Page 34--THE HERALD. Provo. Utah. Sunday, April 6. 1975 Utah Women Lola Redford Advocates Use of Natural Energy LOLA REDFORD,' wife of movie actor Robert Redford, is an outspoken advocate on consumer protection of the environment. She expresses her opinion on this and other concerns of the day in an interview with The Daily Herald, held last week in Provo. Ladles of Elks Elect Officers The Provo Ladies of Elks held the election of officers on Wednesday evening. Chosen as president was Mrs. Rex Ainge; with Mrs. Jack Canto, vice president; Mrs. Dee Croft, second vice president; Mrs. Neal Kershner, third vice president; Mrs. Frank Camesecca Sr, treasurer; Mrs. Gary Waite, historian; Mrs. Leonard Kelly, auditor; Mrs. Oral Folster, secretary; Dorthy Lewis, parliamentarian; and Mrs. Eldon Barney, chaplain.

By RENEEC. NELSON, Women's Editor Lola Van Wagenen Redford is a self-motivated dynamo — interested in many things, and particularly concerned about the effects man has on his environment. She is the wife of movie actor Robert Redford, and projects the impression that she supports him on all his crusades for a better environment. However, one also sees her as a crusader in her own right. Her eyes sparkle as she tells about the solar home that the Trolley Square in Salt Lake City. Mr. Christeasen has done enough research on the subject that he was able to present some new ideas to a solar engineer when the engineer came over from Colorado. Redfords Promote Utah The Redfords have always been impressed with Utah talent and Utah scenery and have thus promoted, when possible, this facet of the state. (His film "Jeremiah Johnson" was filmed entirely in Utah.) "The state has such fantastic scenery," Lola observed. "We Redfords are planning to build in f« sports-oriented anyway and . * ° . _ . Int m rv^m it-it nm r\l t m r*l M fl C If 11 n O the center of 80 acres of land in a meadow near their present home on the east side of the Sundance mountains. The home will employ a natural energy system which will include the sun for heat and a wind-driven windmill for electricity. A backup system will be provided, but the natural system should ultimately be self-sustained, low in cost and efficient in supplying basic needs. Why a Solar Home In an interview with The Daily Herald, she told why they were building the home in Utah. "We have always loved the mountains," she said, "and this is home to us." She added that Utah is the perfect location for a solar home, since the amount of radiation received here is next to the highest in the country. "The first solar home," she continued, "was built in 1935 and there are now 92 such homes in the country." The system is not complex, she said. The sun will shine on collector plates composed of two layers of glass atop a plate of black galvanized steel. The steel plate gets very hot and a fan blows air over it carrying the heated air to a storage bin of rocks which absorb the heat. This hot air from the rocks is then blown through the house. She emphasized that even on an overcast day the home will heat up from the stored heat energy in the rocks. Another system can heat water using a round tube of glass and rays from the sun. The Redfords have read many books on solar energy including "Energy for Survival" by Wilson Clark and "Producing Your Own Power" by Rodall Press. They chose as their architect, Ab Christensen who designed love mountain climbing, skiing, water sports and horseback riding. We are going to plant some alfalfa for the horses and also a large garden with a root cellar to put it in. We hope to be totally self sufficient — to feel that we are our own master and not dependent on others. They plan to spend more time in Utah when their solar home is completed. "We will break ground when the snow melts and aim for six months in Utah, and someday even longer," she revealed. The Redford children love to come back to Provo where their grandparents, Frank and Phyllis Van Wagenen live, along with their 76 cousins. Shauna, 14, and son Jamie, 13 attend school in New York City. Little Amy is four-years-old. "We have many friends in New York," Lola explained, "but there is no privacy there. We used to be able to go for a walk in the evening, but that is no longer possible because someone invariably stops us for an autograph and sometimes literally manhandles us." "It is different in Utah," she continued. "Here the people know us, but they respect our need for a private life; there is much more courtesy.'' Environmental Concerns One of the reasons Lola and Bob remain in New York, in addition to his film commitments, is Lola's involvement as co-director of an organization called Consumer Action Now (CAN). The organization is divided into two sections, the lobbying legislative arm (which is not tax deductible) and the educational branch which includes Friends of CAN. "Everything the consumer buys has a negative or positive effect on the environment," Lola said. CAN is a New York City based operation concerned with the relationship between the consumer and his environment. Last year CAN received a grant from the Health, Education and Welfare Department (HEW) to bring the program into 12 pilot schools in District 25 of Queens. Lola indicated, "The reason the Queens District of New York City was chosen is because of the diversified population and enthusiastic reception it received by the people who ran the school district." The entire emphasis of CAN is on the positive — things that "can" be done to improve the environment. Working With Smithsonian She and Bob are also involved in a solar energy education project, and they are working in conjunction with the Smithsonian lastitute which will put a solar energy exhibition in the institute hall of "Space and Technology" in 1976. Several manufacturers of solar equipment will display their developments at the exhibit. Also working on this project is Michael Collins, space astronaut. An indication of the Refords' dedication to this natural'ehergy source was the recent premiere showing of Bob's film, "Waldo Pepper" where all the funds from the opening were donated to the solar project. "The solar energy program is so exciting," Lola continued. "It is something for right now." Last spring the CAN group coordinated their concerns, and by fall they all agreed that the energy system was the biggest problem. "It was one of those things of spontaneous combustion," Lola pointed out, "where minds meet in uniform agreement." So even though they are legal citizens of Utah, Lola hesitates to leave her New York based environmental program completely. "When you find an occupation that gives you dimension in your life, it is hard to give it up," she admitted. She is so devoted to her role that she attended a class last summer at Brigham Young University on consumer economics in order to expand her knowledge on the subject. Will Lobby in Washington When Robert Redford begins the filming of "All the President's Men," Lola will be in Washington, D.C. with him, but won't be sitting quietly at home. She will be lobbying on environmental issues, and will also serve on Senator Moss's Consumer Advisory Council which holds its first meeting April 22. Lola Redford is busy and involved. She is not simply the wife of a famous star but is a star herself — starring in her role as a consumer action advocate, as a promoter of quality family life, and as one who views life with depth and perspective. She is also creative in her outlook, and like her husband Bob, observes things with an artist's eye. Their attraction for each other was not haphazard. Lola was a drama and art major in college arid they saw in each other a mutual appreciation of things beautiful and in their natural state. This, then is the attraction they find in Utah — mountains and low country largely in a natural state, and a people warm and friendly, but not oppressive.

About Rarely-Seen Countries Redds Talk to Women's Club The Orem Women's Club met Wednesday at the Scera Lounge. Presenting the program were Mr. and Mrs. Joe Redd who discussed "Arts and Crafts from the Other Side of the World." They travelled around the world twice, last year visiting Iceland, the birthplace of Mrs. Redd's mother. They included in their program a look at some of the countries rarely visited. The first country they introduced was Nepal which is smaller than Utah and nestled against the Himalayan Mountains. It is the birthplace of Buddha and there are many temples in the country. Hinduism is also popular in the country and the two religions seem to thrive, according to the speakers. Nepal, they said, has only been open to the public for a short time, and includes a mixture of Tibet, India and Chinese. Everyone has a Holy Cow, and though they will drink the milk and eat the milk products, they will not eat the meat. The King of Nepal is called the King God. He waited three years to be crowned on the auspicious day that had been pre-set by the astrologers, and wore a crown with two million dollars worth of jewels on it, along with a bird-of-paradise feathers given to his father by President Dwight Eisenhower. The next country the speakers told of was India where the Taj Mahal is considered, they said, to be the most beautiful building in the world. It took 20,000 slaves 22 years to build and is inlaid with semi-precious stones. One of the Shah's palaces has been made into a hotel for tourists. Africa was the next stop. The Redds told of the beautiful carved animals from Africa, and of riding through open country where lions, zebras, cheetas and elephants were seen. The African elephant cannot be tamed, they said. Another interesting feature about these elephants is their reddish hue which comes from the red soil in Africa. In Morocco the Redds visited an art school where small girls were taught the art of making rugs and boys were taught to carve on brass. Iran was once Persia and they noted that it was the country of the Persian rugs. Mrs. Redd showed a purse that had been made from the zebra in Afghanistan. Mr. Redd concluded the program with a slide of the sun coming up over Mt. Everest. Conducting the meeting was the president, Mrs. Wesley Robertson. Hostesses were Mrs. Merlin Pinch and Mrs. Virginia Lewis. Prelude music was played by Mrs. Curg Madsen.
