Page 14-THE HERALD, Provo, Utah, Tuesday, April 8, 1975 By Governor Rampton Vitro Tailings Hazard Emphasized ^^^ . ....... rnrwTtra the nilinere tint) By PETER GILLINS SALT LAKE CITY (UPI) Gov. Calvin L. Rampton has asked state and local health officials to warn businesses located within a half mile of the abandoned Vitro uranium mill that they operate in a hazardous area. He also requested that Salt Lake County force the firms provide adequate ventilation to; reduce the accumulation of radioactive gases blown from the field of uranium tailings. Salt Lake City-County Health Director Harry Gibbon said the 100-acre site will be posted and fenced by the end of this week. The governor said it would be at least fall before the Atomic Energy Commission completes an engineering study on how to remove the tailings, meaning it would be a year or more before they were moved. "In the meantime," Rampton said, "my concern is whether we are doing all we can to protect people in the area from radiation." The Vitro mill, closed more than a decade ago after the Utah uranium boom died out, is located in the middle of the populated Salt Lake Valley —at about 33rd South and 6th West. All that remains are a tall smokestake, a water tower and the dusty tailings. On windy days, radioactive radon gas is blown into the surrounding area, which includes a number of small businesses. The closest homes are about a half-mile away. "As a condition of continued operation, I think we should require adequate ventilation in those businesses," Rampton said. "In fairness to the workers, I think we ought to prepare a health bulletin pointing out the possibility of health hazards, although we don't know the extent of the hazards.'' Gibbon said, "We can say there is a specific health hazard, the extent of which we don't know. But we are sure of the hazard to someone working right on the pile and to .someone working in a closed building." However, Dr. Lynn Thatcher, deputy state health director in charge of air pollution, questioned the necessity of issuing the formal warnings. "Our air measurements aren't refined enough to determine the hazard," Thatcher said. "And it would be too costly to make the refined measurements necessary since we are going to :*:.:.x.:.:.:.:*:*x*:;:s:^ Damage Still Being Assessed From Earthquake, Aftershocks MALAD CITY, Idaho (UPI) — Officials in the Malad City area were still busy today attempting to assess the total damage from the earthquake which has been rocking the area since March 26. The first quake registered 4.7 on the Richter scale and was followed the next day with one registering a magnitude of 6.4 on the scale. The epicenter of the quake was about 10 miles south of Malad City on the Idaho-Utah border. Since the major quake March 27 there have been hundreds of aftershocks and several quakes which have registered above 4 on the Richter scale. Offcials said they were still finding structural damage to many homes and buildings in the area. They said old-style all- brick homes that were built before the 1934 Hansel Valley earthquake near here were the most severly damage. The officials said the Latter Day Saints chapel at Pleasantview, eight miles south of this community appeared to have received the most damage of public buildings in the area. Damage has forced the congregation to hold its services in a recreation hall until total damage has been assessed. Roads, bridges, overpasses and dams in the area have been checked but no damage has been uncovered. Mary Matthews of the Idaho Enterprise, a weekly newspaper, reported at the Lee Fuhriman —believed to be the epicenter — the quake burst granaries, spilling wheat, and also "made a shambles of the interior of the home on the farm. The house is unoccupied during the winter months. She said a tour of the area found alt farming without irrigation and "we could not see any homes with chimneys intact in the valley and several had been moved off their foundations, including an abandoned school house. A number of buildings appeared slightly tipped on their foundations." Mrs. Matthews said the tour of the area also turned up a large number of cracks in the snow and ice and that snow slides occurred just west of the Malad-Holbrook Summit. I Utah Boynton Heads School Board SALT LAKE CITY (UPI) Charles A. Boynton has been elected president of the board of trustees of Rowland Hall-St. Mark's School. Boynton is president of the Salt Lake Transportation Company. Also elected were Joseph Rosenblatt, vice president; Gilbert L. Shelton, treasurer and Mrs. Peggy Henrie, secretary. Pres. Grant's Daughter Dies Downtown Business Loss Feared LOGAN (UPI) — In an effort to combat the threatened defection of downtown shoppers to a new suburban mall, Mayor Desmond Anderson and the Downtown Merchants Committee are considering turning the clock back 50 vears. The development plan, which is still in the tentative stage, would turn the downtown area back to the look and feeling of the 1920s by trading modern store fronts in for the facades which lined Main Street half a century ago. Petition for Election Due Logan Circulation LOGAN (UPI) — The mayor's ad hoc committee on government reorganization will begin circulating petitions this week in an attemt to force a special election on a new form of city government. ' The committee decided at a weekend meeting to push for conversion to a mayor and council government, with five councilmen. Committee members will try to collect 1,100 signatures to force a May 20 election on a conversion from the present government of a mayor and three commissioners. "We believe the commisson form of government is outdated," said Carol Clay, committee chairman. She said a council would provide more representation to citizens. The committee asked the commission to order an election without waiting for the petition drive, but commissioners declined. The plan calls for installation of antique street lighting, benches, decorations and new brick sidewalks between 2nd SALT LAKE CITY (UPI) Anna Grant Midgley, daughter of the late president Heber J. Grant of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, has died in a »>utn and 3rd North. Salt Lake City rest home. Mrs. Midgley, 88, died Sunday of influenza.

