\6 Gdlgsburo ftiaistfr-Moil, Golesburg, 111. Wednesday, Aufl. 8, 1973 & By RICHARD C. (m <*S HAIFA, Israel (IJPiji - An Elisraett scientist h«i come up plrtth a way to raftove the salt Ifrem sea water at less cost, he •desserts, than ever before. Cheaper WayTo Desalinate Sea Water Science Today & The scientist is l*o£ ^Ap-aham Kogan, who is trying •-^'to rid Israel of a serious T^ : pn)blefn--<iwindljng supplies of Sfresh water. To do «hat, he is convert** up to 8,000 gallons of sea wnfr io ran wnter a oay in a towering, erector set-like skeleton of steel girders. His is a pilot plant, built at a cost of $120,009 with government backing. Kogan said its success will lead to construction of another pilot desalination plant in 18 months wtti 10 times the capacity. He said the desalination process, begun » 19*9 in the industrial area of Israel's third cheaper anything tried in the field so far and could influence Israel's agricultural and industrial future. Simple Process The ordblem with other i involved. Kogan, a profc«w of aeronautical engineering at the Techntoh Institute of Tech* nology, is said to have cut the price of taking the salt out of sea water by 25 to 30 per cent. -— , The desalination process is as ™,desalination methods .now in'simple as boiling water, but to operation in the United States make it workable it has to be and in Israel is the expense I done on a big scale. In gFor Scholarships Junior College's Foundation ^Establishes Goal of $30,000 conventional plants, sea water is pumped in, boiled and run through a trough. Cold sea water is run in copper pipes above the trough. When the steam from the hot water touches the colder pipes, the vapor condenses and, in effect, it rains inside the plant. Big pans catch the "rain," which has become fresh water stt» the saM is not carried away by the vapora. One-Third Cfceaser What Kogm has done is to run two troughs virtually alongside each other, though it's easier said titan done. One trough carries hot sea water, the other cokt fresh water.

"It win cost us 24 or 25 cents par 1,000 gattont to produce the water in a 80 million gallon-a< lay plant," Kogan said.l "That's one-third cheaper than] anything else in the world." C The Carl Sandburg College C Foundation's Board of Trustees ^ hopes to raise 830,000 for scholarships for the 1973*74 academic •4- year. J. During July, the foundation - received approximately 85,000 toward the goal. Last year, 41 donors contributed 8X0,200 to the : foundation's scholarship fund to j provide financial aid for 61 vTlSandburg students. I * Other action taken at the Cotrustees' quarterly meeting last c "*month included: •~'Z —Authorization to print a new • brochure providing general in- formation and summarizing the C "foundation's activity to date. j —Authorisation to print certificates to be awarded to founda- lion donors. '£ —Filing the annual report of ;Z foundation activities with the Il­ linois secretary Of state. Information was also presented concerning withdrawal of federal support from Sandburg's Adult Learning Center. For over two years the center has provided pre-secondary and secondary instruction to adults in the area. The board appointed a committee to explore possible financial support for the center from the college foundation. The Sandburg Foundation is a non-profit Illinois corporation which gives financial assistance to students who would otherwise be unable to attend college. The foundation gives scholarships and grants and is viewed as supplementary to the efforts of family and student. Financial aid is awarded to students on the basis of need, academic achievement, character and promise. Sandburg College Will Offer Afro-American Credit Course B- Carl Sandburg College will of- p fer credit in Afro-American his- lt tory through the College-Level §H Examination Program (CLEP). CLEP Is a national program £t of credit by examination which has enabled thousands of peril^ sons to receive college credit for learning acquired, outside of the ~Z. classroom. The Afro-American history if~ test was constructed under the 2, direction of a committee of black educators in conjunction £ with the Educational Testing £> Service, Princeton, N.J. It will is£ be available for the first time j£ this month at approximately £ 650 CLEP test centers through­ ly out the country, including Sandburg. The test is designed to measure knowledge and understand' ing of material usually covered in a 1-semester survey course in Afro-American history, including African history prior to colonial America, the black experience from Colonial America to 1900, and the period of the 20th century. In addition to 34 CLEP subject examinations, there are five general examinations covering the basic liberal arts curriculum taught during the freshman and sophomore years of college. CLEP tests are open to anyone who feels that he can pass a college-level test, regardless of how he gained the required knowledge.

Hangs by Neck For 18 Hours In Elevator MANCHESTER, England (UPI) — Kevin McGough is lucky and knows it. The 18-year-old workman d'"-grd by his nsek for 18 hours in the shaft of a dumb waiter before he was rescued Tuesday by firemen. "I thought I had broken my neck," ha said. McGough dipped and was caught by the neck Monday by a cable when he went down a shaft at a demolition- site to retrieve a boot. "The lift (elevator) slipped and trapped me by the neck," he said. "I had a hard job to breathe and every time I moved, it got tighter." He said he shouted for help until he was hoarse, but no one heard him. Then, he said, he fell asleep. When finally called to the scene, firemen said they were afraid they would break McGougb's neck while removing him. "It was a very delicate operation," fireman Alan Murphy said, "because we had to irske sure that nothing fell on him and that his body did not slip and hang him." Two firemen climbed into the shaft with a special hydraulic jacking gear and freed McGough. "His injuries were minor, a few bruises around his face and neck," Murphy said. '"He was an excellent patient for us. He didn't shout or scream and in fact did not complain at all." OT.
