V h r Page Sit HOPE STAR, HOPE, ARKANSAS Monday, October 21, 1946 State Hospital Seeks More Upkeep Funds Little Rock. Oct. 21 — (UP) — Arkansas s 1947 legislature will be asked for more than S3.025.000 annually for upkeep of the State Hospital for Nervous Diseases. .Col- lowing a meeting' of the board of control of the institution yesterday. The board -members approved a proposed budget which more than doubles the SI.503.000 now supporting the institution. :l*rinciDle increases in the tentative outline were in salaries to the entire statf, higher focd allowances lor patients and replacements and repairs in buildings and equipment. Although Dr. N. T. Hoollis, acting superintendent of the hospital, requested boosts in pay, the board — confident of public backing — approved a motion by Board Member C. S. McSwain to hike the • salaries even more. McSwain suggested a pay of 57,500 annually ior the superintendent — ;sl,500 above the §6,000 suggested by Hollis. McSwain advocated the higher salaries in an effort to induce competent men to accept positions at the hospital. The board also approved a suggestion by Dr. Hollis that war attendants work only 8 hours daily instead of 12 as now. And the superintendent recommended pay mcreases .for the attendants plus a maintenance subsistance in addition to their salaries. - The legislature will also be asked to increase the food appropriation from $400,000 to $800,000, due to higher food costs and the need for better diets. The board took no action on filling permanently the vacancy created by the recent resignation of Dr. A. C. Kolb as superintendent of the hospital. -Such action, they said, should await the appointment of " fifth hoard member by Governor Ben Laey to replace Henry Donham Oi.,.uiUie ,hocK.

Scientists forecast that within three years they can demonstrate a practicable method of opsration. Thus they hcpe to accomplish in a few years what experts of many nations have been trying to do for decades. 1 -f The government is spending S30,- 000,000 to develop fuel and oil from shale and other sources. Statistics of the American Institute- show Americans conniRi more than !.500,000.000 barrels oil a, year. The proved raserve is around 20,453,231,000 barrels, than a 20 - year supply. ."Reserve Large But Dr. W. C. Shroeder. chief of the Office of Synthetic Liquid Fuels of the Bureau of Mines, estimates that oil shale reserves of the United States contain four or five times this much recoverable oil, or about 92.000,000,000 barrels. About 76,000,000,000 barrels or 82 per cent of the recoverable total are in the Green River formation of Colorado, Wyoming and Utah. Another major deposit is in the new Albany formation of Indiana, Kentucky and Ohio. Texas and Nevada have known isolated deposits, and smaller beds are found in 13 Other states. The Navy, greatest user of power jn the nation, believes these oil shale deposits so important to national security that 163,484 acres of shale reserves have been set aside for it. Costs Are High Without the aid of government subsidies'or high tariffs, large scale oil shale industries have never existed in any cc.untry during peacetime because of the competition of petroleum.

Some by-pro ducts include detergenls, insecticides, plant sprays, resins, solvents emulsifying agents, medicinal chemical bases, dyes, phenols, cresols and numerous organic sulphur and nitrogen chemical compounds. During the war Germany developed new processes and these now are available to American scientists. Sweden also has a unique oil shale project. Experts of the Bureau of Mines say Swedish engineers drilled holes into near - the - surface shale beds. They introduced electricity. The lemperalure of the ground was raised until the oil va porized and escaped through the holes. The vapor then was condensed and refined, producing oil. Tropic Plants Grown A queer by - product of this project was reported. The intense heat was said to make it possible to grow sub - tropical vegetation in a Climate distinctly ncgrthern. Swedish experts renortedlv estimated the soil warmth might last for years plants. Such a method is not expected in permitting the growing of exotic American shale areas. For one thing vast quantities of electricity are not available, and in addition much of the shale so.il isn't suf ficiently rich for crops. Recovery of oil from shale re quires three processes: mining th< shale retorting or "frying" th oil from the shale and refining the crude oil obtained from shale.

His Majesty the Mahafajadhiraj, or King, Tri- buhubana Bir Bikram, is really .a figurehead. The job is done by the Maharaja, or prime minister, who is also military commander in chief. Under him is a council consisting of relatives of the king and a few others. The country's former savage legal code, with ordeals by fire and water and punishments by mutilalion and lorturc, was abolished in 1851. Treason, rebellion and desertion are punishable by death. Murder and the killing of cows is a capital offense. Manslaughter and Ihe maiming of cows brings life imprisonment. Brahmins and women are exempt from capital punishment.