Rites Set For Postmistress TALMADGE, Utah (UPI) Funeral services for Alice B. Sorensen, the postmaster of this Duchesne County town for 30 years, are scheduled Wednesday. Mrs. Sorensen died over the weekend of complications following surgery at a Salt Lake City hospital. SALT LAKE CITY (UPI) Prices received by Utah farmers and ranchers for livestock recovered slightly during March, but were generally well below the prices a year earlier, according to the Crop and Livestock Reporting Service. Small grain prices were down from a month earlier, as were potatoes and hay, the service reported Monday. Steers and heifers sold for $26.40 a hundredweight, up $1.20 from mid-February but well below the $41.10 cwt of mid- March 1974. Cows, at $19.10, were up a dime from the previous month but $12.40 below the previous March's average. Lambs, at $36.90, were up $1.20 and $2.70 for the month and year respectively, but sheep, at $10.80, were up $2.30 from February but down $4.40 from mid-March of 1974. Hogs dropped 50 cents during the month to an average of $35.50, down only 20 cents from a year earlier. Wheat averaged $3.47 a bushel during March, compared to $3.78 in February and $5.01 a year earlier. Barley, at $2.50 a bushel, was down 24 cents from Feburary and 15 cents under last year. SALT LAKE CITY (UPI) The conservative sponsors of a recall law petition drive in Utah have reacted with some name- calling of their own to an attack by State Democratic Chairman John Klas. American Party of Utah Chairman Robert Trepanier and right wing radio talk show host Bob Salter, executive director of Taxpayers Action Council, issued statements Monday denouncing Klas as a tool of professional politicians. Klas attacked the sponsors of the recall petition in a weekend speech, saving "the proposed election recall law would be a simple technique of harassment employed by the American Party," aimed at intimidating lawmakers and discouraging them from taking stands on temporarily unpopular issues. Trepanier said the battle lines have now been drawn on the issue. "On one side is Mr. Klas, the Democratic Party and the professional politicians who think they have the God-given right to remain in office once they are elected," the Ameri- can Party chieftain said. "On the other side of this conflict are pro-American forces which believe that the people, who delegated their power to their elected representatives in the first place, should have the power to remove them at any time they, the people, see fit." Trepanier, who challenged Klas to a debate of the issue, said that the American Party is just one of several groups backing the petition drive, which is headed by "The Concerned Citizens for Recall," chaired by Salter. In a separate news release, delivered to the media by American Party officials, Salter said Klas was "showing his paranoia of the American Party" by naming it as the petition drive's sponsor. Salter said the Taxpayers Action Council initiated the drive and had invited other groups to join it in another organization called "The Concerned Citizens for Recall." "We have even invited Democrats, but I doubt Mr. Klas would attend for there are no political considerations involved," Salter said. Return of Bad Weather Hampers Hunt for Plane Commissioner Attends School BRIGHAM CITY, Utah (UPI) —The chairman of the Box Elder Leaders School. Don Chase is representing Utah this week at the Boulder, Colo, school. More than 100 commissioners from the West will learn how to identify and deal with the problems of their areas at the school. The program is conducted by the Department of Agriculture. ESCALANTE, Utah (UPI) The return of winter has virtually halted the search for a light plane believed down in southern Utah with one man aboard. Garfield County Sheriff Keith Fackrell said Monday he had called off the ground search until the snow melts. "We've covered all leads. There's nothing we can do until the snow melts and we can get into the snow-covered areas," Fackrell said. The Utah Civil Air Patrol suspended its search last Wednesday until the area thaws to a point where pilots could spot "We'd need four or five straight good days," said a CAP officials. Dr. Ivan Kazan's light plane disappeared March 26 on a flight from Escalante to Page, Ariz. Kazan operated rural medical clinics in Escalante, Page and Panguitch, U$ah. Authorities