Oil award, he did. I forgot about the car now, the old Ford that had taken me to so many lakes, and on so many hunting trips. I had other things to be concerned about now. One of them was whether the legislature would take something more im portant from people like Jerry and me. Jury Frees Joliet Teen JOLIET, 111.. (UPI) - Randy DelRose, 18, has been found innocent in the murder of a 12- year-old boy who was shot and killed by a motorist while he and other boys, threw snowballs at passing autos last winter. A jury of seven women and five men deliberated about 75 minutes Thursday before returning the verdict. DelRose had been a passenger in a car driven by Richard Mitok Jr., 16, of Joliet, who is currently being held by the Illinois Youth Commission in connection with the slaying of Dennis Youngren. >; In closing arguments, defense attorney Michael Block said evidence showed it was Mitok who fired shots from a .22 caliber rifle at Youngren and other boys in an attempt to "scare" them. DelRose did not aid in the shootings, the attorney argued. Block said evidence indicated one of the boys hit Mitok's car with a snowball as he drove through the Marycrest subdivision of Joliet before picking up DelRose. Block said Mitok drove back to the scene with DelRose as a passenger. Will County Circuit Court Judge Michael Orenic ordered DelRose freed immediately.