also reported no progress in attempts to track down a report that five backpackers were stranded in the wild mountains near Rainbow Bridge on Lake Powell. Fackrell said a woman aboard a civilian aircraft aiding in the seach for Kazan said she saw five persons in a canyon south of the bridge. She said they appeared to be signalling for help. however, Fackrell said, none of the other four persons in the plane saw the hikers, and search missions on the ground and in the air have failed to turn up any sign of them. He said a boat-and-foot search in the area by the Coconino County, Ariz., Sheriff's Office failed to locate the party. San Juan County Sheriff Rigby Wright said he flew over the area during the weekend and saw nothing suggesting lost or injured hikers. He said he would continue his air search if any further reports corroborated the sighting. remove the pilings within a year or so." The governor's science adviser, Dr. Richard Turley, said some of the tailings had been taken without permission in the past for use as fill material. He said 35 homes in the county were sitting atop the radioactive dirt, Rampton and the health officials decided to wait until the AEC study is completed before warning the residents of the homes. The governor asked state health director Lyman Olsen if there were any cases of lung cancer or other radiation type illnesses among the residents of the houses. Olsen said no, adding that the mobility of the population made long-range analysis impossible. Turley said the fill produced a very, very low concentration of radioactivity and doubted it was a health hazard. "It might be low," Gibbon added. "But over a 24-hour period, it's more significant." Police Seek Suspect CLEARFIELD, Utah (UPI) Police were circulating a composite drawing among area businessmen today in an effort to locate the armed rapist who kidnapped and assaulted a teenage girl over the weekend. Chief A. 0. Archuletta said the drawing of the rapist had been circulated to all Utah police agencies. The 17-year-old girl told police she was driving along Pacific Street in Clearfield early Saturday morning when she saw someone flagging her down with a flashlight. She said she stopped, thinking the man might be a police officer. Instead, she told investigators, the man shoved an automatic pistol at her and commandeered the car. Archuletta said the rapist ordered the girl to drive "all over Weber County" before stopping in the Rainbow Gardens area of Ogden and assaulting her. He eventually got out of the car near Ogden Canyon. The girl, who Archuletta said was unconscious through much of her ordeal, was found later by a passing motorist, slumped over the wheel of her car where she stopped in Ogden after the rapist left her. The girl was hospitalized after the attack, and was released Sunday. Bonding Board Gets Appointment SALT LAKE CITY (UPI) Gov. Calvin L. Rampton has appointed Mountain Fuel Supply Co. President B.Z. Kastler to a state board of bonding commissioners which will supervise the sale of nearly $70 million in state building bonds. The commission, which also includes Rampton and State Treasurer David L. Duncan, conducted its first meeting today to plan the sale of the bonds. The three agreed to go to New York City April 18 to meet with Wall Street bonding experts and find out what kind of a deal the state can get. They also decided to form an advisory council made up of Utah bankers to provide guidance on the bond sale. Proceeds from the bond sale will finance a $35-million expansion of the University of Utah Medical School and Hospital, and two dozen other projects around the state, including technical education facilities in Provo, Salt Lake City, Vernal, Richfield and St. George. Kastler also served as the appointed member of the bonding commission in 1965 when the state sold its first massive building bond issue, $67 million. Aluminum Turned In SALT LAKE CITY (UPI) Salt Lakers turned in six tons of used aluminum worth $1,800 during the first week of operation of a Reynolds Aluminum recycling center. The center pays 15 cents a pound or $300 a ton for used cans, TV dinner trays and other types of aluminum. It formally opened March 25 and had its biggest day March 29 when people turned in nearly 2,900 pounds. Legal Notices NOTICE TO CREDITORS Probate No. 17,834 Estate of Heinz Dahmen, deceased.
